Havoc and mahzee nailed it. The vorcha soldier is completely trivialized by the sentinel. Now if there was some sort of bonus power evo with flamer so that he could carnage quicker, I would at least use him for fun but he would still be inferior to the sentinel.
but of the two, i go with soldier because I tend to avoid grenade classes when other people in the lobby also use grenades, which is 99.99999999% of lobbies. --- it's not easy being this awesome and modest
Carnage's cooldown really screws up your ability to chain fire explosion. Not a problem for the Sentinel, whose grenades have no cooldown.
Soldier is OK if you skip Carnage and focus on making him a weapons platform with flamer. For power combos, the Sentinel is just better. Slap some grenade gear on him and go nuts. --- The big brain am winning again! I am the greetest! Now I am leaving Earth for no raisin!
Another weakness of the Vorcha Soldier is that if you want to detonate your own Fire Explosions, set up by Flamer, you have to cut off your flamer early. Otherwise, by the time your powers are recharged the Fire Explosion window is lost.
Carnage is a fun power, but a bit underwhelming IMO. --- Xbox 360 GT: o 8bitPunk o Need a new Emoticon? Why not Zoidberg? (V) (;,,;) (V)
Double tap fire explosions just aren't too great. You could end up doing more damage with flamer alone in the long run. Sentinel just has by far the better synergy of the two.
While I could understand not using him for grenade concerns, trooper does that infinitely better. At least the sentinel can put out better burst damage than the trooper. Soldier has nothing. --- Pokemon Y FC: 1134-7624-5851
