There's been quite a dearth of combat logs lately so I figured I'd post some of the ones I have lying around along with my commentary of what's happening in them.
CMud's colour logging seems to be a bit buggy (big surprise) so some of the colouring is all funky.
Bloodborn vs Conner in the Sect arena. I've been fighting with some self-imposed handicaps lately; this log is with no mindsurge ritual, no paralysis venom, and lowering my strength to a minimum. Basically seeing if I can truelock people for kills rather than the traditional Bloodborn annihilate. I slash with clumsiness in this log but it's not the best choice, especially against a Luminary since they straight up ignore clumsiness affliction.
3:43:04 Conner gets disrupt locked and never really gets out of it. This is why it's important to prioritize the confusion affliction fairly high. Even setting aside its ridiculous hindering capabilities, if you continue to ignore confusion (as some balance-only classes do) you open yourself up for a disrupt lock that you won't get out of.
3:44:04 Conner eats goldenseal when he has asthma affliction. System error or lag, whatever caused it, this is what gets him killed. The lock is sealed on my next combo.
3:44:10 onwards, my offense "bugs" out. I actually run out of things to whisper so my aff list is empty, this screws up my dwhisper commands.
3:44:24 bug in offense, I forgot to set a limiter onto mesmerize, the result being that I spammed it like crazy.
3:44:39 onwards, same "bug" out, ran out of things to envenom.
Overall, for myself what I took away from this fight is that I need to fix my ritual script (you can see at the beginning my system craps out and fails the rituals a few times, I also slash with athame instead of rewielding scythe), touch up on my hidden detection (assumed recklessness way too often). Need to expand my offense post-lock so it's not slashing nothing and dwhispering nothing. Luminaries are very annoying with angel care as I had to constantly reapply the truelock after it was already sealed. Feed is odd in that some curing commands are blocked and some aren't. I've actually removed mesmerize from my offense since it isn't a requisite to feed, paralysis does just fine.
