  1. Hey Everlasting! Come Saturday, August 20th the Sekhem-Sa will be hosting a Bio Contest in Echo Plaza with over a billion inf in prizes! Yes! Distill your character's entire life story down into 1024 characters or less and potentially win free money! The Sekhem-Sa is a gothic roleplaying group, a sanctuary for the lost, damned, persecuted, and outcast: our members include vampires, werewolves, librarians, monsters, and praetorian war machines among other things. Roleplaying is not needed to participate but we will be IC during the event and we encourage you to come out, meet new people and have fun! There will also be a side costume contest that will run concurrently to the Bio Contest, no need to set up a separate area as all entrees to the main event will automatically be considered for their costume for MORE free money. No need to stress about one or the other if you want to participate, just dress how you like and enjoy! (Here's a screenshot from our first Bio contest about a year ago!)
  2. Broken Hearts Fightclub Tournament Where: Excelsior Pocket D When: February 12th, 3pm EST/2pm CST Fightclub Discord: https://discord.gg/Ym2vQAjb For any questions or concerns please reach out to @Madvillain or @CR Mochi. (Updated Date due to Super Bowl conflict) Melee Fight Club Tournament! This is a tournament for melee 1v1. All fights will be in melee range - no running or jumping around, it's up close and personal. The match will start, and both players will begin fighting until one of them drops. Prizes Pot: 5.5 Billion Influence 1st - 50% of pot + 3000 merits + Unique Gold Title 2nd - 25% of pot + 1500 merits + Unique Runner Up Title 3rd - 15% of pot + 1000 merits 4th - 10% of pot + 500 merits There will also be raffles between rounds for merits, influence, pvp/very rare IOs, and more! Raffle includes EVERY VERY RARE and PVP IO SET! That's 100+ IOs, every participant guaranteed a prize! Influence is community sourced and may be adjusted. Current pot value 5.5B influence. Participation To participate, please post in this thread with your global name. Final character selections will be due on February 12th @12EST to give time to get brackets in order. Final selection only requires character name, not build. I would recommend not posting your power sets to avoid being countered. While each participant is limited to one character, you may use multiple builds for the same character. Rules The tournament will consist of 5 round-robin style, randomly selected matches. Win = 3pts Tie = 1pt Loss = 0pts After the round-robin, the top 4 scoring players will advance to a seeded bracket-style final four. Allowed ATs -Scrapper -Brute -Tanker -Stalker -VEATs -HEATs Allowed Incarnates -Alpha -Interface -Hybrid Passive (Hybrid slotted but not clicked to be active) Restricted Powers For various reasons, mostly stalling, these powers will not be allowed in this tournament. -Leviathan Mastery Hibernate -Phase Shift Pets are allowed and can be attacked. Players are allowed to strafe around in order to get pets in range of cones/aoes so long as they remain within melee range. Match Set Up Fights take place on Cage map. Round robin will consist of 10-minute timed matches. First kill wins and ends the match. Fight starts on pvp timer countdown. Failure to engage within the first 20s will result in a loss for the round. (Stalkers/VEATs can hide but must engage by 20s). Finals matches will have the fight timer extended to 15 mins. NO INSPIRATIONS. Tie-Break Rules Ties in the round-robin will award each player 1pt, Sudden Death mode is not counted. If there is a score tie to enter the finals, who advances will be determined by comparing the totals of each players defeated opponents. Ties in the finals matches will be decided by Sudden Death mode. *There will be reasonable judgement of abuse. If a player swaps to a build obviously meant solely to stall to an SD mode victory in the final rounds, it will result in a DQ.* Remember to post your global in this thread to be added to the participants list! Hope to see you there!
  3. (EDIT: tl/dr: A great way to make consistent bank, no matter how often you play a given alt, is to put in a bid for 10x a yellow recipe that doesn't require rare salvage as the last thing you do before logging off. First thing you do when next logging on is collect them and put in bids on your salvage. Play and you should have bought your salvage by the end of your game session. Collect salvage, craft, play some rare roulette, and post your items. Put in a bid for 10x yellow recipe. Repeat ad infinitum.) So, I decided to start a new alt, explore Praetoria, and document a solo path from zero to a billion inf in detail, and not at a breakneck pace. I expect to demonstrate a lot of ways to accumulate inf without spending very much effort and to do it in real time. I think a lot of this will be old news to long-time readers of this forum, but I hope someone finds it useful So welcome Miss Terrigen 1.1, a mutant Poison/Radiation Blast Defender. After running through the tutorial, I ended up on the streets of Nova Praetoria at level 2 with nothing but the wings on my back, 25 information in my pocket, and two large inspirations in my, um, I'm actually not sure where I'm keeping those. So they've got to go: open up /AH and post them each for 5 inf and BAM there's my seed money. Since I heard a rumor on a Reddit board, I decide to look up Ancient Artifacts and see how they are trading. Color me surprised to see that there are over 10mm for offer and zero bids. I'm no evil genius (in this incarnation) but I realize that I'm pretty likely to buy me some common salvage if I'm willing to put some bids in. Since I'm not greedy, let's bid 55 inf a piece for as many as I can carry, then do some work for Praetor Barry White. A few missions later, I'm dinging level 4 and going to the vendor to sell my inventory of ancient artifacts, then refill my bids for more. You can repost them on the AH as well, but I'd rather take the sure money right away from the vendor. Don't forget that when you open the vendor window, you can right click on the stack (I think it was 124 deep at this point) and sell the entire stack at once. So, I've quadrupled my initial stake, and I'm going to keep doing this while I go pick some roses. Soon I ding 5, get a new contact, clean out my inventory again and now I've got low six figures of inf. Let's try out something else that I wrote a guide about a long time ago and see if anyone is selling any cheap SOs. So I set filters on the AH for levels 40 to 54, click the For Sale toggle, and I'm bidding on any accuracy and damage SOs available. Again, since I'm not greedy, I'm bidding at 10k a piece. Let's give people a little love, right? I can sell all for them for about a 5k profit, so we're good. At this point, I'm going to invest a little bit in myself at the P2W vendor or whatever it is called. Spend 10k on Reveal, 5k on a jetpack, get Athletic Run and decide to pick up Inner Inspiration as well. The last is another great way to get seed money -- every 30 minutes you get three medium or large inspirations. The larges are generally good for at least a few thousand inf in the AH. I'm not sure how long I've been playing now, certainly well under an hour. I'm going to log, but before I do I put in bids on three recipes at 10x apiece (I'll reveal names and prices next episode). I've got 340,939 inf left over, and I hate leaving that unused. Remembering that brainstorm ideas trade at 20:1 for a rare salvage, I put in bids for enough to buy one rare salvage worth and hopefully make a small profit. Until next time!
  4. im just looking for a good build for a spines/fire brute just to farm influence and regular content. thank you very much.

  14. Upon reaching 50, if you exemplar down with XP on and Double Influence While Exemplared turned on, patrol XP appears to provide a boost to the influence gained (presumably due to the conversion from EXP), but is not itself used up, meaning even a sliver of patrol XP will grant the bonus forever. It seems like the intent would be for the patrol XP to be used up in providing the extra EXP that's converted to Inf. This behavior is suspected to be an interaction between Veteran Level code and Level 50 XP mechanics that would not have occurred on Live. Reproduction steps: Take a level 50 character with no patrol EXP, set difficulty to +4, and enter an AE mission clamped to level 53 (such as arc 2915, $Comic Con Fire Farm$). This will exemplar you to level 49. Kill an enemy and note the Inf gained. A boss should give around 85-90k. Exit the mission, and log out briefly. A couple minutes should be enough. Log back in, verifying that you have patrol EXP. Record your Patrol XP total, and re-enter the mission. Kill an enemy and note the Inf gained. A boss should give around 115k. Note your current patrol XP total, which has not gone down. (If desired) Finish the mission, noting that you get the extra Inf from all mobs, despite having only a small amount of Patrol XP.
  15. Background for readers who may not be aware: Because of the way Enhancement Converters can be used to speculate using the conversion system the players who work to make money at Wentworth's are able to hoard Enhancements that would otherwise be lowering the price on the auction house. This is likely to continue to happen, and as more Influence enters the economy (from defeating bad guys) this will drive inflation. One way the moderators were able to forestall a rapid runaway market was to seed the auction house with cheap common and uncommon salvage before opening to the public. (This is why there are ten million or so of every common salvage available for $1 000 each.) What happened earlier this month: As you are no doubt aware, there is consistent demand for the special Luck of the Gambler Enhancement that reduces global recharge. The price has been consistently dropping (to about $7-8 million), which was making them affordable for "regular" players. Then someone purchased all of them from the auction house and relisted them all for $12 000 000. This kept the market from making the Enhancements available to non-speculators. Problems in dealing with this: There are several things the moderators could do to address the issue. My personal thought is that there are fundamental flaws in how the Influence and Invention systems currently operate, and a larger conversation about how the in-game economy should work is merited. Barring that, just deciding to seed the "usual suspects" of Enhancements at some fixed market rate isn't going to do enough. Just like in real life some humans actually enjoy amassing wealth. I liked playing around on the auction house, then I found out that Enhancement Converters were being used to speculate. In a way this is a good thing, you know, since we don't have enough active accounts on 24/7 to fill the large demand perfectly calculated builds require. In another way this leads to levels of wealth that the system was not designed to accommodate. This game has an Influence cap and experience with other games says that seeding high end useful items will just turn those items into a different way to store any Influence you earned in excess of the cap. The hoarding will get worse as the items now have a guaranteed value they can store long-term in abundance. (For an example, see what happened on Team Fortress 2 with buds. Though in that case an economist actually suggested adding them so that exact thing could happen.) Trying to seed the auction house with Recipes instead seems like a practical idea, but that just shifts where the distortions happen (onto Rare Salvage), although this sort of stopgap is practical, and helps to influence players from speculation on those Enhancements, other recipes will be affected because they happen to share the same Rare ingredient. To summarize: Allow players that aren't trying to speculate on the auction house to buy what they're trying to buy. That means altering the @#$%^&*~! economy.
