    Armor should fall under it's own skillset, and greater penalties/bonuses related to movement and protection should be implimented. Armor, like weapons, in reality, are things that can be learned and utilized over time and with training. Classes should still be able to circumvent restrictions by default.

    Small idea - Rogues with no organization should have the fluff option, somehow, of being able to gain titles.

    Small idea - A "General Market", set up somewhere neutral, should be created for the more poor players that can't afford already cutthroat competition for shops, to sell and hawk wares. For a fee/tax

    Small idea - Make Drakir and Hydras as mounts.

    Small idea - Xoran fire breathing should do more damage. Despite appearing fierce and potent....it's actually WOEFULLY underpowered. In fact, it's nearly useless. I should be able to kill vermin with a single strike from fire breathing.

    Small idea - Expand and evolve dreams while sleeping. Especially if in a particular environment.

    @Xavin has a drakir, but it's a custom pet.

    It's supposed to be a fluff skill for fun, not viable in any real way. Even with vermin.

    Okay, one by one!

    Current armor system does take this into account, generalizing that anyone skilled in a class should be trained in that armor. While it would be more verisimilitudinous to make them do so slowly, we kinda handwave it. Sometimes RP loses to mechanics.

    Their Divine Order can do it!

    We're considering a kind of short-term market as a hobby or something, or maybe an area... but the economy as a whole needs to be healthier first. The people who own those expensive shops don't make enough off of them yet.

    Those are very much more like pets. We tend to keep normal, easily accessible mounts as normal things, so as to not devalue people who custom buy things. It's one thing for one person to ride a weregiraffe, it's another for everyone to have four or five in their stables.

    I wouldn't mind making it able to kill rats. It shouldn't be combat viable, lest we have everyone PvPing as Xorani. @Keroc would make the final decision on this.

    Dreams are actually a complicated system based on org membership, environment, level range, etc. There are tons of different ways we can write a dream and make sure it only shows up for certain people. BUT no one sleeps anymore so we never use it.

    No idea how viable this is, but just to throw it out there...

    Three slots for different cshouts, purchasable with credits or whathaveyou. Sometimes your cshout text isn't appropriate for the situation. Exaggerated silly e.g.: Bored and uninterested, Cayn lazily hollers out, "I WILL OBLITERATE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER LOVED, HAVEN LOCKE." Impassioned voice blazing with zealous fervor, Haven roars, "Ok."

    Proposed syntax:
    CSHOUTS SET <1|2|3> <string>
    CSHOUTS SUBMIT <1|2|3> 
    CSHOUTS UNSET brings you back to whatever the normal non-custom shout string is.
    SHOUT <1|2|3> <obnoxious words>
    SHOUT without the number argument default to a preset choice with CSHOUTS DEFAULT 1. An unset default will default to the string saved in slot 1. 

    I acknowledge that this would mean more approval work for team admin, but I'm not sure how else to strike a balance between descriptive versatility and policed text.

    Fun fact I learned the other day from Mjoll and Ayuna:

    If you do PATH TRACK, you don't have to do PATH GO.

    I've used Path Track a few times, but it doesn't use Gallop/Dash/Sprint. At least it doesn't use Gallop(I use horses because I'm still alive).

    @Aeryx

    I'd like your change, but at the moment, my solution to this is that I have PATH GO GALLOP as a hotkey in and of itself, and then a trigger for the line that tells you "you aren't mounted, so we'll walk like normal!" that does:
    PATH STOP
    PATH GO DASH

    so that I'll get there in whichever quickest way is possible with my current capacity!

    Ok done. Any pack/container is fine as long as you're holding it. ARTICALL ALL will pull them out though.

    Wow thanks wanted something like this forever, no more 5000 customization tokens falling out of my pack every 10 minutes.

    I'm not 100% sure if this is an Idea or a Bug, or whatever...but in my recent foray just now into sending mass messages(I had to send 2 because I didnt know there was a limit), it told me about needing to regain 'message balance', which is fine and all, I understand why...but I think it would be a good idea for the game to tell you when you regain message balance. It never did mention I gained it back, I just tried again and it worked.

    It's just normal balance, I think. Will double check
  • IazamatIazamat Member Posts: 274 ✭✭✭✭
    So, I understand if this ends up being a contentious request, but is there any chance REFINING SHACKLE could be moved (or even copied?) to the Hunting skillset and placed low? If you have refining and refining reserves, it would work as it does now, but if you don't, it would take 5+ seconds of balance to shackle. The reason I ask is that the mines were originally meant to be a way for people who didn't want to participate in the PvP portion of ylem to help contribute, as well as newbies. As is, due to crit immunity and how hard they hit, a single eld can chew through people who are sub-100. Without refining, they aren't getting any of the other perks of doing mines (Absorption), so I feel like it'd be a fair tradeoff to make it possible for more people to comfortably do their mines scenario without becoming discouraged.

    The mines are scaled. Newbies should be getting eld spawned roughly equal to what they can deal with. If not we might need to double check things.

    I heretofore remove this "idea" since it was answered below!

    Ah, well then. I didn't know about the threshold amount. I knew that commnand existed, just thought it was more on or off. I stand corrected! Nothing to see here, move along.
