War Mace/Fiery Aura - build needed


Recommended Posts

I'm levelling a WM/Fire Scrapper, and nearing the point where I need an actual build. Anyone have builds they would like to share? I don't really know what to go for, other than one observation: knockbacks and knockdowns take a big toll on my damage and survivability. /FA doesn't provide much help by itself, so something to address that would be needed.

FA on a Scrapper is not the best choice due to not have an agro aura. Mobs just wander off at low HP and Burn makes them flee. A Brute or a Tanker would work best.


You will want a few (between one and three, depending on comfort. I usually stick to one but have Evasive Maneuvers and high S/L defense) -KB IOs. They are cheap-ish at 1-2 mill a piece. One can go into your travel power, the other into a defense power, and the last on a resistance power.


I don't have a specific WM/FA Scrapper build for you, only a Tanker one, but you can take a look and then get a handle on the slotting used and try to mirror it though the Tanker will get better defensive numbers.

Thanks for sharing the build!


Indeed, it's not brilliant for soloing due to mobs running off. But that has been less of an issue in teams, where mobs can die pretty fast, can be under status effects, or converge around the actual tanker or brute. I wanted to play this on Scrapper just for pure, unmitigated damage, and it's been quite fun.
