feats – How exactly does Burn It! (and similar effects) affect splash and ongoing damage?

Burn It! increases your intital attack damage once (to each creature)

Burn It! provides a Status bonus to damage. Per the rules, you can only increase the damage of an attack by the highest of each typed bonus, once. Essentially, you do have bonus damage on your bomb and bonus damage on your splash, but they’re not allowed to happen together so you only apply one.

Again like checks, you may also apply circumstance, status, item, and untyped penalties to the damage roll, and again you apply only the greatest penalty of a specific type but apply all untyped penalties together.

Splash is a trait of the attack being used, so it is not it’s own damage instance and does not increase separately from the bomb damage. The status bonus can apply to everyone affected by the splash, because you are still only applying the bonus once.

It increases persistent damage less

The source of persistent damage does not matter. Persistent damage is a Condition that does not adopt traits or features from its origin. It is no longer an alchemical bomb, just persistent fire damage.

Number rounding

In Pathfinder 2e, all fractional numbers are rounded down unless otherwise stated.

You may need to calculate a fraction of a value, like halving damage. Always round down unless otherwise specified. For example, if a spell deals 7 damage and a creature takes half damage from it, that creature takes 3 damage.

Your example

  • Level 11 bomb (3d8+3 splash and 3 persistent)
  • Initial toss 3d8+5 splash (3+11*.25 = 3+ floor(2.75))
  • Persistent 4 fire

products – Will rendering random items in list affect SEO?

On my product details page, there is a section for related products (or similar products) and I only display 4 items in this list, but I want to render random items every time I open the details page, so visitors see various items constantly.

Will this affect my website ranking from an SEO perspective?

Will redirects affect SEO?

Does direct visits/traffic affect SEO?

I’m assuming by ‘direct link’ you mean a link that might be in an email or a that a user types directly into their browser.

The first question you have to ask is: How would Google know about your direct link? The assumption with a direct link is that the user didn’t use Google for a search.

It’s possible that Google would know because you have installed Google Analytics. Google has apparently said that that won’t use the data from GA to influence rankings. However, this is a matter of debate: Malicious bot – mulitple cities and browsers and https://www.seoblog.com/analytics-affect-rankings-seo/

As to what browsers the user is using, it’s probably irrelevant as that wouldn’t change the money that Google makes for displaying advertising, which is why they’re really in business.

My own personal experience is that direct visits/links may inform Google of content that Google has not indexed yet, and therefore their algorithm may put a priority on indexing the page with a direct link.

Do categories affect subcategories as much as homepage affects categories from an SEO pov

Say we have two identical websites, one with backlinks and traffic on the homepage which has categories x y z and one with a category which includes the x y z subcategories. The navigation sidebar shows the subcategories under the category. Would the first case get more views? A SEO setup that I’m working on requires me to do something like the second case and I’m not entirely sure whether it’ll work or not.

I wonder whether or not google would deem subcategories somehow less important and related to their respective categories as compared to homepage in relation to categories, therefore lowering SERP results of these subcategories.

aborting a committed transaction would affect atomicity or not?

If we could abort a committed transaction, what would happen with atomicity? Then durability would be affected and consistency, what about atomicity?

Note: I mean undoing a committed transaction by aborting

dnd 5e – Does either ability of the thrown weapon fighting style affect boomerangs?

The Fighting Style does little (if anything) for Boomerangs

The Fighting Style states:

You can draw a weapon that has the thrown property as part of the attack you make with the weapon. In addition, when you hit with a ranged attack using a thrown weapon, you gain a +2 bonus to the damage roll.

The first part applies only to weapons with the thrown property, which the Storm Boomerang (and “regular” Boomerangs) do not have.

The second part applies to attacks “using a thrown weapon”. Unfortunately 5e chose to use standard English, meaning we cannot actually tell whether this meant “a weapon that has been thrown” or “a weapon with the thrown property” which are rather different phrases. After all, you can throw a club (or any other weapon) by making a ranged improvised attack.

5e gives us no way of determining which of these phrases it meant so it will be up the GM to determine which interpretation to use and thus, whether or not Boomerangs and improvised ranged attacks using weapons benefit from the Fighting Style.

Personally, because “thrown” is a game-defined property, I would assume it is intended to mean that property; but 5e does not capitalize, italicize, or otherwise differentiate between something being thrown and something having the thrown property, so that’s just what I would do.


This makes no sense to me

This is why, at my own tables, I would have the Fighting Style work perfectly well with Boomerangs because they should have the thrown property (they have a short and long range and are literally thrown), but the rather unusual item (the Storm Boomerang) does not have this property. I would remedy this at my own tables.

elasticsearch – “should” query affect scoring, how to avoid that?

I would like to change the following ElasticSearch so the “should” array will not affect the scoring of the result. I want that the score will be calculated by the “query_string” for the name property only.

how can i achieve that with minimum code changes?
