I liked Lyrella's boots - I love the visionary silver colour.

It's your character, so you can pronounce it how you like, but Cymru is actually pronounced as though it were written as Cumry!

Haha I know, I realised some time later. Please don't tell my Welsh mother...

Condolences! This is one reason why my first Singer is only level 47. I'm not sure how to avoid such situations.

With a 7 second stun duration; WC, WC, stop. Let merc kill some. WC, WC, stop. That is what I should have been doing :p

Thanks very much for the suggestion, which makes perfect sense, and which I wasn't smart enough to realize myself. :)

I made a singer barbarian...


Woah.. what happens here?
From 3,569 to 0 health in 3 or 4 frames with 75 lightning resistance.
Do stacked War Cry missiles trigger a ton of invisible bolts or something?

It’s all that I can think of to be honest... I need to sit down and actually click through it to see what happens - didn’t fancy it yesterday though :p

Well the Basin wiki is down (again) so I can't confirm it, but iirc a bolt's damage is [mlvl/2]*2-1.
Rocky Waste its area level is 75, so then a bolt would deal [75/2]*2-1=73. No clue if these bolts are increased by the P#, but if they are, then it should be 125%, so 91.25 per bolt. Then after 75 lightning resistance it would be ~22.8125 per bolt.

And you took 1,738 damage in a single frame.
Where did all that damage come from? :mad:

War Cry is a nova-like skill after all and it shoots out a massive amount of missiles, so I figured maybe all those dozens of War Cry missiles that "hit" the Scarab all triggered a bolt.
Well, just a though..


Anyway, excuse the nerd talk, rip mr Singer :<

No, no, please continue to pick apart my death. This is how you avoid the next potential death

Matilda has reached guardianship, and will be a CS runner. First though, there are some pieces of gear that she needs and some levelling to do! :)

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, she dead...

This is the first deeds I've had where I feel it is primarily just bad luck, rather than me doing something stupid. I could've reacted a bit faster, but mostly the merc death/charge decision was badly/perfectly timed :p

Nooo! Poor Kitteh characters (=kittens?).

About the scarabs: Since war cry is so powerful at preventing enemies striking at you and you can taunt ranged attackers toward you, doesn't it make sense to absolutely overdo MDR and lightning absorbing gear? I had a somewhat similar experience with my leap barbarian where lightning enchanted enemies were the most dangerous for the northlander duo (each leap triggering new bolts). They would not have made it safely without Blackhorns Face I believe.

Thanks for the warning by the way, I didn't know war cry triggered multiple bolts like that.
