Rad/Kin proc build - Let's do something that doesn't involve softcapping

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that people have done this before. The board is flooded with softcap builds so let's do something different.


The goal is to create a kinetics build and use a lot of procs to push potential damage beyond damage cap. Of all the blast sets Rad is the best mix of proc potential, synergy, and melee-friendliness.


So far I have not found myself really wanting/needing softcap on teams. I might not be as hyper aggressive as my softcap builds but this can still keep up on apex/tin and other frantic speed runs. 


Few observations:


Kin's taken a dip in endgame team effectiveness because things die so quickly. There are a lot more "feel bad" moments where kin powers fail due to prematurely dead targets and there are less opportunities to get that saturated FS because there's always someone rushing ahead engaging the next spawn before you and the rest of the team gets there, You almost have to say "f* the rest of the team" and go chase the FS buff just for yourself to get consistent saturated FS buff.


Repel's (KD proc) value to kin survival is debatable. It's proc chance is low and end drain is high. I can handle whirlwind on my staff/regen brute due to end discount and higher recovery but on a kin it means you will need to constantly fire transference which cuts in to your ability to do other stuff. Dead things don't fight back and your endurance is better served making sure things die. I'll most likely replace repel with siphon power and throw an extra slot into health for a miracle recovery proc to help with exemp content end recovery.


Speaking of recovery, recovery serum is your friend for lower level exemp content. It's cheap, and you will absolutely need it.


Get Tactics + kismet proc asap (after you get your core powers appropriate for your level progression). Irradiate is nice, but the additional to-hit offers additional insurance to make sure you hit with irradiate so that all your other powers hit. If you care about exemping down for lower level content this is the power pick progression to ensure that you can be effective throughout your career.


If you like living life dangerously, this is the build for you!

I build with the same idea with all my toons. I build for 7% Def to all and buy the P2W def that gets me to 12% and then I buy a boat load of 33% that gets me to 45% def to all. I have about 300/500 stock piled at a time in /AH. That helps me when I want to slot out any AT for pure proc dmg.  

I really like your play style!!! Makes the game so much more fun and keeps you on your toes.
