Sorry guys, no dragonscale mail this time around. :)

Yes, it works for mages too.

TheHatchetman January 11 2007 12:57 AM EST

Whoa!!!!! I love you man!!!

Shooto January 11 2007 1:00 AM EST

I gotta switch to a MM mage now.

TheHatchetman January 11 2007 1:01 AM EST

upon further consideration, isn't this pushing CoC further into the cold?

Tezmac January 11 2007 1:01 AM EST

For CoC as well or just weapons/spells that normally attack in ranged?

horseguy001 [Battle Royale] January 11 2007 1:13 AM EST

haha I am so toast against mages now...just when I was starting to gain ground on the Single FB ones :D Though Junction + HoC + Hal = Pretty decent damage I would guess.

Can I still buy one of these for $6 even though I picked up an AoF for 6$?

Me likee

Zest hit Joscelin Verreiul [494867]
Zest shot Joscelin Verreiul [450474]
Zest skewered Joscelin Verreiul [577492]
Zest struck deep into Joscelin Verreiul [361710]
Zest skewered Joscelin Verreiul [515731]

That is round one of ranged =)

Just a note, if you're paying for multiple HoCs, I'd appreciate it if you batch them into fewer paypal payments... Paypal takes quite a chunk out of $6 but it goes down, percentage-wise, for larger payments.

AdminJonathan January 11 2007 1:37 AM EST

I'm going to bed now. I'll take care of more HoCs and EHs in the morning.

TheHatchetman January 11 2007 1:40 AM EST

Horseguy, don't forget to toss some BG/DB into the mix...

Fanta [Fanta's Forge] January 11 2007 2:03 AM EST

Does this take off -5 UC, like almost every other helmet?

AdminJonathan January 11 2007 2:20 AM EST

no penalty to UC

(really, going to bed soon)

miteke [Superheros] January 11 2007 11:25 AM EST

So what do the +s do?

AdminJonathan January 11 2007 11:32 AM EST

just AC

It seems despite the actual damage inflicted, during the 2 Round 1's with the HoC damage from AMF is the same:

The Conquerer cast Antimagic Field on Blaze (0.29)

Fight #1:
Blaze takes damage from his own Fireball (1140)!
Blaze's Fireball hit The Conquerer [5602]
Blaze takes damage from his own Fireball (1140)!
Blaze's Fireball hit The Conquerer [4383]

--

Fight #2
Blaze takes damage from his own Fireball (1140)!
Blaze's Fireball hit The Conquerer [4917]
Blaze takes damage from his own Fireball (1140)!

Fight #3

amf damage is calculated straight from the DD level before the random factor and damage reduction.

kevinLeong January 11 2007 3:58 PM EST

Right, I'm sorry, I guess what I was trying to say is that the HoC creates an almost duplicate first round. AMF backlash changes in Rounds 2 & 3 but for the two Round 1's it is exactly the same. The random factor is not recalculated.

Or at least I think thats what I'm trying to say.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] January 11 2007 4:04 PM EST

there is no random factor in the amf backlash, it changes from round 1, 2 and 3 because there is a penalty on dd in rounds 1 and 2

kevinLeong January 11 2007 4:07 PM EST

NVM yes, I am an idiot. My bad, I don't know what I was thinking.

QBOddBird January 12 2007 12:41 AM EST

Double Cast. A skill trained to 10% of the DD in order to cast twice per round, with each casting at 50% of the spell's power.

This would be useful against teams with PL and cases where a minion has very few HP left and you don't want to waste 300k damage killing a minion with 40 HP left. You exchange AMF resistance and some damage for increased damage efficiency.

I love this, it is exactly what I was hoping for mages to get in skill form, but this is better - no penalties that I can see, and as an item! Amazing, Jon! =)
