CITY OF HEROES

Powers

* Scrapper
o Scrapper version of Heightened Senses' Help text now matches the Help text of the other versions of the power.

* Blasters
o Defiance Improved:
+ Blasters' earliest abilities come so naturally to them, that they are accessible even in states that normally prevent them from using powers, such as being Held, Slept or Stunned.
+ Additionally, each time the Blaster attacks with a primary or secondary power, they gain a stacking damage bonus for the next several seconds. The amount of the damage bonus and its duration is dependent on the exact power used, with single target abilities generally giving the largest bonus.
o Voltaic Sentinel now has a duration of 60 seconds for Blasters, and it should fly considerably faster.
o 12.5 percent increase to Base Ranged Damage.

* Defenders
o Voltaic Sentinel should fly considerably faster for Defenders with Electric Blast.

Badges

* Hero Flashback missions should give proper level badges

User Interface

* Removed old Defiance bar from UI for Blasters.

CITY OF VILLAINS

Powers

* Improved activation time for Mastermind Mercenaries Burst power.

Tasks

* Snake Eggs should once again Hatch.
