The Flight power pool is available to all archetypes except Warshades and Peacebringers.

The following table shows which powers are available and at what level:

Powers[]

Flight CombatFlight.png Hover[]

For hovering and aerial combat. This power is much slower than Fly, but provides some Defense to all attacks, offers good air control, costs little Endurance, and has none of the penalties associated with Fly. Switch to this mode when fighting other flying foes. Hover also grants pseudo-knockback protection; instead of getting knocked down and jumping back up, you just flip over in the air. Hover received a 10% increase in speed in Issue 8.

Minimum Level 6 (all except Kheldians)

Flying allies suffer from reduced Accuracy. You must be at least Level 20 and have two other Flight Powers before selecting Group Fly. Major hit to Accuracy; use with caution. Popular at Hami Raids.

Notes[]

  • TopDoc's Complete Movement Guide
  • As of 8-16-06, Swift, Quickness and Lightning Reflexes now grant a bonus to Flight Speed, in addition to their existing Resistance to Flight Speed debuffs.
  • Also, on 8-16-06, there was a reduction to endurance cost for Flight.
  • Issue 8 brought with it a 10% increase to Hover's base speed.
  • Masterminds can use Group Fly to transport their pets, but pets will fall if they fall too far behind the Mastermind. Additionally, of the Masterminds pets, Robotics pets have a flight animation specifically for group fly.
