    @lloyd-t-prendergast Not correct, had questions about all 4 despite only indicating that I'd obtained Wyrmlad alone.

    I'd bet they'd absolutely want to know what motivates players to get certain monsters!
    That said, you're completely right that the first question was which ones did you get. But, like I said, the last few questions are unanswerable if you don't have the monster. And you can't complete the survey without answering every question.
    I like data-driven conclusions. My point is they're going to get skewed and unreliable data based on the wording of the questions.

    So those surveys we get a pop up for in game. They have questions that presuppose we've obtained each of the monsters (eg. How likely would you get this monster again?). And the way the survey is, it has to be answered. Why not an option for "I didn't get this monster"? Or questions like "Why didn't you get this monster?" (answer: I couldn't afford it!).

    Just saying. Whatever results you're getting are going to be skewed based on how these questions, and answers, are worded.

    Added Zizania and Silverleaf. Corrected a couple minor errors in the macros and added Nanovirus to the skill filters.

    Added the 'official' combat role designations to each monster. Just use the dropdown to select the role. It's simple enough, I don't think I want to bog down the file with more macros.

    At any rate, updated through Dr. Marihelson.

    It's more involved, obviously, but if I want to find a good control monster from a particular book, I filter to that book (and legendary monsters only of course). Then I sort by speed (obviously, the faster a control monster is, the better off you'll be). After that, if you're looking for a monster who has control skills, I hit the skills buttons at the top for additional filtering. Just do one at a time. See who stuns. See who freezes. See who possesses, activates cooldowns, drains stamina, etc. Then you can use that "Select" column (just put an 'x' in it) and click the Star at the top and it'll filter to just those monsters for you to look at.

    @ilmyfantasyil I have considered something like that. And for a lot monsters, they would fit neatly right into those categories. But then you've got monsters that could fit into multiple categories, depending on the skill set you decided to run and runes to equip. Take Tempest. He can be a controller (AoE stun and AoE blind with speed runes equipped) or as an attacker (with strength runes equipped). It all depends on how the player decides to use him.
    Or Warmaster Ragnarok. He's officially designated as a control monster, but he's also an excellent supporter.

    When I'm working with these stats, I generally try to keep things as objective as possible. One number compared to another to see which is objectively better. I don't want to leave things open to interpretation or draw conclusions (on the spreadsheet that is).

    That said, I'll do some more thinking on it.

    @navspice Thanks! Glad you find it useful. If you, or anyone for that matter, think something might need to be included, just let me know.
