Hmmm... I kinda like the Trepids Nouveau idea... although not sure what I would redo Ebon as (nor what I would rename the current Ebon to!)

Maybe the idea behind the Nouveau team would be 'which of your favourite toons (if not your signature toon) would you redo - and with what powers - if you had to redo from scratch?'

Would be great if we did all fancy a Marvel What-If redo of our fav toon. For me MrX abolutely had to look and feel the same basic toon with some core powers - but MrX's background (and backstory) does make him a shape-shifting alien with a 100% scientific basis (he is essentially back from the future and nobody knows who he is, what he is and what he's doing here - hence the name).

Who or what is Ebon Hawk? Does he the best powers that express that concept? Could something in his background have altered (or mutated) his basic powers? Has his alter-ego somehow got to him and alterered him for you? Or maybe the Nouveau Ebon Hawk is his twisted alter ego and is Going Rogue?

The thing that would be fun for me is teaming with clearly similar versions of original Trepid toons and doing it all over again. The Warshade version of MrX is superb for that. He has some great team-friendly features (well TP mostly ;-)) and would make a great 'corner-man' for us - with Mess taking the punches (and sihing out, blast blasting away, Zos also punching out big time. We might be able to get Sparkz back and some other old-timers?

EDIT: an obvious idea is to do a brute or stalker versin of him?

X, there are 3 IOs with KB Protection global bonus:
1)Steadfast Protection (Resist IO), as Anna mentioned
2)Karma (Defence IO)
3)Blessing of the Zephyr (Universal Travel set)
All with -4mag as far as I remember. So using 2 of these in your build would give you a scrapper-like KB Protection. I'm not sure about their market values, but Karma & Steadfast Protection should be affordable. Blessing of the Zephyr, on the other hand, should be very expensive.

In addition to this, there is 1 IO set also providing KB Protection:
1)Kinetic Crash (KB Set): Using 4 IOs from this set on one power provides -3mag KB Protection.
Kinetic Crash IOs should be very cheap, but PB powers with KB effect are generally damage powers, so you might wanna slot damage SOs, instead of wasting 4 slots for KB IOs.

As for Trepids Nouveau, already re-created Blastor (Energy/Fire) twice. As Blastor Reborn (Ice/Elec) with less damage and more mez for PvP, as opposed to original Blastor having just damage but no mez :). And as Blastor Ascended (Psy/Energy) with better damage/mez balance for PvP, but this was all before Dev's killed PvP :). Besides, I got no slot for a new toon, but I can join you with Calibro if it's ok.

That's awesome Blast. Much appreciated. And would be great to see you any time with Calibro.

Hi Blast/guys, along these lines; are there any sets that provide mag-based (or similar) status effects protection? holds and stuns being the biggest problems. I can't see how I could get the whole Acrobatics set in for that - but similar to the Vet reward/travel power at 60 months can we also take Acrobatics, Whirlwind and those other top-level pool powers (instead of the lvl 14 travel power)?

Any advise on the set options along these lines would be really appreciated and/or what ever you're using for source reference these days Blast?

Can't comment on the Sets (Blast is the Oracle there)..

But I can be the bearer of bad news in that the 60 Month Vet reward (City Traveller) only changes the way you select travel powers, not the final power in those sets, so no change in how you get to pick Acrobatics, Whirlwind etc.

That would have been to good to be true. :D

PS have you tried unlocking the 4th pool power on any toon yet Ebon? I can't help wandering what happens if you unlock superjump at 6, say, do you then have to wait until lvl 14 for anything? And/or are you still forced to wait lvl 20 to unlock the 3rd/4th power?

There's no mez protection set bonus in the invention system as far as I know X, there's only mez resistance bonus, which reduces the duration of the effect on the toon. But since all passive toggles (I mean self-buffing toggles, any toggle debuffing the enemy or buffing teammates are off while mezzed) are still up while mezzed, so it's not a big issue anymore as it was in the past.

As for 4th tier powers, nothing has changed about them. They're still lvl20 powers and they're unlocked when 2 other powers in the same set are included in the build. 60th month vet reward only unlocks 4x level14 travel powers at level6.
