Overview Edit

Willpower is a Resistance powerset that was added in Issue 11. It is available to all four melee Archetypes, primary for Tankers, secondary for Scrappers, Brutes, and Stalkers. A video of this set in action is available from the Official movie page.

Willpower relies heavily on passive powers, with little in the way of flashy animations, to represent the stereotypical "tough guy". The set offers decent resistance to smashing, lethal, psi and toxic damage, as well as poor resistance but decent defense to fire, cold, energy and negative energy. The set also offers a taunt aura called "Rise to the Challenge" that raises regeneration for every enemy in melee.

You aren't Invulnerable. Bullets don't bounce off of you, and if you are cut, you bleed. You are, however, tough, grizzled and strong willed. It takes more than a little cut to keep you down! Willpower offers a strong balance of healing, damage resistance and defense. While you have no real vulnerabilities, you can't quite deal with 'alpha strikes' as well as some other protective powers.

Willpower RiseToTheChallenge Rise to the Challenge Edit

The more the odds are against you, the more determined you become. When surrounded by foes, your ability to regenerate health increases greatly. Additionally, your resolve and the look in your eye is enough to leave most foes shaken, so their attacks are less accurate. The first foe you engage in melee grants the highest regeneration bonus, and up to 10 foes can contribute to this effect.
