In the last few days One the newbie I have made I have noticed that
I have been getting really low rolls upon leveling. Now I
know that the character in question ahs atleast a 33 con based
on the order I picked my stats, so I'd like to know has the code in
regards to hit points gained upon leveling been chaged at all?
With my newbie I gained 2,3,2 and 2 hit points with each of the
levels I have gained, considerin my con must be atleast 33 and from
what I know about the equipment I am wearing it has been atleast 33
each time I leveled so I am wondering why the roll have been so
low. I know I am not the only one who has encountered this, in
conversation with other players they too have commented the HP they
have gotten upon leveling seems low. It would be nice if this
could be examined.

I agree with Tiamat, I have had characters getting
-noticeably- lower hp than usual 4 times in sequence now!
It could of course be just bad luck, but when a 100 con
char gets just 8 hp, that -never- has happened before, and
then a 60 con char just gets 4 hp, and then -other- people
report the same problem, I start wondering..
Anyway, I have now been told an investigation has been requested,
so I hope it will put some light on the matter...
I still wanted to post it here, to point out that Tiamat's
experience isn't an -isolated- event :)

100 con characters hit a new low.. 7hp =(
I really hope there was a mistake..

A 100 con char only gets 7 hp???
Now I really think there must be something wrong..

You have to remember guys, the ammount of con is not the only
consideration. Level is also a big one. 1 con point is worth,
give or take 4 hp at level 50, but nowhere near that at low levels.
Therefore, alot of this info does no good for the sole reason
that you neglected to tell them your level. Have fun.

Mandarb, you really shoudn't presume that
-all- people -by default- are dumber than you! :P
Of course I told them the level concerned when I
reported what happened!
My 100 con char got 8 hp when levelling to lv 44,
and never got so little at lower levels, not since
100 con was reached. My 60 con char got 4 hp when levelling
to lv 21, and hasn't -got- so little for ages, although
being at lower level...
I should think that most of us who reported what happened
understand the level thing just as well as you do..

-has no minus hp gear-
-has 547 hitpoints with 100 con at level 50-

Yah.. Con was my second choice and around level 8 I'm getting
TWO and THREE hp levels.. thats just obscene....
I'm tempted to hold off on leveling entirely until
this is tinkered with.. of course my con will be higher at levle 50..
but using this projected estimate.. We are looking at 150-190
hp at level 50..

Yeah, it certainly seems lower than it used to be.

nod, it's is lower, i lvlled roughly 4 newbies today, and it seems
that they're all getting hps that are way lower than usual, and
from my projections, a 40 con char would end up with near 200 hps :p
(as opposed to roughly 340).
I've basically stopped lvlling newbies, but i seriously think there
should be a filter introduced for chars that lvlled during this period.
In general, it looks like ppl got cheated roughly 3-4 pts per lvl,
and that would have a major impact in at least pk. (let's say a 100con
char lvls with 7.5 pts per, which gives him 20 + 367.5 + 15 = 402.5
hps at lvl 50.. a far, far, far cry from the roughly 565ish hps
that seemed to be the minimum-ish for older 100 con, lvl 50 chars)

If it's any help, I got 9,8,7 for levels 47,48,49 at 100 con.
I still don't think level has anything to do with it. If I had
100 con at level 10, I should still get roughly the same range of
hp per level as a level 45 or so.. or maybe I'm wrong.

lvl does influence how much con you gain per lvl, i think, simply
because 1 extra con at lvl 1 doesn't give you the same amount of hps
that extra con would had you been lvl 50. but still, at lvls 47+,
that difference should be at most 1 pt.

I don't claim to know anytihng about the codes or the procedures.
All I know is that I have leveled a few ties in the last few days.
I am now a level 24 with a con of 43 and I got 3 hps last level I got 1.
maybe that's the way it's suppposed to be, i'm not sure, but it didn't
help me much :(

Lvl doesn't affect hp when levelling, the extra hp you get when
you wear con gear at highlev is factoring in the extra con for all

By the way, thanks for reporting this one, everyone.
It was a sneaky little bug, but we squashed it.
Sunday, December 13, 06:23PM
Kewl, now I hope on rerolls my newbie will end up
with more than 32 hits at level 5 :-)
Sunday, December 13, 06:56PM
hopefully i'll get to reroll too, looks like i caught the tail
end of that bug :p

My reroll increased my HP's by around 50%, from 98 to 141.
Monday, December 14, 11:54AM
-went from 547 to 551 hitpoints on the reroll-
-seems destined to have lousy hitpoints at 100 con-
-will live with it though-
-thanks coder type people for fixing it-
