Energy Willpower, for lulz


Snarky

Recommended Posts

I am looking for tips on building a Energy Willpower just for smashtastic fun.  not tanking.  if anything, playing like a fat scrapper.  Will be incarnating for more damage rather than more survivability.  Alpha will be Musculature for instance.  Hybrid will be Assault,

 

I will be trying to eek out survival in the basic build.  Just the focus of the build will be as a platform for max smackage asap.  

 

I havent run Willpower since live.  Any tips are appreciated.  Oh, will have Flight as travel power.  This is an old ss/Will Rogue I am rewriting for HC!

Assault Radial against anything without high NRG DR. If they have it, like Mu Drakhen in MLTF, switch to Assault Core.

So far, I'm digging my ET(long)-TF-ET(short)-Gloom-Bonesmasher-repeat attack chain. I fire buildup AFTER TF and usually get the buff on the ET(long.) It's back up every third cycle I believe with 1 recred and the Gaussian CFBU.

That's exactly the attack chain I've settled on with my EM tanker right down to hitting build up after TF.  It's really fun when you get a team with enough recharge buffs that you can outright skip over the slow ET.

I would never want to skip over slow ET. If anything, maybe skip BS. The DPA from slow ET is still a top 10 attack

So rolled into this Saturday morning 1st level Rogue.  2 DFB Redside, 2 DFB Atlas Park.  Posi 1, Posi 2, Synapse, Sutter, Yin, Moonfire, Manti, and a kill all ITF at +4 (I killed a LOT of surgeons)  ending at level 41.  Tired lol.  

 

The character is surprisingly strong.  The changes to Energy Melee are noticeable.  After playing Invul and Dark Willpower is ...interesting.  It holds agro way better than Dark.  For one thing the mobs can see it lol.  With a little planning it can take any alpha, survive any combat.  For mistakes there is Resurgence 🙂   

 

I do not have a build plan.  Liberally cramming procs, globals, and sets on from my base storage.  (I have a deep set of storage trays, the toon is already rolling in ATOs, Winters, etc.)  Was levelling so fast in ITF I ended up just adding SO Heal Enhancers everywhere, then started adding resists.  The build at that point had been enhancer heavy on attacks, with one 4set of Reactive and the rest just being held together by procs and globals.  Up until that TF the build had not been seriously challenged.  running as a 49 against 50+4 it did okay.  I was surprised.  

 

Am looking at slapping in the Rune of Protection.  While the Incarnate plan is to pick pure damage powers, having a solid rotating set of shield that I can rotate in and out of will be key to staying on my feet and dealing damage. Strength of Will, Rune of Protection, and Destiny Barrier will all be playing a role in giving me just enough mitigation to keep smacking crap around.  Of course I will be including +Res and softcap S/L def in my build goals.  But I know each tough fight will be a inspiration management dance and keeping an eye on those 3 rotating shields.

Looked around this morning and no TFs were running.  But a farm posted an ad...  41-50 done.  Respec complete.  T3 on Alpha thanks to mailed Emp merits.  (Musculature)

 

Here is the buildout as it sits.  May (prob will) tailor this out a bit.

Energy/wp is no joke. I have it in scrapper form with et, tf, et, zapp, bs. Willpower makes for an excellent pairing as it's set and forget and can also heal back the -hp. Even as a scrapper this combo is a machine.

i am enjoying it.  wow does it hit hard lol.  and honestly it is pretty tanky, more than i thought it would be since my build is not softcapped nor did i get big resist numbers.  but i do rotate my RoP and SoW going into the heavy stuff.  also not shy about popping a purple or orange if needed.
