Hi all,

Blastor's first I9 build is below. I guess it won't mean anything for many as IO set names are all confusing and we don't know their set bonus by heart. But you can use this link if you're interested...

Anyway, once I collect all IOs and complete the build, I'll receive the following set bonus:

17% DamBuff
3,45% Def(Energy)
0,95% Def(Neg)
1,88% Def(Psi)
+12,6% Max End
32,5% Enhance(RechargeTime)
2,5% Enhance(Slow)
190 (15,8%) HP
MezRes(Immobilize) (Mag 14,9%)
MezRes(Sleep) (Mag 2,75%)
13% Recvry
56% Regen
6,58% Res(Fire)
1,58% Res(Cold)
6,26% ToHit


Comments are appreciated, here it comes:

nice build B however wednesdays patch has a hidden patch note that wasn't included that Bridger is adding later i think however it's in the patch notes topic area neway:

Quote:
Not listed in these notes:

o Passive movement powers such as Swift and Hurdle may be no longer be slotted with Travel IO sets.


swift is the only power u need 2 change neway B, hope i helped.

Btw although Mids' hero builder will allow u 2 slot those sets into swift & hurdle it wont let u in-game, just a heads up 4 others designing their I9 builds.

Thanks Alpha,

I already have 3xSoaring on both Hover and Fly and 2xFreebird (1xEnd & 1xFly) on Blastor. I tried to put Freebird Stealth unique IO on the 3rd slot of Swift however it wasn't possible. This is when I realised that unique IOs cannot be slotted on passive powers.

I'll simply switch Soaring on Hover with Freebird on Swift. I hope it'll work...

I have nothing to say on this build. I'm only posting to annoy you with my new avatar blast. :D

Not true: Very nice regen bonus coming through there Blast and nice smaller boosts all round. One thing that concerns me on all these sets is the very low accuracy levels - as most sets only seem to contain 2 split accuracy bonuses. For many toons previously using just two SO's this is an accuracy drop of around 10% and in PVP especially it probably isn't enough. In fact, it probably isn't even close to be enough. With you having both Aim and Build Up it's not a problem but most toons it will be. This is the only serious flaw I can see in most of the IO's I've looked at so far. But it is a big one. You would think that the players most interested in IO's will be high level toons, probably lvl 50 who want to improve performance in PVP - which is the one area where you'll want a lot more accuracy and a lot more To Hit bonus especially. Also in the patch notes was the switching of the 'accuracy' bonus from effecting player To Hit levels to power Accuracy levels. I don't understand that decision unless the devs have only been looking at PVE results since the sets have been out.

Thanks for the comment my dwarf friend located in Paragon City :)...

Well observed mate, my accuracy is a bit lower than my previous build but I intend to compensate with faster recharging aim & build up (also boosted with recharge/tohit hamios, it's on my new build :)) and higher damage (almost doubled on most attack powers).

HP, End, Regen and Recovery buffs are important but I'll know about how they'll change the overall once I complete the build and see them in action, might still be the same blaster who dies with 3 shots :).

One thing though, IO Sets are important for set bonus and it's true that they boost one aspect of the power while they reduce another significantly. In my case it's accuracy and I trust Aim & Build Up for it, but there's nothing stopping me to use single aspect accuracy IOs, giving 40% buff, whereever I need them...

I'm going to try and get on with the eXecustionist again tonight to check this further but it does look like the devs want to boost our damage - throughout the sets - at the expense of accuracy. If everyone adopts IO sets for the huge bonuses available on all the other power attributes then it does look as though the high/damage-high/defence AT's - with Aim/Build Up etc will benefit most from sets. I'm hoping to see some high-defence boosting sets too.

Anyone fancy a tussle with my eXecutionist then? :twisted:

You're right mate, IO sets are mostly focused on damage, however options are endless, you can choose a damage set giving set bonus for HP, regen, end & recovery as well as accuracy or more damage.

I chose HP and End increase over accuracy because I believe those are what I miss the most but the decision is all upto individuals...

As for teaming with Executionist on CoV, I'm really crazy about developing Blastor these days, collected 23 set IOs out of 77 and I have a very long way to go. But who knows :)...

And not so much on any defence boosts Blast?

See this link mate. Defence buffs generally require 5 or 6 slots. However if you go with sets where the buff is indicated in red you'll receive a 3.75% increase (orange: 3.13%, black: 2.5%, blue: 1.88% and green: 1.25%)...

I was working on Mono's build (Claws/SR) and I managed to bring his melee, ranged & aoe values just above 40%...

Hmmm. That's pretty strange it does vary alot based on power type. The Sleep, hold and immobilise sets all have triple Accuracy buffs in the set and so have the fear sets. Nightmare, for example has quadruple accuracy slots and the whole set then provides a further 3.75% player acc boost. Flippin good for any Fear-based toons. *coughs* like the eXecutionist.

Stun based sets also feature quadruple accuracy slots which also provide a large regeneration bonus. Very handy for the .. err ... the eXecutionist but only at the expense of damage. :?

Whereas the Healing sets include no accuracy slots at all. Nothing any good for us Kinetics there blast. And defence powers also get it pretty good. Great for the ... errrr ... the eXecutionist. The Luck of The Gambler there looks good with a 10% regeneration bonus and a 6.25% accuracy boost too. Nice.

Just spotted a good melee acc booster in Pulverizing Fisticuffs which triple boost acc and damage and leaves 3 slots spare. But there's not much else there for melee fighters.

Overall it looks like it's the ranged guys who get the lack of accuracy boosts - with the exception of the any sniper shots (which have loads of acc boosts) whereas controller-types also get lots of acc and control boosts. Ice and Snow Storm controllers/corruptors look like they'll get lots of acc and slowing bonuses too. The Infrigidator will like that. When I get back to him.

Hmmm.

So good for my eXecutionist, nuetral to not much for Kinetics dudes (except acc/slows), ok for melee fighters, great for controllers. Not much for defender/offender types.

Chiefette should be happy. :lol:

Again, correct observation mate, there's a few sets available for Kins, that's why I intend to create a all-hamios build for my kin corruptor, which I think will be interesting.

You have no idea how it is easy to buy hamios from the auction house :) ...

No I haven't. That's why I keep asking. Still seems waaayyy too fiddly for me. Trying to log on now - to no avail! Grrrrrrrr.

I keep getting this ridiculous connection error. Can't even get the Updater to run (again)!!!

PS Was checking out Mid's Hero Planner. It's pretty awesome. It makes it way easier to see what the hell all those IO and IO sets do together. I imagine doing future, high-level respecs is going to be a bit more timeconsuming though. :)

Surprised this wasn't in here before:

To bypass the updater, create a shortcut to CityOfHeroes.exe (not the updater). Right click the shortcut and click Properties. In the Target line, modify it to match this:

"C:\Program Files\City of Heroes\CityOfHeroes.exe" -project coh


it skips the updater only problem is you need to have a up to date client for it to work

Nice one Mess. Smart thanks:

I can keep that idea for emergencies.

Btw guys: I have finally penetrated all the details of the IO market system - which is definitely not explained very well anywhere. And guess what?

I really like it.

It's adding a lot of fun to the game now. I didn't understand how the bid system worked at first - expecting to work like a normal auction system (and ebay) by incrementing the price automatically - which it doesn't of course. In my usual hurry to clear out my salvage tray I dropped a bat wing invention part on their suspecting it might go for a few thousand. It sold instanltly for 8mn!!! Very handy at lvl 36.

There are also a lot of high level and odd number SO's on there too many for sale at just a few thousand - which is somewhat odd as you can sell for a lot more at the SO shops.

So in case you haven't looked into this yet - I would. :D

Trying to log on again now Mess. I have the same problem. This trick:
To bypass the updater, create a shortcut to CityOfHeroes.exe (not the updater). Right click the shortcut and click Properties. In the Target line, modify it to match this:

"C:\Program Files\City of Heroes\CityOfHeroes.exe" -project coh
Works but doesn't accept my login. 'Either the username or password is incorrect'.

I'm trying to find the analyis software to check it again. I can't connect (via the updater) on my other PC either and I can switch off my forewall and get the same problem so it looks more like my router. WoW and LoTRO don't seem affected by it though?

GRRRRRRRR!!!

Blastor's I9 build finally completed yesterday by crafting Regenerative Tissue IO...

So the list of set bonuses is here:

+17% DamageBuff
+3% Defense(Smashing)
+3% Defense(Lethal)
+3% Defense(Fire)
+3% Defense(Cold)
+6,45% Defense(Energy)
+3,95% Defense(Negative)
+3% Defense(Psionic)
+3% Defense(Melee)
+3% Defense(Ranged)
+3% Defense(AoE)
+8,55% Max Endurance
+18% Enhancement(Accuracy)
+40% Enhancement(RechargeTime)
+2,5% Enhancement(Slow)
+158,2 (13,1%) HitPoints
+Knockback (Mag -8 )
+MezResist(Confused) (Mag 50%)
+MezResist(Held) (Mag 50%)
+MezResist(Immobilize) (Mag 64,9%)
+MezResist(Sleep) (Mag 52,8%)
+MezResist(Stun) (Mag 50%)
+MezResist(Terrorized) (Mag 50%)
+9% Recovery
+56% Regeneration
+4,08% Resistance(Fire)
+1,58% Resistance(Cold)
+3% Resistance(Psionic)
+7,5% RunSpeed

It's weird the planner doesn't count the global bonus received from single IOs such as Numina (20% regen 10% recovery), Miracle (15% recovery) and Regenerative Tissue (25% regen) giving additional 45% regen & 25% recovery bringing my regen to 101% and recovery to 34%.

Plus I have 6% accuracy from Kismet, Chance to Build Up from Decimation, Chance to Hold from Devastation and Stealth form Freebird...

Here's Blastor's build for those interested:

It took me almost 6 weeks to finish this build but I enjoyed every minute of it. Now it's Blasting Spines' turn where I'll aim perma Dull Pain and END buff, as much as I can get. I think his build will be faster and cheaper compared with Blastor's...

I'm not sure that it's strange this didn't work.

where's the specification to connect to the EU servers in that execution?

Thanks for posting this Blast. Interesting stuff. I noted that the IO's are not all level 50's too so the enhancement percentage bonus you get is lower, perhaps up to 5% lower?

I'm not sure i will completely IO set a toon. Will probabably put a few of some sets in, but i'm not convinced there is enough choice on the sets to get the correct %buff for the powers that you can get with single IO/SO slotting. Especially on Accuracy and Endurance, two of the major pains in CoH that limit us Heroes, that we are forced to slot in just about everything :evil:

(struggling with my DArk/Dark scrapper) :(

Thanks Betty, firstly for posting a related message to the thread's subject, the animation next to this represents my feeling towards Mess & Ebon, [smilie=bash.gif] ... :)

Yes, some IOs are not level 50 but the buff difference is too small, say damage buff from Decimation (lvl40) they end up almost with the same value of a lvl50 set because of Enhancement Diversification rule. But with Decimation I get "Chance to Build Up" IO which might be useful and Decimation simply provides me better Set Bonus compared with other lvl50 sets of that kind. I also have +17% damage Set Bonus buff to compensate, see the Set Bonus list of Blastor. As you know the Set Bonus is a fixed value no matter what the level of that set is...

Accuracy & Endurance can only be improved by Set Bonus or single IOs. I'd personnally go with +acc or +end with set bonuses because it affects your character and all powers whereas single IOs will only affect the power where it's slotted...

As for my suggestions for a Dark scrapper build, I think you shouldn't have any accuracy problem with Focused Accuracy from Body Mastery epic pool.

You are a resistance based AT rather than defence and you have both end drain and self heal powers (both hit powers though) so I suggest you invest on Recharge Set bonuses to use them more often. A quick calculation: 100% is your base recharge, you get 70% from hasten and upto 95% from 3 time reduc IOs, so if you can manage to get around 30% from set bonuses you'll have recharge value of 300%, which means your powers will recharge 3 times faster (Dark Consumption in every 60seconds and Dark regeneration in every 10 seconds).

And as far as I can see Knock Back is your only problem since you have protection to other mez attacks. I suggest you get Karma (KB Protection) and Steadfast Protection (KB Protection), these 2 Set IOs will provide you a global buff of permanent KB protection just by slotting them to any available power, eventhough you never use it...

Here's the list of Global and Unique IOs for your information. You can contact me if you need more advise...

Thanks for the offer … and hope you dont mind me posting it here.... :?

I have tried many ways of slotting, tweaked things here and there (used three respecs so far) just to try and keep this toon playable. I find this set very difficult to get just right.

I’m not so sure slotting for recharge would be a good idea. It would be nice to have the recharge, but then using the powers more means eating up your endurance faster, something I can’t afford to do and if you miss a lot then its even worse. I have gone with the “make sure I hitâ€

Hey Betty,

I suggested Recharge buff as Set Bonus (Not as IO Buff) for following reasons:

1) Recharge set bonus comes generally at high number slotting like 4-5. Take "Crushing Impact" Melee Set for instance, when slotted with 5 IOs you get recharge, accuracy & HP set bonuses. This pool might be useful since you're a melee fighter. And those 5 IOs from that set will give you a better mix of enhancement buffs like endurance, recharge, accuracy & damage.

2) By investing on Recharge Set bonus I thought you might use your self heal&end powers rather than your attack powers more often (Dark Consumption in every 60secs and Dark Regeneration in every 10secs), effectively resolving your HP, END, Regen & Recovery problems. So apart from Recharge you can also focus on increasing your overall damage with Set bonuses.

3) Believe me you'll have no accuracy problems once you get Focused Accuracy. I'd also recommend Conserve Power from the same epic pool. Again, having a high rate of recharge you can also use Conserve Power more often...

These single global IOs will also be useful to your build, but I have to say, they're expensive:

Numina (20% regen 10% recovery)
Miracle (15% recovery)
Regenerative Tissue (25% regen)
Kismet (6% Accuracy to all powers)

Yep, i see where you are coming from now. I looked at the sets that buff recharge and took a note of the few that i would like. Crushing impact was one of them that i will definately be getting. :D

Accuracy is sorted now with tactics running it seems. Took out some purple and red Cot last night without trouble. I'll definately be taking the Focused Accuracy and Conserver Power Epic set and then i will look to changing the few IO Accuracy enhancements that i have slotted for recharges too.

I looked for the anit-knockback IO recipes last night...none for sale :evil: so i will stick with acrobatics for now.

Thanks for your help, will keep you posted :D

Quick suggestions:

1) Once you get Focused Accuracy, think about if you need Tactics or not. If you intend to play this scrapper in PvE FA alone will be more than enough, otherwise Tactics will drain your endurance. Btw, Focused Accuracy is one of the biggest end heavy toggles in the game. I used to slot 3x End Reduc and 3xToHit SOs. Since I9, I slot 3xCytoskeleton Exposure Hami-O (ToHit/End Reduc) giving same buffs by using 3 slots instead of 6, as they're now easier to find in the Auction House. However, if you intend to play your toon in PvP then you'll need 2 perception powers to be able to see Stalkers running 2 Stealth powers, therefore keep Tactics...

2) With FA, I never used Accuracy SOs on my powers before I9, slotting them with 3 damage SOs and 1 time reduc SO only (if it's an attack power). FA made it easier to me to allocate more slots to my regen powers and use them effectively. But since the invention system, it all changed when I had to use 5 Set IOs to get -recharge Set Bonus...

3) As for unavailability of certain recipes or crafted Set IOs, just bid on them, eventhough they're unavailable, when you have enough inf. Sooner or later they'll become available. This way you'll have more chance to get them rather than waiting until they're available then bidding...
