Ever feel like your
enough? You like your
form and you wanna be in it more often? Do you like topping the
damage AND healing
charts in M+/raid fights with lots of adds? If that's the case,
search no further
, you're in the right place. I'm
and I present you my
guide for patch 7.1.5. This build revolves around using
as your main damage spell and trying to get as much uptime on your
For the sake of this guide, I will mostly be discussing the
value of things, and disregarding the defensive/utility values (
Absorb shield, defensive talents instead of damage talents, etc.).
choices are somewhat flexible, besides some baseline
that define the build. The highlighted ones are the ones that I run 90% of the time, and those are in my opinion the

build, but in this setup it gets outshined by the 3rd option in this row.
is the talent you will be taking with this build, everything else doesn't work without this as it allows you to get those juicy
chains on big add packs.
is not a bad talent, but not the best in it's row for this build.
is a decent talent, but this build focuses around generating as many
Lesser Soul Fragments
as possible in order to reduce the cooldowns on our Eye Beam through the
Feast on the Souls

- as the name suggests, you take this when you know that there will be a lot of cleave, basically 3-4 adds constantly up. (will rarely be taken in M+, however some

Use this with a /cancelaura macro.

talent, mastering this will surely increase your overall DPS. I recommend taking it even if you're not experienced with it, as it shouldn't take you that long to get used to it.
Nope. This is a PVE guide.
can be taken if you feel like your group needs more
but an experienced Momentum user will still pull out more ST DPS.
Master of the Glaive
- I can see this being used in conjunction with the

philosophy due to the
although this allows you to have a sick opener combo with a very high damage spike and Metamorphosis uptime,
overall it gets outclassed by Unleashed Power
only viable option
, it defines the build and is the build-around talent.
Basically what you do is take your
build stat priority, and swap
on the priority list. The reason for this is that most of our damage comes from
, and we want to make it hit
as hard as possible
. And what does
do for us?
, and therefore our
is still a good stat for us, but it falls out of favor due to Mastery being so important here.

is irrelevant, you will most likely get enough Haste by using the Nighthold 4-set, and you can tweak it with enchants/gems.
If you want to completely focus your
on this build, and disregard the
build completely, aim for 3x
If you want to play
builds, consider taking 1x
General Playstyle tips & tricks
Due to not taking the
talent, your most of your

you will spam it

It is ok to use your

Also, a general
tip - aim for every Interrupt,
generates you fury when you successfully Interrupt a spell. Use it often, it's free DPS and you'll also be a better teammate overall.
Basic AOE Burst combo is
Fury of the Illidari
Single Target Rotation is just a continous circle of using your
Fury of the Illidari
on cooldown and generating/dumping Fury.
Netherwalk Cancelaura Macro (Make sure not to panic spam it otherwise you might cancel it too early):
Mouseover Interrupt Macro (Interrupt the mob that you're hovering with your mouse):
#showtooltip Consume Magic
/cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead]Consume Magic
There are no real necessary add-ons for this build, so I'll just list a few generally useful ones.
- provides detailed information about every aspect of the encounter, the group's
, Interrupts etc. Good alternatives are Recount and Details!
Best UI Add-on out there imho.
Deadly Boss Mods
If you're new to PVE, you need this
. It tracks boss timers, and also warns you about important mechanics.
- Overall extremely useful add-on.
Get used to it and you will prosper.
really cool Weak Aura
I can give you is the
Enemies In Range
WA. It tracks how many enemies are in a certain range (you set the exact number of yards). Useful for tracking if you have 9+ targets for your Eye Beam.
Raddon's Cascading Eyes
bread and butter
of the build. You can still play
without it, but it's just such a huge difference. This is a very important factor in the spectre of things that allow you to chain
together and get those 6m DPS spikes.
Anger of the Half Giants
is the 2nd best Legendary for you with this build, it heavily increases your Fury generation.
Loramus Thalipedes' Sacrifice
is a viable replacement for the Ring, it goes well with
Delusions of Grandeur
Mo'arg Bionic Stabilizers
Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish
all fall short when compared to those 3.
Items to look for
- Drops off the
world boss in
. As of right now, it's
for most classes, including
. The sheer amount of stats it gives you outvalues most on-use/proc trinkets.
- Overall a decent trinket for the build, gives a ton of
and procs a decent amount.
Nighthold T19 4-set
- Increases your Fury Generation and Chaos Strike critical chance.
Very good set, get it.
I know it's a lot to take in at once, try to incorporate one thing at a time into your gameplay. Eventually, you'll pick it all up and you will see just how much
's are capable of. This build is a nice gust of wind to relieve you from the
2-button Rotation as it actually requires some planing beforehand.
