    So they can shift the OP-ness to another class.
    In my opinion ... only a DK with 2H stand a chance in the arena ATM. Tanks were made wimps.
    I have met few former "immortals" ... I couldn't even take 2/10 of their HP before ... now they are getting killed easily.
    I don't know if they are not adopted to the new changes yet or they are doomed to be killed ... I will have to get more matches before say anything.
    But anyway the arena is a one big joke.
    It depends on gravity control and if "they" let us use it.

    That is true, as a tank i have a very hard time at 5v5 now, even though i was at a decent level, arena now needs a whole new build.
    Not that i will make one till the pvp rebalance.

    I suppose, but if pigs could play hopscotch, wouldn't cockroaches be the dominant race?

    Hi gurus

    Havent done any crafting .... so
    1. Would it make any major difference if craft this with the elemental stones, other than elemental resistance ?
    2. what happened to the GOPs? Should I strip it naked b4 crafting ?

    I'm not one of them, but I can answer your Qs.:D
    Besides the elemental resistance and effect, the weapon is going to change all its stats (base stats and enchantments) randomly, so you might get better values or crappier ones. It's a double edged sword.:rolleyes:
    You can't use items in the workbench if they have GoPs, gems and runes in them, so yeah, you have to get them out first.

    Random question but has _Baragain_ taken another break? Missing the insightful comments around DK. Particularly would love to hear thoughts on DK since last release. Has been some general comments around how much harder it is for DK since release but I am enjoying the wisdom tree and still having fun

    Seems a waste without asking him to grab a six pack at the same time... and just how far away is the shop?

    _Baragain_ has been very busy these last few weeks. So much so that Sunday he reluctantly abandoned (timed out from) an Inf II run of the 4th mini. We were grouped at the time.

    Thanks TwiliShadow . Good to know he is still around and active. Game has been very busy on its own with the new release and events without also investing as much time as _Baragain_ does in some of the calculations and guides posted. Hope you were able to finish the mini. I got as far as the regen rune which is a bit further than last Dragan event. Will chase down the completion achievement next time event comes around :)

    I'm back... real life can be a pain in the rear sometimes. I've barely had time to play, let alone write. But, I had a slow day today and I don't have the Dragan event vying for my very limited time, so time to catch up on about 3-4 weeks of stuff.
    I have a counter question... Why didn't they do this sooner? DKs have higher base HP than the other classes, and Rangers have higher HP than Mages. They always have. The reasoning behind that is that DKs are supposed to be the durable class (tanks), while the ranged classes were supposed to be the damage dealers. Once, a long time ago, this was balanced by the items that existed and skills damages. With the more recent changes, it only makes sense that the base damage be treated like base HP, but in reverse. So I ask again... what took DSO so long to arrive at this decision? I know this next opinion is going to be reallllly unpopular, but why doesn't SW/RA/SM gear have slightly higher base damage since DK gear has slightly higher base HP and Armor? I've read a little about the recent complaints about PvP, so I acknowledge that until DSO figures out how to truly and fairly balance PvP, this sort of recommendation is unwise, but it would make sense as an eventual goal. These changes should not prevent a DK from soloing efficiently, but rather should make the DPS classes true DPS'ers.
    Now this is the kind of question this thread was designed for!
    The definition of insanity is repeating the same experiment twice and expecting three unicorns to go on a trip to candy mountain. If the double rainbow turns into a triple rainbow, then you know that the simplest solution is probably the right one.
    Oh, they took my freaking kidney!

    You sure about that? It looks suspiciously like a single edge blade to me.

    How many cravens does it take to overpower one coward? And how much vodka does a coward have to drink to be able to stand for one minute in Mortis' Courtroom on both legs?

    For more accurate answer you better ask the British media since they know everything in advance :D
