Alright I'm in the game, WTF is up with the UI/Chat system?

Yeah we wont deny, it sucks big time and hopefully SOE gets around to fixing some things. But here's some information to help you figure it out.

Help! NPCs and Villains alike are kicking my ass in melee!
The game is about as like an old school fighting game as you can get with an MMO of this caliber, here's some info on the various things that defend against attacks, and the counters to those defenses.

I HAVE A FEVER AND THE ONLY PRESCRIPTION IS MORE GLOWY
I see you've come to be addicted to finding all those shiny looking blue and green (!) and the occasional collection (?). Well have no fear, we're here to help.

    Good OP, need those maps.

    I'm leaving work early for the weekend, going to see if getting on game earlier in the day lessens the PvP gankings or enhances them (I've always wondered this for weekday traffic).

    Speaking of Ambush Bug, my girlfriend was playing through the tutorial with a new alt yesterday, and in the section with the explosive barrels and trash, ambush bug was walking around o.O She was able to talk to him, and he said something about the vault but Calculator's automatic speech interrupted him so we never heard all of what we had to say.

    Anybody else experience this? Was it a glitch or does he have some random chance to appear?

    Grey Knight was just invited to the Hero league last night, so no need to keep me in the "not in" list...

    Also, I can use the steam group chat in-game if I use the "Add a Non-steam game..." and add this to my library, right? Because I got a boxed version of the game, and therefore do not have it on Steam.

    He randomly appears. I've had it happen a few times. He says something amusing along the lines of "Oh hey, a new player, my favorite kind of person"

    In reference to Ambush Bug in the title, I hope they add more vaults and more vault-like activities. Its a nice break from the routine of "kill X enemies and receive Y loot." Instead its just "here's free presents for you to open and they might have cool costume pieces for you."

    I think the tie-in comic handles this as well as the war before the opening movie.

    Having the hardest time finding Clayface, he's the one wanted I haven't done yet; in the orange box he's supposed to be in, I'm looking for someone named "odd Joker henchman" or whatnot, but can't find him even after a fair amount of respawn time just in case someone else got him.

    he's just outside the box, next to a "Pub" building. he walks 2 sides of that building, then resets.

    So I was making a spreadsheet of all the level 30 Controller armor sets to see the stat distribution (To help me figure out how I should be gearing myself). I bought three of the Controller Tier 1 PvP Gear and then I realized something and am super pissed.

    PvP Controller gear has Dominance. DOMINANCE DOESN'T DO ANYTHING IN PVP. NOTHING AT ALL. AT ALL! In PvE it increases the duration of holds and stuns and crap but it doesn't effect PLAYERS at all. The stat is useless and is sucking up the item budget from Might and Power.

    Ugh. How does this happen? Really wish I could get me ~500+ Influence back and purchase the DPS PvP gear. Between this + the Controller Aggro bug in Alerts + all in-game sound cutting out 75% of the time I think I'm going to take a week or two break from the game and hope that in that time they post a roadmap for updates or a preview of a big future patch outlining all the bugs that will be fixed soon.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that using Stuns and Holds as a Controller in PvP is useless anyways since so many people have passive abilities that give them Power regen when they use Break-out, so you're just juicing up your enemies if you hold them.

    Dominance does NOT increase CC duration, it increases the amount of damage the CC'd target can take before it breaks because of damage. Also, get it high enough, and you can CC things that normally cannot be CCed (which, by my understanding, includes "Controllers and Healers who just popped thier PvP breakout trinket").

    As for power regen from breakout, unless SoE screwed up somewhere, I very, very much doubt that the power regen passives your movement mode can give you from breakouts equals how much you spent in the first place (unless a breakout costs only 150 power at every level.) Even if it did, it takes 10 seconds to get all that power; the CC immunity you get from using regular tap-block breakout lasts 2, at most.

    ...Then there is the fact that the stuns and knockdown from a successful Interrupt/Block Breaker/Block in PvP ignore CC immunity in the first place, and 99% of people still use breakout on them, even though they last only a couple of seconds...

    ...So unless he has a controller of his own pumping him full of power, he will eventually run out of power and won't be able to use breakout, at which point that Dominance stat comes into play, because you can wail on him now without having to worry if the damage you are doing is going to break him out of whatever CC effect you have on him.

    Me and my brother are looking into getting this early next month. I was in beta and at that point at least low levels seemed pretty fun. So, a few questions. How long does it take to go from 1-30? What is there to do at 30 at this point? How big of a difference is there between solo and a 2 person party, does it open up much of anything or just make what you could do solo a bit easier?

    I got to 30 in about 4 days (so maybe 16 hours total) of zero grinding and just doing soloable quests. I'd imagine grouping up with someone wouldn't do much other than make it a bit easier and safer (if you plan on playing on a pvp server)

    Dominance allowing you to hit a held enemy more times before the hold breaks effectively means the CC can last longer the more dominance you have. I knew this, it's what I meant, but I wasn't as clear as I should have been, so thanks for pointing that out.

    HOWEVER. Dominance still does NOTHING in PvP, which is the crux of my anger since I just spent all my influence on Controller PvP Gear. It does not increase the amount of damage a held player can take before the hold breaks. It doesn't. At all. It does nothing. The stat is nothing but a useless waste of the item budget on Controller PvP Gear. I am basing this claim on my own experience + tons and tons of posts on the official forums. Apparently in Beta dominance used to work against other players but it was changed at some point to not effect players, but the gear was never adjusted accordingly.

    I actually just double-checked one of the forum threads about this and it is being looked into by the developers.

    What is considered the best armor once you get to level 30? The same with Weapons vendors, is it Hawkman?

    I Reached 30 yesterday and still have a few missions to finish up before getting into the PVP endgame stuff. And Good Lord do the villains swarm little bohemia in the evening. One cool thing that happened with the Ring War was that a group of 6 villains were camping the area until about 20 heroes showed up and made them be on the receiving end of ganks for a bit, even taking the fight to their respawn bubble just to teach them a lesson. It made me happy.

    I've never actually played the game but I just read this and it's saying that you can't see people from your league online unless they're your friends. I'm guessing that means you can only see when your friends are online.

    Me and my brother are looking into getting this early next month. I was in beta and at that point at least low levels seemed pretty fun. So, a few questions. How long does it take to go from 1-30? What is there to do at 30 at this point? How big of a difference is there between solo and a 2 person party, does it open up much of anything or just make what you could do solo a bit easier?

    It makes what you could solo a lot easier. The respawns in public areas are fast enough that you'll be really grateful for someone covering your back.

    Yeah, I usually duo with my girlfriend in MMOs, and I tried leveling a few characters solo in DCUo. Maybe it was just that I chose controller, but I found myself dying left and right. The ability to heal/tank or just someone to watch your back really makes life easier.


    Also, I'd just like to destroy all the controllers out there in Alerts who stay in DPS mode. Love, your hyperventilating out of power healer.

    This. Really wish I had a duo buddy while leveling to 30. Half the time it was ok, but the other half of the time the INSANE respawn rates for enemies in certain areas was a huge pain in the ass. (I'm looking at you, Venom addicts near the Cape Carmine Lighthouse and you, Yellow Lanterns near Metropolis Town Hall).

    I agree with my wife. The "Smashy - Smashy" is one of the best parts of instance runs.

    I think I am done with this game for now. I may come back when the level 30s have more to do than bottom feed.

    Some days I just want to smack people with a rolled up newspaper. Or a phone book.
    A folding chair is looking like an attractive option right now too...
