2021.10.21 11:15 Lupus_Huvia I have some screenshots that is the primary focus of the subject of this post. But for some reason I can't post pictures. So I'll try to describe it in the post. Recently I think I had a fight with my friend. So here's the conversation and context.
("Friend posts a picture" Friend: Cosmic over dragon?
Me: I like it. Too bad I can't use the concept description.
Friend: why not?
Me: Dude this image was created by an artist. Taking the design from this image is still plagiarism. The only way this would be cool is if I ask the original artist permission if I can use their designs. But I might as be asking them permission if they could draw art for my book. But I would also need to pay them for their labor.
Friend: Ok. Next time I try to give you something to inspire your creativity I'll make it vague and obscure enough that its not an obvious plagiarism. Then I'll sue you for using my ideas, you ungrateful cunt.
Me: Dude seriously?...)
Context: I'm working on writing a fantasy book about dragons. And I'm planning to get the book published. So I'm basically trying to create an original fantasy world and avoid using elements that would get me or my book targeted by copyright laws.
I've been talking to my "friend" about advice, suggestions and opinions on my fantasy book. Basically brainstorming with him about ideas in my book. I go to him about this because he is a huge fantasy nerd.
And is very knowledgeable on both literature and fantasy. Given that he's both a Tolkien fan and a religious Dungeons & Dragons addict. And he has shown me many times that he has a lot of smart ideas.
And I'm willing to admit that I'm not smart enough to think of ideas that would be brilliant. So I kind of need to brainstorm with people with a greater self awareness than me if I want to write something really important to me. And in past conversations, I have voiced my concerns for maintaining original ideas for the sake of not violating copyright laws.
So I could avoid getting sued by any pre-existing works of fantasy that have already made claim over those specific fantasy elements. I'm also fully well aware plagiarizing a private artist on the internet is just setting me up for ruining the credibility of my book. I understand my friend is trying to help, But this reaction came out of nowhere for me.
I understand how he feels but I don't know if it's a rational response or not. I think the reason why my friend is reacting this way is because he feels like I've been taking his advice and ignoring it. He has voiced this complaint before.
So lately I've been trying my best to not ignore his advice and seriously think about it and consider it. And I have employed a lot of his suggestions when writing my book. I do admit I ignore some of his ideas because I have a vision I want to achieve.
It's just I'm still trying to figure out how to achieve it. Lately thanks to him I've been getting closer to figuring it out. But When it comes to stuff like this, there's certain things I can't agree to. And this reaction is disheartening.
Also I just want to mention just little bit, I told him I want to put him in the book as a co-author. He told me to credit his name in my book instead. I don't know, If we patched things up after this, that might change.
So ever since I decided to write this book. I've been trying to go head deep into independent literature study. I currently can't go to a college or university or anything like that.
So I'm left to my own devices to do any sort of literature studies. And So yeah, lately I've been trying to study literature so I can get a better understanding of how to write my book "properly". You can obviously see I need to study more. Lol...
So yeah I just wanted to explain every detail so this wouldn't be like another one-sided blame post. But, What is your opinion? Am I in the wrong?

2021.10.21 11:15 DeliciousTie55 H: legacies and high-end fixer and handmades W: legacy for legacy, or high-end fixer offers, and I can bundle (no harpoons or gauss rifles please)
I want a legacy for a legacy (except the harpoon). For legacies I like gat plasmas, flamers or non-ult lasers. If adds are needed I like fixers with aa/q/v with 50c/25ffexplosive and 25lvc. I can bundle if needed! I will take apparel for lower tier fixers or handmades.
These are the weapons I have
Aae15rl gat laser
Aae1a ult laser rifle
Be1p radium rifle
Be1p gat plasma
De15v ult laser rifle
De15rl Gatling gun
De fms flamer
ExecE1p non-ult laser rifle

2021.10.21 11:15 Snaebakabeans My DPS/Healer redesign
So in a previous thread I mentioned healer dps and how it feels like a requirement for any content since low keys and normal raiding. One of the suggestions I had was to add actice and passive damage to each class via mastery and spell redesign.
The 2 approaches we can have are: mastery scales the healing of damaging abilities or mastery scales the damage of the abilities.
Scaling the healing of the damage abilities would push for more active healers early on in the expansion then transition into more.paasive healers later.
Scaling the damage would make it so your play style shouldn't change too much as the expansion progressed but your damage will scale much more later on.
But anyway... Here are my ideas:
Disc Priest: this spec would stay pretty much the same but a fair bit of damage tuning.
Holy Priest: Holy fire now adds renew (lowest health Ally within 40 yards). Reduce the CD of Chastise and make it hit harder as well as smart heal the lowest HP Ally. When Prayer of Mending jumps between targets it leaves shadow word pain on the closet enemy or refreshes the current one. Their mastery would cause their holy spells to radiate damage to the nearby enemy (ST for ST, AOE for AOE) and scale up.
Resto druid: Make Efflo also do decent damage to all enemies in the circle scaling with mastery. For cat/owl, their big finisher will extend all hots by 6 seconds and add wild growth to the 6 lowest HP people. Mastery would scale damage and extend hots longer
Resto shaman: this one would be kool. Healing rain would also damage targets inside of it. Chain Lightning/Heal would cast the other for a lesser amount. Lightning Bolt/Healing wave does the same thing. Lava burst puts a elemental fire barrier on the lowest health Ally within 40 yards for a percentage of the damage done. Mastery would scale the damage
Mistweaver: this one is easy, just bake ATotM as their toolkit but adding SPK as part of it. Have mastery increase the damage.
Holy Paladin: glimmer becomes baked in mastery increase damage done. Have LOD do a small amount of damage and consecrate heals a little bit as well.
