hope this isnt game info but...
how about taking dam roll away from them completely
making the lowest mind char -fighters- who need them the
most not be able to get it is sick...its late and I can only think
of 2 major str helds, and they're both minus mind now...to me
its a problem...just my opinion..only matters when i make sense :)

What should have been done is to remove all the hit/dam on those
items that were to be changed leaving a reduced rent version with
the same stats. Then update all the player files with that version
and then change the hit/dam stuff in the game to what it is now.
Nobody would be over rent or have messed up stats but most importantly
old characters won't dominate pk and pk tourneys for years to come.

yeah, I like the new hit and damage stuff, but its true that old
players will dominate. Something has to be done about that. I know
imms hate changing playerfiles, but hey, it might be necessary this time.
You should post this a possibility, and see how much people hate it. In
the name of change and making legend better, you might be surprized at
how many people wont mind.

as much MORE as I'll suck then I do now, I'm for it. I can always

I agree with splat...it is another alternative. Here we go
saying skill trees, but arent they going to genuine classes?
make snipers, snipers? make str fighters hit hard? con hit not very hard b
but have lots of hp? mages do lots of damage with only spells...? well tak
-ing away all the dam-hit roll eq would bring it one step closer
but all this might be something I heard wrong...who knows

Well with the new stats, that change will take away many of fighters
abilities, like expert swords. and to take away many people's fighting sk
skills is just plain mean :P. Anywho, the only way i see a pfile change
working, is if the herne horns went back to their old stats, but took
away the damroll, and lowered the rent.

I just want to agree that although DTs and such help to phase
out old eq, there will be a significant number of people with old
hit/dam eq for years to come. With most other eq changes, everyone
didn't have the changed items, but I'd be willing to bet that
more than half of people over level 40 have an old herne's horn
or two. It's really unfair to new people and people who DT.
I personally have 27 dam from eq, most of it old eq, but
in the name of fairness I wouldn't be against a pfile change

I'm a str fighter who hits like crap now, but hell, change
the pfiles, I'll always adapt. And with extra rent I'd be even
more fun =P

Yes. I agree.
Let's remove -> all <- the old equipment from
the player files.
Old eq sucks anyway.

how many blinding wormys you see around today? Or even 3 years ago?
there are plenty of other items from the past I have heard people drool
over in conversation that I don't see around today. Yeah, people with old
stuff will dominate for a while, but it eventually phases out. Why pwipe
for this change and not for the others? Yes, hit/dam affects quit a few
items, mudwide, but pwipe is sorta extreme, no? I see old eq as a kind
of bonus for having an old char, incentive to keep your character a while
instead of making 'disposable pkillers'. I plan to enable this one as soon
pkok rears it's ugly head (twists the dagger) and this guy has no old stuf
Maybe it'd be best to wait and see just how much of a differance all this
really makes with a fully new-eq'd char, huh?
Tuesday, March 21, 03:47PM
a major difference is that blinding wormies weren't around for
2 years. Also you could only use one at a time. Now adays
I'd say 60% if not more use herne horns and use 2 if possible.
I think it should be removed, but it probably won't, so don't
Tuesday, March 21, 06:09PM
I say, do it, remove them, the goal of these changes was to balance
with all the old eq, it balances, new chars, and leaves old ones
with an extremly unfair advantage, I say, remove all hit/dam items
give 100 str, x dam, 100 dex x hit. And add a spir req on things
to prevent people from making godlike 100x3 chars.

Well I for one don't like the idea of modifing pfiles to
reflect the new changes to hit/dam gear. All this talk of
people with old eq dominating pkill is a crock. If your
good enough you'll still beat them. I put in alot of hours
on each of my characters, modifying their eq to get the kit
that I like with the stats that I like. As an old character
I should be allowed to have old gear. Why should I have to
have my eq adjusted because it gives a so called advantage in
pkill. To bad for pkill. Alot of us don't whine and complain
when 'balance' changes go into the game to adjust whatever type
is dominating this week.
If you wanna make changes to gear in the game, fine, good but
don't punish my non pkillers for a sake of balance in pkill.
Pfiles should be left as is.

I wish people would read things properly, adjusting the pfiles
wouldn't mean you get the current version of the hit/dam eq
but you'd get the same stats without the +hit or +dam.
That is if it's done right o'course, no hassles this way
for anyone but the IMMs. It also isn't just a pk thing but
being able to kill mobs a lot easier than others is still
an imbalance that has always been corrected in the past.

I'd support a change to the pfiles, even though
it'd mean losing stuff.
Thursday, April 06, 01:09AM
I'd like to see Ptwang's idea imped in spite of the fact that I and a lot
of mine are hit/dam monster.
