I sometimes have the sound off, so I'm not too worried about the sound effects of the powers.

AR/devices is a bit subar comapared to other secondaries especially in large teams.

Archery got a major overhaul in issue 7 and isnt so bad but still high end cost and long animations with the bow and lethal damage makes it about the same for AR

Sonics has a aoe sleep -res from all the attacks but lacks a snipe i belive, (i could be wrong but i dont think so) with the - res your damage will have a snowball effect for the most part, and sonic also does smashing damage.

sonics is the better new blaster set.

for secondary i would pick energy manipulation, but i have 2 lvl 50 blasters with energy manipulation

electric/energy/ice is pretty good utlility to go with sonic

archery i would pick electric/energy/ice in that order for the fact of power sink for the heavy end costs

MY PERSONAL OPINION

Primarys
Electric: with the new end drain working on precents instead of numbers end drain is effective for the slightly lower damage out put and has higher acc then most other sets. combined with power boost from the energy primary you can solo 51 bosses easy with little risk unless your multi fighting several of them with no insperations (i have a elec/energy lvl 50 blaster) but also is energy damage so as resisted as others

Energy is just good fun with the knockback ragdoll effects pretty high damage but can anger some people in teams but can be effective soloing tool also if you put fly on your blaster you can blast from above the mobs and turn the knock back into knockdown which can be effective but takes skill and practice to do it right

AR went over*

Archery has 75 base acc instead of a 65 base acc but i already went over that in another post

Fire has HIGH damage output for the massive aoe goodness and paried with aoe holds/imbolizes rain of fire in issue 7 will be buffed by build up and aim which will almost be a mini nuke but if mobs arent locked down they will run and run fast. BUT the secondary effect of fire is DoT can be usefull against stalkers in pvp to interupt assassin strike BUT in pve if you dont pair it with a secondary that has a low lvl hold or sleep or get an epic with it i dont recomand for pve for a blaster utlitiy is KEY i.e. electric has end drain

sonic i went over a bit

ice has high single target damage 2 holds isnt resisted much and has slow but for aoe its not the hotest power set (pun intended ha ha ha) bilzzard can be casted around corners though which is cool

lol problem is blappers/blaster are exteremly challanging since they dont have a secondary that midigates damage per say or mez protection outside of aidself for disorient acrobatics for hold/knockback and health for sleep res but health is a waste of a power aidself takes aid other or the clearmind power to get and acrobatics locks you into super jump.

your best def as a blaster is sleeps/holds/stuns and high damage out put or using strategy


*edit*

if you wanted to be really creative in a FoTM way you could do a spine or claws scrapper and have a bit of range.
