    The posts always say whether or not you get the item from purchasing credits. If it doesn't so much as mention it, then you don't get them from purchases.

    I wanted to complete an invasion piece or two, but 50 globes later all I have is 2 bain maal figurines, a tradeskill slot and half a cauldron, the odds were not good to me. So I spent the rest of my allotment on credits and bought a bow string and armour instead.

    thanks for the clarification

    Curious how that works.  If I have 5 trade skills, all the trait reset I need, etc..  foes that mean Im almost guaranteed to get caches?

      (Purely rhetorical, I have to move houses, buy a $40,000 bracelet for my wife, and 2 new vehicles to purchase before I buy credits).

    Do you know how many globes a $40,000 bracelet would buy?

    Someone needs to look at their planned spending and reassess.

    Do playful budgies eat anything? Do they have any reacts other than pet?

    Also, when placing tulip pots, do you need to do it as furniture, or just drop and flame? Also, do they react at all to things like watering etc?

    Is 2h (Infernal) hunting still considered superior among the four weaponmastery specializations?

    Dual blunt doesn't seem bad, and I feel it was decently useful in group combat, but I'd definitely switch if it's faster/worth the change. A brief forum search had some comments from 2017/2018, but I'm not sure if any substantial changes have come since then.

    The plant pots are supposed to be tied to the owner, so once you drop it, only you are supposed to be able to pick it up. You can test with a friend. To my memory they don't react to things but they have room messages. A number of the seemingly innocuous flowers have an ...odd... room message.

    Not in that order, silly. [Edit: no need to share the details of the rest].

    Yeah didn't think so and just reaffirms my point that I would rather spend it on tangible things and time/vacations with my family in real life.

    2H is the best for Knight hunting if you can afford an artie sword, especially once you start critting heavily and turn things into mist with a x8 crit. If artie weapons aren't in your future, DWC/2H/DWB are all very close to each other and SNB is way behind.

    edit: I don't remember forged bastard numbers, but L2 with focus speed is about 3 seconds, L3 with focus speed is right around 2.8 seconds.

    Because I am not sure, is the Events news board in Achaea considered IG knowledge that can be disseminated?

    The events news is entirely IC, so that's fine.

    Yep, it is IC!

    The wiki is also considered IC.

    I don't know if thats the best way to phrase it, directly referencing the wiki IC is definitely a no no, but the knowledge on it is pretty free to use IC as if it came from some sort of public library of history.
  • CooperCooper IowaMember Posts: 5,120 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Right. You can't say "this was on the wiki", obviously, but you can use it as if your character knows it. 

    Really handy for me since I don't have perfect recall. I get asked almost daily something like "hey you're old, remember this <insert super specific question from an event that happened 13 years ago>?"

    I'd die without the wiki.

    I find it a bit weird that we somehow ICly have the Tsol'teth's private notes though... That doesn't make sense.

    I just imagine that the reports are being intercepted by some Delosian spy or something and posted publicly.

    But also, the Tsol'teth pretty much shout everything that crosses their mind. They're probably just posting their secret missives publicly because they love sharing, or maybe they don't understand the boards are public! 

    Maybe when they shout and various Achaeans respond to them, they're thinking "Tezlari-tarin interception of communications remains unexplained. Further investigation is needed," and scratching their heads.
    Thanks, that's a good answer.

    Also, I now have a headcanon that somewhere there is an old denizen scholar, probably in the Lucretian Athenium (sp) who makes/acquires the Events news posts. Also, she's a passionate historian, so she doesn't share anything without verifying the facts.

    To do this, she has an expert spy network, and/or mystical abilities/artefacts like the Universal Membrane. And of course, some of the more gloating types send her their notes directly, but she still verifies them before posting.

    Does anybody know what this is: A sharp, refreshing scent comes to you on the breeze.

    I see it a lot now. I don't know if it's ambience, or maybe it's connected to some vines, but it's oddly soothing to see after losing the city. Bit like a part of Cyrene always follows you. I'm a sap that way.  :)

    It is reclamation refresh, which is a healing tick for anyone who stands in the vines - doesn't respect enemies or allies or anything. The vine owner is probably doing that for the sake of Tide hunters.

    Anyone know what the new Arash denizen damage penalty is, now that it's been reduced?
  • PalusaPalusa Member Posts: 75 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I'd love some mathchaea here too, my anecdotal experience says "enough that the bashing plans don't change"
  • PyoriPyori Member Posts: 1,675 @ - Epic Achaean

    I tested it a lot, and Palusa is pretty on point. You're still not going to really be using Arash unless you can mow through the area. Even places like Moghedu are rough, I managed it with my death cape fully stacked (around ~9.9k hp) but I feel like Mir is generally better for bashing places like that. Sanya is fine as well, for the most part (barring rooms with 2 keepers or a Temelin for example). Damage per hit isn't that much higher in Sanya, but the balance is noticeable.
    For reference:
    Double knight hit in Mir:

    Versus double knight hit in Arash:

    Yes this is with armour/toughness etc. Keep in mind all stances that aren't Arash have some innate damage reduction now, albeit not as much as Mir.
