    If you dont' care about patrons, but want the easiest patron arc, Black Scorpion is the way to go, IMO.

    Man, do I want i12 to be out.

    Also yeah, scorpion is terrible. 10 or whatever missions of "my huge armor conceals a tiny, tiny dick."

    Although you do fight a lot of nemesis as I recall, who are decidedly easier than arachnos to deal with.

    Black Scorpion's arc contains the best farm in the game.

    In terms of actual story, Scirocco and Ghost Widow are the best. Do not do Mako. It's stupid, he's annoying, his arc sucks and as stated above, that fucking Font mission.

    I think what I love most about Mako and his patron arc is that it comes up three or four times every thread ^_^

    It IS funny.

    And anyone with status protection has a much easier time with Fonts. Still annoying, though.

    But it only knocks off that one toggle. Not my stealth or Frozen Armor...is it just offensive toggles?

    yeah, defensive toggles don't shut down while you're stunned (although their effects get suspended until you wake up.) Offensive and some other utility toggles get shut down.

    the fact that rise to the challenge is considered an offensive toggle for this purpose drives me crazy

    on the rare instance i get mezzed, having my regen suddenly floor out BLOWS

    I occaisionally get mezzed on my ss/shield when I chain too many attacks together and prevent active defense from autofiring. Very annoying.

    Pony it doesn't matter what RttC is considered. When you get mezzed, if the toggle stays on, then its effect is still suppressed. You lose the +def of Heightened Senses, the +Res of Mind Over Body and all those, but the toggles don't shut off so when you come out of the mezz you don't spend 10 seconds setting back up.

    So even if they took out the -tohit of RttC, when you got mezzed your regen would still hit the floor. The one and only difference is that when you came out of the mez, you wouldn't have to turn the toggle back on. That's it.

    yes and given that the toggle has a cooldown, that sucks pretty big!

    That's why I supplement my A-merits with reward merits, S/TF's, story/ouro arcs, Hami raids, they all help.

    Hay guzy!!!

    So, after grinding around for a while on my fire/ice blaster, I realize that while the blowing stuff up part is fun, I'm kinda sad about the lack of survivability. So I was thinking about remaking her (Ender making a new char no way what is this world coming to oh my god the sky) as a fire/* corr.

    I was thinking /rad, but I'm a little concerned about the end usage of /rad, especially since fire/ isn't exactly end-light. Anyone have experience? Is the end usage as bad as I fear?
