General Discussion / Re: Losing Lily..Why does arctic hate fun?

An easy...ish? fix for what Kam said would perhaps show an aura. (black aura) (holy aura) and let DK's auto have that aura? What do I know, I just play mages and thieves anyway.

Development News / Forums Update

We've done some pruning of the forums and removed quite a lot of extraneous categories that were underutilized/unnecessary.

Some posts were lost in the melee.


So it goes.

Sounds good, I get the sense it's some sort of bug.  But I feel I've literally tried everything and still can't erase the damn thing.  Happy to harass you about it if I can catch you while you're on!

Kam I appreciate the reply. I hope you folks get a chance to take a look.

Thankfully your dragon doesn't lose ranks. My characters problems were solved by running lily quest for a second time. Thanks to Tour who chatted with me about it.

I think spell loss and dropping inspire a level or two would be more appropriate. Painful but not soul-crushing. :D

I'm not so worried about the holy stuff. It was a high priestess of Takhisis, pretty obvious it was holy :D :D :D ..dont play from work on a web browser with no triggers boys and girls..:D

General Discussion / claim system

sure its been suggested before, but why not attach a claimed option similiar to how the new ring works.  Have it be limited too only non-limit gear and only if the death wasn't a result of pk.  Reduced the stress of death for the more casual player but still give an importance on decay/dt reload stuff for the elite gear as well as pk still being a part of the gear finding that some players enjoy.

The penalties for losing status are hard coded as far as I am aware. I am looking into having someone take a nerf bat down that road as I agree that the effects are pretty devastating and need to be relaxed in a lot of ways.
The side issue here is that there are sometimes mobs in the game that are holy and not terribly obvious that they would be so. I don't know what you lost status on but I think it's worth taking a look through holy mobs to see what's out there and maybe if those could be modified a bit.
Removing faith and status loss altogether isn't really something I'm into. Faith in particular because I'm actually a fan of the system. Early in its implementation there were discussions about expanding its field throughout all classes that was eventually decided against, but a good deal of interest remained in making it a part of the DK class which I was behind and hope we can eventually implement one day.

As far as skill training is concerned we made the first major changes to skill training that have been done in a very long time, particularly regarding the way that it works. As with most things in Arctic throughout its history, these are a work that is ever in progress. More recently we've worked on easing up the cool down timers and getting some skills to train faster/easier or have just no cool down at all. These changes, I believe, are already done and just waiting to be merged into the game.
As I've mentioned before it's very difficult for us to get code changes implemented because it is not only the players who have grown up and acquired themselves several real-life responsibilities, much to their own chagrin in many cases.
Banish and field medic are horrible, I can readily agree. Especially banish because I've been that poor sap of a druid helping people train it more than few times over the years.

Shannow for any character specific issues you're having feel free to speak to me online when you see me or shoot me a PM here on the forums with some more info so that I can take a look for you.

I missed your PM about this until today. I am looking into it, but don't have much time at present unfortunately.
If you catch me online shoot me a tell and we can try to figure it out.

I don't think he really plays much either.

In any case, the current status of the PK damage setting is not intended to be a longstanding one, future endeavors of progress are pretty limited but there's stuff being worked on in an effort to find the best of both worlds.

The goals and ideas behind it are a thing that I've discussed with a number of people already and am continuing to in an effort to make the best choices for the future.
But don't worry, I still don't care about you clowns. :)

Faith is part of the game and i don't believe it should be removed.  But i think DKs that lose faith shouldn't lose any spells, and could have inspire reduced by maybe 2 or so skill levels.  Going to bad/awful is really demoralizing for a casual player.
