  1. When I run teams/TF I just declare: "If you want to speed go ahead. Those that don't want to speed hang with me and we'll kill stuff on our way to the objective." 9 times out of 10 the majority of the team will stick with me and there'll be 1 or two that rush ahead. And the reality is that a lot of times the kill team will pretty much clear up to the objective during the time it takes for the 1 or 2 loners to clear the final room. Unless it's a glowie click...
  2. I don't think you are alone. There are plenty of posts along the lines of "looking for build inf not a problem lol" with 0 responses. I ignore the begging posts but I do tend to chime in on those posts where posters put some effort in. What concerns/saddens me is that 1 - there are a lot of new players that post that go straight to begging 2 - they are getting fed some really shitty builds and they are none the wiser
  3. The area you can cover with a 30 degree cone gets bigger if the cone has more range. I took frost breath for early leveling. It recharges faster than ice storm and is much more useful early on. I ended up keeping both on my blaster. It felt better having both, knowing there is always one AoE that I can spam is comforting, even though said AoE needs a little bit of positioning.
  4. Dark. Applying consistent to hit debuff has more value especially against hard targets like AV/GMs. Slows/KD do well against fodder but are pretty ineffective against those harder targets. Dark has has a much more reliable KB/KD power that isn't dependent on tidal stacks, and the heal is immediate. Water's slows and KD can not stop some mobs from reaching you and Dark has tentacles to do just that. I vote Dark.
  5. Not everyone that comes to homecoming begs for a god tier build and PL their way to 50 and then act like they know all there is to know about this game. I haven't seen many posts from the OP asking for God Tier builds. Based on his/her previous posts they are just taking the game in at the base level, not a whole lot of IOs, no optimized builds, etc... It took me almost 2 years on live to get my first 50 and many more to really understand the game. Some people play very casually, I see long time posters that can't even come up with a decent build on their own, others that still thi
  6. I don't necessarily think the OP is talking about this in the context of how they want to play the game to 50 and beyond. Based on his/her other posts they mostly struggle early game, into the 30s. Maybe they give up at that point and start another toon. I can see where they are coming from, not that I agree with them on this "dedicated playstyle." However I have the benefit of being able to fund my builds and I also have the benefit of having a lot of experience with the game. When you are poor and only using DOs you need to invest more slots into powers just to get pr
  7. I started a crab yesterday on a whim, I remember some discussions around the guassian proc doing well in tactics/leadership based on the number of teammates you have and if that applies to the pets, it might be a good place to stick it. Thanks for the analysis on the soulbound build up proc, very insightful. I incorporated that into my build. My experiences playing melee blasters has shown me that S/L and Ranged defense covers 99% of all attacks out there, the SOA have the benefit of upping their Psi def as well so I did that as well. Here's the end result:
  8. You have to take either gloom or dark blast to start, might as well take gloom. Umbral Torrent is better than tenebrous,, it has longer range can be converted into KD if you wish, and carries a to hit debuff component and it's AoE. Thematically it fits as well because projecting a wave that knocks down/back opponents is more in theme for a martial artist than projecting tentacles. Also slots better because FF +recharge proc. I'd also take blackstar. It's like unleashing your inner fury/chi whatever. This is how I would build it based off the original post:
  9. Afterburner became evasive maneuvers, and that you can slot a LOTG 7.5 in.
  10. Look at me in the eyes and tell me you don't want to build this 😶. This Hero build was built using Mids Reborn https://github.com/Reborn-Team/MidsReborn Click this DataLink to open the build! Level 50 Magic Blaster Primary Power Set: Dark Blast Secondary Power Set: Darkness Manipulation Power Pool: Flight Power Pool: Concealment Power Pool: Force of Will Power Pool: Leadership Ancillary Pool: Soul Mastery Hero Profile: Level 1: Gloom -- SprDfnBrr-Acc/Dmg(A), SprDfnBrr-Dmg/Rchg(3), SprDfnBrr-Acc/Dmg/Rchg(3), SprDfnBrr-Acc/Dmg/EndRdx(5), SprDfnBrr-Acc/Dmg/EndRd
  11. I'm not here to stop you or anyone else from having fun. I just want to provide context to new players so they know what they are getting out of that kind of build philosophy. Also, not to be a party pooper but a lot of people build for defense so you are kinda doing that thing that everyone else does. If you really pride yourself on being a unicorn then I think building for + max range can be pretty neat. Put those centrioles to work 😁
  12. Dark/sonic for a goth theme? You sing about darkness and despair and it comes to life If titan weapons had a Guitar option I'd totally make a guitar smasher Emp/sonic could work too for the bard concept, your songs heal and buff and stuff You can also be princess fiona from shrek with Nature/Sonic, minus attracting all the woodland critters.
  13. I prefer Ice Mastery on Dominators, Sleet is really good and Frozen armor takes resist IOs. The benefit of scorpion shield is that you can take it without pre-requisites, but if I had to take a pre-requisite to get an armor, sleet is not a terrible pick.
  14. 5.25% base -to hit from the attacks is pretty low compared to the big boy debuffs out there. I wouldn't prioritize sacrificing damage potential of attacks just to squeeze in up to another 2.7%. A few things to consider about dark blast debuffs: Debuffs need to hit, one missed attack could be clutch in certain situations. Debuffs have finite duration, you need to apply constant pressure, could be harder to manage when you run into adds. Debuffs are subject to purple patch, so they are less effective, and since purple patch affects your hit rate, compound that b
  15. You could drop the fighting pool. If you want to help the team keep leadership, every bit helps even if the values are low on a dominator. You can still keep CJ and speed, and make up for the lost LOTG slot in weave with one in vengeance if you can fit that in. As a dominator you have the luxury of being able to lock everything down so the loss of defense from weave isn't necessarily a deal breaker.
