Gravity Training Destroyer Build Guide for PvE
This is one of the most enjoyable builds in the game - you essentially become nearly invincible and bonk your enemies on the head with a massive hammer until they die. That's why it's called the Bonk Bonk Build!
The premise is simple: boosts the damage of your Hypergravity Skill (Z). You want to charge your Identity meter as fast as possible and smash people on the head. This build is also more forgiving of mistakes than the more meta build.
If you'd rather dish out massive bursts of damage, check out the Rage Hammer build.
Max out your Purple Skills with as much points as possible for your level. You want at 10 for the tripod, and then any points you can add to the Blue Skills in the fashion described above are a bonus.

The requirements for using these skills aren't as stringent as the build, so you have more freedom to spend cores faster to get to Hypergravity. However, the cost of entering Hypergravity at a bad time is severely punishing, so make sure you understand what the boss is about to do, something you can easily plan for in Legion Raids.
