  1. So far I have this toon at 40, and he's actually pretty good. He's got a lot of AOE damage output, and nukes single targets pretty well. He's mostly set with standard IOs, and I'm working in the sets as I can get them without dumping a ton of inf into him from another toon. So far so fun.
  2. Thanks folks! I'm going to play around with these a bit and see what pans out. This is going to be fun :)
  3. Hi everyone. I have a stupid amount of time on my hands, and had an experiment I wanted to try out. I basically never see anyone using fire powers with a stalker, so I thought I'd give it a shot. My goal is to make a viable fire/fire stalker. I'm pretty terrible with making Mids builds from scratch (the global name is no accident), so I tried looking for builds to use as a starting point to elaborate on. I found none. So I thought maybe I'd compare with a scrapper build along similar lines, and had similar results. I know the stalker set is pretty different because of hide being included, and the healing toggle existing. I know I'll have to worry about kb/kd like I would with other fiery aura types. What I was hoping was that someone might be willing to help give me a starting point with a build for me to bat around a bit, and I could make adjustments and test things and see how it goes. I don't expect it to be the toughest most amazing character ever, but I'd like to give a shot and see how well I can do with it. When I see underused build types, it feeds my desire to try to play one and do well with it. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.
  4. I really appreciate that. I think this is probably a really good place to start with her, while she's leveling along the way. All of the sets and stuff can get pretty confusing, especially with her being so new to the game. Long term, I intend to help with influence and such to help her flesh things out some. If you do have the inclination, a build with sets worked in would be appreciated. No rush or anything, she's still in the late teens on the build atm. I intend to help her with a respec and slotting some base IOs once we make our way to 22. Thanks!
  5. Hi folks. I have a friend that is starting the game right now. She's not only never played CoH before, but never played an MMO (or likely any PC game) before, either. She's been looking for some build advice from me, as I've been playing the game for a long time. Unfortunately I am not great with figuring out builds, and I tend to seek out existing builds for the combination I'm running, and make a few tweaks here and there. I want to be able to offer some help, but I'm not really up to the task. I was hoping that someone with a better brain for such things might be willing to help me help her. She's playing a Sonic attack/Rad corrupter. She has a lot of trouble with navigation, so I would like to work in the flight pool for her, and I think stealth of some kind is probably a good idea (she tends to kind of bump into mobs that she can't see until it's too late). Also, her awareness when it comes to knockback isn't the greatest. So either working a kb to kd enh in or skipping shockwave entirely would be a good idea. At the moment she's just playing the character with her boyfriend and I, but we will eventually be working into running some of the lower TFs and stuff when it seems she's ready for that kind of thing. We're not looking to maker her uber, we just want her to feel like she's able to contribute and that her build isn't broken. So maybe valuing the state of her endurance and survivability over damage output would make sense for her. I would really appreciate any help you could offer. She has a lot of health problems, and having something that she can do with friends and other helpful people is kind of a big deal for her. Thank you in advance.
  6. I'm getting a "HOMECOMING validation failed" message when I try to run it. Seems to see the folder and identify my account just fine. I'm sure it's user error. Any thoughts?
  7. Thanks for the response. I had always thought that the way you could slot while leveling was the only way you could slot. It hadn't occurred to me that you could add more slots to the 49 power after a respec. That changes a lot.
  8. I don't understand how the end of the build works. In game, you have to take char before you are able to take Fire Ball or Melt Armor. Is there some way around this that I don't know about?
  9. Whenever I attempt to export a build to Discord, the message pops up that it's unable to reach the remote server. I've done the setup for our Discord in the configuration menu. Does this version not support it, or have I just derped the setup somehow?
  10. Hello folks! I'm a longtime CoH player, and have generally made my way by piggybacking on builds and advice from folks in the community. Even on my best day, I was never very good at assessing builds myself, so I would put things together based on what others had done, and then maybe make adjustments based on my experience playing them. I've tried a few times to come up with builds myself, but I really lose track of what's what when it comes to set bonuses and what I'm shooting for. Over the last couple of years I've developed a sleep disorder (that still hasn't completely been figured out), and my short-term memory and ability to focus have really taken a hit. The BrainFog thing really comes from that. I've tried to put together a build for a fire/dark tanker, but I'm not sure if I'm even really in the right ballpark. I know that knockdown/back is a pain, so I put some enh in there to combat that. I think mystic flight would be a nice touch, just for the vibe of it. Other than that, I just want to be able to tank things and not feel like I'm wearing tissue paper armor. I figure the heals and consumes are important, but that's just me guessing. I was trying to shore up defense some with it being a resistance based set, but I'm not sure if I did it very well. If anyone would be willing to offer some thoughts on the build and maybe offer some suggestion of things I should consider changing, I would really appreciate it.

  11. I didn't really explain it very well. What I'm talking about is that I'm able to expand the window itself to be larger, and I can get the text to be larger in a couple of spots, but can't have the elements within the window be larger. Like the circle areas where the enhancements go, and the bars representing the powers themselves. When I maximize the window, more than half of my screen is just black, blank space.
  12. I play on a pretty huge monitor, and have not-so-great eyesight. I've seen where I'm able to increase text size within the info tab and the powers, but is there a way to scale the UI larger to be able to see the build and enhancement icons and such better? I realize this might not exactly be a priority, but it could just be something I missed that is already there. Someone else had mentioned it earlier in the thread, and I was just looking to clarify.
  13. In spite of the fact it's been mentioned several times, I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been mentioned more. It was such a big part of what I did in the game. My memory is terrible. Plus, the spreadsheet we have works up until the moment I ctrl+f to find something. Then the boxes won't check anymore. Probably user error somehow, but it would be nice to have something similar to City Info Tracker back.
