Fire/Ice Blapper


Recommended Posts

Frozen aura does damage now and it's worth picking up and slotting if you are into melee blasting. I think it's a shame to go into cold mastery and not pick up hoarfrost to cap your HP.


Rune of protection almost mandates that you invest in a lot of recharge bonuses which deprives you of defense bonuses/power picks that you can otherwise build for. That's the challenge with blasters. Your build will only have ROP up 1/3 of the time, if you can knock the downtime to 1/2 or less then I'd say ROP is worth it. Otherwise building for softcap defenses is going to be the more consistent way to go.


Nowadays I prefer S/L and Ranged defense on blasters. Most melee attacks have a S/L component so that's solved with S/L defense, range defense covers the rest and it's the ranged attacks that will stop you before a fight even starts. Fire/cold defense isn't all that important, most attacks are hybrid fire/S/L or cold/S/L so your S/L defense will cover against those and range defense will cover the rest, even some of the ranged psi attacks.


Stamina is a worse endurance recovery power than frigid protection, if one of those deserves to be 6 slotted it's the latter. With a 6 slotted frigid protection you don't need any of the other recovery uniques. You don't need to 3 slot hasten, 2 slot with level 50+5 boosted IOs and call it a day. You can't go crazy with procs when you have to build for 2 different vectors of defense but you can at least cram a guassian's build up proc in aim.


This is how I would build a fire/ice focusing on survival with cold mastery.
