Best Biotic Class?

What's the best biotic class in your opinion? Vanguard, sentinel or adept? I'm planning to start my seventh gameplay of all trilogy (I already have all assignments, but I want to play on insanity) and I want a biotic Shepard. I play as an adept most of time, so a change should be cool now. So, what do you think? Vanguard, sentinel or adept again?

Well for ME1 I'd go Sentinel with Singularity for your bonus power. You should have that unlocked if you always play the Adept class. That gives you almost the entire biotic arsenal available to the Adept class, AND Sabotage and Overload via Electronics/Decryption. Electronics also boosts your shield capacity, and by leveling that and Decryption your character can handle all the hacking. That leaves you free to choose your 2 squaddies however you desire instead of being forced to use Garrus or Tali in order to hack into locked containers and the like. For ME2 I'd go Vanguard, but I admit I simply don't care for the Adept in ME2. In ME3 I'd go Adept because biotic combos ftw lol! If you REALLY want to go different, why not play the Engineer class and get away from biotics altogether? That said, I have to confess that's my favorite class in all 3 games.

Thanks! I played as engineer one time and liked it, but now I'm doing my last gameplay and I wanted to it finish as a biotic (I love them so much haha). I never played as sentinel before (Ikr?) because I was a little obsess with adept (I love my biotic god Shepard XD). So I'll try now!

The sentinel is truly unique, sturdy and lethal for cqc because of his tech armor and if you pick the right bonus power almost immune to damag in ME3. here is a vid

I played mine as an immune damage melee tank. Was fun in his own ways.

You can play a sentinel like a soldier, engineer or adept. Use a weapon or your skills. Because he can strip all defences on his own, he is imo superior to an adept i ME2, when all enemys have shield/barrier and/or armor on insanity.

This leaves you with a free bonus skill slot..... ammo power.. or a tactical stasis... dominate is nice on occation.

The Vanguard is a complete different type of biotic warrior.
His bred and butter is his Charge Ability which should be used almost anytime, but tactical in ME2.

ME3 enchances the Vanguard with Nova. You end up using only 2 Skills..... Charge Nova Charge and so on. Funny as hell. But sometimes the charge is buggy in ME2 (Collector Ship and Base) and ME3 (especially OMEGA).
It takes some time to get used to the playstyle which can be frustrating in the beginning.

The transition from adept to sentinel is much smoother imo.
And both have the same max Weight Capacity in ME3 and Weapons Layout in ME2.... at least from the start.

Thanks! I've already started as sentinel 'cause I always use adept XD.
I'm excited for Andromeda too! I hope the game is good like all Mass Effect Trilogy (except for the end of ME3 XD) and doesn't look like Dragon Age Inquisition
