Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I have not won a single game of JH, and I was getting sick of that.  So I wussed out and got on Easy, and went forth with Gunslinger, the build that I've always enjoyed playing back in DRL.

I could've had my first win yesterday (had two ADV 9mm Pistols, one of which had Ignite and Cold on it!), but in a rash to shoot fast, I forgot to heal and got YASD.  Today, I finally had my first win, and can sleep better at night knowing that I have won one game on JH (despite it being Easy).

Question: How does a weapon with both Ignite and Cold work?  Ignite was intrinsic to the weapon, while Cold was from a mod -- do they nullify their effects, stack on top, or only the last one applied works?  I think I only saw Frozen status applied on the mobs, but I could be mistaken.

I'm not going to discuss my "tactics" because I'm playing on Easy like a scrub, and well, I don't have the kind of time I used to have 10 years go to try all kinds of crazy things.  =)

Side point though: maybe in the next update, we can have the progression of traits chosen in the mortem like how we used to have in DRL.  That way, it makes it easier for folks to learn play styles and what-not.  I also liked the old screenshot of the final screen as a way of memorialising the win/death, but that can be something for the [far] future.

Congrats!

Unfortunately status effect nullify each other, so if you stack a cold or emp mod over a ignite weapon, the ignite is effectively lost.

What happens if I have one pistol with Ignite (pistol 1), and the other with Cold (pistol 2), while running Gunslinger?  What will proc then?

The weapons are treated fully separately.

Hey, congrats on your win!  :D

Careful, there.  Comparing JH to DRL is one of Kornel's pet peeves.  :P  Bring back kill percentages.

Ooh, this is valuable information.  Good to know!  :)

So... it is possible for a mob to be both frozen and burning?

Thanks Tormuse!  Not as illustrious as you though hahaha!

Wasn't really trying to compare to DRL, but more on feeding some things I find useful to eventually up my game.  =)

Illustrious or not, it's pretty rare to see mortems from you, so it's nice to see.  :)
