In spite of the fact that all the six classes can be a DPS build, their competence are different. And as we can see from many forums and game chat channels , the stalker class is said to be an awful one as DPS for it almost has no damage potential. That’s not true though. A stalker can also deal enormous damage if you are really proficient with it. Via some adjustment you are able to maximize your stalker damage potential.
First have a clear idea of the eight skills and make best use of them.
Shred: though it is not actually a DPS skill, it requires no suit power. Using it, you don’t have to worry about your suit power; on the contrary, it allows to generate 2 suit power every 1s and at tier 4 and 8 it pierces 60% of an opponent’s armor.
Impale: a lethal skill in most PvE environments. Use it at tier 8 to deal massive damage when stealthed or behind an enemy and it can pierce 30% of his armor. It costs little suit power but refunds 12 when a foe is killed by it. Better use it when a foe is almost dead.
Ruin: an instant damage skill that has a damage over time for 5s. At tier 8 it can disable the foes’ shield for 6s. Good damage effect when the foe has less than 50% shield.
Punish: use it with the right gear and AMPs so that you can hit often and make use if it or it can only be used when you have landed a Critical Hit. It restores 30 suit power.
Stagger: great at stop foes from running away or interrupting them to continue hurting them for it destroys 1 Interrupt Armor, stuns five foes for 2.5s and deals physical damage to them.
Pounge: you will leap forward your opponent and snare them when landing, during which you can gain quick buff.
Tactical Retreat: mostly used for escape, especially when using Agile Skin at the same time.
Collapse: incredibly powerful from a team perspective. Amazing in PvP. It pulls the enemies towards you while destroying a n Interrupt Armor.
Then most of the tier points should be spent on Shred and Impale, the two skills in the assault tree. The remaining points are spend on Ruin, which can ensure your overloading your foes’ shield. AMPs, too, should be mostly spent on the Assault and Hybrid A/S trees.
