  2. When I was a lot younger I had naturally wavy hair with very long curls that was well over a foot beyond shoulder length (kind of like Jason Momoa, just with a scrawny, MUCH less buff frame ). Then came military service, and it never grew back the way it was, and the curls are almost completely gone. Such a waste. edit: Will be getting my first shot of Moderna next week.

  3. I had the most incredible and beautiful experience this morning on my walk, their was low cloud when I started at 7 am and it was dark and gloomy. I live in the city in the shadow of Table Mountain and the area is very much impacted by clouds and erratic weather patterns that I have never experienced before living in SA Anyway I always walk uphill to the bottom of Table Mountain and then come back and this morning my walk took me through the cloud cover and their was sun and I had this amazing view of the whole of Cpt city covered by this lake of clouds. I dont take my phone with me but

  6. I think I will go for the Trickster/Helwalker, max resolve and perception. My idea is a good critical build but at the same time is hard to be hit. The other idea is a Streetfighter/Wizard, but I don’t know if the mage defensive buffs worth the trade and if the rest of the build will fit this idea.

  7. SC streetfighter or streetfighter/monk works best with dual blunderbusses because you can trigger the bonus easily with Powder Burns while being safe. With dual mortars you can apply AoE bleeds/afflictions, while dual blundebusses with Gambit and the ring of Clenched Muscle are nice for single target dps. For melee streetfighters you need a priest with BDD in the party or else it's too hard to trigger the bonuses.

  8. It is the king of ending fights before they begin, if you're into this kind of gameplay. Max MIG/PER/INT/DEX, dump CON/RES. Hoard +PL items for Fire/Freeze spells and items that boost ACC, DMG, Crit DMG. Start fight with a Delayed Fireball and maybe toss another one on top, continue with Shadowflames when combat start. Maybe Smoke Veil, get close to survivors and finish them with Precisely Piercing Burst from invisibility. Rince and repeat. It is extremely powerful. But depending on your beliefs regarding honor and combat, you might be bringing shame upon your dojo .

  9. Personally I'd go Bloodmage. Loosing Conjuration is painful. Also, shocking oneself with Chain Lightning while wearing Deltro's Cage helmet is the single largest damage multiplier... and when you do that you DON'T want the Chain Lightning spell to be duplicated (like what Evoker special can do).

  10. I like Vanishing Strikes, but imo Gambit with 100% crit conversion is better suited for party setup imo. Pure "Assassin stuff" where you backstab and assassinate from stealth and invisibility often requires too much work and attention to be effective in a party imo. It profits a lot from good setup and stealthy gameplay and is more "tactical" - which often leads to a situation where you park your party somewhere and do invisible stuff with the Assassin alone because the other party members will only mess things up. At least that's my experience when I don't use the Assassin with a caster

  11. IMO dual rapiers with modal are fine if you like that. Rapiers have fast attack speed, even with modal they are only marginally slower then "normal" speed weapons - and for me dual normal speed weapons are plenty fast enough. I agree with not taking the Streetfighter/Berserker. Been there and indeed the damage is sick. BUT my char did keep dieing all the time.... NOT fun. I'd however still consider a multiclass with a monk. Simply because how insane "free" hit chains from Swift Flurry/Heartbeat Drumming are with a high crit rate. Sometimes getting like 10 hits instead of 1... Maybe

  12. Fast attacks and lots of crits sounds like a Berserker/Streetfighter with dual daggers. Or at least anything else with Streetfigher, not necessarily Trickster. Played one with Marux Amanth + Pukestabber and all the speed goodies (Alkohol, Devil of Caroc + Abraham, Two Weapon Style, Frenzy, Bloodlust, Heating Up, Blackblade's Hood and so on) and all the dmg goodies (One Sands Alone, Blooded, Barbaric Smash, Bloody Slaughter, Sneak Attack, Deathblows, Blood Storm, Deep Wounds etc.). It's incredibly fast once you get flanked and has very high crit damage bonuses with Barbaric Smash, especial

  14. Insurrection (noun): a violent uprising against an authority or government. It more or less fits the definition, but then technically so do many anti-government riots. The 14th amendment, section 3, is specifically for those seeking government office. Thus it applies to the last President.

  15. That was not an insurrection. It was a mob. A riot. In December 1860, South Carolina seceded from the United States. Four months later it told it’s militia to fire on Fort Sumter. That was an insurrection. Those idiots thought they were doing some kind of a “protest“. They had no idea of going in there and overthrowing the government taking over the country. That’s what it insurrection is. Calling what happened an insurrection is deliberately mischaracterizing it for political purposes. What actually happened was already pretty freaking terrible. It’s both cynical and dishonest to make it soun

  16. Sounds good! Just remember to equip heavy armor before ship battles and maybe a few other tough encounters. Streetfighter doesn't do anything for your casting ability (other then reduced Recovery when Blooded, I guess), so I'd only use that combo if I to mostly ignore casting (except a few buffs) and wanted to melee only. Then again, in such a case, I'd prefer other multiclasses, I think (fighter, paladin or even cipher, monk, barbarian).

  17. AOC and Greene get onto it I would love to see those to actually fight LOL. Anyway I am sick and tired of hearing about both of them. Especially Greene and how “dangerous” she is to “democracy “. On that note I’m getting pretty tired of hearing about all the nonexistent threats to democracy. So what that a whole bunch of people thought the election was stolen. Did that change the outcome? There’s a whole lot of people who don’t believe the Moonlanding was real. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. There are 535 people in Congress. Out of that like maybe six or seven are nut jobs. Ten at the mo

  18. That is all fair, and truly my experience and love for Assassin gameplay mostly comes from Solo. Thanks for pointing this out. In a party, an Assassin multiclass can still be very helpful because it can momentarily reach very high ACC to land powerful abilities that target Fortitude. Maneuvering from invisibility to land a high accuracy Clear Out with an Assassin/Devoted wielding for instance WotEP on a group of enemy packed against your tank can be very fun . Same of course for Caster/Assassin combos. But indeed to cruise along with a balanced party and minimal micromanagement a Str

  20. That was beautiful to see. and @BoeroerI have the same feeling about the pure assassin, too much planning. I prefer something more “direct”. I liked the Trickster because he gave the feeling of “oh, I am untouchable”.

  21. Here's an old video I made to show how you can spam Gambit: To be able to spam Gambit you need very high accuracy for both weapons (to ensure you never graze/miss and all hits are converted to crits). Scordeo's Edge gives high accuracy for both weapons and Blade Cascade greatly increases your dps. For the off hand Pukestabber is fast and has a long knockdown which works vs nearly all enemies. Another great choice for the off hand is Grave Calling (Drizzt style) which can perma paralyze/freeze any enemy without immunity to dex afflictions. VS enemies with very high deflection you

  22. An SC Assassin will not only have Gambit, but Vanishing Strike which is outstanding even if you don't abuse it with duration extension shenanigans. It will be best taken advantage of with a very fast attacking dual-wielder. Considering you're going to do a combination of full attacks and fast auto-attacks, it could be more optimal to have pukestabber or rust's poignard in your off-hand and something like a sabre (Scordeo's Edge as @Haplok mentioned in your mainhand). Combine with high stealth to close in on your enemy for alpha strike and all the rogue goodies and Assassin's Slippers for a fre

Despite its appearance, it isn't toxic but it is considered unpalatable due to its bitterness. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/fungus-lichen/is-bleeding-tooth-fungus-safe.htm

  26. No, the only thing that unlocks the Assassin's passive are attack rolls from stealth or invisibility. Beguiler does nothing special for an Assassin. Actually I find it's a suboptimal combination. Maybe. Just know that SC Rogue may feel a bit less interesting at first - because you have less options. But on the other hand you'll unlock new abilites a lot faster - and spamming Gambit can be a lot of fun.

  27. I don't. That would be the same as usual (in fantasy CRPGs) and feels a bit like an appeal to everybody's secret delusions of grandeur. That was cool when it happened with Ultima IX or Throne of Bhaal or something back then. I was much younger and liked that "I'm so special" treatment. But I don't read the kinds of books nowadays that I read back then. I don't watch the same kinds of movies anymore. I grew old. I actually found it kind of refreshing to have a somewhat surprising yet anticlimactic ending and not the typical "you're important and you get it all" stuff. I mean if it would ha

  30. I think you can have 'green great dragon' if 'great dragon' is considered a compound noun. Which I think it would, as you're not saying great as an adjective but as a classification of the dragon. This also means you could accurately describe said creature as a 'great, green great dragon'...

  33. Running is strange. As a runner, I feel like over the course of any month I spend two weeks feeling out of shape, 2 weeks feeling injured, and a few days feeling amazing and fast. But those few days are really good! My wife and I spent the weekend in San Francisco for our 18th anniversary. I had the best spaghetti and meatballs ever in North Beach. Sunday morning I woke up and ran to the Golden Gate Bridge, and it was beautiful. There were a ton of people out running, cycling, and swimming in the bay. I came into running pretty late. I didn't start until I was about 35. In High Schoo

  34. I concur above @thelee, the first island, and much of the early game can be very challenging. Avoid ship fights until you have a full party, decent armor, and enough AOE to survive. Overall, what has helped me in POTD is really studying the skills I use and the defenses they attack. For example, A lot of wizard spells attack reflex, but before I can really land them, I need to debuff mobs' reflex stat (which can be done in a variety of ways). Studying the combat log , looking at damage rolls, penetration, and accuracy are very important. For instance, while sword and large shield can be g

  35. yeah, don't be afraid to hire companions on the first island. i think you have to more aggressively care about how you order your quests you do on potd. even if a quest doesn't have any skulls for you, they can still be extremely hard (for example family pride and hanging sepulchers can be extremely brutal for a non-unoptimized party even at target level). don't be afraid to back away and regroup. (family pride in fact i keep several saves in case i get stuck inside one of the houses in an impossible-to-win fight.)

  36. What do you think about this: BDD purges itself when triggered or is one-use per cast effect. Then creates barier (like Her Courage - which is actually temporary HP) for x+y*PL points for z sec, to protect character from instant death by next dmg. One still needs to react (heal or reposition), before barier will break or expire. This way one can extend BDD effect, but it's still disposable. Shield effect could be extended too, but it doesn't give immortality due to finite barier points.

  37. Tekēhu is good if you get past the initial phase. You should do the Gullet with him - it gives him more depth and shows him being more serious, benevolent and caring. He is a good boy. And as I said his subclasses are good, especially the druid one is one of the best. I my opinion the best of all companions' subclasses. If you generally loathe flamboyance or are even anti LGBT then I guess you will never like him though. Serafen's Wild Mind subclass is very unpredictable and that is something that most RPG players don't like. Most of his negative sideffects when casting powers are no
