Necro/Dark imput please!


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Looking for some feedback on a build I am tinkering with. She isnt 50 yet, but shes moving up there. I have played robots/time before, but I wanted to give Necro/Dark a try too. But I don't have a end build planned yet, so any imput/guidance would be appreciated!


The build - 



Checklist/goals - 

- All 4 defensive aura IOs

- Chance for build up on tactics

- Decent defense/ -to hit debuffs


Notes -


Not really sure which pet slotting would be best for necro/dark. Ideally I am focusing on debuffs like speed and -to hit with healing to make the undead pets decent enough for 4/8 endgame.


Incarnates -

Alpha - Musculature (For pet damage and improved debuffs)

Judgement - Ion 

Interface - Diamagnetic (more to hit and regen debuff)

Lore - Some sort of undead (if possible)

Destiny - Barrier (pet support)

Hybrid - Support Core (improved bonus for pets)


Thanks bunches in advance for anyones time looking over my build and any advice or guidance!  


P.S. - In case this is a "bad" build, and people need to know what my goals are, they are -

1. Durable/effective pets.

2. Strong debuffs and CC (fear/gaze/tarpatch) presence

3. I am hoping that combined this will let her be able to complete +4/8 endgame content.

The data chunk doesn't input into the current version of Mids' Reborn (version so I'm not sure what your build provides. Can you export the short-form build?  


This is the version I'm running (almost completely built) with the anticipated Incarnates. For the most part, they are to taste, but I think /Dark benefits from Clarion for the status protection more than Barrier, being more in the camp that "pets are [relatively] cheap." Having both crafted just makes the MM that much more durable and flexible. Hasten is ~3.5 off of perma, allowing for all the secondary debuffs to be used much more often. Hopefully, it provides some ideas for a direction you'd like to take. While this build uses Soul for theme, Mu is likely the better meta for energy resists and the superior AoE immobilize. Mace provides a nice S/L/E shield, but Power Boost's effect is mostly wasted. Ice has a similar S/L shield (but lacks energy protection), but the health boost is very helpful for BG mode soaking.   


P.S. The Overwhelming Force KD proc in a tier 1 pet is surprisingly the biggest survival tool for masterminds to come around in quite some time.
