Elec/Dark build
« on: December 06, 2014, 09:28:38 PM »
So, my main before the shutdown was a dark/dark corruptor, and while I no longer have the information on the final loadout, I thought it ended up quite useful for anything i ended up doing. Not that I could, say, solo an AV, but still, I had tons of fun with it. However, I'm considering a change to the primary powerset, because it would fit with the concept of the character better, but I still want to optimize as well as I can within those themes. And so I present, for suggestions, advice, and such, a little something I threw together in pursuit of that goal.

1: Lightning: Apocalypse is not a good set to 6-slot, because you're wasting a ton of Damage slotting from it. I don't think that the Psy resist is worth it, especially for a /Dark build. Either 5-slot it, or use the 6th slot for a damage IO, or for a pure Endurance IO if you're having Endurance problems.
2: No Dark Servant? Unless you're absolutely set on not having it for character concept reason, the power is basically a must-have. Put it this way: with Dark Servant, you can solo AVs with this character.
3: Both Power Sink and Conserve Power? I think that's overkill, especially with Electric Blast, since it's the most End-friendly blast set. On the other hand, the Mu Adept is a nice power to have. I'd definitely drop one of the powers for it. Normally I'd keep Conserve Power, but the combination of Short Circuit/Power Sink to drain spawns is interesting to consider.
4: Ball Lightning: same comment as Lightning. Drop one of the Ragnarok IOs, and put the Positron's damage proc IO.
5: Fearsome Stare: do not slot this for Fear. It's long enough duration. Slot it for to-hit instead. 4x Cloud Senses gives you a nice 6.25% Recharge bonus.
6: I'm not sold on all the slots for Combat Jumping. It's Defense is not all that high, and its End cost is pretty low. I always either leave it with a single LotG, or add the Kismet Accuracy IO, no more.

BTW, with Dark Servant, the character should most certainly be able to solo AVs. Using Twilight Grasp and Darkest Night, and Dark Servant's damage debuffs, you should lower the AV's damage down to 20-30% of its normal damage. Add in the resists and being at the soft cap for all types of attacks (after all of the to-hit debuffs), and the character should have no problems surviving in front of basically any AV that you meet in solo arcs. You might want to see if you can put in Hasten and increase the Recharge in Howling Twilight for that, since it's a major -Regen debuff, but defense should not be an issue.

I actually had Hasten to begin with, but figured I could squeeze a bit more defense out of Combat Jumping in it's place. The only reason I have Power Sink is because I misread and thought I needed it as a pre-req. I wanted the lightning aspect despite prefer Ghost Widow's company. It'd be better if I could color that lightning though. I may end up going back to Soul Mastery. Though with the right Incarnate powers, and I was considering having multiple for Destiny, Alpha, and Hybrid, I could shore up the defense without the Leaping pool. I'd rather Electric Blast had more AOE's, Tenebrous Tentacles and Night Fall were great for damage, but if I take both pets, I should have more output regardless. Either way, you brought up fewer concerns than I expected for someone who's barely used Mids' XD

Edit: With your comments in mind, a revamp:

Drop one slot from Twilight Grasp, as you have a ton of +Acc from set bonuses and can afford to lose a bit of Accuracy in it.
Drop 2 slots from Hover (keep the +Recharge and Def/End).
Drop 1 slot from Petrifying Gaze.

This gives you 4 slots. Add 1 slot to each of: Short Circuit, Tough, Charged Armor, Voltaic Sentinel (use the same sets that you have in them already).
This puts you at the soft cap in Ranged and AoE, and moves you to 37% in Melee.

Hmm... I see. Fits my themes while making me both defensible and damaging. Unless there's more that can be done to it, I think this is pretty much set for use when the game returns. Thanks for the help!
