  1. I like the fall on movement, but 20 seconds is overkill. Just a couple is enough to queue your next TP.
  2. This is a terribly flawed argument, much like your opening post. Let's looks at why this particular argument is terrible at best, or disingenuous at worst. Let's take the resistance example. Many ATs cap res out at 75%. And only 2 cap out at 90%. If we're being generous to the case you're trying to make and looked at 90% res caps as our baseline, then you're talking about a pool power that gets you 77.78% percent of the way to a cap. Hasten, by comparison, only gets you 17.5% of the way to a cap (recharge cap of 400%). So your example is already miles ahead of Hasten. If you wanted a pool power that was comparable in terms of how it boosts resistance like Hasten boosts recharge, then it would need to increase resists by 15.75%. Oh wait, Tough increases S/L by 20%. Hasten doesn't seem so crazy as your example, does it? You're also leaving out the cost of having Hasten. I may have perma-Hasten on *some* of my builds, but I only do so with builds that can afford the recurring endurance crash. That's not lots of builds. In my opnion, Hasten is a costly power that can really put you in a pinch if it crashes at the wrong time. Not to mention, you're burning through endurance way faster with it continuously. Then there's the issue of locking yourself into a power pool that might costs you other perks your build could need. This is why your opening post failed to make a compelling argument at all. You've only address the one good part of Hasten while conveniently ignoring its costs. Don't wave the flag of being "reasonable" if you're going to cherry pick the facts.
  3. Can't seem to open the build for some reason.
  4. Wise fwom your gwave! Yes, I'm necro'ing. But I was looking for input on the same combo so figured I should respond here. What exactly was the goal of your build? Just some higher resistance? This is what I've been going with and I've been enjoying it. Great recharge, higher resistance, low 40s Melee defense, and decent endurance management with a proc in Dark Regen. Throw Ageless on top of it, and endurance isn't an issue at all. Open to any suggestions on it, of course.

  5. As someone that resisted changing away from Rad/Fire/Pyre, I can tell you that Rad/Fire/Mu is definitely faster. I ate plenty of crow once I gave it a try. The four AoE's (Ball Lightning, Burn, Elec Fences and Atom Smasher – cycled in that order) on a high perma Hasten build turn out way more DPS.
  6. Now that I think about it, Ice Slick should also have the sound effect changed to a slide whistle.
  7. I could be wrong, but I don't remember it always being that way. I think it was changed at some point.
  8. Its arranged that way in Mids so the slotting can fit. In game you can place slots however you like during a respec. You can't six-slot a lvl 50 power in mids.
  9. Oh! Now that's good to know. I was weighing the benefits/costs of trying to get some set bonuses in my frankenslotting for DR. The only thing holding me back was that it has 18% recharge enhancement. Don't have to worry about it now. 😄
  10. Currently the build has 58.75% global recharge. Hoping that's enough.
  11. Thank you! Definitely going to avoid putting recharge in there then.
  12. I was having a hard time finding the words to express this, but you've captured it. DR is punished for its overkill. What's more, in drawn out AV or boss fights, its endurance cost will prevent you from surviving the fight. Considering the prevalence of Energy damage bosses and AVs can have, DA's mitigation won't be enough for single target DR heals to do the job needed. Especially if you don't have the endurance for it during a prolonged battle. This kind of balance adjustment would be a great answer.
  13. Dual Bananas/Ice Manipulation Blasters!
  14. Ah! I see now. Thanks for the clarification. From what I recall, PPMs are calculated by recharge time of the power with any enhancements to recharge slotted being part of that calculation. However, global recharge is not. Would anyone know the probability of ToE firing on any given activation so long as no recharge is enchanced? With a 3.5 PPM and a 30 recharge base, I would think it would fire pretty much nearly all the time.
