    (Sorry if a repost, but) Meteor bug?

    Be this true, or be this false...? Does Casting Meteors create some sort of bug, where you'll get less exp. than you else would? I've seen it spammed several times in Baalruns, people claiming that killing with meteor gives less exp than killing with anything else.

    no such bug exists. All the rumors are false. Check the 1.10 Bug Reports & Suggestions forum for the original thread.

    edit: crap it happened again! my post appeared in front of itsPizzarific's when he posted before me!

    Well it's not true, but I'll give a short explenation why some people started the rumor:

    When you kill a creep in an 8 player game you get the most exp, a little more than the rest of the party. Now, meteor can deal a lot of damage, thus in some cases, kill fast. So the meteor caster might get more exp than the rest because he kills most.

    Some peeps don't appreciate the free exp they're getting and ask the meteor to be stopped so they can kill more themselves and get more exp for their own.

    That's the truth, the whole truth AND nothing but the truth ;)

    i think it got started cause it s realy anoing to have the entire screen full of flames and you can t see anything any more... i realy prefer hammerdins spamming hammers, they do also alot of damage but you can still see anything else than roaring flames. my 2 cents

    recently, someone who i *used* to play with, told me that when we enter baal, i have to unparty and not kill him. because (8 player game) 4 people in the killing party is good exp, but 5 or more is very poor.

    what BS. i really regret not playing with him anymore, he was otherwise a cool person.

    My favorite ritual.

    Although I really can't tell if it was my CE or a hammer that killed it. :rolleyes:

    At lvl 97 the only monsters that give good exp are Diablo and Baal. When we did Baal+Dia runs to level the ETFonTop_Leader in the first ladder, the lower chars unpartied when it was time to kill baal and dia. So that's in fact a smart thing to do ;)

    PS: But the meteor thing is BS ^_^

    HoD
