What's the Best first upgrade

Postby sprockitz » Mon Sep 16, 2013 1:05 pm

I almost have enough experience to get my first upgrade. What's good in this game?

And is the x-ray laser the best free weapon?

Intelligence is useless until a high level. Go for Courage at first :)

Depends on your alt mode
Speed if you have Dodge
Strength if you have Ram
Firepower is the trigger for most Strafe, however at 0 you will benefit more from Courage.

IMO: Strength should be the first 4 points unless you have Dodge as you will have a harder hitting character and get more damage than most weapons. You also get the added bonus of putting on mitigation armor (LEVEL 0 will be a minor but it is still better than nothing).

If you have a Strafer / Avoider alt then go to speed / courage.

Quick Breakdown:
Strength : Raw Damage /ability to wear armor
Intelligence : Trigger for some abilities
Speed : Ability to hit / Avoid
Endurance : Damage mitigation
Rank : Level of armor you can wear (useless till about 2 then about 6 then 10). Armor does a bit of phyiscal damage and mostly weapon reduction
Courage : Frequency of Attacks
Firepower : Level of weapon you use. Unless you are a strafer save the points and invest them into Strength as you will get a more constant attack damage and higher attack rate
Skill : Compliment to the Firepower / Ability trigger.

I missed you too Super Megatron. Now let me repair one of your level 11's in a mission so I can get some XP!!

And Burn, I wasn't really trolling here, it's been a long time and I didn't know if anything had changed...and I do remember things being tweaked back in like 2007 or so. Courage used to be best for everything but after those tweaks I remember it not being so great.

So refresh my memories...

1. Does increase strength increase damage from a weapon or just damage from kicks/punches and ram?
2. Does intel increase the amount of healing done in a repair?
3. Does increasing speed increase probability of an avoid or just increase probability of an opponent missing you with a weapon/kick/punch (and increasing your chance of hitting them)?
4. Will these questions ever be answered since this board seems to have next to no activity?
