Newbie, CoH

2 stupid questions

1) Help! My contact only wants to give me a Warburg mission. Nothing else. What the Dark? I didn't buy a PvP game. Much less a hero-gank-hero game.

2) Is there any way to turn off aura, except to switch to a non-aura alternative costume? I love my aura but it is kinda too conspicious at times.

It is my first ever aura! I sparkle like a true bishounen! But I don't want to distract the girls during ciritical missions...

Paragon City Soccer League!

Thanks to boyraceruk for inspiration in his own LJ post to city_of_heroes

For your consideration: The Paragon City Soccer League!

Only thing I'd have to figure out is a good villain to use as the ball, and which powers would work best for this type of "sport".

Contests.

Heartened by the costume competition I've been thinking about other kinds of competitions one might have in Paragon City.

There are the obvious ones, like a race around the city, or more exotic tasks for specific archetypes. I was thinking of a herding competition for tankers (you have five minutes to get as much aggro as possible, final score to be the sum total of all mob levels following you), and a damage competition for blasters (who _does_ hit hardest?).

Can anyone think of any more?

New Cape, with the Quick Release Velcro

I am dithering on the design of my cape for my second costume slot. I posted some screenshots in my own journal here and based on friends' suggestions, I tried out a solid black long. Well, unfortunately, it kinda just blends in too much and didn't look that good. So, I'm looking for some more input.

Interestingly, after I finished running through the tailoring, it cost me nothing (as expected) and then said something like, "Cost for this session is waived. You have 1 free tailor session left." So, either they give out 1 per slot or a 2nd one accrued on Test. (The changes to my character's head were still there, by the way, and due to the need to change from chiseled to average 1 shape, it's a good thing the fee was still waived; the face slider costs an extra 24k for me to touch!)

ETA: tags and complete thoughts. :)
ETA2: Oh, according to the DevTracker, they just released another batch of free costume tokens this morning so if you had one before... it just got overwritten.

Hi Everyone

I quit COH on Oct 26th, I was disgusted with the nerfs that were done.
I had worked on my fire/ice tank and on the 26th it basically became
useless. I would like to return to COH because it is the only
one of its kind out there right now. I have no interest in playing
COV right now, but have a few questions about it and how it
interacts with COH. Hope someone can help.

1) Since I only have COH can I enter the new zones, or
are they just for COV owners?

2) How else is COV intergrated into COH?

Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.
