I think we should think a bit more outside the box instead of trying to get UOR stuff to work so hard with instahit. How about we try something a little different, something that might fit better without clashing too much.

I'm proposing that we add in modified versions of both chivalry and necromancy, without the incompatible parts of AOS like spell channeling.

1. Rebalance both of these to ensure compatability
2. Focus as a second skill for chivalry. Acting as an alternative meditation based on dex instead of intelligence. Both Focus and Chivalry can possible act as defensive wrestling if required, but this may not be set in stone. It depends on how fast the cast speeds will be, but they should require open hands IMO. Also to prevent abuse by other med templates taking advantage of possibility additional mana from focus, perhaps the med rate shift based on focus should both override meditation if it's present, and also be based on both chivalry and focus, so it requires both skills.
3. Specific measures to ensure chivalry is used by dex templates but still use mana as a resource. One idea could be to have lower mana costs for chivalry spells directly based on dexterity. This would allow int templates to still technically use chivalry, but it would be much more inefficient to do so.
4. Spirit speak to act as evaluating intelligence for necromancy spells. Also ties in as an alternative summoner class based on the undead raising spells etc.

I think this might go a long way to bring about additional template diversity instead of trying to justify stun and nox mages at this point. I feel like this stuff would be alot easier to balance in comparison. As long as it's not a carbon copy of AOS, which I think with my three points it will be different enough, people used to "old school" UO shouldn't be automatically turning away. This could very well establish a new pure mage meta depending on how necro is rebalanced as well as giving dexxers a different path to follow.

EDIT: some ideas for rebalancing
The bless effect could possibly be replaced by an effect to cure strangle (NICE ONE SURGE) and also possibly the chivalry cure or a different spell to get rid of it as well FORGET THIS I FORGOT CHIVALRY COULD ALREADY DO THIS
Strangle when cured will still tick atleast once after it is cured, or possibly half of the total tick damage as one tick after the cure, so it's still a threat.

Luthius, as your current focus seems to be on making more 'UOR' type templates viable, I thought I'd post some suggestions here on top of what I sent you in Discord.

Anatomy: Stun-punch. Make this have a 2-3 second duration, and need to be toggled on by a player, so they need to time it as part of a combo. Ideally it would have a mana (or stam?) cost as well, and a cooldown. 

Poisoning: Give poisoners cheaper poison fields, half mana cost, perhaps. I also liked Jaedan's suggestion where Meteor Swarm could have its damage increased by having points invested in the poisoning skill. 

Spellweaving: Increase unresisted spell damage by x amount (I have no idea how much)

Focus: Increased meditation rates (Again, I have no idea how much would be suitable)

There's four skills that would all work in different combinations with each other, in addition to other skills as they stand, such as SS or Scribe. Anatomy and Spellweaving sounds interesting for double spell damage increase when stunned. 

Some other ideas:

Dexxers:

Give them toggled special moves for mana or stam costs. Require 80+ skill in all of wepskill/tact/anat/heal to prevent mages using them. 

The ones I suggest are: 

  • Mortal Strike - target is unable to heal or be healed for x seconds (health bar displays as yellow)
  • Armour Ignore - negates target AR value when calculating damage
  • Bleed Attack - Inflict x damage over time, which will disturb spell casting on the target on each tick
  • Paralysing Blow - Paralyse opponent for x amount of time

Paralyse Spell:

I absolutely hate the need to carry around 20 trapped pouches. Just needless crap.

Make paralyse spell duration/success based on caster magery vs target resist. 1 second paralysed per 10.0+ points difference, to a maximum of 6 seconds paralysed. No effect if less than 10.0 points difference.

This would work incredibly well with the Outlands changes to Mana Drain and Mana Vamp where they drop your resist skill. 

Quote:- Resist chance is (20% * (Magic Resist / 100))
- Will not stack with any other castings of Mana Drain or Mana Vampire on target
- Effect will be overridden by Mana Vampire if that is cast on target
- Players may drink a Magic Resist potion of any type to nullify the effects of either Mana Drain or Mana Vampire on themselves

Mana Drain
-Reduces target player's Magic Resist by 10 * (Magery / 100) for 2 minutes
Mana Vamp
Reduces target player's Magic Resist by 20 * (Magery / 100) for 2 minutes

No need for trapped pouches, and resist potions could in effect serve that purpose, they would only increase resist up to a maximum of 100(maybe 80?) vs paralyse, meaning that 0 resist templates would still be viable vs paralyse casts.

Tongue Flag stolen items to prevent sale of stolen goods.
Posted by: coreball - 02-08-2018, 02:25 PM - Forum: Suggestions & Ideas - No Replies

This idea is pretty much a direct ripoff of how the Elder Scrolls game handles stolen items: flag the item with a “stolen” property to prevent it from being sold to normal town shopkeepers. A thief guild master could act as a fence, or perhaps it would lead to the establishment of a player run thieves guild which would deal with the moving of illicit goods. Perhaps even items looted from blue players who were PK’d could be flagged as such, creating black market for ill-gotten items. Obviously players would be free to sell or trade these things amongst each other.

Just my 2 cents on a way to make the eventually ruined economy a little more interesting.

Posted by: Blaise - 02-05-2018, 02:49 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Hello folks, I had this idea earlier while discussing starting intentions for Outlands. I have plans to make a Blacksmith/Miner right out of the gate, along with a Bard/Warrior (one or maybe both).
What I'd like to do here is keep a list of player handles and what their intended craft professions may be, IF they are interested in providing those services to the people of Outlands. In short, if you plan on playing a Scribe right away, or Blacksmith, etc, post your intended professions here and I'll update the OP to keep a public list of who will be in what trade. This could help people decide where to start, should there be an abundance of one or another. It could also help your craft if new players can find you easily to potentially sell you resources or buy your wares before player vendors are up. I'll start it out here using just my handle as character names can't be chosen yet:

Blacksmith:
Blaise
GrizzlysGhost

Carpenter:
GrizzlysGhost

Cook:

Scribe:
AreYouKidden

Tailor:
GrizzlysGhost
Drizzle

Tinker:
Mercury

Please join us online Friday, February 16th at 10pm EST for faction beta testing! 

To take part you will need to be in a guild (you can create your own) and aligned to a faction:

One of the Officers or Guildmaster in the guild needs to go to the Faction Page and click the "Change Guild Faction" button.  You'll get left and right arrows showing which faction to pick (or if you intend to switch from a faction back to neutral, the word "none") and then click the Accept button.
