  5. Continue with normal rotation...

Venthyr Opener:

  1. Prioritise maintaining Deep Wounds through Colossus Smash / Warbreaker
  2. Bladestorm and Mortal Strike while using Condemn as much as possible until the target is below 80% HP
  3. Continue with normal rotation...


  1. Colossus Smash / Warbreaker
  2. Bladestorm
  3. Cleave (if talented)
  4. Overpower (with Dreadnaught)
  5. Skullsplitter (if under 40 Rage)
  6. Whirlwind


Charge Weaving:

  • Have a swing timer on your UI (e.g. Weakaura or Quartz)
  • Wait for an auto-attack to complete before running away from the boss to Charge back in
  • Keep yourself at max melee range of your target as much as possible. This will reduce the amount you need to run and will make it less likely your next auto attack is late.
