T5 Enhancements - Not a Pretty Sight

I don't usually write things that put myself in a non-positive light.  I mean, I can poke fun at myself and have a laugh about things I've done, things I've said, and encounters that I've been a part of, but this is different.

This posting has to do with enhancement.  More specifically Tier5 105 Orange enhancements.  I recently got my 105 Ashur Bow to +10, and I should be happy right?  Who wouldn't want to strut around their server with the only-one-of-it's-kind, gleaming-away-at-its-full-enhancement-level weapon?  Well, me.

Get Interactive! Participate in my Poll!

Hey everyone!  Since my readership has grown quite a bit in the last several months, I was curious where my visitors come from.  Not meaning your place on the Earth, I see that with one of my analytics tools, but from what OutSpark Server or other host you most often play on.

I know I have quite a bit of friends from Bijou (my home server) that visit here, so I'm thinking that might be in the top spot, but who knows, maybe it won't be!  Anyway, so please answer my poll, it's located on the right side of the screen just below the 'About Me' section.  Again, this is not a contest, just something to cure my curiosity.  The poll will be open until Christmas.

If you'd like to give me more details, feel free to comment on this blog posting.  Thanks everyone!

A Break In The Clouds..

Like a break in the clouds, tonight you were there,
For the briefest of moments, again we a pair.

Unknown to all, a secret shared by two.
Quietly you arrived, merely out of the blue,
The time together we spent, it lasted the length of a charm,
I can't help but wonder will this cause me more harm.

Harmful or not, I cherished those hours,
Like a bee all alone in a field full of flowers.
I'm soaring again, but how long will it last,
Reminiscing on days, days long since passed.

Sadness.... Missing You.

 Somewhere along the paths you and I took,
The lines got blurred with one simple hook.
A kindred spirit, our thoughts were shared,
Never had I thought my soul would be bared.
Unflappable and unbothered, the facade I chose,
Yet somehow you got in, god only knows.
Steely and uncaring, the persona you portray,
Yet somehow I got to you in my own special way.
Never the same, my life will it be,
A simple equation, always you + me.
You chose to leave and I can never find fault,
My heart aches like a wound smothered in salt.
But I am still around and you are nowhere near,
A heart forever singing with no one left to hear...

Congratulations!  You've discovered one of the Holiday Scramble Screenies!

Leviathan's Nest - Another Nerf?

Since a lot of my guildmates are capped or just bored, we've been doing a few Leviathan's Nest runs again trying to complete sets for some of our alts.  Since we've started this past week, we've noticed that LN has changed a little bit.  A lot of the challenge has been taken away and while this takes some of the fun away for us, I can see how the community as a whole can definitely benefit from the changes.

Frustration of the Day - November 11, 2010

I really thought they fixed this..... I guess I was wrong.

If you've never experienced this, what it is is when you wait four hours for the next KQ round to start, you're lucky enough to be one of the first 20 (or 15 or w/e your KQ max participation is) to get in and that "Now Loading" just doesn't go from white to blue....

Load Screen crashes are FTL.

That's about 6m experience I didn't get.  *sigh*

Stacking Has Returned! *throws confetti*

With last week's patch, included with it was the removal of the ability for non-mage classes to 'stack' damage.  Simply, this was defined as the ability to simultaneously run auto-attacks during your skill spam.  This resulted in a sort of 'double-attack' as your auto-attack always ran in the background while you launched skills at your targets.  Many players, to my surprise, were unaware of this.  Many claimed to have never done it, but really they have, they just never noticed it.  It was impossible NOT to do it unless you went around 1-hitting everything.

Stacking was essential for any class or subclass that chose, or was forced via prestige subclass choice, that used a lighter damage weapon.  In the case of the SharpShooter, the choice was made mainly because of the bow's high rate of fire, 1.0/1.1 secs per attack for the bow vs 1.3/1.4 secs per attack for the xbow.  While kiting, this makes no difference, but in a standing still situation, it makes a world of difference.

SharpShooter Skill Builds

There aren't an overabundance of SharpShooters on Bijou, nor for any server for that matter, but those of us that have gone this route are generally pretty chatty with each other.  Some classes like Gladiators are so secretive over everything, their builds, their empowerments, their equipment.... My SharpShooter is a work-in-progress and basically an open book.  I'll show you whatever I can, if I can (can't show you bound stuff other than posting screenies), and offer whatever advice I can give based on my own playstyle and experience.

That being said, I get asked a lot by other players about my SharpShooter, so here's a basic rundown of my Archer and my hopes on the future:

Fatal's Mailbag - November 1, 2010

Since quite a few have left me messages, I figure I would try to address them all in a blog posting rather than clutter up the message board.... so here we go!
