I have an Invul/Fire Tanker. I'm pretty pleased with him at level 50 with all of his Incarnate abilities unlocked and a full IO build.
Recently, with all of the FotM talk going on, I decided to build an Invul/Super Strength Tanker. It's highly represented; and, I see them all the time. I had always just chalked that up to being a very 'iconic' combination. Nevertheless, I powered through and now have one with all of his Incarnate abilities unlocked and a full IO build. Regarding that IO build, I really went whole hog. Got the IO sets that allowed me to reach soft cap Defense on all damage types. It's a nice build.
Been playing him lately and got to Tank the Crimson Prototype, the AVs in the Miss Liberty TF, Apex/Tin Mage, etc. Really impressive. I genuinely felt...Invulnerable. That being said, I don't feel Super Strong. The damage feels middling at best. Only one real AoE attack. All Smashing damage. Just underwhelming.
So, am I missing something? Is SS a real gem and I'm not playing it right?
The idea has entered my head recently, that I could just pry all of these high dollar enhancement out of the SS Tank and throw them in a storage bin in the SG base. And then respec the Invul/Fire Tank and get the same great benefits of a high dollar build on a Tank whose damage is superior.
Am I missing something about Fire Melee? Is it not as good as it seems?
I would really like some perspective here.
