    Let me tell ya, as a Jester if you don't have enough rage for jacks it really gimps your pace.
    Shouldn't you have a hammer tattoo as a jester anyway? It's faster than badjoke (and you can make it even faster with Lethal Ink.)
  • PatroklosPatroklos Member Posts: 213 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    So first, hammer is ungodly slow. To my knowledge, badjoke doesn't work on denizens (it didn't used to anyways). Second, I have a L3 blackjack, meaning by the time I use jacks to strip their shield, I have enough battlerage for a second round IF I need it. I usually don't due to my crit rage. Plus, the tradeoff to lethal ink doesn't justify it as a Jester.

    Plus you don't want to waste rage for the last 1% of mob health either. Carrying rage over to the next mob made a massive difference in how quickly I was clearing areas.

    I quit using BR at 10% health.

    Honestly, I never seem to have any issues with battlerage useage. Though, I like your idea for not using brage once I get to 10% of their health in dragon once this event's over. With the high health of these fog creatures, kind of hard to justify not using dragonbreath for the extra 4% off their health.
  • AtalkezAtalkez Member Posts: 4,842 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Yeah obviously not beneficial when we are doing 1% per attack. For these mobs probably 3-5% is where I would stop.

    GLANCE GROUND while flying.

    GTFO!

    It used to just be GLANCE D.  When that stopped working, i assumed they removed it altogether.

    Goddamn that is awesome.  Thank you.

    edit: Super epic - it returns gmcp info for ground level!

    I tried a few things like glance upwards/sky(wards)/etc but nothing I tried worked.  Then I thought to check the ab vision, which I'm sure I haven't done in 15 years.  Sure enough, it mentions ground, nothing about sky though...

    ab vision glance
    Glance (Vision)                               Known: Yes
    Syntax:            GLANCE/GL/QL
                       GLANCE <direction>
                       GLANCE GROUND
                       GLANCE HARBOUR
    Works on/against:  Room
    Cooldown:          0.50 seconds of equilibrium
    Details:
    A simple ability that is inherent that allows you to see the contents of
    your current room.

    In addition, you may glance in a direction to see the contents of an
    adjacent room, or glance ground if you are flying or in the trees, or
    glance harbour if you are stood on the quarterdeck of a docked ship. It
    should be noted these latter uses incur a minor equilibrium cost.

    There's FLYERS to see who is flying above, but that's about it. That said I can't see what else you'd need to know from glancing into the skies.

    There's also Skywatch and Groundwatch, respectively. Works kind of like Alertness.

    It should, however, help with the Tsol'teth, as they're pretty much players for this event. I've seen that cities have started enemying them.  I wonder if guards will attack them now.

    I have no idea how it escaped my attention that you can duanathar(an) from ships.

    It's either somewhat new or I've been out of the loop for a looooong time. The more you know!

    Learned about CLIST today to show your clothes, and if you have weapon probe learned it will also show which items of clothing have enchantments and what the enchantment is. Really useful for figuring out which rings need enchants again!
    JLIST also works the same way for all jewellery

    I tend to just do INFO WORN, which shows everything worn any if I need to do any repairs/enchants, personally.

    Came across this a little while back, but being on a ship conveys a balance and equilibrium penalty that is negated in full upon attaining trans seafaring.

    I've hated Hobgoblin's ever since Baldurs Gate 1. :(

    I remember my father giving me the 6 disc bundle of BG1+ToTSC when I was in my early teens. Damn hobgoblins!

    "Spare no one!" <-- Who remembers that sound byte from BG1?
