Kin/Elec build for critique

Recommended Posts

For starters, I'm horrible at builds. This one was done by @Hawks, who is pretty phenomenal at builds for me in the past. Just wanted to share here as this one is really working and pretty tight. Just wondering if any of you number lovin' geeks would've done anything differently. Lack of a Verticle travel power is disconcerting is my only beef. Might swap one out for Inertial Reduction.

I've never posted a build here either. I'm hoping I chose the correct format.

The capped S/L/F/C def and resistance is pretty impressive, on paper... but I wonder how much of this is build is to get to a 'safety state' at the expense of damage and team usefulness.

 

One of the most fun things about kinetics, to me, is the crazy pace and boom-all-or-nothing swings.  Your one-slotting of transfusion, transference, and fulcrum makes the baby kinjesus cry.  The kin-way to me is that you don't have to go all max-defensey-resistancy, its that you go all squishy-crazy and if you go in the red, you mash your heal and you're back up again at full health to keep the roller coaster going.  You should be all fulcruming and siphoning while in the thick of it... bring big damage buffs, bring big heals... this is what a team wants of a kin. 

 

In my build, transfusion is maxed out for heal/recharge.  Transference is maxed out for end/recharge.  Fulcrum is maxed out for recharge.  And siphon speed is maxed out for recharge so that I can spam that for more recharge so that fulcrum and transferencefusion is recharged.  Gotta go fast.

 

Kin/Elec is also one of the best sapper builds in the game.  You can go all-in on this... or not.  I did, and it's... cute.  There are occasions where you can take a mob's endurance to zero and halt their recovery so they stand around doing nothing.  Occassionally handy, usually useless in endgame where the enemies pose no real threat so it doesnt matter if they are blue-drained or not.  It was a great form of damage mitigation while leveling in a duo.

 

I'd go more into some of the weird choices in your build (four-slotted-for-recharge hasten... ummm)  but the first question is, how do you play and what do you want to be effective at?  Soloing?  Team support? sapping?  fire farm support?  exemplaring?  That'll better dictate where to go with your build.

I concur with everything said here. I have a Kin/Elec corr well into her vet levels. I didn't really build her for survivability but somehow... she survives. And that's mostly by making things real dead real fast and relying on RoP, Barrier or Force of Nature when things get hairy. I try to have Transfusion, transferrence, and fulcrum shift up as much as possible. I use siphon speed and siphon power to keep things rolling too. It's really a thing of beauty. Any mistake usually leads to a dirtnap admittedly, but I don't die all that often. I usually pull off spectacular shit on the regular because Kinetics is a goddamn beast. As for End Drain, I don't bother trying to drain anything lower than bosses. Some bosses can be gutted by short circuit followed by transference. I also have power build-up which makes it all the worse.
