    Default Twist of Fate

    sorry not figuring out the character build thingy, and I have viewed other peeps build generator to figure out how to do level 1-20. ( have been playing for 3 1/2 years TR ing just the one main toon so know level 1-20 quite well, end game knowledge is lacking )

    all fate trees open, all past lives available, Artificer Xbow user, Shiradi Champion.

    What twists of fate should I use ?

    and another question popped into my mind, since I mentioned past lives, am I having a brain fart, but is one of them worthwhile to take ? this is an end game toon till new TR's come out ( 40th life )

    Default Twists

    My Artie has the following twists:
    Rejuvenation cocoon- fast,cheap healing for me and others
    Boulder toss- 1.5-3 k damage ( affected by force spell power and lore)
    Primal scream- +5 str and con for 3 minutes plus 30d20 sonic damage in wide area

    I'd actually drop into FotW and twist in Cocoon, and two stances/attacks from Shiradi, whatever you have Fate points to fit. Pin+Ottos is a popular combination, Prism+Double Rainbow also works, but those require you to have a lot more Fate points than you probably do.

    FotW works really nicely with Repeaters, since all your Adrenaline attacks get tripled, so you get 3 for the price of 1. Once you get Unbridled to regenerate Adrenalines, its just insane.

    Energy burst / cocoon / energy sheathe

    cocoon always stays, sheathe and energy burst are interchangeable depending on the quest. Lots of trash mobs energy burst. acid burst not that great? then sense weakness, big raid boss that will stay at range then the tier 4 in shadow dancer. I swap out energy sheathe for boulder toss in quests that don't need the extra protection

    This really all depends on your play style.

    I was actually going to run in Shadowdancer for evasion, sneek attack damage, manipultion and int bonuses. I was very unwhelmed by my ability to even get shadow charges so I dropped.

    Shiradi is nice but I did not find the procs working as much as they so with my Sorc. But if I run in a group with no casters I will sometimes run in this for the side effect CC effects.

    I have found that I run 70% of the time in Draconic for the DPS and additional SP. As such I slot in Stay Frosty for the Slow effect, which procs surprising often, Spell School Sec from Magister for bonus to TD, BB and Prismatic Strike, and Lithe from Shadowdancer for a boost to Reflex and AC.

    I am mostly a ranged focused with with great CC through TD. I have a DC of 50-54 all depending and it lands very often even on EE for a first lifter.

    I have been reading a lot that FotW is the destiny to go for DPS and I think I will check it out.

    But when I am not in Draconic I will also slot in Precise Casting (for DC's again). Nothing keeps you alive better than not having stuff attack you even.

    I am a Human with Construct Essense and have no problem healing myself with Reconstruct so I have not worried about Cocoon or anything.

    If I was going a different route I would use different twists, so again it all depends on your play style.

    Grim precision, pin, otto's in fotw.

    otto's is more a whatever you want though, I usually actually stick in brace for impact to be honest as I hate getting crit.

    I usually use shiradi for the CC (especially in EE Content) and twist in Boldertoss, Lithe and Sense Weakness (which is just super awesome with all the CC stuff). For EE Tor and FoT I change Sense Weakness for Energy Sheathe Electricity.
