Re: Melee calculator

Oh nice, thanks for that. Playing around with some more numbers in Excel right now; EHP = (HP / (1-Abs%)) / (1-Evade%) Should be HP divided by % damage taken after abs reduction (% is in decimal form) and all divided after your chance to get hit (1 - chance to evade in decimal form). IE if you have ...

Re: Melee calculator

And I don't think anyone consider(ed)(s) the split a dealbreaker -until- the idea of being bashed comes into play. That's really the only spot where it matters. It comes down to having good situational awareness and knowing who you're buffing. "whois" the people in a fight. Are they masters or nonm...

Re: Melee calculator

Ahh dang it I left the stupid wristcuffs off the equipment trainer calculation so that mucks my numbers up a bit. I'm using fblades at the moment. I'd have to sit down and really spreadsheet this out to get EHP numbers. The point of my post was, a single troll isn't going to do dung against you as a...

Here is my actual choice given my stats and equipment, meaning 17 dex and not dripping in rares: 132 db and 178 pb i...

Re: Herald Change Feedback

Hard no to group fade coming back. The general dynamic we have is good - specific high-reward smobbing (IoMM, cityheads) is often punishable and DS can and have hit groups that attempt that. And aside from that, the lower-reward regular smobs tend to be safer, but not completely safe - just takes s...

Re: Herald Change Feedback

I'm guessing you weren't around during group fade, Reyne, but imagine all the complaints being made about current Herald groups, except it's DS looking for "pk", aka smashing solo/small groups of people. This would all be acceptable because they're dangerously raiding. And again, this would hurt yo...

Re: Herald Change Feedback

Here is how you fix it: Bring group fade back and make basin easier to use. Simultaneously adjust heralds such that smaller groups of not super bonused characters can actually get them done without having to wander around the Blight to do so. Adjust QP rewards so that it is in line with other time/r...

Re: Herald Change Feedback

Most of these smobgroups are not there to pk, they are not there to learn zones, they are not there to dip a toe in northern pk. If that was the case, I could live with it, however almost 100% of those smobgroups are intent on minimizing the risks: they bring zone sensers, they bring an overkill of...

Re: Coronavirus and you

Ozark has been decent. I'm enjoying The Magicians also. Little cheesy but that's fine with me. I am stuck working at a hospital that refuses to let me telework when I could. My wife works at a covid testing center as a nurse. My kid and I are asthmatic so trying to get my telework approved so I can ...
