Sorcerer Corruption Basics Guide

Corruption

The dark side of the force provides many benefits, including the ability to ward off death itself. By conjuring a series of arcane force abilities from out of harm’s way, the corruption sorcerer can sustain injured allies, allowing them to fight on with power of the dark side’s twisted gifts.

  • Role: Healer
  • Weapon: Single Lightsaber, though it is not used
  • Distance: Long Range
  • Mirror: Sage – Seer

Corruption for New Players

  •  Corruption is a healer style, which makes it harder to learn than a damage class for most new players.
  •  Most players recommend to level as a damage style, then switch to healer when you are ready for group content.
  •  All three healer styles are not too hard to start healing with, just select a player and heal with a green ability.
  • Of the three healers, I found the Sorcerer healer to be the easiest to keep track of without any additional tools.

How to play a Corruption Sorcerer

You can start playing Corruption at level 1. To start playing Corruption, you will need to first create a Sorcerer character, which can be played by Sith Warriors and Sith Inquisitors (or even the Jedi Knight and Jedi Consular if you unlock the dark-side Combat Styles.)

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Corruption from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

5 Ability Basic Priority

Not quite ready to learn all your abilities yet? Use this quick 5-ability guide for the Corruption Sorcerer until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  • Static Barrier, often known as your “bubble”, provides a great shield to your ally that absorbs a large amount of damage. You will need to refresh it when your ally takes enough damage that the shield runs out, or it will naturally run out in 30 seconds. If it runs out early, you will still have to wait 15 seconds to cast it on your ally again. You should focus on keeping your Static Barrier shield up on your tanks at all times, and then if you can, on any other of your allies who are taking damage.
  • Resurgence is going to be your most used ability – use it as often as it’s available, focusing on keeping it on your tanks first. It does a decent amount of healing over 15 seconds – but if you use Resurgence again before the original Resurgence’s 15 second timer is up, it will finish the original Resurgences heals in a burst of healing before it starts the second one’s timer, so you never have to worry about wasting it by refreshing it early. Resurgence also gives “Force Bending”, which makes your next healing ability stronger, which you will want to combine with your strongest heal.
  • Rally is a good, efficient, filler heal that replaces “Dark Infusion” at level 23 via a choice, making it heal 2 people at once. It also gives you “Dark Concentration”, which makes Dark Heal, your strongest ability, cast immediately.
  • Dark Heal is a bad heal that becomes your best heal when under the effects of “Dark Concentration” and “Force Bending”. Together with both buffs, it will be free, instant, 50% stronger, and almost always critical. The trick to doing this is 1. Cast Rally. 2. Cast Resurgence. You are now under the effects of “Dark Concentration” and “Force Bending” at the same time and your Dark Heal has become amazing! If Rally is ever cast AFTER resurgence, it will steal the force bending buff, so remember to get the order right! You can only do this three-part-combo once every ten seconds.
  • Innervate is a fairly decent “spot heal” (especially following a Static Barrier to protect) to quickly get someone stabilized if they unexpectedly drop low. It’s also useful when you are starting to run low on Force but have some Force Bending to spend, to help buff Consuming Darkness (check Extra Tips below!) In addition, the level 39 choice “Dark Resurgence” will spread your Resurgence HoT to 4 allies when you use Innervate!

Multiple Allies 

  • Use Roaming Mend to heal your target and a few lowest health allies in a short distance of each other! This can be good to help out with raid-wide damage but note that it takes time for the heal to activate and jump around. Combine it’s use with the “Force Bending” buff from Resurgence to make the healing happen instantly, but only do this if it can’t wait, as it technically doesn’t do MORE healing at all.
  • Revivification is an extremely powerful but also fairly slow Area Heal, as it requires the 8 targets to pass within it to pick up a Heal Over Time effect. It’s definitely required whenever EVERYONE is taking damage at once, but if you only need to heal 2 or 3 people, Roaming Mend and your single target stuff may be more efficient Force-wise. Revivification also gives you the “Dark Concentration” buff, so use it instead of Rally if your whole team needs healing!

Extra Tips

  • Use Consuming Darkness to replenish your Force back when it is sparkling. You will need to use Consuming Darkness regularly and proactively throughout the fight or you will simply run out of Force. Do NOT use it when it is not sparkling, or it will actually make your Force regenerate slower. Using Innervate causes Consuming Darkness to sparkle when it critically hits. If you combine Innervate with the “Force Bending” buff from Resurgence, you’re almost guaranteed to get a sparkling Consuming Darkness.
  •  Expunge becomes a pretty important ability for healers as some fights have extremely harmful but cleansable debuffs that go on the group, and it is the healer’s job to cleanse these. In Operations, your group leader can hopefully tell you what the icon of the debuff will be on your friends health bars, if it’s your first time looking for it.
  • Feeling Spicy? Your Polarity Shift and Recklessness are fantastic buffs you can activate during intense healing periods to increase your output. Polarity Shift will increase the speed of your heals, and Recklessness will increase the amount.
  • Reanimation is your special combat revive ability. As of the Legacy of the Sith Expansion, only true healers can revive in-combat, every 5 minutes. Usually you will save this for tanks, but if your leader says otherwise or more DPS is needed to finish the fight, target the dead player with this and they can accept a revive at your location!
  • How do you know if your Static Barrier is on your team mates, or if its 15 seconds has run out? The easiest way is to watch your team-mates debuffs. When they have an icon of a “blue man in the bubble”, Static Barrier is still on them and you don’t need to replace it. The second way is when you have any ally selected, your Static Barrier will be greyed out and unclickable on that ally until the 15 seconds is up.
  • How do you know if it’s time to use Dark Heal to its full advantage? You will have the Force Bending buff which looks like a swirling purple skull from Resurgence, and the Dark Concentration buff which looks like a hooded man from Rally or Revivification, which can only occur once every ten seconds, and will make Dark Heal sparkle.

Useful Abilities

These abilities may not be directly for attacking, but they are used heavily by skilled Sorcerers in combat to turn the tide of a fight.

  • Seethe - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Overload - Knockback - Pushes enemies back.Level 4
  • Unbreakable Will - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10

Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling.

  • Cloud Mind - Optional Detaunt Level 27 Option 2/3 - Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time.

You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.Level 68
  • Phase Walk - Optional Teleport Level 68 Option 2/3 - Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.Level 68

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Corruption Sorcerer with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

Of all the classes, Healers tend to have the most variation when it comes to their favorite ability tree choices. This is due to each fight being very different, and the healer's actual preferences. Some of the factors include whether or not your group has other healers and what types of healers, if you need mobility, if you yourself will be taking lots of damage, and how you actually like to heal. The suggestions below are mainly based on the Theorycrafter's Discord's Suggestions but they are by far not the only options you can use.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Corruption Sorcerer, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Corruption Sorcerer.

Level 23 Choice: Dark Infusion Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Dark Infusion to change at level 23. Your options are Fueled Corruption, Rally, and Haste.

Dark Infusion

Heals a friendly target.

Fueled Corruption

Dark Infusion applies Fueled Corruption, which heals the target over 12 seconds.

Dark Infusion applies Fueled Corruption, which heals the target over 12 seconds.

Rally

Heals up to two friendly targets. Replaces Dark Infusion.

Heals up to two friendly targets. Replaces Dark Infusion.

Haste

After casting Dark Infusion you are granted haste, making your next Dark Infusion instant. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

After casting Dark Infusion you are granted haste, making your next Dark Infusion instant. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: Fueled Corruption - All three choices here are pretty usable, but for a solo healer who needs to also do some damage, adding a 12 second heal over time will help you multitask.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Rally - All three choices here are pretty good. Rally healing two targets should be your default (the 2nd target should always be the lowest health person in range), but if only the tank is taking lots of damage, you can go with Fueled Corruption for better healing over a longer duration or Haste for big spikes of damage.

Operation Suggestion: Rally - All three choices here are pretty good. Rally healing two targets should be your default (the 2nd target should always be the lowest health person in range), but if only the tank is taking lots of damage, you can go with Fueled Corruption for better healing over a longer duration or Haste for big spikes of damage.

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 27 choice are Dark Speed, Cloud Mind, and Dark Power.

Dark Speed

Dark Heal increases the movement speed of the target by 50% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 12 seconds.

Dark Heal increases the movement speed of the target by 50% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 12 seconds.

Cloud Mind

Wipes your enemies thoughts, instantly lowering your threat by a moderate amount and increases damage reduction by 25% for 6 seconds.

Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time. This is most useful if you're getting attacked during group fights when your tank is supposed to be taking the damage, or when your companion is set to tank.

Dark Power

Dark Heal has a 50% chance to cause your Resurgence to tick twice.

Dark Heal has a 50% chance to cause your Resurgence to tick twice.

General Suggestion: Cloud Mind - Cloud Mind is a great defensive on top of your only Detaunt, so taking it by default is wise. Take Benevolent Haste for some extra speed otherwise.

Level 39 Choice: Innervate Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Innervate to change at level 39. Your options are Dark Resurgence, Polarizing, and Corrupted Bastion.

Innervate

Heals a friendly target and consumes 60 Force over the channel duration. In addition, Innervate channels and ticks 10% faster.

Dark Resurgence

Innervate spreads your Resurgence to up to 4 allies within 8 meters.

Innervate spreads your Resurgence to up to 4 allies within 8 meters.

Polarizing

Polarity Shift increases the healing done of Innervate by 3%.

Polarity Shift increases the healing done of Innervate by 3%.

Corrupted Bastion

Innervate builds stacks of Corrupted Bastion, each stack increases the healing done by Dark Heal, Rally, or Dark Infusion by 5% per stack. Max stacks 3.

Innervate builds stacks of Corrupted Bastion, each stack increases the healing done by Dark Heal, Rally, or Dark Infusion by 5% per stack. Max stacks 3.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Dark Resurgence - Spreading your Resurgence to the whole group is too good to pass up. Always take this for flashpoints.

Operation Suggestion: Dark Resurgence - Spreading your Resurgence to potentially half the group is too good to pass up. Always take this for operations.

Solo Suggestion: Polarizing - A solo healer will probably be hitting Polarity Shift on cooldown just for the DPS help, so taking Polarizing while alone makes a bunch of sense!

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 43 choice are Unhindered Resolve, Death's Embrace, and Unlimited Power.

Unhindered Resolve

Channeling Innervate grants a stack of Unhindered Resolve. Each stack grants 2% damage reduction per stack. Max of 3 stacks.

Channeling Innervate grants a stack of Unhindered Resolve. Each stack grants 2% damage reduction per stack. Max of 3 stacks.

Death's Embrace

If a friendly player has Resurgence applied to them and are killed during the duration of Resurgence, your next Reanimation, Rally, or Dark Infusion is instant. In addition, when taking direct damage the cooldown on Force Barrier is reduced by 3 seconds and the cooldown on Extrication is reduced by 2 seconds. This effect can occur once every 5 seconds.

In addition, when taking direct damage the cooldown on Force Barrier is reduced by 3 seconds and the cooldown on Extrication is reduced by 2 seconds. This effect can occur once every 5 seconds.

Unlimited Power

Increases mastery, endurance, and presence for you and your Operation group members within 40 meters by 10%. Lasts 10 seconds. Those affected by Unlimited Power become Drained and cannot regain Unlimited Power for 5 minutes.

Increases mastery, endurance, and presence for you and your Operation group members within 40 meters by 10%. Lasts 10 seconds. Those affected by Unlimited Power become Drained and cannot regain Unlimited Power for 5 minutes.

Solo Suggestion: Unlimited Power - This buff will be a great boost to you AND your companion (increases presence stat, which governs companion effectiveness) so definitely take this while solo.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Unlimited Power - Most DPS sages/sorcerers will be taking other choices on this tier for their own damage boosts, so it usually falls to the healers to remember to bring this. Keep it as your default and only switch to Unhindered Resolve for extra damage reduction if someone else is already bringing this.

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 51 choice are Lightning Barrier, Force Mobility, and Defiance.

Lightning Barrier

Your Static Barrier crackles with electricity, shocking attackers for energy damage when it absorbs direct damage to you. This effect does not affect Static Barriers placed on allies and cannot occur more than once each second.

Force Mobility

Thundering Blast, Innervate, and Force Leech can be activated while moving.

Thundering Blast, Innervate, and Force Leech can be activated while moving.

Defiance

Increases damage reduction by 3%.

Increases damage reduction by 3%.

General Suggestion: Force Mobility - Being able to use innervate while on the move can be a lifesaver while catching up to your target or while escaping from an Area attack. Take by default.

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 64 choice are Unnatural Vigor, Surging Speed, and Backlash.

Unnatural Vigor

Unnatural Preservation increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds. Additionally, reduces the cooldown of Unnatural Preservation by 5 seconds.

Unnatural Preservation increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds. Additionally, reduces the cooldown of Unnatural Preservation by 5 seconds.

Surging Speed

Reduces the cooldowns of Force Speed by 5 seconds and Force Barrier by 30 seconds. In addition, Force Speed lasts 0.5 seconds longer, Polarity Shift increases your movement speed by 100% while active, and the active cooldown of Force Speed is finished when Force Barrier ends.

Backlash

Static Barriers you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Static Barriers you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Surging Speed - A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Unnatural Vigor. Remember when picking Unnatural Vigor that you have to use Unnatural Preservation for it to work!

Operation Suggestion: Surging Speed - A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Unnatural Vigor. Remember when picking Unnatural Vigor that you have to use Unnatural Preservation for it to work!

Solo Suggestion: Backlash - Most enemies in solo content won't be immune to a blind, so Backlash can be a cool choice here. If they are immune, or you just don't need the crowd control, Surging Speed is a great speed boost.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 68 choice are Whirlwind, Phase Walk, and Volt Rush.

Whirlwind

Traps the target in a whirlwind for 8 seconds. Non-player, non-standard, and non-weak targets heal rapidly while trapped. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely.

Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use when your enemy is outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.

Phase Walk

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Volt Rush

Deals energy damage to your target and leaves you feeling Energized for up to 5 seconds. The Energized effect can stack three times, with each stack increasing Volt Rush damage by 30%. The ability has 3 charges and recharges every 10 seconds. Volt Rush deals 10% more damage, and if applicable healing.

Deals energy damage to your target and leaves you feeling Energized for up to 5 seconds. The Energized effect can stack three times, with each stack increasing Volt Rush damage by 30%. The ability has 3 charges and recharges every 10 seconds. Volt Rush deals 10% more damage, and if applicable healing.

Solo Suggestion: Whirlwind - Normally Phase Walk would be recommended as default here as great mobility, because Volt Rush doesn't have room in your rotation and Whirlwind breaks on damage in group content and more often than not your allies will cancel it anyway. But in solo content, Whirlwind can be very useful on multi-target fights to keep one target out of the way for a bit. Master Mode Chapters are a great place to lift extra targets away!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Phase Walk - Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Volt Rush in your rotation, and outside of the two turrets in Hammer Station, most random groups will pull and fight everything at once in flashpoints, so your Whirlwind would be cancelled anyway.

Operation Suggestion: Phase Walk - Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Volt Rush in your rotation, and Whirlwind can't be used on most Operation targets.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Sorcerer abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Corruption Sorcerer for the Level 73 choice are Emersion, Corrupted Flesh, and Conspiring Force.

Emersion

Force Speed grants Emersion, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for the duration.

Force Speed grants Emersion, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for the duration.

Corrupted Flesh

Reduces the damage taken by all periodic effects by 15%.

Conspiring Force

Targets affected by your Affliction are slowed by 30% for its duration.

Targets affected by your Affliction are slowed by 30% for its duration.

General Suggestion: Corrupted Flesh - Corrupted Flesh is a greatly beneficial survivability choice, with Emersion being a situationally useful slow-breaker.

Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!

Fueled CorruptionOptional Passive Level 23 Option 1/3

Dark Infusion applies Fueled Corruption, which heals the target over 12 seconds.

Dark Infusion applies Fueled Corruption, which heals the target over 12 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: All three choices here are pretty usable, but for a solo healer who needs to also do some damage, adding a 12 second heal over time will help you multitask.

LvL23
RallyOptional Heal 30m (long range) Level 23 Option 2/3

Heals up to two friendly targets. Replaces Dark Infusion.

Heals up to two friendly targets. Replaces Dark Infusion.

Flashpoint Suggestion: All three choices here are pretty good. Rally healing two targets should be your default (the 2nd target should always be the lowest health person in range), but if only the tank is taking lots of damage, you can go with Fueled Corruption for better healing over a longer duration or Haste for big spikes of damage.

LvL27
Cloud MindOptional Detaunt Level 27 Option 2/3

Wipes your enemies thoughts, instantly lowering your threat by a moderate amount and increases damage reduction by 25% for 6 seconds.

Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time. This is most useful if you're getting attacked during group fights when your tank is supposed to be taking the damage, or when your companion is set to tank.

General Suggestion: Cloud Mind is a great defensive on top of your only Detaunt, so taking it by default is wise. Take Benevolent Haste for some extra speed otherwise.

Innervate spreads your Resurgence to up to 4 allies within 8 meters.

Innervate spreads your Resurgence to up to 4 allies within 8 meters.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Spreading your Resurgence to the whole group is too good to pass up. Always take this for flashpoints.

LvL39
PolarizingOptional Passive Level 39 Option 2/3

Polarity Shift increases the healing done of Innervate by 3%.

Polarity Shift increases the healing done of Innervate by 3%.

Solo Suggestion: A solo healer will probably be hitting Polarity Shift on cooldown just for the DPS help, so taking Polarizing while alone makes a bunch of sense!

LvL39
Corrupted BastionOptional Passive Level 39 Option 3/3

Innervate builds stacks of Corrupted Bastion, each stack increases the healing done by Dark Heal, Rally, or Dark Infusion by 5% per stack. Max stacks 3.

Increases mastery, endurance, and presence for you and your Operation group members within 40 meters by 10%. Lasts 10 seconds. Those affected by Unlimited Power become Drained and cannot regain Unlimited Power for 5 minutes.

Solo Suggestion: This buff will be a great boost to you AND your companion (increases presence stat, which governs companion effectiveness) so definitely take this while solo.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Most DPS sages/sorcerers will be taking other choices on this tier for their own damage boosts, so it usually falls to the healers to remember to bring this. Keep it as your default and only switch to Unhindered Resolve for extra damage reduction if someone else is already bringing this.

Flashpoint Suggestion: A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Unnatural Vigor. Remember when picking Unnatural Vigor that you have to use Unnatural Preservation for it to work!

LvL64
BacklashOptional Passive Level 64 Option 3/3

Static Barriers you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Static Barriers you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Solo Suggestion: Most enemies in solo content won't be immune to a blind, so Backlash can be a cool choice here. If they are immune, or you just don't need the crowd control, Surging Speed is a great speed boost.

LvL68
WhirlwindOptional Crowd Control 30m (long range) Level 68 Option 1/3

Traps the target in a whirlwind for 8 seconds. Non-player, non-standard, and non-weak targets heal rapidly while trapped. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely.

Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use when your enemy is outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.

Solo Suggestion: Normally Phase Walk would be recommended as default here as great mobility, because Volt Rush doesn't have room in your rotation and Whirlwind breaks on damage in group content and more often than not your allies will cancel it anyway. But in solo content, Whirlwind can be very useful on multi-target fights to keep one target out of the way for a bit. Master Mode Chapters are a great place to lift extra targets away!

LvL68
Phase WalkOptional Teleport Level 68 Option 2/3

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Volt Rush in your rotation, and outside of the two turrets in Hammer Station, most random groups will pull and fight everything at once in flashpoints, so your Whirlwind would be cancelled anyway.

Operation Suggestion: Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Volt Rush in your rotation, and Whirlwind can't be used on most Operation targets.

LvL68
Volt RushOptional Attack 30m (long range) Level 68 Option 3/3

Deals energy damage to your target and leaves you feeling Energized for up to 5 seconds. The Energized effect can stack three times, with each stack increasing Volt Rush damage by 30%.

Targets affected by your Affliction are slowed by 30% for its duration.

In addition, spending a charge of Force Surge on Consuming Darkness grants Reverse Corruptions, increasing your Force regneration rate by 2 for up to 10 seconds if you are not Weary or removing a single stack of Weary otherwise. The Reverse Corruptions effect will be lost early if Consuming Darkness is activated without a charge of Force Surge.
