Blade Armor needs a revamp

First off, I enjoy using the Batarian Soldier.  He is IMHO the best out of the SOldier class.  That said, he has two problems:

-> He gets stunned way to easily

-> Blade Armor straight sucks


Now, I can see a fun build with it, but let's be honest, he is commonly built 6/0/6/6/6 ignoring Blade Armor.  Some reasons:

-> DR is only 30% at best, which you must sacrifice the speed at which you can use Ballistic Blades at to even achieve

-> Tier 4 and 5 Melee evolutions are pointless and weak

Anyone else but me think Blade Armor needs to be reworked to be worth something?

Yeah Batarian soldier is easily one of my favorite character's(more ammo,falcon punch,high health&shields)

Blade Armor is a lot better maxed out I've actually killed phantom's with it although on the lower levels it needs to be buffed.

I got the Sentinel build and I wasn't sure what the armour did.  I thought it was some kind of Tech Armor where you'd fling knives at enemies at close range doing massive damage.  At least that's what I was lead to believe when I read DocHolliday and Evil Optimus arguing about the benefits of the build on Gold in one of the threads.

Ive not got the Soldier, but I assume its identical to the Sentinels. It really does need some serious buff, cos as it stands it only has two functions: looks pretty cool & the ability to reflect melee damage.

Coolest thing about Blade Armor..I killed something that also killed me.

I maxed it out on the Soldier but only 3'ed it with the Sentinel (I play with a guy who has a Turian Sentinel so we do the Warp/Shockwave Combo a lot)

I dunno. I like Blade Armor. Took out a Geth Prime on silver that decided to rush me because of it.

Blade armor saved me last night against a banshee who tried to grab me, only took down 3/4's of my shields instead of killing me like it always did with the turian soldier.

Good to know about the Banshees, gonna try and sucker punch one next time I play...:-)

A detonation ability on it would be very nice. Could possibly have a bleed/explosive effect like the blades.

What I said was, Blade Amour doesn't really do anything special except give you added protection, and damages enemies that melee you. I think you're mixing that up with Ballistic Blades...and yes, I took this character on gold and had a great time wth him, and beat the match.

 

After playing the infiltrator and adept classes for so long, using the Batarian Soldier and Sentinel is a fantastic change especially because of the Blade Armor.  There is nothing better than seeing:

Bedlam74 [Blade Armor] Phantom or

Bedlam74 [Blade Armor] Banshee or

Bedlam74 [Blade Armor] Ravasher or

Bedlam74 [Blade Armor] Brute

Equip your Batarian with the Kishook Harpoon gun (or the Graal Spike Thrower), charge it, shoot, then rush them and melee away. Note: Make sure the Banshee's barrier is down.

Silver and Gold require a bit more caution.  But I find it extremely fun on Bronze.
