I’ve leveled a Beasts/Sonic up to 33 and with the +resist/defence pet enhancements they are very durable.

 

I also get away with using the attack command to initiate combat. The pets can handle the alpha. Beasts buff their own defense and that stacks well with the added resistance from /sonic.  Necro may not do as well taking the aggro without the added defense. 
 

I think it would be a fun combo to try.

I leveled up a Necro/Thermal up to 30's and nope you aren't crazy. Same concept really, the pets get great resistance out of the box. And it only get's better. Zombies self-heal and the Lich is a great controller. So that can help make up in some areas sonic lacks. Plus Disruption Field should work well with the Grave Knights. 

 

I could see coloring the sonic powers a sickly green and going with undead Banshee theme.

My Necro/Sonic is a banshee.  🙂

 

It's a killer combination in my opinion.  Really high RES on pets and eventually on the MM as well.  Plus Sonic is so useful to a team even without considering the pets.

By the time you get to 50 with the pet Resistance IO's Sonic can get 35% Resistance from three unique pet IOs:

 

10% Sovereign Right

10% Expedient Reinforcement

15% Superior Mark of Supremacy

------------------------------

35% Resistance for pets.

 

Sonic Shields fully slotted at lvl 50:

 

23%  Barrier/Haven

17%  Sonic Dispersion

-------------------------------

40% Total Resistance for pets/teammates

 

--------------------------------

Together that's 75% Resistance for your pets.

 

If you choose an Alpha that boosts Resistance like Cardiac or Resilient you can increase that further up to another 8.5% for pets, to a total of around 83.5% for pets.    That's almost to the 90% hard cap Resistance even without any inherent resistance from the pets themselves.

 

Necro's inherent Resistance is:

 

25% Smash/Cold/Negative/Toxic/Psionic for Zombies (T1)

26% Cold/Negative/Toxic for Grave Knights and Lich (T2,T3)

 

 

So they can hit 90% hard cap resistance to those damage types even while leveling before they can slot the Superior ATO's they get access to at level 50. 

 

 

Sonic also has some good -Res and aoe Mezz Protection.    Any pets with a heal like Necro, Demons, or even Bots and Mercs fill in for lack of heal in the Sonic set.    For the MM themself, I like @Ironscarlet's idea of using the Chill Mastery Epic since Hoarfrost and Frozen Armor give you a self-heal, and Def that Sonic is missing, plus a big max HP buff to get the most out of your resistance.    Then you can pick up aoe Regen from Destiny Rebirth and likely have a very sturdy MM build.      Also, since Resistance doesn't have a softcap mechanic, I suspect that fully IO'ed teammates are more likely to benefit from Resistance buffs, than they are from Def buffs.      

 

Sonic seems undervalued given all it can offer.   If I were putting together a MM superteam, I'd definitely want one Sonic.

That's what I did with mine lol. Also yeah it's a very solid combo. The sets themselves though do have some gripes. I'll post how sonic could use some improvements in another thread, but necro, the soul extraction could use some help. It's mainly for an IO mule, but it's rech is a bit long, and mostly cause you have to use it on a dead pet is the issue. Should just be self-castable, and it's only a couple single target attacks. They should change it to more of a dark armor tanker with death shroud, cloak of fear, siphon life, and shadow maul or something.

 

The pet IOs are a PAIN to figure out but i spent hours on it so i'll post the build lol. Also the knockdown proc in the zombie minnions helps a TON. I guess yeah too though, sonic should have liquefy's recharge easily a 2 minute base rech. It's a good power, but sonic doesn't have that much else going for it overall really. Just like a two trick pony, but it works with Necro. Sonic cage should also be made a single target hold (even mag 4 to give sonic extra flare). Considering that you need almost half as much defense for the same mitigation, also always felt like sonic shields should have higher values, 20% instead of 15% base, and 25 or 30% base for defenders. and then 15% base for dispersion. Also, the Lich, they "mostly" made him ranged for his ai, but i do often notice him going into about 10ft of melee which is still too close. They need to fix his minimum range to be 25ft. Since his tentacles are his shortest ranged power, that would put him at the perfect minimum distance to hit the most enemies in the mob. Unless they widen the cones he has, he should never go as close as 25ft, definitely not 10ft.

 

I go back and forth on the kb-kd proc in sonic repulsion as well. Its good but NOISY and you constantly see "miss" for some reason when it's on the melee if it has that kb-kd proc in it. Without that proc, it's actually pretty useful to put on the lich, so any enemy that goes near him from the mob generally gets knocked back into the mob. With that knockdown proc from overwhelming force in the minnion zombies, it's not *as* needed to have that proc in sonic  repulsion.

 

In this build also, i'm moving night fall to 35 and vengeance later. I love it, but you REALLY miss that aoe that necro doesn't have like the other sets do, especially to start the fights to take the alpha to help keep the pets alive, or to just do more -to hit on the mobs and damage. I don't get why either, but soul tentacles is missing it's -to hit for some reason which I'm imagining is a bug. It should also have a 30 degree cone not 25 degrees, but still really good to get.

I specced out of Sonic Repulsion because the noise was so annoying, and not just to me but to teammates.  

 

Liquify's recharge is a complete mystery to me.  Completely out of whack.

Sonic repulsion also seems bugged at the moment. It's constantly showing "miss"es. And it is noticeably less knockdowns than repel or repulsion field from kinetics and FF when you put the kb-kd proc in them. If those misses knocked them down instead it would be the right amount of knockdown. Regardless they really need to remove the end per enemy hit and lower the end cost on those powers either way.

Interesting.  I never thought about trying this combo.

So endurance looks pretty bad on both builds - the 2nd build looks rough even with Cardiac (which also grants more resist.)  I can't imagine using attacks a ton with so much recharge because of the endurance drain running all that.  Recharge on a necro/sonic doesn't seem like it should be a priority.  Would it be better to just dump all the protection procs on Soul Extraction?  I've seen that done on Thugs/Demons and so on.

 

Combat Jumping, Disruption Field, Sonic Dispersion, Maneuvers, Tactics, Sonic Repulsion, Dark Embrace, and the Hasten end drain is a lot.  Then again I've argued the MM end penalties really don't make sense in real play.  This sounds like a fun combo and it's different which I like - but it doesn't seem sustainable at least not in the 2nd build here.

Just skip sonic repulsion. It sounds good on paper. It's really good early on to make you feel like you're doing something helpful. But it annoys everyone, isn't as effective as it might seem, and just clutters your screen with misses and end drain.

Yeah I don't get the misses, isn't it supposed to be autohit?  is it pulsing too fast?

Just skip sonic repulsion. It sounds good on paper. It's really good early on to make you feel like you're doing something helpful. But it annoys everyone, isn't as effective as it might seem, and just clutters your screen with misses and end drain. 

 

 

 

It has a fast recharge... can't you just put a FF and a KB to KD IO in it, and when you have a pet in the middle of the mobs activate it, then once it's knocked down the enemies around the pet, turn it off so you don't get your End drained? And you can do that again just a few seconds later. Or doesn't that work as well as it seems like it should? Running it all the time definitely seems like an End killer, but turning it on at the start of a fight to get a few seconds of free attacking seems like it may be worth the 10-15 End that it will cost to knock everyone in the area down.

it has an accuracy check (it must I assume

as it procs like crazy pre-4x8) despite not taking enhancements so it’s just missed more than anything. The end drain isn’t actually all that bad, but you’re not getting a whole lot out of it for the end it takes. It’s just lackluster at the end of the day. Especially on Mm where the recharge isn’t as useful as say on a corruptor/defender from FF. Usually 3 slot with end redux, ff, and KD. 

 

Sonic is my favorite set since it was released- I do a LOT of Sonics (4 cor, 2 defs, 2 controllers, 1 mm) and most have it, but I think for a MM it doesn’t do enough. It can make a scrapper a better tank though. i do like FF too lol
