Re: Mages on recoded balance

In other words. Yes, Kiara, you're right, but hem... but the mage wins! Scissors cut paper, paper covers rock, rock crashes scissors, and as it has always been - mage evaporizes all. How can't you not get it... There's so much about your ... post (angry drunk ramblings?) that is ripe for the pickin...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

Gorboth: As it is today a warrior will most likely die before any damage can penetrate a Midnightblack platemail and two silvanesti towershields. I think the problem lies with casters defence rather then offence. Maybe there should be a limit on how much AC a caster can have versus a melee characte...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

I think you're right about this Laurel. Its been a observation of mine the whole time as a spellcaster - we don't grind well. If a spellcaster isn't in recovery, you hardly ever see them in killing machines. Sustained exp gaining is never anything spellcasters have been good at in Gen unless you te...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

according to some high tax equals uber abilities so they are bound to be happy regardless. There is some legitimacy to this thought, though. That is the definition of the working theory on guildtax, the more powerful the guild is, the higher tax they pay. That's on paper, though, of course. Eating ...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

What's the point of RPing with someone knowing that he can do whatever he pleases to call you names/piss you off/intimidate you/bully/raid your guild/enter your choice, etc. and you can't do anything about it or if you try you just get nuked for offending the eye :P For me it's similar when an RDA ...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

If the mages were like any other guild I wouldn't have a problem RPing a little now and then. As it is, I just ignore them. Whether you (or anyone) likes it or not, the recodes/balancing are only beginning. It's a long process. The Mages do have a history of being a powerful guild. They have been n...

Re: Ogres

Always liked the idea of stuff placed "beyond" reach really. Some unlock, some achievement, some powers, or some access...always a strive, running after that damn distant carrot, rewarding the very few in the end. Gogo Gorboth. Doesn't even have to be powerful, or an ability at all, just meaningful...

Re: Ogres

Unless, perhaps, Gorboth hid some top secret things away in the billions of skulls :) The mere thought that there's something hidden there excites me. They're really coming back in popularity (though the heart and soul of the guild -- Hrolg and Harley -- are still very active too) and that's awesom...

Re: Mages on recoded balance

Speculation kills. Don't speculate. Well put. Need to keep in mind the situation too regarding the kill. If you give any 'elite caster guild' the element of surprise and are completely unprepared for a fight you yourself provoked, you're probably going to lose. I don't care to get into what exactly...
