Going to build for 45% Ranged Defense for max effectiveness.  That means a lot of full sets and pretty much no damage procs.  Any suggestions for a better way to go?  Seems like I'm not giving up much offense for high end survivability.  Should offer a lot of resistance debuff for teams, plus 17% to hit for all those pugs who never slot enough ACC for +4s.  😉

You don't really need to build for 45% defense on a Sentinel, especially on teams. But you can, it's just overkill. Drawing from my own experience I think a middle ground of 33% defense suits a Sentinel better, and when, if, taking damage then gobble a small purple to reach 45%. But it may be a dozen missions before feeling the need to eat a small purple.


Even solo I did the Trapdoor test with 33% defense and did not even need the small inspirations since we open with a nuke and mop up with AoEs which reduces a pack's size to half.



Bigger things noticed:


- No need for Tactics either since most your powers are already at 120%-ish/140%-ish to hit +3 enemies even with the Kismetic unique removed and both Tactics and Mind Link turned off.



Smaller details:


- Replacing the two generics for two Preventive Medicine will add 2.5% S/L resistance.

- Replacing two LotG in Maneuvers for two Reactive Defenses will add another 1.5% S/L.

- 5 slotting Brawl with Hectacomb hurts my soul. I would place those slots in Reconstruction and place a full Panaceia there if you are hurting for recharge. Then the spare slot could go to Integration for yet another two Preventive Medicine for another 2.5% S/L.

- You have the Shield Wall 5% resist unique slotted in but not the Reactive Defenses 3% resist.

- The slash proc in Dreadful Wail is going to be resisted more than a Eradication energy proc.

- Amplify with no slots is recharging in 35 seconds. Your nuke is recharging in 26 seconds. Try to spare a couple slots for Amplify in order for both clickies to align.

- Replace the damage in Dreadful Wail for recharge/accuracy.



If you do decide to try lowering your ranged defense to 33% you will have more slots to play around with, but keeping it at 45% will work just as well so it is your character and your decision.

Thank you, I hadn't turned on notifications and just saw this.  Totally forgot about the Reactive proc, gotta get on that.  I did level to Incarnate and ended up dropping Tactics.  Thank you for the solid insights!
