SUUUUUPER AWESOME COMBO! I'll get you one cause i plan to do this myself. Did em/bio, was fun but em/shield is just insane.

Yes please do! I’m looking to start one up this evening so a build would be great to have something to base it on to have a direction for end game!

Muscle and Ageless.

 

I've gotten turned on to getting a lot of Slow resistance also, and this build has 80% (100 with the cim day job of another +20). You'll most likely get to incarnate cap when doing incarnate content with all the team buffs flying around. Hopefully this gives you some ideas.

That’s the build you are currently running? I want to build around a final end game build rather than one to just get me by so if that’s a better one I’ll follow the zap build.

 

 

It is. It exemps perfectly fine. Everything is catalyzed except for the purps and winter stuff. What can be +5ed, is. I don't build something and use it if I can't use it for everything. Exemping, farming, av hunting, whatever. I do know before this guy had anything past T1 muscle and T4 Ageless it was dropping +4 AVs, solo. Ghost Widow being one of them.

Just made him this morning! Build looks expensive so I’ve got my work cut out! Lol. I appreciate it. What server are you on? If you want to add me on global is @EyeTheKing.

 

 

Excel. And sure thing!

FYI is SomeGuy not me sounds like he's trying to pick up and hijack the build. I can guarantee you EM on scrappers does not need Zapp to fill out any ST lack. I can also guarantee mine will have better survivability and endurance/regen than that Zapp build.

The only main difference is having an extra aoe via ball lightning, but i can also guarantee that it's not needed with my build as well. Build up, TF, get gaussians proc and crit proc for both boosted power crash and then shield charge, whirling hands, and then TF/PC again during regular build up. Only bosses *might* survive, and EM on scraps is the best ST pretty much besides TW. I'd much rather the to hit debuff resitance, and extra 111.78% regen and 37% recovery with my build. Weave earlier is also going to do a LOT more for you than grant cover.

lol no, definitely not trying to hijack anything. I only shared it to give ideas. There is no "best" build. Everyone values things differently and builds towards those values.

Yeah read fast and looked like you were responding as me XD. Best *per* value though. I can guarantee mine offers more survivability/endurance. While yours does offer more aoe with ball lightning, it's VERY slight more. With Bu, gaussians, crit proc, tf>pc>sc>wh>tf>pc>wh most bosses don't even survive that aoe, so BL really just adds more flavor for range, but with cj, it's not like it hard to jump in half a second to the enemy.
