Overview

ParagonMarket PowerSet WaterBlast.png
Water Blast is a primary power set for Blasters and Corruptors, and a secondary power set for Defenders. This premium power set is available for 800 Paragon Points on the Paragon Market for Free and Premium Players; VIP Players must also purchase this set.

"Water Blast grants you command over the power of water. This can be used to weaken and crush your foes with all the power of a tidal wave. Some Water Blast powers allow the user to build Tidal Power, while others consume Tidal Power. You can have 3 stacks of Tidal Power on yourself at a time. Your Tidal Power can be released to strengthen your Water Spout, Water Jet and Geyser powers. Using these powers will remove some or all of your Tidal Power."
