It might have the opposite effect. It is so hard to level different char that you might as well bot up and level all of them at single go.

The pre-wipe is over,  NOBODY wants to spend days upon days upon DAYS to get to level 30 just to be randomed and hunted and then that char is worthless too.

I mean I am just sayin,  if I could level like the old days I would still be playin some char..  but as it is now it just requires to much of my time.

Back in the old days you and some others could have quit and decide you are gonna roll a new clan or pk squad "part of the game"  buy a 12pack of beer and go nutz by the end of the night you are zoning and pkilling..  now that's fun.  this shit you have us doing now is just ridiculous.

P.S.  I liked the xp tables at the beginning of wipe..  but I think after a week of the wipe it needs to go back to normal.

If the xp table is here to stay, please reduce the minimum skill requirement for class skills to like lvl 20 instead of 25.

That way, classes like robes will have a pet to help out, and ease the grind at lvl 20+.

  I was a new returning guy last wipe.  Hooked up with a clan after leveling to 26 or so and enjoyed the wipe.  Died a lot, but it never really hurt too much.  I was a casual player.  A few hours here, a few hours there.  It took me the whole wipe to get one character almost to legend.  I didn't legend due to my own stupidity.  I rolled one guy to level 10 this wipe and quickly realized that the new tables would make it impossible to play as a casual so I didn't.
  I'll play next wipe if it looks possible for a casual, if not I won't.  I'm not whining as it doesn't matter to me one way or the other.  I expect I'm a lot like other returning 30 somethings though.  If the game is work, it's not a game.

Somewhere around level 20 with no one to group with, I figured I would have to quit or bot. I decided to quit because botting sounds just as boring as soloing. Maybe real life getting busy had something to do with quitting, but real life has always been busy and I made time to MUD simply because it was a whole lot of fun.

Ever now and again a topic like this comes up.

nasredin points out the richness of the game and the rewarding mid level content available. Thing is i have tried time and again to find this rewarding mid level content and i just never can seem to. I would say i am a fairly experienced player and i have even solved a few zones by myself and in my clan setting. But i don't seem to ever find these mid level rewarding quests and content.

Maybe i just need to be exposed to the process of finding it.  I say this because i do love this game and i'd love to spend time playing it but can't. Exploring lower level content in my spare time could be a good way to still be part of arctic.

 I was about to play this wipe and rolled maybe 1 character and leveled to 10 but its hard to find a game into everyday life currently.

revert xp tables, reduce nightmare stun chance further, reduce punch/bash damage, nerf animate, pwipe.

Nightmare doesn't need to be nerfed, it never stuns people except the rare exception when 4 BIAs got stunned.  Also, animate needs to be buffed, not nerfed :)

Many ways to make nightmare less potent:

1. Stuff like Mind blank, zombify should counter nightmare.
2. Non combat "wake" should counter nightmared ppl.
3. Brilliance should lower nightmare chance.
4. Darkness should increase nightmare chance.
5. True seeing should counter nightmare.
6. Less potent during the "day" time. More potent during "night" time.
7. Cloak of bravery should +save against nightmare
8. Kender immune nightmare

Many ideas already thrown out on animate, but this has been such an old spell probably it will never get changed ever.
Make "turn" work on animate corpse to have the following effect
1. they flee away even when master is in room
2. lower their hr by -20 or something when failed save
3. they stop following the master when failed save
4. Their hp goes to 10% of their max when failed save

Punch and bash, I like it but thats because I'm biased.
