Yeah, I stopped playing my ill/rad controller ages ago, both when they
nerfed the hell out of her powers, and things got ridiculously tough
so she's pretty much parked at 41. I logged her on recently and tried
playing, I ran a carny mission and died 3 times trying to take on an
illusionist boss - which took I think an hour before I could take her
out finally. Not fun. Also had difficulty finding any groups at that
level doing anything interesting (I like TFs and other really
difficult stuff) She's on Virtue, although none of my other characters
are, so if you ever need a 41 ill/rad try looking me up (o.k. not sure
what info you'd need, her name is Clockwork Queen, but I never play
her). She's my only character 40+
My other high mid levels that are parked are a fire/devices blaster,
Samantha Ash, I believe some nerf or other hit her around 30, and
while she leveled incredibly fast, she just wasn't fun, pretty much
A 29 stone/fire tanker volcano girl (now something completely
different due to time not logged into her) - actually great fun, but I
got a bit irritated as I was suprised to find she did much better solo
than in groups (actually fairly true of my ill/rad controller too),
might have just been the groups or that I'm that good :).
A 32 robot/dark MM, iWar Black - Just got boring I guess, and my comp
couldn't handle MMs in groups, he also needs a respec. I think both of
those are on Justice
My new one is Mauldin on Freedom a 29 Stone/Willpower Brute, love him,
but I'd like to respec to tighten his build up a bit. I'm thinking of
paying the fee to move him to Virtue as I didn't realize freedom was
east coast, and I'm west, and I think I like the community on Virtue
or Justice better.
At least there is a way to move characters, even if you have to pay
through the nose to do it.
I keep wanting to try Superstrength/Willpower but I can't get a
concept I can stand. I created 3 in a row on virtue, Only got one out
of the zig, and I don't really like him either. I had a "Shoveler"
clone, but it doesn't really work without a shovel, a "Strong Man" -
but I couldn't stand looking a the bare chest, and they didn't have an
over one shoulder top I could find, and lastly I made The Dwead Piwate
Peanut as an ode to Fezzik, but that just doesn't seem very superish.
I've also got a dark/rad corruptor on Justice at 17, which I really
like, but she's no where near the fun of my brute, and a zombie/poison
mm at 12 on Virtue which I really like the concept on, but can't seem
to stand playing MMs anymore.
