Re: The best task force/trials in COH

I liked the Terra Volta respec, that was a lot of fun. The Abandoned Sewer Trial was more fun duo-ing it than with a large team. I'm sorry I missed the time period when it might have been possible to solo it. But on a large team, it was seriously chaotic but unlike the Terra Volta, more senselessly ...

Re: Your FIrst Character in SoH?

My main would be a Controller or Dominator version, which is not going to be available... so, like GladDog, I feel that a melee character will be more forgiving of beginner mistakes.

Re: Enemy combat methods question

We tend to agree that minions should not have regen, and that bosses should have it. But we'll (all) see how this works out. Final decisions are going to based on what is the most fun to play. I will say that a couple of our devs who were against in-combat regen reversed their view after we tested ...

Re: Anticipated Powerset question

If it's still called Dark Magic at release I'll ignore it and explain how it's not in the bio
Sufficiently advanced technology could be called magic, given that they are indistinguishable ;)

Re: Control Powers

First, I don't see Knockdown listed in the control effects. Is it considered as a secondary effect of other powers rather than a status effect on its own? In CoH, many persistent-knockdown powers such as Ice Slick were better control powers than Slows, and it is also a lot more entertaining to knock...

Re: Travel between levels of the ship

Railguns on the starting end, giant airbags on the receiving end. One-use crash helmets will cost 5 dust for each trip, but helmetless trips are free.

Re: Preliminary Buff/ Debuff List

If a target is at partial health, will a buff or debuff upon its health affect its current HPs? Also, is the same true of a max HP buff, when the target is at full health? Aggro debuff: is this specific to a particular user, or is this a general-pacify effect that is intended to turn the target to a...

Re: Boss Toughness vs minions

At the risk of horrifying our entire community, Malta sappers get mentioned because they were truly dangerous. whether they were too powerful is something that can be debated. But their debuff of endurance is what made them something to watch out for, and kill first if they appeared. It's what made...

Re: Accuracy, Resistance and Limits

As long as we're getting into detailed discussions of damage, I would like to point out another in-depth effect of accuracy that is often overlooked: action planning. Specifically, consider two characters, both with the same DPS. Character A hits 100% of the time, and takes 3 hits to kill a mob. Cha...

Re: Boss Toughness vs minions

What I'd like to see is less of a straight-up power increase in the Boss level, and ESPECIALLY in the Lieutenant level, rather than a multiplicative effect. Bosses and Lts should, in general, have some team buff and AoE debuff effects... not necessarily strong ones, but something to make larger enem...

Re: How will combat feel? And will there be heroic moments?

Blood and gore is a pretty small subgenre of comic books, largely filled with anti-heroes. The majority of comic book hero titles avoid it almost completely. As for the feel, Stone Melee had a very strong SMASH feel, much more so than Super Strength. But with a lot more experience in the powersets f...

Re: New Poll Questions

COH kept the numbers hidden for quite a while, for a reason. Should we be revealing them before launch? Inevitably we'll be changing them, enhancing some and reducing others because we will have balanced some things badly. Does that mean we also have to reveal every change as soon as it is made? I'...

Re: Primary Costume color question

I'm shocked that Black is not winning. You'd figure that primary colors would pretty much split the votes of those who like brightly colored characters, leaving Black and White to fight for those who don't, and I figured that Black would easily beat White. I guess I'm clearly over-analyzing things h...
