  • "Corrosive Lash" & "Dark Wand" Devices?!? Possible drops from Goblin & Vigil you say? Hmm,... <Rubs fingertips together with a fiendish smile> Do tell,... (I don't know WHY, but I like playing with devices. They're never as powerful as an actual power, but they add fun options for me.) :) ~Rags,
  • Thx for the tips Flow (As always) :) hmmm now I have to go and look,... If I can mix SB & HW together? Think the Thundercats 'small sword, to big sword' effect? Hm,... Looking at options,... (I hate when I get ideas! I HAVE to figure them out!) :P Thx guys
  • Good point, Thanks!
  • I've made SW toons before, but always went DEX PSS. Is there a way to build a decent SW toon with STR PSS?
  • Cool, now we have options between bikini/Skin & Bikini/chest wear + skin patterns! :) I am presuming that the EARLY event add mentioning a helmet as well as the other purchasable rewards was a copy/paste typo? Thank you all, ~Rags
  • Here is the hopefully correct updated of what I'm running for Ghost Boy Ghost Boy 9 Ranged DEX (Update 032521) - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.44:36 Super Stats Level 6: Dexterity (Primary) Level 10: Recovery (Secondary) Level 15: Constitution (Secondary) Talents Level 1: The Chiller (Dex: 10, Con: 10, Rec: 8, End: 10)…
  • AH, and the updates to the herocreator have rearranged my powers again, :) I do not use Ebon Ruin (Although you CAN I guess?) I use Ebon Rift for Danny's 'ghost portal' power. :)
  • Just for fun and giggles, here is MY 'Ghost Boy' aka Danny Phantom, As you can tell by the title, i went through a few versions, :) I could not fit in ALL of the powers (didnt try to fit in mind control for example) but kept the basic, early -stage Danny theme/powers, using the Toxic powers as teh base, added sonic scream,…
  • You HAVE to leave them up long enough to turn the lights back on for Mardi Gras and Easter! :)
  • YES! THIS! It has been stated, now it must be done! (It will go nicely with my new ghosthunter rifle) ;)
  • AH-HA, ok ID10T error. All I saw was the reward being a GhostHunter COSTUME , not the STYLE COSTUME PIECE. Thank you, ;P
  • Question, I see that you added the GhostHunter costume as a 5X Tako reward, (which is great for those who could not afford the Costume Key pack) And the backpack was a 5x reward last week, and the boots are in the event store costumes. But what about the 'Ghost Hunter STYLE' (Which I presume is a hair piece?) I do not see…
  • Here is a version I am using for my 'Death/ Reaper' guy, (Which I confess I totally cribbed from another player online) I think I tweaked him a little? but he works surprisingly well. I only played him lastyear and this year at Halloween, so he's only about 30+ so far, but everything works well. Death/Reaper 102919 -…
  • OK, the new social instances in Vibora sound cool, bu tI dont hang in Vibora enough to know my way around, are they marked on the big or mini maps? Or do I just wander around til I find them? :P (Are they in the low-lvl vibora? Or the high-lvl apocolypse Vibora?) I am excited to get all the parts for the Ghost 'hunter'…
  • Im looking over some of my builds, I tend to go Dex PSS,(because thats what I started learning with) but they usually have rapid attacks I can spam, or long sustain attacks. (Lots of ticks/chances to crit) Since most of these powers are charge or clicks/throw, I am going to try EGO PSS, see how it works out for me. Thanks…
  • Thanks flow, yes I was looking at a list of optional powers. For the theme, almost any of the grenades would work, especially with the right advantages (As would throw fire EB instead of Boomerang Toss). And I was looking at Toxic nanites for a booster too,... So, if you dropped the melee completely, youd run with EGO PSS…
  • Ah, I am actually still collecting those pieces. For now, I am using a combination of the thin-banded tights pattern, with dirt and colored to look like old (tan) bandages, Over that I am wearing the thin straps on arms and legs (some have small rings on them, forget the name) they have 3 different colors in the straps, so…
  • Yep, I can (and I am!) using locust cloud and can attack just fine. (Although the visual effects do not seem to work while flying. I wanted to be the locust cloud spewing locust clouds!) ;P It is Skull flight, and maybe bat flight, that disables using other powers while in flight.
  • I won't lie, I'm a little more excited than I was before,... Between the broom AND the 'GhostHunter' costume? Time to make some mischief! (And maybe a couple of new toons!) :)
  • @flow- Thx for notes, always appreciated. I mainly picked Condemn for the Stun adv, (didn't see Wisp fitting the theme? but I'm flexible. Sometimes) ;P Same with DE, mummy-life-sucking. & Venom breath, theme. Breath Maybe a little Overkill/unneeded with Epidemic? (Shrug). I was aware of the melee on DE, but had NOT thought…
  • OH< And I did like the swap to Pounce too. I picked Mighty leap for the innate mini stun, but Pounce's KD to trigger Enrage/Pulveriser is probably much better! CC & energy return in one! :) Thx again,
  • OK,... So you didnt change too much, swapped Ego blast for MLeech for the Dependency, and traded the AO (Aggressor) for Conviction for another heal (Another heal IS always good) On your update. Would Mleech, Mind Drain & ego storm benefit from swapping Rec (or Con) to Pre SSS? (As on your previous Debuff/DPS build?) Or…
  • Thank you flow, as always :) That is VERY much what I was first thinking, (I FINALLY found Vuln, thx) ;P Here is what I settled on trying first, using TP for a single ranged attack, Mind Drain for an Att/heal, and Ego Storm for a local lockdown while I punch them., :) Otehrwise a 'normal' DPS might build(?) I did NOT stat…
  • I had noticed the 'cannot scroll down to Post Button' bug. Nice to know they are working on it. I will try the TAB workaround until then. I do hope that at some time they add/extend/ allow more max character slots somehow again. I am a casual player, and do not have 140 toons. Yet. BUT I love creating characters and…
  • Huh, TBH I hadnt even thought about support-oriented stuff, I was thinking mostly a debuff or heal maybe? Thx, new thought direction. I'm honestly more of a 'fun' and/or 'theme/flavor' guy over MinMaxing DPS, (although, I'm usually pleasantly surprised how well some of my theme builds end up doing at cosmics) ;) So CC is…
  • @Flow, Thx as always for your feedback, I'm a little confused, I thought that ANYthing that knocked could trigger Enrage or Pulv? I may be getting my Ricochet throw confused with Throwing blades, but I know that ONE of them does a knockdown?
  • Also, since you did mention HW or might as a possible build, here is my other honor build for Cap, using HW as a base. Minuteman (HW) B - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.43:35 Super Stats Level 6: Strength (Primary) Level 10: Recovery (Secondary) Level 15: Constitution (Secondary) Talents Level 1: The Devastator (Str: 10,…
  • Wow, I get to be the first to try and help someone in a thread! :) Well here is a build I'm using for my 'Cap Honor' build cobbled together from several threads in this forum about that. Cap Honor A Dex Str Rec - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.43:35 Super Stats Level 6: Dexterity (Primary) Level 10: Strength (Secondary)…
  • LOL< well, I never claimed that I wasn't stupid! ;P I have a HW/Fire toon whose main HW power is Cleave, (along with Brimstone & Vicious Decent) the rest were fire powers (Flashfire & Hydra). I always liked the way it worked. (I see that Cleave now has the Rampant/Reckless advantage it did not used to have. So it makes it…
  • Hey Squirrelloid, Thanks for the thoughts, I agree with you on 2 out of 3, I love Brimstone, and I like Arc of ruin just fine, (And both are perfect for a HW/Fire toon) BUt Eruption? Hm, I like it fine, I guess? it IS guaranteed to apply Clinging flames, and knock instead of the %chance that Cleave has, but that…
  • Thx again Jaaz, Flow, everyone. (I've been away, had to dodge a hurricane and put son in hospital, RL is BLEAH!) ;P For my latest toon, I went with Jaaz's Sehkmet build, tweaked it a bit, and it is working very well so far. I call him my 'Sword-Sage of the Djinn' her is the tweaked build: Djinn Sword-Sage 3 (Rags) -…
  • @Jaaz-So its a dex-based TK blades build? Nice, I'll file this away for future reference, even if I go another route. Thx! :) @both- In my minds eye (and several artworks) I see the Efreeti as big and burly (IE=HW) types, but a slim, agile efreet could still beat you senseless! ;P (I guess a big, burly-looking guy moving…
  • @flow- Thx for thoughts, as always. Yeah he's a bit all over the place I admit. ;P I admittedly went with 'What powers I like/look cool' rather than min/max or work best together. (Although I did throw in fire snake only for debuff boost.) My first thought was run him as a mostly ranged based, (Spell casting efreeti)…
  • Ah yes, ALSO true! If you use it when you only have a sliver of health left, it is probably too late. Especially if your MOB has DOT'ed you. Like I said, with me it is as much skill as luck, doesn't always work, but when it does, YAY! Surprisingly, I discovered that TUNNELING is similar. It prevents most (I think it is all…
  • Just a thought, If your looking for a way to get out of imminent demise, I discovered that the basic Teleport power is also a good, quick 'get the heck out of Dodge' card. If you turn off your energy builder so you dont auto attack when you come out of it, you can usually get far enough away from whatever was killing you…
  • Agreed! +100%! Appreciate ALL the work you do/have done Aesica. I can't imagine trying to build new characters ingame without this awesome resource! Thank you! ~Rags~
  • Yeah they nerfed that cost WAY more than they should have. Now its just OP (Over Priced) ;P Still, have to love lingering advantages/force and TK shields! :)
  • Cool, Just wondered if there was something I was missing. I would move to TK shield, but w/ the lingering adv being 3 pts now,... not with this toon anyway. ;P Thx much
  • From curiosity, why Eldritch shield on the DPS (ish) build? Instead of TK shield? Is there a benefit to it over another that I'm not seeing at first glance? (Entirely possible, as much as I like this game, I'm still no powers-matching expert) :) Thx! (Again!)
  • Thx for the Ideas Flow! I'll check it out. (Been doing that a lot this last week or two. I think being stuck at home is getting to me. Finally) ;P
  • I enjoy reading these posts as well. It is very kind of you (Not JUST Flow of course, he just seems to be the most prolific) ;P and I get a lot of ideas from these. Speaking of ideas, how would you tweak that last posted build as a DPS version? (SOme healing OK, but primary would be dmg) I like pets and summons, (they not…
  • Thanks for the notes Flow! Appreciate the time, as always. :)
  • Just a note: The info links on the login /launcher mentions that in honor of Kaju week, the Enlarge devices, both Perm & Temp, will be on sale this week. But in the Z store there are no sale items, everything looks to be full price?
  • Ah yes, Patience IS a virtue. Alas, it is not one of MY virtues. O_o I like the suggestions. <Picard>MAKE IT SO NUMBER ONE! </Picard>
  • LOL, We'll I'M good with it! Been a while since I went monster hunting,... :)
  • Yep, Must be my turn tonight I guess. :P Multiple, repeated, continuous 'server not responding' and then disconnections. Now happening as I try to log in with a character, not waiting until i actually enter the game. As far as I can tell my other online games are not having any trouble. So unlikely it is my local internet.
  • I havent been having any trouble until today. kept seeing a lot of others in chat talking about the 'problem' but I was fine. Today I cannot play at all. I log in, (After multiple 'attempts to contact update server') manage to choose a character and enter the game, then 'server not responding' until it kicks me ALL the way…
  • Great, thanks for the ideas! (As always) :)
  • Yeah I knew it wasnt 'min/max'd' or anything, one of my early attempts to make a build of my own. :) Thank you for the notes and ideas, I'm gonna go take a look at some revamp ideas in the PH. If you have any other ideas that might work, following the idea of a 'basic blaster rifle & Laser sword' mech suit, let me know!…
  • As usual, I like Flow's take on things. :) Here is a build I've been playing with, similar theme. I wanted a 'basic' mech battle suit, using a rifle and laser sword powers. (I was envisioning Robotech, I'm old school) ;P Mecha Suit V2 - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.43:35 Super Stats Level 6: Dexterity (Primary) Level 10:…
