  • If you could, say, on a Daily basis, replay any and all missions AND all NPCs scaled to your level AND the rewards were worth it (even Tokens of some sort so that I can purchase the gear/items I want) would go a long way in restoring this game. …
  • If the things worked on vehicle weapons, then they might be useful. But, they don't.​​
  • (Quote) Any way to redirect the output to a file location? So one can save it and look at and print it out, etc.​​
  • If you take Con, you might as well skip the passive entirely and save the power slot and advantage points. Cause you can totally tank even dino on nothing but Str/con/xxx and defense gear. (That's basically what a regen tank is doing, and I've see…
  • If you want to stand in front of Cosmics with PFF, you absolutely need Con SS. In my experience using The Gun-isher as a PFF tank at the Cosmics, pretty much don't even calculate your PFF shielding into the mix. Oh sure, you'll get a little bit of…
  • I want clowns.​​
  • (Quote) I play several "older" games (>5yrs old) and I find it absolutely amazing how many players don't know the core basics. On the one hand, it gives hope that "new" people are finding "this" game and trying it …
  • BUG: Many melee powers will activate their animation, draw energy, but NOT do damage to super large NPCs, when standing at maximum melee distance. Max melee distance is just before the power naturally greys out because you are too far. However, I …
  • Therakiel's Temple has long been at the top of my FAVORITE lairs. So, I'm looking forward to the day I can set aside some large chunk of time for my first post-adjustment playthrough. However, that isn't any time soon for me. So, yeah, count me &…
  • Email and link received on 6/22/2020 for the Live streaming of this costume contest at 2pm on 6/22/2020. Turns out, it's actually for something in Neverwinter. Thanks for the Rick roll.​​
  • I hadn't considered it as "griefing tool" as described about using it in the PH. If too many anyone was around when you summoned him, he'd say his speech and bamf away. But, I suppose if you did it near those kinds of friendly NPCs, they…

  • could be. I haven't done this mission anywhere other than VBA in a long time.

  • The roof is just convenient in that it pretty much guarantees that the minimum distance to other NPCs has been met. That's all it means to "be alone". And, can't have other players nearby, either. You can actually summon him anywhere. …

  • And I think you misinterpreted the "0 talent" statement. Talents are the 6 stat picks plus Innate Talent. Not your talent in making a build. Personally, I feel you can take or leave out the Con from talents. Talents are best to help sh…
  • Well, to be fair, any thread that is Stickied is fair game for necro.​​
  • http://www.championswiki.com/index.php?title=Snakeskin_Surprise They're in the south section of Monster Island.​​
  • (Quote) Sheesh. I have this on the above mentioned Life Drain healer. It can still heal for a good amount. Especially in a fight like Gravitar. However, as you said, it can be Dodged by the recipient. They'll still get some healing though. A…
  • Different ways of approaching it. Sure, your example has you surviving one more hit. But, were you just blocking (I see the soak) or were you also attacking? Perhaps with the extra energy you could have DPSed the opponent down before you took th…
  • (Quote) As for the 3 points in Tough in the Constitution Spec, I'd still recommend the Fuel My Fire. If you have 200 points into SSSs, you get +300 health points from Tough. Not worth it, to me. And, even if you are getting boosted by AoPM(s), y…
  • You can get pretty good healing just from the Specs in Sentry and Sentinel. Adding any +healing mods in your Offense gear is not just icing on the cake, but extra layers. So, plenty of overhealing from those mods. Next, let's talk about PSS. Are…
  • And, in my opinion, don't spec or gear for Knock resistance. Cosmics aren't going to be knocking the tanks around unless you are in the tail area. Then, you're doing it wrong. As for other content, just blocking in time takes care of most knockin…
  • I did them on 1 character. I can't tell if I'm "done" or need one more. I defeated ... big lemurian guy. But, never had to fight Dr Ka, which is something I recall seeing in the forums. Or, if I did, it was earlier. Don't ask me how …
  • Large NPCs have problematic hitboxes. Some powers will ACTIVATE but do nothing (check the combat log) unless you get closer than should be required. Examples are: -Gauntlet Chainsaw is a 10' cylinder/column AoE attack. When I use it at Teleiosaur…
  • On a medium geared build, I can get 1.5k/sec crits from Celestial Conduit and almost 11k crits from Rebuke. If there were some tier 3 single target power, along with some of your suggestions, then Celestial DPS is a go. Also, there is a celestial …
  • Celestial just needs a way to apply the Dimensional debuff called Devoid. You have to go out of set to get the debuff. However, once you get it, the set can do decent damage. Celestial DPS - Freeform (Any / Multiple) v3.43:35 Super Stats Level 6…
  • Isn't it? Go back to Dr Ka's brownstone and talk to Caliburn. He gives the mission again. Can be done once every 24 hours, iirc.​​
  • Pardon if I draw upon a different game for this ... Back when I played Starsiege: Tribes, I was heavy into modding it. Learned a lot of pseudo-coding by playing with the scripting language for mods. My Meteor gun progressed from just shooting a m…
  • (Quote) Patience is a virtue for the young. DEW EET NAOW! Before I grow further senile.​​
  • Have you checked out the elevators? Do not assume that both go to the same location. Not to really dissuade you from posting in the forums, but many questions you ask can be answered in standard chat. However, it only reaches the overall zone tha…
  • Nothing complicated about the in-game money (globals, nationals, locals) currency. As above, 1 G = 10,000 L. Basic math. You earn this money by doing practically anything in-game. As you acquire items that have a monetary value, you decide whet…

  • Furthermore, 1 G = 100 N. 1 N = 100 L.​​

  • I put it on my pistol-packin' PFF tank, The Gun-isher. No threat advantage but the short duration is actually helpful at the cosmics with the exception of Qwjibo once the hearts are up. I can get a cast IN in between their big hits. I honestly c…
  • (Quote) Weird, eh? Skullcrusher is 2handed. I wish it had more utility besides Knock and Disorient. Then I could use it with in/out of set powers. But, that's for a different thread topic.​​
  • Some people are less than diplomatic in their replies. While the first sentence should be the one to focus on by the recipient, it is the less cordial comment following that always takes center stage in a rebuttal. As has been pointed out and supp…
  • I think the idea is to NOT have the passive being nursable. All of the other passives don't need or get support, other than what everyone gets. The use of the passive becomes too reliant on heals, bubbles, etc and for balance sake would be too wim…
  • As RavenForce mentioned in the other thread, one of the things "we" don't like about PFF is that "we" are constantly nursing it to keep it viable. This idea removes that. Let the testing determine the balance of thresholds and …
  • Just to be clear, there IS an actual "health number" to the PFF. Right? Such as ... 5k ... 10k ... 20k? Can it be brought to 0%? Or will there be a minimum it can get to? Such as 5% ... 10% ... 20%? Otherwise, sounds interesting to me…
  • (Quote) +1. In leveling 2 characters during this Defender Training event, my characters were still getting knocked and stunned through block all of the time. Even after I ranked them to r3 and blocked early. Y'know, like engaged the mob w/ block…
  • If you would've preferred a "wall of text" explanation that really delves into the EXACT this and that, one can be provided. (Image) Fortunately, Spinny was succinct. There can be minor adjustments to what Spinny said, but the basis of…
  • I hope my sarcastic "too long, don't read" comment wasn't taken seriously. You guys are putting up some serious walls of text, but really working the issue, as well. Good job. We really could use a better PFF.​​
  • Those are more reasons why none of my healers are JUST healers. If my healing is unnecessary, at least my modest dps and possible CCing is useful. And, most of my dps have an external healing ability and a multi rez power.​​
  • TL;DR becomes too long, DON'T read. heh Some decent points were made, however.​​
  • Yeah, I agree about the plus sign is no indication of intent or capability. Which is why I made the macro about my intent and what they should expect. Many did figure me out and thanked their healer. Other times it was like the Cosmics you descri…
  • The ones meleeing the boss were fine because I could stay close enough to them. It was the ranged players that kept running away from me when they needed the healing that drove me nuts.​​
  • (Quote) I just leveled a Lifedrain healer (Orichalcum) for the Defender event and the above is so true that I made a brief macro announcing what I am and please DON"T RUN AWAY from me. Most still did.
  • @rerrot, If you are doing Kigatilik, phase 2 pull yourself, I suggest you drop the 2 ranks in Mental Leech and put them on Masterful Dodge. That gives you a 100% Dodge. Super important when Kiga is sniping you. Ego Sprites does not need ranks, so…
  • hmm, you used to not be able to activate more than one power in keybind macro. However, just like the old PA+almost any other power, there might be some combos that work. I never was much for the bubble powers, so I didn't know about what you desc…

  • https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/championsonline#/discussion/175864/faq-for-bindings-commands is a huge post detailing many macros you can create. If you don't want to sort through that, there are still plenty of players that can help you with a…

  • If you play the story content as you level, you should receive gear as drops from the mobs you defeat and mission rewards. Once you reach the top level, 40, it's time to start working for that gear. Plenty of content available to farm for what you…
  • Perhaps a maximum daily "refine acclaim into SCR" just like questionite. Since the defacto max per 20 hour period for 3 Cosmics is 30 SCR, that would be the daily max you could refine. Not sure what to suggest about GCR.​​
