My mistake, won't happen again. I also replied there, trying to be helpful in my own way.

Assuming you're using SimpleMachinesForum software, a forum admin should be able to disable the ability to post attachments.
Admin -> Members Submenu -> Permissions
Navigate to the group you want to change, then Modify.
Toward the bottom, there will be a submenu about Attachments.

If you want this for every group, there's a faster way via Advanced Settings, at the bottom of the Permissions Groups List.
Select all the groups, then scroll to the bottom, use the last row to "Clear Permission" - Post Attachments

It might help to make this a software enforced situation, at least to help with people who don't read (like me)

OOOOOOK. After so many months, and discussing challenges on Discord, I was motivated to jump back in.
Tried a character, died to a centaur. That sad soul will remain unnamed.

Now, meet Insanity, a (currently) pure Rogue, using traps as main damage, and flashpowder+mandrake+flurry of knives to spread confusion everywhere.
Got SUUUUPER lucky with a Staff of Magi from the pile of dead bodies near Hippius, kept using that until I maxed Rapid Construction, now just toting a Beastcallers elemental bonus staff. Self found so far, but if I don't find a puppetmaster's staff soon i might change that. Energy regen is a pain.
Level 27 in the Parthian Highlands, still going strong.

and it wont let me attach any more than my last 5 images xD

Edit: I just noticed that I killed all of 6 monsters in all of Egypt. Wow.

I still remember I only saw him when I was running xmax. So, I killed 3 of him. And got no achievement.

Running mods disable achievements. If you killed 3 of them by running Xmax, wich is a mod, you obviously got no achievement.

Or maybe you reached the Egypt act before killing them?

Oh, it was certainly the mod issue. I knew exactly what was going to happen, I'm just bitter about it being my only encounter with him lol

I was using some twinked EBD focused build, so I was able to hit and run with Distortion Wave and burn him/them en masse

No one naked can handle Shadowmaw? Challenge accepted.

 Good luck in the Athenian Passage!

Close call, but ThirdDegree made it past the Chimeras. I was playing without sound and didn't have the gong to warn me when her health got down to 50. Happened to glance up and mash that R button like a madman.
Level 33 at the Babylon Outskirts, respecced everything to max the Mastery trees so I would know how many attribute points to spend in each thing to wear my future gear. Also picked up a lot of Dream-specific gear from my vault now that shes over 30. 85% twinked now, just waiting til 47 for that Eye of Reveries, and for a good amulet.

Does anyone know if/how Throwing Knives work with Psionic Touch? Can I throw a flurry of knives and spread EBD that way? Do I have to wait for my 3rd basic attack to prepare the burn, and then throw? Is it possible at all?

Got trapped by a Neanderthal in the Bactrian Woods. Then trapped by another one. Then another one. Then dead. Level 34
I think I'm going to try a different route, a Ritualist or Haruspex for this, since I hardly used Rogue for anything except the early levels.

So I took a break from the other one, and started ThirdDegree, who was initially meant to be just an attempt at finishing Normal with the Freddy Krueger build, but started Xmax and will officially put her ticket in for this challenge, since she just got past Triton's Ridge, and is moving onto the Minos Labyrinth, without any deaths!
Have to say, the real difference this time trying it, is a single point in Distortion Field, it gives me 8 seconds of basically immortality since the trash hordes cant really get past the flat absorption protection. 8 seconds is long enough to have maxed ToW sprint in and level the field, and using 1-0-12 Distortion Wave clears the stronger heroes in 1-2 hits. (Shadowmaw was 4 or 5, i dont remember)
Level 24 and ready to push onward!

Oh and very twinked, but only the Skyfire Pendant is really abnormal. The rest were just Tainted/Poisonous rings that made early levels faster, and self-found ____ of Recovery items.

Heroes & Bosses / Re: Post Your Enemy Hero Screenshots

Aw darn, this wouldve been a great place to post a zombie mage I fought to the right of Tegea's exit, by that lake. He was a Seer clearly, with ToC, Sands of Sleep, and he would periodically summon 2-3 Zombie Soldiers to fight with him. Super fun fight, I had to be careful how often I hit him with my maxed poison for fear of killing myself.

Not new to the expansion, but to AE is Shadowmaw a fire breathing hyena hero who randomly spawns in the cave in the Phocian Swamp.  If you thought dealing with Cyclops was hard wait until you run into him.  Being not that high a level when you find him it's quite difficult.  Advice is to equip a bow, potshot and retreat, doing this all the way out of the cave since his leash has been extended and he'll now chase you all the way to the entrance.  I hadn't run into him since installing the expansion and wondered if he'd been removed from the game as being too difficult, but he spawned for my Runesmith, giving her her first death when she tried to go toe-to-toe with him as an experiment to see how well she could cope.  She didn't.  So back to bow and potshotting which took time, but did succeed in the end.  :)

At least he's not quite related so can be avoided if you want.

Killing Shadow maw on Normal before leaving Greece is a Steam Achievement, and when my newest Xmax Dreamkiller saw 3 of him (but couldnt get credit due to mods) I cried a little. 10/12 distortion wave's EBD took all of them down in 4 waves each though, but shes super twinked too.

Do you have a copy of that list of old heroes? I want to see how many I recognize by name :)

Guides AE / Re: List of LMB skills
« on: 15 January 2018, 21:39:03 »
Skills that are assignable to LMB are always more beneficial than Basic Attack.

This is the part I don't understand. As an extreme example, the Sylvan Nymph. Why would I want to resummon her, wasting energy, possibly losing a Mastery Shrine Ultimate Level pet, every single time she is off cooldown? What if I'm about to fight a boss and expect the current one to die soon? I'm putting myself in a bad position, losing that energy, and starting that cooldown, just because its on a button that I need to use to fight anything.
The Nymph is an extreme example, but the points stand for other skills. You are burning energy and starting cooldowns when you have little to no control over what enemy you're fighting next in any given horde.

Ok, these have always perplexed me. Obviously the skills that specifically say "set this to your left mouse button" should be there, but how are the rest determined? Are they just the ones that are available? Are all skills able to be bound to LMB but these are the "best"?
In cases where multiple from a mastery can be bound, how does one best choose which is better? what about choosing between standard basic attacks, or these skills? Does it affect how battles work? I don't want to waste a skill like Batter on a trash mob when a Hero is standing right there behind it, but I don't want to dive into a mob just so that Hero is the first thing I attack.

Swapped all points into Traps, leaving 1 in Envenom, 1 in Nightshade for the fun of it. Traps are maxed, working on Warfare, War Horn, and Battle Standard now at level 31, Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

Fun fact, using the version of the mod found on Steam Workshop, I was in fact able to finish the Sphinx quest with all multiplied statues and shrines.

Whoops, forgot to screenshot Aktaios :|


Side note, I miss my Throwing Knife penetration chance  :'(

but the rebalance is needed.. throwing knife has been buffed enough.. we don't need another buff or we'll get those broken OP toons again

Honestly, I just want some form of wave-like AoE. Gas Bomb is all that's left, and the projectile can pass clear over the heads of incoming hordes.

Twinkle is level 24, halfway through the Minoan Labyrinth, very twinked (I think only 2 of her items are self-found so far) and playing AE:R

Another Holiday Spirit cameo I saw yesterday:
