While Outriders Worldslayer adds a plethora of new gear, that doesn’t mean everything from the base game is obsolete. In fact, by investing your PAX points in the right tree you can even make your old reliable gear even more useful. This is certainly the case with the best Devastator build in Worldslayer.
The Seismic Commander Devastator is a new variation on an old stand bye for the class. By using the Seismic Commander legendary armor set to boost your skills you can double down on being a damage dealing tank. New passive enhancements in Worldslayer gives this old flavor a brand new twist.
Best Devastator Skills in Outriders Worldslayer
There are two abilities that are going to be key to making this powerful build work. Earthquake and Impale are Seismic skills and they are going to be boosted to the max by the ways you will spec the character.
For your final skill you should choose either Tremor or Reflect Bullets. Since most of the Devastator’s abilities are offensive, Reflect Bullets is always a nice well rounded ability that protects you as it deals damage. Tremors, on the other hand, helps you gain health back, so both have their uses.
Just pay attention to which mods you use to determine which skill will be stronger.
Best Class Trees
The Seismic Commander build is all about enhancing your core abilities. It is a pretty unilaterally focused build that ends up being fairly intuitive. For it, we are speccing heavily into the Seismic Shifter part of the Devastator skill tree. These nodes will boost your Seismic abilities and also increase the effectiveness of the Bleed status effect.
You’ll want all of the major passive traits at the end of the Seismic Shifter tree including Protected by the Anomaly. We also recommend capping off the bleed part of the build with Blood Donation, which makes it so that Bleed damage heals you.
Best Devastator PAX Tree
In terms of PAX points, you are going to spec towards the Tectonic Shifter half of the tree. The two most important traits on this tree are Puncture and Multistrike. These two big buffs will tie the build together at last.
Multistrike makes it so that 30% of damage dealt by Seismic skills is stored and added to the next Seismic skill you activate. Puncture adds bleed damage to all Seismic skills.
How to Spend Ascension Points
There are a lot of benefits you can get out of the Ascension Points in Worldslayer, but for this build you’ll want to prioritize Anomaly Power first. This will synergize well with the choices you just made in your PAX tree.
After maxing that out, you can focus your Ascension Points on Cooldown Reduction, Skill Leech, Health, and Armor. These all great ways to make up for the inherent weakness of the Devastator.
Best Gear and Mods for Seismic Commander
Like with the Heat Seeking Pyromancer, the lynchpin of this Devastator build is a set of Legendary loot. By equipping at least three components of the Seismic Commander set, you will Increase damage towards enemies with Bleed by 50%.
This build works to some degree without the full Seismic Commander gear set, so it’s okay if you are rolling with only three. However, there are a lot of great mods that drop on this Legendary gear.
The Seismic Commander’s Helmet by default gives Bleed damage to Earthquake and two more charges to Impale before its cooldown activated. This piece is one of the best. If you want to focus on the Bleed synergy of the build, you’re going to want the Seismic Commander’s Leg Armor. Each piece of the set will enhance one or both of your Seismic skills in a major way, so keep an eye out for them while you’re grinding Trial of Tarya Gratar.
In terms of weapon mods, anything that enhances your Bleed damage or Seismic skills is top priority. Mage’s Rage and Fortress mods are also always good to have on whichever Legendary weapons you want to bring to the fight.
