I've been playing a Rad/Rad Defender for a few months and I've been loving it! I want to maximize the build but putting together builds is something I've never been very good at. I've put together a "Hypothetical Build" but I'm not sure how to cap my defenses and have plenty of recharge and on top of that manage my endurance, any help or advice would be much appreciated! I really want this toon to be the very best it can!

 

Here is what I have so far!

My main was a rad/rad defender back in the day, and was my first to 50 on Homecoming.  I find it a great combo, because you can stand in your own debuffs and fire off your AoEs.  Cones with the toggle debuffs can be a pain, because some mobs run out of the debuffs to get to you.  A rad defender is also one of the best support characters in the game when you are exemping down for low level content like a Posi TF, I try to make sure I have inviso + Recall Friend even down there.  

 

I did not particularly worry about capping defenses, only 33.8% ranged, but if you are in your own debuffs against anything but AVs Radiation Infection has their tohit floored.  Against AVs I team, or use a small purple to soft cap.  The focus was getting the combination of Accelerate Metabolism and Hasten perma (needs about 75% global recharge), and having a wide variety of team support powers.  At times I've used debuffs on one spawn, EM Pulse on another, and Mass Hypnosis on a third when the team was getting overwhelmed.   At low levels on harder content, I may run Choking Cloud for additional mitigation, in Radiation Infection it can get most of a spawn held pretty quickly, and keep them that way.  If you have Accelerate Metabolism perma, you should never run out of End on a team, I sometimes forget to turn off Superspeed and Sprint while fighting. 🙂  

 

I took Psychic Mastery because I can proc up Dominate to be another snipe level attack, and I've prevented additional spawns from wiping the team with Mass Hypnosis.  That can also work for clicking glowies when stealthing if a spawn is too close.  If you really want self defenses, you have to drop some team support powers to get Weave in the fighting pool, or sacrifice a fair amount of recharge to get defense.  Once I have Clarion T3 for perma mezz protection, though, this character can handle pretty tough content, if I took Aim + Atomic Blast probably even more.  

 

This build could potentially be improved with some of the new IO sets, there is a EndMod one that provides both some recharge and ranged defense, and Artillery, a targeted AoE one, gives very good ranged defense.
