Spear Build on Dominating
« on: April 06, 2021, 03:07:01 am »
Based on old school Cryo-Sniper build, made some tweaks, very intuitive.

Use Impale (Your bread and butter) and Cryostasis to shatter living targets, a much better combo than Cryo-Sniper.

Or,

Use Destabilization + Damage Grenade + Flashbang(Optional, to disable evasion and trigger Opportunist) + Spear Throwing to deal with group enemies.


Core Skills

All core skills can be acquired by level 14,

Attention! There is 1 attribute point remaining, if you wanna play the aggressive version, put it on Dex, otherwise on Agi.

Join JKK for persuasion equipment~

From now on, there are two branches, both viable for Dominating (Classic Recommended)


Aggressive Version

Poseidon:

All the subsequent feats are to enhance dmg output.

Defensive Version

More interesting and maneuverable (Stylish appearance, suitable for a post-apocalyptic world~)

Steven Spearburg:

Equipment:

Riot gear with Psi bug shield (Study Vest + Black overcoat)

Gameplay:

5 spec into shield bash to achieve a free attack every turn (can proc incapacitation)

Daze lock + Dilation = -30 action points for single target

Cryo-Shield + Spear Guard+ Riot Shield = melee immunity. Well, almost...

Medium + High shield emitter to defend range attacks (No, not on dominating, shatter those psi caster or gunner first)

What is the weapon you used for the build and which metathermics did you take/ use? sorry i'm a little new to the game and have only tried out crossbows for dominating and never used melee.

Tungsten Spear for its 120% critical dmg bonus.

Also,i would recommend a Extended headband. You'll get 7 slots together with 8 int.

All the Psi skills you need:
Four Metathermics:
1. Cryokinesis: To stack chilled debuff and get a 5-turn frozen. You can cast 2 Cryokinesis and Cryostasis within 1 turn under Tranquility
2. Cryostasis: Core skill
3. Destabilization: Core skill
4. Cryo-Shield: Only if you choose to play the defensive version

Three Temporal Manipulation:
1. Limited Temporal Increment: Free Increment with Tranquility
2. Psycho-temporal Dilation: Combo with Shield bash,only if you choose to play the defensive version
3. Contraction: 20 bonus AP means 1 more spear attack every turn.

Pretty decent rendition of the MT Hoplite. However while i dont know too much about regular spear builds Hoplites dont need spear throw and no build needs 8 int. A good rule of thumb is that the Hoplite is very similar to hammer wizard so you should always try to increase tankiness

This is my altered (possibly dominating viable) version of the defensive build:
https://underrail.info/build/?HhADBwkDAwUAMgDCoAAAwqBBSQAAWlUyIlAAAMKgRi0AZCZQKzkNwpQSwqrCr0vCgsKswofCiMKrLsK2CuKdtATin4QB4qe-BeK2tQLitrYD378

No spear throw, getting that much dex spreads you to thin and its better to just get more CON than waste those skill points on one feat. All points from dex removed and int taken down to five, five is all you need for crafting on most builds, if you're really spartan you can go 3 and bump up con, this is more efficient but its hard to pull off since you need alot of bonuses to craft effectively.

Dodge and nimble are removed, you're a tank and tanks don't dodge and they certainly arent nimble, if you need MP it can be found in sprint rather than trying to lower armour penalty. I changed alot of other things as well like grabbing iron grip earlier since you can easily get a riot shield in junkyard or from the underpassages if you're smart, in a perfect world I'd remove TM since its a crutch but i wont deny it is OP.

Honestly man your Defense build was pretty good but it was definitely not dominating viable, I'd definitely use it on hard but its trying to be 2 things and that doesn't work on dom. As far as im concerned though the agressive version was perfectly fine. Good job!
