Looking for a list of rollable weapons

Post by Afterburner » Wed Sep 01, 2010 3:46 am

Upgrading from your n00b weapon is hard if you don't know what's out there that you can get without help.

I am specifically wondering if support beams are rollable, but would appreciate more general info. All the online databases list rollable nanos, but none list rollable weapons.

Good lord, what an obnoxiously preachy page. I jumped through a few of the guy's hoops to view the page, and still can't get full functionality out of it. Shame, because it looks exactly like what I'm looking for.

Thanks anyways.

That's the same link as above.

Guy doesn't want me using adblocker. Okay, I think that's my business and not his, but okay. So I load up IE (which I never use except when I need to view a FireFox-hostile or AdBlock-hostile website), and his page tells me I can't use the query more than 4 times a day from the same IP address unless I enable referrers.

Well, as far as I know, referrers are enabled in my copy of MSIE because I never bothered to disable them. But the page still tells me that I'm on restricted queries because my referrers are disabled. But he's got a link that tells me how to Make It Go(tm). So I go to the link and follow all the steps to Make It Go(tm). And I'm still on restricted queries, because the steps don't work.

And that's pretty much all the effort I'm willing to put into viewing that page.

arpa3.net is really the site you want to use, but if you don't want to disable adblock for it, you can also use http://www.auno.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (or http://www.xyphos.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;):

Search for the weapon you are interested in, such as for example a Support beam.
Click on the result you want to see, for example Ql61 Blunt Support Beam.
The patch number the weapon (or any item in general) was introduced can tell a lot about it. Our Ql61 Blunt Support Beam lists Patch 11.0 11.4 13.9.1 15.0.1.
This means the item was introduced with patch 11.0 and modified for whatever reason in any of the later patches. In general, items that aren't nodrop and were introduced before patch 14.0 are rollable. Non-nodrop weapons introduced with later patches such as 14.2.1 or 14.9, are often dyna loot.

This method won't always work, it helps to have some knowledge on which patch changed what if you want to use this. For example the Manex Catastrophe December is from before patch 14.0 and was indeed initially rollable, but was at some point changed to dyna-loot by funcom. It's a viable alternative if you don't want to use arpa3.net though :)

But I did! That's why it's annoying. I did everything the page asked me to do, and I still can't get unrestricted access.

Honestly, that's kinda wierd.

I went into my adblocker preferences and told it to allow just a single source string for google ads, and can use the site just fine. The ads don't even actually show up - but by including that one (it was the most commonly called google advert source) exception, the site works for me.

The browser I used to view the page is MSIE. You can't install AdBlocker in MSIE even if you wanted to. AdBlocker is a Firefox-only product.

I can get access to the search thingy. I just can't get unlimited use like it says I can. It tells me that I can only do 4 searches in a day. It tells me that I could perform unlimited searches if I enable a feature which, as far as I am aware, is already enabled. It tells me that if that follow certain steps, I will enable the feature in the event that it is disabled. I followed those steps, and I still have limited searches per day.

I mean, it's not that big a deal. I wouldn't have even given it a 2nd thought if not for the accompanying lecture about what a bad person I am for using ad-blocking software.

It is if the site doesn't work:P. Difference is that my link directs you to a page that already displays the results :).

Strange thing with google chrome: first time I visit arpa3 it gives the error, but if I just go there again the error is gone.

Yeah, that website is a bit of a whore but there is a lot of info there if she lets you in. The other alternative is to look at comments on auno, as often there is a where-to-get-it post.

Arpa3.net is a horrible site that should not be viewed by anyone, ever. Honestly, I've never needed anything more than auno - It's enough to tell you if an item is rollable or not.

There is a lot of material there if you can get past the adblock hating scripts. Then again, I didnt find it any more trouble to view than working around the horrible themes-and-avatar-on-the-right as found on another AO site with content worth looking at.
