I see alot of questions about SRs in general and there are alot of misconceptions about the class b/c its really not played much outside of being used as an Baubas Caves or OW15 CM farmer.
I am an older gamer in real life with some pretty beat up hands, so the AA playstyle is really comfortable to me, I have played as an QS in the early days of founder’s early access using a grand cross, a meme chaplain inquisitor before the nerf to froster lord cards when you could just freeze the world, and finally as an SR which has been my favorite.
With the new Goddess Saint Oasis Armor set and the current Renovate Trigger and some investment a pure Limacon based AA SR is back and pretty formidable in endgame/episode 12 content.
To prepare for the changes im going back to a more physical raw damage build as opposed to additional damage. I am running SR/Enchanter/Sheriff, I did try Rangda aswell to make sure before deciding and this did feel like the best overall damage for most scenarios outside of pure bossing, in which case you would just swap a circle for Linker.
The armors would just be your random ichor of choice and 4 Courages, linking 1 to show;
My cards below are pretty static, the one thing I change is the legend card, if field farming I run Helga b/c the build is an SP vampire, if bossing, bernice etc I will switch to Marnox or Panto etc.
Assister wise I use 2 setups, the 1st is a general all purpose PVE setup;
and then this is what i use for Boruta to help reduce the damage from the meteors and bombs;
As ive said previously its a very large investment and the majority of other classes can do the same thing with less then 1/4th the cost but if you are looking for a comfy AA SR, this should give you a better idea of how to gear for episode 12 content.
The class circles can vary, I have settled on SR/Enchanter/Sheriff but if your looking for a pure bosser you will want to get Linker in there, thaum and corsair are soon to be outdated with the removal of silver from fields so I wont mention those going forward.
