Are there power types that you prefer to play because they speak to your heart?

The results of the poll so far are really interesting. When I first started playing CoH, my first character was a scrapper. Eventually, I played all the archetypes in that game, but scrappers and melee characters always had a special place in my heart. When CoH closed, like many in the community, I started playing SWOTR and my first character was a sorcerer. The sorcerer class is range damage and healing. That combination also speaks to my soul. The third class that speaks to me is the debuffing controller class. In CoH, that was a high skill class because the controllers did so little damage. In SoH, all those will be available, and more.

From Marvel Heroes, Scarlet Witch's Chaos Warp(i think that it was called) or as I like to call it "the moving bubble of death and destruction." It was a great animation. I hope you can pull some inspiration from that games power effects. I also liked Ghost Riders power, Ride, which left a trail of flame everywhere and caused damage. I also like orbital lasers like Champions Online. As far as some pet powers, it would be neat to see floating drones around your character that heal or attack or combine to cause larger effects.

You might also look at a game that never made it out of development. Waaayy back, about 9-10 years ago, Phospor Studios was attempting to replace the lost City of Heroes with a game called Project Awakened. Check out this unfinished Unreal Engine 3 footage. It could have been awesome. 😥

Super Strength and Invulnerability are just classic staples. I've loved them in CoH and CO, less so in DCUO (since they didn't really exist).

I wish a game would really capture the feel of super speed in combat. It's more than just a travel power! So far, no MMORPG has been able to get it down as anything other than running fast.

Illusion & Mind control - This is the powerset Harlequynne is built around. Tricksters are my favourite archetype (one of the many reasons for my name).
Lifesteal/drain-tank melee builds - This the core of Ebon Angel. She heals through damage, and gets stronger the longer she fights, draining the enemy to buff herself.

These are my two "platonic ideals" - things I'd like to be good at, and enjoy or admire in others.
