Looking for some feedback on my Dark/cold/Stone build:




| Copy & Paste this data into Mids Reborn : Hero Designer to view the build |


46% S/L Def when using hover, only downside to Fissure but could be swapped out for Combat Jumping perhaps.


In theory should have decent ST between Dark Grasp, Infrigidate, and Seismic Smash, then the added dmg from the pets.


Fissure with the +rech proc should counter any rech shortfalls.


No room for Shadow Field unfortunately but with high recharge time its not worth it.


Earth's embrace is down to 90 sec rech and heals for 40% hp which should be helpful.


I have also looked at ice for the epic instead of stone for Ice Blast and Ice Storm, but overall i think Stone is likely better.

YMMV widely, but Ice Storm does indeed do a ton of damage. I just picked it up on my Fire/Storm and it melts spawns noticeably faster, and it's not even slotted yet. I think it's up every 36 sec or so, covers a good AOE and does 1.5 (an extra tick of cold damage if target is controlled ). At level 47: 115.6 damage * 1.5 (extra cold damage tick for controlled target) = 173.4 * 1.3 (At least one Freezing Rain) = 225.4 UNSLOTTED.

Slotted 173.4 * 1.95 (just to ballpark) = 338.13 * 1.3 (FR) = 439.6 call it 440. in 15 seconds up every 36 seconds in a targeted AOE. Adding any additional dmg boot will have major impact on numbers like that. 🙂

Have to go get him to 48 so I can try out the slotted version. 🙂
