This rotation makes use of the Blackrose Prison Dual Wield Axes on the backbar, and a 2H weapon on the frontbar. The Blackrose Prison Axes on the backbar to increase the twin blunt and blade bleeding effect. The main priority skills are:

- Deadly Cloak, grants the Spectral Cloak buff for up-to 12 seconds providing the ticks are doing damage.

- Blighted Blastbones, which should ideally be cast as close to 1-in-3 skills, as possible Deadly Cloak, Rending Slashes, Carve and Consuming Trap each last 10 seconds so these skills, therefore, form the backbone of the rotation.

Carve also has a relatively strong Direct Damage portion, so this can be recast early if more upfront damage is needed in favour of refreshing another DOT.

If you are using the other morph of Carve (Brawler), then you can slot Skull (or Wrecking Blow) and use this instead, for single target damage situations.

Use Executioner as an execute, as early as 30% but definitely after 25% and reapply all DOTs, after that only keep your main skills active. In short fights where you won't get a full duration of DOT recasts, ensure DOTs are running one last time before 25%, then use Executioner the rest of the way.

Start with Archer


Blastbones - Deadly Cloak - Rending Slashes

Blastbones - Barbed Trap/Archer (alternate) - Carve Blastbones - Siphon - Soul Trap - Carve

In Execute, replace Carve and Soul Trap with Executioner. In the last few seconds of the fight, only cast Executioner.
