Either way you say it, the stats aren't right. It's supposed to say "Ranged attack +8, ranged accuracy +8, Dark waether: ranged accuracy -8" dark weather on the Diabolos items takes away from the bonuses. I've seen someone wearing this, and another person wearing the earring. If I could have taken a screen shot I would have. maybe I will post one sometime for everyone.

#Medicinebow, Posted: Jan 26 2006 at 11:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So, from what I'm getting from this post so far... you have to fight some sort of octopus, or maybe octopi, and since octopus have 8 legs, thats where the stats on this item came from...

It's diabolos' torque, you get it from the mauling of Diabolos, the avatar of dreams.

So you get 8 ranged accuracy all the time. Then in dark weather you get 8 ranged attack and 8-8=0 ranged accuracy. Is that right?

For what it's worth, the name of this item is actually "Diabolos's Torque".

this is why I hate the english language at times lol~

so many rules, and so many exceptions to the rules, only to find out that sometimes some rules and exceptions don't apply under certain circumstances.

If the noun is singular, you put 's regardless of whether it ends with S or not.

E.g., "the octopus's tentacles are long."

If it really matters, both ways are correct. English has many "exceptions", this is one of them. Look up a few references on possesive singular nouns ending in 's'.

The general rule seems to be dependant on how it sounds when pronounced. If you think Diabolos' Torque sounds better than Diabolos's then write it that way.

I dont have this item, however if it's spelled "Diabolos Torque" that is also correct if we assume that its not the possesive, but rather the description of the torgue.
More nit-picking :P

the 's in that sentence is used to show the possession of the tentacles. The octopus is in possession of thetentacles... gotta enjoy a bit of nitt-picking ^^
