  1. Looks like the Long Forum Export on Mids is the perpetrator. Thanks!
  2. While I think Lightning Field full of Procs would be fun, it PROBABLY isn't worth that investment in a practical sense. So I went with a totally practical build that is fun and survivable, but I still miss some of the "fun," more utility powers (Havoc Punch, Epic/Patron powers).

  3. I'm trying to post a Mids build in the Blaster forums and continuously getting this error: [[Template forums/front/topics/topic is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]] Mids is up to date.
  4. Blasters have been my favorite AT since issue 1, beginning purely as a Range-only + way too many power pool powers before finding the love of blapping. Even upon embracing the melee attacks, I never took the respective damage auras; the cost/benefit analysis just never made sense to me. However, I want it to! I have a rather survivable Water/Elec Blaster to which I'm looking to add Lightning Field, but I had a few questions: Is Tough/Weave basically required for adding a Damage Aura? That's fine I don't mind, I just assumed that was the case. Lightning Field seems like a perfect Proc machine. What immediately jumped out to me was the Power Transfer Heal Self, the Avalanche Knockdown, and the Fury of the Gladiator Resistance Debuff. Any others I may be neglecting besides the assortment of damage procs? Finally and most importantly, is the added aggro of a damage aura "worth it"? If I'm using it with the intention of adding primarily survivability procs, am I defeating the purpose?
  5. OR, I could lose Crushing Blow or Follow Through to fit Melt Armor and Fireball vs. Electrifying Fences, Ball Lightning. Thoughts on that perspective?
  6. I think there was a bit of misunderstanding. I WAS fearful of END issues, so I loaded up on the Energy Mastery pool and Ageless, but it isn't a concern at all; my END bar never moves, so I think I'm losing the Energy Mastery pool. Fire would be ideal, but don't think I want to/can lose 3 powers to fit in Fireball, so the Ball Lightening approach is worth considering.
  7. I could, yes, in replacing Superior Conditioning and Physical Perfection. That might be the trick
  8. I was hoping you guys could take a look at my build and offer some further maximization suggestions. Right off the top, I went overboard on the Endurance Management aspect; 50 levels of running out of endurance with Titan Weapons is enough to scar a guy. Choosing Ageless for my Destiny Incarnate only emphasizes that "issue" - I could drop that Destiny, but Bio and Titan both really benefit from the +Rech. I'd rather lose one or both of my Energy Master ancillary power pool picks, but I don't have a great idea of what powers to replace them with. I wouldn't mind having Fireball, but don't think I can carve out a spot for 3 power picks. I'd also like to know what I should be striving for with the build really. I could replace my Mako's Bite enhancements with Hecatombs and my Obliterations with Armageddons, but I don't know if that would necessarily be worthwhile. I wish there were Defensive purple sets. Note: The blank enhancement slots contain a couple from the new enhancements: Parasitic Aura: Preemptive Optimization - EndMod/Rech and EndMod/End/Rech; Physical Perfection: Power Transfer - End Mod and Chance to Heal proc Hero Plan by Mids' Reborn : Hero Designer https://github.com/ImaginaryDevelopment/imaginary-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  9. I got him fully slotted and started on Incarnates only to decide the build just wasn't worth it. The performance boost that comes from full IOs. wasn't there as much as I expected. I still love Titan Weapons, it's the Stone Armor I've turned on... I made a Titan/Bio and am enjoying it a lot more through 44 levels.
  10. I just need a way out of being stuck with my most hated travel power constantly as my Stoner. 😞 I was hoping for an exception, like it wouldn't detoggle until you took a step.
  11. I'm hoping someone tested this so I don't have to burn a Respec, but I see no mention... Is Speed of Sound's teleport functionally usable with with Stone Armor? Or would Granite/Rooted detoggle as soon as you toggled Speed of Sound on? I'm assuming this is the case.
  12. My Display > Scale and Layout on 175% was the culprit. Apparently my laptop has been optimized for a 65 year old this entire time without me realizing that while change is scary, it's also an improvement.
  13. I think this is what I've settled on if anyone is interested to perhaps critique.

  14. So we're led here by another problem. I had played at like 1024x760 for years. Recently, Mids had developed a display error when tabbing between the game and it in which it would display really tiny, pixelated, unreadable slots. If I looked at it outside of the game, it was fine, and it had just developed over the past few months or so, but I use Mids tabbing between the game so much that this problem necessitated me finally changing my laptop resolution and my game resolution to 1920x1080, which I did today. That fixed the display problem, but now I have this problem with the missing Epic field. The window isn't crunched down at all - I can minimize/maximize and it not correct.
