So for some time yet, we won't be seeing the final result?
Since it takes time to fix it all..?

Thank you for the explanation.
The recode of the magic system was started a while back.. so i don't expect that to take long - depending on testing.

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. 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. Un...

Re: Balances, or whatever

It does sound like you probably won't. Thank you for your contribution to my note. I am sure everyone will find it very enlightening. To be fair, you probably won't. Not because you are incapable of understanding, but because for you to understand we'd have to give you too much game mechanic detail...

Re: Patch Sunday.

"Just a matter of how effective they are". Yes, essentially. But it is also essentially a recode of the magic system. Now I am not 100% across everything Carnak is rolling out this weekend, but overall the changes to the magic system are going to involve: * changes in how spell success is calculated...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Layman casters are in a good spot in my opinion. Especially guilds like Warlocks and Elemental Worshippers as they provide you with good defensive tools. Minstrels should also be fine, they do lack the defensive options of aforementioned guilds but they are also extremely low in maintenance (no nee...

Re: Harder hits

Yeah what Targun said. Just look at damage absorb vs evade tanking specials. evade tanking is vastly superior in every way, not counting Neidar cause they are just wrong in every sense of the word. Now that there is no longer a dwarven AoB who also is guild master of the Neidar, maybe that will cha...

Re: smiths

Re: emoting - Reasonably sophisticated free emoting was part of an 'actors club' for a while before being moved to another club (the 'Wise Ones'), giving players invested in the game for a certain number of game days such emoting permissions.
