  1. I, too, am grateful. I still remember when a work teammate told me Homecoming existed. I believe I frightened about 20 nearby coworkers in my outcry of shock and excitement. I agree, creativity is hard. I've killed several character projects, even 30 levels in, because I couldn't get all the components to feel cohesive. But we've got a forum full of friendly helps including both name ideas and costume design. Its a better choice than copying a trademarked property. As I mentioned in the OP, I've no problems with homage characters should there be enough differences that there

  2. nature/water defender and never look back. Hands down one of the best defenders ever. Nigh unkillable and has a great mix of buffs (for you and the team) and debuffs (-regen, -res, -tohit and -dmg) and you have 2 heals, 3 if you also taking lifegiving spores. With the buffs you get decent resists, heal over time and end discount and you can also achieve melee and ranged softcapepd defenses with set bonuses. Look at these stats! I'm sure you can choose whatever attack set you want but I chose water and don't regret it one bit. Regards, Dave

  3. There's a popular MMOG in Praetoria named... appropriately enough... Guardians of Praetoria. What do you think it is? People playing members of Power Division protecting Praetoria? A medieval fantasy MMOG? Something else entirely? Do you think that it was brought over to Primal Earth when Praetorian Earth was evacuated? Is Jonny playing Guardians of Praetoria in Kallisti Wharf today? :D

  5. Found this on my own today when I did a search on YouTube for how many new Homecoming videos posted on YouTube over the weekend. Not as many as I'd hoped, but your's was front and center in the filtering by date. Really wonderful work, Dacy!

  6. After some time trying to figure out what was better but coming up empty (Bopper I ain't) I decided to go for the true-d and tried: testing. What is better? - Five Hectacomb with purple Hold damage proc. This is the lowest damage option at 540, but the global recharge and accuracy are good and also the recharge baked in means more uses of FT since the rotation can go down to FT, Ice Sword, Frost with a 0.5 second gap. - Frankenslotted Freezing Touch with no recharge (purple damage/endurance). Biggo damage increase. 700 damage. Booyah. A row of 90% chance procs. Dow

  10. I almost worry if it's people intentionally attempting to undermine the efforts of the streamers by making the videos contain run-by copyright violations. Except, well, the Homecoming Team has already explained why that's not going to punish the streamers, and really anyone who makes a copyright violation character is only going to get their own account actioned. . . . buuut . . . I've recently been reminded to never underestimate the drive of someone's pettiness in their efforts to ruin something for others. Report them. If they're honest mistakes, I trust the GMs to

  11. I hate to even bring this up, but I've seen a host of names of other properties in game this weekend. I'm not talking homages, where there's subtlety but a different name and enough of a different look and build that it doesn't rip off the trademark. I'm talking flat out copying the name, and using similar look and build. Am I correct in assuming the rules have not changed, and this is still not acceptable?

  12. They dropped level requirements from hazard zones because people were doing arcs with sk'd players, only to run into a wall when the next mission happened to be in a hazard zone with too high of a requirement for the sidekick. I don't think normal arcs will give you a door in RWZ, so I don't think it wouldn't be an issue if it were locked to 35+.

  13. Defenders tend to be the weakest solo characters. I'm assuming you are typing about helping a team to fight AVs and not trying to fight them solo. If you are trying to build a Defender as a damage dealer, then you should be looking at other archetypes. There are a couple of different types of defenders. Like a blapper, building a defender as a damage dealer is really pushing against the archetypes strength. Depending on the power sets and powers from those sets chosen, defenders can ...

  14. I like the idea of making LGTF 45+ again (hell, I still want the RWZ to go back to level locked to 35+). Not every single piece of content needs to be accessible to every damned level.

  17. Sorry to get so off track from the original topic, but I couldn't think of anything that was still appropriate to it, and considering so much of this thread circled around to "generational gaps," I thought I'd share something in that vein which might help broaden some perspectives. You're welcome, @KauaiJim. It's nice to know it was appreciated. Likewise, I don't always agree with Michael's personal views or conclusions when he expresses them in some videos, but facts are facts. And the more information our little ape brains can absorb, the more analysis and synthesis of new ideas we can

  19. This is actually quite an interesting video. A lot to digest but very informative. He also presents everything with a touch of humor so extra points for that. I'm not mentioning this to perpetuate the already rather exhausted 'discussion' in this thread - rather instead it is something fascinating and perhaps worthy of 20~ minutes of your time if you just like learning things, which I do. In fact I see this guy has a bunch of videos that look interesting to me. I have no idea if I agree with him on everything (maybe, maybe not) but he certainly presents the information in a fun way and wi

  21. I have just got my first character ever to level 50 on my own. It's a Street Justice/Regen Brute, and I have found it a lot of fun to play over the last year. But my opinion isn't based on years of experience. I like having to manage the active clicks. I sometimes wished I got a little more time to react, especially if you have something else queued up first. I struggle most with big alpha attacks at the start of a combat, either because I jump into a group, or a boss with a big opener. Regen has a strong "you're fine, oh now you're (almost) dead"

  24. Time/DP is one of those sets that lots of peeps love and with good reason. TA/DP is a wonderful combo also. Remember you can cut the redraw out of the animation in the creator now so it becomes a non issue (looks a little funky though). remember with TA/ you will do a lot of all TA powers up front and then unload with blast sets. So either way is doable.

  33. No. It had apparently been shelved when the game was still in Paragon's hands, due to a combination of lack of commercial entity interest and expiration of licensing agreements with the company who provided something (not sure if it was part of the code, or the servers on which ads were stored, or something else). And the relevant bits have been removed, so it can't just be turned back on. That's apparently why the billboards which used to display ads are now showing in-game joke ads, like ZomBCare.

  34. If anything, them trying to be seen on a stream just makes it more likely for them to get in trouble. But, yeah, as the others have said - just report and move on, the GM team will handle it accordingly if there is a violation.

  38. I read this whole thing before posting. 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.

  42. Just a friendly reminder not to get too - as Arbegla put it - 'in the weeds' in this discussion. For my part, this sounds like a nice little tweak. 'They/them' is generally considered the acceptable gender-neutral pronoun and would be more inclusive to our community! Not ever tanker is a dude, after all!

  45. Not in this sticky, and not in a sense that I *think* you may be asking. However, there are a number of older threads about the value of the Epic/Patron pools in this sub forum. I'll summarize as best I can and just reduce that clutter into this thread through... 1) Most of the pool choices allow for some kind of movement control (e.g., AoE Immobilize, slows, etc.) with the exception of Psi Mastery which has Mass Hypnosis (useful on some Task Forces). 2) Not all melee attacks are created equal, but they generally are good to have if you can fit them into your build.

  46. The rotation is only clunky at low recharge. Boot up the build mentioned above, with 170%+ recharge... Kitted for straight murder. The attack chain is so fast it will mow everything down and run on to the next group before other toons can wind up their "aoe" attacks. It's a blender. A few people in the thread have tried it, it's very fun. The attack chains are posted in the build. Let me know if you want to see Paper Lotus in action on excelsior.

  48. If I ever clear some projects off my plate, another one I want to do is to get a team together to collect all the lore bits we can about the various in-game companies, stores, restaurants, et cetera to help flesh out the Wiki with greater detail. Get some screenshots and the like. Maybe a list of all the City of Gyros or El Super Mexicanos. All that great stuff!
