Could use a build (Mace/Shield)


Recommended Posts

I made a gimmick character who uses a mace and shield, but I'm not very good with melee builds. I mainly play masterminds, controllers, and corruptors.


I'm wondering if anyone can give me a quick build? What powers are worth taking and what should be avoided?

Safe as houses.  Nothing terribly interesting, but not terribly expensive, either, and it softcaps w/o Phalanx Fighting and hits 59% w/.
