Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem DPS Builds Guide

In Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, you have a free hand to choose your gear which dictates your class and builds. If you are interested in damage dealing, our Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem DPS Builds will set you on the right path.

As mentioned above, gear dictates your class and the gear helps you level up meaning that the type of gear you choose will result in the strengthening of a certain stat.

Ranged Build Gear
As this is a ranged setup, we will also require some ranged gear. You should opt for items that come with increased projectile and critical damage.

They should also provide critical chance to compliment the perks you’ve taken in the Sentinel and Assassin trees.

Fast attack speed is also something to consider when preparing your loadout. Faster attacks mean more damage per second.

Best bow skills
For our build, the following skills will be very useful.

Mark of Impurity
It marks an enemy, which increases the amount of damage it takes. With the Target Eliminated modifier, your massive critical damage will be huge.

Phantom Blades
Phantom Blades sends out a large projectile toward your enemies. Cut Through the Ether modifier allows you some extra mobility.

Arrows Wail
It provides an area of effect barrage. Arrows Wail is one of your primary damage dealing skills. It’s useful on large groups of enemies, as well as big, slow bosses.

“Avenger” Auto turret
The auto turret is good for killing enemies around as you’re trying to escape. If you select the Self-Destruct Protocol modifier, it will explode on being destroyed, which can help you thin particularly dense mobs of enemies.
