Re: Damage Immunity Fix Follow Up

There appears to be a script that sometimes fires on certain event server NPCs to give them insane damage resist - over 200-300 resist to different damage types. This makes them almost impossible to kill. I've seen it affect Boggle Crag in Eon and Forgrimmithal in BDL. I suspect it also affects the ...

- At Level 1, Bladesong Style: Type of Feat: Class Specifics: When wielding a longsword or rapier in one hand (and nothing in the other), a bladesinger gains a dodge bonus to Armor Class equal to her class level, up to a maximum of her Intelligence bonus. If the bladesinger wears medium or heavy arm...

Re: Potential plans to change DM reward item spell slots calculation

Doing so makes a lot of sense, and would avoid the current ridiculous situation where people swap characters to populate their items.

Re: Request for Beta Testers

I think the overall effect of the changes on incoming damage are going to be very variable based on your toon's damage immunity, damage resistance, and the weapon type of the NPC. On one hand, you take less damage from NPC EX-damage boosts as the EX-damage boosts now respect immunity On the other, t...

Re: Damage Immunity Fix Coming Sort of Soon..

Sounds good so far! One additional thing I've noted is that the creature items "Forgrimmithal's Hide" and "Consort's Hide" have both: Immunity: Damage Type : Physical Damage 30% Immunity Bonus, and Immunity: Damage Type : Slashing 30% Immunity Bonus These stack to result in a mob...

Re: Damage Immunity Fix Coming Sort of Soon..

Whether the new formula reduces farm XP or not completely depends on the value of X. If we set X = 100 for example, ALL enemies with non-zero total immunity will get an increase in CR value, and those with a zero total get no change. This change then becomes inflationary, with all enemies having equ...

Re: Maybe change the name "EASY" mode to "POWER" mode?

That's kind of the point. fan's suggestion is to simply replace the name "EASY" with "POWER" so that newer players are better informed of the differences in the 2 modes. I was thinking of merging the 2 into a single mode that combines the best of both. Specifically, the faster le...

Re: Maybe change the name "EASY" mode to "POWER" mode?

I think it would not be a bad idea, but would prefer simply getting rid of the option entirely, as EASY/NORMAL doesn't really add to server diversity. There was a thread some time ago about getting rid of EASY mode, but the idea was scrapped due to it being potentially build breaking. In that thread...

Re: Damage Immunity Fix Coming Sort of Soon..

I think enemies with abnormally high immunity are fine as long as this is reflected in their CR and hence XP/GP/item rewards. Currently we have the sword orcs in Thultanthar being much more resistant to damage and harder to kill than the monk orcs, yet offering similar XP. This is partially due to t...

Re: Damage Immunity Fix Coming Sort of Soon..

I have done a quick check on the creature catalog. Most mobs seem to have been affected appropriately, but there are exceptions like the "Luskan Gladiator" and "Servant of Forgrimmithal" that still have immunities above the supposed hardcap. For the Luskan Gladiator, the culprit ...
