Sentinel Proliferation: Seismic Blast

  • New primary for Sentinels. This version does not have the Tombstone power. Instead it is replaced with Gravestone.

You can manipulate earth and stone to defeat your foes. The crushing force of many Earth Powers can reduce a target's Defense.

Being of the Earth, you are the most powerful while on the ground. While grounded, your attacks increase Seismic Pressure. As your Seismic Pressure increases, the cooldown of other Seismic Blast attacks is reduced and your chances of triggering Seismic Shockwaves around you also increase. These Seismic Shockwaves will have a chance of knocking back foes and, while standing on the ground, empower some of your attacks. Rock Shards will have its area and damage increased. Seismic Force will decrease the cooldown of all recharging Seismic Blast attacks by a moderate amount. Stalagmite will deal a large amount of damage.

I've rolled a Seismic/Stone Sentinel.

 

Much anticipated.

 

Great job so far.

 

Love the power diversification to Sent's.  But we have a unique flavour of 'range' buff plus Geode!  Which is like Hibernation but layers of Geo rocks which break down upon mob damage?

 

L9 and enjoying this.

 

Planted.  Robust.  Entertaining.  Really highlights the pro's of the Sentinel class.

Yes, so far Seismic Blast is delightful on a sentinel. I need to put more time in on mine but so far I enjoy Seismic in general with that good, crunchy feel to it. Needing to be on the ground for some of the powers doesn't bother me. Can't say I've encountered anything unusual with it yet.

I primarily play on Everlasting, but you may occasionally find me on Indom. 🙂

Notable Characters: Apocolyptica - Demons/Storm MM; Lurking Monster - Human-Form WS; Environmentabot - Bots/Nature MM; Miss Fade - Ill/Traps Controller; Sister Apocalypse - Beast/Dark MM; Dr. Elaina Wrath - Plant/Rad Controller (Join the House of Wrath, and spread the word of science!); ACE 9000 - Fire/Rad Sentinel

Just one thing.

 

The pulsing grey (well, they are in the power customisation I pickked...) seismic concentrentic circles which get activated from time to time *with the seismic mechanism/activation are very nauseating.  

 

These are not the only 'pulsing' circles in the game.  

 

Rock dust.  Clouds of sand.  All fine.  Happy with that part of the seismic visual fx process.  But this thing with pulsing in to outward circle auras.  Another one. Eg. Conductive Aura on my Elec Domi.  Could we have an option to turn these pulsing circles off in preferences or via the tailor power/costume choices.  Once you see them you can't unsee them.  It's really nauseating.  There are alots of other good gfx in CoH.  I don't know what it is.  The repetitive pulsing?  But it really gives me headaches over extended play.

 

The auto camera swivelling around with each burst of new target/combat used to really nauseate after a while.  [email protected] since decoupled the auto camera.  It's made a massive difference.  Less nauseating and less annoying in combat.
