  1. I'd be slotting for max instant snipe damage (should be insanely easy with perma soul drain), and I'd put the achilles heel -res in my snipe. Rad snipe in particular is good for this, because the -res will actually take effect on the first dot tick, meaning the next 3 will do 20% more damage. I know you said you weren't planning on perma soul drain, but I feel like it's worth it and pretty achievable, especially with things like ageless in the mix. Smite, rad snipe, and midnight grasp would probably be my single target bread and butter. Definitely be taking and slotting the damage
  2. With temps, some are more high maintenance, like the amplifiers from p2w, since they cost 2.5 mil each. I can understand not wanting to build around those. Others are really cheap, and it's just a matter of replacing them. Kinetic dampener is like 12ish (i think) percent s/l defense. It's a toggle that you can buy for pretty cheap (I think about 1 mil for an hour's worth). You can buy up to one hour of the temp, and you can turn off the toggle when you're not using it, so you won't waste any time. Basically, you COULD make a build with s/l defense in the 30s and then s
  3. I mean, plenty of people have seen me do it, and plenty have done it themselves (because it's not a crazy achievement, and anyone can do it), including the people who made the asteroid farm map in the first place. But sure, indom server, @banana man. Idk if I can do 2:30 regularly anymore, but I can still probably do around 3 minutes, which is a little faster than most top tank/brute speeds. It's not about bragging or having a big head, it's about answering a player's question asking about blaster farming.
  4. I can make you an all purpose PvE build, or at least something to point you in the right direction. I'd ask a few questions first, though. 1. Do you use temps? (base temp for 30% recharge, kinetic dampener for s/l defense, amplifiers, etc) 2. Is fly a must? If it's a must, I can make a build with it, but combat jumping is pretty key on /fire blasters so you can get into good positions quickly to maximize your AoEs.
  5. I'd like to think I don't weigh in on subjects unless I have some sort of idea what I'm talking about. I don't farm much anymore, because I don't have any reason to, and I have a pretty short attention span for it. When I did farm, I farmed using an ice/fire blaster on maps functionally identical to the popular "Comic-Con" map set at +4/x8 with bosses on. I did full clears or near full clears in about 2 minutes and 30 seconds, closer to 3 minutes on the higher end. I can show anyone who wants in person. Anyway, I was talking about the fire secondary. Fire p
  6. Basically any blaster can do it with the right build. -regen doesn't really matter because most AVs are going to resist it heavily, and blaster -regen debuffs are pretty weak to begin with. You want a lot of global recharge, a lot of damage, and ideally something you can slot a -res proc into and have it proc regularly. With dark blast you're gonna want to build for instant snipe and use that as your main attack. Moonbeam is the only good single target attack in the set, so you'll want a secondary with more damage options. I'd go with /fire. Dark's weakness in normal gameplay is li
  7. "Whilst Homecoming is still undergoing efforts to become a legitimate operation, live broadcasts or uploads of gameplay footage are not permitted." Fire is far and away the best for any primary when farming (and usually in general). For farming purposes, the best primary with a secondary that isn't fire probably would get out-farmed by literally any primary paired with fire. Tldr: For farming: best primary/not fire < worst primary/fire Dark isn't great for farming, but its doable with /fire. The only powers you'd probably use from dark for a farm
  8. Posting videos is against the CoC so I can't give you a video. I can show you in game sometime. I'm probably easiest to reach via discord. I'm @S on the PvP discord and @CR banana man on the main homecoming discord. Kin is basically non-existent in asteroid farm runs. Most of what it offers is fulcrum shift, and you can damage cap for the entire run using t1 insps. I feel like the best buff/debuff secondaries would be things with aoe -res debuffs that are ticking patches, so they can hit more than 16 things (sleet, freezing rain, etc).
  9. A single ice/fire blaster can farm faster than a single brute, so I don't know that I'd call it a novelty. It's much more work than farming on a brute, or a tank (tanks are probably better than brutes now), but you can reach similar or slightly greater levels of efficiency. When farming with two people, ie one blaster + one tank or one brute, it starts to get considerably faster than running two brutes. Spines/fire scrappers could POTENTIALLY be better than anything, but it'd be a matter of how much saturation you can maintain on it. Fire isn't a bad primary for farming
  10. Orrrrrr you could come play too. lol.
  11. Apex is pretty fun and easy with tw/fire. Tin mage isn't that much harder, just more tedious because of all the goliath war walkers and their s/l res. Tw/bio should be more than able to do them too.
  12. You probably want your crit strikes proc in follow through, and I'd avoid slotting it with too much recharge.
  13. If you want to do a bunch of damage while still being basically just as durable, I'd run something like this with musculature, ageless, degen, and assault. You'll have perma hasten and then some, optimal proc rates, 56% damage bonus at all times, and much more single target damage potential. I haven't played SR, so the slotting might be a little janky, but I've played kat/bio. I realize the slotting on GD and SC probably looks weird, but it's good. You'll ensure your crit proc goes off as much as possible while still being in a power useful for doing single target DPS, you'll appl
  14. What kind of fire blaster are you using to farm?
  15. If the question is whether or not you should slot more, it depends on how you're going to play and what you're gaining by not getting to 45%. 45% isn't that hard to get, so it's likely that you should try for it unless you're gaining some kind of really high damage bonus, or optimal proc slotting. Also, you can still have 45% defense without slotting for it if you use things like purples, or the super cheap and effective kinetic damper (I think that's what it's called) temp from the p2w, or the p2w amps.
