Homecoming will be undergoing maintenance between 1400 and 1430 UTC. ×

Recommended Posts

I'll keep this short and sweet as no one really wants to wade through a wall of text...

I probably spend too much time in mids which has resulted in a lot of builds being created, specifically Peacebringer and Warshade builds. So I thought I'd start posting them here, hoping they could either be put to use in their current state or be helpful templates for people needing assistance with their own builds.

I will post a build every so often and give a quick run down on the build. If anyone is interested in a particular build after it's posted and have questions on that build, feel free to DM me.

First up is a build I posted in the Peacebringer channel on the Homecoming discord earlier today. It's a Human Form build, designed for all around tankiness.

and the build...

Features:
32.5+ def to positionals. (softcapped w/ 1 small purple inspiration)
54.8% psi resistance
Perma Lightform
165% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
Hasten is perma as long as you trigger FFB via Solar Flare once or twice during combat.
Aoe KB is converted to KD with the exception of Seekers.

Notable easy power substitutes:
- Can sub shining shield and quantum acceleration for tactics and vengeance.

This build is designed for end-game play primarily but can exemp down while retaining most of the builds strengths until 33. Not designed for sub-Lightform play.
I perfer more procs in my builds personally, but if someone is looking to build a Tanky as hell human only PB, It probably doesn't get much better than this.

Features:
32.5+ def to smashing/lethal dmg (softcapped w/ 1 small purple inspiration)
26.5% psi resistance
Perma Lightform

165% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
Hasten is perma as long as you trigger FFB (Force Feedback) via Solar Flare OR Nova Det once or twice during combat.
All AoE KB is converted to KD.
Vengeance taken early, used often. Great for exemping down, it will ensure you never have a team wipe again.


Human ST chain ideal for DPS (Radiant/Gleaming/Incan + Glinting for filler if req'd)
Nova used primarily for it's aoe attacks
Dwarf for tanking/healing (ST attacks are still usable)
FFB in both Solar Flare and Nova Det ensure high uptime of 100%+ Recharge buff that FFB provides. 
FFB also ensures while you're knocking everyone on their asses, it's speeding up the recharge of your heals. FFB has the added bonus of allowing you to soften/counter any recharge debuffs that may land on you.
This build can Tank well and no one will whine about Knockback since you don't do any!

Great burst aoe dmg chain opener: Inner Light to buff dmg and trigger Gaussian's build-up proc -> Seekers -> Dawn Strike. No scatter on this build as all knockback converted to knockdown.

Mule Powers: (Powers you don't use so you can keep them off your tray, they're just their for their slotted bonus)
- maneuvers
- tactics
- brawl (yes brawl is slotted for s/l def bonus)
- shining shield
- grant invis

http://www.cohplanner.com/mids/download.php?uc=1619&c=783&a=1566&f=HEX&dc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

32.5+ to typed def s/l/f/c/e/n instead of positionals (softcapped w/ 1 small purple inspiration)
Perma Eclipse

132.5% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
Hasten can be made perma easily with an aggressive playstyle. Gravitic Emanation procs FFB basically upon nearly every activation (even against Single Targets).Dark Det can also be cycled on cooldown to keep the 100% recharge bonus up fairly regularly. 
All AoE KB is converted to KD except Gravitic Emanation
Proc'd out Drain Essence (Doomdrain) and proc'd out Gravitic Emanation.
Has provoke for keeping aggro off Essences.
Burnout because if you haven't tried burnout on a shade, you really ought to. Eclipse just missed because someone nuked the mob? No it didn't, burnout. Wanna start this mish with 2 fluffies (up to 4 easily), burnout. You get it...
Better end management for a Human form build since we didn't need to dip in the fightning pool for Weave which also allowed us to take all AoE attacks available to a Human Form only build.

*Small note: The global recharge does look quite low at first glance, but it's actually more manageable than people realize when you leverage things like FFB regularly. I find the proc's uptime is at least 50% or more which will already pushes the recharge into perma hasten territory. We're also taking Agility alpha this time around for the defense bonus but the recharge bonus is also helping.

My current Tri-form shade build; Dwarf focused, shifting proc chain (G. Well, D. Mire, D.Smite, D.Drain)

Features:
32.5+ def to smashing/lethal dmg (softcapped w/ 1 small purple inspiration)
Perma Eclipse

147.5% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
Hasten is perma as long as you trigger FFB (Force Feedback) via Gravitic Emanation, Dwarf Smite OR Nova Det once or twice during combat (which is easily done)
All AoE KB is converted to KD except Gravitic Emanation which we'll use to stun and re position groups. (This is also proc'd out, hello cosmic shotgun)
Vengeance taken early, used often. Great for exemping down, it will ensure you never have a team wipe again.


ST Attacks in Dwarf are favored and proc'd out. Ideal attack chain would require shifting, attacks would include; (G. Well, D. Mire, D.Smite, D.Drain)
FFB in both Gravitic Emanation and Nova Det ensure high uptime of 100%+ Recharge buff that FFB provides. 
FFB in Dwarf Smite ensure high uptime even during extended fights versus hard targets (AV)

Mule Powers: (Powers you don't use so you can keep them off your tray, they're just their for their slotted bonus)
- maneuvers
- tactics
- gravity shield
- grant invis
- stealth

Really helpful builds and rundowns in here. This can be a great resource not only for players who are learning the AT, but also for players who have been playing it for a fair bit and could use some additional optimization that they might not even know about. You should consider changing the format into a build philosophy guide with examples.

What do you think would be better; seperate (new) threads with build philosophy and examples/how-to's or building upon the initial run down's in each post above w/ added examples and such? I always fear thread bloat as nothing turns me off more from reading a well put together post than walls upon walls of text so I tend to do the opposite of that, short and concise. Though, if I were a new player the kind of run downs listed above may seem like another language altogether.

Next build is an interesting one. It's a Triform Warshade Tank build, designed to be more self-sustaining with less reliance on stygian for extended fights.

Doom's Triform shade tank.mxd

 

Features:
45% def to smashing/lethal dmg (softcapped) in all forms.
Perma Eclipse

143.75% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
Hasten is perma as long as you trigger FFB (Force Feedback) via Gravitic Emanation, OR Nova Det once or twice during combat (which is easily done)
All AoE Knockback is converted to Knockdown as to not scatter enemies.
Vengeance taken early, used often. Great for exemping down, it will ensure you never have a team wipe again.


Achilles in Weaken Resolve, Annihilation in Gravitic Emanation and Fury of the Gladiator in Dwarf Mire allows you to also soften up mobs for teams to mow down. 
With Reactive core the -res threshold for this combo is 65.48% -res which is quite significant.
All 4 aoes (Dwarf Mire, Quasar, Nova Emanation and Nova Det all Knockdown (Knockdown procs added to Nova Det and Dwarf Mire) for added control.
Gravitic Emanation should be used on cooldown (about every 12-13 seconds due to FFB proccing at roughly 90% chance) to take minions and lieutenants out of the fight . Interesting side note, Annihilation chance for -res also carries roughly the same proc chance in this slotting configuration making this debuff nearly every target hit in the mob.


Mule Powers: (Powers you don't use so you can keep them off your tray, they're just their for their slotted bonus)
- maneuvers
- tactics
- gravimetric snare (though if you really need to immob an AV, you can)
- grant invis
- invisibility.
- shadow cloak
- brawl
- Essence drain

This build is my current Peacebringer build. It's a Triform flex build. 20% positionals in all forms. 32.5% to all positionals w/ defensive toggles up for hard target fights since our ST chain is all human.
Doom's Current Tri-form Peacebringer proc chain 20% positionals 32.5% human flex build.mxd

 

Features:
20% def to positional defense in all forms. 32.5% in human when defensive toggles on. I use this during AV fights since my ST chain is all human.
Perma Lightform*

140% global recharge (hasten's bonus included) 
*Hasten and Lightform are made perma utilizing the recharge bonus from Cross Punch (10% per enemy hit) and FFB proc in Solar Flare which is constantly up when we're cycling aoe's due to Solar Flares good proc rate.
Optimal ST attack chain Gleaming / Radiant / Crosspunch -> Repeat, fully proc'd for maximum ST damage. Achilles and FotG procs in the chain help push dps and soften up hard targets.


Inner Light takes L21 gaussian's set to maximize the BU proc chance by keeping the enhanced recharge value as low as possible while still benefiting from the positional set bonuses. This way this turns Inner light into essentially Build up + Aim for 5 seconds which really allows you to maximize your aoe burst. (ie. Inner Light-> Dawn Strike -> Solar Flare; with this combo most mobs will be dead at which point you can wipe up stranglers with Nova form Aoes)
