About Me

  1. I am working on a Dark/Shield Brute and I saw two builds on here and wondered what people thought of em'. I was thinkin' of using one of em.
  2. First of all sorry for the wall of text. But I want to make the attempt to get across how I play and what I like about Nature and that I want to see the SCOURGE! I really enjoy playing Nature/ and /Nature. I have a Beast/Nature and Demons/Nature Mastermind (mmm. the resists on demons/nature). I also have a Nature/Ice Defender. I never have leveled a Corruptor past around level 25ish. So I decided to take the Defender and see if I could do a straight swap over to Corruptor. Of course I've found out that the Defenses that were softcapped on the Defender are not soft capped on
  3. This is and it may be obvious to all of you, my first fully done build from scratch. The goal for this build was to constantly maintain 400% recharge at all times or at least the massive majority of that time I chose energy for the force feedback proc and rad emission for the -regen when fighting AV's My hope from posting this here is to figure out what the hell happened to my endurance and why it is in the negatives Looking into the future I see myself having lots of endurance issues so I will be taking cardiac and ageless I'll take the -defense for int
  4. There are a lot of nice guides in this forum, but I still get a little lost in knowing what to do with which enhancements I should sell, and which ones I should convert and then sell. So I'm going to start this thread and list what enhancements I've crafted and then ask you, the experts, whether I should straight sell, or convert to something else and then sell. All of these IO's are Level 50 (unless stated different) that I crafted today. Should I straight sell them, or is there something I should convert them to and then sell? (level 10) Unspeakable Terror: Acc/End
  5. If you had these, how would you slot them? (Didn't know where to post this. Not a certain archetype..) Combat Jumping (For Defense) Rune Of Protection (For Damage Resistance) Arcane Bolt (Offense Attack)
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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!

    looking to make an alternative/ fun farmer that is good for solo farms and also following another farmer looking at making a dark melee/fire aura brute, any and all help is appreciated and yes i understand it won't be as fast as a spines or rad fire, but already have a rad fire want something different. want to try. i want to try and make it as efficient and good for solo fire farming Version 1: http://www.cohplanner.com/mids/download.php?uc=1512&c=685&a=1370&f=HEX&dc=78DA6594D94F135114C66798A940A13B8502B2D52208525A40E39610156B549A9098F85A471961A429A4
  12. hi all, i'm gonna to try to make a build for pvp, but i have 3 small problem. 1) new to pvp 2) new into build 3) almost new in english. Could you tell me if this is wrong? and what i can do for optimize this build please? thx a lot edit: i'll make it again, not good for pvp the new one Hero Plan by Mids' Reborn : Hero Designer https://github.com/Crytilis/mids-reborn-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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 🙂
  21. I saw someone wearing this (possibly a GM) and was wondering how can I obtain this outfit? 🤔
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
