Help with Water/Temporal


Temerity

Recommended Posts

So I've got a Water/Time blaster that is level 50 with my incarnate stuff at T3 level, but I'm still playing with mostly generic IOs.  I'd really like to fill out the build with some sets to make me more durable for solo content or on teams where there is little to no support.  So far I've taken to the mentality that more damage is the best defense... so I've gone with reactive interface, musculature alpha, and assault hybrid.  I've seen some other threads where they have fire farm builds posted, but I'd like something more universally useful against more damage types than just fire.  I'm on a bit of a budget, but I'd like to build towards purple sets as I'm able to afford them.  Here's what I'm currently working with:

Any help would be appreciated, I'd like to keep the power pools selected, unless a compelling argument against them can be made.

I too am on the hunt for a good non-farming water/time build. my guy is only 25 atm but I like to plan ahead. I'm about to spend time on Mids and maybe I'll post what I come up with if I'm satisfied.

I thought I'd offer thoughts/tips tho. I'm no pro but I do play a lot :)

 

  • As a blaster with good aoe you can easily melt away minions and often lts too. For that reason I think Melt Armor is of very little use in this build (plus it's recharge is long).
  • Time Shift is a little more useful but really just as an "oh sh**" power.  
  • A celerity stealth in SS = invis. I'd say that makes Stealth useless but having a spot for a LotG recharge is allways usefull.
  • Bonfire? I get it, it's super fun with the kb to kd IO in it. I think you're good on aoe tho (plus thematically it makes no sense 8) )
  • I allways go Def>Res when Setting. I'll make S/L a priority and Energy next because a lot of endgame has energy.
  • Because of above point I'll be going Mace mastery and most likely just getting Scorp Sheild. I know you're pretty set on fire but I had to say.
  • If you are set on fire I would recommend Char and picking up Time Stop. If a boss gets in your face (as they do) you can pretty quickly hold them. Slotting for damage procs they can do decent damage too.

Water Blast has great ST and AOE damage and we probably don't need any of the mele range stuff from the secondary. I'm still a lowbie and need to see how it feels, but I'm guessing I'll end up getting Future Pain, with procs it should do great damage and help me with those Bosses that get too close. End of Time I'm not sure if I'm gonna get, maybe if I have room for an "oh sh**" power.

 

I'm off to work on a build, hope this helps you, it's my 1st post!! 🙃

I made a budget build first. Managed to get S/L def to 41% and Energy to 42%. The expensive build will softcap those

My first pass at an expensive build. S/L def softcapped, nrg at 43.5% (i had it capped but sacrificed some for a major boost to fire/cold)

Got Hasten down to 7.4 seconds down. Not sure if Chronos makes it perma or not.

I appreciate the input and I'm sure that build will work for you.  One thing to note though, speaking from someone who has spent hundreds of hours on his character, Temporal Healing is your bread and butter and you absolutely need to use it for endurance recovery and the absorb effect.  I've had that six slotted from the onset and would not have it any other way.  I prefer to hover around the battlefield and destroy from range.  Stealth is a LotG mule and I stack with +stealth in hover to grant me full invisibility.  I may have to swap that for leadership though and just swap to SS when I need to stealth.  I like having melt armor for incarnate content and AVs, though arguably I don't use it very often.  Bonfire is a survival tool that is quite unique in it's ability to shut down an entire group when used with a corner or a bottleneck.  I wish fire shield was defense instead of resistance...

 

I might have to sacrifice how I'm used to playing a little in order to min/max.

Right on, yea I absolutely need to put in the hours to decide on a final build. I do have a lot of recovery in the sets but yea, it might not be enough. 

 

This is my first character that is hoverblasting and I'm awkward but getting better. Makes me think tho, maybe just go for ranged defense. There are plenty of less expensive sets that offer it. 


Also I noticed Time Stop has -regen and I wonder if it might be more usefull against AVs than MA. I'm really not sure.

 

Anywhoo, happy splashing! I love water so far

I've been playing around with some sets in order to boost my damage through procs, while going for some useful bonuses like +max HP, Recovery, Recharge, Damage, and ranged defense, since I mostly hoverblast.  As previously mentioned, I'm not great at seeking out these bonuses and maxing or capping.  I don't even know if something like softcapping defense would be possible without totally scrapping my build.
