Level limits in PKOK
'They way players are talking is that pkok will not have a range limit on who
you can attack or not attack.. is that true or will it be the same 10 level
limit?' Sabu says.
LadyAce says, 'Help PKOK explains the answer to that one.'
'Bleah coulda just said it would be the same =p,' Sabu says.
You say to Sabu, 'I'm trying to teach you how to feed yourself :).'
'What happened to the old LT that had Rufus's description on how rent for item is figured out?' Temptress Myrella says. 'I cant seem to find it anymore?'
LadyAce says, 'I don't think it's been removed intentionally or anything...'
'I'm not sure which exact one it is though,' LadyAce says.
'Neither am I which is why its annoying I cant seem to find it anymore,' Temptress Myrella says.
A mediocre thief, cloaked in death drinks firebreather from a shot of neat whiskey.
'I've been away from the mud for two years,' Grolsch says. 'Are skill trees in
'Nope,' LadyAce says. 'If you want to see what's been added recently, help updates has a list.'
The Devil's Trident
A pale and sickly mage says, 'Why doesnt Devils Trident have backstab ?'
'Its a sword,' Rashomon says.
'Its a stabbing weapon,' a pale and sickly mage says.
A pale and sickly mage says, 'You dont swing it like a bat.'
'How could you backstab with a trident?' Temptress Myrella says.
A mediocre thief, cloaked in death says, 'But it is treated as a sword.'
'They use them to fish!' a pale and sickly mage says. 'Ever see the little mermaid.'
'You slash with the points of it,' Lord Danar says. 'Not thrust with it.'
'Either way, what's the difference?' Lady Yvonne says, yawning with boredom. 'It's fine the way it is, giving it backstab would make it ridiculously overpowered.'
Hit & Damroll Rent
'How come the new rent on Hit&Dam items is so high?' Temptress Myrella says.
'Its kinda sad to be so much for a lousy +1 hit or dam,' Temptress Myrella
Lady Yvonne says, bored, 'Quite a few lost rent.'
Temptress Myrella says to Lady Yvonne, 'Not really, the lost serious amounts of Hit or Dam if they did.'
'Yeah, that was kinda the point, wasn't it?' Lady Yvonne says, yawning with boredom, to Temptress Myrella. ':p.'
'Hmmm...that's a good one to ask Sandra,' LadyAce says. 'The builders discussed it as a group, and that's what they came up with. After the change has had a chance to filter down and everyone is used to it, that'll be a good time to see how well they did in reaching their goals.'
'I find the rate of about 500 rent for +1 is kinda too high,' Temptress Myrella says.
'But a well-equipped lev 50 (nonmage) is at about 42k rent, they can afford that 500 rent each for +dam,' LadyAce says.
Temptress Myrella says, 'Not really, my well equiped fighter had only 2k free rent at lvl 50.'
'Well, but did your well-equipped fighter have items with +dam or resistences or were you doing odd stat things?' LadyAce says.
Temptress Myrella says with a chuckle to you, 'Well I got 100 str/con and 95 dex.'
'Well, ok then :) if you want essentially 3 100 stats, you might not have room for +dam. that seems ok to me,' LadyAce says.
'I dont mind that he dont have room, I just think they are a little too renty atm,' Temptress Myrella says.
'I'd like to see more nifty high-rent stuff to use extra rent now,' Lady Yvonne
says in a bored voice. 'Making permasneak items work would be nice :p.'
'Once you attack, it breaks the sneak,' Lady Yvonne says, bored. 'The item doesn't resneak once you stop attacking. Therefore, they don't work.'
A pale and sickly mage says, 'Its eaiser to get dam then hit now.'
'Rem and wear it again,' Rashomon says to Lady Yvonne.
Lady Yvonne says, yawning with boredom, to Rashomon, 'The point of having something be permanently one thing or another is that I shouldn't have to.'
'All I can really say is that we're listening, and we'll continue to look at the issue as the changes filter down to all chars,' LadyAce says.
Spiked Quarterstaff Change
Rashomon says to you, 'Well just curious...its more of a question for rufus,
but why was the huge spiked 1/4staff changed when itWAS in spec?'
'I changed that actually,' Sandra says. 'I counted wrong. Someone brought it up to me yesterday.'
'Just curious..if you change it back would I have to get a new one?' Rashomon says to Sandra. 'Or would my old one change?'
Sandra says, 'You'd need to get a new one.'
'Umm shapechange, anywhere in the near future?' a pale and sickly mage says.
'No,' LadyAce says.
'As a general truth, any skill or spell that's in the list that isn't implemented already probably won't be for quite some time,' Ea! says.
Bleeding In Status
'Umm can we have bleeding added to status?' Temptress Myrella says. 'Or is
there any other way to see if you are bleeding than score?'
'Status tells, doesn't it?' LadyAce says.
'Bleeding is already in status,' Fuego Inferno says to Temptress Myrella.
'Well it never works for me,' Temptress Myrella says.
Temptress Myrella peers at herself myopically.
'Then your probably not bleeding when you test it :P,' Fuego Inferno says.
Ability to Order the Elements in Prompts
Jesus says, 'Is there a possibility that we can code prompt to show in the order
you select the items?'
'Not easily,' Ea! says. 'But suggest it on idea, and I'll add it to the list of things to change. It's a good idea, it's just not easy.'
Announcements for Killing Mobs
'Is there any chance we could get infos for killing the really big mobs?'
Temptress Myrella says. 'Such and the Demon King, Dis Keeper, etc?'
'Not too hard to put in,' LadyAce says. 'Can suggest it to builders. Might get annoying if too many people did it.'
'It'd kinda be announcing mob status on public channels =),' Kaige says.
Temptress Myrella says, 'It'd be fun for bragging rights, And I know it may be annoying so not too many mobs will do it..'
'Could have them recite a poem in honor of themselves, and then have all the other mobs mourn, too :),' LadyAce says.
'Just what we need, more spam,' Jesus says.
'What is spam to you may be loads of fun to someone else,' Temptress Myrella says to Jesus.
One of Suzaku's seven warriors says, full of concern, 'Is there plans to make
an ancient china area?'
'I'd love to see one proposed,' Kaige says.
'None of the current imms are working on it, so I'd say no,' LadyAce says to one of Suzaku's seven warriors.
PKOK and Clans
'With the new change of PKOK, dont you think we should make the limit of clans
larger?' Fuego Inferno says.
'Number of, or members?' Kaige says.
Sandra says, 'Not til the clans start to fill, imo.'
'Then weed out the icky ones!' Temptress Myrella says to Sandra.
LadyAce says, 'I would rather see us use up the space we have with strong clans first.'
Kaige says, 'Currently the average clan only has 9 members. But also has an average of 4 seekers. Pk clans only have around 8 members and 2 seekers right now.'
Healing in PKOK
'How is healing going to work out?' one of Suzaku's seven warriors says
compassionately. 'Can i just accept craven then heal someone who kills him,
then reject craven right away, or will healing set off the timer or wha?'
Ea! says, 'Basically, you'll need to accept everyone who the person that you're healing accepts if it's within the timer.'
One of Suzaku's seven warriors says, overflowing with compassion, to Fuego Inferno, 'I dont want to fight craven, i just want to help someone else do it :p.'
'We used to punish some PK interferers by force enabling them,' Fuego Inferno says.
'Can we force accept all now?' Fuego Inferno says.
Ea! nods his agreement with Fuego Inferno.
'I'd be more likely to say 'no more pk for you, little one' as a punishment,' LadyAce says. 'But that's cuz I see pk as a privilege.'
