Free will is amazing at defending against tick tock. It shields you for 500% of your instinct (main stat as a psycho class), and heals you for a good bit too.

I would put on at least 2 free wills on the skill pallet and take off one of the shock therapy. Face it, the only time it's really beneficial to attack the Baron is when he has holy scars, which lasts only for like 2 rounds at a time. Getting his focus down to zero is much more important than doing insignificant attacks in the face of his 95k health (in heroic mode).

I'm doing horrible; my vitality is only about 30 with equipment, which either means psych has a horrible base vitality or I need to find better equipment. I'm stuck at zone 2, because I'm getting 2-shotted.

I don't doubt that you've been successful with your Shadow Build. I'm glad you enjoy it.

However, I have also tried exactly the build you have described and came to the simple conclusion that it is inefficient, unreliable, and has lower damage output than the build I have described.

As I mentioned, there is definitely more than one viable build. I am not even convinced that my build is optimal. I'm not here to start a debate or argue for one build over another. I have presented my opinion and I can guarantee you that my strategy works very well and can beat the game easily on any difficulty level. Other strategies may also work.

Never mind. I stopped focusing on intel and gave myself some str/vitality based equipment. HP jumped from 1k to 1.5k.

This is pretty much the build that I have, but I dont use free will (or havent yet, I will check it out)

Remember to keep your allies on "phalanx" mode and just wail on baddies. Wraith form and Electrical storm are great when silenced.

I regularly crit for 6K in wraith form at level 25 with 501 instinct.

Okay, I need some advice. I want to know if I should invest a lot of my points into vitality, because I'm getting one-shotted in zone 4 and 5. Or am I not getting the correct equipment / abilities?

No, If you really need the hit points, go get "Tenacity" or find an android body piece for +76 vitality. That should do you fine. Remember to set your allies to "phalanx" or the left button next to their names before you select your attack.

Alright, well, I havn't used psycho in heroic mode yet, (i finished it with hydro and am currently working on it with bio), but here is my take from finishing it on challenging. If you can't defend yourself even after maxing out tenacity and using free will almost 100% of the time (so that you are always shielded), then is the time to think about getting some vitality equips/distributing some attribute points to vitality.
