This is a guide co-written by me, Choons, Garzy, and a bunch of other Amaterasu people. This guide is mainly here to tell you how to optimize your DPS, given that you already know how your skills and glyphs work. I don't go over details for dozens of pages about glyphs since there are already guide out about that, but more on skill priorities and little brawler nuances that aren't commonly known.

Could you explain why do you prefer energetic etch over keen? Ive read that some skills doesnt scale well with AS, and i wonder if 5% cdr is worth 36 cr or 20 power. Currently im not having any problem holding GF and im playing with 190 ping.

Jackhammer does not scale with AS, Piledriver does unless you use it immediately after Jackhammer. He mentions this in the guide. Maximizing Brawler damage while tanking is heavily dependent on Perfect Blocks. In order to do this, you want to Have your strong skills available to Perfect Block and be able to use other skills in between. AS and CDR both help towards this goal. There are also certain bosses where keeping GF would be very difficult if not for Energetic etchings. Mechanics / need to iframe cut into your uptime on skill usage, Energetics make up for this during the rest of the fight.

In addition, you're getting so many stats from Growing Fury and from just being a Brawler that CDR and AS becomes much more efficient.

Hi, I have a question.

First of all, very nice guide.
However, being told that I should be keeping 100% Growing Fury Uptime is a little frustrating sometimes. What am I supposed to do when the boss enters a bad position, and my team can't unleash dps at their full potential because of it, but if I move the boss, (particularly those that are less likely to follow the tank) I'll lose GF.
Also, for example, on bosses like Kelsiak and the Dragon in DS2 where they drop puddles of fire and often stand in them for a while, I'll lose GF because I'll just die if I try to keep fighting.

Was wondering if you could drop some tips my way. Thanks :D.

No one can keep Growing Fury up 100% of the time in all scenarios. You should be trying your best to keep it up, but if you can't, then you can't. Bosses will herp derp, and you have to change accordingly. Making sure the dps can do as much damage as possible is better than keeping GF up 100% of the time.
