Spines Powerset question

Recommended Posts

Hello Forums,

 

First off I apologize in advance if this is the wrong section. I wasn't sure where else to put it for a general powerset question.

 

Anyway! I want to make a Spines character, but I am undecided on which AT or secondary to pair with it. The only thing I know for sure is I don't want a spines/fire brute/farmer. I am unsure what else might shine with it, I might go Bio armor or Ice Armor, but I wanted to ask if there was any other AT or secondary that pairs particularly well with Spines?

 

I am open to Tankers, Scrappers, Stalkers, even Brutes if it's a different secondary. I just don't want a /fire armor farmer.

 

If people were wondering, I am hoping to have her be a "general use" character. I dislike making X characters good for Y activities but bad at Z, if that makes sense. 

 

TLDR - besides spines/fire brutes, are there any other builds that makes Spines shine in particular?

 

Thanks bunches in advance

It amazes me no one knows about the Archetype section. Scroll past the ATs there's a whole world there.

I took it on a brute but mines a fire farmer.

On live I had a Spines/elec. I liked it, and that was the Scrapper version. I would likely go Brute or Tank these days. You can easily cap three of the most often used damage types. Brutes with two damage auras is pretty fun.

Without Pause Claws/wp brute, Nothing But Flowers Plant/storm, Waterpark Water/temp blaster, Sneakers StJ/en stalker,

Current obsession(s): Dual boxing CoV(Savage/rad brute, Dark/savage tank)

With the stone armor changes making it much more endurance (and non-granite) friendly, a spine/stone combo is looking good, although haven't tried it yet myself.   Double damage aura, and both spines and mud pots have slows (so even a scrapper with no taunt might be okay in not having to deal so much with runners).  Should be both sturdy and have some good damage.

How many posts would you want to make, to look for a character with anything with spines animation, in every sub forum?  

 

Spines/ Brute

/Spines Tank

Spines/ Scrapper

Spines/ Stalker

/Thorn Assault Dominator

/Plant Manipulation Blaster

 

Or ask in general to narrow it down to AT?  Than look for a build in the AT forum, as right now you can't make a Spines/Earth Scrapper but brute and tank both have earth armor.

There's actually a general section too! That's where I asked for advice on the best AT/set for a praetorian completionist! It's quite handy!

I think my "shine" and your "shine" are entirely differently.

 

I don't have a character conception currently to match a spines/fire.

It would be sacrilege to make the Burning Bush! And I don't think I would want to play the Fiery Porcupine.

 

The first CoH character I made was a Spines/Regen scrapper. Wasn't my first 50 back in the day, but they did end up making it to 50 before the sunset.

As I said goto the Archetype section click on it, you will see all the AT listed. If you scroll past that there is a General section for ATs, powers, builds, etc.

Oh.  General use.  My first thought was spines/dark armor and see how many toggles you can run at once in actual combat.

Like Toggle Man.   FYI, I actually created this character on Everlasting and he's level 46 so far.  Pathetic single target damage, but OMG I can wreck large groups with the AOE's and procs.

I used to hail from Infinity.  Mainly on Everlasting, now.
