Intro:

 

Suggestion:

First prioritize hatchet (melee berserker then ranged throwing) while life staff secondary (for Speed of Light movement and heals), and musket tertiary (at lvl 30 three weapon switching) because ammo costs/crafting/collecting, but all of this is just a guide… ¬†I provide two build options for life staff skills to suit your tastes.

BUILD SYNERGIES

(melee dmg hatchet, ranged dmg hatchet/musket/life staff, healing life staff)
NOTE: Working to confirm which passive/active skills work across weapons or only when that specific weapon is selected…?

    ~18 total skills that increase damage among your weapons.  Damage increases per hit on target while Berserking!

Increase Self Movement:

    Berserking 20% Speed for 18s+, Speed of Light 40m/(20s- CD), Transcendence 50% speed while aiming life staff, and -20% slow duration.

Decrease Target Movement:

    Leg Shot -30% for 2s, Traps (x2 for 30s) immobilizes 5s/(25s- CD), and Super Siphon /(5s- CD) reduces movement.

Cooldown Reduction:

    Berserking Refresh all CD except Berserk /(45s- CD) by 10%/hit received while Berserking, Desperate Refresh -20% all CD when health<40%, Refreshing Headshot throwing axe -20% all CD, Refresh when using Life Staff -10% CDs, and Play Dead /(60s- CD) Resets all cooldowns.

Death Prevention:

    • Immortal while Berserking 18s+/(45s- CD), Resuscitate revives self /15min, Play Dead /(60s- CD) dump aggro for PvE and disable name plate for PvP, and Ancient Guardian invulnerability for 10s when health<20%/15min

(option 2 ONLY)

    .

Damage Reduction:

    • Damage Resist -10%, Super Siphon /(5s- CD) -30% for group member

(option 1 ONLY)

    • , and Holy Shield /(25s- CD) protects group from projectiles in AoE shield for 15s

(Option 2 ONLY)

    .

Healing:

    Purged Recovery 15%/debuff/(20s- CD), Rejuvenating Kills/20%, Soul steal regenerate/kill, Divine Embrace /(8s- CD) with Light’s Grace +50% powerful ranged small AoE heal, Celestial (heavy) Projectiles heal friends, Arcane Justice when hit 4m/2min.

Mana+Heal:

    • Siphon /(5s- CD) mana with Life Stealer regenerate health & powerful heal one friend

(option 1 ONLY)

    .

Buff:

    Spirits United mana regen for group in 10m by 25%.

Utility?:

    Purge /(20s- CD) remove debuffs with 5s immunity, Mass Resurrection upon reviving within 15m/15min.

The difference between builds is Option 1 has Siphon skill tree while Option 2 has Holy Shield skill tree and Ancient Guardian passive.  Option 1 is more for solo pve self sustainability & small-scale pvp focused while option 2 is more for large scale pve/pvp grouping & ranged focused.

SLOTTING SUGGESTION (for both build options):

NOTE:  This is important to follow because you have to balance the cooldowns among weapons since they have global cooldown per skill slot!  All Heals are in separate groupings.  Most powerful (lengthy) cooldowns are seperated (Berserk, Speed of Light, and Play Dead).
Build Option 1 – Siphon
Per SLOT “Q/R/F” Groupings: (Hatchet, Life Staff, Musket)
Slot Group: Berserk (45s), Siphon (5s), Shooter’s Stance (25s)
Slot Group: Purge (20s), Speed of Light (20s), Traps (25s)
Slot Group: Aimed Throw (7s), Divine Embrace (8s), Play Dead (60s)

Build Option 2 – Holy Shield
Per SLOT “Q/R/F” Groupings: (Hatchet, Life Staff, Musket)
Slot Group: Berserk (45s), Holy Shield (25s), Shooter’s Stance (25s)
Slot Group: Purge (20s), Speed of Light (20s), Traps (25s) ¬†(Swapping Traps & Shooter’s Stance may work better if ranging more often)
Slot Group: Aimed Throw (7s), Divine Embrace (8s), Play Dead (60s)

Example Combo:
(1) Musket attack until response.
Advancing: (2) Traps then Aimed Throw
Fleeing: (2) Shooter’s Stance then SoL. If they SoL, then play dead to repeat SoL…
(3) (siphon if needed) Berserk for 15s+
(4) SoL, Purge, or Trap.
(5) Aimed throw or Divine Embrace as needed, then Play Dead to reset CDs.
(5.5) SoL, Purge, or Trap.  (if needed otherwise skip to 6)
(6) (siphon if needed) Berserk if melee or Shooter’s Stance if range
(6.5) SoL, Purge, or Trap. ¬†(if didn’t use in 5.5)
(7)  Finish them!

CORE ATTRIBUTES (roughly in order of importance with flexibility to suit your playstyle):

 

Constitution

    (enough to live): Increase Health Pool and %HP based heals (Purged Recovery 15%, Rejuvenating Kills 20%)

Intelligence

    • (increase hybridization): Increase Life Staff ranged magical healing/damage AND increase

Magical Perks on all physical weapons damage on Hatchet and Musket (see below weapon perks)  Magic damage is going to be more important because many people are wearing heavy armor.Focus

    (enough, along with skill based CDR, to maintain maximal uptime of Berserker while fighting): Increase Mana recovery rate and decrease cooldowns.

Dexterity

    : Increase Hatchet/Musket ranged physical damage if you prefer range dmg.

Strength

    : Increase Hatchet melee physical damage.  (Lowest priority because STR stat only affects melee hatchet unless you mainly only melee PvE)

 

ITEM PERKS & RESOURCES:

Some Weapon Perks to look for:
Magical Perks (INT scaling)- [+30/40/50% dmg GLOWING effect!: Abyssal (Void), Empowered (Magic), Electrified (Lightning), Ignited (Fire)] on physical weapons (Hatchet & Musket)]
Increase Purged Recovery healing % on Hatchet?
Keen +XX% Base Damage
Headshot
Crit
Life Staff perks preferred???
Lucky – chance of getting rarer items

Heavy Armor primarily, but don’t be afraid to use other armor if high quality.
Elemental Ward – Elemental Damage Absorption
Reduced weight perk for greater dodging
Corruption Resistance
Lucky – chance of getting rarer items

Use all your resources: Home buffs, camp (respawn there at death instead of inn), food (Invigorated Effect, which provides slow Health Recovery and additional Constitution for 20 minutes), drink, potions & tinctures, weapon coatings (small/moderate/large/maximal bonus to damage against XXX. Lasts for 5 minutes), and playing with others!
