Did he died?

  • #1
    This is a rather unconventional post that is intended to explain in one way or another that I. . . iz. . . back!

    Kind of. . .

    Some of you might recognize me, but to refresh the memories of those that don't this is my channel and these are some of my guides. Long story short, I stopped posting videos abruptly after promising many more guides which is why I'm making this thread.

    Before I get to the point, an explanation is warranted on where I've been. If you followed my streaming, you probably know I stopped when I was diagnosed with Crohn's. I needed to shift my content to a platform that allowed for a more flexible use of time (YouTube) so that I didn't stream for hours each night. My Crohn's is rather mild, but it periodically makes me tired to the point that it wouldn't be fair to my viewers (or myself). So I adjusted my diet (fruits and veggies galore!), brushed up my video editing skills and moved to YouTube!

    Around my second guide I went in for a (now regular) blood test to "wrap up" my diagnosis before committing to a treatment plan. They were looking at my liver, specifically, to ensure it was healthy enough to tolerate various potential prescriptions. Lo and behold, my enzyme levels were elevated. There are a number of reasons this could be, but two ERCP's and many weeks later (I wouldn't stay under the first time) I was diagnosed with PSC. At that point I needed a break from everything to sort out how this would affect my life and what I needed to do going forward.

    For those who didn't click the links (or did and don't even. . .) Crohn's causes inflammation in my colon (large intestines) that can trigger a "flare" wherein I experience fatique and symptoms similar to your typical food intolerance. If poorly managed this inflammation can spread and lead to surgery/cancer. PSC is basically the same thing but in my liver where my bile ducts are inflammed. PSC is currently considered untreatable outside of a transplant when my liver (inevitably) fails. Put them together and I need to eat much more than your average bear to even hope to maintain my present weight as my body has trouble breaking down and absorbing food.

    I've come to terms with my situation and am adequately prepared to manage my symptoms thanks to an incredibly early diagnosis. Basically, I'll be periodically shoving tubes down my throat and up my butt to make sure my organs aren't trying to mutiny. . . joy. . . I was going to return to making guides before 1.0.8 hit, but my computer caught fire one night when I was (luckily) there to catch it. I spent the following weeks piecing together a new computer. I still have the burnt cables/HDDs so I should probably take pictures for show and tell ;P

    TL;DR: I have Crohn's (periodic russian roulette food intolerance-like symptoms), PSC (gives me the liver of a raging alcoholic and skinny jeans), my computer caught fire and I have a new computer.

    Real life srz bsnz out of the way, I want your imput on what to do with my channel! I could continue on with precisely the same style of guide, but I'm wondering if more of you prefer shorter/more frequent mini-guides in contrast to the longer/in-depth guides I have now. I enjoy making these builds to share with you, but I want to make sure you can tolerate watching them ;P

    Your thoughts/questions below!

    Wow... man... Sorry to hear about all of that stuff. That surely is a whirlwind of news. I truly hope things work out for the best for you.

    As for feedback on your videos, I'll be very honest with you here, as long as the content is good and the narration isn't littered with cursing and that kind of stuff, I tend to like most of the user-created guides, streams, etc. that people share here. I even like KageKaze despite the fact that his videos are approximately 81273812732131 hours long!

    If you are serious i do not mean to offend, but it's: "Did he die?" or "has he died?"
    and keep the videos simple but fast paced.

    Or are you using the catchphrase "Did He Died?" which is a catchphrase generally posted by people attempting to troll in the comment sections of youtube videos depicting physical injuries or accidents, such as fail videos. Although the expression had its beginning as a troll-bait containing a grammatical error, it has been increasingly used in comments without any context, regardless of whether there’s a reason to even question if anyone might have died in the video, if that's is the case, fail trolling.

    Very good that you caught PSC early on and hopefully everything goes well with your treatment Muze!

    Was wondering where you've been the last 3 months. Glad you're somewhat recovering and maybe we see some content from you in the near future. :)

    Ha. Bagstone.

    Welcome back, Prozaic mate :) looking forward to seeing those awesome guides of yours yet again.

    For starters I think you could make a patch analysis. You are great at finding out whether a skill is viable or not, and we've had some recent changes to a couple skills that might allow for some different builds (Disintegrate, Rapid Fire, Firebats). Guides about those would be awesome.

    I would also love to hear your thoughts on coop-focused skills. How much efficiency do they add to the party? How high is the coordination requirement for it to work properly (Cyclone compared to Exploding Palm, for instance)? Which skills should be swapped out for those (for instance, taking out Serenity for the Monks as survivability isn't as big of a issue in a party)?

    Also, I'm probably going to start playing D3 regularly again in the next week, so let me know if you need help with anything (coop build testing, funny clips where your ally does dumb things :P).

    You got crohn's disease because you didn't stack resists high enough, noob!

    I just like the way it sounds and for those that have watched my videos/stream it's how I normally talk :P

    I've got something in the works for the patch, probably the same as my 1.0.7 update but with focus on the bolded skills.
