About Me

  1. So in my pursuit of more chaos with my beloved necro pets, I made a necro/electric....yes call me DOKTOR FRANKENSTEIN. Not the Gene Wilder type...well maybe a little of that and and some Von Brunn....for the muahaha! Well without further adieu my build...and YES be savage in your critique. | Copy & Paste this data into Mids Reborn : Hero Designer to view the build | |-------------------------------------------------------------------| |MxDz;1427;696;1392;HEX;| |78DA6594DB4E13511486F7D0A9950296528E520EA5506A5B0AF5010439992835241| |8A257CD643A8509ED0C694B221EC3537
  2. I was looking at making a new troller with the poison power, but I don't know which power to pair it with. I was looking at plant, but yet dark, fire, earth look nice to. I would like a power that goes well with poison. In your guys/gals opinion which power brings the best bang for the buck. I have read that plant is a power house all around and I know earth is a good power for lock downs and cc. What does dark bring to the table with poison and if I recall right fire with poison is just a weak version of the plant build. I have been over thinking this and I want to get back on th
  3. Hi heroes! Going to pull the trigger on my first Defender. I'm a historical Tanker/Scrapper player, so I'm looking forward to playing something a bit more supportive. I've always enjoyed teaming, so I feel a Defender shines there. That being said, I'd also love to having something that can solo well and deal with AV's/tough enemies. Some combos I was looking at: Storm/Water or Dark Blast: Storm I hear shines on a Defender. Pairing it with either Water or Dark Blast for a heal seems like it could be nice! Trick Arrow/Dual Pistols: Sounds sweet, bu
  4. So my understanding (which is very minimal) is that you have to have Evasive Maneuvers toggled on, as well as, Flight or Hover to get the benefit. I already take Maneuvers from Leadership, and on my Dark/Sonic defender I also have Tough/Weave. Is having another toggle in Evasive Maneuvers that good, or did we kind of get screwed a little in the last patch (granted free Afterburner is great, but I wonder if Evasive Maneuvers could be respecced out for something better)? Please help me understand exactly what this power does and what everyone's thoughts are on how to best use or lose
  5. I’m sure I’ve seen this somewhere, but my search efforts are failing. How to make a macro that gives an inspiration (by type) to a minion (by name)? TIA!
  6. So...fiddling around on Mids and just making builds, then got into the thought process to see what would be a better GM/AV killer, solo TF runner, honestly I see that its easier on /Rad to get perma PA and better -regen. But, Psn has its strengths too with -recov in psn trap and comperable debuffs. Granted this is by numbers that I can see but, honestly which would be the better of the two? The smaller radius of debuff on Psn is something to be considered but /Rad active toggle on RI to me is a drain, /Rad is a killer to be sure but would Psn as a faster debuff be beneficial for quick str
  7. Trying to finish up on my final build for my Ill/Psn troller, so what Hybrid to take? I've heard conflicting stories on Support and Assault and if they actually benefit PA. So which one?
  8. How do you put a permanent signature to your posts? I'd like to set a link but have zero idea how to do it. I tinkered around with some of the profile settings but couldn't find anything.
  9. Hi heroes (and villians 😄)! As a primarily melee based player (I've 50'd a few tankers, brutes, stalkers and scrapper), I've decided I wanted to try my hand at my first ranged Archetype! Corruptors appeal to me because SCOURGE (it always is nice seeing it pop over enemies heads while I'm in the fray), as well them being a bit of a hybrid of a blaster/defender. I like having some options to help support the team, as well as lay down some hurt of my own 🙂 After doing some research on the forums, I've found a few primaries and secondaries that seem to work fairly "optimall
  10. Hi all, So I’ve been leveling a Rad/DB Tanker and having a good time. I originally shied away from using Dual Blades because of the combo system, but I’ve found an attack string that works for me with Blinding Feint - Ablating - Vengeful Slice - Sweeping Strike. However, I haven’t found many sample builds for this combo anywhere on the forums. I was curious if anyone had a build they’d be willing to share or could answer some questions: 1. As a Tanker, should I be grabbing Typhon’s edge for it’s increased AOE? I don’t feel it falls into my optimal attack cha
  11. Just started one of these out on red side due to a character concept I came up with, but it seems like sonic secondary is mostly for team-based play?
  12. Mucking about on mids with a classic f/rad controller and thinking about the timing of Posi 2 and getting LR started me wondering about the utility of -regen powers in an age of dirt cheap daggers. Do you still spend a power pick getting -regen? Howling Twilight has the rez and stun, but LR only has a minor slow.
  13. I’m sure this is already answered somewhere... https://hcwiki.cityofheroes.dev/wiki/Dual_Pistols#Suppressive_Fire Looks like using swap ammo removes the KB/KU effect entirely. Would the +recharge proc still fire without the secondary effect in the attack? TIA!

    Ice Armor!

    Hey all! Maybe it was to do with Mortal Kombat coming out this week, but I want to give Ice Armor a go, and I think it seems like it would be a good fit on a Scrapper! Bastion seems like a pretty sweet T9. I don't see many Ice Armor heroes while I'm playing, so it thought I'd come to the forums and see if anyone had some advice! Potential pairings: Ice Melee/Ice Armor: Because I want to be COOL. Psi Melee/Ice Armor: Since both powersets have a -recharge, I felt it was pretty synergistic! In a way you're effectively making yourself a bit more tanky s
  15. Hi all! Does anyone know if Chilling Embrace ticks while you're hidden, and if that would impact your free crit with the Stalker ATO? Thanks!

    Bad Luck Badge

    Hi Guys After reaching 50 I learned about something useful called Accolades. Now I am kinda stuck on this one where I need to get the Bad Luck badge. But can't access the quest giver named Hard Luck. Since I need to do a mission from a Broker. How do I do that when I have outleveled the zone?
  17. So...I have a build for everything in game, GM killa, team player, solo, farmers, merit farmer, pvp, etc. I figured what better place to ask than here in the Badge section. BUT, I don't have an AT in mind for a badger, and I seriously want to start one. I know you need heals, good aoe for defeat badges, survivability especially against AV/GM, pvp, etc. What do you use for your badger, I had a Demon/Therm MM in mind but, I'm unsure. Thoughts?
  18. Hi all! So one of my absolute favorite heroes that I have made is my Dark Armor/Staff Fighting Tanker. Staff Fighting I feel works great on a Tanker, with the extra defense and resistance ratios they get. He is pretty much an unkillable beast. That being said, I’ve enjoyed Staff Fighting so much, I want to roll another. Stalker stuck out to me since they retain Staff’s AOE, but ALSO bring some nice single target damage. I’m curious if anyone has experience as a Staff Stalker, and what secondary they may recommend! I was looking at: Staff/Nin: Because Ninja. I
  19. I'm devloping a Superman type hero TANKER and I want to go with either Invuln or Rad (I can make Rad work as Solar Energy :P). I'm just curious though: Between Rad Armor and Invuln, which do you feel is the absolute toughest for most endgame content? How I see it so far: Invuln: + Solid resists across the board. Psi hole can be plugged with impervium armors. + Easier to cap some defenses than on Rad. + Good DDR to stop defense failure. - Very little endurance management (can be fixed with IO's) - No damage added (PBAOE moves) Rad Armor: + Very strong resists
  20. Hey all, So here I was, tanking for an ITF, when this Elec/Elec Sentinel has the GALL to leap frog me between camps and tank some mobs herself. All that being said, I was very impressed 😛 I'm looking to build a Sentinel myself, and I've settled on either Elec/ or Dark/ as my primary. Both are thematically cool, as well as seeming to have pretty good synergy with the Sentinel Archetype. That being said, I'm not sure what secondaries have the best synergy with either of those primaries! Elec/Elec sounds GREAT, but I just want to make sure I'm looki
  21. Hello all. Unique IOs such as Reactive Defenses: Scaling Resist Damage, or Unbreakable Guard:+Max HP, or Shield Wall:+Res All, etc... do they work on click powers, even if the power is not activated, or not? Should they be slotted into "always on powers" or toggles like Numina's and Miracle? I tried to find the answers to this but... Ty all.
  22. Hi all! I usually team with 2 buddies, and none of us roll a Defender/support style hero 😂 I've decided I'd be the first. After reading over the primaries, I've settled on Radiation Emission. I feel it has a nice mix of supportive skills, as well as some powers that will help us take down tougher targets. I'm a little stuck on which primary to choose. Leaning towards either Radiation blast (Laser beams from my eyes? Cool irradiate animation? yes please) and Dark Blast (Soul Noir FTW). Obviously, I think both look amazing! Being that this is my first defender, I'd thought I
  23. Hi heroes (and villians :P)! I'm interested in Psi Melee/Energy Aura as a power set combo. They seem to match together pretty well thematically. However, I'm having trouble deciding which archetype to try it on: Scrappers or Stalkers? Does anyone have any experience with this combo on either archetype and could give me some insight? Thanks!
  24. Hi all! I wanted to pick your brains: Which power sets, in your opinion, are most optimal on a scrapper? I've recently rolled several tankers and brutes, but I miss scrappin' it out! I know the obvious answer is TW/Bio. Rolled one for a bit, wasn't for me. I also hear great things about DM/Shield having great synergy. This makes sense to me, as I've rolled 2 Shield Defense Tankers and what the set is missing out on is a heal (as well as some way to take care of endurance). Dark Melee helps cover these areas. Are there any other power sets/combos
  25. Ok I need some clarification on taunt on scrapper, brute, and tanker. AoE vs single target, taunt power itself, how many enemies affected, etc. Most links online are wwwaaayyy outdated, and I could have sworn taunt numbers were recently changed. I might be wrong I imagine alot of things its all the acid I did. I thought I knew some shizz but recently ran into something that has changed so needs some answers that might fix it.
