  • Is this something you're doing with regular screen shots or do you have a program that lets you play the game like this?
  • Shadow Skull Flight and Spirit Wolf Run have the same issue, but I would not call them "Useless". At least they still act like Travel Powers, to get you to areas faster. The only useless "Travel Power" is Ninja Vanish. It shouldn't even be considered a TP, as all it does is turn you invisible and only slightly increases…
  • Now for getting really creative, here's some animal heads I've made using non animal head pieces. First we have Clockwork & Pugsley, a character I made that's meant to be a magic owl riding on top of a combat droid Next, we have Rock Lobster, an Earth/Martial Arts Claws hybrid character I used the same premise for this…
  • As for animal heads that I've used, first up is the Fish Monster head that I used to make a big-headed green alien Next is the Toy Cat head mixed with the Insectoid head I used for my monster baby character I used the same premise to be the head and neck of this monster from the Team Dev CC during Halloween I used the Worm…
  • Nope. All the Hideout locations have inaccessible extra areas. Some of them can be seen by using the new Mag auras which can allow your camera to clip through the walls. Some, like the Basement, you can glitch out of the map by logging out in the hideout and immediately logging back in. And you can just walk outside the…
  • "Help! I'm so rich I can't stash it all in one place anymore!" And here I thought I was doing good when I finally hit 10k Gs
  • It's the "Eclipsed" emblem. I believe it came from the Nightmare Invasion in the event store.
  • Based on what you said here, and using your original as a template, I threw together this concept look. Mixing biological alien designs with some tech.
  • Champs HQ, UNITY, and the Destroyer Museum have lots of Renegade Toy Boxes. On the ramp leading up to Recn Cen (in between Ren Cen and CHQ) Three boxes along the sidewalk north of that (next to the trees) Two at the southern part of the CHQ building (One by the giant C and one down the ramp on the side walk) Three at the…
  • Guess it depends on what exactly you're going for. As of the screenshot, it could be interpreted as an alien, a robot, or a human in a suit of armor. You could mess with the sliders to alter the body shape into something less human looking, to give a more alien feel. Also, play with the pieces you have unlocked, and see…
  • According to the website, they want to base their character customization off of a mix of Star Citizen and City of Heroes, specifically noting CoH and showing off it's old creator. Stating that CoH "was touted as the revolution in Character Creation, many critics claims this is the only reason the game lasted as long as it…
  • This will be Marvel's third attempt. CO was originally supposed to be a Marvel MMO, but Marvel backed out, believing the market was too saturated and the game wouldn't do well. They tried again with their now dead "Marvel Heroes" game. Now they're using the DCUO devs to make a new one? Either third time's a charm for them,…
  • Sadly that's not likely to happen. Tumerboy was the one doing all the work on Hideouts, and he no longer works on CO. He acts as a judge during Dev CC's, but he's no longer a CO Dev. He got moved over to either STO or NWO (can't remember which). No one has taken up his role since, which is why nothing new has come around…
  • Back when it first came out, I regularly ran it on Elite with a character I had that was all fire, but used Regen as the passive. Of course things have changed a lot since then, so not sure how viable it would be now. I would definitely trust Flow's build, however. Can't go wrong there.
  • I still wish we could change the weapons on out Nemeses.
  • I get what your saying, and making the world feel more alive is always a good idea to me, but Kaarniki the Great is a superpowered magician. He's not pulling them out of his a**, he's using his magic to summon them, so a little cart would be pointless. I mean, he COULD be pulling them out of his a**, but he's using magic…
  • Still uses his real name because his personality wouldn't allow him to stoop to silly code names and ridiculous outfits. Just his lab coat, slacks, button down shirt, tie, and dress shoes. Also, Zerstoiten knew he couldn't just straight up kill Reinhardt, he would see that coming. So he left it to the regime to do it, but…
  • Sure. One of my favorite characters to play in City of Villains was my robotics mastermind named Dr. Victor Reinhardt. His original story was that he was a scientist obsessed with perfecting himself by any means necessary. He joined the (WW2 German forces we're not allowed to mention anymore), not because he believed in…
  • I'm glad to see this is inspiring more creative builds.
  • Thank you both. Flow's build is closer to what I had originally started doing, but I'm going to try the "Flaming Fist" out sometime as well, on a different character.
  • Well the way I see it, we currently have a Melee weapon aura that effects only Melee weapons that are in the right hand. It's a combat only aura as well. This would work in the same style. Only working if you have a gun weapon. One specifically for Rifle based weapons, and one for pistol based. I know we couldn't get a…
  • One thing I've noticed with controllable pet behavior is combat while flying seems to break their AI more than combat on the ground. I noticed this when doing the Trick or Treat mission on various characters during Bloodmoon. Spawning a Sidekick, or using a Controllable Pet power, while flying caused the pets to stop…

  • Probably not what you're looking for, but I'm tossing up anyways, since it's a "Soul Drainer" as well. I made this build very much as a theme build, so it's not min/maxed in any way. It's based off an old, terrible movie that had an interesting premise. The character I made it for is called Soul Taker, and it's focused…
  • Circus Malvanum, High Noon at Snake Gulch, Nightmare Invasion, and Nighthawk are filler events that usually happen multiple times a year, with no set months. Though I recently heard Circus Malvanum is supposed to be popping up in February. Foxbatcon, Patriotic Event, Anniversary, Defender's Training, Blood Moon, and Winter…
  • Just an update. I was hesitant to go with the Medical Nanites SP build, because I used them a long time ago and didn't like them. However, I gave it a shot, since it is theme appropriate, and it's working out better than expected.
  • I'd like to see some kind of Butcher's Cleaver as a weapon skin
  • That CC was fun. The Brigades were cool, but I think you guys didn't get chosen because they set the player limit as 2-5 people, and you had 6. I'm glad Pandora and I at least got an HM, and we got to be the Cosmic boss we were trying to be.
  • My newest character, just in time for Spooky Season, is Sabbath! Adrian Vahn was a devout pastor. However, run-ins with hellish beings such as DEMON, the Qliphothic, and New Shadows pushed him past Zealotry, and into absolute insanity. He came to the conclusion that following the good book was not enough to do the Lord's…
  • This. And because they are working with what they call "Spaghetti Code" with very few devs, the only way they could make powers Black and White would be to take the existing power and make a duplicate that is only black, and another duplicate that is only white. So you'd be stuck with a massive list containing 3 different…
  • I know there have been a lot of changes to how TPs work since beta, I still miss making Jet Boots explode from charging them too long. But I've never seen Acrobatics have an auto-jump feature.
  • I did not know that. Thanks for the info! After going back and looking at it, I somehow completely missed the "Scales with Presence" part of the description. Boy do I feel dumb
  • I'm totally fine with replacing Incendiary grenade with another CD power. I built it in HeroCreator, and only a handful of powers actually say they had a CD on there, so I was just working off that. It is meant to be a hybrid for soloing, and support for grouping. I went with AoPM because I thought it would boost the…
  • Alien Eye Glasses/Goggles eye accessory
  • I kinda thought the same thing. They look like a rushed version of the actual Jaw Tubes in the helmet.
  • A good example of these issues can be seen during the current event. When fighting the Mega Destroids, it's massive AoE has a knockback attached to it. Blocking will prevent you being knocked back. However, it's tactical missiles also have knockback. Blocking these will still knock you back. Another example is those boss…
  • Well now I'm sad the CO version of that helm doesn't have the teeth in it. Instead it kinda looks like a WW2 gas mask helmet. I guess that's appropriate given DD's history, but I still wish it had the teeth. Thanks for the info!
  • This is my mash-up Grey/Little Green Man alien. Used the Fish Monster head from the Bloodmoon event, and the Bobble Head aura from the Foxbat Con event. The bobble head aura might become available during the last week of the current anniversary event, it was made available last year.
  • I had an issue after one of the updates, where my launcher exe file got deleted. I also use steam, so I uninstalled and reinstalled the game to get it to work. I was worried I might lose some things, but everything was fine once the game launched. You could try that and see if it works for you.
  • Another character of mine, that I recently updated with a new suit, is The Bug. Meant to be like Spider-Man if he was more like Batman. Here's his base looks, and MK 1 Armor And here's his new look, the MK 2 Armor (With Armored wings as robotic bug arms) And a few action shots of the MK 2 Armor to show off the "Bug Arms"
  • My newest character, Teslon, the electrified alien robot
  • The "Scarab Flight" TP lets you attack while it's on. So you can fight as a swarm of insects. I use this with my Swarm character, who's more DPS focused than benoitsean's version. Because of that, I use a lot of toxic melee attacks (combined with Locust swarm and venomous breath) and I have Pestilence as my SP.…
  • Made a post in in the PC bugs section, but after the update, the game crashed. Was forced to do a file verification after trying to launch again, and it deleted my .exe file
  • As far as I'm aware, all Perk based costume unlocks are still there.
  • In the same vein as the Wolf Pelt head piece, can we get some other animals, like Bears, Bats, Lions, etc?
  • But aren't most of the mmo's out there just like this? Drops are RNG based, and you either put together your own team, or have to queue up and wait for a party with rando's. I recently started playing Final Fantasy XIV, which is WAY more populated than CO. Even with it's massive population, the dungeon and raid queues are…
  • Don't get me wrong, I like that there are melee attacks in the pistol set. It works nicely with other melee attacks when you don't want pistols to be your main weapon. But lunging with a ranged weapon seems counter productive. That's what the dumb, nameless henchmen do in action movies. They charge into melee range with…
  • Absolutely! That boss is far more suited for an "Unknowable One" than a big ghost shark. I think it makes it even worse that we just got done fighting this exact enemy as a cosmic level boss during the April Fools Day flood. And sure, there are people afraid of sharks, but most of that "psychological presence" of fear has…
  • Anyone else disappointed "The Unknowable One" was just the Megalodon boss?
  • I haven't had it happen with my entire keyboard, but there have been a few times where one or two random keys no longer work in-game, but work everywhere else. One day I logged in and it wouldn't register my W key, so I couldn't walk forward. Another day it wasn't registering my Z key (what I have set as my Interact key).…
