Issue 11 Live Nov. 28th – That's tomorrow!

Expect to see a flood of new tankers and scrappers in the Atlas Sewers tomorrow night 🙂

Posted by Lighthouse last night at 8:26 PM:

We are pleased to announce that Issue 11: A Stitch In Time will be made available on the Live City of Heroes servers on Wednesday, November 28th. All servers will be coming down for extended maintenance starting at 7 AM Eastern (4 AM Pacific) and we estimate they will be back up by 1 PM Eastern (10 AM Pacific).

* Free Costume Token

Given the debut of Weapon Customization in Issue 11, a free costume token will be granted to all characters on Wednesday, November 28th with the launch of the Issue.

* Free Respec

Additionally, with the many changes to powers included in Issue 11, we will be making a Free Respec available to all characters on Friday, December 7th. Read the full announcement of that here.

If you are not familiar with the many features included in the 11th free expansion to City of Heroes, click here to read the highlights!

Something to keep in mind is that if you already have a free respec token from a previous Issue release they do NOT stack. So, you’ll want to burn it off before they are issued on December 7th and then get the new tokens. To be clear, this only applies to tokens that were given from previous Issue launches (i10, i9, i8, etc.) not Veteran rewards or respecs earned in missions – they stack.

A quick recap of changes with i11:

The Ouroboros System which allows you to travel back in time to re-run your past missions (or story arcs you might have missed), a chance to reclaim an echo of a previous temp power, or run entirely new missions where you fight alongside (or against) the signature Heroes/Villains in the mythos.

Two new powersets:  Dual blades and Willpower available to all melee types (Tankers, Scrappers, Brutes, Stalkers) and weapon customization which allows you to change the style and color of your weapons.

New ultra-rare, high level Invention Sets that will give epic bonuses and effects to end game toons.

Among many other smaller enhancements and under the covers tweakage.
