How to Use Razor

Manage Electro Sigils

Razor's Elemental Skill, Claw and Fang, generate Electro Sigils that will boost his Energy Recharge or recover energy depending on being pressed or held. This is important for maintaining uptime on Razor's Elemental Burst which drastically increases his overall DPS.

Elemental Burst Doesn't Persist

Lightning Fang summons Razor's inner wolf and drastically boosts his attack speed, Electro and Interruption RES and supplements his Physical Attacks with Electro DMG. While this provides a massive DPS increase, it will immediately end if you change characters and the Wolf Within will vanish.

Only Suited for Main DPS

Razor's Talents and Constellations are centered solely around improving his damage only and offer no benefits to him as a sub DPS or Support. If you decide to build Razor then he will only be effective as the party Main DPS.

Why not Rainslasher as an alt sword for Razor?

18 Anonymousabout 2 months

>>14 Yeah, she also gives pretty consistent shielding in my opinion, 12s, if you have her at C2, she shields VERY consistently if you also give her some energy recharge, so retracing bolide could work. The only problem, her shields are pretty weak, I'd rank her the worse shielder.
