Ok I think that this thing is really really not needed here.
I mean str people I think got hurt the most from the dam/hit change
and now with this thing that I bet every dex and perhaps con
pkill will have in there bag to whip out when fighting str
people thus giving them a huge advantage. +that parry bonus
just makes it worse str people only attack a limited ammount
so this hurts them a lot more. I really dont see a downside
to useing this item. The drawbacks are not there
with 3kish rent and only one weakness to an attack that wont
come into affect cause its only used against str people.
I used this item and fought Otto in klien and I out hit
him with my 5damroll. He slashed me 10time and slashed extremlly
hard twice in the 12 rounds we just let the normal attacks
now I think there needs to be a resist to con item and
a resist to backstab item like a stone cloak that needs
a certain ammount of str to wear or something along that matter
to help balance this out. Right now as it stands
dex and con rule and str just sucks now when con people
or even dex people hit just as hard or harder than you
wow long post but hopefully this will make the imms make
the said item or just pull the resist slash item out
of the game
just my thoughts please append with your ideas thoughts
I wanna here from other people on there feelings
Iam a dex person btw and I just feel that it gives me
a unfair adavantage over str people that I shouldnt have

I will have to agree with scream on this issue.
I fought him to test out this item and he was hitting
just as hard and sometimes harder than me with a LIGHT dagger
while i was raging and he was bashed. That's just insane.

apparently you missed the item that casts a spell to resist dex
wpns, which also includes the backstab scream.... fuego used it on
me yesterday :) so i don't think we need to double it up or
anything by having 2 items

Isn't one of the intended advantages to being dex that you shouldn't take
as much damage? I can understand perhaps making the changed item now have
a much higher rent as compensation. However, it was and still is an item
that is very useful to newbies, which I often recommend. Changing it would
remove options for them. This mud isn't all high level pk'ers, you know.

oh and another thing: Not all strength weapons slash.

Good, all dex weapons don't pierce, I want a 4k rent resist pierce
and susept to chop item now.

I have an idea, i don't know if its feasible or not, but
might as well give it a try. I think maybe it would be better
if we got rid of all such items that reduce the amount of
damage from weapons. You could also do somehing about the spell
that reduces damage from a weapon.
I only say this because we really hinder characters that rely
on hard hitting as a source of damage, particularly str fighters
because that is their only benefit. Dex has a variety of skills available
to them not to mention being hard to hit already. Con has mucho hp's. An
And str is for hard hitting. Now if you were to gt rid of this hard hitti
ng for str fighters, what you have is a con or dex fighter with crap skill
s and hp.
True that there is a resist pierce weapon in the game, but dex fighters
don't rely as much on their hard hitting as str fighters do.
If it can't be changed or won't be changed, I'll live with it, but
just giving my opinion.

i dont know about you, but i rely on my round damage -shrug-

Archmage, if I pierced hard every round, I would be very very
-Also relies on round damage for dex.

yup i agree, that resist slash thing is too powerful
maybe tone it down a bit with hrm...for example stoneskin makes u
really slllloowww...put some disadvantage to the resist slash benefits.
and the other resist slash item (i think) is high rent and evil only...
gauche is too easy to use...

just make the 'item' that resists slash now only wieldable and not holdabl
that 'item' that casts resist pierce, has limited charges,
pretty bothersome to get and not to mention
the side effects of the spells

I realized today why I don't have a problem with the other resistances
I have access to in the game -- they're all timed. I use stoneskin and
resist fire. Both of them are of limited duration and you can catch me
when I'm not using them. The resist slash item is on all the time, which
seems awfully convenient.

well there is a resist pierce thing that's on all the time
