Re: For parrying, exclude bow from weaponmaster wish
Note #38415

Saturday, January 6, 2018 @ 22:08
Reply to: Note 38414 posted by Syndom

I don't understand the logic here. When bows are used in melee, they're a melee
 weapon and thus do fall under weaponmaster (and parry). Many people can use
 bows, not just hunters, unlike hammer which is smith-only.

As the helpfile says, bows used at range falls under Archery, which is Hunter
 only and not affected by weaponmaster or parry.

This early room in Winds contains in its description the phrase 
 'The great horde of knowledge' - perhaps this should use 'hoard' instead.

The problem here is that Talsa's helpfile keywords are: Empire of Talsa
Based on Aiighialla, this should be changed to: Talsa 'Empire of Talsa'

Not only will having 'Talsa' be the first keyword fix the search index,
 it will also stop 'help of' from finding Talsa.

The single free attack you get for starting combat with kill probably counts
 as a primary attack, but does not use a round.

Room ID 12504, named The Continent of Mesolar seems to be incorrect.
Its name is generic and its description is almost a copy of room 12505 to the
 east, but based on rooms 12503 and 12505 around it, it should be named
 'Atop Mount Olympus' and have a more unique description.

According to help curse, this cleric-only spell uses int as its primary stat,

You posted your note 18 minutes early, but I'll help you fix it.

Checking gq history, many global quests of all brackets have No winner next
 to them for one reason or another. Why not just open them up to everyone if no
 one within range joins in the initial 5 minutes? Then they would truly be

If you initiate attack on a target that already has revenge on you, that timer
 is not reset (to 15 min). It just stays the same.

This means that you can pk someone you already pk'd just under 15 minutes ago
 and their revenge will expire almost immediately.

IF run reqs and contribution items

posted on Ideas
Sunday, January 29, 2017 @ 11:04
What if the non-limited contribution items in IF (weapons, dmg reducers)
 would count as a form of contribution directly, not just in the player-run

One of the issues with removing run limits entirely is that people will just
 skip the weapons/reducers that help the run and leech points for rank gear.
 What if buying those items would instead reduce the run limits?

Reownable Icefall eq? +++++++

Reply to: Note 26875 posted by Yowza

Apologies if someone did mention this already, but I didn't see so and I did
 read every note in this thread.

No one seems to have pointed out that Icefall is unique because you can farm
 points in IF1 while IF2 is lacking numbers. Therefore, it is completely
 possible (and likely) for lots of IF gear to be sold while no progress is made
 on getting more people active in IF2 - in fact, there's now a disincentive
 for the 16 people who have completed IF2 to help since they would actually
 be hurting their own market power from the lack of supply.

Also, regarding the previous numbers about ~300 inferno runs vs. >500 IF runs, 
 IF1 runs more than twice as often as inferno, which still seems to make IF
 gear more plentiful than Inferno gear.

(Apologies again if the numbers already took repop time into account, because
 I didn't do that math.)

I also approve of this idea at its core:
There should be alternative ways to play besides pupping all day.

I agree the cost ratio should be such that it's less efficient to buy trains
 than to get them via pupping.

Just a quick question for Redwood: when you talk about the ratio, do you mean
 that the ratio should be higher or lower? What is 'more realistic'?

The low tiers are being sucked into OPK by the rewards, which are too large.

If you should only flag OPK because you want PK, why are there PVE bonuses?
It makes no sense - the only purpose for them is to draw in victims that don't
 want to PK. I personally think the bonuses should be removed completely and
 replaced with a ladder/ranking/PVP-only bonuses.
I pointed out that attackers should lose bonuses because it was the natural
 logical extension of the previous argument/excuse for making OPK free kills.

People enjoy killing others, so they should pay for that bonus too.
Disable all PVE bonuses from OPK for 10 minutes when you kill someone.
OPK should show power to PK not PVE bonuses.

Tax was not applied on the trains, only the gained removed:

 1563 - 291 = 1272

However, -50 practices suggests tax was applied on those which is odd.
Perhaps since it's negative anyways both the tax and free were ignored?

based on the defined specs of the bag in help aardeq, this may not
 be a bug (at least for the bag).

The bag is supposed to be equal in level to the character, not the character +
 tier bonus. When you buy it you get the tier bonus to its level, but then it
 autocorrects to L201.

So overall - technically not a bug, but maybe appraise could be fixed to not
 consider the bag as receiving the tier bonus during purchase?

Yes, Fiendish's answer was much more complete than mine.

The only thing I'd add (emphasize really since he did include it too) is that
 the article choice is almost always a choice by the user that adds meaning.
 Even if the object is truly unique, you can use either the or a in order to 
 emphasize or understate that uniqueness.

Perhaps Honda Civic wasn't the best example, but the base point still works.
A Honda Civic has a unique name but is not an unique object. In English unique
 names don't have to require unique words - thus a Shield of Mist.
A shield of mist would be a purely descriptive phrase indicating a shield made
 out of mist (or somehow associated with it at least). A Shield of Mist could
 very well also be a shield of mist, but it's not required.

Trurien is right - ambiguity doesn't matter when there's no typo, and the rule
 on the description naming is upheld. It's ridiculous for existing mob names to
 be changed just because someone suggests it.

Similar examples would be that a 'flying cat' should be changed to a 'flying
 black cat' or that a 'citizen' in Kerofk should be named a 'citizen of Kerofk'
