Anyone running Petless / Semi-petless masterminds @ 50 ?

Recommended Posts

I was looking to run an ITF or something similar with players who have petless or semi petless ( usually last pet ) masterminds. 

I have a bunch but run solo on them not to hear any slack.

All are defense capped to some degree and have incarnates.

All can run 3/8 setting.

 

I think Many of the petless masterminds would be whips as that is unique set.

 

But just getting a feel on this if its even doable.

I have a whip/storm MM, but only at level 27 at the moment.  I'd be willing to give it a try, but I'll need to gain some levels before I could manage it.

It's been discussed a few times here over the past few months: I'm sure you can find some of the previous posts on the subject.  I think a couple of them even included a Mid's build or two.

Because say, you just want to use the bird attacks out of the animal mastery sets because of your character conception - for example.

Tbf, this might be better done as a Savage Assault Dominator, but then you lose the ability to ever have the various pets at all.

Why would someone want to do this?

Why do people solo TFs at +4/x8, or turn off inspirations, or run on SOs only?

To get the feeling of challenge and accomplishment back, that the game itself has lost long ago.

But if I do that, I lose the bird attack powers - which was my point in the post.

You actually keep the bird attacks. Unkindness (Ravens) is at level 10 (although the animation is a bit different), Call Hawk at 35 (which is a bit late, and then has a 14 second recharge).

 

Not exactly the same, but I thought it might be helpful to point out.

Masterminds have a base hp of 803 and low damage. Is the whip really that appealing to people where they would gimp themselves for three attacks that hardly does any damage?

Yes. I now have a whip/rad MM at 38. Cuz masterminds suck but I need at least 1 of every AT fully T4ed/Enhanced.


Harm no other and do as ye will. It ain't rocket surgery.

I made a petless Demon/Time MM. It isn't horrible. I built for +Def, +HP and +Dam. It doesn't die, but takes a hot minute to kill things. Fun experiment, but not going to replace my Blasters, Brutes or Fort.

Amazing how people get annoyed and express their concept for the idea. Funny

I have a Pain Domination MM, respecced her for the whip animations, still leveling her (36 ATM).

 

Would really like a whip-based power set, the whip powers I already have look awesome, and I'd love to have a full set of them.

 

I find demons to be too fragile  and they don't scale against mobs at +4, they just flail ineffectually.

 

So I use just the whip, magic subset for ranged attacks, defence and flight and when I really need a hench-thing, I call the demon prince. He at least looks impressive.

I almost wanna laugh, but the pain of disappointment subsides harder.
