Outriders: How to Choose a Path (& How They Work)

Outriders: How to Choose a Path (& How They Work) 

For each of the four classes open to Outriders, which is the best for them, focused on elementary and physical damage?

Outriders have a wide variety of classes to choose from, as well as even more variety after they’ve made their choice. There is no perfect answer for any player between the Devastator, Pyromancer, Technomancer, and trickster. A person’s character would need to take a different base path depending on their preferred playstyle.

In addition to the combat style that fits them most, each route offers certain supernatural talent. However, within the three subclasses, each path can be adjusted further. Any direction to be learned even more than the fundamental knowledge provided to the players is the range in which the class fights well and for what it works.

Why should Outriders Players choose The Devastator?

At first glance, the Devastator appears to be a standard tank build. Although it can withstand a lot of damage and hold its ground, players will also be able to control the earth beneath them and use gravity to their benefit. This class, like all others, has eight abilities that players can gain through the course of their game, starting with one and upgrading to more as they play. Aside from that, the class has three major skill trees, each of which is divided into subclasses.

Devastator’s starting traits are as follows: +24% health advantage per enemy defeated within close range, +25% max health bonus, and +30% armor bonus.

Skill Tree: Vanquisher – (Close Range Combat and Heavy Damage Dealer)

Skill Tree: Warden – (Heavy Tank and Support)

Skill Tree: Seismic Shifter – (Mid to Long Range DOT)

Devastator Abilities:

1Gravity LeapA handy jump for avoiding attacks and diving into the fray to defend comrades. On impact, this hop also produces a shockwave.

4Endless MassSummons an obelisk that induces gravity in the form of a black hole, drawing in and damaging nearby opponents.

6GolemFor a limited time, this seismic ability gives the player an additional sheet of armor torn from the earth.
7TremorAn AOE centered on the player causes the ground to constantly burst and quake. This will knock down opponents and hold them away from the player for a short time.
8Boulder DashAnother AOE that is done at the end of a dash revolves around the character.

Why Should Outriders Players choose Pyromancer?

Pyromancer Outriders Yehiweb

The Pyromancer is by far the heaviest damage dealer, dealing mostly fire and lava damage from a mid-range. This would be the closest thing to a Warlock or Spellsword type class but isn’t nearly as dangerous as a glass cannon. Its abilities are primarily based on doing damage through AOE and DOT, with some healing thrown in for good measure.

Pyromancer starting traits are as follows: +15% bonus to max health, +10% bonus to ability power, skills can mark damaged enemies for 15 seconds. Killing these marked enemies gives +24% healing to the player.

Skill Tree: Ashbreaker – (Increased Power Damage and Marked Kills focus)

The Technomancer is the most versatile class, serving as both a support sniper and a long-range weapon specialist. Although not as “magical” as the other classes, this path requires the player to use scrap metal to shape and craft larger standing weapons on battlefields. The Technomancer, as a support class, has some of the strongest healing powers of the four levels.

Technomancer’s starting traits as follows: +7.5% Long Range Weapon Damage, +15% Life Leech, and +150% Weapon Life Leech

This path is very similar to a rogue playstyle, similar to how the class sounds. Close-range combat and teleportation are the Trickster’s specialties. They are fast on their feet and much quicker when it comes to leaping into and out of combat.

Trickster’s starting traits as follows: Damage Protection from active Shields is increased by 15%, Total Health Heal is increased by 20%, and Shield Gain is increased by 12% for enemies that die in near range.
