Fire Walk With Me
The reason here is simple. While Burned and Busted may help in some situations Fire Walk With Me has much more use. The only reason Burned and Busted will ever come in handy is if the whole enemy team is Oscar Mike.
I Hate Your Pretty Shields has such a short blind that by the time the attack animation ends they can see again (or are real close) so it has absolutely zero use. However, Dismissed! allows you to push them off cliffs, back into Shadowfire Pillars and even into a group of allies to enjoy the show as they rip them to pieces.
Oh That Reminds Me
Let’s Bounce isn’t the greatest since Nullify is amazing for bouncing back to your team for support. You NEVER want to bounce the way you’re running. Mind Bullets would be amazing but sadly it only effects the secondary attack. Best choice here is the shield recharge since Orendi has no natural health regen. Having your shields start to recharge imediently can be an amazing boost for Orendi.
Never choose the middle here. It makes the attack faster but it cuts the damage in half. Preamble of Pain has some use but after a bunch of testing I found Power Pillar (Now called Encore) better in both PvE and PvP.
I used to think Prognosticombo was superior but after a bunch of testing I found this to be much better. Sure Prognosticombo allows you to use her passive more often but after you finish your combo fully it will be recharged again so why not go for even more cooldown reduction on Shadowfire Pillar. One thing’s for sure. ALWAYS avoid the middle option here.
The choice here is quite clear. Your main damage is going to be Shadowfire Pillar so why not buff it more? And it’s not like you use Nullify for putting out a bunch of damage.
This one depends on your team comp (whether PvP or PvE). If you have an amazing healer who is doing their job quite well then feel free to choose Force of Will for the extra damage. However, if you lack a healer, are flying solo in story mode or your healer just sucks then be sure to pick Essence Theft for some heal power so you can stay in the fight longer and never forget, if t=you feel overwhelmed you can hit down on the arrowpad (at least for PS4, IDK about Xbox or what key for PC) to warp back to your spawn for a swift getaway.
The shield pierce may sound nice but it comes down to the fact you won’t be using Nullify for your main damage output. Considering this just choose the faster cooldown since doing so also means faster Pillars.
Never use the middle since you are gonna be playing her pretty close range anyways. Again, the shield pierce may sound nice but speaking from experience Orewndi pumps out enough damage to blast shields away insanely fast. Just go for faster Pillar cooldown so you can pump out more damage.
For PvE always choose Reign of Chaos so you can get more Pillars. This is due to the fact that the mutation here only helps in PvP. Speaking of, in PvP always choose Pillarstorm. This mutation is insanely overpowered. It literally spawns a Shadowfire Pillar under every enemy Battleborn near the attack!
