DPS Huntress - How?

Recommended Posts

Having levelled one and then geared her up with gear I had, I'm slightly unsure as to how to build her now.

Piercing shot scales only with Ability Power, not with Hero Damage.

Auto attack scales only with HD, not with AP.

Piercing shot is pretty useless on magic resist lanes.

Auto attack is pretty useless on physical resist lanes.

So how does one play a DPS Huntress? Split stats between AP and HD, and PS a physical resist lane before moving to auto attack a magic resist lane, rinse and repeat?

Either way, I find it distinctly underwhelming being a DPS character and being fairly hamstrung by resistances... It would be nice if you totally specialise, and at least be properly good at holding down a lane.

Go full AP and get the stickynades uber. Use stickynades on all magic resist lanes and piercing shot on all physical resist lanes.

Farm Ramparts NM4 Incursion get yourself the bow that drops of Malthius. Breaker - reduces mobs resistances = best dps in game


Edit:

you go full AP and do wht the above person stated.

but now you Auto Attacks also hit like a truck.

it also makes your Towers do MUCH more damage.

Wanted to try this, but NM4 INC Ramparts have 2m+ hp little skeletons at first wave, about 10-20 of them. How is it possible to do it??? I have no problem with Liferoot...

I can beat it, its just a harder map than liferoot. trial and error till you learn the map.

Freeze them and crush them with something.

It's possible, just really annoying/time consuming, it's easier now with the new frostbite passives, still takes a long time though, and build placemenet still frustrates me on that map. Having a good hero dps in group really helps.

Yes, I've been trying to get the bow. A few attempts got me a build that worked, but not without a lot of pain - takes a lot longer than liferoot. Doesn't help when you have opposite resist ogres, not to mention Malthius' skeles tended to have opposite resists too - the first time I forgot to check his lane for resists, as there isn't a line coming from it. I killed them, but good grief it took ages.

Also the heal everything circle mechanic is just - stupid. IMHO anyway. If they're going to have them, at least show them to us at the start of the game. I knew the position of the far right lane, sort of. Not good enough cause Ogre was *just* touching it when pounding my barrier, gg game over. And who's decided that heal *everything* was a good idea? At least Malthius' heals give you a chance.

If other people want to farm the thing we could party up; be easier with 4 than solo I suspect. Or if someone has a reliable build, that would help too! Although I think I know the heal circle locations now.

Also, on a couple of lanes I want to build barriers on stairs as well - guess what, mobs easily get pushed over your barriers if you build them on downward stairs; you don't need that big a pile up before it happens. Just, ugh. You can tell I've spent a bit of time in the last 24 hours trying the map, can't you? :P

They should honestly just do away with ability power.  All hero damage including abilities damage should be based off is hero dmg/hero crit/hero critical dmg.  As is there are too many stats.

Good solution but boring as hell right. If there´s only one solution to a problem in a game like this the devs should look at it cos it´s just plain old boring.
