A DP/Time is incredibly versatile.  Easy to softcap S/L/E and you’ve got a double melee PbAOE by endgame.  Now that mine is fully T4’d out I easily run S/L farms for fun and to farm Emps for my alts.  You won’t be holding aggro but you don’t need to given how fast everything dies….almost as fast as my purpose-built Rad/Fire brute fire farmer.

I'd love it if you could post your build.

Sure, but caveat....this is my current build, but an older toon.  As you'll see, I had Sorcery Pool in here, and still do.  Since I mostly just farm with this alt now, other than the odd incarnate trial, I've not really bothered with a full respec.


My build is based on an older build posted by Apparition some time ago, but Nemu came along and threw up an alternative build.  You can take a look at both and see which you prefer.  If I were doing it all over again, I'd take Nemu's approach since it's superior in just about all the defense categories.


For PvE and AE farming of S/L farms, this is a very effective, speedy and high recharge/high endurance build.  Damage is really good as well.


A few considerations once you go down the Incarnate trail:


1) Since I farm a bunch, I've got plenty of leftover EMP's and Threads so I have both Hybrid Assault Core and Hybrid Melee Core.  I generally run Assault in the farms, and Melee in PVE content.  The status protection helps a bunch when you jump into the spawn to unleash your AoE's, and between Hybrid and Rune, you are almost max +RES for alpha's.  I usually alternate between the two, however.  Overkill for both.


2) You can also go down just about any other Lore approach you want.  For farming, hard to beat the BP's untouchable rain-dropping pet.


3) I did some reslotting for DPS and recharge (and even have Burnout in here) and thus now only have S/L defense capped.  I have a secondary build on here that has me S/L/E and almost Melee softcapped to DEF.  Again, a bit overkill for PvE but you have lots of slotting options depending on your goals.


So here's mine:  S/L softcapped DEF, near max resists with Hybrid Melee, high resists with just RoP when its up, unlimited END and 190%+ Recharge.  Lawn mower for farming, PvE or pretty much anything else.

Also here's Nemu's alternative build....very different slotting strategy, but like all things Nemu, pretty robust build!  S/L/E/R softcapped DEF and very high +Recharge.  If you weren't taking the Sorcery pool (debatable after nerfs), this would be the one I'd choose for PVE content.  






And finally, highly suggest you peruse the original thread(s) for the builds that inspired this alt.
