    It looks okay overall for Infernal dps. As long as you have enough energy for your dps rotation using Defile (I may take Ego Mastery here, though). I'd prob get a diff self-res than Rebirth, to avoid the self-dmg. Last power is really just up to you- if you feel you need more healing/defenses, or more dps tools.

    Thank you for your help. If I take Ego Mastery does that mean I should use Guardicator as well?

    Depends on your rotation and/or energy levels. If tapping the blast for Preemptive, then AvMastery isn't of much use since you aren't charging the blast anyways. AvMastery w/ Preemptive can be okay if alternating between the two charged attacks to save energy, though that rotation is still lower dps innately and I wouldn't expect the Mastery to proc too often (due to the low frequency of hits and crit rate not being as high as in Dex setups). Defile spam is best w/o weaving in the blast (and I'd prob take Guardicator for that), but the energy reqs for that are quite higher.

    Can you post a DPS build that would just basically spam Defile?

    I assume you're replying to me?
    Since Defile can't guarantee poison w/ each use, I'd prob use Conc or Chilled Form with it. Supernatural Power can also still work with Defile spam, though you still need relatively strong End and Rec to make using it relatively smooth. Mephitic can also work, since it has a 6 sec duration- assuming you use the Wisp on cd to keep it rolling. An example of that:

    If you're gear is good enough (or you get buffs like AoPM or AoAC) you could maybe get away w/ swapping Rec SS to Dex SS for the minor crit boost. Another option to consider is using Concentration + Int instead (INT/End/Rec_Dex w/ Preparation in Int PSS). Can also greatly alleviate energy concerns if you're willing to also use CoAP in Sorcery. Ofc, you don't have to use NW as the passive either- its just more ideal dps when using attacks w/ long charges.

    Another setup that could work for Defile spam is using Sorcery's Conjuring as the EU and Conc + Int stacking, since the the Wisp's Debilitating Poison can proc Conjuring innately. Once again the Wisp is important not just for debuffing but also for the EU. I can get pretty smooth energy for that setup in the PH w/ at least ~400 Int and some minor End (for the higher energy reserves and to lessen energy capping).
