    So I really love the void knight build btw, it's been really fun to play I ended up discovering more things that I believe are worth bringing up.

    Legendary Reckless Strike is both a truth and a lie at the same time, it does refresh when skills from other souls are used but after a certain amount of refreshes it stops refreshing, idk if this is even useful information but since it's legendary effect helps a lot in gaining pacts I've been putting it on an easy to access part of the bar.

    Also on your extra macro, I feel like Void Storm should be above Ragestorm, although Ragestorm does consume pacts it doesn't get any modification from the consumption of pacts so it does significantly less damage than Voidstorm altogether. You probably already know this but I still feel like it should be pointed out.

    Hoping this info helps out. Like I said this soul is pretty fun to play.

    Yes legendary Reckless Strike refreshes ca. 20 times before blocking it and running out.

    Rage Storm: Requires a melee target and spreads damage around that target. Technically a melee hit with benefits. It also proccs Destructive Forces (Reckless Strike, Rage Storm and Devouring Blow trigger it| 4th row in the skilltree below the green one)

    Void Storm does a Flat aoe hit without demanding a target.


    That macro is mainly meant as a pact consumer button.
    Last i checked, Rage Storm + Eternal Destructive Forces > Void Storm dmg wise.

    Void Storm here acts as a backup when the VK's target is not infront of him in melee range. So Void Storm acts as a pact consuming- and higher damage option before falling back to Tempest.

    Target aoe vs independent aoe:

    When you are standing in 100 mobs, Rage Storm will always hit your target (boss). Raw independent aoe swings like Void Storm or Tempest may not hit the boss for many gcd's.
    So besides gimmics like Destructive Forces, a target + aoe effect (Cleric hammer) is preferable as it gives tanks more control. It will reliably bind and damage the boss/ priority target and use the aoe more of a splash effect.

    At least how i see it. Feel free to test around!

    Reworked (mainly VK) after Stand Tall! changes.

    Makeshift eternal loop is still about applying Guardbuffs aswell as Accord of the Rift / Protector's Fury with the Eternal running.

    Stand Tall eternal-looping was never a ST based thing but occours with all abilities/buffs that add flat healing %. - such as leggy Liberation Treatment.

    Guardbuffs will only inject st heals.
    However this allows to still re-inject 1- 5 eternal boni on Vk & Pala, able to amp 58Vk up to 1mil-1.5mil hps.

    Update your build&macros

    Cant say about 1st and 2nd build but trash panda build looks absolutely trashy. First of all you dont need SPE's, you should go EoA as warrior ASAP after leveling your character to 70.

    This is absolutely god mode, which allows you to tank Allajax without heals with green gear without eternal weapon. Remember that all you know about EoA tanking is a lie. You should maintain your L.Retaliation, make few hits and lose your threat as soon as possible, so it allows you to use your taunt and take less damage. 18wc IWY/WSU/CYB healing is insane, dont waste your energy for anything other including threat generation. Never use your Deep Breaths/ST if you dont have eternal weapon. Just heal yourself when you take damage. If you drop below 60% hp use your Shield Defense or Phalanx.
    UPD: in EoA set this one is truly immortal without EW. You can even save people from Smash without Intercept by using Phalanx / Wall of Light on them
    UPD2: you usually want to switch to 40/36 healing hybrid if you have EoA gear for additional utility if you group have +- low dps (VK for Allajax)
    UPD3: for Frezhak you need perfect threat build if you go "usual way". For fair way you can just use taunt.

    In Shas's world you should never fix absurd if it's about Shas's favorite playstyle.
