Re: PANIC! A rethink...

Even better would be to just do away with this annoying panic completely.

Re: Awareness

Finwë, have you actually seen someone with high awareness save backstabs at a reasonable rate?

Re: Voluntary deletion?

It is particularly annoying when characters who have been scheduled to delete !NOW! survive multiple reboots.

For one-handed weapons, approximately weight in lbs * 3 str is required.

Re: Possible Effects of Reducing Parrysplit

I came up with a possible new formula: The second person to engage reduces effective pb by 20% (not 20 pb), the third by 10% and each beyond that by 5%. With a nominal pb of 120%, someone fighting 2 opponents will then have 96 effective pb (60 today), or 84 against 3 opponents (40 today), or 78 agai...

Re: Game mechanics basically

The funny thing about this is that when Mume VIII came out everyone was of the opinoin that single-class training styles were the way to go now and there was massive complaint that the new system was too limiting in this way. Did you mean to write VII instead of VIII? As far as I remember, the hybr...

Possible Effects of Reducing Parrysplit

A recent thread by Elmir inspired me to ponder what would happen if the parrysplitting effects of fighting multiple opponents was reduced. For instance, if slashed by an arbitrary value of three quarters (a linear modifier to a non-linear system, probably not a very good actual implementation), the ...

Re: Game mechanics basically

I think it would be nice if bashing skill affected bashing speed. I also think it would be nice if weaponskills had a greater impact in melee combat - right now they are the least important factor, except for xping lowbies. A weaponskill at 100% gives 20 ob with an appropriate weapon. 25 levels give...

Re: Travel Points

I once got a TP in a road room inside Fornost (the one nws from the inn, can't remember its name) less than one minute after visiting it before; this was when I was going to rent, agonised after not getting TPs behind a vast number of secret doors in wilderness areas that character had never visited...

Re: New Quests (or quests for new players)

Fëanor complained several years ago about needing some mudlle he couldn't write himself to finish the White Tower stuff.

Personally I don't do any quests as a lowbie (unless I come across the Bree weaponsmith dagger), the time investment would be more profitable if spent on killing slithering snakes.

Re: New Quests (or quests for new players)

Unfortunately, not many quests are particularly rewarding. The ones that do come with a nice reward usually require a bit of character power or items that do not load very often, which unfortunately is necessary for balancing reasons. Herblore quests are particularly unrewarding as most herblores ha...

Re: After reading through a number of guides...

Oh, and awareness below 95% does not seem to do anything at all; at 95+ it gives night vision, which you as a caster can get much cheaper by practicing the spell.

Re: Account Output Oddity for the 36th Character

Er, I guess I should have paid closer attention to the names...
I actually only have 36 characters, and the oddity includes a repetition of my last few characters. This seems to be caused by an upgrade from powwow 1.2.5 to powwow 1.2.13. :oops:
