NCSoft and Paragon Studios have posted a new Intrepid Informer article detailing features in its super hero themed MMO, City of Heroes. This time the Informer focuses on the Staff Fighting powerset, offering players a description of the powers available as well as tips for using them effectively.

If you've ever wanted to play a super hero who wields a bo staff, trident or spear to pummel his or her foes senseless, I have good news for you. Today we'll be talking about Staff Fighting, which is a primary powerset choice for Brutes, Scrappers and Stalkers and a secondary powerset choice for Tankers. We'll go into greater detail on the individual powers within this exciting new power set, then we'll talk about some ways to get started with Staff Fighting and lastly we'll talk about some character themes.

Staff Fighting introduces a new mechanic called "Perfections" which are used to augment your staff powers. Early on, you can select the Staff Mastery power. Upon selecting this power, you'll earn three toggle powers: Form of the Body, Form of the Mind and Form of the Soul. You may only have one of these toggles active at a time. While one of these toggles is active, your Staff Fighting powers will grant you a level of Perfection, based on which Form you have active. Form of the Body grants levels of Perfection of Body, Form of the Mind grants levels of Perfection of Mind and Form of the Soul grants you levels of Perfection of Soul. You may have up to 3 levels of Perfection at a time, each level granting you a scaling buff based on which type of Perfection you have active.
