    I.. like bashing.

    When I take a newbie bashing, I take them for five or six levels, show them an area, and let 'em loose.

    I never take a lowbie to endgame areas.

    -

    Rage: mobs that run when you hit them. This is especially terrible for classes that have comboed attacks. A half a dhuriv attack is nothin'. They should run when you enter the room, and stay put once you've started hitting them.

    I agree with Alexina -- I don't think there's any reason to powerbash a truenewb too much because of the learning curve of the game. Personally, though, I don't know how much bashing has to do with immersion; I actually think of bashing as one of the most OOC elements of the game (it's not even something my character would have been especially motivated to do a lot of the time). Most people don't spend a lot of time really getting into descriptions of bashing areas or thinking about their layout or anything like that because they're just in it for the XP, and possibly the "joy" of system-building. Many of those areas aren't a place a player will ever visit again once they've achieved endgame.

    I do think making major geography/lore an integral part of guildreqs is important, but I don't know how well bashing lends itself to that particular goal.

    The ABSURDLY high amounts of fire alarms that keep going off during combat, every time I start to gain ground. I can't be arsed to actually learn Templar to engagelock people. I should probably start on that soonish. I've just always hated venom combat.

    The game told me not to execute that command right now! I was just doing what I was told to!

    @Illidan: Look. I have you on ignore in game for a reason. Coming to forums to insult me and circumvent that ignore is petty and rude. Please stop.

    Raaaugh. Freezing up at RP because I didn't know if I should ignore the apprentice system and do something unconventional or not. Want to buy passing on lycanthrope class such as vampires do. :(

    It honestly isn't much of an issue seeing as we have affliction view, limb damage view, and the discerning a layer of venom has rubbed off your weapon line.

    It certainly is an issue when you're trying to cut down on combat spam.

    Feeling like an utter nub when there's no one there to help me along(read: holding my hand).

    Call me mad, but I like having diverse flavour messages in. It's alright that you don't, and I empathize with people requesting a simple_combat_messages config option, but raging about diversity of combat messages being some sort of abomination that should be stomped out seems pretty silly. Flavour text should not be removed from the game just so you don't have to gag it.

    It -is- an issue because the discerning a layer has rubbed off your weapon thing isn't reliable. It doesn't show which hand the venom came off from (so you might miss with left hand and hit with right hand, but then if you're just triggering off that message it might register the left hand venom) and it has quite a few bugs. It used to be that whenever your opponent hit rebounding it would give that message (I -think- that's been fixed) and there was another bug with it that I can't quite remember right now.

    So we do have to go off the weapon messages, and I am infinitely thankful that the generic slash ones only have 2-3 unique messages. Templars have the hard life.
    Fair point- always going to cause more tracking issues for anyone wielding two weapons, especially if they're identical in design. Seeing how easy it is to track venoms coming on/off for a single weapon user, it might just be preferable to alter the venom line to show which venom has been delivered. I don't see that causing any major issues myself, aside from making affliction trackers slightly easier to code, and Templars' lives easier in particular (seeing as they're the only ones still using dsl/dsk-style attacks).

    edit: The rebounding bug with discernment was fixed a while back, and there are no other unsolved bugs reported on it. If someone should run into any issues, bug it.

    Sentinels suffer from the same issue, bro.

    Sentinels don't use two weapons. You don't have the left/right problems Templars have.

    @Luna, I was refering to venom tracking off discernment. We use double weapons, so if you track venoms that way, you run the risk of being dodged or parried and having your system track the wrong affliction.

    No, it's much much easier for you. Just track which two venoms are on your weapon and in what order, tada you've solved dodge/parry/whatever.

    Templars have to envenom two unique weapons which makes it infinitely harder to track. And then you need multistate triggers to track which hand got dodged (another huge annoyance cause dodging still gives you the generic weapon hit message), to account for both hands if you don't have two unique designed weapons, there are a lot of other problems too.

    @Luna I am like 99% sure there is a bug, because after that changelog went in I was like yay I can use the discern message! Then I found something wrong with it in a few minutes of testing so went back to using weapon messages. I can't quite remember what it is right now...or maybe I'm just crazy.

    And infinite yes to seeing what venom rubbed off (if I can find whatever the bug is that I thought I found and get that fixed too...). That solves dodge AND multi-weapon users' dilemmas. Yes yes yes. YES!!!!!!!!!! Even just having something like "you discern a layer of venom has rubbed off the weapon in your left hand" would go a long way.

    I never said any of that.

    Don't know why you're flagging my rage as trollery @Arbre. It's a legitimate rage. If someone came onto your job that had no idea what they were talking about, and had the nerve to tell you how to and how not to do your job, wouldn't you be pissed off?
