Character Guides - Tara - Onslaught/Conquest/Heist preset - May 30, 2020
Planetshatter - Tara creates an Earthquake that deals damage over time and adds 16 earthen spikes that also deal damage.
Tara's Onslaught/Conquest/Heist preset is a straightforward combat build. Tara can use Chasm to damage approaching enemies, and has a Backhand -> Kill Chop combo that does good damage and Stun. Tara's basic attack comes out fairly quickly and deals good damage to a decent area.
Tara's main disadvantage is that she has few alternatives of dealing with enemies outside of close range combat. Chasm is good for one hit on approach, and Planetshatter gives her some leg room, but her Extreme gains are slow, forcing her to fight up close, even when the enemy has many status ailments to inflict up close. Tara has above average HP, but cannot take as many hits as her HP implies.
With Tara's moveset, it is best to prioritize dodge cancelling. She hits a decent area with good speed and damage using her basic attacks, and mastery over dodge cancels can get her very far in these modes. When Planetshatter is out, try to lead enemies through as many spikes as possible to make the most of her Extreme.
