New sets:

Beam Rifle (Blasters, Corruptors, Defenders)
Staff Fighting (Tanks, Brutes, Scrappers, Stalkers?)
Street Justice (Tanks, Brutes, Scrappers, Stalkers)
Time Manipulation (Defenders, Corruptors, Controllers, Masterminds)
Titan Weapons (Tanks, Brutes, Scrappers, Stalkers?)

Proliferation:

Blaster: Dark Blast (primary), Dark Manipulation (secondary)
Controller: Poison (secondary)
Defender: Thermal Radiation (primary), Fire Blast (secondary)
Scrapper: War Mace (primary), Battle Axe (primary), Energy Aura (secondary)
Tanker: Super Reflexes (primary), Martial Arts (secondary)
Brute: Broadsword (primary), Katana (primary), Regeneration (secondary)
Corruptor: Psychic Blast (primary), Poison (secondary)
Mastermind: Sonic Resonance (secondary)
Stalker: Ice Armor (Secondary)

I'm thinking of, in no particular order:

Beam Rifle/Poison Corruptor (probably the ultimate single target killer in the game)
Super Reflexes/Martial Arts Tank (With the +Def from Storm Kick it should be able to hit 60+% defense very easily, pretty awesome)
Something/Ice Armor Stalker (HABAKKUK THE FROZEN)
Psychic Blast/Something Corruptor (PSYTHON, I knew I got that name on Virtue for a reason!)
Street Justice/Something Something (named U MAD, because I have the name on Virtue >.>)

And that's really all I've got. I don't know enough about how Street Justice, Staff Fighting, or Titan Weapons will play mechanically to pick a good combination (though Titan Weapons with its 'momentum' mechanic that makes attacks speed up seems perfect for Brutes). A lot of the other choices would've interested me in the past, but Mace/Axe/EA for scrappers seems a bit late to the party now, same thing with BS/Kat/Regen for Brutes (and I hear Regen is more than lacklustre for brutes right now). I wanted a Demons/Sonic MM, but I've got a Demons/Forcefields one already, so I think it would play too similarly to something I have already.

Dark Manipulation for Blasters has me kind of excited, because there's some great stuff in there, but I don't know what I'd pair it with for the primary: Dark Blast on my Dark/Kin Corr turned me off to the set so hard I refuse to make a Dark Blast anything again.

Anyone else got any cool ideas for the new stuff? (And did I miss any upcoming power sets? I *think* I got them all, but it's entirely possible one slipped by me.)

Still wanting Ice Armor for Brutes, Devs, some day, please >.>
