  1. I can confirm that damage procs do indeed cause agro. And the timing is instant. I've actually DIED trying to mass hold/confuse a mob only for them to instantly turn and shoot before i was even done casting the power, let alone have it take effect! If anything, I feel like the agro should occur after the foes have taken the damage, not before.
  2. The only issue with that is, afaik, the missions are randomly assigned and aren't actually an "arc". I'm sure the HC team could make it one, but it would probably be low on their list of priorities. Still, here's hoping!
  3. Yeah, you're right, I shouldn't have responded so snarkily. My apologies!
  4. Nericus is 100% correct. It's a real PITA that this badge is the only one you can mess up and never get again. I would do as he suggests and ask a GM for help.
  5. 5099y_74c05... That's... not the most well-thought-out build. I mean, i GUESS you don't NEED a travel power. Or any enhancements in Health or Stamina. Or for your controls to not do much of anything if for some reason their procs don't go off. I DO like that it can get very close to the def softcap, and will concede that if you can get at least half the procs to go off when you need them, it'll be a beast. I'm sure it's working out Okay if you're already in your 40s with that build, but I feel like while you might feel like a powerhouse, some basic things might be a slog. But for pity's sake, you have a blank slot in Mind Over Body, if that's not being used, switch it over to Total Domination and 5-slot the Purple Hold set; that way Total Dom isn't total garbage AND you get better bonuses! Also, in-game, I don't think Terrify or Weaken resolve take Accurate ToHit debuff sets (The former shouldn't, but second SHOULD but currently doesn't). I played around with it. I have a build that gets to the Def Softcap (at least while Fade is active)... I left some blank slots in Dark Servant because I don't know for a fact if pets use procs or not.

  6. Hey, so, I dunno if this has already been reported, or if I'm doing something VERY wrong, but I was looking at a build with Kinetics (The Controller version specifically), and Mids seems to treat Siphon Power and Fulcrum Shifts' +dam bonuses as exponential (or something) instead of additive. For instance, it correctly states that one stack of Siphon Power adds +20% damage. But then if you pull the slider over to see two stacks, it reads 80%. A third stack reads 180%, and 4 stacks says 320% (For the record, it should be 20/40/60/80 respectively)! Fulcrum shift seems to operate under similar logic, maxing out at a ridiculous +2000% (yes, two thousand percent!) damage buff. It looks like there may be a decimal missing in the buff formula, since 10 stacks of FS should give +200% (well, more like 240 since it actually gives 2 separate buffs; +40% for the initial cast, then +20% per additional foe in range. Funny enough, the "Effects" tab seems to acknowledge the two buffs, but doesn't add them together in the totals, leaving the initial buff out). Also, there should probably be a second slider on FS, because it seems to think that a targeted foe is getting 10 stacks of debuff when one casting will give a character a buff for each foe in range, but it won't debuff each of them that badly, only -20% each, but that might be a bit much. In any case, keep up the good work, it's all appreciated, even if we run into a few bumps here and there!
  7. Haha, this sounds fun, I'll do my best to be there!
  8. Well, for one, there were 15 anniversary badges, not 6. S.C. managed to get The Lady Winter and Winter Lord badges when the devs made a bunch of GMs/AVs spawn to test server stability. The rest of us have to wait for the winter event! You can get two of the valentines event badges by re-running a level 50 villain arc which will allow you deliver (or Mis-deliver!) a valentine afterwards. Bug Hunter doesn't actually count towards your badge total. Only you can see it, if you get it. I've been using a copy of https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nCvYqENjH6YJgvCxA7xDYbV3iSWyzKoGfEEAhWfZWS4/edit?usp=sharing , but KeyboardKitsune's been working ona n even better badge tracker, so maybe check with them once they're done with that to double-check anything you've missed?
  9. First off, grats! Second, 100 story arcs (well, souvenirs) by level 10? I guess if you turned off XP and teamed with other people doing arcs, then yeah, totally doable. It looks like you already did some of that (I mean, you have Agent and other high-level content badges for cryin' out loud)!
  10. So I was going over my old Mind/Kin guide to freshen it up and re-post it for Homecoming, but I came across some notes on PvP that I wanted to make sure were still accurate. Specifically, I want to know if Travel Suppression and Diminishing Returns are still a thing. I've done some zone PvP, and haven't really noticed myself getting slowed down in combat (at least, not too much more so than in normal PvE), but I figured maybe that was because I was keeping myself siphon-speed boosted. I did notice that heals used in rapid succession weren't as effective, and I think I lost a few points of global recharge, but I don't think the drops were as harsh as they had been on Live. But again, I just wanted to be sure! And for a bonus question, any super general PvP tips that no good guide should be without?
  11. So... what's supposed to happen when a sleeping foe is placated? I mean, if they're asleep, how do you know they're NOT placated? You'd have to hit them to wake them first, BUT, hitting them breaks placate, also. You might have to go after an enemy group with healers (like Rikti or Cimeroreans) and try to sleep/placate a guy, then let the healer do their thing. The healing will wake up your foe, but won't break the placate. Or maybe go after a foe who is immune to sleep, like a zombie or robot, which is probably what the placate proc is for. Also, the placate probably only lasts 8 seconds, as with the other status effect procs, so you won't have a lot of time to note any change in behavior in a foe. All in all, even if it did work, it'd be pretty useless, and I'm not sure why they made that proc in the first place.
  12. Feedback on a few things: I miss the rock music when we get close to the ship. Can that be added back in? Someone claimed their team was exemp'd to level 44 (Team leader's level), even though everyone is supposed to get a bump to 50. Maybe look into that? Pi-in-the-sky suggestion: is there any way to make the drop ship actively hunt the players instead of flying to patrol points and just randomly shooting at whoever is nearby?
  13. I did the opposite of Ebil. I had an ATO that had 60 bids, 0 for sale, and all the sale prices were around 9-12 Million. I thought, sweet, I'll just post for 5, get the highest current bid, and probably walk away close to even for the price of the super pack I got it from! ...it sold for 6 mill >=( Less after fees, of course. I would ask what would possess people to bid half of the going rate for something, except it's pretty obvious why, now!
  14. Oh, yeah, I've been meaning to update that guide! Thanks for the mention/reminder! =D Still, I don't think I said too much more about TK than what's been said here already, other than in PvP, it no longer has an "infinite" duration, which was really it's main selling point for that type of content. Otherwise, a quick and dirty extra 3 points of magnitude can be really useful in some situations, and it can really shine in some late game/incarnate content where foe positioning is important.
