  1. Can you share the data / raw input you're giving to the algorithm? I'm guessing it's a set of 3-dimensional coordinates for badges and plaques in each zone. I'd like to play around with a few implementations.
  2. Don’t underestimate the ranged single target attack. I like chaining Hold -> Fire Blast for some decent single target damage with containment. For illusion, you get Hold -> Spectral Wounds -> Fire Blast. The resistance armor is nice on my Fire/Dark controller since I can softcap with Fade, pool powers, and set bonuses. EDIT: You might have ignored Fire Blast because Gravity already has a single target attack chain. I stand by my comment in general, but it’s not important for a Gravity controller.
  3. I don’t have any Thermal or Cold characters. Are fresh level 1 toons allowed?
  4. I want to try PvP, especially 1v1 or small teams in the arena, but barriers to entry are too high. It seems like you need a really optimized build. I’m a casual player and I have a hard enough time affording purple/PvP/winter IO’s. I don’t want to invest the time into farming or playing the market to afford a good build when I might not even like PvP. If there was an active PvP community on the test server, I would join.
  5. I'm not interested in the meta game. As long as my toons can run the content I want to run, I don't care if someone can do it better. My Scrappers can take on most of the game, so I don't care if raw numbers put Brutes ahead of Scrappers. I don't like maintaining Fury. I like that I can put down CoH to take the dog out or talk with my fiancé, then jump right back in. Scrappers give me that, Brutes don't.
  6. I would never drop dwarf. I’ve seen builds here that do go without it, so I may be in the minority. Dwarf Form has so much utility. At some point, you’ll get slowed enough that Light Form drops before it’s recharged. You can wait out that time safely in Dwarf Form. Dwarf gives you another heal that can be activated quickly. Dwarf let’s you wait out status effects that get through Light Form. I use the taunt in Dwarf Form all the time. You can herd mobs into corners to maximize your AoEs, and you can taunt runners back to you. This was definitely not the point of your post, but I thought I’d give my two cents.
  7. Does Reactive Defenses’ Scaling Resist give +resistance at full health? The Homecoming wiki says it doesn’t. I could get some free resistance in some of my builds if some of the +res is always active.
  8. Great guide! Thank you for the hard work. Thanks to your last guide, I played through the high level hero content and had a blast. Do you have a recommended AT and/or power set combination to solo most of this content? I think you’d want something that gets a good attack chain early and has good sustain. I was thinking a /WP Brute.
  9. I could use some help with my triform PB build. I like the utility of having all three forms available. I'd prefer not to drop White Dwarf Flare. I don't know if it's optimal but I like having 3 PBAoE attacks. My usual strategy is to hit Inner Light then Dawn Strike -> Solar Flare -> White Dwarf Flare then either cycle through Nova AoEs or start my human form chain. In my current build my human form attack chain is Istrike -> Radiant Strike -> Gleaming Blast with Glinting Eye thrown in when I have time. I throw in Photon Seekers when they're up. My goals for the build are in decreasing importance: Perma Lightform and perma Hasten (or close enough to be essentially perma) Good Psi resist. I don't like playing a resistance based set with a total hole to Psi. I don't have to hit the 85% resistance cap, but I want a good base. Able to exemp down reasonably. I want nova and dwarf attacks to be slotted up enough to be usable. Optimal attack chains aren't necessary. Put in as much defense as I can after (1)-(3) are taken care of. I've tried to use the "G**d Damn PB" build as a base. I can't make this build much more expensive. I can't afford purple sets or lots of PvP IOs. I could probably get one purple set; I'm thinking Hecatomb in Istrike. I already have the ATOs and catalysts.

  10. Can you post text or a screenshot of the PB builds? I use a Mac, and Mids doesn't work on the latest operating system
  11. Mids won't work on Catalina. Wine isn't supported yet. It can't run in 64bit. Try doing something simple with wine like You'll get an error message
  12. Is it reliable enough? I considered Core on my Fire/Dark, but I didn't think it would be useful. Fire Cages sets up containment without the extra mez. You need the +1 mag for bosses, but the proc is random so you are just as likely to double up on minions and lieutenants.
  13. I love DM, but I have a level 50 DM/Shield. I want to try a new primary.
  14. I'm between War Mace and Rad Melee. I've never played a scrapper with a damage aura (let alone two damage auras if I take radiaition), do enemies run from you? Does /bio have a way to keep them taunted?
