Elec/WP or Elec/SR help

Recommended Posts

So, I can't guarantee my quality, but I have been levelling an Electric / Reflexes Stalker recently. Still gearing (and a fair way to go), but this is what I have so far for a "destination" build.

 

Speaking from practice, with my current setup? (Which is basic Stalker's Guile, the LOTGs, Mako's and 3 or 4 pieces of each Obliteration, plus the full Reactive Defenses)


It's a fun and functional character who swings fast. Everything is off cooldown all the time, you've got permanent uptime for major buffs, and your positionals are pretty good. I think with better set selection and maybe a few tweaks I could shore up a lot of weak spots, but it has been 7 years since I properly theorycrafted a build for this game. Solo, I can't quite do two +2 Elite Bosses simultaneously with my current gearing, but everything below that has been fine.

 

Endurance costs have been an issue, but it's fun and functional. I'd love to get any advice from others as well, while we've got the thread going.

would they even be any good

 

As for this broader question: Yes! As far as I have seen, Electrical Melee is an extremely popular and potent Stalker kit, especially since Lightning Rod is a psuedopet that doesn't break Hide / expend your Hide crit. This allows for some very punishing Build Up openers into crowds, with Rod into Induction and then your rotation on the last standing hard target (if there are any).

 

There's an active thread right now about Electrical / Shield Defense, which is part of what I adapted for my work. and there's a thread from the original COH forums about Electrical / Ninjutsu.

Thank you for the build Ariamaki!

 

I'm leveling an Elec/SR as my first stalker, so I'm also looking for experiences and thoughts on the sets and how they work together. I'm going to screw around with build planner and see what I can figure out.

I leveled and IOed out an elec/bio stalker and it's damn strong offensively. Defensively it's pretty strong as long as I have the density for Bio's clicks. If you don't have the density then you could always switch to Bio's defense mode, but I haven't had to really do that yet, it's all about offense adaptation.

 

Electric pairs really well with it, and does really good damage with a decent blend of ST and AOE.

 

I have a fully IOed psi/sr stalker that excels more in ST than AOE and has better straight defense and ddr, so I'm going to use both in similar situations to compare performance.
