Ice/Dark - Aggro Magnet


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have been testing this ice/dark build on the beta server. It's plenty tanky enough, killed the ITF ambush in the first mission, Banished Pantheon in Dark Astoria, Carnies, Archnos...

 

But I am sure there can be improvements. The point of the build is to hold as much aggro as possible across as much content as possible. I thought two taunting auras plus darkest night for pulling should be enough. Darkest Night is also useful to survival against nasty psi mobs.

Looks good and tough!

Personally I can't sleep at night when my En/Neg defense isn't capped. Up to you but unless you really like the Fury of the Gladiator bonuses, I'd swap those and the Touch of Fear sets for three each of Eradication and Cleaving Blow. That'll bring you up from 39% to 48% and keep you safe from sapping Sappers, Carnies, and other stuff. (But drops S/L defense from 52% to 49%)

So why not make it as a tank?

If I had pasted the right build, eng and neg would be softcapped.

 

It's fixed now. 😞
