Invulnerability

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

Invulnerability is a standard power set that is a primary set for Tankers and a secondary set for Brutes, Scrappers, Sentinels, and Stalkers.

"Invulnerability gives you incredible abilities to resist damage and other effects. Its resistance to physical damage is superior, however, Invulnerability offers no protection from Psionic attacks."

Invulnerability Hide.png Hide

Hide makes you almost impossible to detect. When properly 'Hidden', a Stalker can pull off Critical hits with his attacks, and even land a massive 'Assassins Strike' with an Assassin's power. When you attack or are damaged while using this power, you will be discovered. Even if discovered, you are hard to see and retain some bonus to Defense. Unlike most stealth powers, Hide can be used at the same time as other Concealment powers, giving you even greater stealth capability. No Endurance cost.
