Switch Gear When You Switch Roles!

    Devs, is it possible to have gear switch when you switch roles? and maybe even skill points... its gets kind of irritating to switch skill points and gear everytime you want to switch roles.... makes people wait on you to respec, and it can be timely if you switch a few times a day...

    especially if you are in a raid and people want to switch to alter strategies. Thanks!

    This is addressed in DLC8 Hall of Powers.

    At least partially. If I remember correctly when they discussed this in the pre-DLC6 pod casts the talked about styles and gear being tied into the functionality. Although it's been brought up repeatedly in the forums I don't recall a dev ever specifically saying that it would extend to SP loadouts. Obviously it would be great if it did.

    Secondly my impression, specifically in the lair amenity podcast where the commented on the suit amenity, was that these wouldn't so much as allow you to change on the fly as you would have to change from your lair (and/or HQ given the DLC8 connection).

    This is not gospel by any stretch of the imagination, I may have missed some specific comments by the dev staff on this functionality.

    What you said in the middle is true about the suit amenity. I saw it as well. Just hope it does not charge you to switch your load out but have like a 10-30 min cool down to counter the free of charge part.

    I don't know. To be honest I felt DLC8 should just be an update, unless it comes with a new power set.
    DLC should be new instances and possibly a new city once in a while, and 3 new power sets every year or so.
    Not dumb little features like bases and swapping out styles or whatever they're doing.

    Will come with a new power set if you did not know that. They basically said it when they talked about quantum powers unbalancing the 3 powers of each main roles since it's the 4th troll power.

    I would think that they'll add some content in the same way that DLC6 added the Ace/Strykers/Arkham/Steelworks stuff, which if done well goes a long way.

    Also there was a dev comment as the end of last year that the plan was to add as many Legends toons this year as last so I would be surprised not to see some in the DLC, although I think DLC9 will have the lion's share of those as well.

    They're Talking about having the armories included in the Hall of Powers DLC, So that's gonna be pretty awesome.

    The next dlc will probably be a few months away. With the new raids/alerts I'm constantly switching between controller and damage. Like literally get asked to dps one alert, then to troll another right after that.

    Maybe in game update 27 we can have a temporary solution like an addition to the menu that would let us automatically take all base weapon innates or vitalization innates, for example. That way if you want to respec to controller you would just click Base stats (middle 4-5 in each weapon tree), Vitalization, Cunning, Dom, Crit chance, Crit damage and they would all be allocated in each weapon tree. You do your movement points and put the extra straggler points where you want them and you're done. Would save a lot of time.

    I would love to see this. It wasn't so bad before but with these new innates it is. I can't stand having to respec every single day.

    It should be optional, I like to run challenges in healer role with dps gear and core strength.
  13. Jason Martin Dedicated Player

    They should make Gears change its status according with your role.

    exemple: you are in troller role, you gear gain stats of dominance, more vit.

    you back to dps, you lose the dominance, the vit back to it normal, your might and precision increases.

    Even as legendary member I think this should be part of an update, not DLC-exclusive.

    Agreed. I'm not legendary but I buy all the DLC since I can't be paying 15$ a month to this game.
