My base hp is 1059. not 1069. it's not 1069, it never was 1069, and it never will be 1069. First of all, i don't idle in a useless cape like prism. When i'm not casting, i have umbra cape on, which has no hp.
Base HP does not matter when you are idling in regards to activating latent when nuking. If you idle at 1059, then equip a piece of gear with +HP while nuking your base HP becomes 1069.
...That doesn't even make sense. BASE hp doesn't change, except with sub/merits. base hp is NOT the same as the hp you have in nuke gear. Both are important. hp while nuking determines how much hp you need to activate it, while base hp determines how much -hp you need to activate the latent (which is based on how much hp you have while nuking). If my base hp was 1069, and nuking hp was 1069 then i'd need 812 hp, which would take -257 hp to reach, however if my base hp is 1059, and 1069 for nuking, then i'd still need 812, but to reach that i'd only need -247 hp. Unless that prism cape is permanently glued to my back, then simply taking it off is already -10 hp. If for some (idiotic) reason i wanted to, i could activate my sorc ring latent with abosolutely no -hp, by nuking in 1394 hp. Doing so wouldn't require me to lower my hp at all, i'd just need to add on 335 hp while nuking, unless you think taking off hp gear is the same as using -hp gear? lol.
The reason I pointed out Prism cape was because you said that it would make it easier to achieve latent wearing one. I have no idea when you set up your latent build in order to activate sorc. But if it was before the realization that cape did not count, then you got extremely lucky that the failure of your math abilities didn't hinder your activated ring.
Lucky? I'm lucky because i nuked once, and realized it did less damage then before, when i just used an int ring? I'm lucky because i then took 10 seconds to look at wiki where it clearly said the back slot didn't count towards the latent? Luck has nothing to do with it. Originally when i first put a -hp set together to activate it (at 73), it was not active, i was actually short by 1-2 hp, however i'm not retarded and noticed that it wasn't active (did less damage with sorc ring than with int ring..) and so i found out that the +hp on back didn't count.
I really hope that you never give people advice on how to activate the ring, while your setup does work, you very clearly can neither add or be taught.
Well, it's a good thing i'm too lazy to add anything, and instead use calc.exe...unless you think there's a problem with that? Or do you think i'm incapable of typing/copypastaing 5 numbers?
Equiping my nuke gear, and taking off zmitts, and cape leaves me at 1059 hp (no +/- hp on any of my gear).
1059*.76=804.84 Any HP lower than 804.84 would be active.
804/1059=0.75920679886685552407932011331445 Confirming that 804<804.84
1059-804=255 How much -hp i'd need to use to reach 804.
0-50-50-50-25-25-30-25=-255 Amount of -hp i used.
So, if there's a problem with my math, feel free to explain what i did wrong. I copy+pasted the numbers above into calculator, so zero chance of mistyping it into it without realizing, unless i typed it wrong above, and not only didn't notice when i read over once, but also after typing a paragraph explaining how i couldn't possibly have made any mistakes, which i wouldn't do unless i was 100% positive i didn't.
Either you're an idiot who thinks it's impossible to take off any +hp that i wear while nuking, for activating latent, or I need to stop feeding you
How much hp you have while nuking only
determines the exact hp you need to have less than, and has absolutely nothing
to do with how much -hp you need to use to reach that hp. See my example above about activating it at 1059 hp.
