Do I need to respec my Arch/TA?

Haven't played in a while, and while I do miss the reduced hold capacity of ESD and Ice Arrow, I still have hold procs in them, and just have to accept that I can't hold as well as a Controller, which was probably the point.  That being said, if I just play the char for fun in missions and farms, do I need to respec in your opinion, or no?

Eh, I just checked.  Since I got OSA now but with one slot, I just dumped a End/Rech/Slow IO into it, with my global rech it's back up in 45 seconds.   A lot of chars once I max out I just play for fun to grind up cash for alts.  Also, my holds have hold procs in them for fun.

I still haven't respeced my Dark/TA, but I'm planning to. Oil Slick Arrow does good damage, so added slots are useful. While you can put an IO set in it, the power is autohit so accuracy is wasted. You can frankenslot with 3 dmg/rchg and add procs if you've got slots to spare. I wouldn't bother slotting for slow, since Oil Slick is primarily a knockdown patch.

 

I never had ESD Arrow in my build, so that change didn't affect me.

I've been looking at my dark/ta too. It had bonfire in it originally but I may swap that out for oil slick. Is it autohit when lit as well? It does look like it does good damage, I wish it had the area of the defender version though.

It's autohit to foes when lit, although the target you need to shoot to light it is not (standard 5% chance to miss). I've been trying to use Tenebrous Tentacles to keep foes in the slick, and since I've got fire and energy procs in TT, it lights the slick as well. Although it doesn't have the area of the defender version, the blaster version has half the recharge.
