What is the best dps hero atm


Recommended Posts

I'd say crane monk with crit build.

Zimmermann already made a post about it so I just link I guess. He explains everything, how to build, what passives, etc.

I also like Dryad with AP/crit build you can make high DMG bursts.

For Dryad I go with AP/crit with crit chance and Starfall dmg increase passive. For spheres you can choose whatever you want.. just a few DPS spheres.. you'll know what you need. :D

Thanks!

Just a warning, though, if you go with the Dryad Corrupt Starfall you'll need other people for Siege Rollers. The Monk Crane Stance shreds Rollers, though.

lol it's so funny  before Siege Roller when everything was a cakewalk the Monk wouldn't even get deck space.

Thank you Siege Roller for showing the value of this guy beyond a serenity place. Ok crane stance may have some issues but the SR now highlights this.

Mystic is great for CC as is Lavamancer

Gw and EV melt most things

Huntress and Apprentice can also be played effectively

In fact all are viable just what flow are your boat

Crane stance and bewitching hour are doubling the damage that all monks and Gunwitch's can do if you make the correct choice with glaives/guns. 

I am still waiting for 3x siege roller to test non crane stance dps, but nevertheless while crane stance and bewitching hour bugs are active the rollers are not remotely challenging bar one map on solo (which we do not need to go into XD). I am pretty sure that unmentioned map is impossible solo vs 3 siege rollers.

I am pretty confidence I will smoke 3x rollers without crane stance and with original 4 only and a ground defense build (LA's) on any NM4 Defense/incursion map solo (excluding power surge, sry had to mention it), though the size of Bastille Defense could with some super bad luck be an issue. but it will require special tactics for me to do it safely, involving 2 dragolitchs and 2 poisonous tips as well as a total of 4 heroes.

Special tactics:

Agree fully here with Fozzie. If it goes for damage, there is no class where you can't do really high damage. All are really good kinda, some just require different type of playstyles or how you need to use them, or with certain weapons / builds. Still all are pretty strong if you specialise into something.

[[150185,users]] - just get your Dryad tree Waller out, spam 4-6 trees per lane only 1 time. Then use original 4 heroes from there and you can GG Power Surge. ;-)

Pretty good standard there. Although, EV2 is great for everything. Even the Siege Roller. Just like what [[52650,users]] said. GW and EV2 melt most things.

Tree abuse is just the same as crane stance abuse, sure they intended it, but thats only because they couldn't think of a better fix. The easiest fix is actually just giving the map the dryad buff to place towers. But for some reason they didn't implement that.

So no I wont be building trees (haven't even bothered getting the dryad yet anyway) on solo, as having max level trees that never time out is utter cheese.

But....cheese is yummy! :-p ;-) lol


*edit* seriously, though, (kinda off topic) I'd like to have 0 DU trees. Trees are to Dryad as what fissures are to Lavamancer. Can't DPS LM effectively w/out fissures, just like we can't build all w/out trees. So, Here's to 0 DU Trees!
