Soloing a human form Peacebringer?

I've played most of the other ATs many many times since CoH was in beta over a decade ago. Never did much with Peacebringers though. What should I be prepared for if I run a human form only PB solo, from 0 to 50? I'm used to blasters, scrappers, corr


Best Mastermind meta

Hey all, in my first month back since playing as a teen in 06/07. I mained a Robot/Shield MM back then and I remember loving it and loving the MM strategy play style in general. Having come back, I've got myself a blaster, scrapper and sentinel whi

Good Tanky and High Damage Brute OR Tank?

A friend is trying to put together a character that is either a Brute or a Tank, and that has high survivability and great damage. This character will lead a team where defense buffs, heals, and enemy debuffs are readily available. He has tried a SS

Servers down?

Me and the roomie tried to log on a couple of minutes ago and 4 of the servers were down and when we tried to log onto Torchbearer, it froze the game and we had to cad that. I was hoping to find something online about what's going on but alas! I've f


Sentinel uncertainty

I really want to get a sentinel to 50 as my next toon. I love the archetype, but usually fizzle out around the late 20s. I’ve played mostly resist based sets, which might be which I’m lukewarm. I want to build a sentinel that can rock through so


Is AE farming supposed to be a thing? Some thoughts from a new player.

So I'm completely new to CoH. I started some months ago when a friend begged me to play with them. Even though the servers were incredibly laggy it was some of the most fun I've had in an MMO. We were able to form a full group within minutes because

Looking to make an assault rifle character and am wondering what secondary pairings and archetypes everyone has found success with. Let’s hear it!


Private Server - Exploration badges not working

I'm running a private version of i25 and recently had to migrate the server to a new virtual machine. After the migraiton, it looks like exploration badges aren't issuing out to characters at all. I've already tried restarting everything. Could anyon


Does anyone have any experience/knowledge of the Unity server?

Over the weekend in trying to get back in the game, I reached out here and got some great feedback as a server to pick. I did end up choosing Homecoming, but all weekend I spent getting the game freezing up every 2 minutes. So until I figure out wh


So weird playing a Stalker now vs. then.

I mained an Energy Melee/Ninjutsu Stalker back when CoV first launched and remember working so hard to get them to a good place, and still they were such a glass cannon one or two bad RNGs away from the hospital, especially vs. Rikti. Also so much wa


Opinions on Presence in Tanks Instead of Epics

Hey all, I noticed the (new I think?) Unrelenting power in Presence. Context: Homecoming, Stone/Titan tank. What do you all think about this reasoning: **Presence** Pacify = meh Intimidate+Invoke Panic = 6 mag terror on a boss, 3 on others Unre


ClawDA Stalker build help

The wife is sitting at 47 now, we have never played a /DA or a stalker for that matter. Have no idea how to slot especially Oppressive and Cloak of fear. I see everyone saying get some kind of proc for Dark regeneration. Is the leadership pool or fi


Fortunata Build Help

I'm looking to build my first Fortunata, I never did get one to 50 on live so this is my chance. All of my characters are fully built with set IOs which I'm pretty good on building but I have heard that a properly build Fort on a Hami-O build is amaz


Location of zone event scripts

I've been digging around in the folders for my home server, running the original i25 content, and enjoy having an event running (currently running the "holiday" event). The Project: Ouroboros wiki has a good FAQ on how to start and stop the various e

Cross post from Homecoming Forums: Ok...I've tried this on my own and have also requested for help on Discord to no avail (Aside from one person whom has been awesome for bouncing ideas off of). So I thought to myself, *What is the point of a co


Everyone is bad at statistics: Misconceptions about how combat works

Hi. I'm Gulbasaur. You may remember me from such posts as "that one where he compared the servers without obvious bias" or "enthusiastic ramblings about the epic archetypes". Please, no autographs. I used to teach mathematics. Not super high level,

Katana/??? Secondary Scrapper Tips/Builds?

I've tried a bit Kat/Bio, but it seemed too frail to properly solo AVs/GMs. I considered Kat/Willpower or Kat/Dark, which are Katana secondary staples, but what about Elec Armor. I've heard it is good, but I eas mostly considering it due to theme rea


Rad/Fire vs Spines/Fire vs SS/Fire Brutes: Thoughts + Fire Farms Testing

So there has been a lot of discussion about which build is best. I decided to test it for myself by making one of each brute and then running them through the same farm/circumstances to see which I thought was better. ***My baselines:*** I investe
