Actually. Not quite. Since release of MP content, I've solely done all my testing and killing in MP10. While others farm lower MP for exp / legendaries, I actually didn't care about any of that. The only reason I log into Diablo is to get my character to a point where MP10 is a walk in the park and I can kill elites without batting an eyelash, and I'm getting to that point, after more than a year of doing that.
While people farmed, I tested.
I think it'll give people some perspective as to why I chose a tank route instead of a full attention dps route. I work at a car dealership where I am logged onto my laptop, calling clients, following up on leads, reserving test drives, driving a few hours to do car swaps, doing a delivery and making sure my clients are happy. I'm not the type of person that is able to have a regular Diablo experience, because I'm at work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Therefore, logging in at work allows me to flip AH (which is my most frequent activity) and on occasion, when I have some down time after I get a deal signed, or a car delivered, I start up an Act 3 MP10 game with my DH and have a blast. But I always have to keep one eye towards the front door to see my next potential sale walking through... I don't have the time or feel like putting in the energy to pay 100% attention to my screen everytime I play. I far from lack experience in the department of high MP gameplay as that's the ONLY gameplay I do.
On a side note, don't care what you call it, but after a few hundred hours of running the same maps, the same elites, etc, one can call themselves experienced. Are you saying you're incapable of mastering a skill after 800 hours (total time for me) of training? What does that say about one's personal character?
You don't have to give me the history of your playing. I mean no disrespect.
That's not what I meant when I called you inexperienced. Remember even in another thread I was saying how you should've tested Jagged Spikes more, before you tried to dismiss that crit damage isn't factored. It's like you didn't even want to consider the possibility that you tested incorrectly. I don't have to look at someone's profile and harp on their elite kills, or see that they're decked out in blue items and playing MP0. My replies never have anything to do with that.
You ragged on Kirus for giving his own experienced based numbers on what +10 discipline does for him. Yet you asked for strict math, but it's something you can't easily quantify or put to a number, I think it was clear when he put his own arbitrary
percentages on what +10 Disc does for him.
Being a theorycrafter, I figured you'd understand what he was saying. The actual %'s of what he was saying there don't matter.
I'm not concerned about hours played, or elite kills in total.
btw, just so you know, I'm not questioning your MP10 capabilities, never have. I'm not questioning your discipline management, either. Cause I don't care. I don't care about anyone's MP10 capabilities, that !@#$ is just increased numbers in monster health and gear... the AI doesn't
change. The only thing I'm concerned about is a player's ability to put out %weapon damage, the choices they actually make ingame
, how fluid they can control their DH, and the understanding of indirect options the game has to offer.
When people think they know it all and that there is nothing new for them to discover, that looks like inexperience to me.
@Ragnar: I called you ignorant because your reply to me was hypocritical, you have no idea what MP a DH is capable of, you can only attempt to infer. Your reply undermined even the perspective Xenophis was coming from. MP10 is just increased numbers, no new AI changes
. If someone is wearing low end blues, MP2 could just as easily become MP10 in practice, and MP10 could be like MP50.
