Can we get an ETA on new abilities? These powers are stale....

    Thought the revamp was supposed to pave the way for new abilities...

    Are there really no iconic moves that can be added? Aren’t all powers already balanced/inline with each other? I mean that was the point of the revamp, right?

    Can’t you(dev’s) just add the iconic moves from the iconic legends characters to the iconic power menu?..., is it really that hard since every ability is supposedly inline with the others?

    And on a side note, I love how OP precision is now... :/

    And fellow forum members don’t use the “their understaffed” excuse cause it seems like they’ve been “understaffed” for years now...

    If you're wanting an ETA on new powers, then you're going to be disappointed. They have openly stated that they are not working on new powers at this time, so the ETA would be... not anywhere in the foreseeable future.

    It's not a matter of understaffed. It's a matter of priorities. Powersets didn't sell well enough to be worth the amount of work that they take. And since Iconic Powers are free and don't even really have an option to monetize, they definitely aren't going to be making them any money. It's PvE Episodes and Cosmetics for the foreseeable future. They're only doing what they believe is going to make them the most money, based on the metrics they've seen from past and current purchases.

    As much as I would like to see some powersets introduced (sound for example) I think we're at a good spot. We have 15 powers and 9 (?) or so weapons. Some games can only dream of that. I would much rather see them pour their resources into other things like PvP, the next episodes, new incentives for older content (like a sidekick system), and open worlds.

    Not saying this is what they must do, just my opinion as to what they should do.

    Absolutely. Plus, no powers or abilities are gender locked (unlike alot of MMOs), I think we are defenitley in a good spot. Sure we all want more powers but it's not really necessary.

    Really hope this means something is at least being thought of.

    That's the main reason I don't play much anymore. Most claim they're satisfied but they don't represent all of us.

    Abilities I wanna pitch for celestial are:

    Tenebrae - Summon a tentacle made of shadow to attack nearby enemies with dark lightning(Combos with Radiance).

    Hell's Grasp - Summon hands from the ground that that pin your enemies to the ground(Combos with Celestial Void).

    Gaurdian Angel/Sin Demon - Summons an angel to protect you in healer role. Summons a demon to attack enemies in damage role.

    Radiance - Unleash a burst of holy light stunning and burning nearby enemies.

    Celestial Void - Create a nebulous field around yourself that heals all allies within it while damaging and pushing enemies away.

    I like these suggestions...you could even add in shadow portal (works like the quantum teleport move)
