Just wondering why you can go ooc with some spell affects
and not others.

yeah, what's up wiith that? and personally, i think unclanneds should
be able to go ooc with any kinda spell efeect :P

Because the OOC is just that, OOC. It was being used to prolong
effects of spells, and its not meant for that use.

It's still being used to prolong the life of timed eq, and whatnot.
If it is really ooc, why don't we make it no-chat, no-tell as well?
Also, being able to group ooc for ic purposes seem to be rather illegal
too. I know it's been suggested earlier, but why not have ppl enter ooc
from the menu, instead of from the game?

Some affects currently aren't queriable by acts, and acts run the
ooc entirely. Expect the acts system to be able to do this in the

on that note, i have a mage that has to cast strength ic to be able to mov
ooc.. seems a little bit strange but on the other hand, then you can't pic
something up ooc that you can't carry ic..but i just wonder anyways..

One idea I have about ooc is perhaps whois should be unusable while ooc?
I know certain people, not mentioning names, that go ooc first thing when
they enter the game, then check who all is on that could be a potential
threat, then go ic later after lots of whois use .. Just seems as another
use of ooc for ic

Hmm, i usually go OOC first thing on entering the game but
you don't see me lingering there long or renting out.
I've a bad memory, I just do it to be sure I'm not
at 5 hps, encumbered etc and to see where I've rented :)
Another major factor is I don't know how lagged I am,
I often hit 1 to enter the game and wait like 10 seconds
before anything happens and well, if there's any threat
at the inn, I'm probably worse off anyway as they'll
be just spamming away to whack me when i return. :)

Oh yeah.. I never use whois anyway.. I use whos
just before I go OOC, if there's nobody to attack
(as there usually isn't) I just read the boards.
