Beam / Electric steambot


Recommended Posts

Hi folks


So my next toon is a Beam Rifle / Electric steampunk bot and I'm enjoying him so far. Early 20s and quite enjoy trying to paint everything with Disintegration and the Opportunity debuffs. Build-wise though I'm kinda stuck. Capped Smashing & Lethal (and Energy obviously) and tried to get Defense but only hitting 25-29%. Anyone got any suggestions?


(Normal Carni rules apply, no swathes of purples and no Winters Sets cos I can't afford them. At the same time this looks like one character who was made for the +Resist and +Defense the Winters grant but I can't afford it, have to keep all my babies slotted up). Feel free to remove and add things as you like other than that, even to the point of dropping a Travel power, I don't mind that with Rocket Packs and p2w runs being available, but no Psi Epic because it makes no thematic sense for this character

@Carnifax, this is pretty much how you do it on a bunch of self imposed limitations.  

Some folks may not like Refractor with loads of procs, but it is really damn effective.  I just glanced over the build and there was nothing really glaring to me to change.

Yeah the Beam bit was lifted from Frostweavers thread. Normally id go for Ranged Def to back it up but its not easy to build for in Resist sets. 


Even on an imaginary "money is no object" build I wasnt really getting too much extra from multiple Winters sets, other than Fire/Cold resists.
