I decided to start a new thread for this build, as it has changed and evolved a great deal from the original post of the first thread.
I have broken away from red tree quite a bit, eschewing capstone of red for a few points into infusion to get roughly the same effect.
Pulling points out of capstone and lifeleech allows you to get capstone blue tree, and a great deal more damage.
There are no points in green tree, as i found the passive survivability eclipsed by the power of Avatar, and the active survivability it brings to the table.
The big changes to the build are as follows:
No passive damage reduction after skill usage (I found this was too sporadic anyway to depend on as it would not refresh with skill usage)
No damage bonus from personal space (its made up for in blue tree)
Less lifeleech. (from 20% to 8% or a 12% loss)
Less shock damage (from 18% BONUS to 16% CONVERTED)
Less max health (about 1k health on my build)
No “mindfulness” (slightly more time before shield recharges and no movespeed buff)
Links do waaaaaaay more damage (from 67.% or so to 112.5% pre bonus from laid bare)
Phasegrasp almost always up (5 second cooldown to refresh avatar, and avatar lets you grasp twice per cooldown, so grasping every 8-13 seconds roughly)
Way more gun damage. (20% passive + 20% MORE for 8 seconds after skill use)
Critical Hit damage bonus of 27% after a grasp for 8 seconds.
In short, more active, but less passive survability while having more damage. This is a slightly more “glass cannon” build, but with phasegrasp it does not feel like much of a glass anything.
That being said lets post the pics of trees.
No class mod on for ease of point placement.
Some notes on terror/gear.
I’m running a transformer with +terror every 5 over 18 seconds.
A Roisen’s Thorn with +cryo while terrified.
A Stormfront with +damage/fire rate while terrified.
This allows my Roisen’s Thorn to be 4 elements permanently, while doing way more damage, and firing way faster.
Is it required for the build? No.
Do I HIGHLY recommend it? Yes.
Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Please feel free to drop a coment or like. Last time I posted a build the community was a great resource for helping to fine tune it. I’d love to see the same this time.
P.s. Special shoutout and thank you to StalwartStu for all the theorycrafting help/time spent.
