Title: Rad Sonic Defender thoughts ...
Post by: CoH Joe on May 10, 2019, 08:23:35 PM
Read a cool guide on https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/pc/536558-city-of-heroes/faqs/59807 but it seems outdated .... wondering about thoughts on this build ...

I'm assuming leveling build since no set IO stuff? If so I'd take siren's song as soon as it becomes available. It's extremely effective and would let you set up your rad toggles in safety.

That sounds good - if on a team - do they want you to do that? Or do most people solo?

Since I don't have a 50 ... never got to 50 either when I was playing before ... not a lot of experience to go off of.

Guess you can respec easy enough which makes sense that you would want different things leveling and at 50.

Guess the real question is does it really matter how you level - is the build that critical or what level do you really need something dialed in to solo missions ... the few I have been on its a mad rush - everyone jumps in and just blasts ...

If you're on a team you should be fine anyway. but siren's makes a huge difference if you solo. teams probably won't care one way or another if you use it since the sleep will be broken by aoe immediately. it is a nice large cone of -resist too though.
