Drop Of The WeekEdit
Thottbot 3.1: Scoring SystemEdit
For those of us who stopped using Thottbot months/years ago, it’s a surprise. Randydeluxe still uses Thottbot every day, and just five days ago, noticed Thottbot 3.10, including a new “scoring system,” which is allows you to gear up – on paper, errr, screen – and compare an arbitrary ‘score’ for the set.
Basically, every item now has a score associated with it, and that score is based on a number of different qualities, including base stats, armor, gem slots, resistances, spells, combat ratings. But you don’t have to trust Thott. You can change the scores yourself. And custom score settings can be turned into a permalink, which means players can easily trade their own custom scoring sets with each other.
