    Newbie Question: Weaken is a bug? Is this a joke? Or are we poking fun at Blizzard?

    Newbie Question: Weaken is a bug? Is this a joke? Or are we poking fun at Blizzard?

    1) Is Weaken a bug? I mean it's a low level curse, of course it's supposed to perform crappy functions.

    2) Is calling Weaken a bugged curse a joke?

    3) Or are we poking fun at Blizzard? Blizzard is known for their incompetency and etc.

    4) Or do we hate those Spell casting/one button click-kill-all sorcs?

    Unfortunately it is a permenant bug that was programmed in

    (1. Weaken is a bug. As MM has stated it's an extra prerequisite that shouldn't have been there. As BB has stated it is actually a side order of curly fries. Buzz buzz.

    (2. It is both a curse and a joke

    (3. Blizzard also created the druid. We are beyond poking fun.

    (4. Not really, but Blood Mana would be quite useful for them. Then we could piss em off as much as Iron Maiden pisses off heavy damage melee.

    It goes BEYOND an extra prerequisite. It is a life form that multiplies on the Net and makes Windows crash.

    That couldn't crash anymore.

    CTR + ALT+ Gun to Head (delete)

    That is a garaunteed permanent solution to all past, present, and future windows problems.

    1) Let me be straightfoward if you're new to the necromancer world. If you define a "bug" as a coding error, then Weaken is not a bug.

    2) and 3) Yes, we're making fun of Blizzard. Don't take us too seriously.

    4) First, we don't hate sorcs. We don't hate anybody. Necromancers do dirty, dark, scary experiments underground, but we do love people :) Sorcs kill all by one click; Necros kill when the player goes outside to buy some mid-night snack.

    We ARE the hated...and by everybody.

    "Stupid necro....your lagging me (come to find out sorc has stock in AOL)

    "[email protected] you necro.....with all your minions...I can't see anything (check party screen...big bad barb is in level2 and I'm in 3)

    I hear it all the time...even when saving ALL their @sses from evil gloams with DV and watching my combination of my whole 12 skeletons,Gumby, merc, and PN do most of the killing.

    In closing, they need to realize IT'S A DEADMAN'S PARTY....enjoy it.

    @HoS: that new 'tar is really cool. Have a pint lad :drink:



    Red Hat?



    Try Ctrl + Alt + Right fist through screen.



    Last night I had two BSoD's crash on me followed by a reboot that failed. I promptly used Ctrl + Alt + Right fist.

    I have to say that I've had my SuSE linux crash on me more than my windows XP Professional.

    Hating for windows is so passe now... give them credit, they FINALLY put out a quality product.

    Feel free to still bag on windows ME.

    Lets discuss this over some curly fries, shall we?

    I do believe that Mad Mantis's CTRL+ALT+ RIGHT FIST is the "secret code" for making all computers work even better than windows XP.

    It's linux compatible too (all versions), but it's not Mac compatible. Nothing is.

    Mac Programs are not Mac compatible. They are special versions of the Weaken Living Code Curly Fries.

    Is that where the on switch is on those things?

    I kept hitting the 'power switch' but i recieved an error.

    but i'll give it credit, the error loaded faster than any other pc.

    When and if a Mac does something, it does it fast. Never seen a PC fly out of the window so fast.

    Yeah blood mana would be useful, well if caster monsters had mana pools (they don't correct?) that and bliz would never change it. they love the "haha we shafted them" skill.

    With the release of 1.11 it became more of a bug. It is true!

    Ah, reading over these posts remind me of the good times...

    weaken is a true curse, that is u have to put 1 point into it to get to decap.

    it would have been nice if it expentanially increase the -%recieve damage to 1%.

    OT:

    necro is truely hated by everyone. especially if you are a summoner and the other player is a barb on 56K modem.

    simply summon full skelly, magi, revive. build up the whole screen with bone wall, cast metor from trang oul and then cast poison nova (from a wand).

    watch them complain the lag and tell them to get a better connection.
