Reviving Old Build- Infernal Tank - Help/Review/Improve

So, I've been away for a year... Off playing other games, enjoying my habit of watching movies in the theater.. etc.. I've recently returned to ARC games, I've been with City of Heroes/Villains since shortly after launch, AND I was one of the Beta Testers for Champions... I've been playing since launch.. but I never got good at player builds.. I do rely heavily on others to help create builds that are effective and fun. ANYWAY, I've been reviewing some of my old, old builds, And would like to see if anything needs to be changed to remain effective.

    It looks pretty decent overall for a DE/Infernal tank. Ego Surge w/ NM was nerfed to only really jive well w/ TK builds, so I'd prob get LnL, Imbue, or Ice Sheath instead. I may also replace Bionic Shielding w/ Conviction.

    Thanks Flowcyto, I've noticed you've commented a lot of builds to requests here. I greatly appreciate your skill in identifying power comparisons, power combinations, and what works well overall... I'll see to changing the bionic shielding, It was never one of my favorite powers.... henchmen force you to use it up quickly every use... and it never heals as much as it feels like it should.

    Not sure what LnL is, or how it works with the build. Ice Sheathe is a decent defense, as I do have a couple Ice characters in the past using it.

    Happy to help

    fyi, LnL = Lock N Load, the Active Offense in Munitions. Its one of the three dps Active Offenses I generally suggest.

    Bionic Shielding is fine for a self-heal, though its better for a Support unit to use it on you instead since they have much more bonus heal on it.
