Overview

Contents

Fighting is one of the sets of Power Pools available to all Heroes and Villains.

These powers are excellent for those who are looking for a few low cost powers to defend themselves. The combat powers Boxing, Kick and Cross Punch synergize with each other, such that ownership of each power will provide bonuses to the other two. Additionally, Fighting synergizes with the Brawl power, which will gain benefits for each of the combat powers owned from this set.

Fighting Synergy

Fighting Synergy boosts the three attacks in the Fighting power pool - Boxing, Kick, and Cross Punch - if a character selects more than one of the attacks. Taking all three attacks stacks their effects.

  • Kick grants Boxing 15% more damage and 35% chance of mag 3 stun (instead of 10% chance of mag 2).
  • Boxing grants Kick 15% more damage and 40% chance of mag .67 knockdown (instead of 15% chance).
  • Cross Punch grants Boxing 15% more damage, drains the target of 2% endurance, and debuffs their recovery by 5%.
  • Cross Punch grants Kick 15% more damage, drains the target of 3% endurance, and debuffs their recovery by 5%.
  • Cross Punch gains 15% more damage and a 5% recharge and 5% tohit buff from both Boxing and Kick.

Fighting Synergy also boosts the effectiveness of Brawl. The debuffs all have a 10% chance of occurrence.

  • Brawl gains 10% tohit and 10% recharge rate debuffs from both Boxing and Kick.
  • Cross Punch grants Brawl 10% regeneration and 10% recovery debuffs.

Historical

Badge time.png This section contains information that no longer applies to the current version of City of Heroes Freedom. It is provided for historical purposes.
  • Issue 21 reduced the first two powers (Boxing and Kick) from level 6, to each unlocking at level 4. The third power (Tough) still requires level 14 and a single power prerequisite. Issue 21 also reduced the fourth power (Weave) to level 14, though it still requires two power prerequisites.
  • Issue 24 added the Cross Punch power and the additional synergies with Kick, Boxing, and Brawl.
