Auras, for those of you who weren’t into the old City of Heroes’ lingo, are basically wild particle effects that float around your character. Want to be on fire? Have water droplets sploosh around you? See rocks crumble from your elbows? Electricity comin’ outta your eyes? You can do that!
“In our last couple of updates, we showed you some costume items and explained how you could unlock them or purchase them. But the Avatar Builder will let you choose more than just the pieces of your costume,” Missing Worlds Media explains. “Auras […] will also be available so you can make your hero (or villain, vigilante, scoundrel or mercenary) look just the way you want. And as with costume pieces, some auras will be available to players from the moment you log in for the first time, and some will need to be unlocked either through the store or gameplay. […] The Avatar Builder doesn’t stop there. You’ll also be able to customize the animations and effects for each of your character’s powers …but that’s a whole other update – with a lot more to see in it.”
We are here for this.
