  1. 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.

  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. I love DM, but I have a level 50 DM/Shield. I want to try a new primary.
  6. 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?
  7. I want to roll a /bio scrapper. I usually see Titan Weapons/Bio recommended, but I’m not a fan of TW. I don’t like the momentum mechanic. I like to play my Scrappers without thinking too much, and I don’t like managing momentum (or Fury for that matter). I’m thinking of rolling a Fire/Bio but it doesn’t seem very synergistic. Does anyone have a pairing to recommend?
  8. Do you want to play a more offensive controller to match a blaster playstyle? Fire is a good choice. You sacrifice some (but not all that much) control for an awesome PBAoE damage toggle. I will plug my own Fire/Dark build. You can get softcapped defenses and hardcapped S/L resists by investing into recharge. You might also consider a "splattroller" which is a controller which trades hard control (holds and stuns) for general chaos. I think these are really fun to play. Plant/Storm is a powerful, easy to use combo. I personally don't enjoy Earth, Ice, and Mind because they're high control, low damage. Instead I prefer higher damage, lower control like Fire, Plant, and Illusion. I think Dark and Gravity are in there too, but I've never played either.
  9. Can we please alphabetize the archetypes? The current ordering doesn't make sense and it's hard to find a specific forum. I know this is a very small issue, but it's such an easy fix.
  10. I moved to Indy a week ago. I don't think I'll be able to make the meet and greet, but I would appreciate any suggestions about the city from locals. I'm still trying to find my bearings in Indy. Feel free to respond here or DM me or if you feel more comfortable.
  11. Clarion is nice. Perma mez protection is hard to beat. I'm surprised you have end problems. WIth perma soul absorption I don't worry about end. It's even better with Agility as my alpha slot. My endurance to vanishes if I let soul absorption lapse, though.
  12. Do you need any set recharge set bonuses? If so, both Expedient reinforcements and Cloud Senses give +5% recharge with 4 slots. Slot Dark Servant if you need more protection or slot Imps if you need more damage. If you're good on set bonuses, I'd split the difference. They're both great powers. Maybe try to steal some slots from another power. I think they're both worth investing 5-6 slots. If you're dead-set on one or the other, decide if you want more control or more damage.
  13. It is absurd how tough /dark can get. You get Scrapper resists and defense and regeneration and your controls prevent damage. Dark Servant is a great power. It's probably the most useful power in Dark after Fade and Soul Absorption. I six slot it. I put in 4 Cloud senses for the 5% recharge time, making sure to slot the Negative Damage proc. Then I do the Touch of Nitctus negative energy damage proc and Trap of the Hunter lethal damgae proc. With those sets, Dark Servant puts out a nice ToHit debuff and can do some damage.
  14. I played CoH in my teens. I joined CoH pretty early. I remember when agro caps and ED were added, whenever that was. I stop and started a few times, and I wasn't active in 2012 when the game was shut down. I went from nerdy teenager to nerdy adult. I got a bachelors degree and PhD. I join the working world as a "real adult" in a week. I'm glad CoH wasn't around when I was in grad school. It came out right as I was submitting my dissertation and it took up way too much of my time.
