Dev Chat Transcript Available - City of Heroes -

The transcript from last Friday's dev chat is now available. The team members on hand included Melissa "War Witch" Bianco, Jesse "Ghost Falcon" Caceres, Matt "Positron" Miller, Floyd "Castle" Grubb, and Art Lead David Nakayama. Together they fielded 65 questions, a few of which came from us here at

Positron on the time involved in side-switching:

Can you give us some more detail on how morality arcs will work, and approximately how much time it will take to switch from Hero to Vigilante, and then from Vigilante to Rogue? by mentalgiant

Posi- There is a cooldown timer that will slow the process. We are still working on the exact numbers, but we're eyeballing a week's worth of work to switch one degree.

Castle on the effects of side-switching on epic power pool choices:

How will the epic power pools/villain patron pools work for toons that change sides and/or stay in the gray area? by Cybernaut1

[Castle] A character who switches sides completely will retain their current Ancillary / Patron Powers until they respec. At which point, they will be forced to select from their "current" alignment. Heroes and Vigilantes count toward "Heroes". Villains and Rogue count toward "Villains".

War Witch reveals the next booster pack as the Mutant booster pack:

What is the next booster pack and when is it going to be released?

War Witch: The next booster pack, as you have already asked about, is the Mutant Pack! We're working to get it to you before we release the Expansion. I can't give specifics, but you'll dig it!
