Integrated Tights Added to Males! Female Integrated Tights Options Expanded!

Take your costume game to the next level! With Issue 3: Highflyers!, male and female characters can take advantage of newly expanded integrated tights options. This advanced costuming feature allows players unprecedented power to mix and match over tights and under materials. With version 1.5 of this system, players can now layer skin-tight garments over a variety of under surfaces including stone, bioluminescence, chitin, and chainmail. And then choose which layer gets patterned!

Inherent Slots in Health and Stamina Powers

Back in the NC Live days, Paragon devs said, “We hear you! You want more power slots. We’re investigating ways to make this happen.” Though we’ll never know exactly how Paragon may have done this, we’ve expanded upon some stubs in the code to finish one avenue that gives everyone 4 additional slots for their builds in a way that we think makes sense to most every build out there.

At levels 8 and 16, all characters will automatically receive one free slot in their Health power. Stamina gets its free slots at 12 and 22.

To obtain these slots existing characters will need to use a respec. We are handing out free respecs to every character at the launch of issue 3, to use these respecs type /respec into the chat window. For more, watch this brief tutorial video by GM El Bee.

Quality of Life Changes

We even added some nice QoL that you are sure to love!

  • Team Transport Power: Heroes and Villains can now use their alignment merits & influence to call in a Longbow transport or Arachnos copter for a quick shuttle to their next mission destination. Charges can be purchased at the Hero and Villain alignment vendors.

  • Signature Summons Powers: Call in some big guns! Now 90% off! Signature Summons powers available at Hero and Villain Alignment vendors have had their price reduced from 25 to 2.5 million influence.

  • Fourth Power Tray: Add this 4th power tray added to the UI with all new commands for macro users.

  • Architect Entertainment :

    • Tick Cap Increase: Now you can have 99,999 tickets! That's 10x greater than before.
