  1. Hello all, First, I'm glad to be playing CoH again. I missed it. I was a lurker/poster on the old boards, so I'm looking forward to doing so here. Now, I wanted to make an I26 WP/SS Tanker based on the old guide @Heraclea made (She's an African Amazonian I've named Heracleo). I figure to take my tank to 50 on Level 25 IOs, and then look to sets to make her better. I've sketched out a Level 50 build (I'm at 35 and climbing) that I'd like some advice on, since I've never made a Willpower build before. I'm finding that she's not as Tanky as even my Invulnerability tanks were on IOs, but I see the potential of being able to survive a ton with max S/L Res, high Psi Res, and enough Defense and Regen to really shine. Please let me know if I'm missing anything obvious in this build. I'm looking to build for Defense, but don't want to go overboard if it hurts me somewhere else (And Heraclea, if you're still running your WP/SS Tank, I'd love some build advice). http://www.cohplanner.com/mids/download.php?uc=1470&c=697&a=1394&f=HEX&dc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lso, I'm reading that Homecoming fixed Rage so that the defense debuff is now unavoidable. Double Stacked Rage was the go-to on my old Brute. Is Double Stacked Rage viable anymore? How are you mitigating this issue? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hey there, So like the subject line says, I'm strongly considering making my next character a Psi Melee/Willpower Scrapper. I tried out Psi Melee last fall, and that's fine, but anything I ever knew about how to build/slot a Willpower character has evaporated over time. Anyone got any advice on this one? If you've played this recently, care to "show a little ankle" on a build? Thanks. Later on, Generator
  3. So the below build is me spending a lot of time on Mids and in-game (I actually farmed up all the enhancements below in the last couple of weeks.) I wanted some input from the community if this was just overkill and if there are any glaring issues because I've stared at it so much I'm going cross-eyed. Alpha is Agility, Destiny is Ageless and Hybrid is Assault (extra hits version.) I kept trimming back on endurance because I was so far over cap when Ageless was up and it might still be too much. I was trying to stretch as much damage and sustainability out of the build as I could. Any feedback at all would be appreciated. Thanks!

  4. I'd like to preface this by saying that I am absolutely terrible at making builds. Always was, probably always will be. In addition, this is the first build I've made since (I think) I18, so what little skill I had at making builds is probably now at least 99% composed of rust. Still, I decided to make a BS/WP Brute build, and I'd like to know how terrible it is, and what I can do to make it better. I made two versions of the build on Mids: one with IO sets and one with generic IOs - the idea being to set up the generic IOs first and then move to the sets. I've attached both Mids files; criticism is absolutely welcome and desired! Tyll'a - Brute (Broad Sword) (non-set).mxd Tyll'a - Brute (Broad Sword).mxd
  5. Hey everyone. I've been having trouble finding a consensus on WM/WP on the forums or any website in general. I started by using what builds I could find and then tweaked them with the help of the in-game Help chat and the Homecoming discord to create this build. I'd like to preemptively state that Laser Beam Eyes is a purely for fun and I'm sure there's another set that would be a better min/max. With that said, are there any other obvious improvements to be made here? This is intended to be a general max level build, not geared towards any specific activity. Shout out to Donut, LolIdk, and chev on the discord for helping put it together.

    StJ/WP Brute

    **Edited, reduced global recharge a bit. Increased AoE defense a lot** First post. Been a long time CoH/V player. Good to be back. I just found this server at the end of March and have been working on a Brute. Be gentle. First glance, my defenses look kinda low. Resists I am happy with, though. Recharge is decent. I am just looking for optimizations without sacrificing too much.

  7. Trying out my first Savage Melee/Willpower Brute, and I have questions. This is the build I've come up with in Mids thus far, and I wonder if I'm badly gimping myself. Are any of the primary or secondary powers readily skippable without too much harm? I'm strongly considering dumping Shred, as I'm not terribly fond of melee cones. That would let me move various other powers back earlier, give me skill slots to spend on Weave and a couple other places, and free up a power slot to spend on Energy Mastery/Superior Conditioning, which doesn't really need any slotting. Any other thoughts? Villain Plan by Mids' Reborn : Hero Designer 2.6.0.7 https://github.com/ImaginaryDevelopment/imaginary-hero-designer Click this DataLink to open the build!

  8. One thing I'd really like to work on, if possible, is to create a group repository of information on Sentinels as a whole, explaining what makes a strong pairing from each primary to each secondary and all of the pool powers, as well as what distinguishes Sentinels from Scrappers and Blasters. I understand that this is a big undertaking, but I think it could be extremely helpful to new players. I have some thoughts on these subjects, but the fact of the matter is, I didn't play CoX live at a very high level of proficiency and there are limits to how much I've experienced in Sentinel as-is. I will say that i would like to avoid contributions from people who are of the position that there is no such thing as a weak choice of powerset in CoX, or of the position that any powerset is so bad it should not be taken by anyone with an interest in m making the most of their characters. I believe it is possible and responsible to speak in general terms about average player performance and also support a diversity of interests. There is no wrong way to play, but I want players to be reasonably well-informed going into their choices -- at least, if they want to be. Some enjoy the discovery! I think the best way to create such a project would be for people to submit "sets" of opinions, where they analyze multiple different powersets in compare and contrast, so that we can get a feel for each reviewer's independently, then have a "czar" for that powerset synthesize all the submissions into something that succinctly reflects the consensus and any important divergences thereof. However, that assumes a large interest in this project. I don't know if anyone else would be interested in contribution. Also, accepting general feedback at this stage. Post inspired in part by @oldskool and their excellent comments in various threads. Set Sign-Up Sheet List of posters reviewing what powersets.

I'll increase the number of slots if necessary. I intend to do the synthesizing of reviews into a coherent whole and will also be doing primary reviews on a number of sets; please feel free to keep me honest and call me on my shit if you think I've done a poor job somewhere. I'm initially going to be conservative on picking sets and stick to ones I feel I have a very, very strong grasp on; I'll branch out to ones I feel I have an OK grasp on if we have a lot of holes. If you're interested in submitting a review, this is the current format. Submissions are not yet open, but will be soon barring major disagreements. Set Review Format (Tentative) Powerset Name Basic Qualities:0 If damage primary: High/Med/Low Single-Target Damage1, High/Med/Low AoE Damage2 (# Cones/# Spheres/# PBAoEs)3, High/Med/Low Control4 If survival secondary: High/Med/Low HP/Healing5, High/Med/Low Defense6, High/Med/Low Resistance7, High/Med/Low "Clicky-ness"8. If pool: The main purpose of this pool. Special Qualities: For primaries, list secondary effects here: knockback, knockdown, stun, -regen, -res, -def, etc. Do not include the benefits of Passive or Active Opportunity. For secondaries, list things that aren't defense, resistance, healing, absorbs, or max HP here. So +recharge, defense debuff resistance, any notable mez protection the set lacks or is weak in, etc. If pool: Can skip Other: Anything else that you think should be noted about this powerset. Significant changes in this powerset from their implementation on other archetypes should go here. Beginner's Notes: Any powers or strategies that are especially beneficial to low level or new players to this set. This is a good place to put down slotting ideas for before level 50 (keep it to under 10 million inf. costs please) as well as early level rotations. Skippables/Must-Haves: For primaries or secondaries, list the powers that typically are considered optional or bad. For pools, list powers that are the strongest in the set. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. Advanced Slotting: L50 builds. (sky's the limit for budget). Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. This will probably be a pretty long section that needs subdivisions, I'll work on this some more. Base Rotation: The standard attack rotation leveling up or at early 50s, for people to refine. Note any cooldown benchmarks that may be necessary for a specific rotation if it requires over 70% or so enhancement or global recharge. Complementary Choices: Suggest any primary, secondary, or pool (save ones that are mutually exclusive with this one) that synergizes with this one, and explain why. Ex: Energy Blast synergizes well with pools that contain an AoE immobilize with knockback protection and a strong melee attack to make the most of position with Nova; Dark Blast synergizes well with Dark Mastery to completely floor the opponents' accuracy. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. Incarnates: Would skip this for pool powers generally speaking, but incarnate powers that pair notably well with this powerset. Whenever possible, please explain your reasoning. 0 All measures assuming fully geared and incarnated at 50; this is just so we have an empirical baseline. 1 High: ST damage of approximately ≥230+ DPS. // Medium: ST damage of approximately 190 DPS. // Low: ST damage of approximately ≤160 DPS. If damage type is mostly Smashing or Lethal, consider it one tier lower. 2 High: Has 3+ AoEs. // Medium: Has 2 AoEs. // Low: Has 1 AoE. If damage type is mostly Smashing or Lethal, consider it as having one fewer AoE. 3 The breakdown of the number and type of each AoE type. 4 High: Reliably reduces incoming damage from the average pack of enemies by 50% or more. // Medium: Reliably reduces incoming damage from the average pack of enemies by about a third or a quarter. // Low: Controls can be beneficial sometimes but not to be relied upon. 5 High: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 10 seconds or less. // Medium: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 20 seconds or so. // Low: Unaided, can heal or absorb a third of base Max HP (400) every 40 seconds or more. Does not include the benefits of Defensive Opportunity. 6 Use values derived from Reistorm's chart located here. High: Gets S/L/E or all Positional to ≥32.5%. // Medium: Gets some of S/L/E or Positional to ≥32.5%, or gets all of S/L/E to 20%+. // Low: Any other result. 7 Use values derived from Reistorm's chart located here. High: Gets S/L to ≥45% or S/L/E to ≥30%. // Medium: Gets S/L or E o to ≥45%, or gets all to 20+%. // Low: Any other result. 8 High: Has 2+ abilities with an enhanced cooldown of a minute or less used frequently. // Medium: Has an ability virtually used on 'autocast' or an ability with an enhanced cooldown of a minute or less that otherwise needs to be frequently used for a non-healing purpose. // Low: Active abilities with enhanced cooldowns of a minute or less are rarely used for any purpose but an emergency heal. Outline (Tentative) Why Play a Sentinel? Seize the Opportunity: Sentinel Basics The Never-Ending Battle: Attack and Defense Mechanics Zoom and Enhance: Enhancement Mechanics Four-Color Fantasy: Leveling Red, Blue, Gold, and Black Primary Colors: Blast Powerset Reviews Secondary Strategies: Defensive Powerset Reviews Fly Like an Eagle: Utility Pool Reviews EPIC!: Epic Pool Reviews The Alpha and the Omega: Incarnate Mechanics A Few Provisos: Badges, Macros, and other Miscellany At the moment these are all things I intend to write myself, but I will gladly take volunteers for any sections.
  9. Good morning everyone. I'm transitioning my BS/WP Scrapper into its final phase, and looking for any and all pointers to getting the most out of the build. Looking to be viable in both solo and team play. I just wanna chop through stuff - including high level content - and come out (mostly) unscathed, as befits a Scrapper Took "Cross Punch" and beefed it up on a lark; it's fun but I'm not married to it Took "Body Mastery" because I hate running out of endurance, but if I can squeeze better End management without it that'd be great Void Judgment and Spectral Interface are chosen for concept reasons, but am open to messing with it, especially on the Interface side of things. Mostly I'm looking or help with set choices. Not a lot of people dig Broadsword, and I think I understand why; but I like it and it fits my character concept. I had to take inspiration from War Mace builds mostly. If someone has a full BS/WP build, by all means show me the money but I'll take any comments or criticism on what I've got so far!

  10. Just like the title says. I know I've seen mention of this pairing a fair amount, but scanned and didn't see any builds posted. That 3500+ build post had like 2 of them, but they were...less than impressive. Just looking for a general-purpose, solid build.
  11. I want to remake one of my old toons to play the game the long way. Captain Yesterday. He was a regen scrapper, back when they could hardly be killed. After the nerf, toast, and I left live shortly thereafter. I want to remake him as either a soft capped invl/ma tank or a soft capped willpower/ma tank. I just got into the meta of the game, and with numbers visible it all makes more sense. But I am no maestro. I'm looking to play smooth to 50, hold aggro, and not go down. I heard willpower sucks for aggro. But i was considering it because it has the of "regen lite" and I wont be sucking wind going full out attack. Hi I've seen the softcapped invulnerable build tricked out at a cost of 800 mil. I was wondering 2 things. After reading the forums and looking at builds, I am currently under the impression You can't possibly get a willpower to the soft cap for all defense and all resists. Second is there any master craftsman out there who can toss me a build? Go nuts with the money, the first thing I did when I logged back in to COH was research ways to make money, cause I didn't want to be a broke bum anymore.
  12. I am having a blast on this guy, got a Sabertooth feel going on. He had regen, endurance and dots! Only problem is, I am not so great with builds. Any ideas, what I can skip or absolute needs? I gave up on brutes and came back to my beloved tankers! I am going to work on a build my self, I just want to see what some of you more number oriented guys think. I'll post it soon!

  13. I have been looking at both of these in Pines. With 26 slots left to go I can easily get Invul def to 39.6% S/L, 37.1% E/N/F/C, and 29.5% psi, with res 90% S/L, 48.2% E/N,Toxic, 45.2% F/C, and 55.7% Psi. Regen at 216%, HP 188%, 50% DDR. At about the same amount of difficulty, Willpower has def 26.3% S/L, 37.2% F/C/E/N, 32.5% Psi with res 90% S/L, 31.1% F/C/Toxic, 34.8% E/N, and 66.5% Psi. Regen at 663%, HP 162.2%, 21.6% DDR. Willpower also has better status protection to confuse and fear, and better status resistance. I want to pair this armor set with Stone Melee. The question is, does the extra regen from Willpower compensate for lower S/L def, and lower E/N/F/C/Toxic resist, plus lower DDR? My goal is to be extremely sturdy. I want to be able to sit in the middle of multiple AVs and not worry about dying. I did an Apex/Tin Mage last night with my Spines/FA Brute, who is a good farmer but also built for normal content and has 90% S/L res and 45% S/L def. I did not like dying as many times as I did. I did not like feeling as squishy as I felt. At the same time, if I'm going to sacrifice the brute damage, I need to make up for it in surviveability, so that is the goal here. Tanking for SF and iTrials. Can you give me the pros and cons of these armor powersets, related to each other? Thanks.
  14. I'm currently playing a Willpower / Psionic Melee (up to 32 as of this posting) and could use some help optimizing the build. My goal is to get at or near the resistance cap of 90% for Smashing and Lethal, at or near the defense cap for Energy and Negative Energy, and a strong combo of Defense and Resistance for Psionic. I'd also like to fulfill my primary role as a tank who can gain and keep aggro, and contribute some damage.

  15. A friend and I want to do a "Dynamic Duo" partnership and level up together as a two-person team. He is playing a Will Power / Staff Fighting Tanker. What would be the most complimentary and effective archetype and power set to play along side him? I was thinking an empathy defender, or would some kind of controller be better?
  16. Made a short stocky character called Dwarven Bulwark that is WP/SM. Feels very SMASH to me at 17. What powers in /SM did you find that were skippable? I am eyeing Hurl Boulder and Fault but have not had the pleasure of testing them yet. Thanks!

  18. So its been a long long time since I have even thought about slot priorities and enhancement sets and ED problems when looking in to all of this. Would anyone happen to have a resource to help look into the priorities for slots and possible enhancement theory crafting for WP specifically, cause I think it then comes down to looking at what you have remaining to put into SJ after you've made sure you can't die to anything. I assume some pretty safe assumptions is, max slot every WP passive, as well as active defenses, but maybe not on the self resurrection, and I also remember throwing some taunt into Rise to the Challenge, but beyond that, I can't for the life of me remember anything else. In regards to SJ, if there are certain abilities (outside of the two AOE attacks that are no brainers for maxing slots on), is there anything in particular that should receive some slot love?
