  1. Agreed with you there. All I meant was that a farming toon must have both in order to be "viable". And of course "viable" means many different things. My own fire farmer isn't maxed out in defense so any map that has patrols I need to use purps to survive it at +4/8. So cheaper builds certain can do it just maybe not be able to AFK certain maps or mob densities.
  2. I've not used dual blades but I did take an energy aura stalker to 50. That was an electric melee primary. Look forward to your posts.
  3. Thank you @Ignatz the Insane for keeping us posted. More hard data and proof that the crusaders out there that lament that the "little guy" can't possibly afford to make a character from scratch and play it to have fun just don't know what they are talking about. My other request if you are willing would be to maybe do it red side next time? Cause you know... red side is best side 😈
  4. I always support more things for players to do in game. My two comments on OP's idea here would be to make sure that anything added doesn't cause massive slow down in the zones. My other comment would be to attempt to limit the areas that are impacted by the event so that players that wish to avoid the event can do so without worrying about being defeated by some random AoE or other such mob power.
  5. Awesome idea there @Yomo Kimyata. One quick thought: Doesn't the level not matter? Meaning someone could post a say level 21 (to use the example above) on the AH and your bid would fill at whatever level you put up? Or am I missing something here?
  6. Definitely something I need to remember when leveling the next alt is going to be utilizing hero packs more. I've basically ignored them so far but really they seem to be a much better way to turn 100 mil (for 10) into useful stuff especially while leveling up because of the chance for the XP boost temp. Good info.
  7. @Diantane if you follow the low budget fire farmer guide that was linked above you'll have zero issues with influence and be able to afford a fully tricked out fire farmer by the end. I did it from scratch in about a week. No seed inf. No boosting. Just fire farm. There are some very specific things you need to do with the build in order to achieve full 4/8 status. You cannot get there with SOs. You cannot get there with generic IOs. You can get there with IO set bonuses, certain pool power picks, and incarnates. The rad melee / fire armor brute is one of the best active farmers. If
  8. My point about the budget fire build was that my build is a bit different from the guide. If memory serves by the end of the guide the author's build can handle 4x8.
  9. Windows 10? I run Win7 and I think HC has crashed less than half a dozen times on me. Win10 I've anecdotally heard from SG mates that sometimes it crashes though I suspect it is more a driver issue there. Just wondering.
  10. I also built a self funded low budget farmer as described by that low budget fire farm guide mentioned by @Grouchybeast. Works well. The only issue my final build has that the post doesn't is that I didn't fully max out my fire defense so I cannot AFK farm 4/8 which is fine for me. I just pop a purple once in a while and I'm fine. My reason for this is I do run the character outside of AE once in a while so my build is also viable outside of a fire farm. It can't run as the MBT but I can certainly handle the alpha and incoming attacks long enough for a team to take out everything in a spa
  11. Everything you could ever want to know: The main point is already made by @Neiska . You've got to use IO sets and get your defenses and resistance capped for fire to survive at anything above 0x4. It can be done.
  12. No worries. I find that having a multitude of different perspectives to pull from makes it easier to find information. Never know what someone else will remember that I've forgotten or never really paid any attention to that can be useful.
  13. Good start. Please do keep us updated on your progress and your steps as you go. Always some little nugget there that I wasn't aware which is amusing given the amount of time I've spent with this game.
  14. The idea here was to give the OP some suggestions and encouragement not necessarily map out the optimal path for making inf. There are plenty of guides and quite a few good threads about doing it "organically". (See posts by @Ukase and @Yomo Kimyata amongst others). I think we've come to a consensus in quite a few threads that there are multiple paths to victory here and the optimal strategy is to employ any and all of them depending on your preferences in game.
  15. Plenty of useful information here that I hope OP can take and make use of. My only comment is don't be discouraged. The first toon is always the poorest in terms of inf. Don't stress over it. As stated this game is very forgiving. You can go entirely from 1 - 50 and never enhance anything. You won't be running 4/8 and you'll miss a LOT when you get into your 30s but it still can be done. Think of enh as just a boost that gets you through the next set of levels. Most of us originally only slotted them every 5 break levels and even then it wasn't everything only the really important ones
