  1. You really want Freeze Ray. Even ignoring the hold, it's your highest DPA and Damage per Cycle attack. Swapping any of Ice Bolt, Ice Blast, or Bitter Freeze Ray for it would be an upgrade, and just swapping it in for one of your pool powers would also work. I'd put at least one more slot in Hasten, maybe 2. You can run alright with two 50+5s, but until then I'd go with 3 total. I'm trying to decide on an Epic pool for my Ice/Kin, I'm curious how well you like Dark, and what sort of tricks you have for it. It looked like it might overlap a lot with self-only versions
  2. One thing I didn't see mentioned: Sniper Shot on Homecoming gives a 10s, 50% range buff. So Boost Range + Sniper Rife is 275+ range, but then all your cones are 200+% range. I only noticed this late on my AR/Plant, and was thinking of rolling AR/Nrg just to try to play this to hilt.
  3. Thanks. I ended up respeccing through a bunch of them for my last few levels. I basically gave up on the APP pets after a few rounds. 😞 Stone shouldn't be good, but I'm a sucker for Sleeps and feeling like a controller. A 30' radius sleep is fun for ranged stragglers while you pummel everything in 10'. I'm trying Stalagmites with all the procs, but it still doesn't really feel like a great AoE. I wanted to like Quicksand, but I think I've going to favor the Hold for stragglers. I really wish all the -DEF powers too Defense Debuff IOs. Soul is solid. I gave up on
  4. Let's talk about Shield Charge! How are you slotting it? Procs? Sets? Range? What are you using it for? Do you use it on CD, save it from pack to pack, or save it for a rainy day? Do you use it to move in, or wait so that Against all Odds stacks come up? Is it worth getting a second lower powered copy from the Leaping Pool? I've got Force feedback and Fury of the Gladiator proc slotted, since the CD is long enough to max proc chance. I've currently just got the non-Recharge Scirocco's slotted, but that's more of a placeholder. With my Global and
  5. Awesome! Thanks. I really like the "force a copy" link into Google Sheets/Docs, too. I'm going to start using that. 🙂
  6. Just having the 107.1 and 71.75 as a note on that proc page would help people plan/compare I think. If we have the data for other levels, that would be great, but the level 50 values are enough.
  7. Awesome, looks great! I was just throwing together a basic PPM spreadsheet to point people to. It would be cool if you could add info on the damage proc amount for each type/level ( or just level 30 and level 50?) so people can compare proc damage vs damage enhancements.
  8. Thanks Heraclea, that has some good stuff in it. Marcus, I'm less concerned about "which is better" and more about "how do I get better." I assume Shield Defense can do the job, but knowing your enemies seems like it can make a huge difference for Defense tanks. And just getting DDR doesn't replace that.
  9. I'm Shield Defense, for what it's worth. Everyone's mentioning DDR as protection for Defense tanks, but it doesn't really do anything against massive To Hit buffs from enemies, right? Even at 90% DDR, Super Reflexes is going to keel over to a Vengeance-d up pack of Nemesis without knowing what to avoid.
  10. Thanks. It definitely seems like an issue with Defense tanks. I would have thought there'd be a pretty solid general guide for Defense tanks with specific info though? For example, I just ran a tip mission against Nemesis. I monitored my defenses the whole time and didn't see any debuffs. But I was getting worked. Checking the combat log, the enemies regular had 50-70% to hit chances. I'm assuming their Vengeance power is +To Hit instead of the +Accuracy described as well. Does the power analyzer let you monitor enemy combat stats and see the source of their buffs
  11. Is there a good general guide out there for what to look out for while tanking each enemy type? I feel like when I hit 35, went from walking wall of invulnerability to regularly faceplanting against various enemy groups (starting with Vanguard.) I think Vanguard have some significant +To Hit, which makes it rough for Defense tankers? I was hoping there was a brief guide somewhere (Vanguard: +To Hit, kill the ??? first to remove the buff, etc.)
  12. I can't find a thread dedicated to discussing Tanker Epic or Patron pools. What are your favorites? Are there hidden gems in there? None of the epic pools look that interesting/fun. I guess a long CD Conserve Power and half a Stamina are the best options? The Patron pools look better, the AoE immobilizes look promising, and maybe the -Res from Leviathan or -ACC from Soul Mastery? I'm Shield/Stone if that changes any recommendations.
  13. Are we now sure the max proc chance is 90% and not 95%? Just checking for some of my slotting which is close.
  14. I did some testing. It seems like the Spores toggle itself procs on you/caster (~3 PPM each for Health and Endurance) and the psuedo-pet also procs separately on targets, but much less often (looks like ~1/5th as often, which makes sense for the area reduction although I can't find the radius.)
  15. Is there a way to change what your pets say when they're summoned, or orders to change stances? I feel like there is, but I'm not having any luck finding it.
