I really am shocked by how little I see the default human characters anymore. Even the vanguard, who I saw nonstop when the game was new, is pretty rare. Human adept and engineer are amazing at power combos, and the soldier has a couple viable builds for gold and plat.

Everyone has access to these characters, yet no one seems to use them.


They're "boring" is the likely reason. None of the base human classes are bad, though I suppose some folks might dislike Cryo Blast and Sticky Grenades on the Infiltrator, but they don't have that pop factor either.


You want "pop factor", use a basic Human soldier specced thusly,

Adrenaline: Damage all the way
Concussive Shot: Stagger
Frag Grenade: Armor damage

Use Black or regular Widow

Presto, you have created a class that requires skill and finesse, try not to get downed.

What has more "pop" than the human adept making three BEs at the same time with singularity/shockwave?

Again:

None are bad.

They simply lack 'pop'.

Drilling people with AR'ed Black Widow shots is great, but still just amounts to 'pew... pew... pew...'.

Compare that to, say, the Geth Trooper. He's a robot, with a flamethrower. A robot with a flamethrower. 'Pop'.

A space ninja... I see more Slayers than standard human Adepts.

I'm still not sure I buy that. A human engineer can lay waste to enemies with alternating tech bursts and fire explosions. The human vanguard's charge > nova, while annoying to others in your group, is still pretty fun to play.

Plus one of the things I see MOST of is vorcha who run around spamming flamer and little else. If "pop" was what players were looking for, I can't see that playstyle getting as popular as it is.

I never see pugs use anything other than the juggernaut, ghost, AIU, trooper, warlord, or destroyer


Wut? I never see the Warlord, I actually see lots of stupid Shaman players who melee instead of using powers/using a reegar.

Maybe cause the n00bs on PS3 think differently then the n00bs on Xbox.


Why not use a melee build with a Krogan Shaman? He gets Warp to debuff the enemy/boss and Barrier for the Damage Reduction. It's a better idea to go with melee as a Krogan Sentinel or Krogan Vanguard but stupid ideas are also very fun.


Awakened Collector Melee build FTW.

@Nafzger

Yup, it's probably the best ability in the game.

1. Instant reloads

2. Weapon Damage boost

3. High DR, comparable to Shield Boost minus stupid glitch

4. Slows down time anyone?

Nope. Tac Cloak is above and beyond the best general ability. Reave is the best power in my opinion (definitely the best biotic power). Snap Freeze is the best tech, maybe tied with Flamer.

Um... whut?

1. Ok, this is true.

2. Less than Tactical Cloak

3. Um... you get no DR if you take damage. Also no shield gate refresh, also DR is useless if you're almost dead anyway.

4. There is no power in multiplayer that slows down time to any degree...
