  • Blades do suck until Level 40. I totally agree. Getting their MAIN ATTACK at level 40 is almost inexcusable. The healing consumables help a lot, and once you're at an appropriate level and have the money, picking up a Necrulitic Elixir and a Nimbus can further your survivability. The road from 6-40 is hell for a Blade.
  • The unfortunate thing is that ideas and being able to actually do it are two entirely separate things. Scripting that story arc takes time and money that they could be using to make things for the playerbase to purchase or fixing bugs. While it'd be great to have a 'design the next big thing!' contest, it likely isn't…
  • Is there something I'm missing here? You can stomp a great deal of the game with Epidemic, Hurricane, Sparkstorm and Lead Tempest now. Eye of the Storm counts as a PBAoE and is pretty much the PvE easywin if you like Dual Blades... but the chain powers do suck, and I have a feeling that's what you're basing your opinion…
  • The fact is, while Champions Online is very open about character creation and builds, there is a game behind all of that customization. Themes and all are OK, but they have to give way to the game that you're playing. Oh, so you're supposed to be an invincible Superman-ish hero who can't be beaten no matter what? You can…
  • All of these are awesome, but Luciano stands out because of that detail! Just look at those hands... I never would have thought to do that. @[email protected]
  • If I were to remake CO... - Priority 1: A much, much better soundtrack. Right now CO's OST, save for Snake Gulch, is all very generic and 'backgroundy'. The lack of truly memorable music (save for Snake Gulch) really hurts the game, and yes, there's an in-game mp3 player, but that doesn't excuse any game from having a good…
  • Your snark is thoroughly undeserved, especially since I was in support of the dodge nerf and I'm still glad it happened. I still think SS Con is a bit of a silly SS. Everything else except End have diminishing returns, Con offers knock and hold resist in spec trees, heals-on-crits, that meager amount of dodge (which, in…
  • Things I hate because they're too effective: Epidemic: Because nothing says easymode like holding a button to let out a high-damage AoE maintain and, if you build for it, one that you can maintain forever. And you can move while using it. Really, really fast. Why don't I hate Hurricane and Lead Tempest? Hurricane knocks…
  • How a 'limited Freeform' system could work while still keeping the general idea of Archetypes around: Make a new tab for passives, energy unlocks and forms. Passives and forms are a big part of the character. Rather than leave them in the various powersets, place them in their own category. (while possibly also leaving…
  • Survival Rush: A map where you and your friends defeat wave after wave of various enemy factions. THE ARENA: See above, but you battle supervillains instead of mooks. If you wipe you lose. If you go solo you'll fight one villain at a time, but if you have a full team you'll fight five supervillains from the same faction…
  • I'll be fiddling around with my dodge-offense characters some more later (and trying to improve those who incidentally used dodge, like my stormbringer character) but so far I'm not liking the numbers with R5-gemmed Heroic Gear. My Quarry characters get a 30% base dodge chance... I might be moving them to another passive…
  • The only good thing in this patch is the 10 man Rampage and the LTS veteran rewards. The dodge nerfs on the dodge passives... that's a little far... >_>
  • A Nice Shirt - Active Defense You put on a nice shirt and instantly become painfully aware of any incoming objects that might stain it. You will negate anything that causes DoTs (such as bleeds, Ebon Ruin, Pestilence attacks, etc. etc.) and gain a moderate dodge/avoid boost. An Interview In The Morning - 3 pt advantage You…
  • Thundering Kicks is really good, but if you want a good AoE you're going to need to grab 100 Hands. My own pure Martial Arts character can tear through mobs using 100 Hands. Thundering Kicks also boosts Dodge when you finish its combo. Form of the Master is not good unless you have lots of dodge. I recommend Form of the…
  • Ooo, Earth Form... I would say this would be a great time to make the Mountain a Hybrid-role AT and allow a passive choice between Defiance and Earth Form, but I dunno, would hate to alienate people who already use the AT as is.
  • I want power replacers back too, but they should either be: A: In a vanity slot that allows you to slot either - Weapon Auras: Slot a PR aura to set your weapons on fire, coat them in ice, cloak them in shadow, electrify them... they could even work on Unarmed! - Bullet Replacers: All bullets your Munitions-type weapons…
  • Both are very good ATs, but the Scourge is just one of the best... The Void: - Is a Hybrid. - Has a pretty neat heal in the form of Summon Shadows. - Can do pretty good damage all around, decent control. - Needs to apply Fear and such to get energy. Not all that bad in practice. The Scourge: - Is Ranged DPS. - Has oodles…
  • I did some checking (on just the numbers, didn't actually take my characters into fights or anything) but here's generally what I got from the perspective of the average user. Quarry R3 w/ Heroic Dodge/Avoid Gear (R5s) 31% dodge chance w/ Evasive Maneuvers R2 w/Advantage: 49% (R2 now gives 18% as opposed to 20%) Lightning…
  • I generally take a Blade into AT PvP and I gotta say, I disagree with Chained Kunai. Having a 100ft spammable attack is really handy, especially against other melees (hi Unleashed, screw you, have a few shuriken to the face), and proves to be invaluable in AT BASH in order to get the first strike. Keep in mind that…
  • Really, my only issue with builds is that they need to be killable. The absurd active defense-uber cooldown reduction-massive healing needs to stop, because nothing is more discouraging than having a 1/100 chance to kill someone with Strafing Run, a power you may or may not have or even like, because they've got Masterful…
  • Wait, Bluhman's a community moderator? Since when? I thought he was just some weirdo who makes costumes with an LTS. ?_? ... also, those hold/root = dodge debuff suggestions from earlier sound great too, do those. I would also like to note that, if you're primarily ranged, stacking EM and Thundering Kicks is a pain in the…
  • How it ought to go: Dodge/Avoid gear should hit its soft cap around the Heroic Gear mark. (40-50%) Over-investing with Legion Gear should provide far less returns at that stage, encouraging Legion Gear havers to invest in something else (IE an avoidance core, + HP, defense, etc. etc.) Dodge-built-in passives should have…
  • Sweet jesus, Derp Chameleon is amazing... Insert angry comment about that helmet being overpriced/available only in lockboxes here.
  • You're gonna want to make a Soldier. Military fairies with highly illegal firepower in both the fae world and the real world is extremely awesome. Now onto actual seriousness: The Void is awesome. Decently survivable, great damage and it's the only AT that has access to Ebon Ruin. I've seen you in AT PvP a bit, and the…
  • Fools and degenerates? I'm going to go wish for the ability to punch someone over TCP/IP now. No other CO community should ever write off another community as a waste of time. Ever. Really, though. PvP needs help, and with the device balance coming up it may finally have a chance to get back up on its feet. The return of…
  • Legacy Devices: The Video.
  • I'll be waiting for the Z-Store or Salvage version of the VTOL. I like the design, it's just that Heavy Cannon sucks, even if it's Mk 2... and it's probably rare as hell...
  • Ugh... I'd have so bought this costume set if it were a direct-to-C-store costume set. Shark characters are awesome. Alas... it was not meant to be. Again, more keys I'm not going to be buying. What a shame.
  • Bug: By using build settings on Freeforms, you can still slot multiples of a device How to do this: Set a build where every device in your device slot is the same legacy device (ie, 5x Eruptions) Switch builds Switch to that build again Viola! You now have 5x Eruptions in your inventory again!
  • Here's mine! He's supposed to be sort of mutant thingie with a bit of Nightcrawler influence. I'm not the best with male characters, soooo... I MIGHT HAVE borrowed one of Bluhman's templates... ._.
  • I... I can only say one thing... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ALwKeSEYs Finally... just... finally...
  • My theory is that, according to the developers, vehicles being faster than R3 flight TPs is likely an acceptable break from "reality', considering said vehicles would never sell if they were always slower than, god forbid, R3 Flight. That being said? A super-booster for Flight TPs would be very much welcome. Hell, the…
  • The Foundry should be a priority to get in, IMHO, and if tagging objects for Foundry use is a huge chunk of work, crowdsource it! It's just awful that the MMO with the best character creator can't have a mission creator. It just makes me all the more jealous of Neverwinter... makes me hate it even more, too. New zones…
  • All this talk about legacy devices are not exactly inspiring confidence, so I'd like to propose a guideline. Don't use your legacy devices, but if you see someone using them, by all means go all-out with your legacy devices on that person! If they're just being a normal AT without using legacy devices, refrain from using…
  • It's no fault of the judges, because purposefully rigging a CC is lame and pointless. All it does is result in butthurt and threads like these. I'm going to tell you what I do with CCs. Step 1. Arrive ten minutes early and check out the crowd. If your preferred category has: A. A joke entry (i.e. a ninja category, the joke…
  • T4, level 40, though lower tiers might be up for consideration.
  • Man, if I had the hardware I'd love to do AT PvP videos, but unfortunately I just can't. 3 gigs of RAM and an onboard GPU... it just ain't happenin'. Any volunteers? ._. Hell, I could take demos and upload them somewhere for a proper video editing guy to play with.
  • Declaring war on Foxi because of her terrible opinion. MY ENTIRE SG (which is just me) is going to FARM YOU WITH DEVICES (Plasmite) so PREPARE YOUR DIDDLY HOLE no really though, what makes you say it's boring? :3 Unrelated, we've had huge AT variety. I've seen: Soldier Impulse Invincible Scourge/Cursed Blade Unleashed…
  • Keep in mind, using Lightning Arc with PA toggles requires use of an exploit. It's best not to rely on it because it might wind up getting fixed. Plus, Lightning Arc and Tactical Missiles are apples and oranges. One is a maintain, one is a blast attack that can be tapped and charged and far more easily used with Power…
  • The thing is, the SG with the @ handles that are always winning? That's what they do. They are a costume-based SG that's all about making the best costumes. This is their endgame. Of course I think it's atrocious when 90% of the winners are from that SG, but there's nothing that can be done about it. Suck it up and try…
  • Personally, I think it's totally OK for him to have 3 million HP. Makes us have to actually play with the mechanics rather than facerolling him. I do think he'd be better off with 1.5 mill instead, but I'm perfectly fine with 3 mill.
  • Yeah, just get ANYONE to stand near Cybermind and he'll use melee only. It should ideally be a tank because his sword does kind of hurt. If you plop an AT or a no heal ranged squishy by him, prepare to die. Also, from Trailturle in another thread... I still say if your DPS is high enough to only focus one wall and wait,…
  • I liked the part where he called all PvPers losers. ._. Seriously though. I think Cryptic is finally picking up some steam with CO. It might just be my hope senses giving me a false positive, but given that this is my favorite MMO ever... I want it to succeed. Did I ever mention that it's hard to market CO? Ever since they…
  • Just wanted this thread to see some life since Cybermind is, y'know, still around and stuff. Also, there now seem to be four drones, two of one color and two of another color. Your color buff also helpfully goes away after they're gone, too!
  • I'm going to say this. I enjoy this Alert. It's fun, it has actual mechanics, it isn't just a tank and spank and he has identifiable phases. However... the fact that level 6s can get in here... is just inexcusable. The leave instance button breaks after the Cybermind fight is initiated. It's not a good idea to have it…
  • Wow, the Dagger is the perfect color for my main... shame it's got one of the weakest weapons, though. :S New Iris costume, btw?
  • It feels like FM got harder. There's more enemies to worry about now, I think. Or is it just my luck with random groups? Every PUG I've been in has had at least 2 pre-level-10s in the group for... some reason... All the more reason premades are super important.
  • Glorious. I screamed and my laptop is full of tears.
  • Now post your own creepypasta things-that-totally-never-happened. Now. Do it. And put lots of blood and death in them too! 2spooky4me
