MM hitting front minion. (in General)

BootyGod April 17 2007 4:33 PM EDT

It's hitting front minion now, and going through AoI. What's up?

BootyGod April 17 2007 4:37 PM EDT

And does AoI bite now?

Adminedyit [Superheros] April 17 2007 4:37 PM EDT

DD was never effected by the AoI.

QBsutekh137 April 17 2007 4:37 PM EDT

MM will always "go through AoI"... AoIs only work on physical attacks. Can you tell us which character you are fighting, and maybe post a fight log snippet?

Adminedyit [Superheros] April 17 2007 4:40 PM EDT

anyone with MM that i fight. their MM hits in the front

BootyGod April 17 2007 4:40 PM EDT

Using Character Oduten against Character Susan Death

Round 1

Susan's Magic Missile hit Satanism [371947]

hmm.. This might require a strat rework. MM is indeed targetting from the front now.

horseguy001 April 17 2007 4:44 PM EDT

heh yeah I was wondering the same thing. Keep on losing certain fights and I couldn't figure out why.

BootyGod April 17 2007 4:45 PM EDT

PLease, I beg you all lol, why does the AoI matter at all now, outside of familiars. Also, what is to stop you from just putting damage dealer in -back-?

Adminedyit [Superheros] April 17 2007 4:46 PM EDT

i think this may be a glitch...

BootyGod April 17 2007 4:47 PM EDT

Same here. It doesn't change strategy at all. But how would changing ammo X cap affect MM targeting style lol?

AdminNightStrike April 17 2007 4:48 PM EDT

Glitch or not, my fight order is now changed to accommodate.

horseguy001 April 17 2007 4:49 PM EDT

Actually this makes MM a better spell IMO

Look at smalls NCB...I put my evasion minion in the front and moved my tank to the back, but the MM kills my Evasion minion before ranged is over. Then BAM :D explosive shots do the rest of the dirty work.

Adminedyit [Superheros] April 17 2007 4:53 PM EDT

same here NS just saying it maybe a glitch as MM was changed to hit in the back why change it back?

AdminNightStrike April 17 2007 4:54 PM EDT

Because it's too easy to have a wall that does both jobs -- DD and Physical. My setup before the glitch was: Monk, PL E, Wall. Now it's Wall, PL E, Monk. This means that physical attacks go straight to the wall at full force, with no Evasion in play until the end.

horseguy001 April 17 2007 4:58 PM EDT

Actually with a bit of tweaking this really changes nothing, since you can slap an AoI on the Mage Wall and have arrows fly right by it anyways.

QBsutekh137 April 17 2007 5:04 PM EDT

I would say it changes stuff... I can beat Oxcha now. We'll see how he changes his stance in response.

AdminNightStrike April 17 2007 5:12 PM EDT

AoI on a wall results in a good -20 to AC and a big boost to PR.

Mikel April 17 2007 5:14 PM EDT

Front or back it matters not :)

QBsutekh137 April 17 2007 5:50 PM EDT

Mikel is front and back, the beginning and end, alpha and omega... *smile*

QBsutekh137 April 17 2007 5:55 PM EDT

Movement of a PL-sink could help, though. For example, of Oxcha moves his PL minion behind his wall, it would help, or heck, just move wall to front and tank to back. Sorry, took me a while to just think in terms of old-school front-to-back dynamics. *smile*

Tezmac April 17 2007 6:20 PM EDT

Jon making it so seekers attack at the back instead of seeking mages? Just thinkin' why he might have changed fight dynamics...

BootyGod April 17 2007 6:23 PM EDT

Nope, seekers still own me mage.

AdminJonathan April 17 2007 6:27 PM EDT


DiabloSpawn April 17 2007 6:39 PM EDT

amazing how quickly we all 'evolve' to face any changes Jon could throw at us, we should be proud of ourselves :D

BootyGod April 17 2007 6:45 PM EDT

Thanks. I KNEW you wouldn't waste those AoIs like that.

QBOddBird April 17 2007 11:07 PM EDT

Hm. Well, Jonathan, now I'm wondering what you were doing that caused the MM to start hitting front-to-back. ~_^

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 18 2007 4:22 AM EDT

Please be a new front hitting DD! :D
