Turian Blademaster  - by PD ORTA

Power Evolutions:
Tech Armor:(4)Durability, (5)Melee Damage, (6)Durability
Overload:(4)Chain, (5)Recharge, (6)Shield Damage
Turian Veteran:(4)Damage+Capacity, (5)Headshots, (6)Fitness Expert
Fitness:(4)Melee Damage, (5)Martial Artist, (6)Fitness Expert

Since you’ll be upclose and personal alot of the time a shotgun is probably your best choice of weapon. While this is a Melee class, use of overload is important for dropping shields/barriers for quick Melee kills, so staying reasonably light is a good thing. The Disciple or Katana are good choices for this class, you can also add a blade to strengthen your melee even more.
As a back-up and so you can fight at all distances, go with a scoped heavy pistol (with the headshot bonus enemies go down quick).

Basically you’re the tank for the team. But don’t go “Full Krogan” and charge into a group of enemies solo Melee’ing away, while you may get out in one piece… you probably won’t. With a team backing you, you’re the spearhead destroying everything with your Overload, Shotgun and Twin blades (make sure to get a melee kill in early so the bonus kicks in).

Play the way your team does if you’re on an offensive team, lead from the front and take advantage of your close range abilties. If you’re on a defensive team hang back and use your pistol and wait for the enemy to come to you. Once they’re in range break out the shotgun and melee away. If you get swarmed by enemies and need to make a run for it explode your tech armor, it may buy you the time you need to escape.

Noob Rating: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)

2.5. This class is as easy or as hard as you make. It’s all about about knowing when to fight and when to take flight.

Drell Grenadier – by M3ga7ron

Build Title:
Drell Grenadier – by M3ga7ron

Power Evolutions:
Reave: Radius(4), Damage Reduction(5), Damage and Duration(6)
Pull: (1),  (2), (3)
Cluster Grenade: Force and Damage(4), Damage Combo(5), Force and Damage(6)
Drell: Assassin: Damage and Capacity(4), Power Damage(5)
Fitness: Durability(4), Shield Recharge(5), Fitness Expert(6)

*Note* You can swap the Damage Combo(5) for Cluster Grenade to Grenade Capacity(5) instead. Also you can swap Damage Reduction(5) for Reave to Recharge Speed(5) if you feel the 10% is unnecessary

Personally for me, I use the Falcon with this character because it allows me to land pull on unprotected enemies without having to worry about em dodging it. Alternatively you can use any weapon you like, but try to keep the recharge speed as close to +200% as possible.

This build excels in small maps with tight spaces such as Firebase Glacier, all it take is Reave+Cluster Grenade to take out a group of enemies. When faced with unprotected enemies such as geth trooper, hit em with Falcon first before casting Pull on them to ensure that they don’t dodge it and cast Reave to finish the job. If you face a lone enemy with shields, take down the shield with your weapon first then do the Pull+Reave combo, but if you are facing a group with 2+ shielded enemies, you have the option of Reave+Cluster Grenade instead(If you want to save grenades, take down shields and pick em off with Pull+Reave).

N00b Rating: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)
2.5- This build requires you to actively search through ammo caches for grenades, also requiring you to land good grenade tosses. Take advantage of the fact that Falcon can stagger enemies. Ex. if you are up against geth, and there is a group of three to four pyros with one of them lagging behind, stagger the three in the front and wait for the 4th one to clump up, then Reave+Cluster Grenade to watch em all die to the biotic explosion. Other than that, this build is relatively simple to play, just play it like any other class.

ps. This build can take down Brutes with two Reave+Cluster Grenade combo on any difficulty.

Flotilla Pyro – by N2narcosis

Posted in ENGINEER, MULTIPLAYER BUILDS, Quarian Engineer with tags , , , , , , on March 14, 2012 by Lucien Midnight

Build Title: 
Flotilla Pyro – by N2narcosis

Power Evolutions:

Turret: Damage & Shields (4), AP (5), Flamthrower (6)
Incinerate: Damage (4), Burning Damage (5), Armor Damage (6)
Cryo Blast: N/A *
Quarian Defender: Damage & Capacity (4), Power Damage (5), Weapon Damage (6)*
Fitness: Durability (4), Shield Recharge (5), Durability (6)

* Alt. build: skip rank 6 defender for the first three ranks of cryo.

To taste with a 200% recharge bonus. I use Avenger X.


Turret position is key, with the flamethrower and AP upgrades it provides respectable damage soloing a cerb turret. Spam incinerate from cover on “heavy” targets, while letting your turret mop up the “weaklings”. One should always have the turret up, using it as almost a grenade.

N00b Rating: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for anyone!)
2.5. Turret positing can take a while to get used to, also the lack of an effective shield removal skill make reliance on teammate paramount. However, the ability to lockdown an area and destroy armor makes up for this.

Warlord – by Baerdface

Posted in Krogan Soldier, MULTIPLAYER BUILDS, SOLDIER with tags , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2012 by Lucien Midnight

Build Title:

Warlord – by Baerdface

Power Evolutions:

Fortification: Durability (4), Synergy (5), Durability (6)
Carnage: Radius (4), Incapacitate (5), Damage (6)
Inferno Grenade: N/A (had it maxed out on first roll, but didn’t find all that useful)
Krogan Berserker: Weapon Damage (4), Power Damage (5), Weapon Damage (6)
Rage: Melee Damage (4), Martial Artist (5), Fitness Expert (6)


Prefered shotgun is Geth Plasma shotty (any rare shotty you prefer, actually), since it has decent range. Got Carnifex with melee attachment as backup aswell. Or might use the lightest assault rifle I have as backup.  Katana is fine instead of plasma shotty, but then an assault rifle is must-have (again, if you have something rare that might work well with it, use it).


Build might seem silly, but I’ve never died with it on Silver, and doing fine when played carefully on Gold.  The tactic is to stick to your team and melee everything, especially stuff that gets close to them. Use carnage on groups of weaker enemies, Geth Plasma shotty on shielded ones and finish them off with melee.

Didn’t go for full survivability (durability, martial artist, fitness expert), cause 15% boost to health isn’t as much as 30% boost to nonrage melee and 30% to rage.

Noob rating: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)

2.5. If got enough credits to unlock enough spectre packs to get Krogan Soldier, I don’t think you’re much of a noob anymore. But anyway, it would be like 2-3, cause all you need is half a braincell to realize that you shouldn’t charge off alone. This krogan has quite a bit of HP/shields to stay alive.
