Nea Builds

Hello, and to all who are able to help, thanks much.

I'm leveling my Nea up to hopefully move onto prestiging her, however, I can't find the proper build for me.

I've played many different playstyles, and don't mind any, I've just had a hard time finding any good builds, so I decided to head to the forums for some advice!

If anyone can help, what are some builds, or even singular perks that you think are a must-have?

Thanks much.

    The "typical build" that most survivor use is:

    Self Care, Adrenaline, Exhaustion Perk and a perk of their choosing (sometimes Urban Evasion or We'll Make It.

    My build is:

    a ) Autodidact, Bond, Adrenaline, Balanced Landing

    b ) Q&Q, Head On, Bond, Random Perk (probly Adrenaline)

    Thanks so much, I'll definitely work on getting that put together when I have the chance.

    You don't need a build when you have this.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,126

    What you need my friend is Bond, Diversion, OoO and We’re gonna farm forever.

    Ok but being serious now.

    For stealth plunderers instinct, urban evasion, premonition and iron will.

    My usual non stealth build-Dead hard, borrowed time, plunderers instinct and prove thy self.

    I'd recommend bond, balanced landing, Adrenaline and self care. Of course self care is in a weird position so possibly borrowed time in its place.

    Balanced landing, Adrenaline, Resilience and Iron will. Just genrush.

    My run of the mill build for nea is self care, Urban evasion, iron will, and balanced landing. Basic set up but I gotten thru many games with it, both solo and swf. I always trade balanced landing for any perk that i want to play.

    I suggest that you make a three perk build so you leave room for any perk you want to run

    Sloppy butcher, bbq and chili, unnerving presence, and ruin.

    Meta build, Adrenalin- Unbreakable- Decisive Strike- Dead hard

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 2,907

    Iron Will, Quick and Quiet, Adrenaline, with last slot Alert, Balanced Landing, Deliverance, Diversion, Urban Evasion is really good.

  • dbd_noobdbd_noob Member Posts: 194

    I have a lot of fun with this new build: Q&Q, head on, deliverance and DS.

    It is not a build to win a lot, but it is fun as hell to me.

    My tryhard build is: SC, BL, Adren, Unbreakable/BT

  • AngryFluffyAngryFluffy Member Posts: 418

    On Nea I run Adrenaline, Decisive Strike, Balanced Landing and Iron will or Self care.

    Balanced Landing is the one perk that is most important for me. Can't live without.

    Guys dont give him useless perks like Plunderers and Diversion.... He probably wants to survive. For a new player i'd recommend like: Urban, Self Care, any Exhaustion perk and most importantly(!!!) Windows of Opportunity

    I like doing kobe builds. Adren, Exhaustion Perk, Slippery Meat, Up the Ante, Salty Lips.
