Best of luck :)

1. Armo is on a 50% mount, Bitey is on an 80% mount. How much faster (in percent) can Bitey travel compared to Armo?

2. Laplace, a rogue, has and uses full EDL. At Bloodthorn, he is asked to use a Heroic Haste Elix, but instead uses a special 40% haste cake, arguing it makes no difference. His clan thinks otherwise. Who is right?

3. Name a 6* mob with no physical or elemental resistances.

4. Can a 4* Chaos Aura mob “enrage”? (True or False)

5. Nature’s Divination can be cast on other players (excluding PVP). (True or False)

6. A higher Melee Combat Ability increases the probability that a Warrior's skill will be evaded. (True or False)

7. A higher Scholar Ability increases the probability that Firebolt will critically hit. (True or False)

Clan Awesome rolls for drops after raids. If a player brings two characters they may roll twice (once per class present), but may not roll again if they win a drop. As with most clans, Druids are of lowest attendance, followed by mages, warriors, rangers, and finally rogues. Drops are rolled for individually, limited by class, and players roll for every applicable drop. The next four questions will involve Clan Awesome.

8. Alyss is a member of Clan Awesome, and brings two characters to Proteus Prime: a Druid and a Mage. Luckily for Alyss, Proteus drops a Pureness Conflux (of high value, all players can roll for it), a Caster Brace (of medium value) and a Druid Conflux (of medium value). Eury, on her Rogue, is hosting the rolls, and seeks to minimize Alyss’s chances of getting a good drop. In what order should Eury host the rolls to best ruin Alyss and aid herself?

9. Unfortunately for Eury, Alyss wins the Pure! Clan Awesome then kills Gelebron, and receive the following drops: A Pureness Conflux, a Druid Totem (of medium value), a Druid Brace (of low value), a Druid Ring (of low value) and a Druid Conflux (of low value). Eury again wishes to stage the rolls to foil Alyss. In what order should Eury host the rolls to best ruin Alyss and aid herself?

10. Over many raid kills, with Eury trying to foil Alyss at each one, should Alyss receive more, the same, or fewer preferential Druid drops than a single-deviced Druid? Why?

11. Clan Awesome makes a change in their rules: instead of rolling for drops individually, they roll them by class, so if three Rogue items drop all the Rogues will roll and the top three rolls will get the drops. In the event of multiple same-class items dropping, compared to the previous system does a player's chances of getting a drop a) increase, b) decrease, c) stay the same ?

12. Name two standard skills (from the skill shop, page quests, mob drops, or storyline) that also do Divine Damage.

13. Lure of Soldiers aligns to which resistance?

14. Zyz’ Lightning Strike does 5000 damage. He equips a ring that adds 300 more damage and decreases the cooldown by 5%. Lightning strike has a base cooldown of 7 seconds. What is the DPS of Zyz’ Lightning Strike?

15. Zyz decides to equip another ring, with +200 Lightning Strike damage. What is his new DPS?

16. Zyz gains a third Lightning Strike ring, adding a -10% cooldown. Now he has all three rings equipped. What is his new DPS?

17. What % cooldown ring must Zyz need for his Lightning Strike DPS to match a +300 damage ring (not wearing any of the rings above).

18. What four lures are required for Proteus?

19. Which class cannot use the skill Double Attack?

20. What item was given to players at the release of the Android client?

21. What is the newest server?

22. Jake uses four devices at Mordris, including one Druid. He does not wish to move his Druid, instead leave it standing in one place to heal the tank. Should Jake use Ward of Fire? Why?

23. Should Jake use Nature’s Breath? Why?

24. During a Gelebron kill (Gelebron is being attacked and crystals are called), how long can crystals last before healing Gelebron?

25. Poison Damage affects Chaos Wraths. (True or False)

26. Will switching from LTE to WiFi disconnect a player?

27. Three players are in a group. What percent of the XP does each player gain per mob compared to soloing?

28. Which resistance has the least available gear?

29. Which server was the first to kill Bloodthorn?

30. Where is the new development studio based?

Enjoy the summer!

Answer Key:

1. 1.8/1.5=1.2 -> 20% faster
2. Crim is right, as attack speed has a floor of 1100 ms
3. There may be multiple correct answers, the one I was thinking of was Obelisk of Power, in The Otherworld
4. False, only 5* and 6* mobs enrage
5. False, this skill may only be cast on mobs
6. False, a higher melee combat ability decreases this probability
7. False, scholar ability has no effect on firebolt
8. Conflux -> Brace -> Pureness, so Alyss might win one of the previous rolls and be excluded from the Pureness
9. Ring/Conflux/Brace -> Totem -> Pureness, so Alyss is most likely to win a low value drop and be excluded from the high value drops
10. Fewer, as Eury can conduct Mage items first, decreasing the number of times Alyss can roll for Druid items.
11. Decrease. When choosing the top 3, your probabiliy of winning a drop is #drops/#players. When rolling individually, your probability becomes 1/#players + 1/(#players-1) + 1/(#players-2) + ... , a slightly higher probability
12. Stinging Swarm, Rupture
13. Slash
14. (5000 + 300 ) / (7 * .95) = 797 damage/sec
15. (5000 + 200 + 300) / (7 * .95) = 827 damage/sec
16. (5000 + 200 + 300) / (7 * .90) = 873 damage/sec
17. Simple equate the two DPS functions to each other: (5000 + 300) / (7) = (5000) / (7 * (1-CD%)) -> CD% = 5.66%
18. Fire, Ice, Magic, Slash
19. No classes cannot use the skill
20. Everlasting Fireworks
21. Nuada
22. No, Ward of Fire's aggro range is within the Dragon Fire AoE range, which will most likely kill his Druid
23. If he wishes to, as Nature's Breath is outside the AoE range
24. Indefinitely, as long as they are bashed/frozen
25. False, only Divine Damage affects the wraths
26. No
27. 3 players = 160% xp; split in three = 160/3 = 53% of the soloing xp
28. Poison or Divine, both are around equally sparce
29. Sulis or Epona, depending on who you ask
30. Thailand
