Item Database - Self Illumination

Self Illumination Icon #84722 Self Illumination is really not the original name of the formula, but one unlucky Nanotechnician managed to cast this one on himself in front of other Nanotechnicians. Even though the situation then was quite dramatic, today they laugh about the incident remember how he lit up parts of Omni Forrest.
This nano will inflict 830 points of radiation based damage every few seconds.

looks good for PvP
Nanotehnpoir @ 2004-09-22 16:01
Looks good? Hehe, to me it's really great=P Cast ns2 and let the opponent die while you nuke plus dot them... this dot.. if you cut the damage in half does 4776 damage in pvp ^^, but the problem is.. the requirements are very hard to get... Alien Level 28... thats not the easiest thing to do hehe.
Notumsurrrge @ 2004-09-24 06:36
Pissed: because MP's pet isn't AI level locked and is relatively easy to attain. Especailly after the latest AXP nerf, its gonna be impossible to get AL28 Happy: well its more dmg, i'd like to see it in action first and I hope there are new nano effects instead of the boring and tedious SL blue ones :(

also i got a question. if I have Ancient Matrix 10, the DoT's dmg/2s is 3220-3440 or is that a one time nuke accompanied by the 830-860 DoT
Nanotehnpoir @ 2004-09-26 22:16
Oh I see here... you have to have all those perks... It looks like to me... that in 30 seconds... you have the dot.. plus the other damages... I think... but the requirements.... are insane, so this nano does quite an amount of damage... but again lvl 28 AL is insane
cybo @ 2004-10-10 02:08
With Ancient Matrix 10 (and AI lvl 28....), this nano would deal 3320..3440 + 2490..2580 + 1660..1720 + 830..860 = 8300..8600 direct damage plus 11620..12040 DoT damage. Total damage = 19920..20640 !
cybo @ 2004-10-10 02:13
Furthermore, the dot effect isn't done by a nanoprogram which is run in the NCU of the target, unlike other dots. Soooo i think chain-casting wouldn't erase the DoT effects of the earlier casts....
But 19920-20640 every 3 secs ( 6129 dps minimum ) seems a bit overpowered to me ~.~
cybo @ 2004-10-10 02:18
Nevermiiiiinnnd i checked the SL doc dots and they are in the same way. So it won't stack. but anyway that's still 8300+830=9130 damage per nuke :) (1st dot tick) wich is more than izgimmer's ultimatum maximum damage
cybo @ 2004-10-10 02:22
and no cyberdeck ~.~
cybo @ 2004-10-10 03:24
i'm back ~~ too bad you can't delete post so i'll have to add one more : i didn't the if ancient matrix xx untrained sooo the damage done by direct nuke is only 4050... confirms that playing an NT is really masochism...
Palerider @ 2004-10-22 00:22
The DOT looks kinda nice but ... Alienlvl 28 req ... is fc silly? They dont really want us to use this DOT
Xardass @ 2004-11-03 10:30
well the nuke is great :-) ( hope they will modify the Alien xp u get wen u kill a mob |and i mean rising it | and then it will be more fun going 2 alien's.BTW can some1 tell me how many alien ataks are in a week?
ericdraven @ 2004-11-22 17:46
With they lowered the reqs from AI28 to AI24 (as well as the other DoTs). But that's probably just a bug. :p
Sypiken @ 2004-12-16 18:52
Well, good things \ Bad things about it..

Alienlvl 28, Bad... Nearly impossible too reach
Rec's, good becouse they make lower lvl NT's that are nanomage able to actually cast this. (Prevents FC from overusing lvl req)
100% Nanoresist, will be a pain too land this great thing in pvp as some proffessions can get nearly 3k NR.
Damage, great.
No Cyberdeck req: JUST ABOUT GREAT!
Abalz @ 2004-12-28 03:21
Cybo is way wrong about its DPS, its not 6129 dps .. He needs to learn how to read DB entries.. For some reason he is adding ALL of the DD damages up, but it will only do those if a higher level of AM is untrained.. so you don't add them you fool.
Mindori @ 2005-04-18 19:02
So this requires what, 3.6k nanoinit to cap at full agg? FC strikes again :/
Cratpoir @ 2005-06-05 03:49
This Dot is truly wonderful, you get the 3220-3440 nuke w/ AM 10 when you first cast it + the 830-860 dot in there.. + nukes and perks... and you have one awesome NT.. stupid req is AI level 28.. don't think Anyone has gotten there yet.. there may be one or two peopel who are at AI level 26. but certainly dificult to get AI level 28
Abalz @ 2005-06-09 20:51
Cratpoir, you just posted the other day and said it was AI 28, and obviously have been going off the olderposts.. but they dropped the requirement to AI level 24, which with some work is do-able. Also, I know there is one person who hit AI 30 ;)
Cratpoir @ 2005-07-26 11:04
Yeah, I was outadted on that.. but still tough ;) And I think I can only name 1 nt who has gotten that/past it.. and that's Zeriddler.. but this DoT is "pretty" nice.. still not enough to make NT profession enough to be decent in PvP again against certain professions though.. but, FC doesn't want to help some professions :P and instead give them small stuff like this to try to make us feel like we're a lot more powerful ;P Hehe
dzzirt @ 2005-11-09 00:29
its not small stuff omg :) for MAs without hhab its so close to death after 1st dot like this.
dzzirt @ 2005-11-09 00:30
check trader's major for PvP plunder and divest nanolines and be happy with this dot.
Moniker @ 2005-11-26 04:31
Izemage Mastablasta Orgolf Perambur Rulaneda Satenia Skyn Zeriddler. So, funcom made a nuke speficially for 8 people? 8 People can use this. No one else.
Moniker @ 2005-11-26 04:35
specifically* Dont you think the alien level 24 req is a bit much if you can list the number of people who can use it in one line?
Fluke @ 2005-11-30 04:41
Well, makes it more special at least.
And I'm guessing that it may become more ppl at ai 24+ with time
oddworld @ 2005-12-05 11:21
i would love to see alien level 24 req on all the nifty kyr weapons people twink on at low levels.. now THAT would be screaming and bitching.. but nevermind f**king the NTs as usual.
Whitey @ 2005-12-09 06:21
According to auno, there are only 8 NT's who 'can' use this nano.. if they have it..

Damn reqs :/
mahou2 @ 2005-12-26 09:24
9 NTs actually ;)

Thankfully there's no lvl 220 req.
Kplayona @ 2006-01-16 23:30
LOl so stupid u need ai for the damn nuke why not say it? doesnt need sl im like woot then it says Ai levels 24 lmao :P so atleast say ai levels requiered ;P!
Msauss @ 2006-03-02 15:06
this nano is prolly only meant to give NT's a reason to get AI
genius71 @ 2006-03-18 01:41
one unlucky Nanotechnician managed to cast this one on himself in front of other Nanotechnicians. Even though the situation then was quite dramatic, today they laugh about the incident remember how he lit up parts of Omni Forrest. see?
Venderim @ 2006-10-05 05:33
Well I guess the AI lvl req is to reward the hard working NT's who have spent time and effort playing their profession and gaining axp rather than a vast number of NT's that kite their way to TL7 in a matter of a few weeks - days even. No top of the line DoT's for j00 hecknoobs :P
Painmaker2 @ 2006-11-18 19:12
Just started an nano-teck ... they are pretty fun... ^^ "Joho" is the name :P
alesicis @ 2007-04-18 02:26
hehe, now 44 nt's who can cast this
Dalek @ 2007-05-10 00:51
Nowdays it's not worth the time to cast this, in pvp, a triple is much more effective.

PVM its only worth casting on a mob that wont die before the dot runs out,
Dumbarajko @ 2008-02-26 16:20
Joho, you started and stopped :P
I suppose they are not that fun after all?
Yakobo66 @ 2008-09-29 13:03
with Detonation Matrix this is even more fun :D
Dancingrage @ 2009-03-14 13:05
With Detonation Matrix you NTs break 13k. Pwn hard goons, MPs are after you now.
furay @ 2009-07-20 11:33
this DoT alone does close to 16,000 damage and izgimmer's ultimatum will do an aditional 5,000 while this is running. if you use detonation matrix as well, over 130,000 damage can be inflicted before self illumination runs out, assuming everything hits for minimum damage and you dont use any perks =) [1 cast of SI, 3 DM's and 11 IU's]
Hbar @ 2009-12-07 10:00
Violet. Very violet.
Mcgellin @ 2010-05-04 07:21
Zomg, ive been pissed at the NT prof since day one then i saw this, now i have a reason to get to endgame :DD
Freyda @ 2011-07-29 19:43
I can't remember where do the components for this drop was it biodome or IS?
shaynd @ 2011-10-20 17:36
laviathon @ 2012-08-22 03:59
i have dis shiz man ima gonna use it soon on my nt :)
4 more ai dings to go...
mtngoat02 @ 2015-03-10 03:52
4800 nanoinit required to meet capped attack speed @ 1.25 while full def.
5550 nanoinit would be required to get this nano down to instant cast while full def if that were an option.
