At last, I have had my first CoH/V character hit level 50.
It’s been a bit of a race to see which of two characters would get there first. Ebon Thunderbolt started the week at 48, but the Old Ranger managed to catch up to get to 48 as well. Then on Saturday, Ebon upped the stakes, getting to level 49.
This evening, the Old Ranger won the race (which should’ve been obvious-he has super-speed!) by achieving level 50. Ironically, the moment occurred during the Lady Gray Task Force, which features the alien Rikti-which, in the backstory behind the character, were established as the Ranger’s ultimate enemies. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to hit 50.
I fully expect Ebon to hit his own 50 next weekend. In the meantime, I’m going to be cheerfully tinkering away at designing my first Kheldian character, now that the archetypes have been opened up.
