This was really a set I didn't see a need. To borrow Hero System terminology Wind is just a special effect. Force seemed to do the job just fine.

@(Unverified) I think for a number of people the cosmetics of powers are very important rather than having completely unique powersets every time.

I clicked on this article expecting Champions Online to have added frilly dresses and silly hats. I'm disappointed.

@(Unverified) It's a fairly well-known fact that I'm a Touhou fan and I play Hisoutensoku, heh.

Either way, no frilly dresses or hats this patch. Sorry :

@Patrick Mackey
I was fairly certain I remembered someone on the massively staff mentioning Hisoutensoku somewhere (probably in a WRUP column), which is why I merely alluded to it rather outright name-dropping.

Nonetheless, it was simply a joke meant as good fun. I apologize if you interpreted it as a slight at your column or considered it an inappropriate response. That wasn't my intention. Still, if CO DID add frilly dresses and silly hats, I might be more inclined to try it again.

@(Unverified) No, I thought your comment was cute. :D

And I really want an Iku hat in CO. I can't even make a Sakuya outfit! /cry

@Patrick Mackey It's a little easier to make Touhou characters in CoH, but not by much. My main there was a blaster based on Reisen, using dual pistols and mental manipulation. The costume was relatively simple, which is why I went with her; all the parts were there, including the bunny ears and tail. For an alt, I had a fairly recognizable Meiling scrapper (martial arts + super reflexes). Also tried to make a Tewi corrupter, but there was no dress big and frilly enough.

Wind is a joke.

The crushing/cold damage split renders it useless in PvP, and the best thing going for it is the passive, which helps Elec and Ice characters far more.

Hurricane is decent. The rest is laughable.

No wonder Champions is dying now.
