    That sounds really harsh.

    Man, I know some people love bashing, but for the love of me I couldn't imagine a worse way to spend copious amounts of my free time. Watching paint dry is a close alternative, but then at least I could maybe gain introspection and become a bodhisatva.

    Who needs this grind as a hoop to jump through for PK adequacy, really?
    Yeah, it sucks. Just means I gotta make a larger buffer between 99/100. 101.25 wasn't enough!  :((

    I love bashing :\ (honestly, this is just a reason to see my new signature Haven found for me)

    That makes no sense to me. You can kill 2-3 Xorani in Xaanhal and gain back the XP you lose from dying to PK.

    I really, eally hate bashing. I find no enjoyment in it at all. I only ever did it because it was a requirement for PK to nab endgame for all the essential buffs. And I only ever delved into PK because it felt stupid to me to RP being rough and an Infernal without well... having the skills to back it up.

    Honestly, I'd make a fully automated autobasher that moves and kills everything in sight but I'm almost positive I might fall asleep at the computer or end up watching a movie or needing to leave for some reason and return to find myself shrubbed. So I refrain from the temptation to overcome my distaste for bashing.

    I understand that, really, and I don't mean to be contrary, but what we're discussing here is a loss that takes approximately two minutes two remedy.

    Now I do agree that you shouldn't lose enhancements on level loss - after all, we don't lose our purchased racial skills. It would make for a more consistent design.

    If I die I just go Teradrim and trololol my way through Xaanhal. By the time I get to the end I'm like, 5% ahead of where I was BEFORE I died, or further, depending on double xp and stuff.

    @Haven, I don't see why you hate bashing so much. 15-25 minutes and you can run through the entire instance of Xaanhal, because at endgame level your crit rate is high enough that you just curbstomp everything and effectively get like 1-3% (dependent on your level). Hell, I know sometimes you sit there and do nothing for 15 minutes :P Use that idle time to curbstomp some Xorani. :P

    Also, I hate how the ignore function isn't a 2 way street. :/ Perhaps that should get changed.

    @Zsadist: For me, there is no interesting element to fighting mobs. I can't counter their attacks. Their offenses are primarily cycles between: stun/prone, blackout, impale/web, superhigh damage. Maybe some loki or paralysis or a limb break. I'm limited to 2-3 bashing attacks more or less per class. Snoooooozzzzeee.

    At most I'm having to decide whether or not to run one or two rooms away. Otherwise I'm just whittling away their health and watching text scroll with little to no change. Hitting 1 alias every minute per mobtype per room.... Meh. There's just no thrill to it really. It does not even come close to actual PK where every second counts.

    @Haven. Yes, PK does have a more interesting element to it, but most top tier fighters have some sort of offensive system in placed that runs a few tables of variables, if/then statements, and triggers to decide what venom to use next, when to Absolve/Annihilate, etc etc etc and all they have to do to start their combat is a single hotkey/alias because after that, its all automated. Is that not the same thing as bashing?

    @Zsadist: It's why I mostly manual my offense. While I understand there is a certain pride or what have you in watching your creation go and achieve success... I need to be able to be doing something.

    @Haven: If you join Bloodloch, you can jsut get dragged through everything with @Ezalor...no need to bash then.

    While I've been attempting to learn to use combat AI, I find it -incredibly- stressful. I learned how to fight with a solid curing system and a series of aliases, some basic highlights and a very simplistic tracker. Now I have a shoddy curing system and a reasonable decent AI and it makes me panic every time I try to fight. I dislike offensive AI a lot. 

    Also, there's a lot less adrenaline and reward involved with bashing than there is in PK. PK has some truly amazing seat-of-your-pants moments. Bashing is a tedious, dull means to an end. It took me 8 years to have my first level 80 character, to give you an idea of how very little I enjoy bashing. :P

    I rage that I'm forced to bash even though I already got endgame because losing levels affects my PK enhancements at random. >_< I loathe bashing! My plan was once that I got endgame to never bash again. I don't even care to pursue the augment enhancers. Why do this to me Aetolia?! Why?!

    I really wish once you got the main enhancement point, you kept it and thus left your essential PK stuff (like +bal/+eq) enhancements unaffected. Losing it at random and waiting for a reincarnation to adjust the loss of stuff blows.

    /rant
    I know how you feel.

    I -loathe- grinding/bashing. I find it so tiresome and boring that I would prefer gouging my eyes out, but alas leveling is for some reason the only way I can accumulate haven points to expand my haven. Days like this I wish there was some sort of token that provides 10 haven points.

    That's not entirely true. If you die to PK, you lose approxiametly 0.03 XP (lose 0.01 from natural deaths) every 2 seconds or so (this is as you pass through the halls), aside from the rough amount you lose at death. Let's say it takes roughly 1 minute to pass through the halls, that would be 1.0 XP.

    Now at endgame as you are trying to kill Xorani, you'll be receiving roughly 0.05 xp per kill, that means you'll have to kill at least around 18 xorans to get back what you lost, meaning half an Xaanhal run. Frankly that sounds really tiresome and I can sympathize with Haven.

    Dont forget dying while hunting. That just makes it worse.

    I'm slightly confused about hitting 'save as' has destroyed your system. Surely that would mean you have a copy floating around somewhere.
  • TozToz Member Posts: 2,497 ✭✭✭✭✭
    He meant to save as, and hit save instead. Meaning he overwrote his CURRENT settings with something blank, I guess?

    Me and @Ilyon do a lesser against @Kinder and @Calipso ....

    They run, we take it.

    @Benedicto, @Connor, @Calipso come back. Okay nbd, we split, regroup like 2 rooms away, get our priorities straight, come back in to fight.


    Oh unicorns, suddenly it's like 2v4, 2v5, or higher.

    WTF? Just two bros out for a little 2v2-2v3 action. The rest is just uncalled for.
