A build used for raiding whose buffs stack with an Archon already in your group. It utilizes Mystic for the synergy buffs and Molten Wave -Fury Blast for the damage portion.

This role is intended to provide the support buffs that stack with Archons buffs in addition to providing as much damage as possible. This is done with the often used Molten Wave .- Fury Blast rotation that is familiar.  This is not a raid wide support caster who can function alone without a support, so it is actually a damage dealer. Because of the additional support abilities offered however it may be considered support.

We are sacrificing top damage for buffs that will stack with an Archon and there is only one of these builds worth running in a raid at a time. If using another support you should check prior to see which buffs will stack with your raid and adjust if necessary.

Standard Rotation

This build uses the standard, intended rotation of Primalist where you vary between fury and cunning for the high damage portion. This is something many Primalists may never have done because of the movement towards either pure fury or the rare cunning spec. Because it does in part use Molten Wave/Fury Blast  and Scything Strike you can  improve your damage if you are just using the basic rotation.

  1. Fury Macro x1
  2. Molten Wave

  4. Thresher’s Maw

Opener²

Repeat until Air Lash is about expired. Use Molten Wave then cast Air Lash, bringing you back to harmony then start over.

Notes 

Be aware of the following

  • Molten Wave stacks at 3, use a Karuul Alert
  • Keep Perfect Harmony up, after using abilities that push in between Fury and Cunning
  • Use Fury Blast or Molten Wave when you get a proc for Scything Strike which is 110% increae
  • Manually using Scything Strike is an 85% damage increase
  • The damage portion is detailed in our Molten Wave – Fury Blast guide for more details
  • Air Lash can get you back into Harmony after a Molten Wave.
