Re: Why a few can spoil it for the many (rares)

I honestly and candidly wish I was as dedicated to something in life as much as some of you guys are to your Razor macros and UOSA pixels.

Re: Brace Yourself! An IDOC is on the Horizon!

First time I ever went to Justice Island (via a rune on a boat near WBB), I was treated to the first time that it became the CA WildLife Preserve, when Matron or someone gated/herded a couple of silver serpents onto the island. I've never seen so much death in such a short period of time.

Re: Magic vs. GM

Key phrase there being "base damage".

You're applying the STR bonus to the base damage, *and* to the Tactics bonus damage.

Base damage is 27.
Tactics bonus is 50% of 27, so 13.5
STR bonus is 20% of 27, so 5.4
GM bonus of 4

27 + 13.5 + 5.4 + 4 = 49.9

49.9/2 = 24.95

Re: Magic vs. GM

27 is avg base damage of weapon .5 is the 50% tactics bonus (.75 with a +25 weapon) .2 is the 20% bonus for 100 STR you'd add another .2 in there for Anatomy, if assuming GM Anatomy then divide by two because that happens to everything. Your link to my other post is the exact same list and order as ...

Re: Magic vs. GM

Anyway, after reading your response to Bazooka and the one above, I see the source of the issue, you ARE mixing apples and oranges as you say, and you acknowledge that in one of the other posts. In columns D-F, you're listing the FULL damage before the halving. I assume G-J (GMTankDam et al.) and M...

Re: Magic vs. GM

There was some trade forum thing some months ago where you acted like an anus. I don't remember what exactly it was now, so no hard feelings on my end either :) I was curious about the source of your angst, given that I haven't played in about a year, and it appears it's because you Offers buyout, ...

Re: Magic vs. GM

Try pasting this in Excel, then doing Data -> Text to Columns -> Delimited -> check Comma -> Finish Then, in the formula cells, select all of them and Find/Replace a space with nothing. Those two steps should get it to display the results of the formulas I used, but give you the formulas in the cell...

Re: Magic vs. GM

Tanks typically have 100 STR and 100 Tactics, while Dexers have 100 Anatomy as well (an extra 20% damage bonus). I found the old file, but I don't know how to get Excel to paste the *formulas* into text, I can only seem to get it to paste the resulting values. Tried attaching the file, but am not al...

Re: Magic vs. GM

Thanks for the An Corp. Before we get started: I have no idea who you are/were. So, bummer you thought I was a douche, but rest assured I harbored no such ill feelings towards you. Indeed this was my own math, and indeed it looks like you ignored my response to Bazooka. For someone who calls my post...

Re: Proposed Rules Changes to AFK Macroing

While I understand the desire to have a rule that prevents a wide variety of AFK macroing, there is no practical way to enforce such a rule Kaivan, enlighten me please. How do you enforce the "no AFK resource gathering" rule, and what additional practical obstacles are in the way of enforcing the "...

Re: Armor Durability Concern

Studded gorget is nice in theory, but the lack of durability/repairability often meant I was cruising around with less than optimal AR. I went with a plate gorget and never looked back.

Re: Afk resource gathering of reagents, "What is a resource?

It is hard to debate the current rule, because it is (a) black-and-white (as defined), and (b) completely arbitrary with respect to what "problem" it chooses to combat. Personally, I'd offer a separate rule which would fit the same (a) and (b) criteria. No AFK macroing in which PC movement occurs (w...
