Resources of the Mechromancer Variety


("That Strange One") #21

[quote=“Gulfwulf, post:19, topic:82954”]Aw, you’re just saying that. It may be tomorrow before I do because I’ll be pretty busy this afternoon. I’ll let you know when I do get it ported over though. I saw I_gabrielcruz’s build and figured we needed the build list ported over as well.[/quote]I only type the truth! And there’s no rush on getting it sorted; how long did it take me to fully complete the OP, after all? /whistles not-so-innocently

[quote=“kenloe, post:20, topic:82954, full:true”]There a bug-or-something with any of the old forum pages…only pg 1 will load; clicking either the pg number or the ‘next’ to go to pg 2 or beyond tosses up a ‘URL not found’ error.

EDIT - the Interspersed Outburst link is dead as well.[/quote]Thanks for bring that to my attention. I knew about Shrimpling’s thread (There’s a few others like that as well, unfortunately, although I am attempting a couple of things before potentially removing them for good), but not about the page errors. That does make things somewhat awkward; I wonder if we should just import everything we have over, to stop the risk of losing more threads in the future.

I think that’s a good idea seeing as how the old forum has been archived and is breaking links.


("That Strange One") #23

I’m leaning more and more towards it myself; NGL, I’m disappointed that we probably have lost some good resources already.

I think Poka’s still around on Twitter so I could ask him if he could possibly transfer over Gaige’s skills thread, same with Neff and his one about DT. If not I’ll import some myself and give the OP’s full credit.


(Cast Iron Chef) #24

Here you go, @Vycksta.


("That Strange One") #25

Consider the OP edited to include your thread!

I have spoken to Poka RE: the DDD thread and he said he’d do the import; hopefully that’ll be reposted soon.


(Cast Iron Chef) #26

Cool. I’ll add it to build list once it’s ported over.

It’s no problem Neff, and thank you for these links. I’ll be sure to check them over tomorrow (The netbook is being an absolute pain as I type this) and add them in accordingly.

Note to self: speak to Poka again RE: transferring his threads over.


(Kwisatz Haderach) #31

Would it be okay if I ported over [DDD] Gaige’s skills for you! from the old forum? I would of course give full credit to pokapoka, since it is his Guide. Also, I noticed that some of the links in the guide are broken and would not work even of I tried to fix the URL :confounded:

I reckon it’ll be alright, as Poka’s always been a decent person, but I’ll send him a message on Twitter to make sure that it’s absolutely okay and I’ll let you know. I remember discovering that Nisha’s resources thread had been transferred over without my being asked first and I would have appreciated that instead of jumping the gun and assuming it’s alright. Guess that’s my penchant for basic manners speaking.

As for those broken links, I’ll get them removed ASAP. I’ve tried everything I could to preserve them and it’s time to give up.


(Kwisatz Haderach) #33

Ok. If you manage to get in contact with Poka and get his consent, please let me know. I just figured it would probably be a good idea for someone to port over his [DDD] Gaige’s skills for you! thread before something happens to the old forum and it is no longer available. Thanks!

("That Strange One") #34

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.


("That Strange One") #35

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!


(Cast Iron Chef) #36

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


(Kwisatz Haderach) #37

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:

[quote=“Gulfwulf, post:36, topic:82954, full:true”]Provide me links and I can get 'em ported over.[/quote]I figured I could count on you! Have these three threads to begin with; when you’re done post the links here so I’m assured of getting them and I’ll make the changes!

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:


(Kwisatz Haderach) #39

@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!


(Varzy) #41

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.
