A bad case of farming (in General)

Inspect the character named Zeecha and look at his recent battles - Lucky for me he's not in a clan :(

Argh! 33K score and 138K PR.
I will have to take your char out of my favorite list: 36$ and 9 exp are just not enough...

Fast way to help is to untrain EC on Lucifer and put it in HP instead.

He's just fiddling with a cool strategy. The peanut's stated goal was to see how far he could get with very very few HP. I'd suggest instead dumping one of the EC's into AMF to prevent farming by extremely small magic, but if not, we can just revel in the hilarity. :D

Unless he starts losing money or exp, I think he should not worry about being farmed: it does not damage him in the least (except for clan points).

I don't really think he is fiddling with anything.

Its a very carefully planned strategy.

I figure what he is doing is having a strategy that is good only vs tanks. But its good vs high level tanks so when he attacks them he gets super duper rewards. He may only be able to win vs 5 or 6 higher level tanks, but he does it well. It seems he does not care about clan points (which he loses a real lot). And if you dont care about clan bonuses and points, it does not matter how many battles you lose (except for ego purposes).

So he makes these high level tanks have -xxx str and -xxx dex so they hit him for no damage while he eventually kills them.

This theory was shown to me by my clanmate Duke, so credit him with this idea not me.

Just curious: if your opponent has 0 STR and a big weapon, how much damage should he be able to deal (without considering AC)?
Similarly, if he has 0 DX against your 30K DX, and some + on his weapon, how often does he hits you?

Um I take about 100 damage without armor against an opponent with 1 ST and a big weapon - I can get this down to about 50 with armor though.
