Acrobatics as a powerset/for attacking

    Just for fun, as a silly alt, I wondered if a character who only uses attacks from the Acrobatics set has any viability. And I do not mean in the meta. Just wondering if the damage is at all comparable to regular attacks. In particular, the flip attacks. There are Forward Flip, Backflip, launching roll, and Devastating flip (sc). I also wonder if, while flipping, there is any damage reduction or dodge component.

    Also, if you were to use this, what artifacts? Just the regulars (trans, strat, grim/quis)?

    Throwing knives, Zip Tie, and Grapple Line attack all do decent damage for their power cost. The Animation for Throwing Knives is a little on the long and annoying side.

    Throwing Knives used to be great. I remember using it to tank.
    Now not so much.
