The Darkness War
The “Riot Truck” build, a hammer shotgun setup that works great all the way from elites to the toughest Nightmare Dungeons.
Once you obtain enough hit rating (500-650) You can swap the Paradigm Shift passive for Double Dash to have a greater up-time of the Major Block effect through “Trucker”.
Replacing one of your defensive cooldowns when you’re confident about your tanking skills will result in more DPS through this active.
Provides your group and yourself with a buff that reduces damage taken by 15% for 5 seconds.
Under most cases this ability is completely overkill mitigation wise. So, useful when you want more mitigation instead of damage.
HOW IT WORKS
This build has a lot of mitigation and covers a lot of your glyph points even in blue gear.
Hammer sadly lacks a high hate PBAoE builder, as such it’s slightly trickier to use than chaos or blade as primary weapon.
Shotgun turret requires you to target yourself in order to gain your shotgun weapons support effect, granting you additional mitigation. This ability can be cast at 1 resource as its primary function is to apply Debilitate through Improved Blasts.
Once used to tanking replace stone walled for either Raging bullet or Defensive turret to make better use of your shotgun resources.
You can use Beatdown or Shockwave to impair special abilities such as Charged Hack.
