I can have one or the other, which would you choose?
I have photonic shockwave now and I do like the skill, if for no other reason than the fact that it is basically a "GET THE _#)$^#^ OFF ME" move. But sucking the energy from mine enemy and buffing my own stores seems pretty nice, and probably more practical, at least one on one.
Hmm, not sure. I still have to test PS II on 9 as well as ES. But I think you are better off sticking to shockwave. You might want to take a look a tractor beam repulsor, ifyou like pushing people away . Expect some flames in pvp though ^^. You can spoil kills.
