comment How is “Bonus Slag damage” calculated for Slag-Licked?
In fact, I think that once slagged, they are resistant to slagged weapons IIRC.

comment How do I get “Can't Feel a Thing”?
IIRC in that particular video, the player lost 1400 Shields and about 1400 HP. I didn't notice any skill activations. At lvl 38, you probably have access to higher shield values. I think I have about a 2400 unit Shield and am currently leveled in the mid-20s

Have you tried to determine the shield DPS for the acid?

Can you correct and clarify the following: "as for the y-axis it moves turns upside whether I move the mouse down or up."

comment My character has trouble running, he can only walk
Does this ever happen in any other fps games where you use w and shift at the same time? Do you have any hotkey, key macro, or key repeating software running (AMD Catalyst has hotkeys)? Workaround: sprint is press and forget, so you can tap it and let go and you will sprint until you let go of W.

comment FPS Capping, regardless of setting in Options
this also sounds like vsync is enabled. Very basically, with vsync, if the frame rate drops below the refresh rate (often 60hz), it will drop to 1/2 the current refresh

comment Cause of mysterious PS3 connection drops and lag?
the first point: your lack of an IP address may have been because the lease had a long expire time. Second point: (laptop/PC/phones/iPad) can conspire together to cause lag spikes at irregular intervals, depending on variable usage patterns, and a world-facing web server could be getting hit by port scans. You should clarify whether any other devices are running network games (and if the problem is not noted), since a periodic lag spike (connection reset, lag spike, etc.) might be nearly invisible for non-realtime network use.

comment Installing Black Mesa through Steam
For completeness, mods are installed to their own unique folder under steamapps\sourcemods and it can be named anything you want. I did not use the setup program (which is optional), and I simply unzipped the files to a temp location on the same HD and then moved them to a folder named steamapps\sourcemods\bm. As Seven stated: Steam must be restarted to see the item in your library list.

I found 2 on Sunday as well (I have found a total of 8). Conspiracy.

The OP might be able to set up a private vpn to their parent's house. The bandwidth might even be OK, depending on the University. The latency (lag) might be the deciding factor for FPS gaming. The Mars Orbiter has a 6Mbit connect AFACT, but the latency is about 30 minutes

Also: the OP should look into enabling the game option "elective mode" which allows one to place any skill into any slot, at least for the really difficult times where (s)he is struggling and can't find the right mix of skills to make it through.

comment Strategy for Iskatu Nightmare/Hell - Witch Doctor
I won't add an answer because, frankly, this is a sort of non-constructive question (no correct answer), but I use(d) locust swarm, the gargantuan pet and zombie wall (in addition to the soul and spirit you suggest) for most of the way up to lvl60. I also used the passive skill which boosts int with orbs. If you drop a zombie wall to stall the swarms, pop soul harvest, and grab any orbs that drop, you will probably have 5 stacks of +int, plus the soul harvest. Your dps goes through the roof, and with aoe and pets, this translates to huge damage.

comment Can a AI-controlled companion be ordered to take an action?
Also: normally hits to a downed player will cancel a revive, but the AI are not interrupted by this. You are better off protecting the AI and allowing them to execute a revive. They do have a tendency to die doing this however, so you need to cover them.

comment Is there a way to check the affixes of champions without my follower charging them?
I don't think the follower getting one-shotted is the problem. DH characters tend(ed) to have really high DPS even when other gear and stats were low. This meant 2 or 3 damage reflected shots could kill the player before they even realized what was happening, since it is easy to fire 2-3 shots before the first one lands.
