Looking for advice on what facets to run while zerging. I've watched several videos and I don't see any consistent choices, and was wondering what experienced Hammer Backline players use.
At one point I ran with Darkness, Strength and Elements up, activating Elemental Blast as soon as the fight started, leaving me a -4 upkeep which I thought was perfect.
Then after watching several videos I noticed players not bothering with Facet of Darkness, so I tried running with Strength, Elements and Light active at all times, which again is a -4 upkeep. That seems to work well, but I was wondering if running Elements during combat is a mistake, given the chance the swiftness boon can be corrupted into crippled.
So now I'm thinking:
Out of combat: Light, Elements, Strength
In combat: Light + Strength, use Elemental Blast on cooldown, and Chaotic Release when needed.
The obvious answer would be to ask the comm, but I run with pugs and most don't assign such details -they mainly focus on dome + veil cooldowns.
