Ill/Dark/Fire build help.

Recommended Posts

Helllo! Just doing some tweaking to my build to get a bit more oomph out of it and to even out my defenses. I'm fairly new to the whole build making thing, so let me know if there are things I should/shouldn't have done and what further adjustments you would suggest.

Let's see here.. I posted a Fire/Dark/Fire Controller build only a few days ago. It's still on the front page. You'll find some good inspiration there from my build. But I'll make a list here for you too!

1. Twilight Grasp is primarily a heal, even on an Illusion Controller, you should slot it with an Accurate Heal set.
2. You forgot to slot the Apocalypse proc.
3. Part way through this list I decided to just adjust your build a little bit.

Here's what I came up with!

edit: I tried to keep everything the same. The only big change was I took out Superior Invisibility and swapped it with Combat Jumping. This gave you more defense and can be toggled on at the same time as Hover. It's main function was another LoTG mule, which is why you took Superior Invisibility in the first place, only this mule can be used! I also changed some slotting around to even out defenses/give you better resists. Added some procs to make certain powers hit harder, give you better endurance management, etc. If I made a build from scratch, I could potentially get you some better numbers here, but at the cost of it no longer really being your build. So I opted to take what you wanted and ran with it.

  Here's my ill/dark/soul build that I've had a lot of fun with. Current build has perma PA, fad and soul absorption. It's also at ranged defense soft cap and s/l resist hard cap. Soul can be swapped for fire to get you the same outcome

I love this build - very well thought out. BUT If I could steal a moment of your time to tell you about something amazing called.....Time Manipulation.

Clearly a plot to promote "alt-a-holicism". Despicable.

Sorry to steal the attention, but are there any skippable skills from Ill/Dark?

   The main ones that come to mind are superior invisibility and group invisibility, as shadowfall and a stealth IO works the same and gives you better defenses. Flash, I never really found a use for it due to the long recharge and the fact that everything is usually dead without much worry.........and black hole, yeah.......I don't think I've ever found a use for black hole. With that being said I do usually add superior inv into my builds just to hold a LotG proc.
