Oogabooga.3812 Posted May 30, 2018 Share Posted May 30, 2018 When I pug t4 fractals, my build is based around chill and blindness, taking advantage of the synergy of Chilling Darkness and Deathly Chill.I know Carrion gear is not exactly popular, but I chose it because you can't help but take condi damage, sometimes VERY heavy condi damage (Social Awkwardness, Afflicted, Toxic Trail, Flux Bomb, Mai Trin, Cliffside). The large amount of vitality often makes me the last one standing, when I wish it doesn't have to be that way. What's also nice is that you can do more than a fair amount of face-tanking of mobs and bosses. The hybrid damage isn't gaudy, but there's enough that not even the DPS meter-running druids (why is it always druids?) will complain about your numbers.Running the blood trait line has some party heal support and HUGE rez support: I can't tell you how many times I saved 3 downed party members at once or pulled someone away from the middle of a flux bomb or Bloomhunger's angery-at-the-ground pounding.Spectral Grasp is a must for pulling trash mobs, making fights shorter and more efficient; also works as a strong CC. GS 5 pulls in the rest.The Well of Darkness and GS 4 helps blind the really powerful trash mobs, especially Urban Battleground and Volcanic; applies chill CC and therefore also bleeding.The last slot I vary depending on the fractal; epidemic is when you have lots of mobs; well of corruption if facing the No Pain, No Gain instability; corrosive poison cloud on the Underground Facility, Molten Furnace, and sometimes Volcanic; "Suffer!" for Cliffside, Mai Trin, and Afflicted instability; summon flesh wurm for certain utility situations like Thaumanova or Uncategorized.I've been running this build for quite awhile now; just sharing for anyone who wants to give it a try!P.S. For t3 fractals and lower, I change the blood line to soul reaping for higher DPS since the party usually doesn't need as much support. You can still stand side-by-side your melee brothers and sisters face-tanking everything! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
