    I'm still getting used to the game... what is police band/newspaper missions? Where do you get them? I'm in Atlus City... Is it somewhere else?

    I went into City Hall and did all the quests my Contact gave me.

    Go to Kings Row. You should have a new contact in your list from the PPD. Go and talk to them and you will then have a police radio with which to do police band missions.

    Aha, thank you so much sir. :)

    Note of my noobness:

    I got the mission to go to Kings Row, and didn't realize a train would take me right there. So I decided the best route was to go through the sewers.

    Oh God I was wrong. I died when monsters LOOKED at me.

    You bastards better get Sonna to 45 as well.

    We got her some XPEES yesterday but due to her being 1/4 awake (according to accualt) we had to cut it short.

    I wouldn't count on her making it to 45 by Friday night. I mean, that would be awesome, but somehow I doubt she will actually play hardcore enough the next two days. Maybe if the combination of Harlon and Ghost's sparkling personalities could keep her online long enough.
    She's really in the mood to do a TF for some reason and was slightly saddend to hear the new one was 45+.

    Any other TFs she wants to do? I mean I'm up for synapse, manticore, and a few trials for my blaster.

    My wife once while exploring followed the roads and ended up in Steel Canyon at level 3. That was her 2nd night playing.

    She is probably up for anything, doubly so if it earns her the EXPs. That would mean...
    Explorers and Exploiters - Dr. Quarterfield (Level 40 to 44)
    The Legend of Ruladak - Sara Moore (Level 40 to 50)

    or maybe

    Eden Trial - (Level 39 to 41)
    They should really expand the level range on that one.

    I can talk to her about doing a TF that doesn't include EXPs when I get home and see what she says.

    Quarterfield, I doubt she could stay up for that one, extremely long with all those hunts and what not. Never done Moore on goggles, Eden Trial is fun though.

    If we want to improve Allegory's defenses, we need 5 people to kill Lanaru in SG mode. It is a 44+ TF, so she'd have to level a bit still, but if people are up for actually doing a Shard TF, that'd be the most beneficial.

    She was only dog tired that night because she had been paged to go remove some body parts at 3 in the morning the night before and hadn't been back to bed yet.

    If you are still around 5 later tonight, I'd be happy to run some missions with you... I just started a new character and he kind of sucks solo.

    Just finished the Lady Grey Task Force with a group puggers. Bitstream was in on it, but he either lost his connection or gave up after he crashed for the third time. Anyway, good stuff.

    It's only five missions long, but the maps are larger than normal and each mission usually has more than one task you need to complete. Considering a PUG did extremely well, I would rate the difficulty as being easy, but we had the difficulty set to Heroic for four out of five missions. Knowing the people in PA, I don't think you guys should have any trouble running the missions.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, the task force seemed to last around three hours, give or take.

    Awesome moment spoiler (No major story points, but sort of a mission spoiler)

    Man, I'd love to finish up all the Shard TFs I haven't done. Doesn't look feasible till next week for me, though.

    Nothing.

    /sarcasm

    Defiance boosts the damage you do as you lose health. So if you're at a pixel's worth of health you'll be putting down reds without a problem. It's not really seen as a great inherent power since blasters don't really want to be near death anyway.

    Right now? You can get a chuckle watching your Defiance bar finally fill up moments before you die.

    In the near future, it might actually be useful; they're seriously talking about changing it. Until then, just pretend it doesn't exist. You are far better off popping a Respite instead of trying to take advantage of Defiance's damage bonus.

    Blargh. Yeah, I dropped out of the LGTF earlier after multiple crashes and a network failure. I figured it just wasn't in the cards at that point. I guess I'm still in for tomorrow night; if the one mission I made it through was any indication, the TF should be fantastic.

    Has anyone else had problems with sound-loop crashes since I10 hit? I seem to get one every ten minutes or so on a big team now, and I haven't had that type of crash happen for ages.

    Ahh... I forgot about the powers page. I was right clicking my health bar, and wouldn't let me go to info on it.

    Thanks for the info :)

    So yeah, I'll pretend like it doesn't exist. For now. :)

    I have never had a sound loop crash. Perhaps because my Soundcard is older than fossilized dirt, or because I always have CoH's sound off.

    ...why didn't I think of that?

    Hooray for logic! Hopefully I'll be crashing a bit less if I can ever get on the damn server. Why oh why must Virtue drop just when I want to play?

    So as should have been no surprise to me, my worst fear was confirmed today when logging into Talos, only to find that an invasion was scheduled to start any second. I didn't even make it away from the Train Station before the game slowed to a crawl. and when I say "crawl" I am not talking metaphorically or exaggerating. It took me 20 minutes to make it 100 feet away from the train station. Also somewhere in that 20 minutes, I tried to type something (possibly "ARGGGGGH!") only to find 5 minutes later that I hadn't hit Enter beforehand, and proceeded to dump 20 or so "Over Here" and "Looking For Team" messages in the Chat Window, so sorry about that one.
    On the positive side, I had Rikti as my enemy type in some random mission I had, and the upgrades are amazing. That new double-bladed sword they're giving out actually caused me some worry. Granted I punched him into a stalactite 5 seconds later, but the point stands.
