Screaming Gale’s Storm/Sonic Defender Guide

Filed under: City of Heroes,Defenders,Guides — Jeremy

Gale was designed with a concept in mind. I've always loved the Storm Summoning Powerset and Sonic seemed like a good combo. With the name Screaming Gale, it was perfect.

Her builds are based around her idea in that there are some powers many might skip just because they're hard to play or unpopular (gale for example), but I'm taking powers for fun here. She's got all kinds of Knockback and choas-inducing powers. Sure it makes her more challenging to play, but then again, you can do things many people wouldn't expect (not to mention you're a maverick in the Repec trials.

Powerset

A power set is a set of powers (imagine that) that are available to a given hero. They come as Primary or Secondary powersets and consist of a series of powers that are related to each other and the hero type involved. For example, Dark Blast and Gloom are both attacks in the Dark Blast powerset for Defenders.

Knockback

Referring to effects that send foes flying. These powers need to be used carefully as a very common strategy for battles is to get the enemies to group close together which you can undo in a hurry with a single knockback power.

Repec

Character Respecification. Getting one of these allows you to relevel your character from level 1 to your current level instantly. You can choose all new powers and slotting choices (though you have to stick with the same primary and secondary power choices. You get these typically after new Issues or from the Respec Trials which are basically task forces with a respec as the award.
