No idea.

In other news, getting "Army of Me" on a Thug/Dark MM? When 4 of the clones use "Gang War" upon spawning? That was "interesting" to say the least.

Which weapons? Pretty sure the powerset options with weapons like Katana are available to you.


I was hoping for Scythes. My intent back in 05 was to put Harvestman in there and I have to say it sounds like a good idea now.

Yeah only thing was that *I* was the one being dog-piled on. "Army of Me" is when you take on 8 of your clones all at once in Leonard's story arc, redside. So if you're a Thug MM with all 6 pets and Gang War, then you're facing 8 Thug MMs. With all of their 6 pets. All capable of calling a gang war on you. So that's 8 NPCs, 48 pets with the possibility of a buttload of pets all attacking you.

Oh, that mission. Honestly, I had enough trouble taking out three Dual Blade/Willpower Brutes. Let alone eight of them.

I tend to go for that badge whenever I run the mission. Was.... INTERESTING when I took Caligno Nova, my redside Peacebringer, on that mission. Manage to kill one clone, then turn to focus on a second BUT the clone you took triggers the Peacebringer Self-Rez... Hey! Back to square one! icon-wildride.gif

Thus far I've only done it with Grinmace. Now when I get Professor of Panic (My Illusion/Time Controller) up that high....that one will be interesting.

I plan on bringing nothing but Break Frees.

I am kind of amused by the idea that a city is attacked by so many monsters that there's an alert system for supernatural activity.

That was a "Quality Of Life" feature added a few years ago. People would literally camp at the three locations for the Paladin in Kings Row for hours awaiting its appearance. Or, you would never notice the Ghost Ship gliding along in Independence Port because the zone is so huge.

I think it works, though. As a hero, you'd be tuned into such things. Think of it as you just happen across it while listening to your scanner.

And, if you don't like it, you can suppress those messages. It is part of the options you can set to not see them.

Of course, now I'm thinking of the days when you could "train" the Ghost Ship and have it follow you around the zone like a pet. You could have it follow you up to the hill in Talos and it would just sit there. Ahh, the days when there were so many "features" in CoH. icon-hotrod.gif

I would go onto the City of Heroes website and download the Freedom Client directly from them, because my guess is Freedom has totally changed the pathways of the old game. You can likely still use your CoV Serial Number to get a free month of VIP, though.

You should see Power Paladin's inverted version.

All it does is swap the colors for each item. So, if your "helmet detail 1" has Yellow/Black, your inverted version's helmet detail 1 becomes Black/Yellow.

Definitely visit www.plaync.com and find your way to the game client, then download from there. It completely changed a few months ago. Much to my annoyance. I used to be able to just click an icon and start CoH without all the nagging "Accept" and such. They got wise and force you to use their "console" to launch the game, now. (And moved the agreement to be after you log in).

After 460+ Hours of play time...I finally have a Level 50. Night Raider just clicked the magic number. As for how/when it happened?



How about getting the "Master of Olympus" badge? Yeah, I'd say that was a good feeling.


It feels good to finally have a character at the cap. For one thing, it means I can really indulge my altaholism without worry. Though I probably should work on getting a Red to 50 too.

FINALLY got everything DLed.... and now I have a charrecter up. Chose Shade as my first. Took me about 2 hours to get her built (forgot the capes cost extra)... and then turns out Shade is taken.... so I gave her the name 'Moritori'.

And I managed to get up to level 5 before board maintenance, doing nothing but beating up devil-worshiping hoods.

So yeah, if you se a chick in all-black with maroon beltstraps and spikes... that's me.

How do I save pics of your peeps anyways?

Hit "Print Screen" in game and then locate your NCSoft Folder, the COH folder, and then under "Screenshots".

I remember when Raptor Scribe hit 50. It was literally as we took down the Olympian Guard in the last part of the Maria Jenkins storyarc.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

By the way, there's a little magnifying glass next to the name box during creation. You can use that to check if a name is taken before you finish everything else.

On a silly note, my new favorite mission is when the magical sentient television has you destroy a charity's books and blame it on violent video games.
