I don't really think there is much of a difference between Stasis Field and Insanity, especially after you hit Level 25. The choice between the two is purely down to what sort of path you want to take (LS or DS) and to save FPs. I'd say Insanity is marginally better since you can affect multiple targets a lot sooner than the light side option.


Death-field looses hands down compared to the lightning storm. I almost never bother with it since the vitality you might gain from using it is little, compared to what you can get from using master heal or some of the stronger medpacs.

Eh, unfortunately the Dark Side Powers are always more effective. The Light Side powers are usually buffs and they're either ineffective or the fight is over when you've finally applied them.

"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

I tend to like insanity because you spend the game fighting DS characters, but I usually don't use either... And Storm. Most definitely.

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

Hm, kind of thought most people would think the edge would go to Insanity, but how about Force Crush or Force Storm. Another question I forgot to put in. Though, one thing is that if your vitality is like maybe 12 points out of say like 300, and going into a room with 5 enemies in it, using Death Field, even if all them save it, you'll still possibly get around 90+ vitality healed.
