    MM 4some

    My wife and I played some MM's on live, Thugs/Dark and Thugs/Poison. I haven't started an MM on Homecoming yet, but I'm making plans. Something new added to the mix though, is dual-boxing. My wife and I each have a separate account for which we can add a helper to the party. We've done it a little bit with some brutes, but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be really crazy on MM's as our mains. The thought is to have a Sonic Defender with leadership toggles and another defender with either more resistance or defense toggles, and these two just follow. I swap over every 4 minutes to recast shields, and otherwise leave them alone. What MM set would be most enhanced by having a pair of pocket defenders and another MM. I was thinking Thugs/Dark and Thugs/Rad, backed by a Sonic/Sonic and Thermal/Fire defenders, each with Leadership toggles/hover/stealth following. The two sets of thermal shields and leadership toggles combined with two MM leadership toggles and Enforcer toggles should get all pets pretty close to defense soft cap and resist hard cap for most things. Then I read a post about Beasts, and that sounds pretty good where I could change one of the Defenders to Cold Dom and get the Demons soft capped. Anyways, I don't know as much about Masterminds as brutes, so I would love to hear some suggestions about fun combos we could do this with. Thanks.
  2. I definitely want Fault. It's not just mitigation for me, but for whatever team I'm supporting. I took the two builds and came up with some ideas to improve my original build. Still have a few questions. How much accuracy do I need in Fault? It's fairly low to begin with, and since I was chasing F/C & E/N defense, I didn't build for more acc.

  3. This is a theoretical build. He is only lvl 3 at the moment. Thanks for your input. I'll take a look at your build.
  4. Hello, I am seeking assistance for this build. I am more a brute guy, but I wanted to make a tougher than nails toon. My first character was actually a tanker back in '04, but really nothing since. It seems like this build hits a lot of spots. I am just shooting to be as tough as possible, with some mitigation in the form of Fault and Tremor. I'm also not sure which alpha to go with on this build, so I'm looking for power/slotting/alpha suggestions. Thanks.

  5. I posted awhile ago about creating a steamroll all buff/debuff team. My mates and I made our toons and have done some work with it, but it has been tough sledding for me. I made a son/son def and I'm not really happy with him. Recently I was browsing the Cor forum and saw this build for a Fire/Time Cor that looked really intriguing. DPS Support Tank Then I got to thinking, what would changing this to a defender look like? I put it together and it looks like better buffs, as I expected, but the damage looked to be pretty close. I know it's not accounting for scourge, so my question is, what would be the pros and cons of using this build on def vice cor? Thanks.

  7. I have been looking at both of these in Pines. With 26 slots left to go I can easily get Invul def to 39.6% S/L, 37.1% E/N/F/C, and 29.5% psi, with res 90% S/L, 48.2% E/N,Toxic, 45.2% F/C, and 55.7% Psi. Regen at 216%, HP 188%, 50% DDR. At about the same amount of difficulty, Willpower has def 26.3% S/L, 37.2% F/C/E/N, 32.5% Psi with res 90% S/L, 31.1% F/C/Toxic, 34.8% E/N, and 66.5% Psi. Regen at 663%, HP 162.2%, 21.6% DDR. Willpower also has better status protection to confuse and fear, and better status resistance. I want to pair this armor set with Stone Melee. The question is, does the extra regen from Willpower compensate for lower S/L def, and lower E/N/F/C/Toxic resist, plus lower DDR? My goal is to be extremely sturdy. I want to be able to sit in the middle of multiple AVs and not worry about dying. I did an Apex/Tin Mage last night with my Spines/FA Brute, who is a good farmer but also built for normal content and has 90% S/L res and 45% S/L def. I did not like dying as many times as I did. I did not like feeling as squishy as I felt. At the same time, if I'm going to sacrifice the brute damage, I need to make up for it in surviveability, so that is the goal here. Tanking for SF and iTrials. Can you give me the pros and cons of these armor powersets, related to each other? Thanks.
  8. So, for better or worse, my peeps have decided on the following: Controller Plant/Dark Defender Sonic/Sonic Defender Rad/Archery Corruptor Fire/Kin Corruptor Ice/Cold Corruptor Beam/Thermal So, this is not strictly a defender post anymore, but I would welcome advice on what powers to definitely take and which are skippable. We're looking at taking Maneuvers, Assault, and Tactics for all of the toons. We will be doing Cap SF and up. Most of these toons are already in the 30-50 range, so we just need builds, IO's, and then take it to work. Thanks for all your advice and suggestions so far.
  9. I thought Thermal would be a good add, not only for the extra resist buffs and forge, but for the debuffs of Heat Exhaustion and Melt Armor. Are you suggesting that the extra resist is not needed and the debuffs aren't up enough? They do have long recharge times, but with enough recharge, which will probably be there, could be up every other spawn or so.
  10. It is entirely possible that I'm underestimating defenders. One of my concerns is that teams don't always stay together. Sure, when we're all in range, maneuvers and resist toggles will get everyone capped, but I wanted to make sure the Sonic/ defender was able to get their resistance capped as well. Anyways, after reading the responses and thinking about it some more, I think the play might be to have the 6 mains toons use Rad, Cold, Dark, Thermal (all with good debuffs), kin, and sonic (with good buffs). Another two can be whatever, we should be rolling with that. Also, I'm not sure how much it matters that the AT is a defender for some of the sets, such as Kin and Dark. We'll probably go with the existing Fire/Kin Cor and Plant/Dark 'Troller. Maybe go Corrupter for Ice/Cold or Water/Cold as well. Seems like the Thermal and Sonic should definitely be defender, maybe the Rad as well, although looking at the numbers they don't seem very different between def and cor. I appreciate all the responses and welcome more.
  11. I'm having a great time being back in CoV. Much of my legacy Coalition has returned and we are creating teams and doing Strike Forces and such. I remember reading about all defender super teams in the past, and the idea came up tonight for a Themed Team made of the coalition members. We have at least 6 people who play regularly, and more who play sometimes. Leaving aside the themes, unless you have some suggestions, I was trying to wrap my mind around what would be a great synergistic build of 6-8 defenders. Goals are maxing defense and resistance, for buffs, along with +recovery and +regen, and -resist and -regen for debuffs. I came up with Sonic (x2), Thermal, Kin, Cold, and Dark. We already have a Fire/Kin Corruptor, and I thought that would be ok, and we have a Plant/Dark Controller, which I also thought would be ok, so long as the other 4-6 are defenders. We could go 2 sonic/sonic, a thermal/beam, and a cold/ice, with whatever for the remaining 2. With everyone running full leadership pool, we should be at defense softcap from /dark controller and Cold/ defender. My question is, am I on the right track with these combos? Am I missing something? What would be good combos for the last 2? Should I modify anything? I have played almost exclusively brutes, so this would be a big change for me and I'm not familiar at all with the ins and outs of defender play, but I'm interested in finding out. Thanks.
