Resources of the Mechromancer Variety

I fully agree with what you’re saying; we have already lost a chunk of informative threads to whatever issues are plaguing the old forum and to lose more would absolutely suck. In regards to contacting Poka I sent him a message as soon as I posted my last reply to you and I haven’t heard back yet. Don’t worry, I’ll keep trying; I want to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Update the 703rd: letting the masses know that Poka has given permission for Poisd2Strike to port across the DDD Skills thread. In time the ideal would be to get every thread over from the old forums to this one, mainly to stop the risk of needlessly losing more to issues that cannot be resolved. If there’s anybody who would be interested in helping out with that, please let yourselves known!

Provide me links and I can get 'em ported over.

Ok. Thanks for getting in contact with Poka! I will work on porting Poka’s original [DDD] Gaige’s skills for you! thread over this weekend. I hope to have it done sometime Sunday or Monday at the very latest. I had arthroscopic shoulder surgery on 10/21 and am still not fully recovered. I will include everything in the original thread (content, formatting and all) with 2 exceptions: any currently broken links will not be ported over (since they don’t work anyway) and the part near the bottom where Poka mentions he will continue to update the thread will not be included. However, I will fully credit Poka for the content and also include a hyperlink to the original thread in the old forum. If working hyperlinks can be found for the currently broken links in Poka’s old thread, I will update the new thread accordingly with the working hyperlinks. :blush:

Don’t feel under any pressure, either; your shoulder recovery takes priority and if it plays up over the weekend it’s not a problem. As I’ve just said to Gulfwulf post the link whenever it’s done and I can edit the OP accordingly. :slight_smile:

@Vycksta, I finished porting Poka’s original Guide to the new forum. The thread can be found here:

Based upon the 10/29/2015 patch, some changes will probably need to be made to the rating of some of Gaige’s skills. I will rely on more experienced Gaige players to reach a general consensus and make the changes accordingly based upon their input. :blush:

You’ve done an excellent job for Mechromancers everywhere today! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, either, with the updates to some of her skills.

Again, brilliant work in porting this over. I’ll see about adding it to the OP the second this post goes through!

Can someone give a quick summary of the changes to Gaige’s skills? Or point me to a place where they’re listed. I can’t locate them and I’m honestly pretty interested in LBT now that the weaker skills may have been improved.

0verload’s thread contains information about the improvements to the damage of certain skills, while I found a YouTube video by Joltzdude139 that likely lists the changes in brief, but I haven’t personally checked for myself, nor did I find anything that straight up listed what happened last week.

Here’s the SLF port.

I’ve updated the OP to reflect that. Nice work, and I hope you didn’t get too much of a headache!

My mouse is spazzing out on me: it’s double clicking when I single click, so I’m going to wait until I get a new one before I work on anything else. I’ll get the COM guide ported over unless @Poisd2Strike gets to it before I do.

There are two good threads that could be ported over, if Im not asking too much: the IO build, now that it got buffed and a hybrid build for the peak, as we have none focused in it right now.

Also, thanks for all the work!

Let me guess - it’s the mouse on the left, isn’t it?

I don’t mind tackling that once I’m done with Cykotr0n’s build.

Edit: Check that - it seems to be gone. Did anyone snag a copy?

Edit 2: I’ll be including IO in the level 72 of Cykotr0n’s build, and there is already some post-update info on the boosts it received.

Ayup. It’s really, really, really annoying. I just ordered another one, so I should be good to go sometime next week.

Success!

I used the internet archive’s Way Back Machine to snag copies of the old forum posts before they all disappeared in the great switcheroo. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that earlier.

Anyway, if anyone else needs to grab content from a deadlink, go to https://web.archive.org/ It looks like the last snapshot of the oldforums before GBX archived them was March 31st 2015.

I now have versions of the Mythbusters Fibber and original Interspersed Outburst posts stored locally, so I can work on those in due course.

I think this could now be removed, DFA has been buffed and it’s now totally viable

I would say you’re welcome, but all I do is take on board everyone’s advice and suggestions and make the necessary changes. The likes of Gulfwulf and VaultHunter101, though, have been instrumental in helping out; they should take the credit more than I.

[quote=“Chuck80, post:51, topic:82954”]I think this could now be removed, DFA has been buffed and it’s now totally viable[/quote]That is a very valid point; keeping it up there for as long as I have shows my lack of perception. I’ll get to removing it as soon as this post goes through.

Will start work on the Interspersed Outburst (with updated info) next, unless someone else has already started on it?
