Would like to see: A Stalker-fied Blaster

Recommended Posts

There's a few archetypes I'd want to see before this that I feel would be less redundant (A tanky melee defender, a long ranged artillery tank, and a melee mastermind), but I'd like to see something that is to Blasters as Stalkers are to Scrappers.

 

I'm not feeling the idea of a super long ranged sniper that hangs far, far back from the battlefield and snipes important targets: that already feels like the blaster. At the same time, a blaster that uses stealth to get in close and burst down important targets feels too scrapper-y.

 

Rather than jump out with my own entirely thought out concept, I'll just throw some ideas here and prompt some discussion.

 

My idea to give them their own niche: make them a "preparation based" ambusher. I.E: give them controller secondaries, allow them to use them without breaking stealth (or maybe using one starts a 10 second timer before stealth breaks), and give them damage buffs that stack tremendously when doing so. I like the idea of them hanging around the sidelines, wearing down enemies as if they were sitting ducks, before going in for the kill: it's something that would set them apart from blasters, controllers, stalkers, and scrappers alike.

I kind of put one together, though it still has a good deal of melee potential. 

I envision a mix-range combatant that uses placates to stay alive, as opposed to dealing critical damage, while sabotaging the enemy (the light control aspects of a Manipulation set):

A stealth sniper with some control powers just like the PPD Ghosts.

A while back I tired to create a 'Stalker' version of Blaster myself, have a look if you like.
