Ice Armor style powers now have four new, less obtrusive power themes so your character no longer has to be covered in ice cubes! This affects Ice Armor's Frozen Armor, Wet Ice, Glacial Armor, and Energy Absorption (only has Frost theme for now), Cold Domination's Ice Shield and Glacial Shield, and all versions of Frozen Armor in ancillary/patron pools.
- Icy Coating theme: A shifting layer of thin icy chips fitting closer to your character's body

- Chill Armor theme: A cloud of cold mist around your character
- No Covering theme: A minimal FX style theme with no obscuring graphics

Live Bug Reporting / Re: Entrepreneur badge not awarding crafting discount tokens
« Last post by BladeSnow on December 04, 2021, 06:12:09 am »
Glad to hear you figured it out, in the meantime this tells me I may as well move the alts I've been slowly working through various locations trying to find one that works to other tasks. My vague recollection is that particular accolade kept getting fixed and rebroke in new and interesting ways on live, but it's been so long I may be conflating it with other odd issues. One of the many quirky mysteries of CoH. There were all kinds of weird quirks about some of the location based stuff like that, which did not always necessarily make it into the wiki entries or other references other than sometimes the old forums. Some red name back in the day quipped that they enjoyed code that fights back, but not so much when it keeps winning.

Live Bug Reporting / NPCS Spawned in the wall in Bloody bay
« Last post by Joshex on December 02, 2021, 05:07:08 pm »
In Bloody Bay, some happless new longbow recruits must have crawled inside the outer walls of the #3 hospital and found it difficult to get out. I know something is in there because I can see the defense buffs circling them, I think I saw part of one of them and presume them to be wall mounted pop-up anti personell turrets. So maybe this is less of a hiding staff thing and more of a "witless wonder maintenance worker installed them in the wall backwards" situation.

Please take a look at changing their placement in the image. might be handy for a GM to go there in game and attempt to move them first.

Edit: let me be clear, I am not part of the dev team at all, just another player like you.

The team is aware of this issue. Thank you for posting about it here in the forums for there to be a record. They are largely sure they know what might be causing it. But have not found the time to fix it yet as there are a few more pressing issues.

I too have several characters with this accolade and am experiencing the same thing. It bothers me as well. I had previously openned a ticket about it on the discord server, I think they closed it. So this thread is a good reminder.

Live Bug Reporting / Entrepreneur badge not awarding crafting discount tokens
« Last post by BladeSnow on December 01, 2021, 05:34:51 pm »
I've got at least 4 characters with the dayjob accolade Entrepreneur from earning both Shopkeeper and Day Trader. It is supposed to award you crafting discount tokens which give you a discount when crafting inventions. I've tried parking characters in both the Atlas Park and Talos Island Wentworths, and several shops around in various zones. On my list of things to try I haven't got around to yet is touring all the WW & shops in every zone, but given some of the other oddities of this accolade that I'm aware of that takes a while.

As yet I've still not earned any crafting discount tickets despite making sure to wait multiple days between logins on some of the characters. I mention that because I'm aware from both my experiences on live and encountering a similar issue on Homecoming that unlike nearly every other day job accolade, Entrepreneur appears to not keep track of fractional times. If you log in before the interval which would make an award, you get nothing and start over. The interval for Entrepreneur is quite a bit longer than most of them I believe, and if you logged in every day on live you'd never get a ticket.

Unless the time for each award is set FAR higher than I've ever seen, it is simply not working at all on Rebirth. My latest test I waited until the "days offline" was showing 3 days on a couple of characters standing in Talos Wentworth and the tech shop in Talos, and still nothing. It's a minor thing, but wanted to get a report filed so someone can look into it one of these days. I'd also suggest lowering the time to a smaller fraction of a day OR fixing the "discard fractions" if that's what's happening, so you don't get screwed for logging in every alt on a daily basis.

Also possible someone may know a spot that works or some odd thing you need to do to get the crafting discounts to award. I think I remember a time even on live where only certain shops or Wentworths in certain zones were awarding the tickets, though I thought by i23 they had sorted all that out. I'll continue my slow testing and update if I ever see any award.

« Last post by mainsil on November 27, 2021, 02:54:47 pm »
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.
