  • > @dialamx said: > I still don't understand how Hi Pan's voice is considered a "negative stereotype on Asian Americans." The character is a parody of David Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China. David Lo Pan was played by actor James Hong. The voice he uses for the character is his normal voice. The voice actor for Hi…
  • I see what you're saying, but the point is not to promote NW or STO to CO. The point is to expose CO to the bigger games' playerbase. Another major MMO company does in-game events to promote other games within their company library. Cryptic owns some CO IP if Im not mistaken, so it shouldn't be an issue for CO characters…
  • I'm of Asian decent and don't see Hi-Pan's dialogue offensive at all. Anyone speaking a language that is not their native one will naturally be a bit quirky. I doubt an American would speak Cantonese or Mandarin perfectly like someone born and raised in China would.
  • The /em danceseductive from Neverwinter. Too funny of an emote not to have in this game.
  • I think those binds you suggested was what I needed for Dino. I agree the Team Up interface is a bit cumbersome and those binds should help keep clutter to a minimum. As far as gear goes, I currently have Presence mods stacked in all my Heroic primaries with Vigilante secondaries, but went the Bonus Healing route instead…
  • I was told the game was shutting down back in 2017 when I debating going LTS or not. I ignored the doomsayers and bought it on sale. I didnt play much in 2018, but when I came back I had a whole lot of Zen I didnt know what to do with. Still getting free Zen 5 years later. Well enough paid for itself already. Keep in mind,…
  • I like that Thundrax loading screen. It's faclon awesome.
  • They should do some kind of cross-game promotion between CO, STO, and NW. For example, hit level 40 in CO and you get an exclusive mount in STO or NW, or something along that line. Or crossover type events where a NW boss appears in CO, or vice versa.
  • @criswolf09 I love your guides, I refer to them all the time. If you need to sic a Rooster on someone, let me know.
  • People usually take travel powers/advantage points last when retconning just for this very reason. Not the ideal approach from a design perspective, but saves money in the long run.
  • I got one doing a Steel Commando Grab alert.
  • Haven't had issues with cosmic wait times on my end (Pacific Standard Time). I know a lot of people went back to work/school/traveling now that COVID restrictions have lightened up, so that could have affected the population at certain hours of the day.
  • Both NPC vendors won't accept them? Weird. I'd submit a ticket.
  • The Gold Foil: Special Items vouchers are redeemable at the Collector's store at the base of the ramp in front of the bank. The bigger vendor has the actual items that you trade vouchers for. The smaller vendor next to him is who you talk to to trade old Gold Foil vouchers for the new, more specific ones.
  • More gameplay related than build related, but as a new tank, I highly recommend soaking every chance you get, especially since you don't have GCR gear and OV defender gloves yet. Block timing is #1 priority. The best gear in the game isn't going to save you from a missed block. The sooner you get the timing down, the…
  • Guided tours would be nice. The old maps are pretty spacious. They can also rent them out for birthday parties, wedding receptions, and class reunions. Perhaps a Halloween store.

  • Looking at the chart, "Ego" is for the Mentalist powers, I assume?
  • Do any of your other characters have serial missions that need to be finished? I recall having a similar issue. There was one toon I had that was in the middle of a mission but never turned it in. When I did, it finally unlocked missions for the toons I was working on. It may have just been coincidental, but wouldn't hurt…
  • If they ever do revamp devices, I hope they allow more of them to offer damage-type debuffs. Demolish and Armor Piercing devices would be popular for sure.
  • Maybe we can re-name Force Station Steelhead after him, with a lore plaque explaining his contributions to go along? Thank you Thundrax for your contributions. You will be very missed...
  • I agree with @warcanch. The co-founder you started Freedomforce with had as much right to promote whoever. It was as much your co-founders call as it was yours. If what your saying is true, there WAS a short time that you were OK with it. Your final message to not 'mess with guild settings or be kicked' was obviously a…
  • I'm speaking from experience here. I used to run a popular SG in CoH. I decided to take a break to play WoW with my family, RL friends. I gave some admin/ recruiting power to a member who was more active in the game than I was. When I came back after 3 months, the SG was max membership, and everyone was going to him for…
  • > @rojan1987 said: > So what you have told me is that I should only be playing this game and not take a break. A year long "break"? Cmon... It's not unreasonable (actually quite logical) for the members of that SG to assume you quit after not being on for that long. Who in their right mind would wait around for someone…
  • This is the 3rd separate thread regarding this drama. Just start a new one, and don't disappear for so long next time. Who knows, a new SG may work out better than the previous one.
  • Why for being honest with you and not feeding false hope in my previous post? Hate to burst your bubble, but if you think a blue-tier Q set is going to outperform or even be close to the same level as a gold-tier tanking set in the damage mitigation department, I don't know what to tell you, other than the sarcasm was way…
  • Awesome! Ill just trade my CC's Virtuous/OV set for full Armadillo. Don't need that many stats/threat to CC, and with all that 'All Damage' resistance at my disposal, I should be able to withstand storm ticks without blocking, unlike in Virtuous/OV gear where I have to. Same with Ape's lava.
  • I highly, highly doubt it is all damage resistance. The most prized drop from Therakiel's Temple, [Brilliance], is about 20% all damage resistance, and the higher gameplay-level players I know are almost selling their own souls for them. 50% all damage resistance for just spending questionite and no GCR, AND can equip at a…
  • Since this thread has been resurrected... Yes. This game still very much active. Yeah it may not be 2000 people on at the same time, but there's always enough people on to get worthwhile content done. Although you don't need LTS, I purchased it in on sale in 2017 (in spite of all the doomsday talk since 2009) and haven't…
  • Thank you for stating this. Also, keep in mind the symbol above your head determines what role you will be expected you to play. If you have a shield above your head, you will be expected at the very least to soak for the main tank, or stand on the side platform at Kiga, ready to take over in an emergency, keeping your…
  • I Agree with what Warcanch said. No matter what form of mitigation you take, you have to manage mobs to what you can handle. A form of AoE CC like Dragon Kick should be in a melee squishy's arsenal if attacking multiple mobs is their intent. The whole appeal/ugliness of Dodge/Avoidance is the risk factor involved: Make the…
  • No problem, and I'll see you at the cosmics! Rooster-Man
  • To be perfectly honest, farming resources by just killing stuff over and over isn't the most efficient way to get resources. You need to other stuff besides Smash farming if you want to make some money. If you're level 40 you can join cosmic runs and sell the trash items. Some drops like the secondary cosmic gear and…
  • 37% dodge? I'm hoping those are Idle numbers and not with your buffs up. The number with all your buffs up (minus MD of course) is what matters.
  • For Ape, when I melee DPS I usually just jump sideways out of the circle where the rock is about to land. You can still hit mid-air.
  • > @diggot said: > I still think that as dps with focus on dex and dodge gear, a dependable amount of dodge % > should be able to be reached to make up for the 50% less health. I don't see a reason why not, > and i dare anyone to give me a valid reason to why NOT. If you're gonna be cocky about it and brush off the honest…
  • Assuming you have fully invested your defense gear into dodge/avoidance, Dodge based DPS characters are perfectly viable for endgame content. But require an anticipatory approach to survival instead of a reactive one. Lava patches, for example. Instead of waiting for it to fully spawn before walking, anticipate when it is…
  • > @sannia1 said: > They already have. I can access VB via superjet on a character that hasn't done VBA. After one character has already done it. If you take in the entire context of my post, I was suggesting VBA be an optional quest chain instead of a mandatory one to open up VB.
  • Yeah its weird don't see the reasoning behind it. The should just open up VB from the get-go and just make the VBA quest chain a pre-requisite to open up TT instead, but that's a different topic altogether.
  • The Hybrid AoRP bug has been around for that long? That's quite the feat. At this point, we should probably just embrace it and celebrate its longevity. Maybe we can turn it into a boss fight. A giant bug named "Hybrid AoRP". One of the mechanics could be that tank must be overhealed through the entire fight. If the tank…
  • I'd be ok with a tiny upside down spinning pyramid that's noticeable only when you're actively looking for it. But I think something that would be in people's faces like a huge beacon would be too distracting. Imagine at Dino if two soaks die and the visual assistance blocks the MT's view of mama's bites and wireframes. Or…
  • If you don't do content that locks you out for hitting the recover button, I would just ditch the self-rez. On some occasions, it's arguably faster and more helpful to the group to just recover and run back than to wait on healers who are busy keeping the tanks alive. If you're willing to grind the currency for it, the…
  • Off. People use Disruptive FX just for the sake of being disruptive. Too bad the majority of mag users are lumped into the same group as the few inconsiderate ones.
  • Threat wipe. If DPS doesn't want to die, THEY need to control their threat. It's literally like less than half a second out of the entire fight. After 2-3 rotations, press your TW. Done. Maybe even do it once more after the cooldown to be safe. If they're waiting until they get faced towards to TW, they're doing it wrong.…
  • Can't say I've experienced the knock/hold through blocking issue personally, but I do agree Block gets buggy/unresponsive at times, as if the game can't keep up with inputs from the player's end. A smoother input transition from attacking to blocking would help a lot.
  • Quliphotic Warzone. You can get some GCR solo. Not only that, GCR is the currency for doing endgame GROUP content. All those GCR costumes and gear are rewards for doing stuff that isn't soloable. Why would you care for GCR items anyway if you're not planning on anything group related? It's like driving a big, bad pickup…
  • I second this.
  • The more you are able to contribute to the bigger picture, the faster the gear will come. Even Tanks/Healers/CCers could benefit from versatility, because not every encounter is going to need a CC, extra Tank, or extra Healer. With Dino and Eido, for example, an excess of these roles can actually hinder the group. I and…
  • @jaazaniah1 Ha! I'm actually trying to think of a theme right now with only a TW as a defensive power, I'll let you know lol
  • What's up with the personal assumptions? You know all my toons are dual passive, right? One of my tank/DPS has an interrupt for Tank form AND a threat wipe for DPS form. One of my tanks doesn't even have Resurgence. If a dual role setup can manage to fit in a threat wipe why can't a single role DPS? I'm actually tempted to…
