Radiation or Electric


Recommended Posts

Those two armor sets are somewhat similar in playstyle IMO. Rad is at least as good as Elec on the resist stuff, and better than Elec in terms of regen/selfheal. At their best, both can probably be equally good, but the /elec would cost more Inf to get there. As price is not an object for you, the decision comes down to aesthetics and/or thematics. I personally prefer the visuals of /elec as they are more subdued, but that is 100% subjective.


Disclaimer: My opinion is based on a Rad/Dark tanker and an Elec/Elec brute. It is possible that Rad/ is significantly different on brute vs. on tanker - if that is the case, you should ignore everything I say. If you need any tips on the best technique for ignoring everything I say, just ask my wife.

Rad can be much faster with far more dmg output, via B.Decay/R.Therapy/G.Zero.
Elec can be far more durable & easier to play, while L.Field will help with longer fights.
both can hit Melee softcap with lil effort, and both have +End tools good enough to keep you fighting indefinitely. i can't think of anything that works against Stone for synergy.

I did Stone/Electric recently. Rather than focusing on soft-capping defense, I capped S/L/E resistance (M/R/A defense is in the mid 20s). Unless you're faced with toxic damage, it's ridiculously durable. Endurance management is painful until you get Power Sink.
