i haven't seen my gf in a while, got a massive migraine, sleep deprived, lack of food and water, grumpy and i can't find my damn gazerman outfit and there isn't enough bug spray in the world for the first few weeks. running up the stairs for hours and getting stuck, bumping my face in walls, getting drenched in old bogwater, having some fool making wendigo noises in my ear. and that's all before its even noon.

how do you think i'm feeling...huh?

pretty great !

Zantai is the worst. He forces us to print and frame pictures of him and place them within sight at all times.



Would you believe me if I told you he's a lil weird?

The upside? His best friend is David Hasselhoff and once a month he lets us call and have a chat with the 'hoff! Here's a pic David sent me the last time I called him.



I know what you're thinking... yes, the 'hoff usually uses two phones at once. One to yell at me and tell me to quit calling him and the other to selfie himself yelling at me to quit calling.

Here's a pic that Zantai and the 'hoff sent us to show us how much more fun they were having than us



As you can see, testing is going quite well.

Min-maxing means the art of perfecting a build into the very little details. This is required for builds on the higher crucible levels.

This is done by looking for the minimum or maximum values of attributes and finding the perfect combination of gear, skills, enhancements & devotions.

Example:
Resistance is capped at 80%. A given char may have due a combination of both fire and elemental resistance on gear 95%. 15% of this is thus wasted, and it's stat value might be better used elsewhere. A min maxer might find a different combo of gear etc that sets him at 83% and 100 oa.

10.8 (92% uptime) cooldown. Add Time Dilation (-6 seconds CD every 9.6 seconds) on top and you have a very short window when anything is on cooldown.
33% CDR + TD will enable perma overguard. Colossal Bulwark will make that possible without Star Pact, which is quite exciting.

HOW IS TESTING GOING?

are you allowed to see your family? No.

are you allowed to sleep and/or drink/eat? Sometimes after I keel over in a faint from lack of food.

is it easier to work under supervision of gazerman, zantai or evilmedierra? Gazerman is the worst - that big eye peering over your shoulder all the time. Zantai's a close second mind you.

do you have to fight through dungeons? and in the game? are you really testing the expansion or are you secretly being prepared to settle mars? Sworn to secrecy, but these moon boots are killing me.
