Build Advice: Willpower / Psionic Melee


Recommended Posts

I'm currently playing a Willpower / Psionic Melee (up to 32 as of this posting) and could use some help optimizing the build.  My goal is to get at or near the resistance cap of 90% for Smashing and Lethal, at or near the defense cap for Energy and Negative Energy, and a strong combo of Defense and Resistance for Psionic.  I'd also like to fulfill my primary role as a tank who can gain and keep aggro, and contribute some damage.


Here's the first draft of my build:
