Hello everyone.

-Advertisement-

After warlock holocaust(mod6) neverwinter online had almost no temptation warlocks until mod 10. But even now there are no proper guides/builds for Temptation HB.
So I decide to write my own current HB Temptation build.

Now before starting reading and analyzing this build. I want to clear couple stuffs.

1) I am member of guild which have def 5k and arp 4.8k boons so I have more freedom to gear up for offensive. However, in this guide/build I will not use these feats. And all stats which I share here, are without guild boons.
2) This build is more for party runs, but good solo too. For more offensive build I would take couple fury feats over current damnation.
3) its cheap when come building up. Its not build around top end gear sets, legendary mounts and full epic insignias. So mainstream players can easily build up it without requirement of high investments. Or come up with own gear sets builds and make it even better than mine.
4) This build is sub healer, sub buffer, sub debuffer. Thats mean u can replace heal DC, OP only if remaining party is good. If there are bunch of hothead suckers, or udergeared ones, then no way u keep them alive.
5) my warlock is old, so i have more power points spent for encounters, daily powers, at wills and class features..
So I recommend calculate your warlock possible builds in preview/test server. :)

Feats:

These feats I picked to make warlock able not only be good in party but also good solo to.
For more aggressive build i would not pick feats from damnation tree. But since I focusing on party so I picked them.
Why I don’t picked Soul Breaker, Hellish Condemnation, Eldritch Momentum and Compounded Soul feats from temp tree?
Well Soul breaker – restore AP, in old mod 4 or mod 5 it would be good one. But now, everyone regenerating AP fast enough, So its pointless to keep this feat.
Hellish Condemnation – at first its look nice, but, hellish rebuke is not AoE at will like CW’s master of flame – Scorching Burst. So debuffing only single target is kinda waste of points.
Eldritch Momentum – Stamina regeneration is cool, but since Pillar of Power require more sit inside its effect area. Simply kill any reason to use this feat at all.
Compounded Soul – mostly because its work on chance, and give up to 5%. your Warlock’s Max HP as Temporary Hit Points. Which I think is HAMSTER.

Gear:

Spoiler

Since my current Guild have Def and arp boons, I build up my gear set around them. So more focused on crit, and power. While Arp leaved for guild boon..
Next, my current weapons dps sucks. But they provide life steal rates while new artifact weapon sets do not. Plus I use charisma belt to increase life steal rates and CHA. Instead making artifact set for dps. And more life steal = more higher chance to life steal = more healing.

Gear set is important but, no need making direct copy, anyone can come up with own gear build. Maybe someone increase life steal factors via artifacts, maybe through Guild boon, or companion/mounts insignias and so one.
So I don’t call my current gear set strong one.. But anyone can easily get them. :)

Could collect set for healing, but I need more life steal and dps. After all warlock is not DC or OP :)

Mounts + insignia bonuses:

Companions: be mind that tank is my main active, medic is only when party have strong tank. and other companions I don;t use at all.(too lazy to replace them)
