Week in review

Not much going on this weekend, game-wise.
Since updating levels last week, Hype’s dinged 24, 25, and 26. One more and he ties with Strategist, whom he will no doubt pass to become my second-highest-level character.
Biggest problem with Hype and Syn is that we want to do every single Task Force and the 24-32 level range has… FOUR. One of which (Hess) you have to qualify to do by hitting all the Striga content. And each one will probably come close to dinging us… and at the same time we need to cozy up to the contact that sells Mutie enhancements, so we need to do HIS stuff, and I want to do the Freaklypics arc… gah…
So we’re basically ignoring all but two of our contacts at this point: Syn’s doing the the Striga guy and I’m doing the Mutie guy and we’re just trying not to out-level them before we get them finished up.
The problem with never rarely getting debt is that it’s hard not to miss content because you’re outleveling it. It’s REALLY hard if you try to hit all the Task Forces.
I think it would be flat-out impossible, without exemping, for any one character to do all the TF’s and storyarcs in the game until they exlusively solo’d their missions.
Also, dinged 44 with Hang Time and picked up Repulsion bubble, just cuz it’s funny and might be occassionally useful against bosses or something and I want Force of Nature for my last powah, so I had to take either that or Temp Invul, which… come on… as squishy as I am, 20% damage reduction isn’t going to do anything. Going to try to hold at 44 for a bit, cuz I’m organizing the Shadow Shard TF and I’m worried about leveling past my 40-44 contacts. I think I need to dial down to Heroic just so I get less XP from my personal missions. Hmm.
Lee always say that the 40+ game was fraught with ‘I’m all out of missions and I can’t get new contacts’, but I don’t have that problem — I’m afraid I’m going to level past someone before I finish their arcs — this has come about becuase I’m usually running other peoples stuff.
So, weirdly, I have similar problems with both Hype and Hang… trying not to outlevel the content.


  1. Yes…that was the big push I had with Puck this weekend.
    I had three story arcs that I had leveled out of, but I was far enough in to them that I could keep getting the missions. So, here I was trucking along at 27/28 and taking on 24/25’s A real ego boost…which paid me back big time when Teaming with Rayne on a timed mission. We had succeded in disarming the two bombs, rescued the woman, found the items we were supposed to find, but ran out of time trying to fight the last bunch of DE’s. One of the problems was that none of the DE’s that we found showed up as a Boss…Two deathes incured trying to find the boss….and the big red FAILED. Soooooo very nice of the Dev’s to include that at the end. The good part was Rayne had a kill Dr. Vazh to to which got rid of 3/4 of my debt.

  2. Looking at the Story arcs page, I can see what you mean. Looks like Puck will concentrait on the Striga SA when I’m on as her next time.
