  1. So from what we've seen of Incarnate powers so far, they each seem to fall into certain categories of powers that players can already have: A couple Auto powers, a summon, a click-buff/heal, an AoE nuke, and a toggle. A type of power almost everyone gets, but isn't represented, is travel powers.....as well as single-target attacks. My idea is for "hyper" versions of each of the main travel powers, far stronger than normal, but only able to be kept up for a short time--and also enabling a powerful, single-target attack. I imagine it works like this: If you unlock the Flight power, you actually click it to turn it on, starting its cooldown of 5 minutes. So long as it's active, you have flight that has the speed and maneuverability of Afterburner with the combat ability of Flight....but it only lasts for a minute or two. On top of that however, until it runs out, you have access to a powerful single-target hit....that will immediately disable the Flight power upon use. So if you want you can activate this power just for the single-target attack, but it won't cycle back any faster overall than if you also made use of the Travel aspect. It might also be a cool idea to have it so that the attack builds power the longer you have the Travel power itself active, to add a strategy element, rather than just having people use it like a single-target Judgement power. I'm imagining the pools as follows: Ascension of Zeus: Augmented flight. Can be ended early for "Wrath of Zeus" melee attack, dealing massive Energy damage to a single target. Descent of Tartarus: Augmented Leap, combining the benefits of Super Jump, Acrobatics, and Combat Jumping. Can be ended early for "Grasp of Tartarus" melee attack, dealing massive Negative Energy damage to a single target. Speed of Hermes: Augmented Super Speed, which doesn't lose the Stealth, Defense, or Run Speed bonuses even when engaging with enemies. May also add a MINOR bonus to recharge speed, similar to the Quickness power in Super Reflexes. Can be ended early for "Wand of Hermes" melee attack, dealing massive Toxic damage to a single target (weakened in PVP). Manifestation of Tielekku: Augmented Teleport. Works like Jaunt, with no cooldown for the duration of 1 minute. Can be ended early for "Breath of Tielekku" melee attack, dealing massive Psychic damage to a single target.
  2. Ooh, that reminds me of the Proto Man build someone helped me make! Proto Man build.mxd
  3. IMO a good place to start would be Dark Astoria, since it's supposed to be Incarnate content anyway.
  4. Man, quitting time can't get here fast enough! So excited to check this out!
  5. So I have an idea for a couple powersets, but to really make them work, they kind of HAVE to be paired with eachother, or it would come off kind of weird. I've mentioned it before, but IMO we have a conceptual gap for characters who attack and defend with something OUTSIDE their body, ranging from a commander of a set of drones, to Magneto levitating bits of metal, to Doc Ock and his arms. I'm not really sure what this would be named, but I imagine that, similar to the VEATS, at a certain point it would diverge into either more of a ranged or melee focus. I'm just thinking of whether you're floating up bits of landscape to intercept a blast, then flinging them at your enemy, or have a barrier of some elemental power protecting you. Obviously this is well beyond what HC can do until things get hammered out with the legal teams and they get a LOT more support....but just thought it'd be a cool idea.
  6. Sweet, can't wait to get home and check this out! Thank you so much! So I take it this build focuses more on DPS then?
  7. Right now I'd think Savage Melee has the frenetic "feel" needed, though I've already made a suggestions on the forums about how they could piece together a "speed melee" set with powers from various other sets.
  8. So yeah, I know Energy Melee is in desperate need of tweaking (which may be coming soon, fingers crossed!), but I'm a slave to the thematic first, stats second. Funnily (or perhaps predictably) enough, that mega-build post someone was kind enough to put up had only ONE build for an Energy/Energy Brute! Thankfully it was at least a flier, which also went well for my concept. The build I've got now is pretty durable against anything other than Psi or Toxic, but doesn't have Taunt. As a result, the lack of any way of getting the attention of crowds reliably (no Punchvoke, only Pokevoke on one thing at a time) means that his only real usefulness is holding an AV's attention. It'd be NICE to deal some more damage, but I'd even settle for just being a decent quasi-tank with Taunt. That said, I'm wondering if I'm just going to end up needing an updated build if and when they finally tweak Energy Melee. Current build posted for reference. EDIT: Maybe it meant for Ball Lightning to be part of the attack chain, and not just a set mule?

  9. It's been mentioned in other threads, but to put Teleport more in line with other travel pools, it needs an attack power, a "lesser" version of itself to be used rapidly in combat (akin to what Experimentation gives), and the full version. I've also suggested letting at least one power take either Resistance or Defense IO sets, but folks disliked that idea.....
  10. I've actually already got this guy up to 50, and he's not bad for "tanking" AVs, but can't hold the attention of crowds......

  12. Eh, if you wanna get technical on it, I imagined that it could be like they rocketed up from the ground into the air.
  13. So I know animations are the most problematic part of new powers, but a guy can dream, right? Right now, the only REAL travel option for granite armor users is teleport....which doesn't really jive thematically IMO. Was thinking it'd be cool if there were a TP animation option of your character disappearing into the ground with a spray of dirt and rocks, then reappearing at the other location the same way, as if they had burrowed their way there incredibly quickly. Also, I haven't messed with Electric Armor yet, but I think it has a similar travel restriction? If so, could add the reverse, where you shoot up into the sky in a bolt of lightning, and come back down as one. Wishful thinking, I know.
  14. Not sure what options I'm supposed to select....
