I been playing around with tainted arrows, and so far, I been
very disappointed. I wonder why I still see most people using a bow
First of, the rent for each tainted arrows is insanely high. 110 each is
very unbalance compared to ammos for guns. For example, fastloader, which has
has 5 rounds, only cost 15 rent each.
Is the spell effect really worth it? To me, 110 rent per arrow, with or
without being permanent or not is just plain wrong. Most deadeyes won't
mind fleeing when being jumped and waste 2 rounds to dipped their arrows
in a vial.
Some people told me that you can still use the dip command, even when
the helpfile for it was pulled out. I'm guessing that its probably
a bug, and that eventually the command will also be removed.
So anyway, what is the point of this post? I just hope that dip
officially get put back in. I'm not saying take away taint either,
I'm just suggesting that we have the two skills available for people
to choose. Some might like the permanent effect, some might not. Either
way, let us have that choice when preparing our arrows for a fight.

Some imms...well, 1 anyway :P seems to think that dipping in a vial was
unbalanced, so until you convince them, which is highly unlikely, you're

I spoke to the creator of taint, and with patient, he
explained why taint arrows are so renty. And I must say
I agree with him.
So umm.. nothing to see here, move along... as Maja would say
