Theorycrafting a Dark/Earth Dom
« on: August 18, 2014, 02:10:35 AM »
I'm bored, so creating a paper Dom. Decided the -tohit would work wonders for a melee happy Earth Assault character. So I came up with a Dark/Earth/Ice Dom.

The way I've envisioned his group attack chain going is BU/Fearsome Stare/Spring Attack/Hard Control (Heart of Darkness or Shadow Field/Sleet/Fissure/Ice Storm/Tremor.
That should clear out just about everything except maybe a boss or so.
Total activation time is ~15 seconds, so give me 20 seconds to pull it off in reality.
Total damage is ~937 for this plus whatever my pets put in and adding the -resist from sleet.
the -tohit during this exchange is ~38% using HoD and ~61% during Shadow Field.

I'm using Force Feedback +rech extensively to make sure I have my permadom and permahasten covered.

I have an end usage for that attack chain of 90.79. That's gonna leave me with very little to attack whatever is left and not mezzed... Nevermind, I will get back about 50 of my End by the completion of the chain.

My only real question is looking at my not too great personal Defense, do you think it will be enough for larger targets like AVs?

Also, does anyone know if the BU in Soulbound Allegiance affects the player or just the pet? And does it trigger from pets use or just as you summon him?

As always, any input is appreciated.

I'm pretty sure it triggers from the pet attacks and does buff you.

It has a chance to trigger on you when you summon the pet, and then a chance to trigger on the pet for every attack they make. The buff, when triggered, is also shared across all pets of the same  tier. Example, if an MM arsonist triggers the buff with an attack, the other two henchmen thugs would also receive the buff, but the lieutenants and bruiser would not.
