Remove Wish Adjustment Costs
Note #38424
posted on Ideas
Monday, January 8, 2018 @ 15:12
Do away with wish adjustment costs.  It complicates things
unnecessarily in my opinion.   Refund qps to those that have already
dealt with it.

Just have the wish cost what it costs...why should it matter what order
you bought them in?   I just don't see the point.

"Will this skill allow someone to pup on icefall slopes with worrying
about being attacked in pk rooms?" -- Wire

I think that is for the imms to decide.  That would at first glance seem
overpowered to me.  *shrugs*

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
Note #38233
posted on Ideas

"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.

your argument about promoting botting, but botting is already policed
so just deal with those that do it on an individual basis?

Tuesday, October 11, 2016 @ 16:58
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.

Could the key on the werewolf (large hammer) be made into a key type

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.

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 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?

Boosting EQ for time unbreached is only going to increase the power of the
"unbreachable" clans...which I think is a large reason why everyone was
getting bored in the first place...

New Mentalist Ability: Mind over Matter
Note #35667
posted on Ideas
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!!!

Aardwolf Mixed Drink Contest!!!
Note #8553
posted on Games
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 :)
