Question about PR Jump!!! (in General)

Icewindvz July 3 2005 1:25 AM EDT

2 days ago, my PR just jumped from 260k to 300k.
I am sure that I did not add any NW to my character or get any bigger Tattoo.
Is there an NW or Tattoo PR change that I missed?

Any good heart admins or experience players please let me know…T.T

This is mostly an unmentioned change, but really it's more of a bug fix. It use to be that if I didn't change anything around in my equipment list, such as equip, unequip, use the blacksmith, whatever, then my PR to MPR differance would be the same.
The fact that the difference remained the same spite my tattoo gaining new levels, was an indicator that the PR was not correct, but rather lagging behind. This was sort of a good thing cause it meant my effectiveness was going up even though my PR wasn't.

If I waited about 10k to 20k levels of my tattoo and then changed something in my equipment, then I would see a huge PR jump everytime. Basically the game forgot to readjust PR when tattoos raised levels.

This bug has now been fixed as of two or three days ago. At about flush or sometime there after the game recalculates your PR from everything, including your tattoo's new level. Therefore, your PR to MPR difference can now only be a day old in this respect.

You can see this in action by not training all day and by not changing your equipment. Even though you'll see your tattoo raise in levels, you won't see any increase in PR. Then the next day you'll see a sudden "jump" once again. That jump is now your corrected PR that accounts for your tattoo's new found powers.

Personally, I don't know why Jon hasn't poste this bug fix.

Shade... his pr went up... not down.

It could be a fix for a small bug that affected him, making his pr go up...

Shade read my post, I'm 99% sure he just never changed his equipment for the past couple of weeks and his PR didn't reflect his tattoo's contribution to power accurately. Now jon has changed t so that flush fixes this and recalculates it once a day.

It's not a bug, it's a bug fix.

Nevermind, I misread you. It is a fix and I've explained it in detail. I was going to make a post about it a day ago, just never got around to it.

Oh wow the even Great "Jonathan" replay my post...
Am I the special one or what...

Special thanks to "GunProofVestax", now that you mentioned, I did realize when my Tattoo leveled my PR did not increase at all.

Sadly this is a bug, I thought Jon was sympathize our non-loaner Tattoo player...T.T

Jon has fixed the bug even better by making the PR corrections happen more often. It's been a day or so since he did that, but I figured I should just add it in at some point.
