  1. Go Take A Nap Elder

    i remember having to use a magical weapon for werewolf npc and ghouls. but never for skeletons and certainly not decaying skeletons

    I suppose they will have to add a level condition to it to fix noobie spawn points

    The upper tier Gloomingdeep weapons are magical. (Bronze = no, Iron = no, Gloomingdeep Kobold = yes).

    I think the weapon from the noob armor quests in home towns is magic as well.

    Works great, except TLP don't get gloomingdeep until GoD =)

  4. Go Take A Nap Elder

    most TLP starts dont have this noob armor quests and any available quests are not easily done at lvl 1. Avoiding decaying skeletons would be work around but they were some of the best to kill at those lvls/

    At no point did they say they were shortening the next expansion, they have only indicated they are lengthening the current one.

    Not to mention selling Bonechips isn't a bad business early.

    Apparently from the screenshot, yeah.

    This honestly shouldn't push with the patch unless another one is going to fix it before the next TLPs launch, a lot of the starter NPCs in Kunark are Skeletons and a lot of players are going to make melee in Kunark with the launch of Vaniki and this is going to turn into a massive amount of crying if its live.

    Yes. So lvl 1 skellies in paineel can't be hit by brand new players who won't have magical weapons.

    Man, it was fun doing TOL raids for a month where we could headshoot and assassinate the AkHevan trash mobs and make the raids somewhat bearable in length.
    I assume those mobs are going to have their HP totals reduced now to compensate? nope?

    Seems like they need an extra statement where anything under level 7 doesn't require magic. That keeps stuff like ghouls and willowisps but not newbie mobs.

    Yippy Skippy: "- Necromancer - Chaotic Power X (used by Proclamation for Blood) now has no maximum level cap on its effectiveness and is slightly more powerful."

    RE:

    - Altered the statistics on swarm pets summoned by Vicious Rabbit, Flute of the Dead, Burned Rabbit Foot, Vander's Bane, Rune of Tallon (both items), Spiked Scale Whip, and Invested Spiked Scale Whip. These changes reduce the health and DPS of these swarm pets.

    Why?

    It's not like they has all that many HP to start with, much less a notable level of DPS!

    Again, why?

    It would be greatly appreciated if the Dev team could communicate their intentions on things like this.

    During Terror of Luclin beta, I noticed that all specialization skills had been increased to be equal. I asked in the beta forum what was the intention of Darkpaw. I received no response.

    So, when it went live, I've assumed since then that the intention was to get rid of the idea that you had to pick specialization skills, with everyone granted them all equally. This did not seem a bad idea, as I assume most players really have no idea how it works and what to choose.

    Now, four or more months later, with, again, no communication, we get this patch note. So, how long will this be before it is changed again. Darkpaw, no one but you (and I hope you do) has any idea what you want to do with specialization skills. We have no idea if this will be changed again in a few months. We have no idea what you want with specialization skills.

    While you’re tinkering with attentive spirit for shaman can you move it to visionaries unity. It fits all the requirements and we only have one spell there right now as is

    Didn't see mention of the removal of "Stream Item Textures" from the Advanced Display Options window.

    It depends on who was using them.

    Considering we're constantly told things can't be done because there's no enough time, y'all sure choose the weirdest things to spend time on. It's like the house is burning around you and you're like "I think I'm gonna go dust under the sofa."
