Team Crabber build advice


Recommended Posts

Been wanting to do a team crab Soldier for awhile and I think I finally have a build that I like. I have never played these before. Was hoping someone with more experience with the AT would give it a look over and tell me if I missing anything important. Or has any advice, thank you.

As long as you're running lots of Leadership toggles and blasting everything with debuffs, you're doing your part for the team. It's actually a pretty low bar in design terms and you can accomplish it many different ways. I'd just experiment and see what's fun. You may find that Omega Maneuver is quite difficult to use on teams because people will just steamroll right through while you're patiently waiting for it to work.
The only thing I would suggest you change is...  Crabs can soft-cap all their positional defenses without breaking a sweat, and it's definitely worth doing, even if you have to choose some set bonuses with less recharge.

My own Crab here is a substantially different take on the team-friendly build.

I worried about that, I guess I will give it a try but I foresee this may get respecced out of.

 

2 powers I am having difficulty choosing between is Longfang and Suppression .....any advice one which one to pick?

I don't know how committed you are to the pets (not henchmen!). We had some good discussion in this thread that I think is worth reading. There is some later focus on investing in MOAR Leadership for yourself, pets and teammates. For VEATs, teammates are just pets with seriously wonky AI.

That is a great read do you have your full build posted somewhere?
