Rampage Decoration
Build Merits Powder Mantle with a blast weapon is an explosive nightmare! Maxing this skill out is important to get the blast aura as quickly as possible. Just wait for it to turn blue then attack for some eruptive damage! While waiting, get those extra blast damage in with Teostra Soul equipped.
However, keep in mind that this build also runs the Dereliction skill. If you get hit while having the red blast aura from the Powder Mantle skill, it will damage you and the monster that hit you (as long as they're close-ranged). Always keep an eye on your health!
Teostra Blessing is easy to incorporate in this blast build as the Flamescale Jewel is only a level one decoration. Slotting in two will increase your blast buildup by 10%, making it easier to proc those explosive hits!
Another skill included in this build is the Buildup Boost skill. At level one, it increases your attack power by 10% while proccing blast. With the Teostra Blessing skill making it easier to build up this ailment, this will provide the much needed damage boost for your hunts.
This build assumes that no Armor Augmentations have been made.
