  1. Not sure if anyone's doing any Mission Architect content outside of farms these days so I thought I'd mention that I did a thing. In particular, said thing is a Mission Architect story that spans across 3 arcs (i.e., 15 missions), basically making a task force of sorts. Story Details Sergeant DaCosta's Task Force Morality: Heroic Levels: 40 - 54 Keywords: Non-canon, Ideal for teams, Custom characters Length: Very Long (3x 5 missions) Agents of Change, Part 1: The American Way (Arc ID 48597) Chapters 1 - 5 As a simple favor for Captain Nolan, you've been asked to help out with PPD Sergeant Giancarlo DaCosta's department as they have been stretched thin lately. But now something suspicious is going down in PI and you find yourself having more than the occasional run-in with the US Agency as you go investigate. Wait, the US what? Who even are these guys? Agents of Change, Part 2 - Taken Identities (Arc ID 48598) Chapters 6 - 10 Your involvement with the US Agency isn't over yet. Your continuing investigation for Sgt. DaCosta has now looped in SWAT Lieutenant Martin Zarovsky's own investigation, bringing you to some familiar (and, in some cases, too familiar) faces as you both chase down the truth behind the impersonating act you witnessed earlier. Is a larger conspiracy at hand? Agents of Change, Part 3 - A Foreign Soil (Arc ID 48599) Chapters 11 - 15 The truth behind the seeming duplicity you witnessed earlier has revealed something of an inhuman plot and it would appear that the US Agency is mixed up in it. But are things really what they seem to be? Your continuing investigation is taking you places and Sergeant DaCosta is looking to your task force team to save the day. Story Features & Caveats - Custom baddies as well as allies across 4 unique (and well-populated) factions. - So much flavor text, so much story text: Pay attention to the Clues gained and Mission Start/End Popups. Everything is right-clickable for more info. There is story everywhere. Even some little jokes and references. - Despite the amount of flavor added to parts of the arcs, some missions only really require a couple items to complete (in spite of the number of glowing things making glowie noises at you). - 4 of the total 15 missions will be legitimately fail-able to impart a sense of urgency. So be careful. - There are a couple defeat-alls but none of them will be timed missions. To balance this out, there are also some small mapped missions. - The difficulty increases the further you go into the entire 15 mission arc. The difficulty starts at Easy from Missions 1-5, then it scales up a little to medium for Missions 6-10 and then it's mostly medium-hard for Missions 11-15. If you give this a play-through, let me know if you encounter any errors and typos. As it is, I encountered quite a few bugs in dealing with Mission Architect and made do the best I could. Please be kind in your comments. Enjoy.
  2. I’ll be the first to admit that controllers don’t always feel great in the end game. Rolling nukes and super IO builds that need little support leave a traditionally low damage AT that specializes in creating safety out in the cold. But rather than lament those shortcomings, I embrace being left out in the cold. I prefer instead to ask, not what I bring to a team, but rather, what does a team bring to me? Grab a blanket and curl up by the fire because it is about to get cold Character: Frosticus Build 1: Illusion/Cold/Psi (survival build) Build 2: Illusion/Cold/Stone (damage build) Build 3: Illusion/Cold/Primal (retired generalist build seen in a few screens) (All the following are with NO insp/temps/lore/amplifiers) So far I have: MoAPEX MoMarketCrash MoITF MoLGTF MoLRSF MoKhan Some GM's/AV's (NO insp/temps/lore/amplifiers) -Sinclair lvl 54+3 -Mot lvl 54+3 -Lusca -Jack/Eochai -Council Goliath Warwalker (GM) -Kronos Class Titan (GM) -Lt. Sefu Tendaji lvl 54 -Siege lvl 54 (BAF version w/ rings of death) Kicking it off with: MoApex Got this on my first attempt. None of my other characters have made it to the final mission under these restictions. The Toxic snake pits can tear down builds in moments. Turns out they tear themselves apart pretty quickly too! Battlemaiden isn’t “that” hard for ranged characters (just shoot and move), the surge of adds causes my summons to lose focus slowing the fight down a fair amount. The previous mission with wave after wave of warwalkers always overwhelms my other characters. I found that it relieves enough pressure if I confused one of the warwalkers and then took on the rest during each wave.
  3. I put together this list from the sticky post for the Weekly Strike Targets for Double Merits (List at the bottom of this post) I got tired of looking up how many merits were awarded for each Task Force/Strike Force/Trial. The one-off reward (Double Reward Merits + Notice of the Well or bonus XP) can only be earned once per character, per week, even if there’s more than one Strike Target. This list may have some errors, the information came from the Homecoming Wiki which is somewhat incomplete. Hopefully this helps others to make informed decisions about how they want to gain their double merits. The number of missions includes the street hunts.

  4. Collection: Solo-friendly AV/GM/TF Builds Hi all. I've grown an interest in soloing in CoH, and did a fair bit of playing and reading up. I've collected what I've found and my own experiences playing a titan/bio, ill/rad, and ill/traps (incomplete) controller. I've also broken it down by content difficulty level, based on my experience. It's incomplete, so I'm hoping people will respond here to add in their experiences with builds I haven't listed. I'd especially like to know about MM's, ill/storm|cold, and fortunatas for harder & near-impossible content -- these are mentioned often but ppl don't say what content they can solo. Also, I don't play villain-side, so those are unknown. Without further ado: **************************************** Hard to solo: AV's for Accolades (Maria Jenkins, etc.) Most hero-side GM's ITF, regular setting Known viable builds: Ill/traps|rad|cold, Fire/ice blaster, @Chirikiti's mind/psy dominator, titan/bio scrapper Speculated: @Werner [email protected] Z Bubba's brute builds, @nihilii's fire/rad sentinel, Fire/fire blaster, empathy/? defender, Masterminds, Fortunatas, ill/storm, ill/cold, most scrappers, most brutes, @Elmyder's fire/fire blaster Harder: Sutter: Ill/rad unknown Katie Hannon: Ill/rad unknown Babbage (level-limited): Ill/storm known LGTF: Ill/traps unknown ITF +4/x8: empathy/? defender, brute builds below, ill/rad, Dark Armor/Martial Arts Tank, fire/rad sentinel, fire/ice, fire/time, dev/time blasters, sav/shield stalker, ill/therm, ill/traps are known AVs +4/x8: brute builds below, fire/rad sentinel are known Market Crash: Apex: empathy/? defender, demon/cold MM known Tin Mage: empathy/? defender known Jurassik: Goliath War Walker: Known viable builds: Ill/rad | cold, titan/bio scrapper, Elmyder's fire/fire blaster Speculated: Ill/traps, Werner's and Bill Z Bubba's brute builds, Nihilii's fire/rad sentinel, empathy/? defender, Chirikiti's mind/psy dominator Near-impossible: Kahn TF: corruptor (fire/cold) known, Frosticus' ill/cold controller (MoKhan), ill/therm, cold/sonic defender STF / MLTF: Nihilii's fire/rad sentinel known Known viable builds: titan/bio scrapper, Elmyder's fire/fire blaster ************************************ Sources: - Search for posts in the Brute AT sub-forum from @Werner & @Bill Z Bubba - Search for @Nihillii's post on "Silly Sentinel Tricks" on Sentinel AT sub-forum - Search for "Solo" and "AV/GM killer" posts - Titan/bio scrapper guide on Scrapper AT sub-forum - Ill/traps vs. Ill/rad threads on Controller AT sub-forum - Frosticus' Crazy Controllers 2021 edition post on Controller AT-sub-forum
