  • Just wanted to update everyone that I finally did get Stoic Flight. A few weeks of Caprice ... wasn't welcome so I opened more boxes and got one. But hey I solved my problem so you can shut these boards down until I need another thing. That is …
  • LOL - no need for charity but thank you anyway. Please do not misunderstand. I do not feel like I should be entitled to an item or power. My issue is that the math doesn't work. I am sure there are several on this board who are irritated when th…
  • over 300 boxes tried. It's gone, period. Nothing else has been anywhere near this rare. Edit: OK Poindexter-to-be, no other lockbox item since I have been playing the game (2009) has been so. Not counting deliberate Therakiel BS.
  • I dunno - I got a better drop rate on the STO R&D ships than this power. Ain't never been a power IIRC I wouldn't get out of a box in 20 - 30 boxes or so. This one is different. Dunno why.
  • 160 shao lin boxes = nada. I call bs that it still exists. Still in the box description.

  • I am waiting for you to say, "well I can do it so..." (RE: definition of "casual?" You ain't it.) If some powers are the ones always being used, there is a good reason. There are powers in every set that rise up and powers that are hardly ever …

  • ok now I want to do cosmics with a lvl 20 archery/earth build.

  • The problem with endgame content in CO has little to do with difficulty. It is the sheer amount of standing around and jockeying to get players into zones and roles. This I find ludicrous. Casual players can do it easily...*IF* they are pigonhole…

  • I thought it was a dress code thing and I play naked. So, #6? I choose 1,2, and 3 because "it depends." Don't have a lot of time most of the time but there are a few weeks a year I have nothing but time so I play in streaks -- almost never sche…
  • Very much that - thanks!
  • Ascension also works really well as a GTFO. It doesn't ramp up like other travel powers. Saves your stars when cosmics are going wrong and you've used your rez already.
  • No guarantees on whether or not I get this quoting stuff correct. I never said to do that. Step 74 is "laugh at anyone who freaks out about it". Step 75 is "if you die and get everyone killed, learn from your mistakes and do it better next ti…
  • Normally I don't disagree with you much but this is self-destructive. Laugh @ teh noobs? Losing even a few players isn't a bright idea with a low-population 10 year-old game. I'll opt for perhaps not alienating some of the players on the chance…
  • Haven't done this mission in a while but IIRC the best place I found to fight them is right in the doorway in melee range, even with a squishy ranged dps. I don't recall defeating the doc or not but I think I did since everything was crowded in one…
  • Yeah I was looking for something to put in the place of epidemic - maybe fractal aegis or a second AO.
  • I dunno what you mean by "toggle." END IIRC was set to widen the 15% of max energy needed to proc supernatural power (that 15% being roughly equal to the cost of one tick of DE). I don't recall that he ever runs out of energy spamming DE this way.…
  • Oh and Life Essense works really well too. I chose DE because it is melee dmg and buffed by STR and Aggressor.
  • Yep. And since people aren't doing them much now, well, thread. Before the changes, ...
  • First of all, I said "pretty much," meaning "majority." Secondly, how many people are enthusiastically pursuing Eido for costumes? It certainly can't be many given the amount of activity. The GCR and SCR can more easily be obtained elsewhere. …
  • I suppose if I had less than 20 endgame toons, sure I can see that being an issue for someone with 1-3 toons they play all the time. Besides, with dailies I always end up with hundreds of extra GCR. Its SCR that limits what I can buy.
  • What about skill? Not to bash any player. Rotations work on timing and some are better than others and latency plays into that. I have had variations in my dps (not counting RNG shenanigans) up to ~1000 just by being either fat fingered or smooth…
  • As a person who could certainly do Eido and adapt to it, I decided just after playtest it was not something I was going to get into. 1) I can get pretty much the same rewards from easier content. DING DING this is the primary reason Eido is doome…
  • I haven't delved into the whole powerset changes thing for my TK toons so I can't comment yet. I am guessing I will just adjust and it will be OK but I don't have a melee EB toon either. I don't mind the Ego Surge nerf because it was ridiculously …
  • Yeah in the same tokenless boat after helping with the original eidolon pts. I assumed they just changed their minds about handing stuff out.
  • Hi - Not sure if this is the place to put this but the C-Store upgrade catalysts are listed in the ad at 50% off. They are currently only 20% off.
  • First of all, thanks for the awesome thread. Saves a bunch of time figuring this stuff out. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on the dual-role tank/dps. There is no form that scales with CON unless I have missed it all this time (which is v…
  • I think they both have EB toggled on usually, which given the above is more of a problem for haymaker than massacre. I can test for this effect though. The ranged dps in the LL/ES example would not though, nor would the WoW /PoP toon.
  • I have internet service among the best in the world (ping=single digit) and yet have tells appear during or after effects, especially during ape. I'm also guessing I've died to dino green spikes sometimes when I have seen the graphic hit my toon an…
  • I tested my CCer in combat for the first time last night and it went pretty well. Mine is very similar to yours except I took INT over EGO due to energy issues. Also, thunderclap over TK maelstrom and no mental storm. I took no attack powers othe…
