How Much Damage??? (in Contests)
September 19 2006 10:55 PM EDT
Send your fees to Safety Deposit Box, 5k a guess.
I'm gonna get between 1-5 Slayer Arrows (hopefully down to 1, but whatever can be done) which are currently being whittled down to that number by Draco.
When I get it, it'll be boosted to 100k NW, almost all of it on the X.
These arrows will then be given to SNK3R, who will retrain to get back that 10.5M STR.
He'll try and get ahold of the biggest ELBow he can find, and fire off these arrows and record the damage done.
Here's the contest: Guess how much damage is going to be done on the biggest hit. All the fees go to the pot, whoever has the closest guess wins the whole thing.
Ready, set, Go!
I am guessing (and probably will be wrong) ...
15 800 000!
The only real variable is how much 100k is going to get you...but I'm going to say 25,000,000
DrAcO5676 (Elros) 126.96.36.199 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $80535 11:16 PM EDT for the pot......
Considering I hit with 14 million with +12 BG's, 1.1 million str, x809 on the bow and a 54k nw x2000 seeker arrow I would guess prolly about 76 million
-1,435,723,018...someone has to break the ELB again ;)
(I_dont_care) 188.8.131.52 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 -- 420,000 damage 12:56 AM EDT
September 20 2006 3:06 AM EDT
will he be using BG? if not i'm going to guess 250,000,000. if he is, will i be able to get another guess? because just +10 BG can give you 30% more damage which will GREATLY alter the damage outcome.
Flamey (Flâmêy) 184.108.40.206 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 3:05 AM EDT
(I_dont_care) 220.127.116.11 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 -- I meant 420,000,000 4:03 PM EDT
Here's another 5k for good measure, though I have quite the span going...
September 20 2006 6:24 PM EDT
A Seeker Arrow [11x16300] (+125)
An Elven Long Bow [6x311] (+49)
Hits for 30,329,326 damage against a 0 AC minion (Thanks t(^_^t)!)
Anyone want to place another bet?
September 20 2006 7:23 PM EDT
Ah, i forgot to include +8 bgs... makes a rather large difference...
September 20 2006 8:21 PM EDT
My guess is he'd be using BG's in order to get the most damage possible.
The ARROW is currently at: A Slayer Arrow [15x22000] (+100) NW: 112,344
When I try to merge....
1,338 Slayer Arrows [15x22000] (+100)
September 20 2006 11:09 PM EDT
A Slayer Arrow [15x25000] (+100) NW:130,073
Will be fired tomorrow sometime. Make sure to get your bids in before then!
Thanks for their contributions to this contest go to: SNK3R, Swagger, DrAcO5676, Caedmon, and *crosses fingers* hopefully Freed. Again, thanks a ton, you guys! You're all fantastic!

Lent my Elbow for 12 hours - come and hit me guys - I am undefended :)
September 21 2006 2:43 AM EDT
/me hopes that SNK and OB don't crash the server again with their little schemes :P
September 21 2006 2:55 AM EDT
it be funny if it missed lol
September 21 2006 4:29 AM EDT
yes, you should get sut or someone that is single minion to retrain everything in health so we are guaranteed a hit
September 21 2006 5:32 AM EDT
Miss....haha....There's 176 PTH on the bow, PTH on the ToA (probably 80-ish?), and 300 PTH on the arrow. If anyone in this game can dodge 556 PTH, I'll agree entirely that Evasion is smurftacularly overpowered.
September 21 2006 9:55 AM EDT
My moneys on 29million.
My Guess is 50 Million. :)
Psywolf (Top Vote Getter) 18.104.22.168 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 -- 999,999,999 10:36 AM EDT
I guessing thats the most damage can someone can hit. So I guessing that.
September 21 2006 10:41 AM EDT
Pot's at 185k now with around 2 hours until the firing of the Arrow. Better get your bets in now while you can!
September 21 2006 10:47 AM EDT
Johnnywas (The Clash) 22.214.171.124 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 -- damage pot 10:44 AM EDT
I'm going to reckon 129,000,000.
But you know it's either going to make us all go O.O or look very disappointed, wandering off saying, 'was that it?'
September 21 2006 10:58 AM EDT
OK, so it'll be more like an hour 'till its fired. Anyways, it won't be long, that's the point. So there.
And yeah, JW, you're right - but I think everyone'll Oh. =D
September 21 2006 11:04 AM EDT
My guess is that the damage will be so huge that it will cause a critical mass overload, and the damaged character will auto-reset, and we'll never actually know :P
Then there'll be huge controversy over the damaged character's owning player's desire to have his reset character restored, and then...
Aw, I'm just kidding - I say 333,333,333...
BarzooMonkey (She-Wolves) 126.96.36.199 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $50000 -- Damage=Reset :P 10:59 AM EDT

TrueDevil (Kurosagi) 188.8.131.52 BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 11:31 AM EDT
I'm going to guess 984,714,013 damage. :)
September 21 2006 11:34 AM EDT
oops, it looks like it's already been fired.
Most Powerful Blow: 1,390,851,510
September 21 2006 11:41 AM EDT
If that's the case then I should have put another 1 in front of my guess.
Looks like Psywolf is nearest.....
September 21 2006 11:43 AM EDT
BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) 184.108.40.206 Psywolf (Top Vote Getter) $254439 -- You win! 11:41 AM EDT
Congrats....amazing, with all these digits, EVERYONE underestimated...
September 21 2006 11:44 AM EDT
That's some damage. Makes the fact that I've just managed to get over 400k per strike pretty puny!
September 21 2006 11:47 AM EDT
Here's what the fight-log looked like:
September 21 2006 11:48 AM EDT
That's not a bow's damage, that's an Abrams Tank armed with spent uranium shells! I got my other Changemonth wish!!!
September 21 2006 12:52 PM EDT
And for those that are curious what my stats/equipment were while shooting the arrow, they were:
September 21 2006 1:26 PM EDT
September 21 2006 1:31 PM EDT
All that damage, and you still lost! :P
1.3 Billion! O_O
What does a base arrow do for damage with that set up?
September 21 2006 3:38 PM EDT
since every X is 1%, this would be 21999% more damage? :p
September 21 2006 4:21 PM EDT
strange, I can't see the images anymore...
September 21 2006 4:45 PM EDT
GL: when he was testing, Normal arrows did 5-6M damage, Seekers did 6-8M damage, Slayers did 8M+ (these are all at x0+1)
September 21 2006 5:54 PM EDT
(these are all at x0+1)
Didn't think the server would let us top 999 million. Sweet...
