    I'm no expert by any means, but I rolled up a Staff/Bio last night and have a rough plan for where I want him to end up. Minimal slotting of the expensive stuff, but it still hits defcap for E/N/F/C, and is just a hair short of rescap on S/L. I'm sure there is plenty of room for improvement but maybe this could serve as a base? Or at least give someone smarter than me something concrete to pick apart 🙂 Villain Plan by Hero Villain Designer 2.23 https://github.com/ImaginaryDevelopment/imaginary-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  2. Yes, "clunky" is a great way to describe it! Would have been better if the super jump was a clicky (like Inertial Reduction from Kin) and Takeoff was active while the click power was active. At least that way it would have a minor utility to it.
  3. I tried out the leaping power on a lowbie (L4) last night, and was likewise disappointed. Same speed/height as Super Jump, no problem there, but the secondary "Takeoff" ability was painfully underwhelming. Toggled on in the middle of a pack of +0 Hellions in AP and hit Takeoff. Only half the spawn was knocked down, and I honestly didn't notice the speed increase. (I forgot to check my stats to see what the actual increase is.) For a power on a 2-minute timer, I was hoping for at least a guaranteed KD, or maybe a smidge of damage, or... something.
  4. Note for next time. Thanks!
  5. Yeah I've carved out time to get into one MSR thus far. I only ended up with about half what you suggest is possible tho - is there a secret?
  6. Thanks @Hyperstrike for taking a look. I'll definitely plug a Miracle in, and make the Boxing > Kick swap (I usually do for my builds, clearly I slipped up this time!). Given that your suggestion is an aspirational build for me, it's going to be baby steps to get there. To that end, in your opinion is there a purple/PVP set that's going to give me more bang for my buck than others and should be prioritized? The Superior Winter's Bite perhaps, as you specifically called that one out? Or would I be better off super-ing my ATOs first?
  7. Electric Daisy hit 50 just before ToT. I've since unlocked her Alpha, Judgment & Interface slots, and halfway to Lore & Destiny. I've got a respec planned because of the tanker changes incoming. And I should prolly work on making some superior ATOs. That's a lot to do, and I'm lost as to when it should all be done & the best way to go about it. In terms of specific lines of advice, I'm looking for info on: I have no hot clue about incarnate slotting (my only incarnate back on live was a Spine/Dark scrapper who went Cardiac & didn't unlock any other slots). I'm seeing benefit from a lot of different things, and the way the various incarnate pieces can be made to work together doesn't steer me in any clear direction. I started out thinking Spiritual or Agility alpha because I have a couple small attack chain gaps, and getting Energize back a couple seconds sooner would be spiffy, but I don't know if that's entirely optimal given I can also get recharge out of Ageless destiny. (Like I said, too many options!) As a follow-up to that, I don't see Alpha slotting as a prerequisite to the others. Should I be looking at filling a different slot before Alpha? With the ATOs, I believe I'm best off catalyzing them a set at a time so I don't lose bonii from running split regular/superior versions? For the planned build below, aside from upgrading to purples (of which I currently have exactly 2, thanks to a drop and a gift), have I made any glaring bad decisions? Can I squeeze more recharge in anywhere? Am I overdoing it on defense given zero DDR (or conversely am I way under-targetting what I can do with defense)? It's a lot to ask, but I'm essentially a noob at this stage of the game, and I want Daisy to be her best. Many thanks in advance for all advice offered!

  8. I've been having success with my /Regen guy. With only 2 clickies it's pretty set-and-forget. While I'm only sitting in the mid-teens to low 20's for defense, and mid-20's for resists, so far that plus native regen has been enough to take me to 44 incredibly smoothly. I think he's hospital'd once? Of course, I solo on -1/x2 because speed, but I've done enough team content at higher difficulties to get a decent sense of his survivability there. Once he 50's, my next project is going to be one of the defense sets so I can get a good feel for it, because given the choice I'd rather shoot for soft defense than hard 70% resist.
  9. Prolly a stupid question but one I haven't seen answered elsewhere... if my tank is overcapped on a resist (e.g. Elec/ way overcaps to Energy), does the overcap in any way compensate for the debuff? I.e. Say I'm sitting at 120% energy resist on a 90% cap; when the Rage crash drops me by 20%, am I now at 70%, or at 100% on a 90% cap?
  10. I had a DA scrapper back in the day and I keep telling myself I'm gonna re-roll him as a tanker. Definitely using this as a starting point for when I get to that project!
  11. To answer the defense cap question, all the mainly +def sets can reach the regular content softcap with varying amounts of effort. Heck, I'm mediocre at best and I can build an SR tanker to incarnate softcaps without purple sets for goodness sake. Of the mainly +res sets I think Invul is your best bet for hitting some of the defense softcaps.
  12. +to-hit and +perception are flavourful, and in the lower levels the +tohit at least would be welcomed. That said, they are not really compelling or exciting, which I'd suggest a non-zero number of us would agree are desirable attributes on our New Inherent Wishlist. THAT said, I very much doubt people roll Defenders because "Vigilance is teh awesome"; which leads to: If the class, through its primary and secondary, does something unique and interesting and effective, I'd prolly be OK with a less-than-overwhelming inherent. In its current form, I enjoy playing my Sentinels as mini hover-tanks (I also come with a very strong preference for armour sets on my toons, so...), and I don't get that same experience from the other ranged classes. The only part of the AT, as it is now, that I dislike is Opportunity. Specifically: (1) if I miss with my preferred attack, I have to either settle for the other or wait and try again, which slows me down; and (2) outside of AVs/GMs, the value of the big Opportunity debuff (in teams especially) is usually wasted because everything dies so fast anyway. So for me and my playstyle, an inherent that is neither frustrating nor feels wasted would be a significant improvement, notwithstanding any other changes to the AT.
  13. I really like the "alt-Leadership" approach @PaxArcana, particularly the debuff resistance aspect. As far as a defensive buff is concerned, tho, I don't know that straight +res is the way to go, simply because the Sentinels' secondaries are not all resistance based and I personally like the idea of something a little more flavour-agnostic (yes, I do get that you're trying not to step on Maneuvers' toes with this as well). To that end, along with the debuff resistance, I'd propose +perception (cause I'm still trying to find the flavour of "lookout/spotter", dangit!) and some foe -damage & -tohit (which better supports the multiple armour types in the game). Shooting for an "I am the Sentinel, the Watcher Over All, and I see your tricks coming from a mile away" kinda vibe.
