Re: Headbutt passive proc

No. It's not just you. I think the way headbutt procs needs to be looked at. It's really the only advantage of getting this skill. Maybe if it was changed to passively proc following any number of hits in a combo?

Re: What would you like to see?

An event that ends in the destruction of every area except Shadgard, Corvus, and maybe Mistral... and then rolls us back, mechanics wise, to the good old days before everything got nerfed to the point of frustration. Or maybe a time travel event to roll the game back to a couple years ago?!? I say t...

Re: Open Discussion - Improving the Clok Experience

I came back on after about a year the other day and seriously thought the game was dead... nice to visit but since there doesn't seem to be much activity, GM or player, I'm not very motivated to keep logging back in. Just my take here...

Re: Wyrvardn Abilities

This brings up another more global issue, actually. For any type of attack, there should be a countermeasure one can employee (whether it is available to a particular guild or not). These are usually in the form of skill checks (with a defensive skill that can be trained): Melee vs. Dodge/Block/Parr...

Re: About heavy armor, and roundtime

I personally enjoy a little bit of delay. Whenever I use the assassinate command, that second before I see someone drop is pretty exciting.

Re: Discussion on how we do what we do.

I like guild tasks, because they give guild members the feeling that they can actually do something specifically for their guild, and it helps give them a feel for what kind of thing guild members are expected to do. Coding tasks can be a real pain in the backside, though. I suppose that makes sens...

Re: Discussion on how we do what we do.

After writing all that, I was thinking of asking if it would be possible to incorporate tasks that lend aid to people. Small hamlets, cities and such. Based upon our skill capabilities. Or would that be more along the lines for other things, such as personal RP IG and what avenues can be opened up ...

Re: Guild Store

Just bumping this again as a reminder about guild store items.

If you need some help with design/descriptions on any of the items yo...

Re: On Departing

Due to the inherently OOC nature of departing, and the fact that it is still presumed that some entity saved you from death in some form or another, it no longer possible to instantly depart when you die. There is now a five minute window from the time of death where you will be unable to depart. I...

Re: Dodge Gains

If you're in tactic offense, you will no longer get dodge gains. I believe that happened while you were out. It's possible that you're still getting very minor gains from tumble as I think that it still works in tactics offense (but seems to be off the normal challenge roll). I haven't noticed this ...

Re: ability idea pc monks in Infirmary

So what you're asking for is an unlimited source of skill gain?

EDIT: I say this because it was originally this way back when I was a monk and the skill gain was insane. Because of this, it was limited pretty quickly.

Re: Rasui's Cryosorcerous Disc Bug ID: 12515

Is the left hand what is always directing the shield? I see this as more quickly mobilizing the shield at whatever the point of impact is. Perhaps the location that takes damage would be more random depending on where the shield is materialized?

Re: Missing VS Dodging

What I've always found odd is marksmanship skill adding to your projectile dodge roll. Since marksmanship is basically learning how to hold really still and be steady, it doesn't seem like it equates to getting out of the way. As you've implied, a knowledge of projectiles and the way they move would...

Re: Missing VS Dodging

Dodging projectiles isn't too difficult, especially if you can anticipate when the trigger will be pulled or the arrow released. Seriously, try firing at a moving target. It's not that easy to hit at range. Besides, no one stands still in combat (hopefully).

Making spear head required only moments and no metal to start... however the training time and resources that went into his character development were far more extensive. Makkah, care to comment?

Can tumble be disabled with severe wounds to the chest, abdomen, back, arms, or legs? I feel like all of these would be necessary for any tumbling.
