Elec/Storm proc build critique


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I was wondering if people could take a look at my Elec/Storm/Levi build and give me some advice.  I built it with procs in mind, but i'm wondering if I went too overboard on procs as I find i'm running out of endurance all the time.  I'm also worried I probably misread about slotting Tornado, Lightning Storm and Water Spout.  I'm more or less fine with my power selections, but I feel like I need to shuffle some of my enhancements around for optimization and am not totally sure where to start or what might be better alternatives.  I can already see a few things to look at but I think i'll ask the professionals here as builds aren't always my strong points.

Can you post the data block / link so others can open it in Mids?

 

I wouldn't put a Damage proc into a Confuse which doesn't alert things by the way. Also damage procs in Tornado are a waste. They won't go off often. My Plant/Storm build is in my sig if you want to see how I slotted Tornado & LS, but if you post the build data link I'll happily poke yours.

Agility doesn't jive well with proc monster builds.

 

Also, the lack of FF + recharge procs is criminal. Proc monster builds need high global recharge and storm is ripe with  FF proc options.

 

Build might be amusing vs even to +1 con content but it'll fall apart if you try to do harder stuff unless you have support.

I've updated the post with the data link, i'll make sure to do that in the future.

I know.  I'm aware recharge boosts don't mesh well with proc rates.  I was using it primarily for boosting endurance drains and I also saw it as a means to get more recharge for more tornadoes and clouds.  Probably not helping my endurance issues for sure.

As a very quick tweak to what you have here's what I'd quickly change about. No procs in your tornados, cos they won't. 

 

Also I don't like the payback from Procs in Chain Fences (or any AOE Immob). They just don't go off often enough.

One of the first toons i made, loved it. Dumped gremlins you can't stop the knockback no matter how you slot them and the last thing you want is enemies outside melee range, everything close should be asleep/drained of end. Defence matters. Conductive aura can heal you pretty fast in mobs especially if you throw some heal in there and its all you have. You can toe to toe av and gm with this combo but you'll need the fighting pool at least. 2nd Miss Lib tf i was on i saw someone running one of these and we had no tank and they took care of Lord Recluse while we hit the towers. Wish i'd seen that build. If your going for proc heavy 0 defence build you'll have tons of fun teaming but might struggle solo especially if your running your rep high.

Welllll...... let's see. I'm just gonna go through them in order.

 

Gale - 1 slot, Acc/KB. Use it to move stuff around as you need it.

Chain Fences - 1 slot, Acc/Immob

Jolting Chain - 2-3 Slots, EndMod/Acc/RechX2, I'm not sure how well FF+Rech will proc in that, but if it is decent, put one of those. JC already does KB, so no need to burn a converter on it.

Conductive Aura - 2 slots, EndMod/AccX2

Static Field, 5-6 slots, Fortunata Hypnosis set

Freezing Rain, proc this baby up with as many damage procs as you can, one of your best powers.

Paralyzing Blast, I am not really a fan of these AOE holds. their recharge is just too long. But if you are going to use it, might as well do it up. 5-6 slots, Unbreakable Constraint set.

Synaptic Overload, replace Will set with Coercive Persuasion

Assault could go with just 1 slot

Gremlins, drop the KB-KD converter and grab the bonus aura IO from Expedient.

Tornado, one of the best powers in the game and sorely underrated, I recommend 4xExpedient Reinforcement, KB-KD IO, Drop a damage proc in the 6th slot, or leave the Font in it. Or just leave it like you have it.

Lightning Storm, I recommend 5-slotting with Apocalypse, then the last slot a damage proc or the KB-KD converter.

Tactics, usually people just put the 1-slot Gaussian's proc in this one.

 

I know I dumped a few of your procced-out powers in favor of sets, but your global recharge bonus was painfully low. Remember that global recharge bonus does not lower proc chance. Then again, I'm a recharge-addict from long ago. I tried to make sure that the power generally did as much or more damage, so you wouldn't lose that. Anyway, just my recommendations.
