Whats a good Dominator for a lazy player?

Recommended Posts

So.. I love controllers.  As such, ive never really played a dominator.  I attempted a few times, but always ended up missing my support sets.

 

Well im thinking I need to try again, but this time Id like to try and play a dominator that isnt quite so......"busy"

 

Basically I want to cut down on button bloat, and streamline him as much as possible.

 

Any of you experienced dominators have any suggestions?  I am leaning towards Plant or Ice or Electric, but im open to suggestions.   I saw one thread below that had an interesting build for Ice/Savage.. which was intriguing, but im not sure I want to play savage as my secondary.   I like a more ranged approach.

Sounds like you should go plant, as ice and electric have melee auras that are pretty central to the play style. Plant would be my knee jerk answer anyway, as between seeds of confusion and carrion creepers you really only have to finish off a few mobs.

I have a Earth/Fire that I really love! With earth you only really need Stalagmites, either gasses or earthquake and the AOE immob then you can just burn everything down from range. With fire epic you'd have Firebreath, Combustion and Fireball for major AOE damage and plenty of heavy hitting single target attacks as well.

Plant/Mind.


You can basically get by just using Seeds of Confusion, Mind Probe, Subudue, Psionic Lance, and Psychic Shockwave. Plus Drain Psyche to become immortal.

I'd give consideration to either Elec/Psi - it makes a great sapper and although you might be standing in melee nothing will have endurance to really attack much and you'll have a lot of ranged tools as well.

 

Alternatively:

Plant and Dark control work great as a primary sets that do well at range.

 

Secondaries to consider would include psi (although that does lean into melee with it's sustain and psi shockwave), otherwise Firey and thorns for more ranged friendly sets.
