4e - Help with an elf face-infiltrator adept
« on: (07:36:23/12-29-16) »
Hi, I've been reading this forum for a while now but I've just registered to show you my adept. Thanks in advance.

I wanted to build an adept (it'd be my first time playing one) and at first I leaned towards a troll and I've managed to come up with a decent build. But I felt it was a bit lacking, he could punch very hard and send arrows through tanks thanks to the MRSI software but was quite useless outside combat. I tried giving him astral perception and astral combat abilities to make him more versatile but frankly I remained very weak compared to what any mage could do. So I've decided to give up on the troll and built an elf adept instead. I'm fairly pleased with the result, he's good in combat, with Master of 1000 faces should be a fun infiltrator and is also a decent face (at first I made him SURGE to get glamour/vomeronasal apparel but I felt it would ruin the infiltrator part). I couldn't decide whether I should go for 6 magic or not.

I also have 3BP and 175 nuyen left. That means I can lower my intuition to 3, remove the kick attack and raise my magic to 6 (but is it a good idea?). I know having a real weapon could be good but using my fists is much more stealthy IMO.

You've got a slight glitch with the Quizzel Fairy/Dragon Wings on all of your armor.

Quote from: Attitude pg. 153
Other similar fashion designs include Quizzel mechanical fairy and dragon wings, and a high-collar linked cloak from Kallabos’ one-time protégé Aita Ramirez.

They are actual Wings sticking out of the back of the armor/clothing to which you've added them.

Stacking a set on the Form-fitting body armor, the Mortimer of London: Greatcoat, and the SecureTech PPP Armor won't work physically there is no place for the wings on the under pieces to get out.
