Weapons to Use
Another weapon you should use is Tractor Cannon. This will apply a 30% health debuff to the enemy you are about to punch.
The way Liar’s Handshake is activated is when using your Arc melee ability or being hit by a melee attack will allow you to follow up with an extremely powerful melee counter-punch that will heal you. For ease of use, let something melee first or melee, dodge, melee.
Assassin’s Cowl works when using charged melee’s. Charged melee final blows grant invisibility and restore a portion of health and shields. Finishers and final blows against more powerful targets increase the duration of the invisibility and the amount of health and shields restored.
Liar’s Handshake will give about 135% more damage on your melee, but Assassin’s Cowl will make it easier to survive. Both are great picks, so choose whichever exotic you feel is better.
Melee Wellmaker will create wells matching your subclass when you get a powered melee final blow. This means if you kill things with combination blow, you’ll get arc elemental wells. These arc wells will give energy back to your abilities, proc Well of Ions, Font of Wisdom, and Elemental Time Dilation.
Well of Ions will increase your melee damage by 30% for 11 seconds each time you pick up an arc elemental well.
Font of Wisdom will increase your intellect stat to 100 for 30 seconds whenever an elemental well matching your subclass is picked up.
Elemental Time Dilation will the extend the duration of Well of Ions and Font of Wisdom. The duration increase varies by base duration and number of mods equipped.
The only mods you really need is Melee Wellmaker and Well of Ions. I just use Font of Wisdom to get my super back easily and Elemental Time Dilation to provide me more time to run around between punching things. You could use whatever mods you think are useful as long as you keep Melee Wellmaker and Well of Ions equipped.
Combination Blow will proc when you kill an enemy with your charged melee. It will trigger health regeneration and increase your melee damage temporarily. Combination Blow stacks up to 3 times and lasts 15 seconds. It refreshes the timer each time you use your charged melee.
Combat Flow will recharge your dodge every time you get a melee kill. This is great to keep Combination Blow going.
The dodge you want to use is Gambler’s Dodge so you can dodge and melee as much as you want.
This build is great for solo lost sectors and nightfalls.
