Build review request - rad / ice / soul (Dark pokey-type icicles)


Recommended Posts

I borrowed quite a bit from a spines / ice / soul build and adapted some things. In the end, hopefully this build provides good damage and will survive most situations fairly well. 


Icy Bastion can be up about 30% of the time and it takes all resists that it affects* to 71.5% or higher (most are capped, only energy / neg energy sit at 71.5%). Shadow meld is close to being available about 1/2 the time and it takes all typed defenses to far above softcap, with the exception of psionic defenses, which sit at 43.1%.  The build has a knockdown IO in 2 different toggles (irradiate ground and icicles) to help a bit more with crowd control. 


* psionic resists are not boosted by icy bastion


It's tempting to swap in contaminated strike for proton sweep to improve single target DPA; AOE may already be in a decent place between atom smasher, icicles, and AOE against contaminated foes. 


Feedback is welcome!

Interesting build, I'd love to hear how it plays now and any improvements anyone has to offer. There's a similar build here using Leviathan over Soul Mastery which I'm currently trying. At 40 now, and looking for a Red Side guide to get the patron powers!
