SJ/Nin build, Critique requested


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I'm pretty horrible at builds but I'm trying to make a decent sj/nin scrapper build.

I was wondering if you could critique it and give me some feedback on it.

Hamidon enhancements in Swift and Hurdle are a waste since those do not cost end, regular IO's should do. Some powers seem a tad overslotted and I would have aimed to softcap all three positionals and not just melee. Also, I think it's a mistake not taking the self heal. Street Justice lacks AoE so I'd probably go for some AoE powers in Pool and Epics to make up for it since Shadow Meld's utility is limited since it can't be made perma, especially on a def based set.

I'll try to translate. Apologies to Nightmarer for any poor translation. 😉

  • Microfilament Exposure enhances two things for 33% - endurance and movement speed. But Swift and Hurdle do not use any endurance at all, so all you get is the 33% movement speed enhancement. If you instead used Invention: Run Speed and Invention: Jumping, you would get an improved 42.4% enhancement, while spending less influence.
  • You might benefit from having fewer slots devoted to some powers, allowing more for others. I'm going to personally refrain from any specific suggestions here.
  • When Shadow Meld isn't up, you have 47.6% melee defense, and 39.7% Ranged and AoE defense. You should get ranged and AoE defense to at least 45%. It seems a small difference, but you will take only half the damage from Ranged and AoE attacks if you do so.
  • Take Kuji-In Sha. Being able to heal damage is very important, and the stacking toxic resist (I assume it's stacking) is a nice bonus since almost everyone is weak against toxic damage. Be the hero that isn't!
  • If you get your melee, ranged, and AoE defense to 45% or higher as recommended, then Shadow Meld is doing you no good in most situations outside of incarnate content. And in incarnate content, 15 seconds probably isn't long enough to keep you alive - they'll just take you out after it drops and before you can hit it again, forcing you to take a purple, and if you're taking a purple anyway, there's arguably little point to Shadow Meld in incarnate content either. Skipping it saves a power and slots.
  • Skip Moonbeam and Soul Storm as well, and instead take... I suppose Mu Mastery to get Ball Lightning? This will give you a ranged area of effect attack that might meaningfully improve your damage output in many situations. Your area of effect damage is limited in Street Justice, so a little help is nice.
