Awesome, I was hoping that!

Are any of the other CG units good too? I got Fina on a ticket pull for the banner so I've got lots of tries and lapis left.

Nichol is the best buffer in the game. Lid is the best breaker. Sakura is an excellent magic finisher. I'd wait for the last few days when Nichol and Lid are featured.

Interesting, thanks!

Beating the heat - Hot showers or Cold Showers?

In the grip of a heatwave and not handling it well. Trying lots of little things to make the best of it.

In the evening, should I take a hot shower or a cold shower?

I've traditionally tried to combat evening heat like this by taking a shower as hot as I can tolerate as long as I can tolerate. The idea being I get used to the hot/raise my body temperature, and then the air in my room feels colder in comparison. But I've recently seen sites suggesting you should cool yourself down as cool as you can instead, and that it will help.

Which is right? If it makes a difference, I live in a high humidity area.

I'm not looking for general heat-beating advice, thank you. Just an answer/consensus on the shower thing.

URGH! I live in Canada and right now we are experiencing a 2 week long heat wave with record breaking temps into the 40C range with ridiculous humidity and no AC so I feel your pain!!! I have been doing as follows : drinking ice cold water frequently/constantly staying hydrated, driving with the AC on and actually letting my car sit with the AC blasting for a good 5-8 mins before entering the vehicle, keeping all of my curtians and windows in my apartment/room closed to keep the hot air out, have a fan blowing around my apartment (literally just feels like hot air), doing absolutely no cooking indoors (only barbeque and takeout food),taking hot showers because temporarily the air feels cooler afterwards, sleeping naked with a cold cloth on my forhead and stomach, eating lots of popsicles, staying indoors unless I absolutely have to go outside and trying to sit in the shade if I do go outside.....if you live close to a lake or ocean or know someone with a pool you should go spend a day swimming!... Guess not much else you can do except for try to stop thinking about it and let it pass

Aye, Atlantic Canada here. Heat warnings, record highs, absurd humidex.

I don't need to deal with it during the daytime. I spend it in a good air conditioned environment. It's mostly when sleeping.

Buy a goddamn room fan.

I have four fans. They're pushing around hot air.

About the medals, its better to wait for the 1.5x boost for higher success transfer rate. A higher evolution rank also increases the success rate iirc, so if you have the resources might as well digivolve them first.

Tbh i have ravemon +4, resist trained & expanded chipslot but it still feels underwhelming compared to multi-hitters like machinedramon & megagargo. Still viable to farm nature type advents though, but now i just wish i have enough BM frags for him.

So what's this resist training all about?

You can buff your mon's attribute resistance by sacrificing an identical mon. Let's say that you have an electric type which is typically weak to glacier & nature, you can resist train it so that your mon would receive less damage from attacks of either one of those attributes.

Do I get to choose, or is it random?

Due to multi-summons, I've got three Ravemons now. Two +1, and one +2. All have max potential chips slots.

One of the +1s has the leader skill "Radar patch" and none of the other two have leader skills at all. Is my best route to max out the friendship of the leader skill +1 to work him to presumably +3 by feeding him the other two, or is there a way to get that leader skill onto the +2 and turn that +2 into a +4 somehow?

Also: I've got a few rookies with medals. How do I go about most effectively getting those medals onto another, much better digimon?

Is there a way to get a bigger camp?

Bought the bundles because I like this game, got some cool decorations, can't install all the arches because there's only two arch slots. And with stuff I've since bought using tickets, I'm hitting a hard wall of slots for other decoration types.

Is there a trick or other way to get a bigger base? Seems bothersome that they'd sell premium stuff to decorate your base and give bonuses, and not give you enough room for it all.

Thanks folks! I missed (probably repeatedly) the tooltip that says you gain the benefits of decorations you own, even if you haven't put them on display

The mewtwo arch is an example. Whether you place the arch or not you still have 6 battery slot

Are there move guides? Wikis, or something?

I'm wondering if there's sites that list, say, the pool of moves any given pokemon could learn from when you do the relearn. Or more specifics about a lot of the mechanics. Maybe a rating/discussion on each move? Seems like online support isn't very big for this one yet.

Are there any signal booster type products?

I'm in a situation where I'm routinely in a spotty signal area during the daytime. It's mostly a structural thing, lots of concrete and such in the building, but there's pockets throughout where there are much better signal.

Is there any sort of signal booster/extended antenna/something like that product I can buy and attach to my S8 and try and pull a bit more signal? Mainly for data purposes, but not being in a temporary complete dead zone for calls and texts would also still be helpful.

Cards like lightmine field

Hey folks. I'm not great at searching gatherer, I couldn't get it to turn up useful results for me, but I'm looking for cards that are red, white, or colorless, and function like lightmine field, or similar. The idea being to penalize people for attacking in some way. I wanna get a bunch of them together plus cards that negate that effect for me (looking at you, Iroas.)

I'm good with card suggestions or somebody telling me how I can effectively search for these myself!

Am I farming the wrong stage? Bergamo vs Goku

Trying to get Goku so I can awaken him to UI Sign so I can awaken him to MUI. I keep getting awakening medals. I've been farming this for days. I don't have a single Goku from it. The event clearly says this stage drops Goku. I've gone up 10 ranks from farming this on Z-Hard.

Is this just how it is? Is it glitched and he's actually in another stage?

I assume you're using a TOP team? Because his rates arent that bad. :P

Looking for the best Black/Green dual lands?

I'm trying to pick up some Black/green dual lands for rounding out my black green commander deck. I've tried searching on gatherer, but I can't figure out how to get it to exclude the other mana colors, so it gives me a lot of ones that also tap for red, or other colors, and I don't know if that's ok for Commander (and probably not efficient anyway)

So I'm hoping you folks can point me in the right direction! Or at least talk me through doing a better search on gatherer.

What do star ratings mean for paddles?

I'm looking at buying my own paddle so I can play and get used to one specific paddle instead of borrowing janky communal ones, and one site I'm looking at lists their paddles as 1-star paddles up to 6-star paddles. I don't know what's the difference. Is it a simple "higher stars mean a better paddle?"
I'm looking at DHS products specifically right now.

I know there's a wiki. I looked at the wiki. It's what lead me to looking at a site full of paddles with star ratings. I searched the wiki. It doesn't say anything about what the star ratings mean.

2 points · 2 months ago

They don't mean anything. Don't buy those premades. I wrote that wiki, and the stuff I advise is there for a reason. On the Discord community (join us!) we're pretty much unanimously agreed that for a budget conscious beginner, ColesTT Buster Combo or Palio Expert 2 is the best option.

Thanks for the info! If I wind up liking how things go once I've played enough games with a consistent paddle to get better, I'll probably go further down that rabbit hole.

Building a Pharika, God of Affliction EDH deck

Decided to put together an EDH deck, and am going to build it around Pharika, God of Affliction. I'm in the process right now of getting together all my black, green, and colorless Journey into Nyx cards so I have a base to build said deck out of, but was wondering:

Are there any specific cards (even from outside of Journey into Nyx) that you folks would recommend I seek out/buy online and use in this? It's mostly going to be for casual play, but I still like to win :P

I'm looking for recommendations, and I'm thinking enchantment creatures/lots of creatures in general so I can make use of Pharika's ability to conjure deathtouch snakes from graveyard exile, but I'm open to suggestions here.

Edit: Welp. Just found a copy of "Extinguish all hope" in my mountain of cards. So this is definitely going to be an enchantment creature deck.

Ohhh, totally misread it as exile creature in a graveyard and YOU make a snake. That's way less good than I thought

Original Poster1 point · 2 months ago

I mean, I could still use it to stop a lot of graveyard getback situations, and other decks driven by having their own creatures in graveyards, but yeah. Main application I can think of is emergency chump blockers.

Interesting. So, with Brain Maggot, if I exile a card out of a person's hand, when the Brain Maggot dies and the card returns from exile, does it return to their hand, or to the battlefield?

Phenibut sleep dose timeframe? Have chronic insomnia from ADHD

Recently acquired a bottle of phenibut, 250mg vegetarian capsules of white-ish powder. I intend to use this occasionally for a sleep aid, generally before nights where it's really important I get a good sleep.

How long before bed would it be ideal to take one of these? Should I eat? Should I not eat?

I personally always found phenibut to be mildly stimulating until it really begins wearing off, so id take it in the early afternoon and would be tired by the evening.

Using phenibut daily as a sleep aid is a bad idea tho, the withdrawal is no joke.

Using phenibut daily as a sleep aid is a bad idea tho, the withdrawal is no joke.

Yeah, that's why I was considering taking it occasionally, like maybe once, twice a week tops, for nights where it's really important I get a good night's sleep, like before an important presentation at work, or a day where I've got to get up a couple hours earlier than normal, that sort of thing.

I tried a single cap around 6:30 ish yesterday, figuring it was a safe start and I'd get more advice here. Went to bed for 7:30 without eating anything following taking the pill. Took my usual amount of melatonin, still had my usual bit of indica-based edible that I have been using for sleep.

Didn't sleep until probably 1, but had a few bouts of feeling... blissfully weird? in between going to bed and then. Like it felt like I was suddenly very calm and comfortable and about to skip a bunch of sleep stages and drop straight into very deep sleep, but then it wore off and I'd be awake again.

Though, given the ongoing insomnia, it could be that I was thinking about sleep, and that made me not sleep. Or it just coincided with an actual severe insomnia flareup and the phenibut did what it could.

I'm thinking of waiting a day or two, and then trying two caps, possibly earlier before bed, and see how that goes.

Because he already got beat the shit out of by Thanos, presumably very shortly after Ragnarok, so he was already very in-tune with his inner power in that fight.

I figure, judging by on-screen performance and feats, Mjolnir allowed him to focus and direct his powers, while Stormbreaker seems to have amplified them.

Plus it seems to have had a fair bit more heft to it, and with the axe-end, a piercing option he previously lacked.

How can I send a test image to my headset without controllers/light boxes?

I'm doing some lens cleaning/scratch repair and I'd really like to test the lenses without setting the whole thing up if possible. Right now I've got the headset wired to my computer, lightboxes and wands are in storage.

Is there a way to do this? I know SteamVR Home won't launch without 'em, but I don't need that, just a static image or video loop or something so I can see what it looks like with light from the inside.
