  1. If I am remembering right, Kin Melee has some of the faster animation times (Yes, I know they appear to be slow, but go check Arcana), and they apply that sweet -Dam effect to your enemies. Combine that with a +Def armor set and it's a pretty decent combo. My Kin/EnA is a beast, just don't pay attention to her complete lack of AOE.
  2. Might I suggest a Water/Martial Blapper? Ran it through the entirety of L1-20 Praetoria (Every contact, something over 400+ Merits earned) and it was almost too easy.
  3. Much appreciated, Oldskool ❤️ Loading those up to give them proper reads now.
  4. Sorry to bother you all, but I'm in a bit of a spot. Just had an idea for a concept Beam/SR (with Hover/Fly/Afterburner), but I was wondering if I'm looking at it right. Seems that both BR and SR needs the majority of their kits. I'm currently leveling it, so not that far along (sitting at L9 while I figure out costumes for her). Planning on going Master over Practiced for the passive buffs to the Melee/Ranged toggles, pushing Aim to L30, and pushing Elude to the final pick, or not at all. I have currently skipped over Focused Senses so I could have Single Shot>Cutting Beam>Disintegrate along with Agile and Hover, though I know that the 3x Flight powers could have been pushed a bit. If possible, just looking for some decent directions to go and shoot for (no pun intended). I have no knowledge of either set, so any information you all could share is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time ❤️
  5. I'll throw in my fave: Kin/Energy, my Zoom-Stalker. All of the attacks in Kin/* have -Damage which works very well when/if any get through */Energy's +Defense. */Energy also has Energize (Heal and End discount), Entropy Shield (+Recharge status protection toggle), and Energy Drain (PBAoE End siphon) to make sure you never want to leave combat. Kin Melee has a bad reputation of being a "slow" set, but the attacks feel very quick to me (Concentrated Strike being an outlier). CS, however, does benefit from resetting Build-Up on crit, so I can't advise skipping it. The set also boasts a very decent ranged knock-down power in Focused Burst, though it comes late at L26. All-in-all, it was a very fun Praetorian character for me. I skipped Placate from the primary, and Disrupt (PBAoE Stun-toggle) and Overload (+Defense "Oh crap" power, with a hard crash).
  6. Kin/EnA was my first Stalker 50, just a very fun ride. Sure, no Power Siphon, but it was just a great combo (this kick-started my love of all things Energy Aura, so there's that).
  7. Knocking someone on their butt, if I wanted to do that, I'd take Ice/* or Earth/*. What's the point if you're not throwing someone clear across the room? Not trolling you, or the thread, but optimization and fun have their places. Ill/Storm, this is fun for me, sorry.
  8. I, for one, welcome new Ill/Storms and am a fan of not slotting the KB>KD IOs. Let that chaos-flag fly high ❤️
  9. A couple weeks late, but definitely let me know if you still need a body. Always need a reason to roll another alt 😃
  10. http://www.brockjones.com/dieroller/dice.htm Rolls 1 and 2 (AT): 66 and 6, so 66.06 - Sentinel Rolls 3 and 4 (Primary): 64 and 19, so 64.19 - Ice Blast Rolls 5 and 6 (Secondary): 19 and 73, so 19.73 - Electric Armor Have never played an Ice Blast character, so this should be fun! May I present Chamonix!
  11. I have a Savage/Energy Brute for this reason. End Discount from high stacks plus the Recharge bonus of Entropic Aura
  12. I've been running an Invuln/Staff Tank and, without IO sets (using standard non-set IOs), she's been the quickest one that I could up the difficulty on. Only thing that feels off with her is that there is no NoRedraw option for the attacks. Also adding that Guarding Strike (the first cone they get) has an enormous area-of-affect and boosts your Def. As far as your Kinetic Melee thoughts, I'd pair it with a Def-heavy set where the -Dam from the attacks will be more visible (my experience is based on a KM/EnA Stalker). The math is odd when you're combining -Dam attacks with +Res armors.
  13. My main back on Live was a FF/Rad Offender and I re-rolled her here as Rad/FF. PFF, Defelction/Insulation, Dispersion, and Bomb from */FF leaves a LOT of spots open for blasts and aux powers (Aid Self, looking at you!). I also feel that Rad Blast is one of those sets that works very well for Scourge (and for slotting the ATO with the +Chance for Heal in Irradiate). Neutrino Bolt is a machinegun of a power, very low damage, but fast firing. Proton Volley will always be one of my favorite snipes because of the PewPewPew. FF with the +Def and Rad Blast with the -Def (lots of room for Achilles) and everything just works.
  14. Just finished running a Water/MC Blaster through Praetoria using this guide (Tutorial>Loyalist>Swap Every Morality>Primal/Hero). As a note, and this is probably bugged somehow, when you get to Neutropolis as a Resistance member, you can talk to and acquire Calvin Scott's missions *before* starting Crow>Helix.
