Re: Breaking Down the COB Item Barrier

As a very infrequent tiny player and his wife, we would love this. I understood at the time the need for it but now it would solve a huge issue with progression from 18 to NL levels for smaller players/groups. Its not like we're anti-social its just we play maybe 3-4 times a month so we tend to prog...

Replying to Topic 'Levelling from 17 to 18'

Got my MA over the hump with a couple EC bracers, went to caves NW of Aleria town and killed the zoos there. Got about 1-3 meg per run, took a couple days to get to 18 from around 17.5. Bracers cost me 5m each to get enchanted the first time, 1 or 2 to refill them if you can manage to not disintigra...

I can't take it any more

I go through regular cycles of "Ok, I WANT to enjoy the game again" so I load up the game again every few months.. After 3 or 4 weeks the grind kills all enjoyment and I stop again. Ever since the changes to punish soloers* was put in I can barely make it through a month before I get bored to death....

Replying to Topic 'Picking up too many gems'

If a party kills a lair crit and its been looted, you just robbed them of their spoils That's a bit much I think. All the lairs that I can think of the lair occupant holds the item everyone is after until it's death (or its a corpse to skin). The gems and trash on the 3x3 lair hexes are never the r...

Replying to Topic 'Powerword Death'

In both Drak and Kesmai I always wished for some way to flag another player's character "Will not turn red to me no matter what". It doesn't have to make me immune or anything, just a "I know he's gonna hit me with his fireball but I don't care so no need to set off the self defense flag" thing. Lik...

Not that my knowledge of things thiefy is all that much, biggest one I had was 18/15/11 and even then I found it much faster to backstab something and take what I wanted off the body than trying to steal anything, but I think its safe to say that 13/11 anything will be chewed up and spit out by KM4 :)

Replying to Topic 'new nork gaunts'

My limited opinion from a 17/15 MA POV: Alerians are very nice damagewise, but blow because they get blocked so much. Have found 4, none had any adds but I have heard they can have em, so maybe finding a +4 pair would make up for that. Were definatly a step up from RD's anyway. Katsumo's actually hi...

Replying to Topic 'Time to stop over gearing new players'

Nononono, the way things generally go is: <time passes> Player B comes to Game X. Player B does something. Player A (slightly older player) tells player B "You didn't do it the way I did, you are not playing the game correctly" Player A recounts stories of "how it was for them" without taking into a...

Items only poof (Well, actually they explode) if you try to enchant something to a higher + than your skill allows, like casting enchant on a +3 item at skill 12. Unless I'm horribly misinformed, any enchantable item may be enchanted as high as your skill allows, unless you are trying to enchant Cob...

Replying to Topic 'MA gauntlet enchanter'

I think the difficulties MA's have at low to mid levels is a balancing act, from everything I have seen and heard high skill & level MA's are the most powerful class in the game. So to prevent them from being the only class played they are one of the most difficult classes to get to those levels. I'...

Because Drakkar (and EQ and AC and Camelot etc etc etc) is not a roleplaying game, its a fantasy combat simulator. I don't mean it as an insult, it's just the nature of them. Talking in an accent or talking without using references to "Real life" are cool and can be a part of roleplaying, but withou...
