Hey, just started getting salvage for the first time.... where and how do I unload all this crap?


The Auction House (Black Market Red side, Wol-somethingorother-worth Trading Center Blue).


So here's some shots of the fellas I've been running with lately (Anybody's guess how long this batch of Alts will last):

There's Thoughtforce of course, but beyond him:

First up, there's my Praetorian Demon Digger:



And his Primal "Counterpart", Liche:


(I didn't do a good job in these photos showing off the fact Liche also has a skull buried in its chest just like Demon Digger).

My new Mister Atrocity (In no way associated with Praetoria or Mister Astonishing):


And finally, I brought my Robo/Traps MM Broadband over from Pinnacle to Virtue, and in the process had to rename him. So I completely overhauled him and he's now State Machine:

His bots are named Red, White, Blue, Liberty, Justice, and Freedom

I'm thankful my wife introduced me to that show. It's a hoot.

Well, just got to actually use some of that salvage. Darque's Darkness snipe just got accuracy and damage boosts that should keep me good until lvl 20.

Now I just need to find something that should give some good affordable side-weapons to the other guys. The mech-wing costume part sounds good for O, and thoes poison daggers are right up Mournings alley.
Its not broken.... its ADVANCED!

keep in mind: if you stop being a VIP you'll lose access to your inventions. Inventions slotted in powers will stop working and you won't have any effect from them. Re-upping reactivates them, but if you intend only to stay VIP for a month you might want to think twice before making too many of those.

If you got enough leftover points, you can get an invention license when you go back to free, those allow you to craft/use inventions just as if you were VIP but only for 30 days.

Typical.... this would extend over to costume parts too I assume. Well, at this rate he should be lvl 20 by then.

Ehh, I'll probly have to go and sell most of that salvage crap before time runs out.

No, if you craft a costume part, you keep it on that toon even if you lose IO access. You just can't make more. I looked into that on Scav's behalf last week.

Man I hate Nemesis's clanks. Trying to hunt-down Clockworks in Steel Canyon... and naturally there where no baddies to be seen. Just stand still long enough and guess what starts swarming me? UGH!

Ranting aside.... Mourning just leveled up, and I chose 'shadow maul' as his new power... And naturally once I get to test it, it shares a striking resemblence to the Sands of Mu. So now, the question is... do I really want to have two of the same flurry power, even if it is this awesome, in favor of fire or Grenade arrows?

Speaking as a former Dark Melee Scrapper: Yes. Yes you do.

Shadow Maul (Which as you noticed, is exactly like Sands of Mu) can be enhanced - unlike Sands of Mu.

This is true.... Plus, you can repeatedly pummel everybody in your path... like I did with that army of clockworks I passed on my way back to the mission.

Bingo. Shadow Maul is just a great move in general - Cone Damage plus -Accuracy to anyone it hits. Would wouldn't want two of it?

Generally, when a zone event triggers (be it Nemesis, Zombies, Banners or Rikti), the normal wandering mobs run for cover. Does make hunt missions annoying, yeah.

This week they'll be testing out "Freebie Fridays," anyone who logs in on Friday (GMT, so starting Thursday night in America) gets a free thing (one per account, so it'll probably show up in Account Items). They're not saying what the free thing is, but unless part of the testing is 'see if we can avoid giving people stuff they aleady bought,' I'd guess it'll be a consumable (team inspiration, deslotter, etc) rather than a durable item like a costume piece.

Explosive arrow is fun, but if you're still exclusively soloing you're probably better off focusing on single target and cone most of the time, so take flaming arrow.

Agreed. And if you have Trick Arrow, the flame arrow can ignite your own oil slicks whereas the Explosive Arrow doesn't.

Freebie Friday test should be live now. Go to the store, there will be an item there listed for 0 PP. Free and Premium players can get it too.
