I'm definitely on board with Owyn with this. these new items really seem like game breakers for pvp, just from looking at them. I haven't even done the testing Owyn probably has and can look at these items and tell this. I really don't like the way this is going where we'll have super tanks that never die, and squishy newbs that will die endlessly. I'm all for new, fun stuff but these earrings, and tomes seem a bit over the top.Owyn said:@Theophilus @Jeremy Saunders @Mathiaus, I'm genuinely shocked. I don't want to come off as overly aggressive on this issue, but I honestly feel like recent artifacts and promos are going to kill the game. Just because no one is using them correctly doesn't mean they can't be.
I haven't done this yet, on purpose. But seriously, between the aquamarine earrings and the bronze shield I would wager that I could kill most of, if not all of, the top pkers in this game with autocuring off.
It doesn't say anything about my skill or anyone else's lack of skill. It says everything about just how powerful these items are -- these two in particular frankly shouldn't exist. I feel like they're going to be come (and maybe are intended to) must have items for competitive pk. As Mathiaus already pointed out, those of us invested have already invested quite a bit, and that ceiling is only getting higher. It's not good for new pker's trying to get into the game.
For instance, if I asked @Gjarrus for 5 spars -- even if I won one of those with autocuring off -- it would speak volumes. And not in a good way, at all.
I'm more than willing to accept challenges to this and post logs to the forums on the condition that these concerns be taken seriously. Otherwise, I mean... hey. I'll just cheese it til you nerf it. Or get rid of it.
