Gadgets Power Revisions!
With Game Update 40, we have made improvements to Gadgets!  The Gadgets power set now has new damage mechanic improvements that ensures Gadgets has the same damage potential as Weapon Mastery, combo powers (Light/Celestial/Rage), DoT Powers (Nature/Electricity), channel and cast powers (Fire ), and Pet powers (Sorcery/Earth).

Gadgets users can now use a number of new mechanics centered around "Advanced Interactions" to cause superior damage output. Specific changes are outlined in the notes below.

Rare Style Vendor Update!
With Game Update 40 we have added new items (existing styles) to the Rare Style Vendor. All of these items will cost 70 Marks of Fury. The Rare Style Vendor, Vending Unit 22, is located in the player's Headquarters. Please see the notes below for a full list of items added.

Weapon Mastery Style Selection!
Players may now select appearance styles for Weapon Mastery combo weapons!

Players have always been able to choose the appearance of their primary weapon through the Style UI. With this new feature, players will also be able to choose the appearance of their Weapon Mastery combo weapons through the Style UI. When the player accesses the Style UI with a primary weapon equipped for which they have unlocked Weapon Mastery, he or she will see two additional appearance categories in the list for the two related combo weapon types.

The combinations are unique per primary weapon, meaning that Brawling into Two-Hand can be different from Shield into Two-Hand. By setting the Mastery Weapon style option, you are not setting your actual style for the primary weapon nor are they shared between the combos.

With this change, primary weapon styles will persist on logout as well.

Note: PS3 Players will be able to change their Weapon Mastery styles and see their choices; however other players will always see the Default weapons displayed. This is a PS3 only constraint.

New Mainframe Boost!
With GU40 we are adding a new Boost column to the Base Mainframe. This means new upgrades to all of our Sidekicks, Back-Up, Orbital Strikes, Supply Drops, and Tactical Mods at a price of 15,625 Marks of Triumph.

Note: Boost III does not require a new Generator Cell level. It will use the same level that powers Boost II.

Prestige Messaging Improvements
Players in a League will now be able to access a Prestige Report from the control panel in their personal bases to find out how much Prestige is being generated by that base for their League. Simply select that option and view the report in the text field at the top of the menu!

Prestige is earned from decorations and amenities per base so players will have to visit each of the bases they own once per week to collect that amount. Prestige earned by mainframe upgrades, generator mods, and power level are shared by all bases and will be collected only with the first base you visit that week.

Mainframe Boost III
With GU40 we are adding a new Boost column to the Base Mainframe. This means new upgrades to all of our Sidekicks, Back-Up, Orbital Strikes, Supply Drops, and Tactical Mods at a price of 15625 Marks of Triumph. I’ll go into each of them briefly below.

Sidekick:

  • A player can purchase the "Boost III" upgrade for their Sidekick/Accomplice at their mainframe. *Purchasing this increases the type of Sidekick/Accomplice that is summoned from an uplink device that a player can acquire at their dispenser.
  • All versions of Boost III Sidekick/Accomplice wear a split cape
  • They now restore more power and heal you for more than Boost II versions
  • The first time you get in combat after they are summoned they will put a damage absorption shield on themselves and you

Back-Up:

  • A player can purchase the "Boost III" upgrade for their Henchmen/Back Up at their mainframe. Purchasing this increases the type of Henchmen/Back Up that is summoned from an uplink device that a player can acquire at their dispenser.
  • All versions of Boost III Henchmen / Back Up will perform a high damage strike, Heavy Blast, when initially called. This is one time high damage ability, that all three henchmen team up for, up to two seconds after cast.
  • They are identical in appearance to previous tiers.
  • The first time you get in combat after they are summoned they will all focus a single target and perform a large beam attack.

Orbital Strike:

  • A player can purchase the Boost III upgrade for their Orbital Strike at their mainframe. *Purchasing this increases the potency and damage delivered from an uplink device that a player can acquire at their dispenser.
  • Orbital Strike will now damage NPCs differently based on their Rank.
  • Players and NPC Minions will now be damaged for a standard amount.
  • NPC Matches and Others will now be damaged heavily, even more than Players or Minions.
  • NPC Bosses will be damaged the heaviest. Using an orbital strike on a boss now will seriously hurt your target.

Supply Drop:

  • A player can purchase the Boost III upgrade for their Supply Drop at their mainframe. Purchasing this increases the Healing and Power Healing delivered from an uplink device that a player can acquire at their dispenser.
  • Boost III will now look different visually by adding a fifth orb to the field around you. This will be seen when using the uplink device and the third boost is enabled.
  • Supply Drops do a large Power and Health heal immediately, and continue to heal you and your power bar over time for 12 seconds. This has been increased from Boost II.

Tactical Mods:

  • Absorption Adapter V - Weapon attacks have a chance to activate a shield, reducing damage by 75% until 2864 damage is prevented. This effect may only occur once every 60 seconds.
  • Blast Adapter V - Weapon attacks have a chance to blast your target and five other nearby enemies for additional damage. This effect may only occur once every 60 seconds.
  • Absorption Adapter V - Weapon attacks have a chance to heal you and three other group members. This effect may only occur once every 60 seconds.
