    I thought about going back to the earth powerset a bout a year ago … I just hate the stone skin build .. and I never liked brick tanking … I dunno why but stone skin feels very squishy .. I could be doing something wrong on my alt but even stuff lower than him he seems to struggle to keep
    His health from plummeting … I miss the old earth after the first fix I felt unstoppable

    So would you suggest strat grim and trans for a prec build ?

    Earth has one of the best SCs in the game. So personally I’d recommend using quislet over grim. Even for prec entomb hits like a truck. If you don’t have much SP to put into might after maxing out prec you could also use neo venom instead of entomb. But generally I’d stick with entomb

    Quizlet is slightly better than Grim, even for Precision, if you're looking absolute meta. Really they're about a wash up until rank 200 when Quizlet builds extra Supercharge.

    Personally I believe grim is fine at 160 if you aren’t running into power issues. Quislet unfortunately does need to be at 200 lol. But regardless, I do believe quislet is better. Grim imo is only better situationally and for specific powers imo

    Thanks to you both for the info.

    As far as might goes, Is Heat vision > Upheaval > Sandblast still the go to for Single target?

    Unstoppable > Tectonic Break > JH for AOE / melee?

    Or is there anything new? ( I know Whirling Dervish is the meta but I just don't wan to be beholden to SS lol. Character concept is important to me haha)

    Those are pretty much the go-to rotations yeah.
    For Might Quizlet becomes solidly better than Grim-- especially for Earth as you'll then definitely be using Entomb.

    H
    Hmmm. Decisions. Maybe I should feed my Grim into Quislet whenever a double XP day arrives.

    I should elaborate one more thing regarding grim vs quislet. The. Offset factor to grim is with your loadout. If you’re using a loadout that uses ti much power and in turn you end up having to use a less optimal loadout or rotation to maintain power than it is worth testing is using grim over quislet in order to use better rotaion will offset the damage you would lose by having grim as opposed to quislet.

    Using earth as an example, you can use jackhammer clipped into tectonic with a pet up and one slot for a SC. You can also use unstoppable which would increase the power cost by clipping tectonic with unstoppable. Additionally you can also use:

    Jackhammer/aftershock/tectonic/unstoppable > jackhammer/aftershock/tectonic > repeat and continue to go back into jackhammer off cooldown or slow down power consumption and only clipping tectonic when upstoppable is off cooldown to preserve power. Are you able to maintain the higher power cost rotation or do you skip every other tectonic or not use unstoppable to preserve power?

    Additionally, being able to clip the correct aftershock is also important for damage output of jackhammer. Not sure if this is still the case, but every other aftershock is weaker. So clipping the strong aftershock is a way to boost damage
