    I guess you mean power dps.
    In that case Shiro/Jalis and Shiro/Glint does power dps. Do not stick to only one, go swapping around whenever your enery meter goes nearly to 0.

    Among the core legends, Shiro and Jalis for power dps (honestly with the addition of Battle Scars/Dance of Death, Jalis is better for burst due to how often the hammers can proc). For condi dps, it's Mallyx.

    Basically, only Ventari is bad for damage, anything else you can make it work.

    Kalla can also work as power dps (at least in raid its better than glint)

    Kalla/Shiro is currently best in slot for power dps, but Jalis and glint are decent options as well (instead of kalla)

    I use Jalis/Glint for Power DPS, although I mainly camp Glint for the buffs.
    Before Empty Vessel got murdered, I used to regularly Switch to Jalis and just pop the hammers, now it's rather rare.

    Shiro can procc DoD aswell and it does way more damage than jalis.
    Shiro, Kalla, Glint are dps legends for power and Mallyx, Kalla for condi.
    Ventari and jalis are utility.

    None of the legends are pure dps but some are pure support and this is a major design flaw. Only 1skill is a dps skill on shiro. 1 on mallyx etc. All legends try to be jack of all trades. This becomes super annoying in fractals since legends are taken for just 1 specific skill most of the time.

    Everything can proc DoD, but hammers can proc multiple stacks nearly instantly, especially against multiple enemies, which is great for burst following sword 4. Basically, for base rev, what I do is start in Shiro, use Jade Winds, swap to Jallis and use hammers and sword 4. It's insane burst damage.

    You could start in kalla, drop ice and darkrazor. swap to shiro and start with 75 energy, use citadel + sw4 +sw2. Leagues higher burst.

    Well obviously as a renegade, you are not going to pick Shiro+Jalis.

    I'm talking base rev here. Still, for burst situations, proccing all the stacks of Battle Scars is better damage than Impossible Odds.
