Did Junc+Hal and does Junc+HG work? (in General)

QBOddBird April 9 2008 3:56 PM EDT

Back when I tried to use Junction + Hal on my tourney character, if you didn't have Junction at 1.00, it REDUCED the ST/DX of the Hal to its effect. I.E. .80 effect = 80% of its normal ST/DX.

Has this been fixed?

Also, do HGs give their UC bonus with Junction, or is TG better?

Thanks if anyone knows, and thanks to Jon if they are still broken and he fixes them.

Tested Hal just now. Same bug still there.

What happens if you don't even train junction on the Hal?

Ulord[NK] April 9 2008 5:02 PM EDT

Then it's no problem. Hal will not get the benefit of any of the equipment.

We never got notification about the JKF, I expect the plus on the HG add nothiing to the UC ability of it at this point.

Oh well, that sucks.

So Jon, if you see this thread, it would be really cool if you fixed those bugs <3

I could see how the Hal may be intentional... Granted, that'd be lame, but at least plausible. A penalty for being a half-ootied junctioner... You may ask yourself "Why don't the other familiars have this penalty?", but then you'd be crazy... It's one thing to talk to yourself, but asking for the answer to a question you don't know is just nuts... You may ask me this same question, in response, I'd ask if you've asked yourself the question, then I'd ask "Why don't other familiars attack physically in ranged?" Not really sure... But perhaps this entertained you... If so, you are entirely too easy to amuse.

HGs not upping UC via Junction though... seems a bit off. I mean... Why shouldn't the gloves I wear that increase the fighting ability that I don't have also increase the fighting ability of my stained flesh that has somehow formed into a dude that starts kicking the crap out of other dudes...

Lostling, you truly must tell me your in-the-know source. I'm terribly curious.

Anywho, Jon, could you please fix this bug? Assuming it's not a* feature?

lostling April 9 2008 9:17 PM EDT

i reported it a long time ago wheni was running 4 E 1 hal strat lol... i think the response i got was taht it was a feature

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 9 2008 9:20 PM EDT

I think you misread a joke in chat lostling...

No feature about it... I'll look for Jon's comments on the original thread later on while I compile all the threads I made about the JKF.
