Those look really good. I might have to log in to my Champions lifetime account for the first time in nearly two years.

Been asking for these in City of Heroes for a looong time with no luck.

I'd recommend giving it a look. There's been a lot of work done over the past two years, so I suspect you;'d be in for a pleasant surprise.

Actually, you can buy jetpacks in CoH now. Standard "raptor pack" model, 2 hours of use per, not as fast as level-scaled Flight but it'll get you around. Merchants in Grandville and just the other side of the Firebase Zulu gate (in the Shadow Shard, accessible from Peregrine Island through Portal) sell 'em.

True. However, these are not temporary powers. They're costume pieces that allow you to customize your flight power.

Ah. Now that's something my reformed Sky Raider has been asking for for years, yes.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's bad, but I would have much rather had whatever dev time was invested in these packs go towards some new challenging content. The game needs more substance, there are already enough aesthetic options.

And before people start screaming how awesome it is that they added this for FREE, ask yourself how much it costs to retcon in a new travel power.

@(Unverified) Yeah, it's really annoying to have to completely redo your powers when you get a new travel power. They really should do something about the respec system.

Forget the jetpack set, the ranged weapon pack is far more enticing

@Amusednow the weapons packs seem highly overpriced for what they are imo.

How come the people who pay $15 a month don't get this for free?

@Yellowdancer They do get it for free. The travel power is now selectable at the trainer, for both gold and silver players, at no extra cost (other than possible respec costs, which you can pay for with in-game currency). They are selling new jetpack skins for the costume creator, but there have always been jetpacks there to begin with.

First poster is obviously a plant. Who the heck will pay lifetime sub, then want to log back into the game so they can pay more money for a minor aesthetic graphics change?

You mock and/or disbelieve, but it happens.

Also subscribers get a monthly stipend. So if a Lifetime subscriber has really been away from the game for two years they will have more than enough points from the stipend to buy the Jetpacks, some costume sets, etc.
