Dark Melee / Dark Armor endurance problems

Recommended Posts

I have heard that dark armor has endurance issues, but I still wanted to try a dark melee / dark armor brute.  I am not sure if I can swing one fist before running out of endurance...half joking.  I am sure once I hit 50 and get Cardiac things will be a lot better, but that is a long ways away right now.  Suggestions on improvements please?  At least I got 54.2% S/L Def and 78.5% S/L Res, but that may have to be lowered to get better endurance costs.  Thanks.

Throw a theft of essence chance for + endurance in the dark armor heal. I'm not sure if it works quite as well as it did before the proc changes as i've not tried DA on HC but it definitely made an impact in the amount of end the rad armor aoe heal returned.

That. Also get the Performance Shifter +End proc in Stamina as well as the Miracle and Panacea uniques. The PS proc has 1.5 PPM (IIRC) which amounts to 1.5 * 10 end per minute or 0.25 end/sec, Miracle +Recov gives you +15% base recovery which amounts to 0.15 * 1.67 end/sec = 0.25 end/sec, and finally Panacea as the best of the bunch with its 3 PPM gives you 3 * 7.5 end each minute or 0.38 end/sec. Combined, these three enhancements give you 0.88 end/sec on average which will be modified by any +MaxEnd you have so just having the two passive accolades boosts this to 0.97 end/sec which is very substantial.

Give a man a build export and you feed him for a day, teach him to build and he's fed for a lifetime.

It is random but still helps a ton. If you get lucky in large spawns you can go from "omg I'm about to detoggle" to "omg I have a full endurance bar"
