Earth/Nature Controller?


Recommended Posts

It's a solid combo.  One of my first 50's after playing Homecoming.  It's a great control/debuff/sustain healing set.  It's made for more longer fights (AV, GM) with how long it takes to get some of its key powers out.  Not that you don't bring anything to short fights.  You will always have a power to disrupt trash mobs to help your team out (one mob you use EQ to shake things up, the next use Stalagmites and Stone cages to keep things tight in stunned).  Meanwhile you are laying down Lifegiving Spores to top off the team each fight and Spore Cloud to debuff.


This is combo shines bright in a team environment more so the solo just to let you know.  I would take everything except Stone Prison, Salt Crystals and Rebirth.  Also stone mastery for your epic PP as not only it fits the theme but has good powers in fissure, Seismic Smash (which is a great damage plus a hold mag 4 power), Stone Armour and Earth's Embrace.


Here is a rough power list for a example.  Have fun!

I think Earth/Nature is great CC/support combo. Earth also has Earthquake, which can be slotted with Force Feedback, which lowers recharge. If you can work in another FF power or two like Wall of Force and Project Will, it will go a long way to lower the recharge on Haste and Overgrowth. @Coyote's Earth/Cold build is probably a good starting point. Without /Cold's Infrigidate for single target, I expect you'd keep Stone Prison in.

Actually, secondaries other than /Cold get more out of Force of Will, because they don't have Infrigidate to run a constant Achilles Heel debuff on an AV. So they actually have a use for Weaken Resolve slotted with damage procs and Achilles. As you say, they will probably take the single-target Immobilize (Stone Prison, in this case) to make up for losing Project Will, and swap Project Will to Weaken Resolve. And it should work well with Nature because Nature likes to play at cone range from the spawn anyhow to heal everyone, so you're already at the right range for Wall of Force.
