Psyshot Advice

#1 Post by DuckAndCower »

I'm having trouble building a viable Psyshot. Seems like I'm just way too squishy and don't deal enough damage in the few turns my shield is up. How are you guys building yours?

My current build: http://te4.org/characters/190332/tome/f ... f7da3a46a1

28% resist all from Molten Iron Blood. More from Thick Skin, as I find items that raise my CON. You could take Avoidance for Tessellation, but I don't think it's needed. "Of Nature" guns give good resist all too. Use your Salves to get affinity (healing) from elements.

Keep your Vaporous Step ready for escapes, and use Solidify Air to block off areas. I also keep Rocket Boots, in case I need an extra escape.

This was mostly on 1.4.4-- not sure how it works on 1.4.5. I did get 1-shot for the first time after updating due to some Sawbutcher hijinx, but on 1.4.4 I never got close to dying. Btw, this build locks the game constantly at present and is almost unplayable, so I'm waiting for a patch to complete the run.

Locks the game? how ?

I made a bug report for it: http://forums.te4.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=45828

It's happening when the Improved Gestalt shield breaks.

Thanks for the response. I was pretty heavily invested in Mechstar, but I think I'll give yours a shot. Looks like you're building towards Nightmare, which might be fun.

Psyshots have a lot of tools to lower mind saves, which helps Inner Fears land. The Nektosh fight was hilarious. I had 5x of him spawned, all summoning their own help and firing beams at him.
