  1. Eco-Friendly Powerset Recycling So! one of the biggest issues with creating new powersets is the difficulty faced introducing new assets to the game, which is why many of the newer powersets are created from existing assets that are already used in other powersets (Such as Savage Assault, Ninja Training and Radiation Melee). In order to produce new powersets, it seems most likely that they would be created from what we have already, which is why we've seen many more Manipulation and Assault sets than any others (since they are mostly formed from existing powers). So with that in mind, I was pondering what other powersets could be engineered from the assets already available, effectively 'recycling' them into new forms. I had a couple of crude ideas that I've listed below, they are in no way a working product, more a proof of concept that could hopefully inspire a new arsenal of powersets that could be introduced in one way or the other. The aim of the game is to use as much existing material as I could, so they would seem plausible to implement at the least, and entirely possible at the most. Earth Blast (Now in Game!) You are able to upheave and project stone to powerful effect! Earth Blast focuses on a mixture of smashing and fire damage, and many attacks have a chance to stun your foes. - Stone Spears: Taken directly from Earth Assault. This power fits nicely for a simple single-target damage attack - Lava Blast: A power belonging to the Minions of Igneous, hurling lava that deals high fire DoT - Shards of Stone: A power belonging to the Talons of Vengeance Prophetess/Sibyl/Oracle of Earth, firing rocky shards in a cone. - Basalt Bomb: Another power belonging to the Minions of Igneous, hurling a ball of magma that explodes and deals high fire DoT. - Hurl Boulder: Taken from Earth Assault/Stone Melee. A good short range/high damage attack that was a nice fit. - Upthrust: A power belonging to the Talons of Vengeance Prophetess/Sibyl/Oracle of Earth. delivering smashing damage in an AoE, with a lethal DoT effect and chance to knockdown. - Ryolite: Another Minions of Igneous power, holds a foe and deals moderate fire DoT - Fissure: Another Earth Assault power. Fissure acts a nice ability later in the set with close range and high damage. - Meteor: Another unique Talons of Vengeance power. We remove the special NPC mechanics, and focus on the superior smashing damage, moderate fire DoT, and a chance to stun or knockback. Earth Manipulation (Now in Game!) You can manipulate the earth to contain and control your enemies, while bringing rocks crashing down upon them. - Stone Prison: Taken from Earth Control. This power suits just fine for the single target immobilize as you may expect. - Stone Fist: Taken from Stone Melee. This works as the first melee attack available. - Fossilize: Again taken from Earth Control. Just like many manipulation sets, the inclusion of a single target hold also seemed fitting. - Build Up: A standard Build Up power as expected. - Tremor: Taken from Stone Melee. This power works as a nice AoE melee attack as seen in other Manipulation sets. - Mud Bath: A modified version of Mud Pots. This power also grants endurance recovery and health regeneration to the player. - Fault: Taken from Stone Melee. This power works as a nice control power that has no damage. - Ash Fall: Another power belonging to the Talons of Vengeance Prophetess/Sibyl/Oracle of Earth, functioning much like Snow Storm - Seismic Smash: Taken from Stone Melee. This power works perfectly as a high damage melee attack with mez capability. Throwing Blades You are trained with deadly throwing blades, armed with an assortment of martial weaponry to attack your foes from afar. - Shuriken Throw: Taken from Martial Assault. This fits well for the low damage/quick recharge attack. - Throwing Dagger: An NPC power used by a multitude of enemies, ideal for a moderate damage ranged attack. - Trick Shot: Taken directly from Martial Assault. this ability works well as a nice AoE ability. - Shrapnel Shuriken: A renamed version of Weapon Mastery's Exploding Shuriken. This works as a basic AoE power. - Aim: Your basic blast set 'Aim' power. - Masterful Throw: Also taken from Martial Assault. This works perfectly as a snipe ability. - Fan of Blades: NPCs like Chance McKnight have a similar ability called 'Shurikens', which is a cone version of the standard Shuriken power. Though I would perhaps give it the Eviscerate/Ripper animation. - Explosive Shuriken: Taken from Martial Assault. this power works well as a low-range/high-damage attack - Blade Storm: The T9 for this set would likely be a mix of projectiles thrown in all directions, likely using the same animation as Typhoon's Edge. Other sets in this thread: Primaries (Blast, Control, Melee, Henchmen) Secondaries (Manipulation, Assault, Armor, Support) Ancillaries If you want to submit your own idea for a powerset here, then the thread is open to you! Just remember that the goal of this discussion is to bring forward new ideas by reusing the old. We're not strictly looking at numbers here, it's all about how you can construct new powersets by using what's already provided in game, which falls into three categories; Using existing powers. This is the most preferable way of designing powersets here in the thread. If you can use existing player powers in your suggestion, then that's perfect! If you'd also like to re-use 'new' powers suggested in this thread, those are fine too. Modifying NPC powers. While not as easy to work with as player powers, taking NPC powers not yet accessible to the players is another great way of building a new powerset. Try not to change too much, though! Reusing in-game assets. The most difficult thing when creating new powers isn't the numbers, it's the FX and animations. If you can find suitable FX or animations to help create 'new' powers, then that's just about all you need. With that in mind, try to consider the following too; If you can find suitable power icons, use them! The best way to help visualise the function of your powerset is to illustrate it with power icons. If you're reusing old powers, these should be readily available, but for anything else a 'best fit' is just as good. Try to get your powerset to follow the design of others. While not all powersets are identical, most of them have a vague structure about them that helps serve as a guide to what they should look like. Consider what your powerset brings to the table. While we're not delving into the complexities of numbers and balance, it's always good to consider the mechanics of your powers, including new things like combo systems and building charges. Weapons and pets are hard, but not impossible! If you want to submit a powerset that uses weapons or pets, try to think of what in-game models exist to support it. For Masterminds, consider what the basic and upgraded henchmen may look like. Ancillaries are welcome too. I recently opened up this thread to the creation of ancillary powers, so if you have ideas for those, feel free to post them! Reusing existing powers is preferable for all powersets, but doubly so for ancillaries. Try to keep the concept flexible. Powersets should be open to all kinds of character themes, so try to avoid making it too niche. There's a few exceptions like Demon Summoning and Beam Rifle that are arguably focused on one origin or another, but that's where I would draw the line. Don't feel somebody else beat you to it! If you have an idea for a powerset, but somebody else has created something similar, you are still welcome to submit your own version of it.
  2. My main on Live was RooGirl, an MA/Regen scrapper, and I'm currently having fun recreating her. I know it's not the OP combo it used to be, but it's my fun build, with stealth and other extraneous toys. I'm also playing a fire/fire tanker with my mom, we used to play together on Live and we're having fun with it again. I'd like to play something completely other than melee DPS, which is what I always gravitate to in MMOs, because most of them don't have the flexibility of CoH's power system. Something that's great at soloing and would also have utility in the endgame/TFs/etc. No MM, because while they're fun, they're fiddlier than I want. I'm thinking along the lines of blaster or controller, but open to almost anything other than brutes, stalkers, tankers, etc. I'm asking for advice largely because there are so many more powersets now, I'm kind of paralyzed by choice. So if there's a combo you particularly like, and it's a strong soloer, tell me about it. I don't need to solo AVs or crazy numbers of +2s, just a fun soloing experience. I'm also looking forward to creating a costume concept around a brand new AT/powerset. Thanks for your suggestions!
  3. Hello once again. I decided to do a new powerset proposal, It's another melee set that I always had for months however I found difficulty at finding the right time to release it. However I'm going to release it anyway because I want to highlight the work of @Rylas who colored the icons for this set to display great contribution he had on the design and coloring for this set. The theme for this set is soul, (no not the movie...) I always thought it would be interesting to utilize the the Drudges enemy faction from Night Ward as a powerset, however as I made it I ultimately went a different route. I thought that since I released the Spirituality it would be a great time to finally release the set instead of keeping it postponed as I have been. This set will focus on manipulating another's soul or enhancing your soul to create constructs as an extension of your will. So of course once again... Special thanks to @Rylas, for the icon coloring for this set was his work many thanks for creating the design it was a tremendous help, especially for the dark purple background for the icon. - Omnibus Presenting the long awaiting (On My End)... Soul Melee Soul Melee allows the user to reshape their soul to conjure objects as an extension of their will. The user directly targets their opponents soul to decay them upon impact, as well as absorbing and manipulating surrounding souls to deal more fatal blows. Brute and Scrapper Soul Melee is available as a primary set for Scrappers and Brutes. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level: Power Level Effect Soul Strike 1 Melee, Moderate DoT (Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe -Recovery Phantom Lance 1 Melee, High DoT (Lethal/Negative) +Permeable, Foe -Recovery, Slight Knockdown, -To-Hit Soul Funnel 2 Melee, Moderate Damage (Toxic/Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe Knockup, Disorient, -To-Hit Corpsed Conduit 6 Self: +Damage +To-Hit +Res (Negative, Toxic) Foe Slow Soul Sweep 8 Melee, (Cone) High Damage (Toxic/Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe Knockback, Slow, -To-Hit Revenant 12 Summon Revenant (Special) Seized Soul 18 Ranged, Foe Confuse Grim Shadow Lance 26 Melee, Superior DoT (Negative/Lethal/Fire) +Permeable, Foe Disorient Mortuary 32 PBAoE, High DoT (Negative/Lethal/Cold)+Permeable, Foe Knockdown, Disorient, Sleep, -Perception, -Endurance Stalker Soul Melee is available as a primary set for Stalkers. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level: Power Level Effect Soul Strike 1 Melee, Moderate DoT (Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe -Recovery Phantom Lance 1 Melee, High DoT (Lethal/Negative) +Permeable, Foe -Recovery, Slight Knockdown, -To-Hit Soul Funnel 2 Melee, Moderate Damage (Toxic/Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe Knockup, Disorient, -To-Hit Necromancer's Strike 6 Melee, Special Damage(Smashing/Negative) Foe -Recovery, -To Hit, Fear Corpsed Conduit 8 Self: +Damage +To-Hit +Res (Negative, Toxic) Foe Slow Placate 12 Ranged, Foe Placate, Self Stealth/Hide Soul Sweep 18 Melee, (Cone) High Damage (Toxic/Negative/Smash) +Permeable, Foe Knockback, Slow, -To-Hit Seized Soul 26 Ranged, Foe Confuse Grim Shadow Lance 32 Melee, Superior DoT (Negative/Lethal/Fire) +Permeable, Foe Disorient Powers These are the following powers in the Soul Melee powerset Permeable Improves most Soul Melee powers while active. When active the usable becomes intangible or phased however able to attack foes for a limited time. After the limit the player becomes unable to access this ability until Permeable Negation wares off. Permeable Negation last a minute after Permeable is active. Soul Punch You extend your soul and cast it outward onto your opponent, striking their own soul limiting their ability to recover. Deals Moderate DoT Phantom Lance You create a construct of your soul in the shape of a jagged blade, damaging your opponents soul upon your personal grasp upon impact. Deals High DoT Soul Funnel You unleash a whirlpool of souls from surrounding foes absorbing their souls, confining within them storm, draining their very essence.. Deals Moderate damage. Necromancer's Strike A signature stalker attack, this move harnesses the underworld through the casters mastery of necromancy. Dealing a devastating amount of damage. However, if it is executed while you are Hidden, this attack will do tremendous damage, as you waylay your unsuspecting foe with all the powers of darkness. This attack may be interrupted if you move or are attacked while executing this power. Corpsed Conduit You channel the energy of the surrounding souls to enhance your combat performance, as well as draining the energy nearby foes. Soul Sweep You summon a swarm of souls that rapidly bombard foes within a conical range of the caster knocking them back, carrying the souls with them, Deals High damage. Revenant You sacrifice the soul of a defeated opponent in order for your to summon an undead ally, aiding you in combat. This summoning uses a variety of Soul Melee abilities that degrades an enemies defense. When Revenant is active it increase the caster DoT, as well as adding time towards Permeable increasing its usage. Lasts for 1 minute. Seized Soul You capture the soul of your opponent on a target of your choosing, possessing the target to attack it allies for a short period of time, whilst dealing damage as their soul slowly resist your grasp. Grim Shadow Lance Your mastery of necromancy allows you to harness the essence of the Grim reaper into you blade, the move scorches an opponents soul burning them for a short period of time as their soul slowly seeps into the underworld. Mortuary You open a rift into the underworld itself, this move encompasses a large area around the caster dragging all opponents soul around the caster to the realm of shadow gnawing away at their essence as they feel the cold presence of death. Epilogue Thanks for guys for reading my most recent powerset. I have been doing this for some time and always enjoy looking new powersets that could be implemented. As you may have noticed this is a light proposal, I still do very well have intent on seeing such an idea like having more playable aspects of this sets inspiration, the Drudges to be more interactive. I hope you enjoyed this alternative route I took rather than just using the existing Drudge powers that exist. Thanks for reading this far, as always I usually have minor pun before ending my proposal, however if you don't have response I will eat your soul.... Enjoy 😉
  4. This was transferred across from the Sentinel Forums, thus this is a Sentinel set. Numbers are Sentinel numbers. The ability tiers are at Sentinel intervals. So like, maybe a handful of you at best, I started my foray into MMOs in 1999 with EverQuest. I started a week or two after my friends from StarCraft, so I had some catching up to do. It was suggested I try out a Druid because they were easy to solo and leveled fast. I loved the class, played it up into raids and beyond. This set is based off of that. I also plan to put together a defense set themed off of Druid buffs, I'm just not there yet. All numbers are based off of standard formulas. The T2 cast time is intentionally low to make it "match up" with the damage output of the T1, but it will eventually get outpaced with Offensive Opportunity and Interface procs. The kit is mostly based off of the "spell lines" for the Druid. They were known for roots, snares, a magic based dot line, a fire based debuff/dot line, fire based DDs, a lightning aoe, and earthquake spells on the offense side. They also had a "wind" spell line that was good for interrupting spell casts, but I didn't have room to weave that in. Additionally, their "final" spells at level 49 were both a fire and an ice version, but I'm sticking to the Fire theme. T1: Ignite - Named from the level 9 DD spell. Low level, doesn't do a ton of damage. Animation: Flares Damage: 44.38 Fire Accuracy: 1 Cast: 1 Recharge: 3 End: 4.37 T2: Combust - Named from the level 29 DD spell. Mid level, does moderate damage. This started out as Immolate to tie in a defense debuff, and I may change it back, but I wasn't sure about two dramatically different attacks in the T1 and T2. Dark Blast has two different kinds of attacks, so whatever, it's not unheard of. It would play with the mechanic of the set if it was made into a DOT, but having a T2 that does less damage than the T1 until you have your T4 doesn't sounds fun to me. Animation: Also Flares/Fire Blast Damage: 78.19 Fire Accuracy: 1 Cast: 1.17 Recharge: 7 End: 7.70 T3: Lightning Strike - Named from the level 34 AoE spell. Planned to function similar to Lightning Ball, but I'm thinking a different animation, like Thunderous Blast. Damage: 57.06 Energy Accuracy: 1 Cast: 1.17 Recharge: 12 End: 11.86 Targets: 10 Radius: 15 Arc: 360 T4: Enveloping Roots: Named from the level 39 Root spell. Now we're getting into the "mechanic" of the set. After a few months into EQs launch, DOT spells were changed to do 1/3 damage against moving targets, so the "root and rot" technique was developed. Slightly more mana intensive, but just as safe as "kiting." So here's my mechanic, Primary attacks with DOTs do 1/3 damage unless the target is held/immobilized. Animation: Strangler/Entangle Damage: 63.95 Smashing/39.60 Lethal Accuracy: 1 Cast: 1.67 Recharge: 10 End: 10.19 T5: I'm kind of on the fence about the name. Right now I have it as Storm Strength, but I'm up for suggestions. T6: Upheaval - Named from the level 51 PBAoE spell. Run of the mill earthquake spell. Animation: Earthquake Damage: 47.55 Smashing Accuracy: 1 Cast: 2.17 Recharge: 15 End: 14.35 Targets: 10 Radius: 20 Arc: 360 T7: Winged Death: Named from the level 53 DOT spell. This spell had a higher than normal hit rate, so that's reflected in its accuracy. Damage: 8 ticks of 6.43 Lethal. Additional 8 * 12.86 Lethal damage against a "rooted" target. Animation: Call Swarm Accuracy: 1.15 Cast: 1.83 Recharge: 16 End: 15.18 T8: Wildfire: Named from the level 59 Nuke. Added a "burn" effect to give the root mechanic something else to do. Animation: Blaze Damage: 120.45 Fire + 80% (cancel on miss) * 4 chance for 3.96 damage. Additional 80% (cancel on miss) * 4 * 7.93 Fire damage against a "rooted" target. Accuracy: 1.2 Cast: 1.07 Recharge: 12 End: 11.86 T9: Fist of Nature - Named from the level 58 spell Fist of Karana. Obviously Karana makes no sense in this game, so he was replaced. Another targeted AOE spell. Animation: Not sure. Damage: 119.03 Energy/49.03 Smashing Accuracy: 1.4 Cast: 2.93 Recharge: 90 End: 15.60 Targets: 10 Radius: 25 Arc: 360 Let me know what you all think. Yes I've put this in my spreadsheet, it's designed to be more on the top end of damage, but below Fire/Electric.
  5. EDIT: I remembered wrong, thanks for verifying y'all I thought I was going crazy lmao I grew up playing COH & COV & have fond memories of using the Poison powerset among many others. I created a Corruptor yesterday w/ Psychic blast & Poison powersets, but when I started playing the game I noticed an issue with Poison powerset's first ability, Alkaloid. In the original game Alkaloid could be used as an attack against enemies, or as a heal for friendlies depending on who you had targeted. Now however, Alkaloid is unable to be used as an attack power against foes. Is there a reason for this change? Is this a glitch? Can this be fixed so that the power matches up with the power's description? While it's not game breaking by any means, it was a huge disappointment to discover the power doesn't work the way it's supposed to. Would LOVE to see this fixed or hear any feedback on this issue. I know it's not everyone's favourite powerset, but if it's in the game it should work the way it was meant to, no?
  6. Hello all! Now that my proposal for Light Control has been properly drafted out, I decided to move onto another obvious gap in the Control powersets: one that involves force fields, but in a ways that disable or otherwise occupy enemies rather than supporting allies like Force Fields currently does. I was also inspired by the deadlier applications of barriers that the Force Fields set doesn’t really explore, heavily alluding to the main four ways of exploiting energy shields for fun and profit (which powers correlate to which I’ll leave to the reader to decide!), namely: Popping: “A shield rapidly expanding over you hurts, but be glad it’s not expanding inside of your head instead.” Cutting: “These barriers have rather sharp edges...move a muscle and you’ll get sliced.” Crushing: “I could squeeze you into a fine paste, but I won’t.” Internal Blockages: “If I can stop you from passing through, imagine what I could do with your bloodstream.” Additionally, I wanted to avoid too much overlap with the sorts of control that already exists in the Force Fields powerset – as such, I tried to refrain from providing any functionality that it could already potentially provide. There might be a potential Barrier Control/Force Fields player out there, after all! I’ll start off by detailing the different kinds of summons that are available to Barrier Control and the general logic behind the powerset before delving into each of the different powers separately. Looking forward to feedback as usual. Is this a powerset that you’d be interested in using? Is it relatively balanced? Any clarifications required about how any of the powers might work? Hope to hear plenty of responses from people! Barrier Type Table Type Created By Properties Energy Barrier T1: Explosive Sphere* T2: Razor Bubble* T3: Detain* T4: Suppression Zone T6: Mass Detention Durability = fragile (similar to a Fire Imp pet), tougher with Domination Target = single enemy Effects: Immobilizes enemy in place (high magnitude) Enemy within can only target/affect the barrier If summoned over an existing barrier, replaces it instead (can’t be stacked, but transfers buffs) *Requires Barrier Empowerment, works once per use Kinetic Barrier T5: Kinetic Barrier Durability = several Energy Barriers worth of health, tougher with Domination Target = specified area in a dome Effects: Keeps enemies from entering or exiting (allies pass freely) Enemies and allies can’t target/affect things that aren’t also inside or outside the barrier with them Compression Field T8: Compression Field Durability = several Energy Barriers worth of health (less than Kinetic Barrier), tougher with Domination Target = single enemy along with nearby foes Effects: Brings enemies together by gradually shrinking Can’t bring in more enemies than the initial group Deals some damage over time due to compressive force Something that’ll be quite noticeable about this powerset is that it actually lacks any form of AoE Holds. The one Hold that it does have ( T3: Detain) is a toggle, meaning only one enemy can ever be Held by this powerset at a time (it’s a rather strong Hold to compensate though). This was quite intentional – Barrier Control is heavily focused on soft control, with its ability to split up a group of enemies to reduce damage coming their way, and numerous (albeit destructible) summons to keep them occupied. Borne from this is its rather unique final power, in T9: Barrier Implosion. Instead of a pet summon (that’s pretty much covered by the rest of Barrier Control’s powers), it sacrifices all nearby barriers for a stun and widespread damage, inflicting more damage for each additional barrier surrounding enemies at the time. Barrier Control also uses a good amount of toggle powers; once deactivated, they’ll take a while to come back online. This was meant to both emulate how a force field user in fiction may sometimes lose focus and need time to recuperate, and to add a risk-reward element to T9: Barrier Implosion.

  7. I have always been enamored with the idea of using one's own body as a weapon. If a toon can have super strength, they can also have super corrosive biological fluids, and there is nothing less believable about evolving superpowered sneezes than evolving the ability to project energy blasts. Here is the basic framework for the bio blast set I have imagined. I know the existing animations might not exist, making implementation problematic, but I am more than willing to upload a high res video of myself performing the animations if that would expedite the artistic process. Tier 1. Snot Rocket: light ranged damage (toxic) , short recharge. By covering one nostril with a finger and forcing a superhuman volume of air out your nose, you project a glob of toxic mucus to damage your foe. Tier 2. Hock a Loogie: moderate ranged damage (toxic), moderate recharge. Pretty self explanatory. A heavier method of assaulting with toxic mucus. Tier 3. Projectile Vomit. 50' cone, moderate damage (fire), -RES, moderate recharge. you spew a cone of boiling hot puke at your foes, damaging them and lowering their resistance to further damage Tier 4. Fling Poo. Ranged targeted AOE. Moderate single target damage (smashing), splash damage (toxic) 10% chance for mag 3 stun. You chuck a big handful of the original bio grenade. Tier 5. Silent but deadly. PBAOE sleep (16 targets max). You assault your foes with a offensively toxic cloud of bowel gas. Tier 6. Drink booze. Self +DAM, +tohit. By throwing some of the devil's brew into your digestive system you significantly add to the deadliness of your biological attacks Tier 7. Urine Snipe. ranged extreme damage (lethal) recharge moderate. You slice your enemy with a high pressure blast of biologically processed morning coffee. Tier 8. Dad sneeze. PBAOE stun minor damage (smashing), recharge long. You stun your foes, shattering their eardrums with the earsplitting sound of the dad sneeze. (16 targets max) Tier 9. Bowel Explosion PBAOE extreme damage. -DAM, -res, -def, -tohit, foe stun, foe hold, 50% chance for mag 4 confuse. No description can do justice to this power, the ultimate tier 9. I understand that the playerbase of some MMORPGs are not suited for content of this nature, but Homecoming players are too mature to giggle at poop jokes, and would be able to solemnly enjoy the natural functions of the superhuman body.
  8. Hey all! After writing up a proposal for Insect Control, I’ve decided to try and create another Control powerset, and decided to fill an obvious elemental gap – there’s a lack of Control powersets in general, so I’m trying to do my part to help resolve that. As a secondary goal, I wanted to make Light Control relatively unique, while still maintaining a decent amount of lockdown despite its larger amount of non-standard powers. Given this decision, I’d definitely be interested in hearing everyone’s thoughts on this: is it too divergent/weak/overtuned/unenjoyable? Special Effect: Illuminate Similar to how Time Manipulation's Time Crawl inflicts the Delayed effect on enemies, Light Control's Ray of Light and Dazzling Glow inflict the Illuminated effect, enhancing the strength of some of its powers on the targets it's applied on. The idea behind this was to allow for stronger amounts of control against enemies that require it. The affected powers are as follows: T1: Ray of Light, bonus damage T2: Dazzling Glow, Mag 3.5 Sleep -> Mag 7 Sleep (+3.5) T3: Radiating Ties, Mag 3 Immobilize -> Mag 4 Immobilize (+1) T4: Blinding Halo, Mag 2 Hold -> Mag 4 Hold (+2) T6: Incandescent Eruption, bonus damage T7: Prismatic Field, 2% chance Disorient -> 4% chance Disorient T8: Luminous Distortion, 2% chance Confuse -> 4% chance Confuse Design Rationale Light Control's powers were made to primarily work at close range, with their long range powers being either single target, or soft/temporary control. Additionally, the main power of this set (T4: Blinding Halo) is meant to not only gradually lock down nearby enemies, but help draw their attention to the user by reducing their range, away from other allies: a very 'selfless' powerset by way of taking up more enemy time. The -ToHit in several of Light Control's powers is meant to synergise with this intent, making it a little harder for enemies to hit the user. Their up-close-and-personal approach is also supplemented with a few weaker location based powers, either for layering on top of their current controls, or for distracting additional mobs. Light Control Power Table Power Level Effect Ray of Light 1 Ranged, Moderate DMG(Energy), Foe -To Hit, -DEF(All), Special Dazzling Glow 1 Ranged, Moderate DMG(Energy), Foe Sleep, Foe -To Hit, Special Radiating Ties 2 PBAoE, Minor DMG(Energy), Foe Immobilize, Foe -To Hit, -Fly Blinding Halo 6 Toggle: PBAoE, Foe Hold, Minor DoT(Energy), Foe -Range, -To Hit, -Stealth Twilight 8 Ranged (Targeted AoE), Foe -Visibility, -To Hit Incandescent Eruption 12 PBAoE, Minor DMG(Energy/Smashing), Foe Knockdown, Chance for Disorient Prismatic Field 18 Ranged (Location AoE), Minor DoT(Energy), Foe -Speed, -DEF(All), Chance for Disorient Luminous Distortion 26 Ranged (Location AoE), Foe Attract, Chance for Confuse Shining Motes 32 Summon Motes: Melee, Minor DoT(Energy) Powers T1: Ray of Light You generate a luminous beam of light and fire it at a target, dealing Energy damage to them. Its brightness can temporarily reduce the chance to hit of your foes, along with their defences. Additionally, Ray of Light applies the Illuminated effect on its target, and deals additional damage to enemies who are already Illuminated.

T9: Gleaming Sphere You summon an immobile, shining sphere of light that surrounds your current location, preventing anything inside from being seen from the outside, and vice versa. Area of Effect powers may still damage those obscured by the sphere. The luminous intensity within the sphere can cause enemies to take moderate Energy damage, have their chance to hit reduced, and even cause them to exit the area if possible.

  9. "Welcome back Omnibus" Thanks Forums... Happy 4th of July to @Tyrannical. I believe your in UK time zone so I wanted to rub in your face the American Independence since we crushed the British. That is right I'm back with another powerset proposal. I'll go straight into the topic for this one. This is another melee set, the theme for this powerset is seismic. Now I know the vast majority of you may be thinking the following. Why do we need seismic melee if we have stone melee? Well "Seismic" is a potential energy that focuses on the forces responsible for channeling those natural calamities such as earthquakes. Meaning that it is earth related, as it is a natural occurrence. However while Stone melee conjures earth, Seismic Melee conjures up the forces bottled up inside the earth, allowing you to tap into at your will. So you will see geological related attacks but it is not creating earth as Stone Melee does, but rather harnessing the potential energy the earth possesses from within. You are moving the earth along with you because of the forces trapped within it. Not encasing your strike with the earth itself. Now I would also like to address another concern that you all may be thinking. "Isn't this set way too overpowered' And to answer your question, YES IT IS, Deal with it. If you ask me we need more overpowered sets especially since the ones that were cool and had to potential to be unique kept getting nerfed on live. And since this a seismic set dealing with potential energy, you can trust me; The Potential will not be diminished unlike Kinetic Melee. @Infinitum's favorite. We need brave crusaders like him to fight for what's right. No nerfing unique sets!!! A phenomenal thanks to @Vanden he has always been a fantastic help with the icon coloring for these power icons. Since I know @ShadeknightI know you're an icon guy I hope you enjoy the multicolored retro effect he gave the icons. Gives out the sense of seismic intensity for the powerset. Furthermore in turn because of Vandens aid I'm going to promote and implement a variant of a mechanic he suggested on the forums to add onto this new powerset to make missing less possible. Click here to check it out. So without further a due. Seismic Melee Seismic Melee generates barrages of potential energy. The user taps within the earth crust, to harness the potential energy stored beneath them; In order to severely wound, degrade, and falter their foes; occasionally preventing their recovery and often maintaining their footing as the earth itself seems to be against them. Because of Seismic Melees overwhelming impact on the environment; Seismic Attacks ability to miss, rapidly decreases when opponents are in the presence of seismic waves. Players are granted the ability to deal more devastating affects on the target with the function of Magnitude. Magnitude dramatically rises a players seismic output and has 3 levels of varying affects. Each move carries the affect of the specific Magnitude level they are on. Each can be diminished with a Richter Release or Finisher Move. (Magnitude affects last at a maximum of 3 seconds) Power Tables Brute & Scrapper The Seismic Melee powerset is available as a primary for Brutes & Scrappers. The following table shows which level each power is available. Power Tables Power Level Effect Seismic Strike 1 Melee, Minor Damage (Smashing/Energy), Foe Disorient, Seismic Intensity, Magnitude Foreshock Fist 1 Melee, Moderate DoT (Smashing/Energy), Foe Slight Knockback, -To-Hit, Seismic Intensity, Magnitude Diverging Blow 2 Melee (Cone), High Damage (Smashing/Energy), Foe Knockback, Richter Release/Finisher Epicenter 6 Self: +Damage +Jump +To-Hit, Special (Auto Magnitude 3) Shuddershock 8 Melee, Moderate Damage (Smashing/Energy), Foe Disorient, -Def (Smashing/Energy) Seismic Intensity, Magnitude False Fault 12 Ranged, Foe Taunt -Def (Smashing/Energy) -Range Quaking Chasm 18 Melee, (Targeted Area of Effect), Heavy DoT (Smashing/Energy), Foe Knockdown, Finisher Shatterfist 26 Melee, Superior Damage (Lethal/Smashing), Foe Disorient, -Res (Smashing/Energy), Finisher Converging Plate 32 Melee, (Targeted Area of Effect) Superior DoT (Smashing/Lethal/Energy), Foe Knockdown, Slow, Fear, Seismic Intensity, Magnitude Power Level Effect Seismic Intensity 1 Melee, +Accuracy, + To Hit Bonus, Foe -Recovery Magnitude 1 1 Melee, Foe Snare Magnitude 2 1 Melee, Foe Hold Magnitude 3 1 Melee, Foe Knockdown Seismic Waves 1 Ranged, High Damage (Smash/Energy), Foe +Special Seismic Intensity Required for Magnitude, when exerted on foe from caster, a foes recovery rate worsens in the presence of a potential disaster. This affect allows the caster to increases their accuracy as they are able to detect the emission of seismic waves they casted upon their foe. This allows the user to deal more violent waves of seismic energy and more detrimental effects to be release with Magnitudes progression. MAGNITUDE Seismic Strike You perform a quick strike of potential energy harnessed underneath you, emitting upward onto your target. Foreshock Fist You attack your foe with a mild trembling attack that is proceeded by more violent shaking to the foe dealing additional damage over time. Diverging Blow You split apart your foes with a charged rush of potential energy, extending your attack over a conical area, afflicting damage to multiple targets. This is a finisher when used the caption RICHTER RELEASE will appear of the target dealing additional damage. Epicenter As you become the center all seismic activity, you generate a immense amount of pressure of potential energy stored from beneath you to enhance movement speed as well as your blows of all seismic attacks. Epicenter also increases accuracy as you move more fluently when your foes environment becomes immersed in your seismic waves. Shuddershock You charge such an enormous amount of potential energy that you begin creating cracks in the atmosphere as a result of the potential buildup. You finally expel this strike onward to an opponent severely degrading their defense to all seismic attacks. False Fault You taunt your opponent by casually creating a rift nearby an opponent implying it was intended for them. The foe despite now being agitated, was still within range of seismic activity and their defense towards your blows decrease. Quaking Chasm You pummel the earth beneath you extracting more potential energy to be releases as the ground becomes unstable. The output of energy is so devastating it collapses all targets within the quakes range. This is a finisher when used the caption RICHTER RELEASE will appear of the target dealing additional damage. Shatterfist You concentrate all the potential energy within your environment into a single catastrophic strike. The seismic intensity is so chaotic it begins to shatter the atmosphere around your fist. Unleashing this calamity onto an opponent fatally wounds them, leading to various detrimental effects. This is a finisher when used the caption RICHTER RELEASE will appear of the target dealing additional damage. Converging Plates Your mastery of seismic energy allows you to alter the very plate tectonics themselves. You compress both ends of the ground beneath you. The impact of the colliding plates causes both ends of the ground to morph into a range of disaster, devastating a foe. Epilogue Thank you all for viewing another one of my proposals. I hope this addresses any concerns you may have in terms of value and the need for this set. Nevertheless I hope you'll be intrigued by this set and consider it an idea worth adding. I like to introduce and expand, real life existing concepts while making these new powerset proposals, so each set feels different then the last. So I not only are you invested in this potential powerset proposal, but you also have a understanding as well of geological events. Having a Seismic Melee set would expand on more superpowered themes that have not been introduced in game. I wanted to make this set because there isn't a vibration or a sonic based melee set so I wanted to incorporate the two to create something unique but equally desirable. Enjoy the Overpoweredness 😉 I'll also add a Tanker and Stalker power Table to ensure we this power is available for all melee AT unlike some powers. FX and Animations coming shortly for visualization.
  10. Reaper Scythe Both a reskin and a unique take on the Battle Axe melee set. Note: because I liked their suggestion so much, this idea is going off another posters' suggested changes for Battle Axe (here). tl;dr of those battle axe changes is, axe's secondary effect would be slightly extended range (+2 to +4 feet) with some extra cleave action (some attacks are actually narrow cones) and the overall set is improved to have some higher damage attacks in conjunction to having higher recharge times. It's important to note these changes because my set takes away much of that in exchange for its unique mechanic. To reiterate, I'm suggesting this have the same cast times for most of its powers so that the set's animations can also be ported to Battle Axe as an option as well as vice versa. This, I feel (in a fantasy world where new sets are being animated), could be a way to breath new life into old sets without directly tipping the scales into power creep. The same could technically be done for any older sets, really. Another note, this is a 2-handed set. This means, technically, you could use Battle Axe animations if you want to pair this with shield or if you are Battle Axe and want to use the 2-handed animations, you cannot do so if you have Shield Defense. If you're an American comicbook purist who feels there should be an equivalent somewhere amongst DC or Marvel, this suggestion may not be for you. I'm a comicbook casual but an anime/manga enthusiast, mostly. Archetypes Reaper Scythe is a melee attack set for current Tanker, Brute and Scrapper archetypes. I'd like a version of Battle Axe for Stalker too so that I could create a scythe wielding assassin. Mechanics Reaper Scythe's unique mechanic is called Marked for Death. Every attack within the set that does damage has a small chance of granting a target the "marked for death" effect. A target under the effects of Fear has a moderately increased chance to gain the "marked for death" effect and a target under the effects of Sleep have a greatly increased chance to gain the "marked for death" effect. Reaper Scythe attacks against a target under this effect lowers their resistance to Sleep, Fear, Immobilize, Hold and Disorient effects. Marked for Death does not stack or refresh but instead, pays its effects off when it expires. As a granted power, its effects are determined by the user (the target with the "marked for death" effect). On minion and below targets, "marked for death" lasts 6 seconds. Upon expiration, the target will cast an AoE mag 2 4sec fear around itself and be immune to "marked for death" for 6 seconds. If the target dies before it expires, it will 100% pass this effect onto another minion foe within 20ft and have a moderate (20%) chance to also pass the effect onto a Lt. or above target. On a Lt or above (including players), "marked for death" lasts 6 seconds. Upon expiration, the target receives a moderate amount of Negative Energy damage and -1 mag protection for 18sec. To clarify, Reaper Scythe attacks deal Lethal damage only while Marked for Death deals Negative Energy damage to Lt or above. Name Primary Secondary Description Throat Slash 1 1 Melee, Moderate DMG(lethal), 40% Foe Knockdown, +Mark for Death Butcher 1 2 Melee, High DMG(lethal), 40% Foe Knockdown, +Mark for Death Dissect 2 4 Melee, Narrow Cone, Superior DMG(lethal), +Mark for Death Taunt 6 10 Ranged (Targeted AoE), Foe Taunt, -Range Reap 8 16 Self +DMG, +ToHit, Special +Absorb Crescent Cut 12 20 Melee, Superior DMG(lethal), 70% Foe Knockup, +Mark for Death Rift into the Abyss 18 28 PBAoE, Foe -ToHit, Foe Terrorize Pull 26 35 Close, Extreme DMG(lethal), Foe Teleport, +Mark for Death Guillotine 32 38 Melee Cone (180 degrees), Superior DMG(lethal), Foe +Mark for Death, +Special Powers, Alphabetically: Butcher Melee, Single Target, High Lethal Damage, Slow Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Chop, this can only hit one foe but shares the same damage. A foe hit with Butcher has a chance to be Marked for Death and Knocked down. Set Categories: Melee, Knockback Crescent Cut Melee, Single Target, Superior Lethal Damage, Slow Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Swoop, and shares the same damage amount. A deadly vertical slash can send your target flying upward. A foe hit with Crescent Cut has a chance to be Marked for Death and Knocked up. Set Categories: Melee, Knockback Dissect Narrow Cone, 3 Targets, Superior Lethal Damage, Slow Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Gash, this shares the same cone radius but without the extra range or knockdown. This attack is slow but can strike multiple foes. Foes hit with Dissect have a chance to be Marked for Death. Set Categories: PBAoE Guillotine Melee Cone (180 degrees), Superior Lethal Damage, Special, Very Slow Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Pendulum, this shares the same radius but without the extra range or knockdown and does slightly less damage. This attack spares none in its arc. Foes hit with Guillotine have a chance to be Marked for Death. If a target that is Marked for Death is hit by Guillotine, the Marked for Death effect will instantly expire after this attack. Set Categories: PBAoE Notes: When a target that is Marked is hit by a Reaper Scythe attack, their resistance to mez is reduced. This attack will apply that effect before Marked for Death is made to expire. Pull Close Range (40ft), Single Target, Extreme Lethal Damage, Foe Teleport, Very Slow Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Cleave, this attack can reach at a longer range but only hits one foe. Yank a victim closer and pull your blade through them. Foes hit by Pull have a chance to be Marked for Death. Set Categories: Ranged, Teleport Notes: Same range as Claws Focus, this has the added effect of pulling a target to you (teleportation). This is the set's strongest attack, same as Battle Axe's Cleave. Reap Click: Self +DMG, +ToHit, Special +Absorb (8% Max HP), Long Recharge Counterpart to Build Up, Reap has the same damage and ToHit buff with the same duration but gets stacking +Absorb for every hit on a foe that is Marked for Death. When striking a foe that is Marked for Death, you can feed off their fear and inevitable demise, lessening their resolve to fight back. Set Categories: ToHit Buff, Heal/Absorb Notes: Stacks to max of +25% Absorb ontop of any Absorb you currently have. Max duration of 20sec. Rift into the Abyss PBAoE, Foe -ToHit, Fear, caster must be near the ground, Long Recharge Counterpart to Battle Axe's Whirling Axe, this skill does no damage but can put foes in a state of paralyzing fear. Set Categories: ToHit Debuff, Accurate ToHit Debuff, Fear Notes: For animations, I'd like two versions: one where you stab the ground, opening up a chasm underneath you as well as a "slash open the air" animation revealing a portal into someplace else for a short time. Either can work with current Whirling Axe. Throat Slash Melee, Single Target, Moderate Lethal Damage, Fast Recharge Counterpart to Beheader, the damage and effects match just without Battle Axe's extra range. Attempt to remove your opponent's head with a slash at the neck. Foes hit with Throat Slash have a chance to be Marked for Death and knocked down. Set Categories: Melee, Knockback Marked for Death Target Self: Special, 6sec Duration The chance of placing this power on a target is low (around 5%). The chance of placing this power on a terrorized target is moderate (20%). The chance of placing this power on a sleeping target is very high (75%). Foes Marked for Death will have their resistance to fear, sleep, hold, immobilize and disorient reduced by 12% for 25sec every time they are struck with a Reaper Scythe attack. When a minion or below is defeated while Marked for Death, they will cast Marked for Death on another minion within 20ft and has a low chance of casting it again on a Lt or above target. When a minion's Marked for Death expires, it casts a short range AoE mag2 fear and will remain immune to Marked for Death for 6 seconds When a Lt's or above Marked for Death expires, it will apply a Moderate to High amount of Negative Energy damage to itself and their protection to Fear, Sleep, Hold, Immobilize and Disorient is reduced by 1 for 18sec. You can reapply Marked for Death immediately after it expires. Just some thoughts, this set is supposed to shine on a Tanker moreso than a Brute or Scrapper. The damage from Marked for Death would have a base standard depending on the target, not the caster and most of its attacks are slow and powerful with a secondary effect meant for permanently shutting down targets once they are mezzed. Also, thanks to malonkey1 as I copied your post format and just plugged in new stuff.

  12. Hello forum goers, it has been some time, once again I am back with a new powerset proposal. I have done multiple melees, and more recently engaged in control & assaults, so I decided this time as I "always" provide aid and assistance in providing revolutionary ideas to suggestions and feedback, I would now try involving myself with support based powersets for Defenders, Controllers, and possibly Corruptors. The theme for this one is Spiritualism, it involves the player unleashing their personal spirit to help unlock others full potential. I'm providing this description as this support powerset as many of my other proposals, is different. The new twist is that it also allows for allies to grant the same Buffs to other teammates granted from the caster, as well as provide them with an additional powers while under these buff affects. Are you intrigued so far, well as always... Special thanks to @Vanden for providing the icons. Excellent job with the multi-colored effects its work spectacularly. Introducing... Spirituality Spirituality gives you the ability to to unleash your spirit onto another to awaken your teammates full potential to garner various forms of earthbound threats that may degrade an allies performance. The goal of Spiritualism is to reach enlightenment, in order to unrestrained by any control based affects as well as allowing allies to ward of enemies through projections of their mind soul and body.

Deals Superior Damage, has only 1 usage Weaken Spirit You extend your spirit onto a foe by sheer presence, severely plummets their ability to dish out damage on those who have departed form the physical plane. This is an auto move. Conclusion Thank you for viewing my proposal I decided to do one with a spiritual theme as I was looking for ways to increase personal motivation given these circumstances. Hope you guys enjoy this new concept for Defenders and support based AT in general, hope that the theme was enough to allow for this new approach to this playstyle. Hopefully reading through this post will awaken your spirit and unlocked new potential for this thread. I will release potential animation and effects in the future for visualization.
  13. Back in 2019 I had posted something like this and while yes I may be beating a dead horse. Its still something I want to see as really it could be an interesting idea that could work. Here's what I have and some of it is from my old post and yes I know this is from a previous post I posted not too long ago so I thought I should repost since the first post was made back in 2019 and the other one was made not that long ago. Slug: You fire a slug round into your enemy from your shotgun. While it only targets on enemy it has a chance to knock them back. Damage: Moderate, Recharge: Fast Pummel: You pummel your foe with the stock of your shotgun. It deals little damage but it has a chance to disorient them for a time being. Damage: Low, Recharge: Fast Buckshot: Simple enough you fire a buckshot round from the shotgun. Its a cone AoE going outward from you to anyone further out. This has a chance to knock any enemies back. Damage: Moderate, Recharge: Slow Flechette rounds: You load in a flechette round and fire it from your shotgun. It has more range compared to the buckshot and has a chance to inflict a (DoT) on anyone affected. Damage: High, Recharge: Very Slow Speed Loading: You have become accustomed to using the shotgun via the amount of time you've used it. You now can reload faster than ever. (Passive) +Recharge HE Round: You load in a high explosive round into the shotgun. While it can go further than a slug it also deals splash damage (AoE). Damage: High, Recharge: Slow Slam Fire: You take aim and fire at any enemies you can. This is an AOE that can go off with a misclick at any time. Damage: Very High, Recharge: Extreme Feel free to rework or add to this if you wish. Its just what I had and I wanted to repost. A quick adjustment and to clarify what I mean by 'add to this if you wish'. What I mean is if you have your own opinion or idea that could go into this I would like to hear it. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ones Sakura Tenshi were working on that I liked: Sabot Round: Single Target, lethal damage with -res Full Choke: Either a tier 1 or 2 ST damage attack or a replacement for buildup where all the cones become Single Targets and gain a boost in damage. range, and accuracy, but slower recharge and cost more End Rock Salt: low damage either cone or ST, deals a pulsing Mag 2 hold that causes enemies to use the ghoul tantrum animation (symbolizing the horrid pain of rocksalt in their bodies), toxic damage over time, deals bonus special damage to undead. (we have powers that deal bonus damage robots. so why not?) Dragon's Breath: Moderate fire damage cone with DoT. Special gimmick could be that the DoT comes from a 'grant power' on enemies which basically gives them a small chance to spread the DoT to eachother in a chain effect. (this might be really complex coding wise) Breaching Action: Either a tier 9 or a replacement for the Snipe, it's a long cast with interruptible component meant to be used at the start of a fight. You teleport to your target and in a PBAoE around you start blasting everything, your sudden appearance and attack also inflicts low magnitude/short duration fear and confusion as enemies try to muster themselves. These ones were suggested/made by Sakura Tenshi a user on here. I'm just adding these here because idk what to replace on my initial list with these.
  14. Scrappers of Paragon - need some advice. Simply cannot decide on a scrapper (1st) to take to fiddy. I always play stalkers, but its time. I'm torn between: Dual Blades / Energy Aura - Lady Maria Street Justice! / Willpower - WILSON FISK (no relation) Titan Weapon / Ninjutsu - Nectobo Are any of these power set combos that stand out to you experienced scrap-folk?
  15. Hello members of the forums, I have been recently playing a control based archetype and have noticed that's there is fairly few control powerset options for control and assault as opposed to melee or ranged. As someone who prefers being a melee combatant myself I never saw this as an issue, as many people (like myself) prefer to attack enemies up close or from a distance. So the shortage of option was never a concern to me. However after playing as a dominator myself, I recognize that it is a unique playstyle and I wanted to expand on the powerset choices. I though it would be cool to introduce new Control and Assault sets, to bring more selections for Controllers and Dominators. The new theme for this powerset, would deal with space and the cosmos, an idea that isn't implemented or explored in game for players. Hopefully these themes may reinvest people into Crowd Control or grant new options for those who traditionally enjoy it. So without further a due, here is my new powerset proposal. Huge thanks to @Vanden for providing the icons. You always provide a great deal of help and creative insight towards these sets. -Omnibus FYI Spatial - Will deal with manipulating and controlling space i.e. distance and how space is bent. Ex: Distorting the space time continuums, decreasing distance between an object etc... Cosmic/Astro - Will deal with manipulating and controlling phenomenons within space and universe. Ex: Stars, asteroids, comets etc.. Introducing a new theme to Control and Assault powersets... Spatial Control Spatial Control allows you to distort the space time continuum, alter the distance between targets, and bend your surrounding environment. The sheer magnitude of altering space is so great it will often repel targets from the caster upon usage. Spatial Control is available as a primary set for Controllers & Dominators. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level: Power Level Effect Sinking Space 1 Ranged, Minor Damage (Smash), Foe Immobilize Displace 1 Ranged, Moderate Damage (Smash), Foe Teleport (Knockup) Compression 2 Ranged, Moderate DoT(Smash), Foe Hold Disperse 6 Ranged, Moderate Damage (Smash), Foe Knockback Event Horizon 8 Targeted AoE, Minor DoT (Smash), Foe Immobilize Space Time Rift 12 Location AoE, Foe Intangibility, Hold, Slow Big Crunch 18 Targeted AoE, Foe Hold Tesseract 26 Ranged Foe teleport, Foe disorient, knockback Abyss 32 Summon Abyss Powers These are the following powers in the Spatial Control powerset Damages will be adjusted to Dominators Sinking Space You warp space to transfer your foe into the gravitational pull of a much denser space beneath them, this foreign gravitational field is so immense it immobilizes them in place and deals minor DoT. Displace You alter the distance of your opponent within space to move them upward in an instant, only for them to fall downward dealing moderate smashing damage. When use with Compression/Hold the caption DISTORT will appear above a target (as more space is being distorted), dealing an additional damage allowing for more devastating blows. Compression You crush all the space around a foe binding them, and removing their movement altogether. This attack limits your opponents space needed for them to move and deals moderate DoT. Disperse You alter space to scatter an attack many distances to berate the target in front of you. This attack deals moderate damage. When used with Compression/Hold the caption DISTORT will appear once more above a target dealing additional damage. Event Horizon You select a target of your choosing into the event horizon of a black hole, a point of no return in which light cannot escape. This horizon encompasses over a widespread area immobilizing foes of the surrounding area of the foe of choice. This attack cannot be avoided if foes are in spherical distance of the targeted enemy. Space Time Rift You open a rift on the space time continuum, this distortion of space freezes time around a spherical area of a location of you choosing, foes near the rift will experience a reduction of movement speed while enemies caught directly in it will be held temporally. Maintaining this rift is a taxing feat and will rapidly decrease the users endurance. Big Crunch You compress the space over a widespread area and implode the surrounding environment forcing all foes in a spherical area of the target of your choice to be held. Foes after the affects ware of will still experience a 5 second reduction in movement before they are normal again. Tesseract You open up a cubical wormhole, that transports enemies across space time to another distance. This spatial migration is very disorienting for an opponent and knocking them backwards stunning them for a brief period of time. Abyss You tear through the fabric of spacetime to depths of existence, to summon a gap in reality that unleashes a plethora of spatial based attacks for your assistance. Spatial Assault Spatial Assault allows you to disrupt the space time continuum to alter the movement of attacks and creating shifts in the fabric of reality often disorienting your foes. Spatial Assault is available as a secondary set for Controllers & Dominators. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level: Power Level Effect Expansive Blast 1 Ranged, Minor Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Knockback Momentum Strike 2 Melee, High Damage(Smash/Energy), Foe: Disorient, Knockup Ripple Effect 4 Ranged (Cone) Minor Damage(Lethal/Smash), Foe: High Knockback Distortion Wave 10 Ranged, Moderate Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Knockback, Slow, DoT proc Implosion 16 Self +Special +DMG Foe: Snare, - Fly Higgs Field 20 Point Blank Area of Effect Melee, Moderate Damage(Smash/Energy), Foe Knockdown Intense Pressure 28 Melee, Extreme Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Disorient Interval 35 Sniper, Superior Damage(Energy/Lethal), Foe: Knockback Lightspeed 38 Close, Extreme Damage, Self Teleport, (Energy/Lethal), Foe: Knockback Powers These are the following powers in the Spatial Assault powerset Expansive Blast You extend the movement of your attack through spacetime, creating a repulsing blast that repels a target backwards. Deals minor damage and has a chance for a slight knockback. Momentum Strike You manipulate space to reduce friction and attack your opponent at accelerated speeds, often disorienting a foe and dealing high damage. Ripple Effect You create a ripple in the fabric of spacetime pushing back enemies away from the caster. Deals minor damage and will knockback a foe. Distortion Wave You distort the space time continuum and berate you opponent with a full wave of morphed space that overwhelms a foe surrounding environment, this disruption is so tense that reduces the movement of a foe and may do DoT on the same target if still in a similar area of the attack Implosion You implode the space around yourself slowing down your opponents movement speed and flight, while boosting spatial abilities, Type special Higgs Field You generate a miniature field of warped space around you in which mass has grown exponentially. This sphere of space increase in mass prevents all foes surrounding the from getting up. Deals moderate damage, and knocks down enemies. Reference to Higgs mechanism in which all matter is given mass my this hypothetical structure/field, anything that has mass must be within or go through this field. Intense Pressure You focus all the pressure of your surrounding environment reshaping the space time continuum, to bombard your target with the force of sheer pressure. The intensity of this attack is so immense it migrates to other opponent. Deals Extreme Damage, high chance for disorient. Interval You expel a long distance attack that travels at Planck time, dealing superior damage. This attack can potentially disorient foes and knock them back. The sheer speed of this attack is such that the caster loses no momentum upon activation. This attack is instant. Lightspeed You perform a strike that is so fast it moves at the speed of light, teleporting the caster into their opponent. Deals high damage and will knock back a foe. Cosmic Control Cosmic Control allows you to manipulate universal anomalies to restrict your foes movement and control celestial bodies. Controlling the cosmos itself cataclysmic feat and will often deal energy damage from your mastery of outer space. Power Level Effect Orbital Grasp 1 Ranged, Minor Damage (Energy), Foe Immobilize Vacuum 1 Ranged, Moderate Damage (Negative), Foe Knockup Galactic Bind 2 Ranged, Moderate DoT(Energy/Negative), Foe Hold Blazar 6 Ranged, Moderate Damage (Energy/Fire), Foe Knockback Asteroid Field 8 Targeted AoE, Minor DoT (Smash), Foe Snare Stellar Core 12 Location AoE, Superior DoT (Fire/Energy) Foe Slow, Disorient Nebula 18 Targeted AoE, Foe Hold, -Perception Quantum Tunneling 26 Ranged foe teleport, Foe confuse, knockback Extrasolars 32 Summon Bright Nova &White Dwarf Powers These are the following powers in the Cosmic Control powerset. Orbital Grasp You summon a vortex into the orbit of another planet underneath your opponent that's gravity is much larger than Earths, this immense pull of the target immobilizes them. Vacuum You open a funnel in space generating a miniature black hole knocking them downward. Deals Moderate Damage, when used with hold the strength will amplify under the caption COLLISION. Galactic Bind You encircle your opponent with a miniature galaxy bound at their center, the strength of the active galactic nucleus constricts the foes movement holding them in place dealing a moderate DoT. Blazar You jet forward a gleaming blast of scorching energy from the core of a galaxy, this attacks deals moderate damage and a slight chance for knockback. Deals moderate damage however when used with hold the strength will amplify under the caption COLLISION. Asteroid Field You transform the battlefield into an area filled with asteroids, these asteroid bombard multiple targets restricting their movement and mobility. Stellar Core Your mastery of the cosmos allows you to open a rift into the inner core of the sun, the heat from the sun is so immense it stuns your foes while severely limiting their mobility and ability to attack. This attack can be used on an area of your choosing Nebula You unleash a nebula onto an opponent of your choice, the nuclear fusion generated from within these stellar clouds of dust holds a foe in place as it spreads outward over a widespread area affecting other nearby targets, negating their perception. Quantum Tunneling You open a portal of a luminous galactic nucleus, this nucleus containing a supermassive black hole sucks in so much energy it instantly migrates your opponent to its location. The effect of this traveling ways in heavy on your foe, and will suffer from confusion whist in a state of panic. Slight chance for knockback. Extrasolars Your understanding of the cosmos allows you to transport various extraterrestrials to fight by your side. This being is capable of utilizing cosmos with a variety of energy based attacks. Astro Assault Astro Assault allows you to expel a variety of universal phenomenon's to project onto your opponents bombarding them with the objects from the night sky. Barraging your enemies celestial bodies of deep space a phenomenal feat and its cosmic impact will often degrade the defense of an opponent from the sheer magnitude of the attack. Power Level Effect Meteorite 1 Ranged, Minor Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Knockback Orion Arm 2 Melee, High Damage(Smash/Energy), Foe: Disorient Solar Ignition 4 Ranged Minor Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: High Knockback Galactic Thrust 10 Ranged, Moderate Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Knockback Heliopause 16 Toggle: Self +Special Foe Repel, Knockdown Supernova 20 Point Blank Area of Effect Melee, High Damage(Fire/Energy) Collapsing Star 28 Melee, Extreme Damage(Energy/Smash), Foe: Disorient Halley's Comet 35 Sniper, Superior Damage(Energy/Lethal), Foe: Knockback Big Bang 38 Close, Superior Damage(Energy/Smash), +DMG, DEF (All) Foe: Knockback, -Perception over PBAoE Powers Meteorite You summon a meteorite from deep space to launch at your opponent knocking them down. Deals Minor Damage. Orion Arm You propel your arm forward harnessed by galactic energy for a single fatal swing disorienting a foe. Deals High Damage. Solar Ignition You generate a miniature sun in the palms of your hands and cast it down outward to your opponent, knocking them backwards. Deals Minor Damage. Galactic Thrust You circulate the air of your surrounding to create a miniature galaxy in which rapidly propels forward in a pressing strike, repelling foes caught in its path. Deals Moderate Damage. Heliopause You surround your self with the force of outer space, which stops all other external forces from gaining close contact with you. This attack when toggled repels foes when close to the caster. Supernova You show unleash an attack of a exploding star, this rapid expansion of stellar energy combust violently and easily scatters energy over a widespread area. Collapsing Star This move shows great mastery over the cosmos, as you lunge into the air and preform an attacks that compresses the energy of a supernova and concentrates it into a single blow affecting a single target. Will disorient a foe from the sheer impact. Deals Extreme Damage Halley's Comet A focused blast of immense strength and speed for collected over traveling lightyears at a time. This is a sniper attack and is best fired from a distance as it can be interrupted. Deals Superior Damage Big Bang A truly phenomenal feat, you bring forth the very spark of creation. You discharge the unbridled spark of existence across the battlefield, the massive radiance of this move forces all foes to loose their perception over a point blank area, as well as knockback foes and severely degrade their defensive and offensive capabilities. The energy brought forth from this attack is unrestricted you will gain a boost in you combat attributes from the rapid influx of energy.

This is an idea I want to see implemented in the came because of the lack of universal themes in this superpowered MMO. I would like to see more themes like this whether it is in a different set, however I choose control and assault as they were the ones I'd like to see get added onto the most and provides for a whole new range of themes and qualities we can add to powersets in the game. Some of these concept draw from quantum mechanics and scientific studies about deep space, so I hope if you caught some of the references. Nevertheless Hope you enjoyed exploring the cosmos.
  16. Upon revisiting the game I've had time to play kinetic melee a power that used to deal a substantial amount of damage until being massively reduced in the live server. I have seen and supported various suggestions on how to return kinetic melee to its former glory. However upon discussing on what kinetic can do it grew into an idea of an entirely new power. While noticing the various types of force related powersets, Kinetics (Both), Force of Will, Gravity Control, and Force Field, I had wanted to create a powerset that would be based of the 4 fundamental forces of nature, allowing for more variation in attacks. Instead of just repelling targets and dealing damage, you'd be able to harness all the forces from Strong and Weak interactions, from expanding on electronegativity, as well as manipulating gravity in a unique way that hasn't been implemented in the game. Special thanks to @Vanden for providing the icons. Introducing a new addition to force based attacks... Force Melee Force Melee allows you to concentrate sharp attacks of the four fundamental forces of matter to defeat your foes. Dealing with these forces is an unstable feat and will often substantially bombard opponents with force, leading to varying affects depending on the forces being performed as the forces that keep them intact are being used against them. It is a primary powerset for Scrappers, Brutes, and Stalkers, and a secondary powerset for Tankers. Power Tables Brute & Scrapper Force Melee is available as a primary set for Brutes & Scrappers. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level: Power Level Effect Power Level Effect Forced Strike 1 Melee, Moderate Damage (Lethal/Energy), Foe Immobilize, Slight Hold (Strong Force) Particle Decay 1 Melee, Moderate DoT (Lethal/Energy), Foe -Recovery, Slight Knockback-To-Hit (Weak Force) Fission Blow 2 Melee, High Damage (Lethal/Energy), Foe Knockback -To-Hit (Weak Force) Channel Force 6 Self: +Damage +To-Hit (Strong Force) Forced Foe 8 Melee, (Cone) Moderate Damage (Psionic/Energy), Foe Disorient, -To-Hit, Magnetic Field 12 Location (Point Blank Area of Effect), Moderate DoT (Smashing/Energy) Foe Slow, Taunt (Electromagnetism) Void 18 Ranged, (Targeted Area of Effect), High DoT (Lethal/Energy/Negative/Cold) Foe -Perception(Gravity) Electromagnetic Flux 26 Melee, Superior DoT (Energy/Lethal/Fire) Self +Endurance, Foe Slow, Confuse (Electromagnetism) Immense Mass Punch 32 Melee, Superior Damage (Energy/Lethal), Foe Immobilize, Knockback, Disorient, Slow, Confuse -To-Hit (SF,WF,EM,G) Stalker Force Melee is available as a primary set for Stalkers.

Forced Strike You manipulate the strong interaction to increase the density in you fist and binding the particles around your blow to perform a sharp attack dealing moderate damage. Forced Strike has a small chance to grant you exertion. While active exertion will hold foes in place. Recharge Fast. Particle Decay You utilize the weak force diffuse a repulsive strike onto your opponent to diverging them into pieces on a molecular level, performing moderate damage over time. Particle Decay will have a moderate chance for exertion increasing the damage. Recharge Fast. Fission Blow You deal a slow but sharp attack that divides a foe at a subatomic level, scattering them away from the caster performing high damage. Fission Blow will have a high chance for granting exertion, while you have exertion active it will deal moderate DoT. Recharge Moderate. Assassins Exertion A signature stalker attack, this deals superior lethal and energy damage on its own its a frontal attack, you deal a strike a exerts an impressive amount of force onto a target, sometimes stunning them. When used with exertion this attack will degrade a foes defensive attributes. Recharge Slow. Channel Force You bind your body by harnessing the strong force, increasing your self density, allowing you to perform more heavy and crushing blows. This greatly boosts your attacks and chance to hit. Recharge Long. Forced Foe You begin to show great mastery of the fundamental forces and begin to mobilize them through your mind. By casting a neural force on you opponent you use their own strength against them. You use your mind to perform telekinesis binding them, then uplifting your opponent in place the dispersing them backwards within a conical range of the caster, potentially colliding them onto other opponents. When used with exertion the caption COLLISION COURSE will appear above a foe dealing Moderate DoT. This attack normally deals Moderate Damage, Recharge Slow Placate Allows you to coerce a foe to cease all aggressive action. A successful placate will also hide you for a brief moment converting the caster into a intangible dematerialized state bound by raw force. However this hide will not provide a defense bonus. However it will offer an automatic exertion or an Assassins' Blow. Magnetic Field You create a large sphere of electromagnetic energy around a location nearby, attracting foes toward you as magnetic debris flown into enemies within the sphere. This levitates targets in the air for a brief moment upon use. This attack will also disorient a target reducing their movements. While used with exertion, electromagnetic pulses will infiltrate a foes neural system confusing them and attack their allies. Maintaining this attack is a taxing feat and will greatly reduce a players endurance. Moderate DoT, Recharge Very Long. Void You compress gravitational force into a single point on a target of your choosing, completely confining them in place, plummeting their mobility to escape the darkest void of space. Collapsing the fabric of reality around said target, and slowing nearby enemies in the gap of space time. Containing this ability is a difficult task and will also drain the users endurance gradually after use, leaving the player vulnerable but not devoid of regaining endurance. When used with exertion the caption COLLAPSE will appear above the foes, holding them from within the range of the attack. This attack deals High DoT, Recharge Very Long. Electromagnetic Flux You conduct electrical energy onto an opponent, this rapid rush electronegativity attracts other other substances creating miniature magnetic field (In terms of the actual attack above) around an opponent disorienting them. This strike while encased in a magnetic field not only leaves fatal blow on the target but will also confuse them after impact attack their own teammates. This attacks grants a high chance for exertion. This attack deals Superior Damage on a foe and will partially reduce the casters endurance. Superior DoT, Recharge Very Long Immense Mass Punch You harness all the fundamental forces of matter into a single devastating blow, trembling the environment itself, however Gravity is mostly at play. This attack consisting of the strong force to bind you blows to enhance your strike, the weak force to diffuse all the energy output at a focused point. Electromagnetic waves to disorient a foe on impact and Gravity to reduce their movement as it land a tremendous amount of downward force onto an opponent crushing them, warping the space around them preventing them from recovering. After an attack with a massive magnitude foes nearby might suffer from all the affects of coming in close proximity of the forces of nature. This attack will provide an automatic exertion however it can not increase with exertion.

  17. Hello, Long time lurker, first time poster. We've got quite a few variations on radiation now in the game, and I saw someone posting about getting more elemental pools so you could do an ice/ice/ice scrapper for example. But what about radiation? I've cobbled this together using the pre-existing powers so obviously the numbers would need fiddling. Let me know. Some of em are possibly a little heavy-handed (meltdown on a dominator 🤯). I tried to copy the rough feel of how fire and elec works in the epic pools - for example, with Radiation Therapy feeling like a version of Consume. Let me know!

  18. Hello! Wind control is an almost completed powerset, functionally working and only really missing completed animations. But, as with other powersets in HC, namely some radiation ports, existing animations could be used. Currently the wind control powerset consists of the nine main powers, and four pet powers, all except one using placeholder animations pulling from Ice and Gravity mostly. ONE existing power, belonging to the pet** uses an animation made for the powerset. Below, I list the powers existing in the code and working, and suggest alternate best case scenario Existing Animation Assets ports [to either replace or add as alternate's to default, if that's easier] to publish the powerset for us all. 🙂 At the end is a list of wind or wind like powers that can also be pulled from. Wind Control Set [As Is] ---- Placeholder Animation / Suggested Animation: Updraft [ST knockup] ----- crush / ice armor whirlwind fx for each armor, minus the armor Downdraft [ST Hold] ----- block of ice / terrible howl [direworlf power] centered on target Breathless [T AoE Immob] -----frost bite / chilling howl [direwolf power] + time manip heal 'rings' as immobfx Windshear [PB AoE Slow] ----- arctic air / snow storm on player character Thundergust [Cone KD] ----- shiver / desert winds [npc power, animation only] Microburst [T AoE Stun] ----- flashfire / Hail of Debris [Vortex Pet Power] ** Keening Winds [T AoE Confuse] ----- mass confusion / heart of darkness Vaccum [T AoE Hold] ----- glacier / Dimension Shift OR Shadowfield + ninja sand choke animation on targets Vortex[Pet] ----- ice golem / Storm Elemental w Arctic Fog or Frozen Aura fx OR Haunt-Shade, base color altered to light grey/brown Pet Powers: Blast of Debris [ST Ranged] ----- Throw Spines / Desert Winds [npc power, animation only] Whirlwind [PB AoE] ----- unknown / hurricane Hail of Debris [T AoE DoT] ----- NEW WIND ANIMATION [see image] ** Crash of Thunder [T AoE Stun] ----- Thunderclap/Thunderclap Below is a list of wind related or powers with wind like fx, that might also be swapped out: storm summoning's gale, snowstorm, hurricane, tornado, speed's whirlwind, leviathan mastery's water spout, scirocco's dust devil and desert wind, Direwolf's Chilling Howl and Terrible Howl, cold/ice's frost breath, shiver, chill, snow storm, ice armor fx, chilling embrace, arctic fog, street justice's spinning strike, psionic tornado, darkness control's heart of darkness and shadowfield [if made base white instead of base black], martial combat's throw sand, time manipulation heal over time fx, sonic's shockwave, regrowth [minus leaves] kinetic meelee's concentrated strike. Thank you for coming to me TED talk.
  19. Alright, there occasionally pops out the idea of making a "just for fun" pool only toon... Well, how about making two new powersets, Pool Primacy Offensive & Pool Primacy Defensive. They would use the pool powers as base and expand on them: Melee Set Pool Primacy: Offensive T1: Boxing+ T2: Kick+ T3: Jump Kick+ (changed to narrow cone) T4: Tactical Assault (combination of Tactics & Assault) T5: Air Superiority+ T6: Provoke+ T7: Invoke Panic+ T8: Cross Punch+ T9: Spring Attack+ Armor Set Pool Primacy: Defensive T1: Weave+ T2: Tough+ (~12.5 S/L, ~10 E/N/F/C/T/P) T3: Injection+ T4: Strong Invisibility (Similar to Superior Invisibility, but only 125' Stealth) T5: Acrobatics+ (Auto, 7.5 to all resist & moderate broad-spectrum mez resist) T6: Maneuvers+ T7: Field Medic's Aid (Powerful PBAoE team heal) T8: Whirlwind+ (no repel, KD, -ToHit, -Dmg) T9: Unrelenting+ Alright, this is still in the development stage, and the numbers will need to be looked at so that it is not too powerful, but still playable. The offense is mainly Single Target, with a little bit of AoE. The defense is a broad-spectrum layered defense.
  20. Power Armor - suggestion for a ranged set that could be made available for Blasters, Corruptors, Defenders and Sentinels. This powerset specializes on inflicting -REGEN to enemies (because plasma burns are hard to heal). Powerset is inspired by various adds those wear suit of protective armor, and Arachnos Soldiers do it too, but not everyone wants to play as spider. This my suggestion allows to have more diversity for themes those don't need superpowers to be superhero. -REGEN effect is not used in any damage sets widely (except, maybe beam rifle, but it has just a couple powers with it). Along with -DAMAGE effect, but that one may be inflicted with another new set - Celestial/Holy Light powerset (Kheldian peacebringers powers transformed into Ranged Set, no crabs or squids or glowing eyes), making the latter awesome choice for Empathy defenders those seek to protect their team. As for Power Armor - its -REGEN is more potent on Defenders too. But more closely to Our current set - Power Armor - it utilizes various high tech weapons, built in your armored suit, and these weapons may be fired separately or even together (Heavy Ordnance Ability?) to lay waste at your enemies. This is mah first version of this set: it's not final and is still open for extra ideas: Tier 1: Plasma Blast Click, Single Target Projects a bolt of plasma at a targeted enemy from your Hand Cannon. Low damage, but fast recharge and animation. Lowers enemy's Regeneration Rate. X Energy Damage. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec. (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) Accept Enhancement Sets: Ranged Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Tier 2: Plasma Burst Click, Single Target Projects several small bolts of plasma at a targeted enemy in rapid succession. Has bigger activation & recharge times, but bigger damage as well. Lowers enemy's Regeneration Rate. X ticks of Y Energy Damage for Z sec. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec (more than Plasma Blast). (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) Accept Enhancement Sets: Ranged Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Tier 3: Chest Plasma Wave Click, Midrange Cone AoE (range is lower than the rest of Power Armor powers), 10 targets max (6 for Sentinels) Releases a massive wave of energized plasma in front of you, dealing damage to your enemies, lowering their Regeneration Rate and potentially Knocking them Down. X Energy Damage. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec. (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) 20% Chance to 0.67 Magnitude Knockback. Accept Enhancement Sets: Targeted AoE Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Animation: like lDF human enemies in respective Incarnate Trial (where you don't shoot civilians) shoot at you - a ringed wave. Tier 4: Charged Plasma Blast Click, Single Target Charges up and launches at enemy highly concentrated two-handed ball of supercharged plasma. Has noticeable windup time and rather slow recharge, but is also a lot more potent. It lowers Regeneration Rate for a decent time, and also briefly holds the target. X Energy Damage. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec. (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) 3 Magnitude Hold for X sec. Accept Enhancement Sets: Ranged Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO, Holds Tier 5: Aim (may be exchanged for some extra thematic power you can imagine or just renamed to "Lock On" or something) Tier 6: Rocket Launcher Click, Targeted Sphere AoE, 15' radius, 16 targets max (10 for Sentinels) Locks on and fires at a targeted enemy an explosive missile. Explosion radius hits all nearby enemies as well. Rocket blast can Knock some enemies Down. X Lethal Damage. 50% change to 0.67 Magnitude Knockback Accept Enhancement Sets: Targeted AoE Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Animation: left shoulder-mounted rocket launcher. Animation time is long, so is recharge time, but it's compensated with damage. Tier 7: Hunter Drone Toggle When toggle active it's PBAoE 80 ft Damage, but 1 Targets max, suppresses when you are not in battle. Detoggles upon mezzing. While active - a technologically advanced drone hovers around you, locks on at nearby enemy and assaults it with plasma bolts. This is a toggle power and it consumes your Endurance while active. Plasma shots from Drone cannon can reduce enemy Regeneration Rate. The drone cannot be damaged, however, this power may be detoggled by mezzing owner. When this toggle ticks: X Energy Damage. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec. (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) Accept Enhancement Sets: Ranged Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Technically free damage, neat, right?.. Tier 8: Machine Gun Click, Targeted Narrow Cone AoE (5 degrees cone), full range (80' for Blaster), 3 Targets Max Barrages several targets on a line with deadly burst of armor piercing rounds. These round also can reduce targets' Resistance to all damage types for a while. X ticks of Y Lethal Damage over Z sec. -X Resistance to all Damage. (Ignores Buffs and Enhancements) Accept Enhancement Sets: Targeted AoE Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO Animation: right shoulder-mounted minigun. Animation time is long, recharge time, though, allows chains like Plasma Blast->Charged Plasma Blast->Plasma Blast->Machine Gun for single targets. Tier 9: Heavy Ordnance Click, Targeted Sphere AoE (20' radius), 16 Targets Max (10 for Sentinels) Unleash everything you have got at your disposal and fiercely assault location around the targeted foe, dealing Extreme Energy and Lethal damage to everyone nearby. This significantly lowers Regeneration rate of enemies, and has fair chance to Knock Down or Stun them. X ticks of Y Energy Damage over Z sec. X ticks of Y Lethal Damage over Z sec. -50% (-66.7% for Defender) -REGEN for X sec (long time). 80% chance to 0.67 Magnitude Knockback. 50% chance to 3 Magnitude Stun for X sec. Accept Enhancement Sets: Targeted AoE Damage, Universal Damage Sets, ATO, Stuns Animation: unified plasma beam from both Hand Cannons and Chest Cannon, together with shooting both Rocket Launcher and Machine Gun. This cover targeted area with 2 explosions - energy explosion from plasma weapons and ballistic explosion from the rocket. *Names are not final.
  21. Just for natural controller feel... Not sure how this controller works on robotic enemies thematically though especially on malta robots but I'm open to suggestions. Tier 1 : [Crippling Finger] : You cripple enemies movement by damaging target's pressure/weak point. (Melee ST Immobilize moderate smash DoT. - Fly/jump ) Tier 2 : [Pressure Kick] : You damaged target's vital pressure/weak points with pressured kick making them vulnerable to further damage and locking them in pain. (Melee ST Hold moderate smash damage. Special = Resistance debuff.) Tier 3 : [Spinning Kick] : You spin your legs while targeting enemy's pressure/weak points to launch them into air. (Melee Cone Immobilize(After knockup) Minor Smash DoT. Special = Knockup - Fly/Jump) Tier 4 : [Thunder Kick] : You strike enemy with your kick so hard that enemies left disoriented and crippled. (Melee ST Stun Minor Smash DoT. Special = -Recharge/Speed/Movement) Tier 5 : [Hypnotizing Strike] You strike your nimble fingers on targets vital pressure/weak points and making them sleep. (Melee ST Sleep. Special = -Recharge/Speed/Movement after sleep is broken) [No Aggro] Tier 6 : [Limitbreak] : You break your limit by pressing vital pressure points. (Self: +Recharge +Movement Speed, Foe -Recharge -Movement Speed and All hardcaps temporary lifted for 30 seconds.(Crash= All hardcaps lowered for 30 seconds) Or/and By breaking your limits you exude great pressure to weaker foes. Additional effects = Toggle: PBAoE Taunt %300 , PBAoE Fear 3 Mag and To hit Debuff for 30 seconds. (Toggle drops when 30 seconds passed) Tier 7 : [Throw Sand] : You grab some nearby debris and fling it towards a nearby foe, obstructing their vision and dazing them. !NEW(Self +Placate if Stun doesn't apply) (Ranged Cone Foe Stun, -Perception.) (This is taken from Martial Combat) Tier 8 : [Blurry Fingers] : You strike nearby enemies pressure/weak points so fast that they are locked in pain and they can't move. (PBAoE Chance to Hold every X seconds) Minor Smash DoT (Special = Damage debuff) Tier 9 : [Distorted Perception] You strike on special pressure/weak points. Targets unable to move and locked in slowed perception. (Melee (Targeted AoE) Stun. Minor Smash DoT (-Recharge/Speed/Movement and (Perception/Range Debuff after Stun is broken) !NEW(Self +Defense. (Defense values are enhanced in Limitbreak mode.) NEW! [Limitbreak] only : All your single target melee powers transforms into ranged powers. When you activate your powers from ranged for example your silhouette goes into melee range while you stay still. Or All your Single Target melee powers teleports you to foe similar to nightcrawler.
  22. Just fun idea I though of. Spirit Summoning Tier 1 [Spirit Touch] : (Melee range Click)You sap vitality of target healing you and nearby allies and giving enemies [Lingering Touch], -regen, -damage. Tier 2 [Haunted Visions] : (Click)(Can only click ground)(Lasts 1 min?) You haunt target's mind and anyone near that giving enemies To hit debuff, -Recharge and pulse of Fear aura every few seconds. Tier 3 [Spirit Insight] (Click) : You absorb some knowledge from defeated targets. Giving you and nearby allies +Perception, +To Hit and +Endurance discount. More enemy the more powerful buff up to 10 stacks. (Buffs have halved value if enemies are alive) Tier 4 [Ethereal Presence] (Toggle) You and nearby allies masks presence with spirit touch. Giving you and allies +Stealth, +Def (All), Resistance to Energy, Negative Energy, Cold, Fire, Psionic. And protection to Confuse, Fear, Immobilize. Tier 5 [Spirit Veil] (Click) You opened dimension between living world and spirit world for protection. Giving you and nearby allies +MaxHP +Regen and Resistance to Smash, Lethal, Psionic, Energy, Toxic. Tier 6 [Summon Spirit] [Toggle] You summon spirit from spirit world for help. This spirit is intangible and does only debuff your targets but has taunt aura. Enemies that attacking spirit is terrorized. Giving them To hit debuff. (Passive : To hit debuff aura with mag 3 fear that pulses every few seconds in melee range) Tier 7 [Ethereal Walk] [Click] Your insights into how spirit works giving you edge against living world. You and nearby allies has increased +Recharge +Movement Speed and +Defense to all. Tier 8 [Summon Ghost] [Click] You summon ghost from one of defeated enemies. Ghost is resistant to smash, lethal, negative energy, toxic, cold but vulnerable to energy, fire. (Ghost attacks : Spirit Punch : Minor energy/smash damage with knockdown/damage debuff) (Lingering Touch : Ghost touches living enemy. For 30 seconds after that if enemy is defeated, it automatically rises as ghost. For up to 10 ghosts may be active anytime. (Alive enemies only = Gives them 3 mag stun with regen/recovery debuff.) Tier 9 [Summon Wraith] [Click] You summon Vengeaful Wraith by sacrificing your ghosts. More ghosts you have before activating [Summon Wraith] the stronger the Wraith will become after summoning. (Wraith : Ethereal Grip : Minor to High Smash/Negative Energy damage with To hit debuff. Chance to hold.) (Lingering Touch: Same as ghosts.) (Fearsome Stare) (Dark Obliteration) (Passive : +Def to All and +movement speed. Resistance same as ghosts. (After Wraith dies it releases negative energy damage burst that terrorize nearby enemies.) (You can technically summon Wraith without ghost. But it is only stronger then normal ghost little bit.)
  23. Doppelgängers Basic Idea: A mastermind primary set that summons clones of enemies hit by its attacks. How it may work: The powerset contains 3 summon powers: Minion Doppelganger, Lieutenant Doppelganger, and Boss Doppelganger. Unlike other MM sets, these summon powers are ranged Single Target attacks. When these powers hit an enemy of the valid type, a doppelganger of that enemy will be summoned at the player's side as a pet. The power also stores the enemy's info for later. If these powers are used without an enemy target selected, they will instead use stored enemy info to summon a doppelganger pet but at a higher endurance cost. Doppelgangers have the same powers and appearance of the enemy they were cloned from but have their levels adjusted relative to the player's combat level. (-2 for minions, -1 for lts) If the enemy hit cannot be adjusted down to the appropriate level then a pet is not created and enemy info is not stored. This also applies to stored enemy info. This is to prevent low level or exemplared MMs from using high level pets that can't drop down to their level. The player can have up to 3 Minions, 2 Lieutenants, and 1 Boss depending on level like other MM sets. Summoning a new doppelganger will replace the oldest of the same type if already at maximum for that type. Minion Doppelganger has 3 different slots for storing enemy info while Lieutenant Doppelganger has 2. This is for storing a variety of different enemies to these powers. Boss only has 1. Each use of these powers will cycle through their slots one at a time. If on slot 1 when used, Minion Doppelganger will only summon or replace the enemy info of slot 1 then step to slot 2 for the next use. Doppelgangers will spawn behind the player without needing a target location, similar to the way Energy Font pets are summoned from the Controller's Overpowering Presence ATO. What about the other powers? The attack powers could be magic ranged attacks that use the Dark Blast or Energy Blast animations, something that would appear fitting in most factions for theme builds. The Equip powers would not grant new powers but instead be generic and permanent buffs to base stats for the doppelgangers, such as increased HP. Custom AE enemies? If the enemy storing system works then this could be an alternate way to have custom MM pets. Create your pets as enemies in AE, run a test mission, then store their enemy info by attacking them with the appropriate powers. This would also save the need to create a new costume/ability editor just for custom pets. Because of custom powers, AE pets will no doubt be broken and overpowered without limitations in place. Perhaps a filter could be added to prevent the use of AE enemies if their Experience Value is over 100% for the MM's combat level. This unfortunately may require frequent adjustments to the custom enemies when sidekicking or exemplaring. Will it be overpowered anyways? Yes. Somebody will inevitably find a really good combination of enemies to clone but I don't think it'll make the game less fun. It will be really entertaining to see what doppelganger teams people will come up with, or themed teams such as all Longbow or Family. There are also some really interesting enemies out there to consider like healers, enemies with summons of their own like Sky Raider Engineers, enemies that have on-death mechanics, or the Possessed Scientists that can cast Fortitude on allies. The game Path of Exile has a spell with a similar functionality called Summon Spectre, which summons a clone of a nearby dead enemy to fight by your side. These clones are stored to the ability like I described above so you can re-summon them if you disconnect or change zones. People have found really good and almost game-breaking combinations of spectres to use. It's quite fun to experiment with.
  24. I decided to take a stab at making a Control powerset that I’ve been tossing around in my head for a while. Manipulating insects was either going to be a Mastermind or Control powerset, but I eventually settled on the latter; I figured it made more sense to direct swarms that way, over having a small group of pets. It’s actually my first time doing something like this, so hopefully it impresses! I don’t have the best of heads for numbers in the game, but I do hope it turned out alright. Especially since this powerset in particular is very focused on numbers, as can be seen in the power breakdowns for each of them. I tried to keep the ‘feel’ of controlling insects throughout – overwhelming enemies through slow, persistent attrition; a game of gradually grinding at things. It sacrifices immediate control for the promise of eventually locking down the entire battlefield. Hopefully it shows through the different powers on display! Insect Control Power Table Power Level Effect Plague 1 Ranged, Moderate DoT (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Knockdown, -DMG Blight 1 Ranged, Moderate DoT (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Hold, -DMG Webbing 2 Ranged (Targeted AoE), Minor DoT (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Immobilize, -Fly, -DMG Swarm Cloud 6 Ranged (Targeted AoE), Foe -Range, -Perception Insect Cloak 8 Toggle: PBAoE, Team Stealth, +DEF(All) Bug Burst 12 PBAoE, Minor DMG (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Fear, -DMG Ground Crawlers 18 Ranged (Location AoE), Minor DoT (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Knockdown, -DMG Infestation 26 Ranged (Location AoE), Minor DoT (Lethal/Toxic), Foe Hold, -DMG Insect Colony 32 Summon Colonies: Melee, Minor DoT (Lethal/Toxic) Powers Blight Harasses a target with biting and stinging insects, leaving them helpless under the swarm while taking moderate Lethal damage.
