You heard it here first: Household Goods power set, comprising such powers as the Comfy Chair, the Soft Cushions, and The (Dishwashing) Rack. It might even extend to the 'Dog Kennels' if we're to mix skits.

I know it's not currently planned for release (much to my chagrin), but do you have a sense of what powersets you would like to do for the Hunter (blaster equivalent, I believe) manipulation secondaries and can you give any hints? Have you started any development on that yet? I presume you're probably focused on what is slated for launch.

Will we get lore* about events involving characters / contacts who are in the game? E.g. If Aurelia and Castilucci are contacts in the game, it'd be awesome to read more about their story even if it's not something we can pursue in-game.

They did, then said "oh shit wrong list, sorry guys" :p No Dark as launch :( But it's more of an aesthetic than a power.

Question. Can I use dual pistols as a special effect for a melee power set? They would really be short ranged, but it would be totally cool.
I could call him, Point Blank Man.
Please?
Try this,
1st) Massive Melee (for the area of effect)
2nd) Invulnerability
3rd) Rage

Sword or Dual Pistols...its all the same, right?

Functionally speaking, the game mechanics aren't going to "care" if you're using swords or pistols. The animation aesthetics will care (of course), but so long as the option is available ... uh ... sure?

How many characters will we be able to "store" when the character creator is available? Will the powerset design and aesthetic decoupling choices will be included?

Any idea how many costume slots we get yet? When they're available? How soon after a character's creation can we give them a second costume? Probably too soon for these questions.

I'm not a Dev but I play one on TV... Seriously though I do spend way too much time on these threads so I do have some good "educated guesses" for your questions based on what the Devs have already told us.

As far as "storing" characters goes I think we need to be clear about the terminology we're using here. While it's very likely there will be a max number of characters we'll be able to create in the game I doubt there would ever be a "limit" to the number of characters we could design with the standalone Avatar Builder app.

Think of the Avatar Builder more like the in-game ICON costume designer in CoH - it'll should let us design/edit costumes, body sliders and aesthetic decoupling choices and allow us to SAVE those choices in special costume/body slider files. Those files should then be loadable into the game when we actually want to create a character in the game. The key difference will be that the DESIGNING of a character should be doable independently of CREATING a character in the game. Because the Avatar Builder simply saves design files as its output the only "limit" to that should be the literal storage capacity of whatever computer you're using to run the Avatar Builder app. Hope that makes sense.

Well by the time CoH was shutdown it allowed a player to instantly buy (via the cash store) up to 5 extra costume slots for every character of your account. That was above and beyond any other slots you could get otherwise by playing the game. If I had to guess there will likely be something similar for CoT: The overall total number of costume slots a character will be able to get will likely be a mixture of slots you can just simply buy on Day One as well as other slots that will unlockable by in-game rewards and/or level thresholds. Again if CoT follows CoH closely on this then each character would be able to have 6 slots the day you start and up to 10 slots by level 50.

Frankly I hope the "max number allowable" will be higher than 10. I assume it would still be easier from a software point of view to have a hardwired max number of slots set to some value, but if that number happens to be more like 20 or 25 in CoT I doubt that would "bother" me in the least. ;)

I appreciate the response, Lothic. I had read your info in the props topic shortly after I had planted my question here. Hopefully we can all plan out and whet our imaginations for many, many toons. And as Hero asks for many versions of many, many toons. :-)

It's funny you mentioned CO: That game came up the idea of "selling extra costume slots in the cash store" roughly 2 years before CoH started doing it. ;)

Now it's been many years since I last played CO but at that point I think their max costume slots per character was also 10. Obviously they could have upped that max since I last played and if they did then good for them. As I implied before having a max of 20 costume slots per character in CoT would be absolutely wonderful. There might be people out there who'd want even -more- than that but I would think at least 20 would be a "more than generous" workable max for 99.999% of the playerbase.

As far being able to have a way to let a character have at least 2 costume slots at launch goes I would be absolutely shocked if that WASN'T possible in this game. You'd likely have to pay extra for that from the in-game store but believe me I'll be personally buying as many extras costume slots as the game will allow. ;)

I don't recall if this question has been asked, or answered already, and it's not in the FAQ, but it just occurred to me.

Will there be a Beta/Testing/Trial server, where we can bash around the new content and try out other ideas, before taking them to the Live/Permanent server?

You mean will there be a permanently active "test server" AFTER the game goes live? I don't know if any Dev has specifically mentioned it but would be very strange if that didn't happen. Back in CoH having the test server certainly made testing each new Issue/hotfix before release very easy. It also saved me countless millions of INF in costume experimentation. ;)

I assume it's still going to happen although I haven't seen any news about it lately. *shrugs*

It was supposed to happen well before the actual game was launched so I have to think we'll start hearing real news about it in the coming few months.

Will enemies insta-heal if the player is defeated or runs away a certain distance to re-group? The fact that that did not happen in CoX is something that put it head and shoulders above most other MMOs, in my book. Like the low defeat penalty, it encouraged players to keep trying, which I thought echoed the spirit of the superhero genre perfectly.

In Praetoria, if you pulled too far from an enemy it would return to it's initial location and heal. It changed how I ran the streets as a lowbie. I could no longer run away and fight again before he had returned to full health.

Building upon this, Can I have a giant floating Fist (gauntlet) for a ranged attack. and to go with it, the same floating fist for a non-combat pet?
this would be a metal gauntlet in the shape of a giant fist 6 feet long. If you are going to make the fist for attacks, you might as well make it a pet that floats over your shoulder.

Makes me wonder what arm she wears with the dress blues. The one with all the spiky bits is definitely not regulation.
