Best Bonus Power for Sentinel?

#1RGPanznerPosted 3/25/2012 11:40:12 AM
Starting a sentinel playthrough on Insanity which is gonna focus on defensive mostly to become a walking tank and curious what power I should use? I have access to all bonus powers including Ash's and Kaiden's. My Sentinel will be starting out from my ME2 import file if that makes a difference in helping me choose.

Depends. Fortification/Barrier/Defense Matrix are cool for the 70% Damage Reduction when combined with Tech Armor.

I take it with being a tank i'll primarly be using weapons since my cooldown timer will be off the charts right?

I went with Stasis on my Sentinel, just as I did in ME 2.

But, there are several good bonus powers that can work with a Sentinel.

70% DR makes Insanity feel like normal. Max out fitness, and you are a monster. Works best with light weapons actually. If you keep a 200%, then you can spam Defense matrix whenever you want. I roll with a Scorpion.

I just wanted a house on Rannoch with my love. We even picked out the spot.
Instead, I got Space Magic.

Pop a Bayonett onto a shotty and just run around punching people to death.

Yeah Statis comes from Liara during a conversation on the Normandy. Anyhow you guys given me some good advice. Won't it be hard to keep 200% recharge speed with 2 defensive buffs active at a time?

Defense matrix, adds to tech armor and restores shields up to 100% when released. Firepower is better on insanity than powers anyway.

Doesn't barrier do the same thing or is Defense Matrix better?
