epics
Note #40936
posted on Ideas
Tuesday, November 27, 2018 @ 22:20
Greetings Aardwolf,

The question has been raised about the current state of epics, and what, if 
anything, should be done to tweak or modify them to enhance the game
experience.

Potential ideas that the Imm team have had are:

- reduce some or all epic repop timers to 30 hours, somewhat like Winds of 
Fate does with it's cooldown timer. The reasoning for this is that it will 
allow more epics to be run at various times
- potentially enact personal timers for Genie, Inferno, and Icefall so
that the repop can be set to 90 minutes (or some other value)
- reduce the number of players required to complete an epic to somewhere 
between 12 - 15 players for all epics.
- separate if1 and if2 points.

We believe that even though there is a potential (at a 30 hour repop) for
292 total runs a year (if run consecutively), that with each epic aligned
for a repop time, we still assume that other epics are run, probably no
more per weeknight, that more than likely only 25% of those opportunities
would be taken, which amounts to 73 runs a year. Even with that, I expect
the number may be high for some epics.

Please reply with any ideas or thoughts you have.

Thank you,
Domain

Several areas will soon be getting a bit more equipment placed around
to match the theme of the area, providing a more detailed experience
in the area. So if you see an area that didn't used to have
equipment that now does, don't be surprised.

It was found that there were several weapons with higher than
average damage. These weapons have been fixed to be within the
allowable parameters. Some of the areas were the weapons were
adjusted included Hades, Werewoods, and Cataclsym. If you
know of any other areas where the weapons have higher than
allowed average damage, please let us know.

it can also be unisex now. As such I'll leave it

The following spells have been added to the illegalspells list.
Extinguish          
Cyclone                    
Shock aura              
Earth shroud

Vengeance              
Starburst              
Necrocide               
Spear of odin 

If your clan had staves with one of these spells they have been
changed to blind. You may contact me within the next week with a
new spell that you would like to replace blind with at no cost.
After that point, the cost will be as indicated in the helpfiles.

Contact me on the personal board with the new spell that you would
like.
Icefall Epic2

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 @ 11:08
Yowza is working on a scaleable version of Icefall Epic 2 (IF2). In
the meantime, several of the mobs have been adjusted in the first
sections of the epic (hp and damage). Further tweaks may be necessary
in the future, or may differ once Yowza's work is complete.

It will still be a difficult epic, and we will monitor the future runs.

Icefall 3
Note #1726
posted on Mudinfo
Saturday, April 1, 2017 @ 16:35
Yowza has created a new hidden goal for Icefall. Icefall 3 is now
live and ready for you. It is more deadly and difficult than anything
you've completed before, and the rewards are greater as well but
random. See the market for an example, and that is just the tip
of the iceberg!

Yowza prematurely posted some hints on the public boards so
use that information wisely.

Good luck....you will need it.

A tailor has opened shop in A Genie's Last Wish. He works exclusively
on carpets, and is willing to upgrade your carpet for you! To use his
service, simply wear your high runs carpet, and give him your extra
carpet. He doesn't work with low quality carpets, and the one you
keep must be over 5 runs. Each carpet is only worth one run,
no matter how many runs are on the carpet you turn in.

Use this tailor with CAUTION, and make sure you wear the higher run
carpet.

I've looked over the helpfile and it is implied that it uses moves
and mana:


Thieves must be cautious in the creation and application of this poultice,
thus leaving them slightly physically and mentally drained after using it.


In my opinion, this indicates that poultice will drain you.

I'm open to updating the helpfile, but truly believe it is already covered.
Please let me know if you're suggesting something else.

I readded the minimum level because individual woobles are different.
While some may think you're capable of rescuing them, others think you're
too small. There is no bug.

To reply to your thought that you should only be able to open a goal
if you meet the minimum level, I disagree. The minimum level can take
effect at any point during the goal and prevent you from completing
it.

Some of you may have noticed a change in some of your rank equipment.

(_)==Slick's Cuffs==(_)             heroonly           
Scars from the Heat                 heroonly
A Burakumin Cloak                   heroonly       
Bracers of Platinum Chain           heroonly
Boots of the Efreeti                heroonly
A Reflection of the Inferno         heroonly
a Demon's Shriveled Eye             heroonly
Poison-tipped Claws                 heroonly 

Two items have not been adjusted yet:
Classy Top Hat
Shadow's Silhouette
The reason these two have not been adjusted yet is because while the
level would change, the hero only flag would not be added on existing
equipment so players could use it pre superhero. These will require
special adjustments.

Thanks.
