What is the most damaging and safer with Kinetics?




Sonic, ice, or radiation?

And how is dark paired with radiation? I really enjoy the dark playstyle, but do not enjoy most of of the dark blast set as the damage seems slow, although I will miss the holds but then again already playing an ill/rad controller as my main they feel quite similar.

Thanks all.



Honestly, if you want to make the most offensively and defensively out of Kinetics, make a Corr.

Corruptors have a higher damage cap so they can make better use of abilty to trivially cap your damage with Kinetics. For defense you can take the Scorpion Shield to get smashing/lethal defense.

If you're used to having holds, I'd recommend going Rad. It's not as damaging as Fire, but you've got a very solid ST mez in Cosmic Burst. Sonic would also work well for the same reason, but Sonic is more team-supporty (increase the teams damage via -res) whereas Rad is more straightup damage from you.

Most damaging? Sonic for single targets, Ice for large groups.

Safest? Ice. The secondary effects of Sonic and Radiation are all about defeating enemies more efficiently, while Ice has a pair of holds for crowd control, and massive recharge and movement debuffs to reduce the incoming damage.



Well doesnt have to be the highest just in the top 3.



I love my Kinetics/Ice. She feels like a Blaster with the amount of damage she can put out and the holds make soloing very safe indeed. Although there are two holds in the set, the second one has a long animation which I find jarring with the flow of Kinetics. With the right slotting and Siphon Speed running though, I can normally lock down a boss with 2 applications of Freeze Ray. And if you have someone to immobilize or slow the mobs, the combination of Fulcrum Shift and Ice Storm is.... sweet.

I also have a Dark/Kin Corruptor and although the damage cap is higher, the damage is very DoT and doesn't feel as solid as Ice. Dark though is a very good match and helps with mitigation where Kinetics doesn't give much.

Both are good combos but feel very different.

Fire/Kin Corr.



Check out my Ice/Kin guide in my sig. Ice is a great pairing with Kinetics. I will be writing an I19 update when I find the time to respec him and test some things out.

Wow this sounds well amazing, never been a fan as an ice blaster but paired with kinetics hmmm, I always enjoyed ice in other games, but this seems to hit the spot in what I am looking for I will give it a try thank you.
