I've read many places that taking the advantage for force bolts (the fastest energy builder, by the way--use it instead!) is a good way to go because the procced 12-second shields count as an energy form, effectively lowering your force cascade cost to a doable range. This frees up the slot that electric sheath is in.

I'd recommend decided which is more important to you: lightning arc or force blast. Use those advantage points to buff foce bolts and get the hotspot advantage for force eruption. 20% damage increase is hot, especially when you can blast off a fully-charged force cascade!

Protection field is pretty nice for more support. Bots/resurgence are a given. Did you notice a huge difference in electrocute rank 3 and electrocute rank 1? I didn't.

Did you consider force spate combined with protection field and containment field? That can be devastating AOE hotness!

force bolt was intended, not sure how electric bolt got in there.

I use both arc and blast thoroughly, but I can stand to rank down one of them.

containment field is obnoxious because it gives way too much protection to the target. I don't use protection field often enough for force spate to be worth it I don't think, but I will consider it.


very good to know about Energy Refraction -- thanks!

edit: haven't messed with the different ranks of electrocute yet, but I don't have anywhere else in particular that I want those points.

Very nice, although I'd probably do rank 2 electrocute with the advantage or rank 2 electrocute, rank 2 sonic device. Force is so sexy :D

I hope you don't mind, but I might take some of this and run with it on Azalin. I'm not happy with the Sorcery path and I'm not sure how I want to play this character. I was thinking about Force and I really like this build, so far...I'm still going to mess around with the builder to see if I find a different build entirely I'm happy with...
The cake is a lie.
