Is this shard setup for the hornets good and what can i improve on?

Recommended Posts

Hornets 

- Destruction

- Defense Rate

- Defensive Critical Damage ( going for vampiric but my luck with shards is terrible ) 


Any improvements i could make? I am going to replace Destruction with Mass Destruction when Mastery comes back.

I'm looking to get Mass Destruction when mastery comes back but thankyou for the clarification. :)

This may be superfluous but end game I would reommend:

Destruction(gilded)/mass destruction/destructive pylon

As for mods:

max rate/controller/anti-melee

Im late into end game among the top of leaderboards & those work really well for me

Unless something has changed, doesn't destructive pylon specifically state "Does not stack with Destruction.....".   Meaning that you are effectively only putting a Power Pylon into the tower if you are also using Destruction.  

(If there is some sort of bug that lets them stack then I would love for someone to explain it)

Yeah but it works apparently ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Trendy did comment & say they plan to fix that but that was about a year ago so..


it's easily replaced with a vampiric empowerment either way

I would swap out the crit damage for vampiric.

Is it fair to take advantage of a bug? I mean it's up to everyone what they do but for me personally I wouldn't use the bug.

i also would like to know what range is best for hornets and slimes  and nimbus  

Using something like deadly strikes that increases the range on your bees has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is awesome map coverage. The disadvantage is that the bees have to travel further between targets, which takes away from time they could be doing damage. If you have an incredibly large coverage area, this can cause issues. A bee might kill something on the far right side of its range, then head to something on the far left side, then back. All that time it takes to travel kills your dps.


What I generally do is use a deadly strikes or mod until I get my range gambit up, then switch it out for something with more damage like vampiric. 


This all basically applies to all dryad defenses.

Doesnt Destruction stack on Mass Destruction? 


Thanks i will have a go at this setup once Mastery comes back. Do you have any idea when it will be back?
