    How about something like this? (unsure on what under-jacket armor to use, and I accidentally forgot the belt on the left, heh)

    modernarbalest3gy1.png

    It may be a bit too different in that it drops the scarf, zorro mask, fedora, and messes with his beard, but stays closer to his "plain clothes hero" look than the previous bodysuit. Also the colors are much duller/darker (He is more of a Crimson Arbalest), but it looked odd in a brighter red. Not sure about it, but thats the purpose of experimentation.


    And now another idea, just going for straight heavy Flak armor.

    I like the jacket, but I may be biased since my guys got a slightly similar look. I think it works well though.


    Also,
    What level TF are you talking about? Id be up for it about that time if Im high enough.

    NCsoft sent me an email to let me know my trial was over. I was bored so I sent the support line a reply saying "Can't you just let me play for free?". I've been escalated once, and they have let me know that they are continuing to work on my issue.

    I have come to the following conclusions about Crab spiders:

    1) pre-24 sucks total ass solo, is pretty good group
    2) post-24 is pretty good solo and a fucking monster grouped

    Most fun I've ever had, Suppression never gets old :D

    Browsing the forums while I should be working, it appears the latest subscription #s are out from NCSoft's financials. Good news for once, numbers are actually up over the previous report.
    Thread
    So, I was just checking the NCSoft website for their quarterly report, and guess what?
    For the first time since Issue 9, the subscription numbers are going up.

    I tribute this to the diligence of our tireless devs.

    Here are the numbers, on a quarterly basis since launch:

    What's probably less good news is that NCSoft just fired a truckload of people, including CuppaJo and a fair number of people in the Austin studio, including Scott "Lum the Mad" Jennings and his entire team that was in the middle of working on a new MMO.

    I had pretty much the exact opposite opinion of my Crab. I loved playing him up until I had branch off, after that he felt very bland.

    Well, as long as they leave the Norcal studio alone, I don't really care.

    She was a moderator for their forums, but I dunno how closely she was involved outside of that. But really, this is pointing to signs that the Austin studios are being shut down, as previously rumored. Dungeon Runners has never really made any money, and it will likely get axed. NCSoft's Korean leaders are quite peeved at the Garriott brothers in general, and it's also extremely likely they'll drop the hammer on Tabula Rasa before too long, if it doesn't improve. I guess they've decided enough is enough, and this quarter's overall drop in profits won't stand.

    This. The only other NCsoft game I care even a little about is Exteel, and thats just a "hop on and blow shit up for 30 minutes" type game.

    Whatever happened to this mask?

    The screenshot is from a character I had in CoV beta. I went to recreate him today and could not find the wrapped mask anywhere. It is unfortunate because I think it is a great looking texture, especially if you want to create a scarred up character who is hiding their face.

    Yea, almost like getting fired in gradual steps.

    I tried that but it isn't the same thing. IF you look closely you can tell the mask in the pic is all one texture smacked onto the face like a Full/Ninja Mask with a different eye slot.

    Is that the sort of Mummy-wrap face mask? Its one of the things like the Pirate Shirt that showed up in CoV beta but never made it to the live game. No one ever said why they were removed.

    Upper right corner. He hit 50. It took me a few minutes too.

    Also that top hat kind of looked like a hilariously overlarge pompadour for a second.

    Permadom is waaaaaay lower than that. You catch that around 75%. 132.5, however, will let you permadom without Hasten, which is pretty crazy. I'm sure that was a lot of purples and LotGs, which I imagine you have in your stealth powers.

    It IS the 132.5% global recharge! I'm permadom'd without hasten! I am also perma hastened, perma-drain psyche'd, and perma-patron pet'd. I am a horrible tiny screaming god of horrible doom. It feels good. Really good guys.

    well see. without hasten, i would only get to scream directly into the brains of everyone around me every 3.1 seconds, instead of every 2.6. Also none of those other things i mentioned as perma would be perma.

    So basically i have enough global recharge to warp space time.
