How's the damage output of a Human-form Peacebringer?

If I dislike the Nova squid look, and would prefer to stay in my designed human form throughout the entire game, how much of a hit to my DPS would I be taking? How does the ranged blast damage of a human-form Peacebringer compare to say a Sentinel,


Homecoming Patch Notes for April 1st, 2020 - Take Your Child to Work Day!


Buttons and menu settings frozen?

Hello. I just started this game, and first of all, holy shit the character customization is amazing. But I'm having trouble with some of it. Sometimes when I customize controls or video/audio settings, it won't let me cancel out of it. And now after


Base help?

Last night I placed a fish school in my base. I immediately saw that it was one level too high, swimming in circles in the air. CtrlZ couldn't take it back. I crisscrossed the area trying to find the placement gump to select it and delete, I couldn't


Can I make Tequila point towards different folders depending on which server I want to play?

I play on Homecoming and Rebirth, and often hop between the two in the same gaming session. As the code bases diverge, it's taking increasingly long to log out, swap manifests, and log back in. Is there a way to point Tequila at different folders for


Homecoming Patch Notes for March 31st, 2020: Issue 26, Page 5 is live!


What am I doing wrong?

So I did some research on good solo characters on the interwebs and went with a War Mace/Willpower Brute as my main (or as much a main as an altaholic can have). I chose this because brutes are supposed to have good survivability and reasonable dama


Building a hero that's all SHARKS, all the time

Hi guys. So I have an odd request. I've been playing an earth/nature controller on the Everlasting server that is heckin fun to play. It just has one downside, however.... NO SHARKS! It greatly infuriates me that it's the one AT in the whole game tha


Being Invisible(graphically)

Just an idea I've had, and maybe it's just me, but....anyone else feel like an option should be had that makes stealth/invisibility not graphically make your toon disappear? Just sucks to make a neat-looking toon and then stealth makes that masterpie


Is the game PTP or PTW to an extent?

With all the free time i have now I was curious about getting into this even though I havent played the original. Are there any basic things such as powers that require payment for access like DCUO? I know it's pretty ambitious to expect it to be com


Any interest in a ARPG style server?

ATs, powersets, and mob density would be rebalanced around more AoEs and self-sufficiency, and IOs would drop directly instead of needing to be crafted. Anyone else think this would be a cool idea?


Is Homecoming Populated?

So I have considered playing the relaunch? Is it populated with many other players?

Coming back to Homecoming

First it's crazy that Homecoming is still around, very happy to see it! It's been 270 days since I last logged in and I cant remember anything lol. Where do I go to clear out the cobwebs? Any guides or review materials? Got some awesome toons my past


MIDS copy paste build on Mac


MIDS / Pines / Hero Designer ... Filling entire enhancement slot shortcut

Is there a keyboard shortcut to fill a power's slots with all from one set? (instead of single clicking each one)


Letting you know the reunion server just went down for Homecoming. Was doing some AE Missions when it happened mid-loading screen. Server status confirms, any additional info linked below.

Safely skippable quest lines for RP reasons?

Hello, I played CoH on and off back when it was live but never got very far due to sever altoholism. :P I started playing on Homecoming recently and I was thrilled to discover that this game has lost none of its magic! Speaking of magic, I have a


Necro/Storm MM Questions/Advice

So I've built one, any slotting advice on the pets looking at Lich specifically.  I know Necro is low AOE, so that's why I took Storm to balance plus its part of the concept for the toon. I've never played either set, so help on slotting pets, power


I made and played "Bad/Gimmicky/Unpopular" toons to really see how fun they could be.

One thing I absolutely love about this game is how casual it can be, and how super challenging it can be if you set yourself restrictions (Try Katie Hannon on +4 if you don't believe me). But between Issue 2 and Going Rogue, I only had one max l


Has anyone found a use for Repel?

Because heck if I can - it won't take the Overwhelming Force knockdown proc, so I can't use it to run in and take some of the edge off, the radius is too small to try and use it for knockback herding and it doesn't seem to stop anyone from running up


Hasten with claws?

So I recently started a claws/super reflexes brute and I was wondering if I should pick up hasten or if the cooldowns are already fast enough without it in claws.


I25 Create VMWare 15 Virtual Machine - Client Issue

I installed the I25 Create VMWare 15 Virtual Machine from ourodev and have it working on my internal Lan. However, when I installed the client on my external laptop I get an error about updated graphic drivers. I am using the COH Server 2012r2 i2
