Good build for blaster to get started?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I did some PvP on live but has been a long time and many changes

 

what is a good blaster build? I heard ice and psi are good and also ta and plant. What are some reasons to take one instead of the other?

Ice is good because it has plenty of secondary effects which give you more ability to slot damage procs. With the changes to the proc system (PPM vs flat rate) you can stuff your heavy-hitting attacks full of damage procs (Bitter Ice Blast and Freeze Ray come to mind) and boost your damage output that way. Psi is still nice because of projectile travel time so you can basically make 2-3 attacks hit at the same time which makes it harder for both your target and your target's emp to deal with. Regarding Plant or TA, it's a choice between damage and utility. Plant has Strangler (ranged hold which does good damage and can be proc bomb'd) and Toxins instead of Build Up which is nice because the extra toxic damage that's added isn't subject to diminishing returns like the +dam bonus would be. Tac Arrow gives you some really good movement control, net arrow, and glue arrow, which is great for disruption and keeping people grounded, but you lose out on the extra damage you'd get from going Plant.

if you want the most OP go Psi/Plant

If you want to widen your options consider Beam Rifle, Dark Blast and Ice Blast

for alternate secondaries consider Devices, Energy, Martial or Tactical

For TA how many control power do you need ? Is a build with only web arrow and the first power (forgot the name) + utilities (gym, eagle, etc etc) viable ?

For primary, i Will take beamrifle.

you have to take the web arrow, other than that you want:

 

upshot

eagle eye

agility

gymnastics

 

and thats really all you need/what makes ta good

 

 

i really like glue arrow as well, i tend to take it instead of single shot on my beam/ta

ive heard some people like flash arrow, but it seems pretty niche

Thx  for answer. My choice was between ta and em. I choice ta because it’s seems less cliky. 

Ta looks really cool to play
