  1. Oof. Imagine a bank wanting to disassociate itself from you because you are hurting their image in the post-2008 world.

  2. The zipline incident was almost certainly deliberate. He may go out of his way to appear goofy to appeal to the common man, but Alexander Boris de Feffel Johnson (yes, really) is actually so competitive he'll steamroll Japanese children to win.

  5. Highly depends on the type of enemy, the weapon etc. (e.g. Monk with Swift Flurry can be extremely potent against low deflection enemies) but generally I would say yes, a Rogue helps you to reach the highest single target damage potential (with weapons). Just because of the scaling Sneak Attack. Lashes are not multiplicative with each other. So a burning lash from Turning Wheel and a lash from Flames of Devotion will not influence each other. So if you are a Monk/Paladin doing 10 slash dmg you'd have two 20% lashes and you would get 10 slash + 2 burn + 2 burn = 14 overall. Would you

  6. (Apologies if people already knew this, but at least my own guide and the wikis are wrong on this) I was just trying to square some oddities I found with some effects while doing a guide update, and pretty much every major source has been wrong about the spiritshift boar DoT since the beginning. I think it started with MaxQuest's aggregated spiritshift info from the backer beta (not his fault, it was speculation based on some shortly observed data; it may have even been accurate then but it was changed and no one bothered to look closely again). Most everyone (including myself) repeats or

  7. 110V pump. I thought about using a DC powered pump with a 12V battery connected to the solar array. But it would have to to be connected in parallel with the batteries in the house. That means a long cable run, 75-80 meters or so. Using DC that means at least a 6 AWG wire. Kind of expensive. If I place the tanks close to the house it means pumping water through a 75-80 pvc pipe run which requires more power off the battery when means the house system does not get as much. So placing it close to the house has too many problems. I have a 110V circuit in the barn and it's only 15-20' from the ir

  9. ranger tranquilizer shot is probably even better than what a wizard can do, because it takes 30 seconds off (better than temporary arcane suppression most of the time), only targets deflection (arcane suppression targeting will can be annoying because casters tend to have good will defense), and you can spam it since it's only 1 bond (helpful when the enemy just keeps trying to rebuff themselves). it also interrupts. priests have some small effects - cleansing flame takes off -5, and magran's might takes off -2 per projectile (but gets both beneficial effects and also hostile effects e.g.

  11. Holy moly the Helwalker/Boar shifts for over 30 secs and the raw DoT lash lasts for over 13 secs. Also Heartbeat Drumming was doing some procs (picked Lightning Strikes so lesser chance of crit-chaining). But I totally forgot how good Taste of the Hunt with maxed INT and MIG from Helwalker is. Jeez it applies its forst tick with the attack which already leads to great dmg right away but then ticks for ~30 raw every 3 secs, lasts nearly 30 secs (that's 300 dmg yo!) and naturally stacks with the boar lash. ONE strike with Taste of the Hunt as Boar with 30 INT/MIG almost kills a CRE_Dummy. And it

  13. i actually immediately started thinking of a shifter/streetfighter (or shifter/trickster + scordeo's for extra hardiness) build after seeing this in action. deathblows + streefighter dmg + streetfighter -50% recovery should mean a pretty hefty sustained raw dot when in boar form. but yeah, the monk should also be great. monk: never a bad choice.

  14. So he will do ~50 dmg? Sweet. Since lashes work extremely well with PL scaling and additive dmg bonuses I guess a Boar/Rogue should be great. But if the raw lash also takes elemental lashes into account then maybe a Helwalker/Boar with Turning Wheel and Lightning Strikes would be even better? Not only because of the dual lashes but also because of the +10 INT which directly translates to higher/longer raw lash?

  18. What happened to option 7? Regardless of the outcome, so much intimidation of voters and dismissal of mail votes takes place that the whole thing becomes contested and Trump refuses to step down? Cue riots like you've never seen before and various local guard units starts to take sides. Whole thing gets messy until some clever general decides to restore order... forcefully?

  19. If this is your second run then most likely you are experiencing the immense positive effect of meta-knowledge - not so much the increased power of custom adventurers. Also because your party doesn't seem like overly optimized in terms of party synergies and crazy class combos. Custom adventurers start 1 level below official companions which def. balances out the somewhat unoptimized stats and class choices of the latter. So at least in the early game it doesn't make a lot of difference. At least for me who's not experiencing the effect of increased meta-knowledge anymore. Later in

  21. No time to respond at length, but I appreciate the list. I have many of the games you suggest already. It's funny, but mel's game was some funny very low budget game that was mostly text with merely a nod at graphics. Terribly clunky, but fun as hell. That was some time ago. Now, along with what I see on Hawke's list, I now need to purchase Stygian reign of the old ones. Damn it! However, in such a terrible year, at least we have games. I think, sometimes, facing crazy assed darkness in games makes us feel better about facing dark realities in real life. Anyhow, thanks, guys. I'll de

  23. I heard what sounded like two cannon balls careening down my stairs and my kittens came skidding around the corner to post up at my back sliding door. A squirrel was sitting on one of the patio chairs and the little bastage had torn a hole in a cushion and was filling his cheeks with stuffing, presumably to line his burrow for the winter. So in the garage the cushions went, at least only one was ruined. My wife was pretty miffed but I gave the cats treats for alerting me.

  24. Oh, I don't care about raytracing at all yet, I've seen nothing about it that makes me interested they'll have to improve and utilize it a lot more first. And I'm sure you could run in 4k with a lot less vram if you turn some settings down, per usual etc. The main point is AAA and maybe "AA" "recommended requirements" in the next few years are likely to skyrocket in general, even if they're at times a bit exaggerated - vs. the past long period of us being used to hardware requirements going up pretty slowly for a long while.

  27. the splintered reef one you might be thinking of a campsite on the black isles. i think you only get one from the kraken (all of the upgrade mat loot drops from bosses got nerfed). you also get one from FS - either from the mysterious dragon skeleton or somewhere else.

  37. Yeah when I saw it was on Netflix we watched it last night. Or rather, I watched half of it and hubby watched all of it (this seems to be becoming a common occurrence for us...). Now I'm glad I stopped. It wasn't terri-bad tho, what I saw. Better than some other films in the Tremor series. Just not good enough for me to not want to do ... something else.
