Item Naming Question (in General)

From the naming page
Naming a weapon increases to-hit enchantment by 3% (rounding up) and damage enchantment by 150.
Does that mean if i name an arrow it adds 150 to the X?

I think he's clarified this, let me see if I can find it, or this might be part of the whole ammo bug issue and unresolved.

"The naming bonus to xDmg has been changed to a flat 150 rather than 3%. +hit is unchanged (still 3% rounding up)."


I would assume since he hasn't specifically said otherwise and no one's tested it...someone send over some seekers that are not named and I'll test it.

I don't think this applies to the damage modifier of ammunition though.

I'm still trying to get a set of seekers so I can test this...

Try auctions.

Or specify what type of seekers ;)

Normal  x1 Seekers VRS 0 AC no prot target, using x1 compound bow

Cephas Keken Maug Fighter shot Booni [29955]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter hit Booni [26207]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter shot Booni [29241]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter shot Booni [23409]

After Merging with my named seekers

Cephas Keken Maug Fighter hit Booni [132110]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter shot Booni [112157]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter hit Booni [131413]
Cephas Keken Maug Fighter hit Booni [135066]

So that preety much says that naming ammo does likely make it x150 ammo.

So a char starting with a base named ELB and named ammo has a damage potential worlds above a char with an unnamed set.

Can you try merge the seekers with another bundle and see how much it costs for the second option?

You should notify Jonathan of this, it is atm an exploit, and we don't do exploits.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 23 2006 4:00 PM EDT

there is a known ammo bug concerning merging, it's like that even merging with another x1 +1 bundle I'd still have an option that would cost money.

I don't think it qualifies as an exploit Shade, it's just a side effect of the changes, It does encourage naming, which from my point of view is a good thing.
