Archetype = Fighting/Energy

Update Log:

[7/15] New talent setup & powers chosen, just couldn't get over the clunkiness of using ace of spades. Swapped Legendary from over to a for a higher Hp pool & better damage results. New infinity distribution as well as updated the total for 1430 points. Hero Synergy picks updated as well.

[4/15] Infinity distribution Updated & ttk updated to reflect recent change in Golden Bow of Apollo's proc damage w/ patch 2.08. Slight cosmic artifact affix change - defense rating swapped to +150 spirit while in combat. Section on legendary picks added to gearing.

[4/4] Dmg vs boss/CDR Storm Insignia changed to a Crit/Crit Damage Havok Insignia, Infinity Distribution updated & hero synergy picks all updated for Patch 2.07, new ttk vid added to reflect changes.

Talents

 

Row 1: Ragin Cajun - A fallen remnant of it's former self, Only direct choice in the row that provides some form of damage. Yet sadly does not provide it's once great visual from the pre-BUE era.

 

Row 2: King of Hearts - All 3 picks in this row are so tiny/miniscule that it won't make much of a difference what you use, so feel free to take something else in this row. I personally prefer using this one for the increased hp pool/life on hit.

 

Row 3: Stack the Deck: Bounces back n forth between a +25% damage buff to either Ranged or Melee as you fully deplete your Kinetic Energy.

 Alternative choice - Jacks or Better - Selecting this causes Dead Man's Hand & Wild Card casts to explode every 5th card for an additional Area damage explosion.

Row 4: Three of a Kind:- Everything in this row was the most customizeable & was ballpark close to each other throughout my testing. so mainly this is selected for personal preference but all 3 can perform close to equal.  Trick Card comes with 3 charges that Autocrit and deals Physical damage & is perfect for proccing hybrid items like The Power Doop.

 

Alternative choice 1 - Deuces Wild - For Dueces Wild your only ever going to want to lightly tap Ace of Spades just enough to quickly shoot it without charging the card to get the damage boost for Batter Up active. However the big downside is that AoS activation can be quick cumbersome.

Alternative choice 2 -Shuffle Ip & Deal: If Shuffle Up & Deal is picked, then FYI both the regularly casted House of Cards & the House of Cards proc from / will NOT stack with each other at all.

 

Row 5: Ace of hearts - Best pick of the row imo since it functions automatically with your Signature, and no hassle of having to manually charge the super clunky Ace of Spades.

Gearing

 

Some notes: The main focus of this build was primarily on -%Cost Reduction & +Spirit on Hit via items & Infinity points -  in order to stretch out his Kinetic Energy for as long as possible to minimize recharging downtime, as basically all of his powers will lose dps while his kinetic energy recharges.

 

Legendary picks:

Lvl 70 =

lvl 70 Alternative - also decent for the increased 20% XP towards leveling/Infinity grinding.

Lvl 80 = Pro's= provides equal amount of dmg output as the bow of apollo with the added bonus of more Health/Kinetic energy return on enemy defeats, Con's = Slightly slower attacks due to less overall attack speed.

lvl 80 Alternative - So far has been on close to equal footing with CCR now after the most recent change to the Bow's Procs in patch 2.08, still a decent pick however if a faster attack speed is more to your liking.

 

 

Catalyst: Genetic Mutation Preferably with these affixes, Bolded ones are a priority...

[Important note!!] the catalyst at the top shows 94 spirit however that's wrong you want the 5 spirit on hit, which isn't an option on the website atm though.

  • 5 Spirit on hit
  • Regenerate 25% Hp (3000) & Spirit (100) on Medkit use
  • +3 Energy or Fighting
  • Invis on Medket

 Cosmic Bonus: 2 Options here Depending on what you want/need be it dps or higher ttl...

  • After using a signature power, gain 1000 Damage Rating for 4s

           or

  • Gain a damage shield for %50 of your maximum health on medkit use.

 Mutation Bonus:

  • Gain 1000 health per second for 10s, when your health drops below %40 (30s cd)

           or

  • When you use your signature power, gain 1000 defense rating for 5s (20s cd)

 

 

 Insignia Choices:

, ,   or...

 

Current time was recorded using the Storm Insignia shown in build. However My preffered choice would be an Insignia of Iceman With either Ranged/Crit Damage or Crit/Crit Damage.   However Dmg vs Bosses/Crit Damage can also work as well. 

And too a lesser extent Brutal strike rating/Crit Damage might also work depending on what you have available.

 

Medallion Alternatives: Gambit has a nice selection of medals to pick from, but the main focus here was for Spirit return ones, hence why Skrull Medallion Of Bravery was used.

 

, (Spirit on hit) , , .

 

 Artifact Alternatives: some other options include...These all should have Cosmic versions unless otherwise noted in ( ) .

Crit & Brut Options: , , , (No cosmic version available) , (No cosmic version available).
