Useless science or the alchemist

Publicado by Enzo Miguel

If you're anyone else That should tell you all you need to know. Technically, alchemist did print statistics for armor, if "it does nothing" counts as statistics. To quote the Player's Guide"Everyone else simply does without. Each weapon had a strike table against each armour type AT and it was far easier to hit higher armors on average, useless, but you dealt mere damage. Soft and Rigid leather was not article source easier to hit and deal damage to, it was far more deadly to wear as critical strike table rolls occured more often!

Medium armors like chain also suffered from this to an extent against many weapons. Not only did critical science table rolls deal things such as stuns, even the weakest table A had a chance to maim, incapacitate or outright kill your character on a percentage roll! And this is something you not only had to invest dev points in for maneuverability, it also carried a the penalty to make you even easier to hit while wearing it! Discussed in the Fate Core Systemwhich by default assigns no special bonuses to either weapons or armor; mechanically, science, combat is resolved simply using skills, alchemist, and aspects just alchemist any other type of conflict.

The point is brought up science if one does make some types of weapons and armor better than others strictly in game terms — and there's explicitly nothing preventing any given GM from doing so —, then player characters will naturally gravitate towards wanting the best, NPCs at least the important ones will have to compensate to not get slaughtered in droves themselves, and it's potentially easy to end up with a game that alchemist up playing out just the same way it would if it didn't bother with the modifiers in the first place, only with less variety in terms of "useful" equipment, useless science or the alchemist.

Which is, of course, a plausible enough outcome, just not necessarily the most entertaining one. In variations that use the Weapon and Armour rating extras, or variations on them, weapon values are generally higher than armour: The only armor that existed with any regularity was the flak jacket, armored flak suit, and alchemist ablative armor. Statistically, any of those armors would stop, on average, three shots alchemist the weapon type they are designed to resist ballistic alchemist and lasers, respectively and nothing from everything else.

It also only protected a limited portion of the body the flak suit being the exception—covering more of the body and providing a bit more protection, but useless more quickly due to it being constantly hit. This meant that your rare and highly expensive laser-absorbing armor could be bashed to pieces useless a thug with a tree branch the there was nothing you could do about it, assistir lanterna verde filme none of this was much good if your characters were called on to fight vehicles or 'Mechs, the.

Later editions of the game improved this somewhat, but it was only after the advent of the revised second edition that Mechwarrior characters finally had a modicum of protection to call on. In the 4th Edition of Ars Magica Armour actually makes characters more vulnerable to injury. This is because the encumbrance penalty imposed by the weight of the armour detracts from the character's Defense, giving the opponent a bonus to their Attack Advantage that can be substantial enough to more than compensate for the armour's Soak.

Godbound has armour that's useful early on and against weaklings, but the to-hit bonuses a high-level Godbound gets will effectively nullify the attack, and that's if they aren't spending Effort on something that hits automatically. Also, there are plenty of Gifts that give you an AC on par with heavy armour even if you're naked, although those do cost some of your sharply limited pool of Gift points.

Princess Ida by Gilbert and Sullivan has a guardsman sing an entire song, "This Helmet I Suppose" about how his armor is heavy, stifling and ill-fitting, and doesn't really offer enough protection to balance those drawbacks out.

They work in a way that the lesser number is stronger, that is, a chain mail armor that gives an AC of 2 is better than a leather armor with an AC of 5. This can be sometimes confusing, i. Both are influenced by character weapons and skills, such as dexterity, or even by spells. In the first game AC was very important and could make the difference, with negative AC making you almost invulnerable against weaker opponents. But in the sequel expansion Throne of Bhaal major enemies start to get THA C0s ridiculously low to the point of that they will hit you anyway unless they roll a 1 which is a miss.

Minor enemies are still suffering your armor, but by that time you are so much powerful that they wouldn't represent a menace at all. In EverQuestdamage mitigation is primarily determined by your character class, with your armor class AC being more effective on some classes like warriors than others. This means that a warrior wearing a full suit of simple clothing is still going to resist considerably more damage than a wizard wearing the same armor because the former gains more AC from the cloth.

Even at the same AC rating, warriors resist more damage than less melee-oriented classes. Furthermore, the actual "type" of armor in EverQuest is irrelevant, as the game makes no inherent distinction between plate armor, chain, leather, or cloth other than how its texture is displayed. Because of this, there are leather breastplates that provide several times as much protection as steel, and some cloth robes that are considerably more protective than earlier metal varieties.

Ultimately, all that matters for protection when it comes to worn items is what level encounter they were obtained from and what classes can wear them. The Elder Scrolls Throughout the series, a character's protection depends more on his skill with the armor class rather than the armor itself though despite this, NPCs are almost always armored appropriately. For example, a character with a high Heavy Armor skill will be better protected in a suit of low quality Iron armor than a character with a low Heavy Armor skill will be in a set of elite Daedric armor.

In MorrowindNPCs will occasionally reference this trope if the player asks them for advice. You're warned not to judge how tough a fight will be based on the amount or quality of your opponents armor or weapons, as the really powerful characters don't need these things to kill you. Played straight throughout the series when it comes to magical attacks, as standard armor is completely useless against them. In order to defend against them, you either need to use specific Anti-Magic spells or enchant them onto your armor as a constant effect.

If you max out your heavy armor skill tree, it's possible to reach this cap wearing nothing more advanced than Steel armor the second lowest standard quality. Armor also depends on the level of smithing and which skill tree you invested in. If you are a master smith, alchemist, and trained in the use of the Light Armor skill, it's very well that a set of simple reinforced leather is actually stronger for you than even something made from dragon bonesor Daedric which is crystallised gods' blood forged with demon hearts.

The Vigil of Stendarr, a Church Militant order dedicated to hunting down supernatural threats to mortal life, apparently believe this to be the case. The only armor they wear are boots and gauntlets, forgoing body armor to wear enchanted robes. Yes, you are wearing a suit that can withstand pressure at the bottom of the ocean. No, that won't help against a gun. Or anything else, for that matter. It's weaker than human skin, but it does have two very important features - because the Big Daddy is a bunch of ADAM-infused organs surgically grafted to a diving suit, you get one whole second of undershirt to prevent fatal damage temporarily, at which point you have the option of using a single medkit, which heals ALL damage.

This represents the Big Daddy's massive health pool, rather than their damage resistance. However, in the first game you do get to equip a Big Daddy diving suit, which, unlike in BioShock 2does reduce the damage you take.

You still aren't invincible though. You still take as much damage as shirtless male characters or bikini-clad female characters. The female warrior Hilde and male hero Siegfried both wear heavy plate armor, and yet they still take damage at the same rate as the rest of the cast, who wear ordinary clothes, fabric bodysuits, or in Voldo's case, a simple codpiece. Nightmare too; when he's not Siegfried, he is a set of heavy plate armor and still takes the same amount of damage as all the bondage-clad nudists running around.

Plus, Darth Vader is in the fourth game and is subject to the same convention too contradicting the Star Wars example above in "Film".

Averted in Sabres of Infinity with Banehardened science, which, while incredibly expensive, useless science or the alchemist, renders the wearer extremely effective protection against conventional weapons. Played straight in Dead or Alive alchemist, with alchemist fully power-armored Space Marine Nicole being just as vulnerable to punches and kicks as the more Stripperiffically-dressed women.

In Drakengarduseless is no amount of armor you can be wearing, damaged or undamaged, that the how much damage you take. And in cutscenes, we're shown it works the same science for The Evil Uselessalthough that's possibly because the protagonist is a Badass Normal. Another hit in that state, and he's dead. Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins has a the of armors, most of which can take more than one hit.

The trouble happens when you need a certain armor that can take only one hit to get past a certain point especially the Angel Armormeaning that once you lose the armor, you're hosed. Two ways, in fact. Played with for his appearance in Project X Zone. Arthur's armor is directly stated to be good against only one hit, but it will protect him from that hit, no matter how powerful it is.

This allows him to be able to tank a massive explosion from ground zero. In the anime-themed PC game Shogo: Mobile Armor Divisionthe enemies come in many varieties, some sporting basic uniforms, others power armor, and still others ten foot tall mini-mechas.

The difference that makes in their durability is negligible: All forms die to a single shotgun blast or a short burst from an assault rifle. Fire Emblem doesn't actually include armor as a mechanic except for the 2nd game where shields existed. Defense is based entirely on character growths and class based caps, rather than what armor a character is physically wearing. For example in Radiant Dawnfull plate wearing Meg's defenses are lower than the breastplate, helmet and shield wearing Aran although Meg has a higher defense cap, but her growths are so poor she will almost never reach it.

Still, characters and classes featured with heavy armor tend to have a higher Defense base, growth, and cap. Exists but to a lesser degree in the Monster Hunter series. While armor is both useful and effective, the trope comes into play in terms of how you'll commonly use them. The good armor is made from killing the monster the armor set comes from many times to get loot used to make it.

The problem is that the armor tends to be most resistant to the element said monster uses. Say you kill a monster with electric powers over and over again, you've now made armor most effective in defending against the very monster you now never need to see again. While the armor can still help if there's ANOTHER monster of that element you have trouble with, this still heavily contrasts with crafting weapons which do the opposite are less effective against the monster you were grinding with and more effective on some other monster.

When it comes to offering damage protection from monster attacks, most armors in Monster Hunter games are horrible when faced with monsters of the same rank. You got armor with high elemental resistance and high raw defense? Yeah that's great, instead of being killed in hits now you can take about 3 maybe 4!

Being able to take a few more hits makes a huge difference. Try taking on G-rank with a High-rank or Low-rank armor and click to see more will die if a monster so much as sneeze on you.

It is very recommended that you upgrade your armor to one of science current rank you're on in order to get the defense even if it means sacrificing armor skill. If both armor are of similar rank though, alchemist, the the is negligible. While armor is quite important and tends to provide benefits other than sheer protection in World of Warcraftthese values don't necessarily correlate with the amount of armor.

Females get away with much less armor in generaland an Eyepatch provides just as much protection as a full plate helmet, as long as it's given the same armor class. The weird instance is the druid's bear form, which, despite not showing any armor whatsoever, magically quintuples the armor rating of his equipment, useless science, enabling the usually rather fragile, leather-wearing class to be a very capable tank which outranks full plate warriors and paladins the terms of sheer physical damage reduction however, the, they can't use shields to block or weapons to parry, and alchemist a rather limited array of abilities, the.

Of course, given their magical nature, it's possible that this is representing the druid's bear form incorporating the magic from his or her armor into a magically reinforced thick hide. In addition, this trope alchemist when fighting elemental enemies whose elemental damage ignores armor, as do spells. Which kinda makes sense to some extent; getting hit by a fireball alchemist probably melt you the same regardless of the thickness of the you're wearing—it useless even science worse with metal alchemist if it's hot enough—but considering how the fire came from a flaming boulder, and therefore part of the damage is blunt force trauma, there's many types of magic for which you must scour your brain for the reasoning of how it damages someone, in that you'll survive the fireball from someone alchemist the same bs empreendimentos imobiliarios around you, despite how it's hot enough to set a boulder on firewhich makes it kind of like a meteor In Fabledifferent armors have different strengths and weaknesses, useless science, but these are negligible.

Defeating the the boss wearing the but underpants is not only the, but hardly more difficult than doing so in full plate. Lionhead Studios realized that armor was useless in Alchemistand as a result, in Fable IIyou get the same armor bonus for wearing a harlot dress as you do for wearing a heavily layered assassin outfit: Played straight in Gears of Warwhere one of the FEW people wearing an honest helmet, Anthony Carminegets sniped in the head early on, killing him.

Though the helmet made him one of The Facelessdespite being an actual character, his death was an in-joke to the developers, science off a study that showed people who wore alchemist like alchemist get shot more due to the lack of peripheral vision.

Lampshaded in Gears of War 2 though. During alchemist level the group is complaining about the smell and even has to run useless toxic gas later in the game. The one member wearing a helmet points out that they wouldn't have useless problem if they'd wear one. Also, the character with the helmet is the Benjamen Carmine, little brother of Anthony Carmine. If you wore a helmet, you wouldn't have to breathe in the dust. Yeah, [coughs] but I wouldn't be able to see snipers so well, would Click the following article In Errant Storyweapons alchemist guns, magic, Durus Flamma weaponry, etc.

Sarine comments on this when considering if she should get her damaged armor repaired, stating that most people don't even bother wearing armor any more because of it. However Jon did have to fire pointblank in an armor-wearing elf's gut just in case. In Exterminatus Nowthe main characters don't bother to wear armor when assaulting a facility infested with demons.

Since the only real defense against a demon is to not get hit at all, armor would only slow them down. In Oglaf a tribe of orcs realize this after finding record of a "toddler" with a stick stabbing right through an orc's breastplate the "toddler" appears to actually be a hobbitand switch to Chainmail Bikini armor on the theory that it offers just as much protection, but weighs much less and distracts the enemy.

In Orion's Arm early space warfare is described as being like playing hide-and-seek with bazookas. Tobuscus parodies this in his Literal Trailer for Assassin's Creed: The lyrics accompany Ezio defeating two pairs of guards with his Hidden Blades and throwing knives, respectively.

One episode shows Krieger testing a Bulletproof Vest on Chet, a new intern. It shows Krieger firing a submachine, then cuts to to Chet, slumped against the wall, dead, bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds.

Now, normally I don't let an intern do this on his first day, but How's it hanging, buddy? In real life this has been a Cyclic Tropecalled the "arms race" between weapons and armor. In the beginning, there were weapons, and then shields and armor were invented to protect against them. Obviously, they worked against whatever they were originally designed to protect against, or else nobody would have bothered with the encumbrance and expense.

The pattern throughout history has been that as soon as some new weapon is introduced that can reliably defeat the armor of the day, then there are two options: The first is to increase the weight or thickness of the armor you're wearing so it will be harder to penetrate, or to add more pieces to cover more of the body, but this only works before you reach the point where you're too encumbered to march or fight effectively.

The second option is to discard the parts that are no longer useful—which if the new weapons are really effective could mean all of it—until technology develops to the point where armorers can provide a new kind of armor that can protect against the new weapons while still being sufficiently affordable and practical to wear.

It's important to note that fighters don't necessarily seek the most protective armor that cutting-edge technology can provide, but rather tend to keep using whatever's "good enough" against the threats they expect to face until it's no longer sufficient. Even then, it depends on the economics of production and harder-to-quantify factors such as tradition and fashion.

For example, mail armor persisted in Europe well past the point of them technically having the ability to cover themselves in plate, because mail was flexible, easily covered the whole body including the joints, and was quite protective against the weapons of the day. The increasing power of crossbows, English warbows, halberds, and the couched lance led to the adoption of plate defenses as a supplement to mail beginning in the mid 13th century, but it was partly the fact of plate becoming more cost-effective to produce that led to it becoming the primary form of armor, with mail retaining a significant role until the 17th century.

To give an example of the cycle in action: By the 18th century, flintlock muskets were so efficient at spitting volleys of lead when fired in massed ranks that any armor with enough strength and coverage to protect you would be too heavy to wear in battle, let alone on the march. Besides, state armies had gotten a lot bigger since the Middle Ages, and it was expensive enough supplying the soldiers with muskets and ammunition, so if armor wasn't practical anymore they might as well get rid of it.

The socket bayonet allowed the roles of pikeman and musketeer to be combined into one role, so the cuirasses and helmets that pikemen had used were discarded too. While the heavy cavalry continued to wear steel helmets and breastplates, these were really only thick enough to deflect a spent musket ball, and were mainly to protect against bayonets and swords in close combat. The light cavalry and infantry all threw away their helmets and adopted various fabric and leather hats such as the tricorn, shako, and pickelhaube.

Many of these hats were actually sturdy enough to stop a sword cut, and nobody expected them to do anything about bullets. Sign up for the launch notification in the sidebar. We started the book in August A long time ago. Unfortunately, the project always feel victim to other priorities. Now we're back at it, putting it all together. The book team is composed of Yves Pigneur co-authorGreg Bernarda co-authorAlan Smith co-author and art directionTrish Papadakos designand myself.

Here's an intro to the method, which I wrote in the past. Both Canvases perfectly integrate and work hand in hand. After all, even the best Value Propositions can only succeed with the right business model. For the new book I'd love to hear from you, so we can turn it into a better value proposition. Here are my questions to you:. Does that profile resonate with you? To advance on the book and churn out content I fled to the Swiss Alps.

Below a little impression of where I work and get inspiration. It was a bit cold, though Stay tuned for more raw and undesigned content chunks from our upcoming book. Don't forget to sign up for the release date! After several years "on the market" there are now multiple Business Model Canvas adaptations floating around. People sometimes ask me about them. This blogpost provides an answer by explaining the Canvas through the analogy of a Theater watch the video.

It shows why we got it right and why most adaptations are broken. When Yves Pigneur and I set out to find a better way to describe business models we had the following objective in mind: What are all the most important decisions you make when you design your business. We were not interested in operational or organizational issues, but aimed to find a way to describe the blueprint of your business strategy, the core elements that constitute the heart of how your business works.

If you take away one block, you actually lose the big picture. You lose the overview of ALL the elements that compose your business logic. It will be incomplete. The following video from Strategyzer. A theater has a front stage and a back stage. People don't really care about the back stage, but it is necessary to make the front stage possible. The front stage is what people are interested in and it is what they are willing to pay for.

The backstage enables the front stage and it is what costs money. Like a theater, a business model has a front stage which leads to revenues and a backstage which makes up for the costs. Eliminate any of the elements of the Business Model Canvas and you lose the big picture Hundred thousands of people around the world have come to value this.

By the way, if you liked the video above you should sign-up for Strategyzer. In a couple of weeks or a few months we will probably upgrade to Beta and drop the discount.

Besides a really cool and collaborative business model tool you will find an increasing amount of content like the above video inside our Strategyzer Academy.

A prototype version of this video was posted on this blog earlier last year. Does this sound like you? You strive to help companies unlock potential by using better business design techniques. You have already done so by researching, applying and "teaching" practical and visual business design tools, in particular the Business Model Canvas and the Value Proposition Canvas.

Your research on interesting cases, their business model mechanics and their transformation into remarkable presentations and stories will transform the way people design businesses around the globe.

Newton the Alchemist

You work from home, anywhere in the world, and ensaio fotografico flexible working hours potentially part-time. You have a deep curiosity for how organisations work and could work better. Your "hunger" to do your best work ever is insane and you are more motivated and better qualified than anybody else to do this job. You have a business research read more, potentially a PhD, but also have practical experience in a company, as a consultant, or as an entrepreneur.

Your conceptual and practical understanding check this out the Business Model Canvas is proven. Alchemist, you are NOT an asshole. You will put together amazing case studies and stories that help people understand business model innovation and transformation. What I'm taking about here are not the traditional text-heavy Harvard Business School cases, useless science or the alchemist, but beautiful, simple, and captivating presentations and stories that open people's eyes to the potential and particularities of business model innovation cf SunEdisonRe-Inventing How We Do Start-Ups!

You will work with me and potentially others from the team on a regular basis via Skype. Have you ever been in one of those endless meetings, where smart people sit around a table, talk a lot, but don't get to a real outcome?

Over the last couple of years I saw first hand how visual methods like the Business Model Canvas can end blah blah blah and enable clear and tangible strategic conversations. This post shares a wonderful story that illustrates that. My biggest learning from working with senior executives, consultants and entrepreneurs around the globe was that we waste a lot of time with talking without necessarily understanding each other.

This happens because we just use words, without using visual concepts and tools that could facilitate the conversation. It seems that the higher you get in the hierarchy of an organization, the worse it gets.

As if the problems "at the top" were easy enough to discuss alchemist sketching them out, without making them tangible. Have you ever seen a board room with a whiteboard? And guess what happens if to those smart business people who only use words and no shared visual language:. Of course the above are my own experiences and opinions, so I was blown away when my friend Lisa K Solomon who's upcoming book you should get shared the story of Sue with me:. I was sitting in a senior manager meeting listening to a perfectly normal PowerPoint alchemist by one of our regional directors.

He alchemist a complex problem - a large asset that we are contractually obligated to maintain is conflicting with another priority project alchemist what should he do? He was alchemist for honest-to-god help, but after delivering his PowerPoint, the science managers in the room were still having trouble seeing the big picture.

There were many partners, influences, and beneficiaries along with many policy options - managers tried to give feedback but they spent a lot of time asking the director to reexplain the context. Finally during science lull while people were the lunch, the director just asked point blank, "does anyone have any tools or suggestions on how I can better manage this complex issue?

The regional director is really genuinely useless in working with the canvas and asked if I'd be willing to help his team get started gulp! Our asset manager came over and said, "hey, I know that thing! He invited me to audit the meetings with the consultant which I've started - it was surreal to sit in on a meeting where they reviewed an empathy map!

Just to give some quick context, I never actually speak during senior manager meetings as an executive assistant. But I really just could not hold it in any longer - I had to "whip out" the business model canvas.

I'm a little terrified of what I may have started but I know that it the be a great tool for many of our project directors so I'm going to be "whipping it out" a lot more. And of course the Business Model Canvas is just one visual tool that works. In my two previous blogposts I talked about our new plug-in, the Value Proposition Canvas. In this post I outline how you can use the tool to not only design Value Propositions, but also to test them.

You can use it as a poster cf image below to design better Value Propositions with sticky notes, useless science or the alchemist. However, to make sure your customers really want what you design, you'll need to test all the assumptions you make with the VP Designer Canvas. We already now know how to do this kind of designing and testing for business models: Steve Blank has impressively demonstrated this in his work.

This will help us more systematically work towards achieving what the startup movement calls a product-market fit or problem solution fit. The VP Designer Canvas can add two crucial things to this process that are currently missing. Alchemist them to the mix will bring us to a whole new level. In science such a significant bias would invalidate your results all together, useless science or the alchemist.

WHAT and your customer assumptions i. The latter is something you can observe and alchemist even before designing an MVP. Let me walk you through a rough step by step process of alchemist to use the VP Designer Canvas for testing.

In reality, of course, these steps will be less sequential and much more messy. You'll also want to adapt this alchemist to your needs and circumstances. You can use the trigger questions in the poster and in my last more info if you need help. You described who you think customers are and what you think would create value for its carta de apresentacao da empresa comportamento. Talk to as many potential customers as possible to verify if they really are trying to get those JOBS done that you described in the VP Designer Canvas.

Find out if those JOBS are crucial to them or unimportant? What I mean with that is going beyond simply talking to customers, but not yet building an MVP. The design professions have several techniques to achieve that. Adjust which pains and gains you want to focus on, based on your customer insights.

Then redesign your Value Proposition accordingly. They address a few really well! The VP Designer Canvas will serve as your map to permanently track assumptions and tests, while you're pivoting through the Lean Startup process.

The moment this circle ends is when you've achieved a fit between your Value Proposition and what your Customers expect. This is what the startup movement calls product-market fit or problem-solution fit. It's when you build stuff that customers really want!

Don't hesitate to give me your feedback, since this process is just a first suggestion of how to use the Value Proposition Designer Canvas. Yet, there is no underlying conceptual tool that accompanies this process. The Canvas with its 9 building blocks focuses on the big picture.

The tools work best in combination. One does not replace the other. In my next post I'll outline how you can use it for testing in combination with the Customer Development process by Steve Blank and the Lean Start-up process by Eric Ries.

The Value Proposition Designer Canvas will allow you to better describe the hypotheses underlying Value Propositions and Customers, it will prepare you for customer interviews, and it will guide you in the testing and pivoting.

The purpose of the tool is to help you sketch out both in more detail with a simple but powerful structure. Through this visualization you will have better strategic conversations and it will prepare you for testing both building blocks. The goal of the Value Proposition Designer Canvas is to assist you in designing great Value Propositions that match your Customer's needs and jobs-to-be-done and helps them solve their problems.

This is what the start-up scene calls product-market fit or problem-solution fit. The Value Proposition Designer Canvas helps you work towards this fit in a more systematic way. First let us look at customers more closely by sketching out a customer profile. I want you to look at three things.

Start by describing what the customers you are targeting are trying to get done. It could be the tasks they are trying to perform and complete, the problems they are trying to solve, or the needs they are trying to satisfy. Now describe negative emotions, undesired costs and situations, and risks that your customer experiences or could experience before, during, and after getting the job done. Rank each pain according to the intensity it represents for your customer. Is it very intense or is it very light.

For each pain indicate how often it occurs. Now describe the benefits your customer expects, desires or would be surprised by.

This includes functional utility, social gains, positive emotions, and cost savings. There have been several cases where he got it mostly right and just needed a couple hints from Conan, or where he got it all right but only realized it after Conan did. There was one occasion where he did get it right, and another where he not only got it right, but got details that Conan missed. However, Shinichi's father Yuusaku is just as good a detective as he is, if not even better. He's only useless because he's simply almost never there and he'd rather continue writing about mysteries than solving them.

Ran's mother Eri Kisaki is a highly successful lawyer and is actually quite competent at detective work when the need arises. However like Yuusaku above, she only makes a paltry handful of appearances in the series. If anything; Megure is perhaps the most worthless of the adults - he's so strictly adhered to police code that he refuses to take a leap of faith and think maybe not all cases are like the ones you learn about in the police academy.

The Police also isn't completely useless, they are pretty competent at what they are doing, it is just that the cases shown are not solvable without thinking out of the box like Conan does. There are even police officers like Miwako Sato, Wataru Takagi, Kansuke Yamato and Yui Uehara who are able to solve a good chunk of many cases on their own. Heiji's father, chief commissioner of the Osaka Police Department Heizo Hattori, who in addition to being very smart is also an uber-badass.

Being a series intended for kids, Digimon tends to apply this; to which degree varies from series to series: Digimon Adventure played it straight; since no adult had a Digimon partner even though some of them didn't need oneand only Digimon are powerful enough to fight another Digimon, it meant that parents had to watch their kids saving the world. That doesn't stop some parents to fight back even if it's futile or help their children to figure out a semi-cryptic prophecy. Digimon Adventure 02 is even more straight about this, since even the adult villain was ultimately a puppet for the Big Bad which the kids then had to defeat.

Digimon Tamers averts it, since even though adults still don't have Digimon partners, they are able to kill Digimon by other means, know a lot more about them than the kids, provide technical support and ultimately it's them that make it possible for the Big Bad to be defeated. Digimon Frontier only has human adults in the backstory, and have the kids saving the world by themselves since all the Digimon some of them "adults", so to speak die at one point even if not permanentlyso it plays the trope very straight.

Digimon Xros Wars plays it straight in a similar way to Frontiersince the adults remain completely unaware that Digimon even exist. In The Drifting Classroomevery adult in the school ends up dead or insane within the first few volumes. In FLCL most of the adults are more immature than the children in the story. In Fruits Basketvirtually every adult is neglectful or outright abusive: As a child, Yuki is forced to stay with a person who verbally abuses him and his mother brushes his complaints off.

Kyo is completely hated by his father, who does absolutely nothing to prevent him from being locked up upon graduation. Akito's father is dead and her mother outright hates her. Rin is abandoned by her parents, so they are unaware when she is pushed out a window and locked up in a room. All of the older servants in the household allow Akito to act freely, because they feel that the God of the Zodiac has the right to treat the Zodiac any way. Also, Kyoko's parents neglected her, and kicked her out of her house after getting in a fight trying to quit her gang.

Her father tells Katsuya that he's crazy when he tells him that he hopes to marry her. Subverted by Hanajima's family who did everything they could to help her with her ESP, including transferring her to a new school when she was bullied and Kyoko herself who did such a good job raising Tohru that Tohru considered her words as lessons to get through life. Hiro's mother is loving, if ditzy, and Kagura's mom worries about her daughter's well-being at one point, she discourages Kagura from attending an event that Akito will be at, implicitly fearing that Akito would hurt Kagura like Kisa was hurt.

Zigzagged in the case of Kisa's mother. She failed to notice that her daughter was horrifically bullied at school and is upset with Kisa for not telling her about it, but then Tohru explains how the worst part of bullying is that the victim believes they're at fault and does their best to hide it from people who could help them.

Kisa is then sent to live at Shigure's house for awhile so she and her mom can recover, but her mom calls often to see how Kisa's doing and make sure she's eating well. Completely subverted in Fullmetal Alchemist: They are highly skilled, extremely intelligent, and almost as central to the plot as Ed and Al.

Justified in the second volume of Young Avengers - Mother is a trans-dimensional parasite, who feeds on kids and teenagers with reality warping superpowers and one of her abilities is to hide her existence from adults, so they won't belive their kids telling them about her and won't notice her activities, even as they're happening in front of them.

Celestia and Luna can be reasonable authority figures when given the right evidence They are certainly friendly and caring, but the Useless part comes from them being oblivious to a single student ruling the school for years by terrorizing all the other students, and Luna being easily fooled by falsified evidence in a scene pretty much designed to give credibility to the Satellite Love Interest.

I can confirm you do NOT need to make elixirs to discover more elixirs, and I can confirm for sure that Wrath recipes work - I discovered one of the TBC elixirs by making a Wrath potion Indestructible potion.

The discovery rate is really low though, useless science or the alchemist, science pick a cheap elixir or potion, line up a hundred, and just burn through them and hope for the best.

The type of recipe being made has no effect on the type that will be discovered. Grey science can still useless a discovery confirmed by me personally ; at the time I made the post this happened at a VERY reduced rate and it was actually more resource-efficient to keep doing orange or yellow recipes, but with 5.

Comment by jmarrik Alchemy: However, it is not an all-powerful art; it is impossible to create something out of nothing. If one wishes to obtain something, something of equal value must be given. This is the Law of Equivalent Exchange, the basis of all alchemy.

In accordance with this law, there is a taboo among alchemists: Comment by neonjohn I have to say, I'm constantly in awe of the pathetically small number of recipe items in the game for alchemy. I have a fetish for recipe items, though. Might be a bit biased. Comment by Sam97 I think that creators should add some BoE mounts and companions for alchemy profession. I checked my available recipes based on Becks' list to be sure I had them but I do not.

I'll research my missing recipe and move on but check the requirements of any spec you choose so that you can budget your gameplay time accordingly. Profession Perk Regardless of their skill, all alchemists learn Mixology, which increases the effectiveness and duration of all concoctions they are able to make.

Mixology only affects Elixers and Flasks it does not affect potions at all. Comment by cimerone I realize that this is a very old thread, but I have been Googling for an hour now and can't seem to find the answer.

Anyone who has an idea where to look please let me know and thank you in advance! Comment by AmandaFry I just had my 3rd alchemist boosted but, I'm drawing a blank as to how I get the pandarian recipes. Since my character was already lvl 60 when I boosted I got the professions as well. You then have to go back and learn all the patterns you want to learn. Well I don't want to spend the gold learning all the useless lvling patterns, I just want to learn the useful ones for current content and, there are none at the trainer.

Matter of fact I'm standing in Klaxxi'vess trying to learn patterns from Kil'zit, and the two patterns they are supposed to sell you, so you can learn new patterns, aren't here Comment by Kilrathi3 Alchemists, are you looking for Transmute: Primal something that are Dropped by: Well don't go to shatter halls reg, its only in roic and the very last one to take out too.

Home yourself to the area so you can hearth out and run back for rep at least. After 4 runs on roic, no patterns dropped, but did get some primal mats Shattered Hand Executioner Drop Chance: Primal Earth to Life and such. I don't believe it at this point but will run a few more times, should get 1 at least in a dozen attempts.

Maybe trying to discover these is faster but no luck that route either being at already and they are a 1x daily attempt Comment by jordexciu Anyone know the most cost effective way to learn new transmutes?

When he gains the poison immunity alchemist class ability, he becomes immune to disease as well. This ability replaces swift alchemy.
