Energy Primary Blaster with Devices or Energy Secondary?


Recommended Posts

Devices has more synergy.


You are giving up a slot for KB tax, One way you can recoup that slot is through damage procs, another way is to skimp on enhancing certain attributes. Targeting drone allows you to skimp a bit more on enhancing for Acc, and consequently helps out your chances to hit if you go the damage proc route as well.


There is also synergy in opening with energy torrent, rush in and drop a trip mine while they are getting back up and leaving melee range with an explosive blast as a going away present. 


You may find it a chore to have to chase enemies to hit with melee attacks in Energy Manipulation because you knocked it back with your single target attack, assuming you take the melee attacks. And if you didn't take the melee attacks, devices looks all the more attractive.

I am going to do an Energy Blaster, and put KBTOKD in the AOE attacks.

I can't decide on the Secondary. I am thinking either Devices or Energy.


I have an eng/eng and it is a lot of fun.

Don't bother with the knockback to knockdown you have better things to do with the slot.

Very easy to cap ranged def and S/L resists for a quite tanky blaster.

Boost range and Power boost from /eng very usefull.

Also Power thrust is just hilarious 🙂
