This build is for using that first talent, which I didn’t care for very much at first— but the damage resistance in the air at 20% from Air Supremacy works very well with the heal from Hell or High Water.

40% recoil reduction from Clean Shots makes it even easier to land her shots while airborne, and the damage reduction makes it feel a little less worthless. But it is very important to time Octavias hover so that you are not a super easy target. Also don’t bump your noggin when you’re hoppin, it’s a big waste..

An extra 10% jump height from High Ground doesn’t seem like much, but the extra reach is pretty helpful on most siege maps. And as added bonus it helps keep you farther from the enemy team when you are floating with your damage resistance and recoil reduction.

The New Boots and Fire and Maneuver cards help make your overall movement feel much better and although it doesn’t negate likely having to pick up nimble, being able to actually move while shooting makes her so much less clunky.
