8. Character Builds
Builds that I myself have personally tested, with my subjective a*sessment of their playability and fun.
8.1 Spark + Dual SMGs
Dual SMGs is best for shooting effects, such as lightning that cast on every second shot and fireball, which appears every fourth shot.
Thanks to the large magazine and pa*sives of Spark, we will have infinitely replenished ammo and constant lightning and fire.
Take the upgrade tree for reload rate and all upgrades from the Summon tree – DO NOT NEED.
Choose Priority Upgrades:
- UPGRADES YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE. You must choose upgrades to increase damage and replenish ammo.
ViewNameDescriptionElectro Mage16 lightning per 22 damage + 32 lightning per 5 damage.
Damage increase due to large magazine.EnergizedRefill ammo with lightning.Double ShotAdditional projectile, increases initial total damage by 33%.
Fireball every 4 shots (40 damage and ignite).
Before that, take Pyro Mage.Electro Mastery
Lightning damage increased by 12 and area of effect increased by 75%.Overload
When lightning strikes an ignited enemy, it explodes, dealing 25 damage. Huge damage increase.Frostbite
Slow and damage against elite enemies (25% max HP).
Before that, take Frost Mage.Intense Burn
Increases Ignite Damage by 35%.Frost FIre
Freezing an enemy also inflicts Ignite, dealing 6 damage per second. Additional damage.
- Getting ready for the bosses and the late game.
ViewNameDescriptionShatterEnemies killed by Frozen explode, dealing damage to nearby enemies for 25% of max HP. Additional damage.Assa*sinAutomatically kills enemies below 20% Health. Huge damage. In the tree, you can take all previous upgrades for bullet speed.FusilladeDoubles the number of projectiles. Before that, take Split Fire.SplinterOn death, the enemy explodes releasing 3 projectiles that deal 10% damage. Increasing the spread of ignite. Before that, take Power Shot.
- Additional improvements (optional at will).
ViewNameDescriptionRubber BulletsBullet Bounce and a slight increase in the fire rate. Before that, take Rapid fire.ExcitementWe increase the pickup range for experience. In the tree, you can take all previous upgrades.GiantTogether with Vitality you will get +3 Max HP.In the WindIncrease damage and movement speed. In the tree, you can take all previous upgrades.
Items. Our priority is Charged Up and Electro Affinity. The first boosts us lightning damage and receiving bullets, and the second increases lightning damage by +50%. Electrical Fire feel free to skip.
Tomes. Tome of Elements increases by third our elemental effects, and Tome of Rage increases the rate of fire on 66% and triples the max ammo. Of course, in this case, your bullet damage will be equal to 0. If you don’t want to lose in bullet damage, then take a bunch of Tome of Power and Tome of Elasticity. But in return you will get max HP -2.
