Re: Underlying cause and proposed solution to broken trust

Excellent answers Arman, thank you. I don't feel the current system is 40:40:20 atm (WH/SP/LSp), it feels more like 70:20:10 of what i can see on the npcs i kill, but its excellent if you're aiming for the 40:40:20 then just need to figure out why its not the way it is right now. Run simulations on...

Re: Underlying cause and proposed solution to broken trust

I'm advocating for toning down white hits maybe to a 50%/50% balance of specials vs white hits from the current, and to reduce movement stuns timers accordingly to the new timeframe of fights. And this is a fair advocation. You aren't the first to advocate for more of combat to be influenced by gui...

Re: Underlying cause and proposed solution to broken trust

So defacto DPS CAID got bigtime reduced, and non-DPS types got defacto increased CAID - which I doubt has been reflected in the guilds balance sheets accordingly making a huge imbalance in the system. Dan, DPS CAID was providing far more caid than it should... exponentially more the more CAID the o...

Re: Balances, or whatever

If You believe two third comes from the DA special..... it does not, I do most of my damage from the white hits now, not from the slash, you should try test it. And that I believe is the whole issue - you wizzes sees one thing, the players sees another - some just welcome the change, while I find i...

Re: Balances, or whatever

The point is zhar: the specials doesnt matter, they're only about 15% of the damage now, with white hits being king. So no matter which guild you choose, you have some emote being slightly different that to a small amount of damage, but most of your damage will come from your white hits - so the ga...

Re: Balances, or whatever

I would be very interested in how that would work, as the impact of those adjustments would have to be pretty big to shift Blademasters back to a range where they'd be a valid option. The math behind it all is pretty much stacked against that. However, I will wait things out till the dust has settl...

Re: Balances, or whatever

The Blademasters topic is a bit of a derail, and it is probably worthy of its own thread. But a few points... I am less in favour of players maintaining their 10 links if they leave. Guild loyalty should be rewarded over guild-hopping. So I think the solution may need to be something else than a per...
