    Bug
    The Behemoth's choice at level 11 is between Thunderclap and Demolish, not Thunderclap OR Roomsweeper.


    Bug
    The Reckless Adv on the Haymaker doesn't seem to work or increase the dps of Haymaker by 30% compare to R3. Here is a chart for referance. I only use the lunge that applies Reckless and Haymaker x2. I tested both R3 and the adv with r2 three times each.

  • My review:

    The Wrecker is a great archetype. It's a combination of the advantages I chose but this is a great choice. I really hope you offer this for free - because it's to me as good as the Savage. Don't know what it was but I got a shield over time ability which helps me keep smashing. Think it's the Endorphin Rush. I tested my level 40 with some basic equipment found from asking the debugger for items and made myself into a half presentable opponent who had no problem dealing with normal Purple Gang or DEMON enemies as long as I kept the team size to one. This archetype is fun. You feel like Juggernaut

    8/10 Will play again.

    I'd suggest adding another proper Single-Target damage to Behemoth. If a Behemoth picks up the Haymaker 5-point advantage, they're stuck without one.

    Potential suggestion for the Wrecker AT default outfit. Had a few alternate concepts (like this without the hardhat) but posting this now:

    Yeah The Bruiser or The Brute.

    I like The Wrecker. Mainly because it makes me think of Wreck It Ralph, which is a good thing.

    I would swap some of the AO/AD powers around. The Behemoth probably needs access to Aggressor and Endorphin Rush, especially with Diminishing Returns being corrected and affecting its damage output. The Wrecker should choose between Indestructible and ER - melee DPS ATs tend to be a bit vulnerable when they face lots of targets and Indestructible's flat damage reduction would stop the player getting scraped to death.

    Behemoth at 40, Warcry or Demolish/Roomsweeper; whichever power isn't available at the lower level. Because it'd be really nice for my behemoths to at least have access to all the attacks they've been using for years on end, and also not have to get a power that doesn't thematically fit any of them.

    I support this, warcry should be a choice over something else

    I was wondering if any changes would happen to the Devastator Archetype? My Devastator used the Endorphin rush on Enrage as his heal which kept him alive. Also It would be nice to have the knock Energy Unlock for the Devastator. Maybe we could trade Brimstone for a heal. I've found myself never using Brimstone because the Devastator is literally all AoE damage and Brimstone just seems like another AoE attack.

    Suggestion
    Give Brute Force to all Brick archetypes as an option for their level 25 power please.

    Yeah, Devastator will be in a bad spot without Endorphin Rush. Perhaps make that a choice at level 35 similar to how it's a choice on the Behemoth new progression?​​

    Is Behemoth 11th choice going to remain as in PTS currenty (thunderclap or Demolish) or going to change to what is listed. (Thunderclap or Roomsweeper.)

    Suggestion
    Please keep roomsweeper /somewhere/ in the early levels of the behemoth. it is what i use to sell CO to newbies: "you can punch a a bunch of mooks all the way to the horizon!" and it is a ridiculously satisfying power.


    And before vets point out the issues of knock backs in group content, by the time these newbies get serious / invested in the game, they usually switch to a different powerset (or at least realize to use such attacks more selectively).
