If you take the s off it works for me
http://rephial.org/nightlies

So rephial.org can be accessed with both HTTP and HTTPS
and the list is blocked when it is accessed with HTTPS.

In that case, the protocol-relative URL probably can fix the problem.
remove the protocol from the link in the IFRAME tag; change it as follows:
src="//buildbot.rephial.org/builds/master/builds.html"

To DL37 and CL29 with my first "detects fearable" Blackguard. It's a lot of fun having a different detectable monster list than any other class! Thanks for making that happen, Nick!

I'm not relying only on Seek Battle for detection, but trees keep sneaking up on me, which is kinda fun and weird.

I usually just walk up to them, speed up if I need to, activate taunt, hit them with slow monster (which wakes them) and attack. If it's someone I have to be careful that they don't get a hit on me, I'll try to time my attacks so I move back when it's their turn to move. I'm used to shoot-and-scoot attacks from primarily playing rangers and mages.

What if the monster is awake?

I lurk for them in a corridor with a corner. Speed up right before they turn the corner, turn on taunting, hit them with slow monster, etc.

Loving this new Blackguard. The mechanics instantly transformed my usual deliberate, cautious "explore every corner" habits into a fast diving sociopath that resents every round not spent fighting something.

Mission acconplished.

Absolutely agree. The spells with their own blow counts means I'm utterly pasting baddies using weapon that would otherwise be too heavy (found 'Totila' early, and I was all "YES!").

Plus, the fact that you heal a little every time you use a spell (and I use Leap Into Battle pretty much every round if I don't have something better to cast) definitely gives that "Tough as Oak" feel that I like in my barbarian-style characters. My blackguard definitely feels much tougher than a similar Warrior. And there is nothing more satisfying than an enemy turning around and fleeing in terror, only for me to LEAP after and murder them with extreme prejudice.

One interesting thing I've noted is that Rings of Damage are no longer the godsend that they are with Warriors, at least in the early to mid game (I'm at like DL40 or something). When you're swinging for 1 or 2 blows, rather than 3 or 4, an extra +5 damage becomes much less important.

Also I really like how much I'm using my spells, even from the beginning. This is definitely a nice change of pace from the paladin, who I find generally plays more like a weak fighter with renewable Cure Light Wounds potions than a Holy Warrior until late into the midgame.

Thanks, guys!!! Me and Nick and everyone else who contributed are, I'm sure, happy that you and others are enjoying it.

So one thing I noticed with Leap into Battle. If you target a monster behind another monster, then it seems that your character will attack *both* monsters, not just the one they hit first, or the one targeted. Is that intentional?
