Pain/Dark Defender


Recommended Posts

I'm not the best with builds. I also know the general wisdom is that Pain Domination is better utilized on Corruptors (and MM's) than Defenders. But there's a few things about Pain Dom on Defenders that I like: 


- Overall Better Buffing and Debuffing Values

- Strong Self Damage Buffs that also heal allies

- A nice resistance and Defense Debuff in Anguishing Cry

- Word of Pain's +Resistance to All (which includes Psi resistance)


All of that plus Defenders get access to their buffs much earlier than Corruptors or MM's do.  With that being said I took a stab at building a Pain Domination / Dark Blast Defender. I know it's not optimal and needs help, so I'm hoping to get some advice.
