I did pretty well with this character, however, I was really messing around and kinda leeching, but hey, it worked wonders. I was using a Scorpion, enough said. Anyways, what's a good build for Huntress on Gold?
I've always loved Warp in the past, but with Dark Channel in, I feel like just doing: Cloak -> DC -> Shoot Twice -> Get Away -> Cloak -> DC -> Shoot Twice, repeat
So, can someone also tell me what DC does because even though I love it, I have no idea how it kills in Gold. It's like... poison? I know what Warp is great against, but is DC not effective on something? I took down Brute and Banshees rather fast, and on gold...
Dark Channel is a boss-killer. Cloak, throw it on a boss, and let it sit; do NOT be one of the people that spams DC over and over again. After using DC, you can cloak and Warp the target for a nice bioplosion, and then proceed to tear into them with your weapons. I prefer a Wraith on her; with Warp Rounds attached, she'll be doing tons more damage to targets primed by biotics.
Although you can cast DC again to prime a boss for another explosion with Warp, I find this to be somewhat inefficient in the long run, since there's usually a high probability of someone overriding your biotics with a tech power, thus causing Warp to detonate it and not DC.
6/6/6/6/0 is IMO the best non-melee huntress build. Cloak for damage, recharge, power damage; Dark Channel for damage, slow, pierce; warp for detonate, expose pierce, and passive for power damage, power damage, weapon damage. Take a claymore and don't worry about cooldown since cloak negates cooldowns. Cloak, DC, fire, cloak, warp.

There are a few alternatives to this. For instance, you could take Bonus Power instead of Power Damage at Rank 6 of TC; this will allow you to cloak, use DC, and detonate it with Warp all in one cloak. I actually really like that build, but this one maximizes the damage of DC.
The Wraith shouldn't affect your recharge speeds too much since it's a lighter shotgun. That being said, cooldowns don't matter much on Infiltrators due to TC, so don't be afraid to equip a heavier shotgun if you want.
