    I hate to start this conversation, but I actually worry about the ramifications of allowing Teradrim to sand slice at a distance faster since sandstorm recovers at a faster rate with that artifact and acts as Mind Strip save that it is susceptible to shield (it will strip it). It's already a very effective counter to sit in a leylined room with interference to block out spirit long-distance summon effects while the Teradrim sand slices at a distance, thus leaving spirit with no option but to charge in and usually die since, if we generally hold the leyline, we've got effects down and thus hold the advantage.

    *flail* I bought a bunch of racks and the shelf kit but I still have 4 hours left on 4 chocolates so I can't play with them yet *flop*

    For the changes to the dagger, do we need to set it at a linked shrine or will it just automatically count as a linked offering?

    The age thing...that's gonna be interesting to see play out. How's that gonna work with bloodlining restrictions?

    Just a quick update since we just had this discussion with the liaisons - the sandstorm artifact was a bit of an oversight (it was conceptualized before some adjustments to the class in the last few months), so we will be changing the effect. We've removed it from the shop for now, and you can expect a changelog with the new function sometime in the next day or so.

    If you already own a dagger, you'll need to reattune it to a linked shrine for it to work - even if it's already attuned to a linked shrine.

    Does the mark of growth of growth paired with nature consumption means insta-costless-5 energy for any Shaman who can pop in and out a room over and over? Is that an oversight?

    What does the output for the shop directory thing look like? Does it compare all the cities? Can you do individual cities?

    Looks that way on paper. That would also be pretty bad.

    Good catch! We neglected to mention that consumption will now have a short internal cooldown to prevent that situation. It won't affect the current functionality of greenfoot/consumption in any way, since the cooldown will match the delay on entry.

    You can search by city, or by all.

    I deserve a prize so I can afford some of these new goodies :3

    Do you have to own the enchant racks to enchant them?

    I'm excited about this. It've been waiting a long time for Teradrim class artifacts.

    You raise a shard of the Pillars high before your golem, striking it downward
    into the soulless creature's skull with devastating force. Crackling arcs of
    umber light erupt from the shard as the golem stands, its eyes alight with
    untold power.

    That's what happens when you give the shard to your golem. Pretty neat. I am disappointed that they removed the bronze torc that had enhanced_sandstorm on it however. Hopefully they'll re-release that soon.

    Already planning on buying the carpentry kit artifact, but it'll have to wait until I get home. I always love crafting/shopkeeping artis. >_> The venom milking one is kiind of iffy for the price. Don't get me wrong, milking is a pain in the but, but 300cr still seems a bit much for a non-combat convenience thing.

    Man, directory - ya'll forgers be selling at a loss, man.

    Does goldtouch work on Krisiina and such?
    image
  • MephistolesMephistoles Member Posts: 238 ✭✭✭✭
    They said it doesn't work on critical immune or loyal mobs, and since Krisiina is neither loyal nor immune to crits I'd assume it would work on her, but not on say, the Creature in Tiyen.

    I'll probably be changing prices quite a bit once I pick that arti up. I kinda just do guesswork, atm, since when I ask Toz when it costs him, he always just grunts. Probably out of fear that I'll ask for more stuff made. :(

    Giving everyone selling enchantments the stinkeye about now for about the same thing. Some of those enchantments -have- to be at a loss, or just barely scraping a profit.

    It's a tiny profit, if you're looking at my shop. I used to sell stuff for more, but the prices tanked a lot lately (ie when it became easier to do so everyone started doing it), so I lowered mine to match. :( We should all make an evil magician's pact to raise prices...

    As an old person, I don't like the age artifact. Someone's age tells you which period of Aetolia they started in and which ones they have played through. It'll distort that kind of thing badly to conclude that someone's age is irrelevant.

    @Oleis and @Razmael you should release an 'albedos disguise gem' with your next round of artifact updates. It'll sell well.
