    WHEN you make changes you'll announce it officially in this thread (or an official patch thread) or the announcements tab on discord right? This won't be some Andrew mentioning eye rot and pungent changes offhandedly in some random thread bullshit again right?

    They thought I was joking about specing indestructible. They said it couldn’t be done.


    They were so very, very wrong.

    I see what you did there, and I liked it. Actually got into a few drunken drunken brawls with a couple other booze hounds the other night, myself was about 4 beers deep after a half a quart of Wild Turkey 101 besides, and the legend dr34d0g was the one of the only ones sober I think. He is subbed back, and ready to dominate. Just getting his legs under him before Combat Changes.

    PSA: There is no such thing as a casual cigarette.

    All kidding aside cool to see these changes actually moved onto the test server. Glad to see players like Dread and others coming back to check it out.

    Not unless you mistakenly continue to kill until you're -1000

    There are times when killing multiple blues can happen. Most notably at sieges that take place in lawful tiles because you're not at war with everyone (even in the enemy alliance). It's a tough condition to set on people when these issues still persist.
    --- Post updated ---
    I would also like to add that it will extremely demoralise returning players who are -1000 from before the days being blue was mandatory. Many of these players hated the prospect of farming a profitable spawn for 3 hours to go blue and I'm sure not everyone knows about the good blue dungeon and could be looking at an even longer grind. Now you are expecting them to wait however long to access the billboard? All the while being denied of any red benefit. This would be less of a problem with billboards in player cities.

    If you implement this change you should consider an alignment reset system of some sort. Either through customer support or an ingame mechanic (cash shop or ingame).

    Have fun doing that whilst every blue hunts you down.

    I guess reds are suppose to bend over and take it, if they ever wanna "repent"


    Still don't understand why you don't have a no timelimit high fee on praying.

    Pay 200k > go from -1000 to 0. Won't be worth it to grief then.

    How long will i take to go from -1000 to +1000 if you do not kill a blue player?

    When will PVE buffs be implemented, seeing as buff staffs are virtually worthless with this patch?

    If I can buff with +90 spell haste modifier now, how does that compare to +50% base casting speed?

    Can you still gain any attributes from sprinting, swimming, riding or jumping?

    Is jewelry receiving a +25% boost?

    Cobra staffs, a top damage staff, will do just as much damage as before right? (minus the +25% boost to armor)

    Im just imagining a mage with a black bolt raying a full infernal Fengor for 15 damage in the back with this change.

    I went indestructible today for science and pvp purposes. Entertaining to say the least. In my FP set, I have 30 fire protection with sword out. SUP?
    --- Post updated ---
    What kind of time frame would it be to go from say -1000 to 0?

    Since reds can only bind in chaos cities, player cities, or at chaos stones (had to mention it) you can just stay in lawless areas for a little bit and if blues come you have free reign to attack and kill them.

    how exactly do I get the PTS up?

    Also a dev should start streaming and doing duels and showing off the changes on twitch so that more people can see it and give more input.
