It should be noted that, as usual, I received a complaint (*gasp!*) for the last video stating that I always post video of my builds surviving the powerhouse but never in actual content. The claim was that I do this to cover up how weak they really are, you know, with me being a charlatan and all...
I read this and laughed. Your builds have been invaluable to me in learning how to build CO characters. I've tried several of them myself and can attest to how strong they are. Heck, the character I've been playing this weekend is a variant on Saga Venefica. Don't let comments like that get to you.
More on topic: the build looks really interesting. Melee isn't normally my thing, but I may have to bookmark this thread and give it a try.
As you will notice the only power I had to drop was Ebon Rift to stick in Parry so the power flow would work. I'm toying with dropping some ranks on second travel power to add Elusive Monk. Any thoughts?
I have used many of your builds and really appreciate the detail you put into your posts... makes it much easier to learn!

I would say with the power choices from 1-17 you have a functional build on the offensive side. After that its much to you what you take. If you take Elusive Monk and also a piece of dodge/avoidance gear you can also take BCR. You could also go Dex/Int use conviction as another heal and MSA as energy unlock
Here's a lvling version of Ken's build above. All I did was move the ability's around and try to make them fit into a lvling build.
: Level 40 Champion
Powers: Level 1: Rain Of Steel Level 1: Form of the Tempest Level 6: Blade Tempest Level 6: Superspeed Level 8: Void Shift Level 11: Quarry Level 14: Bountiful Chi Resurgence Level 17: Dragon's Wrath Level 20: Eye Of The Storm Level 23: Masterful Dodge Level 26: Summon Shadows Level 29: Shadow Shroud Level 32: Molecular Self-Assembly Level 35: Ego Surge Level 35: Blazing Speed Level 38: Grasping Shadows
Talents and everything else is the same as above.
When you get Dragons Wrath and Eye of the Storm Blade Tempest becomes useless. Well there won't be a need for you to use it. I couldn't find anything to put into this slot that was useful. I might just not have been looking hard enough. Now there is one ability that I left out that's Planar Fracture. Its a lvl 35+ Ultimate ability. I couldn't find anywhere to put it so I left it out... Now I arrange this build from a low lvl players point of view. I'm going to be trying this build out tomorrow from 12-20 and see if it works. I'll comment on it then...
rezqay: Hey the builds are great, but sometimes it's hard to follow them, since 2016 they changed some trees. Like munitions. [Two-Gun-Mojo] can't be taken so early and for ew people it may be hard to understand what they are missing.

SatoruMasamune: New Jersey? Try New Mexico for heat. Summer starts in April out here and doesn't end until Halloween.
