Champions Online – Kitty’s Lightning Reflexes Build

Update: A revised build without reliance on Evasive Maneuvers can be found here.

Quick demo of a Lightning Reflexes build. 100% dodge is possible but knocks keep interrupting it so you can’t really maintain 100% on Gravitar 🙁 Still, very nice damage mitigation and an amazing passive for solo survivability. I wouldn’t recommend for tanking though, Thundering Kicks isn’t very good for drawing aggro. Especially when you’re backflipping every 8 seconds.

Gear stats are shown at the end of the video. Read on for Kitty’s build.

Champions Online Lightning Arc Ranged DPS Guide


Lately I’ve been adjusting Aeria’s build a little. Thematically she’s Crystal’s straight-laced sister and rival mage. She’s been built around Stormbringer and high crit Hurricanes ever since the Wind set was released, with a few short-lived forays into Infernal, Fire and Lightning.

Ultimately, I really liked the damage of Lightning Arc and the ease of use of Hurricane, and Stormbringer was the perfect passive to bring those two together with a fitting visual for her theme. Other than the core powers of Stormbringer, Hurricane and Lightning Arc though, the rest of her build was always in the air. Her build has gone through enough iterations that I felt it warranted a guide.

I have been using an Ice build on Crystal for a month now, and I’m really liking how it performs.

Simply looking at my DPS chart, it may appear to be an average powerset, but there are few tricks it can pull, as this video shows:

Champions Online DPS Chart

Update 8/8/14: A more updated version is currently being maintained by Flowcyto HERE

This is an updated version of the original DPS chart posted on I have added the new powers added in the Night Avenger update, as well as more recent adjustments to powers like Two-Gun Mojo. The test character used was a Level 40 character in Hybrid mode with no gear and no talents.

This chart reflects direct, unconditional damage dealt by a power. Hence, I have taken the liberty to omit low damage utility powers like lunges and pulls, and highly conditional powers and DoTs, as it would be difficult to represent them fairly in such a list. However, there were some notable exceptions that made it in due to having high enough damage to compete with pure damage dealing powers, like Heat Wave and Seismic Smash.

The version on this blog only shows the Energy per Second (EPS), Damage per Second (DPS) and Damage per Energy per Second (DPES). A link to download the full version is provided at the end.
