Well yes, I DO realize this isn't Funcom, but the difference is people here actually listen once in a while! :wink: I suppose it was more of a rant than anything. Been rather p****d at FC for their lack of support too, but that's another story. ITD's might be decent, but a min dmg of 1 is a no-go in...

Mid-level Shade weapons

There seems to be a problem with shade weaponry: there are a few nice ones for low levels (Fear Forged Blades, Toothpickers), and some great endgame weapons (Lord/Lady of Deceit, MediBlades, Piercing Evil, etc). However, there is a HUGE HOLE from 100-150 where a SLoob has one of two choices: 1. Spen...

Thanks for finding that; i guess my search string wasnt good enough! Hmm, so if I understand this: Weapon - 1-375 (402) Hits would be: ((Min to Max) + Crit Bonus) x (1+ (AR/400))+Dmg Bonus Crits in this range would be (403 to 777) x (1+(647/400)+22)x AS Multiplier So max AS crit would be ((777 x 2.6...

Crit question

I know the whole damage formula for normal crits, but tonight my lvl 87 agent (untwinked, BTW) hit a mob for 10200 points of damage. While it was VERY cool, I've been trying to figure out how the game rolled that high of a crit. Please tell me what I'm missing: Weapon: Yatamutchy; damage 1-375 (402)...

It just takes away from the overall experience, IMO. Some classes are supposed to be stealthy (agent, shade, maybe MA), most melee weapons just have a "swoosh" sound when used, but a soldier's gun SHOULD have a sound! Everyone I chat with in-game is annoyed by the silent nature of this weapon, and i...

Neutrino Flash bug?

I've been playing my neut soldier lately, and recently got him a Neutrino Flash rifle from SoM. But something is wrong with it: thre is NO sound at all from the weapon. I talked to an ARK rep (helpful as always), who told me it's a known issue that hasn't been resolved. No one else I have talked to ...

need right QL :(

I just tried a QL44 notum frag on a QL22 Unstable Pres System, and it's a no go. Turns out I need to be in the QL "window" like most everything else, unfortunately. :cry: So I tried posting on the shopping channels, and helpbot brought up a link to the Atlantean Market page; the unfortunate thing is...

Shout Out!

Hey all, I discovered AO about two months ago, set up a few fr00b toons, and have been really enjoying the game. I'm usually a solo RPG/FPS gamer, so this is really the very first MMO I've played. I think I stayed away from MMOs because of all the stories I'd heard of jackasses constantly beating up...

I don't know if Tinkers just need a MINIMUM QL, or if anything higher will work; I haven't explored it yet. I suspect that using a much higher QL notum will be more of an IP sink than I'd like, but I don't know yet. I just handed off some higher QL notum to my ENG last night, but was having a blast ...

My engi's name is Solderblob, and he lives on the Atlantean server. At the moment he's looking for QL 25-ish notum to make Tinker pistols. In an ironic note, my FIX alt has been finding notum out the ears right after my original post! Since he's lvl 56, it's all been QL50+ though (I'm sure it will c...

Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions! Well, one problem with medusas is I have never seen one; not even my lvl 54 Fixer has seen one (and he's my highest), so I'm deducing that Medusas are off limits for now. :) I've tried killing tons of monsters on missions with all my toons, with no luck. I jus...

Where to get Notum Chips and/or Fragments?

Hey, I started a froob engineer just to see what it was like, and it's pretty fun. However, I'm trying to get parts to upgrade my solar pistols and I can't seem to get my hands on any notum chips or fragments (I have lots of pellets, though). Where can i get CHIPS or FRAGMENTS? Who or what do I kill...

Thanks! I KNEW it was something simple I missed!

I'm a fr00b lvl 26 Fixer, so the expansions will have to wait a bit.

The other thing I can't figure out is wtf the Global market Search Terminals are for. I put in searches and never get any results. I tried a perfect spelling of Mausser Particle Streamer, QL10-30, price to 200k and sat there for 10 min without any result. Do these actually work?

Newbie w. mission completion problem

New player, made 5 characters, and have had some problems figuring out something (probably) simple with Retrieval missions. How the hell do I finish these? Where am I supposed to bring the Item in question? I went out, killed everything, and have the item; I then went back to the EXACT Mission termi...
