Thorn between Sasha badge setup.

So my Sasha has always been 100% offense. That has helped me a lot of times but also many got me into 1 hit struggle failure.

Many better players than me are suggesting Sasha devensive setup and they say its working well.

Just to let you know I'm considering rsl 34 and above.

So here it goes.

    Old offensive setup nr 1

    New defensive setup nr 2


    On setup 2 that's the best I could do unfortunately without shape bonus but it only takes to have assault on the team and shell be 80 dr without armor.

    So what you guys think?

    This setup at least will keep me from loosing her on early rsl 32 in the distance like an idiot 😆

    @bladgier your DR badges are perfect for her , I would trade the crit damage badges for damage badges though, reasoning is this . Damage badges affect Damage and crit damage ;whereas crit damage badges only affect crit damage.
    Damage + on a weapon (lethal) only adds 15% damage whereas Destructive adds 60%Crit damage (which is equal to 3 legendary Crit Damage badges) so point being , you can make up the missing crit damage much easier . Hope that made sense ... here's my Sasha badges . She runs just about 80% DR with an assault in team (so basically always) and that armor

    I often wish I had a second Sasha to config in defensive mode, but I don't so it's 100% AGRO OFFENSE BABY!

    You're all making me super jealous! How do you get all those sweet badges? Simple farming?

    I got a few tips on meat shield Sasha and must admit I was apprehensive at first but then I gave it a shot. Best thing I ever did. With destructive/ruthless on weapon/armour she still packs a punch and my stars have really improved since then.

    Blad those bottom two DR badges are a thing of beauty, it's a shame you can't get a set out of them. It would be 55-56% with those two alone, her IS trait would bump up to 70 and you'd only need silver iron skin on armour to max. You would free up a badge slot that way for a health or crit damage badge :smile:

    Thanks for your responses.

    So I have it a go and went on a few rsl 31 missions with the devensive setup. It was a pain for me, definitely doesn't suit my playstyle. I'm already back on offense.


    I can see what you're saying @Japes87 but instead I'd like to bump up critical damage as far as possible with critical damage badges and destructive on the weapon.

    Even though damage increase helps both damage and critical damage, there's no way it will boost up critical damage itself, more than critical damage badges/weapon trait.

    I want to stack em up as high as possible and get maximum punch I can get.

    Reason why I'm not using critical damage weapon on her on those screens is only because the one I've got is lvl 26 and it hurts my eyes too much.

    No wait... I forgot about this one.





    It doesn't have incendiary though and I'm very used to using it now especially on Sasha.

    One thing is certain, Sasha is awesome no matter how you use her.

    It's funny how you start your discussion with 'just to let you know I'm considering RSL 34 and up' and then change her back after a few RSL 31 missions :wink:

    My advice would be to do what I did. Have a screen shot ready of a max damage set up, play through the entire challenge to get a feel for it, see how she manages when it comes to the really high rounds and make a final decision at lunch time Monday. This challenge set is different than most recently, there aren't too many maps where you need to take a beating really.

    @WellyLuga that's because damage reduction on her did not meet my expectations on rsl 31 on my way to 34 so I won't bother trying on 34, that's my point. No need to pick on words like that...
  • WellyLugaWellyLuga Member Posts: 2,608
    I was only poking fun, I thought the wink emoji would show I was just having a bit of a laugh. At 80% it won't always save a bruise at 31+ but you can often tank 2 hits at 34 so perhaps you had your expectations too high?
  • bladgierbladgier Member Posts: 2,126
    @WellyLuga cool 👍

    You're probably right, my expectations are too high.

    I'd expect not to bruise from 31 and take about 2-3 hits before struggle on 34.

    You might have been caught with an unlucky crit which might have hit top end damage to take you over the threshold. But it's at 33/34 where it really shines, it's the difference between 5-6 before death and 2.

    Plus if you're cheap like me it's the difference between a 30 min/7 gold cost and a 2 hour/24 gold cost :lol:

    I've got The choice of 1000 more health or 17% damage reduction (only damage reduction badge) which is "better"?
  • FirekidFirekid Member Posts: 2,682
    Which is better?
  • Andy_bAndy_b Member Posts: 107

    This recommendation coming from Japes make it really valid. Though my main problem is that I play when Sasha is often my main and only firepower. Running sets with assault&bruiser/2 assaults etc.I can't imagine doing it without extra critical damage badges. Im not the top dog in the game for sure so maybe Im doing something wrong, but I got to 2k stars this challenge so Im not some moron either.

    It's great how there are so many ways to play the game!

    Japes was the one who gave me the final nudge towards meat shield Sasha. I had decent success this challenge with Sasha, bruiser/assault and a ruthless shooter loaded with damage/crit damage. I'm certainly not a top dog either and I also scraped 2k this week :smile:
