Players with Ports Blocked

Ruby says, 'can I get off a quick question before we start?'

Kaige says, 'sure'

Ruby says, 'Is it possible to open anouther proxy port to log into the mud?'

Kaige says, 'and the person who can answer that isn't here'

Kaige says, 'drop Ea a note and ask him.'

Ruby says, 'actualy not asking for myself'

DeSade says to Kaige, 'no I was gonna ask if hypothetically quimby was sitebanned what would he have done :P'

LadyAce says, 'you don't like 9999?'

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'It's for Lillian'

DeSade says to LadyAce, 'people are having work block 9999'

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'somehow she got banned from using that as a port..'

Ruby nods his agreement with DeSade.

LadyAce says, 'ok, but we can't really help with that'

LadyAce says, 'she'd need to use a proxy server and go through it to get to us'

Kaige says to DeSade, 'people generally tend to get sitebanned for not listening and repeating behavior that they've been asked to stop.'

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'if like say a port with two didgets was opened she could use it'


Any More Create Changes?

Boss says, 'any plans to make more changes to create? besides fix the bug with balm?'

ArchAngel smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'No plans that I know of'

LadyAce says, 'Ea says nothing immediate comes to mind'

LittlePiff says, 'i gotsa question'

Boss says, 'just leaving the whole school s.o.l, huh?'

Boss says, 'nice'

Boss rolls his eyes heavenward.

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'is he off resting his back?'

Muad'Dib puts on his dark colored robes.

LadyAce says, 'well, I think that you should send in your comments once the bug is fixed, and give the change some time'

LittlePiff says, 'Im a lvl 2 and dont have backstag y is that'

LadyAce says, 'just because we don't have changes planned, doesn't mean we think the situation is perfect'

LittlePiff says, 'backstab'

ArchAngel says to LittlePiff, 'your stats arent high enough'

LadyAce says to LittlePiff, 'just a moment, let me finish with Boss'

LittlePiff nods his agreement with ArchAngel.

Boss says, 'why are changes so quick to come that harm create? but slow to make it better?'

LadyAce says, 'this wasn't a quick change at all...'

Boss says, 'homunculi, elementals, and create healing - each right after another'

LadyAce says, 'it was a month or so of discussing, etc'

DeSade says, 'this change was at least 6 months in the works from q&a convos I think'

LadyAce nods her agreement with DeSade.

Boss says, 'but like... after elementals and homunculi - seeing how they weakened the class, why not improve it a little before imping the balm?'

Boss says, 'but that didn't happen'

Boss says, 'so oh well'

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'May I make some comments on Boss's create problems?'

LadyAce says, 'sure, go ahead.'

Ruby says to Boss, 'ok are you talking about balm affecting pk or mk?'

Boss says, 'doesn't really matter'

Boss says, 'pk was hit hard'

Boss says, 'mk not so much, but still'

Ruby says, 'actualy I do not belive it was'

Ruby says, 'I will sit here and tell you. A create mage could CREAM me anytime they wanted to'

Boss says, 'craven, dashiva, and other 2c create pkers disagree'

Ruby says, 'ahh but look at this'

Ruby says, 'They are all 2c'

Ruby says, 'what healing does 2c cause get?'

DeSade says to Boss, 'lets see what happens when fix goes in'

Ruby says, 'if anything 2c create was way overpowered when it comes to healing'


Why Put in Something Buggy?

Boss says, 'why was something put in with a bug already? isn't this stuff tested and junk beforehand?'

LadyAce says, 'if it's related to create -- otherwise I have other people in queue'

LadyAce says, 'we do lots of testing, we simply don't see everything that players do once they get going on a new feature'

Kaige says, 'yes, and as we said last week some of the situations that would show the bug cannot be found by a couple of people on a testmud every time.'

LadyAce says, 'our time is really limited. we can spend 30 hrs testing a problem, or we can get 30 people's comments after an hour's playtime'

Kaige says, 'a couple of the problems came up when the spell guts were moved from the testing command to the spell itself to replace the old one.'

DeSade says, 'the players really are the best method for finding a bug, a player will use things in ways the imms don't think of'

Kaige nods her agreement with DeSade.

Ruby nods his agreement with DeSade.

Boss says, 'maybe players should be involved in testing new stuff then?'

LadyAce says, 'we don't like to put in things with bugs, we really don't. We just can't catch everything, and there's a level of diminishing returns.'

LadyAce says, 'our experience has been that player testing on separate ports doesn't help us very much'

DeSade says to Boss, 'in effect, that is what players do, we knew it was bugged about an hour into it being in'

LadyAce says, 'there's never 30 of them playing for several hours and giving comments in context'

Kaige says, 'yeah, "in context" is hard to duplicate when it's just you and a couple of others and you know how it's SUPPOSED to work.'

DeSade says to Boss, 'for it to be effective the entire mud would need the testmud port, and why go thru the trouble when we find it here just as fast'

LadyAce says, 'so yes, we don't like it, we don't mean to do it, we just can't always avoid it.'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'we do our best to fix it as soon as we find it and can fix it.'

DeSade says, 'at least it was not a crashing bug :P'

LadyAce says, 'you can immunize yourself against this problem by not relying on any one feature of your character in order to have fun'

Boss says, 'yeah... i guess sleeping for 30 minutes after i lose hp would be a whole lot funner then using the healing that's provided with my character class'

LadyAce says, 'well, there are lots of other ways to heal'

Kaige says, 'especially if you team up with other people'

DeSade twirls a shiny scalpel on the tip of his finger and expertly catches it in the air.

Kaige says, 'which almost always makes things more fun'

LadyAce says, 'if you don't like sleeping to heal, and your favorite method is broken, try some different methods'

Kaige says, 'or at least not as boring as it could have been'

DeSade beeps Lachesis on the nose.

Lachesis smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'so you probly don't want to drag around a healer on your solo run. hire a surgeon for a couple k to come to where you are and heal you, or something'

Boss says, 'yeah... but mages give up a lot to like be mages, and shouldn't really have to run to ingame healing sources or surgeons while they still have mana left'

DeSade says to Kaige, 'make me a couch?'

LadyAce says, '2c mages don't give up all that much relative to 3c, and I think the healing thing we're talking about is 2c'

DeSade says, 'or a hot tub!'

Boss says, 'are there plans for 3c create healing?'

Ruby says, 'bah 2c create was WAY to powerfull when it comes to healing'

LadyAce says, 'I don't know of any new stuff planned for create right now'

Boss says, '3c create is really getting jacked here =P'

LadyAce says, 'your comments are welcome, we're not closed to change'

DeSade says to LadyAce, 'am I totally off my rocker? or years and years ago...wasn't create healing made you a vial?'


Why Use a Hittable?

Ruby says, 'ok 1st I would like to say "good job with balm"'

Ruby says, 'ok now that my nose is brown I can ask my question'

LadyAce says, 'thanks for your support. *bartles and james*'

DeSade giggles at Ruby.

LadyAce says, 'sure!'

DeSade says to LadyAce, 'those guys were awesome'

LadyAce giggles at DeSade.

Ruby says, 'Hittables'

Ruby says, 'I just plane and simple don't understand why they exist'

Ruby says, 'I'm talking about level hittables btw'

LadyAce says, 'well, our basic idea on it is that people should fight things their own level'

DeSade says, 'what in the blue hell is a hittable'

DeSade giggles.

LadyAce says, 'it's a level comparison -- you get a bonus if you are the same level or higher than the thing you're killing'

Kaige says, 'a table that determines if you hit or not'

LadyAce says, 'it's hard to hit things way bigger than you'

DeSade says, 'makes sense to me'

Ruby says, 'My responce is this. If your willing to take a major beating to fight a big mob with lots of risk why shouldn't you be able to do so?'

DeSade knows why that was put in too

LadyAce says, 'there's a realm where we tie your actual ability to how long you've been doing this warrior thing'

DeSade says to Ruby, 'it is to prevent the opposite of that'

Kaige says, 'because not everyone will play it that way.'

Kaige nods her agreement with DeSade.

LadyAce says, 'if you haven't done much fighting (not much experience), you're not as good at fighting other experienced things'

DeSade can give you the example of why it is in

Kaige says, 'allowing someone else to get beat on that big nasty until it's almost dead and you step in and finish it off.'

Kaige says, 'and get all the credit.'

DeSade nods his agreement with Kaige.

DeSade says, 'wither'

DeSade giggles.

DeSade says, 'I got many levels on said that way'

Ruby says to Kaige, 'well to counter that I say this.. chant vina vya ex bigmob'

DeSade says, 'back in the day'

DeSade says, 'just like you all changed stun after I told rufus how I got 35 levels in 3 hours'

DeSade looks around defensively.

Ruby says to Kaige, 'Or perhaps chant meue gam drva ex big mob.. say ok now kick it'

Kaige nods her agreement with Ruby.

Kaige says, 'exactly'

Ruby says, 'so it can be done even with hittables'

Ruby says, 'so I ask again. What is the reason for them'

LadyAce says, 'there is a level where we just chose a set of assumptions. It's an artificial control system, one of several we might have chosen.'

Chunk says, 'geesh did i miss it already?'

DeSade tugs on Kaige's sleeve imploringly.

Kaige says, 'to provide variety and depth to the game and a sense of progression.'

LadyAce says, 'it really functions as one pillar of perhaps five or six that we built the system from'

LadyAce says, 'not really changeable now, we're a level-based advancement mud.'

Kaige says, 'if you could hit everythign the same at every level, it'd be pretty boring.'


More info on Balms?

Chunk says, 'is balm level based as well? my level 35 heals ave 22 hps resting a tick'

LadyAce says, 'we can't give you more info than you see in the help file'

Chunk growls.

LadyAce says, 'be sure you use it *immediately* after you cast'

Chunk says, 'i do'

Chunk says, 'its almost like resting normally'

Chunk sighs loudly.


Imms Doing anything to help PK?

Chunk says, 'is anything being thought of to help as imms to pk?'

Chunk says, 'ive spoken to malia and she has held meetings and said nothing has come of those meetings from players'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we have any initiatives from the imm staff to work with pk'

Chunk says, 'i think the ppl and their posts explain well etc..'

LadyAce says, 'not right now, at any rate.'

Kaige says, 'I was thinking of running another assassins game here sometime, but I want to revamp the proces so we can get through one game in a reasonable amount of time'


Perks for PK Clanhalls?

Chunk says, 'the other pk one was this.. pk clanhalls'

Chunk says, 'can we make it at all possible that pk clan halls have some sort of extra benefit then a normal hall or house?'

Ruby says to Chunk, 'what so ever for?'

Chunk says, 'to get more ppl into pk clans and pk'

Chunk says, 'make pk clans worth something.. maybe shorten the ammount of pk clans available to us'

Ruby says to Chunk, 'I highly doubt that will work'

LadyAce giggles at Ruby.

Chunk says, 'that way we dont have millions of clans of 5-9 but big clans'

Kaige says, 'there's only 10 pk clans now.'

Chunk says, 'kinda sucks that we have a short amount of players but they all in different clans..'

Kaige says, 'nothing preventing people from consolidating and focusing on making pk cool themselves.'

Ruby tried that... it didn't work

Chunk says to Kaige, 'im gunna try to hold a pk meeting but i doubt anything will come of it'

DeSade says to Chunk, 'you will find that most people here are all talk but no action'

Chunk says, 'if malia got a meeting up 2 times.. and failed.. i dont know where i could do better'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Ruby says, 'what we need as pkillers is some rp theme to ban us together'

Chunk says, 'yeah thats another big problem.. i talked with malia and read on boards'

Kaige says, 'they're a hard bunch to move in one direction... kinda like herding tadpoles'

Chunk says, 'they will talk action but wont act'

DeSade says to Kaige, 'need a big freakin net'

Chunk says to Ruby, 'syndicate is trying but cant get any more recruits'

Kaige says to Ruby, 'that's one of the homework assignments from one of the pk chats...'

Chunk says, 'and i can pk here sooooon like 2 days =p'

Kaige says, 'find a reason to have a war with anyone else'

Chunk says, 'so we or atleast i will start a more vigorious rp war with ira'

Chunk says, 'i cant speak for my clanmates because frankly they dont pk much'

Chunk says, 'or arent online when others are..'

Chunk sighs loudly.

Chunk says to Ruby, 'thats the biiig problem.. no real actives..'

Chunk sighs loudly.

Chunk says to Ruby, 'come join my clan =p'


More on Alternate Ports

Ruby says to Kaige, 'on that note. I have a reason. at least if we can make a connection port on 23'

Kaige chuckles politely at Ruby's feeble witticism.

LadyAce says, 'we can't give people telnet connections into the machine'

Ruby NEEDS that port open in order to RP.

LadyAce says, 'we'd have to give you accounts on the machine'

LadyAce says, 'and we can't do that'

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'you can't just have 9999 open and 23 open at the same time?'

Ruby says, 'I'm more worried about the possibility of having the port 23 open'

LadyAce says, 'we're not going to open 23 to other people.'

Chunk says to Ruby, 'whats so special about that?'

Chunk is completely boggled.

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'whats so special about 23?'

LadyAce says, 'there's no way at all. People can connect to other ports and then into the machine'

LadyAce says, '23 is the telnet port'

Ruby says, 'oh...'

LadyAce says, 'if we open that, we open ourselves to security problems, and it's bound to the telnet service'

LadyAce says, 'so connecting to 23 gives you telnet to us. like prompts and directories and stuff'

Ruby says, 'I see now..'

LadyAce nods solemnly.


Greater Create Healing?

Chunk says, 'dunno if yall discussed this or not.. is there a thought of making a greater create healing?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we've discussed it, no. You should feel free to propose it on the discussion board, though'

Kaige says, 'nothing like that in the plans that I know of.'

Chunk says, 'doh'

Chunk says to Kaige, 'why is it my level 35 create really sucks? his ellies are pathetic.. his angel and doppel are the only things that can help him fight'

Chunk scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Kaige says to Chunk, 'how smart is he?'

Chunk says to Kaige, '81 mind'

LadyAce says, 'I think that we'd have to see your results more directly to say if you're seeing something odd or not'

Kaige says to Chunk, 'no clue exactly without lots of looking close at the character and all'

Chunk says, 'is it that much of a difference? i mean he can only really have 80 mind unless i drop his dex to almost 0'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'could be stats, cast levels, your opponents....'

Chunk says, 'or if i switch to a con/mind mage..'

Chunk says to LadyAce, 'wildebeests'

Chunk says, 'level 35 he is'

Chunk says, 'str fighter'

LadyAce says, 'I can't really give you any answers just standing here. Corner a coder and take them on a little trip with you'

Chunk says, 'his biggest charmed ellie i made was 67 hps'

Chunk scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Chunk says, 'and the hardest hit was barely'

Chunk scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Kae says, 'I'm inclined to say that at the moment, str create with 80 mind shouldn't depend on their elementals, but that's based on my observations'

Kae says to Chunk, 'be sure to give Ea feedback'

Chunk nods his agreement with Kae.

LadyAce says, 'you could play with your stats and see if a small boost gives you better results, too'


Possibility of House Guards?

DeSade says, 'what is the thinking on house guards'

LadyAce says, 'we want to do them, we're not anywhere near being able to do them'

Kaige says, 'that it's way out there with pets and other hirelings.'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

DeSade nods solemnly.


Fixed Goldmine Quest?

DeSade says, 'any thought about goldmine quest and how it is still unrealistic?'

Kaige says, 'well I made it so people don't have to log off any more.'

LadyAce nods to herself - she must be getting senile.

DeSade says, 'you did? it is doable when others are online?'

DeSade peers at himself myopically.

Kaige nods her agreement with DeSade.

DeSade says, 'silly me, I haven't tried lately'

Kaige says, 'was part of the changes for summer odyssey'

DeSade nods solemnly.


Even more on Ports

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'more port question'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Ruby.

Ruby says to LadyAce, 'is at physicly possible to have two ports into the mud at the same time?'

Ruby says, 'ie 9999 and maybe like 20 or something other than 23?'

Craven says, '23 is telnet'

LadyAce says, 'it might be possible to do it, theoretically'

Craven says, '21 is ftp'

Kaige says, 'yeah we covered that.'

Craven throws his head back and cackles with insane glee!

LadyAce says, 'but it's a lot easier to just connect to somewhere else and then connect to us'

Craven says, 'fine, make me feel stupid'

Craven sniffs sadly at Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'use a java client etc'

Kaige tickles Craven.

Kaige says, 'I found a better one to put on our website and mudconnector has one too -- where you use them as a proxy'

Craven says, 'whats this port issue'

Kaige says, 'some employers don't like letting people telnet to 4444 4000 8888 and 9999 because it tends to reduce productivity or something'

Kaige giggles.

Craven sniffs sadly.

Craven says, 'really'

Craven says, 'why does ruby care?'

Craven says, 'no offense ruby :)'

Ruby says to Craven, 'btw I care about the port thing because I care about other people here than myself :P'


Doors, Locks & Picking Them

Chunk says, 'i have an idea but i think in order for it to work you would need to make pick locks on doors work a bit more than it does'

Craven says, 'pick lock already works insane on doors, unless you mean non house doors'

Craven laughs at his own folly.

Chunk says, 'idea being if your door is broken via break door or picked via pick locks you have to buy hinges or a new lock for said door..'

LadyAce says, 'ugh, that'd suck'

Craven says, 'might make the repair skill useful instead'

Kaige says, 'it'd really suck for mobs'

Chunk says, 'that may suck but you always talk about mud economy =p'

Kae says, 'I like the repair idea'

Craven says, 'I haven't picked a player house in over a year'

Craven says, 'its already basicly impossible'

Craven says, 'the chances are so low its not worth mentioning'

LadyAce says, 'just get a free shell acct'

Craven says, 'would be nice if you lowered the time needed to retry a door'

Craven says, 'I don't think the chance should be 1% every 10 minutes :P'

LadyAce says, 'feel free to put this stuff in on idea'

Craven says, 'and it seems to me ancient locks shouldn't be as tough as indus locks'

Chunk says, 'yeah something would need to be done for that idea to actually be used more than every blue moon'

Craven says, 'since the tech just wasn't there'

Craven says, 'but then again, I don't use houses cuz they aren't very user friendly...'

Kae says, 'valid point too, that'

Craven says, 'whats a good point?'

Kae says, 'the tech thing'

Craven says, 'oh'

Craven nods solemnly.

Craven says, 'indus seems like the forgotton era these days'

Kae says, 'a modern lock should be harder to pick than one bought in ancient'

Craven says, 'I haven't seen a new indus area in so long'

Craven shakes his head.

LadyAce says, 'yeah, altho the ancients had some pretty neat puzzle locks'

Kae says to Craven, 'well, I was working on one when I got told to clear my desk for Hell :p'

Craven says, 'I mean ancient houses don't have as good of locks, regardless of where bought'

LadyAce says, 'the idea is that you're importing a lock from another area you visit in your travels'

Kae says, 'that sounded sorta obvious to me'


New Areas/Area Updates?

Ruby says to Kae, 'how is that coming btw?'

Craven says, 'I'm not blaming anyone'

Craven says, 'but indus is fairly minimal compared to the others'

Kae says to Ruby, 'not too badly :)'

Craven says, 'lets face it'

Craven says, 'how often do you really spend in indus?'

Craven says, 'most gear is ancient or medevil'

Chunk says, 'not much..'

LadyAce says, 'Is there a question in there? Or a specific suggestion?'

Craven says, 'indus has the savannah, its one saving grace :)'

Craven says, 'I dunno'

Craven says, 'I'm just throwing out ideas'

Kae says, 'I love some of the industrial areas. It's more that industrial doesn't have as many areas, and some of them aren't as recent as to have much action'

Craven says, 'I like to do that'

Craven says, 'well look at wwII or whatever it is'

Craven says, 'whens the last time you honestly did anything there'

Chunk snickers softly.

Craven says, 'people use the quiet road'

Craven says, 'occasionally someone gets binocs'

Craven says, 'thats about it'

Kae says, 'it's high traffic actually, because it includes Casablanca'

Craven says, 'I meant wwi then'

Craven says, 'wraiths area'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Kae says, 'but you're right, I'm camping on Breton's doorstep for the update too'

LadyAce says, 'it's a little small and strung out yet'

Craven says, 'casablanca is a nice area'

Chunk says, 'speaking of updates'

Craven says, 'well wwI was used'

Chunk tugs on LadyAce's sleeve imploringly.

LadyAce says, 'needs some size increasing and updating help'

Craven says, 'but you made privates too hard'

Chunk says, 'when is klien ready? =p'

Ruby says to Craven, 'You forgot one good thing about indus'

Craven says, 'paris was used for 30-40 leveling, but choc made them too hard for the xp'

LadyAce says to Chunk, 'haven't had much time this month. It's not a good time of year for people who work at universities like moi'

Chunk nods solemnly.

Craven says, 'I'd just like to see some more tech like armor and stuff'

Craven says, 'in indus'

Kae gives a tiny TIE panzer a spin.

LadyAce giggles.

Ruby cackles gleefully at Kae - whatever he's going to do to her, glad it's not you!

Kae says to Craven, 'trust me, I'm pestering Breton weekly'

Craven says, 'like army fatigues'

Chunk says, 'and can someone do me a favor and kick matrix a few times to get his butt in gear? =p'

Craven says, 'we have chain mail and all kinds of other stuff'

Craven says, 'we need flak jackets and neat stuff like that'

Craven says, 'crap'

Ruby says, 'Those neet boots that you pump air into to keep your feet from getting cold'

Craven brutally slays the lagmonster.

Kae says, 'area affecting tank shelling!'

Kaige says, 'idea, idea, idea'

Kaige shakes a big bag of ideas.

Craven says, 'I don't idea things'

Craven says, 'I like feedback, and you don't get that from the idea channel'

Kae says to Kaige, 'Breton already beat me to that one'

Kaige says, 'then we can't read your mind.'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

Craven says, 'I like to discuss things'

Craven says, 'fling ideas around!'

LadyAce giggles.

Chunk says, 'we saying it =p'

Craven says, 'giant brainstorming sessions are sweet'

Ruby nods his agreement with Craven.

Craven says, 'throwing your ideas into the void and never hearing about them is shit'

Chunk nods his agreement with Craven.

Craven says, 'but thats just my opinion :)'


Augment Overpowered?

Craven says, 'would be great to see augment toned down at low spirit etc. so forth'

Craven says, 'a 60 spirit augmenter with almost any stat is near invincible blah blah blah :)'

LadyAce says, 'yeah, I think augment is still a bit out of whack'

Ruby growls.

Craven says, 'bit?'

Ruby says, 'augmenters'

Ruby growls.

LadyAce says, 'we're trying not to hamstring lowlevel druids'

Craven says, 'augmenter with a chalice can beat just about anyone with at least 200 mana left'

Chunk nods his agreement with Craven.

Lachesis nods solemnly.

Lachesis waves a rune-covered bag.

LadyAce says, 'maybe we could scale it with level'

Craven says, 'you can have 100 spirit at level 20'

Lachesis waves Suger's chalice.

Chunk says, 'augment makes me mad with 60 spirit'

Craven says, 'I think first of all augment should be an 80 spirit skill'

Chunk nods his agreement with Craven.

Craven says, 'and possibly other detriments as well, but I don't know what'

LadyAce says, 'send in your comments on idea, and we'll take a look at them'

Craven says, 'maybe augments do more healing with mind'

Craven says, 'thus true augmenters still have great augments'

Craven says, 'but the half ones don't'

Craven says, 'I dunno'

Craven says, 'just fustrated me :)'

Chunk says, 'i talked about that on chat the other night and got bashed fast like'

Craven says, 'cuz the new craze are augmenters'

Craven says, 'I know dashiva made one after dashie got his shins kicked in'

LadyAce says, 'well, messing with healing upsets people, understandably'

Craven says, 'I have nothing against true druids'

Craven says, 'but how many do you really know?'

Craven says, 'where as there are lots of full surgeons'

Chunk says, 'about 5'

Craven says, 'compared to augmenters'

Craven says, 'the "battledruid" is the problem'

Craven says, 'not the druid'

Chunk nods his agreement with Craven.

Ruby nods his agreement with Craven.

LadyAce says, 'ok, so any other questions?'

LadyAce smiles happily.

Kae says, 'augmentors are a bit harder for newbies than surgeons too, though - for starters, they need to restock herbs'

Craven says, '60 hp for 35 mana coorilates to about 1500 hp a fight extra'

Kaige says, 'and be able to carry them'

Devi says to LadyAce, 'go feed your husband, don't want him cranky'

Devi giggles.

LadyAce giggles at Devi.

Craven says, 'not to mention things like preserving poultices'

Craven says, 'only feed him if he promises to fix balm!'

Kae says, 'it's darn easy to get a scalpel and ride the xp train in comparison'

Craven says, 'it can't be taht hard to make it work for less then 100 mind!'

Chunk says, 'but a druid dont get augment til what.. 25?'

LadyAce giggles at Craven.

Craven says, 'though tell him I don't blame him completely :)'

Craven says, 'I blame the testers more!'

Craven says, 'they should have noticed such a blatent bug'

Chunk says, 'and at that level solo leveling is cake'

Craven says, 'they probably only tested with 100 mind :P'

LadyAce says, 'thanks for coming gang'

LadyAce gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

LadyAce waves happily.

Kaige waves happily.
