The builds performance is amazing, I’m looking for suggestions on improvement and input from someone who is more experienced with ray builds (I’m not the best pilot for showcasing gameplay)


I’ve heard rumors that Ele -> Pierce on the belt might be gone in :thinking: not sure if it’s going to happen.
Not commenting on the build because it looks good.

Not rumors, confirmed by Zantai. It’s on the pierce feedback thread.

Infiltrator could possibly be an improvement (for WoP’s RR, damage and additional devo proccing).
What made you choose BM? It’s fine for me if it’s just your preference.

The main appeal of going soldier over inquisitor is the defensive stats.
Scars of Battle gives me 40% stun / freeze resistance and 27% armor absorption
20% slow resistance
Field command command for 27% armor and 112 DA

I feel fighting spirit + oleron’s rage are comparable to deadly aim + aura of conviction for damage boost.

Going Infiltrator I would go inquisitor seal for the absorb and Word of Pain for the debuff; I’m not sure how I feel about the extra casts affecting my beam uptime, plus Inquisitor seal can be quite punishing for mages to use while kiting.
