Need a good melee build

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I don't esper, so hopefully an esper veteran will chime in eventually. Also, try asking in /nexus while in-game.
Until then, I've theorycrafted this:

Try Psychic Frenzy, Reap, Concentrated Blade as builders

Haunt for debuff

Crush for Interrupt

[any self heal or maybe Pyrokinetic Flame for DoT (not sure if PK is a self heal or not)]

Projected Spirit for movement (also a self heal)

and Blade Dance as your spender.

I don't think I should venture into AMPs.

From what I hear, this will be fun for psyblade enthusiasts, as the animations for Concentrated and Dance use your psyblade model.

Good luck!

*I'm hoping this is okay, as I'm referencing an out of date talent builder for the above

Melee Esper is almost identical to ranged Esper. Swap Telekinetic Strike for Psychic Blades (T0) and otherwise keep everything the same. T8 Mind Burst (or Telekinetic Storm if you don't have the RMT set), T8 Concentrated Blade (although without the RMT set the value of this skill goes down a lot), T8 Haunt, T0 Reap, T0 Spectral Swarm. That gives you two slots for utility - one will normally be T4 Locus of Power for considerably more burst damage (drop Haunt to T4 if you don't have enough ability points) and then you should usually have Crush in the last slot. Projected Spirit and Fade Out are the situational skills that you'll often swap into these last slots if the fight requires them. Fixation in the last utility slot maximises damage but you'll normally need at least one out of a kick, mobility and cc break.

Just Jai's response is probably not what you're looking for when you say melee esper. 

One of my favorite guides for melee esper is Cam's "espers are like slingers but worse" guide that lists the ability point distribution, amps, and rotation. The link to it is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12SPr7a8749gP5SFej-zwSVoKBjOU4dqLLNLS6a_oWUQ/edit?usp=drivesdk


It is a bit old but the rotation and build are still accurate.
