Crafted self-Rez temp power

Since reserves are replacing inspirations for some extents and purposes, I would like to propose a temporary self-Rez power that drops as a common recipe.

Are we even certain there would be a need for such a power? Just saying that enough changes are happening between CoH and CoT (which includes the inspiration thing) that needing to self-rez every other minute might not even be a remote possibility unless you're TRYING to get yourself killed that often.

TBH I got to the point where I hardly used self-rez inspirations anyway so I probably wouldn't miss them in CoT. Either I was playing alts that had built-in self-rez powers or I just didn't die very often to begin with.

CoH player from April 25, 2004 to November 30, 2012

Don't know what death penalty

Don't know what death penalty if any will exist in CoT but I sincerely don't want rez cheapened so much that its no longer a benefit to teaming

I think it is a QoL issue.

I think it is a QoL issue. Wakies were very important in how I played the mid 20s to early 40s game. If the game is to be spiritual successor without inspirations (which I'm absolutely cool with), the only inspiration functionality that has not been hinted at is awaken.

I freakin' hated hospital runs

Trick question.

Trick question.

Momentum builds up as a consequence of attacking Foes.
Unspent Momentum converts into Reserves.
Reserves are what is consumed to provide the functionality previously supplied by Inspirations.
So in City of Titans, a Wakie Inspiration action can be performed by spending Reserves.

Presumably, Reserves are not depleted by the act of faceplanting, although presumably once you've faceplanted, all of your Momentum will be wiped so you won't be generating more Reserves after faceplanting.

Provided that Reserves are not also wiped out by faceplanting (a reasonable assumption), so long as you've generated enough Reserves prior to faceplanting to be able to afford a Wakie after faceplanting ... what was your problem again?

Now, granted, I can easily envision (not to mention would insist upon) the condition that taking a trip to the Hospital will ALSO wipe your Reserves to zero ... but then you're hardly going to need to spend your Reserves to give yourself a Wakie after going to the Hospital now are you?

And all of this goes without saying that you'd similarly need to have enough Reserves built up to be able to afford giving someone else a Wakie as well. Again, provided you haven't burned your Reserves down too low already, what is the problem?

Like I said ... trick question.
The only scenarios I can come up with where a Player has insufficient Reserves to pay for (enough?) Wakies all involve a chain of decisions that are entirely the Player's fault in a Cause & Effect manner that ought to be rather obvious.

Considering we don't have the mechanics of the reserves system, I find your Bolding of comments to be a bit presumptive. If I want to run a face planting blapper, it is not a character flaw after all

Redlynne's statements are close to the mark and are based off previous discussions on the matter. Reserves can be used to rez oneself. There is no current plan to wipe Reserves on using a 'hospital trip'.

Guess I'm just a bit more hawkish/harder by default on the use of Hospital services then. ^_~

Nah, you're just not taking into account that when you go to the Hospital, the doctors give you cookies and juice to build up your reserves before discharging you. ^_^

They give you cookies and juice when you donate blood, not when they have to go to the trouble of saving your life. Have you ever SEEN hospital food?

SSM Healthcare prides itself

SSM Healthcare prides itself on having great food at it's hospitals on the theory that better overall service means better healing.

I've been a patient, and the food is actually quite good

(not all hospital food is the same)

Lay your hands on me
While I'm bleeding dry
Break on through blue skies
And take it high

Yep, just earlier this month when I was admitted to the ER. Had a tasty turkey sandwich while waiting for my X-rays.

I would be more interested in crafting a temp power that lets me rez other players.
