Warder

Shaman + Soldier

 
 

Summary
A lightning warrior focusing on delivery massive blows of lightning every hit. Ultos reincarnated.
For the equipment, health, armor and resistances will help this build the most.
For the jewelry, lightning damage, attack speed, anything that will increase your damage output.
Since this is a 2 hand build, we won't be able to use an off hand for extra stats, so when looking for a weapon, it's important what it takes advantage of our damage type.
Skills can be allocated anywhere in any amount, the skills chosen in the build and amount are intended for max level,basically, work with what works for you while leveling.

Gloves Mythical Thundertouch Bracers The only glove option we have that helps with our lightning damage and physical damage simultaniously.
