Would it be possible that priority be changed, so that you always
got your licks in before fleeing, when max wimpy? This I think
is one of the reasons, why kick is so weak now. In the pkill
tourney whenever someone would hit their wimpy they would
usually be screwed, if they happened to get priority all
goes well and both get hits, but if you don't they get their
hits in but you don't. So what are you supposed to do, tank
everyone? Just arguements sake, say that when you hit your wimpy
you will get priority 50 percent of the time. Well thats
just 50 percent of the time you will get no hits in while
your opponent gets theirs. Ok so max wimpy is bad, what does
this mean? So you set wimpy to 0, kick/flee is effectively dead,
You start a fight and every two rounds you get a skill choice,
your not gonna type flee so you can come back are you and do
one of the same skills? No, of course not, not unless you
want to backstab. Of course a dex fighter can't tank a str
fighter, but you set priority and wimpy the way it is and
a dex fighter either has tank or hope he gets priority.
This is unacceptable in my opinion. If you could always be
assured that you got your hits in it would work.
Or maybe it would be better if the person max wary got priority
after all they are being more careful, and have less hitroll
and stuff, obviously its suicide for a dex/perc type to go
full agg in order to try to kick flee on a str type and
This is the same old problem of having to rentout to gain
priority in pkill, and the solution is worse than the problem
was before I think. Papercut makes a good argument about the
weaknesses of dex/perc, but I think this is the cause.

I personally think priority should be determined by perc, i mean,
there's no good for perc anyway... at least in pkill. Against mobs,
do what you must, hit/flee rarely works on the newer mobs anyway.

I disagree with Papercut. My personaly fav thing to do to a mob
is to firestorme/Immolate flee them. I would like to have prio sure
but if i don't ahh well It's not like a dex person does alot
of damage with there weapon anyway.

yep, I think I suggested this a while back. a random priority formula woul
d be nice; or make priority based on a stat

agg/wary have quite a bit to do with how initiative is determined,
seemed rather logical.

It may seem logical, but, also the most logical tactic for
a dex fighter having awesome hitroll and ac would be to
max wary and max wimpy, priority is of such importance, that any other
factors kinda get thrown out. Ie if you gotta go max agg to get
priority then thats just what you gotta do.
