, but loses most of its sustained damage in favor of short damage spikes. Unfortunately, if enemies don't phase or die shortly after your burst, your damage drops off hard and you would be better playing Power Berserker.
Besides providing the group with strong unique damage buffs through the stats of
and
. Warrior can provide half of the necessary Might and Fury to the group by using
.
The Power Bladesworn is one of the classes that benefit a lot from higher agony resistance due to not being able to crit cap by buffs and traits alone. Furthermore, the build is able to use damage modifying sigils like

Rotation / Skill usage
Information
Golem rotations out of the raid builds are generally suboptimal in fractals due to Exposed and phases being much shorter compared to raids. The raid rotations are optimized for sustained DPS while in fractals a player needs the ability to adapt a rotation to the amount of time a group needs to finish a phase.\ For that reason, you can find a video with openers, that are efficient to use here.
