You can put Chance for -Res Debuff Procs in practically all your crab attacks.


I highly recommend this. It turns you from an AoE Tanky Pet Mind to an AoE Face Melting Tanky Pet Mind.


The -Res Debuffs stack with the -Def debuffs inherent in your attacks, which even while solo will make life easier for you and your pets. In a team, especially if you aim your grenades and suppression well, it allows you to debuff entire spawns as part of your attack chain.


I'm also a fan of the KB > KD proc in Frag Grenade, but that may just be me. KB soft controlling is a useful skill and can be fun.

Kind Regards,

Does each Achilles proc individually or does it go into a global cool down across all that are slotted?




Everything I have read and know tells me that each power should have a chance to activate the -RES, regardless if it just applied via another power. Based on my subjective experience I notice a lot of -RES debuffs on my Soldier - more than I would expect out of just one power triggering it and the rest going into cooldown.

Kind Regards,

Every power can proc a proc individually, though I believe multiple instances of the achilles proc from the same person may refresh the duration rather than stacking the -res.  I don't remember it clearly, and I do know that you at least used to be able to briefly see the Numina and Miracle buffing procs "double up" if you are tracking recovery/regen and zone fast enough ingame, but I just seem to remember that Achilles Heel may be a special case in this regard and not stack extra -res because of how popular it got.

The Achilles' Heel proc IO will cause the $Target to cast the -Resist debuff effect on themself (involuntarily).  The debuff does not stack with itself from the same caster, and since the $Target casts it on themself, multiple procs will not stack even if coming from different attackers/powers.  That's because the debuff effect is cast by the $Target onto themself.  The trigger for casting that effect can be any number of powers slotted with the proc, but only 1 proc can be active at any given time.


So slotting the proc into multiple powers will improve the "uptime" of the proc on your $Target, but you won't be able to stack multiple debuffs of the proc onto a $Target.


Hope that makes things clear enough for you.


Verbogeny is one of many pleasurettes afforded a creatific thinkerizer.

If I slot Achille's Heel in Arctic Breath, will the proc stack with Arctic Breath's -Resist debuff?


It should, they are from different power sources.  One is a foe-self-casting proc, as Redlynne mentions, and the other is from your Arctic Breath. 


I would also guess that a different -res proc, such as that from Annihilation, would stack with the Achilles Heel one, any idea Redlynne?

Many are saying Omega maneuver is not worth it. I have it at 39 with 5 slots and it does seem to suck but again I'm 39. What makes you a crab mind? How do I have to slot to get the pets on a better recharge? The big ones are bad ass.
