Re: Ask anything, here!

I assume you want to change your alignment to better, first of all. But still, giving good advice about what to target when you're that low level is difficult. On a higher level any kind of undeads (ghosts, shadows, etc), orcs and trolls would be the good targets, but under level 5... well, farm-ani...

Re: Death Of MUME?

As far as I know the lag-problems are not caused by the server. Rather, the problem is with the connection. The internet connection of the place where the server is located is just not as stable as we'd like it to be. And unfortunately there do not seem to be viable alternative options available, wh...

Re: Death Of MUME?

I do not have a good answer to the server-thing since I'm not very up to date in those matters. I understand that it is right now in Switzerland under Manwe's control simply because there's no better option right now. However, my information could be out of date. But! Regarding the matter of whether...

Ask anything, here!

In this thread you can ask about anything that you have been unable to find an answer to. No matter how small or insignificant, if you need someone more experienced to explain you something, say so here.

Basic Class Guides

This thread includes the basic introductory Guides to all the main four classes of the Good Side of the War. In the game these are accessible on the Class Boards, but since these can be hard to find for a newcomer, I have also copied them into this thread.

Hello everybody! This forum is specifically for all the newcomers who might be struggling with one or another aspect of the game and need advise on how to proceed. Nothing is too minor or too silly to ask. We've all once been new and inexperienced, so don't be shy and make a topic about what's been ...

Re: Newbie Scout Questions

1. Endurance you can add more to later on. Once you've maxxed your scout-skills and you can see what the effect on their percentages really is. Then it's a balancing question, how much does another prac in endurance really give me and how much do my scout skills drop as a result? Parry - same here. ...

Hi! You might want to visit http://www.elvenrunes.com instead for such discussions though. That place tends to be the most active mume fan forum these days.

Re: Updating the wiki-wiki-MUME-wiki

I don't know the exact line between ok and not-ok, but generally guidelines about how to do different quests or smobs appear very common online. The only thing the Powers That Be have been very crumpy about are maps with secret exits shown on them. So, I mean, if instructions for how to do Giant's q...

Re: Any oldtimers still here?

Hmm.... that's an interesting way of looking at it. In normal circumstances I'd argue that any kind of trophy decay would cause an even bigger divide between the new and the old, since suddenly those lvl60+s would be getting full exp for Old Fornost or Old Forest again! But making it depend on xp-lo...

Re: Any oldtimers still here?

I'm not around any more. I'm just stopping by to see if the game is still being updated. (I'm not likely to play again unless someone changes the trophy / xp system . [Or gives me C access so that I can do it myself.]) Elaborate? ;) I'm not happy with the persistent xp-inflation either (which in my...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

Most of the lvl100 chars are whities... and, Staub? Ypsilon is probably a 50/50 case. I think you're somewhat underestimating the effect the expanding variation of mobs has had on level-gaining. But we're both really just guessing, only the A+ could probably come up with actual statistical knowledge...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

Without this guarantee, we would have many clueless high level players, which in turn would affect other parts of the game including PK (much more XP would then come from PKing clueless targets and therefore XP on mobs would become completely obsolote for high levels - it is not far from this state...
