Re: Major Change - Learned, Mysticism, Levels

I think the solution isn't completely to remove the progression from rank 1 of a skill to rank 20, it's to focus more on the levels. Levels would provide a small but noticeable impact on the power of a skill, but skill ranks would provide a larger and more significant one time increase to that skill...

Major Change - Learned, Mysticism, Levels

As Rikis mentioned earlier in this 24 hour cycle, I've got some thoughts on skills and how they scale. Particularly skills that scale with the rank in that skill. Leveling gives about 5 attack power, 5 spell power, and a trivial amount of mana and hp that most people are still happy to get. That is ...

Re: A New Way To Unarmed

As nice as this sounds, I don't like the idea of changing the damage type of the unarmed strikes. I would enjoy vastly more options for shockwave such as necrotic, radiant, and potentially acid, but changing the damage of the strikes themselves I do not like. The reason for this is that there are tw...

Re: RP and gaming

I personally love the idea of an introduce system and think it would add to the community of Asteria rather than subtract from it. I would love for something like this to be added. I also like the idea for a channel filled with the dead... fantastic and ominous. All things I would love to see.

Re: Fast Travel and the Top 10

While I agree that running into people while hunting or just walking from one location to the next is fantastic, something like a two way recall such as transcend doesn't take away from that. I think it would be fantastic for riding to have that addition, as well as people having the ability to have...

Re: Fast Travel and the Top 10

Pets don't really count due to the travel time still involved, neither do I count astral walk in this situation. The recall stones/consumable spells to grant you the one time use of these spells is fantastic and a great idea. I'd love to see something like that added to the game. I enjoy the thought...

Re: Sinshade and Necromancy

Onto Necromancy Deathly Chill - Rank 1 This seems nice, but it's really just a worse version of fireball that is way more commonly resisted. This ability was my sole form of damage before level 60, and it caused me to have to skip the Tundra and other snowy areas because I couldn't reasonably hunt t...
