I hope your right but I'm way more than a little skeptical. Nightshade Blades is a grenade power so spamming it and crippling your teams grenade supply isn't anything to be proud of and Poison Strike's hit detection works maybe half the time.

Poision Strike:
1385 instant damage + (207.75 poison damage x 8 seconds) = 3047 / (2.46 x 0.5) seconds = 2477.24 dps without hit detection issues.

I'm number crunching but I just don't see it.

There's a steep learning curve to poison strike, will show more in the video.

Also, she doesnt sap grenades anymore than any other grenade based kit, in fact her blades arent that bad compared to some grenades, considering the mechanics of how they work.

From the sound of it your on now trying it out. If your not filming solo sessions I wouldn't mind seeing it in person. ( I've played maybe 4 hours in the last month so I'm rusty as ****).

I am.

From what Im gathering the point of poison is to allow you to do a lot of multitasking without enemies shields regenerating.

She has a lot of invisibility frames with her teleport and poison strike, if you add that to biotic focus, she can be very hard to hit.

What seems to kill her is if you get staggered into a grab, jump on a grenade, or try to take on too many enemies at a time.

If you use poison strike over and over the damage output is pretty good, especially if you are hitting the same targets over and over. You can completely destroy banshees without them ever grabbing you. But first you have to isolate the banshees.

If you use blades before poison striking ohko enemies like the banshee, the banshee will let you go when the blades detonate (always take detonate)

Preach on brother. She is a woefully underappreciated class.

That works with the batarians explosive blades, too.
