By The Fire

"The Ties That Bind"

Actresses relax by the fire in this issue of Lost Magazine! As Kate and Juliet, they played a huge part in the classic slice of Lost that was Left Behind, one of season three’s most exciting episodes. As well as the handcuffs that tethered them together, it turned out that life experiences, and love for Jack Shephard, connect these two vivacious women. In an exclusive joint interview, they look back at Left Behind, their time on the island so far, and season three’s thrilling ending! Actresses - Evangeline Lilly and Elizabeth Mitchell.

"Hostile Environment"

With the sun dissolving into the horizon, the sky is stained an ominous shade of red. The tranquility of the forest becomes an almost ethereal silence as figures move stealthily through the trees. But these are not the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. They are far more mysterious and have been on the island far longer. Some call them The Others. The Dharma Initiative called them the Hostiles. Meet the men behind the enigmatic Mikhail, Tom, Ethan, and Richard – actors Andrew Divoff, M.C. Gainey, William Mapother and Nestor Carbonell.

"Action Nations"

In this issue we interview Script Coordinator Gregg Nations, who, among other things, collates all the flashback and island timelines – if you love Lost, this guy’s job will make you wish you could use the magic box to swap places with him! But the behind-the-scenes coverage doesn’t stop there! Season three’s emotionally-charged episode The Brig brought the mysterious ship the Black Rock back into our lives. With exclusive pictures from Lost Sculptor Jim Van Houten, we take you into the heart of the jungle, and into Jim’s workshop!

Overview

Issue 13, titled Power and Responsibility is the most recent major revision to City of Heroes and City of Villains released on December 2, 2008. The title refers to Day Jobs, introduced with this patch. Other important additions include Multiple Builds, Supergroup base repricing, Merit Rewards, and more.

This article summarizes some of the major features in Issue 13. For more complete details, see the release date's patch notes.

Confirmed Content

Day Jobs (Offline Character Progression)

Main Article: Day Jobs

Scholar? Caregiver? City Official? Now when players log out of City of Heroes / Villains they’re just getting started! A character’s day job is determined by the actual in-game location from which he or she logs out. If players log out from a University their day job is considered to be a Scholar. If they log out from City Hall they're a City Official. The benefits are thematically appropriate to the location. For example, a City Official earns extra Influence, a Scholar is granted Salvage, a Caregiver is granted Health Regeneration Buffs, etc.

Once characters have accumulated the required amount of time for each Day Job, they are rewarded with the appropriate Day Job Badge and Title, increasing their “earnings” for that job. Multiple Badges can be combined to unlock Accolades and the ability to accumulate additional new rewards. Almost every location within Paragon City and the Rogue Isles has an associated Day Job, resulting in a wide selection of jobs and rewards!- Depending on where characters log out, they assume the role of the area as their day job. If they log out in a hospital, for example, they are working as doctors or nurses. When logging back in, characters receive certain bonuses and rewards according to their day jobs.

Multiple Builds

Main Article: Multiple Builds

Another character customization option and City of Heroes innovation, Issue 13 delivers the ability to have two different build-outs for each character, including which powers are selected and which Enhancements are slotted. With this feature it will now be possible for all characters to diversify their game experience by visiting any Trainer and switching the entire build of their character to an alternate one. You can use this separate build for whatever you like. If you wish to use different power selections for soloing and groups, you can do that. This even makes it possible to have different IO sets slotted for PvP and PvE. This new system gives characters the added depth and flexibility to tackle any challenge!

New Powersets

  • Shield Defense Heft a Shield for Heroic or Villainous Ends! This new powerset brings a classic power to City of Heroes: Shields! Now, you can arm Tankers, Scrappers and Brutes with a powerful shield to protect themselves and their allies.
  • Pain Domination - Villains can now bend the power of pain to serve their own ends! Those playing a Corruptor or Mastermind have access to this new powerset. The antithesis of the Hero healing powerset “Empathy,” Pain Domination brings parity between Heroes and Villains with a distinctively evil flair.

Leveling Pact

Main Article: Leveling Pact

A new innovation to MMOs, this system allows you and a friend to create new characters and have your XP be permanently in sync, whether both characters are online or not. You will always be the same level, even if your friend plays ten times more often than you do! It's sort of like "Extreme Sidekicking."

The Merit Rewards System

Main Article: Merit Rewards

A new game system that allows players to earn tokens by completing Trials, Task Forces, Strike Forces, Raids, Giant Monsters, and Ouroboros. The most challenging and time consuming tasks grant the most reward tokens, which can be redeemed throughout Hero and Villain zones for recipes, enhancements, salvage, costume pieces, badges, inspirations and other game items. ]] System/Flashback

Villain Patron Power Respec

Villains level 40 and above can respec (re-select) their Patron Powers, offering the same flexibility that heroes are afforded with Ancillary Powers.

Supergroup Base Repricing

Base Salvage is being replaced with Invention Salvage and all Base room and item prices are being adjusted to more accessible levels. Remaining base salvage can be traded in for invention salvage, or can continue to be stored in base and personal storage.

PvE and PvP Powers Rebalancing

There are a wide selection of PvE (Player vs. Environment) and PvP (Player vs. Player) related power changes in Issue 13. These changes focus on either Quality of Life issues or on powers which were not quite in balance with others.

New Cimerora Missions

New Hero and Villain story arcs expand upon the history and lore, and delve into the players and politics of Cimerora.

Other features

  • The badge interface has gotten a revamp, separating the badges out into much smaller categories. Additionally, almost all badges now have a progress bar and hints on how to gain the badges. Some badges will not show a hint or progress bar until you have a certain percentage filled.
  • New Costume Sets (including the ability to save and load costumes), Zone Refinements, and more!
  • Pocket D now has a teleport beacon and base access.
  • Players can now disable Experience gains. This setting can be toggled at will and is in the Options menu.
