Basic Build

 

Basic Build

 

If you are newer to the Valkyrie, you may want to start off with a basic build like this. This will allow you to customize your valkyrie to your playstyle while still retaining the main sources of your dps. You could choose to glyph Energetic Spinning Death if you are having trouble with Runeburst or maybe Energetic Glaive Strike for more oppertunities to weild a double runemark-giving skill. Maybe you're struggling with mobility and glyph Energetic Charge or maybe you're struggling to stay alive and decide to glyph Restorative Maelstrom and Restorative Balder's Tears. Any way you look at it, this is your valkyrie and you should be able to play your class however you deem fit. Pick a playstyle that works for you, work out the kinks, and then worry about damage. 

 

Skeleton Glyphs

 

Skeleton Glyphs

 

These are the most common glyphs found in every build.

 

Dreamslash Build

 

Dreamslash Build

 

This build is nice because it takes use of Dreamslash and turns it into a pretty good damage contributor. While you lose out on not having some extra firepower on Bloodflower, Bloodflower still hits pretty hard while Dreamslash does substantially more damage throughout the fight. 

 

Full Bloodflower Build

 

Bloodflower Build

 

This build is very nice because it is beginner friendly. Even if the boss doesn't do a lot of attacking and you don't need to roll reset on Evasion, if you are new or are running harder content than you are used to, this build can come in handy. 

 

Balder's Tear Build

 

Balder's Tear Build

 

You can use Balder's Tears to take a massive hit in certain dungeons while continuously attacking the boss and survive (examples: Lachelith's Swing in RMHM and RK9's S-Bomb in RK9NM).

 

Brutal Dreamslash with Titanbane

 

Brutal Dreamslash

 

Disclaimer: This build is purely just to drive the point home that you should experiment yourselves. 

 

This build is quite unorthodox and would be very impractical for ordinary use because of the glyphs that it has taken. However in ideal situations where the boss dies in 2 minutes or less and the boss went into knocked down states correctly allowing you to capitalize on Brutal Dreamslash, this build would in fact merit higher dps. 

 

Rotations

 

Non-Ragnarok Rotation:

 

Because the "priority" is Ragnarok phase, the focus outside of Ragnarok is building Ragnarok points. The best ways to do this are:

Bloodflower and Bloodflower resets (Bloodflower -> Evasion -> Bloodflower)

Stacking 7 Runemarks as quick as possible - without going over 7 (unless Glaive Strike or Maelstrom right before beginning Ragnarok)- and Runeburst'ing (always from behind) until you can use Shining Crescent or Ragnarok.

 

Ragnarok Rotations:

Maelstrom -> Spinning Death x3 (make sure all three hits hit or the glyph won't proc) -> Backstab -> Shining Crescent x2.
