Basic Warlock Soulweaver Info

Below is all the basic information for the Soulweaver, from race choices to stats.

Other Warlock Builds

Best Soulweaver Races

What race you play doesn’t play a huge role, but will give you a small boost. Generally, I would advise you to play a race that you enjoy.

Neverwinter Race
  1. Aasimar – 2% bonus Power, Outgoing Healing, Defense and Hit Points. – +2 to any two stats – 2% bonus Hit Points to party members.
  2. Metallic Ancestry Dragonborn – Recieve 5% more healing – +2 to Any two stats – 3% Critical Strike – 3% Power
  3. Dragonborn Recieve 5% more healing – +2 to Any two stats – 3% Critical Strike – 3% Power
  4. Human – 1% Bonus to all ratings – +3 to any Ability Score
  5. Wood Elf – 5% Critical Strike – +2 Dex and +2 Int or Wis – 20% Resistance to Slow

Soulweaver Ability Score Priority

Put all your available Ability Scores into Wisdom and Charisma.

Soulweaver Stat / Rating Priority

The Combat Rework introduced major changes to how stats and item level work, for more info see the official post.

Your cap for each stat is based on your item level. To cap a stat, the numbers of the stat need to be equal to or higher than your item level.

If your stat number is higher than your item level, you are wasting stats and should try to allocate stats differently.

For every 1000 points, a stat is lower than your item level you lose 1% in that stat.

You won’t be able to easily cap all stats, but capping your power is quite easy.

As a healer Outgoing Healing is your most important stat.

Offensive Stats

  1. Power (90%)
  2. Combat Advantage (90%)
  3. Critical Strike (90%)
  4. Critical Severity (90%)
  5. Accuracy (90%)

Defensive Stats

  1. Defense (90%)
  2. Deflection (90%)
  3. Critical Avoidance (90%)
  4. Awareness (90%)
  5. Health (90%)

Can you update this build please

Armored Lightning

Monday 14th of September 2020

Well i think this needs updated because all the names for abilities and powers are wrong. And now that i read to do dex and int for more power. I will have to redo all of my guildmates stuff. I think i will just do my own guide. I have been using these guides for my barb. Paladin. So i might relook at my stuff. I think i can do better

yeah uhm,Bad idea for putting all avail score points in Con and Wisdom and not int + dex instead...as the damage is super low that is done them and the fights take one hell of a long time as SW,I followed your guide and did exactly to find out that the dmg I was doing to the mobs were mega low so I re rolled and put all of my avail score pts into int and dex only this time of round and noticed a huge freaking change with how much is done to them so far so you need to edit this a bit more as you clearly forget that we do have magic damage attacks as well and not just heals to toss here and there when/if needed and also a great race to go with as a SW warlock is the Gith for CA(which) you get 5K as a bonus which helps a ton against boss fights that are usually meant for a grp in dungeons,I ran the whole undermountain quest line and zones and nearly gotten owned while following with this guide and your input of placing scores in con and wisdom instead

Pretty sure this a guide for the healing warlock, not the damage warlock so that might be why the stats aren't what you're expecting them.

I can totally understand Wis, but why Con? I've read somewhere that Con is an awful stat overall, wouldnt Dex be better? Or am I really missing something here? Also, why no race with the aforementioned stats (wis, con). These races look good on the DPS path (int, dex), or again, am i missing anything here?

Kyle

when and if you a role another warlock or a friend does and they want to know what to place all avail scores in,just do what I am doing and going right training them into int/dex only since these 2 stats are extremly important to have beside HP But if wanna stay alive longer as a SW lock...kite the mobs around even the bosses and if need to pop a heal off or 2 and carry 99 health pots just incase and use them while our bar refills for next round of healing etc.
