Reincarnation / Re: Reincarnation Thoughts

I can't think of many fights MYTH couldn't do pretty easily. It's probably more to do with willingness to prep and getting people to pay attention long enough.

pretty sure that if someone opened the mystic vault, the fight would destroy myth's 8 best.  you gotta wonder about a king who can slaughter almost anyone who manages to get into his safe room but does not bring his wife with him.

I like to think that she's the one who locked him there.

NEWS / October 11, 2019 -- Help Skills
« Last post by Kholos on October 11, 2019, 11:36:57 AM »
   
   There has been an update to "help skills". This should help to clarify
   how to skill progress especially at the upper levels of the skill. The
   way that skills train was changed many years ago, but if you weren't
   around during the news post you likely missed it or forgot.

   As always, may you all die.

Game Ideas / Re: Remove shoot skill from Mountain and Ocean scouts

The class in general suffers from trying to make tank, melee, and ranged roles share a common core.


Shoot would be fine on more mountains if they could use instincts and not engage. Thrash + shoot might be a bit silly though. I’m all for making Shoot a sky-only skill and having a skill unqiue to mountains and oceans based on their roles. Make riposte ocean-only and for mountains...?

I completely agree with what reed said. I second and third that motion.

It's beyond useless and serves no purpose other than to grind so let's get rid of it for those two paths. Maybe add in a skill to replace, or give the Sky's something to balance it out (though a Sky's only use is to have shoot so ....)

i think part of the problem is that all scout paths have the same skills

My advice to immortals would be to act quick on these suggestions.  Reincarnation even sparked my interest to play a few nights last week.  However, there are some serious flaws in the initial design that should be sorted out immediately to capitalize on peoples' interest. 

Alignment change should be an option at reincarnation, subject to race constraints.  My two main characters from this wipe were evil and goodie.  That immediately put a halt to my reincarnation hopes.  And no way in bapting hell i'm going through the align change process - not happening.

Revamp how XP in groups are calculated.  I'd go as far as saying that XP should be the exact same for a person solo'ing a mob all the way to a 6 man.  Yes, a 6 man gets the same XP as a solo'er.  Arctic is dead af, and if someone knew they would XP 100x faster if they called two buddies and get them on the mud, then that is a great thing for the mud.  Anything that gives incentive for people to not form groups should be revamped.

Remove the lvl 30 XP penalty.  Makes zero sense and is completely useless.

Remove the XP penalty as you progress through reincarnation.  It takes enough grind as is.  What's the point, more grind?

Reduce cost of ranks.  Steelskin 25k, other ranks 1-5k, legend ranks 10k, legendary 25k.  Even that is going to put a big strain on purchasing ranks after each reincarnation.  Why would you want people not purchasing ranks throughout the reincarnation process which is likely to last up to a couple of months?  You rank and reincarnate to have more rank points to spend, but then it doesn't make sense to actually purchase the ranks?  That seems dumb.  Not to mention, once someone fully reincarnates, they probably will lose interest in the game.  So in the end, they could have gone from lvl 1 to fully reincarnated with minimal ranks purchased.

I honestly see zero problem with someone like Kadaj being able to break Arctic over their knee.  How many decades have people like them played?  How many tens of thousands of hours have they spent on the game?  Rebalancing the MUD around those players is like a game developer rebalancing their game because speedrunners can blow through their 40 hour RPG in 2 hours.


that is a very good point

So when a paladin hits rank 44, reincarnates 6 times, and buys damage shield + steelskin + legend lay, rally, ri... the rank costs should NOT inflate to prevent this?

No I'm perfectly ok with someone who spent dozens (likely hundreds) of hours getting to that point.  Let them have that extra power.  It alone won't let them clear Cyan or Mithas or whatever else but it'll help and that's the point otherwise why spend the time getting there?

If everything's going to be boosted to offset reincarnation then it's just adding a new layer of grind and I'd rather see Reincarnation turned in to a one and done if that's the case.
