    Question

    What is "z-fighting" ? I have never read this term before ...
    "You are a Tiefling. And a Cleric, with the Domain of the Sun. Doesn't that contradict each other ?" "No, all my friends are playing evil. I found that so boring that I decided to be on the good side. And, besides, Sun and Fire, where is the difference, really ?"

    Z-fighting should be when you get those weird texture flickers because two objects/walls/etc. are the same point in the z-buffer and fighting for which one gets drawn on top (unless they're using it in a different way here). You'll notice it when floor tiles flicker a bunch.

    Looks promising. I have identified at least 4 spots where speeding things up would help; curious to see if you got them all.

    Question Curious

    "Ki Shout now properly uses your Concentration modifier instead of your Intimidate modifier."

    I'm just wondering, while you're fixing this bug from 2008, are you changing the Ki cost to match the description, or will it remain at zero?

    (After 2 years of waiting, i trashed all those builds.....)

    Can I ask a question though not related to the fix,
    Why do the devs hate monks?

    Ah, thank you.

    And i thought it was a new in-game fighting game mechanic !



    Yes, I had seen that before, but I never had a name for it.

    There are a few giantish pillars in the upper Harbour which have that as well.

    Default What's the best way to report z-fighting spots?

    Several quests have had bugs corrected related to z-fighting and stuck spots.
    Most of the time I'm in quests when I see them and really don't have time to /bug it right then and there. Should I just submit a mass bug report with a bunch of them at once at a later time or do I need to do /bug for each spot individually for them to be best addressed? I saw these 3 spots just off last night/today so far so there's still a bunch that this last patch didn't fix. The estar one is in town and constantly headache inducing.

    On a related note, Strahd jacked me up with Ruin in HE Sunrise last week (on hardcore, to boot). Is that WAI, him having a spell from an epic feat (that players can't even get until 27) in an adjusted-level 14 quest?

    That's an intended behavior from Strahd triggered under very specific circumstances; it's not in his general spell list.

    Not going to give the specific triggers that cause it, but I'd try varying your strategy a bit.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    If anyone has any information on the triggers - it would be great to hear. I was hit for 5k on R6 solo which one-shot me. It's happened only a few times in hundreds of runs. I seem to recall it only happens when I get the enemy of my enemy optional and have a hard time pulling strahd into the water due to my threat reduction presumably.

    Ugh yes I hate when I get Esmeralda on that quest solo because she'll just aggro the hell out of him and I'm like you're not helping

    If only she had a dialog option of "Do you want to take nice bath Esmeralda? There's a nice pool over there (diplomacy check)."

    i got hit by that twice so far, both time had either esmeralda or a mob grab aggro for too long with strahd out of the water, with 0 hp left. i usually sat in the tree until i realise whats going on, as soon i went back to the ground i got hit by an AoE ruin type instant circle boom that killed me. both time i think mobs were all gone

    so if i had to guess the trigger, get him to 0 hp, and keep him out of the water, and kill all the trash, somethign alogn those line should reproduce it
