    Barely able to maintain his balance, Ishin drunkenly weaves between $Target's flailing limbs and makes a chomp at them. It takes a few tries, but finally he sinks his teeth into $target's flesh.

    @Riluo I spoke with @Razmael today about shifting bloodborn styles over to scythe, and it should happen sometime in the near future. At this point I'm waiting on the code to be changed so I can plug all of the rewritten messages in. As for carnifex styles, I'm not certain what can or will be done about those.

    @Obyn Any updates on this by chance.

    It's one of those things I keep forgetting and hitting myself for. Wonderful @Obyn put all the messages together for me and made my life much easier. I just have to go in there and make the (potentially frustrating) code changes. If I haven't posted SOMETHING by Monday evening, just feel free to message the crap out of me.

    Hello! Thought I'd contribute the style I just learned: Lazy Templar.

    You have unlocked the following techniques in lazy style:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Templar (weapon attacks)
    1P: Out of breath, you fumble (weapon) just before you can strike Varian with it, dropping it on His
    foot.
    3p: Out of breath, Isande fumbles (weapon) just before she can strike Varian with it, dropping it on
    His foot.

    I should probably just sheath that weapon before I hurt myself..
    Edit: I'm also curious if anyone is willing to trade Elegant or Warcry for this Leaping I have..

    I have found that Elegant tends to have awesome messages, though themed ones like Bedrock for Teradrim and Telekinetic for Monk are pretty sweet too.

    List o' favorites = Elegant, Telekinetic, Bombastic, Phasic

    @razmael @Oleis was hoping you could please fix the Blades style scroll to function like other scrolls for Rituos/Bloodborn so that we can use it with frenzy.

    Rituos (scythe)
    1P: You draw (weapon) through Varian, allowing the blade to drink upon His blood.

    As all other scrolls function correctly except this one which is not to happy!!!

    3p: Cackling madly, Riluo lunges forward and cuts into Varian with (weapon), tearing His flesh to bloody ribbons while in the throes of crazed bloodlust.

    I'm afraid you're mistaken at what happened. When I released the changes that absorbed Bloodborn into Praenomen, I made sure that everyone with a bloodborn style scroll had both a Rituos and a Praenomen scroll in each. It was meant to ensure that nobody felt cheated if they didn't want to stick to scythe bashing. Now that we're past that conversion, it's necessary to learn each style like you would have in the past.

    Fair enough but it was not mentioned to anyone :( So if I am rituos right now and I want to use it for frenzy, I need to purchase a new one and activate it as Praenomen to use it in rituos?

    Abhorash says, "Ve'kahi has proved that even bastards can earn their place."

  • OleisOleis Producer Emeritus Member, Administrator, Immortal Posts: 1,393 admin
    Yes. That's correct. Praenomen = frenzy. Rituos = scythe. It's like how monks have separate punch and kick.

    For reference, the announce post:

    ANNOUNCE NEWS #2362 Date: 1/23/2015 at 18:07 From: Oleis, the Infused To : Everyone Subj: Rituos Praenomen Styles After significant (and regrettable) delay, Rituos Praenomen now have styles specifically for their scythe attacks! Every previously-Bloodborn style now has a scythe-centric message for you to enjoy. I'd hate for you to miss out on your old frenzy fun, though, so I've given anyone who owns a Rituos style the corresponding Praenomen (Frenzy) style. Enjoy!

    @Lait: There is a much larger list of styles than the ones you have. Here are a few of the rare ones I have:

    This kind of scroll can teach the following techniques in Gourmandic style:
    Ascendril (staffcast),

    This kind of scroll can teach the following techniques in Spooky style:
    Ascendril (staffcast),

    This kind of scroll can teach the following techniques in Iosian style:
    Sciomancer (staffcast),


    I don't know what any of the styles actually look like, because I haven't learned any of them, but there is a large list of styles to choose from.
