Looking for assistance with Shield Defense/Battle Axe build


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping someone can help me with a build for SD/BA. This character is at 50 now and hopefully I won't have to start him over. My main struggle right now is stamina. He runs out in no time. Also his S/L resist is only at a base of 66%. Hoping to get that higher. Edited to ask, too, if anyone has a Mids layout I can use for this. Any help is appreciated!

Not knowing anything about your build, here are a few tips If you are having endurance problems :
3 slots into Health with Panacea, Miracle and Numina's endurance procs + 2 slots in Stamina with Performance Shifter proc +end mod


The Atlas Metallion accolade is very easy to get by running Moonfire TF and will give you and extra 5 endurance moving you up to 105 base endurance which makes all of your other end recovery things stronger since they work off a % base

The Ageless incarnate for the Destiny slot that you can access post 50 will usually take care of any endurance problems you have and it will eventually be perma once it's high enough level. Only drawback is that it's not usable when you exemplar down for low level content

Thank you for the advice, Seig! Much appreciated.

@Thunderknuckles Just got home from work and I threw together a little build for you. It's a very inexpensive build that doesn't cap resists but Defenses are capped and Hasten is perma. SD is such an easy set to cap defenses with that I could concentrate on getting perm hasten without resorting to any purple sets. This will get you through most of the content in the game no problem.

Hope you like it !

I very much appreciate that, Seig! As far as capped defenses go, is that up to 90% and is that essentially as effective as capped resists? I have a brute with 90% S/L resist that I was hoping to get close to, or better. If capped defenses are just as effective in damage mitigation I'll be thrilled. ha ha 🙂 Appreciate your help!

Here's a quick backport from a Shield Dark tanker I had lying around.  Took way too many attacks, but it should give you an idea to improve toughness.  SL resist cap with one stack of ATO, okay heals from Fitness.  Should probably drop some melee attacks to get a ranged one.

Here's a quick backport from a Shield Dark tanker I had lying around.  Took way too many attacks, but it should give you an idea to improve toughness.  SL resist cap with one stack of ATO, okay heals from Fitness.  Should probably drop some melee attacks to get a ranged one.

I very much appreciate that, Seig! As far as capped defenses go, is that up to 90% and is that essentially as effective as capped resists? I have a brute with 90% S/L resist that I was hoping to get close to, or better. If capped defenses are just as effective in damage mitigation I'll be thrilled. ha ha 🙂 Appreciate your help!

 

Defence goes up to 45% cap which makes it so you have 5% chance of getting hit because enemies have a base 50% chance to hit with any attack. Resists will go up to 90% for tankers and brutes reducing damage by that amount

Both are needed to be as tanky as possible but in my experience being def cap > resist cap. Both have their pros and cons but for me def edges out resist on which is better to stack. That being said, when you throw enough influence at it, it's easier to def cap a resist set than it is to resist cap a defence set.

 

Feel free to tweak that build if you want to use it, there's room for improvement since i made it on a budget. I made it with a focus on getting def cap + perma hasten, if you have different priorities and don't mind not having perma hasten you can certainly get the resists a lot higher
