Lore Discussions / Is Paragon City what it seems?
« on: January 01, 2022, 01:00:16 am »
Paragon City is supposed to be a shining light of truth and justice, but I've come to the sad conclusion that Paragon city is a fascist hell-hole every bit as bad as Praetoria.  How can that be you say?  Consider the following points:
  • ‘Heroes’ are frequently tasked with going out and defeating ‘villain’ groups in the streets.  Often times these groups are just peacefully standing around in their own groups talking.
  • ‘Heroes’ are frequently tasked with an unannounced forceful entrance and search of buildings without a warrant.  Oftentimes with the purpose of taking things that belong to that group.  The Circle of Thorns are frequently victims of these blatant thefts.
  • ‘Heroes’ don’t perform heroic duties that are beneath them.  I have never seen a member of the Freedom Phalanx stoop to helping a mugging victim, have you?  For that matter, how many mugging victims do ‘Heroes’ ignore because it doesn’t give them enough influence or prestige?
  • Elite criminals are frequently sent to the Zig even though the authorities know they will escape.  No effort has been made to prevent these repeated escapes.  This cannot be an accident.
  • Only the elite few get access to the medi-porter while the most vulnerable in society are left to suffer.  We have been told there is a good reason, but never what that reason is.  Perhaps the good reason is not as wholesome as we would like.
At least the Rogue Isles do not pretend to be virtuous.

The good news is that the good citizens of Paragon City are beginning to realize their leaders are not looking out for them.  You can now see them protesting the lack of access to medi-porter technology.  Hopefully they will also realize the rest of the horror that Paragon City has become.

On the Controller at least, Witchcraft Universal Debuff set is not usable for Siphon Power, Siphon Speed, Transference, Transfusion, and Fulcrum Shift even though they apply debuffs. 

Note - Witchcraft Universal debuff set does work with Siphon speed. 

Certain missions are TOO easy to farm, see our official stance on AE leveling farms.  PL'ing is fine with us but we are not willing to let it get past a certain point of difficulty.  For instance the classic wolf mish will stay with a timer since it is probably easier to farm then even a fire farm.
Ah, so the AE farms are a compromise.  Fair enough.

Player Help/Guides / Archive of Build Examples
« on: November 12, 2021, 12:30:44 pm »
Having a starting point from which to build is really helpful, and that is where this massive archive of builds can come in handy:

You can find a Rebirth customized version of Mid's Hero-Builder which can read these files in this thread:,7.msg10.html.

Note: Some of these builds are quite old and predate the inclusion of Stamina as an inherent power, and will generate an error message.  This just means you can slot another power there.

Disclaimers:  I created none of the linked content.  Use caution when downloading from links provided by strangers on the internet.

Mods: if this is in the wrong place, feel free to move post. There was no option to add a post to Archetypes, only the various subtopics.

Cool, is there a list of known bugs I can consult so I don't spam you guys with stuff you already know about?

Last item on rewards list says Very Rare Recipe, but the description still tells you that it is 5 super inspirations.  Actual reward is the very rare recipe.

Live Bug Reporting / ATO style 'purples' cannot be 'out of set' converted
« on: November 09, 2021, 08:33:28 pm »
I tried converting the ATO style (round) very rare Absolute Amazement.  The system will not let me attempt to convert it; it will not allow the enhancement into the converter when out of set is selected.  The normal Absolute Amazement converts as normal.

General Suggestions and Feedback / Some Quality of Life items to consider.
« on: November 08, 2021, 02:53:58 pm »
A couple of Quality of life suggestions to consider.  I am not sure about the technical difficulties of implementing, but it sure would be nice if we could:
  • Eliminate timers on portal missions that were put in place to prevent farming, since farming/power leveling is more or less endorsed now.  These timers are a needless hassle.
  • Allow players to invite others to team in the midst of flashback missions.  The server isn't heavily populated, and i sometimes feel bad when there are people looking to team, but I can't invite because I'm completing a flashback Arc.  The linkage to Task Force might be a technical hurdle, but perhaps inviting others to an in-progress TF wouldn't be so horrible either...
