The Best Devastator Build

All of the above-mentioned skills and abilities get unlocked after further progression in the game. You may use any combination of these skills that you may find available at your level in the game or seem the most effective for you. But if you have unlocked all of them, then this is the most effective and useful combination of skills for the Devastator class according to our choice.

  1. Reflect Bullets: This creates a barrier around that captures all enemy projectiles and accumulates oncoming damage. After 10 seconds of activation of this skill, the accumulated damage is reflected back to enemies in front of the player. This barrier also protects against melee attacks by reflecting some of the damage back. This ability has a 22s CD. (Skill type: Protection)
  2. Tremor: This creates a series of explosions around you. Each of these explosions deals damage and drains Health from enemies within a medium radius around you. This ability has a 22s CD. (Skill type: Seismic)
  3. Boulderdash: On using this ability, your character will charge forward to Interrupt all enemies in your path and deal major damage to them. At the end of the Boulderdash charge, your character will smash the ground and, once again, deal damage to all enemies within a small radius around you. This also has a 22s CD. (Skill type: Kinetic, Interrupt)
