  1. So once again I'm back optimizing my build starting from scratch! My last Dark/Shield Scrapper Murcielago was amazing and hopefully in a few years I'll have him back to that level. Below is the building I will be working towards again. | Copy & Paste this data into Mids' Hero Designer to view the build | |-------------------------------------------------------------------| |MxDz;1521;675;1350;HEX;| |78DA6593D972124114867B6030B207B210CC02C444B6640093AA688C5AA5182B115| |228D13B2B4EA00D9414500329934B5FC1F50534EA8D0FA4CFE072EF321EE7FC20CA| |14D4D77DF673BABB7894F77CB8F9E4AA507CD71B
  2. Looking for assistance on a decent budget WM/SD build, I am not overly good at making builds. Thanks for the help.
  3. I am working on a Dark/Shield Brute and I saw two builds on here and wondered what people thought of em'. I was thinkin' of using one of em.
  4. A few days ago I had an idea for a toon that popped into my head as I was looking at making a new toon with a power set that I hadn't played. Well I've played quite a bit of shield defense as has just about everyone as we all know it's great with positional defense, extra hp, more damage, decent ddr. Now the kicker, having played since Beta back in 2004, I had never tried Stone Melee. Maybe at the time it was unappealing or I was told it was super endurance heavy or put off by more smashing damage, I'm not sure. So since I had never tried it I decided to give it a whirl.
  5. At least on tanker, I am unsure about the other AT Shield Defense sets. Activating the pool power -Tough- while having the Flex customization option selected while your shield is out plays the original tough animation and sounds, rather than the flex animation. Bellow, I posted a screenshot of my character with the flex option selected in costume creator, using Tough.
  6. Hi All, I was just wondering if anyone who is experienced in builds; as I'm not the best, could have a look at my farming build for my Elec/Shield Scrapper and give me some advice please? I'm currently farming in AE on a Comic Con S&L map at +4 x8. Solo it is not an issue at all, but when I am levelling friends etc and there are multiple bosses, I become quite squishy (Inspirations needed) when 'One with the Shield' is not active. I Have tried fiddling about with my build on Mids/Pines and cant see a way of increasing my resistance to S&L without compromising ot
  7. Hi there, So I've got this Tanker up to 47, and honestly so far she's performing like a dream. She's a little heavy on endurance usage, but I know that can be fixed either with my Alpha slot or when I start getting more heavily invested into Invention Sets. The one thing about which I would really like to get some feedback, is the placement of the "special" Sets in this build. By that, in this context I specifically mean the tanker AT sets and the Winter sets. if anyone has any feedback on where and how to place those particular sets in this build, I'm all ears.
  8. Not looking some super IO'd Apex build as I'm not trying to solo GMs and AVs. I like teaming, and I just want to perform well in level 25-45 content. Would like to stay mostly in the powers in the set, Super Jump would be my travel power. Don't need perma-hasten if it requires sacrificing fun powers for Pool Powers to mule LotG. Basically just something better than Workbench IOs without going crazy.
  9. I like going into a fresh character with a blue print. I don't yet feel confident enough in Mids to pull something together from scratch. I've seen advice and build discussions about Savage Melee and about Shield, but always separately. I could just pluck what I want from each, which I plan to do when I have some experience with the toon. If anyone has played this combo and would like to share their build with me, please do. Or if you've played part of the combo and your Mids-fu is strong, I'd be overjoyed if you took the time to share your wisdom with me or even to make something I could go o
  10. Working on this build, she's level 39 now. Looking for any suggestions. Since, I got really good feedback on my ice/ninja thread. Pros: Against All Odds, damage bonus. All the usual benefits of the less resisted cold damage. Nasty AOE chain BU->SC->FA->Frost->AS->FA. It's not elec/sd, but it's an excellent balance of ST and AOE. Soft capped with hide suppressed for melee and ranged, but not AOE. See below. Lots of recharge possible with Force Feedback in Shield Charge. Cons: AOE is not soft capped with hide suppressed. A
  11. Just for general purpose tanking. I've heard about each of these sets being great, but haven't seen much in the way of commentary about the two of them combined, at least for Tankers.
  12. I have a Elec/SD toon right now that i love for general content, but i cant help but think SS/SD would be super fun. Anyone have any opinions on which is stronger and why?!?
  13. Hi all, For the that few months I have been working on and off on a little side project to complete every story arc, TF and Trail in the game on one character. As a lot of this will be done solo, I went for a scrapper, Psi/SD to be exact. As the project means merits and inf are pretty free flowing I thought I would try and min/max the build. Aiming for M/R/A soft-cap def, perma hasten, decent AOE and ST damage with decent Stamina management. My current build below hits most of these, but I cannot help feeling that I am missing something. It has been years since I pushed an SD scr
  14. Started a new tanker and got her in reach of Posi on Torchbearer yesterday. Shield/Fire, this is an offense oriented build. At any rate, this is her wishlist build. Remembering now that Shield is full of powers that don't need slots. Astonished that someone had already claimed the name 'Vanth'.

  16. Hello, I am attempting my first Tanker, Shield Dark Melee. Is this build good for a Tanker? I need to meet 45% softcap for S/L and E/N correct? Any help will be very appreciative, thank you.
