  1. At work at the moment, but I’ll post my Ice/Thorns/Ice build I cooked up later. I managed to cap S/L defense without any incarnates, and no purples. I don’t know whether it’s perma-Dom, I don’t know the magic number for that. If I overslotted Hasten I’ll probably move a slot from it into health for my third endurance proc
  2. I have an Incarnate Super Reflexes/Battle Axe tanker on Everlasting, but don’t see the pairing in the list, curious if I am a unicorn EDIT: also, no comparisons for Crab v Bane and Fortunata v Night Widow for the VEATs?
  3. Lol I noticed this on my Rad/Bio scrapper, but I didn’t think anything of it because I have the Gaussians proc in it and I thought it was building up twice due to the proc Now I’m just sad to learn my Gaussians hasn’t been having the best chance to proc streak of all time
  4. I really really like the electric control powerset. To me, it's just really fun to pacify a group of enemies with a group hold or sleep, then wade in with my conductive field and leech the will out of every enemy in the area. Thematically for this toon, it's paired with /Force Field to match her backstory, so that's how this unlikely combination of powersets got slapped together. Oh, and she's got a scepter (Mace Mastery), cause she's the Queen of Paragon. Anyway, since I was crazy enough to take this toon all the way to level 50, I'm looking for suggestions on actually refining the powers and enhancements. Through Mid's Reborn I was able to get ranged defense up to 40%, but I have no idea what the softcap is. Melee defense I'm less concerned about since I tend to use Hover a lot and kite enemies/let my pets distract them in melee range. Anyway, looking for suggestions if people see holes in my build/advice for Electric Control/advice for Force Field/advice for et cetera.

  5. I’ve heard this complaint a lot as well in my RP circles. Kind of defeats its own purpose. It would be nice if it were lighter or a different color.
  6. I too would be interested in an answer to this question. I’m still figuring out incarnate stuff and would love direction on my Crab Spider.
  7. RIP SmalltalkJava, still waiting for his appointment
  8. Thanks all for the input. This was gonna be a casual toon I’d play with a buddy of mine, so I wouldn’t expect to play him past the mid-20s honestly. Guess I’ll be forging my own path when it comes to slotting. The character concept is SCP-049 (the Plague Doctor), which Necromancy/Poison is absolutely perfect for, with his reanimated corpses “cured” of the Great Pestilence, and using poisons as medicine. Can’t really powerset him any other way. If homecoming devs actually end up with favorable ownership after talks with NCSoft, maybe /Poison could stand to be buffed/changed.
  9. I’m building a thematic toon who’s a Necromancy/Poison MM and I came to the forum for ideas, but I can’t find a single build for a toon with /Poison. Is the power set a heaping pile of garbage or something? For those who have played Poison, what is good and how would I slot? It seems like the debuffs in the powerset are strong, so I’m not sure if I’m missing something.
  10. I was fighting Council and 5th Column in the streets of Steel Canyon, but I noticed some discrepancies between their names and models; there was a Penumbra Elite model who was named Nebula Cor Leonis (light brown with mask, not the skintight suit). I’ve also seen 5th with the glowy eyes model without the Elite title. Generic Nebel soldiers also seem to spawn in way higher levels than they should (Founders). Of course, there’s also the door missions that spawn that ONE gray Vortex Adjutant (usually Citadel or Moonfire TF).
  11. I know this is an old thread, but I’d like to bump is as I too am leveling an NRG/Rad Br00t and would love some suggestions and advice. Unfortunately, a lot of the other threads seem to be complaining about how NRG melee sucks lategame.
  12. Sounds like you’re doing everything right tbh. Only thing I can think of is trying to put Numinas Regen/Rec and Miracle Recovery enhancements into health. Since you mentioned Kismet I’m assuming you’re running IOs or IO set enhancements. Invulnerability doesn’t have an endurance power like Willpower or Radiation unfortunately. Might be worth it to invest in Performance Shifter set in stamina if you haven’t already.
  13. So this is the first toon I've gotten to level 50 (WOOHOO), but I'm still new to character building with IO sets and Pines/Mids doesn't work on my Mac (BOO), so I'm hoping some of you wonderful folks here in the forums could give me some pointers. I pretty much frankenstein'd my working build from two different other builds, and changed the slotting a bit. Sorry if this doesn't end up being super helpful because I can't say what all the IO set buffs end up being, but here goes. Notes: I hate running out of endurance, so I may have slotted more slots than necessary into stamina / epic power pool. But I like to leave all my toggles on as a Stoner and fight without having to figure out which ones I'm supposed to have active per the enemy type I'm up against. Also, I tend not to use Granite Armor a whole lot except if I'm the designated aggro sponge for the team, I'd rather have Minerals up against all the psionics in the lategame.
