  1. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Thanks for the info, here is the updated data!:

    Snake Charmer:
    1,140 * 35% Blade =399
    1,140 + 399 = 1,539


    1,140 * 35% Blade * 35% Blade = 938
    1,140 + 938 = 2,078
  2. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Here's why DPP is difficult to calculate: nearly every top tier spell has gimmicks, utility, or something else that sets it apart from just dealing raw damage. There is of course nothing wrong with...

    Ratbeard: Ice Wizards are too strong in the Arena!

    Also Ratbeard: Ice, you get -45% Legion Shields, and we're prolly gonna ban Shrike from PvP

    :wacko:
  4. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Damage Per Pip can be pretty inconsistent, so we should only focus on the base damage of spells.




    Balance has the weakest Blades out of every school because they're universal. Plus, Balance...
  5. [TEST REALM] Re: Spell Changes, Spring 2021 Test Realm.

    Yeah, I can see why reducing Disarm's cost makes sense now. Though, I do think that Steal Ward should be kept at 2 Pips. Although it is more in line with Steal Charm, it clearly is superior....

    Re: Happiest W101 memories

    My happiest memory of Wiz? Hmm, I really don't know where to begin! It's always exhilarating when you snag a rare decoration from the Bazaar, though I think my happiest memory was decorating my Royal...
  7. [TEST REALM] Re: Spell Changes, Spring 2021 Test Realm.

    Kudos to Ratbeard for putting all of these changes in a list, it truly does help!

    I feel a bit uneasy about a lot of these changes, especially the buffs to Steal Ward, Legion Shield, and Disarm....
  8. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    My point is that KingsIsle has shown a pattern of ignoring our feedback, especially during Test Realm, and so I can't trust them to not go ahead with these poorly designed Blade/Trap/Bubble nerfs and...
  9. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Something else to keep in mind:



    The nearly universally hated Pet Update still went through into Live Realm somehow
    The Devs don't listen to feedback for Test Realm anyways (cough bug...
  10. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    School identity of course extends beyond just stats, although they do play the most visible role. That said, I do feel like this conversation would benefit by exploring the identity of each school...
  11. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Exactly. KingsIsle doesn't seem to understand that each school needs their strengths and weaknesses, and by erasing these unique aspects they will only shove school identity further down the drain.

    [TEST REALM] Re: Golems for all!

    That may be true, but how do the Golem spells tie into that problem? I would argue that the solution to the inequity between Resist and Damage is to set customized limits for each school that allow...
  13. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    [/LIST]
    I wanted to add that this setup of Blades is more likely than hitting with two sharpened and 8 regular Blades, but not as realistic as it could be. It does not include Traps and Bubbles, but...
  14. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Basically, in PvE damage is capped at 150% and Resist at 101%. You can go over these limits, but each percent of damage becomes exponentially less effective if you do. In PvP the limits are 100%...
  15. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    On paper it doesn't look like Ice's buffs are being lowered below everyone else's, but you have to consider that the Ice school was already weak to begin with. Equalizing everything will therefore...

    @Eric Stormbringer @Patrick FairyStalker @Ratbeard @Sparck

    Here is a graph that takes both percentile and base damage into account, along with Critical. Be sure to reserve judgement until the more...

    Re: Wizard101 Dank Memes

    Hey, gaming companies- if you make quality games people will buy it. You don't need to rope in innocent kids with microtransactions to make money!

    ...
  18. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Equalizing every Blade to 40% would have been more acceptable, though it'd still be dismantling school identity. The system of buffs in this game is balanced, and as the old adage goes- "If it ain't...

    [TEST REALM] Re: Golems for all!

    Just how a universal stat cap disproportionately hurts certain schools, giving everybody the same Golem spell doesn't equalize the equation. Storm, Fire, and Life are never meant to have such...
  20. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Exactly. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against PvP-centric updates- Raven knows we need a new and improved 5th Age! It is only when such updates come at the cost of the vastly larger PvE...
  21. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    @Patrick FairyStalker

    Like I said with the Final Bastion equations, they are inherently flawed because you're not taking Pierce, Critical, base and percentage damage into account. All of these...
  22. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    No, of course not! Storm already has ample ​compensation for it's minimal defenses, via it's overwhelming offensive capabilities. Sure, it makes for a riskier and more skilled playthrough, but it's...
  23. Re: Reagent: Frosted Flax (discovered by Ice Scout Talent)

    I wonder what this reagent is used for! My first guess would be unlocking Adventure Talents, though I can't be certain. It does look quite cool though!

    [TEST REALM] Re: Golems for all!

    In all my 11+ years of playing Wiz, I've only seen one Wizard who effectively managed to juggle two schools- an Ice Wizard dabbling into Myth. It's certainly possible, though I would argue you can...

    Re: "National Unicorn Day!"

    These bundles are more fairly priced and valuable than ones we've seen in the past, though the cost should be ~4,000-6,000 Crowns IMO.
