  1. I'm late to this and haven't read every response but for me it's when I'm hit by some inspiration for a character. I have some characters that I'm emotionally invested in, maybe a concept character that has come to me when I'm not even in game. So those are the ones likely to get the bio and wil generally be significantly more successful in terms of my playing style. I make many toons but the majority of those are simply "I wonder how this powerset combo will work?" and those do not get a bio, unless they prove exceptional in play or something significant happens to them in game, s
  2. there are far too many currencies in this game as it stands. In a way I have a certain sympathy for the OP's suggestion but put simply, no Given a choice, I would reduce the game's currencies to 3, Inf, Shards & Merits, just let them buy more stuff and have done. There's no reason to add artificial gates to playing a game that is effectively free.
  3. I knew of it but I didn't have the ability to watch it but I did see a few stills and Christian Walker was too small and unkempt for my liking. As an aside, I believe having spoken briefly with Oeming that they would be very open to a Powers MMO - which would completely rock.
  4. Which is kind of my point - Cole could have negotiated, and Primals would probably have been open to that, since if PraeHami got past Cole, Earth would be a prime (pun intended) target. And even if Freedom Phalanx wasn't open, if Cole negotiated with Recluse, who might even be more open to an accord. With Cole on his side, Recluse could take Paragon City for his own.
  5. See above. Praetorian Imperial Secret Service was exactly that (although I grant that it was conceived originally as an envelope pushing joke that even got Avatea to laugh (and approve) but it soon became quite serious due to the realization that this was a huge hole in the canon. If the players take the view that Praetorians are not fundamentally evil, that they go about their lives in the day to day, trusting in their government to do "the right thing" and work in their society's best interests, then that is a basically good goal. There must obviously be a cadre of pe
  6. I'm finding I need a bind to turn Whirlpool into a targetted AoE rather than a Ground AoE Is there a good bind for Poison Trap too?
  7. As golstat2003 remarked, that is a very interesting point but the writing is so shoddy that isn't what came across (at least to me) nor did there seem to be any kind of build up to it. With the scene you mention, we saw the lead in, we understood what was happening and the tensions were there because we, as viewers could see where that could potentially lead. I would excuse that if it were well written but it was just so crappily sub-par that I can't forgive it.
  8. You do not have a bad time playing City of Heroes. Count your blessings.
  9. Thanks Onlyasandwich, that was interesting. I've looked at your build and Flea's too and come up with this which I'm pretty happy wtih. Re-reading Frosticus' guide to Poisons I realised I'd misunderstood what NtB was so I did junk it but that allowed me to add Poison Trap. I also junked Hibernate - it's a very useful "Oh shit" button but I figure I've got enough holds, Def & Res to be able to run away instead if stuff gets difficult I'm pretty happy wtih this, I think it gives me good all round protection and allows me to deliver some good damage, especially when o
  10. I like the content of Goldside but to me it has two really awful, fundamental, flaws. Firstly, Cole is portrayed as a monstrous control-freak who will stop at nothing to protect his people even to the point of nuking them to death. Yet, he is intelligent, as are the team that he's assembled to run Praetoria. His biggest issue is the Phamidon - and yet in being aware of P-Hamidon he also knows of Primal Earth and the heroes there who regularly beat down their own version. So instead of approaching Primals and saying "give us a hand" he effectively goes to war with the Primals to mai
  11. Ok good question and some interesting points thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. I was going for an "all round" build - one that would give me a broad basis for soloing against different enemies. As for the rest, you've given me thoughts to consider and process. If you have a build based around your suggestions I'd love to see it.
  12. This Hero build was built using Mids Reborn https://github.com/Reborn-Team/MidsReborn Click this DataLink to open the build!

  13. I take your point about Stealth but I often take it since with an IO slotted it gives great invis and is cheap. I like the build, but I did notice you'd sold me on the sharks in the whirlpool and then omitted them. I do like Neurotoxic Breath. It seems to be very effective against all levels of foes, for relatively cheap cost, I guess that's why its cone is so narrow. I also hate hate hate the fighting pool because of the fact it takes three powers to get the good stuff. That's not to decry the benefits of the end result, but it means at least a couple of powers I'd ord
