I dont know about you guys, but I like the system the way it was.
I used to be a spam poulticer that spammed 80 spr for 100 hps poultices
and also backstabbed for 75 points of damage and shot blinding arrows
and scattered and made doppels too. I was able to kill anything.
Now I cant do that anymore, thanks to that vocal minorty that are screamin
for pkill balance. I hate those MFs. Ruining the game for people like
me that have 400,000,000 xp, a big house that cost 29,000 a day to
maintain, a nifty pretitle. My life sucks in RL, but here I am a
millionaire! Im all nasty in RL, but here Im sexy, and I could do
anything! Please dont change my world! What am I going to do?
I spent 27 days of non-stop mob killing to get my "All Knowing Poetry"
title.... if you change damage eq, it will take me 43 days. Please dont
do that -Whine-. Who cares if it makes sense, or ,makes it more
challenging.... this game is a replacement for life! I need it to keep
Can you please reverse all the so-called "progress" we made
in the name of pkill so I could have even a bigger house. Could you
make the repop times for mobs with lots of money faster too?
I only need to mud for 18 more days straight to get that last
color coupon so I could trade it for the rare Flagg Doll from last

Heh, quite funny actually. You have such a shart wit, Poetry!

Yeah! Who cares if all the old eq was way overbalancing
and let us solo mobs 10 times our size, and earn xp like there
was no tomorrow! As long as we don't use it to pk, right?

I think you missed the point of my post, perhaps I got a little carried
away. My bad, I guess.
At no point did I ask for the return of any of the things that have
I was trying to illustrate how those of us who choose not to pkill
have had several major changes over the past year or so to accommodate
your style of play (pkill). And now you were asking for another
major change, to healing.
It seems to me that people come here for many different things, we
each get something different out of being here. We are all forced
to accommodate the changes made in response to those for whom
balance is important, ie pkillers.
Of course you have the right to ask for changes that would increase
your enjoyment here. By the same token, I have the right to ask
that those same changes NOT be made, because they would decrease

Angharad, I really don't think the change to hp gear, or a
lot of others, have been made just to accomodate pkill. Someone
with 50 or 60 con shouldn't be able to wear a bunch of +hp eq
and get 500-600 hp, whether they're a pkiller or not. It makes
no sense. I really don't see where that issue is specific to
I'm sure it's a great deal of fun for you to solo almost any
mob in the game when you have tons of hp you shouldn't have, but
just because you're not killing another player doesn't mean you
And no, I don't even know if you used to wear lots of +hp items,
I'm just using +hp as an example of a change that makes sense for
everyone and not just those who pk.

Damn straight Im smart.
But seriously, if you think vocal minoritys like me rule this place
then you are wrong. If I ruled this place I would not allow cheese
like pkok to come in and ruin the game. You guys can argue against
this all you want, but thats how I feel about it. I was a very active
pkiller that almost completely lost interest.
You guys are still getting your pretitles and still mindlessly killing mob
all day and building bigger houses. I can't understand why you opppose
changes that would make the game better for me and the likes.
You guys have everything.. and everything I like about this game
has been serverely compromised.
So really, you all just piss me off when I suggest a change that I
put a lot of thought it... fought many fights, lost many fights (cause
some god damn part time pkiller decided to load up on the BS healing items
in this game and then challenge Poetry, stroking all 3 stones - back when
it was possible - using corentinus, alll the god damn healers in the south
seas, and chalicing and picking up herbs on the way), and this is my
Its real and it concerns my aspect of the game. Im not post about
removing pretitles or housing (which sucks for pkill, IMO) so back the
And stop complain that you wont be able to amass xp as quickly.
Trust me, there are better things to do with your time than collect
immortal dolls, or redeem points. Ok, you guys are acheivers, I can
deal with your existance as long as you can deal with mine.
When Merc and Limerick were the pkill gods, and Mordred was chasing
my newbie ass around, things were more balanced than they are now.
More limited, yes, but a lot more fun too. I would drop all the changes
we did to go back to the LegendMUD that drew me in 5 years ago.

Seriously, I can't remember one non-pkiller, non-imm who suggested any
of the changes Angharad mentioned in the earlier thread. I can remember
seeing pkillers argue vehemently for those changes to be made. That
makes it look like those changes were made in response to the pkill
Pretitles and housing, while pretty, don't affect the way my chars
play the game. Changes to healing do, as do all the other changes
mentioned, to eq, pfiles, grad stats, etc. I don't see how pretitles
affect the way anyone plays. Housing, yeah, I can see one change
that affected pkillers, that pkillers may not have wanted. The other
change that affected pkillers, pkok, that was imm initiated, and
didn't come from non-pkillers. See, non-pkillers have had to accept
lots of changes that affect them that were requested by pkillers. Pkillers
have only had to accept one change that affects them that may have been
asked for by non-pkillers (housing). From where I stand, the giving
up for the sake of another's style of play is very one-sided.
So don't slam people who oppose your ideas that will improve your style
of play while downgrading theirs. Consider that they feel they have given
up more for your style of play than you have given up for theirs. And
consider that they believe that their style of play has just as much
validity as yours.

point or the other...?
