COH Profile - Atomic Cow

Work has been busy the last couple weeks. Big deadlines on the 15th and 20th are now over. Time to start blogging again. Here is my newest character for City of Heroes; and also one who has advanced more rapidly than any other I've played. THE ATOMIC COW!

Bessie is a gentically engineered cow from an factory farm. Humand DNA was combined with a cow's in hopes of making better milk. Bessie's intelligence was beyond anything that could have been imagined and she rose up against her captors. After escaping she managed to find her way to Paragon City and used her vast intellect to create her Atomic Hammer, a swarm of nanites that produce stone armor for her and allow her to teleport.

I've learned a few things playing with Titan Weapons. First is to up your difficulty as quickly as possible. There are some great area effect attacks, its nice to have a huge group around to take advantage. Before I reached 20th level I set my self at -1 level x8 players. Huge groups of enemies, a little weaker than normal so they don't overpower my defenses too quickly. That and going through inspirations like water help greatly. Also, being a Brute the large groups quickly drive my rage bar near maximum and greatly magnify my damage. Heck, even mud pots becomes effective at that point.

Like so many of my characters I have to also take advantage of the invention system and create plenty of Recovery Serum to make up for the large amount of energy I burn.

"Therefore, it never occurred to me to become a pilot." (from The Red Baron by Manfred von Richtofen (p.63)

An interesting quote from the greatest fighter ace of the First World War. Of course in context it was early in the war, he was recently transferred from the cavalry to become an observer in a two-seater aircraft. At that point he felt that in the time it would take him to train to become a pilot the war would be over.
