I finally cobbled together a DPS tanking Build… now to see who I can sucker into letting me learn to tank 18s.

OMG :) Bella let me melee DPS again and I broke 3k!!! (Granted, I was bad and did not go after pods and only helped with nearby adds.) I actually flubbed my rotation quite badly towards the end, so I feel like if I hadn’t I might’ve been higher.  Of course then I ate it to final resort because I didn’t know where to go as a melee dps (the tank “Safe spot” is dangerous for a DPS because it hurts you and you don’t have enough life to live unlike the tank).
Tonight’s raid was 100% Lumie and 100% full of terrible, terrible puns.  
Also I got pretty tanky PVP builds from Nut and Bella - can’t wait to try them out. I was going to try it out in the one SH I got in tonight, but we were like 4 tanky people so I swapped to ranged/corrupt/mani DPS. 
Changes since the last time I melee’ed - swapped to a crit power sword (from my pen tanking one) with a blue signet of fury; messed with the rotation to better align with some of the things in Katarina1’s guide (though I wasn’t ready to go full on with that) so it was builder x 6, do or die + reckless, tear ‘em up, steel echo, dancing blade.

I found a Taiver!
The “safe spot” is still good for dps, you  just have to remember to use a leech potion and keep whacking the big guy and everything will be ok. (you can even use your Curio just to be safer)
Do you have a CIB? It’s really really good as an extra damage boost as mdps. You just need to equip Shelter and use it every other rotation to proc CIB for the crit pow % boost. Seeing Shelter is an aoe heal and you’re usually close to the tanks as a mdps, CIB will always proc.
Master House is way better that DoD in longer fights like the raid: 2 x 20% > 1 x 25%
And remember. the Whip is your friend! (Crack + Whiplash + Binding)

OMG IT’S A LOLAS!!! :D :D :D hiiii
Oh thank you thank you for these tips!!!  I do have CIB (and equilibrium) I just really want to get my rotation down to instinct so I can work in new stuff like doing a Shelter into it.  I’m a very slow learner and while I’m first learning I get flustered/confused badly so I try to take it one element at a time. So sad.  Like conceptually I was like “what if I popped this curio barrier and stood in the tank safe spot” and instead of doing either, one time I just ran into the filth and died, the other time I got confused, ran the wrong way, and died to final resort. LOL
I think I should be able to swap Master’s House for DoD easily though :D. Even my brain can handle that! Sweet.
I should really carry the whip!  I just always carry Death from Above as a safety net, but honestly I should not need to (I saw Theyself’s guide forbids it - lol).

Dear God, Lolas is on here? No one is safe! :P
Why does TheySelf forbid DfA? Inquiring minds want to know!

Math Test Notes

  • cf(x) = cf’(x)
  • f(x)+or - g(x) = f’(x)+ or - g’(x)
  • f(x)*g(x)=(f’(x)*g(x))+(f(x)*g’(x))
  • f(x)/g(x)=((g(x)*f’(x))-(f(x)*g’(x))/g(x)^2
  • f(g(x))= f’(g(x))*g(x)

TEXTS FROM AGARTHA: OCTOBER/HALLOWEEN/SAMHAIN CONTEST

textsfromagartha:

textsfromagartha:

In honor of reaching 100 followers, and in honor of the month of October being amazing, Texts From Agartha is going to have a small contest. There will be first-place, second-place and third-place winners. Read on to get the details!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Any TSW player can participate. You don’t have to follow TFA, but it would probably help you stay in the loop.

WHAT IS THE REWARD?

I’m still working out the schematics of how I’m going to reward people. My basic idea is that I’ll reward in points or cash shop purchases, but I’m going to do a bit more research and update this section in big, bold print once I figure it out. There will be first, second, and third place prizes as well as an (admittedly smaller) drawing prize.

  • First Place Prize - ???
  • Second Place Prize - ???
  • Third Place Prize - ??
  • Drawing Prize - ??

WHEN IS THE CONTEST TAKING PLACE?

The contest will be taking place for the whole month of October. There will be a final tally of points on November 1, and winners will be contact/announced by November 5th at the latest.

WHERE DO WE SUBMIT ENTRIES/REPORT ENTRIES?

For the sake of keeping things neat and tidy, please submit all entries to TextsfromAgartha — even the entries that aren’t a text submission (I’ll explain this later). Any entry sent or reported to HelloSweetling or any of R’s side blogs will be ignored and will not be counted.

HOW DO YOU WIN/HOW DO YOU ENTER/HOW DO YOU GAIN POINTS?

This contest is going to be a little strange in that you can win either by achievement or by pure chance. The first through third-place prizes will be awarded to the individuals who have the most amount of points (more on what earns you points/point worth later). Each point you gain also gains you an entry into a random drawing. All totals and tallies will be completed on November 1st (likely at 12 AM PST Because R doesn’t seem to like sleep)  and all winning parties will be informed and announced prior to November 5th.

In order to make things a bit diverse and fun, I’ve decided to award points to various activities around TFA or TSW. One point is equal to one entry, and there are definitely going to be some activities that yield a higher point count.

The current Activities List:

  • A TFA submission featuring Jack O’ Lantern - 20 Pts
  • A TFA submission featuring your own TSW art - 15 Pts
  • A TFA submission with Andy’s Kittens - 10 Pts
  • Suggest an Activity (and have it make the list) - 5 Pts
  • A TFA Submission featuring a Faction Contact (Geary/Sonnac/Bong Cha/The Child) - 5 Pts
  • Submit an entry to a TFA Weekend Challenge (The current one counts starting Oct 1st.) - 5 Pts
  • A TFA Submission - 3 Pts
  • In-Game Staff Spotting - 2 Pts. I’ll announce on My Personal Tumblr when I’ll be on, my general zone (London, Kingsmouth Town, etc) and what characters I’ll be using for that instance an hour prior (time willing) to getting onto TSW. This is so that people can find their way onto the appropriate server/request a teleport, etc. I would like a Tell message as well as a screenshot submission of our characters to TFA. I won’t publish the submission, but I will send an ask to your tumblr account to confirm that it counts.
  • Reblogging this post (these count as soon as the post goes live, but likes don’t count) - 1 Pt

MY ONE MAJOR RULE: Don’t whine/pester/badger/ me because you don’t like the reward amount/think the contest is too hard/etc. This is meant to be a contest to celebrate my favorite MMORPG and to get TSW fans interacting/networking over silly, drunk-text versions of the lore/characters/player characters.. I’m mostly doing this for fun, and I’m figuring any prize — even if it’s not like…75 dollars worth of points (ahahahaha oh lord excuse theoretical me while she listens to her wallet cry) — is still more than what you theoretically had.

Basically, don’t be a filthy butthead, and don’t whine if you don’t win. I love TSW fandom dearly — y’all are such wonderful people, I swear —  so I don’t see this being a problem, but if it becomes a problem I will have no qualms about shutting down the contest entirely.

All that said, feel free to ask questions! This contest goes live Oct. 1st (PST), but any reblogs from September 30 (again PST) will also count towards your points.

- R

HEY THIS IS LIVE! SUBMIT!

The factions are not good guys.  There are some good guys in this game, I think, but the factions are not them.

To be honest I doubt even Gaia is wholly benevolent, either.   Which is the really creepy part, because then we can’t really trust anyone.  

You can trust me.

You can trust Mato to be untrustworthy.

Unintentional all-Lumi raid is best raid.

Do you form victory pyramid when you finish the raid?

When they FINISHED? That’s how we FIGHT, Mato.

That’s cool, easier to get you with AoE attacks.
