  1. 1. Which melee AT/powerset combination gives the most versatility in PvP

    • Radiation Melee/Bio Armor Scrapper
    • Super Strength/Bio Armor Brute
    • Can't go wrong with either.
    • Bio Armor is for nancies!! Use Willpower!!
    • Eskimo Accolade

I'm still new to the PvP game and wanna learn the ropes about what to do.


So far, I've looking into rolling Bio Armor as a secondary and two power combinations really catch my eye. The first one is the Radiation/Bio Armor scrapper as a choice because I kinda like how the primary works in general. The second one is SS/Bio Armor Brute. I have a lot of experience playing brutes, tankers, and sentinels. The second one feels familiar to me, but that's mostly because I'm accustomed to SS as a melee power.

If you're gonna go the Bio route I'd probably do it on a Tanker because of their higher values and higher HP pool.

I've decided to roll a Rad/Bio brute to try something different. Sadly, the numbers didn't go the way I expected them to and some of the numbers seem a little wonky.

For a quick glance, this looks more for PVE than PVP.  Doesn't look like you used any PVP IOs which are a big deal. Plus your attacks aren't slotted with procs which will deal a lot of your damage.


I know my info isn't helpful without a build to supply, but I don't have mids on a work computer. I'd check out the PVP discord for some help.
