Rotation Tips

  • Solo Rotation allows player to be powered all the time by spending low power in battle
  • 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 Plasma Burn effects. It is vital to have your enemies Plasma Burned all the time (Relentless Anger [4M], Galling Eruption [5], and Plasma Retch [4R] ) in order to deal great damage with Outrage [1], Revenge [2M], Frenetic Bombardment [2R], and Dreadful Blast [3R]
  • In Defensive Rotation, Severe Punishment [3M] grants you the Enrage effect making you virtually invincible for 8 seconds until Rage Crashing.
    • You must coordinate your Outrage [1]Revenge [2M] and their Rage Combos attacks to be performed while Rage Crashing to ignored its damage caused. 
    • Mastering the time of Rage Crash will make you fight against powerful NPCs without being knocked out

  1. I’ve had my rage for a good while now, I’ve followed your guides all the way through my rage journey.. Since the revamp, my rage is getting destroyed on damage pve wise. And I’m not doubting your guides.. Is it best to change to a different power or will it soon even out?

      Hello H4RP3R, Rage has a great damage output while using Melee Rotation. However, with stats revamp Skill points makes all the difference by increasing your Might and Critical Damage. So if your character skill points are low, no matter what power you use, the result will be the same.

      In our reasearch, Nature, Earth, and Gadgets (Melee only) dealt great damage but we tested with 200 SP and 190 CR. It is important to understand all powers are balanced now so if our rage superpowered guide is not dealing enough damage, it may need to find another focus (weapon master or hybrid). As soon as we finish all our Role Guides we will reevaluate our Power guides to provide alternate Focus Guides where needed

    • Thanks for the reply! Another question was the rage 190sp? I’m currently only 189cr 158sp so maybe you’re correct and this was the problem, obviously like you said the SP are more of an increase now than they used to be, also big fan of your builds!!

      Rage 200 Skill Points and 190 Combat Rating. At the moment, having 200 skill points is considered a great amount, having more than 250 is excellent for your role
