Hi lads. I've hit up CO. @Surg3on

Nice and casual so I'm liking it.

I can see some of you have discussed stats. They confuse the hell outta me (WTF is a super stat?) so anywhere good to read , id appreciate a link.

Couldnt quite remake professor magma so ive made:
  • Insanity Pepper - Acrobatic gun toting jester chick
  • Dozer - Black, yellow, built like a .... well you get it
  • Psychotoad - Ego powered toad, gimped his powers and respecs too expensive :p

Feel free to send me a tell anytime in game, Kash, I've done a fair bit of reading on stats and played around with the stuff a lot, though I haven't gotten past level 20 yet, so if it changes radically after that I don't know about it, though I doubt it does.

Super stat = the stat your damage will scale with. If you pick Super Constitution, every point of constitution you have will now also increase the damage you do with all types of attacks.

You also get a bunch of extra points in whichever stats you make super stats, at level 6 it's like 11 its about 18 points, and by level 40 it reaches 80 or 90 points, so it's ideal to pick a stat that will improve whichever Passive slot ability you take (e.g. Invulnerability, Regeneration, Shadow Form, etc. etc.). These are some of the only abilities that scale with a specific stat other than whatever you pick for super stat. Invulnerability, for example, scales with Strength and Con.

The only other exception to this is that Melee damage scales with strength (capped at 20% increase unless you Super Stat strength, in which case I don't know what the cap is but it's supposedly higher), quite a lot of Telekinesis abilities scale with Ego, and direct healing abilities scale with presence (this includes HoT's, but not moves like Devour Essence or Lifedrain, which heal based on damage).

I usually pick stats purely based around my Passives, probably because I've done a lot of PvP and staying alive in there without Teleport is hard. Tazer Arrow and Shotgun spam are ruining PvP at the moment, and teleport has huge advantages over other travel powers for it too.

OK so my first super stat is the one i pick at level 5ish? OR is it the two stats I picked up at character creation?

Yep, Super Stats are picked at level 5 and level 13. What you pick at the start is just a stat boost, like getting a new piece of gear.

Hey Kash / Spot / Secro. Im playing CO too as @Runes. Aion just too much of a time investment for a Dad with 2 kids so im liking CO alot. Plus my two boys (i bought a 2nd account) are playing it on the w.ends and loving it (funny to see my 9 yr old owning ppl in pvp :P ) My main is a Power Armour themed dude called Runes MKVI.

Might look you guys up if you are still playing.

Ahh bugger, shame. I dont mind the game so much although i play for quick pvp fixes at the moment since im SGless. I enjoy the challenge of making a pvp toon that doesnt use MR / STC or other lame powers and still being competitive :)
