Plant/Psi/Ice build critique and suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I built this Plant/Psi/Ice Dom today and was wondering what yall thought of it. The main focuses of this build was defense and recharge with some procs thrown in as well. I tried to have a proc in most my attacking powers.

 

Some questions:

 

1. Had quite a time balancing recharge with defense. I was focusing on ranged defense mostly. Does anyone see in my build where I can get a bit more recharge in there without sacrifing defense?

 

2. Thoughts on procs in roots? I ended up swapping them out for some extra recharge but was curious of what yall thought.

 

3. Do yall see any other powers I should be proccing out instead?
 

4. Will 4 pts. knockback protection from Blessing of Zephyr be enough? I took acrobatics because I felt like that was a free slot and I could use some more protection.

 

Thanks for any feedback and suggestions!

Hey Sleepy! I checked your build and you did a good job balancing between + rech and +def ranged. 

 

However im not a fan of Ice Mastery and my reason is that Ice Armor provides S/L defense only and  doesnt provide +res to stack with tough. +Res is not a minor thing for me... even if you are softcapped in range you still will recieve hits and whenever they go through your defense you will need a "secong layer" to absorb the impacts.

 

For these reasons i would rather pick Psionic Mastery. So i put together an alternative build for you with Psionic Mastery with the next highlights:

 

- 185 % rech (+3% more than yours)

- Perma Link Minds which provides +46% def ranged 

-58% S/L Resist (+20% more than yours)

- Fky Trap 6 slot with resist bonus

-Roots with Fiery Orb (is better to have the orb there you can keep spamm and increase the chances)

- Better +regen and +recovery thyan yours 

 

With this build you will gain better survavility and stand by your own on any TF or end content.

 

Here is my take.

Oh i forgot! This is an unnecesary concern. You will live in permadom and KB protection is not required at all. Cheers!
