  • Re: New Engineer Class

     I would hate that because it ignores the real issue, which is that newbies aren't going to want to play a class that costs all their gold. Nor are older players, really. That's part of why I won't buy the class.

    It is low hanging fruit though, so I expect it by Monday.

    Alright! Back with more questions. 

    1) How much resistance does a 10% increase in armour give? If I wanted to analyse surcoat vs artifact armour, what're the numbers on that?

    2) I'm grinding for Aspect right now and the combatant in me is itching to find out what the pvp scene is like. How do pvp interactions normally go down? How often do these opportunities present themselves?

    3) How important is pve to the pvp scene? Is it worth it to invest in crit pendants to maintain a combat advantage or an objective advantage?

    4) How do you know what attacks your KILL command is executing? I seem to be hitting twice with my shield and shouting, but combos are supposed to be sword/shield/shout..
    1) RESISTS as a command should help. Before you do any work, just buy the surcoat, artifact armor can come waaaaay later. I think artifact armor is luxury/waste.

    2) PvP interactions are through multiple 'Vegas clause' setups, so that nobody can get griefed later... usually..
    a. Champion - HELP CHAMPIONS.. it's a duel/world PvP/1v1-centric system in theory. You can still get teamed though, cuz it ain't called a Duel-for-All, son.
    b. Shardfalls - HELP SHARDS .. truth be told, nobody goes to these anymore because nobody needs shards because nobody PKs. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    c. Arena .. self explained
    d. Shrine Wars - HELP RELICS, HELP SECTS .. with entities around, maybe somebody will love theirs enough (or hate all of them, @Owyn ) to slog through the triple Aegis bs-fest that is shrines.
    e. Raids - HELP RAIDS .. we do a 'sandboxy' PvP thing to replace normal raiding, which I personally disagree with, so I will refrain from further commentary.

    3) You should have Aspect for your max HP/max MP. Crit rate has no real bearing on real PvP.. you can't crit player loyals or city loyals. Aspect powers are nice, but I personally find them non-essential.. I make due without any permanent ones, for example. :)

    4) Shield Attacks will hit twice if they are used as the first attack in a combo, in lieu of using a sword attack. KILL is calculated for best DPS, so just let it do its thing.

    After a brief review, the single man judge panel has decided to give this duel 4 out of 5 "Mm"s.

    This burly man stands roughly ten feet in height, his body lined with bulging muscles. The only
    clothing he has on is a pair of ripped and tattered pants, clearly not meant for a man of his size. 
    His hairy arms are as thick as tree trunks, and his massive head the size of a great boulder. A 
    singluar eye rests in the centre of his head, just above his rotund nose and fat lips. Only a few 
    teeth protrude from his mouth, each one sharpened to a point, allowing him to rip his enemies to 
    shred with a single bite.
    The Cyclops almost glows with nearly god-like power.
    It weighs about 375 pounds.
    It is loyal to Sarrius.
    You see nothing in it.

    This rather oddly shaped man is no more than seven feet tall. Rather than having a neck and a head,
    this creature's face is imbedded into his chest, forcing him to turn his whole body to take full 
    stock of the room. Willowy arms and legs protect the face if any danger comes to him, however, the 
    only clothing he is able to wear is a fine pair of pants that protect his legs. Etched into his 
    flesh along the back are several intricate designs, showing his alligence to the Cyclops.
    A headless blemmyes has an air of extreme strength.
    It weighs about 187 pounds.
    It is loyal to the Cyclops.
    You see nothing in it.
    
    As well, within Cyclops area, the malus is -25% of maxMana.
