    What is a good class for silver against reapers? Because soldier doesn't seem to be worth jack shit.

    Then you're playing the class wrong

    Well, then I must have bad allies because nothing seems to die even though I'm the one getting the shit belted out of them. If I could get grenades more often I would probably be fine, but having lots of health means jack shit when you get one shot by banshees that absolutely *refuse* to die.

    Edit: Basically, I need to make things die myself and not rely on others to do it for me.

    Then Vanguard or Adept is a good class, they can really tear shit up. If you want to be useful in other ways, then Infiltrator is really good for reviving comrades, distracting enemies and completing objectives. Sentinels are awesome at dealing secondary damage, especially the Turian is useful as hell up against Reapers because he can wipe Barriers and Shields clean pretty damn quickly, leaving other more suited classes to deal the damage to the armor.

    Vanguards are tricky as hell to play though, you basically have to be a ninja, strike quickly, get out quick because you won't stand up to much in a fight. Make sure to get the AoE upgrades and the ones that boost your barrier as that will be a lifesaver for you.

    EDIT: Oh, and it's not impossible you were just playing with shitty players, you can't play Silver as you would play Bronze. If you can't get the team work to... uh, work, then you're screwed, there's not enough missiles to get you through Silver like that.

    Oh, and to all who want to try and play a round on Silver... please do some leveling up beforehand. At least level 10... preferably some equipment as well. Seriously, we had a Level 1 guy try and join us and we were like "Uh, no, we're not gonna carry you through this just so you can get a Commendation pack... go level up."

    Very very slowly due to the fact soldiers don't do jack shit, but 6 it is. Going to try a Drell Adept or maybe Salarian Infiltrator.

    It's probably already been mentioned, but there's a community event going on until tomorrow on Mass Effect 3's multiplayer. The goal is to kill 1 million Brutes all together, and if the community can accomplish that, we'll all automatically gain a Victory Pack on March 20th. Also, they're rewarding players for facing off against the Reapers in Silver difficulty or higher: if at least one member of a party is extracted at the end of a game, all the players on the squad will gain a Commendation Pack, which will contain one of the special, Single Player-only weapons included in the special edition (N7 Hurricane, N7 Valiant, etc).

    For more information on the event, check out this link

    [edit] And, yeah. Wow. Obviously, everyone already knows that, lol.

    Drell Adept beats the shit out of my soldier. Even at level 4, I am far more effective and was keeping up until wave 6/7 on gold with a team of much higher players (then it all fell apart). I love how I can use pull + reave to blow people up - so immensely satisfying.

    Been trying to decide on the ultimate anti-brute squad. Undecided on Inferno, Warp, or Reave. Also undecided on Sniper Rifles vs. Shotguns.

    Tend to roll Adept regardless, at least until I hit 20 just in case I unlock the Asari.

    Asari Adept makes a joke of reapers*and everything really, but reapers moreso*. 2 maxed warp bombs to kill a brute/ravenger, 4-6 maybe for a banshee on silver.

    Secrets, lies, and tragedy. The trifecta.

    Reave is actually really good at taking down the barriers of Phantoms so I'm not really sure what use Stasis has anymore.

  • AegeriAegeri Registered User regular
    Reave is just absolutely amazing frankly. I don't know why I didn't bother using a non-soldier before.

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Shockwave is made much more useful in this one since enemies don't all have defenses at higher difficulties. It's also very useful in multiplayer because it allows a Vanguard to set up their own Charge, if necessary, by whittling defenses and staggering weaker enemies. Hell, at level 6 it can even set up Nova or Charge-bombs.

    I just can't figure out the best way to allot my skills to allow Shockwave to be effective. I want Charge and Nova maxed, I think - or at least Charge! But my passives are also very important. It is a tough balance. Damn this game.

    It's actually really good combined with Cluster Grenades. Against a group of enemies the AoE effect of the Cluster Grenade after using Reave is pretty devastating.

    Just had a pretty good game on gold. 20 asari adept x2 (me as one), 20 human engi, 16ish soldier. Soldier quits at around wave 2 or 3. We tough it out all the way through level 10 where we complete the objective but finally die. But despite losing I think 3 people nearly beating gold is pretty good.

    I wish we could see Shepard from the eyes of a Cerberus mook. I also wish that we could see the weapons and mods equipped on Shepard and co. when we're in the position to buy upgrades, so we have a better idea of what to get.

    I've actually listened to that Reave sound effect so much now that I just tune it out, heh. I unlocked the Quarian Engineer last night, which seems pretty good. I like the idea of the little turret thing, though it seems pretty ineffective. The cryo ammo upgrade is good I guess? for 'Holding the Line!' etc. Not sure what to take for its final upgrade though - the rockets sound nice, but since it breaks after two shots I wonder if the flamethrower might not be better for chucking it into a group of bad guys. Any opinions on that one?

  • SoundsPlushSoundsPlush yup, back. Registered User regular
    Yeah, reave annoyed me so much that I don't think I'll use drell adept again unless they patch that hideous, constant sound effect out.
