The Darkness War
A setup that shows you a good way of starting out your scenario runs, it assumes blue QL10 gear but will work with slightly less gear and can be upgraded to a QL 10.4+ build.
HOW IT WORKS
Clearing the path and Arterial Pulse take care of AoE damage output.
Molten Steel is your single target damage ability, anything that survives your initial Clearing the Path will meet your hammer, in scenarios it’s important to balance both your AoE and single target capabilities.
Unstoppable Force is quite glorious, the low cooldown, Heal that can critically heal and immunity to most crowd control in scenarios makes this an incredibly useful elite active. It can be activated while you’re impaired as well, often saving your life and that of the survivors.
Leeching frenzy is an excellent passive for self healing, it can be purged so make sure to reactivate it after ghouls decide to strip you from your buffs before using your consumers.
Adding the passive Immortal Spirit instead of Mad skills can provide you with a somewhat reliable way to activate Thirst/Equilibrium/Coney island band should you obtain these in the future.
Martial Discipline gives you a 50% chance to glance incoming hits, abilities that are glanced take no effect, so impairs have a 50% chance to fail, in addition every glance will incur a small healing affect that can critically heal and activate Thirst/Equilibrium/Coney island band.
