  1. Now that we are allowed to post videos in game, I came back to do as promised and provide videos with in game footage of these mods at work. There are approximately 3 Mods per video, depending on length of each segment. Names of mods are listed in the title of each video and they are marked with white lettering with the mod name in the videos to make it easier to skip to the next mod and know which mod you are viewing. There are seven videos total, I will post them as they complete uploading. Last video was uploaded at 5:30 AM Eastern time.

  2. As usual, @FrauleinMental and @Midnyte are much faster than me with their recaps. It is always tough to add something of relevance to that, but here we go anyway πŸ™‚ Here my little thoughts on what I absolutely have to call the "We will always have Cap Au Diable" Theme Team Run! - Hollywood would have been proud of that Kick-Ass team of Celebrity Movie Stars! - I am again amazed at what the turnout was and how everybody brought their own style and ideas to the team. - Double-Iced opposition is very helpless, beginners threat level. - Interesting to see Co

I have to say it is disappointing and tiring to read the endless bickering and back and forth spreadsheet talking. @underfyre with his claims that are never substantiated and spreadsheets that are shown to have either rotation or math errors, @Monos King simple request of a test being deflected over and over, even @Obitus diatribe. Now, I'll say his upfront. I think Iv'e been around long enough to be understood I don't hate any of the persons I've named and that I am not someone who is aggressive. I think.

  10. Fire/Rad or Fire/Elec would be my picks. Fire/Elec has some great melee attacks that you can slot with KD->KB and +recharge, so shit stays fallen down in your Rain of FIre. It also has a nice damage aura and really has no end issues ever with Power Sink. And it has two great fast-animating ST melee attacks (one if you slot it with procs for up front damage). @Nemu and I have posted some builds. I'll throw my most recent ones below. Rad has less blappy goodness (Tier 9 takes too long) but it benefits from being in the middle of mobs with Beta Decay, and has a somewhat useless but neat

  11. Hmmm. I hope folks aren't misinterpreting the relaxing of the video rules to mean they can trample on IP rights. I would just take note and maybe shoot a message to the GM's to let them determine what's going on and if it's allowed.

So again, thanks for a great summary! @TrixieKixx, this was an awesome theme idea. I had such fun with the role-playing. πŸ˜‰ Everyone was so creative and I really did feel like a glamorous movie star of yesteryears running with my cronies! @TraumaTrain, loved reading your bio and your creative pseudo-names...

We wound up going to two wineries and I was a wee bit tipsy when I came home. This resulted in a nice nap before and equally nice dinner that my hubby made with more wine πŸ˜„ I'm going to put up this coming week so you can get ready and then I'll be ruminating about June.

  15. @Snarky You can, anytime you make a non-praetorian character say yes when it asks if you want to do the tutorial, then choose Breakout.

  16. Well, the best chain for DB is BF-AS-SS-AS. It's a fast chain. Really fast. And the best chain for Claws is FU-SLASH-FOCUS. You get a lot of the same benefits between db/claws, but with DB you can slot another -res in the set due to sweeping strike. It adds up. And sweeping strike hits hard as hell. Also, swords look cool. Or double chainsaws. Or axes.

  22. Great 50s fun today! It was pretty late in the week when I saw y'all were going with theme-appropriate names as well, but I found an alt who was kinda generic (not literally!) and renamed her for Grace Kelly. Our starting lineup, ripped from the Silver Screen! Speaking of Legacy (Chain)... This part of Cap also looks like it was ripped out of the 50s. Getting ready to beat down Infernal. Post-zombie cake (donuts) for @TrixieKixx's birthday!

  25. I had long hoped that COH would have added animation options to the different power sets to allow us to project the different ranged powers from different body locations such as eyes, chest, head,... So since that never came about I was thinking, why not just create an optic blast set that allows you to choose different power options. So the unique thing about this set is when you choose your first power (tier 1 or 2) you also get an option to select what damage type your eye beams will have. Each one would have the same proc effect as the existing power sets. Current

Here is a link to my Discord server, if you're on Discord, and there is also a HC base building topic that is quite nice. https://discord.gg/2QkPXjmD Also, in game, /chanjoin Base Builders Inc (I think that's right...) or give me your global and I'll invite you. There are a lot of people in all of those areas very willing to come in and give opinions on your base. I do recommend getting a few, so you can pick and choose those which appeal most to you.

  30. Going off what @Replacement suggested, there's plenty of material from Kheldians to formulate some more powersets, enough to make a feasible Blast, Armor and Assault set for both Peacebringers and Warshades for a total of six more powersets. The only issue is, what would we have to gain from making these identical in affect to the Kheldian versions? Obviously we don't want to make Kheldians redundant, so I think if we adapt the powersets so they look visually similar, but have different effects, we might be onto a winning combo. To that end, I've changed the secondary e

  31. Sign me up with Mother Earth Goddess for now. Beast/Nature MM. I might switch it out later if I roll a new one. And check the level range of Silver Mantis, I believe she is a range higher, considering that Sharkhead is a lvl 20 zone. I mean, I wouldn't set foot in Sharkhead at lvl 15, LOL, that's why I'm questioning it. πŸ˜„

  37. If you want to really go back a ways, look up the history of The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet. In radio, writings, TV. and later comics. You'll notice a certain last name: Reid. The Green Hornet was really Britt Reid, a wealthy newspaper owner with other investments in his financial empire. Then realize that the real last name of the Lone Ranger is Reid. (His first name has been changed up a bit over the years, but most settle on "John" the name Tonto put on the fake tombstone.) Ranger Reid had a secret silver mine, from whence his silver bullets came. The mine was maintained, in p

  39. LOL I just completed on my pvpish build demon/rad MM. no deaths but SLOW. stopped clocking after 20 minutes but I think it was closer to 35. Eventually gave in and started using all incarnates and a shivan on trapdoor. This map sucks for MMs in general though not just the caves, but dropping between levels caused my pets to sit above me at watch all the mobs surround me. Twice was the closest i came to death. Just to be clear on the notoriety settings. Solo AVs - EB Solo Bosses - Yes Team size - 8 level - +4 I AM SO OP!

  40. I'm going to break this down so you can help yourself. When it comes to making builds you first need to decide how you want to play it and that'll help you define your goals. If you want to build for all recharge and damage and let teams cover your survival, your priorities are going to be different than if you want to hover blast and be able to hold your own. The former focuses more on recharge bonuses and the later will focus more on defense bonuses. 2nd, defense comes in 2 flavors, defense based on damage type, like smashing/lethal/fire/cold etc... and defense based

  41. I agree with Wild Claw. The trick is, what's the difference between what the MCU did/does, and what TV refers to as spinoffs? I think it is that the MCU was the first movie group to successful attempt to do what TV spin-offs had been doing for decades. But if there is no clear separation, then several spinoff shows which swap characters from time to time, especially if they run concurrent might qualify, and not all are sci-fi. Several come to mind: The Dragnet universe: Dragnet, Adam-12, Emergency!, CHiPs, Quincy M. E., TV movie The Great Los Angeles Earthqu

  45. For the first snippet, I'm curious... why? The range "issue" is parroted a lot, but I rarely see a reason for it being a problem other than "none of the other range sets do it". It is the same kind of argument that includes snipes vs no snipes in the Sentinel set. Do Sentinels really need extended range when they have a defensive secondary? The range of Blaster attacks makes sense when one considers that buying additional time before being charged in melee is part of the mitigation gameplay. This isn't something Sentinels even need, or is it? As to the last comment, by "crappy" you mu

  46. Is the scale that different? That's too much. Just reducing the gap would help. It's 1.125 for ranged damage on Blasters (and melee damage for Scrappers), not 1.25. Let's not try to make the gap larger than it is.

  48. I'd say use the Beam Rifle set but make an alternate animation set where the beam comes out the eyes. The themes and expectations of an eye beam set sync up enough with Beam Rifle that I think the two sets wouldn't need to be separate. It would be the "easiest" path to having eye lasers?

  49. I sometimes consider the Blaster to be the Schrodinger's Cat of damage archetypes. It is the AT that is simultaneously able to survive really well while fighting with hover out of range and does the highest damage while being in melee range. The Blaster is also both alive and dead at the same time depending on how the Tanker is observing them.
