    Patch Notes: Issue 27, Page 2

    Tour Guide Missions

    Issue 27, Page 2 introduces a brand new type of mission: Tour Guide Missions. These are special tip missions which drop when street sweeping in most zones, and will direct you to any exploration badges that you haven't yet earned in that zone. This is especially helpful for unlocking Long Range Teleporter destinations without needing to rely on VidiotMaps.


    Detailed Info

    • Enemies in most zones now have a small chance to drop a Tour Guide Mission Tip
      • The tips will only drop when street sweeping, by defeating enemies out on the streets (critters spawned through other means will not count)
      • The tips will drop regardless of your level - grey conned mobs will still drop tips - however, the tip drop rate increases based on the rank of the enemy you're fighting (ie: bosses are more likely to drop tips)
      • Tour Guide Missions are classed as Tips, and will show up in the Tips tab of the Contacts window
      • You can only hold one tip per zone at a time, but can carry a total of three
    • Investigating this tip will direct you to one of the exploration badges in that zone
      • Once accepted, these missions cannot be abandoned, autocompleted, or team completed - you must visit the badge location, which will auto-complete the mission
      • If you earn the exploration badge for a specific tip before investigating it, it will point you towards a different exploration badge in that zone
      • If you earn the exploration accolade before investigating the tip, you will only be able to dismiss it
    • They do not grant any additional rewards beyond the badge
    • All zones which can be unlocked in the Long Range Teleporter have Tour Guide Missions set up (apart from Pocket D and Kallisti Wharf), which is a total of 288 missions!

    Step 1: Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls.



    Step 2: Acquire Tips.



    Step 3: Collect Badges.



    Travel Power Updates

    This update brings a wide range of buffs for travel pools, a brand new travel power (as part of an update to the Concealment pool), and some mechanical improvements to how travel powers work. Check out this thread for a detailed breakdown of these changes and our goals for this update.


    Travel Power Stacking

    • Almost all travel powers are no longer mutually exclusive and can be activated at the same time, but only the strongest buff of each type (run speed, jump speed, jump height, fly speed, air control) will apply
      • This ensures that every power you pick or activate will only ever improve your mobility
    • Some exceptions:
      • Click buffs (eg: Inertial Reduction), external buffs (eg: Speed Boost), and auto powers (eg: Swift) still stack as they did before
      • Prestige Run powers (Ninja Run, Beast Run, Athletic Run) are still mutually exclusive with each other
      • Temporary jetpacks are still mutually exclusive with each other
      • Sprint powers still stack with other run speed buffs and are still mutually exclusive with each other
      • Some Peacebringer flight powers and effects are mutually exclusive with their vanilla counterparts

    Level Scaling

    • Travel powers no longer increase in strength as you level up, the previous level 50 values now apply at all levels
    • Travel speed caps no longer increase in strength as you level up, the previous level 50 values now apply at all levels

    Inherent Fitness

    • All Inherent Fitness powers are now gained at level 1 rather than level 2

    Travel Stances

    • Inherent_Stance.png.bff60c9e229a9535f3c9d586a1f53e24.png Inherent > Stance
      • Added Ninja, Beast and Slide Travel Power Only customization options
      • Selecting one of these options will cause the stance to only become active if any of the following powers are active:
        • SuperSpeed_SuperSpeed.png.c7b0740d9fa4bdf6622415eef245128d.png Super Speed
        • Experimentation_SpeedofSound.png.b0a70628ecee418730de416ea7fe7fd1.png Speed of Sound
        • Jump_LongJump.png.965618363ac8f16e7cc32209f5ee6b1c.png Super Jump
        • ForceofWill_MightyLeap.png.68958a297bf392684d4f96375d0e0a27.png Mighty Leap
        • Infiltration.png.b5c57bbeaf9ea728fcbbc5b151e63f44.png Infiltration

    Concealment Pool

    • Concealment has been updated to include a new sneaky & versatile travel power: Infiltration
      • Concealment is now classed as a travel pool - the first 3 powers in the pool are available immediately instead of just the first 2
      • Invisibility and Stealth have been merged together, the best parts of both powers are now available with just Stealth
      • Infiltration now sits where Invisibility used to be in the T3 slot
    • Invisibility_Stealth.png.104f33f2f11bf3378ee0ba5b0fa04d5a.png Stealth
      • Stealth radius increased to match the numbers Invisibility had before this patch
        • PvE radius has increased from 36ft to 55ft
        • PvP radius has increased from 389ft to 611ft
      • Out of combat defense increased from 3.5% to 7%
        • The defense bonuses suppression in this power has been cleaned up, and will now suppress if the user attacks, heals or buffs an ally, commands a pet, is hit by a foe or the user attacks or interacts with a mission objective
        • In-combat defence is unchanged
      • Added a new 'Invisible' customization theme that makes the player barely visible when active
      • Should this power be called Invisibility or Stealth? Have your say here!
    • Infiltration.png.b5c57bbeaf9ea728fcbbc5b151e63f44.png Infiltration
      • Replaces Invisibility as Concealment's T3 power
        • If you previously had Invisibility, you will now have Infiltration
      • Grants a run and jump bonus similar to Ninja Run
      • Grants out-of-combat stealth
        • 36ft in PvE, 389ft in PvP (the same values as Stealth before this patch)
      • Grants 1.75% out of combat defense

    Flight Pool

    • flight_combatflight.png.c5103d219b0511d0703390a1030c9f32.png Hover
      • Added new "No Pose" customization themes that allows you to remove the Hover stance
        • Note that the Hover stance has a higher priority than the default fly stance, meaning if Hover is active it will always apply even if other flight powers are also active, unless it's been disabled in power customisation
    • Flight_TravelFlight.png.74244b2f884386eb35f8ac9428278017.png Fly
      • Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph)
        • This increased cap is the equivalent of fully slotting the old version of Afterburner
        • This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP
      • Flight_Afterburner.png.9890bf9208f976be5c62e00f21c62b82.png Fly > Afterburner
        • Now built into Fly as a free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick
          • If you already had Fly, you will now also have Afterburner for free
        • Now a timed toggle (30s duration, 60s cooldown) which increases your flight speed cap by a further 25% (to 102.27mph), and speeds you up significantly
        • No longer applies Only Affect Self or any other effects
          • Evasive Maneuvers has inherited most of Afterburner's old defensive effects
        • Added a Minimal FX customisation theme
        • Null the Gull will allow you to hide Afterburner's pop-up tray
    • image.png.a9de0837a33cf33379309a4bbfe9e4d0.png Group Fly
      • This power now applies to all pets regardless of their distance from the caster
      • No longer inaccurately claims it applies -Acc
    • Flight_EvasiveManeuvers.png.1e67b92f6c3529ffd38620fc25871fd4.png Evasive Maneuvers
      • Replaces the old version of Afterburner as Flight's tier 5 power
        • If you previously had Afterburner, you now have Evasive Maneuvers
        • Note that if you previously had Fly, the speed bonus previously given by Afterburner is built into Fly for free, and you'll get the new version of Afterburner as a free popup tray power
      • Evasive Maneuvers is a defensive toggle with moderate endurance cost (0.26/s), aimed at providing you with excellent airborne combat mobility
      • Provides the following effects whilst another Flight pool power (Fly, Hover or Group Fly) is also active:
        • -Fly and immobilize protection
        • Knockback resistance
        • Significant air control
        • Some unsuppressed flight speed (allowing you to fly much faster during combat)
      • Also provides the same level of defense as old Afterburner while out of combat, but this is removed while in combat
        • This bonus is suppressed for 10s when entering combat (the same as Stealth's out-of-combat defence)
        • The defense bonuses will suppress if the user attacks, heals or buffs an ally, commands a pet, or interacts with a mission objective

    Sorcery Pool

    • SorceryPool_MysticFlight.png.3c6f2d0385535a1e3b309b5542f2c605.png Mystic Flight
      • Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph)
        • This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP
      • SorceryPool_Translocation.png.acd807b4b949c7684267c11fb7cda7bb.png Mystic Flight > Translocation

    Speed Pool

    • SuperSpeed_SuperSpeed.png.c7b0740d9fa4bdf6622415eef245128d.png Super Speed
      • Now increases your run speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 92.5mph to 120.25mph)
        • This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP
      • Now has a new momentum leap mechanic
        • Running will build up momentum, allowing you to perform a single very high, very long jump after approximately 4 seconds of running
        • Jumping will cause you to expend your momentum - after landing, you'll need to remain grounded and running in order to perform another momentum jump
        • Super Speed's icon will gain a yellow ring when you are at maximum momentum
      • SuperSpeed_SpeedPhase.png.be2bac846fa85fc6ccc538976819a9c0.png Super Speed > Speed Phase
        • New free secondary (server tray) power that doesn't require a power pick
        • Toggle, moderate endurance cost
        • Removes collision with characters (ie: phase shift without being untargetable), and sets you to Only Affect Self
          • This allows you to pass through enemies, allies, civilians, cars, and even the Atlas Park blimp!
          • The effects of this power (including the OAS component) will suppress if you are attacked or damaged by an enemy
          • Note: as this power doesn't actually make you intangible, it doesn't trigger (and isn't affected by) the No Phase timer
        • Null the Gull will allow you to hide Speed Phase's pop-up tray

    Experimentation Pool

    • Experimentation_SpeedofSound.png.b0a70628ecee418730de416ea7fe7fd1.png Speed of Sound

        • Timed toggle, 30 second duration (10s in PvP), 30 second cooldown shared with Jump Pack and Steam Jump
        • Allows you to jump to an unlimited height and jump again mid-air
        • Null the Gull will allow you to hide Double Jump's pop-up tray

    Force of Will Pool

    • ForceofWill_MightyLeap.png.68958a297bf392684d4f96375d0e0a27.png Mighty Leap
      • Now increases your jump speed cap by 30% while toggled on (from 78.2mph to 101.8mph)
        • This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP
      • ForceofWill_Stomp.png.d2ed9aec030afaa6250005e989685a11.png Mighty Leap > Takeoff
        • Now increases jump speed cap by a further 10% (to 110.39mph) and boosts Mighty Leap to put you at the jump speed cap for 30 seconds
          • Previously this bonus was just under 20%, but it now stacks with the 30% bonus from Mighty Leap

    Teleportation Pool

    • Teleportation_RecallTeleport1.png.e272eacb06c73f3f512fc27ef8e5249b.png Teleport Target
      • The following changes have been made when teleporting allies only (the teleport foe component remains unchanged);
        • Removed the 4s interrupt window, significantly speeding up the activation time
        • Increased the recharge by 4s
        • These two changes combined result in the total time between teleports being the same if you have no recharge buffs or enhancements - but it will much faster if you slot for (or are buffed for) recharge
    • Teleportation_Teleport.png.819d87e01d817f62694b6effd01c3432.png Teleport
      • Base range increased from 300ft to 350ft
        • Enhanced range (2x level 50 IOs) increased from 449.1ft to 523.95ft
      • The post-teleport hover buff has been adjusted
        • Now lasts up to 15s, rather than 6s
        • The hover buff will cancel if you move, interact with an objective, attack a foe or are attacked by a foe
        • Teleport's endurance cost is reduced by 50% while this hover buff is active, allowing you to use much less endurance when chaining teleports over long distances
      • Activation time reduced from 2s to 1.5s
      • The actual teleport now happens at 1.0s into the activation, rather than 1.97s into the activation
        • This allows you slightly more time to select the location of your next teleport
      • Location targeting has also received some improvements which also affect Teleport, see "Teleportation Targeting & /powexec_location" in the Miscellaneous section

      • Mechanically identical to Evasive Maneuvers, but prettier
      • Note that Quantum Maneuvers cannot be active at the same time as Evasive Maneuvers

      • Now applies Only Affecting Self
      • Fly speed reduced to match unslotted Fly
        • Previously you couldn't use anything (even Swift) to increase your fly speed using these powers, so they had a slightly increased speed by default

    Pool Powerset Update: Sorcery

    Issue 27, page 2 is bringing an overhaul to the Sorcery pool, aimed at making the pool more viable for the widest majority of builds without causing it to be too strong for high-end builds. Check out this thread for a detailed breakdown of these changes and our goals for this update.

    • sorcerypool_spiritward.png.29314783d01256c5f9fcf5831e7e71bc.png Spirit Ward
      • This power is now a toggle which can be maintained on an allied target
        • 0.39/s endurance cost
      • Now provides a continually refreshing absorb shield for as long as the toggle is maintained
        • Each tick of the absorb shield lasts for 20s, meaning it will take 20s to max out or fully refresh the shield
      • The initial cast provides a burst of absorb shield
        • This initial burst is the equivalent of a 10s of the refreshing absorb shield
      • The strength of the Absorb shield now scales based on the caster's AT, rather than the target's health
        • ie: Defenders will apply a stronger shield (this is how all other ally buffs and heals work)
      • Cooldown reduced from 60s to 15s
    • sorcerypool_arcanebolt.png.f5320592c9f15bc9728afab0fe3ffaa1.png Arcane Bolt
      • Cast time reduced from 2.07s to 1.73s
        • PvE damage unchanged, PvP damage updated according to the standard formula
      • If you own Arcane Bolt, any power or inspiration you use has a small chance to grant you an Arcane Power buff
        • Arcane Power will immediately recharge Arcane Bolt and cause it to deal double damage
        • Landing Arcane Bolt will consume Arcane Power (missing will not consume it)
        • Arcane Power will dissipate after 15 seconds if it hasn't been used
        • Arcane Power's visual effect can be customised at the tailor
      • Note: This mechanic is disabled in PvP
    • SorceryPool_MysticFlight.png.3c6f2d0385535a1e3b309b5542f2c605.png Mystic Flight
      • Now increases your fly speed cap by 50% while toggled on (from 58.6mph to 87.9mph)
        • See the "Travel Power Updates" section above for more information on this speed cap increase
        • This increased cap doesn't apply in PvP
      • SorceryPool_Translocation.png.acd807b4b949c7684267c11fb7cda7bb.png Mystic Flight > Translocation
        • Range increased from 300ft to 350ft
        • Cast time reduced from 2.07s to 1.57s
        • Endurance cost reduced from 13 to 9.75
    • sorcerypool_enflame.png.b13064792d0e5c7d974c2daed1d1bb04.png Enflame
      • This power is now a timed toggle with a max duration of 60s
        • 0.52/s endurance cost
      • Cooldown reduced from 90s to 10s
      • Can now be used on targets in the air
      • The patch no longer causes enemies to run out of the area, but they may still flee if they feel harassed
      • VFX increased in size to more accurately reflect the full area of effect
      • Fixed dark and light customization options not spawning any VFX at all
      • Fixed numerous bugs which resulted in this power not benefiting from enhancements and procs
        • Procs are triggered by the toggle in a radius around the target, rather than by the patches left on the ground
    • sorcerypool_runeofprotection.png.d31667d01d7dbf6687a2cf3a42e73644.png Rune of Protection
      • Duration reduced from 90s to 60s
      • Cooldown reduced from 600s to 180s
      • Now ignores all recharge buffs, enhancements, and debuffs
        • No longer accepts recharge enhancements
      • Buff now applies immediately when the power begins activating, instead of 1s~ into the animation
      • Now grants damage resistance even if you use it whilst mezzed (previously only the mez protection component would be applied)
      • Fixed an issue which prevented the continuing VFX from playing

    More information can be found in the Sorcery Pool Updates thread, please use that thread to discuss these changes


    Powers Changes

    Power Animation & Rooting Update

    • Power animation time and rooting time have been decoupled - meaning that powers now decide how long they should root the character for, not the animation
      • This greatly increases our flexibility in making adjustments to power timing, animations, and rooting, and also fixes various issues surrounding animation cancelling
    • The following powers will now never root during their activation:
      • Ally-targeting abilities that do not hit enemies (eg: Healing Aura, but not Twilight Grasp)
      • Self-only abilities that do not hit enemies (eg: Build Up, but not Soul Drain)
      • Scaling auras which do not damage enemies (eg: Invincibility, Beta Decay)
    • The following powers will still root during their activation (and will do so more reliably):
      • Any power that applies any kind of effect to enemies (this includes attacks as well as damage auras), apart from those mentioned above
      • All powers that summon other entities
      • All interruptible powers (snipes/assassinations/etc) will now root for their uninterruptible window
    • Weapon redraw should no longer cancel attack animations
    • In addition, many powers with excessively long cast times have been sped up (listed below)

     Stalker Crit Consistency Pass

    New Story Arc: The Graveyard Shift (Hero, Level 20-29)

    FBSA NetOps Agent Watkins has set up a small command station in North Steel Canyon, as an optimal location to investigate... something. Being somewhat dodgy about his assignment, he has constantly referred heroes to Positron first, to establish a reputation. The tasks that Agent Watkins has for you are no small feats, and involve the clean-up of one of the city's most exciting showdowns. Heroes 20 and above should seek him out, and bring plenty of club soda to wash out any stains.

    • Contact: Agent Watkins, Steel Canyon
      • Listed in Ouroboros under Champion (Level 25-29) > The Graveyard Shift (27.01)
    • This arc features new maps, new environments, the return of the Vahzilok Wasting Disease (it missed you), interaction with the alignment system, an actual investigation with clues and interviews, new badges, three alternate endings depending on the choices you make in earlier missions and... dubstep
    • The Vahzilok enemy group has also been expanded with a wider level range with some additional tweaks for the higher levels
    • This story arc currently awards 20 merits for completion, and an additional 20 merits for the first completion
      • These values will be adjusted in a future update to line up with other content when we have enough data to calculate the average playtime for this arc





    New Story Arc: The Freakish Lab of Dr. Vahzilok (Villain, Level 30-39)

    A notorious and well-admired sociopath of the Rogue Isles has put out a straight-forward distress call through the Broker network, asking individuals of highly dubious moral constitution to save her neck in the name of Science. Doc Buzzsaw is being stalked by a notable ne'er-do-well and the price on her head is significantly less than the value of preserving it. Villains of level 30 and beyond should seek her out in Sharkhead Isle, in the usual place, and relief will wash over you after the discovery that her attachment to bank accounts has disappeared in the face of her mortality, as an added bonus.

    • Contact: Doc Buzzsaw, Sharkhead Isle
      • Listed in Ouroboros under Criminal (Level 35-39) > The Freakish Lab of Dr. Vahzilok (27.02)

      • Default
      • Ninja
      • Beast
      • Slide
    • This stance will apply to your character at all times, unless you activate a toggle with its own stance (e.g. Beast Run)
      • As this stance is controlled by power customisation, you can select a different stance for each costume
    • A new non-stance version of Ninja Run is available from P2W:
      • Inherent_AthleticRun.png.7b69ff39f84cadbbd7e613d65a27af3e.png Athletic Run

    Powerset Revamp: Energy Melee

    Energy Melee has received a series of changes aimed at improving the performance of the set. Total Focus now acts as an opener for three different Energy Focus combos, including a Total Focus > Energy Transfer combo which provides fast, potent single target damage. Stun has been reworked into Power Crash, a cone attack, in order to provide a small amount of additional AoE capability to the set.

      • If you previously had Stun in your build, you'll now have Power Crash
      • Stalkers only:
        • This power has a 16s recharge (instead of a 9s recharge for other ATs), with proportional damage and endurance cost increases per the standard damage formulas
        • As Stalkers do not have Whirling Hands, they rely entirely on Power Crash for AoE damage

        • Energy Focus expires after 15 seconds
      • Stalkers / Scrappers only:
        • This power only crits for 28% additional damage, but when it crits, it will also generate a backup Energy Store that will re-activate Energy Focus after the current Energy Focus is used or expires (essentially it provides two stacks of Energy Focus)
    • PowerPunch_EnergyTransfer.png.28fb635ca16499cd48a65ad885598dde.png Energy Transfer
      • Energy Transfer self damage is now 10% of base max HP for all ATs, and no longer costs any endurance

    Powerset Revamp: Titan Weapons

    Titan Weapons was released less than a year before the game shut down, and never had the opportunity for much follow-up work. The set suffers from two problems. Firstly, the mechanics of the set make the set difficult to get started with. Secondly, when fully built, Titan Weapons massively overperforms compared to other melee set in almost every metric.


    We've gone ahead and removed the arbitrary bonus damage the set has (bringing it in line with the standard damage formulas) in order to reign in the maximum performance bar the set can hit, whilst also refining the Momentum mechanic and redraw animations in order to reduce the clunkiness of the set.


    Set Changes

    • Removed arbitrary bonus damage from all attacks (roughly 8-10%)
    • Now has the same redraw rules as Katana, and will only play an interruptible draw animation under the following conditions:
      • Out of combat
      • Out of range from the target
      • Power still has not recharged
    • Whilst Momentum is active, all Titan Weapons attacks will:
      • Recharge 25% faster, with proportional damage and endurance cost reduction per the standard damage formulas
      • Have an additional 25% endurance cost reduction
    • Momentum is now granted even if the attack misses all targets

    Power Changes

    • TitanWeapons_SweepingStrike.png.7187af0f67494b0cc1d679c73d6c7b98.png Titan Sweep
      • Fast version cast time increased from 1s to 1.1s
    • TitanWeapons_FollowThrough.png.4c6c1151542b7f406dce2cb181751f1e.png Follow Through
      • Cast time increased from 1s to 1.1s

      • Cast time reduced from 1.96s to 1.67s

      • No longer inflicts additional damage over time

      • Damage decreased accordingly (per the standard damage formulas)
      • Fast version cast time shortened from 1.5s to 1.37s


    Powerset Revamp: Trick Arrow

    Trick Arrow has suffered with performance issues for a long time, primarily due to the strength of the debuffs against higher level enemies, but also due to redundancy between powers in the set. We've made a comprehensive suite of improvements, impacting almost every power in the set.

        • Resistance against End Drain and Recovery Debuffs
        • Protection against status effects and knock back


    Pool Powerset Revamp: Teleportation

    Teleportation has been considered one of the least desirable pools for a while (outside of specific uses, like Stone Armor) due to the wide availability of other travel options. In order to make the set more appealing, we've added two new powers with new mechanics. Combat Teleport emulates the feeling of Speed of Sound's Jaunt to quickly traverse the battlefield without the endurance cost burden of an active travel power, whilst Fold Space introduces a new way to play in melee - bring the enemies to you, instead of going to them!


    To make room for these, Recall Friend and Teleport Foe have been combined into one power and Long Range Teleport has been removed from the set and is now an unlockable Accolade power.


    Power Changes

    • Teleportation_RecallTeleport.png.6f11238cb1e9a8151d5bd2adc8cf2886.png Teleport Target (Replaces Recall Friend)

      • The range of this power can be enhanced, but it cannot be buffed or debuffed by set bonuses or other powers
      • This power can be activated up to 3 times in a row before it triggers a cooldown
      • This power grants a small ToHit buff to your next attack
      • If you previously had Teleport Foe, you'll now have Combat Teleport
    • Teleportation_Teleport.png.eeeec095e2005a7fc7b5a36a012dce5c.png Teleport

        • In PvP, using teleport 3 times within a 30 second window will trigger No Phase

      • Now functions the same as Teleport Target, and has a new icon to match (previously this power mirrored Recall Friend)
    • 810640279_UmbralBlast_StarlessStep(1).png.5dd7b402c7466d549b153ce54e1d50a3.png Umbral Blast > Starless Step

    Blaster Secondary Revamp

    After the game shut down, several new Blaster secondary sets were developed (e.g. Tactical Arrow, Atomic Manipulation, Plant Manipulation), but these sets were generally quite overtuned in the crowd control department, whilst also lacking in incentives to get into melee range - both of these factors contributed towards the sets being a tad too safe.


    Additionally, most of the legacy sets received some changes in the i24 beta just before the game shut down that were never really followed up on. This ended up with several sets (e.g. Ice Manipulation, Electrical Manipulation, Energy Manipulation) being slight underperformers, especially compared to the new sets.


    This round of changes aims to level the playing field for Blaster secondary sets, both towards each other and towards dedicated crowd control ATs. In general, you'll see many of the underperforming sets receive several buffs (both in terms of damage and survivability), alongside some reductions in the crowd control capabilities of most sets.


    Tactical Arrow

    • tacticalarrow_immobilize.png.4f665f950503df01b11ab2f44f95f903.png Electrified Net Arrow

    P2W Powers

    • Flight_JumpJet.png.17841a0a05af5fff6edb940189305baf.png Jump Pack / Inherent_SteamJump.png.742e4f396848fba1f532625bf741980b.png Steam Jump
      • These powers were intended to have a 30s lockout timer, but it never worked properly (on initial release, they had a 5 minute cooldown)
        • They sometimes were locked out permanently until you zoned, and sometimes could be used back-to-back
        • They also detoggled Intangibility powers on expiration, and were locked out for 2 minutes by NoPhase, despite having nothing to do with intangibility
      • The not-working lockout timer has been removed, and instead these powers now share a 30 second cooldown (which fixes all the above issues) using the new shared cooldown code tech developed for the accolades above
    • Temporary_Mayhem_SelfResurrect.png.ed117531230a8937d4cbb614572b5e24.png Renewal of Light (P2W) / Veteran_SelfRez.png.1a4056824c283ea8d7775d14aecc14cc.png Return to Battle
      • These powers are no longer mutually exclusive - you can own both at the same time
      • Instead they share a cooldown
      • The Winter Event version of Renewal of Light has been renamed to Light of Renewal to prevent confusion with the P2W version


    Travel Updates: Base Teleportation, Long Range Teleporter Accolade, Special TP Powers

    A strange energy spike in Galaxy City reached the old Supergroup Portal and caused a cascade overload in the entire Teleport network. Most of the damage has been repaired, but destinations in temporal flux have been lost to the past. DJ Zero was called in to establish the new portal in his Pocket Dimension, and as a courtesy he also set up portals in two other dimensions: Praetoria and The Shadow Shard. Vanguard has requested further restrictions of traffic near Paragon Heights while their investigation is in progress.


    More information about these changes can be found in the Zone Travel Updates thread. Please also use the Zone Travel thread for any feedback related to these changes.


    New Accolade Power: Long Range Teleporter

    • LongRangeTeleporter.png.4970195b31b9e2546510622430b293f0.png Long Range Teleporter
      • The Pocket D VIP Pass power has been significantly improved and is now the Long Range Teleporter
        • If you previously owned Pocket D VIP Pass, you will now have the Long Range Teleporter with Pocket D unlocked as a destination
      • Long Range Teleporter is unlocked by the Passport Accolade, which can be acquired by earning:
        • An exploration accolade in any zone with a Base Portal (see the "Complete Base Portal List" below for reference), or
        • The Pocket D VIP Gold Club Member badge (for spending 1 hour in Pocket D)
      • Long Range Teleporter can be used once to teleport you to any zone that you have unlocked
        • Collecting any exploration badge in a zone will unlock it as a destination
        • Pocket D can also be unlocked with the Pocket D VIP Gold Club Member badge
        • Only zones with base portals can be unlocked (see the "Complete Base Portal List" below for reference)
      • Long Range Teleporter has a 2s activation time and a 10 minute cooldown
        • Activation time is longer in PvP
      • If you activate Long Range Teleporter and do not use it, the cooldown will begin counting down but the power can still be used again until you zone
        • This is indicated by the red ring around the power
        • Note that even if you zone without using LRT, it will still go on cooldown - it's not possible to determine if you zone with the power or not
        • Examples:

          • You activate the power. Spend 60 seconds looking at the options before clicking one. When you zone, the power will be on cooldown with 9 minutes left.

          • You activate the power. You don't zone. Two minutes later you activate it again and zone. The power will go on cooldown with 10 minutes left (each activation resets the timer).

          • You activate the power, then keep running around the zone for five minutes. Then you use a monorail or whatever to go to a different zone. The power will go on cooldown with 5 minutes left

      • Long Range Teleporter allows you to use /enterbasefrompasscode to enter any base


    Fast Travel Menu

    • By acquiring Long Range Teleporter or any of the powers in this menu you will unlock the Fast Travel macro accolade (similar to the Architect Commlink)
      • This lists the various unlockable zone teleportation powers so they don't take up space in your power trays
    • Clicking the 281168755_TeleporterPopmenu.png.65fc58e8b615ae49d7ac718fc1e1c38e.png Fast Travel icon will open up this menu
      • Powers that are on cooldown or that you do not own (or have no charges of) will be greyed out
      • Portal powers (e.g. Ouro) will be automatically summoned at your feet so you don't need to click again
      • Each option has a keyboard shortcut whilst the menu is open (the white letters)
    • You can also use /popmenu FastTravel in a keybind, macro, etc to access this menu
      • e.g. /bind t popmenu FastTravel will open this menu when you press T, so pressing "T, O" will quickly open an Ouro portal at your feet


    Base Teleportation

    • The internal command /enterbasefrompasscode has been fixed, and now requires that you be able to enter a base normally before using it (this was always the intended functionality of the command), which includes any of the following:
      • Being within 45 feet of a base portal (including base portals summoned by the new powers detailed below)
      • Being anywhere inside a Supergroup base
      • Using Long Range Teleporter, Base Transporter (P2W) or Monitor Duty Teleporter (Day Job)
        • The command remains available to use until you move 20 feet from the location you used the power, or until you activate another power
    • The base teleportation network now includes many new zones, including zones in Praetoria and The Shadow Shard
      • In total, 16 new base portals have been added, and 7 new base beacons have been added (see the complete list below)
      • The only zones not included are time travel zones (e.g. Cimerora), a few small bases (e.g. The Midnighter Club), Hamidon zones, and layers of other zones (e.g. Underground Imperial City)
      • This same list of zones is also used by Long Range Teleporter
      • New powers which summon portable base portals have also been added (see below for more info)
    • Base teleportation is now more streamlined and consistent
      • Every zone with a base beacon now also has a base portal
      • Base beacons now drop you at the base portal instead of at a random location (Long Range Teleporter also uses the base portal locations)
      • Several base portals have been moved to more convenient locations
      • Base portals no longer have collision, so you can't get stuck inside them
      • The Base Transporter P2W power has had its cooldown reduced from 30 minutes to 10 minutes, and Long Range Teleporter can also take you to your base
    • Base portals in the Rogue Isles are now red, and the new Praetorian base portals are gold

      • Available from P2W for 10 million influence
      • Summons a base portal on the ground that lasts for 2 minutes (even after you leave the zone)
      • 10 minute cooldown, unaffected by global recharge buffs
      • Cannot be used in Tutorial or PvP Zones
      • Summoning a base portal will remove other summoned portals within a 15ft radius (to avoid blocking contacts, doors, etc)

    Other Teleportation Powers

    • screenshot_200919-20-21-01_crop.png.8968c65792e978a90f2eba5701cbf5a9.png Base Transporter (P2W Power)

      • Activation time reduced from 17s to 2s in PvE (still longer in PvP)
      • If you activate Base Transporter and do not use it, the cooldown will begin counting down but the power can still be used again until you zone
        • This uses the same behaviour listed above under Long Range Teleporter
    • Teleportation_Ouroboros.png.ecf90b49828b085eab524f14f6cf951c.png Ouroboros Portal
      • Can now be summoned and entered from level 1, rather than level 14, and is much simpler to earn (see the badges section for more info)

      • Now lasts 2 minutes instead of 5 minutes, but will remain in place after you leave the zone
      • Can no longer be used inside mission maps while the "No Temporary Powers" flag is enabled (e.g. during Master Of attempts)
      • Summoning an Ouroboros Portal will now remove other summoned Ouroboros Portals within a 15ft radius (to avoid blocking contacts, doors, etc)
      • Can now be used in Ouroboros
        • This was a side-effect of allowing base portals to be summoned in Ouroboros, and any Ouroboros portals summoned within 15ft of the static Ouroboros portals in Ouroboros will be instantly destroyed (Supergroup portals are not affected by this)
    • Inherent_TeamTransport_New.png.2eada855fdeed8602e3bc48a1d54e1d5.png Team Transporter (P2W Power)

      • These powers had numerous bugs, and teleporting directly to the auction house isn't that useful with the /ah command available

    Day Job Teleportation Powers

    • These Day Job powers have been shuffled around
      • The Monitor Duty Teleporter (teleport self to base) power can now be earned by logging off near a base portal, and no longer requires the Rapid Response Member Accolade
        • The Monitor Duty badge speeds up earning charges of this power, in line with other basic day job powers
      • Rapid Response Portal is a new day job power which summons a base portal, and is now earned by logging off near a base portal with the Rapid Response Member Accolade
        • With the Accolade you will earn charges of Monitor Duty Teleporter and the Rapid Response Portal
      • The old Monitor Duty day job (which a long time ago granted a Prestige buff, but now grants a Brain Storm bonus) was previously awarded for logging off near a base portal, but is now earned by the Day Trader (Wentworth's) and Marketeer (Black Market) day jobs
        • The old Day Trader / Marketeer Teleporter day job powers can no longer be earned

      • This power has been renamed from Base Teleporter to Monitor Duty Teleporter (to match the badge it is connected to)
      • Recharge time reduced from 600s to 30s (this would be 0s, but we wanted to prevent accidental double usage as this power has limited charges
      • Activation time reduced from 17s to 2s in PvE (still longer in PvP)
    • DayJob_BasePortal.png.1a5fd02dfea47be7e7b7f18462dfd923.png Rapid Response Portal
      • Summons a base portal on the ground that lasts for 2 minutes (even after you leave the zone)
      • 90 second cooldown
      • Cannot be used in Tutorial or PvP Zones
      • Summoning a base portal will remove other summoned portals within a 15ft radius (to avoid blocking contacts, doors, etc)

    TUNNEL Network

    • The Hero and Villain TUNNEL networks have been merged together
      • Vigilantes and Rogues will now see both Hero and Villain zones in the list
      • Heroes, Villains, Vigilantes, Rogues and Praetorians can now all use the same portals in co-op zones
    • TUNNEL can now be used by Praetorians
      • Praetorians will only be able to access zones in Praetoria

    Free Fire Zone (PvP) Helicopter Line

    • All helicopters to and from PvP zones are now connected (including new helicopters in Siren's Call near the hero hospital and in Peregrine Island near the arena)
    • You can also use it to travel between the connected PVE zones, but only those that match your current alignment

    More information about these changes can be found in the Zone Travel Updates thread. Please also use the Zone Travel thread for any feedback related to these changes.



    Enhancement Upgrade Button

    • Added an Upgrade button to the bottom left of the Enhancements screen
    • This will upgrade all your store-buyable enhancements to +3 of your level, to a maximum of level 50
    • It costs the same as purchasing the enhancements from a store, and it will not change the enhancement type; a low level DO will be upgraded to a high level DO, not a SO.
    • Combined enhancements will be replaced following the new Enhancement Combining rules described below

      • This means a level 48++ SO will be "upgraded" to level 50 and charge full price



    Enhancement Combining

    • Combining enhancements now increases their level directly, instead of a combined level enhancement (ie: 33 instead of 32+1)
      • This means you can, through combination, get Titan, Hydra and Hamidon enhancements all the way to level 53
      • Existing combined enhancements are not affected, but another combination will increase their level and remove the combinations

    Acquiring Enhancements

    • Single Origin enhancements can now be purchased from vendors at levels 5, 10, 15 and 20
      • This is meant to equalize the availability of those enhancements at low levels, which currently are mostly obtained through farming the Death From Below trial
    • DOs can now be purchased from vendors at levels 5 and 10, just for parity
    • TOs have been removed from regular vendors but can still be purchased from the Supergroup Base enhancements vendor if you're into that kind of thing
    • Story Arc rewards that used to drop TOs and DOs will now always drop a SO of your origin

      • TOs and DOs will still drop from other sources as vendor trash

    • The tutorial zones now reward the player with Talisman of the Initiate (Damage) SOs instead of Damage TOs

    • Introductory tasks from City Hall reward the player with Damage SOs of their origin instead of Damage TOs

    • The Shop Keeper and Smuggler day jobs will now always award a SO

    AoE Enhancement Set Categories

    • "Targeted AoE Damage" sets are now "Ranged AoE Damage" sets
    • "PBAoE Damage" sets are now "Melee AoE Damage" sets
    • These rules were already almost universally followed - no changes to which powers can accept which sets have been made at this time

    Yin's Market

    • Yin's Talisman enhancements can now be used by characters of all origins and are available at level 5, 10, 15 and 20
      • They are also cheaper than SOs of the same level to purchase from Mr. Yin, although they will cost the same to upgrade
    • Yin's Talisman enhancements now use a fancy golden border
    • There are currently no plans to make those enhancements available to Villains or Praetorians, as the store unlock is a reward for the Faultline arcs
      • Those characters can purchase the enhancements from the auction house, receive them via character email, or store and retrieve them from Supergroup storage if they wish

    Enhanced Gamepad Support

    • Added support for using the left and right triggers as modifiers with XInput
    • Added several convenience aliases for usage with keybinding

    Virtual Mouse Mode

    • Implemented virtual mouse mode for XInput gamepads
    • Holding both triggers now enters virtual mouse mode:
      • The left stick moves the mouse pointer. This is analog, with a small amount of acceleration past halfway pressed
      • Moving the right stick up and down moves the mouse wheel
      • Moving the right stick left and right passes through to your normal binds, allowing you to turn the camera
      • The A/Cross button is the left mouse button
      • The B/Circle button is the right mouse button
      • The Y/Triangle button is the middle mouse button
      • The d-pad will snap your mouse pointer around the screen
      • The X/Square button will snap your mouse pointer to the center of the screen

    New Gamepad-Related Slash Commands

    • /extra_modifiers [mod1] [mod2] [mod3] [mod4]
      • Allows setting up to four extra modifiers
        • These (currently) only work when no other modifier is pressed
      • Recommended for XInput users is /extra_modifiers LBumper RBumper
    • /controller_modifiers <first> <second>
      • Allows setting two controller buttons as modifiers
      • On non-XInput devices, when both of these are pressed together, the controller will enter virtual mouse mode
      • The arguments are the button numbers to use (from 1-24)
      • Recommended for XInput users is /controller_modifiers 7 8
        • (the two triggers, since these are currently hard-coded as virtual mouse mode on XInput)
    • /controller_vmouse <LMB> <RMB> [MMB] [Snap]
      • Configures virtual mouse mode buttons
      • By default, button 1 is the LMB and button 2 is the RMB - the other two are unset
      • Recommended for XInput users is /controller_vmouse 1 2 4 3
        • (which will give you the configuration from the above patch notes)
    • Further explanation on the use of additional modifiers from @Telephone:

    On the live shards, there are three pre-defined 'modifiers' (Shift, Ctrl, and Alt). These can be used in any keybind, etc.


    The patch allows you to define up to six additional modifiers: two 'Controller Modifiers' and up to four 'Extra Modifiers'. The 'Controller Modifiers' are special, as pressing them together enables Virtual Mouse Mode. They do work as bindable modifiers just like the pre-existing three.


    The up-to-four 'Extra Modifiers' are just additional inputs (either keys or buttons) that can be treated as modifiers when no other modifier is pressed. So for example, you could do /extra_modifiers LBumper RBumper to make the bumpers modifiers on your XInput gamepad. You could then use (for example) LBumper+Joy1 as a /bind (but also still be able to use LTrigger+LBumper as a separate bind).


    The 'Extra Modifiers' aren't limited to just gamepad buttons, however! If you want, you can bind any key on your keyboard as one (but note that due to some things that still need refactoring, you can't bind a specific Shift, Ctrl, or Alt key on your keyboard yet).


    Not noted in the patch notes is that we added a number of other convenience aliases which you may have already noticed (e.g. LTrigger, LeftTrigger, RightBumper, StartButton, AButton, and so on).


    Map Changes

    • Minor tweaks and additions to Steel Canyon, Skyway City and Faultline for the new story arcs (contacts, mission locations, etc)

    Pocket D

    • War Witch has been relocated to the ground floor of the club, just underneath her previous location
      • This change was made in order to minimize disruption to any roleplay going on in the upper floor
    • An entrance to Recluse's Victory has been added to the Pocket D arena
      • DJ Zero doesn't approve of fighting, so if you use this exit, there's no way back to the club from Recluse's Victory - you're on your own

    Kings Row

    Under advisement from Vanguard, the Paragon City Council has demolished and sealed shut the former tunnel connecting Kings Row to Galaxy City and reinforced that section of the War Wall to protect the citizens of Kings Row after the strange energy spike that destroyed the teleporter network. The Kelly Graham Foundation has commissioned a new statue of Galaxy Girl to stand in the former location of the Hazard Zone gate, and a small ceremony was held with the former residents of Paragon Heights.

    • The tunnel that previously connected Kings Row to Galaxy City has been sealed
      • A new statue of Galaxy Girl stands where the tunnel used to be
      • This also fixes this area of the War Wall not turning off during Rikti Invasions
    • Minor updates and additions for the new story arcs

    Independence Port

    • Minor updates and additions for the new story arcs
    • The power lines above Admiral Sutter's helicopter have been moved

    • Can now be accessed at any level through an Ouroboros Portal (rather than 14+)


    • Can now be accessed at any level (rather than 35+) as long as you can access The Midnighter Club

    Echo: Galaxy City

    • Closed the Perez Park gate
    • Added an Echo transporter (was previously using the monorail as an exit)

    City Map

    • The old city cartographer has... retired
    • After 15 years, Brickstown is now the correct shape on the city map



    Other Changes

    • Reduced invite blocking time after quitting a team or league to 5 seconds
    • Restored the classic "pshewwwww" sound when entering the game
    • Halloween salvage vendors (Annah in Croatoa, Granny Beldam in Nerva Archipelago, Acantha in Imperial City) now have icons on the minimap
    • The basic version of Penelope Yin will no longer summon her gigantic pet outside of mission maps
      • This will prevent her from being difficult to talk to in Independence Port
    • Normalized LODInfo hashtable key names
      • This may address or at least rule out some possible causes of the crash upon changing graphics settings that some people are getting
    • Reduced the occurrence of the red ring cursor when choosing a teleport destination
      • It is now possible to teleport to some locations even if the camera loses line of sight to the player
    • /petition no longer requires you to type the subject into the command, you can just type "/petition" on its own to open up the petition window
    • The Tips tab is now visible for all characters regardless of level or dimension of origin
      • The alignment status panel will only appear for Primal Earth characters over level 20
      • This change currently has no use, it's been added to support some upcoming content

    Profanity Filter

    • Several outdated / reclaimed terms have been removed from the profanity filter
    • Several slurs have been added to the profanity filter
    • The profanity and copyright filter is now checked during character creation (this is the same behaviour as live - it just wasn't activated)

    New Command: /interact

    • Allows you to interact with objects in front of you as if they had been clicked
    • This includes contacts, doors, ouroboros portals, mission objectives, etc

    Command: /powexec_location

    • Several improvements have been made to /powexec_location to make it more reliable when used with teleportation powers
      • Directional and terrain-following mode are more robust and less likely to stop short of the full distance
      • Target mode no longer requires line of sight to the target, so long as the target is in a location that is a valid teleport destination
      • Target mode no longer tries to occupy the same space as the target - instead it selects a location as close as possible to the target without being pushed away

    Command: /window_scale

    • The /window_scale command takes the following new windows:
      • contactdialog to independently resize the window where contact give you mission descriptions and such
      • missionsearch to independently scale the AE mission search window
      • missionmaker to independently scale the AE editor window
    • Example usage: /windowscale contactdialog 2 to make it twice as big (accepts anything from 0.65 to 2)


    • The "LockedOption" structure in popmenus now has three extra fields:
      • Icon - adds a small image to the left side of the text
      • PowerOwned - unlocks the entry if this power is owned, regardless of state
      • PowerReady - unlocks the entry if this power is owned, enabled, and recharged

    Mission: The Strongest Bond

    This is the fourth and final mission given by the contact Ward, in the Night Ward, notorious for unrecoverable team wipe situations due to the location of the in-mission hospital

    • Gurneys moved to roof of mansion in order to buy you some time
    • An Acolyte of Repulsion wards the roof with a Dispersion Bubble and a Force Bubble, but their power is so strenuous and difficult to maintain that they are incapable of doing anything else
    • The Acolytes of Soothing, fragile but helpful, stand ready to assist with sweet nothings of periodic minor healing, but their devotion to your wellbeing renders them incapable of anything else
    • In the spirit of the original encounter, enemies are designed to chase you - this has not changed, we have simply provided the means for you to tip the scales in your favour

    • You should no longer see erroneous messages about adding slots to certain temporary powers while levelling up
    • The double Duray fight in the Sutter Task Force should no longer fail to complete properly

      • Many powers had incorrect crit values or would not crit in PvE, PvP or both
    • Sentinel > Vulnerability: Will no longer spam floating messages when triggered
    • Dark Miasma > Tar Patch: Was recently flagged to ignore resistance - this was not intended and has been fixed
    • Enhancements > Gaussian's Synchronized Fire Control:
      • All enhancements in this set should now require level 17 to be slotted, instead of half the set being available at level 7
      • The set is documented to be 20-50 level range
    • Enhancements > Performance Shifter:

      • All enhancements in this set should now require level 17 to be slotted, instead of half the set being available at level 7

      • The set is documented to be 20-50 level range

    • All powers that provide +Stength buffs (e.g. Power Boost, Power Up) are now set to ignore strength buffs

      • This resolves unintended issues of chained +strength buffs applying buffs multiplicatively, instead of additively

    • Temporary Powers > Ethereal Shift: This power no longer ignores NoPhase

    • Dark Miasma | Dark Affinity > Twilight Grasp: Fixed a bug where tintable versions of this power would not play the healing sound or FX

    • Blaster > Fire Blast > Blazing Bolt: The slow version of this power was giving the player a 100% range buff instead of 50% - This has now been corrected

    • Scrapper | Brute > Energy Aura > Energy Cloak > Fixed a bug where the stealth was not suppressing in combat, preventing the taunt aura from working

    • Blaster > Assault Rifle > Sniper Rifle > Text description no longer claims there is a bonus when using Targeting Drone. This bonus was depreciated long ago with the Devices changes

    • Fixed a bug with certain powers which provided a stacking buff that was meant to be replaced (e.g. Invincibility)

    • Sentinel > Dark Armor > Obscure Sustenance: Buffs from this power should now ignore enemy level differences

    • Tanker > Stone Armor > Earth's Embrace: Heal in this power has been flagged to ignore resistances, as all other Armor Set self-heals

  4. Hello Everyone!
    I'm working with OVH who hosts the dedicated server for Victory.  There are some hardware issues that they are working on that requires the server to be rebooted a few times.  I've opted to keep the server down while this is happening to avoid further issues.  There is no ETA on when everything is expected to come back up but I'm working with OVH directly on this.  When we come back up I will also be updating Victory to Issue 27: Second Chances, Page 1, along with the winter event.

  5. We run a very close copy of the Homecoming code base, we are a VERY low population server, though when we started we did cruise in the high 20-30 players.  We actually launched a couple of days before Homecoming but since I was running the server off of a single dedicated box I didn't advertise the way they were able to so, we never really caught on.  We're as close to Vanilla as you can get with i26's code base, we don't run any crazy XP rates, nor do we offer free level 50s like some of the other servers out there.  We're just a few ex-Victory players who wanted somewhere safe to call home.

  6. Costume Editor Update

    Auras have been separated into two slots: Auras and Path Auras
    Boots and gloves now have an asymmetrical toggle, which can be toggled on to allow separate left and right glove and boot selection
    Not every set of gloves and boots are available in asymmetrical mode, more will be added in future updates
    All sets of gloves and boots remain available in symmetrical mode

    New Support Powerset: Electrical Affinity

    You are able to control and manipulate electricity to aid your allies and weaken your enemies. Some Electrical Affinity powers build Static, which increases the number of targets your Circuit powers can chain to.

    The set has been built around chaining powers and a stacking / combo system that's similar to those found in many of the more modern melee and ranged damage sets, with a focus on wide variety of buffs for the whole team as well as damage and endurance debuffs for your enemies.
    Electrical Affinity also introduces and makes use of a brand new mechanic which allows powers to dynamically change the number of targets they can hit - in this case, the four Circuit powers hit more targets for every stack of Static that you currently have.
    Electrical Affinity is available for Defenders, Corruptors, Controllers and Masterminds.
    Electrical Affinity has both a Hero (blue) and Villain (red) default theme available for all ATs, along with the light and dark customisation themes.

    New Origin Power Pool: Experimentation

    "Experimentation gives you access to poisonous ranged attacks as well as powers that boost your attack power and the survivability of your allies. This pool's travel power is Speed of Sound. While active, this power allows you to run at incredible speeds and also gives you access to the Jaunt power. Jaunt allows you to quickly teleport long distances once every so often."

    As a reminder: Only one Origin Pool (Sorcery, Force of Will, Experimentation) can be active in a build at any one time.


    Improved the loading time and stability of Architect missions with a large number of custom critters.
    Mac OS X 10.15, codename Catalina, removes support for 32-bit applications. We have been hard at work for the last couple of months upgrading the client and all server components to 64-bit, while @Manga has been working on a new version of Island Rum that uses the 64-bit version of Wine to run the game in Mac and Linux. This patch , fingers crossed, is the culmination of those efforts.
    Mac users experience issues 
    When launching Tequila, you will now be presented with three options:
    Victory 32-Bit: new 32-bit client based on modern development tools; backwards compatible with Windows XP.
    Victory 64-Bit: new 64-client, which is required for players running Mac OS Catalina and recommended for players running modern operating systems; players on older operating systems may need to install the Visual Studio Redistributable Package from Microsoft in order to launch this client.
    If you have a Mac, even if you're not currently running Catalina, please contact check out this post if you have problems with Island Rum. Since Mac users are a minority, we are going to need a lot of feedback to make sure things run smoothly for everyone.
    Linux users can still run the 32-bit client under Wine so they're less of a concern, but if you want to test the 64-bit client, be aware that it is dynamically linked and you will need to install the Visual Studio 64-bit runtime. The 32-bit version is statically linked to maximize compatibility.
    Because of the extensive code changes to both server and client with this patch, none of the data changes currently on the Beta servers are being published until we ensure that this patch is stable and will not require a rollback.
    Ambassador Kuhr'Rekt no longer requires the Native badge, which is unavailable to former Praetorians.
    The contact "Max" in Dark Astoria will no longer be stuck unable to give you any missions if you finished his arc using Ouroboros before running Dark Astoria normally. He should always, at the very least, offer the mission that introduces Praetor Duncan.
    Sentinels will now receive the Power of Scirocco clickie in the Barracuda SF.
    Fixed an issue that broke Windows XP compatibility with the 32-bit Client.
    Fix detection of more than 4GB of physical memory on 64-bit platforms.
    Be more aggressive about capturing the mouse pointer while in mouselook and camrotate mode.
    Fix the magical shrinking window on 64-bit; Windows Vista and newer in 64-bit mode report system metrics for window frame size differently.
    The 32-bit client should now work properly on Windows XP and old versions of MacOS; please let us know if you still need the Safe Mode client.
    Native High DPI Scaling mode. The game will now use the Windows UI Scaling setting for the monitor it is currently played on. You can disable Automatic UI Scaling from the Options (under the Windows tab) and change it manually. This slider can scale a lot more things than the old Window Scaling setting, which is still available via slash commands for individual windows.
    Added option under Windows tab to independently change the size of the names above players' / NPCs' heads.
    Added the ability to select Borderless Fullscreen mode in any monitor connected to the system.
    Corrected an issue that caused some billboards in the game to have swapped the colors blue and red in the 64-bit client.
    Fixed a crash on certain missions that spammed LOTS of chat bubbles (Confront Veles, Investigate Harvan's Lab).
    You can now move stacks of salvage out of the vault again.
    The background color for Damage Resistance enhancements is now a slightly redder hue, to distinguish them from Defense enhancements.


    Added a roleplaying tag which will flag yourself as currently RPing.
    This will change your character name to appear in purple as well as adding a "Roleplaying" title.
    Use /roleplaying to toggle the flag on and off, or use the dropdown in the helper window (H by default).
    Increased Supergroup membership limit from 150 to 300.


    Minor adjustments to particle physics in an attempt to prevent or mitigate a crash happening deep in the internals of the PhysX library. As we have not yet been able to reproduce the crash under controlled circumstances, this may or may not have an effect.


    The game no longer uses DirectInput due to incompatibility with Mac OS Catalina, and now uses standard Windows messages for input. For the most part you should not notice any difference, although players with international keyboard distributions may have issues entering non-English and special symbols.
    DirectInput Joystick support has been replaced replaced it with new Game Controller support.
    Instead of a simple "Joystick Input Enabled" toggle, you can select which device to use from the options menu.
    Native support for XBox controllers as well as other XInput compatible controllers. This is not available on Windows XP.
    Controller vibration support for XInput devices:
    Damage received
    Environmental effects
    Turn on vibration on the options menu, or you can choose to only enable vibration effects from one of the above sources.
    Raw Input handles non-XInput devices and replaces DirectInput.
    All DirectInput-compatible devices should be supported, including traditional joysticks.
    Fixed ability for the game to distinguish between the right shift and left shift keys
    Fixed Num Lock and Pause/Break being swapped in key bindings (Windows itself has this backwards for some reason)
    Added special handling to make bindings with Shift+Number Pad keys work (more fun legacy MS-DOS leftovers)
    Controllers in rawinput mode will now properly report D-Pad directions
    Added button debounce for rawinput mode to handle hardware with noisy button switches
    Reduced analog stick dead zone for XBox controllers in native (XInput) mode


    PhysX simulation is no longer frame-locked to the game. It now runs asynchronously, so if PhysX is processing too slowly to keep up, it should not slow down your framerate, but instead use larger simulation steps to compensate.
    If it falls too far behind, the number of PhysX objects in the scene will be reduced by removing the oldest objects.
    When particle physics quality is set to "High" or above, mutual collision is enabled between all PhysX objects. This means that junk from Propel will stack up instead of passing through other debris, bullet casings, trash, and leaves will bounce off of and can even come to rest on it, etc. These objects also affect each other, so pushing leaves around causes other nearby objects to move (depending on their mass).
    When physics quality is set to "Very High", the simulation step resolution is increased by 50%, and the step rate is allowed to scale up to 120fps rather than being capped at 60fps.
    Large objects (i.e. gravity control) will always interact with all other objects, even on the Low physics setting.

    User Interface

    A fresh install now defaults to borderless windowed mode on the primary monitor, for maximum compatibility with monitors that don't support such tiny (and petty) resolutions as 800x600 or 1024x768.
    Pressing Alt+Enter to switch to fullscreen mode now always switches to the desktop resolution. Non-native fullscreen resolutions can still be selected from the options menu.
    Pressing Alt+Enter to switch out of fullscreen back to windowed mode no longer results in a huge window that is partially offscreen.
    Running the game with -safemode to reset the graphics options now resets them to windowed mode, rather than 800x600 fullscreen which is not very safe.
    When in borderless windowed mode, the game will drop topmost status on loading screens and when waiting for network connections, to ensure that it's possible to Alt+Tab out to other windows while the client is otherwise busy.


    Added a new command line parameter: -gfxreset
    This will cause the game to reset all graphics settings and launch the game in windowed mode.
    Added some safety checks to game startup to ensure the game will not try to run borderless or on a monitor that's no longer connected.
    Switched to a different method of hooking the Print Screen key. This should fix the issues with using modifier keys in conjunction with it, as well as allow it to pass through to the OS so the traditional "copy to clipboard" functionality works again.
    Resynchronised modifier key state in certain edge cases (mostly involving the numeric keypad) to try and resolve issues of the shift key rarely getting stuck.

    Resolved a longstanding issue that would cause a crash if the game is installed in a folder with a path name longer than around 130 characters
    Fixed several client crashes reported through the Homecoming Crash Handler
    Fixed Adamastor summoning ritual not actually summoning Adamastor
    Fixed a bug with many special encounter enemies failing to telegraph their moves or spamming abilities they should not be using all the time (for example, Marauder spamming Nova Fist without warning)
    Fixed scripting issues in The Magisterium iTrial
    Fixed scripting issues in the Dilemma Diabolique iTrial
    Fixed an issue that caused cutscenes to not play
    Fixed scripting issues with the Propaganda event
    New characters should no longer see a "SILENT" popup upon first login.
    Invention > Build Snow Beast: should no longer show as a PString in mail attachments.

    Characters that crash on the first login after creation and become corrupted will now be cleared out by the dbserver instead of staying in the character list.
    Fixed crash when clicking Accept on the SG Settings interface when no fields where editable.
    Make it somewhat less likely for defeated enemies to be twisted into pretzels:
    Overhaul ragdoll parameters. The spring and dampen settings must have been different in older versions of PhysX, because the ones in NwRagdoll did almost nothing; which is why everything was so limp.
    Fixed joints (for all bones that don't have a spherical or hinge joint with special parameters) are apparently not working correctly, so replace them with a hinge joint that has a very small range of motion.                         
    This is still not perfect. As @Number Six put it, "Ragdoll is still broken, but it's broken in new and different ways."
    Fix enhancement tables not properly displaying % signs (and possibly crashing).
    Switching alignment with a completed mission will no longer abandon it. This was being exploited in order to repeatedly obtain the last mission of a story arc (delivery missions in particular) and obtain the merit rewards for the arc again and again. As a result, the mission will be stuck in your list until you switch to a compatible alignment and are able to call the contact again.
    The five Enhancement Sets from the Lords of Winter Super Pack (Avalanche, Blistering Cold, Entomb, Frozen Blast and Winter's Bite) are no longer incorrectly grouped with their Superior versions in the auction house.

    Fixed the team window showing "On mission map" when a teammate is in their Supergroup Base and vice versa.

    Fixes for many Mapserver crashes unearthed by the new crash handler.
    Various fixes and stability improvements to the client.
    This should allow some users that were previously stuck on the Safe Mode client to now use the new client.
    Fixed a bug that allowed players to inadvertently delete the geometry of entire zones.
    Possibly fixed a bug in certain AMD/ATI video drivers that crash the client when queried for how much video memory they have.

    Fixed bug with Gauntlet not triggering main-hit taunt messages.
    Clockwork Reassembly power should again calculate the chance for each individual spawned Gear, instead of only once at death. Average spawn count over time will not change, but it will be rare to get no Gears out of a defeated boss.

    Advanced Crash Avoidance Technology Implementation

    The mapserver will no longer crash when attempting to transfer a character from one shard to another before logging it in.
    Explanation: the previous patch introduced some internal changes to character data, and those changes are applied when the character logs in. If a character transfer was attempted on a character that had not been logged in, the receiving mapserver detected that the character was missing the new data fields, and triggered a programmer breakpoint in order to warn about the missing data -- which is to say, it crashed. It no longer is so enthusiastic about detecting missing fields on the live servers.
    The Mission Computer and Oracle will no longer crash the mapserver when a player tries to craft at tip mission while in a Task Force.
    Explanation: Tip missions are really contacts, and crafting one adds a contact to your list. While a player is on a Task Force, it can only have one Contact available, and trying to obtain another caused the mapserver to freak out and crash. It has now been taught that it can just refuse to give the character another contact instead.

    Mission Architect

    Stability enhancements for searches of AE missions; should hopefully prevent the crashes that were happening yesterday


    Fixed special enhancement rewards not dropping when exemplared (mostly affected Summer Blockbuster event and DfB)
    Fixed reward flags that were preventing merits and other rewards from dropping in some circumstances
    The reward fixes were applied as a hotfix yesterday, but may not have affected all outdoor zones until this morning's restart
    Base Editor

    Added 676 items to the base editor. You can find them by searching for "New" in the Place Item view.
    The red and black floor grid should now be hidden outside of the base editor.
    Nature > Grass Valley has had its alignment corrected and should now be usable with other floor plate details (e.g. all the other grass).
    Existing bases will not be modified. Simply moving any existing Valleys will update their position.
    The following details have had their selection box fixed:
    Arcane Teleport > Carnival of Light Portal
    Arcane Teleport > Magic Portal
    Arcane Teleport > Summoning Portal
    Arcane Teleport > Summoning Portal (Inactive)
    Tech Teleport > Interdimensional Shard
    Tech Teleport > Black Hole
    Tech Teleport > White Hole
    Tech Teleport > Small Portal
    Bathroom > Bathtub Water
    Added the Nemesis Horse as a base item, with and without FX.
    Fixed Bathtub Water collision bug.
    Renamed "Bathroom" tab to "Bath & Kitchen"
    Added 38 new base items created by @Naomi:

    Peacebringer FX

    Peacebringer customizable FX have been updated in order to actually use the secondary color.
    The glowy eyes have been reined in:
    All buff powers use the same eye glow VFX, so they will no longer stack.
    Attacks still spawn extra glowy eyes when used. This will get fixed someday.
    Conserve Energy will now have glowy eyes.
    The humming noise has been reined in:
    It no longer plays when activating attacks.
    It no longer plays when one VFX expires and transitions to another one.
    Being mezzed with the toggle sheilds on will no longer blow out your speakers.
    Inner Light now only plays it once instead of twice.
    Other stuff:
    White Dwarf Step no longer uses Warshade graphics.
    Quantum Shield's "No Bubble" setting no longer has fuzzy rings.

    Powers: Snipes

    General Changes
    ToHit is no longer required to achieve fast-snipe. Now, combat status determines if snipes are fast or slow, and ToHit buffs increase how much damage fast-snipe inflicts.
    The snipe will be fast if you have attacked or been attacked in the last 8 seconds; this is the same time as Stalker's Hide.
    Note that PvP scale is based only around the PvP damage formula. ToHit buffs and debuffs do not change quick snipe damage in PvP.
    The following fast snipe animations have been synced with their FX, no cast time changes: Moonbeam, Zapp, Sniper Blast, Proton Volley (they all remain at their original 1.33 second duration.)
    Added a new PVP IO Snipe set "Experienced Marksman"; includes proc that will always turn your Snipes into the fast version.
    Blaster/Defender/Corruptor Snipes
    12 second recharge and 14.352 end cost.
    Base 2.28 scale damage in their "quick" form, down from 2.76 scale.
    Every point of ToHit buffing the player has will increase or decrease this damage, up to a cap of 2.76 scale damage with +22% ToHit buff.
    Slow form will do 4.5 scale damage.
    Dominator Snipes
    20 second recharge and 18.512 end cost.
    Base 2.67 scale damage in their "quick" form, down from 3.56 scale.
    Every point of ToHit buffing the player has will increase or decrease this damage, up to a cap of 3.56 scale damage with +22% ToHit buff.
    Slow form will do 4.5 scale damage.
    Epic Snipes
    Will now have a base 1.75 scale damage in their quick form.
    Every point of ToHit buffing the player has will increase or decrease this damage, up to a cap of 2.3 scale damage with +22% ToHit buff.
    Slow form will do 3.56 scale damage
    Slow form crits will do 3.56 + 1.78 scale damage.
    Scrappers should now properly crit 10% of the time, instead of using Stalker requirements.

    New special mechanic. Most single target attacks have a 20% chance of granting Energy Focus mode. Hitting a foe with Total Focus will always grant Energy Focus mode.

    The mode will be removed if a power with bonus is used.

    Explosive Shuriken should no longer state it's an AoE, but still will do splash fire dot damage to foes around the main target.
    Psionic Assault
    Psionic Dart: Cast time reduced from 1.33 to 0.83 seconds.
    Telekinetic Thrust: Cast time reduced from 2.07 to 1.00 seconds. Recharge lowered from 8 seconds to 7 seconds. Damage lowerd from 95.8 to 86.4.

    Illusion Control > Superior Invisibility: Endurance cost lowered from 0.52 to 0.182.
    Powers: Misc Changes & Bug Fixes

    Gravity Control > Propel: Adjusted physics parameters on objects to make them feel solid and not bounce around like rubber toys.

    Pool > Leaping > Spring Attack: now does Containment damage when used by Controllers.
    Pool > Sorcery > Enflame: Should now do damage for Sentinels
    Kheldians > Inherent: Should now see Sentinels the same way they see Blasters and Scrappers, for the purpose of their inherent powers.
    Controller > Ice Control > Flash Freeze: should be properly flagged as a Targeted AoE, not a Point Blank AoE.
    Stalker > Savage Melee > Shred: This power erroneously said it consumed Blood Frenzy stacks. The text has been corrected. This power generates one Blood Frenzy stacks instead. All other AT versions of the power had the correct text for Shred.
    Dominator > Feral Charge: Fixed a bug where sometimes it would do no damage if executed from maximum distance.
    Dominator > Savage Assault > Unkindness: This power erroneously said it consumed Blood Frenzy stacks. The text has been corrected. This power generates one Blood Frenzy stack, and it's DoT becomes stronger the more Blood Frenzy the caster has. This bonus to Unkindness makes up for the set's lack of Savage Leap and Hemorrage.
    Sentinel > Ice Blast > Chilling_Ray: Should now accept Slow enhancements.
    Sentinel > Regeneration > Dismiss Pain: Increased amount of MaxHP granted to 24% from 6%, should had not been that low to begin with.

    Psionic Lance's quick FX was completely broken and out of sync. FX has been resync but this required a slightly slower animation (1.33 seconds.)


    Chernobog will now always spawn after the cutscene in Shauna Stockwell's storyarc.
    Omnicore can no longer be killed by her own robots and prevent her mission from being completed.
    Added a very obvious waypoint to Laura Lockhart's body in the mission "Defend the UNSF Base".
    The first two story arcs for Issue 26 are here! Both were written by @holymittens, a professional video game writer, and target the two “middle” alignments, with one story arc for Vigilantes and one for Rogues.

    New Story Arc: Shauna Braun

    Characters of the Vigilante alignment between Security Levels 25 and 29 can find Shauna Braun in Independence Port, near the southern Police Station, or using the Contact Finder.
    Shauna Braun is a young programmer from Paragon City. She was raised by her father in a tiny apartment in between Kings Row and Independence Port. Shauna moved out when she went to college, but her father - having sacrificed so much to give his daughter a good education - continued to live there until it burned down a year ago. The PPD closed the case, citing an accident as the cause of the fire, but Shauna doesn't buy the explanation. She wants to uncover the truth behind her father's death and bring the perpetrators to justice.
    This arc has two different endings, with a badge for each. The badge art was created by @Log.

    New Story Arc: Bobby Curtin

    Characters of the Rogue alignment between Security Levels 25 and 29 can find Bobby Curtin in Crimson Cove, in front of the White Elephant building, or using the Contact Finder.
    Bobby Curtin is a bouncer at the White Elephant in Crimson Cove, a private establishment which prides itself on being 'neutral ground' between the many warring factions in Nerva. Bobby is known by frequent patrons for being willing to step in and break up fights between anyone, be they Longbow, Arachnos, or mortal manifestation of an ancient god.
    This arc introduces true branching missions to City of Heroes; depending on your choices, you will be presented with a couple of entirely different missions, leading to several possible endings. There is only one badge for this arc, with art created by @Log.

    Rikti Mothership Raid

    The Rikti Mothership raid can now be started from the LFG queue. Characters must be level 35 and have the Member of Vanguard badge to join the raid in this way.
    If the league is not locked, a minimum of 16 players is required to start the raid this way.
    All enemies inside the mission map are level 54, including the ones that are lower level in the zone. All players are bumped to combat level 50 for the duration of the raid.


    Ghost of Scrapyard can now be spawned by defeating 100 Scrapyarders in Sharkhead Isle, and should no longer walk into the Black Market kill field.
    The AVs that spawned in Recluse's Victory were dependent on team size, resulting in some of them being rare. As of this patch, they will spawn regardless of team size in one of three pairs: Positron/Synapse, Back Alley Brawler/Manticore, or Ms. Liberty/Penny Yin. On the villain side, it'll be Black Scorpion+Mako, Ghost Widow+Scirocco, or Lord Recluse+Random patron.
    The cars in Kallisti Wharf will no longer get stuck in an intersection.
    Fixed the zone cap in The Hive, The Abyss and the Rikti War Zone to be 50 (this was accidentally changed in May - it should have always been 50).


    Eochai and Jack in Irons will now reward their badges on defeat regardless of how much damage the player does to them.
    Fixed the badge art for "Skip Tracer" and "Portal Hopper".
    Added the 16th Anniversary badge, "Resurgent". It will award automatically during the month of May.


    Synthetic Hamidon enhancements for Accuracy/Mez and Damage/Mez will now combine with their Titan, Hydra and Hamidon counterparts.
    Fixed an issue with some procs not working on Dual Pistols > Hail of Bullets.
    Corrected "Chance for Fire Damage" text in Sentinel's Ward: Recharge/Chance for Absorb.


    Pool > Leadership > Maneuvers: fixed a bug where Melee, AoE, Lethal and Cold def were only being granted to the caster.
    Tanker > Spines > Spine Burst: This power erroneously had it's Radius increased to 16 instead of its Target Cap. This has been fixed.
    Blaster > Dual Pistols: Fixed an issue where the set was not granting blasters Defiance +Damage
    Dual Pistols > Hail of Bullets: Fixed an issue where the power DoT chance was calculated only once at the activation of the power instead of once per tick when non standard ammo was active.
    Set Bonus > Synapse Shock should no longer show a buff icon.
    Fixed an issue where Psionic Assault > Psi Dart and Poison > Envenom would randomly execute a different animations.
    Fixed an issue where Beam Rifle Disintegration Spread would not need Disintegration effect on the target to be triggered.
    Fixed an issue where Pool > Concealment > Stealth was making players completely translucent.
    Fixed missing +Range buff in Blaster Quick Snipes.
    Fixed an issue where Pool > Concealment > Stealth was granting double Stealth
    Fixed an issue where Engagement mechanics was taking 10 seconds after attack, when it should had taken 8.

    Fixed a bug where Illusion Control powers would not stack as expected.
    Fixed a bug where Illusion pets were ignoring enhancements.
    Fixed a bug where Stalker > Epic > Mu > Zapp would crit multiple times in a single activation. Also fixed timing issues with the FX in this power.
    Fixed a bug in Quick Sniper Blast (All versions) where the central energy orb would ignore color tinting.
    Fixed a bug where some snipes would not disable properly.
    Blaster Devices:
    Targeting Drone and Field Operative were granting double buffs for some of their attributes since last patch. This has been fixed.
    Gun Drone now taunts enemies it hits. In addition, enemies near the Turret should often prioritize attacking the Drone. This power now takes taunt and taunt set enhancements.
    Mace Master > Mace Beam: This power was doing double critical hits in some situations since last patch. This should now be fixed.
    Savage Melee > Assassins Frenzy: This power should now grant 3 stacks of frenzy while used from hide.

    New Origin Power Pool: Force of Will

    This power pool grants you access to various powers that allow you to manifest your own willpower and use it to harm your foes.
    You can only have one Origin Power Pool (Sorcery or Force of Will) in your active build.
    Weaken Resolve: You overwhelm your foe with sheer strength of will, reducing their defense damage resistance, and chance to hit! Recharge: Long
    Project Will: You manifest your willpower into a blast and project it toward a distant foe, causing moderate psionic and smashing damage. Project Will has a fair chance to knock the target down. Damage: Moderate, Recharge: Fast
    Mighty Leap: While this power is active you're able to leap great distances and jump incredibly high. In addition, while this power is active you're able to use Takeoff, which will knockdown nearby foes and increases jump speed. Recharge: Moderate
    Takeoff: You stomp your foot on the ground with tremendous force empowering your jump speed for a short time and shattering the earth beneath, knocking nearby foes off of their feet. Recharge: Long
    Wall of Force: You project an unfocused blast of sheer force at foes in a short wide cone in front of you, dealing moderate psionic and smashing damage and potentially knocking targets down. Wall of Force requires you to have two other powers from the Force of Will power pool. Damage: Moderate, Recharge: Slow
    Unleash Potential: Unleashing your potential, you grant yourself a moderate boost to defense, regeneration rate, and recovery for a short time. Unleash Potential requires you to have two other powers in the Force of Will power pool. Recharge: Very Long

    Other Changes

    The Abandoned Sewers have received a minor atmospheric tweak to make them visually distinct from the standard Sewer Network.
    Bloody Bay, Siren’s Call, Warburg and Recluse’s Victory now have a full complement of 8 Exploration Badges and one Exploration Accolade.
    The Exploration Accolade art was created by @Flashtoo.

    LFG Queue

    The LFG queue will now wait until you have the Recommended number of players for a Trial or Task Force before teleporting you to the contact or mission if the league is not locked.
    If the league is locked, Trials and Task Forces will continue to ignore the minimum players and start even solo. You can invite more players into the League once the Trial starts, but not to a Task Force.
    Incarnate and Holiday Trials continue to always require the minimum number of players, whether the league is locked or not.
    Incarnate trials will no longer automatically fail if a locked league drops below the minimum players. They will still fail if they drop below the minimum players in an unlocked league.
    This setup is an attempt to satisfy both players who want to start Trials and Task Forces solo or with small teams (lock the league) and those who want to use the LFG queue to find teams for Trials and Task Forces (don't lock the league).

  7. If you're trying to use the Homecoming manifest/client you'll need an account at https://forums.homecomingservers.com/ We have our own server and manifest you have to use to connect to our server read the below topic if you want to connect to Victory.


    Note, our server is *VERY* low population usually averaging 3-5 players, Homecoming has thousands of players at any given time across its 5 servers.

    Each time i login it says that the info is incorrect even though its the right log in info ive tried dozens of times help please.





    Hello.  This isn't the support forum, that'd be down the ways a bit. Though my suggestion would be to head over to The Game Account Page and set your password. Then make sure you're selecting the proper Manifest, You'll see "Victory - Heroes/Villains/Rogues" (Which only effect the splash screens you see).  The Manifest shipped with Cream Soda doesn't support Victory any more, so you will need to add our Manifest directly to Tequila/Creamsoda.

  9. Rewards

    Superpacks have a VERY rare chance of dropping on mission complete.


    Hamidon Origin enhancements can now drop off of the Devouring Earth GMs in the Hive/Abyss.


    Added new patterns to tights chest/pants/skirts/boots for Male/Female/Huge Provided by Derek Brown.

    Readded Malaise pattern to tights pants for Male/Female/Huge

    Added Malaise pattern to tights chest for Male/Female/Huge

    City Zones

    Back Alley Brawler got tired of standing around in the east side of the zone, and talked Ms. Liberty into switching spots with him.


    Trainers can no longer change your costume (Currently only blue side has this change live)

  10. TASKS

    Shauna Braun in Independence Port is looking for vigilantes level 25-29 to investigate the fire of Blackwood Tower in which her father died. You can find her using the Contact Finder, or from Ouroboros after level 30.

    The SSA2 introduction tip "A Window of Opportunity" was not dropping. It will now drop for Villains and Rogues level 30 or higher who have not yet completed it, just like the Mortimer Kal introduction tip 10 levels earlier.

    Sentinels will now receive the Power of Scirocco in the Barracuda Strike Force.


    Added the badges "Avenger" and "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" for Shauna Braun's story arc.

    Added the badges "Burgermeister", "Mostly Harmless", "Restless" and "What Lurks Beyond" to Bloody Bay, along with the zone accolade "Bad Blood".

    Added the badges "Hot Dog", "Still Standing", "Volatile" and "Wasted Resources" to Siren's Call, along with the zone accolade "Answered the Call".


    Added 676 base items. You can find them by searching for "New" in the Place Item view.

  11. Announcement from the company hosting our webserver, this will only effect the website/forum it will not effect the game server in any way.


    Start: 2019-06-26 04:00 UTC
    End: 2019-06-26 09:00 UTC


    During the above maintenance window the networking team will be upgrading core networking equipment to improve performance and reliability for our NYC1 location.

    Expected Impact: During this window you may experience brief moments of packet loss as traffic is shifted between networking devices. We will endeavour to keep this to a minimum during the maintenance window.

  12. POWERS

    Burn should no longer ignore accuracy enhancements.

    Night Widow & Fortunata Vengance will now trigger on league members. The buff will still only apply to teammates.

    Beta Decay FX now anchors on the player and not the world.


    From now and until says I, door missions (not AE) have a 20% chance to drop a random Super Pack when completed!


    Added an option to show timestamps on chat, under Options > Windows > Beta Features
    Added power cooldown indicators as a WIP option, accessible through Options > Window > Beta Settings.
    Fixed a couple of issues with the Cathedral of Pain that could cause it to get stuck if all the Obelisks were destroyed or the Aspect of Rularuu was defeated right when the Willforges respawned.
    Fixed a server crash when a player in the final stage of character creation disconnected from the queue server during an unusually long SQL wait queue.
    Fixed a client crash seen during activities with many active power effects, such as the Rikti mothership and Hamidon raids, by switching to 64-bit FX/Sequencer handles.
    Fixed a client crash in the UI drawing code if a pet has a creator but no owner.
    Connections from the client to the QueueServer were not encrypted; they now are.


    Added over 200 items to the Vehicles and Nature tabs. You can find them by searching for (new).


    Offloaded all the hardware-only physics effects to the CPU. This results in the same physics quality as enabling PhysX hardware, as has been requested, without having to actually update the PhysX libraries. The reason it's being done this way is because updating the libraries would break the game client for other servers that share the same game files. The impact on the CPU is negligible on modern hardware.
    Modified the Glacier FX so it can be looked at from below.
    Improved particle effects for Burst Of Speed power in Blaster/Martial Manipulation secondary.
    Improved the Ki Push FX from Martial Combat.
    Lowered the saturation of the reflection cubemap used in the tailor, to better display colors while in the costume creator.
    General improvements to many chest emblems, chest details and supergroup emblems: cleaned edges, reduced compression, standardized resolution.
    Added a second color on many chest and shield emblems that previously only took a single color.
    Repairs/improvements to Face textures to help with skin tone matching and reduction of uncanny valley. The Medusa face was missing the entire blue channel in its diffuse map, this has been reconstructed based on clues in the other parts of this face.
    Improvements to the Makeup color masks for female heads; mostly blurs the edges of the lipstick so it blends better and fits onto the lips more fully when the player chooses heads with different shaped features.
    Fixed a glitch with the Buckled Leather top and alpha channels on chest emblems.


    Immobilize Powers in Controller and Dominator primary power sets should no longer make their targets immune to KnockUp. KnockBack will be converted to KnockDown. This helps sets like Ice and Earth, as their AOE Immobilize power will no longer make their AOE Knockback power useless.
    Flash Freeze should now affect flying enemies.
    Glacier should now be usable while flying.
    Pool > Leaping > Spring Attack: now does Containment damage when used by Controllers.
    Pool > Sorcery > Enflame: Should now do damage for Sentinels
    Kheldians > Inherent: Should now see Sentinels the same way they see Blasters and Scrappers, for the purpose of their inherent powers.
    Controller > Ice Control > Flash Freeze: should be properly flagged as a Targetted AoE, not a Point Blank AoE.
    Stalker > Savage Melee > Shred: This power erroneously said it consumed Blood Frenzy stacks. The text has been corrected. This power generates one Blood Frenzy stacks instead. All other AT versions of the power had the correct text for Shred.
    Dominator > Feral Charge: Fixed a bug where sometimes it would do no damage if executed from maximum distance.
    Domintoar >Savage Assault > Unkindness: This power erroneously said it consumed Blood Frenzy stacks. The text has been corrected. This power generates one Blood Frenzy stack, and it's DoT becomes stronger the more Blood Frenzy the caster has. This bonus to Unkindness makes up for the set's lack of Savage Leap and Hemorrage.
    Sentinel > Ice Blast > Chilling_Ray: Should now accept Slow enhancements.
    Sentinel > Regeneration > Dismiss Pain: Increased amount of MaxHP granted to 24% from 6%, should had not been that low to begin with.


    Rikti War Zone pylons now drop 3 Vanguard Merits when destroyed, for a total of 60 Vanguard Merits for all 20 pylons.
    Rikti Drop Ships and Patrol Ships now drop 6 Reward Merits and 10 Vanguard Merits when destroyed.
    Fixed an issue with Morality Missions not resetting the mission owner's alignment points on completion in some cases. This does not apply to teammates, only the mission owner. This was allowing players to run Morality Missions back to back to very quickly get a lot of merits.
    Increased the reward for completing a Morality Mission to 40 Reward Merits.

  14. Welcome again all!

    The downtime planned for this weekend went off without a hitch!

    We now have 2 24GB 6 Core Mapservers, and a 12GB 4Core DBServer powering everyones favorite CoH Server!

    Startup times are now in the area of 5 minutes, all static (City zones) are loaded at boot so no more long zone times waiting on your next zone to load up!  Lag is down as this box is dedicated to Victory so enjoy!

  15. Hello all!

    Our server provider has provisioned our new server after a week of waiting! At some point over the weekend I'll be taking Victory down to be migrated over to our new hardware, there will be *NO* loss of data during the move.


    Thank you!

  16. You should be able to place your .storyarcs in the "Missions" folder in your City of Heroes directory, you'll also need to place your .critter files in the "Custom_Critters" folder.  Once they're there the AE console should show them and allow you to publish.


    Patrol XP can now be consumed in Architect Rewards mode and/or a bonus XP multiplier. It will always add 50% to the base XP earned.

    Fixed the SHO reward for STF and LRSF; they were giving a SO if picked again after 18 to 24 hours.

    Replaced the Jetpack Suppliers in the Shadow Shard with P2W Field Agents.

    Some unused Pandora's Box SSA contacts were being introduced by other contacts; this should no longer happen.

    Fixed a potential crash when putting an enhancement in the Auction House (OuroDev PR #66 & #70).

    Zone maps will now be marked as "full" and stop new players from entering them if they grow over 1.8GB of RAM; meet in a different zone instance if someone you need to team with is on a "full" map. If a map uses over 2.0GB of RAM, it will automatically shutdown; even a mission map. It's not the most elegant way to address a memory leak, but it works for now.

    Lowered the costume change timer from 30 seconds to 15 seconds.


    The Positron Task Force (Part 1) can now be started with a minimum level of 8.

    Completing a Morality mission now rewards 20 Merits. Turns out that 50 merits for 10 short missions was way too much.


    XP Boosters purchased from P2W can now be deleted from the Powers window. This is useful if you decide that you want to switch from a 25% bonus to a 50% one, for example, or if you don't want the influence penalty anymore.

    The Mission Architect version of the power "Unkindness" from Savage Assault will now actually damage the target instead of healing them.

    The PPD Captain "Call for Backup" power will now only spawn up to three PPD reinforcements and not spawn additional ones unless one of the 3 is defeated, instead of an infinite forever every 30 seconds.


    Added "Fashion Victim" for spending 50,000,000 inf on the tailor. Rewards a Free tailor token for your trouble.

    Moved "Newsman", "Faultless Mystic" and "Apex" from Faultline to Echo: Faultline.

    Added "Riveting", "Upcycled" and "Rock Bottom" to Faultline.

    Added "Forsaken", "Pristine", "Claim Denied", "Spare Parts" and "Dug Too Deep" to Echo: Faultline.

    Added "Epicenter", Echo: Faultline zone accolade.


    "Apply to Room" and "Apply to Base" will now work to fill an entire block floor-to-ceiling.


    Archery animations should now work properly.

    Rain of Arrows animation has been reduced from 4 to 2 seconds. Recharge time has been increased slightly to compensate.

    Bio Armor > Hard Carapace: This power should now offer damage resistance in PvP

    Cold Domination for Controllers and Masterminds now have a Minimal FX option, just as Defenders and Corruptors do.

    Fixed an error that allowed players to create Shield Defense characters with Claws, Dual Blades, Ninja Sword, Spines or Staff Fighting primaries. These characters always were broken and unplayable.

    Scrapper's Shinobi-Iri should now be able to accept Jump enhancement sets.

    Sentinel's Beam Rifle > Refractor Beam should now accept Defense Debuff sets.

    Stalker's Ice Melee should now crit on PvP

    Added missing Doppelganger conversion for the following player powersets:


  18. All of the non pigg files are handled by other mirrors.  I know yesterday a lot of people were having issues with some of the mirrors serving corrupted files.  You might want to full close and relaunch Tequila, and hit validate to see if it's able to pickup good files.
