  • So of course the device isn't in the debugger in test. I'll have to throw it in some toons inventory, copy them over then retcon to play with it. Good discussion on the options though. I'm working up another variant using Dex/Con/End with Chilled form and UT. Would drop the gunslinger theme though. Something like (not…
  • Good point about PFRG keeping UT active. And if I am using the piercing side, I can always tap Particle Wave to refresh it. But MSA uses INT, while UT uses end. So would get less effect from it. And it did just occur to me that a 40' reverse lunge from breakway would likely put me out of 50' range for regular 2GM. So frag…
  • Breakaway has a 6 sec cooldown I think, Frag has a 10 sec. (at least according to herocreator) Shorter activation time, and with the adv for Armor piercing having a chance to apply to secondary targets, Frag is just primary. I'll have to play it a some and see how the energy is. (Its still theretical at this point) I was…
  • I am thinking of a different direction for a Pulp Fiction Ray Gun Build. Timegunner - Freeform (Ranged Damage) v3.44:37 Super Stats Level 6: Intelligence (Primary) Level 10: Constitution (Secondary) Level 15: Recovery (Secondary) Talents Level 1: The Mountain (Str: 8, Con: 10, Ego: 10, End: 10) Level 6: Daredevil (Ego: 5,…
  • In my Post on War on Peace open mission tips, back when the mission first came out, I specifically said "I can see this being abused very easily for levelling purposes." Obviously came true. I don't see why it needed a Nerf though. The game is built around avoiding content to level quickly. The whole on alert system is…
  • Vapor Form. (under Ice) is completely wrong. Wrong description, Wrong advantages. Its a threat wipe, that gives you flight, and damage resistance, but prevents you from attacking. Advantage to add cold snap, and restoration.
  • Thanks. I listed CoAP and power conversion with the EUs because they can be used in place of one. I'll add Dark Transfusion there as well. As for Fluidity, I've never used it, but I thought I heard that people have issues with it at cosmics (for example Dino's poison spikes, or Hold attack) because it doesn't count as…
  • Not to necro an old thread, but here is where I ended up on the idea so far. Elemental petmaster rebuilt - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.44:36 Super Stats Level 6: Endurance (Primary) Level 10: Ego (Secondary) Level 15: Intelligence (Secondary) Talents Level 1: The Gunslinger (Dex: 10, Con: 10, Ego: 8, Rec: 10) Level 6:…
  • Copied over and rebuilt by Marksman AT. Played around a bit. Feels like my storm of arrows is doing less damage. Did it get reduced? Like the new rapid shot. I felt that archery needed a single target maintain. Nice to have. So the basic rotation would be a full charge straight shot to apply AP and Download, then either…
  • Wind takes a little hit here maybe. It already has the problem of having to deal with 3 damage types (crushing, cold, lightning) Having a buff that could affect 2 out of the three at once was useful. (elemental damage) As well as people who might want to use the Energy Storm Ult.
  • I assume the Marksman AT is going to get a rewrite? What is that going to look like. Might give us a better idea of how the Dev's see the new powerset being used?
  • Not sure if you have ever seen this, but its helpful https://champions-online.proboards.com/thread/3372/behemoth-archetype-guide-2 A few general thoughts 1: You aren't applying Demolish anywhere. May want to consider that on either Roomsweeper or Shockwave. 2: To apply secondary challenge to a main target you need a…
  • I never played STO, so never knew exactly what it was like. But yeah, I remember when they removed it. Didn't have any Devs left who knew how it worked. Anyway, like I said, it was a pipe dream.
  • I was running a train last night. We were clearing the OM in 3-4 min each. Cycling through 4 zones constantly. We actually caught up a few times, getting through all 4 zones and back to the 1st one before the 10 minute timer elapsed. Must have ran it at least 20 times. I can see this being abused very easily for levelling…
  • I know its a pipe dream, but I would like to see a GM mode for people to run real roleplaying content. Bring your group into a private instance from a choice of locations. You yourself can take on the appearance of a number of preset NPCs or have a number of costume slots you can customize. You can (as the NPC) interact…
  • There is a "Skip Dialogue" crystal right by the door in the library Bug: Socrates still gives out the "Goodwill Hunting" mission, but talking to Krax no longer resolves it. Bug: (I think) I believe the mission is supposed to fail if Krax and Eversol die, But there appears to be a condition where they die and the mission…
  • Wait, the new overpowered war on peace is also the next installment of the serial? I gotta throw a flag on that one. A few flags. I take back my previous supportive comments. 1: A mostly solo-able storyline shouldn't have a grossly overpowered OM in the middle of it. Its gonna kill repeatability to have to try to get…
  • There is a whole game full of solo content. This is a MMO, multiplayer. I'd like the idea that more content requires people to work together. The biggest problem is getting people to do it. And the main issue (IMHO) is that the best gear in the game is grindable in a (mostly) predictable method. So there is little reason…
  • I love my End primary Lightning DPS. with Hardended giving you HP, and Readiness boosting your equilibrium, you are in good shape on both HP and Energy. I don't have it in herocreator currently, but tried to build it from memory. Close range DPS. For Aoe, sparkstorm and storm summoner (which applies superconductor) and…
  • 3 cheers for the Devs for responding to players concerns! Hip Hip Hooray!
  • Agreed that not having the vendor stick around for a week after the event was a real screwjob. Particularly when with the recent bloodmoon where the throne didn't even show up in the store till after the event. That experienced trained the userbase to wait till after the end of the event to spend coins. And now you screw…
  • Guess they wouldn't benefit from the specs in the commander tree either then. So i guess it wouldn't really be a pet build then. Use hurricane to apply chill and NI, and devils to take advantage of it. Maybe throw in typhoon But it would all be somewhat secondary to whatever else I base the build around. Maybe start off…
  • So what's the point of Cosmic week if the GM's aren't going to do anything about the trolls that are grief-ing all the cosmic runs. People are getting less rewards, not more, because the trolls are blocking any runs from finishing.
  • I thought the cat changes was that we would only have to do 5 runs for the new sidekick/perk. Rather disappointing that it is just dropping the number of cats to 5 for the individual quest. Honestly 5 cats or 9 cats doesn't make that much of a difference. (other then to mess up Aesica's maps.) Still have to run the mission…
  • How do we know if we have a Broken OVERRIDE Sidekick? Are the Therakiel alerts/rampage still up?
  • Re- the harmon weapons. Kind of sucks, while the stacking is nice, the single use is a pain. I used them heavily, and just lost 2/3 of my uses. But more importantly, you gave Fire all weapons an 8:30 recharge. EIGHT MINUTES THIRTY SECONDS!?!?!?! That's a bit ridiculous! Can you give it a reasonable recharge? If you want to…
  • I know this is a little old, but was it ever looked it? I tried joining a private queue 3-4 times last night for Therakiel, and my game crashed immediately upon joining each time. What was really funny was that one time it kept me in the queue long enough to start the rampage, so when i restarted and logged back in, I was…
  • Was the vlad curse/spark shield interaction fixed? (and and thorns as well I hope?)
  • In the Baron alert, there is an invisible object on the map. In the hallway leading to him, at the cross intersection where you encounter a group of mob down either branch. At then end of the right branch. I could see the mob, but couldn't target and he didn't target me. I went to the side of the hall, and we were able to…
  • Are the new devices/auras bind on pickup, or bind on equip (or we should be so lucky bind to account?)
  • Tried a run last night. To be fair there were only 4 of us (couldnt get a 5th to stay reliably). We couldn't get past VS. Took a while to get the hang of killing the sigils. But once we got that down it was a drag. The spawns hit hard, but a quick CC to slow them down enough to kill them before the could do much damage. I…
  • Shatter is also your friend for tanking with glacier. While blocking with ice shield, the target is going to get chilled so you get the damage boost from shatter. its a click damage with ok output and challenge. Of course the problem is you give up your energy unlock to get it, so outside of cosmics you will have energy…
  • Is Override basically the same as Lil Dogg13? Just renamed?
  • Noticed the same issues with the speech bubbles not syncing with the voice overs. And putting text in the NPC chat channel. Particularly since I don't always play with sound on it would have been easy to miss. After giving the mission, some indication that you need to exit the building would have been nice. I was waiting…
  • Agree about making sure there are enough artifact hunters. I had to kill way more then 10 to get all the drops Dragon staff Indicate in the description that it is a maintain . I thought it was a summon. I assume even though your "transform" into the dragon, you are still yourself in terms of hitbox, damage resistance, etc.…
  • For those of you who havent noticed, the toymaster also has all stores up. So if you are really just short a few, buy up those old AFs and costumes and trade them in as well.
  • so about 470k Q for a rank 7. Thats not bad actually. What else were you going to spend it on?
  • Behemoth 11 lvl choice is wrong. Thunderclap or Demolish, not thunderclap or roomsweeper. (unless you changed it from what was in PTS)
  • Is the Behemoth AT change out with this patch? Or did you take away its energy gain from Defiance, but NOT give it the EU to make up for it?
  • Re my comments on the visual effect of the bastion/Defensive combo shield. I just checked in PTS again. I mixed up the health bar effect with the "in game" effect. While the shields do tint the health bar to so shield strength, the do not have a direct visual effect on the character. So I take back my concern. Non-issue.…
  • That's my point, you have to explain it away. Actually, now that I think about it, the native shield with Defensive Combo has the same problem. (and its a core function, so you can't not have it.) No matter which combo you take, (beatdown has a chance to apply reckless) you will end up with a shield just for punching…
  • Was thinking about the might revamp while on vacation. And something bugs me about the new reckless mechanic. Nothing from a game balance standpoint, but more a conceptual issue. Might is the most "basic" of the "superhero" powers. Big strong guy (or girl) punching things a lot and soaks up a lot of damage. (Hulk, Thing…
  • Is Behemoth 11th choice going to remain as in PTS currenty (thunderclap or Demolish) or going to change to what is listed. (Thunderclap or Roomsweeper.)
  • Bug Punitive Pummeling Adv on retaliation. There is no "cooldown" or delay on it. Stand in front of a breath attack and watch it trigger repeatedly, with 100% knock. Great for stacking enrage but probably not intended to be that fast.
  • Heck just make it a giant PVP zone for a bit. We can make our own party!
  • Yes, I meant outburst, not overpower. I had hoped that NEP was a little better then that. Why is it that all the fun sounding powers don't actually work well. So if I am running END PSS with the End of the line and outburst (and hardened), the goal is to keep end above 90% as much as possible. (dex/str secondaries) Playing…
  • You don't have end of the line on lume slash in that example. I feel like if I am going that route, I might as well go end PSS for overdrive and double up on the high end bonus. END/dex/con (dex mastery) And try to get NEP in there as well. Isn't both Resurgence and Conviction a bit of overkill? Maybe lose resurgence for…
  • While Vikorin is the most egregious case of healer aggro, I have run into other cases where I grab aggro of random mobs, particularly if no one is using high damage AoE's. So its rare, but there are cases where threat reduction on the healer could drop them below what tanks and DPS are putting out in incidental AoE damage.…
  • Aaaaannd with the new darkness changes its made less useful. Since the Shadow blast no longer stacks Devoid, you have no way to stack devoid on targets, severely reducing the DPS.
  • Are the powers on the Become Chaos Daemon ( and I guess the Become Ghost) going to be modified to better work with the darkness changes?
