Willpower/Dark Tank needs help with build


Recommended Posts

Keep in mind that Willpower set is pretty vulnerable to Cascading Defense Failure while tanking non-physical damage. For Tanks We would prefer resistance-based sets, like Dark Armor because of that reason. For scrappers/stalkers/sentinels, however we would stack Defense & prefer Defense sets.

To keep this game safe, We have to give it to the world. Here you can download your own Private Server and other files. No moneybags're gonna put this genie back in a bottle!

Arc ID #13097 - Archvillain Beatdown, try it out!

Arc ID #21066 - Archvillain Beatdown - Past Edition!

Make Energy Aura available for Tankers plz, Munitions Mastery (Epic) for Masterminds, Temporal Manipulation (attacks) for Dominators, buff somehow underperforming Lore pets (Robotic Drones, Demons, Seers).

Since you guys are pretty mutch experts in building in MIDS.

I have a WP scrapper which seems verry sauishy against energy but i cant seem to get the resist high enough. 

I hsve 2 builds in minds the first one is the one im using atm, The second one has better res etc. Dont know if my recharge and accuracy are good enough.

I would like to keep the concealment pool.

I've recently dusted off a Willpower/Dark Melee tank that is mostly following Solvernia's build as mentioned in https://forums.homecomingservers.com/topic/4532-willpowerdark-meleeenergy-tanker-build/ . The damage output is low in the build at first, but the defenses seem solid especially with siphon life being a combination attack and heal.


I'd tried this build in part to see what cross punch from the fighting pool was like when using the boosts from boxing and kick. I'm enjoying cross punch far more than shadow maul for a melee cone attack. I had a dark melee/fire brute back on live and just could not handle the slow animation speed on shadow maul but your mileage may vary. Cross punch is supposed to bring in a


You might want to try training and slotting cross punch earlier to help build up an attack chain of shadow punch, cross punch and siphon life.
