    [–] How to **not** fall when bouldering indoors [self] ex0- 0 points ago in climbing

    drop and roll when falling or jumping? Kinda like a parachute landing.

    A parachute landing in my mind is a roll. If you meant something else you can ignore my comment. Of course people land on their legs and roll backwards onto their backs. But not like a full roll.

    My gym is close to 2 indoor parkour places and we get a lot of those guys coming in thinking they'll wreck and getting shut down so they quickly switch to messing about and drop+rolls are common in that sport (activity?).

    [–] How to **not** fall when bouldering indoors [self] ex0- -10 points ago in climbing

    The only people I've ever seen rolling at my gym are the turn-up-once-and-wear-gloves crowd and they generally only do it once or twice before being told to knock it off. Never seen any serious climbers roll. Generally for two reasons: first, there isn't room. You're gonna hit someone or get landed on. Second it's unnecessary and looks completely stupid.

    [–] I love them ex0- 9 points ago in succulents

    Heavily sun stressed ghosties? The leaves don't look thin enough to be purple pearl/pvns.

    No probs - remember to check the plants daily for any sunburn. Back it up if they start getting bbq'd (assuming you're doing 14-15 hours of grow light/day).

    [–] How Hairy Joe quit his job. ex0- 1 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    told us about his greatest fear: to die as an unidentified John Doe.

    Hairy Joe was killed in a road accident. He was not identified by authorities and was buried in a mass grave.

    Move it closer to the plants. If it's more than ~5-8 inches away it's not doing much.

    [–] Unkillable mob glitch. ex0- 1 points ago in lotro

    Very well known bug as others have said. I used it to do my skill deeds.

    [–] Does somebody know what type of cactus this is? ex0- 2 points ago in cactus

    It's one with a fake flower glued on top of it that you should remove.

    [–] Starting to get into the cactus game ex0- 1 points ago in cactus

    Make sure you put a top cover on top of that soil. Gravel or aquarium stones or something. Just so that the plants aren't sitting on wet soil.

    [–] Sent my first trad lead! Only a diff but it's a start! ex0- 1 points ago in climbing

    It reminds me of Roaches upper as well. Decent guess I reckon.

    [–] Raid Roles ex0- -1 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in everquest

    I played ranger for 10 years from Velious onwards. If you raided in PoP and your goal was dps you needed to switch to melee once you were time geared in order to beat ranged parses. Then we got the elfshoe in Ikkinz (start of GoD raiding) and the dps just went up from there. mid-PoP/very very early GoD is the last time raiding rangers that didn't suck for dps used ranged damage (in that 10 year timeframe).

    [–] Climbing gyms are hot, but longtime climbers worry gym rats aren’t learning basic real-world safety ex0- 2 points ago in climbing

    Ditto this - I've never had so many individual people wanting to learn how to lead trad. I've come up with a cunning plan though: take each of them to a different crag and end up with a boatload of crag classics done while they second me to learn gear placement and anchor building skillz.

    It's time to learn lead climbing.

    You mean multipitch climbing, yes? Leading is what the OP is talking about doing..

    [–] Assassin build in a party without glass cannon. ex0- 2 points ago in DivinityOriginalSin

    I generally only play with Lone Wolf (either duo with friend if playing COOP or solo) so my info may not apply to this. I max Finesse & increase Memory to 14 or so before leaving Act1 on both archer and assassin type chars. Wits can wait till act 2 and above.

    Here's the assassin guide I use (not updated but you can figure out how to progress things based on the archer guide) and here is the archer guide.

    [–] Assassin build in a party without glass cannon. ex0- 1 points ago in DivinityOriginalSin

    By late game your build/stats will be such that you will almost always get to go first and even a glass cannon build will have enough armor/magic defense to survive the first wave of attacks. It's highly unlikely you'll be eating CCs before you get your turn (and if you do and the fight is lost, you're not playing any sort of weird no-save-no-reload game so you can reload and work out how to prevent it from happening in the next try).

    [–] Assassin build in a party without glass cannon. ex0- 2 points ago in DivinityOriginalSin

    I'd stick with that build to be honest. Your concern is that you'll be squishy. But realistically there's a lot of abilities on this char which will help with that - you've got movement skills, camouflage, uncanny dodge, etc.

    This game rewards damage over defense because dead things/knocked down things can't damage you (or your party). You'd be better playing another class entirely if you're not willing to embrace that concept.

    Rangers are melee DPS from late PoP (time gear) onwards.

    [–] Book recommendations on climbing/rigging sport routes safely ex0- 0 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in climbing

    Self rescue you won't learn by yourself, don't bother trying. Either accept that accidents are few and far between and that 99% of climbers have no real idea about it or find some professional instruction.

    Cleaning & abseiling are basic and you can look that up and practice it on the ground (if you can find a low starting bolt for a sport climb you can clip 2 draws to it and pretend the draws are bolts, that's worked for me when teaching people in the past). Abseiling shouldn't be necessary for sport unless you're super unlucky and are climbing in one of those backwards areas in the US where they think abseiling to clean anchors is normal practice.

    [–] Could I safely make my own anchors in Devils lake without taking a course? I simply dont have $200 or a friend that climbs. Or does anyone know someone in the area who would be willing to show a gumby the ropes? ex0- 7 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in climbing

    Some of us learned the same way. Bought dodgy gear off ebay and figured it out ourselves. Confused expression in one hand and a mobile in the other with a 'build an anchor!' video playing. Gear placement isn't that hard and neither is making a basic anchor plus there is an absolute shitload of good information out there to help with this. If you're approaching it from knowing how to lead sport the differences are pretty minor especially when you take into account the big difference between redpoint grade while sport climbing and beginner trad route grade.

    I'm always surprised at the frequency with which Americans in this sub jump to 'pay a guide' or 'go on a course'. Perhaps it's normal to have 400 bucks to waste on a day of learning stuff you could learn yourself for nothing?

    [–] Book recommendations on climbing/rigging sport routes safely ex0- -1 points ago in climbing

    Don't spend cash on a guide, books are a cheaper and adequate solution.

    There's loads of youtube videos that'll show you the same thing. However there's no 'rigging' involved in sport climbing so if you could clarify exactly what it is you're talking about we could prob link to some appropriate material.

    [–] Aussie climbers need to speak up, climbing being banned in the Grampians ex0- 1 points ago in climbing

    That's cool. Hopefully they feel the same way about climbers cause if they don't you've already lost that battle.

    Yes, absolutely you can.

    Do you have to build anchors yourself from gear or are there bolts? If there's bolts just use an opposing draw on each one. If you need to use gear there's plenty of good guides on youtube that'll explain how gear is placed (though ideally you should find someone to check your shit for you - maybe see if there's someone you can second for experience in gear placements?).

    Keep it simple and go with #2 in this image - 2 or more bomber pieces, clove each one, overhand at the bottom, locker on the end. Boom done.

    Here's another example on gear.

    [–] I absolutely hate seeing MMOs that are so close to what I want but falls short in a certain way ex0- 3 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in MMORPG

    If only it had an endgame and wasn't built around making every class able to do everything 'okish' because 'the trinity is dying and players need to be able to fulfill every role'.
