  1. People often complain that vahzilok are overpowered at low levels. They are not. You just have to know how to fight them, particularly prioritizing which to attack and cc. Experienced players know this and can defeat them without difficulty. The cadavers are resistant to several types of cc but they are easy to knockback and more importantly to slow. They move slowly, so you can use your powers to keep them from reaching you. What works great against them are the various rains that do damage and slow. Also aoe knockbacks like storm has with its wind powers like gale. And stu

  2. Those Romans are as fast as lightning. @Bill Z Bubba says they're not very frightening. @Cobalt Arachne replied with expert timing. Wait, are we singing the Carl Douglas version or the Tom Jones version? Because if we're using the Tom Jones version, I can add a couple more names in the next bit. Then @BillyMailman Dropped a numbers bomb, And @Bopper jumped on in And moved the thread along. I know. It's a gift. No applause, just throw money. Ow. OW. I said money, not nickels! OW! STOP!

  3. For my latest character, I wanted to attempt a minimalistic look with a strong contrast, in this case white against black / light against dark. Dr. Nightlight is the result, an energy/energy sentinel. I've set his powers all to nearly pure white (I found the palest gold as a secondary color gave a richer light feeling). He's good in lower lighting, but he really shines (pun intended) in those dark Arachnos base missions. I'm really hoping to see him in Praetorian underground missions in the near future.

  5. Another of my Victorian era villains. This costume inspired by @First Player's The Duke, from back on page 146 of this thread. Mordrogar. (A possible ancestor of Duke Mordrogar, one of the heads of the Hellions. Or maybe it's just a cheap claim to help the "Duke" in Hellion circles.) A European aristocrat and somewhat of a megalomaniac, he is the leader of Novus Ordo Mundi, a confederation of villains. Mordrogar has allied with another NOM member, Snake Oil, to give him super powers. Super Strength/Bio Armor (minimal effects) Brute.

  6. Finally! 163 pages is a lot to look through! But I can finally post a few pics. Some original, some inspired by a few of the really great costumes you all have shown us. First up is Rail Baron. He's inspired by the Living Locomotive I saw 30 or 40 pages ago. (Sorry, I forget whose design that was.) Rail Baron is a Victorian era villain who finds himself in the modern world. He's a train themed power armor guy and inventor. Invulnerability/Dark Melee Tanker.

  7. Hello everyone and thank you ahead of time to anyone taking the time to read this idea or share their thoughts on the subject. I'll just get right to it: Local chat is kind of a pita for RP..... it's often joked about as being "yelling distance" and not really "local distance" due to the fact the radius is 100 in game feet. For anyone not familiar with this I've posted photo's for reference below. Basically what I would like to suggest is adding another chat channel to the game so that it is possible to have a conversation without feeling like you're screaming across a room when you speak

  8. ….no this isn’t click bait, I swear! I thought I’d start a thread for those inquiring forum goers who frequently ask about where things have been and where they are at regarding 'the talks.' Our awesome Homecoming (HC) volunteers push out updates every so often as they can (mostly from @Jimmy), but they are a bit scattered over the landscape of these forums. So that being said, below is what I could dig up (happy to make edits if someone see a mistake!). I will provide a snippet and a direct link to the post instead of adding them as quotes in order for folks to see the source material. I adde

  11. tl;dr: I've hidden over 5 1/2 bn of inf on bids on Training Origin enhancements in the Auction House. Come and get them! EDIT (five days in) Current status available outstanding (893mm): 13 / 50 -- 1mm bids 13 / 50 -- 10mm bids 7 / 50 -- 100mm bids So, I had a hankering for TOs, since they don't drop anymore and I was nostalgic. So I bought all of them available in the AH. But that wasn't enough, not by a long shot! I have put a total of 150 bids on TOs in the marketplace. They were allocated randomly across the 25 available typ

  12. It does get worse than that. Such as when you search for some bit of information. Up comes an informative post, page, article, something. Just what you're looking for. And then you realize you wrote it. (I've had this happen with material I wrote over 30 years ago... 😛 )

  13. I'm responding to this post without reading any subsequent replies. I'll give you as much transparency as I feel is safe and appropriate. You get whimsical answers because sometimes it is a costly mistake to commit to something that ends up completely not working and has to be tabled. When I posted my first well thought out pitch for improving this game, I settled on trying to find a way to ameliorate the effects of Incarnates and their abilities WITHOUT nerfing destiny, lore, etc. My suggestion settled on a system that would identify player progress and ada

I'll post his nemesis, Count Nero, soon as well. Spider Smasher, Street Justice/Invulnerability Scrapper, Indomitable. (And yes, he sets the Spider Smasher badge title.)

  18. The other night some of us on a team were talking about legacy characters after I mentioned that I had created an aged-up version of one of my teen heroes from back in the day. He was 16 then and 28 now, so Mighty Lad became Mighty-Man. (I retconned the dates a bit.) Mighty Lad: https://www.deviantart.com/dashmccool/art/Mighty-Lad-94031428 https://ibb.co/MkLysTK https://ibb.co/wwzD7rr Someone else mentioned that the character they were playing was the kid of their original toon from Live, and I wanted to do that, too.

  27. This was a bug fix in the last patch to rectify that it was temporarily disabled previously due to it being the primary suspect in a severe performance problem on the third mission of the Imperious Task Force. Later, the actual culprit was identified and fixed on that map, and it had nothing to due with Energized Shield (now Roman Armor), so the power was re-added and the group's difficulty restored to what it had always been for the entire duration of its existence on the live servers. The only thing done was the content being returned to the original difficulty. You can see the power i

  28. Here's a favorite costume idea I had, I bounced it between a few ideas and nearly bounced it again yesterday before re-discovering the joys of assassination sneakyboy heroics. Its Nightlight! Once he was afraid of the dark, now the darkness is afraid of him! Now to wait and see if we ever get longer guy hair options.

  30. Protip for people who take it: the Panacea proc works in it, as in it can potentially heal/restore endurance to anyone within the aura. Sure, everyone just drops Panacea into Health, but in Triage Beacon it can help make the power a little more effective. Also works in Spirit Tree, Soothing Aura, and Lifegiving Spores.

  31. It started with the idea of a character who transforms from a little girl to a massive hulk of a angry father named, "I'll Tell My Daddy" (btw, the name is open) but the necessary costume transformation didn't really thrill me. So my mind wandered and I kinda figured the name would be taken but lo and behold, it wasn't. . . . Allow me to present American Beef: AmericanBeef.mp4 I really don't need another melee character but I kinda want to play him.

  32. Here's a new one I made whose look I really love, despite being your basic vampiress. I figure she's cold all the time so she can rock the full leather suit. It's difficult to get a good shot of it, though, being all black. Lady Vampyre. https://ibb.co/F5d3NbQ https://ibb.co/QkL5xzW And look who I ran into on Talos Island tonight: https://ibb.co/WDt6sgR

  33. HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER This was one of my 50s back on live (not quite there yet this time around), a Street Justice/Willpower brute -- at the time she was called "Girl-Fight," but nowadays that name feels a little... icky. So instead she goes by the Knockout Artist.

  34. There's some stuff coming to beta fairly soon. The big problem with adding "loot" is that there's already a lot of power creep in the game, and adding more of that is not a recipe for a healthy game unless there's something to do with that higher power level. That's why a lot of our focus has been on getting the content creation pipeline flowing, so that there is a steady stream of fresh missions, task forces, etc. to lessen the repetitiveness.

  40. I've been roused from my den of evil. 👀 People who like a challenge and feel that the current the endgame has become too homogenized are in for lots of good news and things that will kill their Tier 4 incarnates and 50+5 IO builds. That being said people who like things right where they are now shouldn't be worried either. We're dedicated to ensuring that everyone can enjoy this game the way they like moving forward, there will be options to move the difficulty ceiling up for those who are looking for it, but the floor where it exists isn't moving.

PWiki was an amazing resource for the game back when it was live, and I'm absolutely humbled by the support that HCWiki has gotten since I started the project, and will ALWAYS be thankful for the base of PWiki as its starting point, and our awesome contributors that help make the new wiki what it is every day. But EVERY time I've seen you comment on the wiki it is to attack it as "out of date" or "out right wrong", entirely discounting the fact that it is CONSTANTLY being updated by the small handful of people who do so.

  45. This was the policy we released two years ago, and it continues to be the policy we intend to implement Soon™. (Though you may well want to think of it as One of These Days™ at this point. It requires someone to actually code the system and we have, frankly, higher priorities than this.) Now, please stop attacking each other.
