|A Christmas present of sorts!
||[Dec. 24th, 2007|06:04 pm]
First, feel free to skip to the update but I can't help but express some happiness concerning RL at present! I'm really pumped up over how this past season went! Semester is finally done, back at home again, and on my first real break in over a year! I haven't had any time to myself since around last winter break. This semester was also the most difficult one thus far, and despite feeling like I slacked more this semester than any other one I still (somehow) managed to score three 4.0s... As well as scoring two independent contractor jobs and an internship, all of which related to my major! Shiny resume go!
Although, next semester doesn't look so fun... I'll be taking the hardest class offered at the college, requiring an average of 12 hours of time spent outside of class meeting and working with your assigned group each week. This is on top of the normal 7 hours of class we'll have each week, and all of it is part of just one class. Add in the 4 other classes I'll be taking next semester and it just doesn't look fun. :(
Anyway, I just had to get some of that off of my chest. Back to the topic of the update!
I'm on my usual vampire schedule already where I'm going to sleep at around 6-8 AM and waking up at 1-5 PM... So it being about 3 AM now with the Christmas Eve festivities long over and the alcohol wearing off, I thought I'd put together a little update as a sort of 'present'! Or well, at the very least just as something informative. I'm just covering one topic in this update but it's something that comes up really often on the topic of deciding WS gear builds. The information in this post should help a great deal in assisting your decision as far as how to best optimize your WS gear for any job; especially jobs that use multi-hit WS.
However, much of what I cover has already been covered by billions of others, billions of times, so there isn't much new to see other than some equations if you're already rather knowledgeable of the endgame workings!
By the end of this post you should be able to understand, recreate, and manipulate the data in this table if you can't already:
As well as understanding how these numbers influence your decisions for WS gear. If you already feel you know enough about this stuff, then entertain yourself by finding mistakes I make!
Or, you could just skip to the end to find my take on what this all means as far as deciding what WS gear is best to wear.
Or, if you don't understand/don't feel like trying to do this just ask me what situation you want to know the numbers for and I'll do it for you.
Or, if it's a well-earned Xmas break and you feel like flipping the bird at anything involving math, come back to read this some other day! (I know this explains how I feel, but forced myself through this anyway!)
Silly FF stuff aside:
Happy Holidays everyone! :) Best wishes, and a Happy New Years as well!
