Still around...

A few people were wondering what had happened to me, but I recently took a job offer a few hundred miles away. So starting two weeks ago, I spent about a week moving, and passing on my responsibilities at my previous job, while this last week I was working intensively on electrical, doors and cabinets, painting, patching and sanding my condo in preperation to sell it - its a shame to leave it after making it so nice.. lol. I lived in it as a fixer-upper and right before I sell it I finally get around to fixing it up. Anyhow, things have finally died down, I'm starting to settle into my new job, I've moved everything down here, and my condo is about to be put on the market - so I'll be around more often now. Just in case there were others that were wondering...

Good to see you again, and glad to hear things are going so well for you. Hard work is very rewarding -- as long as you don't hurt yourself in the process. Stop by any time; we're always glad to have you here.

Wibby!

gogo 1.11 MP!

Not sure if I'm gonna upgrade to 1.11. If all it did was fix the FE bug, I might... but blech... it seems to introduce more problems than it fixes. Plus, I really don't want to see my Fireball Templar neutered (the only synergy abuse I use). Anyhow... we'll see... Duress does look nice.

Good to have you back, Vajar. :)

On the topic of 1.11, the only reason not to make the switch, really, is if you have characters relying on the item skill synergies.

If not, you gain the FE fix and improved merc levels/levelling. (I don't really count the runewords since only Duress is worthwhile out of the 11 we now have access to).

So, I suppose the real question is: do you like melee characters? ;)

Since almost everyone has converted to 1.11, it'll be difficult to find MP games. I'm not even sure that anyone besides yourself is still ready to convert, given we finally managed to get the stubbon lemming to do it.

Oh well. I'll just keep my Fireball Templar in 1.10 then and won't MP with him - at least items are transferrable.
