Ask Cryptic

Ask Cryptic -

In the most recent edition of Ask Cryptic, the devs behind Champions Online answer questions about power emanation points, player housing, nemeses, and more.

Will we be able to use weapons to use our powers or will we be stuck with shooting fire from our hands? (timtheory)

There are a couple different ways that we address that: one is emanation points. You can choose where your power comes from. Say you’re using a force beam and you want it to come from your eyes, or your hands, or other different areas. That’s if you want to be doing it without weapons and want it built into your character concept. There’s also a system that we call power replaces that allows you to do it with weapons. You can create items that still use your powers, but replace where they come from. Sometimes they can also give you new powers. If I have a sword melee power and normally use a broadsword, a fiery katana can suddenly drop in the world and I could now use that to replace my normal sword. It doesn’t change the powers – or attacks – I use, but it may provide a different look, or it may have inherent abilities with it.
