Human vanguard + Shockwave build

#1link_15Posted 4/13/2012 10:02:32 AM
I made the mistake of putting 3 skills in shockwave in my human vanguard. And its not useful obvious because i mainly charge +nova/shoot like all human vanguards.

My current Build is this:

Charge (6) : radius, damage, barrier
Nova (6): damage, two times, pierce
Shockwave (3)
Alliance (5): power & capacity, power damage
Fitness (3)

Obviously i should have not wasted any points in shockwav, but since i already did i might as well make the best of it. So, what is the best build for it? Or should i just leave it like this and put the last 15 point to max fitness?

You could always promote your character to start over again, instead of using a respec card

I'm pretty sure the Crucible was supposed to harness the dark energy of Haestrom to destroy the Reapers

Yeah you should respec or promote your class to start over.
Ideally when you get to gold you should be doing the following:

1.) Biotic charge into group of enemies
2.) Nova
3.) Die
4.) Immediately quit

Just leave it at that, I guess, and put the rest of the points into Fitness. I've found that Shockwave on a Vanguard could be rather situational if you main Charge+Nova. It's good for knocking a Guardian's shield back for a quick shot to the face, though. Charge could do that as well, but I've found that a Guardian sometimes counters with a quick swipe making me have to back up and Charge it again.

you can dump all of your remaining points into shockwave, making sure to get LIFT at rank 6. this can setup, as well as detonate, biotic explosions.

Just leave shockwave at 3, take fitness to 6 and leave the other passive at 5, you'll do fine.

I should go.

Wait... WAT

I can Combo with it? Adept style?

So i can wave a banshee/brute and then charge/nova it to make explosions and high damage?

This sounds useful!
