Trait: 25 % chance to summon a Anicent Horror on death

Lets discuss it since it is brutal effective for CPU.

How I love people with these kinds opening posts for threads!
You could’ve shown a good example with proper structure, paragraphs, data, numbers, observations as evidence of this “brutal effective” but - alas…

On the positive side, I’ll continue in your vein - nothing brutal to discuss, move along.

We got pretty much everything to discuss lol

In AI teams I’ve seen it spawn around 1000 times (gut feeling) in around 4000 battles (gut feeling). Doing the math this seems to be remarkably close to a 25% spawn chance. :smile:

I should ask wise Eika forgiveness, they were right - the trait is pretty much brutal for CPU. Devs should be chained to their workstations, plain bread and water and no potty beaks until they make things right.
I bow my head in shame to better see details below…

Sarcasm aside, just a little project while riding a train - E5 in Karakoth. Sample size is small (larger would be better) but it’ll do for rough approximation; and, for obvious reasons, I’m not doing resurrection rates for player’s side.

I’ve said it in the past, I’m saying it now and I will say it in the future - not only it does not hurt but it should be normal practice to take a pen, a piece of paper and do your due diligence before even looking at keyboard to type this kind of topics, threads and posts. If somebody wants to make picnic (like, for example, the OP at least seemed to) they should take certain care of the food instead of just setting empty plates and inviting others to eat.

Bugs do happen, errors take place, the issue is serious to tackle…maybe I’m wrong, who knows, but it seems important to have something palpable to hold on to whenever possible; taking the boy who cried wolf for a role model hardly helps credibility.

I hate the bandit summon. It seems like it’s a 90% chance in PVP and Guild Wars Ds. I thought they said it was a bug and fixed it. But it is back to what it used to be.
