SB Fractal build ideas

Do any of you run fractals as soulbeast and are able to keep up with other dps monsters? If so, what kind of build are you running? I'm guessing d/axe and greatsword is ideal with marksmanship/BM/SB but not really sure.

Thanks

    Soulbeast is in a very good spot for fractals, DPS and meta-wise.
    When you have FB+Rev take frost spirit. If you have a Chrono+Druid take frost trap instead.

    Running beast mastery + marksmanship + soulbest is also correct.

    Soulbeasts issue is that many skills locks you in place (GS#5; F2; F3; Axe#5). Your DPS is also very dependant on Twice as Vicious (5% dmg after CCing) and Predator's Onslaught (15% dmg on a disabled foe) and the Impact Sigil (10% dmg ona disabled foe). If your burst and CC doesn't align your DPS will suffer.

    Thankfully since the most recent balance patch we can keep up Twice as Vicious pretty much all the time. Getting used to a good raid rotation is important since you can accidentally cancel a lot of these skills. Fractals also have you moving a lot more so you are likely to get some nice use out of GS 3 and dagger 3 or sword 2 depending on which of those you choose.
