    So after 30-40 minutes of people randomly deciding that they were gonna come on the Sara Moore TF we finally ended up with two teams and 13 people total. One team lead by Morgy which we call Team Failatlife started before us by a fair bit and finished after us by two missions. The other lead by me which we will call Team Awesomesauce finished the TF in 3 hours..here is their story.

    The Tale of Team Awesomesauce

    So basically the entire TF prior to Ruladak sucks and it's just 14 missions that are hunts or kill alls of various enemy groups such as Nemesis, Rularuu, and CoT so we will just skip to the last mission.

    Team Awesomesauce spots Ruladak from afar in the heavy fog(the whole mission is filled with fog and you can't see shit). Sk summons a shivan right in my view forcing me to move up..what a nice guy.

    The battle begins..(bonus phantom ass)
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-50-24.jpg

    It is fierce..
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-50-30.jpg

    Lime Tank delivers a mighty blow..(Ghost is somewhere off in the distance there killing Rularuu)
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-50-36.jpg

    The brave fight on despite being impaled..
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-50-38.jpg

    Ruladak is defeated..he implodes..
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-52-12.jpg
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-52-13.jpg
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-52-14.jpg

    Team Awesomesauce gathers outside..victorious..
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-53-57.jpg
    From left to right..I think..FlammieBC, Ghostalker, Sk, Gear Girl, Hope Faraday, Foul Flame, and Kabuto. Global names anyway I forget all the character names...

    Despite having no corpse of Ruladak's to teabag we are there in spirit..
    screenshot_2007-11-10-20-55-14.jpg

    Thus ends the tale of Team Awesomesauce. Sometime later Team Failatlife finally finishes.

    That was damn fun once we got rolling. In fact it was a lot shorter than I expected, took us what three hours, not bad.

    I got up close and personal for most of the fight, the results:

    Gear was poking me to come back so I had a look. They're giving Fury to blasters or something similar? The more damage you do, the more damage you do. So in other words my Mr Fusion will have a power he will actually use 95% of the time? Neat.
    Also just having the option of more respecs is dragging me back into the game with its siren call. I like to mix up my builds frequently, try out new things etc. I may resub for a while when Issue 11 hits.

    Well yes the examplaree or whatever the fuck it is called gets xp as per normal but the examplar doesn't.

    The way it works is...

    Examplaree(Normal Xp, Money, Debt Clearing ect)
    Examplar same level as Examplaree(No Xp, More Money, More? Debt Clearing)
    Mentor(Normal Xp, Money, Debt Clearing ect)
    Sidekick one level lower then Mentor(Is -1 so slightly higher xp percentage, Normal Money, Normal Debt Clearing)

    Not quite. it's a 12.5% damage boost across the board, none of this scaling shit, and even while mezzed you can use your first two primary set powers and your first secondary set power.

    They're now kinda built to directly counter Doms.

    Each time you attack, you get a stacking damage buff with a fixed duration. The value of that buff is determined by the attack fired, and single target attacks will provide a larger effect than AoE attacks (they'll be calculated using the inverse of the number of targets calc used for damage/end costs.) Duration and actual numeric values aren't final yet.

    That's on top of the 12.5% Range Damage increase and the cast through status effect for tier 1 and 2 powers.

    Here's the Dev post I just quoted.

    From experience helpin a friend, it's generally faster for them to SK up than for you to exemp down. Kill rate is higher, and generally everything will be better.

    The only downside to SKing is that they might end up missing some story arcs.

    Yeah, so I took Victorious to the test server to give Orouboros a spin.

    Only to discover I have done almost every story arc available to the character.

    I had no idea I had done so much with him.

    Then again, he was my first CoV character that I made when it came out.

    He's still only level 32

    They're giving my Blaster a 12.5% ranged damage boost across the board.

    I mostly started and ended my fights at 100-70% health, so defiance never touched me unless shit hit the fan. And it usually hit the fan because I wasn't doing enough damage by like a smidgen so they got in something nasty. They're giving me the smidgen for free.
    I'm really looking forward to this change and trying it out. I can't see a downside anywhere.

    I love how the blasters on the official forums are whining. It turns a fair amount of them wanted straight-up Mag 3 mez protection as an AT inherent. How fucking retarded can you be? Really, the devs are going to just go out and give you single-stack protection? Of course, these are the same people that want slow and energy drain protection in every set so I shouldn't be too surprised.

    I guess if I whine long enough about Gauntlet maybe they'll give tanks a version of Fury that pumps defense and feeds my cats and cooks me steaks. I should start whining about an AT I play all the time anyways right now!

    I've always thought everyone should get base Mag 3 mez protection. The gulf between melee and non-melee mez protection has always seemed pretty stupid to me, especially since most mezzes are ranged anyways.

    More people are complaining about potentially longer animations for Ice Blast and Fire Blast (the powers, not the powersets) I think.

    couple that with the incoming boost to Blasters (leading to an eventual change to Defiance) and a brand new laser-sighted compound bow

    What I'm more impressed with is how he took it pretty well and didn't get all "Guys I'm sorry I can't play a game that has this big of an asshole playing". Even for duck that seemed a little over the top though.

    Yes that sort of sucks, but at the same time maybe the normalization will get more people into other sets. Elec will still suck no matter what, but there's more to the AT than Ice and Fire.
