Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Guide: Human Adept Spotlight
The human adept is probably the weakest of all the adepts. The humans have warp, which is very useful, but the alternate abilities are singularity and shockwave, both of which aren’t very good. The advantage that these do pose is that either can set off a biotic explosion with any other if you set them off in a certain order and the powers are effective against anything you can face.
Leveling the Human Adept
As usual you have a choice to make between being effective against any enemy or being effective a particular kind of enemy, namely enemies with only health or armor. This portion is much more powerful than being effective against anyone, but you are virtually useless if you face somebody with a shield or barrier. If you want to be versatile level shockwave and warp. Otherwise singularity and warp will do the trick. I don’t recommend using singularity and schockwave together because either of them are only really useful for biotic explosions which are hard to achieve due to the limited range of shockwave.
Warp is a very general skill and thus I have written a full guide explaining how to use it effectively. You can find that post here. It should be a part of any class that offers it as a class ability because it is so powerful in a variety of circumstances.
Shockwave is powerful versus groups of enemies, but it is hard to aim and has limited range. I have written a very comprehensive guide explaining all the ins and outs of shockwave which you can find here. The article comes to the conclusion that you shouldn’t use shockwave with an passive class, which the human adept very much is. As an adept you support the team in taking out stronger enemies, taking care of shields and providing the means for biotic explosions for other squat members. In essence you are there to make sure that the main slayer has an easy time.
I have also written a guide for leveling and using sinhularity here. I recommend you use warp and singularity to set off biotic explosions. Singularity is actually very versatile in that it also assists you if you use weapons, but without a doubt for the human adept biotic explosions are better.
Human Adept Combat Strategies
The human adept is a support class. The combination of warp and a vanguard charging around is probably the best combination of biotic powers possible.
The main way that you can kill is using singularity and then warp on enemies which causes biotic explosions. Beware though that singularity only works on enemies without shields. This actually means that the human adept isn’t very useful on its own if an enemy has shields. You can use warp and shockwave, even on enemies that have shields, barriers or armor, to set off a biotic explosions, but shockwave is very difficult to use for the human adept since it is an aggressive power.
Stay with your team and always watch that your team has an escape route if you get overwhelmed. Your only effective power against boss enemies is warp and shockwave if they get close. Warp is most effective on armor but can be used to set off biotic explosions even on shields, barriers and health. Keep this in mind when you choose whether you want to take out a boss or the weaker targets around it.
Overall the human adept isn’t very useful. I found that when I was using it the team was even struggling with the bronze challenge. I don’t know whether that was because I can’t use the human adept very well or because the human adept sucks (probably a mixture of both) but I didn’t have very much fun with it. The asari and drell adept are much more fun, in fact I have written guides for both of them:
