Looking for a condi weaver open world build that will be sturdy enough to take on unknown content without relying on downstate dps.
I want to go back to my weaver, which I switched from in favor of a mirage. I really fell in love with the weaver after PoF came out, and loved the hybrid/condi version of it with sword. My only beef was the lack of flexibility in range. Some mobs punish hard for melee, and the fact you cannot switch mid-combat reduces the flexibility of the class for me.
Since then I got spoiled by the tankyness, utility and mobility of condi mirage - even with full viper gear and almost no defenaive traits. Most of the time the mirage mirror (esecially with tormenting runes) would allow you to stay toe-to-toe, and switch to staff/scepter to kill from range once you are out of tricks, while clones distract the mobs.
I remember before on weaver being decent enough to keep myself alive with fire/arcane/weaver, mostly offensive traits and some rabid (mostly viper) gear to not drop instantly.
After all the buffs and changes I wonder if there is any build you would suggest to solo content. I know most things can be done solo once you know the encounter and class enough, but I am looking for a general build that would also be sturdy enough to take on unknowns.
I know a mix of fire (dps), earth (def and dps) and arcane (utility) traitlines all fit with condi, but I have to pick two and they can all be used, depending on build.
And on that note - how much of the damage is power responsible for? Do I take a massive hit to dps/burst by switching, say, viper to trailblazer?
Thanks in advance!
