Temporary Powers

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

Temporary powers are powers that a hero or villain may only use for a short time. The three main types of temporary powers are powers that last for a designated amount of time, a designated amount of uses, or until a specific action is accomplished. Some temporary powers may fall into more than one category; for example, powers that run out when either a specific action is accomplished or a certain amount of time, whichever is sooner.


  • This power can be earned any number of times through Flashback. Temporary powers denoted by this icon can be obtained an unlimited number of times via Ouroboros flashbacks, and remain for some time after the flashback is over.
  • This power can only be earned once at full strength; further earnings will be reduced in number of charges or strength. Temporary powers denoted by this icon can also be obtained via Ouroboros flashbacks. If the power has already been obtained once, however, a more limited version (an "echo") of the power is awarded instead.
  • This power can be lost when you return to the contact that bestowed it. Be careful, these powers can be lost when you speak to the contact from which you received them again. Even though they appear to have a certain number of uses remaining, the power will be lost and you cannot regain them.

Craftable Powers

Temporary MedKit.png The Lost Cure This power can be lost when you return to the contact that bestowed it. (Heroes only)

The Lost Cure is also awarded to anyone who is teamed up with the Craft Lost Cure mission owner at the time said mission owner crafts the cure. Those who get the wand this way do not lose it as long as they don't use it up.

Additionally, villains can also get the wand this way. Be teamed up in Cimerora, the Rikti War Zone, or in a co-op mission with a hero who has the mission. Summon a portable workbench, then the hero crafts the wand and the villain gets one as well. This will not work in Pocket D, however (inside a DJ Zero mission will work, and possibly in the Winter Event Ski Chalet; but in the D itself, crafting from a portable workbench does not work).

Weapon Raid Side Mission Rewards

These Temporary Powers are acquired by foiling the arms dealers during Weapon Raid Side Missions within Mayhem and Safeguard missions. These powers are awarded to the person who clicks the objective in the side mission, and are random as to which power is awarded.

Market Teleport Powers

These powers may be purchased from any given Auction House for a fixed price of 10,000 Inf. Using one disables all similar powers for 30 minutes and consumes the power. You can purchase another immediately, but can only carry one at any given time.

It's also worth noting that attempting to use a Transporter for the opposing faction will result in an "Invalid Target" error. For example, using the Black Market Transporter as a Hero or using the Trading House Transporter as a member of The Resistance won't work. Using a Trading House/Underground Transporter as a non-Praetorian also results in an error.
