Re: Should wizards enforce minimal guild rp?

And I'm sorry if I opened another thread about the same thing, I didn't remember I had one from before. Honestly, arcon my peeve is more about the seemingly unreflective repetition which begs for the countering repetition, than a call for everyone to remember everything that's ever been posted here...

Re: Should wizards enforce minimal guild rp?

Wow ... revival of a 16 month old thread, eh? ;-) The math isn't the same, but continuing old threads does bring along all the earlier comments, so we don't have the frustration of just repeating huge swaths of the same things at each other ad nauseum (although part of that may be dizziness from th...

I probably play Genesis to the totally-in-keeping-with-fantasy sounds of the news more than anything, but if I were trying to set a Genesis mood, I'd probably go with Goblin.

Then, eowul also wrote:Hrrrrmmmmmm :)
While I find eowul's first comment to be an interesting take on the situation, his second one is a tad ominous in it's far-reaching implications.

Switching Gears

Nowadays it isn't worth getting because Kernan, Loran, or Baxter drop better swords and are just as easy to kill. I would like to see mobs like the Yeti, Dragons, Calof, Alexander (His eq sucks I know but his name just popped into my head) or any other mob that provides good or really good eq to be...

Why change the calculation for NPC combat exp rewards?

I would much rather have scaling mobs then have quite a few very large mobs that can easily be brought down by Ga/Vets and they take no damage like now. So the exploiting and bot favor mobs are already in game, if you introduce scaling you can at least prevent extreme power leveling. I'm all for ma...

One of these things is not like the others

Perhaps I am missing something, but I don't see how introducing Scaling NPCs or High-Level Grind-Area Instancing would have similar effects to changing combat rewards to favor Encounter-Level Biased Growth . I suppose you could introduce a weird type of growth-only scaling with no experience adjustm...

Why change the calculation for NPC combat exp rewards?

Doesn't Genesis have bigger issues atm then to totally change the reward system for combat ? Arguably. It is also a difficult change to design in a way that would be perceived as fair, represents a significant investment of effort and is mostly an under-the-hood and therefore most likely an under-a...

Re: What is a fair formula to calculate NPC combat exp rewar

What should be done is perhaps a system based on the damage the npc has done to you during combat (not potential damage it can do but actual damage done). The more damage you received, the more of a reward you get in experience. This introduces the same issues as cotillion's time based modifier , e...
