I have a read several posts on here and it seems most people say take either proton or disruptor due to the amount of skill points it takes to level up. Some also love tetryon which takes a little more. What i want to know is if antiproton and polaron are better? Because really they should be they should either have some wicked ability or higher innate dps both of which seems not to be the case. The only benifit i can verify to antiproton is the easy ability to attain purple epics which should not be the motivator behind taking the weapons ideally u can obtain purps in all weapons. Does anyone know if this is actually the case? or are antiproton and polaron better?
The tree was designed with NO skill cap in mind. Very few things make sense under the skill cap mandate. Most of the skill system needs to be revamped if they want to keep the skill cap, but I don't think whoever was dumb enough to add the skill cap in the last minute will admit that.
The only possible advantage i see to using any of the exotic weapon types is that other players and npc's may have less of a damage resistance versus said weapon type. other wise just choose your favorite color and pew pew because 2.5% bonus effect isn't really going to make that big of a difference.
