Sonic Resonance

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

Sonic Resonance is a standard power set that is primary set for Defenders and a secondary set for Controllers, Corruptors, and Masterminds.

Powers

SonicDebuff Dispel.png Clarity

By bouncing a carefully pitched sound wave off an ally's ear drum, you can free them from any Disorient, Hold, Sleep, Confusion, Fear, or Immobilize effects, and leave them resistant to such effects for a good while. Protection will improve with multiple applications and as you advance in level. Clarity also provides your ally enhanced perception.
