Is there a point to Self Mutilate now? Before it was… so-so early game, now it’s of questionable use even there. Let alone any longer. Only reason I took it with my respec is because it’s required for one of my attack lines. Using it in the Headbangers to test out how much less damage going from 5 to 7 defense gets me… is underwhelming at best. I don’t seem to get a decrease in damage at all. Still 10-13 on average, with an occasional 9 or 14. Doesn’t seem to net me more 0 damage eithers, which I imagine come from luck.

Self-Mutilate is definitely meant as a lower level ability. Having said that during testing I found myself using it a fair bit. The 10 ego can be useful during medium level forums as well if you want to pull yourself away slightly from death’s door during the refresh period for an attack.

It’s worth noting that Defense now causes more misses too, so even if you’re seeing similar numbers when attacked, overall it might be quite a bit lower.

So what’s luck good for then? =-p

Luck is the magical stat that helps you a little in many different ways. I’ve never outlined all the ways it helps you because I want it to be a little mysterious Log in to see images!

If you’re trying to build a powerful character you’d be better off increasing you defense or offensive skills, as you will be able to notice and plan around them better.

I’d like to use it more in the future for those who bother to spec it. One of the projects we have on the table right now would be a good candidate.

The new quote function looks really good. Maybe have us quote their replies sometimes as well ? Then it would start looking like an actual forum thread.

Bad poetry has become a beast too.

Bad poetry is doing more than it used to. Everything else is of course doing less. I do feel like I’m getting a lot more dodging now, although I’d prefer to see more effect per point of defense in damage reduction. I do notice a difference between low and high ego in my attack, which is good, which likely means that each point in attack is worth a fair bit. The worth of defense per point just seems lower. Did you do the math, with chance of missing + ego deflected, to see the average ego each point of defense saves?

i can pwn threads in rp forum with one hit from this now.

Threaten to Contact Authorities

    * Attack (60 - 75)
    * Sexiness -6
    * Refresh 2

It did about 99 damage before (avg) and now does about 120 damage. I begin to feel like I can take the nuke forum at a gain.

Level 10 Emo Kid

“Gloomy Gus”

Just finished playing with my Emo Kid and Camwhore, I feel that Camwhore is now over powered.

I’ve used both character through pwn’ing the nuclear power plant forum 4 times each.

My Emo Kid (Pic)basic stats:

(with all the best items)

Off – 14

Def – 11

Ego – 390

Tears – 240

Bad poetry does 200 damage, while I have issues does around 70 reaching to 90 when ego is low (<50 ego)

took a lot longer then before the finish off a thread dued to the lower damage.

Defense makes up for the lower damage with a lot more miss.

Overall, it took me on average 3-4 Smileprin XR™ XR™ and 2-3 Ex-Girlfriend’s Cologne to pwn the nuclear forum each time. Which is 1 more of each pot I needed before balance. I also got killed once.

My Camwhore (PicsPlz) stats:

(with only mid level item upgrades)

Off: 10

Def: 5

Ego: 370

Sexiness: 133

Bad poetry does 169 unbuffed, 200 with 1xPump me up, 231 with 2xPMU

Report to authority does 110-120 unbuffed , 130 -150 1x PMU, 145-170 2xPMU

I was killing threads with 3-4 attacks, and thanks to the buffed Pump Me Up, my ego never fell below 50%

I was able to pwn the nuclear forum only using 2 L’ORLY lipstick each time.

Congratulations, Evil Trout! You just made the most common mistake in MMORPGs: the Over-Nerf!

I played through the Nuclear Plant forum with my level 10 Emo Kid and Camwhore, and the Camwhore is significantly more powerful than the Emo now. One major problem is that you quadruple-nerfed Emo Kid’s damage:

-increased Tears cost

-reduced base damage of attack

-reduced Low Ego bonus damage

-reduced bonus damage from Offense because the new formula punishes Emo Kids for having low base attacks

I have 17 Offense, and my most powerful Emo attack cannot break the 100 damage mark unless I have less than 10% of my life left. On the other hand, my Camwhore’s most powerful attack does +130 damage, thanks to the new Offense formula.

Did you make offense and defense cost equal amounts by increasing the cost of defense or decreasing that of offense?

Defense is seriously expensive once it gets up there – I reset and was able to get back to 10 offense and 14 defense, an improvement of one defense point over my previous build. In order to get that extra point, I had to give up the TXT attacks and 3 points each in Upkeep and Luck. I have a feeling it might be beneficial to drop offense points for defense gains now, though, especially with the harder hitting special attacks and the forum strength nerfs.
