What Is LI?

LI stands for "Low-Intensity". LI builds are a class of builds that work to slow the game down drastically by using passive defense and builds that require very low input to function. These builds are designed primarily for players that have disabilities that may prevent them from playing higher intensity builds, though they are here for any player who wishes to play them.

LI builds function quite well on their own and are created to be equivalent to our General or Roaming build section. They typically do not output especially high DPS and focus on gear with passive defense, like Soldier stat icon.png Soldier and Dire stat icon.png Dire .

A good build for open-world. Great sustain but damage is relatively low. Permanent stability is so helpful in the boss fights like the Mark-II golem.

A valid option for LI; the passive CC immunity is quite powerful
