Of the recommendations listed here. I just prefer sirens chant over the cloak... Orbs dont seem to help me much but then again i havnt maxed out on the cloaks level.
He has the best God based weapons in the game if you ask me. Lance is beasty, Maul has endless combo potential when using the wall, and both his swords you can't go wrong with.
Offensively I always add at least one Artemis with the Minotaur Hammer 25PP
Use Kraken Armor with weapons that have effective special attacks. No need to have cooldown with Melee based special attacks.
I have a very succesful set up for my Poseidon. I play him like a complete damage sponge. Heres my armor set up:
Manticore Armor (Helmet)
Manticore Armor (Chest Plate)
Manticore Armor (Lower)
Magic: Oblideration (Ice Maelstrom if you haven't reached the elite levels yet)
Item: The blue shield for mana regeneration
Relic: Relic of Resilience. This goes extremely well with the full Manticore armor. Your basically unkillable with this set up.
Weapon: Any hammer. I prefer the Gladiator Hammer. Combo combo combo.
With this loadout, I play as a tanking warrior. It takes a bit longer to kill, due to his inferior base damage, but your ridiculous survivability and physical resistance more than makes up for it. Just watch out for Zeus players. The elemental power will cut through you like a hot knife through butter
alright thank you everybody for the pointers. i think im gonna give a try with full manticore and poseidon armors...
iv been running with kraken helmet, artemis chest, and morpheus leg armor, changing weapons between the mjolnir and spear of poseidon. I dont like the sword of poseidon personally. cant do any good with it.
This set up iv been using has had some success but mostly failures... so im gonna try some of these suggested set ups next time i get on. I was always hesitant about maxing out his physical resistance even though its poseidons specialty, because i wanted to be able to dish out good phys damage. but being able to take more hits would be helpful simply because damage isnt his strong point anyway.. so yeah. high phys resistance would actually make more sense to use. Im just so used to the other characters maxing on phyisic or ele damage so setting up a character with defensive specials is a pretty different game..
