    Paying with a credit card

    Thats a debit card Debit cards are far more common in Hungary, iirc 90%+ of all plastic cards are debits. For a minor with no regular income a credit card might not be even a possibility here.. if it is then its very expensive. Most banks offer cards intended to be used for online purchases, usually called "web cards" or "online cards" like this These come with higher security standards, requiring confirmation by phone before every transaction and such.. but they are usually linked to bank accounts that are not available for minors and/or very expensive to maintain. Some years ago I was also searching for some safer alternative, but the maintenance fees were so high for other cards (compared to my measly uni grant at least) that I just settled for a regular debit card. But then it was some years back.. and dont take my word for any of this .. Ive demonstrated a complete ineptitude in finances in all my exams also: debit card = betéti kártya credit card = hitelkártya

    Metal

    I meant avant garde in the vein of Sigh or maybe even Arcturus ... like this ... as opposed to the "darkened Motorhead” style of the first wave

    Metal

    1. Almost everything I could say.. Heavy Metal – goes without saying Thrash – cant go wrong with it as long as its real thrash … The Haunted is not. The more oldschool sounding the better. Power metal – preferably power metal with balls. Though, from time to time, I put on my Rhapsody tshirt and sing Power of the Draaaagonflame out loud. Doom – with all of its subgenres from the traditional sound to funeral doom, everything Folk metal – this is fun stuff. A good listen while drinking but there aren’t many bands that I really appreciate from the musical point of view. Fun nonetheless. Especially when played live Black metal – ok, its tough. I listen to a lot of black metal, yet I cant stand the typical bm sound. I took my time to familiarize myself with it, and while Ive found some bands I liked I got bored of it very quickly. Ok, 'its not music, its war' but I rather listen to some catchy riffs instead. what I do love is the: first wave, which may or may not be considered black metal today. Venom, Bulldozer, Hellhammer, early Bathory, Tormentor raaawwr This includes early bands that developed a quite different sound, one that seems very “avant-garde” today. Like Master’s Hammer. Technically they don’t fit here, but Im adding the modern bands playing blackened heavy metal here too. Black/thrash: considered more black than thrash. Probably my all time favourite genre of all the greek scene: or any band with the typical greek bm feel to it 2. Im a purist so no 3. Death metal is something I rarely listen to. Cant say I hate it, I could just never get into it. I do love some old bands though, Morbid Angel, Possessed etc but probably because they were still very thrashy. So while Im not really familiar with the current state of death metal, there is definitely more to it than just cookie monster vocals, from what I can see and hear, its a very demanding genre technically at least. I’d suggest giving Decrepit Birth a try, they are one of the few modern bands I like. And Quo Vadis too, for more a melodic sound. Im tempted to give youtube links, but Im too lazy right now

    Requiem Rogue Guide

    some questions from a squishy caster: I see that rogues rely heavily on evasion ... and as I’ve seen with other aspects of the game.. the stats of the mobs scale more than yours as you progress further into the game. Is it the same for evasion? I mean do you have to reinforce evasion religiously to make it worthwhile? How much evasion does a rogue have around lv50? My very wild guess would be around 3000-4000? (I may be completely off here) And do you think a class with different specialization would benefit at all from less evasion? Would some evasion do ANY good, or would it be negligible?

    Patch problems in requiem...

    Those files get deleted after patching, try running a search for RTP files, they may still be in a temporary folder Stubbie, 00000081.RTP is only the first part of the big patch iirc .... you should try manually downloading all the files, then just copy them into the patches folder here http://www.rapidshare.com/files/141033953/...h70-81.zip.html and here http://www.rapidshare.com/files/141037772/...h82-92.zip.html there may be more, Ive lost track of them..
  7. Yes, thus Zs is not s but /ʒ/ aka voiced postalveolar fricative aka zju
  8. Dz is pronounced /dz/ (as in Hudson) Zs is /ʒ/ as in vision Most of our digraphs correspond to English letters in pronounciation, notable example is the Gy, which is not used it English at all. It sounds somewhat similar to "due" /dju:/ As for how they are used ... they are individual letters and cant be separated
  9. hey Ari :) hope you and your family are doing well *hugs*

  10. Dont know… if the shaman doesnt get aggro, it means they are not doing their job right Ideally ofc they should be safe, the problem here wasnt the lack of taunt, but that the first line kept going down. Even the warriors with their dumbed down taunt were able to keep aggro quite well until they died. But then chaos ensued. I was running around like crazy trying to tell who had aggro then trying to get them in healing range. We had two commanders in party, but both were quite low level, the 60+ warriors were weathering much better. An other shaman started kiting when he got aggro, was damn annoying because it made the party spread out so much that my party heals became dysfunctional. And with that Area of Effect damage the dragon has…
  11. From my point of view it looks something like this: 1. I head out trying to find some mobs. For the first time, respawn times seem to be awfully long 2. When ganto goes lololol I know I have enough mobs on my back 3. I start running back to him, relying heavily on the power of my prayers that I wont get hit too hard. I have mana shield on, so I lose mana instead of health, but if I run out of mana Im a sitting duck 4. Wait for the moment when the mobs are nicely packed together then I sleep 4 of them, and use blunt strike on a 5th one to stun him for 4 sec, buying some time. At this point there are 3-4 mobs hitting me or ganto. If my mana is getting dangeruously low, its spirit potion time. Ganto starts playing with his fire spells. 5. Here I should have time for 2-3 heals before the first sleep expires and I can cast it again. I prefer to use lesser heal and maybe even lesser party heal before my moderate heal; both are less powerful but have a shorter casting time. Noticed that the key here is the timing, if I can finish casting my power heal just the moment before the sleep’s cooldown reaches zero, we’ll be fine. Ganto continues to cast pretty looking spells. 6. Picking a mob randomly in the middle of the group, hoping that he’s enough health left and wont die before I can finish casting the second sleep. If ganto’ s health doesnt allow a 2 sec downtime in healing I dont even attemp to cast sleep a 2nd time, I just go into heal-only mode. More healing, and watching the mobs die. 7. Looting, hopping/bouncing around, then rebuffing paranoidly Ganto socketed some HP into his gear, and it really helped, now we only have troubles if we get some unexpected adds. I still need more mana as there’ no way I can safely pull this many elites without mana shield on. Im gonna have to redo my whole gear, will cost me a fortune... This is indeed some very effective griding, I can acually see my xp bar move for the first time since lv40 or so. Even better that the two uf us squishies can pull it off relatively safely now
