Dark/Dark/Soul - A Repeat Offender

Dread Tattoo

Recommended Posts

Good evening Scrappers!


I've been both intrigued and dumbfounded  by the Dark Powersets.

I like what I think I've seen but have almost no idea on how to construct them. Tried to do it on my own and become so frustrated that I threw up my hands and made a Mastermind instead!

But now ... oh yes now, I have an idea.




I think the Dark/Dark/Soul powersets fit well with my vampire themed idea.

Annnnnd I'm back to square one ... 

Opened up Mids and started banging around in there and all I could hear in my head was a man's voice with a heavy Transylvanian accent whispering "Walk away, you know not what you do here."

The voice is right, I dunno what I'm doin' here!


So I come to you, hat in hand Scrapper community! Please point me in the right direction!

What's necessary? What can I skip? Maybe drop a functional build in here along the way.

The only thing I really want is Dark Blast, Soul Storm and the ability to fly. Knowing full well that I'll spend almost all the time on the ground ...


I thank you all tremendously for any help you can provide!

This could be a start. Some powers are there for theme purposes, such as Touch of Fear. If you prefer Moonbeam instead of Dark Blast, you can slot it as it is or use an Extreme Measures set to increase your Melee and S/L def or a Sting of the Manticore to improve slightly the original 6.25% rchg from the Decimation set. I would usually slot Stamina with just 3xendmod but I was told in another thread that this slotting plus the Panacea in Health will grant better recovery so here it is. Despite the ideal DM chain being MG+Smite+SL+Smite, I personally like to use Dark Blast since it is pure negative dmg which is one of the less resisted in game but that's me, if you want the ideal chain, you'll have to rework your rchg and prolly add Hasten (which I never do in DA chars merely for concept reasons).

Being chased by a wasp is the most complete sport practice!
