OH MY DAYS HELLO AND THANK YOU


Recommended Posts

Welcome Home.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

And just as a little bit of principle information, the five Shards:

 Torchbearer was the first Shard up to the public for the Homecoming Servers.  It has a moderate population.
 Excelsior is the most populated Shard.
 Indomitable is the officially unofficial PvP Shard, but that doesn't change any of the gameplay.  It just means more players interested PvP tend to call that Shard home.
 Everlasting is the officially unofficial Roleplay Shard, and boasts the largest ratio of Villains-to-Heroes.  Roleplayers are evil, apparently (and I'm saying that as an avid roleplayer!).
 and Reunion is the European Shard.  All other Shards are based out of Montreal, while Reunion is based out of Germany (based on the last update I received on this, I might be wrong if the physical locations have changed).

 

See you in the City!

Welcome Home!   A lot has changed but a LOT is exactly the same.  They just slapped some chrome on the old girl and turbocharged it.  A few new parts here and there

Welcome home, WhiteGuardian!

 

  • Just so you know, the vet rewards you used to have can be recovered from the P2W vendor near the Atlas statute in Atlas Park.
  • If you get all of the explore badges in Atlas Park (or any zone really) it unlocks a long range teleporter and a special macro that will let you use all of your teleports (base porter, mission porter, etc.)
  • Base items no longer cost prestige. So feel free to make your own SG and then build yourself a base with all of the things.
  • Travel powers are now accessible at level 4, and there are new power pools.
  • Typing /ah into chat will allow you to access the player market anywhere except in missions or bases.
  • There's a Looking for Group channel that you should use if you want to quickly find a team.
  • There's a Help channel in game if you have questions.

 

I think I covered pretty much everything. Feel free to ask more questions though.

Being constantly offended doesn't mean you're right, it just means you're too narcissistic to tolerate opinions different than your own.

PF (Flyer?  couldn't resist) is right.  Take the time to sort through the P2W vendors listings and consider taking anything that isn't nailed down by influence.  There's a lot of free stuff there that can help.  Note that the P2W vendor can increase your speed of advancement but at the cost of earning INF (currency).  As this is your first time in Homecoming, I'd not recommend the full double XP boost, as you'll need INF for some of your enhancements.

 

Note that vendors no longer sell training enhancements.  One starts with Dual Origin (DO) enhancements now, and Single Origin (SO) enhancements begin much much earlier than they used to, so be sure to scroll down to find them in the vendor lists.  Also, you'll now find a big, shiny "UPGRADE" button on your manage enhancements page.  If you have the influence, you can instantly buy an upgrade to all slotted enhancements.

Have you decided on a Main?

Welcome Back!

On a related note. This is one of the things about Homecoming that bothers me.

 

There are so many people out there who love City of Heroes and would love to play again, but who do not know that these servers even exist. I wish that I could figure out a way to get the word out to all of the former CoH players. Not to benefit me, or Homecoming, but so they will at least have the choice to play CoH again.

Why did I read that in Lo Wang's voice?     Also, welcome back, don't be afraid to start crying once you load into Atlas Park for the first time.  I think it's required for all us old-schoolers...or was that just me?

It didn't hit me until the first time I returned to Scrapyard's Grave in Potter's Field. That was where I was standing when shutdown hit. I wrote an article for it for the old forum newspaper. That's where the heart of home is for me.
