City of Heroes / Re: The state of the community

There are always going to be " those guys ", but for the most part I think we are slowly getting back to the Original Core Community. It's almost every day I see someone posting how happy they are to be back or asking how things have changed in Help. It was a long wait to get back here, and a little Toxic in the beginning, but I think we are going to be OK.

As a sub-note on hunting out of Level Range, I have done this a bit lately to acquire Badges etc. but always tried to do it in a way that didn't affect others as much as possible. The hardest was UnVeiler as there are only a few places to Hunt Fake Nemesis with any success, but If someone showed up in the area, I would just do something else for a bit. Plenty room for everyone. Plenty other badges to work on.

I will confess I am a little frustrated with a handful of persons on the Homecoming Forums, who seem to delight, although they deny it, in turning almost every post into a Battleground. I have only ran into a few People from Live or PC there or in-game since it's been back, which is a little Sad since PC had such a great group of people,. Probably just on a different Server or Shard, but I would enjoy hanging out with some of the Titan People, they kept the community going as much as anyone else.

Now here is something that is definitely different between the Cryptic 3.. The in-game Zen trade is apparently broken due to being flooded Astral Diamond traders. There's already millions of Zen being requested at the maximum allowed rate of trade - 1 Zen to 750 Astral Diamonds.

I wonder how long its been broken? Was the mod 16 thing *that* bad? Or are Astrals just that easy to get. They aren't that hard to get at all even for a newbie.

Anyway, I finally got around to checking out the market with my newb and that's what I found: (screenie)

You can't sell Astrals there. The line is apparently too long.

I saw that discussion last week, and after I saw the talk page, I did look at the Atlas Medallion page, and noted the difference. However, I found several other villain badges that have both hero and villain lists, and several hero badges that do not. In fact, it seems to me that there is, generally, a lot to be desired in terms of badges that change name or are awarded depending on alignment and things like that.

It's odd that the badge pages with both hero and villain ways have a list of ways to get it for each alignment, and then also say "OR earn the alternate equivalent." I don't remember well enough if that's how it worked on live. But if you look at the Marshal badge ( you can see that in the hero list, it tells heroes to earn the "The Next Big Thing" badge, which is in Mercy, and therefore unobtainable by heroes - but theoretically obtainable by vigilantes (I think?).

So it seems to me that ideally, a thorough revamp of these types of badges would be the best way to go. I don't want to do that, but if I did, I would reexamine every badge that switched names or was obtainable in different ways for heroes and villains (starting with: and and double check the methods used to obtain them, and provide lists for *all four* alignments to achieve these badges. I suspect that for some badges, that would mean the lists become something like: "heroes: gain hero badge X and switch alignments to villain; villains, rogues, and vigilantes, do these tasks." But I don't know if that's how it would work.
Brute / Re: Dark/Dark help?

i'd suggest looking at the homecoming brute section. but in general acrobatics is unnecessary since blessing of the zephyr was introduced. can throw one of those in travel power for 4 pts protection and if you want 8 another in combat jumping or a steadfast or karma -kb somewhere. or for dark armor with all those resist powers i'd suggest sticking a resist and res/end glad armor in one with your glad armor global defense. 3 pieces of that gives 3 points of kb protection.

I remember having a lot of fun back on live with this setup. But I can't for the life of me remember the build. I do recall having acrobatics to help mitigate the knockback/ knockdown, but that's about it. Any ideas or suggestions for build?

After honing my build down to a fine point (and being somewhat underwhelmed)...….

I read some discouraging things about current Warlock deeps and good things about Warlock heals. So, I decided to give the Soulweaver option a try, and, suddenly I could join any queue I want and put in a very respectable showing (nearly always wayyyyy on top of the Heals Deeps final tally and often in the middle with DPS Deeps charts) which usually included many fewer deaths. I usually top the Damage Taken charts with this build, too.

My Hellbringer build is the build I've played since level 1. I know it by far the best. Day 1 as a Soulweaver seemingly yielded superior results.

In conclusion: Warlocks seem to currently be deeps challenged. However, thankfully, I enjoy being on heals sometimes, too, so all my efforts to gear and level and learn this toon haven't been a total waste.

It was kinda interesting to play an (very effective) Alt while on my Main. In EverQuest my main just happened to be a Warlock type toon with a specter pet and my main alt was a cleric. Deja vu.

My oblivious to Mod 16 carnage, fun, continues. Mod 16 seems to be one of Cryptic's infamous game gutting .. updates. I'm glad I missed it and I hope the don't do a Champions Online and stay on that road - leaving the game smaller than they found it.
ParagonWiki / Tables of badges on accolade powers

I'd like to get more eyes on the discussion at, which currently consists of me and someone confused about what Null did on live.

(The next bit will make more sense having read that discussion).

I think it's most important that the various pages that describe accolade powers that can only be awarded on either blueside or redside are consistently organised. Presently they are not - this badge has a redside column, but does not.

I would personally prefer that the way they are consistently organised is to remove the opposite-side column. is a userspace draft of what I propose. However, even if the consensus is to give them all columns for redside and blueside, I'd still be happy to make the changes to display them consistently.

My first Neverwinter .. idea.

Find a way that when I search the Auction House I can get per item prices on stuff that I want to sell (and buy) without having to do long division.

Auction House qty and price listing numbers are nearly always … large and/or odd on stackable items. Maybe just put in an extra field in the listing that shows the per item price, for reference.

HERC remains on hiatus, so there are no events planned for a vigil.  We remain stuck at the same anomaly as back in April, just like on Futurama. 

Either you can keep staring and scream at it, or go about your life as normal (or something in-between).
