  1. I have Polar Lights, the all dps versions, on a few characters, they seem quite acceptable. I don't know where they rte on teh Ub3r mega nerf them now scale, but they put out an acceptable amount of DPS. And they are relatively small and unobtrusive, which is nice. regards, Screwloose "I am not young enough to know everything."
  2. At what level did you take the power? You will be exemplared down (to level 15?) and limited to power that you took 5 levels above that.
  3. Sure, but what do you want. I'd suggest a have look down in the Blaster Forum you will probably find some posts on AR and Devices. I have done AR a couple of times and all the powers are good, take lots of them and 6 slot them and put enhancements in them. If you are able to get IO sets use ones that give you Set Bonuses that improve things you want. Devices similarly, if you think that you will find a power useful and fun take it. If you can't find at least 6 powers from each powerset that look fun and useful try a different powerset. You can chose Flight straight out of the box, and Afterburner if you want to go fast, I don't but I know plenty of people who do. regards, Screwloose. "I am not young enough to know everything."
  4. Edge is correct, if you are slotting Single Origin Enhancements. If you are slotting Dual Origin Enhancements then I would slot 2 Accuracy and then Damage or whatever other Effect they produce. Also if you run the Death From Below Trial a couple of times you can select the Accuracy and Damage buffs which last til level 22 and will make your early leveling a lot more enjoyable, as well as being decent Exp for lower level toons. Also regarding Endurance costs Attacks cost a lot more End than almost all Toggles, so after Accuracy and Effect consider an Endurance Reduction in your attacks if you are having issues with End. regards, Screwloose "I am not young enough to know everything."
  5. There are two levels of build perfection here. First you should maximise the output of the defensive powers that you have by slotting them and enhancing them well. Then there is another layer of threat mitigation that you can get from IO Set bonuses. This can help you max out what you already have (Resistance or Defence) and can add threat mitigation that your defensive powerset was never meant to have. Adding 20% Melee Defense to a melee character that gets none from it's defensive powerset makes a whole lot of difference. regards, Screwloose "I am not young enough to know everything."
  6. If you want to fill the team role of Tank then you should take and use Taunt. If you are talking about the Maneuvers power from the Leadership pool then to me that seems like a poor choice, not much return for your power choice or End cost. Hard to say much more on the info provided. regards, Screwloose. "I am not young enough to know everything."
  7. I don't think it is a bug, but it is poor programming. The Safeguard missions can fail if one of the robbers gets past you and gets to their exit point. It shouldn't happen as soon as you enter the Bank, but at high levels the Villains will break the Bank Vault very quickly. There are a few missions which require you to make sure someone doesn't escape. At some point you will trigger them to try to get away and they should make some sort of exclamation which you should be able to see as NPC text. What can happen then is that if there is more than one way to get to the exit from where they start and you go one way and they go the other then you can just miss them. There aren't a lot of failable missions, but the ones that are can be annoyingly difficult to succeed in. I don't think there are any circumstances where "fail"ing a mission has any impact on progression, except that it can end a mission quickly so you don't get to beat up more bad guys, but it can be annoying. regards, Screwloose.

  8. Could have been Shat-ober. month of William Shatner.
  9. https://forums.homecomingservers.com/code-of-conduct/ That's what I read in the current code of conduct. regards, Screwloose "I am not young enough to know everything."
  10. There wasn’t a lot of thought behind it. When I started I was seeing runs of purchases around 150 and I thought that was a level where someone was getting a bad deal so I started putting bulk buy orders of my own at higher than whatever I was seeing. I think that started at about 500 and has slowly crept up. When I say bulk I am only talking about 30 to 40 stacks on 4 or 5 characters. So between 150 and 200 stacks in total. Which is a bit, but I am seeing about 20,000 buy orders at some points so I am at most 10% of the standing buy orders. I was also interested to see what would happen. One thing that happened is that there seem to be others with large bulk buy orders, because every few days I will find my orders not filled and see purchases a couple of inf higher than I was offering. So I bump my buy price and put another round of bulk orders in. That peaked at 851 and has slipped back a bit since. Also there is an element of price support. I think around 1000 is a reasonable price for yellow salvage so I wouldn’t be bulk buying at a higher price than that and when I need some for crafting I usually pay less than 1000, depending on how quick I want it. In the last couple of weeks I have been interested to see how low the stockpile (over the seed stock) will go and it seems to be slowly going down. I have no idea what the low point will be, at some point we will get to the stranded stock that people have way overpriced, but I think we are still away to go to get there. regards, Screwloose.

  11. I have often bought whole bunches of white salvage at under an up to 250 a piece and vendored them just to take excess volume out of the system. For a few weeks I have been keeping several hundred buy orders in for yellow salvage at under 1000 and vendoring whatever I get. At the start I could get 100's a day at 505 each, recently it has been up to 851 and I haven't filled all my buy orders each day. At the same time the number of salvage pieces for sale has been going down from about 34k to under 28k. Though I think it will be harder to get it down as it gets lower. regards, Screwloose.

  12. I folllowed this guide for getting all my Ouro badges. Generally easier if you can do the Villain arcs as they are shorter and often in the one zone. Regards, Screwloose "I am not young enough to know everything."
  13. Although still available via Orouboros flashback. It doesn't get run often, but I do see it and have done it once for my badging character. regards, Screwloose. "I am not young enough to know everything."
