Storm/Water help


Recommended Posts

Hey all! So I got my Storm/Water blast Defender up to level 40, and I absolutely love the synergy of these sets! I usually play Controllers, so I was wondering if anyone out there could help me with a build, and any other suggestions as I'm pretty new to Defenders. I'm absolutely clueless as to what Incarnate powers to take as well, it's not like I have enough heals for it to be worth taking the heal one. Anyway, thanks in advance!

This is the slotting for my Storm/Sonic Defender (Lightning Storm is actually all Sudden Acceleration right now, but Pine's doesn't support that set):

With Water, your life will be a bit more difficult since you need to take a lot more powers from the Blast Set than I did (I took 5/9, Water on a Storm Summoner really demands 8/9). On the other hand, you'll have a lot more powers appropriate to slot Thunderstrike and you'll be less dependent on the ATOs than I am. On the other hand, you really want to FF proc your knockback powers if possible.
