Comprehensive Design Revamp Coming in Series of Updates

Comprehensive Design Revamp Coming in Series of Updates -

The Marvel Heroes Online site has been updated with big news that a series of updates will be incoming that will update every Hero, every character build, including power points to include meaningful choices; revamping talents so that every Hero will have five sets; Heroes to be given  both Defensive, Offensive and some with a Mechanic traits; Hero balance to improve the health of the game and much, much more.

The intended play dynamic from the Hero Talent Updates is to choose and slot eight Powers that you enjoy and want to use, and five Talents that will support those decisions. This will get you to the meat of the game much faster than tediously assigning Power points and scrolling through multiple action bars during combat.

With those things in mind, we have removed the second and third action bars, but in the same breath, removed almost all cases of shared cooldowns, non-stacking effects, Specializations locking Powers, and antirequisites. You have full freedom to choose the 8 Powers you want to use, and the Talents to create your build in total. We’ve already removed Travel Powers as a Power bar slot, and in this pass, have also done the same with Cleanse Powers. Movement Powers (such as Dashes and Teleports) will now immediately free you of crowd control effects, so there is no more need for a dedicated active slot for Cleanse effects.

The coming weeks will see the MHO site updated with design and developer blogs to outline what each of these areas will embody and the reasons behind decisions. The Item system will be the next feature to go under the developers' microscope. Keep eyes on the site.
