Jabroniville wrote:A BIG one for me, though I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, is the two "Favored" Feats no longer matter towards campaign PL, meaning some people are actually liable to take them now. However, Favored Foe is weaker than "Enemy" because you can't use it to affect attack/damage, just Skills. "Minions" can no longer be upgraded, either.

Jabroniville wrote:-Holy, "Wings" are now a FLAW on Flight, and not just a Drawback. That almost seems too cost-efficient, considering it used to be -1 Drawback, and didn't exactly get WORSE for you. Especially weird, given how many other things got more costly.
Jabroniville wrote:-Hey, they fixed "immortality", removing the flawed idea that you had to recover from the damage conditions normally once you resurrected.
Jabroniville wrote:-Environmental Adaptation is now under "Movement" and costs double what it used to for some reason.
it'll take some doing to make Expertise worth being twice as much as Profession or Knowledge used to be- I can't recall too many of my builds having a lot of Profession.

You could put three ranks into profession (let's say, Doctor) and no ranks in any of the skills appropriate to that profession (like Medicine, Knowledge; Life Sciences, etc.). You're basically guaranteed a high paying job, while having none of the qualifications necessary to performing that job. Profession should be a super power called Magic Resume.
Jabroniville wrote:Nobody's commented on my little poll yet- I want to KNOOOOWWWWWWW what to do regarding 3rd Edition builds on my thread, guys!
Jabroniville wrote:1) Should I start a brand-new thread for 3rd Edition stuff, or just keep posting them here, replacing old builds with 3rd Edition stuff and putting them into the "Build Graveyard"? I'm a little concerned about this thread vanishing if I leave it empty for too long (does this site have a 'dead thread' feature that extinguishes old ones?)
2) How should I set up the Archives? Mine right now has Marvel Builds, DC Builds, Other Comics, then "Other" stuff in order, organized by teams/themes. Should I put 3e separate from them, or just replace older builds with them as I go?
