Hey, have you read this and This guide yet?

Because you should.

How to Play With Penny Arcadians
Spoiler:


This shit be free, yo. Play it.

FREE you say?

Champions Online is now free, using a two-tier account classification system. Silver Accounts are completely free but lack certain functionality (must play specific archetypes, must pay for costume unlocks, and others) while Gold accounts receive a monthly stipend of AtariFunbux as well as the ability to create fully customizable characters. If you're a paid subscriber or a lifer, you already have a gold account.

Converting Characters from Silver to Gold and Gold to Silver

Characters can be converted from one to the other but only once. Think long and hard if you want to switch one (because if you say, convert a Silver character to a Gold, you won't be able to play that character if your account drops from Gold to Silver)

    I tend to play it for a week every 3 months or so. It's one game I really hope improves with age, or at least untill DC online comes around.

    They are considered low priority. And with good reason. Bases in CoH were only used for the teleport pads, and with a large supergroup it allowed a single player to build a dollhouse.

    Woooooo.



    No, fuck that shit. Uber super low priority compared to the actual gameplay elements that still need work.

    After Much Consideration I have created Master Inglorus.

    Some kind of eldrich abomination that fires energy bolts and has some kind of energy morning star on a chain attack and flies around on a chunk of concrete bristling with rebar

    I can't say I'm in love with the controls, and I've tried all the control schemes. MMO feels easiest for me.

    Its the only game that makes my card get so hot that it trips its overheat protection and shuts off.

    Tried it again on lower settings, still overheated my card and shut it off.

    should check Pony's build guide posted in the last thread.

    Muni is pretty much a framework with several "paths" in it. There's the explosives-heavy path, the lots of damage ticks path, and the dual pistols semi-melee one. All of which can be really damn viable.

    Its just the play style is all, rocking dual blades I can stand in there and lay waste a lot easier then I could as munitions. Lot more options and I like the anims more.

    It even says in the in game description of Munitions that it sacrifices versatility for firepower.

    Pretty much you don't go straight Munitions. My Munitions character leans heavily on Gadgetry, as well as taking the block from Power Armor and a passive and active defense from Infernal.

    I hope you at least glanced at Aura of Radiant Protection, Shadow Form, Seraphim, and Regeneration before going outside your framework for Defiance.

    Because without Con as a SS Defiance is going to be lackluster, whereas Regen works pretty damn well without Recovery superstatted.

    Aura of Radiant Protection is a pretty decent defense in Sentinel with Presence SS.
    Shadow Form buffs all paranormal damage (but has Endurance as the main scaling stat)
    Seraphim buffs all paranormal damage and healing (damage scales of Presence, healing scales off Con) and is excellent in Sentinel.

    Just some suggestions.

    Imperator is Con/Int. I've tried all those on other guys. The only non-defensive passive I've run and liked was Shadow Form. The other two you listed would be cool if teaming was a bigger part of the game. Someday when that happens I'll probably make a Aura character as the visuals of Radiant Protection are hella cool.

    i did a pretty rad quest chain today

    level 18, got it from Michael Scott Beck in Millennium City

    it's called PSI-lent but Deadly (yeah, real mature, game)

    it was actually pretty fun and a nice little deviation from the standard "go here and defeat 20 purple gang" type bullshit i've been doing for a while

    This is what creating chat tabs is for. I have a Penny Arcade tab that's just for Penny Arcade. I have a Team tab that's just for Team. That way I don't have to chase shit around. The only thing that I have on every tab is the /tells. I left the zone tab just in case I want to cut myself.
