It constantly amazes me how we mages are "constantly overpowered" and stat
spells "never fail, or have a rare fail". Especially coming from characte
amassed 3 100 stats while neglecting everything. I would hope that if you
neglect a stat that you should have severe problems, especially in pkill.
I think that they should have a min requirement of 25 in ALL stats to be a
effectively. Call me a madman if you want, but if you want to balance thi
by balancing yourself, for how can you make a comparison if your not balan

and mages shouldnt have warrior skills either,
but this is a classless mud, and yes mages have too many debilitating

I would suggest you try making a 3 100 stat char, and try how it
fares against dex mages in pk
And while we are at the subject of balance
TUMBLE- one skill, and HOW MANY things does
SINK one spell, how many other spells and skills (dip)
can it prevent?>?
Give me one equivalent fighter
skill that has such power

While we are at being able to 'neglect' other stats.
A dex mage can practically 'neglect' all other
stats other than mind and dex and be immune to every single skill/spell
in the game other than elbow and warcry, both of which are utterly
Granted sniping/backstabbing is an exception, but it seems nobnobody's
immune to that anyway.
I amassed 3 100 stats, and i am 'immune' to most
combat skills. BUT, i am still very vulnerable to spels,
and i had to sacrifice a LOT for the limited immunity i got.

Hey, dex mages are choke bait, works on them most the
time as i just found out earlier today.
As far as other things are concerned, fighters
shouldn't be as good as mages as they're a lot easier

Question... since when is tumble a mage skill?
Friday, March 13, 01:16AM
Oh and being vulnerable to spells isn't such
a big deal, if a cause mage casts immolate on
you for example, they're only doing damage to
themselves, it's like sacrificing his own hps
to reduce yours by a similar amount when he
could have used a skill instead and been a lot
better off overall.
Kinda whacky, perhaps that needs looking into.
Something like 25 mana for 50 hps damage would
make it worthwhile.

The problem i have is with dex mages.
Cure critical should be looked into, dex fighters with nearly
1k hps doesnt seem too much fun to play against.
As far as spells go, it's not the damage i am
worried about, it's the stupid blind/bind/clumsy/weaken and all that other
that i am worried about, it's mostly blind, bind and other debilitating sp
spells that fighters have no defense against.
As far as mages being harder to make, that may be the case solo, but
since quite a few chars are just being churned out, i don't think
that's such a big deal.
Besides, mages aren't that much harder to build compared to bulding, say,
a druid or a surgeon and it's not like they get to reap a whole \lot of be
cause they are hard to build

here's a somewhat simple solution: get better strategy.
anybody can be beaten no matter how good their char is.
plus, if they have an powerful manufactured 3 100 fighter,
or one of those mages that could stun since level 3 &
has 600+ mana, it's alot more fun to kick the crap out of em
and you can gloat more cuz you did it the hard way.
More power to the inventive people!

unfortunate to say, most 'strategies' offered to non-mage chars
mostly involve dexterity or perception, and there are very few options
for those that fit into neither category.
Sure, we could have everyone become a dex char of some sort,
but i think there should be viable options to con or str fighters
without the capability of casting spellsl

well, here's an option...if you are part of a clan and you are
doing regular fighting (not one on one dueling), why not get
a 100 mind mage in your clan to cast magic sink on you?
