Ok, since we can probably agree that pure fighters need some help
I asked around and played around etc etc. and this is what
we came out with.
Call it Charge
Make it do like 60-70damage like backstab dose
make it a battle starter only, like backstab
Make it so you have to be ridding a mount of some sort
make it so you have to have ride and Warcry
make it Klien only skill
perhaps 70str 70con 70dex would be about right for the skill
Insted of para, like backstab, make it set person to sitting for
A level preq probably a good idea here too
I think thats it, I think this will help out the pure
fighter, so that they will have a chance in pkill again.
I mean when I fight pure fighter I honestly laugh cause
they really are a weak class in pkill. In mob kill yeah you need
um to take the blows, but pkill they get WFW paraed or just blinding arrow
up the ass till they drop.
Please append more ideas to this skill and what not
I heard skill trees were put aside so thats why im posting this

I agree that pure fighters need help. They need skills and abilities that
are ONLY available to them. However I don't think that 'charge' is a
very good idea. Firstly, one of my favorite things about Legend is its
uniqueness. We shouldn't copy a skill from another mud. Secondly,
restricting the hometown to non-ancient would be better, since there are
fighters from London and Lima, or at least, they're trying. Thirdly, this
is a bad version of backstab. You'll only be able to use it once, and then
be stuck on a horse and unable to use any good skills for the rest of
I would like to see a set of new pure fighter skills, one for each combo:
str/dex, str/con, and dex/con. They would require perhaps 80 or 90 in
each of those two, and have other fightskills as prereq. For example, one
idea I have is 'ram'--a combination of dash and bash. It would allow you,
when standing in a room adjacent to your foe, to rush into the room, and
ram him, knocking him to the ground and doing a fair bit of damage.
This is just one idea I've been toying with. I'm sure that if we put our
heads together, we can come up with plenty more.

GOod idea if it only randomly sets to sitting like backstab is only
Sounds cool..but I doubt it would go in !

We have a few non-dex initiate-only skills written for skill trees,
but don't expect to see them before then.

This sounds like it would be a good skill, but i would like it
to be able to use it not riding and not require so much stuff.
If it is going to be a fighters version of backstab then make it so,
dont have it require heaps of stuff cause backstab doesnt.
Also i like milos idea of being able to use it from another room and
having different skills for each different fighter. But one thing that she
did miss is the con versions, and as i'm a con fighter i want a skill
that will benifit me not only others.
Also why make it push them to the ground when para is 10 times better?
Like i said before then make it do simmilar stuff as backstab, if your
charging then shouldnt it do a mixture of both as you would get so scared
you would piss your pants if that was happing to you?
