Nova form works well in the lower levels, but gets outpaced by other dps once you get to about lvl 30 as the other ATs are coming into their own and get some of their harder hitting attacks.


Nova form would be great if the attacks it has had a better DPA, and put it's damage cap at the same level of blasters/scrappers but it shares the bottom tier damage cap with defenders/controllers/masterminds.

Sorry but I think there is a misunderstanding. The problem here is not to be better than Blaster or others AT  but find something that PB does well.
This Build is an extreme search of bonus damage, to maximize the basic bonus damage so to exploit the damage scale.
I would never do this build on others AT and i think anyone else, because it would be not very effective and unbalanced.

I could post all my old builds made over the years and we would not miss the fun.
In these builds you would always find a large hole and the effort to fill  it, as the lots endurance consumption or the lack of mez resistance etc. etc. In the end you would think :  Ok is fun but ...
Here I had the feeling: Ok PB now can do well!
