Fire / Ice AoE Build

This build is an exceptionally powerful build to use in early game, enabling you to dish out high amount of AoE damage and plow through squishier enemies. However, this build is relatively weak against enemies with reinforced armor and shields later on in the game. Be sure to carry a powerful gun as your backup.

Ice Storm
(Blast Seal)
Used to priming & crowd control
Burning Orb
(Focus Seal)
Use Charge Shot to detonate multiple targets
Quickening Field
(Support Seal)
Used to shorten the cool down for Ice Storm

The 2 attack Gears in this build are both AoE attacks with multiple charges, enabling large area of suppression.

The multiple charge of the Burning Orb will help you chain your combo even further, while the Quickening Field will reduce your combo cooldown time.
