City of Heroes Players Face Power and Responsibility in Chapter 13
NCsoft has released Chapter 13: Power and Responsibility for City of Heroes and City of Villains. Although the update is minus the scenario creation that has been pushed back to Issue 14 for polishing, there are several new features to enrich the lives of players’ avatars.
Multiple Builds will now allow players to have two builds of each character. Pact Leveling will allow you and a friend to permanently sync characters below level five so that they gain experience at the same rate, even if one of you is hardcore and the other a casual gamer. The most anticipated new feature is the Day Job which will allow your character to keep busy improving itself during your downtime.
Also City of Heroes’ new Day Job feature offers a way for players to progress their characters in the game even when they are logged out of the game. In addition to providing an XP rest bonus to all characters, specific Day Jobs are determined by where you log out of the game. There’s an associated Day Job at many key locations in Paragon City™ or the Rogue Isles™. Once characters have accumulated the required amount of time for each Day Job, they are rewarded with the appropriate Day Job Badge, increasing their “earnings” for that job. Multiple Badges can be combined to unlock Accolades and the ability to accumulate additional new rewards.
