I remember that from live as well.  Have not been ToT'ing yet in HC, but will try it out and see if I can duplicate your experience.  I am actually using the same machine I was playing on when CoH sunsetted, so I might see the same results.  We'll see, I'll give it a try and post my results if any.

Just ToT'd for about an hour with an SG mate from live who also remembers the "looping sound crash" when going door to door.  Neither of us crashed, we also jumped around getting Eochi and Jack and did the banner event, no problems.  Also, I know I said this was the same machine as I used on live, but really it's just the same motherboard.  I've replaced almost everything else, especially the graphics card, twice.

 

Sorry - I guess I won't be much help diagnosing this after all.

No offense, but was there a reason you quoted the entire message to add a two line reply?

They're not TF's but story arcs. And the level range is clearly posted in the OP you helpfully quoted all of.

They're 25-29, so if you were trying to find them with 50s, that doesn't surprise me.  They'll be in the Ouro crystals, though.

By the way, small thing... Mystic Flight has a setting to turn off the extra power tray by talking to Null the Gull. It would be nice if Mighty Leap had this as well, since the mechanic is the same.

Rikti Mothership missions and LFG changes sound great!!!

So after even more further review I've just come to realize that the Force of Will pool may change how I play 80% of my toons...especially when it comes to high risk high rewards builds like for example Poison and Storm.  In the very recent past I would try to rely on my controls, soft control from blast sets, combat jump, tough and weave for survival since Poison and Storm tend to out threat/aggro most Tankers on teams....but when you take Unrelenting + Unleash Potential with high enough recharge in your build it fills the void of that much needed protection that the previous method did in another way.  Taking this route has it's risks too because you'll be subjected to getting mezzed unlike the old tough and weave way which you were able to slot with +Mezz resistance procs.

I am again impressed and I love how well Force of Will just naturally fits in the game and with SO many styles of play.  I cannot wait for the other pools in the future and I can't wait to donate even more money to the Homecoming team.  Now excuse me I need to redo all of my builds in MIDS 😅.

Yes. They are NOT TFs. But.... Past the max level, you have to access them in the Oro crystal which IS a TF....

Let me get on the editor and make sure I did everything correct on my end to double check. But I've noticed on pretty much any fire farm in AE it seems like I'm getting less

You do get less when grouped, less inf and less xp. Its like a 50% penalty per person joining you too. I don't remember it being this way before and just assumed its a homecoming change.

Yeah, there is a definite difference in xp per each extra person.

I noticed I was only getting 1XP per kill yesterday from some of the ToT spawns.

Anyone else had their characters rearranged since the update? Minor quibble, but it did undone some previous organising based upon regular use and importance of alts.

Judging from my playerslot.txt, they renamed "Reunion (EU)" to just "Reunion", and that caused the order to reset.

Weaken Resolve: You overwhelm your foe with sheer strength of will, reducing their defense damage resistance, and chance to hit! Recharge: Long

 

Is it a bug, or intended, that this power takes Accuracy enhancements, and debuffs both ToHit and Defense... but doesn't take both Accurate ToHit Debuff and Accurate Defense Debuff sets? It only takes one of the two Accurate groups, I forget which. It does take both To Hit Debuff and Defense Debuff (the non-accuracy versions), so both debuffs are enhanceable.

I love the Halloween window decorations and the spooky green window lighting!  If this was on live, I don't remember it so it must be new?

I almost forgot about Force of Will, but before I roll another toon....

 

Any idea if/when Experimentation, Gadgetry and Utility Belt will come out?

I've no idea if it's true, but someone I was ToTing with said it depended on what your difficulty level was set at.  They said it should be at +4/+8 or something.  I changed it the couple of times I ToTed and didn't see so much of that, but, well, it's a pretty chaotic scene, so who knows?

I was looking forward to the Force of Will  power pool and wondered how it would compare to Sorcery. I have used most of the  powers from Sorcery on a number of toons and find the powers fit over all. 

  • Spirit Ward - I haven't used this yet but plan to take it on toons with pets.
  • Mystic Flight is a good travel power and the teleport is useful in some situations.
  • Arcane Bolt's animation is a bit long but I have been able to work it into my attack chain quite well.
  • Enflame adds a nice boost of DOT and helps my Dom defeat immobilized and held enemies faster.
  • Rune of Protection gives some good protection for characters without armor.

I tested all of the Force of Will powers on the test server and have a lowbie Blaster using the pool on live.

 

  • Weaken Resolve - works fine.
  • Project Will - seems really slow. It would be nice if the animation was shortened - even at the expense of damage.
  • Mighty Leap - is fine as a pure Superjump clone but Takeoff feels out of place and clunky.
  • Wall of Force - I haven't tried this on my lowbie yet but on test it seemed okay.
  • Unleash Potential - its a nice power but it would be nice if it was available when the patch notes say it is.

Unleash Potential: Unleashing your potential, you grant yourself a moderate boost to defense, regeneration rate, and recovery for a short time. Unleash Potential requires you to have two other powers in the Force of Will power pool. Recharge: Very Long

My character on live is level 14 and has two FOW powers but couldn't take Unleash Potential. On test I found it was offered at level 20. The patch notes and in game notes don't mention this requirement. It would be nice if they did.

They were on live, though I don't recall what year they were added.
