DP/Pain help


Recommended Posts

I've been tinkering with this build for days and I'm still at a loss  :'( I'm aiming for perma-WOP and -Painbringer but other than that have no idea what my build goals should be (never played corruptors back in the day). Here is the most recent build I came up with, which has garbage defense and perma-Hasten, which I'm not sure is necessary. I have a few questions:


- What are the skippable powers in each set? After messing around with Soothing Aura I think I'm going to drop that one, and potentially one of the ST attacks in DP, as well as Empty Clips.

- What is the ST attack chain for DP? Do I need Pistols/Dual Wield/Executioner's Shot AND Piercing Rounds?

- I used to aim for softcapped Range defense but see a lot of people lately shooting for softcapped S/L instead - which is better?

- What exactly should I be slotting for in WoP? I went for +resist because the 10% ToHit should be enough coupled with Anguishing Cry's massive defense debuff.

- I see a lot of people slotting procs in the DP attacks...which ones and where?


Sorry for all the questions...I used to be good at crafting builds but 10 years is a long time!

Hey, where did you end up on this build? I started a Dual Pistols/Pain corruptor the other day and was looking around for some guidance, as I have no experience with Corruptors or these power sets. It's been really fun into the 20s, but I'm definitely curious about the long-term viability of things like Soothing Aura. And why did you ditch Empty Clips? I understand Piercing Bullets, seeing as how it's a 4-degree cone, which basically doesn't qualify.

Here's my final AR/Pain build.  Might help you out?  I went for getting my resistances as high as possible and ignored defense.
