How to make a great speedster?
Of course the Travel Power Super Speed is a given.
I want tons of evade/dodge whatever and fast attack. Sadly though I am n00b and have no idea where to start.
I'm thinking Martial Arts and... something else. :p
I don't really want to go full blown Martial Arts. This game doesn't have enough hand to hand. What would be cool for a speedy guy?

I would go dual swords, very quick attacks with that one.

Sure a good place.. Teh travel skill is fun almost too fast to control in Lairs but i n the open desert its great..
IF you test the Acrobatics skill it gives you some of the Speed slower on foot but both work fine..
I have had each in Beta
See if they meet your play style goals... Also in the CN Post Crisis you get a mission Reward Called Feline Serum.. That acts like a second travel power at a level range or around 12-14..
so its a great bonus item.. IT slots as a Primary Utility.. The item has been wrecked a little from Closed Beta but it was a keeper in Open Beta and lots of fun to try out.
Gives you Acro Skills Speed Boost helps dex jump skill some and good +8 to a couple of stats...
downside is it doesn't always work when you click on it.. and has a long recharge time to balance it out.
For weapons all are fun and you find mission rewards that boost your stats as Enhancements or Power replacers.. that add effects to the melee weapons.. lce fire electrical toxic.. lots of things.. when they get unlocked.. Some unlock right away for full use others you have to go to a Tailor and pay a small fee..
The MArtial Arts Lunge attack and lightning reflexes give you some of that play around with them when you have more experience with the system you can try a Custom frame work and blend the two together
Flash and Bash the Critters real good.
ya ya Dual swords was great fun.. when I picked up Dual Blades of Flurry enhancement it was super Ice damage and STR DEX +.. and the damage per hit plus speed carves a good piece of evil hide..
