  • All my characters have gotten slight tweaks recently, mostly just body/face slider changes. Rinko however, has a new default costume: http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q306/OniGanon/Champions%20Mains/RinkoNew_zps41b7ffb0.png It's the same colour scheme as before. Lighting on the startup screen makes it look darker than it…
  • You could use Stormbringer as your passive, which boosts Crushing, Cold and Electric damage. That way, you can take both Wind and Electricity if you like. The most notable attacks in Wind are probably... Hurricane- a wide radius pbaoe with moderate DPS Typhoon- long ranged cylindrical aoe charged alpha strike In…
  • There's so many pieces you could use for a necromancer/dark mage type character: Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Qliphothic, Bone Armor, Wizard, Sovereign Sons, Halloween... My first thought would be to use the Bone Armor chest piece as a dress. Like so...
  • Another example, similar to the above. PowerHouse (Link to this build) Super Stats: Level 6: Intelligence (Primary) Level 10: Presence (Secondary) Level 15: Dexterity (Secondary) Powers: Level 1: Sonic Blaster Level 1: Ricochet Throw (Rank 2, Rank 3) Level 6: Sonic Device (Rank 2, Rank 3) Level 8: Molecular Self-Assembly…
  • Hm, well I had a go. Super Stats: Level 6: Presence (Primary) Level 10: Constitution (Secondary) Level 15: Dexterity (Secondary) Talents: Level 1: The Inferno Level 6: Lasting Impression Level 9: Quick Recovery Level 12: Survival Training Level 15: Impresario Level 18: Acrobat Level 21: Sniper Training Powers: Level 1:…
  • If you're Gold, you can recolour TK Blades to look like fire, or recolour certain Heavy Weapons models to look like Ice. Burning Chi Fist and Dragon Uppercut leave fiery effects on the enemy.
  • I don't understand why. The DPS of Haymaker isn't much better than Defensive Combo.
  • Note: Unstoppable's energy return scales on Rec.
  • If you're sick of using MSA, you could try Wind Reverb if you use Crushing Wave or Tyhpoon as your main attack. If you instead stick with Knock powers, you could use Unstoppable for some extra energy.
  • I don't understand the purpose of Conflagration in the build. It just seems randomly thrown in there, neither boosted by the passive nor triggering the chosen toggle form. If you're just looking for a fire power to include for theme, perhaps use Flashfire and Thermal Reverb instead of MSA. And maybe Pyre or Brimstone,…
  • Hm. I would've thought Def Combo with CC would be plenty. All that you'd need then is to boost the damage of it through things like warden spec/mastery and some debuffs like Demolish or Rising Knee. As I understand it, CS is the one with a cooldown, while CC adds threat to every attack so it works best on maintains like…
  • Choosing an offensive passive based on its defensive benefits seems pretty strange to me, especially after the dodge nerf. I always choose based on what damage types I need boosted, and any defensive benefit is a distant afterthought. If I was worried about defense, I'd choose a defensive passive. But while the defensive…
  • FWIW I use a tap of advantaged Ego Sleep to apply Fear at range, or advantaged Void Shift in melee. Quicker than using Shadow Blast, and it saves 2 advantage points. Would've personally went with PSS Ego SSS Con/Dex, using Talents and maybe one mod to stack End. Not entirely sure if Guardian/Warden + Vindicator is better…
  • I know I'm like a month late to this party, but... I was in the process of updating my Nightmare build when I came across this thread. Thought I'd share a modified version of my build that I think met your requirements/wishes. PowerHouse (Link to this build) Name: Nightmare Archetype: Freeform Super Stats: Level 6:…
  • Fantasy, Persian, Formal and Wizard sets have some pieces you might find useful.
  • In addition to the geo pieces, you can also use chitin, Quilothic and perhaps those new bone armour pieces to represent ice. example:
  • While it might be tempting to use a lot of Viking set pieces, stick some wings on her back and call it a day, you can achieve more by mixing things up a bit. The Epic Samurai set, Ancient Armor set, Qliphothic set and Fantasy set pieces can all work well with the Viking set. You could even add some steelwing or bird people…
  • So a living metal woman with a 90s Rogue kinda look? Hmm...
  • Like 4 hours maybe. Takes me a while. And if it's a toon I actually play, the costume gets tweaked over and over as time goes on. As they say, an artwork is never really finished, only abandoned.
  • For practical desert clothing, you want loose light coloured clothing of light material that covers as much of the body as possible, you want your head covered with a hat or hood, a scarf or something you can cover your mouth and neck with, boots and eye protection.
  • Heh, I used to play as Fulgore. Nice work. Really wish the upcoming sequel wouldn't be an XBone exclusive... As for the Pokemon inspired trio, it honestly would've taken me a lot longer to recognise it's Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise if you hadn't put them together in a trio like that. Contest? I don't see a problem.…
  • Blate Ant I c wat u did thar. King Etridan and Lithoveritatum (true stone?) look awesome. Normally I think the Ancient Armor chestpiece looks clumsy but here it just looks badass.
  • Those look like Serpent Lantern helmet and jaw pieces. I uh... I actually don't know how you'd go about getting those, now. Used to be you just bought them with Until Tokens that dropped in all Adventure Packs.
  • The fault really comes when only black and red are used, with no tonal variation, no contrast and no attention paid to making a cohesive looking costume. It's just the darkest black they can find (which looks unnatural and eliminates all details), combined with the most obnoxiously bright saturated red they can find, with…
  • I've long been a fan of yours, man. Whenever I see a totally crazy looking toon at a costume contest based on some ridiculous pun, I just know that I'll find your name in the @ tag. You've easily got some of the most creative (read: insane) costumes I have ever seen. Fassad the Friendly had me laughing for a good minute or…
  • Closest I could get was Roinesh helmet with some horns.
  • What's the loincloth Baeliph is using? Looks like the spiky knight hip gear, but... without the spiky hip gear.
  • If you decide you don't want those Roinesh flesh tentacles, there is actually a Hook Hand available somewhere if you look individually at the hand options...
  • I think you're confusing Forms with Secondary Energy Unlocks. The former only scale on the stats stated. The latter scale on the given stats, and much less so on Recovery (roughly one fifth of the gains from the dominant stat). You can find more details in Mecha-Teddy's sticked thread.
  • For a modern mystic type character, you can subtly suggest their magical nature through the clothes they wear like hoods, high collars, cloaks, jackets, trenchcoats, skirts, capes, long gloves/boots and such. The colouring and patterns on these clothes can also help to suggest mysticism. In addition, accessories are a big…
  • If your intention here is to use Minigun together with Chainsaw, I should warn you that while it does work (as long as you can afford the ungodly energy cost), it causes the Chainsaw graphic to just hang by the side a bit instead of punching it into your enemy. It looks kinda lame.
  • A note on Massacre's advantage: It works off any Bleed. Doesn't have to be yours. The pets of Command Animals apply a Bleed...
  • You get the Bleeds from Bite or Shred. Preferably Shred. Alternatively you can just use the Enrage toggle from Might. Frenzy gives Enraged every 3rd hit, and Massacre knocks enemies down, so...
  • This is how I would do it: Super Stats: Level 6: Dexterity (Primary) Level 10: Constitution (Secondary) Level 15: Intelligence (Secondary) Talents: Level 1: The Savage Level 6: Paramilitary Training Level 9: Covert Ops Training Level 12: Relentless Level 15: Quick Recovery Level 18: Impresario Level 21: Negotiator Powers:…
  • Build looks decent... I'd replace Str with Con if you're not going to make Str the PSS. Change Brawler to Warden (Fortified, Ruthless, Best Defense, Elusive) But when you say 'survivability is a must' just how survivable do you want to make it? How much damage are you willing to sacrifice? Basically I'm asking if you might…
  • Perhaps I'm just vastly underestimating it, but trying to tank using a passive with no inherent damage resistance or dodge/avoid just seems like a bad idea to me.
  • Y'know you can't play as copyrighted characters, yeah? But a simple name change (don't call her Felicia, or anything remotely resembling that name), pallette swap and background story change will pretty much let you get away with it. Long messy hair, cat ears, choker, Curves torso tights (New Millennium) with fake skin…
  • Yes you can tank using AoRP in Hybrid. There's two major downsides to this though: -You will probably have relatively low HP for a tank. -You pretty much need the Protector spec for Bulwark threat generation. As for using IDF, I'd recommend against it. You really don't want to be without the bonus damage and energy…
  • Thanks! -I'm aware that NWI can work on either Conc or Enrage. However, using 2GM for the Conc buff doesn't work very well in standard content because anything less than a Master Villain will likely die before you even get the buff. -AFAIK Two Smoking Barrels only removes the damage buff from melee attacks. The crit chance…
  • So you'd probably want 2GM, Bullet Beatdown, Lead Tempest, Killer Instinct, Form of the Tempest, Quarry... You'd need Dex for FotT, Ego for KI, and I guess Int for Audacity on Quarry... Something like this... Archetype: Freeform Super Stats: Level 6: Ego (Primary) Level 10: Dexterity (Secondary) Level 15: Intelligence…
  • Super Stats: Level 6: Dexterity (Primary) Level 10: Constitution (Secondary) Level 15: Intelligence (Secondary) Powers: Level 1: Rain of Steel Level 1: Blade Tempest (Rank 2, Rank 3, Challenging Strikes) Main attack Level 6: Lightning Reflexes (Rank 2, Rank 3) Level 8: Form of the Tempest Level 11: Bountiful Chi Resurgence…
  • ...? Have a Robotic Eye or cyclops visor or something on your powersuit. Bam! Ego Blast is now an energy blast from your eyepiece. Empathic Healing? Ego Sleep? Ego Placate? Ego Sprites? Nanobots. Nanobots can explain ANYTHING. Summon Nightmare? Collective Will? Holograms. C'mon man, this is easy stuff compared to nonsense…
  • You keep saying 'metahuman' as if we're supposed to know what that means... But as far as i know, 'metahuman' is simply the comic book term to describe anyone with abilities far above normal humans, which is basically every superhero ever. You want to be a little more specific?
  • If you're using Overdrive, you should perhaps have SSS Rec instead of End. Overdrive scales with primarily Rec. And if you're abusing Revitalize, remember there's many tricky things you can do with cooldown abilities, like cycling Lock N Load and Immolation.
  • While this works, it's graphically ugly. The Chainsaw just hangs off to the side.
  • Yep, the bug has been there since release AFAIK. The trick is that there is a second or so between when you activate a PA toggle and when it actually fires and locks out all non-PA powers. Activate a maintain or charged attack within this time, and it will not be locked out. A bit of practice is needed on the timing, as…
  • Maybe Shoulder Launcher, Orbital Cannon...
  • Link is primarily a swordsman, but also has a bow, some thrown weapons, explosives and a bit of magic. You'll want an aoe sword attack for your main attack. As I see it, there's three main paths for this: 1. Single Blade - Reaper's Caress + adv - probably the most thematically appropriate. 2. Heavy Weapons - Cleave - Link…
  • Amusing fact: with the right timing, it's possible to use some PA toggles together with non-PA maintain attacks. RC is one such toggle.
  • Nice, man. Ah... probably. But I totally suck at keeping track of that sort of thing, so it's not going to happen from me. If anyone wants to have a go at that though, feel free. Maybe some players will be inspired to buy some of the costume sets by this? >.>
