I went with something else

I loved the monsters in the infusions. And frankly everything else is pretty good too

Monsters

Monsters

Monsters

I was inquiring about non-human stuff months back, they implied animals & monsters may not be in the game for some time. A few months later, they give us werewolves and snow monsters :lol:

You really, really gotta love SoH. Compared to the other successors who get your hopes up and do not deliver, they get your hopes down & over-deliver :lol:

You guys are great, haha.

I like the public event system.

I don't remember in which game it was, that it had (Guild Wars?) but one feature I would like in SoH too.

That everyone, who comes into a certain distance to the event is asked if he want to join an automatically created raid.
This would make it unnecessary that one player has to start a raid and invite everyone, and no one has to ask and wait for invites.

This would also help players who are too shy or not confident in their play to group, and show them that it can be fun.
And more raid playing can come from it, because after the event players can decide if they want to do more raid/event content together.

Consultant, do the monster scale? That way a low level can fight effectively (or participate) along side a max leveled character for special events.

For the question of "do the monsters scale?"

The answer is that they do not scale right now, if what you mean by that is that these monsters should provide a similar level of challenge to a basic level 15 and a basic level 40, with the same archetype and powers.

We would like to get this coded, but it is not coded yet. We do intend to do it, thoguh.

cool

one other thing. I can't help but notice dust collection is 10 no matter if you kill a minion or a boss. you get 10... that really should change. I'm sure it's in the works.

Yes, that's a placeholder right now, and easily changed.

I love it all! This video sealed the deal in my mind, and heart, that SoH will be the de facto Successor to CoH. Tall words from someone that hasn't even played it yet, but I can just feel it all coming together, and exceeding beyond even my wildest imaginings.

Definitely the public event system, as this will lead into invasion events, and any number of special outings in the beta!

I loved almost everything.
I especially liked the feel of the public event.

Watching it definitely highlighted the need for combat idle animations separate from out of combat idle animations. That will make it much smoother looking to move from power to power animation

Also what plans are there for improving NPC combat AI/tactics?

I have seen this suggested several times on different media.
