    No other hideouts will be added.

    Known Issue: The weekly store is not accepting current event currency. We'll have this fixed next week (and extend the store a week).​​

    Few questions:

    1) Where can we get Key to The City Perk? I don't see it on the perk list. (How to Achieve would also be useful please)

    2) News article posted refers to a Retro Destroyer Action Figure in Q Store. There isn't a tab for this, will this be added later or?

    Was going to post this in PTS notes but there weren't any for this week.

    Just curious, would it be at all possible to allow the option for the qularr poison rifle device to use your existing assault rifle skin, or is that beyond the limitations of devices? Knowing how old power replacers used to work, I wouldn't imagine so. But it would be really cool to be able to use it with characters that don't match the qularr colors and style.
  • kaiserin#0958 kaiserin Posts: 2,812 Cryptic Developer
    The default weapon for the device is the qularr one, but if you have a assault rifle weapon picked out in the tailor it will use that skin already.​​
  • panthrax77panthrax77 Posts: 309 Arc User
    Oh wow, awesome! Should've tested on the PTS before asking.

    Thanks for the confirmation!

    Fixed a bug where Glitterbomb, Surprise Gift and Razzle Dazzle perks were not properly unlocking.
    BUG: Razzle Dazzle - Splendid still doesn't unlock the Transformation account wide

    I made a new character to get the Perk, did some log in-out and still not account unlock :dizzy:

    Glitterbomb and Surprise Gift unlock perfectly now :+1:​​

    Tooltip fix for Cleave to state the last hit does split fire and crushing damage.
    Still the slowerst and worst Combo power

    Please update the Description tooltip for the Defensive stance ADV of Cleave, it has an undocumented secondary effect of applying AEGIS buff on yourself if you are not using Defiance

    A lot of people don't even know about that and it's been ingame since Might revamp, complety ditching Cleave

    It would be really nice if you could give Mighty Kick - MADNESS?! Adv the Aegis secondary effect for non-Defiance users as well​​

    I've been away from CO for a while so this might be a dumb question but how are event mission costume rewards treated? For example Dr. Destroyer Bracers that are part of this event (as a mission reward), will they be part of the event store next year or will they go into GCR/Q/Drifter/Collectors/Paperback/ etc. ?

    It's still a relatively new thing as of this year, so we're not entirely sure yet. So far for the events that ran multiple times this year, the answer seems to be "you just can't get them." My guess/hope is they'll eventually be added to the event stores, though!

    Anyone figured out how to get the Key to the City perk yet? (Besides having retained the Key to the City item from ages ago).

    Also
    BUG: QI alert: BT's hold doesn't create hold resist stacks and ignores hold resist stacks you have.

    So there is no real "official" statement on how this will be handled? I really don't want to bring my hopes up to then be crushed. I would reason that it would be a waste of dev time to create something for a limited time and then not have it available through some means (usually grind or zen). Nevertheless, it's not like I really know for sure. I wish they gave an answer.

    Isn't the Paperback Vendor current dumpsite of moved stuff?
    I think they'll remove the prior year stuff and keep the current Anniversary stuff for the next year.

    The devs don't like giving players the ability to plan for the future. The idea is to deny information to keep players logging in to check what's going on. Of course the down side to that strategy is that players may just decide it is not worth the time to check in.

    So what you are saying is that there won't be any official response to this and we just sit here in limbo waiting for something that might or might not happen.
