  1. Hello, friends, The Legendary Living Hellfire coming in hot. I present my first in my limited series of conversations with community members on the Excelsior server. On this, our very first conversation I speak with Englebert. This is his character name and he has asked me not to use his global name, which is an entirely reasonable request in my view. Shortly prior to us sitting down in The Crucible, which is the name for that cozy space in my base where these conversations take place, I had the opportunity to see the base he had constructed which you will see referenced in the conversation. It truly is an impressive design, very large, very detailed and in the style of a spaceship. I very much encourage you to check it out if you have the opportunity. Now, a couple things about this chat from a technical point of view. I realize that the rules I have laid out say that there will be zero editing, however this conversation began before it even occurred to me that transcribing these conversations for this project might even be a good idea, so there is a portion of the chat that is redacted, but it's all at the beginning and is extraneous and not really relevant anyway. Moving forward once the chat begins there will be no editing for content, spelling or anything. Further, this is transcribed directly to notepad for two reasons. Primarily because I feel that despite as cramped as it might seem it maintains the authentic feel of the chat itself. I'm trying to duplicate as much as possible what it would be like to experience this chat in game in the very chat channel where it occurs. Secondly due to the nature of the way /copychat works formatting the chat to seem more pleasing to the eye, because I'll be honest this can seem like a wall of text, would be almost prohibitive in terms of the time it would take to do a more rich-text format. Having said that I'm happy to field suggestions and ideas about how it could be done so quickly and easily without being overly laborious, but again remember that authenticity is important in terms of how these conversations should read. Without further ado, I present my very first conversation in this limited series; Hellfireside Chats with The Legendary Living Hellfire featuring Englebert, master base builder and all-round interesting guy. This conversation took place over the course of just under two hours, but it should take far less time than that to read. I encourage you to comment and discuss in the comments of this post. I look forward to your participation in whatever form you feel comfortable participating. Cheers; -Liv Hellfireside Chats - Englebert.txt
  2. Y'know, honestly, if I wasn't doing shift work I probably would have started them up again but I would miss literally half the Saturdays of the year, so they just aren't feasible for me to run anymore, but I'm glad you remember them! I had a blast doing them and would sometimes have enough people to run two or three teams! Cheers!
  3. Not at all, all these conversations will take place in my base around that little fire pit that I have pictured above and all bases can be accessed through Pocket D. I will provide you with the code to enter, of course and we'll just sit and chat. Thank you for your interest! I should have my first conversation posted soon™.
  4. Hi. I am The Legendary Living Hellfire. You might know me from beta or on Live on the Justice server. You might know me as the guy that started the Saturday Matinées or the guy that led the team that won the first ever Timeforce competition, and yes I still have the clock that was the prize. You might know me as being a member of the Forum Cartel on the Live forums. You may know me from this very server. I'm here to announce my new series of conversations. I love this community, I have always loved this community and I would like to get to know it better. I would like to invite you on a journey of discovery of your fellow players. I would like to start a project where I have a short series of conversations with my fellow community members. These conversations will take place in my base, in this space. We will sit and talk in /local chat and I will ask you questions about you and try to get to know you better. These conversations will be copied and pasted, in their entirety into a post on these forums for all to read. Obviously some of you are not interested at all in participating and I understand and respect that, but I do invite you to read these conversations and please know that your participation in any conversation that results is also invited. For those of you that are interested in participating and having a conversation with me, The Legendary Living Hellfire, please DM me. I have some simple rules about how these conversations will work; 1. If the conversation becomes belligerent or overly adversarial the conversation will be terminated. This is about community and meeting and understanding our fellow community members. 2. These conversations shall be in /local chat and will be shared in their entirety, typos, mis-tells and all. These conversations are not staged or scripted and to maintain their authenticity I will not be editing them in any way. 3. These conversations can be in character if you would like to role-play, or they can not be in character, I'm okay either way. However you would like to present yourself to the community is what I would like to support. 4. These conversations happen at my discretion, by my choosing, on my schedule. I invite you all to participate how you like, as you like.
  5. So, the enhancement in each set that is the "Chance for <additional effect here>" cannot be boosted... I assume this is normal because it doesn't work on any of them in any of the sets I tried, so should I attune those or just leave them as is...
  6. Okay... soooo... followup question. Let's assume for a moment, hypothetically that I have this *ahem* "friend" who already has some purple sets slotted but I already... I mean HE already attuned them. Is it worthwhile, assuming I can afford it (and I can because I'm The Legendary Living Hellfire), to replace them with fresh enhancements in order to bump them to +5?
  7. Thanks, guys, this has been really helpful.
  8. Okay, so I'm a fire/fire/flame blaster and my recharge is actually pretty good. Even without permahasten I always have *something* I can throw at a baddie, even at the bottom well of the attack chain. Assuming recharge isn't something I'm interested in maxing at this point, and given that the impression I've gotten from your post is that recharge is really the leading attraction for purples, are there other considerations I should be aware of before making the decision to either switch out to purple or not? I mean, I get that it's hard for you to say without looking at my specific build and the numbers and whatever, and you also likely aren't aware that I'm built for efficiency but that I'm also in many ways a concept character, but any other input you have would be helpful.
  9. So, this conflicts with information I've gotten that it's only the attuned sets that still provide the set bonuses when exemp'd down and I was told that if I'm someone who spends a lot of time exemp'd down to do lower level content that the attuned oranges are the way to go. From what you're saying here, it sounds like your opinion is, pound for pound, that purples have the edge over even attuned oranges as a general thing and cost notwithstanding that given the choice purples are the way to go. EDIT - Also, assuming that's the case, you mentioned ATOs. Are they worth keeping were I to switch out my attuned oranges for purple sets?
  10. Hey, guys, I'm sure this is a repeat question but I'm just looking for some input, feedback and opinions and hoping to start a light discussion about different coloured sets. I'm currently running fully slotted with attuned oranges. I've never bothered with purple sets because early on when I joined Homecoming I was told that they really aren't worthwhile unless you're PvPing, which is something I don't do. If you've got a moment and don't mind, would you please comment with your opinion on this? Cheers;
  11. Okay, first up a round of apologies. I've submitted a petition in game seeking clarification so I apologize to the mods and GMs if that was an improper use of that function. I also apologize to all you folks who have likely seen this issue come up before. That being said, I'm getting a lot of conflicting information about the Paladin construction spawning. I know there are three points in KR and I know where they are. To be clear, it's the construction spots I'm looking for, not Paladin himself. I've heard that you get a badge for Paladin and that you only get a badge for preventing his constrcution. I've heard that it's bugged and you have to ask a Mod to spawn him and not. I've heard that it's just super rare but working fine. I've heard that the construction sites only spawn after server reboot. Does anyone know, FOR SURE, what the deal is? If a GM or Mod could reply to this for clarity that would be super duper as well, please.
  12. Guys... how do you not vote Legendary? Sincerely yours;
  13. I really wish they wouldn't turn off automatically and that they would stay running like other toggles. Can someone please convince me that having them expire and cooldown instead of persisting when activated (until you are defeated or turn them off manually, ofc) is actually better? I've been wracking my brain because it's not like you can use it below level 45 anyway, so I'm finding myself wondering why that decision was made and why. Can anyone help me out with a little insight?
  14. Hey, guys, I just want to make clear that I had nothing to do with the creation of this (or any of the other) mods, I'm just the messenger. This fantastic mod was created by my friend Dodger over on the Justice/Excelsior Discord! Come on by and say "hello" and "thank you" to Dodger and Profit, the creators of these fine mods!
