one thing I haven't done yet is a raid... min 8 players recommended. I don't know that many people online at that same time... would be great to tempt it one day.
Yeah, raids definitely sound interesting, that's for sure. Of course, some of us would have to be a little more careful with aim - there are reasons why I don't use the artillery turret much, despite it being rather useful *whistles innocently*
....Yup, that's right, I've blown myself up a few times thanks to a mouse twitch.
When it hits enemies though... Oh gawds, it's gorgeous. Doubly so if you're evil and fire a grenade AND launch a grenade in there JUST to be certain they all die....
I like my assault turret though alongside the striker drone. Lotsa bullets going their way!
Edit: or alternatively, nothing quite says I love you like looking over at your hubby and going "can I get a rez?" about half a second after you say "oops."
Oh that's funny shit.... next time I'll have to creep your gear and see what you got... wait., that didn't come out the way I meant...
Right now my gear is mostly hodge-podge of what I can get my paws on, and a slow attempt at building towards a Wyvern + Arialdi set, but lately I've started debating about whether or not I truly want those two 3pc bonuses or not, and have started switching it up.
I think drone skill power is somewhere around 4.1k, and turret 3.5k ish. I usually do well with survivability, and I've been slowly pushing towards 15% or so crit chance which is rather handy. Really really happy with several of my talents/perks though, because larger explosion radiuses are nice - well, if you ignore the stupid challenges for that new class anyways... So stupid it must be TWO, AND ONLY TWO your grenade kills... Not five. Not six, nope, two.
But man do I love those frag grenades, making my enemies bleed. Pairs nicely with inferno rounds too... Or shock.
A demolitions guy who uses a marksman rifle as their main, eh. World dun end. That and it's nice to have that, then close with an assault rifle...
Clan Invite sent, I found a +47% Damage to Elites tonight, it's on my mask. Can't wait to see what that does to them.. I had the +35%... I was already able to cut them up pretty good before that... an added 12% will be killer...
at Lvl500, re-calibrating is key. after a bit of time and a near full bag of gear, head to the re-calibration station and check each of your components for possible upgrades. I do like how they updated that, gives you a pretty good idea is the upgrade is worth it or not. Though I do wonder about some of them as improvements... like my +14.5% Armour upgrade... then See just 25,000 Armour showing as an improvement... I'm at near 300k Armour... so that 14.5% is much more than 25k... so those I wonder about...

Wow, getting a 2nd profile player geared up from the 1st is easy.. I have a secondary profile with a WT1 class player and he's already at 500 gear score, I have him setup as a high skill player, 3400+ skill power. just need to build up on health and armor and this profile will be mint. still have a few more WT's to go through, hope to level him up as I go.
zila1: If you liked that mouse that much another type or brand may not suit you. If you can find another one, I would get it. Maybe two more if you can swing it and put one away.

ShrimpBrime: Any suggestions, or should I just get another of the same mouse? I did get a lot of years from it....
Aug 7, 2022 17:51:51 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I dislike my new mouse. Need suggestions. Was spoiled for a long time with a Razor mamba tournament edition. The mouse wheel has 4 buttons on it's own, I liked the side to side page scroll feature it had. The lazer wigz out occasionally.

antinomy: So if you lack of sex, VIA's here to help you
Aug 6, 2022 18:15:01 GMT -5
antinomy: Nano has twice performance for same clocks against the older C7. But compatibility is a bitch. Bench(f**n)mate won't run on it, W10 didn't run too (maybe there is some build that will), some benchmarks are finicky about VIAs.
Aug 6, 2022 18:14:45 GMT -5
antinomy: The architecture has changed a few times. C3 is like the stone age. Superseeded by C7. Don't remember about IPC but the bus changed from P6 arch (Pentium 2/3) to quad-pumped (Pentium 4/Core2). Then it has been replaced by Isaiah architecture (VIA Nano).
Aug 6, 2022 18:12:45 GMT -5
austin86: yeah the c3 was a slow chip, some of the zhaoxin CPUs use VIA architecture too.
Aug 4, 2022 11:28:46 GMT -5
Macsbeach98: And dont go much better either
Aug 3, 2022 16:34:57 GMT -5
Mr.Scott: I have a few VIA's. Not much different than PIII's.
Aug 3, 2022 15:21:08 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: No, haven't gotten into VIA processors actually. Figure try and recoup the spending on the board even though I really like it.
Aug 3, 2022 10:56:14 GMT -5
austin86: Have you ever played with VIA CPUs? they have some very low TDP. many are sub 20w
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:33 GMT -5
austin86: Cool idea. the b660 is a good chipset albeit a little simple. I do have a Asus csm board so my experience could be gimped.
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:06 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Try to build a sub 100w system. Then maybe sell it. Just a thought at this point. Bit have a B660-I it would work perfect with.

austin86: I almost got one of the faster Pentium's, what will you be using it for?
Aug 2, 2022 9:05:30 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I was thinking of building with a celeron or Pentium gold. Like 59 bucks for a dual core lga 1700
Aug 1, 2022 20:25:13 GMT -5
austin86: I got my 12100f on ebay for about 96 dolors before tax/shipping. its a lot of CPU for the price
Aug 1, 2022 8:09:56 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Celeron and Petium gold are both under 100 bucks. 12th gen.

george: my workshop 5600G been really rock solid, not one hick-up so far, pulls good. wife's old i3 still pulls good also, though I do not have experience of the newer i3's though.
Jul 31, 2022 20:01:19 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: the kids 1st and 2nd get chips to 5000 series. APU for my Daughter I think and 5600X for my youngest son.
