  1. It's still there. Meant to post earlier, AE was disrupted from the server issues earlier today and took a bit to fully come back online. @RialVestro708.5 is in the title, the arc id is something like 58. For what ever reason my brain refuses to remember the arc id but completely holds onto the title.
  2. I can't believe I'm going to say this. I'm 100% against lowering brute damage caps.
  3. Thank you for the reply, I missed the thread about them being blocked although I saw the one about no copyright characters. The specific one I was looking for was fire ants so it looks like a mass blocking took place.
  4. Seems a few arcs are missing. Accident or Intentional? Was also brought to my attention this could have been removed by the creator. However, as their were various '708' arcs with slightly different things in the name from different authors, for them all to be missing seems to be suspect.
  5. Please, if this were true then in PVP zones powers would function exactly the same as they do in PVE zones. But oh look, they don't! They even do different amounts of dmg/res/rechg! And OH LOOK there is a specific set of PVP IOs that grant two different types of bonuses depending on which zone they are in!!!! Your statement is wildly inaccurate. For it to be accurate, things would have to function exactly the same in both sets of zones. Exactly. Honestly, the best thing that could ever happen to this game is to roll back to before PVP, but since that couldn't happen without pulling a lot of spaghetti, the absolute best thing that can happen is a segregation of changes based on zones. Complete segregation. Power causing issues in PVP zones, that change better never effect the PVE side of the game. Then everyone is happy. PVPers get to continue on doing what they want, PVE doesn't every have to worry about it messing with ACTUAL FUNDAMENTAL GAMEPLAY. Don't forget, this game didn't start with PVP, it was added much later, as such it should not effect what was here before it.
  6. Yeah, I'm a history minor. I hate revisionist history. It doesn't matter if it's ugly, stick to the truth about how things went down, not how you want to remember through rose colored glasses.
  7. You also forgot Intangibility - 'all of them being changed from a toggle to a click' Toggle dropping on tanks/scrappers/brutes/stalkers - 'omg we can't get past their defenses now that IOs are here' And for those of you refuting his claims. You're wrong. ED was done for two reasons, first because pvpers complained about not being able to damage resist based toons because 'omg the six slotted toggles', it was done secondly because IOs were coming GDN was done for two reasons, first because pvpers couldn't hit SR Scrappers. Second because IOs were coming. Travel Power Suppression was implemented to prevent jousting because pvpers couldn't stand blasters/stalkers coming through and whacking them on the way through and not being to melee back. Regen was originally nerfed because one player made a claim, posi insisted it couldn't be done, player told posi how wrong he was, posi one day teleported the player to a hidden cave and spawned monsters for the player who was on a claws/regen scrapper, posi found out real quick how wrong he was. The next regen nerf was absolutely pvpers complaining about not being able to out DPS them. And now, pvpers have complained about the enterbasefrompasscode. Even if it was a 'mistake' to have it turned on, it was a low priority fix until the pvpers whined. I was on the original forums when this went down, I had a job that afforded me the opportunity to lurk the forums for 8 hours a day. I watched it happen. This is not revisionist history, this is accurate, stop trying to convince people otherwise. And you know what the worst part is, posi and every original dev on the boards claimed, promised, and swore that nothing in PVE would ever be changed because of PVP. And they LIED. Just like they lied about tanks getting a new mechanic that allowed them gain damage bonus by being attacked and attacking. Even though it was a year long discussion thread in the tank forums, input and discussion. And Promises were made there to, that tanks would be getting this wonderful new mechanic. Right up until they needed to drive sales for, you guessed it, COV. PVPers need to own up to the changes they have caused to happen to the PVE game.
  8. This was uncalled for. An attempt was made to get people to relax and chill for a moment to consider information given and you come in here with this?? You owe Myr an apology.
  9. Brutes will not be nerfed. End of Story. Having said that, honestly, the only change that should be made to brutes at all is swapping the auto-hit Taunt with Provoke. That's it. One Simple Swap. Course, then tankers don't need to be changed at all I don't think. That one power swap would like cause a nice equilibrium between tanks and brutes.
  10. I see all you guys worried about losing bruising. But please try to understand, only like the 35 of us in this thread discussing it actually even knows it exists. Take a poll in the discord, most people have no idea. And on top of that, less than the 35 of us in thisbtjread acticely used the t1 to apply bruising because using a t1 doesn't create an optimal attack chain even with its bruising factored in. Even if you are one of the few that actively used bruising, realize that your experience speaks for a very very small subset of the population. And only slightly larger is the subset that would use bruising on hard targets like AVs because mobs die to quick. Your lucky to get foot stomp off before the blasters roflmao the mobs.
  11. The Problem here is that people are confusing the taunt power with the taunt aggro cap. I get the feeling after rereading some of these contacts people think taunt (the click power in their secondary) hit 17 mobs.
  12. If I can make a few slotting suggestions, use siphon life as an attack, it does so much damage. The heal is just a bonus. Here is my take on a stone/dark. You won't be running all your armors all the time, so your end will vary. Turn them on as needed, if your fighting non fire enemies, do you really need to be running fire? Also, this build has three oh crap buttons, granite/archmage/melee core. Use them as needed. Rooted also essentially turns you into a regen tank. So I beefed it up some. Might be some slotting ideas in there you can use.

  13. Yeah, I'm curious, while a tank should never be able to put a dent in AV health, surviving, even with work on it, should always be possible. And Stone/Dark should survive well having one of the best heals in the game in siphon life and having one of the best build up in the game in Earth's Embrace.
