Staff/Dark Armor advice


Recommended Posts

So I was thinking Staff would compliment Dark Armor with the Body of Soul endurance help but I don't see any builds using these two sets. I'm familiar with DA having used it in the past several times but this is my first Staff character. Looking for advice on powers to skip, slotting advice, etc.  I'm piecing together a build on Mids now using some info from all the DM/DA builds I can find and the few Staff/Elec builds. Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance

I used to have one back in live but can't honestly remember if it was good combo or not. The build for me is pretty straightforward anyway, aiming for the usual S/L def cap and using as many procs as possible to maximize dmg. This is probably how I'd build one nowadays. Mind you, I never use Hasten on DA chars for concept reasons:
