Build Request: Pain/Psy Defender


Recommended Posts

  • 4 weeks later

I remade my Emp/Psi main as Pain/Psi to try and see if it's more useful end-game. Focus is on recharge and defence with soft capped S/L and almost 40% ranged def. Hasten isn't perma unless the chance to recharge procs (which it often will).


Attacks are mainly Scream & PSW for AoE and TK Blast & Will Dom for single target. I have a lot of heals, more than I need, but it amuses me to watch Brutes get over their head and have three heals to pull them out of the fire. Rarely do they have a clue why. Keybinds for team select and the single target buffs are pretty essential.


Painbringer is perma, as is World of Pain which adds some welcome Res to many builds that are def capped. Indeed, adding to the def totals above is a flat 40% res to all damage apart from S/L which is 63%. Chuck in Angushing Cry for a rather large debuff that (again) no one ever notices and you have a very solid toon. Pretty bad at soloing unless you solo defenders and controllers for fun.


I'm still not sure how this will play out over time. Currently 35 and doing well, adding value to teams, and being able to contribute more than my Empath did when a team is roflstomping the content (which is obviously more often these days)
