Grab Bag

Grab Bag -

The Grab Bag returns this week to once again answer a myriad of miscellaneous questions from the Dark Age of Camelot community.

Q. Is there some sort of trigger for the named Stonecrushers in Dartmoor (such as Kez and Kaq)? Or, do they just have a really long respawn timer? I've been trying to get an item off each of them, but so far I've only found them up one time and it's getting frustrating. I'm wondering if there's something I should be doing to make them spawn, or how long I'll have to wait for a respawn.

A. The two monsters in question have a number of locations where they might spawn. There is no trick involved to their spawn and they have a decent spawn rate. You might want to widen the search a bit or see if other players in the area have seen them; it's quite possible you aren't the only one hunting them. Thanks, Bearded Wonder!

Q. When I type /gc who, what is it that determines the order in which names are displayed?

A. This one was a quick and easy reply. I like those! According to the Guy with the Code: It is essentially in a random order. We keep a list of connected characters, and as you enter the game it finds the first open slot and puts you there.

Q. The weapons Golden Spear and Moment of Zen when right clicked display as 16.5 dps and 4.2 speed weapons. However when these 2 weapons are delved into the chat box, such as in Battlegroup or group chat, they display as 16.5 dps and 4.3 speed. This is the case at least for Hibernia, though I’m not sure about Midgard or Albion. Which of the 2 weapon speeds is the correct one?

A. What would we do without the Bearded Wonder? Here’s what he says: They are both technically correct. The issue is that the code rounds differently in each case. The speed of the weapon in the system is in milliseconds, so you only see the value rounded in seconds. In the right click display it rounds down regardless of the speed value. In the chat display it rounds up if over halfway and down if less. So in the case of the items noted, you see 4.3 in chat and 4.2 in delve based on how it rounds the speed. The true speed is between that and constant.
