Re: Progression/Challenge server

I was about to say I'd pay if we limited it to one account per player, but then I got to thinking about autohit again. Even with HP quests, I don't see anything other than barbarians being great in Nork. Other classes need real survivability, or at least need to be able to bring something to the tab...

Fast Aleria

Good idea. Better idea with the x2 experience gain. I'm writing this from a perspective of a newer player who isn't leeching his way through the game. Here is my reasoning: Good spread of difficulty vs. rewards. There are areas huntable by level 10 characters and areas huntable by level 20 character...

Remove trash loot in Nork/Aleria/Cob

I submit the idea that trash loot should be removed, with only gold, gems, and "usable" loot remaining. Get rid of all the iron longswords and leather armors and leather boots. It's all just ground clutter, and probably a strain on the servers. Keep all the magical items, stat pots, quest drops, etc...

Also implement a feature that allows me to steal Veega's gear from anywhere, whenever I want. Maybe a new discipline.

Re: Combined Ideas thread to bring life back to Drakkar

I think the biggest thing would be to let accounts revert to from paid to free and still be able to play as a free account in Nork. All the way to 50/30. Don't take anything away from reverted accounts. Don't cut HP, don't lock gear, don't nerf experience or skill gains. Let people play in the deser...

Re: free account growth

In Challenge Nork, my best skill came from Nork townies. I think I was getting .01% skill per townie, or .02% when paid up. Of course, making enough money to pay the trainer involved several hours of killing all the dragons in ML then several hours of selling all the gems while alt accounts held the...

Re: Increasing activity

I think the real concern is what can be done to attract/keep new players. Attracting? No idea. Keeping? Still, no idea. The game has a very steep learning curve, especially by today's standards. I am a living tutorial and I can't even get my friends to play. I've pitched a few ideas over the years t...

Re: Some Changes

When are these changes going into effect? Tirith is on point with all of his suggestions.

There is no longer a need for two alt...

Aleria EXP

Aleria used to give x4 experience. Such that killing a standard ogre or troll would yield 48k experience. It seems monsters have currently reset to original experience values. Was this reversion intended?

ELANCE AoE not working!

#form ENERGYLANCE is not hitting all targets on the screen. It just takes 70 EP and does nothing.

It used to be that an untargeted energylance would hit everything visible with a very weak energylance attack, dependent on the number of enemies it was divided between.

Re: Mentalist damage is unbalanced... in a bad way.

Concerning Terrel's comments: It is true that a mentalist can burn in regular Cobrahn just fine. You can stand in the same zoo for however long you need and not worry about being auto-killed at any given moment. 100m experience in 2-3 hours is perfectly plausible. However, the issue is that other cl...

Re: Mentalist damage is unbalanced... in a bad way.

It's the key bashing part is salt in the wound. Overall, it's that mentalists are a case of maximum effort for minimal reward. Mentalist psionic damage only becomes more and more obsolete as you progress through Cobrahn while any melee class is getting better and better weapons. The gap between ment...

Since I was the squeaky wheel here let me comment. Fact 1: There are no groups like there used to be. The player base is basically separated into the 78-85 guys and the newbies. While it's not unheard of to get a group outside of Nameless, it is exceedingly difficult and levels are not usually close...

Sorry for the delay in the update. Here are some re-imagined bows. I split longbows apart from crossbows and shortbows.
