Ask Cryptic -

Cryptic Studios has posted another edition of Ask Cryptic, where they answer questions from the community about Champions Online.

In the past it was mentioned that we would have animated tails as costume pieces. Now, a staple of many strong tailed characters has been to use that tail as a melee weapon. As an obvious enthusiast of tailed critters, will there be a way to get tail based attacks into the basic powers such as a might based tail strike? What about other obscure melee attacks? IE: Biting, pinching (yes, pinching) 'cheap shots,' eye jabs, slapping, headbutts? (BronzeRaptor)

Currently all costume pieces are aesthetic parts of the costume, because we want players to visualize the kinds of characters they want – claws, fins, capes, any type of hero aspect, etc. In this case the tails are more of a costume part and not part of the core character morphology. That’s not to say we’re never going to have it. We’d love to put in these types of things, but it really depends on available technology. So, you might see them in the future sometime, but not right now.
