Lupus Orphea Build
I feel this is the best build. E build is super safe and doesn't for you to play up like with W build. Q build is also super high skill cap and puts all of your power into just your Q button which if you miss means you have nothing left.
Non-Heroic Abilities deal 20% more damage to Stunned, Rooted, Silenced or Slowed enemies and grant 1 additional Chaos when hitting Heroes.
E build let's you set yourself up for this to proc basically on everything you cast.
Dread's Slow also applies to enemies in Dread's path.
See level 1
Quest: Hitting Heroes with Dread increases its damage by 4, up to 160. Reward: After hitting 40 Heroes, hitting an enemy Hero with Dread's eruption sets its cooldown to 6 seconds and refunds 50 Mana.
Better than the W talent imo. Just synergizes with the rest of the build. More E's is good. Heroes can be hit by any part of the ability not just the explosion which is what I thought this meant at first.
After 1.25 seconds, pull enemies in an area towards the center, dealing 250 damage and Stunning them for 0.5 seconds.
Pretty much always crushing Jaws. The short CD and combo potential are too good to give up.
After dashing with Shadow Waltz, Orphea gains 50 Spell Armor, stacking up to 2 times. While Orphea has Determination, her Physical damage is increased by 15%
Spell shield gives good protection against enemy burst. Also I think the other 2 talents here are just not all that great.
After Dread erupts and for 2 seconds after, activate to cast Chomp from the eruption area.
I think this talent tier is really flexible. I think Lurking is standard though. % damage against heavy frontline. Although Dead magic could be good because armor stacking is prevelant right now.
Crushing Jaws reduces the Armor of Heroes hit by 25 for 2 seconds. Takedowns set its cooldown to 5 seconds.
I've pretty much only picked this talent. The CDR on a takedown with no other limitations is really good. The trait talent seems like it might be ok if you're poppin off but that's about it.
