yes!
Everyone's favourite Empathy/Radiation/Sarcasm defender Atom Eve has hit 35 at last.
I had a bit of a dilemma. I couldn't think of any power I actually wanted. I have all of her empathy set, and I really don't want any of her radiation blast powers.
I had to convince myself to take hover. Blah.
Anyways just reminding you that I'm joining Aufheben on his TF tomorrow around 1(EST). Join us! It'll be a hoot.

Introducing... (Or: Shameless new character post)

Well, since my main character Spelling Bee has hit 50, I've been trying a few new alts. I think I've found a new winner.

I had in mind a Fire/Mace Tanker (because rarely seen builds appeal to me, and I think I've ever seen a mace tanker once), and made a costume I *really* liked. So then I hit the internet to find a good name. My first stop was a search for firefighting terms. Immediately I found a slang term used by Firefighters for describing the largest, most powerful structure fires and I thought it was a *perfect* Hero name.

Thus I introduce to you... Major Rager

Healing the bad guys

I was on the test server trying the respec (I want to use it to my full advantage, and I think i finally figured out the best set up for my F/F Tanker) when I came across some heros who had just beated one of those Snow guys.

But the weird thing was, there was a warwolf with them. And while I know bad guys a who are X amount of levels lower than you wont attack you, it still seemed odd. (Especially since I dont recall seeing them in the Hollows before. TO make things even weirder, one of the heroes then healed the wolf who had some damage. I saw a big yellow +25, and then his red bar increased.

Is this possible or have did I not see what i think I saw. I asked him if he had just healed the wolf and he said that he had. But it still felt odd. Thoughts?
Kobold!

FYI - Frozen Fury Badge

Just thought I'd shed some light into why people are being stingy over the snow lords. I was playing my Taxibot today when the shout went out that one had spawned in Four Seasons. I ran over there, died, but got ressurected in time to help take him down. I got the experience, I got the snowballs, and I got the present...but I got no badge. I sent a petition inquiriing why, and I was informed that because neither I nor my team did the most damage I didn't qualify for the badge.

So, unlike other Monsters, you actually have to be part of the team that does the most damage to get the badge. If, for example, you are on a team of 8 level 12's and some level 50 comes along and out ranks you on the damage? That hero is going to get the badge and your team isn't.

I know for a fact Babbage doesn't work this way, because I took part in a mass assault on him that involved about 30 heroes and we ALL got the badge.
