Tha Dogg Pound feat. Stormzy (Beast/Storm/Mu)


Recommended Posts

"Smooth, like the motion of water!" - Snoop Dogg


Been mucking about with Beast/Storm since back on Live, but recently rebuilt one on Homecoming.  Finally finished IOing it out completely last night; even got the D-Sync without much fuss.


What it does:

1) Lock down entire groups.  Ravens will drop flyers for your pets to maul and with Gale and Freezing Rain you can flop entire mobs at will.  Freezing Rain or Gale make great alphas to screw up the spawns' initial return fire.  The reliable knockdown gives you considerable damage mitigation for both you and your pets.


2) Ranged and AoE are at softcap without Hurricane; this lets you use Hurricane strategically as needed but not be reliant on it.  You can easily prevent teamwipes or set up a bulwark for ranged teammates, but won't have to run it constantly and tick off the Tanker.


3) Pets are pretty tanky as well.  Most enemies are too busy falling to do much but die, yet you have all six pet IOs in Tornado for if they do take a hit.  You can top them up with O2 Boost, and all but the two smallest wolves have an autoheal.  Unless you're doing crazy stuff like +4 ITFs you shouldn't have to resummon constantly.


This honestly isn't a super expensive build to get done.  The most pricey IOs are probably the two MM ATOs, the Luck of the Gamblers, and then the Red Fortunes.   Playing the market let me get this done in about a week from level 1 to IO'd 50.


It's an easy driver yet you've enough debuffs and damage to throw that you never feel as if your just a sidekick to your pets.
