  • TK fan thanks
  • I don't know if that would work. If all 3 sets were via rampage, then what happens to cosmic runs? Also, not sure the population number of this game will even support that idea as viable, especially considering how much of a nose dive PQ's take during events. The entire October-January 1 stretch is almost a write off for…
  • lol :) it's getting fixed today though so I guess we'll see how it goes
  • So to clear things up, the UI scale you normally use due to your disability gets broken into the screenshots you posted, after this patch? If that's the case then that sucks and they didn't keep MAX UI in mind, or didn't think it's be an issue for anyone. Personally I'm not a fan either of the extra pixels, it's…
  • OK I took it through. Just for testing purposes I did the following:* This was done on PTS * Only used a simple rotation of 3x Ego (or ID) Weaponry -> 1x Annihilate -> repeat * Didn't start the parser until I was at 8 full stacks of focus * Did 3 runs of Ego Weaponry and 3 runs of ID Weaponry. Each run was 1 minute long *…
  • Thanks for this, I also put a bug comment in the Jan 26 release notes. Were you able to tell whether or not the damage boost on ID Weaponry from Warden Mastery was affected?
  • Bug: Warden Mastery is no longer working for TK melee's ID Weaponry combo attacks Not sure if this is from this patch or the first weapon auras patch
  • I dunno... I kinda get the 100' build people wanting a little more because they do get a bit if a raw deal at OMs. 1. because very few supports hang out back there and also 2. they inherently do less dmg than melee. The counter argument most MMO devs make is that melee = more risk but thor meme/is it, really? /thor meme.…
  • I'm aware of all that, but it still doesn't change the decided massive dps adv melee has over range with negligible risk involved in endgame content. I know this to be true playing my meta melee and my meta ranged, and appearing for you to see when you're standing there waiting for a cosmic timer to restart and seeing my…
  • premium pack here, also limited to 2. That wasn't the issue though, I know others have seen this error as well
  • I'm glad you reminded me! I definitely do NOT want a naruto run lol
  • Seems to be some confusion about what this actually means for controllers. I don't see any controller button combos anywhere that actually activate the PVD's and had to manually assign them myself
  • Wait, so the new higher cost is deliberate? I don't understand why you felt this was necessary, there's never been a damage/cost problem with epidemic. It's a good PBAoE but not a broken one.
  • shadow pls :D
  • I thought there was a shield costume piece from this event? (one that you could put emblems on) Is that a week 2 thing maybe?
  • Has it been mentioned anywhere yet that the mods vendor is MIA from the powerhouse? edit: Oh yes, it has. In that case... BUMP
  • They really should. The most famous MMO in existence didn't have them on 'endgame' content and suffered no less for it. You could still parse the scores in chat yeah, but people only cared about that more for a minimum gear check
  • It's the B button on an Xbox Controller (controller keybinds in this game use the Xbox format even if you're not using one) but the keybind for it is BB. More info on all controller keybinds can be found here…
  • Have you tried binding your power replacer exactly as I posted above on PTS? If that's not working, then the only thing I can think of is it's the logitec driver(s). Dunno if it could be a Steam thing, I use Arc
  • If I were to throw a random number at it, I'd say somewhere around 15-20% of the players at any given cosmic. There is after all, a chat channel in the game with a good sized chunk of them highly dedicated to meta. Not knocking it, just pointing it out for the sake of discussion. That's not taking into account the players…
  • I'm still not sure I understand. I use a gamepad and the Qualaar toxic rifle bound to the gamepad's BB button. I just finished testing the new binds and they worked fine on my gamepad: /bind BB "+inventoryexec DevicesWeapons 4" (I didn't use the other option that makes the maintain continuously fire because I prefer…
  • no nerfs? rhymes with "hurrderkerfan" is gonna whine in zone chat all week again that everyone else who wasn't banned for trolling and had to start all over wasn't brought down
  • I hate this. A LOT. All kinds of things don't display properly and the navigation element of the entire site is a dumpster fire. I wish they could at least provide an opt-out
  • Silver players don't buy zen? I know I do, regularly.
  • This is pretty much a giant kick in the arse for silver/premium players with a refinement limit of 8k ore/day. At least with the current vigilance you could look forward to a refined Q reward at the end. Anyone running any kind of content that rewards ore instead of refined Q (which is basically a lot of the endgame stuff)…
  • I would suggest going int pss for endgame stuff, I have the rifle as well, just haven't gotten around to a retcon for it yet. This is basically a work in progress template I'm planning on using when I do. Wisp for the toxic damage debuff, And I threw frag grenade in their just for kicks as an extra DoT since it'll be…
  • Not all of them. Some can be quite challenging to find on the AH and because of that tend to climb in listing price even when they do eventually appear. The special mods you can buy with scr/gcr from recog vendor come to mind, and if you're doing endgame content, it's just easier to craft them up yourself. If I relied on…
  • Personally I just do the PQ runs. I also don't stay in this game all-day every-day like a lot of the people I do those or cosmics with. I have canvassed several others who don't play that heavily and they were nice enough to give me honest feedback about their time spent to gear one full set: MONTHS. Not distinguished…
  • Not saying you have to, just saying it works, and I can add quite well. People claim on the CO discord that HW is "one of the lowest dps melee" but even if that were true, I more often than not can hit the top 5 on cosmics with mine. I can, if I wanted to, hit 6.7k dps on ACT in the powerhouse (post-patch) which is a…
  • If you cycle 3 AoE's instead of spamming one, they almost come off CD seamlessly. I'm currently doing Eruption>Arc>Brimstone>quick filler attack
  • I know you were just being sarcastic (which I totally get!) but we can't even do that lol. Eruption w/ magma and Arc with advantages are still going to end up better dps lead-ins to Annih, plus the fact those other options won't work with the ironclad mod. **retraction as we discussed in-game: According to tooltips, an Arc…
  • What I find confusing is that nowhere can I find any description of exactly what powers had their damage changed and whether it was raised or lowered. I mean, what the heck do vague descriptions like "adjusted damage for cost" tell anyone? That's the million $ question. I'm currently wondering what you could pull off going…
  • I admire someone who can admit their wrongdoing, well done.
  • For melee, Might still outperforms HW on single target dps against endgame bosses (assuming using "meta" optimized builds for both). Considering that HW dps is behind most martial arts as well as TK blades (and possibly Bestial as well), that means that no, HW is not one of the better performing sets. Further, considering…
  • Bear with me because I'm confused: Are these changes in addition to the other HW adjustment post, or a replacement to those changes? As for refreshes I'm also confused on that score. Would not the usual rotation of Eruption w/magma + Arc apply clinging flames and no quarter still? And will you no longer be able to refresh…
  • retracted. The changes have won me over after lengthy testing
  • Edited to take back what I said before I realized there was a dps nerf involved. Seems to me the bulk of these changes so far are a sweeping nerf to overall dps for the sake of 5'. Besides this being an obvious nerf, it was also unnecessary, nobody was clamoring for what you did here to happen. And just to make things…
  • so wireframes from baby don't hit anyone during dps checks? I did not know that, thanks
  • Go with EGO PSS with DEX SS gearing for DEX. Lose burst, choke, telekinesis, and emphatic. If you plan on grinding for the Justice set, you could look at reversing the points I put into Follow Through and 6th Sense. If not, I find this spread pays off better vs Cosmics. Antagonize is my shield because Ape lava annoys the F…
  • When I get some spare time I'm going to parse both of them. I'm really curious to see if both of them just wash each other because with the Avenger you're rotating between 1 blast taps and 1 Defile, whereas with guardicator you're spamming 4 Defiles > 1 blast tap. One has a crit bonus, the other has a base damage bonus. I…
  • Thanks guys, Flow, I did end up taking Toxic nanites instead of Ego Surge and dropped the self rez. I'm finding that with my primary end-game content being cosmics, I can just recover and run back (like basically everyone else does anyway lol) if there's no rez from others. Not sure how that would play out in lairs though.…
  • I didn't parse it but just blasting away at test dummies I didn't see much difference which is probably because they don't have the resists of cosmics. This is a little too specialized for my personal taste though so I think I'll keep pestilence and EGO mastery, and swap that rez for a self rez. Other than that, I don't…
  • Interesting build from a long time player in-game yesterday I'll run by you all. Appears set up for max damage output. The thing that stood out the most to me was his choice of Vindicator mastery instead of Ego mastery so not sure how that will pan out. I'll probably swap Ego Surge out for Conviction because it's very…
  • Keep in mind, KODE is geared up the wazoo so ymmv from his survivability, and in every cosmic/lair etc he's always got a healer on him too. Plus he's been practicing quite a long while
  • not the stuff in my 2nd post, but the over all build itself worked excellent (I edited the first post description earlier). As for the others, I just got around to looking at the in game descriptions and annoyingly enough, they're ALL 50' powers. So basically if you want Armor Piercing (and you definitely do) without…
  • More notes: I was asking about other quicker options to apply/refresh armor piercing debuff than Straight Shot on full charge and was told to look into the following for faster taps: frag grenade, bullet hail, submachine gun. I haven't looked myself but just thought I'd post for you to look
  • PTS is down so I haven't had a chance to see how energy is with this build for you but here's another way I might do it. Kinda the same idea as a sorcery INT/DEX/CON dps build, but I'll need to see how energy is without Conjuring + Will O Wisp with Guide adv EDIT: Just got off PST testing this wearing a set of heroic…
