Ambrite weapon set?

15 July 2014 - 07:22 PM

So other than getting a look at the axe and shield, do we know anything about this? I'm having ascended tier flashbacks and its getting me worried. Someone please site a source saying this is just a skin set and not a new stat tier.

Skill/trait calculator

16 April 2014 - 11:43 PM

Probably a bit early to be asking this one, but does anyone know of a skill and trait calculator that is up-to-date with the new patch? Free re-specs not withstanding I don’t really feel like mucking with my build until I can freely fiddle around with the new changes outside of the game. Just easier to try out all my options that way.

Where the hell are all my hats?

To say nothing of my actual town clothes. I log in with my character and find them missing. They aren’t in my inventory, my bank, or the new wardrobe system. I’ve heard that some things were converted into tonics, but I’ve got no tonics either. What the hell man?

Forum game; super power rumble

13 April 2014 - 10:02 PM

So some of my recent threads and posts have been firmly on the serious side, so I figured I would lighten things up in my little corner of the internet with completely frivolous thread about comic book super powers. I’m sure we’ve all seen a version of this game somewhere before, and statistically speaking mine probably isn’t what you would call “original” but really who cares? Just something dumb to pass the time and have a little nerd-fun.

So here is what we’re doing; drop by the superpower wiki, linked below, and click the random page button. Congratulations; that’s your super power. Provide a link and or a short description of what you can do, and then explain how you would beat up the poster above you. Simple.


The rules
Rule 1; no god powers. These are things like complete arsenal or any of the reality warping things. You can be OP, but you can’t be a god. If you get that, reroll. Please.
Rule 2; if you crack a power dependent power like Power Mimic or Absorption then just assume that you have the same power as whomever you are fighting. That is to say you got what the guy above you got, and the guy that fights you overrides that power with his own, making you a clone battle.
Rule 3; If you get a power that isn’t actually a power, like Power Switching or Object based powers then just reroll; simpler that way.

Time to start this off. I get…. /drum roll

Black Lion Tickets

12 April 2014 - 05:54 PM

In a recent, now locked, thread I tried to discuss the objective definition of pay-to-win, and quickly found that for various reasons doing so is….difficult, to say the least. So rather than rehash that argument I thought I would move on to some more specific issues. In today’s flame war….err….discussion I’d like to get the community’s thoughts on Black Lion Tickets and the weapon skins tied to them. Before I give my thoughts and open this up I’d like to propose one “postulate” for this discussion just to get us all on the same page. Specifically that Black Lion Chest and Claim Tickets aren’t going anywhere.

Like many of you I hate Black Lion Chests and once even suggested we boycott by way of instant deletion when they drop (didn’t catch on, obviously), but I’m a realist. Yes in an ideal world those chest and their ticket scraps would be a thing of the past and the weapon skins that go with would be in some way integrated into existing or new game-play content. But come on; what are the odds of that happening? NC Soft is making way too much money off those chests, so they aren’t going to just let them go. Instead we should be focusing on a way to make this system work for us, rather than simply demanding it be removed.

So here is my thought; Black Lion Ticket Scraps should be added to daily achievement rewards. And full, complete, Black Lion Tickets should be added to monthly achievement rewards. Of course I’d like to see their drop rates across the board increased generously, but either way this would make amassing tickets reasonable with little to no monetary investment, while still maintaining the Black Lion Chest’s place as the more “convenient” means of obtaining them. Under this system, with a little luck, a semi-dedicated player could manage to get a shiny new weapon skin with a month’s effort. Kind of slow and grindy of course, but still somewhat reasonable. And certainly better than the current “spend hundreds of dollars and you might get a skin” chest only system.
