Hi all,

 

I'm still waiting for the game client to download.

 

Just wondering what a good caster Damage over Time (DoT) build would be? Is such a build possible in-game?

 

I'm looking for an optimal DoT caster class, so I can spam DoTs on all targets with impunity. 

 

Similar to the Affliction build of WoW's Warlock, as a reference.

 

Can this be done in ArcheAge?

 

Appreciated.

I dont know, but im pretty shure that is kinda impossible. Specially if u use warlock/WoW as a reference.
Maybe u can build a instant cast character, but a Dot caster i think it's impossible.  B)

There are very few true DoTs in the game tbh, off the top of my head there's the Arclightning's debuff, the Flamebolts Conflagration debuff, and the bleed and poison debuffs, both of which have only one basic source of application (poison has a combo as well) and maybe one or two more combo's that produce a minor DoT.

 

Essentially stacking up dots on something is not really an option, the dots don't last long enough or do enough damage compared to the cooldowns of the spells.

 

You can on the other hand make a very AoE focussed build or a very Channeling focussed build, both of which work fairly well while solo-ing (once you get enough of your abilities), and have high combo potential with other classes.
