SS/Inv Brute what to slot for Alpha?


Recommended Posts

My personal philosophy on Incarnate slots are always to shore  up any weaknesses in your build. Cardio is a good choice if you struggle with sustain and can't fix it with IOs.

Frostbiter - Ice/Ice Blaster

Throneblade - Broadsword/Dark Armor Brute

SS/Inv. Brute - struggle quite a bit with endurance sustain so thinking about going with Cardiac to help with that. Anyone know what's best to slot?

I had similar issues on my Dominator so I went with T3 Cardiac. Then after I eventually got T3 Destiny Ageless for extra recovery I switched my Alpha to Musculature for the extra damage.

My Inv/SS Tanker has virtually no end problems, and all it took was two 50+5 End Mods and a Perf Shifter Proc in Stamina, Miracle, Numina, and Panacea uniques in Health, Physical Perfection with a Perf Shifter proc, and expensive IOs in all my attacks and toggles for 40-60% end reduction. Nothing major! 😁

What did you choose for your Alpha?

I went Musculature on my Inv/SS mostly because there was not very much more, before cap that could be added to his Resists/Defense, but a chance to get the tier 4 damage increase was irresistible.


Tier 4 Musculature has sped me up a bit in getting thru Mobs.,I also went with Support in the Hybrid and Barrier in the Destiny, both work good with groups and affect pets. The Lore slot got the IDF, and am really liking them, ( am at Tier 3 ). Interface I went with Paralytic for the Debuff Proc and Judgement I took Vorpal, that finally gives me another AoE Attack to warm up a crowd ( Literally about wipe them out actually ).

it's just right for me..."

( Unless it's Raining, or Cold, or Really Dirty

or there are Sappers, Man I hate those Guys...)

If you're chasing Accolades, and you're basically:

Health: Panacea Unique, Numina Unique, Miracle Unique
Stamina: Perf Shifter: Proc, Perf Shifter: EndMod (OPTIONAL: Generic EndMod)

You shouldn't be having massive Endurance issues unless something strange is going on in your build.

If you're building towards Soft-Cap Defense and maximum Resists, Agility should be fine, ESPECIALLY once you hit T4.
If you're having Endurance issues with an optioned-out build, Cardiac should be cool.
