    Extra Pet

    I've been insta-rezzed a few times when the someone fired off a heal right as a damage tick hit me sending me hit points below zero, and once the heal tick hit me, I was alive again without using a wakie or any other type of resurrection power. I wonder if the same thing happened here with the extra Solider in the screenshot. Maybe the Medic attempted to heal the Solider as it was being defeated, it died, and then resurrected as the heal it, but the game still allowed the summoning power to summon another Solider anyway thinking the original one was still defeated... Extra wild guess. I'm curious as to what happened as well.
  2. I'm happy knowing it's been acknowledged. Take your time; we all know you all are very busy, both with the game and with real life. Thank you!
  3. Ah, I see what you mean now.
  4. What is bugged with tar patch?
  5. I have noticed this happening when I'm lower than experience level 50, the team lead is lower combat level than I am, and I am being exemplar-ed.

    Pocket MM

    If using the specifically as a hands-off buff bot for this SF only and maybe as a pocket buff bot later on, a Demon/EA should fill that role nicely. Drop Faraday Cage in a good spot, target your main toon, and place Insulating Circuit on auto fire. If you're not concerned with damage output of mastermind pets, use the Goto command to place them inside Faraday Cage and order the the Hellfire Demonling and Demon and the Demon Prince to attack the AV, but keep the rest in Defensive/Goto. Masterminds and defenders receiver this click temporary power on the last mission: [Power of Black Scorpion] "Using the power absorbed from Black Scorpion, you can strip Reichsman's dimensional phasing, eliminating his ability to become immune to your teams effects." It is supposed to remove Reichsman's untouchable ability. I'm not sure if it really matters anymore, though.
  7. I have seen most knockback powers increase in magnitude as combat level changes, such as force bolt, power thrust, gale, etc. Seeing as how this power can be slotted with knockback enhancements, this may be more of a typo in the power description than a bug. However, with this being a snipe power, changing the modifier table for the knockback component to make this a permanent knockdown unless enhanced would be cool and gives players more options.
  8. I noticed something odd about the damage being dealt by Hail of Bullets on my Blaster yesterday. Here is the detailed power info: According to the power details, HoB will have a 60% chance for each tick of damage, and deal 70% of the damage in lethal and 30% of the remaining damage in lethal/fire/cold/toxic, depending on what ammunition type is being used. While running around testing powers and looking at my combat log, I noticed that HoB was only dealing the 30% portion of damage to targets. For example, I run up to a Possessed Scientist and use HoB while toxic ammunition is toggled on: the scientist takes 10 ticks of toxic damage, but zero no lethal. I try again with another target but this time with fire ammunition toggled on: The Possessed Scientist takes 8 ticks of Fire damage of equal strength to the toxic damage from the last test plus 3 additional ticks of -extra- fire damage due to the ammunition type chosen. I did one more test using standard ammunition with the same results as the previous two tests except in lethal damage. As far as I can tell, the combat logs seem to be telling the truth, as the HP loss from my targets are very minimal for the amount of damage that is supposed to be delivered from HoB, and the numbers above each target's head matches what I see in the combat log during HoB's animation. To run further tests, I made an AE map with nothing but level 50 AVs with no attack nor defensive powers as DPS dummies. With this method, the full HoB salvo could be logged instead of only the first two ticks before the targets were defeated if I had used low level mobs. I enabled chat logging, ran four tests of three casts using each ammunition type against a group of five targets, and copied/pasted each test into their own text file without any special formatting. They are attached below. For these tests, Hail of Bullets was slotted with 1 Accuracy and 3 Recharge SOs for all tests. Afterwards, I slotted 2 Damage SOs in the power as well to see if that would make any difference; the only change was how much each tick of damage was being dealt, which was 66% more... I didn't bother with logging this part. I only have a DP Blaster, so I am not sure if this issue is present with other ATs. HoB-Cryo.txt HoB-Incendiary.txt HoB-Standard.txt HoB-Toxic.txt
  9. I took your advice and went a step further. I made an AE map with nothing but level 50 AVs with no attack nor defensive powers as DPS dummies. With this method, the full HoB salvo can be logged instead of only the first two ticks before the targets are defeated. I enabled chat logging, ran four tests of three casts using each ammunition type against a group of five targets, and copied/pasted each test into their own text file without any special formatting. They are attached below. Edit for more info: Hail of Bullets was slotted with 1 Accuracy and 3 Recharge SOs for all tests. After posting this, I slotted 2 Damage SOs in the power as well to see if that would make any difference; the only change was how much each tick of damage was being dealt, which was 66% more... If this is a bug, I'm surprised no one else has mentioned it. I'll make a post in the bug report forums later on today. HoB-Cryo.txt HoB-Incendiary.txt HoB-Standard.txt HoB-Toxic.txt
  10. I am finally getting around to playing and planning a build for my DP/Time blaster, and I noticed something odd about the damage being dealt by Hail of Bullets. Here is the detailed power info: According to the details, HoB will have a 60% chance for each tick of damage, and deal 70% of the damage in lethal and 30% of the remaining damage in lethal/fire/cold/toxic, depending on what ammunition type is being used. While running around testing powers looking at my combat log, I noticed that HoB was only dealing the 30% portion of damage to targets. For example, I run up to a Possessed Scientist and use HoB while toxic ammunition is toggled on: the scientist takes 10 ticks of toxic damage, but zero no lethal. I try again with another target but this time with fire ammunition toggled on: The Possessed Scientist takes 8 ticks of Fire damage of equal strength to the toxic damage from the last test plus 3 additional ticks of -extra- fire damage due to the ammunition type chosen. I did one more test with standard ammunition, with the same results as the previous two tests except in lethal damage. As far as I can tell, the combat logs seem to be telling the truth, as the HP loss from my targets are very minimal for the amount of damage that is supposed to be delivered from HoB, and the numbers above each target's head matches what I see in the combat log. So my questions are: What am I doing wrong or not seeing? Is this a known bug? Is this a recently introduced issue with HoB? I would greatly appreciate anyone else with a DP/ Blaster (maybe other ATs as well) to test HoB on single mobs and report their findings and combat logs afterwards. Thanks in advanced!
  11. Is there is Wiki page or forum post that goes over the absorb mechanics in detail?
  12. Expedient Reinforcement seems to work just fine in my level 29 Bots/Dark MM. I even tested the range, they it works at 40 feet, like all the other pet IOs.
  13. Nice build! A few things I can offer: Even though you don't want procs in your your two big debuffs, I recommend frankenslotting at least Weaken with to-hit debuff IOs to maximize that debuff; that may help pet suitability a bit against hard targets. Mids doesn't calculate procs chances correctly in powers that utilize pseudo pets such as Posion's poison trap. The procs won't have a 90% chance to go off in that power, however, with that many procs slotted in the power, it should still be decent source of AoE damage. The recharge intensive pet IO description says that it has a 20 foot radius for the aura buff, but the radius is the same as the other unique Pet IOs, which is 40 feet. It's a typo that's been there a very long time. I verified this in game by standing 40 feet from my pets and still having all aura bonuses.
  14. With that many support toons, you should be defense hard capped most of the time from incarnate powers and leadership alone. Bots is a solid set; they're damage isn't high tier, but that doesn't matter for this event. They can support themselves pretty well without much babysitting. Ninjas can work, but realize you will be busy herding cats the entire time, and they even may stop rendering once they run off into oblivion. For this event, it's about fun first and foremost; pick a primary that seems fun to you and secondary that you can handle and is interesting to use. I'd avoid /FF unless you take a bunch of attacks to keep you busy during the event. With /Rad needing to use toggles to debuff, you may run into trouble trying to target mobs with so many pets around. You still have the heal and accelerate metabolism , along with personal attacks, so /Rad would still effective. /Thermal is another solid pick. I'm sure everyone will be resist capped, however, you also have two heals, two debuffs, forge, and personal attacks, if you pick any. Helpful note: To prepare for Friday, be sure to go ahead and reroute one of your AC ducts to blow directly into your PC case, or if you're on a laptop, clear out your deep freezer and set up a desk and chair inside.
  15. Is this supposed to be a denial of service attack brilliantly disguised as fun and exciting event?!? I'm in.
