Re: Balances, or whatever

That's the core model. You can go over that 100 caid with equivalent negatives to balance it to 100 caid. For example, the Doomseekers branch of the Neidar can't wear most armours.. so have a big negative caid as they can't mitigate damage. Union and elven archers have disadvantages which give them...

Re: Balances, or whatever

if that's the case (100 CAID in total for occ guild)... That's the core model. You can go over that 100 caid with equivalent negatives to balance it to 100 caid.

Re: Balances, or whatever

Throwing out some theoretical combat aid numbers... the combat system was designed so that a player would get 100 combat aid in white damage (normal hits), up to 100 combat aid from their occupational guild through specials (defensive or offensive benefit) and 50 combat aid from their layman guild....

Re: Balances, or whatever

Was combat really so non-functioning before? Or was is too hard to choose the simple solution? I don't get it. Not sure I will. Yup, for few guilds it was. Game is way more playable for kenders, rangers etc. Game promote diversity as well now - currently the go-to team setup is tank/support/dps whi...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Thanks Arc. My experience has been that things are much harder though semi survivable as my magic char. Much less powerful than before. I have no other char. It does seem like it's taking more time to kill as well which is odd given that none of the changes should have affected that I think con-hp ...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Actually it looks pretty neat after most recent changes :) although i think purely offensive options should be looked into atm (things like minotaurs, BMs etc) cause it seems that defensive specials are new king atm (i don't even bother to collect pebbles for sling with Kvator atm becuase even a sli...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

But I know other players feel differently, and feel death has to "string" for PVP to have meaning. So... as with anything, we have as many opinions as we have players... :) Yup, those who bully (or their idling fanbase) want death to have 'meaning' Those who are on receiving end (without any chance...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

I kind of like the general direction in which the game is shifting with this change (xp being faster but way riskier, tanks and utility guilds are back in favor -> all in all this may change xping into something a bit more exciting than the scrip-fest we are all used to*), but atm I have problem wit...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Kvator: Yes, that's the one. 69-31 is pretty one-sided if you ask me. It would be a landslide in a presidential election! The only more one-sided vote I can think of was a vote about letting EQ save permanently for newbies, which was like 90-10 if I remember right. And I am not counting the ones wh...
