Please critique my Savage/Bio

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

 

I see STJ/Bio on the stalker forums and also hear mention that savage is better on stalkers as well but cannot find a build for that particular pairing. I do not make builds well so please have a look at mind and tell me what needs changing. Bear in mind, I cannot afford the superior versions yet until I get 12 catalysts, and I cannot afford purples at the moment. 

 

I hope someone will find the time to have a look 🙂 Thank you guys

I'll still learning to Stalk, so I won't offer advice, though I am also interested in this combo. Perhaps one of the stalker gurus will be able to opine?


@Force Redux on Everlasting

Force Fields are love. If you aren't Super Reflexes you need more defense. Always.

Personally, I would probably go ahead and tank the recharge a little by splitting stalker's guile between AS and savage strike, but That's only because I know you have an attack chain that's so tight half your bar will go unused, and I prefer higher defense and slightly lower resistances.
Bio has decent regen, and I like to exploit that fact to build a bit more of a balanced 3-tier defense rather than pushing resist to the limits.

But ymmv, it looks pretty good. Not sure how much very rares would improve it.

I am curious why you would pick stealth instead of maneuvers as a LOTG mule, though. Are you having end problems?

Note- Boundless energy has higher recovery than stamina, and the chance for +end doesn't proc very often in stamina. adjusting some slots to add a miracle someplace could help a lot.

Boosters in all of your common IO's also helps a lot. If you leave stalker's guile the way it is, boosting hasten's recharges to +4 drops your hasten downtime to 9 seconds. slotting miracle into health, pulling slots out of stamina to add a common end IO +5 to boundless energy, and swapping out stealth for maneuvers and moving the second slot from Cj down to maneuvers for an LOTG defense/end increases your power usage to 1.44, but it also increases your recovery to 4.08, and your defense across the board  by 3%.

Really minor tweaks. Getting superiors is really going to help, and agility core will boost your defense quite a bit... and combined with endmod in boundless, your recovery will be a truly disgusting 4.78. with perma-hasten. Many melees prefer musculature, but in this case, you are going to be one-shotting stuff a lot, and you already have plenty of +dam... as well as 24 second buildup.

Thank you very much! Excellent. These are the little tweaks I was looking for. Much appreciated. I hope this helps ForceRedux as well

I am not a stalker Guru, though... Just a guy that HATES keeping an eye on my endurance 😛

I kinda have a rule though... the chance for +end fires so rarely that I only slot it if I have extra slots and already have end recovery 2 slotted (or I need the set bonuses) or I will slot it in clicky/targeted end drains, like in blaster's /ice aura... when you have an aura constantly ticking a ton of guys, it fires CONSTANTLY.

But in stamina, it seems to rarely fire... even a common Endmod IO seems to give you far better endurance management. I am not sure if this is how it always has been, or it's new to homecoming, but it seems to challenge old wisdom of putting 'chance to' procs in passives.

I was curious about that myself. I was wondering if there was something I didn't know that made pool Stealth a power worth taking for a Stalker.
