Fire/EM Blaster Help

Recommended Posts

Good day, I made a build for my Fire/EM Blaster and im looking for advice. This build will be for RV and 1v1's. Should I take misdirection over phase shift, and if there are other ways to make it better, let me know. Also, what incarnates would be best for this toon? thank you!

Overall this build looks pretty good, but there are some things that could be made more optimal:

 

 - nophase makes having both phase and hiber pretty redundant. but regardless of that i think youll find this build to be quite squishy compared to other blasters because defence armours kind of suck for non-melee toons, really you either want to go phase + an ancillary with a res armour, or go hiber + tough (for blasters, other squishies can get hiber through leviathan mastery and have both a res shield and hiber). if you do go for a res shield mastery i would probably go fire so you can proc out char for another hard hitting attack

 - you seem to have build for damage bonus a little bit at the expense of some health, im my opinion getting closer to the hp cap will serve you better in most fights (especially because damage bonus gets dr'd, so itll do almost nothing when you pop aim or build up). if you did want to go for a damage bonus build, i would aim to get closer to 40% or more from set bonuses while having around 1750 hp or so, at the moment you are in a bit of a half-way house.

 - the current meta for zone is very much based around jaunt for chasing as well as escaping (though not so much for 1v1's), especially as a /em where you can out-jaunt anyone with boost range. so i would try to get some more recharge and drop hasten in order to pick up speed of sound.

 - the preventive medicine proc is rather unique in that it works the same way no matter where its slotted, so you can slave a slot by sticking it in hibernate

 - kb protection is very much not worth anything in 1v1's, but its also rare to see people knocking people back in zone. you could drop some slots from kb protection io's if you wanted to (a good target to get is 41 though, which you hit so this is all very much preference)

 - having said that, because very few people bring kb, and so very few people slot for it, you can slot power thrust for kb and get some easy kills just from that. also its really, really funny

 - it is a time honoured tradition that you arent a real /em blaster without taking total focus, one must assert dominance with the 3 second animation to earn respect

 

something like this for a hiber variant of the build perhaps:

if you decide to drop some kb protection i would definitely aim to get more recharge. slotting brawl with hecatombs is an easy 10% but there maybe be better ways to get more without comprimsing. i'll leave the char version of the build to you, though i suspect it would be a bit stronger all things considered

 

as for incarnates, it seems you are using the correct ones already in that build. intuition is always good, double hit hybrid is definitely the way to go, pyronic is op, degenerative vs reactive is largely preference but i think degen is stronger.

 

the main debate will be which destiny to take, rebirth is definitely the safer play and more used in 1v1's, but in rv there are a lot of people who use incandescence with t3 green inspirations to be basically unkillable. which is better depends on how much effort you want to spend into restocking on greens a lot

Something to note with fire blast, it has two "good" attacks.  Blaze and blazing bolt, both are honestly only okay and can't take a lot of procs.  The problem you are going to run into is your damage will fall off really hard outside of those two.  Most fire blasters will either run char or /plant to add in another 1 or 2 attacks that can hit really hard with procs.

Right. I do notice this while playing. I may make a variant using phase shift instead so that I can grab char, but for now, i like having the extra heal. Thanks for the input!!
