Alternate builds

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just noticed on a char that, whenever I select an alternate build, ALL my temp powers, Team Teleport, Mission Transporter, Assemble the Team, SG Portal, Long Range Teleport.... all of them automatically count as if I had activated them and some of them have a LONG recharge. Can this be avoided anyhow? Some chars have an alternate build to exemplar down but it is a pain having to wait 30 min for the mission transporter to recharge (and being lvl 14 and having to cross Perez Park sometimes is not that easy).

 

If it has an easy fix, then it would be appreciated if you guys can apply it, if not an easy one to fix, well, then I guess there are more important things to spend time on, in any case, thanks for reading.

when you change builds, all powers go on recharge, not just temp powers.  I suspect this has to do with preventing people from switching builds to get powers to recharge faster.

Yup.  One of the design goals behind alternate builds was preventing them from being used tactically.

Although, with the new tech demonstrated in the Accolade Powers between Hero and Villain alignments and the Jump Packs, I wonder if that couldn't be leveraged to allow for the Really Long Recharge Prestige/Transit Powers to share their cooldown between Builds.

How feasible would that be?

If they could do that it would be cool, but I think it's a low priority issue at most. Understanding that I myself make use of macros to swap my builds on the fly for my Archanos and Kheldian characters. That said, I take into account blowing my CDs when I swap.
