City Of Heroes Darkness Control Powers Detailed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

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 Darkness Control power set. The new primary power set choice for Dominators and Controllers allows the player to "harness the power of shadows and darkness to render their foes helpless."

Darkness Control excels in both area of effect crowd control (like most control sets), but also debuffing its targets' chance to hit. This means that enemies that are resistant to such control effects will still have their accuracy reduced. Another unique aspect of this power set is the two pet powers: Haunt and Umbra Beast. These pets give you an additional level of passive control and damage, meaning once your pets are out there you don't have to do anything, as they'll continue to damage and control your foes. Shades summoned by Haunt will harass their target dealing damage and inflicting Terrorize while your Umbra Beast tears its targets to shreds.

One thing you'll notice right off the bat is that gone are the old tentacles and "skulls erupting from the player's face" as Tunnel Rat would say. Instead you'll see flowing shadows and inky effects that make Dark Control stand out from the other control power sets as something truly unique and special both mechanically and visually.
