You dont have more power, just more power options. Its not like golds get a damage buff.
Well they can get more powers to make their already powerful character even more powerful, for example "Form of the Swordsman", which basically gives you an insane damage boost with only a slight increase in power cost, and since my Blade got that skill the damage output rose by about 50% averaged. Freeforms can just take more skills like that. They can, for example, take a couple of skills for massive damage output, like Scything Blades with the afore mentioned Form of the Swordsman, then they can get that Invulnerability passive, get some kind of really powerful block, possibly the Ice one and something for self healing and they can basically be a King of All Trades, instead of a Master of one.
Now tell me Gold players have only a slight advantage over Sliver. The difference in power between them is unreal.
Then I guess dont play or dont be gold. You dont like it but you "abuse" it.
I suck so much at trying to figure out a good power set that my one-month Gold time was practically wasted by shitty characters where I impulse-bought attacks en masse.
Also, I really hate Blade-types that use a Hold attack and then slice you to death while stunned. Since my characters are usually ranged, I can hold my own against players in my level range if they're also ranged (unless they have a passive); the moment a melee player attacks me, I either wipe the floor with them because they have basic attacks or they curbstomp me by doing faster and stronger damage outputs before I can blink (because of, again, passives).
I'm totally confused now. I had reached level 23 and had finished up pretty much everything within my level range at the Desert and Millenium City when Kinetik tells me to go to Canada. I get sent to a Crisis Area that's meant for level 6 people, and when I breezed through it I got sent to a guy who has MORE low-leveled quests (well, the guy Kinetik sent me to had missions appropriate for my level, but this other guy I was directed to, Justiciar, is almost exclusively low-level). I feel like I'd be missing out on cool lore and plot stuff if I ignore the lower-level stuff, so is it wrong if I tried to do them?
I know this video is old but I think its awesomeness warrants a repost:
I think I'm going to take a break from CO until I get an income, which honestly shouldn't be long. Still, I don't have the money to support a subscription just yet, and I've gotten too far to make a new character with the free archetypes.
Walked into that bar place.
See a really short anime looking person say "All humans are evil!" and emote kill the two nearest NPCs.
What's the best free to play archetype.
I made a shitty glacier, but I think I'm going to start again.
Also, deciding on movement things is hard.
I think I'm going to go soldier, for sure.
Soldier seems p rad and powerful.
I found out. Beat the Resistance adventure on Elite.
Easy way: run it all on Normal until you reach the sewers, log off for 5 min, switch it to Elite, finish the mission.
I know it doesn't end there but you can run it on Normal until that point.
I just started this game and what the fuck is this
It's your destiny.
GO FOR IT BRO!
Having too much fun on the character creator
whats the best travel power?
imma go with flight
Flight or teleportation if you want to be plain.
Superspeed if you want to be the fastest on land.
Jumping if you want to be flashy.
Acrobatics if you want to be exotic or you want level 2 superspeed and level 2 jumping combined.
Though I am torn on one issue. I've got my second travel power coming up next level, and I am trying to decide between Acrobatics or Swinging. Swinging is just incredibly fun, but acrobatics is more practical.
Swinging all the way. That power kicks major ass.
No sign of steroids at all.
Super jump is literally faster than super speed because you can jump over everything, and not give a single fuck.
Teleport is better than both, because fuck having to deal with any problems ever.
Also, made a behemoth, this is pretty fun.
