    Depends on if he will be slotting level 30 or 35 IOs. If it's 35s then he'll be running around with useless enhancements for a while.

    I'd just ask someone to power me through to 32 and bum some money for level 35 IOs.

    So. Common IOs (Invention: Damage, etc) are able to be memorized, if you make enough of them of various levels. When memorized, they require no recipe and the crafting cost is halved. I may have memorized all of them on my main. So if you just use the market to buy up the salvage then holler at me I can probably get you IOs on the cheap.

    But only if I love you. So Tube will have to pay full price.

    Don't do this.

    What shouldn't he do? Switch to IOs? Or use SOs again before switching? Cause you definitly wanna be switching to IOs in the 30s (and crafting what ones you can earlier doesn't hurt either).

    I still say that unless you're really worried about getting the maximum amount out of your build (of which I recognize some people are.) the only thing IO's have going for it is that you can buy em at 30, and forget about em until 40.
    Otherwise, I hate every single other part about switching to IO's and consider the process such a pain, that I would only recommend it if you have a character who's kind of squishy.

    The SOs seem to be doing quite a good job so far, and I'm looking forward to being a lot more effective at a higher level. The sidekick system seems a bit flawed in how it levels some characters because it doesn't seem to take in account enhancements for the level. I was missing 7 out of 10 attacks as a level 22 boosted to 50, and it seemed like doing pretty minimal damage as a SS/WP brute.

    SOs are useless if your level is four or more higher than the level of the SO. I think they are only 10% effective at three levels above their level. IOs never lose their effectiveness. You just need to be within three levels of its level in order to slot them. A level 35 IO will still give you the same benefits at 50 as they did at 35. An SO would stop working at 39.

    Up to level 7 with my Praetorian energy blaster, and I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of the game aside from the lingo (this IO/SO/DO discussion could be in an alien language and would read similarly to me).

    One question - where the hell do I go to sell these oodles of enhancements and inspirations that I won't use? At this point I'm not even really buying anything, but I hate just throwing away enhancements that I can't use or Inspirations that I don't use whenever I could apparently be selling them somewhere. Everyone I've tried to go to just gives me notes next to each of them "Can't sell here"

    There is a vendor Bot around the trainer where you start in Nova Praetoria. Around the pool of water.

    If you look on the minimap, there should be little circles with dollar signs in them.

    The ones that say "vendor" and not "merit vendor" will buy your unused enhancements and whatnot.

    Merit Vendor I went to and it has nothing selectable in there except a drop-down box for "All" which doesn't actually drop anything down yet.

    I'll check out a few more vendors tonight though - especially that bot near the trainer in Nova. Thanks for the help!

    Yeah, the merit vendor is for merit rewards. You just need a regular old vendor that buys and sells enhancements and inspirations.

    Selling your more powerful inspirations at the auction house is a good way to make a little cash early on.

    Yeah, it took crazy organization from like 50 different people, but at the same time there was absolutely nothing for level 50's to do at the time.

    Plus, it was back when you could still get full value from 6 slotting things, so suddenly having an attack that was a full 100% attack and 100% accuracy was crazy. Or the half attack half range where suddenly you could snipe something from across the map and it wouldn't register aggro.

    Man, I got a lot of memories from CoH.

    They do but more for the defense debuff exploit than any actual use. I use a few, they are pretty handy in pets. The Lich, in particular, really gets some mileage out of those acc/mez HOs. And acc/dams are a good way to round out a power.

    Don't even get me started on war wolves dude. People thought they had it all figured out with tauntbots and fire tanks.

    Nope.

    Rad defenders and perma-nemesis staff's. Going to lvl 50 in a day. My all rad defender/Controller group pretty much single handily got that temp power changed because of that.

    When the game was first released Super Speed had a massive accuracy debuff when it was turned on, but to compensate it also gave the user a massive +Def. Fire blaster's "Rain of Fire" was also an auto hit.

    The first lvl 50 was a fire/dev blaster with superspeed.

    When I came back in '06 I made a Fire/Dev to relive the glory days. I had no idea everything had been nerfed or fixed depending on how you look at it.

    I still got that fucker to 50. I nearly quit a bunch of times through the 30s though. Worst goddamn section of leveling then.

    My favorite was the combo of Burn and Provoke.

    Apparently the urge to not stand in the middle of a burning inferno and die is not as strong as the urge to attack someone who made fun of your mother.

    Made a new dude! Dominator, mind control primary, energy secondary. Think it looks pretty interesting. Crowd Control seems to have a more prominent role in this game and might be a lot of fun. I actually made some effort to craft a story for him too. I don't RP, but it's still sort of fun to do so. Gives the dude you're playing a little more flavor.

    If I were to make a Dom this very second it would probably have fire as the secondary. Get fire mastery for Fireball.

    Dunno what I would pick as a primary, though.
