    Default 4.1 1(2) Button OP Paragon PVP

    Making this guide just to show how broken Paragon is right now, and to allow anyone not knowing how easy this is to catch up in the Nukefest that is modern PVP. I am in no way saying that this is the best PVP Paragon spec, because it isn't. Note that this is not a true 1 button build sadly, as you will be using a 2nd button occasionally. Enjoy!

    The Build:
    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...GGli/8gZg|PYP0

    Legendaries:
    Paragon- Unleashed, Rising Waterfall, Alacrity
    Paladin- Retaliation
    Warlord- Sergeant's Order

    Buffs:
    Way of the Wind, Way of the Sun, Recovery Posture, Focus of Body
    (Redo Focus of Body when you die, Way of the Wind will be your only Buff that gets purged sporadically)

    The Macro:

    #show Alacrity
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Turn the Blade
    cast grasping the horizon
    use warmonger's charm
    use reliquary of rage
    cast Alacrity
    cast Combat Focus
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast sergeant's order
    cast Final Blessing
    cast Rising Waterfall
    cast Reaping Harvest
    cast Death Touch
    cast Tranquility
    cast Setting Moon
    cast backhand
    cast retaliation
    cast Shield of Will

    (Remove Reliquary of Rage and Warmonger's Charm if you don't own them)

    "WTF?! No wai! You use builders, finishers, and cd's in a macro!?" - Yup. Sure do, and it's been a pleasure mowing you all down with 1 button.
    Note: You'll notice there is no Open the Stream in this macro. In WF's it is a waste of a GCD and can't be used to start combat. If you are in a WF, and in melee, and have already started attacking, then you don't have time for a 15 second ramp-time for it to matter. Most players will die before then.

    Additional Abilities / How to Play:
    Place Shifting Blades on it's own button to use at 3AP whenever it is off CD. This is massive and also your only other needed button.

    Thread the Trees and Fleet of Foot are your Charge/Sprint. Throw them on your bar too.
    Predictable Movements and Wrist Strike are your Stun/Debilitate.
    Break Free and Fading Light are your get out of jail cards. They can be macro'd into the 1 button, but they are better used on their own when really needed.
    Make sure to go within melee range as much as possible. Retaliation is a melee attack and it both increases your Block mitigation by 30% (passive talent in Warlord Tree), and also deals damage to anyone that hits you for 6 seconds. Retaliation dps can be huge if you have a healer.

    Finally, the proof of this broken spec:

    Note that these images are over 2min, not just a burst from SO.

    (1/3rd the team kills, 9Mil damage done, over 1mil self-healed)

    With this 1 button spec you can also farm anything from leveling, major rifts, quests, dungeons, Onslaughts, ect. Everything but raids. Pulls ~350k ST and 450k+ AOE if used with Sweeping Blades.
    Personally, I hope they add some complexity to this build and bring back it's viability in the game outside of PVP.
    Thanks for reading and goodluck!

    YEA BUT ROGUES CAN STEALTH.

    CHECKMATE WARRIORS.

    For real though, that's what happens when Alacrity and GtH go from cds to almost 100% uptime and the soul is based around contextual builders. 1 button Para isn't new but it was never this potent.

    Pics broke and I'm too lazy to reupload new ones from another host.
    Big damage, moderate passive self-heals, and lots of kills. Still pewpews just as hard in 4.2 and can be used to easily do any of the 65+ content including new Vostigar peaks. Multiple elites at a time.
