Not that I'm gonna become a badge hunter or anything...yet. But, recently I respec'd Ti Gou with "super jump" instead of "super speed". One, it fits more with the character theme. And two, I got tired of running into walls at super speed.

Once I got the power, I was jumping around Faultline and decided to jump through a hoop. Just like the dogs do in the circus.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive this badge.

So, I'm thinking about adjusting the difficulty settings for at least my two highest-level characters. Probably to "Rugged" and "Vicious". That means in instanced missions, I'll face enemies one or two levels higher than me, though in numbers equivalent for a solo mission. I'll face "Bosses" instead of "Lieutenants".

It's not so much that I've gotten that good at the game, but I think I'll need more challenging opponents in order to get more XP.

A solid and inprudent plan. :unnod:

I heartily approve. As your abilities expand and become stronger bosses become less of a challenge. They can still get you but it's not as :ohnoes: as in earlier levels. As you are in the Faultline content you may have noticed the stray Elite Boss or five. They are still a challenge even for those prepared for and have defenses (or offenses) that counter them.

I continue to offer my services as your stalwart assistant through any troubling times you may encounter.

Thanks BrotherMan! I need to get over my hesitancy in chatting at you whenever I see you online. I've not encountered any missions for which I need help.

Though, Tian Shang Lung, had a particularly nasty encounter with The Lost on Mercy Island recently. Luckily, she has debt protection and was none the worse for wear. Same can't be said for The Lost, however.

Speaking of Tian Shang Lung, she recently acquired eight merit points and has no idea what to get for herself. The Merit Vendor has such pretty shiny things for sale.

While researching Merit Rewards on Paragon Wiki, I discovered that the Positron TF is suitable for a duo. Ti Gou is very interested. Very interested.

BTW: I submitted an application over at Guardians of the Golden Age for Dog O'War, Mr JJ Jingles, Kassai and the Crimson Bantam. Wish me luck!

I've just submitted an application to The Paragons. Probably want to play with The Loyal Guardsmen characters, particularly Ti Gou. And Shan Lau Hu (Lightning Tiger).

I look for you when I expect to be on a team. A lot of the time I'm just puttering around solo.

Old joke: If you find them are they still Lost? Amirite?

I recommend saving them for the really big shinies.

Possible, yes. But consider that the wiki also states:

Wiki
The Positron Task Force is considered by many to be one of the longest and most arduous Task Forces in the game. The devs have stated that it was originally intended to be two arcs, but that it was merged into one single arc because the tech did not exist at that point for a single contact to kick off two.


Even if one is level capped to level 14, this Task Force is a pain in the ass. Hero side it is second only to the Augustine Task Force in length of time to accomplish.

I think I'm supposed to know what those are but I don't recall how I found out. At least, that's the in-world explanation I'm willing to let loose.

If I haven't yet, I recommend Web of Arachnos and The Freedom Phalanx as light reading material. Not imperative to your adventures in Paragon but some good back story on canon characters.

Another useful thing: Mid's Hero & Villain Planner

For those times when you can't get into the game but want to pretend you can! Also, helps you decide before hand what powers are available at what level and what they do. (Requires the .NET 2.0 framework to be installed.)

The Daunt- or Athem- nights can be all rp or teaming and sometimes both.
Kassai has submitted her application to the Dauntless.

So, Brotherman, do I have you to thank for pointing the Dauntless towards my VirtueVerse page?

My interview with them is scheduled for Saturday at 9pm EST.

I am frickin' nervous.

As far as I know that is totally your doing. And there is no reason to be nervous. They promised me they'd be gentle. :unnod:

I was totally anxious for my interview too; expecting something akin to a job interview with multiple interrogators and what-have-you. There'll be one inquisitrix and n number of hangers-on. It was one of the best times I've had role playing. So that's my advice. Relax, have fun and let your character be herself.

Reminds me of the "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" parodies by itsjustsomerandomguy on YouTube.
