Melee

Melee is a powerset currently used by Scrappers, Brutes, and Tanks  that uses melee attacks. This thread is designed as a compilation of proposed Melee powersets. I will do my best to go through the entire forum to find all Melee powersets, however if I do miss one (or not describe one as you like) let me know.

 

Tendril Melee (19.06.03.23.54.01): A flexible take on Spines. --set is not described in post, but linked to via Google Docs--

 

Toxic Melee (19.06.25.15.57.04): Toxic damage in a spineless melee set.

 

Bio Melee (19.06.25.15.57.05): An AoE-centric melee set that combines Lethal/Smashing/Toxic damage for a toxicly lethal smash.

 

Volcanic Melee (19.06.27.09.31.02): Heat and smashing damage will literally melt your enemies faces. More AoE than Fiery Melee, with different mechanics.

 

Reaper Scythe (19.06.30.08.46.01): A new take on battle axe that really reaps rewards when attacking higher level foes.

 

Astral Guardian (19.07.12.12.10.01): Astral projection that packs a punch. --set is not described in post, but linked to via Google Docs--

 

Psi-Blade (19.07.20.09.59.01): Occam's Razor eat your heart out!

 

Telekinetic Melee (19.07.20.09.59.02): Telekinetics with melee range and a mage-hand feel.

 

Mental Melee (19.07.20.09.59.03): Really getting into the minds of your opponents.

 

Single-handed Spear (19.07.20.09.59.04): Stabby-stabby-pokey-pokey.

 

Multi-Limbed Melee (19.07.25.04.33.01): Four arms are better than two!

 

Martial Prowess / MMA (19.08.10.11.14.01): A mix of current martial arts sets for a different feel.

 

Rapier Melee (19.08.15.12.10.02): Dibs on the name Inigo Montoya! ST focus with rapier-quick wit and attacks...

 

Vampiric Melee (19.08.18.06.35.02): When you just wanna say, "bite me."

 

Gravitic Melee (19.08.29.09.03.01): A really heavy concept. Just remember the inverse square law...

 

Daggers Melee (19.10.29.11.03.01): Et tu Brute?

 

Temporal Melee (10.11.04.21.58.01): The time is right for this melee set!

 

Note: Some powerset proposals were left out because they were just suggestions and not detailed sufficiently for inclusion.

 

Note: I will also be doing a compilation for other types of powersets, but am doing them one at a time to keep the sets manageable.

 

Note: DD8811 is the color I am using for Melee.

 

----- Taking a break, will complete this post at a later date, just finished going through the first 25 pages of the threads. -----

I have a couple that I made before I started crossposting them to this forum:

 

Tendril Melee

 

Rapier Melee

 

and Astral Guardian Melee

Varkarrus, I picked up Tendril and Astral from your other posts. I believe you shared Rapier with JusticeBeliever, but I haven't been able to spot it in the forums. If I can't find it I will link to your post in this thread when I've finished going through the other threads.

Thank you for including my set in this compilation!

I'm trying to include all sets that have been posted. Let me know if you find any I've missed as I am going through all of the threads and there may be some deep-thread gems that I overlooked.

One thing that I think would be a good addition would be sonic or "vibro" melee.  We have sonic blast and support/debuff sets, so this seems like a natural fit.  The set would focus on damage resistance debuffs, but perhaps the melee set could have a PBAoE toggle or click that can put enemies to sleep,  a la 'Siren's Song' from the blast set.  You could also have a short cone attack that knocks enemies down, like shockwave.  A sonic armor set would go with this, too.

Thank you.  I figured if it was me that said it, it'd be clue enough it was a topic I posted myself.

Thank you for your "help" but for future reference, it is preferable to provide a link. I go through hundreds of threads and posts putting these compilation threads together. There are going to be posts/threads that I miss (especially if it looks like it is a reskin rather than a concept), sometimes threads slip between pages as new posts appear while I'm searching. It happens. So, if I miss something, just providing a link rather than a comment that sounds like snark is a better way to get concepts included faster.

And you say I sound like snark...I was trying to help you >_>

I want to offer up thanks to Varkarrus, biostem, Chance Jackson, Rylas, daveyfiacre, Steampunkette and many others for putting forth these brillant ideas both here & in the other Archetype/Powerset threads.

 

And a special thanks to Zepp for compiling it all.

 

This community is a wealth of great ideas, you should all be congratulated & commended for your efforts.
