Looking for recommendations for an Insanity build for someone new to Mass Effect. Any help would be appreciated.

Incinerate + energy drain + tactical cloak/overload

Take soldier passives that boost defense and weapon damage, use infiltrator profile

Start with biotic training. Ignore it early but it lets you take the barrier passive once you've maxed out the solider and tech defensive trees.

Sniper rifles are good, but feel free to branch out if you find another weapon that feels powerful.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

I was new also playing insanity. My rec is to not hesitate to respec to find what fits your play style. For the life of me I couldn't get the above infiltrator setup to work for me. Just didn't fit my style of play and I kept getting stomped. Now I play full biotic with a sniper rifle. Maybe not the best but it just feels right.

Good luck!

That's the build I beat Insanity mode with and videos you can draw resources from. You don't have to follow it exactly: just take what you like out of it.

As far as the first 10 levels go how would you spend your points with that build?

Get Overload and lance to 2, get Tactical Cloak BAA route ASAP, Tech Team Support to 6 for Tech HP regen ASAP, then Combat Fitness to 4 B to get Regen and HP regen cap.

Just build up Profile 1 with as much Passivea as possible before moving on. You should cap out that profile before 40 easily.

I'm starting to feel like tactical cloak + anything is going to be money in the bank. I had no idea it'd be so useful. Enemies not only can't see you, they completely forget you exist. You can use it for everything - run up next to an enemy and scope him in the middle of the head, run away from trouble, go heal your teammates. It's so incredibly effective that I don't think I'll be able to go back to a build without it.
