    Identifying Items

    I always wondered the game mechanics concerning items. One thing I was wondering was how item stats are generated when identified.

    Is an anni preset (as soon as it drops onto the ground) to be 15/15/5 before you even identify it? Or does it randomly generate the moment you do?

    The item's stats are determined when it drops, not when it is identified.

    Which contradicts Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. So go easy with identifying Annis or you'll collapse into a black hole.

    If you identify an item, then the game rolls back to a point when the item was UNID, it'll still have the same stats, right? So, for instance, if you ID an Anni and it gets...10/10/6, then the game rolls, it's time to trade that Anni while it's unid, right?

    Yes, that's correct. The Anni's stats was determined when it actually dropped, not when it is identified.

    If item's stats are determined upon identifying, I wonder how many rollback cause by hackers will happen per day?

    What you mean to say is:
    "If an item's stats were determined upon indentification, I wonder how many more rollbacks there would be per day."

    I know you sometimes have trouble with English. I can relate. In High School I had a lot of trouble speaking Spanish (I took Spanish as my foreign language...) and a lot of the things you say I can imagine messing up on were I to attempt them in Spanish...

    That's a good point. Until you take it to Cain, Schroedinger's cat is neither dead nor alive.

    Once you get to Cain though, the cat's most definitely dead. Smelly too.
