Enhancement Boosters & Catalysts

  • Enhancement Boosters and Catalysts can now be applied directly by clicking on them, without using the Combine button
  • The confirmation dialog box is optional and can be enabled or disabled from the Options window

Teleportation Targeting & /powexec_location

  • Added a "cursor" targeting mode to /powexec_location
    • It behaves as if the power was activated with a click at the current mouse cursor location
    • This will allow you to quickly activate teleport with a hotkey without needing to click
  • Significantly improved the targeting cursor for teleportation powers and it's now much easier to reliably choose the desired destination
    • The 'red ring of doom' should rarely appear now, and it should be almost impossible to have it fall back to the character's feet
  • Fixed issues with two-side polygon collision that prevented the use of teleportation powers in a few places, the most notable being the outer ring of the Chantry / Storm Palace

New Command: /powers_togglealloff

  • Added a new /powers_togglealloff command which will toggle off all currently active toggle

Barracuda Strike Force

  • Power of Black Scorpion (the power required to kill Reichsman) is now always granted to the team leader, regardless of Archetype
    • Defenders now receive Power of Ghost Widow
    • Masterminds now receive Power of Captain Mako
  • Removed broken hospital in the first mission of the Barracuda SF which caused you to get stuck outside the map

Badges

  • Added the "Complicated" badge to Frostfire's story arc
    • This will be granted retroactively to characters that already have the arc's souvenir
  • Corrected the badge art for many "stature level" missions that were using the wrong level range or duplicate art
    • Hero badges; Negotiator, Spelunker, Plague Stopper, Spirit Warrior, Pwnz, Do No Harm, Emancipator, Meteorologist, True Nemesis, Bodyguard, Agent
    • Villain badges: Stone Cold, Bone Collector, Plague Carrier, Mask Maker

Null the Gull

  • Simplified the dialogue options for hiding pop-up trays
    • All travel powers now use the same option for hiding trays
    • Previously they all used the same flag, but presented as different dialog options - this was fine when only Origin pools had pop-up powers and you could only ever have one
    • With the standard travel powers gaining pop-up powers it was necessary to simplify this

Atlas Park & Mercy Island

  • Enemies in Atlas Park and Mercy Island should no longer reproduce like rabbits and spawn in on top of players

User Interface

  • "Current Absorb" can now be monitored in the combat attributes window
    • Note: This change may mean your currently tracked combat attributes need to be re-selected

Bug Fixes

  • The inter-dimensional Katana and Bow thief has finally be caught and brought to justice! (fixed Katanas and Bows frequently being invisible to other players)

  • Fixed an issue which allowed multiple emotes to be combined to trigger NPC-only animations and VFX
  • Fixed Veluta Lunata's story arcs requiring the Pirate badge in Ouroboros (this requirement was removed from the non-Ouroboros version of the arc a long time ago)
  • Made another attempt at fixing the Duray encounter in Admiral Sutter's Task Force
  • Storm Palace: Closed holes in the collision boundary of the zone

I presume this will work with other location targeted abilities, such as Rain of Arrows or Whirlpool? That should be pretty cool.

At a glance there's a whole lot to like.  *Sadface* for Rune though, I get the rationale but I've got a lot of respeccing in my future.  Not worth going 3 deep into Sorcery any more.  Sort of freeing in a way, it was a "must have" for certain builds, now I can consider another pool with better prereqs.

It does seem like Sorcery got overlooked in this last pass. It falls pretty far behind the rest now, imo.

This is not fixed, for NPCs at least. I ran the Miss Thystle's Plea hero tip, and the doppelganger automaton killed itself with me needing to do anything.

 

(Was it ever a problem for players? I don't seem to notice my blaster's health moving off max just standing around.)

Playing on Excelsior. Champion forever.

After looking over the list of changes, I have to say that for me this is the best QoL patch that I can remember.  The location and thumbtack changes alone are incredible.  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

I have to say, this patch is troublesome. A lot of powers (looking at you standard pools) werent really worth investing in, and suddenly are. Its a bit, well. Overwhelming. So many new char options are open.

 

I got a stone tank that is dying to get these new power mods up on live!

 

edit: Probably take fly! Woo!

Epic bug crunching.  This was some serious work/time investment and it is appreciated.  I'm very excited about the coordinate/map-pin changes.  *identifies the applause emoji he's about to use, because it looks rather like the head of a mutant chicken*  👏

This is already Live, so should probably be removed from the patch notes.

I'm just really happy to see some love spread around to some things.
Really happy with the costume bug fixes, and would love to see some more aesthetics added with them. I know this is just the first pass for the patch, but it would be great to get more costume items added for further longevity (nothing new, just maybe some pre-existing options?).

 

Can we get some screenshots of how the new Catalysts and Boosters work?

Thank you for the Hami crash fix!

Thumbtack suggestion:

Currently, clearing the thumbtack from the Nav ring does not clear it from the map.  Clearing it from the map also clears it from the Nav ring.

Suggestion: Clearing from either location should clear from both locations.

All Inherent Fitness powers are now gained at level 1 rather than level 2

 

Need to update the trainer text for level 2, since they say they grant you fitness then. Minor thing.

for the badges section, question:

 

New Badge "Complicated"

 

Good that it is grandfathered, but no description was given, on how you earn it, if not grand fathered. Could you all tell more about the how?

It's been about a year since the last time we got new base builder or tailor items. I know making new art assets isn't easy, but are there any plans to bring in more of the existing assets?

You earn it from finishing the Frostfire mission (Flux's arc in the Hollows)

 

If you have already completed Flux's arc and have the souvenir, then you'll get the badge retroactively awarded. But I believe this will mean that if you did the mission on someone else's arc, you'll need to run the mission again. (Untested claim there, need to try that out myself).

Even though this is intended to help with the Hover/Fly animation issues and also the potential issue of multiple travel powers being on and draining too much endurance, suggesting this here as it's more of a general improvement:

 

Add a new command: /powexec_toggleswap "Toggle1" "Toggle2"

  • If none of the specified toggles are active, toggle on Toggle1.
  • If both of the specified toggles are active, toggle off Toggle2.
  • If Toggle1 is active, toggle it off and toggle on Toggle2.
  • If Toggle2 is active, toggle it off and toggle on Toggle1.

 

Alternate suggestion: /powexec_togglenext "Toggle1" ... "ToggleN"

  • If none of the specified toggles are active. toggle on Toggle1.
  • If more than one of the specified toggles are active. toggle them all off, and toggle on Toggle1.
  • If only one of the specified toggles is active, toggle it off and toggle on the next toggle in the list. If the active toggle is ToggleN, wrap around to Toggle1.
