    @Kyraic I'm pretty sure this kind of logic is exactly what got raiding made useless for a while before they made it what it is now.
  • Re: To those who don't RP (but might)...

    Point I think @Cassius is making is, he and Owyn are the types to do that. They both do what they do and accept the consequences of doing them. The problem is when you say "themes blah blah" is that you're trying to force everyone to put their characters in this small niche. It simply doesn't happen that way. Let me use Owyn as an example.

    Owyn is from Antioch. Antioch was a really, really cool place to be. Raiding wasn't around anymore because it was functionally useless to raid (guards were free, etc.) Antioch at the time was the only completely "gates open" city -- open to any and everyone. What did Owyn do? He went around preaching that as the gospel. He worked pretty hard to talk to city leaders and convince them that everyone opening their gates and leaving battlefield business on the battlefield was the best course of action.

    Every place except for Ithaqua adopted this attitude for a time even, although it did take me delivering flowers to Rei while intentionally dying to guards in the process to prove a point. Cue the return of raids, new and improved with objectives. Well, by this time Owyn is still an Antiochian combatant, but he's also now married to Alvetta, Duchess of Kinsarmar. Why didn't Antioch throw him out? Because he killed his wife (: 3) pretty much every day, or she killed him, and then that laughed about it. That's why.

    But wait! Now raids are a thing. Owyn could tell that the world was about to change again. People would close their gates again, etc. to combatants. So with this knowledge combined with the fact that at the time AM was roflstomping EVERYONE into the ground he went magick, and some friends went with him.

    The point of this story is Owyn isn't a zealot -- not for magick or against it or demons either. He's just a guy living his life, as much on his own terms as he possibly can. There is zero roleplay reason for him to care about what mount you have, etc. The world as it was is not as it is. His whole life in Antioch it wasn't 'thematic' either. Antioch were just trying to be the game's bad guys. I like being a bad guy; Owyn pretty much still is a bad guy.

    @Krysaliss side note: If Dregaur did even 1/10th the stuff he did back in the day, people would be raging and up in arms so hard they'd be leaving in droves. You're talking about a dude that would team-gank people and then spend a couple hours methodically rifling through their possessions and stealing all of it.
  • Re: PK and excessive promo items

    Double post, but I love this announce in bug fixes after the uproar about promo items:

    "You can no longer FLY out of ethereal shackles."

    I mean... you and I are the ones who bugged it though. :wink:
  • Re: Classleads: Summer 2k17

    @Naruj Sounds like someone's getting a little bit hurt, friend. Priest is a beginner class; I said nothing about it not being something people should kill with. I learned with it; I killed people with it all the time. Not every idea someone has is a good idea; your idea was a really bad idea. It's that simple.

    EDIT: Oh man, now I  need to go change my profession because someone who doesn't even play anymore, who isn't even relevant to the conversation, just called me out on using a beginner profession. :'(
  • Re: Current Sale

    @Anette Don't just disagree without a shred of ability to back it up. Your knowledge of combat in this game is subpar at best. I would take an unartifacted lowbie with those 2 items and dust you.

    Edit: better yet, I'll lend you all of Owyn's artifacts -- take those two items -- and dust you.
