Personally I hate the “swap weapons to get X” in character skill trees. But it is a must for basically all Athenas, and Unrelenting really takes away the pain with enough skill points and Maelstrom.
You tend to pick up the habit, speaking from personal experience. And you should swap once every 6-8 seconds while in combat. Or just watch your HUD for when the Storming Weaving proc is about to run out.
I’ve got loads of experience and videos when it comes to Storm and Hybrid Athena. So if you want to ask for something, odds are I have a video… or at least something to say.
Just know I tend to be a bit min/max-y.
