GENERAL SITES

City of Heroes / PlayNC http://www.cityofheroes.com
The official game site, and the place to go if you need support or help with your PlayNC account. Not a ton of useful stuff otherwise, and not always as complete and up to date as it should be.
City of Heroes Official Forums http://boards.cityofheroes.com/ubbthreads.php
The official place to discuss, query, bitch and follow the antics of our friends the Developers. Tons and tons of information, and THE place to stay up to date, but hard to mine what you need without a lot of effort.
City of Heroes WarCry http://coh.warcry.com
A semi-official adjunct game site, with lots of helpful sections on powers, zones, etc. Most sections are out of date, though.
Coldfront's City of Heroes http://coh.coldfront.net
A very good news, info and general reference site. Lots of useful information, and it seems to be kept more updated than most other sites.

TOOL & UTILITY SITES

Hero Planner (URL Too Long to Show)
Utility for planning your hero's power set choices and enhancement slotting. Appears to be obsolete; new version is CoH Planner, below. Can help you choose an archetype, power sets, and sensible order of power choices without having to waste respecs!
CoH Planner http://cohplanner.coldfront.net/
Utility for planning your hero's power set choices and enhancement slotting. Can help you choose an archetype, power sets, and sensible order of power choices without having to waste respecs! (Appears to be successor to Hero Planner?)
HeroStats http://herostats.sourceforge.net/
Utility that runs alongside CoH and gathers detailed stats on your hero's actions.
Hero Logger http://www.benziegler.com/HeroLog/
Another hero logging utility - inexpensive but not free, though. Check it out if HeroStats isn't enough.
VidiotMaps for CoH http://www.vidiotmaps.com/coh/index.php
The essential add-in for players who get tired of searching for people, places and things in the zones. This site has both lookup maps and in-game maps that replace your hero's map display with one that's actually useful. Even though the default maps in the game have gotten better in the last few Issues, VidiotMaps still adds very useful information such as badge, plaque and Monster spawn sites.

REFERENCE SITES

Badge & Plaque Locator http://www.aeyrie.net/coh/badges.php
Where to find the badge sites and plaques, with info on how to get the accolades as well.
City of Heroes
Tips & Tricks
http://members.cox.net/arianeb/coh.htm
A nifty information site with sections on where to find foes of different levels, and some fairly generic keybind and badge info.
Khaiba's Mastermind Bind Guide http://cityofvillains.gameamp.com/guide/viewGuide/2325.php

Reference for an excellent system for managing Mastermind pets. This system presents the simplest and most intuitive pet-control keysets I can imagine.

It doesn't cover efficient summoning and buffing of pets, though - so that's what I'd concentrate on if I ever turn to the task.

FAN ART, FICTION & HUMOR SITES

City of Zeroes http://www.cityofzeroes.net
Comic life among Paragon City's hapless civilians - very funny stuff!
