Ask Cryptic: Supernatural Review

Ask Cryptic: Supernatural Review - Champions Online -

The latest edition of Ask Cryptic for Champions Online features questions from the community regarding the upcoming review of the Supernatural power set.

Q: UVee: Since there are more claw powers being added, I'm guessing one will be Tier 0 to go along with the melee energy builder of Supernatural (currently we have the melee energy builder and the ranged chain power as defaults). Will we also see a new energy builder for the chain sets, maybe not now, but in the future? Also with this, when creating a new character will we get a choice of "Infernal" (chains) or "Bestial" (claws) when selecting a framework or will it remain just as "Supernatural"?

A: Ame: Yes to pretty much all of these questions. You will be able to choose Infernal Supernatural or Bestial Supernatural at character creation. Bestial uses Bestial Fury, and Infernal has a new ranged Energy Builder, Infernal Bolts.

Q: Silverspar: According to the review the aspects were significantly changed. How were they changed? Did you condense them down into just two, one for infernal the other for bestial? Are they still toggles that use energy every minute? Are their effects more useful?

A: Ame: They got a big change, yes. There are now only 2 aspects - Aspect of the Bestial and Aspect of the Infernal. They are still toggles, but the effect of the toggle is much simpler than the old effect. They don't cost energy per minute, they instead affect your energy generation and usage in a similar manner to how travel powers affect your energy generation/use. The redesign was intended to make them more useful, definitely.

We also learned that the Supernatural review will be hitting PTS "very soon," and will also include the melee review as well.
