  1. To answer your question: the 'glass canon' style of gameplay can work in many use-cases, but is limited to very controlled circumstances. Plant is indeed a very powerful primary, and it might rank #2 after Mind. Why I would rank Plant after Mind: Most of the power of Plant comes from Seeds of Confusion. So, any group that resists Seeds, like Nemesis, is going to heavily neuter Plant's effectiveness. Plant lacks a way to handle multiple large groups of enemies that are positioned closed to each other, where Seeds is able to hit one group but not adjacent groups. Mind is able to put multiple groups to sleep for a long time, all without aggro, through using Mass Hypnosis. Plant lacks a way to handle multiple AVs simultaneously. Mind can do that using Mesmerize. It's for these reasons that Mind is able to solo Task Forces. Back in the day, there were videos of people soloing task forces with Mind, without Incarnate powers. I don't know how much the game has changed, and I'm not familiar with some of the 'newer' primaries like Dark. Here is how I would rank the primaries, again in terms of pure survivability. Please take this with more than a few grains of salt: 1. Mind 2. A close ranking amongst: Earth, Electric, Dark, Plant 3. Fire 4. Gravity 9001. Ice
  2. Back in the 'Before Times', I had a Mind/Fire perma-dom that was one of my favorite characters. He was a god. He might have been able to sub for Hamidon, had Hamidon been required to stay at home due to social isolation constraints. His power was just sick, and was a perversion of gameplay mechanics. The stunts that he was able to pull off was due to the fact that perma domination Mind is able to shut down both multiple AVs and multiple large groups alike. He didn't have the best DPS, but victory was achieved through out-surviving opponents -- I just waited for them to die of either old age or boredom. I didn't even build him for defense, I just leveraged all of the double mag controls in Mind. Well, it's been a long time, and my memory of both game mechanics and how each of the Dominator primaries work has faded. So, I'd like to ask the community: How do each of the Dominator primaries rank in terms of providing surivivablity? Assuming: Perma-domination Either while soloing -or- while on extraordinarily well coordinated team (i.e., one obeying commands from you). When paired with the most synergistic secondary for that primary. No consideration is given to DPS or speed. The best IO layout for that primary. Survivability for a broad range of types of encounters in the game, and not just contrived ones that are designed for the specific primary/secondary combo. Thanks in advance! Edit: From another forum post: Here is how I would rank the primaries, again in terms of pure survivability. Please take this with more than a few grains of salt: 1. Mind 2. A close ranking amongst: Earth, Electric, Dark, Plant 3. Fire 4. Gravity 9001. Ice
