Traits and Skills

Template code:



  • Full Celestial
  • Runes of the Krait
  • Scepter/Warhorn Strength/Blood


The sigils are very flexible so pick what you like. Cele can be replaced with Viper (higher dps), Trailblazer (higher tank), or Dire (budget). If using dire, swap sigils to Bursting + Agony. Dagger can be used in place of Scepter for a good AOE option.
