  1. First Ward is it's own isolated area. Power Loyalists and Crusader Resistance care nothing for the survivors, sometimes even attacking them. This makes the survivors feel like they can't reach out to either group. Why try to go back to Preatoria when it's armies fire at you? Why try to go and liberate Praetoria when the Resistance fires at you and competes with your for resources? Sure, Responsibility Loyalists and Warden Resistance members would probably work with the survivors, but those factions also have less reason to ever leave Praetoria. Responsibility Loyalists are trying to do their job in the city, Warden Resistance are largely civilians without clearance to leave. And so the survivors stand alone. Some lived in First Ward, their knowledge of what really happened is a danger to the regime, so there is no saving them. Some escaped Preatoria, some were exiled, it's meant to be a death sentence. They don't belong to either side, they are merely survivors.
  2. Which toggles are you running? Do you have a screen shot of MIDS and your in game stats to try and nail down what happened?
  3. Early in, you probably want to use nova form. I don't particularly enjoy nova form, but at low levels with no bonuses the extra accuracy (and damage) will make things so much smoother. Once you have some slotting, you can drop nova form, or just keep it for the flight. Dwarf is going to be your mez protection, and you can activate it while mezzed. Eventually, pure human more than doable, it's great! But your human toggles fall off in forms, not having the forms initially is 'extra hard mode'. If you go into dwarf, your shields fall off, so when you drop dwarf, you need to reactivate every toggle. So while leveling and using forms, the toggles are less good. I highly recommend you initially level with forms, then respec into human only. As soon as you can afford to slot up the human toggles. That's not to say you can't level human only, it's just a much longer road, and it's a much steeper uphill climb.
  4. I hope the video rule only applies to publicly listed videos. To ban unlisted videos from being shared on the forum itself could cause many issues within the community in terms of guides.
  5. "PPD, T.E.S.T. and Powers Division is going" should be "are going". 2nd mission from Calvin Scott, mission name The Turning Point.
  6. I had thought of a new suggestion before I remembered I has suggested it MONTHS ago. This still needs to happen!
  7. Hey all. So path auras are pretty neat, but very few people use them. Part of the reason for me at least, is because there's no combat only option for them. There's only constant and movement only. So... simple enough suggestion, (the fix may be more complicated in practice, I don't know the code) but a combat only option would be nice.
  8. I'm leveling a Warshade and got up to the mission "Run program on database" from Shadowstar's level 10 arc. I know mission doors can be semi-random, but I'm supposed to be entering a council base and the mission door was Skyway City's Architect Entertainment's VR entrance.
  9. I was thinking of doing dark with Mercs for all the -to hit on enemies and healing. I was also considering Demon/Storm, Ninja/Time and Thugs/Nature.
  10. What's a "run"? Are you talking about taking down a Pylon? I'd like to eventually have a 50 of each mastermind primary. Got a Beasts/Cold at 50. A Bots/Poison at 37 and Necro/Traps at 22. I've really been holding back on making the Mercs because.... well yeah, I've never really heard anything positive about them. Even Ninja I heard good things about if you can keep them alive. Better people than I will have some form of idea on what they need to work.
  11. I was doing the Praetorian arcs in Ouro and not a single enemy group (so far) had Qs or Voids. It made perfect sense if course, Preatoria didn't encounter Kheldians, but I agree it was a breath of fresh air.

    Is EM Broken?

    I still recommend opening with assassin's strike when solo/leveling. The fear effect it causes is nice mitigation if you're still working on defenses. The AS taking endurance but not activating is a lag issue. On your screen you've stopped, and to your system you're standing still and ready to attack. The server on the other hand, needs to acknowledge you stopped first and that may happen just after you hit the AS button. In groups however, or if you don't need the mitigation from the fear, don't AS from hide. Use your next highest hitting move or your target will be dead before AS winds up. Once you have the ATO proc, this will matter more. As you'll want AS off cooldown in combat for the hide proc to trigger for even more crits.
  13. Peacebringers get the flight powers baseline. My understanding is aside from some extra VFX, Energy flight is supposed to be identical to Flight and Combat Flight is supposed to be identical to hover. These days, Hover has a pose that is different from flight, although at launch they use to share the same pose. Leaning forward to fly as such low speeds was seen as... odd, so it was eventually changed into the upright position we have today. Combat Flight though, never got to share this change. It's as slow as hover, but you lean forward and glow a lot. I'd just really like Combat Flight to get Hover's upright position. -McJigg
  14. I recently went through Ouroborus to finish every 1-20 Praetoria mission for the accolade. However for Collapsing Support (Neutropolis Crusader, Ch. 4) - 18.48 under the Keeper of the Peace level band (levels 20-24) I hit a speed bump. You are brought down to level 20, but no matter how I set my notoriety, Maelstrom spawns as a level 24 boss. Even if set to -1/x1. This is also a Single Player only mission, so you can't being anyone else with you for help. In full disclosure, I did eventually manage to beat him, being a mastermind has it's perks. But I don't see many other ATs being able to handle that as this level.
  15. Been using Ice Armor on my stalker with the minimal FX option, absolutely loving it. Liked the set enough to wonder if the blockyness would really have been that bad. Fought a doppelganger who had the full block armor, and.... Yeah, no way I'd have been able to stomach it.
