Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:23 PM EDT

Nice!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:24 PM EDT

Um, but uh, what does this have to do with the tats?

Little Anthony March 14 2009 8:24 PM EDT

more magic is nice

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:24 PM EDT

+8 +5? you mean %?

AdminTal Destra [Forge Of Norn] March 14 2009 8:24 PM EDT

ENCHANTER ARMOR FTW!!!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:24 PM EDT

Hmm. +5% per plus?

Flamey March 14 2009 8:27 PM EDT

Flat +8% and +5%?

AdminJonathan March 14 2009 8:28 PM EDT

yes, flat.

QBRanger March 14 2009 8:30 PM EDT

Nice armor for enchanters, boost to magic AND skills.

Same for mages if one can ever get a mage skill.

Made the McM useless though.

Soul Eater March 14 2009 8:30 PM EDT

Does naming it increase anything on the BoE?

Flamey March 14 2009 8:31 PM EDT

Does + to DX automatically mean + to skills?

hzarb March 14 2009 8:34 PM EDT

Agree with Ranger.. McM is now a piece of junk..

QBRanger March 14 2009 8:34 PM EDT

All things that increase/decrease dexterity effects skills.

Colonel Custard [SeeD] March 14 2009 8:56 PM EDT

MCM gives much better AC, though. Assuming its upgrade curve is as nice as I remember it, and that the BoE's is proportionally less.

QBRanger March 14 2009 8:57 PM EDT

5% more magic on an enchanter is worth far more IMO then 20 or so AC

Flamey March 14 2009 8:58 PM EDT

I should invest in a few. So does it cost like 5 mil to get a supporter item these days?

TheCakeIsTheTruth March 14 2009 8:59 PM EDT

Man, I just sold my BoE. Now I'm gonna guess it'll be worth like twice as much.

AdminNightStrike March 14 2009 9:07 PM EDT

Buy high, sell low :)

QBRanger March 14 2009 9:08 PM EDT

Sell low, watch it get buffed big time, get hosed.

Lord Bob March 14 2009 9:11 PM EDT

Wow, very nice.

Rawr March 14 2009 9:12 PM EDT

So what do we do with our old MCMs?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 14 2009 9:13 PM EDT

I'm sad I didn't pick up the BoEs for cheap in the AH, I knew they would be changed based on how useless they were. /facepalm

Lord Bob March 14 2009 9:13 PM EDT

Sell them like I did when the EH came out.

three4thsforsaken March 14 2009 9:40 PM EDT

I don't know how I feel about the MC right now. Could use AP...*hint* *hint*

btw, what was the base AC of MC before?

Lord Bob March 14 2009 9:42 PM EDT

32 I think.

Lord Bob March 14 2009 9:43 PM EDT

By the way, since we're on the issue, can the EH decay a bit less than 50% per round? Now that we have five rounds of ranged, a lower decay rate seems reasonable.

Guardian March 14 2009 10:42 PM EDT

boe, mc , eh.

may someone please explain me them by extense?

AdminShade March 14 2009 10:46 PM EDT

BoE & MC

AdminJonathan March 15 2009 12:44 AM EDT

> can the EH decay a bit less than 50% per round?

Done. Now 30%.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 15 2009 12:46 AM EDT

SWEET

Goodfish March 15 2009 12:51 AM EDT

I am pumped I just bought an EH.

QBsutekh137 March 15 2009 12:58 AM EDT

Nice, LB. Good call. Oh, and thanks, Jonathan. *smile*

three4thsforsaken March 15 2009 1:42 AM EDT

Now it'll almost do things during ranged rounds! Cause tons of people use ranged DDs.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 15 2009 1:42 AM EDT

this is awesome i just got a BoE out of my supportership :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 15 2009 1:45 AM EDT

someone is reporting massive skill bonuses after equipping the BoE

Fatil1ty March 15 2009 1:46 AM EDT

gosh darndit nov, why did you have to wreck my fun...

it's true..after equipping the BOE my Phantom link jumped from 150k to 475k level and approx 260k to 890k effect.

I checked it in battle too and it is indeed the case.

kevlar March 15 2009 1:47 AM EDT

Is it evasion? The DX bonus increasing it?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 15 2009 1:55 AM EDT

"it's true..after equipping the BOE my Phantom link jumped from 150k to 475k level and approx 260k to 890k effect."

Yup it's probably evasion Kevlar, lol.

Optimus(Prime) [The Knighthood] March 15 2009 2:21 AM EDT

its says i got 9mill for my ROE does that mean my tatto is level 1 again? cuss i dont see the update button and i didnt get any money either

QBOddBird March 15 2009 2:26 AM EDT

See this thread, bubbletea.

kevlar March 15 2009 2:35 AM EDT

Hey Odd, how do you see links within the CB site? Whenever I open up a page or go somewhere it maintains the same url. Is it an option I need to switch?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 15 2009 7:24 AM EDT

Open in a new window. ;)

Talion March 15 2009 8:02 AM EDT

I don't understand the change to BoE? It was reducing armor penalties so it was mainly an enchanter item and now it grants less AC, more DX and more magic? Wouldn't it have made more sense if it boosted enchantments instead and kept a higher AC?

Oh well.. I don't really mind either way.

For the record, I was one of the very, very, very few that liked the BoE the way it was.

BarCap March 15 2009 10:39 AM EDT

What was the original AC of the EH?

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 15 2009 1:36 PM EDT

So "magic" means DD + Enchantments, in reference to the BoE?

QBOddBird March 15 2009 1:39 PM EDT

I imagine that information can be found by looking through past Wiki edits, SK.

Lord Bob March 16 2009 6:00 PM EDT

"Done. Now 30%."

Wow, I got a change made!

Colonel Custard [SeeD] March 16 2009 10:08 PM EDT

"it's true..after equipping the BOE my Phantom link jumped from 150k to 475k level and approx 260k to 890k effect."

150k * .08 = 475k?

I think it's granting more than 8% to skills, if that's true.

TheHatchetman March 16 2009 10:14 PM EDT

"150k * .08 = 475k?"

no no no...

150k * .08 = 12k

150k * 1.08 =475k :P

Flamey March 16 2009 10:29 PM EDT

What was the original AC of the EH?
22.

So "magic" means DD + Enchantments, in reference to the BoE
Yes. Anything you cast.

chaosal March 16 2009 11:02 PM EDT

erm hatch actually 150k * 3.167 = 475k

chaosal March 16 2009 11:02 PM EDT

lol :P

QBsutekh137 March 16 2009 11:13 PM EDT

My PL seems awful damn big, hadn't noticed till this thread... I just got a BoE...

QBsutekh137 March 16 2009 11:18 PM EDT

It is getting 8%...per + _and_ base. I just did the math, I have a +30 BoE, so 48 total AC on my BoE, times 8% = 384%. My PL level is around 292K, and it goes up to 1.121 million -- exactly as the math would say.

Jonathan, you are multiplying the 8% by total AC (including base). Pretty sure you mean it to be flat effect, no?

Soul Eater March 16 2009 11:23 PM EDT

Shhhh this is a good thing. lol

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 16 2009 11:43 PM EDT

added it to the known issues section of the wiki as a bug.

Flamey March 16 2009 11:46 PM EDT

Nice spot sut.

Fatil1ty March 17 2009 12:21 AM EDT

spotted a couple days ago. same exact thing

Lord Bob March 17 2009 12:31 AM EDT

Hmmm, is this glitch happening with Enchantment spells as well as skills? +~400% to an enchantment or two would really improve the crap out of my rewards for the next few days!

(*psst...* not that I would cheat. Consider this a bump until the issue gets fixed.)

QBsutekh137 March 17 2009 7:25 AM EDT

DM does not appear to be getting enhanced for me, and the DD enhancement is also not out of control. Just appears to be skills (at least as far as I can see...)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 17 2009 11:11 AM EDT

Someone please try it on UC! ;)

rrowland April 9 2009 1:05 PM EDT

This seems to be giving me a stacking bonus to my dex per enchantment point.

+7 = 31/20
+14 = 42/20
+21 = 53/20

rrowland April 9 2009 1:08 PM EDT

I just put 5,000 exp into dex to test (It's a mage minion):

1,168 / 436

Looks to me like it scales. This seems like a pretty big bug if you can triple / quadruple / etc your dex just by wearing a BoE.

rrowland April 9 2009 1:14 PM EDT

100% (base)
+8% per enchant
21 x 8 = 168
168% + 100% = 268%

1168 / 436 = 2.68 = 268%

Looks like it adds 8% PER enchantment rather than 8% base.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 9 2009 1:38 PM EDT

posted to known issues on march 16, no fix yet.

rrowland April 9 2009 2:20 PM EDT

Sounds like a pretty big bug to me... But what do I know I guess.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 9 2009 2:22 PM EDT

regardless of what you have heard in the past, size does not matter! ; )

Wizard'sFirstRule April 9 2009 6:54 PM EDT

looks like it is Jon's intention to give 8% bonus per enchantment, maybe I should grab one for my team now. </sarcasm>
