2023.06.11 00:22 Nihlus11 Respect Minimum Tarnished (Elden Ring)

The Tarnished


The Tarnished were a group of warriors of the demigod Godfrey who, after their leader conquered all of the Lands Between for his master, were stripped of the golden grace of the Erdtree and banished from the Lands Between long ago. In the aftermath of the destruction of the Elden Ring and the Shattering war waged between the God-Queen Marika's children, the Tarnished were revived from the dead, had their grace restored, and were called back to restore order to the lands by mending the Elden Ring, crowning a new Elden Lord, and crushing all who would stop them underfoot. Among these legendary champions was one lowly Tarnished of no renown, who would be chosen by a mysterious woman named Melina as her own candidate for the throne. With the aid of her ability to increase their strength, as well as various other companions along the way, this Tarnished set out to complete their quest.

Thread purpose

I was reluctant to make this thread, as I think using blank slate RPG protagonists is a bad idea for battleboarding in general. They basically don't have concrete abilities or achievements. However I think there's some value in at least establishing bare minimums. This thread will list feats that the Tarnished can perform in the early game (with one or two exceptions, nothing in this thread comes from past the first three zones), near-regardless of build (no stat requirements higher than 21 in a game where most start at 12, the soft-cap is 60, and the hard-cap 99). I will mostly be listing animations, and ignoring mechanical stats where they are obviously nonsensical (e.g. one object having a higher weight than another despite them being the same material and its model being several dozen times less voluminous). Because of this intended purpose, no attempt will be made to quantify how much stronger the Tarnished gets over time, how they scale to the bosses, what late spells, weapons, and skills imply about their power, and so on. I'm not saying those things don't matter, they're just not what this thread is about.

General Notes

  • I have downloaded all of Elden Ring's enemy character and weapon models and placed them in Meshmixer at x0.001 scale (so a millimeter is a meter). All measurements using them are accurate. The game runs at 60 FPS, and some of my example videos are at that rate as well, but others are at 30. You'll be able to see a timer to indicate which is which.
  • Unlike in my prior Elden Ring threads, I don't have the exact models for the player's weapons downloaded. However, as many of the player's weapons are literally just scaled-down version of boss ones (which I do have), this is easily solved by simply finding the weapons' lengths and scaling them down proportionally. There is only one weapon that I flat-out do not have any model for, which I believe I measured adequately based on images. A Tarnished-sized NPC is presented next to the scaled-down weapon models for sanity checks.
  • Lordsworn Knights are 2.3 meters/7'6 tall (including boots and helmet) and Lordsworn Soldiers are 2.13 meters/7'0 tall. Both enemy types are broadly built, heavily armored, carrying huge weapons, and at least many dozen of times stronger than any human. Just to give some context to feats involving them getting launched.
  • Whenever I refer to something's mass, I'm usually just multiplying the measured volume by the density of steel (7,850 kg/m3). Whenever I refer to a slashing strike's energy, I'm running the velocity through the kinetic energy formula and assuming 2/3 of the measured mass behind the strike. This assumption is based on this video which got 2/3 to 1/1 effective mass on measured stick strikes (timestamps 14:18 and 38:10) and this study (page 99) which calculated that for an untapered rod, effective mass would be 1/4 for a strike at the tip and over 3/4 at a third of the length down from the tip (my "cutting point"). Neither of these will line up 100% with a tapered sword blade or polearm head (the effective mass is bigger the closer the impact point is to the center of mass, which is further from the tip on a tapered object; so the polearms should actually do a bit better and the swords a bit worse), but the overall shape should be close enough to use the low-end from these with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Especially since I'm already entirely excluding the hilts and hafts in measurements (I'm conservatively assuming that they're not solid metal and thus that their weights are negligible).
  • Weapon categories reuse most of the same animations, so you can apply my weapon swing calculations to any in that category. The ones that are obviously and visibly heavier than the ones I chose to use (e.g. Greataxe vs Longhaft Axe) would obviously get you higher results.
  • Some basic context for the strikes: Alan Williams' "Knight and the Blast Furnace" chapter 9.4 quotes tests measuring a bunch of standard human axe and sword strikes at 60 to 130 joules (~95 average), and the chapter notes that an exceptionally strong man with a two-hander might be able to do somewhat over 200 joules. The masses of the swords and axes used in the tests are not given, though it should be noted that most swords are around 1 kg. Williams also never specifies if those strikes were with one or two hands, but I assume two.
With all that said:

General Capabilities:

Aside from the purely mechanical conceits of questionable AI and iframes (mentioned later), the Tarnished's successes are largely down to a few factors that exist in-universe but aren't really quantified outside of gameplay. But because of how important they are, I will note their existence regardless.
  • Immortality. The premise of the Tarnished is that they can regenerate from any death good-as-new by dissolving into particles, and do the same thing over and over again, as many times as needed to win. This is first demonstrated by an unavoidable scripted death followed by a cutscene during the tutorial. In-universe this ability is granted by Marika's "grace", with her intent being that the Tarnished would all grow stronger over their many deaths. There is a limit to the number of times they can revive, as other Tarnished simply stay dead when killed and some reference having lost the privilege of grace in their dialogue. Where said limit lies exactly is unclear.
  • Healing. The Tarnished is able to regenerate from wounds mid-battle in a variety of ways, most notably by using flasks of "crimson tears" which are fueled by the Erdtree's life-giving magic. Their supply of flasks is replenished after every death and whenever they rest at a Site of Grace. They can progressively improve their flasks' healing abilities by infusing them with Erdtree sap and carry up to fourteen of them at a time.
  • Magical weapon upgrades. From literally the second checkpoint after the tutorial, the Tarnished is given "smithing stones" to enhance all of their weapons, and they subsequently drop from many of the game's enemies in addition to being easily found in mines and armories throughout the Lands Between. The ones mined nearer to the Erdtree{s} create stronger weapons than the ones mined in other regions, and glow different colors to indicate such. The Tarnished can also infuse any weapon with any other damage type inherently as long as they have the requisite whetstone (e.g., an axe that always also lights people on fire).
  • Spirit Summons. The Tarnished is capable of casting spells that summon spirit warriors to aid them against particularly tough foes. Some of them are spirits of legendary warriors in their own right, and can be further boosted by imbuing them with magic flowers. Aside from immunity to certain damage types like poison and respawning when they 'die', the spirit warriors largely function like their physical selves.
  • Talismans. The Tarnished can carry several talismans at a time that each provide boosts to their power (one example of such), and occasionally grant other abilities.


While their travel speed is unremarkable (they use a horse for long distance travel after all), the Tarnished can and will dodge tons of things in-game that should logically be very fast. However the way this works is through a mechanical abstraction: attacks are often slower than they would be in reality, and "dodging" them is a matter of activating iframes so they phase through your body, rather than really moving out of the way (standard medium dodge has 0.43 seconds of iframes that start on the first frame, 0.26 seconds of recovery frames, and is very spammable). This is obviously meant to represent some level of superhuman dodge speed, but the degree to which it is abstracted makes it hard to put any hard numbers on. Regardless, I'll list some examples of dodgeable projectiles:


** The door has dimensions of 200 x 410 x ~40 cm, and would mass over 25 tons at the density of steel. It is not clear how much of it is hollow, however.
** Alexander has a volume of ~3 m3 without his arms and is made of ceramic, rock, and human corpses. He should mass over 3 tons (he's probably denser than a human body), making this comparable to batting a large truck.
** Using this bow is noted to take "monstrous strength" to loose "arrows the size of spears." The dimensions of the arrows, especially the thickness and wideness of the heads, back up the text and likely place their mass far beyond that of a typical ballista bolt.
  • Can launch their arrows with what appear to be vapor cones. (Through and Through)
  • Can "parry" many enemies and bosses; unlike in some other games this "parry" is in fact just directly pushing against the enemy's strike, halting the momentum of the fast-moving weapon and launching it in another direction while the Tarnished remains still. The impact will also stagger or knock down the enemy in question. Notable examples of this in the early zones include:
** Parries Leonine Misbegotten, even though these parryable animations have them swinging 225 kg blades at 155 m/s at the cutting point (near two megajoules).
** Parries Night's Cavalry, with enough force to not only arrest the strike's momentum, but knock the ten-foot heavily-armored knights off of their mounts.
** Parries Crucible Knights.
** Parries Margit the Fell.
** Parries Erdtree Burial Watchdogs.
** Parries Tree Sentinels.
  • Utility
The Tarnished right out of the gate can near-instantly learn a lot of useful utility spells with bottom of the barrel stat requirements. These include:
The Tarnished can learn many "skills" throughout the game, which take the form of both magic spells and physical martial arts. These are distinguished from incantations, sorceries, and weapon-bound skills by the fact that any Tarnished can learn and use them without stat requirements (though they still benefit from higher damage with higher stats). There are about a hundred in the game, but here are some of the more notable early ones:

2023.06.11 00:20 Kir-ius Is power levelling dead? Why the long exp grind?

In the other Diablo games you could get to max super quick by having high level friends run you through high level content for mega exp.
Now with scaling worlds, it expects you to be contribute equally to the damage and exp given as if you're doing that same content without modifiers?
IE. I'm 54, had a high level friend run me through the T3 capstone, then got carried through 3 dungeons at T4 where the enemies had 22 levels on me and I just gained a single level.
Tried another run where two of us started brand new classes to try out and another high level friend did a stronghold and 2 dungeons while we basically followed behind to leech exp. I just gained 5 levels. Even in D3 when you had one person hard carrying in a place where your character shouldn't be, you'd get mega level ups and would have expected to be much higher.
Quick search online I found:
When fighting monsters outside of your own character's level range, the following multipliers apply:
Monster is 1 level above character: +15%
Monster is 2 levels above character: +20%
Monster is 3 or more levels above character: +25%
Which means you get literally no bonus for having an enemy at level 45 vs level 4 if you started at level 1.
Was power levelling that bad for the game especially if you want to play with friends to get caught up? Or if you lost a HC character and want to get back to where you were? Or not having to go through the tedious grind to level up alts? Getting 1-100 is already excessive on its' own.
From another article
Diablo 4 associate game director Joseph Piepiora has revealed that it will take over 150 hours to grind to level 100 in the upcoming action role playing game.
“Reaching level 100 will take 150+ hours for the average player experience,” replied Piepiora to a fan on Twitter, confirming the inevitable and significant time sink that Diablo 4 will represent when it launches on June 6 later this year.
Earlier this month the developer also revealed that it would take around 80 hours to complete each season’s battle pass, which will feature both a free, and paid premium track featuring more cosmetic rewards.
From these stats, it's not even close to reasonable for a person to get to max level within a season's time to complete the pass. Sure, the world race guys did it in less than 150h, but a lot were doing tedious braindead repetitive exp farm at specific locations for hours on end, not natural or meaningful gameplay at all.

2023.06.11 00:20 UncommonProdigyz WIBTA If I faked being friends with a bunch of people in school after I realized they were using me and decide to block them on the last day of school?

(BTW I never post on reddit, this is a first time and probably a one time thing for me. Sorry for any mistakes.)
I hate these people, a lot. I thought it would be nice to have a few friends but when I found out they were using me I had no words. "Are they using you for money? A ride to school?" No—but for answers and help on work that a little kid could do. It's annoying.
The worst part is i'm to much of a people pleaser to even say no when they ask for help on the work.
Here are some things they ask and my actual response vs. what I wanted to say:
q: "What does this word mean?" a: "Oh that means ______" (a: You seriously couldn't look it up? The internet is literally right in-front of you. I'm not a personal dictionary.)
q: "Wait can you please explain this to me? I'm so dumb I don't know this!" a: "Omg no your not dumb! All you have to do is _______" (a: Yes, you are. The teacher JUST explained this but you were to busy on your phone and never paying attention.)
q: "Can I see your answer for question__?" a: "Yea of course! Just change up to words if you copy it." (a: No.)
I don't usually get upset when people ask me questions but this stuff is so simple even a child could do it. They ask me these questions as if the teacher doesn't exist.
Not to mention they are also actual idiots. While most people in high-school have an average or high gpa, these fools are literally at a 1.0 and failing more than 3 classes. They all have summer school but me.
They call me the "smart friend" or the "nerd." Not to mention I have dyscalculia (Dyslexia in math) yet my math grade is higher than all of theirs. Slightly embarrassing?
I have other reasons for me wanting to block them, they have talked about me behind my back, they leave me to go vap3 in the bathrooms because its "cool" and they'll call me weird or boring when I don't do that stuff.
I don't care that they do it but why talk about it like its the only thing you do.
I was sitting in class with them when they left out of nowhere to go to the bathroom, and a guy behind me asks, "They left you again?" It was the fact he said "again" because he knew that this happened to me often.
I question why I still hangout with them and let them talk down on me or use me for answers. It's not like somebody is gonna stop me from leaving them but I need to confront before I do but have no idea how.
I get it, nothings wrong with asking for help/helping your friend out once in awhile but they are like little toddlers who cant even do human daily functions.
I've even had random kids message me for answers because they were told "I know everything."
At this point i'm just trying to get finals over with and leave this school asap..

2023.06.11 00:19 j_ram2803 [Breeds] Small recommendation for a Latin American university student!

**Introduction** 1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs? * This is not my first dog. I've had one before for 9 years. It was a female Boston Terrier. 2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a [reputable breeder]( http://ownresponsibly.blogspot.com/2011/07/identifying-reputable-breeder.html)? * Wouldn't mind any of the two but it's not my concern currently, just want to know what breeds fit my situation the best 3) Describe your ideal dog. * As I currently live in an apartment I would like a dog that isn't very big. Also, maybe one that doesn't have lots of energy as the apartment is big but obviously not as much as a house with a yard etc etc (so maybe not a labrador or a golden retrieved). In the past, we've had better experiences with female dogs. A dog which has short hair would be great as we don't want to brush and vacuum everyday. Also a smart dogs is a big extra 4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why? * Discussing with my family a pitbull has come into the option pool but we're not set on it, any recommendations are okay! 5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do? * Nothing especial. Learning how to sit, stop, stop barking and normal house stuff, nothing about acrobatics or special movements lol 6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport? * No **Care Commitments** 7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day? * Currently I live with my family so each of us can devote time for it. I don't have an specific number but throughout the day there will be someone looking after it be it me or someone else. 8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park? * We have a dog park just across street so there's that. I'm thinking taking it out at least 2 times a day and also any play we can do at the apartment too 9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly? * Yes, we've done all that before **Personal Preferences** 10) What size dog are you looking for? * Small to medium 11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle? * 0 barking, we want a dog that is quiet. It doesn't mean that it can't be energetic but barking is a deal breaker. Shredding and barking is okay in minimal amounts 12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area? * It's not a priority. We don't mind walking the dog with a leash but if it's able the run around a place like that and be okay then great! **Dog Personality and Behavior** 13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space? * Snuggly prefered 14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please? * maybe a middle ground? But eager to please is great 15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors? * Energetically and cute. We don't want barking or an aggressive dog 16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs? * No 17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid? * Nothing else that I haven't mentioned **Lifestyle** 18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone? * There would be certain moments throughout the day that it will be left alone (as everyone is doing something outside) but that maybe would be like 4 hours max and could happen between M to F. Saying that at any given day the dog would be left alone for more than 6 hours is an exaggeration 19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog? * Everything I've said applies to everyone. 20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they? * No, only the dog 21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly? * No 22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease? * No 23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds? * Medellin, Colombia. We don't have any laws on it that I know 24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live? * Well as it's in Latin America we have very hot years. It can get as hot as 30°C and as cold as 20°C **Additional Information and Questions** 25) Please provide any additional information you feel may be relevant. * No additional information. 26) Feel free to ask any questions below.

2023.06.11 00:18 Keinne27 Rx 6800 XT Fan RPM and GPU temperatures

I recently got a new PC with the RX 6800 XT MSI Gaming Trio variant in a combination with Ryzen 7 5700x. Well, I can’t complain about the performance but I the temperatures were way higher than those I saw on many different benchmarks. I got 80 degrees and 100 junc. temp while playing God of War. So I tinkered a bit with the AMD Adrenaline Edition and managed to get it down to 65-67 degrees and 75 junc. But to do that I undervolted the gpu from 1150 to 1100 and set a fan curve. But now the fan rpm gets to 2500-2700 which is kind of loud and I don’t think it’s normal. Most of the benchmarks I saw fans were going at 2000 rpm max, while mine need to go 500+ to get the same temperature. Any idea what’s the problem ?

2023.06.11 00:18 Jina04 Please help me..

Hi, I don't know what to do now. I'm suffering with my IB. I'm in grade 11 now, so IB 1. Now, my IB 1 is going over. I only have final exam from next Wednesday. I was good at studying. In Korea, I was quite top students in grade in my middle school as I could go to high school for specific purpose of study. I was proud of myself that I did it by myself without any other private study help. After moving abroad because of my father's job, the situation totally changed. I couldn't follow up the class. I couldn't understand it during the class time, so I could ask a question to teacher, even I couldn't answer to the teachers' question anymore. Even though, I could cover them by using my extra time after school. So I could get high gpa as 4.00 , perfect score. So I believe that I'm adapting here, overcoming the problem. But after studying IB, I felt like I just fail it. IB course has much more contents to study and requires a lot of work to do like IA, EE or CAS. I couldn't focus on my study well with much time that I used to. I just attend school while still having trouble to understand it. Since I couldn't understand the contents, I have to study from the basic concept, and textbook questions, and then past papers and further materials. So.. there were so many things to do and I couldn't get them perfectly. My score falls. In 10th grade, I got overall average as 94. But after IB 1, I got 82 for first term, 78 for second term, and 80 for this last term. (Our school has 3 terms per year) Since my school has exam every week (not for all subjects, but rotated) I couldn't review the part that I lost or prepare forward. Now, I feel that I'm completely lost. Worst thing is that I already fail my physics, and math once each. For physics, which that I persue for major, I'd never get more than 80. Always got 60-something and sometimes more than 70. Can I go to university? Can I just apply for it? I'm so scared that I fail my life. My parents already gave me up. They are just focusing on my little brother.
Can anyone suggest me how to deal with this situation? Can I get some hope just for my IB Final?

2023.06.11 00:18 avidexplorer14 “Cheat” meal.

Hi everyone!
So, I have been eating at a steep calorie deficit. I rather not go into what exactly that deficit looks like, as I am not sure it really suits the general acceptable rate of weight loss in this subreddit. I have been very strict on myself and what I eat and the pounds are coming off at a rate I am very content with. In addition to this, I walk an average of 10k (this week raised to 15) steps a day.
Today, I’m at an event with some friends. I was wondering if it would be acceptable to order a miniature taco and a beer. Would this completely derail my weight loss given its beer?
The only reason I’m even considering it is I’m at 20k steps today. I’ve only had a salad with some chicken breast today. So, I know I wouldn’t be absolutely fucked pure calorie wise. It’s just not what I would normally eat nowadays.
Thanks so much in advance!

2023.06.11 00:18 amorphoushamster RX 7600 not fully utilized, I'm at my wits end

Hey y'all. I'm having an issue with my RX 7600 in Modern Warfare 2. For some reason, the card doesn't want to reach 100% usage and the performance is significantly lower than expected. The processor is not bottlenecking the system (core usages are not high). There is no frame rate limit. Temperatures are fine. The image below shows the afterburner info. This is minimum settings btw. Also, I have the exact same issue with an RX 6650 XT that my friend let me use. It seems like the GPU isn't the cause then? Could this be and issue with the motherboard somehow limiting the card's usage? Is that even a thing?

2023.06.11 00:17 doomparrot42 Kit mods that are actually worth playing (+ add your own favorites)

I started this awhile back, but it's taken longer than planned, even limiting myself to kit mods that I consider well-designed enough to warrant installing. Given the planned indefinite closure, I figured I might as well post what I have so far in the hopes that it might be useful to someone.
My intention here is to focus specifically on kit mods that are conceptually interesting, reasonably well-balanced, and - preferably - occupy a niche not already served by a vanilla kit. This isn't a strict rule, however. Mostly this comes down to "kit mods I've been using long enough to feel confident recommending" - if you don't see your favorite here, feel free to shout it out.

2023.06.11 00:17 DamnD0M Created a homebrew 3rd-level spell based on the wings of Diablo's angels and Stormcaller Brundir from WoW's Ulduar

I wanted to create a 3rd-level that had radiance, but was specifically something of a holy spell that also looks and feels cool, but is on par or greater than the other 3rd level spells but still weaker than fireball. So I based it on the wings of the angels from Diablo and also took inspiration from the mechanic behind Stormcaller Brundir's Lightning Tendrils.
Wings of Divinity
3rd-level (conjuration)
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self (10-foot radius)
Components: V, S
Duration: Until you've moved 60 ft.
Classes: Cleric, Paladin
Tendrils of radiant energy erupt from your shoulders. These tendrils cause you to hover 10 ft. off the ground and force your movement forward a total of 60 feet in any combination of direction you choose.
Each enemy creature that is within 10 feet of you during this movement at any time must make a Constitution saving throw only once. A creature takes 2d6 radiant damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
If the creature is undead of CR 1/2 or lower and fails its saving throw against this spell, the creature is instantly destroyed. After the movement is complete, the hover ends and you gently land on the ground.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.
~~~~ I've compared the damage per 5 ft. to other spells at that level. It is stronger than all spells besides Fireball but it's also 2d6 so it won't be the deadly spell. It's usefulness comes in that you can move freely without attacks from opportunity for 60 ft., move to a safer spot, still have your additional movement action, can kill Undead creatures (they get the feature to kill Undead CR 1/2 or lower at level 5, which is when they unlock 3rd level spell anyways, so it matches up), and it could potentially break them out of tight situations like grapples or prones, etc.
While the damage output to each non-Undead or Undead CR 1 and higher creature is average, there is usefulness and a fun flavor I believe. Any thoughts?

I don't even know where to start how to start but from the post I could read because I know there is some posting issue I could only post via the app but from the recent post I still see that some of us don't understand why we are so lonely why we cannot find someone why we cannot keep friends and all that said things I recently had a very bad dip I don't come out of my bed for months at this point also had to do it friends but this wasn't meant also venting post I just wanted to let everyone know what help me to understand why we are so different why we feel so lonely why is it so hard to connect with people is because our brain functions differently we ( people with BPD) have neneurodivergent Being neurodivergent means having a brain that works differently from the average or “neurotypical” person. this is what the scans in the researchers revealed: The scans revealed that in many people with BPD, 3 parts of the brain were either smaller than expected or had unusual levels of activity. These parts were:
the amygdala – which plays an important role in regulating emotions, especially the more "negative" emotions, such as fear, aggression and anxiety the hippocampus – which helps regulate behaviour and self-control the orbitofrontal cortex – which is involved in planning and decision making Problems with these parts of the brain may well contribute to symptoms of BPD

2023.06.11 00:16 Gidrenz Nurkic

I appreciate Reddit is maybe not the best place for reasoned discussion, but I’m hoping to talk about Nurk constructively.
There’s obviously a real prevalence of thought on here at the moment that he’s useless and a negative asset. I really don’t see that at all, so I thought I’d go through some pros and cons of him as a player.
To start with the cons, it’s often said that he’s temperamental. I actually agree with this. In my view, he gets a lot of foul calls that are unfair (I accept some, but not as many as people make out, are foolish). That clearly gets in his head, especially when the team is struggling.
His injury history is also wheeled out a lot. I think that ignores the fact that, putting aside the bad injury, he’s actually been shutdown early the past couple of seasons while we tanked. I have no doubt he would have played if we were still competitive. He’s not athletically gifted, so he’s not the sort of player you can ride for 35 minutes a night. But how many centres are?
It’s said he’s weak finishing around the rim. I agree. It’s infuriating to see him dab up finger rolls when he could hammer it. Clearly the injury has affected him there.
Moving to pros, it seems absolutely clear to me that the team is better defensively with Nurk on the court. His size (even though he’s not an elite shot blocker) means teams think twice about going at him. As long as he’s not asked to race out to perimeter defenders, he serves a purpose. I think he’s also a cannier defender than people realise. He’s done better defending Jokic than most.
He’s a pick and roll monster. No one is getting through that screen.
And now, he’s developing a stretch game. He shot enough 3s last season to be a legit threat.
TLDR: No, he’s not one of the best 5s in the league, but he’s certainly league average as a starter.

2023.06.11 00:14 ShakeNBakeMormon P.O.W.E.R. Rating System adjustment: P.O.W.E.R.S. Rating System!

Alright, people seemed to generally really like the concept behind my P.O.W.E.R. Rating System, and even the post where I demonstrated LCA’s scores. However, while doing some thinking I realized that the system nearly left out a key aspect of fights: distance. Under previous iterations of P.O.W.E.R. I lumped the ability to fight at range into Options, but this didn’t quite sit well with me as Options was more meant to convey the ability of a fighter to adapt to a variety of different opponents or switch things up when their primary style didn’t work, so I have decided to alter the P.O.W.E.R. Rating System by adding a sixth element: Striking Distance. This statistic illustrates the ability of the character to outspace a conceivable opponent, attacking from safe distances and being able to wall out the approach of the opponent. This statistic, like Wits, is a sum total of multiple statistics, but only two this time: the first is Melee Reach on a scale of 1-5, where 1 is only having one’s bare hands and 2 is average. The second is Effective Range, which covers ranged weapons like guns and bows on a scale of 0-5 where 2 is average. This isn’t necessarily a measure of how far one’s bullets and arrows go, or even their power, but instead how far a distance they can cover before they become ineffective. Slower projectiles like Yang’s rockets from the Yellow Trailer, inaccurate projectiles like Sun’s shotguns at long range, or less effective projectiles like Ren’s or Blake’s bullets will score much worse than faster, more accurate, and more powerful projectiles which can be effective from long range like Harbinger’s shots or Crescent Rose’s bullets.

Now, for a complete rundown on the new P.O.W.E.R.S. Rating System:

P stands for Power: The assisted striking force of the character in question. This can be with melee or with guns, and simply translates to how hard they can hit or, conceivably, how much they can lift or carry- higher weight will inherently boost this score, as will mechanisms like using dust to swing harder or rocking a larger caliber. Lower scores indicate characters who either prefeuse a “death by a thousand cuts” style or characters who simply don’t have the mass or caliber to pack a punch, while higher scores indicate characters who can hit like trucks to cause considerable damage to the environment or to their opponent, regardless of how rapidly these attacks can actually be delivered. Characters like Yatsuhashi will score well here, while characters like Weiss will score fairly low. Average score is 4.

O stands for Options: The ability to switch up what you’re doing to adapt to your opponent. Having multiple weapon forms immediately helps with this, as does having multiple different techniques for using the weapon which cover different scenarios. A variety of dust types also improves this score, and a semblance which accomplishes multiple purposes with proper application is yet another bonus to this statistic. Lower scores indicate one-trick ponies or characters whose strategies require more particular parameters to function, while high scores indicate fighters with a wide array of tricks and backup strategies in the less likely chance their primary one proves ineffectual. Characters like Weiss will score well here, while characters like Yatsuhashi will score fairly low. Average score is 4.

W stands for Wits: Knowing is half the battle, and this statistic indicates the character’s ability to strategize either in advance or on the fly as well as general knowledge of skills. Advance Planning is effectiveness in making tactics before the mission, In-The-Moment is effectiveness in making tactics immediately when danger appears, and Learned Skills is general smarts. Lower scores indicate characters that don’t or can’t put much thought into how they fight, while higher scores indicate the ability to detect and set traps and quickly react to new information. Characters like Jaune will score well here, while characters like Nora will score fairly low. The score is derived from Advance Planning on a scale of 0-3 where 1 is average, In-The-Moment on a scale of 0-3 where 1 is average, and Learned Skills on a scale of 1-4 where 2 is average.

E stands for Engagement control: The ability of the character to pick their fights, whether it be by having higher mobility or the ability to impair that of their opponents. This score is mostly just a measure of mobility, be it fast movement or the ability to get airborne, but does also include things such as being able to trap or hinder the opponent: anything that lets them pick their battles or control the distance at which engagements happen. A lower score indicates a character who is generally slow and has trouble keeping up with or fleeing from opponents, while a higher score indicates characters that can rapidly close or create distance to control whether the fight happens and at what distance it happens from. Characters like Harriet will score well here, while characters like Jaune will score fairly low. Average score is 4.

R is for Resilience: The ability of the character to withstand the hits they take and keep on fighting for considerable periods of time. This score can indicate tankiness, but it can also indicate high levels of stamina that can keep the character going for longer than their opponent. This stat includes things that reduce incoming damage like a semblance that renders them immune to certain types of attack, or things that enhance their endurance. A lower score indicates a character who either can’t take hits well or an inefficient one can’t keep up fighting for a long time, while a higher score indicates a character who can take a beating and/or keep on fighting for a long time due to more efficiency or greater endurance. Characters like Yang will score well here, while characters like Weiss will score fairly low. Average score is 4.

S is for Striking distance: The ability of a character to fight at further ranges than their opponent, whether it be greater reach with a melee weapon or greater effective range with projectiles. A low score indicates a character that either doesn’t have good reach at all with poor or no projectiles, or a character who might only be effective at longer ranges while suffering in close quarters, while a high score indicates a character with good reach in melee combat and effective ranged combat over great distances, allowing them to be comfortable no matter how far away their opponent is. Characters like Ruby will score well here, while characters like Yang will score fairly low. The score is derived from Melee Reach on a scale of 1-5 where 1 is bare fists and 2 is average, and Effective Range on a scale of 0-5 where 2 is average.

If you want to measure your own OCs according to this system, you can either list their ratings in the comments of this post, or make an infographic like I did for LCA under the previous system as a post of its own, with or without credit for the idea! Happy rating!

2023.06.11 00:14 Chart-trader Detailed YTD performance/benchmark calculation

While being in Europe stocks performed as expected (going up).
The cautious portfolio with 30% cash obviously lags behind the benchmark now.
This year a buy and hold strategy was once again better than active trading. That's why the majority of an investment should always be in longterm investments where positions change maybe once a year.
For example one of my 401k accounts is up almost 16% YTD and there I only bought additional large cap tech earlier this year with the remaining cash that was available.
SPY 3839 (15%) +12%
DIA 33147 (15%) +2.2%
QQQ 10940 (15%) +32.8%
IWM 1761 (15%) +5.9%
SPEM 32.96 (10%) +5.3%
URTH 109.25 (10%) +10.8%
FEZ 38.7 (10%) +16%
AAXJ 64.79 (10%) +3.8%
Average YTD: +11.5%
Average YTD (US only): +13.2%
ETF benchmark +11.5%
Small portfolio +6.64%
Big portfolio +9.1% (liquidated 4-14 to pay off all remaining debt that can not be deducted from taxes)
Cash Savings Acct. +7.3% (liquidated 4-14 to pay off all remaining debt that can not be deducted from taxes)

2023.06.11 00:14 Wise-Surround-6327 NA players same problem while playing PVP on Hypixel?

It's obvios that Hypixel is a bit laggy, because of the insane amount of players, minigames etc. and beeing from EU and therefore getting a bit higher ping is not very helpful either. Even though i can't believe how trash PVP is on Hypixel. Examples:
Enemy not looking at me, still hitting Enemy having a block more range enemy beeing able to combo, since they wont take kb Them beeing able to hit you through a new placed block Bugging back is also very cool thing
I played Mc since quite a while (<8years) and consider myself above average in PVP and had never such big problems in the past when playing on hypixel. Thats why i wanna know, if its just hypixel itself or if i just suck madly.

2023.06.11 00:14 Tritium3016 running two blowers, one for each hand

So I was helping out at the offices of a borough council and went to the toilet. I walked in on a guy drying his hands, by running two blowers, one for each hand. I wondered if he just enjoyed wasting money, perhaps did the school run in a Chealse tractor. Or, maybe drying your hands this way is the most optimal, alpha male way of drying one's hands? Does anyone else here do this, and if so why?

For what it's worth he had small to average size hands.

Today Aimsey got 14th, and last year she got 16th, with an average of 2215 coins, a RIDICULOUS jump from her placements in all other events.
Plus she got 12TH IN ACE RACE TODAY SHE DID SO GOOD!!! For reference, she was right beside HBomb and Mysticat in placement
I can tell in general that she's been improving so much but for Pride ESPECIALLY she seems to kick it into another gear

2023.06.11 00:10 bogtromper infection or something else?

i had a root canal done (#19) back in october and then a metal filling cracked (#14) so i had those two teeth crowned at the same time. ever since then, i have been experiencing temperature sensitivity and pain in my left side of my mouth. my dentist and the endodontist have both done many xrays and found nothing. i had a secondary root canal done. i’ve been on three rounds of antibiotics. we even went as far as to replace the crowns. nothing has helped. they keep telling me my bite is off and then they adjust it and tell me to give it a few weeks to heal. it has been 8 months of this. any idea what could be the problem??
