Re: Stats for Orc Scout

Low WIL surely is a weakness, but stats like DEX, PER, CON, STR are simply more important for scout, and you therefore have very little space for improving your WIL. Many scouts took the path with very low WIL and were successful with various styles of playing. You just need to keep in mind, that yo...

Re: Ask anything, here!

so in the newbie class guide here it says that for a pure thief, it is better to be a man or to get as close to 101 % because ob/hp/mp regen will be greater with man and you keep superb status of skills. There are basically 3 good choices for whitie thief: Hobbit Pros : racial sneak bonus (more tha...

Re: Powtty and Multiple keybindings

The difference between powtty and powwow that is relevant to this is that powtty contains terminal emulator (putty), while powwow does not (powwow is usually run from some terminal emulator such as xterm). To make keys like alt+keypad bindable, you first need to configure your terminal emulator to s...

Re: OB, def and damage

Maxed base CON indeed means bit more hps, because of higher endurance %. This difference scales with level. No idea how big this difference is though, but I can imagine at really high levels it's tens of hps. On my warriors I tend to prefer STR over CON, with the exception of my beorning.

Re: OB, def and damage

It's all speculations, but I believe Kushnak is right and the damage of trolls is affected more by racial bonus than by bonus from high STR. In this regard, I also believe zaugurz orcs have higher racial damage bonus than tarknarb orcs. But if you have some study where you compared let's say man's a...

Re: OB, def and damage

How much does a character's str affect melee damage? From what I have gathered ob is what affects damage and not strength. Each strength only adds like 1 ob, yes? Not completely sure if STR affects damage directly (other than through the tiny ob bonus you described), but if it does, it will probabl...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

Most of the lvl100 chars are whities... Oh really? If so, then I've missed it. :-) Out of head I can name 5 darkies and 3 whities. The mostly xper type suits only for Staub from them all (I may have forgot on some xper though... :-)). The other two whities are probably 50%/50% as you are guessing y...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

The recent influx of lvl100 chars doesn't really have that much to do with easy pk targets. Two other main factors have played a far larger role in this: 1. All these players have played the game for years and years, they've played those same chars for years. Eventually you'll reach lvl100 like tha...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

Just like it is with evil in world in general, just so it is with mobdeath penalties. They are here to stimulate progress in your playing skills. Without them, players wouldn't give a damn about mobdying, so they would not improve their skills that help avoid them (at least not in such a high extent...

Re: Should I just find another MUD?

The mobdeath penalties are harsh only at really high levels, especially considering the high level players tend to be very experienced, and thus mobdie almost always because of link problems. But of course there are exceptions. :-) However I admit that even if lowbie mobdies, it can still be discour...

Re: PowTTY actions / aliases for locate, teleport, portal

What makes the client slower are actions, substitutions and highlights that require the client to thoroughly examine each line that comes from the MUD. Some actions/etc. can be written more or less optimally, to minimize the overhead. Next candidate is of course actions/etc. that perform complex cal...

Re: Bn thieves

It is broken for combat. In past a thief had 2 main weapons in combat: defense and sneak . Defense was nerfed long time ago by Frór (even superb defense means nothing vs parry split) and sneak was nerfed recently with nosneak feature (truth is sneak was kinda overpowered as it was). I vote for reins...

Re: Powwow Questions

As Kalev pointed out, this is not problem of powwow but of terminal you are using. All you need is to use terminal which lets you configure escape sequences for various keys and key combinations. In Linux one such configurable terminal is xterm (which is configured through xrdb). I don't really know...

Re: Quick questions

WIS affects the success rate of mixing. Other than that it's probably not race dependant.
