Newbie wandering

When I was new there was no lobby per se (IEN days for those who know what that is). I was working my way through N-2 ... picking up interesting looking gear on my city dweller ... kept trying stuff on that "didn't fit" .... I was disgusted by the amount of mountain dweller and underground dweller g...

Re: When a Griffin is no longer cute....

It has been almost 2 monthes ... I trust you have your skill back. Jumping off the edge to kill yourself would have been one of those clever avoid-the-eat maneuvers.

Re: Flash Tutorial Contest!

We are looking for the best Flash Tutorial you can make for the Kingdom of Drakkar! It should be a step by step animated introduction on how to play the game which will assist new players. Prizes to be announced for the winner and runner-up. Trying to "flesh out" a story board for a possible tutori...

Re: Youth Potion

Looks like 2-3 meg is the going rate for anyone interested. The market is actually flooded with supply as several older crits have lockers full of them, but they also have banks full of 50 meg checks too. I actually sold it to someone for 3 megs who gave me 7 and the youth pot back when the transac...

I like that idea ...

though, in a catch 22 scenario, the flagging might make it impossible to make improvements in those cherished killer weapons

Re: Please make Killers unsellable

Years ago, I spent a lot of time in forums complaining on another subject and I was told MANY times by players that we do not need a "coded" solution. Accidental sellings have been a part of Drakkar for a long time. (I know I would like my dread LS back.) The "level" of the gear is immaterial since ...

Re: Beltable Gauntlets

Having been playing around with my MA a bit, I don't understand why so many gaunts are not beltable. I see no reason why you couldn't wear a pair and have a pair hanging off a belt. Seems unreasonable that a 6' greatsword is beltable but not a pair of gauntlets. Can we change them please? -Stormwin...

As I understand it, Brad has been toying with % chance of monster hitting thru all defense and armor blocks. Why not tie the hit thru defense to the number of crits targeting the player vs their number attacks? .. Think of it as the higher the number of your attacks the more enemies you can keep tra...
