VB part 2 (in Changelog)


AdminJonathan March 12 2007 4:02 PM EDT

Increased VB base to 63. This brings the AC level for "VB better than ELS" to 246.

(Before March, this AC level was 110.)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 12 2007 4:03 PM EDT

Thanks Jon, sounds a little more 'balanced' now :)

miteke [Superheros] March 12 2007 4:03 PM EDT

That ought to help some.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 12 2007 4:06 PM EDT

Just fought some battles and my average damage is back to around 30k which is 5-10k lower than previous, seems like a perfect reduction level.

horseguy001 [Battle Royale] March 12 2007 4:06 PM EDT

Quite a bit actually, went from being a paperweight to something that can be used, albeit not as good as some other choices out there.

Drakon(DS) [Guardian Bros Inc] March 12 2007 4:07 PM EDT

nice

[T]Vestax March 12 2007 4:08 PM EDT

246 is about an above average AC Wall. But fine that's fine by me. Its just a supporter item.

The Grid grazed Ever I with Jagged Popsicle Stick [69444]

Did we lose the vorpalness of the VB?

QBRanger March 12 2007 4:21 PM EDT

Another set of hits vs Freed's 420 AC minion without a TOE.

With 50% vorpalness I should do more.

AdminJonathan March 12 2007 4:22 PM EDT

fixed

Thanks Jon.

Well done making the base a bit higher.

Yukk March 12 2007 4:24 PM EDT

Thanks Jon. I think this is much better.
It may not be "the best" now but it's definitely an option again.
Now it's a strategic choice.

krasko March 12 2007 4:27 PM EDT

Is it the vorpalness 50% or back to 40%?And is it really a nerf that way?Giving 10% vorpalness and removing a few of base X ?

QBRanger March 12 2007 4:27 PM EDT

4 / 4 / 324,533 vs a TOE mage-Queen Beee

About the same as the MH of the equal x.

Very nice jump in damage, not too much to make it the only option but enough to keep it in play.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 12 2007 4:37 PM EDT

Nice, not the uber nerf anymore.

AdminShade March 12 2007 4:58 PM EDT

Better :)

TheHatchetman March 12 2007 4:58 PM EDT

a few more rescales, and everyone's VB will be base :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 12 2007 7:14 PM EDT

:D

Tyriel [123456789] March 12 2007 7:34 PM EDT

Yay, thanks Jon. That helps a lot. =)

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] March 13 2007 7:59 PM EDT

You know what is another happy surprise regarding this change? The challenge rating of all my opponents has gone up, even though I can still defeat them rather easily. Thanks! :)

noneedforthese March 14 2007 7:16 AM EDT

A great nerf... if that makes sense :)

AdminNightStrike March 29 2007 3:40 PM EDT

Where's the AC cut off difference versus a BONE?

AdminNightStrike March 29 2007 10:56 PM EDT

According to the other thread, the cut off values before the subsequent buff, were:

"with 50% reduction those are 352 and 328 for BNE and ELS."

So the ELS cut off comparison went from 328 to 246. Anyone know how to calculate what the bone is? I can at least guess that it's less than 352 and more than 246.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 30 2007 5:22 AM EDT

I'd say 264 Nightstrike but obviously I woouldn't bet my life on it.

ELS has been lowered to 75% of the previous figure and 352*0.75=264 :)
