  1. General The Paragon City Hall has once again approved the budget to replace every tree in Atlas Park with pine trees for the Holiday season. Your taxed influence at work! Fixed a client crash when attempting to create a character with an invalid powerset combination.
  2. As per the patch notes; Atlas Park & Mercy Island Enemies in Atlas Park and Mercy Island should no longer reproduce like rabbits and spawn in on top of players Open world mobs required during the Officer Fields and Aaron Thiery missions are now extremely sparse. - Sewers used for Officer Fields are 3 rooms with the central room previously spawning in at least half a dozen pairs of Vahz. There is now a single pair in the entire room with a couple of others in the sides rooms for what is meant to be a hunt 10. - Likewise hunting Arachnos Commanders for Aaron Thiery there looks to have been some spawns removed entirely so for a hunt of 5 there are 3 in the zone with a 3 minute or so respawn. The changes are understandable as I do remember respawns often appearing in and around the rooms quite rapidly however the implementation feels heavy handed and now causes artificial timegates on progress while waiting for respawns. A middle ground between the original settings and the current ones seems needed.
  3. Patch Notes: Issue 27, Page 2 Tour Guide Missions Issue 27, Page 2 introduces a brand new type of mission: Tour Guide Missions. These are special tip missions which drop when street sweeping in most zones, and will direct you to any exploration badges that you haven't yet earned in that zone. This is especially helpful for unlocking Long Range Teleporter destinations without needing to rely on VidiotMaps. Detailed Info Enemies in most zones now have a small chance to drop a Tour Guide Mission Tip The tips will only drop when street sweeping, by defeating enemies out on the streets (critters spawned through other means will not count) The tips will drop regardless of your level - grey conned mobs will still drop tips - however, the tip drop rate increases based on the rank of the enemy you're fighting (ie: bosses are more likely to drop tips) Tour Guide Missions are classed as Tips, and will show up in the Tips tab of the Contacts window You can only hold one tip per zone at a time, but can carry a total of three Investigating this tip will direct you to one of the exploration badges in that zone Once accepted, these missions cannot be abandoned, autocompleted, or team completed - you must visit the badge location, which will auto-complete the mission If you earn the exploration badge for a specific tip before investigating it, it will point you towards a different exploration badge in that zone If you earn the exploration accolade before investigating the tip, you will only be able to dismiss it They do not grant any additional rewards beyond the badge All zones which can be unlocked in the Long Range Teleporter have Tour Guide Missions set up (apart from Pocket D and Kallisti Wharf), which is a total of 288 missions! Step 1: Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls. Step 2: Acquire Tips. Step 3: Collect Badges. Travel Power Updates This update brings a wide range of buffs for travel pools, a brand new travel power (as part of an update to the Concealment pool), and some mechanical improvements to how travel powers work. Check out this thread for a detailed breakdown of these changes and our goals for this update. Travel Power Stacking Almost all travel powers are no longer mutually exclusive and can be activated at the same time, but only the strongest buff of each type (run speed, jump speed, jump height, fly speed, air control) will apply This ensures that every power you pick or activate will only ever improve your mobility Some exceptions: Click buffs (eg: Inertial Reduction), external buffs (eg: Speed Boost), and auto powers (eg: Swift) still stack as they did before Prestige Run powers (Ninja Run, Beast Run, Athletic Run) are still mutually exclusive with each other Temporary jetpacks are still mutually exclusive with each other Sprint powers still stack with other run speed buffs and are still mutually exclusive with each other Some Peacebringer flight powers and effects are mutually exclusive with their vanilla counterparts Level Scaling Travel powers no longer increase in strength as you level up, the previous level 50 values now apply at all levels Travel speed caps no longer increase in strength as you level up, the previous level 50 values now apply at all levels Inherent Fitness All Inherent Fitness powers are now gained at level 1 rather than level 2 Travel Stances Inherent > Stance Added Ninja, Beast and Slide Travel Power Only customization options Selecting one of these options will cause the stance to only become active if any of the following powers are active: Super Speed Speed of Sound Super Jump Mighty Leap Infiltration Concealment Pool Concealment has been updated to include a new sneaky & versatile travel power: Infiltration Concealment is now classed as a travel pool - the first 3 powers in the pool are available immediately instead of just the first 2 Invisibility and Stealth have been merged together, the best parts of both powers are now available with just Stealth Infiltration now sits where Invisibility used to be in the T3 slot Stealth Stealth radius increased to match the numbers Invisibility had before this patch PvE radius has increased from 36ft to 55ft PvP radius has increased from 389ft to 611ft Out of combat defense increased from 3.5% to 7% The defense bonuses suppression in this power has been cleaned up, and will now suppress if the user attacks, heals or buffs an ally, commands a pet, is hit by a foe or the user attacks or interacts with a mission objective In-combat defence is unchanged Added a new 'Invisible' customization theme that makes the player barely visible when active Should this power be called Invisibility or Stealth? Have your say here! Infiltration Replaces Invisibility as Concealment's T3 power If you previously had Invisibility, you will now have Infiltration Grants a run and jump bonus similar to Ninja Run Grants out-of-combat stealth 36ft in PvE, 389ft in PvP (the same values as Stealth before this patch) Grants 1.75% out of combat defense Flight Pool Hover Added new "No Pose" customization themes that allows you to remove the Hover stance Note that the Hover stance has a higher priority than the default fly stance, meaning if Hover is active it will always apply even if other flight powers are also active, unless it's been disabled in power customisation Fly Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph) This increased cap is the equivalent of fully slotting the old version of Afterburner This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Fly > Afterburner Now built into Fly as a free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick If you already had Fly, you will now also have Afterburner for free Now a timed toggle (30s duration, 60s cooldown) which increases your flight speed cap by a further 25% (to 102.27mph), and speeds you up significantly No longer applies Only Affect Self or any other effects Evasive Maneuvers has inherited most of Afterburner's old defensive effects Added a Minimal FX customisation theme Null the Gull will allow you to hide Afterburner's pop-up tray Group Fly This power now applies to all pets regardless of their distance from the caster No longer inaccurately claims it applies -Acc Evasive Maneuvers Replaces the old version of Afterburner as Flight's tier 5 power If you previously had Afterburner, you now have Evasive Maneuvers Note that if you previously had Fly, the speed bonus previously given by Afterburner is built into Fly for free, and you'll get the new version of Afterburner as a free popup tray power Evasive Maneuvers is a defensive toggle with moderate endurance cost (0.26/s), aimed at providing you with excellent airborne combat mobility Provides the following effects whilst another Flight pool power (Fly, Hover or Group Fly) is also active: -Fly and immobilize protection Knockback resistance Significant air control Some unsuppressed flight speed (allowing you to fly much faster during combat) Also provides the same level of defense as old Afterburner while out of combat, but this is removed while in combat This bonus is suppressed for 10s when entering combat (the same as Stealth's out-of-combat defence) The defense bonuses will suppress if the user attacks, heals or buffs an ally, commands a pet, or interacts with a mission objective Sorcery Pool Mystic Flight Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph) This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Mystic Flight > Translocation Range increased from 300ft to 350ft Cast time reduced from 2.07s to 1.57s Endurance cost reduced from 13 to 9.75 Note: The rest of Sorcery has received an overhaul, see the Sorcery Pool Updates thread for more details Speed Pool Super Speed Now increases your run speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 92.5mph to 120.25mph) This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Now has a new momentum leap mechanic Running will build up momentum, allowing you to perform a single very high, very long jump after approximately 4 seconds of running Jumping will cause you to expend your momentum - after landing, you'll need to remain grounded and running in order to perform another momentum jump Super Speed's icon will gain a yellow ring when you are at maximum momentum Super Speed > Speed Phase New free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick Toggle, moderate endurance cost Removes collision with characters (ie: phase shift without being untargetable), and sets you to Only Affect Self This allows you to pass through enemies, allies, civilians, cars, and even the Atlas Park blimp! The effects of this power (including the OAS component) will suppress if you are attacked or damaged by an enemy Note: as this power doesn't actually make you intangible, it doesn't trigger (and isn't affected by) the No Phase timer Null the Gull will allow you to hide Speed Phase's pop-up tray Experimentation Pool Speed of Sound Now increases your run speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 92.5mph to 120.25mph) This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Leaping Pool Super Jump Now increases your jump speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 78.2mph to 101.8mph) This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Super Jump > Double Jump New free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick Timed toggle, 30 second duration (10s in PvP), 30 second cooldown shared with Jump Pack and Steam Jump Allows you to jump to an unlimited height and jump again mid-air Null the Gull will allow you to hide Double Jump's pop-up tray Force of Will Pool Mighty Leap Now increases your jump speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 78.2mph to 101.8mph) This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Mighty Leap > Takeoff Now increases jump speed cap by a further 10% (to 110.39mph) and boosts Mighty Leap to put you at the jump speed cap for 30 seconds Previously this bonus was just under 20%, but it now stacks with the 30% bonus from Mighty Leap Teleportation Pool Teleport Target The following changes have been made when teleporting allies only (the teleport foe component remains unchanged); Removed the 4s interrupt window, significantly speeding up the activation time Increased the recharge by 4s These two changes combined result in the total time between teleports being the same if you have no recharge buffs or enhancements - but it will much faster if you slot for (or are buffed for) recharge Teleport Base range increased from 300ft to 350ft Enhanced range (2x level 50 IOs) increased from 449.1ft to 523.95ft The post-teleport hover buff has been adjusted Now lasts up to 15s, rather than 6s The hover buff will cancel if you move, interact with an objective, attack a foe or are attacked by a foe Teleport's endurance cost is reduced by 50% while this hover buff is active, allowing you to use much less endurance when chaining teleports over long distances Activation time reduced from 2s to 1.5s The actual teleport now happens at 1.0s into the activation, rather than 1.97s into the activation This allows you slightly more time to select the location of your next teleport Location targeting has also received some improvements which also affect Teleport, see "Teleportation Targeting & /powexec_location" in the Miscellaneous section Peacebringer Energy Flight Mirrored all i27, Page 2 changes for Fly Energy Flight > Quantum Acceleration Now built into Energy Flight as a free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick Mirrored all i27, Page 2 changes for Afterburner Note that Quantum Acceleration shares a cooldown with Afterburner Combat Flight Combat Flight's defensive buff is mutually exclusive with Hover's defensive buff Quantum Flight Endurance cost reduced from 2.6/s to 0.65/s This puts the endurance cost in line with Phase Shift Quantum Maneuvers Replaces Quantum Acceleration as a picked power If you previously had Quantum Acceleration, you now have Quantum Maneuvers Note that you will also still have Quantum Acceleration as it's now built into Energy Flight Mechanically identical to Evasive Maneuvers, but prettier Note that Quantum Maneuvers cannot be active at the same time as Evasive Maneuvers White Dwarf Step The post-teleport Hover buff can now be cancelled by moving Warshade Shadow Recall Mirrored all i27, Page 2 changes for Teleport Target Shadow Step Mirrored all i27, Page 2 changes for Teleport apart from the animation time adjustment Shadow Step already has a 1.67s activation time Nebulous Form Endurance cost reduced from 2.6/s to 0.65/s This puts the endurance cost in line with Phase Shift Black Dwarf Step The post-teleport Hover buff can now be cancelled by moving Prestige & Temporary Powers Ninja Run + Beast Run + Athletic Run + Temporary Jetpacks All travel speeds remain unchanged Normalized endurance costs to 0.57/s (slightly higher than Fly at 0.46/s) These weren't consistent before - most were lower, some were higher The PvP jetpack has not been modified and still has a 2.0/s endurance cost These powers no longer benefit from global endurance discounts Rocket Board + Magic Carpet + Void Skiff No longer disables all other powers Now applies Only Affecting Self Fly speed reduced to match unslotted Fly Previously you couldn't use anything (even Swift) to increase your fly speed using these powers, so they had a slightly increased speed by default This is no longer the case, you can now stack them with other flight powers to fly at high speeds in style! Can no longer be used in the Arena Panther Travel Power Jump height and speed increased to match Coyote Travel Power More information can be found in the Travel Power Updates thread, please use that thread to discuss these changes Pool Powerset Update: Sorcery Issue 27, page 2 is bringing an overhaul to the Sorcery pool, aimed at making the pool more viable for the widest majority of builds without causing it to be too strong for high-end builds. Check out this thread for a detailed breakdown of these changes and our goals for this update. Spirit Ward This power is now a toggle which can be maintained on an allied target 0.39/s endurance cost Now provides a continually refreshing absorb shield for as long as the toggle is maintained Each tick of the absorb shield lasts for 20s, meaning it will take 20s to max out or fully refresh the shield The initial cast provides a burst of absorb shield This initial burst is the equivalent of a 10s of the refreshing absorb shield The strength of the Absorb shield now scales based on the caster's AT, rather than the target's health ie: Defenders will apply a stronger shield (this is how all other ally buffs and heals work) Cooldown reduced from 60s to 15s Arcane Bolt Cast time reduced from 2.07s to 1.73s PvE damage unchanged, PvP damage updated according to the standard formula If you own Arcane Bolt, any power or inspiration you use has a small chance to grant you an Arcane Power buff Arcane Power will immediately recharge Arcane Bolt and cause it to deal double damage Landing Arcane Bolt will consume Arcane Power (missing will not consume it) Arcane Power will dissipate after 15 seconds if it hasn't been used Arcane Power's visual effect can be customised at the tailor Note: This mechanic is disabled in PvP Mystic Flight Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph) See the "Travel Power Updates" section above for more information on this speed cap increase This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP Mystic Flight > Translocation Range increased from 300ft to 350ft Cast time reduced from 2.07s to 1.57s Endurance cost reduced from 13 to 9.75 Enflame This power is now a timed toggle with a max duration of 60s 0.52/s endurance cost Cooldown reduced from 90s to 10s Can now be used on targets in the air The patch no longer causes enemies to run out of the area, but they may still flee if they feel harassed VFX increased in size to more accurately reflect the full area of effect Fixed dark and light customization options not spawning any VFX at all Fixed numerous bugs which resulted in this power not benefiting from enhancements and procs Procs are triggered by the toggle in a radius around the target, rather than by the patches left on the ground Rune of Protection Duration reduced from 90s to 60s Cooldown reduced from 600s to 180s Now ignores all recharge buffs, enhancements, and debuffs No longer accepts recharge enhancements Buff now applies immediately when the power begins activating, instead of 1s~ into the animation Now grants damage resistance even if you use it whilst mezzed (previously only the mez protection component would be applied) Fixed an issue which prevented the continuing VFX from playing More information can be found in the Sorcery Pool Updates thread, please use that thread to discuss these changes Powers Changes Power Animation & Rooting Update Power animation time and rooting time have been decoupled - meaning that powers now decide how long they should root the character for, not the animation This greatly increases our flexibility in making adjustments to power timing, animations, and rooting, and also fixes various issues surrounding animation cancelling The following powers will now never root during their activation: Ally-targeting abilities that do not hit enemies (eg: Healing Aura, but not Twilight Grasp) Self-only abilities that do not hit enemies (eg: Build Up, but not Soul Drain) Scaling auras which do not damage enemies (eg: Invincibility, Beta Decay) The following powers will still root during their activation (and will do so more reliably): Any power that applies any kind of effect to enemies (this includes attacks as well as damage auras), apart from those mentioned above All powers that summon other entities All interruptible powers (snipes/assassinations/etc) will now root for their uninterruptible window Weapon redraw should no longer cancel attack animations In addition, many powers with excessively long cast times have been sped up (listed below) Stalker Crit Consistency Pass All Stalker Critical Hits should follow these rules (many powers had wrong chances and/or missing/incorrect crit effects): Single Target: 100% chance from Hide AoE: 50% chance from Hide PvE: 7% chance from non-Hide (before Team Size buffs) PvP: 20% chance from non-Hide (when target is Held/Slept) Detailed list of changes: Mastermind Summons & Henchmen Buffs Mastermind Henchmen Summons have had their recharge times reduced: T1 Henchmen: reduced from 60s to 5s (25s in PvP) T2 Henchmen: reduced from 90s to 10s (35s in PvP) T3 Henchmen: reduced from 120s to 15s (50s in PvP) These summon powers are no longer affected by recharge buffs or debuffs Mastermind Henchmen Summons have had their endurance costs reduced: T1 Henchmen: reduced from 19.5 end to 5.46 end T2 Henchmen: reduced from 19.5 end to 9.62 end T3 Henchmen: reduced from 19.5 end to 13.18 end Henchmen upgrade end costs have been reduced from 22.75 to 11.375 Note: This were some quick low hanging changes to help Masterminds out a bit, we are currently investigating further improvements to Masterminds for the future Inspirations Ambrosia This inspiration now applies to the caster and all henchmen (MM pets) The buff will also apply to newly summoned (or resummoned henchmen) until it expires Essence of the Earth This inspiration now applies to the caster and all henchmen (MM pets) The buff will also apply to newly summoned (or resummoned henchmen) until it expires Demon Summoning Summon Demonlings Cast time reduced from 4s to 2s Summon Demons Cast time reduced from 4s to 2s Hell on Earth Cast time reduced from 4.03s to 2.03s Summon Demon Prince Cast time reduced from 4s to 2s Assault Rifle & Mercenaries Ignite (All Versions) Cast Time reduced from 4s to 2s Full Auto (All Versions, including Henchmen) Cast Time reduced from 4s (or 6s) to 2.5s (Mercenary Commando actually took a whopping 6s before!) Stone Armor Rooted Now only applies movement debuffs while Granite Armor is also active No longer suppresses travel powers VFX has been toned down slightly as it no longer represents you being glued to the ground Granite Armor This power now disables all Flying, Running and Jumping toggle powers Ninjitsu Scrapper > Shinobi-Iri This power no longer grants movement buffs (as they would be absorbed into the new stacking mechanics) This power no longer accepts Jump, Run and Universal Travel enhancements The buff has been toned down and moved to Kuji-In Rin Stealth crit mechanic has been significantly improved Now kicks in after 8s of no combat, rather than 20s This allows the bonus to be used every encounter without requiring you to stop for 20s Stealth crit chance for single target attacks is now 65% Stealth crit chance for AoE attacks is now 30% Power icon updated Sentinel > Shinobi-Iri This power no longer grants movement buffs (as they would be absorbed into the new stacking mechanics) This power no longer accepts Jump, Run and Universal Travel enhancements The buff has been toned down and moved to Kuji-In Rin Stealth damage buff has been doubled from +20% to +40% Power icon updated Scrapper | Sentinel | Stalker > Kuji-In Rin This power now grants a small run speed and jumping buff (and as a click power, this will stack with all other movement buffs) This power now accepts Jump, Run and Universal Travel enhancements This power now accepts damage resistance sets (which will improve the psionic resistance component) Dual Pistols Hail of Bullets (All Versions) Cast time reduced from 4.17s to 2.47s Adjusted Hail of Bullets animation The text description for Dual Pistols powers have been updated for readability, if no issues are found with these descriptions, other powers will follow similar formatting Other Powers Changes Snipe Powers Fast (in-combat) snipes have had their ranges normalized to 80ft (and 100ft for Psi) Slow snipes are unaffected and retain their increased range Phase Powers The No Phase suppression window for all powers (PvE and PvP) has been reduced from 2 minutes to 90 seconds Inherent > Rest No longer has a recharge, making it easier to use at low levels No longer accepts recharge reduction enhancements It should now be a bit harder to accidentally move and interrupt Rest before it begins properly Can now be activated in the air, but you will fall to the ground once Rest is fully active Can no longer activate other powers while resting Hibernate (All Versions) This power no longer de-toggles flight powers, but will still suppress flight Sentinel > Mace Mastery > Focused Accuracy Coordinated Targeting Unlike other versions of Focused Accuracy, this power is a team buff To distinguish it from other versions of Focused Accuracy, it has been renamed to Coordinated Targeting and now has a new icon Electrical Blast > Thunderous Blast (All Versions) Cast Time reduced from 3.7s to 2.93s Radiation Emission > Choking Cloud Cast Time reduced from 3.47s to 1s Darkness Manipulation | Dark Armor > Death Shroud (All Versions) Cast Time reduced from 3.47s to 2.47s Ice Manipulation | Ice Melee > Ice Patch (All Versions) Cast Time reduced from 3.47s to 1.57s Beast Mastery > Summon Dire Wolf Cast Time reduced from 4.67s to 2s Sentinel > Bio Armor > Athletic Regulation The stance benefits of this power have been modified Note: this power always provides +3.67mph Run & +2.2mph Fly speed and -Defence resistance, only the stance bonuses have been changed Before: Defensive: 65% Resistance (-Run/-Fly) Offensive: +227.5% Run Strength & +88.7% Fly Strength Efficient: +113.75% Run Strength & +44.36% Fly Strength & 32.5% Resistance (-Run/-Fly) Now: Defensive: 40% Resistance (-Run/-Fly) (reduces the strength of speed debuffs) Offensive: +2.00mph Run Speed & +3.00mph Fly Speed (a flat increase to movement speed in and out of combat) With the always-on bonus from Athletic Regulation, this gives you a total of +5.76mph Run & +3.47mph Fly speed This is similar to Super Reflexes > Quickness, which grants +5.01mph Run & +2.93mph Fly speed Efficient: +33% Run / Fly Speed Strength (increases the strength of all your travel powers - essentially a free SO in every run / fly power) Note: The combat monitor currently lies about +Fly speed bonuses, the +numbers you see are multiplied by 1.5x before being applied to the total (base fly speed and fly speed total are both accurate) Jump Pack + Steam Jump + Double Jump Improved the reliability of the mutual exclusivity mechanics for these powers Gravity Control > Singularity Singularity will now slowly pull enemies towards it, allowing it to make much greater use of the Repel effect Temporary & Prestige Costumes (aka Halloween Costumes) These costumes are no longer mutually exclusive with stealth powers (they never provided stealth) Trick Arrow > Disruption Arrow The visual FX for this power has been changed to alleviate headaches being induced by the old VFX Due to the health implications of the old VFX, this is not an optional change Freedom Corps > Nullifier > Sonic Grenade The visual FX for this power has been changed to alleviate headaches being induced by the old VFX Story Arc Updates Barracuda Strike Force Power of Black Scorpion (the power required to kill Reichsman) is now always granted to the team leader, regardless of Archetype Defenders now receive Power of Ghost Widow Masterminds now receive Power of Captain Mako Removed broken hospital in the first mission of the Barracuda SF which caused you to get stuck outside the map The Graveyard Shift (Agent Watkins, Blueside) Intro Made a more obvious note that "Ask about available missions" bypasses the intro text when starting it organically in the 20-30 range Mission 1 (Forum Brawl) Zoombies Ambushes all reduced to 1 (From 2) More susceptible to control effects - Sleep, Hold, Stun, Immob and Confusion Slowed them down slightly Made them spawn from further away to give players a moment of reaction time Explosion damage decreased, accuracy increased, radius increased (15ft > 22ft), target cap increased (12 > 30) 1s activation added to explosion - there will not be a telegraphed animation. Added -fly to their vomit -Fly should now actually take it away instead of gifting it -Fly potency increased, duration 15s Zoombies can barf from a range of 30 (was 10) Barf animation changed to the quick projectile barf Zoombies will disappear properly whether the explosion hits or not Zoombie explosion autohits entities friendly to it AI issues resolved Zoombie backpack solved Mission 2 (Cannibal Corpses) Moved mission location to Steel Canyon Added dialog to explain that Dubstitch was the brains behind the Zoombies Added additional context mob for more flavor text Zoombie ambush should show up during, not after, the Dubstitch fight Added resistances and sonic resistance field to Dubstitch Dubstitch's Zoombies should not spawn directly on top of you I mean, in theory anyway Bring inspirations just in case! Dubstitch ambush properly functions Mission 3 (Freak Rave) Rebalanced entry mob density in front room after lobby Replaced one instance of an LT spawn with a Minion, which should make the spawns more in line in terms of expectation of difficulty Mission 4 (Investigation) Added a Bypass dialog function that will allow you to skip the entire investigation and move forward to the next mission in the Rivet For people who don't want to read, or teams of people who don't want to stand around Mission 5 (Rusty Rivet) Added additional UsePower functions for Salamander and Grey Matter (DNA Siphon and Psychic Shockwave, respectively) Added some additional dialog to the mission intro explaining Mander is Salamander Added an objective on Nav to rescue hostages Mission 6 (Pathogen) Added more lab equipment to the Pathogen fight room, made all of them throughout mission much easier to destroy Debuffed the Viral Cocktail and added an element of randomness to the power: ALWAYS: -Regen, -MaxHP, -Def No longer debuffs Max Endurance or Recovery by default. However... 10% chance every 10.5s for each of the following debuffs: -End, -Recovery, 15s -ToHit, 15s -Recharge, 15s 2.5% chance every 10.5s for... A chance to stop and vomit for a moment. Heroes get upset tummies too! To offset this change, the lab equipment will now: ALWAYS: +Regen, +MaxHP, +Def, 60s (Double what the debuff was taking away, 4x the duration of the debuff) 85% chance for: +MaxEnd, +Recovery, 40s 80% chance for: +Recharge, 40s 75% chance for: +ToHit, 40s The fires are now friendly to NOBODY and do half the previous damage, or 1/4 of the first iteration (for those keeping track) Rewrote the "I failed the timer" mission branch to the finale, including CDC Commander dialog Players should not feel miserable for failing that mission now Softened and altered Watkins' dialog to accommodate an improvement to his personality Pathogen now applies -Fly with several of their attacks Mission 7 (Finale) Cortex confuse recharge increased to 30s from 20s Souvenirs Adjusted all souvenirs to reflect changes Freakish Lab of Dr. Vahzilok (Doc Buzzsaw, Redside) Mission 3 (Vah's Lab) Fixed some hostage code errors Mission 4_1 (Council Base) Vandal No longer has Detention Field Added an occasional repel power Added an AOE Knockup power called Drill Strike Added status protection PBAoE Smashing Damage with 75% chance for Knockup All remaining powers in his toolkit have been reduced by a decent margin Coded down to Elite Boss in redside encounter (Other versions are unchanged) Fixed his KB/KD/Repel resistance only existing for 5s Changed AI and attack power priorities on Vandal Vandal should now use both his ranged and melee attacks more frequently Ranged attacks should be seen more often in rotation Drill Strike recharge lowered to 15s Mission 4_2 (Crey Lab) Hopkins Damage needs to be evaluated in teams, solo, and against various build types and ATs Coded down to Elite Boss in redside encounter (Manticore TF unchanged) Removed overlapping resistance powers Should be easier to fight now Gave in to my dark temptations anyway, so: Total Focus removed Whirling Hands removed Spinning Strike added Crushing Uppercut added Initial Strike added Changed AI and attack power priorities on Hopkins Should now use both his ranged and melee attacks more frequently Ranged attacks should be seen more often in rotation Fixed bug causing loop between just Initial Strike and Barrage Hopkins should no longer have the Street Justice combo system factoring into his attacks Tavish Bell Resistances buffed Immature Paragon Protectors Death Gas removed from their powersets within the mission Death Gas will return to their future incarnations Mission 4_3 (Bile's Hideout) TechDeck given additional insurance to not be accidentally killed before you can interrogate him PvP-Specific Changes Arena Maps Lowered the max height on the Last Bastion arena map to 1150 Animation Rooting In PvP only, all powers will only root for 75% of their total cast time Mez Protection The following powers

a thumbtack link Writing a location in chat surrounded by square brackets will generate a thumbtack link to that position They will only be considered valid if they consist of exactly three numbers, separated by spaces or commas Added the $loc chat variable which translates to your current coordinates into a clickable thumbtack link The /whereami command will now also display your current position as a thumbtack link Signature Story Arcs in LFG Signature Story Arcs are now available in the "Story Arcs" tab of the Looking For Group window Note that you will only see the Signature Story Arcs for your current alignment Enhancement Boosters & Catalysts Enhancement Boosters and Catalysts can now be applied directly by clicking on them, without using the Combine button The confirmation dialog box is optional and can be enabled or disabled from the Options window Applying an Enhancement Booster that doesn't make the Enhancement +5 will have a faster animation Teleportation Targeting & /powexec_location Added a "cursor" targeting mode to /powexec_location It behaves as if the power was activated with a click at the current mouse cursor location This will allow you to quickly activate teleport with a hotkey without needing to click Significantly improved the targeting cursor for teleportation powers and it's now much easier to reliably choose the desired destination The 'red ring of doom' should rarely appear now, and it should be almost impossible to have it fall back to the character's feet Fixed issues with two-side polygon collision that prevented the use of teleportation powers in a few places, the most notable being the outer ring of the Chantry / Storm Palace New Command: /powers_togglealloff Added a new /powers_togglealloff command which will toggle off all currently active toggle Badges Added the "Complicated" badge to Frostfire's story arc This will be granted retroactively to characters that already have the arc's souvenir Corrected the badge

Meteorologist, True Nemesis, Bodyguard, Agent Villain badges: Stone Cold, Bone Collector, Plague Carrier, Mask Maker Pocket D & Null the Gull Simplified Null the Gull's dialogue options for hiding pop-up trays All travel powers now use the same option for hiding trays Previously they all used the same flag, but presented as different dialog options - this was fine when only Origin pools had pop-up powers and you could only ever have one With the standard travel powers gaining pop-up powers it was necessary to simplify this Removed alignment warning boxes from the elevators The exit to Winter Forest is now marked on the minimap Atlas Park & Mercy Island Enemies in Atlas Park and Mercy Island should no longer reproduce like rabbits and spawn in on top of players User Interface "Current Absorb" can now be monitored in the combat attributes window Power details screens should no longer mix up PvP and PvE attributes Changed the wording of defense and defense debuff attributes in power details screens so players can more accurately distinguish between them Improved the readability of power descriptions with the addition of paragraphing and text colours to break up the information PvP IO recipes can no longer be sold to vendors Bug Fixes The inter-dimensional Katana and Bow thief has finally be caught and brought to justice! (fixed Katanas and Bows frequently being invisible to other players) Improved the validation of certain chat links; things like [Recipe:Boresight] or [Salvage:Tactics] will no longer be considered valid Fixed "Medium Arcane Supergroup Banner 1", "Medium Tech Supergroup Banner 1" texture issue Fixed the Merit vendor display name for Encouraged Accuracy: To Hit Buff (Recipe) Fixed malformed .fx file causing debug client errors ("FXGEO: Failed to alloc a child fx") when drawing a katana Fixed an issue which allowed multiple emotes to be combined to trigger NPC-only animations and VFX Fixed Veluta Lunata's story arcs requiring the Pirate badge in Ouroboros (this requirement was removed from the non-Ouroboros version of the arc a long time ago) Made another attempt at fixing the Duray encounter in Admiral Sutter's Task Force Fixed a non-existent version of Ouroborus appearing in the /search map list instead of the real version Removed incorrect message about mastermind pets in Recharge Intensive sets These enhancements previously stated these sets couldn't be slotted in Mastermind pets - this has never been the case Costume Fixes Fixed "Lebeaux" top not tinting correctly for "Robotic Arm 1" and "Robotic Arm 3" Fixed Arachnos Soldier "Wolf Collar" from interfering with ear selection when "Wolf" helmet style is selected Restored "Wolf 2" collar option Fixed "Praetorian Police" boot option for males not appearing in asymmetry mode for the right boot Fixed missing texture on "Impervium Katana" for Dual Blade models Fixed Huge 'Cyborg 1' Asymmetric Shoulder Pad Adjusted Female 'Fashion Tight' boots to lessen clipping around knees while standing and walking Map Fixes Various geometry fixes in the following zones: Kings' Row The Hive The Hollows Skyway City Terra Volta Eden Peregrine Island Pocket D Dark Astoria Siren's Call Grandville Dark Astoria (Echo) Rikti Crash Site (Echo) Storm Palace: Closed holes in the collision boundary of the zone Renamed a warehouse door in Kallisti Wharf to fix issues with CityZone Any Warehouse missions breaking co-op teams Powers Bug Fixes The following Enhancements should no longer be weaker when hitting higher level enemies: Impervious Skin Numina's Convalescence Sentinel's Ward Miracle Aegis Dominating Grasp Enhancements > Power Transfer > Chance to Heal Self: Should be able to stack when slotted in multiple passive powers regardless of server timing Enhancements > Overwhelming Force > Knockback to Knockdown: Fixed this proc not always converting to knockdown when stacked with other knockback effects Prestige > Athletic Run: Icon no longer continuously flashes Various > Electric Blast > Thunderous Blast (All Versions): Fixed a bug where the two chances for -end were not doing independent chance checks) Various > Radiation Blast > Radioactive Assault > Proton Volley (All versions): Fixed a bug where these powers were doing 20% less than intended damage in PvP Various > Shield Defense > Phalanx Fighting (All Versions): Fixed a bug that caused the self buff in this power to be intermittent Various > Titan Weapons (All versions): Fixed a bug with some Titan Weapon powers starting Momentum too early, most notably Crushing Blow Various > Trick Arrow > Glue Arrow (All versions): Fixed the short help text (for reals this time) Various > Dark Servant > Twilight Grasp: Fixed a bug where this power was doing -damage instead of -regen in PvE Pool > Fighting > Cross Punch: Fixed critical damage values Pool > Fighting > Boxing: Fixed this power missing it's 35% synergy chance for stun in PvP Pool > Leaping > Spring Attack: Reimplemented this power with new tools, should address some odd bugs with this power Pool > Speed > Burnout: Fixed this power causing toggles to flicker when activated Blaster > Electricity Manipulation > Dynamo: Fixed a bug where this power would do damage to the caster Blaster > Ninja Training > Shinobi:: Fix critical proc not working while exemplared Blaster > Temporal Manipulation > Time Wall: Fixed this power not accepting Blaster, Ranged Damage and Universal Damage sets Fixed this power using melee damage modifiers instead of ranged damage modifiers (damage has increased slightly as a result) Blaster > Mace Mastery > Summon Spiderlings: Fixed an error in the power description that claimed you required 2 powers to acquire (only one power is required) Brute > Regeneration > Fast Healing: This version of the power should no longer ignore healing enhancements Corruptor > Dual Pistol > Hail of Bullets: Fixed a on bug on this version of the power that made chemical ammunition have a lower chance to do damage than intended Dominator > Electricity Assault > Static Discharge: Should no longer list Endurance Modification enhancements twice Dominator > Savage Assault > Spot Prey: The perception buff on this power was lasting only 0.75s instead of 10s, this has been corrected Dominator > Psionic Mastery > World of Confusion: Fixed this power triggering Controller Overpower instead of Domination Mastermind > Beast Mastery > Summon Dire Wolf: Fixed a bug where this power was never actually playing the summoning animation Mastermind > Beast Mastery > Summon Lions: Fixed a bug where this power was never actually playing the summoning animation Sentinel > Bio Armor > Genomic Evolution: Fixed a bug which prevented the Offensive Adaptation range bonus from applying Sentinel > Ice Armor > Frigid Shield: This power should no longer detoggle when mezzed Sentinel > Mace Mastery > Focused Accuracy: This power should no longer detoggle when mezzed Stalker > Fiery Melee > Fire Sword Circle: Fixed this power now granting Assassin's Focus Stalker > Ice Melee > Assassin's Ice Sword: This power's stealth bonus damage should no longer be resisted in PvP Stalker > Ice Melee > Frozen Aura: Fixed this power now granting Assassin's Focus Stalker > Rad Melee > Radiation Siphon: Power had the wrong level requirement.

  4. Halloween Event The Black Whip has been downgraded from Monster-class stats to Archvillain-class. As a result it will no longer drop reward merits when defeated. Fixed Sinister Summoner badge art not displaying properly on low graphics settings.
  5. PvP Powers Changes These changes will not be going live in this patch - they are for testing only. Please provide your feedback if you would or would not like to see these changes go live! All travel power speed cap increases from Issue 27, Page 2 now also apply in PvP Modified the PvP diminishing return curves for travel speeds for testing purposes SpeedRunning set to 0.45, SpeedFlying set to 0.60, SpeedJumping set to 0.45 Sorcery > Arcane Bolt / Arcane Power Arcane Power can now trigger in PvP (Known Bug, it still isn't doing this) Damage bonus in PvP is 50% of the base damage rather than 100% Fortunata Hypnosis (IO proc): PvP placate effect reduced from 5.336s to 4s This puts it in line with the Presence pool's Pacify, which also does 8s PvE and 4s PvP Electrical Affinity: Rejuvenating Circuit: Increased the Main Target heal to do an extra 0.41 scale in PvP only. This makes the main target get the equivalent of a 1.96 scale heal (same as Heal Other from Empathy). The chain heal still works off of the 1.55 scale heal, so no change for the healing of secondary targets. Faraday Cage: Increased the duration of PvP-only effects to 20s (up from 5s). This includes mez protection, mez resistance, kb protection and repel protection. The other effects (PvE and Both) still use 5s. This increase in duration is to allow PvPers to have more time outside of the faraday cage bubble before wearing off. Faraday Cage: Decreased the activation period from 1 second to 0.2 second. The faster rate should allow for the Faraday Cage buffs to apply more quickly/reliably when moving through the Faraday Cage bubble. Note: This does not affect Static build up, that will still use a 5s activation period. Defibrillate: Reduced the Endurance Drain to half. Super Reflexes PvP tweaks (All ATs): Lowered the activation period of powers with scaling resistance from 2s to 0.5s (all ATs) Increased PvP Elusivity in Focused Fighting, Focused Senses and Evasion to 30%. Added Toxic Resistance to all scaling resistance powers (all ATs) Bug Fix: Corrected Brute's Evasion elusivity duration. It was set to 0.75s when it was supposed to be 2.25s. This resulted in AoE elusivity dropping out between each 2s tick application. EMP Arrow PvP tweaks: Increased the duration of all PvP effects to 20s (up from 0.65s). This will allow players to buff themselves inside the EMP field, then exit for up to 20s of protection. These effects only include the following: Resistance to Mez, Teleport Protection to Mez, Knock, and Repel Power Surge and Unstoppable PvP tweaks (All ATs): Removed the HP crash Added Psionic Resistance (2.45 scale). The amount of psionic resistance is 35% of what the T9 typically gives to other damage types. Granite Armor PvP tweaks (All ATs): Added Psionic Resistance (1.75 scale). The amount of psionic resistance is 35% of what Granite Armor gives to other damage types. Singularity's Gravitation Pull: Set a PvEOnly flag on the pull effect that requires Player targets. This should prevent pulling in PvP, but allow critters who summon a Singularity to still utilize the power on players in PvE. Toxic Web Grenade: Set the stacking on the -Recharge effect to kReplace in PvP. This will still stack in PvE.
  6. Halloween Event The Halloween event is here! Trick or Treating has been enabled in all city zones (note: you need to be in a zone that matches your level in order to trick-or-treat), along with the Whispered Rumor tip mission Dr. Kane’s House of Horror is available in the Holiday tab of the LFG window Both the Zombie Apocalypse and the Deadly Apocalypse are upon us! The Halloween vendors (Malkiel Ivesse in Atlas Park, Annah in Croatoa, Granny Beldam in Nerva Archipelago, Acantha in Imperial City) have stocked up with goodies to trade for your salvage Atlas Park has received a seasonal makeover The event will be active for four weeks, and will end during maintenance on November 2nd Eternal Night will only be active for the first (October 5th-12th) and last (October 26th - November 2nd) weeks of the event; the normal day/night cycle will be restored for the interim period. Changes for 2021 Dr Kane's House of Horror: The Black Whip bonus encounter has been revamped a bit and now rewards the badge Sinister Summoner. Bug Fixes Fixed the Brickstown Prison Break event, which wasn't spawning enough Prisoners to complete.
  7. General This patch is being fast-tracked to Live to support the Cimerora Contest for Mission Architect. Because it's being fast-tracked, it doesn't include some of the cheats that you're used to seeing in Brainstorm, such as the Freebies Menu and all recipes being free of Salvage costs. Those will return after this patch is promoted to Live, hopefully as early as next Tuesday. Mission Architect Map changes: Cimerora - Battle Map: split into front, middle and back regions. Cimerora - Castellum Quarter: newly released map. Cimerora - Sybil Temple: split into front, middle and back regions. Cimerora - Vespillos Pass: newly released map. Added the following critters and enemy groups to Architect: Angry Citizens (1-5) Cimerorans (35-54): Immunes Surgeon, Peasant, Sybil, Marcus Valerius, Sister Airlia, Sister Valeria Cimeroran Beasts (35-54): Minotaur (four versions), Cyclops (four versions) Cimeroran Traitors (35-54): Immunes Surgeon Cimeroran Traitors (50-54) Civilian (1-54): Alexis Cole-Duncan, Emperor Marcus Cole Decaying Eidolons (29-54) Diabolique Spirit (50-54): Shadow Lord, Shadow Mistress, Shadow Demon Pandora's Might (40-50) Praetorian Police (1-24): Cole's Clone (two versions) Prisoners (30-38) The Cabal (25-34): Sprite Tyrant Follower (50-54): Olympian Guard, Tyrant (50-54) UPA (30-54) Added contacts from Dark Astoria: Captain Nolan, Dream Doctor, Ephram Sha, Heather Townshend, Maharaj, Max, Midnight Loremaster, Mu'Vorkan, Praetor Duncan Added contact from Cimerora: Sister Solaris Renamed "Carnie" enemy group to "Carnival of Shadows". Made some changes to the arc validation to prevent published story arcs from being invalidated by these changes. Arcs that have not been published yet may still become invalid, or have certain parts of it change; please double-check your arcs before publishing.
  8. General This is a support patch for the Cimerora Contest for Mission Architect. Please check that thread for more information! Mission Architect Map changes: Cimerora - Battle Map: split into front, middle and back regions. Cimerora - Castellum Quarter: newly released map. Cimerora - Sybil Temple: split into front, middle and back regions. Cimerora - Vespillos Pass: newly released map. Added the following critters and enemy groups to Architect: Angry Citizens (1-5) Cimerorans (35-54): Immunes Surgeon, Peasant, Sybil, Marcus Valerius, Sister Airlia, Sister Valeria Cimeroran Beasts (35-54): Minotaur (four versions), Cyclops (four versions) Cimeroran Traitors (35-54): Immunes Surgeon Cimeroran Traitors (50-54) Civilian (1-54): Alexis Cole-Duncan, Emperor Marcus Cole Decaying Eidolons (29-54) Diabolique Spirit (50-54): Shadow Lord, Shadow Mistress, Shadow Demon Pandora's Might (40-50) Praetorian Police (1-24): Cole's Clone (two versions) Prisoners (30-38) The Cabal (25-34): Sprite Tyrant Follower (50-54): Olympian Guard, Tyrant (50-54) UPA (30-54) Added contacts from Dark Astoria: Captain Nolan, Dream Doctor, Ephram Sha, Heather Townshend, Maharaj, Max, Midnight Loremaster, Mu'Vorkan, Praetor Duncan Added contact from Cimerora: Sister Solaris Renamed "Carnie" enemy group to "Carnival of Shadows" for consistency with "Carnival of Light", "Canival of Vengeance" and "Carnival of War". Made some changes to the arc validation to prevent published story arcs from being invalidated by these changes. Arcs that have not been published yet may still become invalid, or have certain parts of it change; please double-check your arcs before publishing. Powers The power "Energized Shield" that most Cimeroran critters should have was accidentally removed during a previous patch. It has been restored, with a bit of a naming shuffle: "Energized Shield" actually had the effects of the power "Phalanx Fighting" from Shield Defense, so it has been renamed to match that. Cimerorans also had a "Phalanx Fighting" power which was just a basic self defense auto, so it has been renamed to "Roman Armor". There were no changes to the actual powers, just the names. Cimerorans have the exact same powers they had from their release until Issue 24, besides the name changes.
  9. As per i27p2 patch notes Beta Decay is named as an example of powers which should no longer root due to the power causing no damage to mobs. However the Blaster 2' Atomic Manipulation power of the same name seems to have been missed with this change. Brute and Tanker versions appear to be WAI [Scrapper too I would assume but I don't have one], however still getting a brief root effect when checking on a couple of blasters I have with AM as 2'.
  10. Powers Sorcery > Arcane Bolt / Arcane Power Activating and deactivating toggles will no longer grant Arcane Power Removed the "...crackle at your fingertips" combat log message, this was mainly for testing purposes Removed the "ARCANE POWER" floating message With the VFX and yellow ring around Arcane Bolt, the added floating message was overkill as it kept triggering if you didn't make use of the proc Inherent > Walk Movement speed cap adjusted from 3.15mph to 3.25mph (to match NPC walking speed) Jumping speed cap increased to 14.32mph (the base jumping speed) Miscellaneous Removed Arachnos ambushes from delivery missions to Mercy Island in the Temple of the Waters SF Removed Malta ambush from delivery missions to Mercy Island in Vernun von Grun's story arc. Removed Crey ambush from door mission to Mercy Island in Operative Grillo's story arc. Renamed the Shopkeeper badge to Proprietor (as Shop Keeper already exists as a day job badge) The Lady Grey Task Force The minimum level to start the TF has been changed to 45 We've had it at 35 for a while, but there are numerous issues related to starting it at lower levels (on live the minimum was 45) All enemies in the TF (including the Weakened Hamidon and its buds) can now spawn from level 45 to 54 Paladin Event Reverted the Paladin Event to the pre-Issue 24 version; you have to prevent the Paladin from being built by defeating waves of Clockwork The event runs the same as it did on Issue 23, with two changes: The Clockwork support mobs are level-less in order to reward XP and drops The timer to win the event was reduced to 10 minutes, and the Paladin Construction heals to full in 5 minutes. Note: The workaround for spawning new copies of Kings Row to fix the old event has been removed Arena You can no longer begin observing an arena match if you had any combat activity in the past 10 seconds Arena Observer / Gladiator modes will now automatically kill all pets on entry (certain pets could still be summoned when entering an arena match) Pocket D DJ Zero has added some additional entrances to the club An Atlas Park entrance has been added to the Hero-side lobby Mercy Island and Nova Praetoria entrances have been added to the Villain-side lobby The minimap has been updated to reflect these changes (and also include the Tiki Lounge, Monkey Fight Club and Architect Entertainment areas) Bug Fixes Firebase Zulu: Closed holes in the collision boundary of the zone The Chantry: Closed holes in the collision boundary of the zone Echo Plaza: Added a collision boundary around the zone to fix issues with teleportation powers Talos Island: A number of floating rocks and bushes have been brought back to the ground The Paragon City Hall has issued its monthly statement reminding Gravity Control heroes that this isn't funny Cleaned up some unintended behaviour with the Fortunata Hypnosis proc Fixed the geometry of certain Goldbrickers NPCs that had a major hole in their neck Fixed the animation of Tech Generator objects inside missions using the tech base lair so it animates properly Fixed the Ally Revive script used in the Brickstown story arcs Fixed an issue with Cognitive and Spectral Interface Procs This was a bug introduced last year when Interface DoT procs got fixed It turned out that the procs were missing the tag needed to turn on the effect group Ambrosia and Essence of the Earth inspirations should now be usable even if the player is under Untouchable state Henchmen in Untouchable state, if any, will still see no benefit from these inspirations EMP Arrow: Possibly fixed a bug that made procs use the unintended pseudopet formula instead of the original click formula Fixed a bug that would cause Orbital Lance (from War Walkers) to never fire Fixed the glowing VFX on Rikti weaponry not scrolling properly (this has been broken since Issue 10)

  17. I pretty much only play CoH in my spare time, so I'm not sure if it's my PC or the game. After the last patch, I've gotten freezes in the game. It is pretty often with my corr when too many sounds are triggered at once, but now also at random times like when loading or just fighting 1-2 adds on other alts like my blaster. The freeze will last 30-60 seconds, after which everything goes back to normal. The other complication is that I installed a new SSD, so I'm not sure if that affects anything. Note that my CoH folder is *not* on the new SSD which is purely for data.

scales by enemy combat level Several enhancements were granting less of an increase than they should Specifically, the endurance reduction portion of some non-superior sets was too low (scale 0.5 instead of scale 0.625) and all three parts of the superior ones were slightly too low (0.6162 or 0.6167 instead of 0.625) Full list of impacted enhancements:

  21. Speed Phase remained active after entering a mission with an auto-exemplar effect. Was unable to disable Speed Phase after entering a Mayhem mission from Lord Schweinzer. Auto exemped for the Atlas Park mission from level 41 with all toggles running [including SS and Speed Phase] and when inside the mission all toggles expected to disable did except Speed Phase which remained active and inaccessible for disabling without exiting the mission. Even after exiting the mission Speed Phase remained active despite SS not running. Other missions were fine due to what level SS was taken however toons that take SS later would possibly have the same problem in other missions that have exemplaring occur in this way [Ouro into arcs possibly for example].
  22. Unsure how much this might be a bug but thought to make a mention of it anyway. Despite various objects in Mayhem Missions being targets and destructible [cars, bus stops, cardboard boxes, letter boxes, etc] players cannot run through them with Speed Phase active as they can vs mobs and other entities in game.
