New powers...Weak and lacking imagination.

    That is fact. I love the visuals of fires but I'm not going to use a power which hinders others at going forward at the end game stage. Most of the times you do not die because you're bad or because you slipped up, it simply isn't able to survive at that stage. Healers are overworked and can just do as much but it doesn't change the fact that fire is a broken power. The DPS side is totally fine, but that's not the main role or why you should be fire in the first place.

    I have fire tanked most all of the content in game and have done so beautifully. Fire tanking is probably the hardest tank power to get off right. It's basically hard mode tanking. But it's my favorite. And I'm not that bad at it!

    I know that you can pull it off, I did that too, but we're not the norm Feenicks :p

    Different stroke for different folks :)

    I get what you're saying, not everyone is a gigantic lantern fan, and I try to understand that :)

    But, I feel like there should be just one more lantern power, make it a healer, and then I don't care what happens to lanterns. Just gotta keep hoping :D

    In reply to the thread title ... I have been wanting a standard physical tank since the day I started playing this game 3 years ago ...

    When I saw my only chances to act like my favorite super hero (superman) was ice or fire I was a bit disappointed... Earth came out snd although it was close it's still not physical tank....

    I for one think this is a great way of delivering to us the people who wanted a physical super strength style power set.... I never wanted to be a superman clone to the T anyway I'll enjoy this .... Unless if we get a kinetic energy tank in the future then I'll have some deciding to do ..... For me this isnt unimaginative ...

    If that is the case then you can also make a wind power set by picking up the powers through the flight movement mode... and with your line of thinking wouldn't that be the same as wind?

    This game will not die when the PS3 is cut.

    Actually the opposite, this game comes closer to death the longer the PS3 is held onto.

    Someone mentioned on here that the Devs explained why a water power can't happen and I'm curious to know what did he say about the idea of a water power and why it can't happen, is there a link or can someone explain it to me, please, thanks. :)
  17. GregDawe New Player

    Don't have the link, but all everyone seems to be saying is that it had something to do with the animations and it's similarities to ice making it hard to pull off well.

    If that is it, and it may not be all, but if that is the only reason, I don't buy it.
    I want a water set more than anything else.
  18. GregDawe New Player

    I agree, it feels unfinished now that there are 2/3 supp roles in the theme.
    I am not at all saying that it should be apart of what was released yesterday.
    Now looking back, I am blaming the PS3's capabilities for the SEEMINGLY simplistic nature of these new powers.
    Bring in Lantern healers, Shadow, Water ect. when they have untied their hands of the PS3 so that the powers are as visually awesome as the deserve to be.
