Blaster's Log, 2106.08 - levels 18-20

 

Faultline fun!  Ran Jim Temblor and Penelope Yin arcs in Faultline for nostalgia's sake.  It's been awhile since I ran those, way back in retail live.  I got to rescue Fusionette, and teamed with her and Arbiter Sands, of all people.  Then I had to rescue Penny's dad: I fully expected to buy it in the last mission.  Oddly enough, it was kind of a let down: it was a lot easier than I remembered.  Almost died a couple of times tonight (I really hate The Lost Anathema), but not in that mission.  Phew!

How can you tell a character has died?  I could be a liar!

Mediporter logs. Lord Recluse does not favour the weak. It would be better to turn yourself in and accept your fate.

The Community Information Terminals let you see how much XP debt you've accumulated - I guess a screenshot of that?

I imagine you'll also have a debt badge progress bar in the badge window somewhere, no?

 

ETA: Now I think of it, there are situations you don't earn debt for a death aren't there?  I noticed this by chance when I didn't recognize an icon in my buff bar.  Clicking on it, it said "100 debt protection during this event".  I think I was near a zone event location in Praetoria.  Also you have debt protection in the first 10 levels, right?

Pools of Mercury has reached level 21 in Praetoria.  Put in some low bids for level 25 IOs since that should save information in the long run.

Did Loyalist Power until Neutropolis where I did Responsibility and was weirded out by Mother that I went resistance, then did the Warden arc.  Still informed Marchand of stuff, but since he's as disgusted with Berry, etc... I can go with that.   Just wish the later arcs in First, Night Ward, and Primal that have the Praetorians would acknowledge the Praetorians characters instead of  treating them as new to them.   Should be feasible to do this without too much effort.  I think the one that bugs me the most is Reese in Number 6's arc. 

 

So now before leaving Praetoria, I think I'll run around and get all the exploration badges and plaques.  May have to make a second build with some flight capability though.  I think I can do the top of the building in Nova, but getting to the top of the reactor in Neutropolis seemed more problematic.

Agent V Update - 6/8/21

 

I finished up the The Vahzilok Pollutant Plot & The Clockwork Captive story arcs and leveled to Level 15. After completing both arcs, I traveled to Faultline, where I started up the first Faultline story arc. After a close call with Kurse (he kept targeting me instead of Arbiter Sands), I was able to complete the rest of the arc with little issue, gaining a level in the process. I then went ahead and completed Penelope Yin's story arc and got access to Mr. Yin's shop, where I was able to finally buy some accuracy and damage SOs for a few powers that I was not able to get from the marketplace.

 

After running a few missions, I was able to start up both the three original story arcs for this level range (The Mind of a King, Tsoo Shenanigans, & The Vahzilok Plague), as well as Graham Easton's arc. After a few missions, I spent the rest of the evening crafting IOs, getting each of the first two sets of badges. I also was able to craft a few set IOs and was to flip them for more money on the AH. By the time that I finished, I have leveled up to Level 18 and picked up the snipe for BR.

Right so deaths before level 11 dont count?  Or honor system?

 

It's all honor system.  There's no prize or punishment for this: it's just something we're doing for bragging rights and a sense of accomplishment.  If you feel like you have to lie about deaths, then you're only cheating yourself.

 

IM Blaster 1 has died once due to "Lost Connection to Mapserver" while in a mission, surrounded by enemies.  When I got back online, I was laying face down outside the mission door.  I asked @Chainz (Mirujai) if I had to delete and start over because of that.  He said no, that doesn't count because it was completely beyond my control. 

 

So technically, my character has died once.  I haven't mentioned it before because LCM deaths are allowed (and I presume not encouraged).  If I look at anything in game that reports defeats, it's going to show that death, even though it doesn't really count.

Yeah... mapserver errors, powercuts, floods, random acts of sasquatch... anything totally out of your control and not related to gameplay doesn't count.

Cold Iron Ninja hit level 18 in Neutropolis last night after finally finishing Imperial City's Responsibility and Crusader arcs on No XP, which took seemingly forever.

 

And level 18's Ice Patch came not a moment too soon, because I then had Neutropolis's "Battle at Junction 221" Crusader mission with waves of Loyalist clockwork, PPD, and T.E.S.T.  coming at me through the sewer.  Iced a doorway chokepoint and they didn't stand a chance.  The end of those waves came piled one on top of the other so it's a good thing they spent most of the time flopping around on the patch or stuck on the other side of the doorway.

 

Vanessa Devore was a bit a challenge in Mother Mayhem's arc since Assassinating her doesn't finish her off but just causes her to spawn decoys with herself, back to full health, hidden among them.  All orange bosses (though most one-hittable except for the real Devore)... they still hurt well enough when they landed hits.  Again, hiding behind a pillar to pull them together onto an Ice Patch helped immensely.  Still ate half my tray to stay out of the danger zone. 

 

I know I'm going to regret going defense instead of resistance at some point.  It's fabulous... once you're nearly level 50 and soft-capped with some resistance bonuses and Tough backing it up.  In the meantime it can be dodge, dodge, dodge, dodge, dodge.... dead if you run into someone that hits hard enough.

Blaster's Log, 2106.10 - levels 20-21

 

While I was still in Faultline, I paid a visit to Doc Delilah and ran missions for her.  Picture below, here we are bathing in the afterglow of defeating Captain Castillo.  After my play date with the good Doc, she introduced me to Agent G, who had me infiltrate Arachnos and the Sky Raiders as they battle for control of southern Faultline.  I earned Entrusted with the Secret for defeating Arbiter Sands, along the Aftershock badge for finishing all of the arcs in Faultline.  But I didn't quite make it to level 22: I still have about 2.5 bubbles to go.  It was a long night, so I'm going to bed.

Agent V Update - 6/10/21

 

After taking a break from playing yesterday, I logged in and began to buy some much needed IOs for V. I was able to get  both the Performance Shifter End Mod & the proc after some converter roulette. I was also able to get a few PVP IOs after buying a few of the Gladiator's Strike IOs and converting them. After selling a few IOs that I converted for extra cash, I resumed my missions by completing the last mission in the Tsoo Shenanigans story arc. I completed Graham Easton's arc and continued both the The Vahzilok Plague and The Mind of a King story arcs, which helped me level up to Level 20 and Field Operative.

 

After leveling up, I started on Doc Delilah's story arc as well as the first story arc of Mercedes Sheldon. After completing Doc Delilah's story arc, I continued with Agent G's arc. An hour or so later, I had completed Agent G's arc and destroyed the PsychoChronoMetron (with the help of Penelope Yin). I then continued Mercedes story arc and recovered the Dirge of Chaos from the Freakshow. I started The Magic Man story arc, as well as the Tsoo Coup. I ended the session at level 22 after starting up a couple of more missions.
