Not bad. I'd grab the last few percentage points to get to 59%+ defense to all. Mostly meaningless in regular content, but it'll make a big difference in incarnate content, and one of the big advantages of Super Reflexes in my mind is how easily it can incarnate soft cap.


The smashing/lethal resistance is quite impressive, but I'd spread the love around to other damage types. Even if you care most about smashing/lethal, you're going to hit the hard cap if you're even a little bit injured, and the rest is wasted. I'm a fan of Melee Core on Super Reflexes, but I feel having such a high base smashing/lethal resistance combined with the scaling resists wastes much of the benefit of Melee Core. 


I'd need to do too much math, but I'm guessing you won't need the endurance from Ageless and might benefit more from a different Destiny pick. I'd probably go with Rebirth Radial to make up the the lack of healing in the build. I'd probably do that even if it requires an extra slot or two or three devoted to endurance recovery, because healing is such a core part of overall survivability. But I know once momentum gets going, Titan Weapons can burn a lot of endurance fast, so it's possible I'm leading you astray. You do need some way to get hit points back, though, and some moderate regeneration isn't what I'd consider sufficient.


I'd find room for Unbreakable Guard +7.5% max hit points. I'd probably also try to get more hit point set bonuses. Not the highest priority by any means, but another layer in your layered survivability.


With knockback protection of 10 and knockback resistance of 10,000%, I wouldn't bother with Blessing of the Zephyr. And without the need for that, I wouldn't personally even take Super Jump, and would take maybe Assault or Tactics? Not sure what I'd take. And most people don't want to give up their travel powers, even with the ability to use rocket packs forever for almost free.


I always stick Celerity +stealth in Sprint so that I have a stealth power for those rare occasions I'm not Scrapperlocked.


Only semi-relevant since she's neither Titan Weapons nor a Scrapper, but I'll post my planned SJ/SR Brute build to give an idea of what I've prioritized and how I got there - 59% defense, much lower base smashing/lethal resistance, slightly lower toxic/psionic, but much higher energy/negative and fire/cold. A lot more hit point and regeneration bonuses. Scrapper is a little tougher to pull the survivability off with, but a TW/SR Scrapper is going to do a boatload more damage - a good trade. I'll eventually slot out my TW/Bio Scrapper to fill that role in my stable of heroes. Well, my Super Strength/Fire Brute does a boatload of damage as well, but nothing too impressive single target.

WoW i feel super lucky cause i don't like StJ!! You know that if you post a build an altaholic will have to try it.. 😛 My bad i didn't say that i do normal PvE at 50+ ( ITF, farms and PI missions). With that number of alts i said to myself that this will be my end game content so i won't go crazy mentally. I always go with Ageless because i feel that it's the safe choice, never actually tried something else in Destiny and i think for TW is a must. I went all in for S/L resists in case of doing S/L farms at 50, want to compare this toon with my Controller farmer.  

(damn it, now i wanna check that StJ brute)

I think the difficulty on S/L farms will be the 75% resistance cap and lack of healing, but it'll probably do pretty good. I'm curious to hear.


I can't tell you how the SJ/SR Brute build plays in practice since I'm only level 32 on her. She's regular soft capped at that point and able to be team tank other than her poor aggro control, so... not that great a team tank. Her damage output is sad at that level, too. Admittedly I'm comparing it to her regular teammates - a Blaster and a Mastermind. And hopefully it'll be better once she has her end-game chain up and running (Shin Breaker -> Rib Cracker -> Heavy Blow -> Shin Breaker -> Rib Cracker -> Crushing Uppercut).

I tried StJ 2 times in the past, couldn't like it. I'm a huge AoE fan so i doubt that i ever like it. My Plant/Dark controller can easily farm S/L without healing but Seed of confusion is the reason i guess plus he is above the cap in all defenses and has 75% S/L resistance. I hope to finish this build though cause i'm only lvl 38 and got a bit bored with TW :classic_tongue:
