In Topic: Past time for Alliances

28 March 2013 - 07:22 PM

on JQ we have already done this.  My guild belongs to two different alliances.  The Slay guild has been inviting people and holding smal fun events like jumping puzzles with gold going to 1,2 and 3 place.  Also the Greater Broney alliance is a guild formed for just this reason.  It sure doesn't take the place of a true alliance and not having an alliance chat sucks but it has helped us until Anet adds alliances.

In Topic: Do 2x Force or 2x Accuraccy Stack?

Ok cool that is the way I read it too.  But from what I am reading if I use a sigil of force on main hand and a sigle of accurace on the other then I would recieve the benifit of both sigils?

I always heard that they were tombs...even though much of the stuff was never recorded, its known that they were pillaged over the years.  now its just a bunch of rock with a few clues to their original purpose.

I'd be curious to see the show sometime...i never heard the battery idea before.  I can see how static from the high winds could generate some voltage in the copper...not sure how they would convert that into something useful like current.

i think static electricity on a large amount of copper would act more like a capacitor than a battery.  like, there would be no way to control how fast the charge moves.  It would just zap whatever when it got close enough with a path to the ground. and then have no charge (until the wind built it back up again).  During a storm it would be crazy though...

The only thing i could find was that Limestone, which covered a lot of the pyramids, not only looks good but is semi-conductive because of its calcium carbonate (which deteriorate over time).  Why would they want an electrical charge on a giant pointy rock is beyond me.

Maybe the pyramids were built for tourism, and the electricity generated was for escalators for the old or young people who don't feel like walking up. Maybe that's why the men shaved their heads...so their hair wouldn't stand up straight when they rode the escalator.


Actually using the bagdad battery as an example if there was a conductor like copper collecting static electricity and they had a whole ton of bagdad batteries or a giant one you could collect that electricity and store it in a bagdad battery type.  The collection side would be highly unstable but it could work.

That being said... Really?  My vote is for tombs until some science proves other wise.  To me saying that aliens or any of the other theories are true is no different than the religious right that refuses to allow science into their way of thinking.  There has to be a balance of both imo

An easy way to figure out accuracy is to get your crit chance otherwise to 90%, then use two Sigils of Accuracy and see if every attack you make crits.

Testing force would be a little more difficult, but not impossible, I imagine.

Even if you could stack two of them, why would you? You'd probably be better off saving that 5% crit chance/damage and getting an on crit sigil or something else.


I think that is what he is asking.  I have the same question.  If I am duel wielding and use two sigl of force or two of accuracy do they stack.  gwbuildcraft I think is the site that says they do not stack when you try to put them in.

I agree.  I think most of the moans are coming from people who have the old "instant gratification" mindset and can't wait for things to develop.  I understand the not wanting to wait and when you blast through the content they give you in 2-3 hours you then have to wait for the next patch.  It reminds me of mid-season season finale for tv shows they are doing now.  It frustrates the hell out of me but yet I feel so rewarded when they show finally kicks up again.  This is how I have been looking at the new story lines.

In short I like it and keep it up.  I wouldn't mind more substantial updates though.  If all of were like this last one I really wouldn't have anything to complain about.
