  1. I am a major fan of Psi Mastery. I guess that is because I am always strapped for slots and I can get Psi for 2 powers (Indomitable Will and Mind Over Body) slot 0-3 slots in them and feel like I have exactly what I need. IW removes the need for Clarion and is a LotG mule and Mind Over Body can mule a Resist IO of some sort if that is the best in slotting I have for it. But at least 2 of my trollers have perma IW.
  2. I have a Fire/Dark, it is an AoE Monster and just plows through things, but as soon as something resists my KD in bonfire or gets moving while solo I usually seem to feel a bit afraid. For a team, you still contribute all the great buffs to the team and you are in Melee more so Soul Absorption is easy to get on yourself. My Ill/Dark isn't 50 atm, but it is a monster also with a good team oriented feel to it. I can solo, though slower and I always feel safe because of PA. I feel like this is a real team winner though. You can contribute in so many places with PA tanking some, the Heal, the Endurance recovery, a ton of Def buffs for the whole team. Granted Fire has most of those too, I feel like when I play my Ill/Dark I am a lot more focused on the team then on the enemies because PA is my primary skill. Plus Spec Terror is amazing. Just my opinion.
  3. I justify it as a hobby... One that has only intensified with COVID.

  5. I am a HUGE fan of Elec/Anything. I have an Elec/Storm, Elec/Poison and a few Elec/Time toons. Why I have so many Elec/Time toons is beyond me (I made another yesterday). This is 100% true. I actually look for smaller teams that want to do missions when playing Elec/Poison and Elec/Time. A group of 4 players running at +4/x6-8 is pretty much perfect for me after I hit the mid twenties. But I really came here to point out. When I run /Time or /Dark, I usually aim for more like 40% Def, especially when playing Elec/. This is because I can easily get that last 5% with a Defense Amplifier from the P2W vendor, plus in a team there is usually a Maneuvers or two running to help. And if all that fails, grab a Purp inspiration. You'll mostly be at 45% at all times with those conditions. So yeah, 40% Def, this lets you focus on Perma-Haste and grabbing Resistance. I also push some fun slotting into Jolting Chain and Electric Fences because of this, usually putting a large number of Procs in them.
  6. I don't have Mids handy so I am jsut going to put in my 2 cents here and argue for which of these are better for hitting your goals. My favorite build for Ill/ is /Time though. I would suggest I'll Dark as it hits your interest in not being too squishy with Fade. You also gain an amazing End recovery option, Soul Absorption. So really it would be my choice. But you're going to have to build hard for Recharge on it to get Perma Fade and PA, which will most likely mean Perma-Haste. As you are not requiring capped Def or Res (All capped Res on a Troller is seriously a funny concept to me, jsut sacrificing too much to get it), you can probably go for Flight, Fighting, Leadership and Super Speed. Now on the other side, /Rad. I find this to have End problems, Accelerated Metab doesn't do enough to fix those problems. And really you get no Defense bonus in Rad, other then a nice -ToHit from Rad Infection. If you want to hit your list, /Rad doesn't make sense to me. I'll break this down a little though. Unlike Soul Absorb, Accelerated Metab is only going to net you 1end/sec when you get enough recovery in it. It does offer some recharge to help with Perma PA though. You lack the astounding Def options of Fade and Shadow fall though (together with no enhancements they provide 10-13% to all Defenses I think). So in conclusion, 100% for /Dark. You are going to need Hella lotsa +Rech to get everything Perma with Haste included, but it can be done. Fade will shore up your Defense numbers easily. Hover/Fly on a macro to toggle back and forth is a given, cause you'll want the Def bonus from Hover in combat. You want the Leadership and Fighting pools also to bring in the Def numbers, with a little Res from the Fighting Pool. Don't shy away from tactics as with a 6 slot of Gaussians you get the Build Up Proc and some decent Def bonuses also. PS. Dark gets Fluffy... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I loaded Mids onto this machine because I thought this would be good to share, I don't know why I hadn't before.... But, I want to give credit as this is not my build, it was posted by @Dismiss on the Discord. You will need to change Leaping for Flight and the Patron Pool though. I will post the build below.

    Elec/what?

    I have an Elec/Storm I am leveling right now. I have already been bit by this. I have pretty much regulated Freezing Rain to groups and Static Field to solo. You just cannot use them together. It sucks to lose Rain's debuffs when soloing but at the same time I am using sleep->hurricane (to group)-> and then going to town with jolting chain and Electric Fences proced up and I seem to be clearing solo fine. But in groups I usually don't get to move for containment, so i just Drop Rain and spam Jolting Chain and Gust with a KB-KD proc in it. I am skipping Thunder Clap at the moment, but have considered droping Freezing Rain to add it for more Solo capability. Just haven't decided on that yet. Later on, I am going to be laughing with the solo setup, just drop 6 pets on the group and watch chaos ensue (2 Gremlins, Tornado, Lightning Storm, and Leviathan for Water Spout and Coralax-not every spawn for these Patron pets). But this is also an interesting pairing in that I was actually not interested in getting Perma Haste (I didn't even take Haste or SS). Lightning Storm and Tornado at on a 30 and 20 sec cooldown respectively w/o Haste and the FF +Rech procs will probably drop that further. The whole build feels extremely safe, even when the enemies are not sapped completely because they are confused or asleep. The sleep just allows for some amazing setup with Hurricane, if you spend the time to push in stragglers. And Once they are bunched you can confuse and then just go to town while practically standing ont hem to get the Conductive Aura on them. It isn't fast, but it looks like it does damage. Also note, I like the Defensive buff from P2W vendor, so with it plus the defenses I built into the build I am sitting at 41.96 Def. Purples are my friend when engaging solo. In teams I am soft capped by other people's Maneuvers.

    Elec/what?

    I liked my Elec/Poison when I played it. With Poison I was able to actual build in some -Recovery. So when they got bottomed out on end, they just didn't get it back, Plus Poison is fun to just Proc up and go with. Just my opinion though.
  9. Here are a few of mine. I don't stick to one...
  10. I love that if you do build Perma-Haste, you get the 20 sec recharge and don't need anything but 1 slot to make it this good. And if you have 1 additional slot you can just slot the FF +Rech in it for the extra boost. Really amazing that I get so much mileage from 2 slots, it is the backbone of my Fire/Dark and Fire/Rad. Just amazing.
  11. All the talk of Heat Loss has me now mulling over making a build that intentionally being as End Heavy as I can make it. Like 9-10 toggles with -Zero- end redux in them. And an end heavy rotation. Just to make it so that investing in Stamina and Health will also be needed.... 🙂 Thanks!
  12. 6 slotted Preemptive Optimization in it. My Recovery more than doubles and I barely dent my bar. I do not have it Perma, but it is up every 2 minutes which has worked fine for me. I did not want to work for Perma-Hasten on my build so I never expected Perma, but it does the job it is intended. Edit: Just to point out, I'd say that Heat Loss is almost tied for MVP power in Cold, Sleet is amazing IMO.
  13. Yeah, pretty much can't even get a FS off because you don't get there quick enough....
  14. This is true. And for us Controllers, at level 50 you are really just trying to make the tiniest impact.
