Ow thought you where from cat. and Emp did not get jacked, our alies took off during the weakly change, last time I checked. (might be wrong, the leaders don't tell me evryting -^-) I was gonna say that you would like Amatz because you spend so much time there, since Emp and its ally stayd in charge of hzh so long.Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 13:53, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
CAT dropped further than Amatz, last I checked, I lol'd so hard when I heard they were in "Joely B"'s alliance. But EMP did get jacked 'cos CAT stole them off of EMP -- Elisa Angelstine sig.png 13:54, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
I was online 5 min ago, and we are in a ally with 3 other guilds, and we seam to be in charge. And CAT stole our ally? Is that waht you mean? Then we did get jacked. BIG TIME!!!!Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 13:57, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

drop research[edit source]

Good job! --◄mendel► 17:20, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

I dont really see why it should be a good job, but I'll say tnx anyway. Thanks! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:46, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Because you found stuff out that no-one else had the stamina to do. Of course it'd be a better job if you also copied the data to Talk:Raptor or made a Drop rate article for them. Actually, I wonder why we don't have any Farming guides on Raptor farming yet. --◄mendel► 10:34, 30 October 2008 (UTC).
I cant do a droprate article, because I kill rekoff to. And then I would have to split the drop research into 2, wich would take way more time, and force me to start over.

And I'm not sure wether I'm actully gonna make it. And farming them is so easy, there is no need to make a farming guide for them, unless you wanna search the pvx wiki for all the builds that are used to kill the raptors (with or without rekoff). And I was gonna put the data on their page, but when I'm finished, adn you will also find my results on the drop rate/ loot talk page.

I'm just not finished yet. And if you will excuse me now, I need to kill some raptors. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:26, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

It was just a suggestion in italics. Don't take that too seriously. ;-) --◄mendel► 22:47, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm not taking it too seriously. I'm just explaing why I didn't do it. And BTW, some1 needs to clear up the farming guides, because those dye farms just just plain noncense. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 12:26, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
That observation about the dye farms is not new, but noone wants to do the work. If it's enough nonsense, maybe it would be better to delete them outright? --◄mendel► 17:37, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I've tried improving the bonding guide and the aggro guide... it's just so tedious. Silver Sunlight SSunlight.jpg 17:56, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
those are other guides right? Not farming guides? And yes I think they contain so much noncense I think it is justified to delete them. but then, I cant delete them, as I am not an admin. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 18:59, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Put {{delete|too much nonsense to justify keeping}} at the top of the article in question (feel free to adjust the reason as necessary) and one of our good admins will take care of it — that's what usually works for me. --◄mendel► 08:26, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

I've read your writeups on your userpage and on Talk:Loot, and they're excellent. I hope you still like chicken [1][2]. --◄mendel► 08:02, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I was getting afraid that nobody would comment or show any kind of interrest. But thank you. I hope to make a real droprate articel sometime, but I don't think thats possible. (Its not 1 kind of enemy you kill while farming the raptor cave)but I'll do a "Peace Time" droprate research, someday, after my assa gets her hands on some skills to make the farm a tiny bit faster.
And yes I stil like chicken (on my plate anyway). But I am gonna turn of the sound when I farm these, thats for sure! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 12:08, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Promotion Party[edit source]

You asked for farming suggestions...[edit source]

Req's: E/Me, 16 Earth, 12 Inspiration, Any weapon of Enchanting 20%, skill cast/recharge improvement helps, Geomancer's Armor. Must have completed Jora's Homestead to spawn all 60 Vaettir.

Mantra of Earth.jpg Stoneflesh Aura.jpg Glyph of Swiftness.jpg Obsidian Flesh.jpg Radiation Field.jpg Light of Deldrimor.jpg Crystal Wave.jpg Teinai's Crystals.jpg

My ranks are 4 Asura and 3 Deldrimor, nothing fancy. Keep up #1,2,4 at all times - recharge will be just enough to maintain both, use Glyph only on Elite. Cast damage on recharge. Grouping them without getting stuck early is the only semi-hard part of this. Some people use vanguard Honor and Sliver instead of #5 and #6, but my version kills faster overall, since the AoE ends up finishing them off anyway. Any other AoE makes them scatter, so don't bother.

Start in Longeye's Ledge and go into Bjora Marches. You can run straight all the way to the portal of Jaga Moraine without fighting a single monster. Oh yeah, make sure you're in HM. If you pop a wurm, cast Stoneflesh Aura and keep running, you'll be fine. Zone into Jaga, take blessing, kill the Vaettir in 2 groups (group all to the north of res shrine, kill, do the same in the south). One zone takes about 4 minutes perfect, 6 if you fuck up and get stuck, having to split into 3 groups instead of just 2. Rezone, repeat until full of gold items (about 30% of all weapon drops O_O even after overfarming for days on end), Mesmer Tomes, lots of holiday loot (15% drop per kill, about), some Lockpicks, some dyes, and of course, Glacial Stones (I sell 8-9k per 100). Raw merch profit with 40 open inv slots: about 3-4k on average in a full run. Plus you may get some good golds that you may sell for more than merch. LOTS OF DAGGERS O_O among other stuff. I'm watching my Wisdom title move along quite nicely. If you want to see a practice run, contact my Ele "Crystal Firefly." RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 21:52, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I guess you can use your brother's char, or maybe you'll want to make an ele, cus you know, they're awesome. :) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 21:57, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for all your trouble! I'll look into it. I have just 1 objection, I meant farming collectables, wich you can trade in (for sure) for winterfest items. (I did some research, and the easiest farm for me was the undead in Kates of Kryta, with my assa) I read the sentance again, and I realize it wasn't clear (enough). I do have 1 question before I make new armor for the ele, is this a better place to farm then the raptor cave? Otherwise I'll stick with the raptors. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 14:30, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
From my experience, this seems like a faster way to farm gold items. I've leeched off of raptor farmers before, and I have rarely seen a good drop on a run. And the green is worthless, too. I've also seen some perma-sins in Longeye's, so they may be able to do Vaettir too, but I'm not sure. Vaettir farm does exhaust itself, so it may be good to alternate between the two. This is also the place I farm holiday drops. Got 4.5 stacks of pie/cider with some casual farming last week. I've noticed that charr carvings drop quite abundantly in Pre, I have a stack waiting for contraband just after a handful of hours. Farming Eyes outside of Serenity is also not bad, you get a Spiked Nog for each eye. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 19:23, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Most Vaettir farmers use kegs if they're out for holiday items. Other than that: Agreed. Raptors suck. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 19:28, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
How nice. Thank you for your tips 'n tricks. Raptors aint useless, but there might be better ways. How casual is casual? An hour per day? In that case Vaettir ARE a better farm. I farmed for far more than 1 hour, (say 5) and I got half a stack of pie, and the same for the alcohol.
I don't have more carecter slots, so no more pre-searing for me. And I'll check out the Serenity farm. And kegs? You mean kegs as in Powder Kegs? Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:41, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
I've heard of people using those Powder Kegs (From Budgen Blackpowder or whatever his f*ing name is) for Vaettir, but don't know how exactly and never bothered. I farmed Vaettir maybe like 3 hrs a day tops. 2 Stacks of pie, 2 stacks of cider, and some odds of each, about 150 more total. In the end, they hardly dropped anything else from exhaustion, but I think holiday drops are exempt. :P Soon I'm gonna go farm those eyes for Spiked Nog. Much better return than Charr Carvings, imho. 1 eye = 3 minutes of booze, 3 carvings = 1 minute... RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 22:06, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

so i herd Disease is rly effective vs non-fleshy foes Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 02:53, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

-5 degen with quick recharge still helps for a lack of other AoE that doesn't scatter them. I guess you can take Arcane Echo instead. :/ RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 04:44, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
I'm not getting it? Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 10:40, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
To use the powder kegs - grab your permasin, start in sifhalla, walk out into drakkar lake, grab Budger, then run through norhart domains, bjora marches, and then into jaga moraine, then all you have to do is go gather a bunch of vaettir together around you, select Budger, and start spamming spacebar + y (drop item) as fast as possible. They quite literally explode and are all dead in ~8 seconds, since each keg does 34 armor-ignoring AoE damage, burning, and knockdown, and you can easily drop 10+ every second. The game actually starts lagging because you have so many numbers flying around. And they won't (or, more accurately, can't) scatter because they're constantly knocked down, and once they start taking damage they die in about 2 seconds anyways. You also get a decent number of norn points too, considering how fast you can kill these guys. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 12:21, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
So, you have to run that far every time? RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 19:24, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Once, just like e/me grinding. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 19:30, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Doh! >_<' I meant like once you have to leave to sell stuff, you gotta run all the way again to get Budger and can't start at Longeye's? I assume so. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 20:17, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

So plz keep the email coming! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:31, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

The keg farm seems to work fine for me. It's just that its a f*cking end to get the run started, but this way I won't have to buy new armor for the ele, and I can still farm norn points for my assa. Thank you all! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 13:57, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Wts maths[edit source]

Catch me on irc (or make a date) to get tutored in maths. I actually enjoy that subject. --◄mendel► 17:22, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

As in, I don't have irc, and I already f*cked up my test, but thanks for the offer. (the test was about Voronoy diagrams and unreal numbers, we call i (the square root of -1)) I didn't mean to sound like a whiner, but I needed a place to throw out some of my anger, and this is in my oppinion the best place for that. I don't piss off people if i start whining about my teacher, and about maths in general. But it's so frustrating, I haven't had a decent grade for mtahs in like, 2 and a half years. And I work really hard for that, and it just won't work. I thinks its a mental thing though. Also, what are you doing that you like math so much?
Don't take me wrong, your offer means a lot to me (some "stranger" offering help), but, hard to explain. I want to focus on my chemestry and on my physics, so I don't fail those too. Screw math, I'll make up for it at the central exams. (I've been to math-trainings already, and those cover the basics for math, wich is the stuff you get at the central (national) exams).
If you bothered to read through to the end, thank you for that. Now, Wtb tissue and sleep. ;-( /  ;-) Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 19:57, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, chemistry and physics use a lot of direct math, and math-related concepts. But I know what you mean about the mental block, my husband's sister has one of those, probably much worse than yours. If you can pull off chem and physics, then your block is just on the fact that you are doing a math problem. This may be related to having a bad teacher when you started. When you get a chance, try to find a friendly tutor, don't be afraid to ask "stupid" questions, and you'll be amazed how fast it will all start to click. I had a similar "revelation" in my communications class (the one with sine waves and radio transmitters crapola... worse than any calculus EVAR). RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 04:29, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm a very friendly tutor, except it is harder to tutor via the net. Some help on getting irc is at GW:IRC, ask if you need more. I like maths a lot because I usually succeed at it, it's like playing a game and winning most of the time, whereas losing for 2.5 years would probably have made me hate it as well. The numbers aren't unreal, they are imaginary. These are quite advanced subjects, it strikes me that I don't know what country you live in. Hmm. There are points in one's mathematical career where you have to change your direction of thinking, for me that was most pronounced when moving from school to university. If you've missed this kind of change and your teacher can't explain it, getting a good tutor could at least make you aware of what you should've been learning two years ago? If you're good with sciences there's going to be mathematical thinking in your future (and even if you aren't, it helps, but then I would say that). Ultimately, it's your life and your decision, so I can't be offended if you do what you think is best for you. :-) --◄mendel► 06:26, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
I live in the Netherlands. I'm in 6 VWO, wich is the same I thinks as the final year of the English A-levels. And yes the numbers are imaginary, not unreal. I had theese subjects because "the are deemed good for my futhur school career" (litteral translation). I was supposed to have my revaltion/direction of thinking change last year. I'm smart, but not really compared to some of my classmates, some of wich don't have to shit to get a 6, while I have to work for a grade like that. (a 6 is a minium required to pass). And I've had friendly tutors, and some made things click, but it just goes in one ear, and out the other, somehow. I can think mathematical, but I can't seem to pass my math tests. And thank you both for your help and support. :-) Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:58, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Just to let you know, you can use {{clear}} instead of numerous break tags after a userbox. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:40, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't understand. Why does being lazy put me off the idea, which is simpler / eaiser / takes less effort? Anyway, thanx -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 18:54, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
Cool, thank you, this one is even nicer. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 21:22, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
No problem, however (sorry to disturb you yet again) Mendel had an idea. If you wish to have your userbox automatically updated to my latest idea, you can use {{User:Suicidal Tendencie/mendel userbox}} instead. However, you of course don't have to change the coding. Thanx again for displaying the userbox :-) -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 19:20, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
I'll keep up to date anyway, so I'll keep this one till I think you made an even better one. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 20:21, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Para armor?[edit source]

What's the hottest armor for a female para? I can't make up my mind, and mixes are allowed, just as elite (infact, I think mixes rule). Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:23, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Monument/Elonian chest, Monument gloves, Elonian leggings, Monument boots. That's my personal preference. Headgear...well...no one shows the regalia anyway, so use whatever. Blindfolds are always hilarious, though. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 15:26, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I'll look into it. Thank you. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:29, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Uuuhm, Entropy, what is your defenition of hot? Mine would be to either wear as little as possible, or to show as much cleavelidge (wrong spelling I know) 'n stuff. The set you mention is nice, (the gloves are beutifull, but I like the wrappings better, and idk about the boots) but it does not match my defenition of hot. Personal taste I guess. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:42, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I draw the line somewhere between "hot" and "slutty/whoresuit" I guess :( (which makes 75% of the armors in the game instantly terrible to me, sadly) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 16:01, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Whats the most "slutty/whoresuit" para armor in the game then, in your ever respected opinion? Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:07, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Definitely Elite Sunspear for the cleavage, although Elonian is my favorite. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:34, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I feel you ismeal, but it's not really the cleavage I meant (I'm demanding, I know). Though I really like the boots. They go on the list. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:38, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Go check it out? My personal favs are Obsidian and Norn (I have Norn myself, dyed Black, Serrated Spear and a Destry Shield as equipment. Imho, it's awesome). Primeval also looks quite kickass. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 16:44, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Viper, I apprecite your trouble, but those pictures aren't really big, and they aint helping much, if your looking to make a whole new set. I did that for my warrior, and it took ages. That is why I asked all off you wiki veterans to help me out. And I must say, it is more help then I expected. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 17:20, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

I still like Elonian better than most Elites, but someday when I have nothing else to spend the cash on, I'm going with Vabbian. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:36, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Necro armor?[edit source]

What's the hottest armor for a female Necro? I have no idea, and I would like to know. Also, mixes are allowed. Just as elite armor. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:23, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Cultist's/Monument, hands down. Everything else is far too exotic/kinky/decomposed for my tastes. :\ Also, depending on the hairstyle, scar patterns may or may not be visible; so you may want to look into Spectacles or something. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 15:26, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, I made the necro to look like a vampire with a touch of cat, and I like strange things, but I'll check it out. Thanks. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:29, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I thank you for your advice, but I'll take something different. The sets you mention are (in my oppinion) kinda boring. I think I'll talk to the Necro Armor Queen Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:45, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Ah well, if I'd known what you had in mind...I'd check out Bonelace for starters. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 16:01, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
What is Bonelace? There is no armor set with that name. I do know of a bonelace insignia. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:06, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
D'oh! I'm old-fashioned. :( This is now called Cabal Armor. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 16:08, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Lol, you can't me much older then I am... You're just playing the game longer. And, a mix of both could be very intteresting. Í just might bother Kali for a preview. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:13, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to bother any time I'm online. I personally wear my Obby, wanted it since the first time I saw it, and got it after months of painstakingly saving cash 1k at a time back when I was still a nooblet. Slim specs look rather sexy with it. And now I dyed it 2xpurple+brown to match my Tormy weapons. (Yes, the focus still clips the spike into the leg.) Keep in mind, Necro Obby does NOT go with chaos gloves or any other mixed gloves at all for the female, in case you were ever planning to mix something in. Cheaper versions that I still enjoy are Elite Canthan, Elite Kurzick and Asuran dyed pink. My favorite scar is still Elite Canthan (besides the specs) and I dyed it a nice "fake" black to keep the eyeballs white. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:34, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Obby armor sexy? Like, spikes sticking out of the flesh. Not really hot in my oppinion. And I have no problem with paying 75K+ for a nice looking armor set, but getting obsi is kinda too much. It took me ages to get all the ecto's for my warrior. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:49, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, actually, they are not sticking "out of the flesh" for the female. The hose designs provide a support base. ;) But also this is my favorite simply because of the lack of other good armor. The ones that I mentioned before are ok, and maybe also Elite Necrotic, I like the boots in that, but you must get the skirt to complete them. Ancient could have been good if it wasn't for the fufufugly skirt and the veins, I like the spikes on it, looks intimidating. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:50, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Old and random Necro armor? quote[edit source]

Entropy: "... you may want to look into Spectacles..."

hehe, funny :P -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 14:53, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm not getting it. Why would that be so funny? Its another quote horribly ripped out of its context. Hey, maybe I should start a quote section myself... Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:04, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
You don't get it? Hm... do you know what specs are generally used for IRL? -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 16:48, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, to hide blue (black) eyes, to look cool, to remain anonimous. But if you are suggesting the first option, no. My necro actually looks nice. I made her that way. See a section up. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:51, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Answer of the day[edit source]

Probably not. That's the only way people can move things without using two PCs, Gwx2, other hax, and so forth. If they are guildies etc. then that ought to be completely safe... Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 12:50, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

That's what I said. A ally mate claimed he got banned once (for holding 200K worth of goods), and woulnd trade anywhere else but in the GH(?). I didn't understand him completly, as his english wasn't very good, (and my german is much worse) but he somehow got banned once for ferrying.
I can't seem to get Gwx2 to work, and I don't have GW installed anywhere else, so I'm forced to use another person. I have done this before, but now I still need to ferry my goods. Darn.
Entropy, thank you for the answer. It's the answer I wanted to hear ;). Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:26, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Here I asked about nearly the exact same thing in #8, and so far Gaile said that #8 is fine, and that she'll research the other questions. If you can use 2 PCs to transfer things, I don't see why you can't use a "middle man" to do the same. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:21, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I don't know what this convo refers to (link?), but I strongly recommend taking screenshots of all transaction concerning these moves. Any transactions without collateral (i.e. anything that isn't a "real" trade) has a chance to trigger some built-in RMT detection mechanism, and you might need to be able to document what happened to get yourself unbanned. --◄mendel► 00:02, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
See Arnout's userpage, "Question of the Day". I also think that is unnecessary (of course you can never be too careful), I frequently trade items between my mules without "collatoral". The only time it is a problem is if you are trading pure money with nothing in return, or so the rumours go. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:07, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Userpage? :> 111 --10.8.2.70 00:08, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I had my answer, so I changed to something else which was on my mind. Thank you all for answering, and providing useable comments. Entropy, I asked my ally m8, and he said he was ferrying 200K and got banned, so you might be right. The point is, I only ferry goods (z-keys mostly), and seldom cash. Today would be the only day I would do that, because, empty accounts are empty, and thus contain very little cash. Mendel, I never took screens of ferrying, so I'm not going to do that, but thank you for the advice. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 14:09, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Cannibalism is BS[edit source]

Well, check out wikipedia:Armin Meiwes and be surprised. --◄mendel► 20:52, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I had him in mind when I wrote that. Also, he is now serving a life penalty, so I stand at my point; Cannabalism is BS. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 11:08, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
As opposed to which other crimes? --◄mendel► 22:16, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Dammit... >_< You guys gave me nightmares! Grr... RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 06:52, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
The moment you saw cannibalsm, you should have quit reading, Rose.
Mendel, murder/man slaughter is much more easy to get away with then modern cannibalism. It's just planning ahead and observing, and then committing a murder no one could ever solve, not even with luck and hard work (which you see in CSI). Remember, only half of the murder cases are ever solved, and with other violence based crimes (assault, rape...) that ratio is even lower. It's very simple; don't leave a trace, have a alibi, minimize the amount of accomplices, don't have motive, and the best of them all, don't have a connection to the victim. With modern cannibalism, it's very hard to fulfil the above. Although if you do it right, there is no way they can find the corpse ;-).
But I think, Mendel, you misunderstood me. I meant that practicing cannibalism in modern society is BS, because it's so hard to get away with. I responded to F1, who said that you would eat anyone you could get close too. Not only is cannibalism completely and utterly disgusting, it is a very bad way of killing someone. I wasn't suggesting it does not happen, I was saying that is is a very bad thing to do if you want to get away with murder. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 11:12, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
How do you know how many people get away with it? Think about it: if you were a cannibal, whom would you most like to eat? Tender, muscular children, preferably girls, for the extra erotic thrill. Now think about how many kids disappear each year with no trace ever found. Chilling, isn't it? --◄mendel► 19:20, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Simple. These are called statisticks. They are hard to find, (cause they dont want you to know the police actually suck at their work) but they have to be published. And cannibals usually eat anyone, they do not care for the age/gender. What you are talking about is the stereotype sexual predator. And most of those children who dissapear are not eaten, not by humans atleast. It's not hard to make a body dissapear completly.
I hope I answered your question, because I didn't completly understand it. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:58, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Acer Aspire[edit source]

Decent machine for the money, but you need to figure out what you will use it for. If you just do school work and play non-intense games like GW, you're fine, but any shooters or faster frame rate games may have delay and be hard to play (i.e. sniping will be laggy, Crysis in virtually unplayable, other shooters will compromise on higher settings).

1280x800 screen is kind of low end resolution for my taste, but may be good on a smaller screen like that. 2.0GHz is decent, but you can get a little faster without digging into high-end stuff. 5400RPM HDD is ok. 4GB DDR2 RAM is good.

GPU is mostly average, 1GB is not uncommon now, and it won't do well with DirectX10 effects according to online reviews. It may also overheat on intense games. This is the weakest point of this laptop if you're considering gaming, especially for the years to come, when DirectX10 becomes more common.

Everything else looks good. I'm also seeing some different specs on it depending on where you get it (Italy had a GeForce 7000, Netherlands had 2GB RAM), so make sure you get what you think it is. Basically, it looks like a great deal for the money ($700USD), as long as it meets your needs. It's not a great "gaming" machine, but is pretty nice otherwise. Last note: if you're seeing slow performance on Vista, especially on startup and initiating programs, uninstall any and all software that you will never use that's preloaded, as a lot of it runs in the background without you even knowing (had quite a bit on mine). Especially if it has Norton: you need to download a special Norton removal tool online - it's a P.O.S. and a resource hog. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:22, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

2.0Ghz.. Ah, the good ol' days ;o
Even high-end GPUs like nVidia's 280 and ATI's 4870 have 512MB. It's highly unlikely you'll need more, anyhow.
Also, if I were you, I'd stick with XP and switch to 7 if you can be bothered; much less hassle. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 18:31, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
I was pretty much allergic to the word Vista after just trying it randomly here and there. But I've come to like it once I customized it the way I want and figured out where everything is that's different from XP. It's really not bad. And the main gripe about the GPU is not the memory, but the fact that it's still pretty much last-gen, it's too weak to run much of the newer stuff well. There's no fun in running a good game at 30 frames per second with most of the graphical effects turned off. My 2.26 GHz 4GB RAM runs 64-bit Vista beautifully, though I do have a 1GB GeForce 9800M GTS. Staring at an empty wall, I get 270fps on Guild Wars, and around 130fps normal play. :D Anyway, it's not a gaming laptop, but it's a great little machine for the money, and it will still run GW1 nicely. Dunno about GW2, I think they're doing it in DirectX10. So it comes down to whether he plans to play FPS games on this or not. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 18:52, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
I have Vista Ultimate myself. It indeed isn't too bad, but XP has less fits :P
Heh, I recall that scenario from my old computer... Couldn't even play GW on high (Medium with ~40.. ). Having a strong CPU/GPU setup is very onvenient, so to say.
GW2 will most likely run on DX9 and 10. They aim for the average gamer; I think DX10 won't be average then. Meh, we'll see. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 19:14, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
They might, in fact, do it in both. But then there would be no point in DX10 over DX9 alone if they don't use its extra capabilities, so there will probably be effects and features that work or reach their full "beauty" in DX10 only. *shrug* RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 20:12, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Crysis did the same; DX10 Crysis has much prettier explosions <3 --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 20:14, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't play Crysis, but I've seen screenshots, and it indeed makes a difference. I've also played GW on dialup and 25fps for a while, and DSL/good hardware makes a huge difference. It's just much nicer to play the game at or near its full potential, as opposed to just making it run. Back to the Acer: it will play GW, most likely perfect (60fps+) at max settings, but it won't play much of anything else great, outside of online RPG's. The keyword there is great. And it will run something like Crysis, at minimal settings with 35fps in DX9. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 20:26, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Ok, to answer the questions; No I am not going to use it to play Crysis. I suck at playing shooters, and besides, I only want to play GW. It is not even going to me MY machine, but one for general use and as a backup, and to have three working machines in the house.
Besides, I'm going to university next year, and I'll get myself a High-end laptop out of their cheap laptop program. That will be used for playing GW2.
The resolution might be crappy, but we're gonna take some really high end photographs, and test them on that machine, to see what is left of it. As I said, I wont be used for heavy gaming, so the abcense of big powerzzz wont be missed. However, is the processor good (reliable?)? I have never used anything other then Intel proccesors. And to that extend, is the Graphics card reliable? I dont know much about that kind of stuff.
And thank you both for your opinions. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:19, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Processors are always reliable. In general, the only malfunction that occurs, to my knowledge, is overheating. If your CPU overheats, your motherboard will be fried, too, so there's nothing left besides the casing then. Unless you block off the vent (cloth, dust), this won't happen.
As for the GPU; I don't know to what extent you mean high-end photography? If you plan to view and edit massive/high quality pictures on something like PhotoSoup, it might be a little slow. That's all from the top of my head. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 11:29, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
When we go on hollidays, my dad likes to take pictures with his very powerfull camera, and vieuw them on that pc. I meant the screen with the high end photography. But about the GPU I meant is it know for its bugs, like the one Entropy suffers from? Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 12:01, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
If there is a store that has one of these on display, just take a flash drive with the picture and open it up on the PC, see how it looks. The monitor is of the newer gen, and should look pretty nice as far as colors and crispiness, etc. If you're just viewing the pictures, as is my impression, then there shouldn't be a problem, this isn't a midget net-book, but it may become annoying if you try to edit them in Photoshop and do any kind of fancy imaging work. For that, you're looking at ultra-high res monitors, which get expensive quick, and are generally not available on laptops anyway. Anymore there's no reason to worry about monitors on new PCs, they've gotten pretty good and cheap.
I haven't heard/read anything bad about the 8600 GPU, aside the DX10 weakness. Just make sure that you don't get a bunch of dust and lint in the vents, that's what semi-killed my old GPU - it was completely clogged when I took it out. It still works, but the fan makes horrible grinding noises and sometimes glitches out in Guild Wars and displays weird textures and planes that aren't supposed to be there. (Part of why I got my new sexy toy. XD) If you can open it up occasionally, take a Qtip and get the dust out of the heat dissipator and the fan. Somehow all the dust managed to stick to mine and didn't come off just from blowing at it, had to be physically dislodged first, it was quite disgusting.
The processor should be fine, as Viper said, make sure the vents are clear. If the laptop starts to feel hot under your hands, something is wrong. Once this happened to me because I put it on my glass-top desk, but a piece of paper got sucked up and stuck to the vent underneath, so make sure there's absolutely nothing between the vents and a nice solid flat surface, paper is as bad as a fuzzy pillow.

OK, I could use some suggestions.[edit source]

OK, I got this Paragon (cause the are the most handsome proffesion in my eyes, although this is very nice too. I asked for armor opinons a few scrolls up. I intended to make her my survivor, and I took her through a lot of trouble already. I got her to lvl 10 in Istan, went to GW:EN, got some heroes, went back, leveled her in such a way I could get her to Kryta. Got her Ascended in the Augury Rock mission (I fought through all the missions on the way there), changed her secondary to assasin, and talked to some drunk dwarf out on a limb. But by that time I had read that boxing was actually very dangerous (or so some1 claimed) and that you where better off raiding worms outside Boreal Station, using elementalist skills. And Paragons aint really know for their fireball throwing skills. So, here I am, asking for tips/suggestions on something. I hope you can help.

(ec) Yes is does. You want as much speed as you can get your hands on. That way it takes much less time. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:35, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Five sup runes, Burning Refrain, Soldier's Fury, Can't Touch This, Barbed Spear, Merciless Spear, Spear of Fury, Spear of Lightning, and uh......Dash or something. Entropy Entropy Sig 2.jpg (C) 09:44, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
5 sup runes? Why those? I want as much health as possible. (Its a survivor, remeber). Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 11:41, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
You will never get hit (unless you suddenly get in melee range for no reason at all), and low health makes Burning Refrain trigger much more. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 17:49, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
(ec) You're not getting attacked, though. Just don't get close to the Pinesouls at the end of the wurms. One melee attack from wurms did about 50 dmg to my 60AL ele if I happened to stand too close, so they're not very dangerous with full HP, but after only a couple runs I learned all the spawn points, so I knew where not to stand. Burning Refrain is meh, they don't have that much HP unless you go 55 HP yourself. Merciless, Barbed, Fury is good. Lightning is useless against their armor. Other good skills: Blazing Spear, Mighty Throw, Wearying Spear+Remedy Signet. Just get as much un-typed and degen damage as you can. Attacks with "deals +xx damage" are golden, as the +xx damage will not be reduced by their insane armor (as long as it's not +xx elemental armor, like lightning spear, THAT will get reduced). A Vamp Spear will help, for once, and will be great with Soldier's Fury and Can't Touch This! to maintain it. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 17:57, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Paras are awesome (says he who has an Ele as primary character). --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 15:19, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
All I can say is that you are linking the one armor set I like most in the game, which was good for me since it's cheap. I also think eles are the hottest class, but paras do give them a run for their money... never tried survivor, though, but my gut says squishy might not be the best choice for that road. (Of course, there's also earth magic to unsquishy an ele, so the point may be moot. And yes, as far as I'm concerned, unsquishy is a word, so :p) Nwash 15:37, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Go with the ele! (Main char is an ele, Gon used to be second...). If you feel like checking out some Paragon or Ele armor, hit me up and I can show you them (dye preview trick if you dont run off with my armor!). But personally I must say I am not a fan of the Istani set- maybe one of my most hated Ele set. If you go with a Paragon, Acnient Top, Vabbian leggings, Elite SS gloves and Elonian boots is hawt. Khazad Guard 15:47, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
I made another paragon, but I haven't made up my mind completly. Pros; I dont have a paragon, and I do have a well developed ele (although, he is male, and not very pretty). Also, have you ever seen a para naked? I revieuwed all the classed for a occassions, and their underwhear is by far the best. Cons; I like my ladies blond and white, and without paying you cant get para's real white. Although it will be more of a fuss to get the right ele looks. I dont really like the NF looks. In factions, you can't really go white, and prof is just way too much hassle. Choices, choices, choices. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 17:45, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
