Best builds for Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors
The Hound Master class is unique as it can focus on summoning units to draw enemy attention away from you. It is rather frail and slow but can deal massive damage over a wide area and receive additional healing. Here are our recommendations for the best builds for the Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors.
Best skills for Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors
The most important skills to pick up as the Hound Master are Build Ballista and Chaos Golem. These summons provide incredible damage and can pull enemies away from you. After these, we recommend selecting skills from the Frontal, Bomb, and Missile categories. Here are the best skills for the Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors.
- Vicious Strikes
- Build Ballista
- Chaos Golem
- Napalm Blast
- Bomb Barrage
- Cluster Bomb
- Power Blast
- Frag Shot
- Shrapnel Bomb
- Explosive Shot
After acquiring Build Ballistas and Chaos Golem, we highly recommend selecting any subsequent skills that upgrade these abilities. This turns these two summon skills into powerful destructive forces. You can also select Bloodlust to increase your own stats and those of your summons.
We suggest choosing a mix of bomb and frontal skills for damaging skills. This lets you strike directly in front of you and cover a wide area, striking multiple foes. Grabbing the passive skills listed above are also a great idea and two skills you should prioritize learning.
Best stats for Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors
The Hound Master is a slow and frail character but has the unique advantage of starting the match with summoned creatures. These allow you to divert enemy attention and focus on dealing massive damage. Here are the best stats we recommend focusing on for the Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors.
- Critical Chance
- Critical Damage Modifier
- Area Modifier
- Cast Frequency
- Multicast Chance
- Movement Speed
Focusing on Critical Chance, Critical Damage Modifier, Cast Frequency, and Multicast Chance allows the Hound Master to deal absolute damage. It also affects your summons, letting you place down more of them quicker. This increases damage and further distraction, letting you live longer.
Best weapon for Hound Master in Soulstone Survivors
To be blunt, neither of the Hound Master's weapons is very good, but we suggest going with the Riflemen's Vengeance for the bonuses. We do suggest replacing the Buckshot skill gained from the weapon with something better, but the Fragility it applies can be effective if you stack it with other debuffs.
The Rusted Blaster is simply not good, and neither is its Mortar Shot ability. We recommend replacing this skill as soon as possible, as many are better than this starting skill.
