For maximizing dmg, u have no choice but to make castanic , crit from behind is to much of a deal in this game to pass. Porblem is.. im sick of being these stupid horny scrawny flailing running nancies.
Normalize racials.. so atleast we have a choice as a dps.
Ugh... really? Min-maxers ruin games.
No, you don't need that 1% crit. It's basically ignorable once you start getting decent gear. Play whatever race you would like to.
Differences in the range, movement and collision boxes of attack animations are more significant than the minor official racials.
Unless you were about to roll sorc.
I'm in love with you, Lifelike.
No, really min maxxers ruin games, because you cannot see the forest for the trees. I've made this argument before, but if two sorcerors can both kill a mob with 4 attacks, does it really matter that one had that extra teeny tiny bit of damage? In most situations that teeny tiny bit of damage makes absolutely zero difference. You are talking the difference between a regular hardcore player, and a min maxxer. A regular hardcore picks their character based on what they've like, runs the game for 5 hours plus a day, and enchants things, but ignores the tiny bit of damage extra they get for being a Catanic. A min maxxer always rolls Castanic then makes 50 posts on the forums whining about how they dislike the look of them.
If you want to talk real min maxing dps mechanics over time, and that 1% extra damage that a min maxxer does which actually equates to .1% in reality because in most situations that extra 1% makes no difference to the amount of attacks mobs take to die, let's look at it this way. I have a job. Most min maxxers do not. Thusly, I am at a massive disadvantage for DoT because half the day I'm not playing.
Should I quit my job?
There was a notorious min maxxer on the last game I played. A transsexual, so I'm going to say she, though the whole community referred to the player as "he". Now, I didn't like this person and railed at them citing my argument of how many attacks mobs yield to often, while having raging tantrum sessions on the forums with the min maxxer. I myself got hooked too much on mechanics and my case for why tiny extra damage usually does not make any difference.
She played a sorceror type because the community had realized that a female elf sorc did the highest dps in the game. All day long, railing at imbalance, she played the class most maligned for its imbalance, because dps was of course he most important thing.
So the inevitable happens, the game gets a heavy update, sorcs get nerfed and now the best character to play is a male beast berserker.
She rolls a female beast berserker, because you can't possibly play as a MAN, then spends forever arguing with people that a 3% loss in attack power prior to equipping weapons made no difference.
I looked up my old enemy recently to see if I could expect the same arguments on the sequel to the game, and find they are gone. The community has had correspondence from a fellow trans player, that she died from a heart attack. How true that is I don't know.
But remember, life is too short, you waste it on spurious details, and just because somebody who spends all their time on the game is not a min maxxer, that does not make them casual. Things are not that black and white.
