MM hitting front minion. (in General)
April 17 2007 4:33 PM EDT
It's hitting front minion now, and going through AoI. What's up?
April 17 2007 4:37 PM EDT
And does AoI bite now?
DD was never effected by the AoI.

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

Using Character Oduten against Character Susan Death
Susan's Magic Missile hit Satanism 
hmm.. This might require a strat rework. MM is indeed targetting from the front now.

heh yeah I was wondering the same thing. Keep on losing certain fights and I couldn't figure out why.
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-?
i think this may be a glitch...
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?
Glitch or not, my fight order is now changed to accommodate.

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

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.

I would say it changes stuff... I can beat Oxcha now. We'll see how he changes his stance in response.
AoI on a wall results in a good -20 to AC and a big boost to PR.

Front or back it matters not :)
April 17 2007 5:50 PM EDT
Mikel is front and back, the beginning and end, alpha and omega... *smile*
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*

Jon making it so seekers attack at the back instead of seeking mages? Just thinkin' why he might have changed fight dynamics...
April 17 2007 6:23 PM EDT
Nope, seekers still own me mage.
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
April 17 2007 6:45 PM EDT
Thanks. I KNEW you wouldn't waste those AoIs like that.
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. ~_^
Please be a new front hitting DD! :D
