This Wind Stalker Erika, Dex Stacker Season Starter Guide gives you all the information you need to start your Cube of Rapacity journey with Torchlight Infinite's most cat-like character. Erika was inspired by Rogue and Assassin archetypes in other games so she's extremely fast and built around a hit-and-run playstyle. Stat stacking is one of the best ways to get your damage up to par early in a season, because you can craft most of your gear without needing many Legendary items.
While optimized for the start of the season, you can continue to min-max the gear to take on greater challenges. Erika's mechanics combine damage and mobility letting her scale incredibly well. But you need to be good at avoiding boss abilities to take on all content. Thunder Slash offers massive single target damage by converting Steep Strike chance into Multistrike which cause Erika to deal more damage.
All of Erika's core mechanics are built around Multistrike, so your damage is quite bursty. Hot Pursuit and Cat's Punches greatly improve Multistrike damage. Erika also offers ways to preserve your Multistrike Count when moving. To do optimal damage you need to manage your Cat's Agility and Stalker stacks correctly.
This build was developed during Season 2 and has only grown stronger.
Season 3 added the Statue of the new God and Divinity Slates, granting the build even more power. Infinity's removal and replacement with a Legendary Divinity Slate of near identical function frees up the belt slot. The crafting overhaul has done little to this build comparative to the power offered by the Statue of the New God.
