A very potent LI build that requires almost no input and can even solo strong enemies such as the Champion Mushroom Queen.

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 .

This build provides very high barrier while being easy to use and providing some DPS. Rather than breaking this build's usage into different sections like Damage and Defense, it's better to explain how they all work in tandem.

  • Your primary goal with this build is to keep your minions alive and to stay close enough to them for them to proc your lfiesteal aura.
  • To do this, you need to use off cooldown, while providing healing and barrier to your minions with your shade skills. will both contribute to CC and provide an incredibly large heal to your minions if is traited.
  • If not using , you can instead rely on for barrier on your minions. Your shades will also provide some barrier to any allies in the area when you place them.

To play this build simply use your CC skills to break bars or CC mobs (listed below) while ensuring your minions stay alive through the barrier and healing above.

Great build, very relaxing and able to solo pretty much everything.

One of the most powerful builds that can safely wade through almost all challenges. Great for an older player like me.

The damage is very poor and you won't be able to kill enemies with health regeneration, but that being said this is a great LI build. While fights take a long time to finish, you will eventually clear most content without trouble, and most importantly: with barely any buttons pressed. Scourge buffs the survival rate of the minions (and yourself) even more than core necro/reaper and is a great synergy. I will go as far as to say that in most open world encounters, this build is practically unkillable.

As a disabled player, who suffered a TBI some time ago and these days my brain is just too slow for most gaming. This growing movement of TI builds are amazing!

An excellent build for an older, slower player. Great sustainability but still packing a powerful punch and very easy to play.

An incredibly strong LI Build that's capable of solo content with just a handful of button presses.
