Re: Assassin's Guild Tweaks

I personally believe that if an assassin's contract is paid off: Particularly at THREE TIMES THE RATE ... the contractor should not get back half of the gold. The problem is -- that this doesn't turn into a 3 to 1 advantage. This turns into a 6 to 1 advantage because of this. That math is INCREDIBLY...

Current Events: Saslae Xun'viir updates.

Not a rant, or complaining; 1) My PC of 14 years (an early-gen i7) died ; had to run on a cheap laptop for a while that took a long time to even load the hub and get it replaced on a low budget. Trying to recover information from the dead computer's hard drives is putting financial strain on me. Hap...

Re: The Underdark - My Feedback on a few things

1) "You are NOT allowed to kill surfacers in the hub." 2) "You are ONLY allowed to kill surfacers in the hub." Both result in unnecessary troubles for Andunorians. 1) Surfacers stand there and blow raspberries at you. A prominent Underdark player kills them and gets run out of the hub, damaging fact...

Re: Shop bidding system

As a player who plays CONTINUOUSLY I like the bidding system for a few reasons: 1) It gets players who can't be on during prime-time the ability to participate. I have never been a fan of how Andunor Hub shops trade hands during the hours of the old shop owners, meaning players in odd hours cannot g...

Re: The Underdark - My Feedback on a few things

I have played pretty exclusively in the Underdark. I have a couple surface characters I enjoy that I tend to log into secretly; but the reality is, most of my Arelith experience is Underdark, on a drow. My thought process when I walk around the hub: - Are they sneaking around the hub? - Are they an ...

Re: To the merchants with reasonable prices

Hahaha! It's true.. lol. If you sell it at your usual price, without the tax -- that's often enough to absolutely crush their prices, and it's what I love about the RP shops in the Andunor trade hub, etc.

I know I've been offering a lot of feedback on weird Arelith quirks lately, but one I can't really wrap my head around is.. the way Rest Zones are designed.

Literally a one-round melee. There's only one class that can realistically burst 560 damage in one round: DW-STRanger-WM. It was pretty boss, ngl. Haha. That man walked in KNOWING he was large and in charge.

Re: God-Save Exploit, or No?

Because the strategy, as it's been explained is ... typically, when people are enchanting in this way, they prepare a bunch of items up past the god-save, then try to do 15 - 20 of them at once on hard 5%. So they industrialize the god-saves. Carry a Basin. Carry an Altar. Teleport to a remote porta...

There's other exploitative behaviors ruled against rather than strictly mechanically enforced. I'm not sure that 'if it isn't disabled it's totally fine' is a metric I'm comfortable with here.

Re: Killbashing is toxic vindictive behavior - A Solution

I don't have strong opinions on kill-bashing itself, but I find the fact that bashed remains (and heads) persist after the character has respawned to be rather immersion breaking. Especially in those cases where you can see the character very much alive, next to not one, but two bashed remains of s...

Re: Killbashing is toxic vindictive behavior - A Solution

Resurrection works on "bashed" corpses. This is actually more lore accurate to sourcebook materials than current Resurrection (double win) Ear or Finger or "whatever" trinket when you take a purse off a corpse killed by a player the first time it is picked up. This will help reduce the need to kill...

Or just make it so you have to report into the guild before dieing to collect the money.
That is actually an incredibly cool idea.
I thought they sent the gold directly into the assassin's backpack, to encourage people to kill him, no?
