  1. That was a lot of fun! Managed to get the badge on 3 different characters on the runs.
  2. I have the names Ultrus and Able languishing at the moment, as I have been sidetracked with other concepts.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I considered /plant, but I have a Dark/Plant already, and I don't want to double up.
  4. Howdy folks, As the topic title says, I need help deciding whether to make a Blaster or a Dominator for PvP. Will be for mostly 1 on 1 and small team fights, as well as zone stuff when and if the opportunity presents itself. The choice for me is narrowed down to either a Psi/EM or Psi/Martial or Psi/Time for the blaster, or a Dark/Energy for the Dominator. Any help on the pros and cons of which to choose is definitely welcome, thanks.
  5. Well, the practice run went well!
  6. Heya, thanks. Yeah, I get the feeling Ninja is the red headed step child of the secondary family, but I made the character for a concept and had to have the Chromium Cutlass available... style over substance, I suppose! It does work, however, as I was able to add Babbage to my solo list yesterday, and adding the T3 Ageless did help greatly. I think though that I will eventually make different Ageless options depending on what I am planning to do. As far as an attack chain goes... eh... not so much. I did the Rikti Pylon test (without Lore pets) and it took like 4 minutes, which is not a great speed. I haven't yet figured out what will work best (within the constraints of the build) as this is my first end game blaster I have made. Right now I am kinda playing it by ear until I sort one out. I definitely see what you are saying about the slot in Aim vs an added slot to boost Stamina recovery. I will take a look at your suggestions later on today when I am on my computer that has Mids. Thanks for the advice! 🙂
  7. First post 50 test runs Friday night. The build wasn't complete, a few IOs missing so the defenses weren't fully done, also only had T3 Musculature Alpha, T1 Assault Hybrid, T3 Radial Storm Elemental Lore, T1 Ion Judgement, no Destiny or Interface to start with. Stared working on Accolades, finished the Invader one and was going around Sharkhead getting Lore and Explore badge (and killing Mooks for the Gangbuster badge) when I came across Scrapyard. It took a little bit, but I was able to solo him. Endurance was the drawback there, but I was able to get him down after chewing a bunch of blue candies. Finished off the High Pain Threshold accolade and was able to breeze through the St Martial zone event with the Longbow and the Mooks. Joined a kill everything +4 ITF after that, and had no issues, even during the ambushes, my health never dropped below half. Did have to eat some inspirations here and there, what with having no heal or stam recharger. But he seemed pretty effective. Leaving Cimm, I went to Croatoa from the Midnighter lodge, went around to grab the badges and managed to spawn Jack (and Eochai as well, it turned out, but on separate ends of their battle valley). Was able to solo him as well, though the Endurance was the main hindrance. After the fight I decided to make a T3 Radial Ageless Destiny. All in all a successful test today, I think. Though I am sure there are more efficient or effective ways to build the character.
  8. Hello folks, I am here looking for some advice, tips or general evaluation of my Beam Rifle/Ninja Training Blaster. Normally I play Tankers, Brutes and Scrappers, but I decided to level up a blaster and actually play it this time, and this is what I ended up with. I went with the Beam/Ninja combo entirely to fit the concept of a Steampunk Airship Pirate, so I needed some way to get the rifle and the cutlass, and this is what worked. Anyway, I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to building blasters... leveling up is easy, just get into groups and shoot stuff, but now trying to make a viable reliable end game build is a whole other case of bees. That said, here is what I -tried- to do: Soft Cap: Ranged, Smashing/Lethal, Energy and Negative Able to Hover and Fly Shoot things and do damage Not use Hasten (I try to avoid it whenever I can and build accordingly) Have a decent attack chain (I think i have too many attacks, but I couldn't decide what I didn't need 😛 ) Accomplish the above while using the Musculature Alpha and the Assault Hybrid Any suggestions or things I missed? Thanks in advance. I know that the defenses are around 2 points lower while in combat with Shinobi, but I kinda eyeballed that total. Also not sure which Destiny to go with. I am leaning towards Diamagnetic for the Interface for the extra protection granted by the to hit debuff.
  9. Silly question... when exporting a Mids build to post on these forums, which type of export do I choose? I know vBulletin was the original forum type back on Live, but which is the proper choice for here? Yes, I am a Luddite IRL. Thanks.
  10. I think the player driven difficulty of the game is just fine for the most part, everyone gets to play in their own comfort level, and that is one of the greatest draws of the game compared to most others out there. Also, it is a Superhero (Villain) game, and you should feel Super, especially as you advance. My solution to those that want more challenge (especially in group settings) would be a revamp of the character challenge settings, make it a pop up window with numerous options, like the Oroboros and TF difficulty/challenge settings, allowing the player to customize everything from difficulty level, team sizes, boss/eb/av spawns, incarnate powers, buffs/debuffs/limitations and so on... and have those choices be applied to any group they are the leader of, as if they were running a TF. People could customize their full personal difficulty as well as their team's difficulty, in every situation, from door missions to surface hunts. And those difficulty settings... beyond the standard +4/x8 AVs, etc... would perhaps give a percentage increase in rewards or reward drop chances, perhaps even a "Hard Mode" version of major badges akin to an MoTF badge, that would give slight benefit to playing at a higher difficulty. And would have zero impact on those that don't want to play at a "harder" level.
  11. Just need a version where the Glowie keeps saying, "Wow" like Owen Wilson... or "Hello there" Obi Wan style.
