    Re: Updated Insane Bolt Spell

    Every DoT also costs 3 rounds of momentum, but they are not blatantly imbalanced. They break 2 shields and force a triage. There is no direct counter to removing the first 2 shields. The only true...

    Re: Updated Insane Bolt Spell

    Yes, lightning elf was audited. I was specifically responding to your comment on how DoTs have counters, but this new insane bolt somehow doesn't. Lightning elf was my closest base of comparison....

    Re: Updated Insane Bolt Spell

    The best response is put on another shield.

    People rarely have 3 of the same shield in PvP. But, for the sake of argument, let's say I'm in a situation where I do.

    Situation 1: my opponent uses...

    Re: Updated Insane Bolt Spell

    @Torpzun26 is correct.

    I forgot how to do binomial probability as well but we love online calculators lol. Here are the chances:

    Re: Why Is Everything White..?

    This is so beautifully put. As a POC, I've been conditioned (by well-meaning people) to think about my skin color every single day. This thread is no exception. When I play wiz, I frankly don't want...
  6. Re: macOS users & Spring 2021 Update issues.

    I saw these instructions somewhere else and it worked for me as a Big Sur user.
  7. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Based on your logic, especially as it pertains to low levels (who use more traps and bubbles):
    Death got 10-5+25 = 30% buff (curse, blade nerf, bubble). Dark pact got a change, so I guess you could...
  8. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    A full scale audit is what they've been planning for a while - resist changes, TC changes, more trained utility cards, shadow pip, critical, etc. - were hinted months before implementation, but they...
  9. [TEST REALM] Re: Spell Changes, Spring 2021 Test Realm.

    I have a feeling @Eric Stormbringer had a lot to do with these changes and I wanted to give huge props.

    Honestly these are all beautiful. These were some ancient spells (Disarm, Donate Power,...
  10. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    One last thing I'll add is that the blades of 2009 are very different from today. Nowadays, it's very easy for most people to get 3 different sharpen blades in their disposal (dragoon item card, pet...
  11. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Yes, the people with problems will be players. And players exist in both PvE and PvP.

    Why should PvE players care? Because standardizing blades promotes equitability while maintaining school...
  12. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    This is a double standard that exposes personal bias rather than being equitable. This is because an equal and opposite argument can be made:


    See this? We could go in circles all day.

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

    Nah, I didn't say nor mean that. I deliberately detached PvP from my explanations.

    Should we give ice a 100,000 damage, 2 pip hit to make ice more playable? After all, the mobs won't care!

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

    I'm unsure of how to address blade changes if I can't discuss blade-stacking. Like I said previously, I couldn't care less if everyone got a 35% or a 40% blade. The point is they are the same. This...
  15. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    I'm genuinely glad you asked. Firstly, I don't claim to know what exactly happens in the KI discussion rooms. But the reason that 40% blades are significantly better than 30% is the idea of...
  16. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Every king art has the pierce blade. The difference is that ice and life have another effect. KI decided to ignore the pierce blade in their pip-cost analysis for these spells specifically.

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

    This is an unfair comparison because life and ice king arts have addition effects. You also ignore the equalizing effect of enchantments.

    Let's compare Frost Giant and Storm Lord, since they both...
  18. [TEST REALM] Re: Test Realm is open! "Spring 2021 Update"

    Ice and Life (and death) have been the top tier solo schools since the beginning of time. This is especially true for newer players who don't have the proper crowns gear to get resist/defense on...

    Re: Not all Audits are Nerfs

    Glad KI is looking at older spells :)

    One that still bothers me is Disarm (remove 1 blade for 1 pip). It's just objectively worse than steal charm in every way.

    Others like guidance and...

  22. Re: 111% of pierce+205damage vs 82%resist=

    My guess is 3730:
    (835+300) * 3.05 * 1.10 - 26*3 = 3730.
    Enchanted, 205% damage, 10% shrike, and three 26 flat resist jewels.

    Re: Status of PvP

    I did magus and grand/legendary PvP "back in the day" as well. Nowadays, only legend really exists. You'll find that the meta-game is also incredibly offensive. Many people also have perfect gear. If...
  24. Re: Darkmoore and its terrible drop rate

    I agree. I think I never wound up getting a full DM set on any of my 3 top level wizards.

    On a slightly unrelated note, this is why I've never complained about Dragoon gear. Yes, it takes an...

    Re: PvP Glitch ( Auto-loss)

    Since it's sooo close to 0, I'd guess it's a rounding error. Like maybe a DoT was rounded down from 100.333 to 100 on display, but rounded up behind the scenes. I guess it's near impossible to tell...
