Regarding the 'Partially Customizable Powersets' - Back Alley Brawler states here that Martial Arts and Super Strength will both have alternate animations AND customizable VFX, so it's a little misleading to say that they are only "partially customizable" since, realistically, they're more customizable than everything else.

Hey, BaBs said some stuff on Twitter about stone melee/armor getting lava and crystal variants...should this be added?

>.> just a note but, Dual pistols and Demon summoning are confirmed for Going Rogue, which is suppose to be i16 soo... once we get some more info for the page.. --Sleepykitty 07:17, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Technically they are likely, not confirmed. Until we get a definitive post from a dev or a feature page, they aren't guaranteed. SpaceNut 09:50, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
o.o true.. the confirmed state depends on how accurate the press releases are. Several have them listed as being in the expansion and the two new NPCs are listed as having those sets. I did say we might as well wait for more info before updating though, it isn't like the press hasn't been given really, really bad info before (hami elder god *cough* *cough*) --Sleepykitty 11:29, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
As the I16 page says, Going Rogue =/= Issue 16 and Issue 16 =/= New powers. Draeth Darkstar 16:02, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

OMFG POWER CUSTOMIZATION! SpaceNut 22:39, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I know! OMG WHITE DARK BLAST (it just makes my head explode) Sera404 23:53, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm, apparently a feature that was not mentioned is that pets now zone with their owner. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gothenem (talkcontribs) 20:02, August 5, 2009

Duly added. Any updates from the open portion of closed beta: character creation, etc.? Rigel Kent 08:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Tempers are flaring on the Training Room forum. I gleaned as much useful information as I could (first 15 pages of the thread) before retreating to my happy place. No, not the "other beta." :) Rigel Kent 09:03, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
News/20090805 -- there is no longer any "open portion" of closed betas. Only what people saw before they took the servers down to "fix" it. AGGE talk/cons 09:25, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Yep, figured that out by about page 3 of the ragethread ;( Rigel Kent 16:19, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh and try this for a quote:

Every character in the game will receive a free Tailor session for every costume slot they have unlocked, when Issue 16 is released on the Live servers this summer/fall.

Another article[1]. Doesn't contain much new stuff except for Blaze Mastery being a copy of Pyre Mastery and the name of the new Body Mastery power is apparently Physical Perfection. CmdrAdeon 20:56, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, someone on the forum pointed out that it actually says that ALL Archetypes are getting a new Epic Power Pool which I missed in the excitement of confirming the powers in Blaze Mastery. I'm a little wary of adding that to the main article because the wording is rather convoluted so I'm not sure if we should take it at face value. If it is true I'm hoping for a Devices/Munitions Mastery style set for defenders :).CmdrAdeon 05:38, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I'd definitely hold off on that. As I recall, the statement I saw about Epics was that we would be seeing new powers for all ATs, not necessarily new sets. I'm betting that just means adding a new power to existing sets here and there. At the moment, there are sets that have four powers and there are sets that have five. My guess is that the sets with only four are going to get an additional power to even that out. (Physical Perfection being added to Body Mastery being one example of that.) --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 11:13, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Technically, it says both:
Issue 16 will also improve on the Epic Power Pools. Each archetype is getting an additional power set in their epic power pool, and each power set is getting an additional power so that there will be five powers from which to choose
Though I would still hold off to verify that they actually mean EVERY SINGLE AT is getting a new one, because they often misspeak in interviews about the scope of changes. :x AGGE talk/cons 17:07, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
It's confirmed, the only new EPP is Blaze Mastery. CmdrAdeon 22:42, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
