Re: Autosneak

Thanks for the news. Is there any information available on the plan for the stealth rework? Currently it seems like equal skill in sneak/hide and awareness gives one around a fair chance of seeing a hide, but a poor chance of detecting a sneak. Additionally there seems to be very limited environment...

Autosneak

I saw this statement in the fact checking thread and it seemed surprising to me on multiple aspects. "Technically AA is a stealth class (better sneak & hide than RoI), they just don't have autosneak which I've always found odd since this ability is not being taxed as it's just a QoL upgrade." I've a...

Re: Is death or EQ-loss worse?

Said death protection fee is only payable in gold coins on Golden Isle, requiring dozens of burdensome trips. Which of course presents great opportunity for killing people at max encumbrance carrying the gold for the insurance. I love it.

Re: Non-combat OCC guilds

Sounds like a bunch of potential craft guilds not new occs to me.

Re: About Quest XP

Well I'm not a wizard, but fixing crappy old quests that give too little exp seems relatively easy to me by changing the quest to use a new quest bit (this is the flag that tracks who did what quest) and upping the reward to what the current appropriate level is. New players solve the quest and get ...

Re: 1h vs 2h & Dual Wielding

Ya I'm well aware of the unintended special attack power and the thread. But I'm a firm believer that the genie cant be put back in the bottle without breaking the will of the players, I dont see it happening. I suspect fixing 2h vs 1h and dual wield, at least removing the extra fatigue drain would ...

1h vs 2h & Dual Wielding

Since my return to almost 2 years ago now, it seems 1 handers have completely fallen out of favor. This is especially unfortunate for those guilds thematically or code restricted to use them. As more powerful 2 hand weapons have been created in the last 10 years it seems the response I've heard is j...

Re: Dulling vs undulling weapons and more.

Oh and I also agree that each weapon type should have a chance to earn a weapon of similar quality to the fabled FBB. I think coding an elite artifact would be amongst the funnest thing as a wizard and yet noone has done it... I wonder why. A two handed elite knife is of no use to anyone though and ...

Re: Dulling vs undulling weapons and more.

I do agree with Nils on much of this: I think spawn rates for artifacts are too low. The molten bladed dagger is ok, but it was upped in drop rate after much complaining by a very vocal person. But most of the other artifacts I hunt for are never present. I am really tired of perma killing mobs with...
