Big List of Powers: Edit
There seems to be a lot of power choices in Champions Online. This allows a lot of variety, but not necessarily the ability to become "godlike". For example: there are 18 "Energy Builder" and 13 "Travel" powers, but you'll only get one "Energy Builder" (at Lvl 5) and two "Travel" powers (one at 10th lvl and one at 36th) during your Hero's lifetime.
See the Basic power grid for a listing of every power in the game on one screen.
There are several different kinds of powers.There are actives and passives. Debuffs and buffs. And so on. The actives are divided into Tap, Toggle, Click and Maintain powers. Toggles stay on until it either runs out of targets/energy or you switch it off. Click activates exactly once. Maintain starts with a full bar and keeps going until the bar is drained. Taps start with an empty bar and can be charged up. The game lists the powers according to what they do (i.e., Ranged Attacks together, Buffs together, Melee Area Attacks together, and so forth.)
To help the pacing of character growth, all powers utilize a Tier System which makes it impossible to get the most devastating attack at level 5. The tiers are as follows:
|Builder||Energy Building Power|
|Tier 0||No Prerequisites|
|Tier 1||1 Framework Power, or any 2 Arbitrary powers|
|Tier 2||3 Framework Power, or any 5 Arbitrary powers|
|Tier 3||5 Framework Power, or any 8 Arbitrary powers|
|Tier 4||10 Framework Powers and complete Vibora Bay|
This type of system rewards sticking to a particular framework by giving you access to higher Tier powers quicker, but does not force you to do so.
The following chart shows you the approximate level at which you will gain new powers and a rough estimate of how quickly you can get to the next tier:
|Tier 1 Specialization Unlocked|
|Tier 1 Generalization Unlocked|
|8||Power Point||Tier 2 Specialization Unlocked with same type Energy Builder|
|11||Power Point||Tier 2 Specialization Unlocked differing Energy Builder|
|13||Characteristic Focus (final)||Bob|
Tier 2 Generalization Unlocked
|17||Power Point||Tier 3 Specialization Unlocked with differing Energy Builder|
|23||Power Point||Tier 3 Generalization Unlocked|
|29||Power Point||Earliest possible Tier 4 unlock|
For those of you keeping score, this is how much "stuff" you get in your character's lifetime:
