Snapshotting

It really grinds my gears when people are smug about grammar and then don't know what they are talking about.
@ucsarge
I was snapshotting with a level 21 raise zombie / lvl 3 empower / +1 tabula / montreguls and chobber / perfect sidhebreath and my zombies would still insta die to certain invaders / bosses. Summoners are going to be trash after they remove snapshotting. Sure you're going to have people saying they don't snapshot and they're good, but it takes them probably 2-3 times longer to clear a map and their summons die way more frequently. I can't see GGG removing snapshotting without buffing summoner's in some kind of way but if they don't.....RIP summoners. At least I sold all my gear a couple weeks ago in anticipation of this =p

I'm worried about summoners because those summoning uniques have such insane drawbacks. Snapshotting allowed them to bypass those outrageous drawbacks, and now that they won't be able to do that, I'm wondering what former snapshotters are going to do? Reroll? lol

Hi Mark,

In what ways are you planning on balancing gems once snapshot has been removed.

I have a level 89 in ambush that I use a few snapshots for. I use Montreguls grasp to snapshot 4 big zombies, and then Chober chaber when I snapshot 5 smaller zombies, I also use the unique Paua amulet when snapshotting to help buff my minions. I'm worried though that doing endgame content with either 9 small zombies or only 4 big zombies, the zombies would die very often and not be very effective to kill things making it very unsafe for me. After snapshot is removed, would some gems like Raise Zombie be looked at for a potential buff, maybe only at higher levels or something?


What aura's/passives do you use? On my summoner, I do not snapshot and my zombies very rarely ever die in lvl 78 maps (haven't done Atziri). I haven't played the summoner in a few weeks, but I think their life was >10,000 (+2 helm). With the life leech and regen from the tree plus Vitality, they are very durable. The only trouble with no snapshotting for summoners is the lack of sockets because summoners use a ton of skills.


Actually I forgot I use the unique summoner helmet to snapshot too, I used to use a +2 minion helmet when I finished snapshot, but now I use a helmet with lots of rarity for MF but no +1 or +2 to minion gems. Since I cast my zombies from my helmet I can only use 3 supports. So I use RZ - Faster Attacks - Multistrike - Minion Damage. My auras are Clarity, Purity of Elements, Hatred and Vitality. I've experimented with Haste aura in the past, but I don't have room for it now.

This article was written by Nick, Brian, and I.


"This article was written by me" - correct.
"This article was written by I" - incorrect.
The presence of the other names doesn't change which pronoun is used.
Were it phrased such that we were the subject of the sentence, it would be "Nick, Brian and I wrote the article".

http://www.elearnenglishlanguage.com/blog/english-mistakes/i-vs-me/

Putting the pronoun at the end of the list is not a hard grammatical rule, but a common convention*, and whether it applies in certain circumstances changes depending who you ask - I was taught that it applies specifically to "I" because that sounds weirder coming first in a list.

*This is at least my understanding, and certainly seems to be born out by some breif internet research on the matter.


Actually, I believe it is:

"This article was written by myself, Brian and Nick."

Or:

"This article was written by Brian, Nick and myself."

The convention of the placement of the pronoun stems from the word ordering of classical Latin where word order relates emphasis rather than meaning. Thus:

"This article was written by Brian, Nick and I"

...is still correct and preferable IMO.

EDIT: It is quite interesting that "Nick, Brian and I wrote the article" does not change the subject nor the predicate. Ask yourself what is being predicated of what subject? Furthermore, if the linked article that you are going by is correct, then 'I' is a pronoun that performs the action of the verb 'write'. 'Me', on the other hand 'is an object pronoun, which means that it refers to the person that the action of a verb is being done to'. The verb here being 'write'...
This time I am super serial...

Righteous Fire:

By design, Righteous Fire is meant to persist, whether or not you lose the skill. The theme of the skill is that you burn to death! As a result, if you unsocket the Righteous Fire gem, the effect will persist, but will no longer update with changes to support gems as there's no skill gem for them to support. However, if you then make changes to your gear or passives that would affect the skill, it will still detect this and change its effectiveness accordingly. If you resocket the Righteous Fire gem in the same slot, it will begin checking the support gems again, and change the effect to match.


So for Righteous Fire which part of it will be fixed? The post to me was quite unclear in that regard.

From my understanding of extreme RF snapshotting, it involves low life Pain Attunement 2 Redbeaks, plus the switching of gear such as a 6L Carcass to boost the damage and then switching back to your normal armour.

Which part or parts are going to be fixed?

EDIT: OK I read it again (reading comprehension pro here). So my conclusion is that none of it would work anymore for RF?
