TSW Guides – “Blue Mountain Special”
Chaos / AR – Survival Build
The Blue Mountain Specials are 400 point survival builds that are built around dps and healing. The builds are targeted at 400 points, which is approximately the number of points you will have at QL 6.
These builds are not intended to be “end-game” builds, they are solo friendly survival builds that should help you live longer when moving out of Savage Coast into the Blue Mountains. While these builds are not guaranteed to survive all fights in Blue Mountain (some fights in BM have special effects that hinder success with some builds), it is a good direction for progression.
Note: If you can not find the ability in your wheel, click on the menu to the right of your wheel screen, and do a search on the skill name.

This build plays nearly identical to the previous “My first 60″ AR/Blade build, however instead of running with Sword, it uses Chaos. It does, however, branch OFF the AR/Blade “My first 60″, therefore it is intended to be a followup to that build. Once you complete the AR/Blade my first 60, you should start working to this build if you wish to run Chaos instead of Sword.
First, Be sure and start the fight with the rotation: 1x Anima Shot, followed by Anima Outbreak immediately so Outbreak Alert (reduced chance of glance) procs before you take any damage. Then you would build using Escalation, then close (as with the “My first 60″ AR/Blade build“, close with an alternation of Fire at Will and Anima Outbreak. The Chaos Closer for the build is Karma, which has a Frenzy effect.
The primary focus of the build is to make sure of Frenzy attacks to proc Perseverance (Heal), Shoot Em Up (adds an affliction from a Frenzy), and Leeching Frenzy (Gives Leech effect on Frenzy). The Affliction from Shoot Em Up causes the effects - Dark Potency & Fatal Flourish (Gives Penetrate from Affliction), thus increasing your penetration rate. Finally, penetrations cause Immortal Spirit (heal from penetrate) to give you even more sustainability.
Your primary dps will be from your AOE attacks. If you wish to replace either with a single target attack, you will lose the Frenzy effects, so I would be leery of making this change.
