    Acrobatics gives mag 2 hold protection and 48% hold resistance. If in doubt, load up Mids and examine the status window.

    That said, I'm not sure mag 2 hold protection is worth squat by itself. And PCs do not have inherent mag protection outside of AT inherent abilities like Domination or powers like Integration.

    Most holds you see in PvE are mag 2, so it'll give you a free one. I liked it before, but now that you can slot KB protection a mag 2 toggle for holds just isn't worth it.

    It is arguably worth it for a blaster, but on the other hand, blasters can also fire three or four powers off while mezzed anyways.

    There isn't much else I want to take, honestly, so I'll probably give it a shot. The alternative is probably just to take grant invisibility to get up to five lotgs.

    man, i19 sounds awesome.

    I wonder what the alternate animations for sonic blast are going to be.

    I think the alternate animations for the blasts are just going to be sending them from different poses, not actual different blast effects.

    pretty sure the alternate blast animations are going to be the same for all the blast sets

    it's just going to be different emanation points

    head, hands, eyes, etc.

    still, it'll add a huge amount of creativity options. for example, i'm actually interested in making a sonic dude now that i have options other than being a banshee rip-off

    You could be wearing special power gauntlets that create soundwaves. Or you have mouths on the palms of your hands because of some magical ritual. Or your eyes are capable of unleashing shockwaves similar to sonic blasts. Or you're not really firing soundwaves but using it as a wind-esque blast set.

    NUCLEAR BLASTS FROM HIS EYES.

    Irradiate has the coolest animation, though. I'll keep Irradiate.

    basically the new power animations for the blast sets will lend a lot of creativity to re-interpretations of those powers, and that's pretty cool

    if they have a "mouth" animation point (which I'm assuming they do, since they can just rejig all of Sonic's animations) then you could do a fire-breathing character who shoots all of his fire from his mouth

    that sort of thing

    So I am a bit confused on how to make my level 50 Blaster a villain or rogue:
    do I continue to do Tip missions?
    I take that at some point I will be given a choice?
    What actually happens?

    Spoiler if necessary.

    Also, can I take my level 50 controller and get her access to red side epic power sets?
    If so, how?

    It's a new thread the op is right above you it is all in there I typed so damn much goddamn people.

    And I appreciate it.

    My apologies...I have no excuse.

    Is flight faster than it was when CoH launched?

    I remember even with all the slots filled with speed increasing upgrades it was never very fast.

    Yes, it has had I believe two speed boosts since then.

    Yeah, it was just boosted again in I18. It is pretty awesome now. Also, Swift boosts flight speed I think, which it didn't at launch.

    The GvE Jump Jet also is good for a boost and usually is all you need to speed up your flight between missions. I would not put any slots in flight now, I think it is fine with the base.

    Didn't Narbus say one IO in flight and one in swift caps it anyway?

    Oh god does anyone else remember launch when pre-stamina fly would drain end faster than you could recover it? So if you flew too long you would run out entirely and have to hover there for like 5 minutes just waitin' for that blue bar to reload? I actually kept blues in my tray for when I had to travel!

    AND FLY WAS SLOWER THEN!

    I hated Independence Port SO FUCKING MUCH. You have no idea! I just remembered this shit!

    My favorite thing about debt nowadays is when I'm on a team where I'm literally out of debt before I hit the ground. I always laugh when that happens.

    Granted, this may be because I don't think I've been on a team that wasn't all about crazy expees, but I can't remember a recent time where I ever had the debt in the first place.
    Even from dying all the time in Fiaryn's crazy attempts at Survive, One defeat makes it disappear.
    Contrast this with having to put a toon on semi-permanent hiatus for over a year+ because he had managed to reach the debt cap a few years ago and I'm shocked as to how much this game element has just become irrelevant.

    Now if we could only do this for Endurance...

    inherent stamina doesn't make endurance irrelevant?

    It makes the early levels not suck ass, but it won't make endurance irrelevant. I've got plenty of characters with Stamina, lots of end reduction slotted, etc, who still need to manage endurance usage.

    You will die and then you will log.

    Actually, don't play your pimped out ill/rad (who is +2/x8) and THEN go to a field analyst, with your blaster, and set it to -1/x3....
