Symphony Rad Controller - Build suggestions

Recommended Posts

So, I haven't made a Symph yet but I've been exploring builds for it lately. Controllers are kind of a pain to go after good defense, recharge, CC, and procs without sacrificing something. I'm also not sure how procs do in Impassioned Serenade, and Confounding Chant considering they are dots. 

 

Having said that, I was curious so I decided to whip up a build. If this is a teaming build you can get away with being under 45% positional defense. Radiation infection also does hefty -tohit, but you have to remember to keep it up if solo.

 

I've been viewing Impassioned Serenade as a damage attack that just happens to confuse, it also has the same base recharge as single target holds and can be procced. If I could I would've shoved confuse dmg procs/hold dmg procs in Reverb.

 

This build gives you a single target attack chain of Hymn, Serenade, Ice Blast. AoE chain of Confounding, Discord, Frost Breath. Perma hasten, perma buffs, perma debuffs. Takes musculature for more dmg. But you can tweak what you want, ymmv.
