    Hey everyone! I’m muntasirms and I very recently joined the DI community at the recommendation of my buddy @13thShade (give him a holler). Seeing his incredibly informative guides on VGC pokemon and their relevance, I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon--but with items! AUTHOR: @muntasirms META: VGC/Doubles Alors, without further adieu, this week’s item(s) (are) the 50% BERRIES. Although these might not seem hugely relevant, their clear impact on the meta has been evident in their usage across metas as we see old Gluttony users slide back into meta, and other bulky pokemon utilizing the berries far more effectively than their older cousin, the Sitrus Berry. THE BERRIES The following berries are classified as “50% Berries”: Figy (Confuses with a -atk nature) Mago (confuses with a -speed nature) Aguav (confuses with a - sp def nature) Iapapa (confuses with a -def nature) Wiki (confuses with a -sp atk nature) All of these berries will heal 50% of a pokemon’s health when the pokemon is at or below 25% of its maximum health. As long as the pokemon is given a berry which doesn’t match its hindering nature, there is no issue with the confusion (I find that Aguav and Iapapa together will umbrella most uses of the berry) RELEVANCE With the introduction of Alola, we see bulky, slower pokemon dominating the field, and when bulk is intention, recovery is key. However, many of these pokemon lack reliable recovery, making them significantly weaker. A perfect example of this is in Alolan-Muk. With decent 105/75/100 bulk, combined with it being arguably the only defensive dark type in the Alolan dex, it is an overall decent pokemon with one crippling issue-- it has no recovery outside the slow-set-up Stockpile/Swallow combo. However, with one of the berries, combined with its Gluttony ability, Muk now has a one time use 50% recovery as soon as it hits half health or below. What was only a mediocre mon becomes a meta driving monster and a major threat in VGC. USAGE How can we abuse such a powerful new item? As touched upon earlier, pokemon with Gluttony utilize the berries incredibly well, bypassing their only risk by eating them at 50% health. Let’s check out some sets that abuse these berries really well. Snorlax @ Figy Berry Ability: Gluttony Level: 50 EVs: 244 HP / 236 Def / 28 SpD Relaxed Nature IVs: 0 Spe - Belly Drum - Recycle - Return - Crunch This is a bread and butter set in VGC and in other formats for an old friend Snorlax. Without getting too much into the spread, the plan with this set is to set up belly drum (ideally in trick room), snag the x4 attack, and then using the Gluttony ability, heal back to full. This is a perfect use of one of the 50% berries. In a perfect situation, it will synergize with the moves (belly drum) and the ability (gluttony) of the pokemon, leaving you with a full health, maxed attack Snorlax, ready to obliterate foes. In the event that you are hit below 50% health due to not being in trick room, the berry will heal Snorlax back into a range where it can use belly drum. Either way, the berry makes what would be a high-risk high-reward play into a low-risk high-reward play. With access to recycle, Snorlax gains access to reliable and reusable recovery. Muk-Alola @ Figy Berry Ability: Gluttony Level: 50 EVs: 252 HP / 44 Atk / 108 Def / 100 SpD / 4 Spe Adamant Nature - Protect - Knock Off - Poison Jab - Shadow Sneak Wolfe’s London Internationals team was infamous for its bulk, with Alolan-Muk holding its seams together. This is a classic use of Gluttony/ 50% in action. With a tanky set like this, Muk’s job is to take hits and dish them out. Because of the 50% berry’s added recovery, investment can be taken out of defensive stats and put into offensive ones. 252 SpA Life Orb Tapu Koko Thunderbolt vs. 252 HP / 100 SpD Muk-Alola in Electric Terrain: 109-130 (51.4 - 61.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO A 2HKO is turned into a 3HKO with the berry and with the 44 atk EV investment: 44+ Atk Muk-Alola Poison Jab vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Tapu Koko: 126-150 (86.8 - 103.4%) -- 18.8% chance to OHKO Muk can floor its enemy in two hits. Magnezone @ Iapapa Berry Ability: Sturdy Level: 50 EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Discharge - Flash Cannon - Protect - Thunder Wave This is an example of a bulky mon without Gluttony which utilizes the berry well. With sturdy, Magnezone will survive a hit that would otherwise KO it, and then activate the berry to restore 50% of its health. However, you will notice that there is little or no investment into defensive stats. This is to ensure that Magnezone will be brought down to below 25% health to activate the berries. For example: 252+ SpA Tapu Lele Shattered Psyche (175 BP) vs. 252 HP / 144 SpD Magnezone in Psychic Terrain: 116-137 (65.5 - 77.4%) With special defense investment, Magnezone takes less damage, but has a lower chance of reaching the threshold for the berry to activate. Without special investment: 252+ SpA Tapu Lele Shattered Psyche (175 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Magnezone in Psychic Terrain: 135-159 (76.2 - 89.8%) Magnezone is guaranteed to reach the threshold and heal using the berry. I would go over more sets and calcs, but here’s the bottom line: 50% berries give bulky mons a crucial extra turn to set up, use a status move, or even get some chip damage. A single extra turn can turn a game around, and the 50% berries give you that turn. COUNTERS There are no specific pokemon to counter 50% berries, but in general you want to use a pokemon that you know will not activate a the berry, and then the next turn, hit hard and make sure the berry user faints. A huge mistake many players in VGC make is double hitting a pokemon without thinking of the berry’s trigger threshold. If you are double attacking a berry user, make sure the first hit will not activate the berry, and the second hit will KO, or the berry will activate. Knock off has always been a powerful staple, and with items playing a vital role on every team. A single knock off will shut down a berry user and make recycle users (namely Snorlax) unable to recycle it, and in niche situations, shut down Harvest users such as Alolan-Exeggutor and Trevenant. Unnerve is more relevant than ever with the introduction of these berries. Watch out for Aerodactyl preventing your team from eating their berries. Although VERY rare, Masquerain also gets unnerve. If there are any Masquerain, they will most likely run intimidate, but knowing it has unnerve in its arsenal is important. Gluttony might be helpful for your team, but watch out for other hungry mons. Anything that utilizes pluck or bug bite will consume your item, along withutilizing the effects for itself. Threats to watch out for are Pelipper, Mandibuzz, Scizor, Butterfree, Parasect, Trapinch, Araquanid, and Vikavolt. Though a lot of these might not seem so common in VGC, those uncommon pokemon are the ones that throw people off. Remember that these guys have the ability to eat your berry themselves. Scouting these items is crucial; you need to find them before they activate. Besides the niche Frisk on Trevenant (or any other Frisk mons outside VGC), pay attention to calcs and end-of-turn procs. A black sludge Muk will be easy to recognize from the end of turn recovery, and if it eats a Gigavolt Havoc from your Koko, chances are it has an Assault Vest. USERS AND ABUSERS Here’s a list of pokemon I’ve seen use these berries fairly well. Keep in mind, pokemon is a mind game, and deviating from expectations can be in your favor. If you want to spice up your unorthodox set, these berries will do well with nearly any bulky mon. Snorlax: With all the benefits of Gluttony reducing the risk of the berry, along with a movepool to support its use, Snorlax is easily one of the best users of 50% berries. Muk: As mentioned above, this bulky mon is saved by this berry. With Gluttony, Muk becomes a beast as it utilizes the berry’s full power at only 50% health. Tapu Fini: The bulkiest of the Tapus does well with this berry. Tanking a supereffective hit will leave it crippled and often in the sub 25% zone. A 50% berry helps the hero never die. Magnezone: Classic bulky mon with a plethora of resistances. With a calculated switch or prediction, its health will soar back up to above 50% Arcanine: The classic meta pick for fire type is honestly versatile enough to run sets far better than a 50% berry. Nonetheless, a bulky dog can always do with a snack, and will help it do its job better as a wil-o-wisp-er and chip damager. Trevenant/ Exeggutor: While not common, these two utilize Harvest, which can regenerate a used 50% berry. With excellent recovery sans a move-slot, these two do very well with 50% berries (Though I would argue Sitrus berry is a little more reliable) Hopefully you’ve found this in depth look into the 50% berries useful for your teambuilding. Since this is the first in the series, I’d really appreciate any kind of feedback/advice. Let me know if something like this is useful. Thanks for reading! @Eastonn8@Telfer@Thesi

    I am absolutely disgusted, I want you guys to understand something as you go in life. There are different types of change. One is progress the other is regress. Whenever you do something say is this going to progress or regress us? I'm not perfect and I have done a lot of things to regress but I own up to it and try and make it progress. I urge you to do the same.

    Enter a strange and unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. Gather resources to craft items and structures that match your survival style. Play your way as you unravel the mysteries of this strange land. Cooperate with your friends in a private game, or take your chances with strangers online. Work with other players to survive the harsh environment, or strike out on your own. Do whatever it takes, but most importantly, Don't Starve. 1. What is DST 2. Server 3. Characters 4. Early game 1. What is DST Don't Starve Together is the standalone multiplayer expansion of the uncompromising wilderness survival game, Don't Starve. If minecraft and Tim Burton had a lovechild this game would be it! I think its fun, Don't starve is one of my absolute favourite games. Steam page 2. Servers You can either join a public server or join/create a private server. DST can be made to function as a single player game simply by not letting anyone join, there are mechanic differences between the two however so i would recommend playing the original Don't starve if you'd prefer to roll solo. An explanation of the world customisation options can be found here and the different modes below. Dedicated servers 3. Characters There are 11 to choose from, each with their own individual characteristics. More information found here. I'd recommend Wilson if you're just starting out, he's a good all rounder. If you're starting a server with a group of people its a good idea to look at who is making up your party. Ideally including a fighter ( like Wolfgang or Wigfrid ), Wickerbottom for her abilities (disclaimer, she's my favourite character :p ) and perhaps Woodie for resource gathering. 4. Early game Congratulations! You've spawned into a sparkly new server (for joining a public game this doesn't apply) and now you're standing at spawn thinking wtf. The first objective upon spawning is always gathering enough resources to survive the night so run around and grab flint / twigs and grass and some berries while you're at it. Once you have 2 - 4 flint make an axe and start chopping down trees until you have around 10 wood. Now you can survive the night! With multiple players this enables you all to divide and conquer but make sure everyone always has the ability to make a fire and replacement tools. Early game as far as food goes it going to be mostly berries / carrots and seeds (exception being if anyone is playing Wigfrid who must eat meat). Remember to cook everything before consumption but do not make more than you need as cooked versions of carrots etc spoil much faster. From there I always spend the first 4 - 7 ingame days exploring the map (use roads as they increase run speed 25% ) trying to find a good camp site and locating useful resources. Ideally I prefer to camp next to several different biome types (including grassland / marsh ), be pretty central on the map and create the base on a nexus of roads. Once you've selected a good site create a science machine, Fire pit and Crock pot . From here the main goal is to set up enough food production to stop everyone in your group from starving and then preparing for winter/summer depending on which season the server started on. Don't worry too much if your whole group wipes, it happens. Just start again with an understanding of whatever went wrong and do better next time :D For further in depth information on anything covered please check out the wiki i've been linking all over this post, its a great resource. I'm also happy to answer questions!

    Below are links to some Google Sheets that I have made over time. From crafting to dinos and some things in between. Ark Crafting (Mats Needed) This has most items in-game that can be crafted and what you would need to craft them. There may be a few things missing if you see any mistakes let me know and I will correct them as soon as possible. Ark Creature Tables The sheet contains information from temperament and saddle level to carriable by and more. There are several tabs at the bottom for your convenience. Imprinting Kibble Is a list of dinos needed for eggs to make kibble for raising your baby dinos. Kibble Calculator This allows you to input the number of eggs you have and will formulate how much kibble you can make with it, or if you know how much you need for that tame, will allow you to see how many items you will need for each type to make it. (this is mostly completed but needs a little updating due to the addition of items like giant bee honey and ammonite bile. Feel free to copy these and use them for your individual teams or for yourself. As always Let me know if you find any issues with any of them and I will get them corrected as soon as possible.

    Hey all, encountered your clan while playing Atlas Reactor, figured I'd join up. I'm from Wisconsin, living in a rural area with horrible internet, so AR is a perfect multiplayer game for me to play. I work on the weekends (48 straight hour shift!), so I usually have quite a bit of free time during the week, which is nice. I pretty much go by the same nametag in any game I'm playing. I'm a pretty open guy, so feel free to ask whatever of me.

    Hey, what's up? Yeah, this topic is about how to make money in Albion Online. :P I'd like to know how you guys make money and if it's easier than mine. Please feel free to reply on how you guys make money in Albion Online. This is how I try to make money. I rank them from the least profitable to the most profitable: 5) Dungeons It's based on your luck if you happen to encounter bosses that are worth fighting for. 4) Farming Well, you just buy some seeds, plant them, water them, wait for a while and there you have it. Use the products to make food, transport or potions. You'll get seeds so you can replant them so you don't need to buy any more seeds. 3) Gathering/Refining Other than making money for you, you could use the materials you gathered for yourself. 2) Crafting To earn more money from gathering/refining, why not craft those materials to create weapons or armour to sell. 1) Merchanting Buy something from a place at a cheap price, selling it at some other place for a higher price. I guess that's how I make money please share your ways so that we can discover new ways to be rich.

    Albion Online Beginner’s Guide This is still unfinished, will be adding and improving quite alot of it, most of the stuff here is still subject to change so please wait until the guide is fully finished before using it in detail. The vast world of Albion Online offers nearly limitless opportunities for newly-arrived heroes. You will write your own story and make a name for yourself. With all the new things to discover once you arrive on the shores of Albion, the Destiny Board, the different zones, the classless system...I want to provide you with a helpful guide, so you know where to start. Albion Online is a Full Loot sandbox MMO with a heavy emphasis on player-driven economy, Full Loot PvP and role playing niches. What is a player-driven economy? It means in the certain cities and areas, NPC’s, buildings and all of that are all crafted in place by the players. Albion Online is also using the Full Loot PvP system. In some certain areas in the game, your body is able to be looted with all the gear you had on you when you die. One golden rule you should hold on to when playing a new character or when you are relatively new to the game is to stay within two or three zones of your starting area. Do not venture too far if your character isn’t strong enough. Your starting cross has every crafting station to make all the gear from tier one through tier three. And you can find all tier two to three materials within two to three zones of the starting region. After tier three, you’ll need to either build a higher tier crafting building, buy the higher tier gear from a auction house or find a higher tier building in a nearby city which might have extremely high taxes. There are no classes in Albion Online. All abilities are provided by gear that you’re actually wearing. For example, if you would like to be an archer, simply find a bow to access all bow related skills. In addition, different types of armor give you different set of skills as well. When first entering the game you may notice that there is no quest giver or NPC to direct you on your journey. Don’t be alarmed as this is intentional. In Albion Online, you script your own legacy and determine your own path. However, the Destiny Board is available as a support-system to help you better define who you wish to become as a player. The first thing you will want to do is open the Destiny Board by hitting the “B” hotkey. < Picture incomplete, is missing clarification text for each route, will add later > Yes, at first glance the destiny board will appear to be very complex, but don’t feel discouraged as it will only take a few moments to fully grasp that it is a lot more coherent than it appears. This will be your unspoken guide for character progression in Albion, and it is accessible anywhere, anytime. You will begin progressing your destiny board from the moment you log in. After closing your destiny board, take a look at the right-top of your screen. There you will find your initial destiny board tasks to complete and begin your journey. Upon arrival at the shores of Albion’s coast, you will end up in one of four locations: Highland Cross, Swamp Cross, Mountain Cross or Forest Cross. If you plan on beginning your journey with a companion, then traveling between each starter region is a rather simple process. This can be done by speaking to the Travel Planner located on the ship docks of each starter city. You can then travel between each starter region… for a small fee unless you are completely naked. < missing picture/s , will add later > Proceed by gathering those initial rocks and logs, and slay those innocent bunnies to your hearts content! Don’t forget to loot all the rabbit-hide while you’re at it. Grabbing some extra of each resource will come in handy, as every resource you gather will prove to be useful in one way or another. After you complete your initial task of gathering resources, it’s time to create your first items: gathering tools and weapons. Head on over to the first NPC you will encounter in the game, in the middle of the map, which will provide the workbench necessary to create your initial gear and tools. Onto your first creations! Now that you have your resources in inventory, you’re ready to make your first tools and weapons. Gathering tools are an immeasurably important component of Albion Online’s crafting system, as they allow you to gather higher tier resources, thus resulting in crafting stronger weapons and armor in the process. < missing picture/s , will add later > Resources come in eight different tiers. Each tier becomes increasingly challenging to find in the open world, as resource scarcity is a very tangible factor in world of Albion. Only the best of the best will be able to maintain the highest tier of gear, so keep in mind that the world is indeed a competitive one. You will need the appropriate tier level of tools to gather a resource of the same tier. With that being said, make sure to always have gathering tools on-hand if you plan on gathering and creating your own gear. Knowing that you plan to be the best of the best, go on and create your tier 1 tools. This will be your first step in achieving the ultimate goal of unlocking tier 8. With your tools in-hand, gather some more stone, wood and hide (or use those handy-extra ones you gathered earlier) and create your first weapons and armor in Albion. Like gear, raw materials come in different tier which allow you to craft the gear for that corresponding tier. In order to craft items, you’ll need to refine the raw materials. The raw materials are refined at corresponding crafting stations for each raw materials. Ores are refined at the smelter, fabrics are refined at the weaver, stones are refined at the stone mason and wood is refined at the lumber mill. < missing picture/s , will add later > Another tip when gathering is to be cautious of the weight limit. In Albion Online, your character has a limit to how much you can carry. If you go over this limit, you will move very, very slow. Your limit can be increased by crafting a bag, getting a mount which you can ride when you’re over encumbered with items. < missing picture/s , will add later > The Classless System: You Are What You Wear Upon crafting your sword, shield and leather armor, let’s take another glance at the destiny board. Although you currently wield sword and shield in-hand, it is important to notice that once you’ve acquired enough fame (read: experience) to progress into tier 2 weapons and armor, your gearing options become limitless. This ties into the fact that Albion Online’s approach to character progression does not confine you to a particular role, but instead, allows you to create the character and play-style of your preference. To put it simply, you are what you wear. One day you can play as a cloth-bearing fire mage, pyro-blasting your enemies into flames. While another day, you can be a full-fledged tank in plate armor, protecting your allies from hordes of Undead in the trenches of Albion’s dungeons. All of this can be accomplished on a single character. In-line with the simplistic nature of Albion’s design, is the simplicity of the classless system. When you first equip a piece of armor or weapon, you’ll notice that on the bottom side of your screen that new skills will be present. If you equip a different type of armor or weapon, you’ll then find that the skills have changed. Again, you are what you wear. Wearing different armor-types will result in different skills and an entirely new and refreshing playstyle with each change. This opens the door for endless theory-crafting; your only limiting-factor is how imaginative you allow yourself to be, thus creating a play-style that defines you as a player. Let’s talk a little bit about the combat and the fighting system of Albion Online for tiers one through three. Well, it’s pretty simplistic from the beginning tiers because you’ll be soloing most of the time, and you’re going to be doing PvE instead of PvP. As a solo fighter, you don’t really have to do much except stand still and cast skills. Most of the difficulty and complexity in Albion’s combat comes in harder dungeons such as hellgates which normally require a team rather than a solo play. The only tip for beginners is not to bite off more than you can chew. You might think you’re all-mighty and powerful but you cannot take more than three enemies at once most of the time. Silver Main currency of the game is silver. Silver is key to repairing gear. Silver doesn't drop from every mob. Mostly silver only drops from humanoid mobs such as skeletons, bandits and other similar creatures. They are often hidden away in certain areas of each region or can be found in dungeons. < missing picture/s , will add later > Zones As a new player it will be important to understand that new challenges will present themselves along the way. There is a learning curve to survival in Albion Online, as it is one of the defining features of the game. Let’s cover a few tips to ensure that you will be having a memorable and joyous experience. To begin, it is imperative to understand the zone system in Albion Online. There are four zone-types, each presenting new challenges and daring opportunity. You can recognize each zone type by opening your world map ("M" hotkey) and zooming in to look at the zone name. They are color-coordinated based on each type of zone and the encompassing risks involved. < missing picture/s , will add later > Blue zones The first of the four is the green zone. This is where you are at right now, and it is the only completely safe zone-type in Albion. Expect to find resources varying from tier 1 through tier 4 in these zones. You should feel safe bringing your founders gear and mounts out into these zones, as there is very little danger present besides the first mobs you will be killing out in the open world. If you end up dying in a green-zone, do not be alarmed as you will only be knocked-down momentarily and incur a durability loss, rather than actually dying and losing your gear. The green zones are an excellent place to get your feet-wet in your first PvE (player versus environment) adventures in Albion, so take the time to learn the intricacies of combat and resource gathering in these zones. If you die every now and then in the green zones, no worries! Your viewers will laugh with you in the process. < missing picture/s , will add later > Yellow Zones Next, we have the yellow zones. Expect to find resources varying from tier 3 through tier 5 in these zones, with a small amount of tier 6 as well. This will be the first zone that you will potentially encounter PvP (player versus player) in Albion Online. However, sharing similar functionality to the green zones, if you die in a yellow zone you are only knocked-down momentarily and acquire a durability loss rather than dropping your items. With that being said, you should feel relatively safe with bringing your Founder’s gear out into yellow zones as well. The main difference here is that you should keep your ears open in case of any conniving player killers lurking to try and kill you. This is possible by flagging up for PvP. You can flag yourself as hostile by clicking the “shield” icon next to your hitpoints bar. Only flag yourself if you are actually looking for PvP. Staying unflagged provides you with a friendly-buff which will help you defend yourself from those who may be after you. Whether you are the pacifist or the player killer, it is important to keep on your toes and be wary of the slight danger that yellow zones have to offer. < missing picture/s , will add later > Red Zones Third is the red zones. Expect a variance of resources ranging from tier 4 through tier 6 in these zones. This is where your adrenaline will really begin to pick up and the idea of risk versus reward begins to truly rear its head in the game. If you die in a red zone, there is no turning back and all items on your person will be dropped as spoils for the victor. If you plan on making an early entry into the red zones then I would advise you to bank your Founder’s items, including your horse and ox, as you wouldn’t want to lose these too early on in the game! There are no friendly player-buffs here, and everyone is on even-footing in regards to PvP. When you are actively engaging in red zones, be completely aware of the risks and rewards you are delving into. If you kill a player, all the loot is yours, and vice versa if a player kills you. Something important to keep in mind is that Albion Online does support you in your solo endeavors. When there are more than 10 enemies near you in a red zone, you will see them as a red blob on your mini map. This is a sure-fire alert of danger, and will give you the opportunity to escape from an unfavorable fight, unless of course… you’re feeling like a hero! < missing picture/s , will add later > Black Zones Finally, we have the black zones. Expect to find resources ranging from tier 5 to tier 8 in these zones. This is the end-all be-all of the zone types, and by far, the most dangerous (and most rewarding) of them all. Similar to red zones, if you die in a black zone you will drop all of the items in your inventory, including your equipped gear. There are no friendly-buffs, no mini-map indicators of danger, or anything to help you in these zones besides your own wit and merit. When you’ve reached the point of engaging in black zones, you are ready for the highest level of open world competition that Albion has to offer. Keep in mind that different tiers of mobs will also be present all throughout the world of Albion! In similar fashion to resource tiers, mobs also function similarly in Albion. They come in eight tiers, with increased difficulty and scarcity based on tier. You will find the easiest mobs to defeat in green zones, with the most challenging mobs in black zones. With an understanding of the various zone-types, and the risk versus rewards present in each respective zone you’ve acquired a strong understanding of when and how to approach each zone, along with the risks you’re willing to take. Even though you’ve come a long way, we still need to cover the elephant topic in the room. The topic that will test your dedication, integrity and overall experience in Albion Online; joining a guild. < missing picture/s , will add later > This is still unfinished, will be adding and improving quite alot of it, most of the stuff here is still subject to change so please wait until the guide is fully finished before using it in detail.

    Like I said - leader's are not made of sweet talking, but hard work and torture. Rest in peace.

    I could not be any more proud of residents of Division 8. The forums, event turnouts, teams, and spirit of this division this past month is more than I could have asked of you. If you do things and I don't say anything it's not because I don't notice them, I'm just so baffled I have no words to pronounce how thankful I am. You all are rock stars and my golly I hope you know this. #kayscommendationscomingtoastorenearyou
