Titan Arc 3.0 Abilities, Aspects & Fragments
The purpose of this Titan build is to recharge extremely fast your arc abilities, for that, you will be constantly creating Ionic Traces. And with the Storm Grenade and Touch of Thunder Aspect working together you will constantly generate them.
Super – Thundercrash is definitely one of the best Titan arc Supers for dealing damage, so use it.
Class Ability – If you like the walls for protection keep with the Towering Barricade. But the Thruster brings more mobility to the Titan build, this new ability allows it to dodge to the side quickly. It can be beneficial for close distance on enemies or the other hand increases the distance from them in a tight situation.
Movement Ability – Strafe Lift is a jump with good speed and you can do a second jump in the air with strong directional control.
Melee Ability – For melee, the Thunderclap deals a lot of area damage but needs to be charged so, it can take some time to get used. The Seismic Strike deals area damage and blinds targets.
Grenade Ability – Storm Grenade is a must-have for this Titan Arc 3.0 build. It is very powerful in dealing area damage over time, excellent to clear groups of opponents. Combined with the Touch of Thunder will jolt enemies and create Ionic Traces.
Knockout – Melee range and damage increase for a short period of time after critically wounding a target or breaking their shield. Also, killing targets with melee ability get you amplified and start health regeneration.
Touch of Thunder – This Aspect enhances the functionality of Flashbang, Pulse, Lightning, and for the ones, you will use in this Titan build, Storm Grenades. These create a roaming thundercloud that tracks nearby targets and fires lightning bolts at foes beneath it.
