Career Skill & Passive

 

Shield of Faith
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Career General Overview - 05B62117A
Saltzpyre imbues himself or an ally with a shield, rendering them immune to damage for 5 seconds. Upon expiring, the shield explodes, inflicting damage on nearby enemies.Press Career Skill key(default key: F) will put the shield on Victor. Holding Career Skill to target an ally and using the attack input to place it on them assuming they’re in range.
 
 
 
The explosion is able to stop normal elites all attacks, but cannot stagger Chaos Warrior overhead/Monster/Lord. It also applies a fire DoT inside its AoE. The fire DoT lasts 5 seconds, has a base tick rate of per 0.7 seconds.
Righteous Fury
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Career General Overview - 03BF78B2D
Saltzpyre gains Fury when enemies die nearby. At 100% Fury, he briefly enters Righteous Fury and his attacks Smite the enemy for 20% of weapon damage. Saltzpyre loses Fury while out of combat.Victor can only restore energy when enemies die within 6 units(similar to normal aura range). Need to store 100 energy to trigger Righteous Fury. After triggering it/after 5 sec no enemy dies nearby, you lose 6 energy per sec.
 
 
 
Horde units generate 2 energy, elites generate 6, specials generate 8, bosses generate 200.
 
 
 
On Recruit you generate 150% energy, Veteran generates 120%, Champion and Legend generate 100%, Cataclysm and above generate 70%.
 
 
 
Only works on melee attacks. Does not work with push or bombs.
 
 
 
The second attack deals 20% of the original hit, dealing increased damage if the original hit landed a headshot/critical attack. It also fully benefits from stagger bonus and all Level15 talents.
 
 
 
The second attack is able to apply a secondary stagger(same stagger power as light push, e.g rapier/dagger push) to enemies but does not generate temporary health from Level 5 talents nor generate career skill charges.

 
 
 

Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I)

LeveL 5 Row

 

Enternal Vigilance
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - FF6ADF833
Staggering enemies with a melee attack grants temporary health. Health gained based on stagger strength.Should be used with Hammer and Shield
Slayer of the Wicked
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - E147BD963
Damaging multiple enemies in one swing with a melee weapon grants temporary health. Max 5 enemies.Should be used on most of melee weapons.
Blessed Hands
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - 0DD996C52
Healing yourself with a First Aid Kit or a Healing Draught also heals your nearby allies for 20.0% of their maximum health. Clears any wounds.With the talent From Fury, Fortitude and The Comet’s Gift, this talent is fairly viable on Warrior Priest, as you have the ability to restore health consistently in other ways. However, the main role of Warrior Priest in the team is a tanky frontline, and if using this talent force you to abandon frontline due to low health, this talent should be avoided.

 

LeveL 10 Row

 

Unstoppable Force
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - 59201A5EC
Striking 3 enemies in a single attack halves the cost of pushing for 4 secondsConsistent crowd control tool during horde
 
 
 
Half push during horde can greatly increase any weapon’s crowd control ability.
 
 
 
Due to the talent mechanic, it is fairly hard for shield bash attacks to trigger this talent, as shield bash attacks are inherently three hitbox in one attack.
 
 
 
For weapons with good push attacks, this talent can also increase their DPS while this talent is active. E.g Hammer + 30% stamina regen on the trinket, can do push attack – light attack – light attack combo infinitely inside horde. Hammer and Shield can also do push attack – light attack combo infinitely to help you burst down elites mixing inside horde.
 
 
 
However, this talent has a low trigger rate or is even completely useless while fighting mass elites or Boss/Lord fight.
Rising Judgement
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - 6DA6D2B4A
Hits increase the power of the next charged attack by 8%. Max stacks 5.Consistent damage for specific loadout on all types of units
 
 
 
The most consistent talent in this row. However, unlike the talent description, it only increases your damage instead of power, which means your stagger and cleave do not receive a boost from this talent.
 
 
 
If you use Heavy Attack without any stacks, it will still receive 8% damage increase. For dual wield Heavy Attacks like Dual Hammers, one of the hammers will receive 8% damage increase and the other will receive 16%.
 
 
 
Should pair this talent with weapons that use Heavy Attacks in their combos.
Sigmar’s Executioner
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - CBD079DA0
Killing an elite enemy grants 5% critical strike chance for 12 seconds. Max stacks 3.Inconsistent strong damage boost
 
 
 
Grants up to 15% critical strike chance. With full stacks, it’s an amazing high DPS talent. However, Warrior Priest is a low burst damage pure melee career with low mobility. As a result, this talent has pretty low uptime in low difficulties and/or with some range focus/high DPS teammates.

 

LeveL 15 Row

 

Smiter
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - 06D5FE18C
The first enemy hit always counts as staggered. Deal 20% more damage to staggered enemies. Each hit against a staggered enemy adds another count of stagger. Bonus damage is increased to 40% against enemies afflicted by more than one stagger effect.Increases your single target DPS. Better for key target deletion. Should be picked most of the time.
Mainstay
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - 630B5E0A5
Deal 40% more damage to staggered enemies. Each hit against a staggered enemy adds another count of stagger. Bonus damage is increased to 60% against enemies afflicted by more than one stagger effect.Increases your horde clear DPS. However, Warrior Priest weaponry already provides him strong crowd control ability. Should be avoided most of the time.
Enhanced Power
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part I) - BE76CD188
Increases total Power Level by 7%. This is calculated before other buffs are applied.Does not benefit a melee based career as much as other talents. Should be avoided.

 
 
 

Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II)

LeveL 20 Row

 

Divine Excoriation
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - D3B5A9489
During Righteous Fury pushing sends out a holy shockwave around Victor staggering nearby enemy.Area crowd control for horde
 
 
 
Performing a push during Righteous Fury will send out a shockwave around Victor. Does not require Victor to land the direct push on a unit. The stagger level of the shock wave is not affected by your push strength.
 
 
 
It drastically increases your trash horde control ability during Righteous Fury, as the shockwave is 360°. However, it cannot stagger normal elites at all without extra stagger power investment, and due to the mechanic of Righteous Fury, you are most likely won’t be able to trigger it at the beginning of an event, which are scenarios that strong AoE stagger ability is most valuable for. In most games, this talent just further boosts your horde control.
Enpowered Smite
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 06F212D4D
Smite during Righteous Fury trigger after 1 second, gain increased stagger strength and now deal 40% of the attacks damageGood damage boost during horde
 
 
 
An additional 20% damage increase during Righteous Fury. Its stagger power also increases from light push level(rapier/dagger push) to medium push level(normal weapon push). Most likely you are still not going to stagger elites, but against Marauder and Gor it will perform better. And due to the mechanic of Righteous Fury, the damage boost part will most likely only trigger during horde fights. Overall an ok damage boost talent to increase your horde clear DPS.
From Fury, Fortitude
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 349530427
During Righteous Fury kills restore health to the party based on the health of the slain enemy.Strong sustainability for the whole team
 
 
 
During Righteous Fury, all units you kill will store the whole team Permanent Health, doesn’t matter the distance between Victor and his teammates and can be triggered with explosives. The amount of health you restore is equal to 50% of THP on kill that the slain unit can provide. And since Righteous Fury can be triggered consistently during horde fight, this talent can provide a noticeable amount of Permanent Health in each horde, as long as there aren’t many range horde clear careers in your team, since it requires Victor to land the killing blow to generate health for the whole team.

 

LeveL 25 Row

 

Prayer of Vengence
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 7B96A5B9F
Bless the party with 35% increased Critical Strike Damage.Moderate damage boost for the whole team
 
 
 
Same as 35% Crit Power. Due to the nature of critical damage calculation, for most careers/builds this talent increases way less than 35% damage when weapons crit, as Crit Power only increases the crit bonus damage, not the overall damage when crit. Unless the team is specifically building towards high crit chance and using weapons with high crit damage, this talent can only increase a very low amount of DPS.
Prayer of Might
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 05E440615
Bless the party with 25% increased Stagger Power.Moderate crowd control ability for the whole team
 
 
 
Due to the nature of stagger, the 25% increased Stagger Power can be completely useless or very helpful depending on if you can reach certain meaningful stagger breakpoints. Since interrupting enemies certain movement is a yes or no situation, unlike damage dealt where even unable to reach breakpoints they still increase DPS. For a randomly formed team, it is very rare to reach some stagger breakpoints with this talent. Only use this talent if you know and want to reach specific stagger breakpoints for yourself.
Prayer of Hardiness
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 7EFE88CF6
Bless the party with 15% increased Max Health.Consistent toughness for the whole team
 
 
 
Basically 15% more room for error for the whole team. For 150 max HP careers, this talent also allows them to survive a Cataclysm elites overhead attack when they are full health, which can come in clutch in a patrol fight. Not flashy, but an extremely consistent talent for all types of team composition.

 

LeveL 30 Row

 

Unyielding Blessing
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - EFB5FF2B6
Increases the duration of Shield of Faith to 8 seconds and allow the blessed target to trample lesser foes.Enable more aggressive plays
 
 
 
While under the effect of Shield of Faith, the blessed target basically gets an aura that constantly sends out low-level stagger shockwaves that can only stagger trash mobs. It also has an unlisted effect that makes the blessed target immune to range attack knockback, so they can approach gunrat/firerat safely.
United in Prayer
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - 194CB7D27
Shield of Faith always affects Victor as well.Raise career skill usage floor and less micro
 
 
 
While using this talent, Shield of Faith will still affect your nearest eligible party member if you do not manually choose the main target/main target is Victor. It also doubles the total duration of Shield of Faith, creating two explosions when the shields expired, providing a bit more stagger and damage.
 
 
 
Since now Shield of Faith can affect two players, the chance of someone getting good use of the invincibility is increased. You can also just cast Shield of Faith on yourself in a pinch and not worry about its efficiency too much.
The Comet’s Gift
 
 
 
Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Talent Mechanic & General Usage (Part II) - BCC67380D
Shield of Faith revives and heals an amount equal to all Damage suffered last 3 seconds.Raise career skill usage ceiling and more utility
 
 
 
Shield of Faith will heals the Temporary Health lost as Temporary Health and Permanent Health lost as Permanent health in the last 3 seconds.
 
 
 
Besides providing invincibility for defensive or offensive play, Shield of Faith can now act as a long-range revive or strong healing. Especially if you or one of your teammates suffered a high amount of burst damage(e.g elites overhead, close range gunrat burst, monk/savage chain attack), a Shield of Faith can heal them back immediately, though it requires you to pay close attention to your team’s health condition all the time.
 
 
 
Keep in mind even though this talent provides so much great play potential to your career skill, do not save it too aggressively. A skill that’s not used at all is a useless skill.

 
 
 

New Weapons Overview – Holy Great Hammer

Warrior Priest of Sigmar DLC Guide - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - New Weapons Overview - Holy Great Hammer - 81B756ACB
 
 
Career Accessibility
 
Zealot, Warrior Priest
 
Basic Stats
 
Stamina:
 
6 stamina/3 shields
 
Dodge:
 
100% dodge distance, 2 dodge count
 
Block/Push ability:
 
Same as normal weapons.
 
Crit chance:
 
Light Attack 3, Heavy Attack 1 have 10% extra crit chance.
 
Mass modifier:
 
Light Attack 3 and all Heavy Attacks have Tank.
 
Additional notes:
 
Light Attack 2/Light Attack 3/all Heavy Attacks do not get stopped by cleave resistant units(e.g Armoured units).
 
Has a single target special attack, sharing the damage profile with push attack.
 
 
Holy Great Hammer is a well-rounded two-handed weapon. Unlike Kruber/Bardin Great Hammer, Holy Great Hammer has not just amazing horde control but also horde clear speed. Its single target combo also comes out quicker and with very little movement slow effect during the combo. It also inherited other characteristics of regular Great Hammer, has amazing damage against armoured enemies, especially Super Armour. Though it still suffers a bit from two-handed weapon dodge capability. And its move set is not as straightforward as a regular Great hammer, requires a bit of combo practice to be used effectively.
 
 
Pros: Good cleave. Good crowd control. Good single target armour damage.
 
Cons: Low dodge(though same as other two-handed weapon). Monster DPS is fairly low.
 
 
Recommended Weapon Combo:
 
Special attack:
 
Great Hammer special attack(default key: Mouse 5) is a quick single target attack, sharing the damage profile with its push attack. Use it to reset your attack combo back to the first light attack or first heavy attack.
 
 

 
 
Against horde:
 
When fighting horde, use combo heavy attack – heavy attack – light attack.
 
 

 
 
Against elite:
 
When fighting elites, use combo light attack – light attack – special attack.
 
 

 
 
Against monster:
 
When fighting monster, use combo light attack – light attack – special attack.
 
 
 

New Weapons Overview – Flail and Shield

Basic Stats
 
Stamina:
 
8 stamina/4 shields
 
Dodge:
 
115% dodge distance, 3 dodge count
 
Block/Push ability:
 
Same as shield weapons.
 
Crit chance:
 
No extra crit chance.
 
Mass modifier:
 
Light Attack 1, Light Attack 2, Push Attack and all Heavy Attacks have Tank.
 
Additional notes:
 
Light Attack 4/Light Attack 5/all Heavy Attacks do not get stopped by cleave resistant units(e.g Armoured units) and damage through shield.
 
While charging Heavy Attacks or holding left click after full charge Heavy Attacks can block incoming attacks like normal block.
 
 
Flail and Shield is closer to the regular Flail than regular shields. All its attacks beside the shield bash have the same damage profile as its regular Flail counterpart. And similar to Bretonian Longsword, while charging or holding left click after full charge Heavy Attacks, you can block incoming attacks and release your Heavy Attack at any time. It even has higher single target DPS than Flail thanks to Light Attack 1 and 2 being the overhead attack. The only downside compared to Flail is the loss of 1 dodge count, which is very minimal considering they still have the same dodge distance. On the other hand, the similarity between Flail and Shield and regular shields are less presented. While still having shield strong block and shield strong push, it doesn’t have quick access to shield bash attack, only has a weaker version inside its light attack chain. It also has one less stamina shield compared to regular shields, down from 5 to 4. As a result, Flail and Shield perform better with THP on Cleave talent rather than on Stagger and should be used to utilize the Flail part more. Overall a good crowd control weapon with decent damage and strong defense.
 
 
Pros: High dodge among shields. Good single target damage. High crowd control. Good horde clear. Damage through shields.
 
Cons: Monster DPS and DPS cap are fairly low. Don’t have access to shield bash quickly.
 
 
Recommended Weapon Combo:
 
Against horde:
 
When fighting horde, use chain heavy attack.
 
 

 
 
When fighting horde and need quick crowd control, use combo push attack-light attack-light attack.
 
 

 
 
Against elite:
 
When fighting single elite, use combo light attack – light attack – block cancel.
 
 

 
 
When fighting multiple elites, use chain heavy attacks.
 
 
Against monster:
 
When fighting monster, use combo light attack – light attack – block cancel.

Mass modifier:
 
All Light Attacks and Push Attack have Tank.
 
Additional notes:
 

    Charging Mechanic

  • Both Heavy Attacks have two levels of charge. You can charge these attacks by either holding mouse left button for a short period of time like normal weapons, or pressing special attack(default key: Mouse 5).
  • While pressing special attack(default key: Mouse 5), you are slowed down by 10%.
  • Heavy Attack/Special Attack charge speed can be increased by Attack Speed.
  • After the Heavy Attacks are charged to 2nd level, the pattern on the book will be fully lighted.
  • Unlike other weapons, you don’t need to fully charge the Heavy Attacks to 2nd level charge in one go.
  • Switching weapon/item does not lose charging progress. Two different Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome have separate charging progress.
    Heavy Attacks Properties

  • Both 1st level Heavy Attacks are single target attack.
  • After fully charged, the heavy attack 1 will get a bit more damage and a lot more stagger, also perform a lunge. During the lunge, you do not have dodge state and apply a very weak stagger(light push level) to the enemies near you. Right click during lunge can cancel it.
  • After fully charged, the heavy attack 2 will release an AoE explosion near the main target. The explosion also applies to the main target, does not provide THP or career skill charge, does not apply DoT.

 
Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome is an interesting weapon with a lot of unique mechanics related to its two Heavy Attacks.
 
The fully charged Heavy Attack 1(heavy stab) is mostly served as a move tech and gap closing tool. It applies a weak stagger(light push level) to enemies on your charging path and does not provide dodge state during lunging. So it’s not recommended to be used during horde fight/high threat combat situation or even trying to catch up hookrat/assassin/gunrat/firerat that are targeting you, as they will most likely disable you or knock you back or deal high damage to you during the lunge. Though you can right-click to cancel the lunge. The stagger and damage of the direct hit does increase when fully charged, able to stagger elites running attack and Storm Vermin overhead without investment, but it is not worth the charging time for DPS purposes.
 
The fully charged Heavy Attack 2(heavy slam) is the most useful offensive tool for Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome in most situations. It’s similar to Sienna Flaming Flail heavy slam attack or a higher damage shield bash, apply stagger and deal damage to a group of enemies while one enemy will take higher damage/stagger. However, compare to Flaming Flail/shield bash, the Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome does not have a very high stagger power. It is enough to stagger horde and elites running attacks, but won’t be able to cancel elites overhead attacks. And in order to get a fully charged heavy slam, you need to light attack/push attack once, and then full charge you heavy, which is fairly slow in a real combat scenario and can leave the player vulnerable.
 
In order to release a fully charged heavy attack, you can charge it by holding left click or special attack. During combat(mostly Heavy Attack 2), holding left click is better as it takes less time in total since you already have gone through part of the charge animation already. So in order to release a fully charged Heavy Attack 2, should use push attack/light attack – 2nd level heavy attack as the combo. During pacing, preemptively charging your heavy with the special attack is better, as it slows you down less and allows you to get a fully charged heavy version quicker on the next enemy. Also, use special attack – 2nd level heavy attack allows you to move around in a more efficient way.
 
Overall Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome is a utility weapon that has a lot of unique mechanics with ok damage output ability. Should be paired with another all-rounded weapon that helps you to perform better in tight situations.
 
 
Pros: High dodge. Unique moveset. Good move tech.
 
Cons: Heavy Attacks require a long charge time to be effective and leave players vulnerable.
 
 
Recommended Weapon Combo:
 
Special attack:
 
Skull-Splitter & Blessed Tome special attack(default key: Mouse 5) is used to charge its Heavy Attacks. After fully charging the Heavy Attacks, the pattern on the book will be fully lighted. Then you can choose when to perform your fully-charged Heavy Attack.
 
 

 
 
Against horde:
 
When fighting horde, use combo push attack attack – 2nd level heavy attack.
 
 

 
 
Against elite:
 
When fighting single unarmoured elite, use chain light attack.
 
 

 
 
When fighting single armoured elite, use combo light attack – 1st level heavy attack.
 
 

 
 
When fighting multiple elites, use combo light attack – 2nd level heavy attack.
 
 

 
 
Against monster:
 
When fighting unarmoured monster, use chain light attack.
 
 
When fighting single armoured monster use combo light attack – 1st level heavy attack.

Mass modifier:

Additional notes:
 
This weapon is an exact copy of Kruber Mace/Bardin Hammer.
 
 
A one-handed weapon, focus on defense, mobility and crowd control. Its light sweep attacks have great stagger power, can interrupt Storm Vermin/Mauler/Bestigor overhead by default, and generate a huge amount of THP against horde. Its high stamina count plus good move speed while blocking allow you to push attack shove through density or block while retreating easily. With level 10 talent Unstoppable Force, its horde clear combo push attack – light attack – light attack can also be performed infinitely as long as there are 3 units for you to hit through. The only downside is that this weapon’s overall damage potential is not as good as other options.
 
 
Pros: High mobility and defense. Good dodge. Good crowd control. Ok single target armour damage.
 
Cons: Horde DPS, Monster DPS and DPS cap are fairly low.
 
 
Recommended Weapon Combo:
 
Against horde:
 
When fighting horde, use combo light attack – light attack – block cancel. Mixing some push/push attacks can increase crowd control.
 
 

 
 
Against elite:
 
When fighting unarmoured elites, use heavy attack, then chain heavy attack – light attack.
 
 

 
 
When fighting armoured elites, use chain heavy attacks.
 
 

 
 
Against monster:
 
When fighting unarmoured monster, use heavy attack, then chain heavy attack – light attack.
 
 
When fighting armoured monster, use chain heavy attacks.

An all-rounded dual wield weapon with no obvious downside. It has amazing horde clear speed and crowd control ability, farming THP extremely fast. Paired Skull-Splitters also have access to good and fast single target attacks, high stamina/good dodge and easy move tech. The only downside that barely counts is its killing speed against mass elites, but even then you can utilize your high moveability and high stamina count to turn the fight into your favour.
 
 
Pros: High mobility and defense. Good dodge. High crowd control and horde DPS. Good single target damage.
 
Cons: Single target DPS cap is fairly low.

Additional notes:
 
This weapon is an exact copy of Kruber Mace and Shield/Bardin Hammer and Shield.
 
 
A standard shield with a simple single target combo. The easy access to shield bash attack allows Hammer and Shield to crowd control efficiently. And due to the high stagger and infinite cleave of bash attack, Skull-Splitter & Shield synergize greatly with THP on Stagger, providing the most efficient THP farming method in the whole game. But just like other standard shields, its DPS, in general, is not amazing against all types of units, and has below average dodge ability. Though compare to some other shields, Hammer and Shield still have some mobility and short-term single target burst thanks to the push attack – light attack combo.
 
 
Pros: Ok mobility among shields. Good crowd control. Ok short term single target DPS.
 
Cons: Horde DPS and long term single target DPS are fairly low.
 
 
Recommended Weapon Combo:
 
Chain bash:
 
Chain bash can stagger all types of unit (except monster). A great way to stabilize your position/stagger multiple elites. It can also farm temporary HP with stagger very efficiently.
 
Use the combo push – heavy attack to chain bash.
 
 

 
 
Against horde:
 
When fighting horde, use light attack, then chain light attack – heavy attack. Mixing some push/shield bash can increase crowd control.
 
 

 
 
Against elite:
 
When fighting eltes, use combo push attack – light attack.
 
 

 
 
Against monster:
 
When fighting monster, use combo push attack – light attack.
