  • Just think of it like this - "primary" super stat is a bad name that's a leftover from before spec trees. Ignore it. Think of it instead as Spec Tree Stat - it's only purpose is which spec/mastery you want. Often times it ends up being the lowest stacked stat because it's only purpose is, for example, letting "secondary"…
  • I feel the need to state that while the force set in general needs some love to work a little better, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Force Cascade and feel it should either be left as is, or made to hit harder and leave everything else about it alone.
  • I'm pretty sure the entire CO staff consists of Kaiserin, and she's a dev, not a mod, so most likely, you're stuck in limbo. I don't say this to be negative, just that you shouldn't put too much effort into getting your account up on the forums. You're able to post, and not much happens here regularly anyway, and there's…
  • Yar. I see powers and come up with hero ideas. I get hero ideas and try to make them work with the powers. I like superheroes and freeforms let me do almost anything I want. Wants moar pawurz. Somehow this and also not this because it's always "ima just play a little bit then jump on something else" and then 6 months go by…
  • I had the reverse problem - could post elsewhere but not on CO - LTS etc. on CO and NWO, had a STO account I played for maybe an hour. Nobody ever resolved it. Arc said talk to Cryptic, Cryptic never answered any emails/bug reports, etc. Asked devs and community managers who shrugged. Just make a new account.
  • I think that's great to hear! Please keep us updated, there was chat about him last week, hoping for good news. The well wishes continue!
  • Yes and no - the chain is wonky from what I've seen; some pop up out of order like By the Book and the TV station one. After By the Book (War on Peace then library), Ladyhawke mentions Ka is still at the hospital and she'll have a study buddy when he recovers. There SHOULD be a mission following that where Ka and LH are at…
  • Very much this - I have a bank toon and a mod toon full to the brim with unlocks, gear, devices, sidekicks, etc., and, of course, mods so they don't take up inventory space. You can trade stuff amongst toons through the free hideout and shared bank you get - the only difference in hideouts is the penthouse TPs you to MC…
  • Question: how come the might dps build is Dex PSS rather than Str? And what is stat distribution? Thank you.
  • Because I want a butt slider, not waist depth. I want to be all Anastasia Kvitko/Demi Rose Mawby up in here. Let me be thicc! As for the whole writing thing - I think the comic series is a strong move forward - it's great to see some actual story arcs in game, with some decent to good voice acting to make it feel alive. I…
  • 1. Butt slider. 2. Hat/headwear slider. 3. More variety in Alerts - I love Day at the Mall as a grab, but some of the bank heists drag - reward should scale (like PoP) and there should be more - burning building where we put out fires, bubble victims so they can get out, and fight the arsonist - but also more locations for…
  • Gold Recognition drops from Cosmics (Qwyjibo, Teliosaurus, Kigatilik), and, I believe the Telios Ascending lair (but I may be mistaken). Silver Recog drops from same, plus a few dailies like alerts - talk to Patil and the one next to him - and some open missions like Destroids Rise Again in MC. Some missions do too - I…
  • So idk if you're aware, but as was briefly mentioned, there's the battle station in the PH - you can set team size and enemy type, as well as difficulty and that's a pretty good starting point to test survivability and damage. It's not perfect but you can set to 5 man team at max difficulty and you get 3 mobs of about 7-15…
  • Sooooooooooo much yes.... (although I did just charge some Zen a couple months back >.>)
  • Keep in mind, you also have the option of sticking with Ego for the spec tree, and stacking Con - your PSS DOES NOT have to be your main stat, and in fact, it rarely is. Balance between the stats and get enough Rec to have a full tank, which really isn't that much, maybe 30-50 points from a secondary piece of gear. You…
  • Still wishing him the best on his road to recovery.
  • I tried this. I couldn't read a darn thing.
  • You're right, I was thinking of Relentless Assault. I'll push through a few more levels with EGO/End/Con and see how that feels - my gear is pretty not great - using the winter set for easy scaling right now.
  • Not at all - it's not too developed - the character was actually inspired by the costume pieces - the rock bracers and inferno AT default costume, but tweaked a little and I wanted to try something combining the two, mixed with some personal background. Carlos Garcia is just a typical Central American kid who moved to the…
  • I'm loving your variation of the build but it seems energy is low when opening up combat and I'm wondering if this might change at higher levels? INT Rec was obviously never-ending energy, but EGO End has some management trouble, but I'm only at level 30. Does Thermal Reverb+Incendiary Grenade scale up to negate the need…
  • Ok I think we're having some terminology issues here.... When you buy a character you can buy various things: A character slot - approx 100 Zen / $1 each - IF you are/were Gold(monthly)/LTS, any character slot you buy will be happen to be freeform as long as the sub remains active - IF gold(monthly) and then stopped…
  • Thanks Flow! I'm digging it. Trying a few variations on it now - only level 27 so pushed land slide and resurgence back for quick sand and fissure to see how it plays. I'm finding Rec instead of End keeps me pretty much topped off, but I'm going to try the EGO/Con/End set up with incendiary grenade between giant bear runs.…
  • This is awesome, thank you very much! Which stat are you gearing for in Claws Tank DPS - Dex Con split?
  • I'm currently playing a toxic toon as my main, with a focus on Epidemic and Defile and he shreds through a lot of stuff. He's a little squish, but one growth mod changed that dramatically, and if I played a little smarter (i.e. blocked) I'd be fine. I forget who gave me the basis of this, but it's pretty darn good.…
  • Pion for the photobomb!! :p HI VIKKI!!! My main, Pion (seen photobombing Vikki's Red Carpet Walk), is a cosmic hero in the Genis-Vell style. He started off as a "Heroes Unlimited" character; a street level hero, but through circumstances (i.e. stupidity and lack of self-preservation instincts), ended up way out of his…
  • I just bought 10 character slots, all freeform, for, essentially, $1.60. Why? LTS (with 32 characters on it) + $20 for 2000 + 400 free/bonus + 20% discount (560 for 10 slots). I think it's time for folks to start reconsidering the whole "LTS isn't worth the price" thing. That's not even counting the 6 year break I took,…
  • Yay! Glad to see some positivity in game. Glad you're enjoying it, and welcome back! I took a break for a while too and am very happy to find it still trucking along.
  • Wants. Wantswantswantswantswantswants.
  • It's not about getting the set, it's about running the same boss endless times to try and get the set.
  • What's "The Cosmos Lock Box?"
  • I've never been involved in a wiki before, but is it possible to use the wayback archive to port info onto the fandom wiki and get it up to date-ish?
  • You can also randomly kill low level mobs for like another 100 tokens daily. I did that last night between alerts - slaughtered many a Black Ace with an AoE. Black Aces respawn pretty quick and there's A LOT in the area by the warehouses in Westside. Some folks are also murder-touring Vibora for the kill X number of Y…
  • Agreed. Most zones are HEAVILY under utilized. I have no idea what's on the east side of MC beyond Destroyer's factory. And I don't remember ANYTHING from Vibora except some spooky mansion somewhere, even though it's my favorite looking zone by far.
  • I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at here, but if it's to say that none of the other content is relevant anymore, I only partially agree. All the other content is still there, it's just that we, as a player-base, have seen it and just want to get to the quick payoffs. If there's a double xp from missions, there…
  • This stuff is fascinating. It's too bad more of this stuff isn't in the game proper.
  • The PVP is lame, but good folks make it less painful - there's some kind healers that pop you back up for the frenzy, and there's typically enough folks to get your kills relatively quickly. It's worth a shot just for the tokens. Just suffer like 10 mins a day - if you can take it, it's worth it. Not sure if there's other…
  • No not that - What I'm saying is we have a good community with diverse talents. We have player run costume contests, all kinds of artists and everyone and their mom has facebook/instagram/whatever. It's also my understanding somebody was doing youtube videos for CO at some point but is now in classes or something. I've…
  • I've been thinking about this since I came back, and how much I love CO despite it's flaws and shortcomings, but the thing is, I was playing this game for years before I stopped, and it wasn't because I got bored or anything; life just got in the way. Now I'm back and I'm glad it's still here, but I feel like the game…
