I have an Egyptian themed character, and wanted to give her powers emulating the ten plagues of Egypt. I have a few ideas, but would like help in constructing a viable build out of this concept.

Things I've considered are as follows.

Blood: ?

Frogs: ?

Lice: ?

Wild Animals: Command Animals

Pestilence: Epidemic (I doubt the Pestilence passive would be viable)

Boils: ?

Hail: Conflagration

Locusts: Locust Swarm

Darkness: Sigils of Radiant Sanctuary

Death of the Firstborn: ?


Any help would be appreciated!

    For Blood you could do Quicksand with red coloring, but that would be redundant with Epidemic.

    If I recall right the Death of the Firstborn was done by an angel, who told those that were faithful to leave goats blood on their doorstep...or something.

    You could use Ascension to signify the angel, what with the wings and such.

    Deliciously nutritious!

    Blood: Devour Essence, you might as well take Supernatural Power too since you kinda have a Infernal theme happening. A fully charged Bite will inflict Bleeding, but DE is a much better Power.

    Frog: Super Jump?

    Boils and Lice: I have no idea. Defile has an Advantage called Plague Bearer that reduces targets resistance to Toxic damage.

    Locust: Venomous Breath has a free advantage that turns it into Locust Breath. Venom Breath and Devour Essence covers your close and mid-range attacks.

    Death of Firstborn: this was performed by the Angel of Death? Why not take Ritual of Radiant Summoning for the angel pet. Take Unbound Ritual or it will disappear when you leave the Circle.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    After much tinkering in game and with the Powerhouse build planner, I've come up with the following build. I colored all of the powers burnt orange to emulate sand, except Devouring Essence which is red to emulate blood and conflagration which is the default color.

    How does this look? At level 21 right now and it feels "okay." Strong offense, weak defense. Will Radiant Sanctuary help me out there?
