    the clockwork stuff is free if you bought going rogue 8-)

    but I didn't, geebs!

    I DIDN'T

    BUT IT USED TO BE FREE

    wonder what happens if I unlock a character with those pieces already on

    can someone catch me up on how the archetypes are now

    like, last time I played, masterminds were mediocre and stalkers were shit after they blew their Hide

    how are all the guys

    particularly, how are Masterminds in general,
    how do Stalkers, Brutes and Scrappers stack up against each other
    and how do Corruptors and Blasters compare

    I don't mean "well one has higher damage primaries," I mean how are they in terms of balance

    I think stalkers are still pretty weak, but I'm pretty sure they fixed the issues with masterminds. Most classes outside of like, defenders and the squids are pretty viable.

    masterminds have gotten some quality of life upgrades; your pet buffs are now aoe abilities, and some of the powers in the secondaries were buffed to make them easier to use (ex: mastermind twilight grasp got a bigger aoe.) Your pets cross loading screens with you now, I think. On the other hand most of the structural disadvantages still exist; pet AI is still dumb and relying on pets still leaves you a lot less mobile than the other ATs.

    I hardly ever see stalkers anymore, and when I do they're always weird concept builds. They did get buffed at some point so they're more useful now than they were, but still outclassed by scrappers and brutes. I think scrappers in general are considered superior to brutes, but it's mostly a question of what sets you want to use, how you want to build the guy, and whether you like fury or not.

    Blasters are slowly going the way of the dinosaur. Corruptors, dominators and even defenders are a lot more useful in higher end content, and the way the game is now pretty much any AT can pump out lots of damage if you want it to.

    it was the smallest on the list but
    Pluto was a planet and I'll never forget

    I think I found what I want to play. Gravity/Sonic controller. The sonic powerset is fun. It makes a very satisfying noise. That's really my criteria. The ice sound effects are so ooooooold.

    Same reason I don't like the mace powerset.

    I have a warhammer and it sounds like I am striking with a steak knife.

    hmm

    is dual blade any good? I think I've tried most or all of the other scrapper/brute primaries

    my understanding is that anything that deals lethal damage gets worse as you go because later enemies all have resistance to it

    I think I saw a screenshot of that character in the CoX thread over in the MMO forum.

    Actually I think most of the character screens I've seen in that thread are from you, Shoe.

    Well you took Green already, but I can be Blue Rocket.

    I'm pretty pumped. Playing CoH with GnT people back in the day got me to actually start posting on the forums.

    a huge problem with this is that it's getting way hard to think up good names, as they generally don't delete inactive characters

    I am going to get this. I am going to make a dozen dudes and probably never play with them at all.

    I hate MMOs.

    I just made a costume that I am extremely satisfied with.

    A tribute to the second character I ever made which was viciously deleted by a family member years ago.

    I think I'll be going with that.

    just a head's up, the writing and mission design in the newer content is like a billion times better than the old stuff

    also regarding sets

    fire is awesome, especially if you can get fiery aura

    because burn is like my favorite power in the whole fuckin' game

    I've made a couple new characters after unlocking one of my 50's. Still kinda miffed that my IO's don't work anymore, but it is what it is.

    I made a sexy ass demon brute chick with Super Strength and Fire because I am a creepy nerd. I'll probably play some more when I ain't Battlefielding. I need to buy those witch costume pieces.

    DCUO will be free to play soon, too.
