Control Wizard – Spellstorm Mage Thaumaturge

This is another good build for low item level characters. It can generate a decent amount of damage early and has a good set of encounters that gives the Control Wizard plenty of time to dodge attacks. It works best for mob control but it can also do a decent job against single targets. This build is also decent for solo runs.

Fairly similar to most DPS classes. You’ll want a decent amount of Arm Pen and Crit. Prioritize getting 60% Resistance Ignored and 50% Crit Chance before investing into power.

For defensive stats, I chose to go with Life Steal and HP. Defensive resistance does not work well on this one, so you’ll want as much maximum hp as possible so you will have plenty of opportunities to steal your life back before getting knocked down.

Sigil of the devoted is great for this build so you can keep casting dailies.

Hunter Ranger – Trapper PVE

In my opinion, the Huner Ranger is the most enjoyable class to play in Neverwinter. Of course, this does not mean that it is the best class. It’s not exactly the best at dps nor is it a viable buffer Class, and tanking is definitely out of the question. One other issue with Huner Ranger as a whole, is that the Trapper is the only good path to take

Well, at least, Trappers are fun to play. The path is pure encounter executions. You basically rarely ever use at-wills and dailies. You will always have an encounter cooled-down so you will always be doing something really cool.

Wheel of Elements is very key here. It gives you an instant 30% damage boost as long as you make sure you catch that flame buff. I’ve opted for the Lostmauth set because it is a good cost-effective option, but if you can afford the Underdark artifact set, it will give you better damage.

Dread Enchantment is flat out the best weapon enchantment for Trappers. As previously stated, encounters will be the source of almost all the damage this build dishes out.

For gear stats, try to get some arm pen, at least 60% resistance ignored is good enough. You’ll want to pump out as much crit as you can. 50% is ok, but you can try to aim for 60%. Power pretty easy to obtain in terms of gears, you will always have plenty of this stat from any gear you choose so I would not be too concerned about it. For defensive stats, you will want life-steal and deflect.
