Well, devs, my favorite TF is no longer fun to solo.

I think it is the shouting that makes them more resistant to KB effects. My Ice Patch sometimes works and sometimes not. Most often not. I suppose yelling does make the ground less slippery or something.

 

Yeah, I forgot about that one.  Shout Of Command; Lts and Bosses have it.  Giving them the floor from PF to stack that seems to have had an affect.

 

Good stuff. I like it.

Clearly the solution is to add more knockback to your powers to disrupt their formation.

In all seriousness, I do remember playing with no KB->KD in Shockwave for many a cycle... it's so much better with the proc.

Be the game you want to play.

The text descriptions of Shout of Command don't list KB protection but City of Data has it as +Mez protection (All) whatever that means.  I've also noticed them stop falling down on Ice Patch so it's gotta be this power.   It's a huge 30ft radius so it's hitting pretty much every Cim in the room with -10 protection for 15 seconds and it comes from any of the boss or lieutenant types, I think, once they are damaged enough.

Grabbed some Amps for my shield/em tank and went back in. It was a touch better on the whiff-fest front but I felt so dirty for having amps on a 50.

 

Earth Mastery has three AoEs (Salt Crystals, Quicksand and Stalagmites), all of which have -Def.

 

But it is Earth Mastery, so you'll still feel dirty.  😁

Belief in oneself is contagious.  We give each other permission to be superheroes.  We will never awaken, otherwise.

Hey wait, Actionette (Rad/Atomic) is a rolling -def machine.  I'm not transferring her to Excel, though, don't want to risk someone ninja-ing her name.

Quicksand is really nice for this sort of thing because it auto-hits.

Defender Smash!

Paralytic interface incarnate has -defense.  Not sure it it's worth much, but neither are the other interface procs... might be worth a try.

Do yo out think the Nerve Alpha Incarnate series might help with this?

 

It sys its +account, but to hit would make more sense as it applies to all attacks.

     No it's Accuracy.  The Alpha abilities act as global enhancements.  So Nerve would act as an Accuracy enhancement in all your powers that accept Accuracy enhancements.

     And in all likelihood you'll benefit most from To Hit buffs and least from Accuracy.  Accuracy is a multiplier and multiplying a small number doesn't help as much as making that number not as small.

It wouldn't surprise me if some devs were watching the replies to this change intently.

 

I think it's genius, really.  A small but powerful change that turns the AoE spam on it's head.

Oh? You like City of Heroes?

Name every player character.

I'll be waiting in my PMs.

It doesn't. I've done ITFs in full teams since and everything melts the same.
