Looking for a certain "vibe"


Recommended Posts

Ya know when the super powerful hero walks(or hovers) into a room and just effortlessly blows all the bad guys away?

 

Like if you pissed off Jean Grey, or Storm..  they arent gonna run around punching folks, or even seem to be putting much effort into the whooping they are dishing out, but a hurricane of destruction is going to rain down around them.

 

Thats kind of the feel im going for.   What combo do you think might best exemplify this "vibe"?

 

(Im assuming controller but if you think a different archetype could do it better, im open to suggestions)

I'm probably reading too much into your description, probably not a Controller, at least not in the early levels of the Controller. I am also considering with IOs and Incarnates just about every AT becomes a powerhouse.

 

Don't get me wrong, a few Controller combos perform well at dispatching several foes rapidly, mostly Plant/ and Fire/ combos. Out of the gate Controllers as a whole are a low damage AT and won't pick up steam until your Epic Pool levels or you've invested in to a high recharge and/or high PROCs build.

 

Now if you are willing to stick it out with Controllers, they are rewarding to play once you get the hang of them and understand the game's mechanics well.

You might look at a Storm/Water Defender (or Water/Storm Corruptor) for a character who doesn't look that aggressive but blows the mobs away. It washes, it rinses, it even has a spin cycle.

Depends on what you mean....  at 50+4, there is nothing that is going to effortlessly blow anything away unless you mean a Fire Brute doing a fire farm.

I have to agree with the Earth/Storm assessment, the control patches in Earth and summons in Storm really give a feeling of being aloof. 

You create an environment that takes care of the enemies, rather than focusing on specific enemies with attacks.

 

Add Fold Space.

 

that being said, it'll be very low damage until you get Tornado and Lightning Storm at 35 and 38.  If you're OK with feeling very much like a support character below those levels, this is a good combo.  If you want to slaughter (rapidly defeat?) enemies from lv1, you're probably looking at Storm, Time, or Kinetics on a defender/corruptor.

My fire/dark/psi Miss Paragon is amazing fun. Lots of explosive powers lots of AoE. She does amazing on teams. But very easy to solo lvl54s x8 struggles with burst damage but has alot of DoT. With all the recharge though psi tornado is up evey 3 or 4 seconds. However your usually applying some buff to you or debuff to them. But there is never a dull moment.

 

Can solo AVs too. Fire/cold would be an awesome combo but not sure i wana make another fire troller.

I vouch for plant/storm/ice. Melts folks and is pretty flashy too.

Plant/Storm/Ice is SO much fun in the last area of Market Crash, as I discovered last night.
