This is a fantastic core-friendly LI build that features extremely high self healing and defense. It has very low damage but is easy to play and has extremely high sustain.

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 strong LI build that is core-friendly and does enough damage to complete HOT/POF hero points even when solo with mostly just auto-attacks and the occasional button press. Decent for roaming with good area damage thanks to hammer symbol and both active and passive allied healing.
