Rotation Tips

  • This loadout is great for melee and mid-range situations. Blight [3] requires to have enemies nearby to apply Damage over Time
  • Solo Rotation allows player to spend measured power to kill enemies fast.
  • Alerts and Raids Rotation has high-power consumption making it only viable when a controller is in the group.
  • These Rotations focus on dealing heavy damage with Purify (Sacred Light [1] or Divine Light [4]) effects.
    • Plague [2] and Blight [3] required Purify effect for dealing additional damage to enemies
  • Missing one of the Celestial Combo will heavily impact your damage output which is why players need to master their Taps and Holds to always do the Combos perfectly

  1. Thanks. That’s what I needed to know. The weapon I’m using is bow rightnow what kind of power rothhations should I be trying?

  2. Why smite and retribution? They only give a 35% damage buff. Why not Benediction for better damage? Maybe I’m missing somthing as this power is new to me. Can you give me some details?

      Hi Superpanda91

      Smite, Retribution, and Defile are used for range DPS, although Retribution‘s damage increasing is 35%, it does heavy damage to your enemies. Personally in melee, I use Retribution, Admonish, and Death Mark.

      Benediction is a damage buff that increase your damage for a short time, but it doesn’t make instant damage or damage over time and has long cooldown, thats why it is not considered on this loadout.

      Celestial DPS makes a lot of damage with the most basics powers on the trees and their combos. There is no need to use difficult combos just make fast and heavy damage.

    • If you combo Benediction into Malediction you get a 12 tick DoT. I have been running Celest for a few months now and I can keep up or exceed any DPS in the game with only using a 1/4 of the power they do. I use Anoint then straight into male/bale combo everytime it cools down. Now of course I only do that in RAIDS where I have trollers. I am a little more reserved in Alerts and Duos

      Hi EvL Raiden, thanks for your comment. Im sure this tip will be helpful. In fact, we will consider it when we make updates for this Guide 🙂

  3. Very interesting loadout, do you suggest a melee-based or ranged-based weapon choice for this?

    • dcuobloguide Post author

      Hi Arzon, choosing your weapon is not about what powers you have but how comfortable you feel about using it and its combos.

      As DPS, i prefer to use melee-based weapons such as Dual Wield, One Handed or Brawling. However, if you prefer ranged-based weapon you can try rifle which is the most powerful ranged weapon and has fast combos.
