Your FIrst Character in SoH?

Postby Red5 » Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:01 am

I realize there is time to decide, but I tell ya true... I am thinking hard on it now already.

I really would love to re-create my more memorable characters from CoX. Yet 400+ years later, probably only 2 of them would actually still be around lol.

So I am now leaning towards making new characters and forming new stories. So what will they be? Hmmm. To start at least one Devastator as I like ranged characters and either brawler or a tank.

I am not much of a Tank player per say... I just don't like taking two or so taunt powers that are more than likely not going to hold aggro (talking from example of other games and not projecting this on SoH mind you). Yet as a Tank and not having said taunts excludes from a large % of PuG's*

But I do so love having hearty and tough as heck characters.

I hear Brawler and think Scrapper...but secretly hope more like a Brute, as Brutes were real fun to play. If they are Brutes then that will be done deal. If not I will have to see what the new scrappers are like and choose between the two.

Will I focus on AoE or Single Target (ST)? Honestly it will depend on a few factors, primarily on how will it look lol and match up to the back story I have in mind for that character. I love min/maxers and more power to them crunching it all out... I am just more of a does it look and feel fun type player.

So I ask you what do you want to play at start be it alpha, beta, or launch? Why?


*=I so miss the days I could log on a character and just play with my group and it didn't matter if it was Blaster or a Defender and it didn't matter if it was a blaster if it had AoE or ST

I would start with a Healer if that class is possible.
Why? Because I like helping and supporting others and a Healer is also a perfect choice for fitting into groups who work together on a mission and a good character for getting into contact with others - Healers are always needed ;)

My first character in CoH was a blaster and I had a lot of fun playing it. Then I created a defender which was ok'ish, impossible to solo effectively because I made it a healer.

In SoH I think I'll go with a support character of some sort first, probably a healer in spite of my CoH experience with them! I put together a quick backstory for mine some time ago. I really should update it but I'm waiting till I have my character ingame before spending time on that.

Even though I am a tanker at heart, I am leaning very much towards a melee DPS character in this game for my first character. Why? Because you always screw up your first character while learning any game. And melee DPS seems pretty forgiving for mistakes in builds.

Once I have a firm grasp on the game, it will be time for a tanker!

Melee DPS will probably be twin blades/ determination
Tanker will be Invul/ Super Strength

If Dark Melee is available for brawlers, then I'll be making Ebon Angel first.

If not, I have a fallback character planned, Solitaire, using spear/luck.

I will definitely be rolling a Devastator at launch. Corruptors were my favorite type in CoH and the Devastator Archetype seems to mimic their skills the most. I will probably have fire as my primary and my secondary will depend on what buff abilities are available.

Defender healer for me.
It will be in demand for teams at the beginning ;)

It depends on what the power sets actually look like, of course, but most likely, I will make a support character of some sort or another. I tend to prefer characters with heals, buffs/debuffs.

I'll probably go with whatever the Defender-style class is going to be. Hopefully there are a good variety of support power sets at launch.

My main in CoH was an Electric/Electric blaster. I like the range and I'm always shocking myself. So, in SoH, my first will need to be an Electric Devastator. Electric for the primary and not sure about the secondary.

Like someone posted above I'll start with melee DPS at first to learn the game then start rolling out the other characters.

The real question for me is: how many characters will I make this time?

I had a veritable army of characters in CoH, but not sure I want to sink that much time into a new game.

CoH is one of the games that I derived my usual MMO chars' personalities from. They have certain personalities and favorite weapons/magic/whatever tastes... so I'll probably revisit all of them, starting with a 2he brawler and ice blaster (or as close as I can get to those). They are my two best developed characters in the Zagadka Cinematic Universe.
