#22379 Rags to Riches and Back Again: The Ballad of Blexun

Posted by Blake on September 10, 2012 - 08:15 PM

Gather my clan mates as I tell

the legend that is Blexun, a male

of Puerto Rican heritage, on his father's side,

who's fame and stories spread far and wide.

Although you may not want to, it's in your best interest

to hear this tell and get off of Pinterest.

The ending may make you cry and yell,

but all can learn from this epic tale.


We start our story in 2008.

Blexun has just started playing Runescape!

He's hooked and enthralled. He's having a blast!

But one can become bored of adventuring, alas.


So in the famous year of 2009

something happened that was most divine.

Blexun browsed Zybez, looking for a clan.

A fun, friendly clan fit for our man.

Dragging his mouse down the scroll bar

he stumbled an ad from TRR.


Yes, TRR. A clan most delightful.

A community clan that he thought was cool.

With Tragic and Illini leading the pack,

Blexun figured these guys will have his back.

So he wrote an application, now this is no myth,

with another famous member named Aliath.

After a roaches event with Nuggeh and Christine,

Blexun thought "Wow. This clan is the scene!"


And thus began Blexun's career most bizarre

in the clan known as TRR.

Blexun become known as a friendly man,

making multiple friends throughout the clan.

He became a friend to us all,

and knew the perfect time to share a lawl.

Even in ranks, Blexun didn't mull.

He was Events, Diplomat, and even Council.

On top of all that, he an avid forum user.

Not like all of those rule abusers.


Yes, this was Blexun at his peak.

A Leader rank, many thought he'd seek.

But alas, we all know how Nuggeh kills

when Blexun joined Mindmyskillz.

Mindmyskillz was a channel in IRC

where one can chat with joy and glee.

Nuggeh and Blexun used it for lulz and fun.

Surely, it was worthy to praise upon.

Sadly all good things will be corrupted

And so did happened when Isaiah showed up-ed


Isaiah, a Mexican, who's a bit of a troll

made Blexun laugh. On the floor he did roll!

And thus Blexun became indifferent about others,

regularly making fun of their mothers.

He cut off his friends, like Ozzy and Bgs.

The latter was a douche, but I digress.


Worst of all, Blexun stopped caring about the clan,

focusing more on the good times at hand.

He withered away with all the TRR legends,

a great man with noble intentions.

Blexun played behind the scenes with his lulz

until the creation of Elder Souls.


There he rose to importance again,

giving Skyrim advice, which the site would contain.

He helped David write articles most impressive

(which he'll get back on once school be successive).

Blexun even rejoined TRR, but as a community influence,

way too soon for him to start playing since

his Runescape days are starting to flee,

but he'll still play for the gp.


But probably his biggest achievement was the rank of GLOBAL MODERATOR,

which was changed to the less impressive title EDITOR.

Yes, this is Blexun as we know him well.

Could he fall from this success? No way in hell.


But we know the name of this ballad,

so prepare to make yourself a salad

of woe, tears, lettuce, and cheeseas a tell you the ending that won't appease.

Anarchy, the leader of TRR now

trusted Blexun like a prize winning cow.

Thus he made Blexun, with his sword and his shield

in charge of managing the Battlefield.This power please Blexun, and made him very charitable

even raching Fealty 3 at the clan citadel.

But the worse part of the story is on it's way



So there you have it, from rags to riches.

I hope this story has you in stitches.

Blexun used to be great, alive and well!

Now all that is left is an empty, emotionless shell.


TL;DR Anarchy took my ability to edit and initiate battles and now I'm angry.

#19658 The Different Types of Gamers

Posted by Jake on June 28, 2012 - 09:55 PM

Back in the days when gaming was niche, everyone was grouped into one category. If you played video games, you were a gamer. This situation worked fine for a while, but nowadays, nearly everyone plays video games. I would hardly call even half of these people gamers, and therefore I feel there needs to be some categorization. Here are the different types I’ve come up with...

The Casual Gamer

This person only plays a small handful of games, and he sees gaming as a social experience. Video games play a small role in his life, and he would almost never call himself a “gamer” in public. He usually plays party games on the Wii and cheerful titles that have little difficulty. He (or she) may also play more traditionally “hardcore” games, albeit with an unsusually limited time commitment.

How to Find One

Visit your grandparents house and see if they have a gaming console. The most “hardcore” game my grandpa owns is Endless Ocean. Gaming there sure was a joy.

Posted Image

The Hardcore Gamer

This is the guy you think of when you think “gamer.” He plays many different types of games of many different genres. Gaming plays a very large role in his life, usually as his primary hobby. Gaming is his passion and obsession, and he is proud of it.

Many say being a hardcore gamer relies on skill, but I disagree. I say it relies on passion. Passion leads to sinking time into games. This will usually develop skill, but even if it doesn't, the person is still hardcore.

How to Find One

Go to the abandoned house down the street. You’ll find the door locked. Sneak inside into the basement. You may find that this house is not actually abandoned; there is likely a pale-skinned man with long hair and fingernails sitting in front of a screen with twitching eyes. Welcome to gaming, my friend.

Posted Image

The Genre Gamer

This person only plays one type of genre. He loves the genre so much that he prefers to explore every inch of the library it offers, rather than branch off. He spends most of his time playing video games, and is very knowledgeable about his genre.

How to Find One

Find a way to access the Hardcore Gamer’s friends list. Scroll through until you find one of his (few) friends that looks like the following. One of them is bound to be a Genre Gamer.

Posted Image

The Achievement Gamer

This guy only buys games for the achievements/trophies. He tosses the game to the side soon after. He doesn't care how bad the game is, as long as the achievements are easy. However, if someone goes for achievements but doesn't buy the games based on them, he fits into “hardcore” gamer.

How to Find One

You see that full grown man in GameStop buying Hannah Montana: The Movie, Terminator: Salvation, and Disney Pixar’s UP? Now you know why.

Posted Image

The MMORPG Gamer

This guy spends his days playing an MMORPG like RuneScape or World of Warcraft. This is the only game he plays; after all, he’s paying for a subscription. While having a personality similar to a hardcore or “genre” gamer, he is often considered to be a bit lower on the food chain for not having as much knowledge of the industry. However, he has a lot of knowledge about his particular MMORPG.

How to Find One

Join an MMO, because you will never meet one of these gamers otherwise. They tend to be reclusive with those not of their own kind.

Posted Image

The Wannabe Gamer

This guy only plays one game. This is not because he is paying for a subscription, but because he thinks his game is the best thing since sliced bread. He refuses to acknowledge any other game in the industry, but calls himself a gamer nonetheless. An example being any kid who plays Call of Duty all day. That is the only game he buys every year, yet he calls himself “hardcore.” These guys are often hated by the more hardcore community for being arrogant sheep. He will praise his game no matter how shallow it is.

How to Find One

Try a middle school, high school, or college. These guys are everywhere. They only play Call of Duty and Madden, and maybe some FIFA or Halo. Try suggesting any other game to them. If their first response is “*game* has terrible grafiks and Call o’ Doodie has da best graphics EVAR!!!” you've found your guy.

Posted Image

The App Gamer

People who fit into this category often play games like Farmville and Angry Birds. Some of them consider themselves hardcore, because they wake up in the middle of the night to check their crops. Others wouldn't even call themselves gamers. Regardless, I believe they are all in this category, for the sole reason that they don’t seek more substantial experiences.

How to Find One

Create a Facebook and add some women onto it. They will soon spam your inbox with Farmville requests. Yep, that’s social networking for ya.

Posted Image

The Online Gamer

This gamer’s primary way to play is through online shooters, racing games, action games, or pretty much any game with competitive multiplayer functionality He plays a variety and has a wide palette, but he can’t appreciate the artfulness of the single player experience. He sometimes enters tournaments, but he doesn't count on winning enough to make substantial earnings.

How to Find One

Drive to your nearest golf, skating, or go kart area. It doesn't matter really, it just needs laser tag. Sign up for a laser tag match. If no one stands out, sign up again. Eventually, there will be someone who dominates, whether through sniping, ganking, or just run n’ gunning. There’s your online gamer.

Posted Image

The Professional Gamer

These are those Korean guys you see on TV battling in Starcraft or some other online game. They make their living playing in tournaments. They often specialize in just one game. Their excuse, of course, is that it’s their job. These guys are the cream of the crop; they are gaming’s elite. Their average income is only about 20k a year, however.

How to Find One

Go to your nearest arcade, or play a video game that has an arcade mode. Look at the high score table. See that high score? You can guess who set that record.

Posted Image

The PC Elitist

These guys are intent on barging into every conversation about consoles to insist that PCs are the best. Well, yeah, guy... We realize PCs are best, but most of us can’t afford them! These guys don’t care. They believe that if you can’t afford a gaming PC, you don’t have a right to game.

How to Find One

Type into Google “PS3 vs Xbox 360.” You’ll find the professionals siding with the PS3, the fan-boys siding with the 360, and a couple of PC elitists bashing them both. Are they right? Sure, PC is the best. That doesn't mean what they are saying is relevant to PS3 vs Xbox 360.

Posted Image

What about You?

What category do you fit into? I became a casual gamer in 2003, and became a hardcore gamer in 2009. RPGs became my favorite genre in 2011, but I still play other games, and am therefore still classified as hardcore. Do you have any other categories to add?

#9358 Guaranteed Content Poll: Firemaking Quest NPC

Posted by Blake on November 07, 2011 - 04:13 PM

Oh. My. Fucking. God. I can't breathe. Give me like a minute.Okay. I narrowed down who all of you should, and are going, to vote for. I need this, guys.Brandy-A circus firebreather and a recovering drunk? Kind of lame. Don't vote for her. She is only firemaking as a result of her being a drunk, kind of like Illini.Kicha-Not really for a firemaker who is clumsy. She seems like an uncoordinated loser, kind of like Illini.Ashe-Obsessed with ashes? If you ignore my suggestion, at least don't ignore this one. DO NOT VOTE FOR ASHE. Ashes are my least favorite part of firemaking. They are just pasty white piles of a useless substance, kind of like Illini.Nova-Likes to firemake, but refuses to get her hands sooty? Also, she's rich. Sounds like a bitch. I'm not gonna support voting for somebody who doesn't want to get black junk all over her hands, kind of like Illini.Mayerda-Only likes the cozy parts of firemaking and also a cooker? Horrible. Her intentions are hidden, so I'm guessing slut, kind of like Illini.Sera-She wants to out do Vulcan. YYYEEESSS. I never liked him. When I needed him, he would wonder in the woods and it would take me like 30 minutes to find him. When I did, I couldn't get his armor and he would only sell me tinderboxes. I think Sera is our best choice. She sounds awesome and is our best choice, kind of like David.

#32180 New and up-to-date ESO Information! The latest as of Jan 2014

Posted by Thal on January 21, 2014 - 05:24 AM

A Partial Guide to ESO (as of late January 14): Crafting, Stat Mechanics, Gear, Ability Costs and more…


Welcome to a, somewhat, complete guide to the mostly unknown aspects of ESO. There are still many topics that are not covered by this guide; most prominently there is no discussion of abilities in general, no talk of passives, etc because either this information is either freely available somewhere very easily accessible or it is still unknown at this point. What exists in this guide is an explanation of aspects of the game that will interest theory-crafters, actual crafters, and those curious about every bit of information they can get their hands on. This guide also assumes some basic knowledge of the simple mechanics of a traditional Elder scrolls game, like attribute points when levelling up, and does not take the time to explain the very well-known simple mechanics. Apologies in advance if you come across information that is not new for you. This guide will focus on up-to-date information on the following areas of the game:


 1/ Crafting and Gear: blacksmithing, enchanting, clothing, alchemy, provisioning and woodworking. Including armour and weapon Traits.


2/ An updated description on Stat mechanics and Stat amounts at lvl 50.

A. What happened to power
B. The new percentages for Health/Magicka/Stamina regeneration rates

C. Base amounts of H/M/S at lvl 50


3/ Ability Cost calculations – what will ability X cost at lvl X


4/ Armour ratings at lvl cap and spell resistance – though no mitigation percentages just yet

/1 Crafting, Gear, Enchants and More...


 (The crafting passive abilities should be updated by now in the datasheet – so I will not discuss those)

Blacksmithing, woodworking and clothing all follow similar principles and can be discussed simultaneously as a result. In all three, there are 4 important panels:


    Experience is derived from undertaking activities in the first three panels. To make this simple, I will attempt to describe the activities involved in each panel separately in the same order given above.

    The Creation panel is, of course, used for the crafting of new weapons or armour. There are 4 sliding bars which offer 4 options:

      [*]Type – this is the type of armour or weapon, for example; axe, gauntlets, helmet, staff, etc. It is important to note here that fire staff, ice staff, lightning staff, etc are all separate types and selecting one of these determines the type of damage your destruction staff uses, in case anyone was wondering how this was achieved. There is no difference in requirements and no need to “learn” these different types. This is the same for all weapons. All characters innately know of all weapon and armour types and it is simply a matter of selecting what you wish to make.
      [*]Material – so this is X number of Ingots of only one particular ingot type. I.e. 5 Iron ingots is the requirement for an Iron heavy armour chest piece. The material type determines the lvl output of the item. Iron is the lowest lvl output and therefore the least damage or armour. Voidstone ingots are the highest lvl output. Higher level items only require ingots of that level, so there is no need to keep iron ingots for use in the next tier of crafting for example unlike other mmos.
      [*]Style – Style option allows you to pick the cosmetic style of the item you craft. You can pick no style and have a generic output. Otherwise styles include all the racial styles, and other styles from previous elder scrolls games such as Imperial, Reach and Daedric. To select a style type, one must have the correct ingredient (for example, one piece of Manganese for Orc style) and have learnt the style. To learn a style involves the research panel I believe in the same way as traits are learnt (pls correct me in comments if not and I will edit) and this is discussed below.
      [*]Trait – Traits are perhaps the most crucial aspect that one will think about before hitting the create button. This determines your weapon or armour’s trait which all provide a certain benefit to your character. One-handers, two-handers and Armour all have slightly different traits that one can choose between. To pick and use a trait for your armour or weapon, you must have first learnt the trait through the research panel (discussed below) and have the appropriate item. For example, the Divines trait requires a Sapphire. You can, of course, also have no trait. Only one trait can exist one a single item. The following traits are available for selection:

      Armour Traits (including shields):

      i. Sturdy – X% to avoid decay when defeated (maximum 54%) (Yes, armour/weapons need repairing on defeats)

      ii. Impenetrable – Increase resistance to critical hits by X (maximum 210 I believe)

      iii. Reinforced - Increases total Armour and Spell resistance by  X% (maximum 19%)

      iv. Well-fitted – Reduces the cost of Sprinting by X% (21% maximum)

      v. Training – Increases armour skill line experience with this armour type by X% (maximum 21%)

      vi. Infused – Increase armour enchantment effect by X% (maximum 21%)

      vii. Exploration – Increase exploration experience gained by X% (maximum 21%)

      viii. Divines – Increase Mundus stone effects by X% (maximum 38%)


      One-handed Weapon Traits:

      i. Powered – Reduces the cooldown of weapon enchantments by X% (maximum 74%)

      ii. Charged – Increases enchantment charges by X% (maximum 49%)

      iii. Precise – Increases weapon and spell critical values by X% (maximum 27%)

      iv. Infused – Increase weapon enchantment effect by X% (37% maximum)

      v. Defending – Increases total Armour and Spell resistance by X% (maximum 21%)

      vi. Training – Increases weapon skill line experience with this weapon type by X% (maximum 21%)

      vii. Sharpened – Increase Armour and Spell Penetration by X% (maximum 19%)

      viii. Weighted – Increase weapon attack speed by X% (maximum 27%)


      Two-handed weapons (includes staves and bows)

      i. Powered – Reduces the cooldown of weapon enchantments by X% (maximum 74%)

      ii. Charged – Increases enchantment charges by X% (maximum 49%)

      iii. Precise – Increases weapon and spell critical values by X% (maximum 27%)

      iv. Infused – Increase weapon enchantment effect by X% (37% maximum)

      v. Defending – Increases total Armour and Spell resistance by X% (maximum 21%)

      vi. Training – Increases weapon skill line experience with this weapon type by X% (maximum 43%)

      vii. Sharpened – Increase Armour and Spell Penetration by X% (maximum 19%)

      viii. Weighted – Increase weapon attack speed by X% (maximum 54%)


      (The only differences between two-handers and one-handers regarding traits is the maximum % increases in the Training and Weighted traits).


      Research – The research panel allows you to select a piece of armour or weapon that you have acquired on your travels and learn the trait on that piece. You must research every available trait to be able to use it in crafting. For example, I have a shield with a trait that has “Increase armour enchantment effect by 7%”. I select it on the research panel and the trait “Infused” becomes available for research. I then hit the research button which, at base level, takes 6 hours to research. Once this time expires, I have learnt the Infused trait for all future crafting. The item is destroyed in the process, and each trait must be researched for each type of item for future crafting of the trait for that type or armour or weapon.

      Improvement – The improvement panel is similar to using a grinding stone in Skyrim in principle. That is, you use it to improve the base armour rating or weapon damage of your item. To refine an item requires a particular item that grants X% chance to refine something into another level of quality. There are 5 levels of quality:

        [*]Normal – all items you craft start this way
        [*]Fine – green colour text indicates this level
        [*]Superior – blue colour text indicates this level
        [*]Epic – purple colour text indicates this level
        [*]Legendary – gold/yellow colour text indicates this level

        I am not aware of whether or not improving an item’s quality also increases the strength of its trait or enchantment. My educated estimate at the moment would be that it does not.

        For every improvement item used you get +20% chance at improving the weapon or armour piece you have selected, up to 100% if 5 items are used.

        To demonstrate the process of improving, I will use the following example:
        Timmy wants to refine his Iron battle Axe. He goes to a blacksmithing station and selects the improvement panel. He then selects his Iron Battle Axe which is of normal quality. He seeks to Improve it to fine quality but to do so he needs to use at least one “Honing Stone”. Fortunately, he has two in his bag. He uses both giving him a 40% chance to improve his axe to fine quality. He hits the improve button and is successful. Timmy’s Iron Battle Axe is now in green text and has more damage. However, this did not save him from being devoured by the Daedric Titan he encountered on his way home.

        Extraction – The extraction panel is used to deconstruct an item in order to gain experience for your blacksmithing, clothing or woodworking. Some items grant more experience than others depending on degree of quality, rarity, etc. Some even have a trait called “Intricate” which increases the inspiration (or experience since that is what inspiration equates to in game) that you receive from deconstructing said item. (I don’t think this trait is craftable). In addition to experience, you also gain materials with some small chance of recovering a style or trait crafting item from the deconstruction. Weapons that would be made from iron, of course, only have a chance at giving iron ingots. You get the point. And, obviously, the item is destroyed in the process.

        The construction of Jewelry items is not known to me. It also involves traits though. However, the jewellery traits are indeed quite different to those I have listed for armour and weapons. For example;
        Healthy – Increases maximum Health by X.

        Arcane – Increase maximum Magicka by X.

        Of particular note and interest is the fact that not all traits seem craftable. Well, not from what I know. I have already given “Intricate” as an example. Another is “Ornate” which states: Sells to merchants for X% more. This also leads on to the question – are all enchantments one finds on items picked up in the open world available for learning and using on future crafted items or are some never able to be crafted? Guess time will tell with that one.


        Now, on to the other three crafting types… And in less detail.



        Alchemy is rather more simple in the manner it works or so it seems. You have one panel – the creation panel – in which you make all your potions. To make a potion, one does not need a recipe, but instead uses 1 “solvent” and 2 “reagents” to randomly create a potion. That is all I know of this process. No potion recipes seen as yet. Solvents and reagents are found in the open world or bought from vendors. Creation grants experience.

        [font="'times new roman', serif;"]You can find out the first effect of a plant by using it.[/font]

        An example of a potion: “Sip of Magicka” is a lvl 2 potion which does the following: Restore 24 Magicka immediately. Restore an additional 20 Magicka over 10 seconds. (30 second cooldown).




        There are two panels involved – Brewing and Cooking. Under both panels are the recipes you have learnt and each require a minimum of two ingredients either found in the open world or through vendors. Crafting a food item or a drink grants experience. Provisioning is rather simple in the way it works though not complaining. Food seems to give decent buffs for the lvl it is for. As an example, look at the following recipe found at lvl 3: “Capon Tinish Recipe”: Increase Max health by 42 for 35 minutes (5 second cooldown). That is a buff of at least 25% to total health – not bad. Not sure how recipes at lvl 50 end of business scale though. I believe you can have both one drink and one food item consumed and active in effect at the same time, but this is not confirmed.




        There are two panels involved – Creation and Extraction.
        Creation requires 3 different types of ingredients. These are 1 “Potency” type runestone, 1 “Essence” type runestone and 1 “Aspect” type runestone. Without 1 of each, you cannot craft a Glyph.
        Glyphs are items that can be applied to weapons, armour and jewelry in order to grant the item an enchantment. Each item may be able to have more than one enchantment applied from use of more than one Glyph. At the moment, examples have been done where two glyphs have been used to give two different +X damage enchantments on the same weapon (i.e. + X fire damage and + X poison on the same bow). Higher level Glyphs may yield more than one effect but that remains to be seen. An example of a Glyph is “Trifling Glyph of Reduce Spell Cost” which does the following: Reduce magicka cost of spells by 3.

        Extraction panel allows you to select a glyph you have made or found and extract either a aspect, potency or essence runestone from it. It also grants experience in the process and, of course, destroys the glyph.

        Glyphs have a type indicated in the top left corner of their description: “jewelry”, “armour” or “weapon”. Obviously, these can only be applied to their specific item type.

        Glyph effects include the following examples:

        Deal X Frost damage (weapon), Deal X fire damage (weapon), Deal X shock damage (weapon), Deal X irresistable damage (weapon), Add X max magicka (armour), Add X max health (armour), Add X max stamina (armour), Reduce stamina cost of abilities by X (Jewelry). Reduce magicka cost of spells by X (Jewelry), Add X magicka regeneration (Jewelry).

        Some examples of found enchantments on randomly picked up gear:

        Reduce cost of Dodge Roll by X% (Armour), Grant a X point damage Shield for X seconds (weapon) and Deal X magic damage and recover X health (weapon).

        Some Enchantments have an unknown cooldown – the X point damage shield example being an obvious one. They literally trigger every X seconds while in combat. This is affected by the weapon trait “Powered” that reduces such cooldowns. Others such as “Adds X max health” are always active so long as the item is equipped and its charge has not been depleted.
        Every enchanted item loses charge with time in combat and requires recharging using a filled soul gem. This is very similar to the concept in previous elder scrolls games. A depleted enchantment charge bar indicates the enchantment is no longer functioning.

        Whether a glyph can grant more than one effect as a single enchantment at higher lvls is not known to me.



        /2 Stat Mechanics


        Stat Mechanics:

        The following are the stats listed on the character panel so far:

        Max Magicka; Max Health; Max Stamina; Spell Damage; Spell Critical; Spell Resistance; Magicka Recovery; Health Recovery; Stamina Recovery; Weapon Damage; Weapon Critical; Armour.

        The important things to note is that there is no “Power” stat. Instead the “power” stat which originally determined weapon damage, spell damage and outgoing healing has now been split and included in the functions of Max Stamina and Max Magicka. Some abilities and descriptions will still refer to “power”, however, but will clearly imply whether the “power” increase is an increase to spell damage, outgoing healing or weapon damage.
        Max magicka now reads as: “Determines how many spells you can cast and how effective those spells are. Magicka regenerates slowly over time and can be restored in combat by using a potion”.

        Max Stamina now reads as: “Determines weapon damage and weapon ability damage. Sprint, bash and sneak all consume stamina. Stamina regenerates slowly over time and can be restored in combat using a potion”.
        Max Health now reads as: “The amount of damage you can take in combat. Health regenerates slowly over time and can be restored in combat by healing or using a potion”.


        The next point is quite interesting and is a deviation of the original information first released on the web about how regeneration works. Originally it was assumed or told that the values for regeneration meant how much per second was regen’d. However, the descriptions of Magicka/Stamina/Health Recovery all read as: “When in combat, you regenerate X Magicka/Stamina/Health every two seconds”.
        Yeah, every TWO seconds! Not per second as once thought.

        In addition, the values for regeneration rates were once told to be that every character regenerated 3% of max magicka/health/stamina per second while in combat. Number extrapolations now put regeneration as:
        In combat regeneration of stamina = 5.5% max stamina every TWO seconds.

        In combat regeneration of Health = 2.4% max health every TWO seconds.

        In combat regeneration of magicka = between 4 to 5% max magicka every TWO seconds.*
        * now magicka numbers seem a bit strange at the moment so the estimate lies safely between 4-5% and that is very certain to be the case but not the exact digits yet like the other two.

        This new information on regeneration rates makes theory-crafting quite a bit different now… And yes, health regen is quite a bit lower than the other two and all stats are per every 2 seconds – an important thing not to forget when doing build calculations!

        Base amounts of the 3 main stats are as follows at lvl 1:
        Magicka: 100

        Health: 150

        Stamina: 100

        And at lvl 50 they are:

        Magicka: 1080

        Health: 1130

        Stamina: 1080


        And, yes, each stat seems to increase by 20 points per level (not including the points you place into each using the attribute point you get per level of which there are 49)
        Attribute points into one stat I believe are still capped at no more than 30 into one stat.

        For every attribute point placed into both Magicka and Stamina, you receive +10 to either your total magicka or stamina. However, for every attribute point placed into Health, you receive +20 to your total health.

        /3 Ability Costs

        Ability Costs:

        There seems to be an accurate formula for solving how much any given ability will cost (either cost in stamina or magicka) at any level so long as you know what the ability costs at level 1.

        The equation is:

        The ability cost at lvl ( X ) = The cost of the ability at lvl 1 + (The cost of the ability at lvl 1) x ( X - 1 )

        Hence at lvl 50, an ability costs = The cost of the ability at lvl 1 x 8.
        At other levels, round the number you get down to the lowest whole number to get the true cost since ESO does not use any fractions or non-whole numbers.
        (Which is nice and simple)

        As an example, at lvl 50: Immovable costs = 448 stamina (It also provides +850 armour and spell resistance at that lvl)


        /4 Armour and Spell Resistance Info

        Armour Ratings and Spell Resistance:

        At lvl 50 each armour type gives the following armour rating for wearing a full set of each (all 7 pieces):
        Light armour = 785

        Medium Armour = 1180

        Heavy Armour = 1461


        You must note that this is the total of gear that is crafted lvl 50 rank 10 elite AND of normal quality (so not improved by crafting). No idea on percentage mitigations yet.

        Base Spell resistance for every character at lvl 50 is NOT determined by armour amount and is NOT determined by any stat so far. It is rather surprising, but your base Spell Resistance is determined purely by what level your character is. And then modified by passives, gear that adds X spell resist, armour traits, etc.
        So the base spell resistance of every character at lvl 50 = 1100
        (It starts at 120 at lvl 1 and increases by 20 per level gained)




        And that is the end of my guide to ESO so far. Hope it helped. Will add to it either here or in a new post if more information becomes available to me. Post corrections in the comments if you know of any. Thanks Guys.

Internet was down for a 5 days. I come back to this topic.

A lot of crap I wished I could of said, but way toooooo much to bring up and comment on now. I guess it's time for......


    [*]Glad to see the creation of this topic. Although I can see how this can be seen as a "stupid" way to end the clan, even though it was never an official end to the clan, similar topics have bolstered activity for awhile.
    [*]OMFG IT'S HENRY!#!#!#@!@!#@!#!#@!
    [*]Well I'm the only moderator, so I guess I'm the one guilty of moderating abuse. If you are referring to me closing your topic for posting in the wrong forum, then I'm guilty. If you are referring to me wishing you luck in finding a mature clan with members such as yourself, then no, that isn't moderation abuse. Neither is the other thing, but I digress.
    [*]I guess everybody is to blame, more or less. I know I've been lazy on the TRR side of things, though I've been focusing on ElderSouls. So naturally, I'm aiming for TRR leader. Comments?
    [/list]So let's put all the negative things that were said behind us and focus on a brighter tomorrow.

#17456 New Clan History

Posted by MstrMonopoly on May 29, 2012 - 11:45 PM

The Runescape Rebelz, 2009-2012

by MstrMonopoly

What's the greatest story ever told, you ask? Well, I don't know a single epic saga greater than the one The Runescape Rebelz have provided. Now, you might be calling me crazy - this is a world in which the Lord of the Rings exists, after all. But after you read these stories, you'll probably consider the Lord of the Rings to be crappy shit all too obsessed with elves.

I joined this clan in June 2009 - one of three notable members to join on the same day, along with a temperamental British guy named Master_Liono and some rich guy who had 99 RC before RuneSpan, Moghadasian. Both of these guys always showed up to wars, so they're cool in my book. But for the first three months of my TRR tenure, I basically only hung around in the Clan Chat - after three months, I only had 40 posts or so on the forums, almost all of them "gratz" or some stupid spam like that. Some of the more notable members I met at the time were Blexun, back when he was nice to everyone, and Nuggeh, a beloved level 3 skiller, back when he was just three years old instead of four. Together, we formed the epic IRC channel #mindmyskillz, an IRC whose fortunes paralleled those of TRR's, but with a lot more lulz and a lot more Edwin. Later invites to #mindmyskillz included WilsonsWar and Isaiah_T. Seriously, everything fun and noteworthy happened in IRC.

After about three months, I got promoted to events team after being heartily encouraged by David. I still didn't use the forums that much, but that changed after I started posting lots of reflections. It was around this time that major drama started going down. One of the Council members, Lord_Caspen, who everyone hated because he always bragged about his stats despite the fact that his account was given to him, plus he was a roleplaying douchebag, started stirring up some trouble. Caspen never really worked and was more famous for the phrase "Hail and well met, friend [x]," which was parodied mercilessly by the denizens of #mindmyskillz after Caspen's departure. Anyway, Caspen got in a serious feud with Illini, the old leader of TRR that happened when Caspen's even more retarded friend Wil_0rtiz started claiming that all poor people were dumb. When Illini understandably attacked Mr. 0rtiz for this, Caspen appealed to TRR's other founder, Traaginen. Unfortunately, Caspen and David were also in a fight because David had told him that a roleplaying requirement for the clan was retarded. Caspen then quit in a huff. I don't have the picture on me, but Caspen was a ginger also.

Anyway, Caspen's welcome departure from the clan opened up a Council spot for a hard-working Events Team member named MstrMonopoly. I joined Blexun and a southerner fond of using the n-word, Jaker-out, on the Council. Needless to say, I was the only one who was really doing good work on the Council at the time, but we also had two excellent leaders in Jamie and Blue_Speed, both of whom were very charismatic and knew how to inspire a clan. We also had two other extremely important members, Allan, our webmaster, and Henry, our resident troll. Allan, to put things simply, knew his shit. Although he could be a bit of a big spender when it came to web hosting, and always changed his mind on which hosting service the Rebelz should use, he was undeniably a smart guy. Then, there was Henry. To be honest, I could write about Henry more than pretty much anyone else in this clan. Not only was Henry a great council member and probably one of the two best warrers TRR has ever had (the other being Drags, who won war MVP with excellent binding more often than probably anyone else), he was also a masterful troll. I remember one incident with an emo kid named Ninja who basically spammed the clanchat with crummy stuff related to his problems. Basically, Henry flamed him out of the clan chat. While this may have been bad for Ninja's life, it was great for the clanchat and Rebel life and clanchat flourished throughout late 2009 and early 2010.

There was another member of less import to the clan's history but of much greater import to clan culture - Pkth4tn3l50n, or Nelson. Nelson was often ridiculed for his stupidity and constant bragging, but truth be told he was a hilarious guy, despite being banned at least three times from the clan. The first helped lead to the split between Caspen and David, because Caspen hated Nelson and the clan leaders Jamie and David honestly didn't mind his particular brand of marijuana-drenched humor.

And the second incident led in part to the first great schism of TRR. It happened when Nelson got on Jamie's account and kicked people who insulted him from the clan chat for an hour. While this was undeniably a clusterfuck, it further highlighted the differences in leadership style between David, a natural taskmaster, and Jamie, who was far more laidback. In March 2010, discontent between TRR's leader, Jamie, and its founder, David, led directly to the first and at least second most successful TRR breakway clan, Blessed Hunters (BH). BH had strong support from TRR's webmaster, Allan, and a couple of critical members including Jaker-out and Nelson. However, BH ultimately proved to be non-threatening to TRR (its members still hung out frequently in TRR IRCs and the clan-chat) and would often invite TRR members to its events. After a month, BH dissolved because there wasn't really enough to differentiate itself from TRR, although it did run a fair number of events and attract a few high level players. Most BH members, like Nelson, Yailux, and Allan (who never really left) came back to TRR. The others, like Jamie, disappeared for a while. We were running on a one-leader system.

The thing was, though, that leader wasn't Blue. It was me. After Blue joined the army and thus had less time to fake fight dragons, David noticed that we had run out of leaders and promoted me. In addition, David stepped into more of an active role as clan leader.

There was a problem with TRR at the time, though. The usual pre-summer lull hit and suddenly we were left with all of one member doing work, the Councilman RaianTFallen, formerly of the recruitment team. Raian was another emo kid but one who could be counted on to provide a solid job when necessary. It thus must have been a shock to him when, after approximately two weeks, David and I decided to fire pretty much everyone on the staff as part of a clean-up and allow them to reapply for their positions. This move backfired, as Raian got peeved and formed his own clan, Stricken By Fate (SBF). Stricken By Fate had the backing of longtime hilarious member Aliath and his goon, Techy, who was mean to me for no good reason. It's probably because I associated with Blexun and Techy hated Blexun. This goes back to another time when Techy, Blexun, Aliath, and a guy named Shampooninja were best of friends and had a League of Evil that was funny when Shampy was there but unfunny when he wasn't and in general fell apart and it was like Sex and the City only the actors were more bangable. But that's before my time, and it may surprise some of you but for most of my tenure here I pretty much felt like a newbie. Anyway, SBF managed to pull in Morkid, this awesome Israeli guy who I thought would never betray us. However, after pulling in some of the obvious defectors like Starchar, a guy who hung around on ET doing literally nothing for 2 years, SBF fell apart and became Epitaph, a new clan that made Aliath co-leader. As with all Aliath clans, it, too, fell apart, and the members who joined came crawling back to rejoin the Rebelz juggernaut.

Through all this turmoil, TRR was still going strong - hey, it was summer 2010, after all, TRR's never had a bad summer. We had an impressive new ET - led by the infamous Bgs1977. Bgs, better known as Jeremy, was an extremely active Events Team member, probably the best I've ever had as a leader in TRR. We also had a bunch of good recruiters at the time, led by Fergal, a kid who at 12 was more mature than another member, Delroth, will be at 40. The core staff was firing on all cylinders as we barged through the summer. We were averaging 30-40 topics that had been bumped in the past 24 hours, often pulled 30-40 or more to wars, and had consistent events for the first time in TRR's history - many created by BGS, who even on council was creating 3 events a week. It was a renaissance period for TRR, and one of the few times we went basically without major drama. Sure, there was Nelson, and the constant fighting with Ancient Legion (for those of you who don't know, AL is our rival clan. They are obsessed with disqualifying us based on retarded technicalities and then when we try to do it, they laugh and claim they would have won anyway. Seriously, those guys are idiots, and warring them just for the fun of watching their post-war reaction was priceless) but TRR stayed mostly stable throughout the summer.

Sadly, all good things have to come to an end. Despite Jeremy's terrific work ethic and mostly on-point liberal commentary, he had a weakness - a weakness for pornography. Jeremy propositioned pretty much every member of the clan he knew well for nudes, guys and girls alike. He became obsessed with this one girl from the Netherlands, PureUranium, and it was this struggle that ultimately defined Jeremy's tenure as a Council member. Although Jeremy's behavior was tolerated to an extent because of his productivity, he did two things that crossed the line - one, he propositioned nudes from someone he didn't know well and caused them basically to quit the clan, and two, he posted pornography in #rebelz after David and I speciifically told him not to. This led to Jeremy's first firing from Council. However, we did not tell Jeremy that he could never be Council again.

And thus the Lorena saga started. Maybe it was the fact that she had pretty blue eyes. Maybe it was the fact that she was a "lying, scheming bitch." Maybe it was the fact that she had tits and played Runescape. Whatever the reason, TRR fell head over heels for her in October 2010. And when I say TRR, I mean Jeremy, Delly, and IRC stalwart xdan. While Delly's involvement with Lorena was never serious because of his high, girlish Scottish voice and his preoccupation with kilts, the fight between xdan and Jeremy led to a serious rift in clan relations. Jeremy became increasingly depressed, planning to commit suicide multiple times, and listening to Frank Sinatra on repeat for hours. Meanwhile, Lorena continued to lead him on. This only worsened Jeremy's depression. Soon, it was revealed that a fourth player had staked a claim to Lorena's heart - Allan. Somehow, Allan obtained a sexually graphic (but not nude) picture of Lorena and it got reposted endlessly by Jeremy, Dan, Delly, and yeah, a fucking fifth dude, Ozzy_Rules_U. Ozzy, also known as Carter Weinman, was honestly a decent person most of the time, until later, and you'll find out about that. While this was all fine and dandy as long as it was going on in private channels, a fight over Lorena ensued. Allan presented himself as a man above this chaos but he was really interested in her too. The main players, however, were Jeremy and Dan, and Jeremy once again posted nude pictures of girls in #rebelz.

For any other member, this probably would have earned a slap on the wrist. Hell, Allan linked to pornography literally the day before. I realize now that this was a double standard and letting go of things, especially considering Jeremy's precarious mental state at the time, was the best idea. However, the fact stands that David and I had repeatedly warned Jeremy not to get involved with nudes at the time, so we demoted Jeremy back to member. Again, we told him that he could work his way back up to High Council, but this time he was having none of it, and sulked around a few more days before forming what was probably the most successful TRR branchoff and what probably helped kill it temporarly, The Legacy of Legends (TLoL).

Both Fergal and Jeremy were very popular members and when they formed their clan a lot of TRR members joined TLoL. TRR and TLoL were always at odds with each other and we both sort of hated each other. This was because TRR felt that TLoL was actively recruiting from TRR (which they were at some point) and because TLoL thought that this was justified if people were sick of TRR (which some people were). Anyway, Jeremy and Fergal ran the clan starting in October 2010. For a while, the rivalry ignited both clans - activity was high on the forums, and good ol' one-upsmanship kept events and recruitment running. Then, the winter hit. Usually, winter coincides with a decline in activity anyway. However, this time it was even worse than usual due to the TRR player-base being split up between TRR and TLoL. Events basically ceased functioning, and recruitment dried up. In addition, I grew really busy with other commitments and resigned my leadership position in TRR, and the loyal council member Terravilla replaced me as clan leader. I don't know much about the next three months or so but what I do know is that TRR was largely dead when I came back.

When I DID come back, I found that both TRR and TLoL were in a pretty bad place. TRR was arguably worse at this point, actually. Although tLoL didn't have much clan chat activity, TRR didn't even have a set of forums. It was around this time that in a fit of desperation, David and I promoted Delroth to Council - and lo and behold, he actually did some legit work the first week he was on the Council. Fortunately, TRR got back together just in time for summer, and thankfully another old member came back to provide some posts - T_ranger101, who basically was the events team for a good part of the summer of 2011. It was at this time that relations between TRR and tLoL really turned sour. This was because of three incidents, and I will share the blame between TRR and TLoL because it's only fair.

1. TLoL somehow recruited the traitor Just_Kaiden into being a mole

Without Fergal's knowlege, Jeremy decided to get a leg up on TRR by recruiting TRR Council holdover Kaiden to his cause. During this time, Jeremy stole a fuckton of Council logs and found out that

2. TRR made a note to poach StarTrip back from tLoL

StarTrip, otherwise known as one of the top 5 recruiters in TRR history, had fled to tLoL because, yeah, TRR's forums blew up. TRR always wanted StarTrip back because we felt he had left during a time of confusion, and tLoL always felt the opposite.

3. Ozzy

Ozzy defected from TRR to TLoL because he was promised a ranking position. This is why no one likes him. He also made a big shitstorm out of the decision, in similar fashion to LeBron James's "The Decision," and in the end Ozzy won zero rings.

Anyway, TRR and tLoL hated each other at this time. TRR had overtaken TLoL in terms of activity by midsummer due to its larger base of past players, though, and the IRC, once tLoL's main hangout due to their spammers Jeremy and Fergal, had started to decline in membership and activity, and was mostly limited to ranking members. Relationships started to ease up, especially between the leaders of the clan.

The most important returnee besides T_ranger was CrazyCow, who quickly became council and helped with the administration of the clan. He was a decent Council member over the summer but then he left due to school around November.

Then Heated Deus flipped his shit for no apparent reason. He bitched and moaned about literally everything, especially when we found out Kaiden was the mole. We had ignored the incident for a while because who gives a shit, and eventually we found out it actually was Kaiden because the only other possible person was Delly and Delly is too retarded to do anything. Basically, Deus bitched about us demoting Kaiden even though it was clear Kaiden was the mole and then he quit. The Deus incident somehow managed to fire up tensions. It was at this time that I casually mentioned to my brother that I wouldn't mind if tLoL's website was completely destroyed. I shouldn't have said that. By the time August rolled around, TRR and TLoL were on the best of terms, helped by a girl named Emily who literally everyone liked - it was a wonder she didn't become another Lorena. It's probably because Emily wasn't a complete manipulatory bitch. Anyway, Emily's parents were crazy and right after she entered into a fateful e-relationship with Jeremy they took her internet away. Jeremy was left in a state of ruin.

And then my birthday rolled around. I take full responsibility for the actions of my brother on my birthday, and I am completely fine with tLoL members blaming me for this. Basically, he hacked LeBrozzy and used his account to seriously fuck up tLoL's website. This was more symbolic than anything, though (and Fergal can back me up here). tLoL got a new website. The most important thing to take away from that mishap is that tLoLers got sick of the drama and quit. This, combined with Jeremy's mental state because of the loss of Emily and Fergal's decreased activity because of school effectively killed TLoL. Fergal later returned to lead us.

Posted by Blake on September 15, 2013 - 06:09 PM

Oh, young Tristan. You have much to learn.


Likes aren't something to be clicked needlessly. Oh no, far from it. Likes are gifts; miracles that only the lucky can collect. If you try to fish for them, you shall fail. Not saying you are fishing for them of course. Just saying likes are rare, and as with all rare things, encouraging the mass collection of such isn't necessarily in our best interests.


What is that? You want to know how you can increase your chances to obtain these likes? Well normally I wouldn't devulge such information, but this convoluted conundrum as whetted my appetite.

Blake's Guide to Internet Karma

    [*]Mention your genitals. This is guranteed to work 45% of the time. Penis.
    [*]Write in a manner that is serious/satirical/jokingly/incomprehensible.
    [*]Inside jokes are a dependable source for likes. So can you believe Henry was an Asian?
    [*]Length is important, but not to the point it is hard to look at. Use a lot of spaces inbetween small paragraphs.
    [*]Make lists.

    And there you have it, young Tristan. That will put you on the path towards likes, 100% satisfaction guaranteed!* Of course if you are a female, there is only one thing you need to do. Constantly call attention to the fact you are a girl, say stupid things, and mention your breasts and/or genitals.





    Eldersouls isn't responsible for any likes you don't recieve while following this advice. Eldersouls isn't responsible for any injuries, public embarassment, or the like that may result in mentioning your genitals. Eldersouls isn't approved by the USDA. Use responsibility.

#27206 Video: Leaked Beta Footage 1

Posted by xXAgeOfPandazXX on April 20, 2013 - 06:09 PM

All of you criticizing this should note that you are watching footage of a game under NDA clearly in an incomplete area of the game.. All feed back from PAX.. and the focus groups (Guildleaders/MMO veterans) that zenimax invited had nothing but positive feed back, because they were playing areas of the game in which Zenimax had completed.. judging the whole game by what you see in a leaked video, that should of never been leaked as this person is under NDA is completely stupid.. The first person seen in this video should not be taken as final product.. Zenimax has not yet confirmed completion of it, as for the graphics seen in this video..  this person is playing on the low settings, and is using a terrible recording software.. Also there are probably missing textures not yet added into the game.  I'm not a fan boy.. i'm simply defending a game that is getting bad rep by footage of an incomplete area of the game while the game was under NDA, and don't want people to assume that this is the final version of ESO.

#2662 How to take/upload Print Screens/Screenshots and take Videos.

Posted by Stuart on July 31, 2011 - 05:33 PM

NoobyGuy requested this.

How to Print Screen/Screenshots:

If you want to take screenshots you'll need some software. I use PicPick, it's free for personal or non-commercial use and is great for taking screenshots and editing them (cropping,blurring,pixelating,adding text etc)

Here is the download link:
http://www.picpick.org/download (FREE)

To take these screenshots you need to press the PrtSc key on your keyboard.
The PrtSc key is in the same area as the Ins and Del key (On my Keyboard)

Posted Image
Please note, this isn't my keyboard.

How to Upload Them!:

To upload photos you can use many websites.
Some popular ones are tinypic, imageshack or photobucket.

TinyPic is free registration but isn't ideal for going back and getting your uploads again.
Photobucket is great, registration is required but I would highly recommend it for uploads.



How to take videos!:

There are many programmes that can record the screen.
A popular one is Camtasia Studio 7, this is not free however and costs quite alot.

A free solution to that would be CamStudio.
CamStudio isn't as polished as other software but it gets the job done.
Here is the link:


Another great screen-recorder worth mentioning is uTIPu, this is also free.



#25318 I Have Become One with the Internet

Posted by David on January 18, 2013 - 10:42 AM

So today I walked into my English class and discovered that we were going to be spending the whole day setting up a Wordpress blog for ourselves for future assignments. I figured that since we're in the year 2013 the majority of college students would be quite familiar with the whole process and I was up for a pretty slow lecture.

I was wrong.

As my professor began walking us through the process of how to create a Wordpress account - yes, seriously, this story begins with typing in your email address and hitting a button - shit immediately hit the fan. A good 40% of our class was unable to successfully complete this task, and "Teh sitez is broken z0mg LEL!1" rang throughout the classroom.

As the class continued, more and more people became lost as my professor explained the basic processes of things like making a post, clicking a check-box for privacy, and making a title.

To give you examples of the sort of things I was listening to while this was all going on, I began jotting down actual quotes in my notebook (instead of, you know, taking class notes)...

"How do you get to your own blog again?"

"How do you get the link in your email?"

"What is a URL?"

"Where do you get the URL?"

Keep in mind that these are actual quotes.

I thought back to the thousands of PM's and help threads involving similar issues that I've had to solve for people over the years. It was at this moment that I realized I needed to make a decision - to use my knowledge for good to help others in their time of need, or to sit back and laugh at the hilarity of the entire situation.

It was at this moment that something odd happened. People that are bilingual often describe the magical time where you first realize that you are actually thinking in your second language. Well, as I gazed on upon the dozens of confused classmates, flustered professor, and technology-illiterate whoo-girls, a single thought entered into my mind.

It was not a coherent sentence, mind you. It was just this single gif...

It was at this moment in my life that I realized that I had officially become fully fluent and integrated in the internet.

After coming upon this realization, I looked back and chuckled to myself over the previous "use my knowledge for good/evil" dilemma - how could I have even considered there to be an option?

I proceeded to then sit back and thoroughly enjoy the mass chaos that was unfolding before my eyes over these simplistic tasks, all the while pleasurably keeping the knowledge that could fix all of the issues people were experiencing to my smug self.

Bored, so I decided to rate your signatures. I'll be using the Blex Rating System, where I carefully evaluate the good and the bad things about your signature, ignore all of that, and just say bad things about you as a person. Or not. I haven't worked out the kinks yet.

#21884 RuneScape's 30 Second Log In Advertisements

Posted by David on August 28, 2012 - 11:58 AM

If you're unaware, Jagex now has you watch a 30 second advertisement every time you log in if you're F2P. It's absolutely awful. If I still played I would quit instantly.I know RuneScape players have been complaining about Jagex's incompetence for years tongue-in-cheek, but I think now we can finally face the facts. RuneScape is just irrefutably complete garbage at this point. I don't know why anyone would play such a game when the developer has resorted to complete bullshit and sold out game achievements (you know, the entire reason you play) completely by introducing the ability to buy everything in-game with real cash.GG RuneScape. On the bright side I've rid myself of dealing with the train wreck developer that is Jagex. By the way, Jagex, protip: don't spend ten years developing a game on a platform that was dead when you started and then wonder why everyone gives your game shit.
