Reply to: Note 39653 posted by Tymme

Yes, I know it's there.  I was thinking at first that since it's easy to
waste weeks of effort by doing it that it should not be in the trail of
breadcrumbs, but should be part of that warning.

Now I think I will propose the idea that rebuilding should NOT turn
instinct-usable trains into useless stats-only trains.  I can certainly
understand why the trains coming from the rebuild are non-instinct trains,
but why should that convert my trains onhand?  It makes no sense to me.

classchange warning message
Note #39650
posted on Ideas
Sunday, April 29, 2018 @ 17:48
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING: This command will change your primary class permanently and cannot be
before you confirm. Class change will also do the equivalent of a zero cost
rebuild so that you can train and practice in your new class, which means your
skills will be at 1% with practices refunded.  Please see
'HELP REBUILD' for more on this.
Type 'classchange   ' again to confirm this command.
Type 'classchange cancel' to undo classchange status.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's the message that comes up.  And yes, it sort of gives everything you
need to know.  But what is easy to forget is that any trains you have on hand
will become non-instinct trains.  If you are sitting on 15,000 trains when
you do a classchange it is un-freaking-believably annoying.

If you feel like replying and saying "you should have known better", please
don't bother.

Market redux
Note #39455
posted on Ideas
Sunday, March 25, 2018 @ 10:17
I was looking for notes from a few months ago about selling owned items
on market, but couldn't find them.  So I apologize if this has been hashed
to death.  But it seems like the most straightforward way to list owned
items would be for the seller to pay the reown fee, something like:

Adding   to the market for 2 days will cost:

       100,000 gold
       6 Trivia Points

Also, I think it would be a nice feature to have the ability to set a
reserve price.  So if I set my reserve at 5,000,000 gold, that's where
the bidding starts.  And if there are no bids, it reverts to me.

Reply to: Note 39229 posted by Redryn

Aard eq doesn't have the noreown flag.  Must be handled separately.

Pins shouldn't be reownable in any situation, forgot about those.  They also
have the noshare flag, which could be the new indicator of private, truly
non-reownable equipment.

Might still be other items I haven't thought of.

noreown flag
Note #39221
posted on Ideas
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 @ 17:50
I'm wondering, with the change a while back to allow Epic gear to be
reowned, is there a reason why this flag is still useful?  The only
pieces I can think of offhand are legacy epic pieces and some goal
rewards item (whose utility is diminishing anyway with enhanced gameload
items).

I'd suggest either
1) Removing noreown entirely or
2) Allowing noreown to be removed with setflags, so it'd be a 2 TP toggle
plus 6 TP reown to transfer an item.

I suppose something like the Heart Mirror would be problematic, as a
farmable owned item.  Maybe there are others, too, that I can't think of.

The problem with the minbid, IMO, is that if no one bids you lose the item.
Maybe have an additional parameter to optionally keep the item if the min bid
isn't met?  I've had people send irate tells to me on the infrequent times
I've put something on auction and then bid my item up to the minimum amount
I'm okay selling it at.

Also, I'd love to have items on auction and rauc have gmcp information for

Re: Add starburst to EQ-Illegalspells +++++
Note #38378
posted on Ideas
Thursday, January 4, 2018 @ 15:41
Reply to: Note 38372 posted by Zhalut

I would be in favor of a staff nerf, even though I use staves myself.

My problem is that the fastest pupping for a number of different class/
subclass combinations involve finding large rooms and using staves.  Priest
(obviously), but also warriors and paladins, and (oddly) navigators.

I'm a navigator who has an unusually high amount of mastery, which I've
split between light and mental.  With timeshifting, I'm brandishing more
frequently than other classes, so I'm often doing 20k or more damage per
round in Icefall, which is a lot more than I do with the desolation spell.

I would prefer more differences in preferred pupping areas and styles 
between classes.  I feel that the starburst staves create more of a
convergence (everyone using their action to do the same thing).  I also
feel that it discourages grouping (the leader does a bunch more damage
than those following).  And flavor-wise I prefer spellcasting over
brandishing.

I'd be in favor of improving rangers and (to a lesser extent) thieves,
too.  But I still don't love staves.

Re: Weapon damtype mastery ++++++

Friday, September 29, 2017 @ 10:07
Reply to: Note 37977 posted by Khannon

While I love the classchange cooldown change, classchange was never the issue
(for me at least) when considering trying out a new class.  Mastery and
instinct and weapon damtype changes were always much more expensive.

I like to be able to try things out and to do so without losing what I gained
over the last week or so.  It might not sound like a lot, but it is
very significant to me, especially if I'm not sure if I'm going to like the
new pclass.

I suggest:
1. Every classchange and tier/redo comes with a free mastery rebuild,
though only if you don't already have one.  You can't accumulate free
rebuilds in this way.

2. Pclass instinct skills/spells can be rebuilt for free when you are a
different pclass.  Rebuilding desolation into Spear of Odin or whatever
gets expensive, too.

Weapon damtypes are a little trickier.  The idea of setting a weap to follow
mastery isn't bad.  For me, a new pclass means 13 weaps (26 TPs), which
really does add up, and I only have one 0-weighted weap every 20-30 levels.

I've thought for a long time that it would be beneficial to the mud to
allow the long time players to be able to try new things more cheaply.

I'm pretty much continually buying chaos portals of most types.  I buy at:

Blank chaos portal: 16m
Blank chaos portal w/silvery tint: 16.5m
Blank shiny platinum: 225m
Live junk chaos portal: 2.5m
Live useful chaos portal: Generally, 2 TP (or 10m) that are marginally
useful for me, can be much more if they are golden and/or lead to very
useful locations. In addition, I pay the 2 TP reown fee for these.

Send me a tell or note if you're looking to sell.  You'll almost certainly
make more profit selling blank regular and silveries to me rather than
putting them on the market.

IF2 gear redux
Note #37824
posted on Ideas
Friday, July 14, 2017 @ 21:22
Obviously, notes have been written before on this subject.  But those of us
under 75/130 IF2 runs have no chance of getting there at this point.  I'd be
fine with some of the other ideas that have been thrown into the mix: eliminate
tracker Repop has just occured in: cabal
run requirements for all gear, or to simplify IF2 (though I'm not sure if that
would get people to run it again).

So, this idea is to keep the run requirements, but to allow IF1 runs above 130
to count towards IF2 totals.  So 150 IF1 runs would count as 20 IF2 runs for
the purpose of determining purchasing eligibility.  Someone with 260 IF1 runs
would be able to purchase Rank 5 IF2 gear.  Or someone with 150 IF1 runs and
110 IF2 runs would be able to do the same.

It might not be perfect, but it would at least allow people to have a path
towards being able to buy their own equipment rather than paying a billion
gold to those who ran IF2 in its heyday.

I kind of liked the fact that there was unique gear you could only get one

I personally feel like I have wasted the last year running Icefall.  But
I guess if the gear will be reownable, I can make myself some gold, though.

Really?  I think the changes to the redo structure really make redos viable.
At the end of every mort you can pup.  You take a bit more damage, but R3 and
onwards is still okay.  And opk mode for T9s on a redo is pretty much a
no-brainer, since there aren't too many people stronger than you out there.
So that makes it 10% faster, with cp/quest bonuses along the way, in addition
to putting trains in instinct.

Sure, grinding trains and gold by pupping is still the best way to go, but
the gap is now narrow enough that doing a redo isn't that big a deal any more.

My 2c, anyway.

Do we still need the restriction of being naked and having no spells on

It seems like with the new saved stats code that we shouldn't need that.

Once again, I'm agreeing with Pumpkin.  Solo blacksmith got a boost when
staff lag was dropped back to one round.  That bumped my pup speed 20-25%,
and smith was by far the best solo pupper before.  There just isn't another
class that is close.  And it discourages grouping, which I don't think is
great for the health of the mud, either.

Yes, the OPK system is purely for higher powered players getting the reward
while suffering almost no negative consequences.  A number of lesser SH
have dropped themselves from the victim pool already.  Still, rewards are
really good by being in the OPK system, so it is a tough decision.  I know
it spurred interest for a bit, but I wouldn't be surprised if this ends

Alignment wishes
Note #36010
posted on Ideas
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 @ 18:45
Alignment is (to me) the single most annoying thing going for group pupping.

Right now, there are clan skills to lock alignment and change alignment.
These are great, but the change alignment people have to reset every couple
of rooms, which gets annoying.  Align lock is fun until you join a group
of aligned people and have to wait 20 minutes to get your alignment to move
so that you're not receiving 70% xp, or whatever it is.  And having the
lock run out in the middle of a big room and suddenly your align changes by
1500 points isn't fun either.  And people who don't want to join clans with
these skills are left out entirely.

I would like to see 2 new wishes:
1. Lock alignment with a command to unlock, not a timer.
2. Alignment changing +/-100 or whatever.

Alternatively, it would at least help if the clan align lock skill had a 
way to remove it other than suiciding (which is something I've done).

I know this has come up before, but not for a while.

I completely agree with Castiel that costs are too high for changing pclasses.

To me, it would be a lot more fun to experiment with classes if I didn't have
the spectre of losing 4k qp and 50m gold (mastery rebuild), probably 2k trains
and another 10m gold for an instinct rebuild of a primary skill, and at least
20 TPs to have most weapons match my new mastery type.

tracker Repop has just occured in: cabal
These numbers are more for a T9 contemplating a class change redo, but for
chars going up in tiers, the relative cost is still very high.

I would like to see:
1. When obtaining a new primary class, check to see what instinct is
assigned to skills/spells that are primary class specific, and move those
trains to deposited instinct (effectively a partial instinct rebuild).

2. Reduce mastery rebuild costs by 1% (and half the current maximum) when
you get a new tier or start a T9 redo or use a classchange.  And have those
reductions be cumulative.  So (for example) a T9 smith randomly decides to
change damage types, that would be the current 2%. But if he started a redo,
it would be 1%.  If he does a 2nd redo (without having rebuilt mastery in
the meantime), it would be a free mastery rebuild.

Yes, this might be T9-centric, but I think changing classes is a way to
keep things interesting later in the game, and the current system makes
tracker Repop has just occured in: cabal
it too expensive to try things out.  Even with my proposal, there are still
significant costs (opportunity cost of doing a redo, or 2k+ qp classchange,
TPs spent on weapon damage types).

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I *like* there being a power gap.  Well,
I don't like it when I get attacked by Loktar or Wire.  But it still means
there is something to strive for.

If there isn't a power gap, then that implies there is a de facto end point
to the game.  And if I reach the end, I'm going to quickly lose interest and
find other ways to spend my time.  If the top 200 players or whatever are
functionally identical, I wouldn't find it worthwhile to do any sort of grind.

tracker Repop has just occured in: cabal
Declining trains as suggested would remove any possibility of someone else
pulling another Visionaire and go from start to top 30 pups T9 in a couple
of years, which doesn't seem to me to be a way to reduce a power gap (if that
is even really a problem to begin with).

Not a fan of this as a way to increase member retention.

If blacksmith is to be changed, I think it would be reasonable to decrease
the power in large rooms, but compensate by increasing power in small/medium
rooms.

I was thinking maybe modifying the hammerswing algorithm to take into account
the number of mobs being swung at.  Rather than capping at a certain number of
mobs, scale the damage.  When fighting maybe 5-7 mobs, damage is similar to
current.  When fighting maybe 15 mobs, each gets 75% of current, and 20 mobs
might be 65%.  When fighting small number of mobs, I'd actually boost damage
to maybe 125%.  Don't get hung up on the numbers, only for illustration.
Lasher and others could figure out more appropriate numbers.

Read note 8539 on games forum if you don't know the rules.

I have 1 each of the following I am selling for 10m:
@x019De@x202nver Br@x202onc@x019o
@x032Car@x238oli@x248na Pa@x238nth@x032ers
@x160New E@x019ngla@x188nd Pa@x019trio@x160ts
@x125Arizo@x238na Card@x125inals

Also available for 20m to double your winnings:
:::2 pt conversion:::

So you could potentially buy 5 TPs for 10m if you pick the right team,
or 10 TPs for 30m with the 2 pt conversion.  Again, read the rules if you
aren't sure how it works.

I think the first thing to figure out is whether having a large chunk of the
T9 population abandon SH for a while in order to do some sort of redo would
even be a good thing.  It would reduce the number of players available for
epics and raids.  It might make SH gqs more worthwhile for lesser gq-ers.
Levelling areas would have more players, less rare exp would be available.
I don't think any of these are showstoppers, but it is worth thinking about.

I agree that a T9 redo is a suboptimal choice for power gaming.  I'm fast
at cps, but with the cp cap I might only average 1k-1.2k qp/day more on a 
redo than sitting and pupping (where I also earn more gold and trains).
Mostly, you're better off trying to buy qp with pup gold than doing a redo
for qp.  The flip side is that for a number of people, pupping is boring
and leveling is more interesting.  So enhanced rewards for redos would
probably get more SHs redoing (again, if that's something desired).

As far as redoing earlier tiers, I believe if the reward were sufficient,
it would be a great option for T9 SHs who are getting burnt out on the
pupping/epic grind.  I'd spend 6 months redoing all the tiers if there
was a great reward at the end.

And I really do like Visionaire's idea of dual primary/subclasses, which
is why I earlier tried to smoosh the two ideas together.  If a T9 starts
a T0 makeover and immediately has access to 2 pclasses (maybe starting
each tier at R2), to me that would be a reward that would make me want 
to run the tiers again.  A charging blacksmith, or a timeshifted 
sorcerer, or an ambushing harmer would add more variety without needing
to add a ton of concepts to the game.

I agree with Jasnah on this.  An enchanter will be casting enchants and then 
looking at the item to see if the item is worth continuing with - over and 
over, which definitely leads to mistakes.  On items purchased from a shop, 
the first step is normally solidifying to try to get a +6 damroll.  Unless 
you want to avoid disenchants altogether, you're going to be disenchanting 
pieces over and over.  Aliases are going to have the confirm option stuck 
in there because it'd be way to onerous to use otherwise.  The existing
syntax is great if you have a unique item, such as a goal reward, and want
to get the best possible enchants.  But it is not nearly as good if you
are enchanting an open or closed clan set.

On the original matter of botting, to me it personally feels as though
having a script to automatically make decisions and keep enchanting
until you get something you want sounds like a bot.  Stacking 100
commands feels very bot-like to me, too, since there is no downside
and you can walk away from your computer.  But as long as we have clear
guidelines, we can work with whatever.

Also, in regards to possible enchanting changes... I don't think enchanting
deserves xp rewards, unless we go to a system where blacksmiths tempering
or clerics casting heals or crafters creating skins also gives xp.
Enchanting gives its own rewards.  I'd also like to see less down time
for enchanter's focus.  I'd also like enchanter's focus to reduce enchant
spell casting lag.

I like the concept.  I also like the idea of it being a reward for going
all the way back to T0 after hitting T9 (probably with the same cp caps
that T9 redoers have now).

Could add some more interest to the end-game process.  It would increase
the power gap, though, but that could be overcome with PK-centric builds.
