Huma says, 'cant have everything you want all the time basically'
YieXa says, 'right'

Huma says, 'naw'
YieXa says, 'yeah, he got it'
Huma says, 'all traps have different effects/dmg'

Huma says, 'binding to the room... tripping... poison'

YieXa looks up into the sky and ponders.
YieXa says, 'need to find the poison one then...'
YieXa says, 'and between pure damage items, the cheaper items often do less damage, right?'

Huma says, 'not sure though'
Lorenzo says, 'tet'
Lorenzo says, 'test'
YieXa says, 'and traps don't go off all the time... how is that checked?'
Huma says, 'I imagine there is a chance they wouldnt work'
YieXa says, 'like one mob rushes into the room, sometimes he hits the trap and sometimes he doesn't...'
YieXa nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'also certain player effect like fly would negate some'
YieXa says, 'what is that dependent on? the player's level, or the victim's stats?'
YieXa says, 'ah, ok'
Huma says, 'theres probably a random % that it just wont happen regardless, and then your stats and their stat'
YieXa nods solemnly.
Henslin says, 'So how do we know what can be used to make a trap?'
YieXa says, 'what stat is that dependent on?'
YieXa says, 'no, that's up to us to explore'
Henslin says, 'Oh'
Huma says, 'I dont know honestly :9'
Huma says, 'ask other people who have done it?'
Henslin says, 'So you can have a needle, a bandage, and a piece of paper and you create a trap?'
Henslin rolls over on the floor laughing insanely.
YieXa says, 'the helpfile says one to two items'
YieXa says, 'so it's pre-set by the coders'
Huma says, 'I dont know, you could ask someone who has done them before'
Huma says, 'it is preset'
Henslin nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'theres 6 or 7 differnt kinds'
