Have to craft but yeah, converters work the same as the live version but are much easier to get. 1 to convert to same rarity, two to same type, three within set.

So close yet so far.....I feel your pain.

Overall the game is running well

AE exp was cut by half due to all the farming and crashes, not sure if they fixed it yet

Arena server is unavailable....thus blocking access to o a significant amount of badges

Ski lodge was open last I looked. But winter event is not on

It looks like you can queue up and run the summer blockbuster event but have not tried it. Yet.

The market....well some recipes are appearing and last I checked there is one of each of the pvp is that boosts defense by three for sale at each level....why? It doesn't take a lot of merits to get one from the vendor.  Overall there appears to be on be a lot of salvage selling and recipes are slowly loading up

Game is tricky when you are not at defense cap

Supergroup bases  you can register right away.
Prestige no longer needed
All base items unlocked
No restrictions on which items can go where,.

So for something quick, activate your base, get the biggest lot, and you entrance room can have a craft table fo invention, salvage and enhancement storage bins, put a small room next to o it with a teleporter with the pocket d beacon.

Now you can warp to pocket d, use their vault, merit vendor, tailor,  trainer, and type /auctionhouse to bring up the market, you cannot use that command in base or missions.

Stay in pocket for an hour to get fhe vip badge and pocket d teleport power.

Also only one hour in each pvp zone to get the badge for that zone.

Day job required time reduced.

Must be L14 to enter ouroborus portal, must be exposed to time travel to get the power.

Sister psyche taskforce in the ouroborus crystal menu

Statesman is dead.

Taskforces all appear to be running.

Visit nul the gull for quick alignment change

I'm following some of this advice.  Set up a base with a big plot.  (A guy thing...)  Got enhancement table.  Salvage racks.  An inspire machine.  Not sure how that works but I put one in.

TP room next door...with Pocket D and the usual places like Atlas, Steel, Talos, Bricks etc...and the hard to get tos like P.Isle and Striga.

That's about it.

I'll start putting enhances etc. in storage for IO crafting later.

This is the first ever build where I have made Inventions L30s-35s.  Cost a few million.  But I don't have to upgrade them.

(I've had the more specialised IO sets in the past.  But never did the general 'training origin' style invention sets.  Slightly more than standard SOs...are the generic IOs.  Can't complain.  Don't have to think about them until L47-ish.)

Bought the recipes.  Made them.  Quite cheaply in the main.  Just the damage and end mods that cost a bit more.

Good stuff.

Azrael.

I have a convertor.  I haven't used that feature yet.  So, I can use a convertor to convert from IO recipe to another?  :o  So rather than buying IO Kismet Acc, I can just make it from another?

Sonic/Martial arts.  As a blaster/blapper?  Ki Punch.  That's a new punch, not heard of that one before.  Not in the MA scrapper set?  I do like different melee sets.  The more variety the better.

Azrael.

If you haven't already figured it out.  In-set changes are 3 converters each.  For example, if you have a  Numina Heal/Recharge and you want Numina Regen/+Recovery you can spend 3 converters to re-roll in set for a chance at the Enchantment you want.  It's random, but so far I haven't had to spend more than 12 to get the exact piece I want.

You can also re-roll based on rarity.  For an Uncommon or Rare recipe, this would be difficult I imagine because of the sheer amount of recipes.  It is great for purple recipes, or AT IO' though.  My example was Hetacombs into Ragnorak.  It took about 8 rolls, of 1 Converter each, to get Ragnorak set.  It re-rolls randomly too.  So in my example, I had a Hetacomb: Damage/Accuracy, when it re-rolled to Ragnorak finally it was just Ragnorak: Damage.  It has a chance to re-roll for any IO Set of the same Rarity, except for the current one you are in.  Hetacomb would never re-roll as another Hetacomb.

The third option I am a little unclear still my self, but I believe you keep the Category regardless of rarity.  I think this means if you had a Smashing Haymaker IO set, you could re-roll at it a chance for a Kinetic Combat set.  This one costs 2 converters, and I currently haven't used it.  But it seems good if you have a bunch of an IO Set type (Melee, Healing, Defense) but not the not exact IO Set you actually need.

Also, don't forget the Reward Merit prices are way cheaper.  100 for Very Rare, 50 For Rare, 20 for uncommon.  For the market, you can generally underbid a decent amount on the market and still get what you need.  I was often bidding 400k on 5,000,000 recipes and getting them.  Generally, if something has over 20 copies for sale, I underbid by at least half of what the last successful bid was.  It doesn't always work, but it works more often than you would expect.  You may have to wait a few days though.

One question: Can I farm Architect on +4/x8 again, yet?  : D

OK two.. Can I do it with my old guys? Or do I have to reroll?

Two questions, one answer: yes, but only if you can handle +4/x8 with your level one.

Reminds me of a true story, Blue Steel never even trained up past level one.

Because he didn't need to.

Two reactions: 1) ohhhh a challenge (impossible, but still, those can be the most... luring). 2. I can only be level 1??? That's not a horrible thing, actually.. Even if it is possible, can we please not level our toons until, like, November...?

I still haven't taken the time to find out what's going on, yet.. I will. Feel free to fill me and other cluelessnesses in, in the meanwhile  : ) I promise to look it up for myself soon.

New challenge - try to stay level one (and alive) as long as possible while fighting +4/8 without turning XP off. Probably means you can't finish off anything. Try to beat Xev's time.

Come on, we all know Blue Steel is cheating the system by using an impossible powerset combination.
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

Well I discovered last night that not only can any level seem able to start taskforces and trials but if an L50 starts something like the abandoned sewer trial or the Eden trial,the first missions of each will be a breeze as they are sweeps of the area and those targets do not change levels to match an L50

But the targets in the mission will have become 50s.  That being said though, while my teammates we're not incarnates, being an incarnate with the ion blast was fun to watch as devouring earth enemies would explode into rocks and crystals.

You can be level 50, but you start at level 1 again.  It seems like we won't be getting our old characters back.  I think the decision was using the character database might make NCSoft more likely to do something.  Other than that there are a few different servers up.  The most popular is Homecoming I would say but there are other options, especially as of lately.  Although I have my roots dug in pretty deep on HC.

Liberty (LB...) server originally, here. (Ukase, your world is back!)

I was prepared to level again if the game ever came back. The topic came up even before the shutdown, I think. My attitude was: Did it once, can do it again. Luckily I think I still even have my pertinent Mids files and at least 1 screenie with one of my main's accolades and abilities and all that - so I should be able to carbon copy at least 1 of my mains. I remember what the other ones look like and can probably remember their builds eventually, too.

Well, hmmm. Wow. I've not got the gametime to find out how to get back on and to get back on and play, right now, but, umm. wow. Yeah. Will definitely be doing that asap.

Thanks for filling me in! Amazing news.

Ummm about those mids files. You're probably going to want to trash those and start over. There are new sets that outperform a lot of the old standbys, and work at every level to boot. And everything's easier to get as well.

Umm... new Enhancement Sets?

Everything I've seen shows the same ones that were Old Live.

Before the game went dark the original devs added a whole bunch of new Enhancements and Enhancement upgrades as part of Premium and Power Packs.

Yes, there are new sets. See these patch notes for changes since I24.

I'm excited to try Sudden Acceleration!
