Katana/WP Build


Recommended Posts

Below is a build I made for my katana/wp scrapper. I feel that this build is pretty reliable however the testing is only on paper so far. For the build I aimed to have good defenses and dps. I sacrificed a bit of defenses for the later and gave the character shadow meld for those oh crap situations. 


Some notable things

Defense is not capped 

536 dps

48hp/sec regen

Melee defense is beyond capped


Theory crafting notes

If shadow meld works like a defense instead of like personal forcefield from force mastery it will be a great oh crap button. If it does work like personal forcefield then it is still a good but less of a good oh crap button. I feel that since most of your incoming damage will be melee keeping divine avalanche's buff up at all times will keep your incoming damage low and the regen should offset most of the damage from outside that. 



Tear this apart in the comments, give constructive criticism or walk away with the build...it's up to you thank you for stopping by and reading.

I'm not at home to check out the build but keep in mind Divine Avalanche +def buff stack. So if the attack chain is pretty short, DA's buffs may be consistently doubled after the initial cycle of the chain.

I had no idea that it stacks but that's awesome because it will bring the melee defense to that of a shield tank doing +4x8 incarnates who try and have a minimum of 58% defense.

I’m interested in Willpower as a secondary myself. You mind copy and pasting your build out? Mids isn’t jiving with my Mac.

Not exactly sure how to do that but I can do this... have you tried opening mids in your folders then going to the data folder and deleting the .json file?
