    This tournament is too cool to pass:

    What do you think is imbalanced about it?
    I thought carefully about which skills to consider useless and which to ban. I don't really want to change those.

    Re: Tournament Idea - The Most Useless

    Well, quick update. I have gotten to lvl 15 on my mage-mancer. Before acquiring skeleton mages I found a rare throwing knife and used it for 1 pt poison dagger and throwing, clay golem to tank. Here's a pic. Sorry can't be bothered to calculate score at this point.
    Code:
    Forum Name:     Char Name:     Class:    Useless Skill:      Level:     Location:           Score:
    SunsetVista     Chiiko         Amazon    Exploding Arrow     1          Rogue Camp (N)      0
    pharphis        CookieCutter   Barb      Incr. Stamina       1          Rogue Camp (N)      0
    Grisu           BlazeRunner    Sorc      Blaze               1          Rogue Camp (N)      0
    Zaph            Kel-thuzad     Necro     Skel.Mage           15         Dark Wood (N)        ?

    Tournament starts on the 15.

    Also, you aren't supposed to cast your clay golem in this tournament. He's definitely not useless.

    Re: Tournament Idea - The Most Useless

    5 Quick questions: do the points for broken item (+5) and the mods on the item stack? E.g., if rare boots have CtC something, "of thawing" and added Stamina and are broken, do I get 8 points or 5? (The same question applies to broken cracked items: 6 or 5 points?

    And if I socket a not-banned rare item with the Larzuk quest, do I get an additional point for only having one socket?

    Superior armors: does their ED% mod count towards the +1 bonus point for enhanced defense mod?

    Does the Half Freeze Duration of a Safety Body Armor count as "of Thawing"?
    EDIT: Forgot: It's a light armor, so no points at all I guess? :P

    Do mods you listed as pre- or suffix ("of Thawing", "of Flame") count on rare items, too, or only on magical items when they are actually called "of Thawing"?



    If all questions are answered with yes, the most you could get out of an item would be crafted Safety Armor pieces (3 fixed mods that can possibly count towards your score + 4 random mods) or Hit Power Ring with only 1 PDR/MDR/Dex (the same).

    So highest score for one item would be:

    Ethereal Safety Crafted Helm with
    1 PDR (+1)
    1 MDR (+1)
    10-30% ED (+1)
    4 random mods that each grant +1 (+4)
    1 socket added by Larzuk (+1)
    socketed with a %EDam/+Dam jewel (+5)
    broken so it's useless (+5)
    ethereal (+1)

    Total: 19

    *starts calculating the odds for such an item*

    Re: Tournament Idea - The Most Useless

    1. yes (that's a pretty useless thing isn't it?)
    2. yes (I know that there are some nice rares out there, and that adding a socket to one of them doesn't necessarily make it useless, but it is a bit less complex this way)
    3. no (this is on the FAQ)
    4. yes (any form of half freeze duration counts)
    5. yes (they count on rare items too, but make sure that it's 'of flame' and not higher fire damage than that)

    Don't forget to personalize that hat for an extra point! And it's crafted, so it gets another point, too.

    Edit: I had originally meant for the +1 (and only one) bonus to only work on rings and amulets. How often are those found on armor? I might change the rules so that those crafted safety hats are worth more points the way you say.

    Re: Tournament Idea - The Most Useless

    Thanks for the quick reply! Must have missed the part with superior Armor...damn, now I will have to decide whether I'll go for points of MF with chipped Topazes...

    Man, I foresee a math degree for free for everyone after the tourney is over...can't Wolron give us each a degree? Isn't he a prof for mathematics?

    Re: Tournament Idea - The Most Useless

    There's not even any calculus anywhere.

    I award each of this tournament's participants an honorary certificate proving they know addition, assuming the numbers actually come out right.

    To everyone concerned about scoring: I'll be following this closely as it gets going, so feel free to post a readout of an item if you aren't sure how many points it should be worth, and I will reply as soon as I can.
