Resetting MPB. (in General)


QBRanger January 15 2007 1:00 PM EST

Would it be such a bad idea for us to be able to reset our own MPB if we wanted, lets say once every 30 days?

The reason I ask is that with the free retraining, my MPB is a lot different then what is noted on my character. Being able to reset it would let me get a better idea of what level GA and/or VA I would need.

It would also let me get a better idea of if x weapon is better then y weapon.

Just a though, any critiques welcome, please keep them civil though.

Good idea.I like it!

Yeah, this suggestion is great! ;)

This is a very good idea. In fact, I'd probably use it. Useful when changing weapons, especially when using rented weapons and then switching back to something weaker. Isn't GA to be compared to the damage RECEIVED, though?

Also, to be able to see the average power of the blows you receive could be useful...Would be biased if you usually get nailed by people with a huge difference in MPR/PR, but, you know, just a thought.

I would like this very much indeed, as it would allow me to gauge what my CURRENT stats are, not just my best stats ever :)

while on this topic, could we get a MDI (magic damage indicator) its a MBP for mages(FB,CoC,MM) ^_^

I thought your maximum possible hit with magic was calculable...

Why not alternatively have the MPB be reset just after free retraining stops?

TheHatchetman January 15 2007 2:58 PM EST

no! I like having a higher MPB than Failure...

Why reset it on everybody? How about we just get a small link added to reset it ourselves? Wouldn't be hard to add in, and would allow us to reset MPB if we ever feel our strat was changed enough to want to reset it.

I like the Average Blow Indicator idea, and have a reset on that. The MPB I would like to keep just cause mine is higher than I can get usually. :) (since I trained extra ST and x30 arrows to do it.)

That is what he is asking for, did you read the post properly?

This is a nice idea if easily coded.

I also like the average damage indicator as well. However, I think that it can have so many different options with it that it should be discussed in its own thread and will probably require some sort of donation to Jon to get implemented. Some options for average damage, minion, ranged, melee, battle, DD, Enchants, 160, lifetime, year, month, week, day, reset. Then again, a lifetime average damage that can be reset would be just fine too.
