Why yes I do know what a search feature is. However with the 1000 returns it is hard to dig through all that. So I ask in posts.

Avoid TW, the mechanics are clunky and you start to lose that fun factor real fast.  If the set up time was 1 or 2 attacks, no problem....its all of them, generating the momentum to counter the delay in the set up or unlocking the certain ones that rely on it.

 

For a first time player, play something like Katana/Claws/Savage/Martial/Kintetic.  Much faster animation times and recharge, the clunky slower ones are a turn off for a beginner; Axe/Mace/TW.  Energy Melee is probably ok, explain the slower animation time in the last attack can be countered with the other one.

 

For a secondary, Invincibility or Willpower.  Easy passive play sets so they can start to understand the game mechanics of +def/+regen vs number of enemy or the taunt effect.

I freaking love TW, but I sadly have to agree with this. TW isn't something you do as a first time player. You can't go wrong with any primary really, you can really only go wrong with a secondary as a brute. I'm talking regen. Don't let him do regen. It's like letting your friend join the military as military police or something. You don't do that to them.

 

Outrider is giving some solid advice for a new player. Notice how he doesn't mention regen.

IDK playing TW first might be the way to go.

 

As a newb you wouldn't realize how freaking clunky and slow it is outside of Momentum.   So you wouldn't know any better.  

 

I'd play it on a scrapper though.  Might as well make a heavy performer if you are going to do it.   TW/Bio prols, don't even get him used to normal Melee survivability.

On the flip side... when I first came back, I dove straight into a TW/Bio scrapper having never done either on Live.  Now all the other sets seem ULTRAFAST! and MAINTENANCE FREE!

He doesn't HAVE an ass.  That's one of the things we're transplanting!

I DEFINITELY see the appeal of this, but this wasn't a good change to a lot of vet players that took the time to really figure out how to get the most out of sets like that. Oh well. I get the whole "best for all, woe for some" mentality.
