Mod 15 hit TRs pretty hard, between nerfs and reworks. But since some of us still use their TR, let's see how we can get the most out of it.
Namely, let's talk about the paragon trees: Saboteur, Scoundrel and Executioner.
Some talents got reworked, other moved in other trees, and to be fair I don't know what Paragon tree is good for what anymore.
Executioner, my go-to build with his sweet Shadow of Demise, now has 3 talents that proc upon killing something. It would look like the flavour now is "paragon path that works best when you keep killing stuff". And Shadow of Demise. You know, like we have time to make it proc when melting the mobs we're EXECUTing.
Saboteur: never played it, so I can't say anything about how it performs. Lots of CD reduction and permastealth, that's for sure.
Scoundrel: another one I've never played, but looking at the talent tree I can see lots of personal dmg buffs. The Skullcracker capstone also makes it so that your attacks hit your target like it was controlled, which should proc the +20% damage on controlled targets talent (note the "should" here). Still don't know about its performance tho.
I don't feel like cheating on my Shadow of Demise for single target, but if you've ever seen that "Distracted Boyfriend" meme ( https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/distracted-boyfriend
) , well, you know how I feel about Scoundrel and Saboteur coming from Executioner.
So, what do you think the Paragon trees' roles are? Depending on the choice of talents (single target vs trash), I can think of a few roles/loadouts:
Solo low gear
Solo good gear
Mobs low gear, bad party
Mobs good gear, bad party
Mobs low gear, good party
Mobs good gear, good party
Boss (no adds) low gear, bad party
Boss (no adds) good gear, bad party
Boss (no adds) low gear, good party
Boss (no adds) good gear, good party
Boss (with adds) low gear, bad party
Boss (with adds) good gear, bad party
Boss (with adds) low gear, good party
Boss (with adds) good gear, good party
Which Paragon tree do you think is best for each role, according to your experience with mod 15 so far?
