2023.05.28 15:38 Invisavengogs BH has some good concepts but it's way too clunky/tedious in it's current form.

I don't wanna sound ungrateful to Jagex, it's honestly a good update but I don't like it.

TBH I'm already missing the confort I had in pvp world pking, the ge was right there with everything I'd need, supplies, gear, selling loot etc.
I would pick my own fights vs someone with similar risk/a fun setup to vs, and when we're done I can quickly tab, pool and get back into it. If they're safing constantly, ragging or being unsportsmanlike, I can easily just fight someone else with no issues.

In BH, not only do I find that most players are way more disrespectful of providing honorable fights, but it's also annoying because you cannot simply skip these players easily until you find an oponent with similar risk/attitude.
That part I guess is due to the comunity playing it, but some other design choices I literally can't understand. Everyone wants to fight close to the doors, yet you're always forced to spawn in the edges of a crater the size of Kourend. It's classic OSRS, making everything huge for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
You're running about all the time, looking for your oponent. I literally don't understand why you wouldnt let us tp away after we're done with the fight, and why tping to targets is locked behing a timer and an expensive unlockable scroll. Everyone pretty much just runs to the doors anyway after spawning, so the "edge spawning" is literally just useless, it's not fun and it doesn't provide anything else besides making the fighting feel clunky, messy and annoying.
I also don't get how the system doesn't try to match you or allow you to "queue" for things such as melee pk, or ranged, or higher risk, dh, or whatnot. It doesn't try to match you with a fun, suitable oponent at all.
Overall I really think we should let go of this horrible "no tabbing, running everyone" attitude and make the crater alot smaller, and making us fight next to the exit zones, or be able to quickly teleport into/out of fights. This system makes the whole process tedious and it doesn't improve against griefing in any way whatsoever. I'm usually drained after a few fights because of how much messier and clunkier it is compared to pvp world pking.

2023.05.28 15:25 Aiming4Gaming0 How To Farm ALL Resources in V Rising 2023 (Gloomrot update!)

How To Farm ALL Resources in V Rising 2023 (Gloomrot update!)

https://preview.redd.it/09zchs0kul2b1.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=187cea1e0eda767e688bb818d4e241c16afb3617
Secrets of Gloomrot has brought many new resources to collect, as well as some serious changes to resource farming locations. So, it's time to spotlight the best of them!
This is Aiming4Gaming, and today we're aiming for resource gaining!

TL;DR

This guide originated from my YouTube video, where I show all resource locations in action. If you enjoy watching videos, I would be really grateful if you checked it out and rated it - it would help me a lot!
However, it's also fair to offer something to Reddit, which is why I decided to make a text version of my guide here as well. So, if you prefer text guides, it's right below!
Important note: Reddit post is limited to 20 pictures, so I can't show every location :( I selected the most important locations as reference, but unfortunately that's my limit here. Also, to not overload map with all places, I highlighted typical locations for cotton and other wide-spreaded resource types.
I'll try to group up resources by their purpose.

Smelting


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest

Silverlight Hills
Copper can be extracted in large quantities from the Copper Mine, along with Hell's Clarion. Don't overlook chests, and remember to consume a worker to boost the resource yield!
Sulfur is obtained from the Bandit Sulfur Quarry. By the way, some nodes are surrounded by explosives, which obliterate them with a single precise shot!
If you require a substantial amount of copper or sulfur at once, the new Trancendum Mine is exactly what you need! However, exercise caution as the enemies there can be formidable.
Whetstones are commonly dropped in Bandit Encampments. The Bandit Armory is also a fantastic place since you can collect not only whetstones but also stone dust, which is essential for crafting whetstones! Whetstones are almost always found in the chests here, and occasionally they drop from barrels or enemies guarding the areas.
Iron can be extensively mined in two locations: the Haunted Iron Mine and the new Iron Cave.
To access the cave, you will need explosives or the bear form. I recommend using the bear form for an additional reason - these mines are guarded by numerous golems, but they won't attack you if you're in bear form! Unless you provoke them first! Additionally, the bear form enables you to break the massive deposits here, which yield a substantial amount of iron! Golems here also drop iron if, for some reason, you desire more from your run.
The Haunted Iron Mine is a much more challenging place for mining, with all the chaos unfolding everywhere! However, unlike the Iron Cave, it contains chests with other valuable items like sulfur, gems, grave dust, and books. Nonetheless, the abundance of enemies and the burning ground make this place less preferable than the Iron Cave. By the way, don't overlook the chests in the tents outside; they usually contain iron ore and other goodies!
The ideal location for Quartz in this update is the Quartz Quarry, which boasts numerous nodes and workers that enhance your resource yield. Also, be sure to check the houses for additional loot!
Scourgestones, along with some mourning lilies and bones, can be found in Dunley Monastery, the Church of the Damned, as well as the houses in Cursed or Ancient Villages.
Dunley Monastery features multiple containers, each typically containing one or more scourgestones. However, this place is protected by holy radiation, which can only be resisted by crafting a holy resistance potion.
The Church of the Damned appears to be easier, as you can collect chests and search graves here.
As for the Villages, you'll eventually need to visit them for ghost crystals anyway, so you can gather scourgestones as a bonus!
Silver can be obtained through two methods. Firstly, there are several nodes in the area to the West of the Silver Mine. Secondly, you can venture into the mine itself by navigating around and accessing it through a secret passage.

Tailoring


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest
Leather and rugged hide can be discovered in the Bandit Trapper Camp, conveniently located near the waygate. This location is filled with cages housing wolves and bears that drop the hides, allowing you to farm them all in one place instead of searching for them in the forests. Don't forget to explore the tents for barrels and chests, which typically contain leather and coarse thread.
Thick hide can be obtained from dogs and various creatures in all regions except Farbane Woods. For example, bears, moose and wolfs in the Hallowed Mountains drop them. Fish oil can be acquired in villages, or you can use blood press to convert fish into fish oil and fish bones.
Pristine hide is dropped by creatures in the Lurker Dwelling. Alternatively, you can pay a visit to Gracefall Village at night. During this time, you can eliminate the villagers when they transform into werewolves, and they drop a decent amount of hides. Ensure that you carry out this task at night, as they revert to their human form with the first rays of sunlight, resulting in human drops instead. This tactic works both ways, allowing you to weaken several villagers, wait for nightfall, and easily eliminate them in their werewolf form to obtain loot for free.
Silkworms can be found in the Spider Cave, where both spiders and cocoons drop them. Cocoons also contain various loot, and sometimes even people and spiders.

Fabricating & Advanced Smelting


Gloomrot

Silverlight Hills
To farm mutant grease and tech scrap in the new Gloomrot zone, you can take advantage of the ongoing battles between mutants and humans and collect their drops. These fights occur frequently near the radiated water, providing ample opportunities for gathering resources.
However, the most convenient area for farming is undoubtedly the Pools of Rebirth. Here, you'll encounter large groups of both factions engaged in combat, resulting in quick drop collection.
Another location worth exploring is Rustlock Village, where each house usually contains 1 to 3 containers filled with tech scrap, mutant grease, coins, and scrolls.
Tech scrap and depleted batteries can also be easily acquired in the Trancendum Camps, two of which are conveniently located near the waygates. Simply eliminate the guards and destroy the scrap piles, but exercise caution as some of them may explode.
Gold jewelry can be obtained in Brighthaven, either from chests found in human form or from enemies. However, beware that these enemies are the most formidable foes in the game.

Grinding


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Silverlight Hills
Bones, mourning lilies, and the occasional gravedust are abundant in the Forgotten Cemetery or Infested Graveyard. Make sure to thoroughly search graves and containers, as they often hold valuable items. As a bonus, some graves may reveal rats!
Regular gems can be mined in the Bedrock Pass, as it boasts numerous veins rich in precious stones.
For flawless gems, venture into the veins of the two Harpy Nests located in Silverlight Hills. However, prepare yourself for tough battles, as these areas are infested with angry mobs!
Ghost crystals can be obtained by mining nodes in the Cursed or Ancient Village, both of which offer a plentiful supply. Additionally, spectral dust and other valuable drops can be acquired from mobs or found in containers throughout these locations.

Planting


Farbane woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest

Silverlight Hills
The Gleaming Meadows is undoubtedly the best location to gather fire blossoms, blood roses, and snow flowers. You'll find an abundance of them there!
Hell's clarions can be found in Bear Cave, as well as in various mines such as the Copper Mine and Haunted Iron Mine.
For cotton, wool, cloth, sunflowers, and the occasional valuable worker with good blood quality, follow a clockwise route through several farms starting from the waygate and ending at Dawnbreak Village. Wardrobes in these farms often hold copper and silver coins, books, fish oil, and much more. When harvesting crops, it's advisable to use area-of-effect attacks to collect multiple plants simultaneously.
Some farms have garlic protection, which may debuff your vampire, but you can mitigate this by using bear form, increasing your garlic resistance and allowing for faster recovery. Alternatively, you can craft a garlic resistance brew once you've learned the recipe.
Witch huts offer a supply of ghost shrooms.
Sacred Grapes can be found in the Brighthaven Vineyards. You can either cut them from the vines or collect them from containers.
Plague briers are found in the woods of Gloomrot.
However, the most convenient farming spot for plants is your own garden. Simply plant the seeds and easily harvest the plants!
Utilize excess plants as a source of pollen, which can then be converted into coarse threads.

Studying

You can obtain paper by farming Bandit Camps, scrolls by looting Militia Encampments and Rustlock Village, and schematics by searching Army Outposts.
However, keep in mind that you already acquire sawdust from processing wood.
By combining sawdust with plant fiber in a paper press, you can efficiently produce paper, which serves as a great farming method. Once you have paper, it can be further converted into scrolls. And if you have a surplus of scrolls, they can be converted into schematics.

Additional Tips

You can construct tombs and vermin nests in order to cultivate certain resources such as silkworms, mutant grease, or scourgestones within your stronghold. However, it's important to note that this method requires the expenditure of other resources, so it's not the same as acquiring them freely in their respective zones.
Additionally, you have the option to dispatch your servants on raids, which can yield a substantial amount of resources in the background. Nonetheless, it's important to remember that these operations are time-consuming and limited to one active raid per zone.
Resource farming becomes significantly easier when you have a worker with a decent blood type. If you happen to have a worker with less than 100% blood quality, you can improve it by feeding them irradiant gruel. This will boost their blood quality by 1% or 2%.
However, it's important to note that there is a 35% probability that your prisoner may undergo a mutation when using this method. So, there is a certain element of risk involved, and you'll need to weigh the potential benefits against the possibility of a mutation.
In the endgame, an alternative to blood extraction is using blood merlot. This option consumes fewer health points and induces less misery, making it a worthwhile choice for acquiring blood resources.

Conclusion

I hope with this spotlight you have achieved what you were aiming for today!
If you want to watch more guides, they can be found on my YouTube channel! I'm doing my best to create guides on both YouTube and Reddit, but I have a full-time job, so it's a bit hard to keep up with everything :(
Anyway, thank you for reading up to this point, and see you later!

2023.05.28 14:37 TheFoxInTheAbyss Recent history of the $PEPE meme curve.

The PEPE token launched on the ethereum blockchain was a project that used a variety of methods to ensure that their market cap wasn't damaged during the early days of their launch.
The team behind it blacklisted the first page of wallet holders to stop them from selling and then used vicious public relation tactics to push the coin from the initial $1,000,000 market cap where I personally noticed it and continued to drive it all the way up to $1,500,000,000 market cap, making it another unforeseen monolith meme in the last few years.
However, this was not the first Pepe meme that started the craze and the original business founded project actually launched on the Binance Smart Chain around eight days ago.
The P.E.P.E. DAO project was launched prior to the most recent $PEPE coin curve craze and was founded on real world business knowledgeable by a creative team of ten professionals from a variety of different passionate crypto enthusiasts across the Web 3.0, plus self employed real world entrepreneurs.
The team are having to rebrand to not be related to meme coins, because they have an energy drink available for sale that just got its first confirmed store in the shiba Wings crypto diner on the gold coast of Australia and have provided A LOT more utilities since their inception on the BSC.
The project also contains a passively rewarding NFT series of over 30 different themes frogs, go kart game, forex trading bot, volume trading bot that works on any chain and the lead organiser is a specialist from the events industry, currently organising an immersive blockchain event in London this coming November.
It even managed to survive a staking pool hack on the 21st March where the lead organiser noticed their third party staking solution was being exploited and quickly managed to react by informing the contract developer twelve hours across the world to up the taxes to the maximum of 25%, subverting most of the damage and then refunding the affected investors up to 7% of the supply from their own pockets.
Please always do your research and make sure you support the real business in the space, not just the empty layer 2 tokenised nonsense that harms mass adoption by fuelling gambling habits that ultimately burn people out, and making web 3.0 a less sustainable space.
Cryptocurrency and decentralised finance is a bleeding edge form of technology that needs to be utilised by the people to unite our energies against the centralised governance that do not truly care for our lives or ability to provide a better life for ourselves, they simply want us to follow their pattern and work until we are too old to enjoy the fruit of our labours.
The People's DAO (formerly PepeDao) will continue their mission to unite all legitimate creative business developers in the space and create real world opportunities/solutions to speed mass adoption of this necessary technology that should be used by all, we have a duty as the forerunners of the space to provide the solutions that will enable people to use it for all of their web 2.0 needs.
We must create the mould that will funnel them through and protect them from the same mistakes we have made - rant over.
I would love to hear your thoughts of layer 2 tokenisation, mass adoption and cryptocurrency as a whole.
Please leave your thoughts below and thanks for reading - big love to the Satoshi Street Bets community.

2023.05.28 10:18 Tiredworker27 Immigration is bad for native workers wages

Its supply and demand: If there is an oversupply of labor - wages will stagnate or even go down. If you can import people willing to do the work for less - either through illegal immigration/large scale legal immigration or H1B visas - there is 0 incentive to pay more to get people from the existing labor pool.
People argue that more people = more consumption. While this is true it just means more low level paid jobs. More consumption is no reason to increase wages. It just inflates the GDP while keeping wages low.

2023.05.28 09:15 Rottenzelda Non EE PNP or EE

Hello,
I currently have a PGWP thay will expire on Nov 2025, after graduating from a 2 year Civil Engineering Tech Diploma. And have a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering from my homecountry.
Just completed 1 year of work experience in my NOC (21300) and decided to open my EE profile. I'm sitting in the pool with 457 points but missing 50 points from my foreign work experience (which will make me eligible for one of the draws).
I opened a construction company in 2016 and worked there for 4 years before moving to Canada to study. The thing is, I do not have official paystubs, only monthly deposits/invoices from jobs done and supplies. It's also highly likely the documentation will not support the amount of hours worked.
While I gather all the documents needed to prove my self employment (time worked and that I was paid) : - about 48 bank statement and the translations, -letters from clients and providers, and their translations.
I estimate it will take me about 4-5 months to gathetranslate everything which will leave me with just 1 year of PGWP.
I am debating between applying for a non EE stream in Alberta and hopefully receive a PNP or wait until I can prove my self employed work experience and if possible receive an ITA in an EE draw by the end of the year, (if invited) receive my PR before my current permit expires.
I filled (1 week ago) the form for the Alberta accelerated pathway which is an EE PNP stream but haven't heard anything back and I'm guessing it can also take months before receiving a reply (if any).
Right now my hesitation is: time.
Would it be better to apply for the non EE stream? I've read it could take years for approval (my permit will likely expire before approval) but it will get things going, Or wait 6 months to qualify for an EE draw and pray that my self employment experience gets approved.
Any advice is highly appreciated.
Also any advise to prove self employed foreign work experience would be great.
Thank you.
TL;DR Debating between applying for a non EE stream in Alberta and hopefully receive a PNP in God-knows-how-long or wait 6 months until I can prove my self employed work experience (praying that it gets accepted), wait for an EE draw and hopefully receive an ITA/PR before my current permit expires.

2023.05.28 07:20 pcwov805 Bit at pool store, owner did not care of course!

I recently stopped at my local pool supply store and was bit by the store owners' dog. It was roaming free in the store and started just to at me, once I approached the counter to checkout, it got aggressive and bit my foot.
The amazing part is that the owner took zero concern for the situation and never apologized. She actually laughed and said "he does that to me but rarely my customers, haha!" How can someone be so out of touch to let their aggressive dog be unleashed around customers?

2023.05.28 05:01 KayakingHedgehog 36 [M4F] NC - Did I bring a tear to your eye or was it just the allergies?

It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air along with all the plant jizz, and I am looking for the someone who is willing to venture out into this yellow, dusty mess with me, and then come home and just take a nap before our sinuses close up in anger and we cough ourselves to sleep. I am looking for someone to vent my mundane troubles too, someone that I know would be there to help with whatever may come up, and someone that I can laugh with, someone to cry with, someone that would just run with a crazy idea without hesitation.
Enough about me! Let’s talk about what you may be looking for! Are you looking for that special someone? You know, the one that laugh with on a daily basis. The one that you can have an entire conversation with using nothing but funny pictures? Are you looking for the creepy and the kooky? What about the mysterious and spooky? Would that someone be a person with a mohawk that is forever changing colors? How about a neatly trimmed beard that smells of sandalwood? What about the smell of Old Spice? Would that person also happen to have a few piercings and tattoos? Do you like the twang of a Southern accent? What if that accent was happen to be from a guy who is open minded? Do you enjoy a quick wit? How about being fluent in smartassary? How about a guy that is taking care of way too many fish? How about a guy who is starting to find grey hairs in his beard and is embracing the chance to become a silver fox?
Would you like for that person to be able to build a computer and change your oil all in the same day? How about having your tires rotated, breaks changed? I can even do headlights and air filters! Does the thought of helping turtles cross a busy road and helping tiny tadpoles stay safe with a pool of water during the summer tickle your fancy? Would you like to come home and have a pot roast and chocolate cake waiting for you? How about coming home to that random piece of IKEA furniture fully assembled? What about someone who would help while you built the IKEA? Does the idea of a guy who has reached the level of old that he enjoys puzzles intrigue you? How about if he has a love for cats that like to sit on said unfinished puzzles? Are you looking for a guy who can change your oil, replace your brakes, and cook you dinner in the same day? How about a guy who is good with his hands and knows it? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the nerdy home maker package is for you! Who doesn’t want help around the house, basic maintaince taken care of, and some good dick?
Do you have an endless supply of DIY ideas? Well look no further because I do too! Ever wanted a stylish bat house or raised garden bed? I have made both! Would you want a greenhouse? I have plenty of ideas for that! Do you like watching a guy get dirty restoring canoes or building trailers? Do you have a Mad Max fantasy you want to live out? Do you want a house straight from the shire? I have the skills and the 3d printers to make you swoon with possibilities! If you answered yes to any of these questions, the glistening geek package is for you! What’s not to love about watching someone you like getting sweaty while watching your ideas come to life?
For a limited time, if you pick both packages, I will add in the nerdy outdoorsman package for no extra charge! Want to stay in one weekend and marathon Doctor Who, Star Trek, or Futurama? Do you want to play Don’t Starve Together, DnD, or Civ 6? How about Nerf gun fight, or a game of Mario for bragging rights? Feel like staying up late bundled under a load of blankets watching B movies or playing all manor of video, board, or card games? Feel like getting outdoors instead? I can offer spontaneous adventures that may include wondering aimlessly, hiking, and floating blissfully down a river which singing the PACMAN theme song! Random acts of hilarity that could include striking poses and quoting pop culture references! Are you more of a night owl? I can offer you a view of the stars with my telescope!
How about it? Wanna get itchy eyes and a runny nose with me?

2023.05.28 03:46 YandereLobster Lone Wolf

One week prior to the repair of Bracco Village.
For as far as Bianca Nero could see, red littered the landscape. Nothing but red and orange. An always-autumnal path in the pilgrimage she’d taken so long ago, when she set off for Beacon. But for better or worse, she didn’t feel like the same person she was when she’d taken this path so long ago.
Leaves crunched beneath her feet, a cool breeze bristling against her cheek as her white cloak gently swayed in the breeze, making her stand out like a white blot on a red canvas. She was alone, but never felt lonely here. Just a little further and she’d be home again, catching up with her grandparents and telling them how Beacon was going.
It wasn’t an easy trip per say. If it was, she would’ve come back more often. But seldom were the times that she actually could make a trip like this without missing a day of classes, and the shoddy connection on her scroll way out here in the wilderness made it particularly difficult. It’d taken more than a little struggling just to message Russet to let him know the trip had gone well.
But slowly, the crunch of leaves slowed to a halt. Bianca’s eyes shifted skyward, staring up at the treetops as the wind bit against her canine ears. Something wasn’t right. There was a chill in the air, and not the same as the cold wind. It was difficult for her to put her finger on just what was bothering her, in fact. Like feeling a change in the weather in one’s bones. But this was Bianca’s home, so what could there be to worry about? She’d come all this way, and now it was just a half hour walk until she was finally back.
And so the girl continued on to Bracco.
Bianca’s single, bright blue eye gazed numbly at the old watch-tower. It was one of Bracco’s oldest landmarks, an old stone watch-tower from the Great War, left behind and abandoned. She used to climb it all the time as a kid, to get a good look over the forest.
But now, the stone tower lay crumbled and broken, toppled over by damage to one of its now ancient supports. It was old and fragile, but to collapse like this? Bianca knew without a second thought it wasn’t an accident or coincidence.
The overgrown stone bricks finally led Bianca to her destination as she reached the tip of a rather bumpy hill, her heart filled with worry rather than nostalgia. On the very edge of her sight lay the familiar red and white tents that littered the market, always enticing the travelers that passed through Bracco on the way to Vale. But it wasn’t like she remembered, not in the slightest. Gone were the echoes of carts clattering and the commotion of conversation, replaced with dead silence save for the hissing wind. Like a nightmarish reflection of her most treasured memories.
Her ears perked up as she turned back and forth, but the stalls were empty. No proof they’d ever been full, save for the tracks of carts against the road. But what’s more odd was the contents of the stalls. The produce hadn’t been set out, but many of the supplies and registers were still locked. Only the essentials were gone. Which meant, if Bianca’s assumption was correct, that they’d left in a hurry. But it was what awaited her in the square that terrified Bianca the most.
Just past the market and between the somewhat narrow paths, Bianca found herself in what should’ve been the busiest part of this small town. A simple gathering in the middle of Bracco, with a bar, some local government related buildings, and a fountain situated on the edge of the Ghiaccio River — right across from the farmstead she’d grown up on.
The roof of the old bar had been caved in by something heavy, the entrance torn open as if by a feral beast. The fountain cracked from something impacting against it, with a dark red stain about its edges. Like the ruins of some battlefield rather than the homely town she’d been expecting. It was gone. Even if she found where the people had gone, if they had in fact survived, Bracco was in ruins. Her entire purpose in becoming a Huntress, destroyed before she’d even had a chance to try.
“Anyone!?” Bianca called out as loud as she could. “Is anyone here!?”
Worry caught in Bianca’s throat. “Rosso!? Rosa?” Bianca called out again, her voice shaky with concern for her grandparents. “...Anyone? Please...”
But no one replied.
Until something did.
Bianca turned sharp towards one of the collapsed houses as the sound of wood creaking echoed out. White claws emerged from the darkness, old bits of red stained against the tips as black furred legs emerged, bone plating littered across its body, forming a mask with red accents - pristine save for a long crack down the side of it’s mask — and a tiny knife still embedded within it’s eye socket, though it didn’t seem to be able to feel it. Bianca’s old knife.
It was a Grimm Bianca knew all too well. An old, local legend nicknamed Belial by the towns that had been victim to it. One of those victims being a much younger Bianca, and it’d cost her an eye. But why here? It was true that Bracco was rural, but they’d never had Grimm in town before. And this damage couldn’t possibly be the work of a single Beowolf, alpha or not. Something had drawn them into town. But there was a more pressing matter than that.
Bianca’s heart ached for her home, but rage made for an excellent painkiller.
The Beowolf growled menacingly, only for the gnashing of teeth to be overpowered by the deafening, echoing burst of aura engulfing Bianca as her semblance practically erupted from her. The ringing howl of her semblance betrayed the pure fury that filled Bianca, her teeth clenched tight and the claws of her gauntlets begging to tear into the creature. For a Grimm that could only see negative emotion, the sight of the young huntress was like looking upon a bonfire of nothing but anger and hate, and only moments later would it all be directed upon the beast.
Bianca leapt forward like a crazed, feral animal, her claws tearing into the Beowolf’s arm as she opened the brawl with a series of feral slashes from her claws. Aggressive and fast, far more so than she even knew she was capable of. More than she’d ever put to use at Beacon. But those were training, just practice against other huntsmen. This, on the other hand, was a raw desire — or even a need, to kill no matter what it took.
Even as the Beowolf’s claws lashed out at Bianca, blue sparks of aura fluttering off as it impacted against her aura, there was no flow of combat. No ebb and flow of attack and defense, just raw aggression tearing into the opponent, the pain barely registering in Biana’s mind. But soon she was forced to confront it as the beast rammed its full force against her, slamming against the berserk huntress as she was hurtled backwards, crashing through wood as what was left of the aura shielding her dissipated.
Bianca winced as she stood, quickly recognizing the old inn. Pain was beginning to set in as she looked down, a bit of wooden shrapnel having embedded itself loosely in her side, blood pooling against the black fabric. A surface wound, but a warning of what would come if she kept this up. Her eye shifted to check the dust chamber of her left gauntlet, a vicious smirk breaking her composure. ‘Thanks, Firnen. Worked out perfectly.’
The already precarious roof of the inn shifted and creaked as the Beowolf violently bashed aside one of the bits of lumber blocking the entrance, only to be met with a volley of bolts from Bianca’s crossbow. Only it wasn’t to cover her retreat, but the opposite. By the time it had caught a glance of her, she’d already closed the distance again, the claws suddenly lifting away from the hand just a bit, the circuit connecting as a sharp, crackling sound filled the room, lighting up the darkness of the entryway in an instant as the electrical dust sparked to life. Shock coursed through the Beowolf’s body, numbing it to the sensation of Bianca gripping the knife embedded in its blind eye, tearing it from the socket. No sooner had her childhood knife returned to her grip than she embedded it in the creature’s neck. But what would’ve been a fatal blow for another Grimm was far too shallow for Belial.
Just as she was about to press the assault, pain filled Bianca’s mind as she let out a harsh cry, the Grimm’s maw biting down desperately on her arm, cracking through the dust chamber as it sparked, burning against Bianca’s shoulder. Floorboards cracked beneath them, liberating Bianca from its grip only to fill her with the brief terror of falling, as the two opponents fell to the basement below. And while Bianca was able to land on her feet, it may have been for the worse, as a barely audible ‘crack’ seemed to send pain up her leg. Burning, agonizing pain from her ankle, but even still she was determined to fight through it. The creature had taken her eye, and now her home. No matter what it took, it wouldn’t take more.
Belial looked up to meet its opponent just as a flash of white appeared before it. But what it slashed at wasn’t a huntress at all. Rather, Bianca’s thrown cloak in a last ditch effort to distract the creature. And that sheet of white would be the last thing the beast saw.
With a cry of both pain and rage, Bianca threw herself at the Grimm, ready to kill or be killed as she tore her gauntlets into its neck. The moment the claws connected, the damaged dust-chamber sparked to life. Pitch black fur split aside as the Grimm’s head separated from it’s body, propelled by the imminent blast of sparking and combusting dust blowing open the side of Bianca’s gauntlet.
The sounds of battle faded, as did Bianca’s anger. And all that replaced it was emptiness, and pain.
Even once she’d dragged herself out of the ruins, Bianca could hardly walk. It took an old piece of wood just to balance herself enough to walk on her broken ankle.. No sooner had she been greeted by the empty silence of a dead town than familiar howls rang out in the distance, a shiver running down the Faunus’ spine. She knew one Grimm couldn’t have done all of this, but even with all her desire for vengeance, she wouldn’t last through another fight. And Bracco needed help more than she did.
Her mind felt light and dazed, practically dragging herself along as she made her way back down the road and into the familiar red forest. Desperately she stared at her scroll. And the moment there was even the smallest bit of a signal, her shaky hand began sending an SOS to Beacon, even as the pain from her combusted gauntlet began to set in along the burned arm.
No sooner had it gone through than Bianca collapsed against a tree, her lone eye watching the red canopy of leaves above. Finally, she had a chance to breathe. Her reason to hunt had been destroyed, and in turn she’d burned her anger and every last bit of effort she had to destroy one of the creatures responsible. But now the deafening anger was gone, and she could hear again. But the only sound she heard was unbearable loneliness.
By the time Bianca was found by the huntsmen that Beacon sent, she was barely clinging to life. A makeshift bandage made from her sleeve was all that kept her from bleeding out, although even then it wasn’t clear if she’d really survive. But days came and went, and with time, Bianca found her strength returning. But even then, her purpose was still gone.
But a purpose was something Bianca could find with time. It would take more than one loss to break the young wolf.

Can’t get my water to clear out after opening. New pool owner.
So earlier this week I had an algae issue when opening the pool. I have treated for it twice. Each time I used a whole bottle (48 oz) of algaecide and then 3 CASES of liquid chlorine as advised at Leslie’s.
Replaced my filter cartridges. Brushed/vacuumed, cleaned new filters non stop, but my water remains more teal than the 90’s Pistons jerseys. Help! I’d love to see the bottom of the pool before tossing my kids in.

Today’s score off Facebook marketplace
Hey everyone, I was browsing Facebook marketplace this morning and I came across this post for a Macintosh se/30 for $25 or best offer. There was also a mention of a G4 cube available. I’m a sucker for the G4 cube as well as I do love the se/30. So I figured I’d message the seller and see if still available. All there was on the listing was a photo of the se/30 with no power. So I have no clue about what the cube looks like or anything extra included. I get a reply from the seller, still available. I ask for a pic of the cube and I get one. I’m then asked to make an offer. I really didn’t need an extra se/30 or a 3rd cube, but if the price was right, why not? I said $50 figuring that’s what I would spend without the wife being upset since I already have these machines and running outta space. The seller accepted! I figured this couldn’t be legit. I did some investigating, the seller has no photos in their Facebook account, had an account since 2010 and I only seen about 4 posts on their timeline. Seems shady, but I know people who have accounts but never use them. Whatever, I’m gonna go for it. I get there and there’s some things that could make a paranoid person scared or nervous (like me) lol but it was perfectly fine. The seller was a great friendly guy! Very pleasant. The red/scary flags for me were when I pulled up and saw a bulldozer in the yard with a dirt pile and a hole (thinking “oh great! That’s the pool I’ll be buried under) when I met the seller at his door, he had the items in the hallway right next to a room with a blue tarp covering the floor (this was because there were several canvases, paints and some cool paintings done. Once again, it’s my murder TV addicted brain going wild) after the transaction was done he mentioned there’s also this glass backed iMac in the basement if I wanted to check it out as well while I was here. (Basements are always great. But I figured a glass backed iMac? Maybe it’s the CRT ADC studio display. I love those!) turns out it wasn’t a iMac but a apple lcd ADC monitor. I already have a few of these so really didn’t need another. I told the seller it wasn’t actually a iMac but a display for apple machines with an ADC video card, like the G4 cube. He then said something along the lines of “that’s right it’s for the cube! The pleas take it, I don’t want you to have a incomplete set of it goes to the cube). this is what I ended up with! I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see all the extra goodies like keyboards for both machines, the book for the se/30, the speakers and power supply for the cube, not to mention the box for the se/30! It was a great surprise and a hell of a deal for $50. The seller mentioned he also got a ton of messages about the machines after we had spoken. But I was the first one and we had already agreed. What a cool guy! I’ve included pictures of the listing and the goodies I ended up with, super excited to test it all out, it’s all in fantastic shape! (Minus the cube speakers have the typical foam rot, but I’ll repair that)

2023.05.27 20:50 dark_nodens Uniqueness, Ultimate Editions, and Ultimate Luck!

Greetings, fellow Redditors! I trust this message finds you in good spirits. I would like to share some consolidated feedback regarding the current trajectory of War Robots, encompassing both the game's overall direction and its various events.
  1. Uniqueness of Content: I have observed a commendable commitment to fostering uniqueness in the game, particularly through the introduction of novel robot and weapon concepts. From drawing inspiration from ancient hunting tools (like the spike and stake) to showcasing robots on wheels (such as the lynx), and now featuring robots with animal-like aesthetics like the Ophion, the game has taken a captivating path.
  2. Ultimate Editions: Bringing old robots back to life is always a delightful notion that resonates with players. The Ultimate Edition weapons and robots have proven to be a splendid addition, boasting both formidable power and striking visual designs. However, let us engage in a fair discussion here. While introducing Ultimate Editions that are understandably difficult to obtain initially due to their novelty, it would be equitable to provide slight enhancements to the regular versions as well. Additionally, offering unique paint jobs for these regular versions would further promote an enjoyable gaming experience.
  3. Ultimate Luck: The integration of the Ultimate Luck feature within the Supply Centre section holds promise. It could be an intriguing addition, provided that the gold cost of unlocking these items is reasonably adjusted, perhaps aligning it with the value of upgrading pilot skills or tiers. Alternatively, the cost could progressively increase as the prizes are rolled, with the understanding that the prize obtained remains fixed and does not reappear in subsequent draws. This process could continue until all twelve rolls are completed, with the final roll incurring the highest cost. However, the rewards themselves would benefit from improvement, including an increased allocation of resources such as keys, cells, power tokens, and comprehensive prizes like regular modules or weapons. Moreover, the "win" jackpot should grant access to a concealed pool of prizes, encompassing ultimate items alongside additional resources and equipment. Ideally, players should have at least three chances to roll for rewards, ensuring that they are not limited to a single attempt. Once these opportunities have been exhausted, the roll would reset to its regular state, offering a refreshed list of obtainable prizes.
  4. Fixed Events: Pixonic deserves recognition for their commendable handling of the GFP event, wherein they removed components from the chests, aligning with the event's intended design. Moving forward, upcoming events should present players with complete prizes, striking a balance between the inclusion of multiple pilots (while avoiding an excessive quantity) and the removal of components from the chests. To truly elevate the quality of these events, they should offer meta items, including various weapons, robots, modules, and resources, all while ensuring that drop rates are suitably adjusted.
In conclusion, I encourage you all to continue adapting to the game and embark on joyful hunting endeavors, dear commanders.

2023.05.27 20:27 pwnagezorz Cost-effective limited, out-of-standard

Context
I'm a relatively recent newbie to MTG; looking for some advice/thought around best approach for playing limited with sets that are no longer in standard.
The most fun aspects of MTG for me are playing within a constrained pool of cards and the strategy associated with building a deck as well as looking at the art on the cards during play. I find commander intriguing too, but haven't had a chance to play yet. I'm not interested in staying up-to-date with standard, and I'm not interested in treating mtg as an economic investment. I also don't actually get to play that often, so I'm trying to be somewhat frugal in how I approach getting new cards.
Thoughts
There are some sets that I think look really cool given mechanics and art/theme. For example, I really enjoyed joining a friend's draft with Adventures in Forgotten Realms (AFR) because of the D&D theme. However, now that AFR is no longer standard, I can't buy draft boosters in my local stores. So I can either buy a draft box (more packs than I really want or can find friends to share with) or I could by singles online. With AFR I can actually still buy pre-release packs and draft packs online, but for older sets (e.g., 10 years ago), this becomes less feasible, and draft boxes become more expensive.
So one of the things I'm wondering is if anyone has thoughts on simply buying singles in a set (e.g., the entire collection or close to) vs buying a draft box/packs for use in limited (e.g., drafting)? For example, with some of the sets I'm looking at, I could buy the entire collection for about $200, which is close to the cost of a draft box. With the draft box, I'm going to get a lot of duplicates, whereas with the single route I'm going to have everything unique. On the flip side, I'd have only one copy of each card with the single route, and I'm not sure if this could pose problems with drafting. My other idea is to write a script that samples (without replacement) cards from the set, and then buy them as singles. For example, if I have four players in my draft, sample 15 cards from the set with the draft pack distribution, then buy them, and then host a draft. If I filter out the expensive cards, this ends up appearing to be a pretty cost-effective solution.
I've also heard about the pauper format, but I've never played it. This could be a nice option as well. For one set I realized I could buy over 200 unique cards for about $30 if I simply selected cards <$1. Doing that, I still end up with quite a few uncommons and rares.
The last thought I had was that with some of the old sets, newer cards might be better because they could have the same mechanics and could be cheaper since supply is higher. This might not really satisfy the art condition because I like a lot of the older art that looks hand-drawn, but it's something I was curious about -- whether this happens (i.e., newer cards with same or better abilities or synergies).
