Overview

Contents

Super Reflexes is one of the powersets. It is a Scrapper secondary powerset in City of Heroes, a Stalker secondary powerset in City of Villains, and as of Issue 12 a Brute secondary powerset in City of Villains.

Your Super Reflexes and acute senses allow you to react deftly to avoid danger. Regardless of what comes at you, Super Reflexes simply allow you to avoid the attack. The type of weapon or attack used against you is irrelevant. So swords, bullets, fire, energy, even psionic attacks can be avoided. Super Reflexes focuses on different techniques. Avoiding melee attacks is different than avoiding ranged attacks or even area-of-effect attacks. Your weakness is your opponents accuracy.

Hide makes you almost impossible to detect. When properly 'Hidden', a Stalker can pull off Critical hits with his attacks, and even land a massive 'Assassin's Strike' with an Assassin's power. When you attack or are damaged while using this power, you will be discovered. Even if discovered, you are hard to see and retain some bonus to Defense. Unlike most stealth powers, Hide can be used at the same time as other Concealment powers, giving you even greater stealth capability. Very low Endurance cost.
