  1. you can also use pet names with the /pet_select_name pet_name command, that way you don't have to worry if you have multiple pets changing orders
  2. So here's the thing about end drain in PvE... It's all or nothing, so although Dark sounds tempting (and it is a very good set) enemies won't really be wasting end. If they have end, they will be able to attack is kind of the way that it works. So, Purely draining, Elec/ is your best choice, however, it is lower in damage than any of the sets that you mentioned. I haven't played him yet, but I rolled an Elec/Rad defender with the idea that Elec doesn't have any -def or -res and since Rad is all -def, you can proc for that in a couple places.
  3. Power boost increases the duration of mez effects, not the magnitude.
  4. Plant/Traps is a (hypothetical) interesting choice since you can stack Tree and Triage beacon to give everyone on your team over 700% regen. Now, the problem with this is that other than melee characters (excluding stalkers) ATs don't have enough max HP for that to make a huge difference. That being said, you can't go wrong with traps. Plant/Nature is good thematically too, and Nature is a great set.
  5. So, question: when/if mids gets updated and the ZC_ disappears from Elec Affinity/Leadership will our builds still work or will that break them?
  6. Tanks have a lot more survivability pre IO sets, post sets, you can pretty much even them out. I like DA, but it's a bit of an end hog. I like DA/SM for Oppressive Gloom + Fault for a perma mag-4 stun + a mag 4 hold. I don't really know anything about DM, but I can say it shores up your endurance problems with Dark Consumption. it's also more of a ST set than others, only having Shadow Maul for real damage (though the recent buff should be interesting)
  7. the T9 is a good slog for the 2 +Def IOs, or the +HP IO As a Comparison, here is my WP/Mace tank. on Titan Weapon I'd probably drop Resurgence for Build Momentum Hero Plan by Mids' Reborn : Hero Designer https://github.com/ImaginaryDevelopment/imaginary-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  8. If memory serves correctly, Stealth and Super Speed don't stack, so I'd drop stealth for Aimed Shot and Ranged Shot for Blazing Arrow. Are you not planning on Exemplaring? if you are, you need Speed Boost at 12 and it should be slotted with an end mod that would look more like this (note, you now have full invisibility) Hero Plan by Mids' Reborn : Hero Designer https://github.com/ImaginaryDevelopment/imaginary-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  9. Willpower's weakness is in its ability to take an Alpha strike. That being said, as a tank you can easily cap Smashing/Lethal resistance and Fire/Cold/Energy/Negative Defense through the IO system and tough/weave/Combat Jumping. I don't know a thing about TW, but WP is one of my favorite sets, so I can probably help a bit with that if you have other specific questions.
  10. Only the Resist splashes to teammates, the mez protection does not. Currently no Mez Protection does this, so I suspect Clear Mind is not going to get the special treatment.
  11. it works on both living and dead bodies. There is an accuracy check for the living. I like it, shores up endurance usage for me and helps the team too. On my Ill/Dark I have it 4 slotted with Numina's On my Dark/Dark I've got 2 Endmod/Acc/Rech and 2 Miracles (Heal/End/Rech, Heal/Rech) YMMV
  12. you're going to have to do a lot of moving around of powers, and you're going to lose some S/L resist, but if you want the 5th slot, I'd do the following: drop the Def/Rech from maneuvers Move World of Pain to 49 Move boxing to 28 Move Tough to 30 Weave to 41 Power Build Up to 44 Temp Invul to 47 That will let you get 5 slots into the power. Unfortunately, it gimps you if you exemp down below 44
  13. I'm going to argue that you want either Oppressive Gloom or Cloak of Fear (If not both) Oppressive Gloom is only mag 2 but it's really cheap to run (you can get away with 1 slotting it) Cloak of Fear is mag 3, but it's really expensive to run I like Breath of Fire, Take either Incinerate or Greater Fire Sword, you don't need both, they do the same DPS and you'll have enough of an attack chain already that you'll be good. Taunt... you're a tank, take it.
