For PVE & PVP what Helix option do you guys pick?
For starters I want to say I usually run with Regen/AtkDmg/AtkSpd and my method of fighting with Phoebe is I just run up to the enemy and stab them in the face
I ask this question because I’ve been playing her a lot and am 50/50 with picking [The Conduit] and [Close-Quarters Training] due to my playstyle
When I unlocked CQT I thought “Yay! Something that would be just for me!” since I’m always in the enemy face but in just eye-balling through several matches it doens’t seem like the 100% damage works or is wonky. I’m literally in the face of the enemy and do my Blade Rush but the damage is pathetic. I even pick the exploding swords
I do want to add though that I’ve noticed when I hit people with exploding Blade Rush it won’t do “that” much damage as to when I seem to aim at their feet or on the ground next to them. So maybe the mechanics of exploding Blade Rush + CQT is wonky?
Even in base the 12% from skill [The Conduit] seems like a better choice as it looks like it does more damage. And this is even before any of the shield buffs. I don’t spec for +max shield or +skill damage. I know if you spec into that Blade Rush does great damage but I feel my power is in my quick & powerful melee strikes
I’m just stating between those 2 Helix options what gives more bang for the buck?
(And the 3rd option isn’t even really a contender since who snipes with Phoebe?)
