Like a lot of you, I've been consumed by the Frankenstein City of Heroes that's sprung up. I tell myself I'll beat Recluse as a redside warshade then put it down.
I don't play a lot of multiplayer, for no good reason, and getting back into the Old City has reminded me of something I really missed about it: the stories!
The leeroy jenkins and the warship raids and finishing a task force after half the team had quit or D/C'd.
Tonight's story was on my quest for Recluse, taking down Ghost Widow! Redside is still neglected in the afterlife of CoH, so getting a team for high level content was rough, but I decided a rag-tag group of lowbies was better than soloing as a warshade, so I got a team of 8 and charged in. I had the warshade teleport and ouroboros so travel was easy. There was enough damage output for the rest of the mission to go pretty smoothly. Then we got to Ghost Widow. Half the team drops immediately, with a lv 15 brute trying to tank an AV. I use my THREE resurrects and accept defeat to the hospital. I grab some Insp and teleport back. I get back to the room to see the dominator was able to single-handedly sleep Ghost Widow, so she was sitting there at 3/4 health ready for the team. We charge in, and calling shots, we had just enough Hold to stop her from healing indefinitely, we finally get Ghost Widow down, and I drain her essence into a Nictus pet just to rub it in!
What're some of your favorite stories from CoH?
