How Much Damage??? (in Contests)

QBOddBird 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!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 19 2006 11:06 PM EDT

I am guessing (and probably will be wrong) ...

15 800 000!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 19 2006 11:14 PM EDT

The only real variable is how much 100k is going to get you...but I'm going to say 25,000,000

DrAcO5676 (Elros) 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) BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 -- 420,000 damage 12:56 AM EDT

Flamey 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) BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $5000 3:05 AM EDT

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] September 20 2006 4:04 PM EDT

(I_dont_care) 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...

Swagger September 20 2006 6:24 PM EDT

A Seeker Arrow [11x16300] (+125)
An Elven Long Bow [6x311] (+49)
ST: 391,855/125,011

Hits for 30,329,326 damage against a 0 AC minion (Thanks t(^_^t)!)
Anyone want to place another bet?

Swagger September 20 2006 7:23 PM EDT

Ah, i forgot to include +8 bgs... makes a rather large difference...

QBOddBird 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)
Cost: $154,053,457

QBOddBird September 20 2006 11:09 PM EDT

The Arrow

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!

Phrede September 21 2006 2:22 AM EDT

Lent my Elbow for 12 hours - come and hit me guys - I am undefended :)

Miandrital September 21 2006 2:43 AM EDT

/me hopes that SNK and OB don't crash the server again with their little schemes :P

Fate September 21 2006 2:55 AM EDT

it be funny if it missed lol

Dudster4 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

QBOddBird 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.

AvoidCXT September 21 2006 9:55 AM EDT

My moneys on 29million.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 21 2006 10:35 AM EDT

5K sent!

My Guess is 50 Million. :)

Psywolf (Top Vote Getter) 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.


QBOddBird 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!

QBJohnnywas September 21 2006 10:47 AM EDT

Johnnywas (The Clash) 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?'

QBOddBird 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

QBBarzooMonkey 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) BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) $50000 -- Damage=Reset :P 10:59 AM EDT

BootyGod September 21 2006 11:08 AM EDT

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] September 21 2006 11:28 AM EDT

TrueDevil [AAA] September 21 2006 11:34 AM EDT

oops, it looks like it's already been fired.

Most Powerful Blow: 1,390,851,510

QBJohnnywas 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.....

QBOddBird September 21 2006 11:43 AM EDT

BBQ (Safety Deposit Box) Psywolf (Top Vote Getter) $254439 -- You win! 11:41 AM EDT

Congrats....amazing, with all these digits, EVERYONE underestimated...

QBJohnnywas 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!

SNK3R September 21 2006 11:47 AM EDT

Here's what the fight-log looked like:

QBBarzooMonkey 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!!!


SNK3R September 21 2006 12:52 PM EDT

And for those that are curious what my stats/equipment were while shooting the arrow, they were:

AdminShade September 21 2006 1:26 PM EDT


Maelstrom September 21 2006 1:31 PM EDT

All that damage, and you still lost! :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 21 2006 3:19 PM EDT

1.3 Billion! O_O

What does a base arrow do for damage with that set up?

AdminShade September 21 2006 3:38 PM EDT


since every X is 1%, this would be 21999% more damage? :p

Guestimation: 59000?

AdminShade September 21 2006 4:21 PM EDT

strange, I can't see the images anymore...

QBOddBird 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)

AdminShade September 21 2006 5:54 PM EDT

(these are all at x0+1)


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 21 2006 7:15 PM EDT

Oh my! ;)

BootyGod September 22 2006 7:37 AM EDT

Didn't think the server would let us top 999 million. Sweet...
