    since you are not burn duration capped, and being capped on burn duration will have the highest impact in PVE.

    Ideally, rework some of your gear to hit 100% burn duration, then go with Balthazar.

    But they both have same burn duration?

    I think Cyninja means to get some smoldering sigils (+20% burn duration) and pieces of viper gear. Currently if you look at condi firebrand they (most of the common build sites) use a mix of grieving, viper, and sinister with a earth sigil for bleed on crit. The quickness condi firebrand on the other hand uses viper gear + firebrand rune + smoldering sigil.
