Auric Maelstrom - Bubble Smite Support
Build for Darktide
primarily focused on voidstrike spam and supporting with bubble+smite.
deals with basically anything; hordes, specials, ranged, armor, it even has decent boss dmg.
can stunlock entire screens. helpful to deal with mixed horde.
block bullets and grant toughness regen then gives a large damage reduction buff when expiring.
the build lacks most in boss damage and I love blocking bullets so I usually go deimos. if you want more deimos damage and no bullet blocking replace deflector with unstable power, riposte, or blazing spirit. IV dueling and illisi are good alternatives.
is to sit behind your allies and spam voidstrike at anything that isnt friendly, vent peril so you dont kill yourself and use smite/bubble when necessary. both skills when properly utilized can completely reverse a situation that would otherwise be a party wipe. use bubble to stop groups of shooters/gunners from shredding your team, and to provide toughness regen + DR for boss fight. for boss damage use deimos special heavy if its safe to be close, otherwise charged voidstrikes.
