i dont go based on math, i go based off what i can see. And what i see is A LOT of yellow numbers. But no one is making you follow my guide i’ve played 3 beast masters and my opinions you have yours. Doesn’t de-value my post.
Pretty sure I am replying to this incorrectly, I don’t post often. Though I hope you can consider this without thinking it’s a personal attack. I think online it’s hard to tell the context or the tone of some replies.
I can’t say for sure, but I don’t think Tree was attacking you, but was definitely calling out your claim of “100%” crit. I know that you backpedaled and said it’s not 100%, but I must say that it bothers me to make a statement of “going from what you can see”.
If what you see, doesn’t make sense math wise, then that’s fine; but it needs to be addressed. Example, “My pet’s only have a crit of 40% on paper, but all I see are crits.”. A comment like this is much more useful, as long as there is follow up.
Why are you only seeing crits? Is there a mistake in the UI, making crits overlap non crits for displaying all of the numbers? Is there a mistake with one of the nodes, giving base crit where it shouldn’t? Is it intended for crit to be so high, or clearly a bug?
These things are important, and I can’t disagree with Grimlock9999 more. Why is nuances and min maxing fruitless, just because we are in beta? If anything, it’s MORE important that this shit gets sorted out now. Not so that we can find an OP build, but so that we can be confident the mechanics actually work as intended… You know… Kinda like how we are all testing the game for the developers… How is now not the time to figure this stuff out?
I find it frustrating that there is so little information about the game, and then on the forums, where we should all be working together to figure this stuff out, instead I’m seeing fanboyisms already. I get it, you guys like this game, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a mess, that a ton of stuff clearly isn’t working as intended.
We should be all working together to find these inconsistencies, and when someone calls you out and says this math doesn’t add up, that should be a good thing. But instead it looks like that logical thinker was the one attacked.
I think the point of this thread was to discuss pets. It got derailed, but I’d like to see that conversation start over. Is there anything you can add about the difference in crit from on paper as to on screen? This is the information that I feel all of us would like to see.
I don’t have any character other than a paladin, so I can’t add to the conversation, but just from playing that one class, there are clearly bugs and things not working. I don’t feel that a guide can be written about inconsistencies without at least addressing them.
