I'm not a very technical or experienced build maker, but I put this together after noticing that Ricochet Throw was kind of badass! :biggrin: With Quarry, Concentration and Sonic Device I can easily one shot a LT and his minions with a full charge. After that the same attack works great as a tap against bosses and I hardly use my EB even at very early levels. I mostly play solo on PVE, so here's what I was thinking:

PowerHouse (Link to this build)

Level 6: Intelligence (Primary)
Level 10: Ego (Secondary)
Level 15: Endurance (Secondary)

Level 1: The Impulse

Level 12: Investigator
Level 15: Negotiator
Level 18: Wordly
Level 21: Amazing Stamina

Level 1: Sonic Blaster
Level 1: Ricochet Throw (Rank 2, Rank 3)
Level 6: Concentration (Rank 2, Rank 3)

Level 14: Force Shield (Force Sheathe)
Level 17: Support Drones (Rank 2, Rank 3)
Level 20: Toxic Nanites (Rank 2, Rank 3)
Level 23: Molecular Self-Assembly
Level 26: Evasive Maneuvers (Rank 2, Sleight of Mind)
Level 29: Masterful Dodge

Any suggestions or critiques welcome. Thanks for viewing my post!

    Ok, so learning #1, Support Drones are a pain in the buttocks. I chose them initially for thematic purposes as well as general laziness with regard to my health maintenance. Unfortunately, they are much more of a nuisance than they are really worth in terms of drawing unnecessary aggro. Based off what I have seen on other builds, I replaced it with Conviction as a burst heal and as a proc for MSA. Plus the simple animation doesn't make it a super un-thematic power when you consider what Sonic Device and Toxic Nanites look like. :wink:

    I would suggest modifying your superstats to Dex (or ego) as you main then Int/ego (or dex) as secondaries.

    I myself would take another AoE next to Ricochet and Force eruption , probably a maintain to quickly get rid of low hp minions etc instead of having to charge a ricochet.
    That being said, there isn''t much in the tech department that would fill that role I suppose save for maybe Lead Tempest (with a tech gun) .

    Other alternatives would be Strafe Run and maybe chainsaw gauntlet.
