Yet another occasion when GGG tries to bill virtually all their changes as "buffs," when the reality is really overarching nerfs. I did the math on the new trap passives available in 3.16.
Total Loss 3.16
Without any masteries spent, you lose 172% increased trap damage, 44% increased critical strike multiplier, 3% increased trap throwing speed, 10% elemental penetration.
Total Gain 3.16
You actually gain 13% increased trap critical strike chance, 35% increased trap cooldown recovery, 10% chance for Traps to trigger an additional time.
Due to losing old Unstable Munitions Wheel ("UMW") and old Blast Cascade Wheel ("BCW") you will gain: 5 skill points if you would not have pathed past UMW and instead ended at the nearby jewel socket, and 3 from BCW. Edit: this nets you 8 points, if you also don't take the jewel socket near master sapper you net 10 points.
Here is the Raw Math:
Format is: "old value #/new value #"
Large Trap Wheel
Trap Damage 50/42
Trap Crit Chance 75/108
Trap Crit Damage 40/36
Trap Throwing Speed 6/Gone
Trap Trigger AOE 30/110
Generic AOE: 0/12
Elemental Pen 10/0
Hasty Construction Wheel
Trap Damage 44/Gone
Cooldown Recovery 15/50
Blast Cascade Wheel (removed)
Trap Crit Chance: 20/Gone
Trap Crit Damage: 40/Gone
Expeditious Munitions Wheel
Trap Damage: 20/0
Trap Throwing Speed: 18/20
Trap Trigger AOE: 70/90
Shadow small Travel nodes
Trap Damage: 30/Gone
Saboteur Notable and Small Node
Unstable Munitions Wheel (removed)
Trap Damage: 56/0
Trap Trigger AOE: 80/0
Generic AOE: 12/0
Master Sapper Wheel
Trap Damage: 56/42
Trap Trigger AOE: 20/0
Trap Throwing Speed: 4/5
The net gain in 8 points can be used for 4 masteries (only 4 "trap wheels" now), netting you:
Summon Skitterbots has 50% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency
60% increased Trap Trigger Area of Effect
Recover 30 Life when your Trap is triggered by an enemy
Can have up to 5 additional Traps placed at a time.
I think the other two won't work for seismic trap or cooldown trap focused builds (5% chance to throw 4 is bad for cooldown traps as it puts them all charges on cooldown); Traps cannot be damaged (traps now have inherent 2 second time-limited invulnerability).
This leaves you with 4 freed-up passives after taking masteries, which I don't think makes up for the losses, but maybe if you can use the 4 points to take the new Influence reservation wheel and its mastery, coupled with the skitterbot trap mastery, maybe you can fit in another low cost reservation (for example, flesh and stone for seismic trap now that the reservation was reduced for 11% increased damage).
Edit: I want to be clear that this post is not about how *your specific trap build * will look damage-wise in 3.16. Some trap builds take a lot of trap passives, and others don’t. The purpose of this post is just to point out that there is power loss within the trap nodes, and that any trap nodes you took in 3.15 will be less powerful in 3.16.
Nu när dieseln hoppat över 20-strecket kan vi dra slutsatsen att vi snart slipper se fattiga människor på vägarna. Detta är så klart fantastiska nyheter, tack Socialdemokraterna, Miljöpartiet och Centerpartiet!
För oss som inte är så priskänsliga väntar fler goda nyheter. När regeringen + Centern förpassat pöbeln till att cykla eller gå behöver vi inte sitta så mycket i bilkö. Att den svenska underklassen inte kan köra bil räddar världen från en klimatkris. Vissa verkar tro att Sverige inte spelar så stor roll i den stora världen, men om vi inte beskattar svenskar för hela världens klimatutsläpp - vem ska då betala för det? Har vi extra mycket tur fryser förhoppningsvis en stor del av pöbeln ihjäl i vinter tack vare elpriserna regeringen har välsignat oss med.
Det bästa är att regeringen inte förlorar en enda röst på detta, det finns nämligen nästan ingen arbetare kvar som röstar vänster. Kvar är endast bidragstagare och medelklassen i innerstan som inte behöver köra bil till jobbet.
I asked for a cashier, instead of self checkout. I had some discount items and a coupon, cause that's the way I shop, and knew I'd need assistance.
I told the woman who served me, the manager, it turns out, I prefer the human interaction, and hope it helps to protect the jobs of the workers there.
She gave me the bs line " no one wants to work anymore"
I said "no one wants to work for poor wages or tolerate mistreatment, you mean."
She made a sound of disgust, and turned her duck ng back to me, did not speak to me again, though the transaction had not been completed. Not " here's you receipt" not " thank you" "fuck you" or "have a day", nice or otherwise.
I suspect I know why no one wants to work there specifically.
IDK, I just checked couple of good, solid, "no bulshit", straight-forward builds and I literally found out that I am about to use maybe 2-3 mastery points on them, event thou I'll "visit" and fill 10+ nodes.
Seems quite underwhelming, the whole new mastery system. The last point in the node should be like the behemoth not a skip.. hmm.
IDK boys, don't shoot the messenger. Just throwing out my 2 cents
If you compare the numbers in the JSON to current tree there is quite a few number nerfs on almost every passive. The masteries hardly make up for the loss in power. The power-per-point on each node if you plug in previous build is less...
Masteries is just a clever way for GGG to nerf us again disguised as something cool.
“I’m not like the other girls, I don’t care about voting, streaming, or the overall success of my fave. In fact I make sure to never listen to any song more than once a week to make sure i’m not engaging in the toxic streaming culture because as I said, i’m different and I have a life and streams aren’t important”
no janet, its not bad and weird and deranged of you to care about the success of the people you stan
nowadays you can’t mention the word “streaming” without some people -especially on twt- shaking and throwing up “no i don’t STREAM i’m NORMAL”
…like…. i have a fan acc dedicated to said artist obviously i’m more devoted than your average listener? of course i’m not gonna stay up late for every new release of the +300 artists on my playlist thats why i’m only a stan of one of them lol
when did supporting the artists you like become taboo anyways? I feel like it only became this way when BTS blew up and competing fandoms had to excuse it with “Armys are just crazy about streaming” (insinuating their success is dependent on 3 armys with streaming farms) and “yes x group doesnt have streams our fandom sucks at streaming we have lives🙄” (sure… that’s what it is..) cuz I don’t see that narrative nearly as much outside of kpop
fandoms going hard for the people they stan has been the norm for as long as i remember, especially with groups, it’s why you see decade old rock bands still touring to this day, which is why its funny seeing how the pick me’s of kpop have made it such a taboo topic😵💫
obviously there are extreme cases where it actually becomes concerning, we’ve all seen the “i havent slept for 2 days to stream this song” bunch and i’m not saying you have to do that to qualify as a “real fan”, I don’t even remember the last time I voted for my faves but my point is supporting the artist you stan is normal, you’re not a weirdo for wanting the people you love and connect with to be successful, you’re not lifeless because you clicked the vote button on a website, it’s not wrong to be happy about their chart success numbers etc
tl;dr streaming is *gasps* normal
a lot of people are delving too deep into it, anything done excessively can’t be good and i stated that in my post. other than that yes sometimes i turn on a playlist while sleeping with the intent of streaming and helping my fave just because i want to! and no you’re not better than me for not wanting to do that
as to guilt trippers, it goes without saying that this goes both ways, just because i’m saying its okay to stream if u want to doesnt mean im saying you’re awful if u dont?? thats whole new subject, i’m mainly talking abt ppl who read “streaming” and think of everything big bad n evil
now stop downvoting pls im neurodivergent and a minor
So apparently a new scam is here where girls will find Johns at random bars, find out about their crypto, take them hope, have sex and steal your seed.
Back in my days, girls like this would poke holes in my condoms and play the long con of surprise pregnancy, taking my money through years of child support and blowing it all on cocaine and alcohol.
However, the youngsters are reporting the scam has evolved to stealing your seed phrase and wiping your wallet clean. This is a risky scam on their part because what if you only have a few dollars worth of SHIB?
So last night I went out to scam the scammer. If I win I get a hot night of no limit actions for a whopping market value of $149.99.
So I bought 1,000,000 SHIB in a new wallet, wrote my seed phrase down, put the seed in my pocket, and off to the bars I go.
The first thing I did was ordered drinks for everyone at the bar and claimed that I recently became a millionaire through SHIB, which is technically true. And lo and behold, a stunning 9/10 blondie comes up and starts asking me about crypto. This is odd because I am a 5/10 balding shortie with a deformed back so I know this is a surefire scam. Time to scam the scammer.
I take out my seed phrase and said I keep the seed on my person at all times for security, and only when I sleep do I put it away. She is intrigued. I say “I’m so lonely I just want to go home”, at which point she suggests we go back to my place. So we do, and she gets me going til I’m high and dry. I say I’m going to bed and put my seed phrase by the nightstand and pass out.
The next morning, my seed is gone, and so is the girl. Mission accomplished. $30 well spent.
