PostPosted: Sat Jul 24, 2004 2:09 am    Post subject: Plague/Poison/Pry/Steal Updates

Plague

Plague no longer affects regeneration of hp/mana/mv directly.
Plague instead affects the stats which in turn affect your hp
mana and mv. (int, con) It will also weaken you. The plague
will worsen if it is not treated, beginning fairly mild.

Poison

Poison no longer affects regeneration of hp/mana/mv at all.
Instead, a successful poison will damage your opponent and cause
some dramatic harm to him. These changes reverberate through
everything which causes poison - eating, envenom weapons, etc.

Neither of these affects damage upon ticks any more.

Steal

Steal will work if you're hidden, or if your opponent is sleeping.
These are now the only conditions under which you can steal.
Note that a class with detect hidden is immune to the former, so
if you want to steal his items, you will have to knock him out.

Pry

Pry no longer works on awake targets.

Actually, I don't understand the changes the poison and plague either. I didn't think there was a problem with either of these spells. This is a very mystifying set of changes to me.

none of these makes sense. if Im correct in this, poison doesnt have ongoing damage, it only damages once now? poison is supposed damage the target until they die from it or get it cured. I dont see why these shouldve been changed..

if its changed to this why not just call it sickness instead. POISON is meant to kill the target slowly but surely.

see e ant agrees with me. poison is just that, something to wear down the health of some1. Im am definitely not happy with the change. if its for stopping people from waking up as a balance issue, then find some other way to do it. I like the ability to make a surprise attack with a ninja, poison the person then, flee,van,acu,env sword, and attack again. if the person had a cure the first time hed run out the second time to you could wear him down easy..

You're not correct in this. Poison is stronger now, but doesn't last quite as long. The damage is still ongoing, but because of it's shorter span, it's possible to run it out without cure poison. That is as long as you're not still fighting. Get too low and don't cure and you're phuckered.
Just like real people....it takes a whole SHITLOAD of poison to kill someone instantly...you normally have to poison the person over an extended period with substantial doses. Considering the factors of combat, you are only allowed the capability of infecting with as much poison you can in a very short amount of time, and in a combat environment. Results are quite detrimental, painful, and could quite often be fatal. But in this case, a smart person could heal themselves and wait the poison out.
Now could u all start posting in the right damn forum so we don't have to keep post hopping for the same friggin subject? Thank u
