Dark Melee Touch of Fear


Recommended Posts

So.... Ain;t no doubt this was improved.


How/Why to cram it into a build.


I run Dark/Dark with Cloak of Fear constant.  Does the Fear stack and is it useful?


How much damage does the power really do?


How effective is the AoE?  Does the fear Aoe of just primary target?

I am currently running a redside story arc toon that is a Dark/Dark Brute,  Today I finished 25-29 content and leveled to 34 to do 30-34 content.  


I respec'd at 34 and added in Touch of fear.  Short on enhancer slots, of course, so it got 1 accuracy.  ToF has a high base accuracy to begin with.


This is a solid little power.  It thickens the tangle of Dark/Dark continuous screwing with its opponents.  I run all Dark Toggles all the time.  I find the dominator tactics very useful. What would probably kill me is slowed down just enough through various mechanics so that I can fire another Dark Regen and be back at 100%, no matter how questionable a strategy I chose for attacking a room.


Having a solid highly accurate fear attack is very nice. On certain mobs that I cannot kill on one hit (DM has one super hard hitting ST and it is not always up) I can get the mob to at least cower for a few secs while my to-hit debuffs and DoTs soften it up.  Now to just learn how big a boss that will work on reliably so as to use it at maximum effective.  Pretty sure thats going to be Fear Lt and smack Boss.  We will see.


Mids does not have an update fort i27 yet.  Not an emergency but when I finally 50 this project I will need a working plan.  My old Dark/Dark Incarnate I have shelved.  Will prob strip it for the purples and such once am done slow levelling this one.  


I can easily drop the self rez and pick up ToF.  But should I rethink slotting or leave ToF as a one slot....?


Oh, last thought, I fast levelled the original.  Now that I am stuck at 34 sucking wind on End those toggles, while useful, are painful to keep up lol.  Cannot wait to get to 50 and get this thing moving at warp speed again.
