I've been running Acolyte + Hurricane (ULM, HVB) on caster classes lately.

Eh, as long as you have a 17-19 second cooldown for your Pylon, equip whatever you want for your Demolisher. :P


My demo can get 6 grenades over the course of 14 seconds because I keep my cool down manageable. While you can be effective with a long cool down, a shorter cool down is superior IMO. I don't care if I have to share grenades because I reproduce them so quickly. A long cool down makes for a stingy demo.

Eh, at +200% cooldown you can replant the Pylon in 9 seconds. So in 18 seconds you can get 4 grenades.

But the Pylon automatically dumps grenades after 17 seconds. So you can still get 4 grenades in 18 seconds by replanting the Pylon every time you have your cooldown ready.

So you only need about +40% cooldown speed for the Demolisher. There's nothing stingy about it.

I use the Acolyte X with ULM as my primary back-up on the classes that won't suffer from the little extra weight (Vorchinel, Krodept, Havoc, etc.) and the Claymore on the Krogan Sentinel.

I forget what two weapons I use on the N7 Destroyer because I don't play him much; I think a particle rifle and claymore.

Phalanx on most of my characters that I need some cooldown bonus for. A few (actually I think only my Volus) I use the Acolyte on.

I don't use a secondary. I feel weird switching weapons, as dumb as it is.

Been runnin' the acolyte alot as a secondary lately, depending on class. And on some classes where the acolyte is my primary, I'll run the hurricane with ULM as a backup or for bosses.

Mostly, it just depends on class though. Some classes get no backup at all. I mainly just try to make sure I have all my bases covered. I want something that can handle phantoms at all times if my powers can't. And I want something that can deal with guardian shields if my powers can't. As long as I have those 2 things covered, I'm good.
