X Weaknesses

Chaos Dungeon Skill Build

As with almost all Chaos Dungeon builds, these are extremely flexible and skills can be swapped out for anything else if you find something more enjoyable than what we have listed. It should be noted that Scrapper AoE isn't great. The range on most skills is very low, and most of the wide range, hard hitting attacks have longer cooldowns. Keep this in mind if you decide to move things around so you're not constantly chugging potions to keep up.


Raid Skill Build

While there's no true rotation for Shock Training Icon Shock Training, there is a very smooth flow to how the class Engraving works. The build is split between three Stamina skills and five Shock skills. The three Stamina skills this playstyle chooses are the three with the lowest cooldown, thus generating the most Shock Meter while your Shock skills are on cooldown. It's also important to note, Scrappers synergy buff is also applied through both Crushing Smite Icon Crushing Smite and Fierce Tiger Strike Icon Fierce Tiger Strike. In ideal situations, keep these skills staggered to maintain full uptime on the raid buff.

Compared to the alternate build, Shock Training Icon Shock Training is the heavy-hitter. This build is much slower, and misses out on some mobility, so it requires a bit more of a coordinated hand to play. Of the five Shock skills we take, four of them deal immense amounts of damage:

  • Death Rattle Icon Death Rattle: Uses all Shock Meter and scales based upon how much you have, capping above 75%. This is the highest damage attack in your kit.
  • Supernova Icon Supernova: Similar to Death Rattle Icon Death Rattle, as it uses quite a bit of Shock Meter, but won't leave you completely dry.
  • Chain Destruction Fist Icon Chain Destruction Fist: Very slow, the cast time on here is long. Be mindful of when you cast this, since it's also a back attack and you'll lose out on a ton of damage if the final hits don't land. Take advantage of Tenacity Icon Tenacity to super armor through push damage.
  • Potent Rising Fist Icon Potent Rising Fist: The only Shock skill we take that comes with forward mobility. We've also placed an Overwhelm Icon Overwhelm on it to provide a great stagger option.

Probably the most versatile skill we take is the last one we'll mention, with Roundup Sweep Icon Roundup Sweep. This should be your best friend. Swift Preparation Icon Swift Preparation provides a decent chance of completely resetting the cooldown on this skill, meaning it can be used repeatedly in most situations. What this does is two things. The first, is it allows us tons of opportunities to proc whatever rune we place on it. In the case of this build, we've equipped a Quick Recharge Icon Quick Recharge, but a Purify Icon Purify can go quite a long way depending on the content you're doing. The second thing to consider is using Roundup Sweep Icon Roundup Sweep as a stagger option. You may notice a really annoying animation lock when using this skill, preventing you from spamming it how you want. You can bypass this by holding down your movement button and spamming the skill. Use this to your advantage during stagger checks, and consider using an Overwhelm Icon Overwhelm if your group is lacking in the stagger department.

The Awakening Skill chosen for Scrapper is Mysterious Art: Blast of Ruination Icon Mysterious Art: Blast of Ruination. Something to be mindful of, there's proximity drop-off on the damage for this Awakening. If you're not touching the bosses hit box you will lose out. You're free to use Undefeated Dragon King Icon Undefeated Dragon King, it's not too much of a damage loss, and let's be honest... it looks awesome!


Shock Training's Playstyle

Even with how slow this build may feel, Shock Training Icon Shock Training Scrapper is quite forgiving. Scrapper boasts one of the highest natural defenses in the entire game, so learning when to push-immune and eat damage is a very real skill you will need to learn to play this class. Due to it's slow nature, don't be afraid to circle around the boss to ensure you hit your back positionals, especially after you've gotten your Relic gear set. Between Engravings, your gear set bonus, and possible party synergy, missing positionals can really lower the damage potential on Shock Scrapper.


Opener Rotation

Shock Training Opener

Rather than a rotation, this build follows a simple priority. Cast Fierce Tiger Strike Icon Fierce Tiger Strike and immediately follow up with Death Rattle Icon Death Rattle. This will put our Shock Meter down to zero, but allows us to apply our Bleed Icon Bleed through Charging Blow Icon Charging Blow and then re-apply Amplified Damage Icon Amplified Damage and continue to rotate through your other Shock skills, priotizing Supernova Icon Supernova second, and Chain Destruction Fist Icon Chain Destruction Fist third. While Potent Rising Fist Icon Potent Rising Fist is a mobility tool, feel free to use it in your regular rotation to maintain uptime on skills and also get rid of excess Shock Meter. Insert filler Roundup Sweep Icon Roundup Sweep casts as you deem necessary, so long as you are sure you won't need it immediately for a counter.
