Agreed, Crit Focus is too situational at that point. Even with Falcon bracers (GET THESE) you're getting only 10% chance to even confirm a crit anyway. Not that you shouldn't take it (your choice), but NOT before Manyshot which is a promised 100% damage increase every full attack.
Also agree you can ignore Dodge. IF you want a defensive feat get Iron Will. You'll be hit more by mumbojumbo in the back rows more than you will sword and arrows ideally (not always). Plus in a game about WITCHES this goes double. It's not a necessary feat either though.
By timeline it is not disel as the game takes place in 1912. Disel is the inter war period. In themes it is disel punk.
Well with Armor Expert trait, Shattered Star's campaign trait Serpent's Runner (Armor), Comfort enchantment, and Mithral you can completely negate the 6 ACP. If you can grab Mithral Hellknight plate somehow you can do it without the campaign trait.
Course you have to use a little extra gold and traits but just stating it can be done for those that won't allow the Celestial Plate.
I found the magic system alright and performed well enough with it. Though I had a single Air mage and only used the basic one rune spell, but I can understand other people's frustrations. I just wish exp divided evenly among the party and not just people that hit. Created some aberrant behavior on my part. Beat the game on Old School and Hard.
I actually had to argue with Andius for over a hour about guild taxes. He was absolutely against the idea. He assumes whether you're a PvPer or Non PvPer you'll act like an altruistic communist (<----joke) and just donate what is needed and than some. While he doesn't seem to like the idea of taxes he doesn't like the idea of free loading either. It's weird I know.
So, once the PCs get to Irrisen, they have to make saves against the cold every ten minutes, yes? And they travel for more than a day. So that's at least 144 fort saves, less 60 for about 10 hours in camp. How is it possible to survive that without endure elements or cold resistance? You're almost guaranteed to roll a few 1s, even if you have a good fort save and cold-weather gear. Plus, the DC goes up for every previous save. So, long story short, how does this not just kill everyone except the Boreal Sorcerer in one day?
^ The NEW Rum Ration
Some (12) rogue archers with Inubrix arrows kicked the crap out of the AC fighters in our Shattered Star campaign. Inubrix ignores all armor and shield bonuses. Use a few if you ever want to wound him a little. Also Inubrix means the weapon does one size category smaller in damage and has the broken condition.
@ Bluddwolf, Its not technically hijacking when it serves the purpose of the thread. Community building despite BS drama. But if you think it would get some actually support I would be fine with a MWO thread for the sole purpose of forming a PFO company.
@ Being, What do you think my "Shotgun" Cat uses? ^______^
@ All, Regardless of what we play, or even IF we play anything, I hope we each make a effort to spend time with each other and not be isolationists in our own communities.
I had a great time talking with Darsch this evening and am glad I got him to download Mechwarrior. I can't wait to play a few rounds with him later on in the next few weeks.
As the newest member of the TEO council I would like to first say I'm honored to have the Veil as allies. If we weren't friends I would be very bored on Monday nights instead of guest spotting in Camlo's game. We are also all for running drills with you and any other guild that wishes to do so.
TEO can also be counted on to do the right by the community. We are a Good organization. If you ask us for help we WILL be there for you. To do what is right, especially when it is inconvenient, is what being good is to me.
That said, Darsch, if Andius starts to play on our TE minecraft server I totally welcome you to join to grief him with lava, TNT, and monster spawn eggs. Whatever it takes to satisfy your honor.
Yet you used the word "removed" hence my issue. Leads to misunderstanding.
I addressed the "Enough" post above in a Edit. I was warning Devent not to get "douchey" and get his posts deleted by a mod. Slippery slopes you understand.
I meant the "Andius is out" as a way for Bluddwolf to give me his attention and to respond directly to me and he did. I thanked him for it. Thank you as well for replying timely.
I fear Papaver hit the nail on the head above and this subject has derailed in a horrible fashion. I spoke with some of the Veil this evening VERY briefly on my core belief of the "treaty". Responses were positive and I agreed with them that this is something that needs to sit and to come back to. Next time the manner it will be brought up will be after much consultation in and more importantly OUTSIDE the guild.
Again thank you and have a nice night.
EDITED: To be less douchey as I'm up late.

This whole proposal has not been a unified front, even your own membership has contradicted each other, in this very thread. At least one has been removed, as well as called out by another one of your members.
Don't spout lies please. No one was removed. If any posts went missing they were deleted by the poster not because they were told to sit in time out. Same goes if anyone stopped posting period.
What are you referring to about being "called out"? Please elaborate on the specific incident. I'll be disappointed if it's the "Enough of that." comment I made because I was trying to reign in a member from descending into the slippery slope of aggressive trolling.
Now some supporters have been douchey. I can point out dissenters too. Maybe the amounts aren't even but I as a "supporter" have been civil and if I have made ANYONE feel like an "less than ideal gamer" I apologize. That said, don't round us up as one group hating on the other. Its not "the truth", for either side. You have INDIVIDUALS address THEM.
Sounds fine and reasonable to me. Thank you for a civil and will written response.
Oh if that's the case then that loops back into my reply to 1. F$~# the word "griefer". Bandits be bandits and can do what they want. This treaty should have NOTHING to do with them.
Hey Bluddwolf, Andius is out. I'm in. AKA ignore him because you are talking to me, and I'm talking to you. Just two people talking. Because him and I are talking about two different things or might as well be as far as you are concerned.
1. No it does't. See the word "griefer"? Notice I've never used it in my posts. Let's take that word and tell it to diaf. Hell, I shouldn't of used "goon" but it was for example sake. My bad. We need to define, "What is a great threat?". That's a fair a VERY legit question.
2. Hmm, I'm not a RP but I can see your concern there. That WOULD require more knowledge on things like the war mechinca and how it would affect alignment.
3. I don't understand could you expand on that? I apologize. Do you mean farmers stay on the farm?
4. This should be a non-issue with what I have in mind but I can agree to that with what we know so far.
5. ABSOF%+%INGLUTELY. It wouldn't be "Good" to do otherwise.
Waruko, Andius, etc, is this essentially a proposal to agree to mass, coordinated action in response to a mass, coordinated threat?
I can't, nor will I speak for Andius and you can ask him, we hardly ever agree. But yes that is what I'm suggesting. Andius should not be the leader of such a coordinated action, nor do I think the treaty suggests it. It's a coalition. There would a war counsel. There would have to be AGREEMENT on what is a threat. No one man can "pull the trigger". This again is not an anti-griefer treaty meant to be abused to "police" PFO. Sometimes there are threats even the "largest organization" can't handle alone. Rovagug was not beaten by a single god, hence again why I named the treaty such.
It should be a thing that should NEVER be enacted unless its under DIRE circumstances and hopefully it should never be used. Ever.
The public are welcome into the voice chat and bullet points can be posted. I'm not suggesting making the talks hidden but in a setting where people can explain themselves better. Because looking above seems like there is a lot of misunderstanding. As long as everyone is on the same page I really don't care if they are on the forums or elsewhere.
^ This. Someone wanted to have a anti-"goon" treaty and asked for a RP reason. Hence I brought up Rovagug and thus it was named. This is meant to be a treaty against a BIG threat. A troll KINGDOM not some petty ass group of bandits. I feel this could of been stated clearer. Also any real discussion about this should be done over Skype, Teamspeak or something similar.
OK EVERYONE please look here.
You are not signing a treaty because IT DOES NOT EXIST. You are simply signing a "Hey I am interested in helping you MAKE THE TERMS of the treaty." So you are not committing to "terms" your are committing to a debate and a talk to help create the treaty into something you WOULD sign. That's all people.
Don't worry TEO has a ruling council which distributes power equally except in times of war. Such as when reasonable doubt of magics of massive destruction has been reported in a neighboring kingdom. In that case emergency powers are granted to Andius. As you can see a safe and reasonable system.
Is Kikko Armor for real? At 30 GP? +5 Armor Bonus? Or has that been a typo that's since been corrected?
Kikko armour is slightly better than scale mail, and four-mirror armour is very inexpensive. However, both are still inferior to a breastplate, so I don't see a big issue. People should be much angrier about the haramaki I suppose.
Not quite, both equal out to the same AC with +5 mithril with a Dex of at least +6. Breastplate giving +11 total with a +5 Max Dex for a total of 26 AC. Kikko gets +10 with a Max Dex of +6 for again 26 AC. Kikko has a +1 to Touch AC while Breastplate has +1 to Flat footed. Both have 0 armor check plenty if Breastplate has a Comfort enchant. So for a high Dex character (Dervish dancers, archery builds, etc) neither is a clear winner unless you're too cheap for a 5k enchant or you prefer higher touch of FF AC. If your Dex is only +5 than yes Breastplate wins by one point, that or the DM cock blocks all Asian gear.
Course I might of misunderstood that and you meant both Scale and Four mirror. In that case I wrote a bunch of crap for no reason and I need to go to sleep. :P
