noob questions

Postby Elwinbu on Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:44 pm

hey everyone, new guy here(well, for the full version that is, played the alpha version in the past)

just a few basic questions that I couldn't find an answer for(and forgive me if I missed it):

1) What slow does?

2)What "resist down" means?

3)I met a guardian something(don't remember full name) that has 100% resist physical and counters fireballs. is it possible to beat it? do I need to do something special before I'll be able to beat him?

will probably be good to know about other stuff that are new in the full version over alpha.

thanks in advance! :)

1) Slow is multi-functioning. One it removes first strike from a target that is slowed. In addition it makes it so they always strike last(effectively giving you first strike). It also gives 1 bonus xp if the monster is killed while slowed.
2) Resist down lowers your resistance by a percentage listed. You cannot go below 0. So if you have 15% physical resist and 10% magic resist and get hit by a 3% resist down you will have 12% and 7%. This is non-recoverable.
3) This is a puzzle dungeon to get one of the God's. There are ways to get around this target. I am not sure if you are looking to have this spoiled or not so I will not spoil it.

To add to xspeeballx's response to number 3, there's at least three different solutions.

Also to add to my response to #1 slow also prevents targets from blinking and fleeing(cowardly). Which can be nice too.

Thanks alot for the answers!

As for slow, it gives 50% bonus experience on the kill with a minimum of 1 exp, which is actually a little better than what xspeedballx said (at least, this is from the last time I tried it). If the monster is hurt in any way but does not die, the slow effect wears off, including all bonuses this provides.

Unless it has changed since the last update, that is not true. I took careful notes after the new benefit was added to slow, and I never saw it add more than one xp per kill, regardless of the monster's level.

Yep, it's only 1 bonus exp.

IMAWALL gives 50% and as far as I know/remember the only source of that.

Yup, it even has a little symbol over your class picture.
