    The clerk says, "Hrrrm, Mogonis, you do seem to be eligible for full citizenship. Just WRITE your name in the book if you wish to make it official."

    Most of what Fleurs says on the forums is factually correct. The problem is people get butthurt over how she says it, because everyone is easily butthurt over everything and are more worried about how someone says something than what they're saying. I'm not gonna out her on this, but she had a much larger impact on the Lumnis average than people think (she plays more than just Fleurs, to the point where if everything else about the next Lumnis contest remains the same except for her participation, the average will drop dramatically), and I agree with her predictions about what will happen in the next round. People seem to think if they just hunt like normal but mash the keyboard a little faster, they'll top the charts like nothing, and the whole "socialism" argument for the Lumnis contest is pretty spot on too, which was the first thing I thought of when I read the exp change announcement. The average is going to go way down on the next contest if it's done without any changes being made because the top earners, who jump through all sorts of hoops to max their Lumnis exp, are being "rewarded" with a nerf to their own exp gain.

    I'm lazy as fuck when it comes to min/maxing exp, so this Lumnis change will probably benefit me a lot, but I still think its current implementation is stupid since it does nothing to reward the top earners that are doing most of the work that everyone else is benefitting from.

Asinine!!!
    That's because she has usually explained the same thing 4782904723809 times by the time she says that. Anyone that's been keeping up with the wizard forums since summer 2015 should know this. She'll explain something, someone will respond with a bunch of really shitty ideas, she (usually) explains why it's bad, then the cycle repeats 4823740 times until she gets tired of repeating herself. I wouldn't have had nearly as much tolerance for the amount of stupid shit people posted on the wizard forums. Whether people like her or not, there's a pretty good chance that she's forgotten more things regarding game mechanics across almost every profession than most of the people ripping on have ever learned about game mechanics at all.


    Krakii though, yeah he's just cancer and will derail every thread into something about how something completely unrelated worked in like 1992, and almost every idea he posts in regards to game mechanics is far beyond stupid as fuck and he's basically still stuck in the early 90s and probably still thinks he's playing GS2.

    I started responding to him like this:



    Pretty sure it went over his head though...

    I don't know that krakii ever had meaningful input on game mechanics / design. Just events, people / characters that played 30 years ago, and "well...in rolemaster...."

    Still useful...ish.

    Also, it's possible for krakii and fleurs to be idiots. I mean fleurs is complaining about the average being what...2k or less than the absolute max anyone got, which is apparently still higher than basically anyone has ever realistically attained and will continue to be that number for the next 12 lumnis cycles, without having to use any of the boosts/resources that were required to invest to attain that number.

    But this is why the contest was a dumb idea. They should have just made it a static 25k bonus exp. Round number, near the theoretical max (that no one has apparently ever even really come close to), no drama. So its artificially high...oh no, an extra ~3-4k exp a week. Game's broken guys, pack it up.

    I also trained my ranger in lockpicking, which I also thought was for quests and shit instead of loot boxes. When I realized it wasn't, I sat in the east tower picking while I rested from a hunt. I'd keep repairing the same alum lockpick too and then wondering why it sucked so bad after a while.

    I think I only did 1x edged weapons for a while too. And by the time I quit that character at 25, I think I knew up to 609 and 103.

    It was pretty bad.

    I always thought it was Naos' way of not very subtly trolling Krakii by naming the largest repository of information after one of our most visible, but unknowledgeable members.

    I kind of thought it was in poor taste, and was probably why they renamed it all when Wyrom took over since he's done a lot more to instill more systemic class than his predecessors.

    Kinda sad that GS is so monolithic in it's gameplay that you basically have to start all over if you screw up your training especially during GS3 days. DR it doesn't much matter; be anything you want.

    That's not the case in GS4, so "especially GS3" should say "at least in GS3".

    I'm sure you know this already though and are just being a dick drinker.

    May have been trolling - could certainly see Naos doing that. Krakii certainly never caught on himself to it.
