About Me

  1. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations for a tri-form PB trying to hit the softcap in defense in any one damage type? Or, as close as possible? I just don't know how to get there and perhaps I am missing something... Is it possible? (Note, I am unable to post builds due to being on Mac). Thanks for any help!
  2. Couple things first...this is not a "can't you post a Mids build for me" thread, secondly, I have yet to make a Sent. That being said, my question is advice or better yet let me explain my thoughts, I intend to make this toon as a ranged blitz attack style, the secondary will be purely for ranged def and probably S/L because caves, council bases, the claustrophobic areas..you get it. So can a Sent be effective for this play style? With the primary acting as a control damage set because of the KB to force them away if they get too close plus damage obviously, couple this with the "speedster" as
  3. I'm having a problem with the Mission Architect system - namely, the game stops responding when I try to make profiles for my custom NPCs. Every time I finish such a profile - in the same format as the hero I.D. cards - the game stops responding, and I get the "program has stopped responding" prompt that means I have to close or wait for the program to respond. And no matter how long I wait, I always have to close the game in the end. When I log back in, I find that my work was saved. But I shouldn't have to go through this EVERY SINGLE TIME I make a new AE NPC. I need so
  4. hey all so I played yesterday and today the window doesn't open when I launch the game. I get this error now. I have not moved the files i was using tequila and i did validate the files just fine. I installed the homecoming launcher thinking it might have been tequila but i get the same message.
  5. Hello All, Im fairly new to Homecoming, but was an original player. I was fairly young at that time when the game first launched and didnt really get to know how to properly build a tank and such. I have now beeing playing a Street Justice and Willpower Brute. But, I need help making sure Im enhancing my Willpower buff properly. I feel like Im dealing decent damage, and absorbing decent damage, but it feels off. Have I missed something? I feel like for my level (32) I should be ble to take more damage. Thanks!

  8. Currently, I have one level 50+ and it's a brute. Now I want to work towards a blaster, him being level 32 fire/fire. After doing a quick search, I wasn't able to find what I was looking for. Are there any good builds already that someone could share, or is it to soon to start worrying about builds? Mainly I wanted to focus on massive AoE Damage while having the Mystical Flight for my theme of Fireball wizard.
  9. I have this character, Mackintosh, who's a sentient cloak--think MCU Dr. Strange's cape or Carpet from Aladdin. The body/mannequin is there only because the character creator forced me to have one. To keep this short, I'll put Mack's bio in a reply. One of the RP hurdles is that Mack can't speak. Mack is weakly telepathic and can "hear" that way, but it can't really have a conversation. I've mostly been talking OOC, or using thoughts to describe physical actions. 1) Anyone have a non-speaking toon and have tips to share? 2) How would I craft some macros/keybinds for common
  10. So my volcano-shaman Earth/Fire dominator has been creeping through the mid-forties, which is traditionally when I start thinking about an endgame build for them. And I've reached the point where I've been staring at Mids for so long that I'm not sure anything even makes sense anymore, so I figured it was about time to throw it up on the forums to get some more eyes on it. Some of my thoughts: Despite having quicksand on my live build, I probably don't actually need it: Stone Cages does almost as much -def and will also stick a group to the floor. It's gone. I've gone
  11. So, I am about to get my first 50 since over a decade ago, and that terrifies me! I was never very good at making builds, and things like Mids sort of confuse me. However, I want to learn how to understand building a character instead of just asking for somebody to hand me a build and me still not really understanding what it all means and not being able to build future characters. I think all this is why I have so many alts and no 50's... getting to the end game and trying to figure everything out is scary! That said, I still don't have a patron power thing-a-majig because... well
  12. This is by no means official, but it DOES answer some of the most frequently asked questions I’ve seen in the game so far. Making It Work How Do I Install / Setup / Run The Game? Have you followed all the steps here: https://forums.homecomingservers.com/index.php/topic,950.0.html Top to bottom. Read and do all of them. Seriously. You’ll save yourself a lot of trouble. What is Tequila? Aside from the obvious answer, a delicious adult beverage, Tequila is what the Launcher for City of Heroes is called. A Launcher is just a program used to make sure files are up to date and
  13. Hello, I just bought the Alienware AW2720HF... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YQHGC9L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And have been both blown away and disappointed. Blown away with the incredible rendering, but disappointed at how text and icons get pixelated because they're so detailed. I've also ordered a Dell S-Series... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N2L5CXO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Which has a 2560x1440 resolution. This resolution is what I'm used to playing on and have no issues with resizing windows
  14. I am on a Mac running Catalina, and I had been playing fine for months with Island Rum 020920203. I took a couple months off from playing, and when I came back, Island Rum hangs at: I am used to that, so I click the palm tree and select "Re-scan". But now it hangs with about 90% progress bar at: The manifest it is referencing is Homecoming https://path.savecoh.com/manifest.xml I thought i'd start fresh, so I downloaded the latest version of Island Rum, but now, OSX gives me this error message: I searched the forums, but couldn't find anyt
  15. I heard Kinetic Melee was good so I want to try it. I need help picking a Secondary. The options are:Bio,Dark,Energy (Maybe),Invulnerability,Regeneration,Super Reflexes,Willpower. And the only reason why those are the only options because I'm trying to stay with my character's look. (Plant/Nature creature sort of) Anyway..HELP PLEASE! THANKS 🙂
  16. I saw someone wearing this (possibly a GM) and was wondering how can I obtain this outfit? 🤔
  17. Howdy folks, As the topic title says, I need help deciding whether to make a Blaster or a Dominator for PvP. Will be for mostly 1 on 1 and small team fights, as well as zone stuff when and if the opportunity presents itself. The choice for me is narrowed down to either a Psi/EM or Psi/Martial or Psi/Time for the blaster, or a Dark/Energy for the Dominator. Any help on the pros and cons of which to choose is definitely welcome, thanks.
  18. Greetings, Heroes and Villains alike! I'm new to building characters - this is only my second - and am hoping to get some guidance on this one: My EM/Shield Scrapper. This is not based on any posted builds out there; I made it from scratch. Given my lack of build experience, I'm sure I've made some errors. I suspect it's not the most efficient build. I don't have a methodology for building yet, and I admit to being a bit overwhelmed by all of the options and info available. But I'm sticking with it, and I mean to improve... This is my first EM/Shield
  19. I used to have a keybind, to wit: /bind t petsay_all <em dance> but now all they do is say "em dance". Any help is appreciated.
  20. Hello guys, I wish to know if this build is interresting or not at all. Thx for your help http://www.cohplanner.com/mids/download.php?uc=1467&c=665&a=1330&f=HEX&dc=78DA6594DB6E12611485FF298395965AE8C19652283D502894017AF06C4C5AADD14A525B0F978450C049482103357AE9850F604CF4153CB455DF43A3462F7D050F89E70B831BD62A2561C2E463D6FED79EFDEF3D33A93BE79D7B17EF9D535AEF723153A9A4974B96B55DAE962C7B2A5330B3362547A79CDE6620BD9ED92AE4368D15D3CAA597C4541D3A882D6DE7F3C6AAB995AB9AD98AEA5A2B958AC6463997DBEC6BFC5D2959D95CBA944FDF348B4527A275C9BADB83B859B85535B70ADE0B65336B1

  22. Hey everyone. I've been having trouble finding a consensus on WM/WP on the forums or any website in general. I started by using what builds I could find and then tweaked them with the help of the in-game Help chat and the Homecoming discord to create this build. I'd like to preemptively state that Laser Beam Eyes is a purely for fun and I'm sure there's another set that would be a better min/max. With that said, are there any other obvious improvements to be made here? This is intended to be a general max level build, not geared towards any specific activity. Shout out to Donut, Lo

  25. Hi all, I made an Ill/Time Controller and have been having a lot of fun with the combo. This is my first time using either powerset, though, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good guides for either. Basically, I'm curious about which powers in them are considered must-picks, and which are skippable. With Illusions, I'm curious how important Spectral Wounds is in the late game. If I respec out of it, will my pets be able to do enough damage for me to solo? Is Time's Juncture worth it if I'm going to be standing back most of the time? Same
