  1. I am reviving all of my old heroes from Live and up next is my main tank. I kept none of my notes and builds from Live so please help critique this build as I start my planning. Dull Pain is perma. Haste is just two seconds shy. Attack Chain would go KB>Jab>Haymaker>Jab>Foot stomp>Haymaker Recharge was obviously a priority, but after that I kind of lost focus. I just grabbed a little defense, a little res, and a little regen. I took Unrelenting as a chaser for Rage to minimize the DPS crash. Let me know if this is a dumb idea. After the core build was done I had three extra slots open and it seemed like a waste to spend them on Tough/Weave.

  2. One thing I'd really like to work on, if possible, is to create a group repository of information on Sentinels as a whole, explaining what makes a strong pairing from each primary to each secondary and all of the pool powers, as well as what distinguishes Sentinels from Scrappers and Blasters. I understand that this is a big undertaking, but I think it could be extremely helpful to new players. I have some thoughts on these subjects, but the fact of the matter is, I didn't play CoX live at a very high level of proficiency and there are limits to how much I've experienced in Sentinel as-is. I will say that i would like to avoid contributions from people who are of the position that there is no such thing as a weak choice of powerset in CoX, or of the position that any powerset is so bad it should not be taken by anyone with an interest in m making the most of their characters. I believe it is possible and responsible to speak in general terms about average player performance and also support a diversity of interests. There is no wrong way to play, but I want players to be reasonably well-informed going into their choices -- at least, if they want to be. Some enjoy the discovery! I think the best way to create such a project would be for people to submit "sets" of opinions, where they analyze multiple different powersets in compare and contrast, so that we can get a feel for each reviewer's independently, then have a "czar" for that powerset synthesize all the submissions into something that succinctly reflects the consensus and any important divergences thereof. However, that assumes a large interest in this project. I don't know if anyone else would be interested in contribution. Also, accepting general feedback at this stage. Post inspired in part by @oldskool and their excellent comments in various threads. Set Sign-Up Sheet List of posters reviewing what powersets.

I'll increase the number of slots if necessary. I intend to do the synthesizing of reviews into a coherent whole and will also be doing primary reviews on a number of sets; please feel free to keep me honest and call me on my shit if you think I've done a poor job somewhere. I'm initially going to be conservative on picking sets and stick to ones I feel I have a very, very strong grasp on; I'll branch out to ones I feel I have an OK grasp on if we have a lot of holes. If you're interested in submitting a review, this is the current format. Submissions are not yet open, but will be soon barring major disagreements. Set Review Format (Tentative) Powerset Name Basic Qualities:0 If damage primary: High/Med/Low Single-Target Damage1, High/Med/Low AoE Damage2 (# Cones/# Spheres/# PBAoEs)3, High/Med/Low Control4 If survival secondary: High/Med/Low HP/Healing5, High/Med/Low Defense6, High/Med/Low Resistance7, High/Med/Low "Clicky-ness"8. If pool: The main purpose of this pool. Special Qualities: For primaries, list secondary effects here: knockback, knockdown, stun, -regen, -res, -def, etc. Do not include the benefits of Passive or Active Opportunity. For secondaries, list things that aren't defense, resistance, healing, absorbs, or max HP here. So +recharge, defense debuff resistance, any notable mez protection the set lacks or is weak in, etc. If pool: Can skip Other: Anything else that you think should be noted about this powerset. Significant changes in this powerset from their implementation on other archetypes should go here. Beginner's Notes: Any powers or strategies that are especially beneficial to low level or new players to this set. This is a good place to put down slotting ideas for before level 50 (keep it to under 10 million inf. costs please) as well as early level rotations. Skippables/Must-Haves: For primaries or secondaries, list the powers that typically are considered optional or bad. For pools, list powers that are the strongest in the set. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. Advanced Slotting: L50 builds. (sky's the limit for budget). Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. This will probably be a pretty long section that needs subdivisions, I'll work on this some more. Base Rotation: The standard attack rotation leveling up or at early 50s, for people to refine. Note any cooldown benchmarks that may be necessary for a specific rotation if it requires over 70% or so enhancement or global recharge. Complementary Choices: Suggest any primary, secondary, or pool (save ones that are mutually exclusive with this one) that synergizes with this one, and explain why. Ex: Energy Blast synergizes well with pools that contain an AoE immobilize with knockback protection and a strong melee attack to make the most of position with Nova; Dark Blast synergizes well with Dark Mastery to completely floor the opponents' accuracy. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. Incarnates: Would skip this for pool powers generally speaking, but incarnate powers that pair notably well with this powerset. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. 0 All measures assuming fully geared and incarnated at 50; this is just so we have an empirical baseline. 1 High: ST damage of approximately ≥230+ DPS. // Medium: ST damage of approximately 190 DPS. // Low: ST damage of approximately ≤160 DPS. If damage type is mostly Smashing or Lethal, consider it one tier lower. 2 High: Has 3+ AoEs. // Medium: Has 2 AoEs. // Low: Has 1 AoE. If damage type is mostly Smashing or Lethal, consider it as having one fewer AoE. 3 The breakdown of the number and type of each AoE type. 4 High: Reliably reduces incoming damage from the average pack of enemies by 50% or more. // Medium: Reliably reduces incoming damage from the average pack of enemies by about a third or a quarter. // Low: Controls can be beneficial sometimes but not to be relied upon. 5 High: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 10 seconds or less. // Medium: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 20 seconds or so. // Low: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 40 seconds or more. Does not include the benefits of Defensive Opportunity. 6 Use values derived from Reistorm's chart located here. High: Gets S/L/E or all Positional to ≥32.5%. // Medium: Gets some of S/L/E or Positional to ≥32.5%, or gets all of S/L/E to 20%+. // Low: Any other result. 7 Use values derived from Reistorm's chart located here. High: Gets S/L to ≥45% or S/L/E to ≥30%. // Medium: Gets S/L or E o to ≥45%, or gets all to 20+%. // Low: Any other result. 8 High: Has 2+ abilities with an enhanced cooldown of a minute or less used frequently. // Medium: Has an ability virtually used on 'autocast' or an ability with an enhanced cooldown of a minute or less that otherwise needs to be frequently used for a non-healing purpose. // Low: Active abilities with enhanced cooldowns of a minute or less are rarely used for any purpose but an emergency heal.

  3. The idea is to make a third build for an Invuln/Energy Melee character as tough as possible, while retaining enough QOL to render play enjoyable (it does not matter how good the character, if it is not fun, it will not be played - Ive an existing Single-Target-Damage Focused build that sacrifices its travel power for damage - I may shed a little bit of damage to get Flight back!) The easy answer, use other power sets, is taken as given. DM would give a heal. MArts would give DEF. Stone would be far tougher, Willpower has 3 layers built in, and Radiation carries large absorb shields. But I want to see how far we can take this chassis. While QoL is needed, serious AOE and Single Target Offense are not drivers - Id like enough to contribute, but this will be the third build on a 3 build character - existing builds take care of the need for exemplar, AOE, and Single Target duties. Build spoiler-ed below: Features: Resists (with 1 Proc of the Tanker ATO) 90%: S/L/E/N 61.2% F/C 52.2% T 55.79% Psi Defense: (with 1 foe in Invincibility Range) 48.2% S/L/F/C 46.4% E/N 23.8 Psi 26.3% Melee 25.4% Range 26.3% AOE (With invincibility saturated) 64.2% S/L/F/C 62.3% E/N Middling Debuff Resists, growing out of Invuln. Slotting takes Rchg and Run resists to 70% - would like to get that to 90, but I do not see where I would give things up. Unstoppable present for last-ditch emergency - Toxic or heavy F/C Void Radial - Damage Debuff Parlytic Radial - Damage Debuff Longbow Radial - Healing (healing was felt more valuable than an additional small DEF Buff) Rebirth Radial - Additional Healing Melee Core- Additional healing and res (With saturted Melee Core and a single ATO proc, secondary resists climb to 78% Toxic, 81% Psi, and 87% F/C - others overcap) QoL: Travel Power (Flight) plus Afterburner as well as one AOE and several fully slotted attacks. (These powers also provide useful set bonuses and mules, and even afterburner thus contributes. Futher, afterburner can be used to spike DEF to near incarnate softcap, even with 0 targets in range) Concerns/Roads not Taken: I fiddled with a 'layered survival clickies' approach involving Rune of Protection interleaved with the Rebirth (or Barrier!) and Melee, but I expect it will be more survivable if I am giving myself less opportunities to misclick Soul APP was considered for additional -Damage, but I felt the loss of the -RCHG resist IO in flight, as well as the additional RCHG lost with the Afterburner Mule slot, was not worth the price. Alternatively, Flight or Afterburner might be returned to that version at the cost of Unstoppable. - but see QoL concerns. Best alternate version might be to drop Unstoppable and Afterburner (accepting the loss of some recharge and psi resist) to pick up Soul Tentacles for an AOE Immob and Darkest Night for the -30% Damage - which SHOULD stack with the -DAM from Void and Paralytic to comfortable numbers Problem Situations look like they will be (as always) really PSI heavy elements - 26% Positionals and ~50% resist is not very good. On the other hand, psi damage is not all that common, as well as Toxic (even more vulnerable). I THINK Melee and Rebirth will carry me through those, but I am not certain - if anyone has more experience than me with what it takes to tank the sewers portion of Apex, please let me know! Im also (of course) concerned with debuffing, but I THINK the combination of very high resists and defenses will cut down on debuffs landing and causing cascade failures. All that said, Ageless -Debuff Resistance may be a backup option. So, in essence - what am I leaving cheap on the floor? Do you think the payback on dropping Unstoppable and Afterburner for (and their attendant RCHG and Psi Resist - the Afterburner Scaling Resist would relocate somewhere else, at the loss of a LOTG) is worth it to pick up Darkest Night, with its END Cost? What do you anticipate of the various endgame high-threat circumstances being a problem, that I have overlooked? Version 1 (As above) Version 2 (Darkest Night)
  4. Hi everyone, Like it says in the subject line. I've gotten this guy up to 32, and I figured I'd subject his build to a little "open review," let folks see if they think I missed anything. In big groups, my tactics are 1) Disintegrate, on the toughest target available. 2) Lancing shot to spread Disintegrate. 3) Refractor Beam. 3a) Cutting Beam, if and only if I'm positioned such that I can nab multiple guys with the cone; if I'm in the middle of a furball, forget it. 4) Piercing Beam. 4a) Mop up. The T1 and T2 are there really just for tagging stragglers, and for low-level exemplar availability. I just got Overcharge, and haven't yet figured out how/where to fit that in. (I suspect the answer is "Any time it's up and with great glee.") Defenses look like they'll be adequate. A touch under S/L resist cap, and typed defenses ranging from 35-40%. If anyone sees places to tighten this up a bit without drastically changing the build, I'm all ears.

  5. Need a level 50 build for a SM/Invul Brute. Not looking for a Billion INF build. Just want good power selection and slotting with some affordable sets. My travel power will be Fly. I have Pine's Hero Designer.
  6. I'm starting a new thread for potential changes to the Invulnerability powerset's Tier 9 power Unstoppable. There was a discussion on moving it to the T2 power here, something I strongly disagree with and I thought I'd pull out the ideas I had for changing it. I'm firmly of the opinion that all powers in a set should have a valid reason to be chosen and there should be tradeoffs for skipping one for another... that would seem to be even more true for the T9. As it stands now most Invuln characters skip Unstoppable since the crash is not worth the benefit. At best it forces you to wait out of combat for it to drop and you to recover from the crash, retoggle all your armors, recover HP and Endurance and then continue on. At worst, and most commonly, it causes you to hit the floor 3 minutes later and leaves your teammates to kill the mobs without you, then you'll need to rez, recover and retoggle. The concept of a severe crash is a relic of the early days of the game, newer powersets don't tend to have these drawbacks and even the thematic Blaster Nuke crash has gone the way of the dinosaur. We have the example of Shield for how a similar armor power can be beneficial without being a suicide switch. On it's own Shield is pretty comparable to Invuln in raw durability both at base levels and with an optimal IO build. One with the Shield however is a genuinely useful power for tight situations with a much lesser crash that with minimal attention doesn't detract greatly from the character's survivability. If I were redesigning Unstoppable to be a useful power in today's game I'd go about it something like this: 1. Drop the +Res from 70% down to around 15-20%. As it stands now the 70% +res is drastically overkill; it's utterly trivial to hard cap S/L by simply taking Tough and it's pretty easy to get E/N/F/C to 50% or above without extreme IO building. 2. Either leave the +Recovery as is or perhaps slightly reduce it. With all the +recovery IO's currently in the game this aspect isn't a huge deal. 3. Cut the HP and End crash down to 25%-50% range. 4. Leave the uptime and recharge as is, OR give it the One with the Shield treatment and make the recharge unenhanceable and set to double the power's duration. That way you get a truly useful emergency button that doesn't drastically over cap you and doesn't automatically kill you when it drops. This seems to me to be the easiest way to make it a usable power instead of one the vast majority of Invuln players skip. There have been suggestions for more exotic changes to the power but I'm reluctant to recommend them as that seems to open up room for unintended bugs, not to mention increased Dev time. My thoughts should just involve a minor tweak to the percentage values of the power in simply adjusting the buff numbers and the crash numbers. On my current build with CMA not having Unstoppable isn't a disaster by any means; he's certainly up for most any challenge with perhaps a dip into the inspiration tray in a pinch. It still bothers me that the ultimate power in the Invulnerability set is functionally near useless however. A player unable or unwilling to spend the amounts I did for an optimal IO build won't be able to approach that level however. I likely would modify my build to include it for a very select few encounters where I currently use inspirations to manage.
  7. This is the first time I've actually managed to sorta come up with a build in Mids, and I'm sure it's nowhere near "good". I'll gladly take any criticism and/or help! I'm trying to go for decent ST and AoE (as in I'm not looking for really good ST or AoE, especially not if it means sacrificing the other), good enough survival for soloing content (I'd love +4/x8, but it doesn't have to be that). I'd rather not do fly/hover. I'm not married to psi mastery as epic, mostly picked it cuz I saw it recommended somewhere (to fill the psi defense hole, and as a LotG mule?), totally open to suggestions there. If anything seems off, it probably is, feel free to point it out. 😄 Here goes: (A) Run Speed IO (A) Numina's Convalesence - +Regeneration/+Recovery (40) Numina's Convalesence - Heal (A) Jumping IO (A) Performance Shifter - Chance for +End Level 50: Vorpal Radial Final Judgement Level 50: Reactive Core Flawless Interface Level 50: Ageless Core Epiphany Level 50: Assault Core Embodiment ------------

    Inv/MA Tank

    Is an Invulnerability/Martial Arts combo any good? Are there any good builds out there? Cost doesn't matter. Searched and found 1 or 2 builds...one of them doesn't open. It doesn't seem to be a popular combo.
  9. I want to remake one of my old toons to play the game the long way. Captain Yesterday. He was a regen scrapper, back when they could hardly be killed. After the nerf, toast, and I left live shortly thereafter. I want to remake him as either a soft capped invl/ma tank or a soft capped willpower/ma tank. I just got into the meta of the game, and with numbers visible it all makes more sense. But I am no maestro. I'm looking to play smooth to 50, hold aggro, and not go down. I heard willpower sucks for aggro. But i was considering it because it has the of "regen lite" and I wont be sucking wind going full out attack. Hi I've seen the softcapped invulnerable build tricked out at a cost of 800 mil. I was wondering 2 things. After reading the forums and looking at builds, I am currently under the impression You can't possibly get a willpower to the soft cap for all defense and all resists. Second is there any master craftsman out there who can toss me a build? Go nuts with the money, the first thing I did when I logged back in to COH was research ways to make money, cause I didn't want to be a broke bum anymore.
  10. Hello fellow heroes! I'm returning from sunset with my first lvl 50 in homecoming. I am going for a theme that requires Flight as a travel power and using the power Laser Beam Eyes. l'd also prefer to not use stealth, as it'll effect appearance. But if i have to then I have to. All other options are on the table. The goal is to main this character only all the way through all the end game content. Soft def cap, high to-hit, end stable, etc. I will get into incarnates, but I don't have any of those powers yet. I found this build some where on the forums (so credit to whoever it is due to, but sorry i lost track). It is VERY close, but it doesn't use laser beam eyes. If it is possible to fix, then it would seem i don't have the IO set knowledge to do so. Thanx in advance!

  11. 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.
