Savage/Rad

I am left to wonder why people aren't heaping mounds of unmitigated praise upon the noble savage/rad combo. Granted, my guy is only level 14, so... maybe it gets really bad later? Or maybe its one of those things (thunder) THEY don't want you to know.

I have a Savage/Electrical who was my second go as Savage on a Brute (original was Savage/Invulnerability). A damage aura powerset works well with Savage. He's fun in a hectic, go, Go, GO! sort of playstyle as it really pays to not let Blood Frenzy stacks drop. I am guessing your strategy is to mostly ignore consumption of Blood Frenzy stacks?

 

Savage/Electrical inspired my follow on Brute who is Psi Melee/Fire. Less control over initiating DoTs but same basic concept without the need to be continuously charging forward. 

 

Savage/Fire should also be a bit less go-go as Fire can do a bit more of the lifting for damage output, but I am thinking can pretty well go continuous Cuisinart if it wants.

Pity me. My graphics card died and I am getting by on a Radeon 5450. It is amazing how a 12-year-old graphics card struggles with an 18-year-old game.

I'm a huge Savage/Rad fan - far and away my favourite. I wouldn't say it's an OP secret ultra combo necessarily, but holy poop is it fun.

I have a Savage/Bio Brute that is very synergistic… I could see Sav/Rad being the same!

Sav/Elec is an awesome concept!

Yah, Badger Speed! Actually, I've not seen that kick in yet (as seen on my savage/plant dom). But he's had to slow down in the mid-teens, because the bad guys have got a lot tougher and he can no longer take out several minions at a time with Shred and Sands of Muuuuu like back in the Glory Days of the single-digit levels. I'm hoping that comes back eventually, though, because it was a lotta fun. Meanwhile, hiding behind corners to 'pull' because of all the +1 Lieutenant gun-toters -- well, it's just not very Badgerly. Then again, neither is wiping the floor -- with his face!

I am thinking Radiation Therapy and Particle Shielding will help a lot in maintaining Badger Speed.
