Looking for a good Katana/Dark Armor build


Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with a solid, reliable end game build for my Katana/DA brute, but everything I work up just seems... lacking. Any help from folks more experienced with both power sets would be appreciated!

Thanks.

I have an old build from back on live for my BS/Dark scrapper.  Pretty cheap and seemed to work fairly well back in the day - it might give you some ideas.

Calling @Wernerto aisle 5. @Wernerto aisle 5 please.

Haha, OK, this version of my build has done a solo no-temps no-inspirations enemies-buffed +4x8 ITF with no deaths. I think it did 280 DPS, but I'm not finding it right now.

After that, I sacrificed some survivability to get to 363 DPS with Divine Avalanche. Chain is Golden Dragonfly -> Gloom -> Soaring Dragon -> Divine Avalanche. This is my current  build. As I recall, the main sacrifices were being weaker to endurance debuffs and drains and to hit debuffs. The plan was to also pick up Ageless Radial, and switch between that and Barrier Core depending on the enemy. I did a little testing on beta that suggested that would do the trick for the enemies the live build had trouble with. But I never got Ageless on live, because I almost immediately rolled a Dark Armor/Martial Arts Tanker, and never looked back. Though now I'm leveling a Shield Defense/Martial Arts Tanker that seemed even better while testing on beta. Anyway, my current Katana/Dark build could probably do the ITF with the same conditions as the other build, though it would be riskier and might take a few tries, but I haven't tried. This is the one I'd build, well, clearly since I did. But if you want max and better proven survivability and are willing to sacrifice 80 DPS to get it, you could go with the first build. But neither are going to be AoE powerhouses, so depending on what you're after, neither build may suit you.

Haha, OK, this version of my build has done a solo no-temps no-inspirations enemies-buffed +4x8 ITF with no deaths. I think it did 280 DPS, but I'm not finding it right now.

 

 

After that, I sacrificed some survivability to get to 363 DPS with Divine Avalanche. Chain is Golden Dragonfly -> Gloom -> Soaring Dragon -> Divine Avalanche. This is my current  build. As I recall, the main sacrifices were being weaker to endurance debuffs and drains and to hit debuffs. The plan was to also pick up Ageless Radial, and switch between that and Barrier Core depending on the enemy. I did a little testing on beta that suggested that would do the trick for the enemies the live build had trouble with. But I never got Ageless on live, because I almost immediately rolled a Dark Armor/Martial Arts Tanker, and never looked back. Though now I'm leveling a Shield Defense/Martial Arts Tanker that seemed even better while testing on beta. Anyway, my current Katana/Dark build could probably do the ITF with the same conditions as the other build, though it would be riskier and might take a few tries, but I haven't tried. This is the one I'd build, well, clearly since I did. But if you want max and better proven survivability and are willing to sacrifice 80 DPS to get it, you could go with the first build. But neither are going to be AoE powerhouses, so depending on what you're after, neither build may suit you.

 

 


Thanks @Werner!
