Reply to: Note 38238 posted by Redryn Redryn, No. It is not meant to be a pk skill. To answer your second question, I'm not sure how you would counter it as a hostile maneuver. It is meant to be an essentially defensive maneuver. I guess the powers that be/imms could tweak that to their liking. And to address your last point...I agree. If they can't get into the room, that prevents the PK situation at least temporarily. I would like to add that I do not feel this should not stack with Flank. Thank you very much for the reply, Redryn.

New skill -- Barricade
Sunday, December 3, 2017 @ 13:46
"Barricade" -- Lvl 70 Block one exit so others can't get in. Works on both mobs and players. This is different than Flank, because Barricade
prevents them from getting IN, not getting out. For instance, if you barricade s nobody from the south will be able to go north to where you, and your group members or whoever is at. They could still get in through other exits, from the west, east, north, up, down. Not sure about cexits, but I assume it would take too much work to be able to barricade a custom exit. Soldier subclass only. Lasts about 2 minutes at lvl 70 with average stats/low tier. Lasts maybe as much as 7 to 10 minutes at lvl 201 with good stats/tiers. Cannot purchase instinct in this skill. Has a big cooldown timer. Maybe one hour at lvl 70, 45 to 30 minutes at lvl 201. Costs moves, maybe 400 to 500 at lvl 70, then 300 at lvl 201. Primarily affected by Con, Str Also influenced by Luck. I think this would be a nice boost to Soldier, especially in PK and grouping. May be unusuable on epics such as Icefall, Titan, Genie, OC, and perhaps the new one. Other than that, should be usable in all terrains, indoor, outdoor, in any non-epic area. Perhaps some limitations on doing it in newb or goal areas. Thanks, Flak

Forgive me if this is already a thing...but how about a command "market mine" that shows all the items you're currently selling, and the highest bid. Thanks.

Give Rangers Herbal Remedy. It makes sense with their theme.

Campaign reward based on amount of time to complete +
Saturday, October 15, 2016 @ 15:19
Reply to: Note 36074 posted by DjVoltron Definitely not suggesting a bonus for taking longer...I can kind of see your argument about promoting botting, but botting is already policed so just deal with those that do it on an individual basis? Thanks
restore hp/mana/moves on lvlup

Change gaia's focus so that it is more like power projection and also enhances the damage done by gaia's revenge. This would make the class more scalable at high levels where they are simply outdamaged.
Flying Citadel Key
Friday, September 23, 2016 @ 17:44
Could the key on the werewolf (large hammer) be made into a key type instead of an item? As it stands you need autoloot on to get it, autokeyloot will not grab it. Thanks
Sunday, September 11, 2016 @ 23:14
I feel like titles that try to goad people into PK should be outlawed... For instance, people that put (WANTED) or (HARDCORE) in their title...I realize you can pkoff and whatnot, but I feel like these titles are in poor taste, and should be illegal.
Re: Let's Bring Back Raiding +++++
Sunday, September 11, 2016 @ 21:43
Reply to: Note 35935 posted by Wire Wire, that's a very good point and well-stated. I should say that I am not so much worried about not getting the extra + to EQ or even about the stronger clans having it (though that is a consideration)...I just feel like it won't change anything. Crimson, Light, Ba'al will still be unraidable, and everyone will still go after Amazon and the other small clans...it just seems like it rewards the strong needlessly while doing little to change the dynamics. While it may make raided EQ more lucrative, like you said, people can still do epics, and everyone is... Are there really any people that are planning to avoid epics altogether?

New Mentalist Ability: Mind over Matter
Sunday, July 3, 2016 @ 20:43
Using his/her mindpower, the experienced Mentalist is able to ease the burdens of physical encumberance. Effect: Reduces weight of all items in inventory, or reduces a % of total weight (whichever is easier). Note: When spell wears off and weight goes back to normal, you will not drop anything if you are overweight. Cons: Does nothing to solve item capacity problems (we already have pockets wish for this anyway).

This is a trivia contest sponsored by the great folks at (+)Cabal(+) with special thanks to Rumour! I will be asking a series of 12 questions on the subject of rare and controversial artifacts. Of course, no one knows the true story of how these historical treasures came to be, and if we did, we wouldn't tell anyone! gametalk The questions will be asked on the gametalk channel, and the first person with the correct answer will score a point. Spelling will not count, as long as it's close. The top 3 winners will receive an (Aarchaeology) piece! The higher the score, the better the piece! There may also be a dice-roll involved... So come and join us Saturday, May 21st at 12 noon EST!!! (+)Cabal(+)

Aardwolf Mixed Drink Contest!!!
Wednesday, March 9, 2016 @ 18:23
Aspiring part-time bartenders and full-time alcoholics unite! (+)Cabal(+) is hosting a mud-wide contest to see who can come up with the best mixed drink! To make a "mixed drink", find 2 different potions and then tell us what they would look like if they were combined together! For instance: -=Shogun's Viagra Shot=- + :::Angel'sBreath::: = Viagra Breath **Please do not combine 2 different kinds of real life alcohol, for instance, Vodka and Rum...just boring imo. Using 1 alcohol in your combo is perfectly fine. Manor potions are fine, but do not create new potions strictly for the purposes of this contest. The kicker here is you must actually bring me the 2 potions you used to prove they exist. As you bring me the potions, send me a tell or a note on personal telling me the name of the combo you created. I will be sitting 2s of recall in Phoenix Square. **One entry per person!!!! -- Contest will be held Saturday, March 12th at 1PM EST -- Whichever submissions I like the best will win! I will be considering mostly humor, creativity, and cool factor. First prize: 3 TP Second prize: 2 TP Third prize: 1 TP I hope this is something that people of all levels and affiliations can enjoy, and look forward to some great drinks! Someone might have to carry me back to the clan hall after this is all over :) (+)Cabal(+) 2016 (+)Cabal(+) 2016 (+)Cabal(+) 2016 (+)Cabal(+)

Enhanced retreat for Soldier
Monday, December 21, 2015 @ 09:10
Just an idea to make Soldier more playable...this would affect retreat from both mobs AND players...don't think it would imbalance anything tbh. Enhanced retreat: ---------------- Discretion being the better part of valor, the experienced Soldier draws on his/her survival instincts to gain a 5% benefit when retreating from combat. Thanks

Reply to: Note 988 posted by Tsunwu Thanks a lot for the input, and I think the Youtube videos are a good idea. I also definitely applaud the fact that you volunteered to make one. I wanted to add that in addition perhaps it would be good to include some of the more frequently used "ease-of-life" websites such as rooms.gaardian.com aardfaqs.com and perhaps the AardWiki (not sure if this is already mentioned). Sorry for the over-wordiness of this post, it's very late :) Thanks
Allow goal messages for Clanonly

Quick CP Bonus
Friday, December 11, 2015 @ 20:32
How about a bonus 2 qps for completing a cp in under 5 minutes and an extra 1 qp for completing a cp in under 10? I think it's cool to reward quickness, and this would encourage mud exploration and more cping, plus provide another alternative for those who still might not get a lot of gquest opportunities even after the changes. The only negatives I see are "But there's already enough rewards!" and the fact that it's much easier to do a cp quickly at lvl 1 then say lvl 201. Thanks
