Re: CIP:OpFi Oka

Statue will always have much better defense and it will almost always feel "safer" Dragon form does give you more HP than statue form; I'd suggest it has better defense against quite a few monsters. But Dragon form has much less AC and 0 SH. Surely this makes up for it? (Unless unresistab...

Re: CIP:OpFi Oka

Although pertaining to Oka specifically Finesse can make you .35 auts per attack (with max UC) and dragon form will cap out at .3 auts. So specifically for the corner case of being Oka the difference is lessened, although that last .05 auts is actually still a lot. This isn't true. The hard cap for...

In hellcrawl damage numbers are unobfucscated. As an Op of Chei in Dragon form with a decent amount of slaying I have hit for 210 damage before and RJ supposedly has 150-300. So its easily conceivable to do it.
