Bots/Force -- Am I doing this right??


Recommended Posts

Hello all:


  I'm attempting to re-create a character from the Live Servers from all those years ago.  My build back then had Aid Other/Aid Self, but I don't recall how useful they were.  The build posted below removes those powers and opts for Repair and Assault.  The other benefit of this is that it allows powers to be slotted sooner to when they are acquired, and Vengeance enters the build at 30 instead of 40+.  Should I go back to Aid Other?  If I do, shouldn't I take Field Medic?  And aid self as a pre-req?  No experience with Field Medic at all, as I don't recall it being in the game!  ???  What do I drop to fit those things in?  (I can post the old build if that would help for comparison, but I was trying to avoid "spamming" the thread.)


  Opinions are welcome on this power-swapping decision and the build in general.  Thank you.

I don't know if this build is the *best* or completely and fully optimised, but since I've been running with it I've been having a lot of fun and no longer feeling like I'm the weakest person in the room. I'm not quite to the point where I'm able to do the same things that some of the uber people I run with can do, but I can hold my own easily, and it's been going very, very nicely.


I'm not used to having a medical power that can help others, and Vengeance is one of those that's very conditional since things have had to go very, very south before you can use it. But I've liked it.


Just my two cents and feedback on it. Thanks for posting it!
