Proposed Changes: Teleport

Post#1 » Sun Nov 24, 2019 7:56 am

Hello everybody,

in the near future we'll introduce a small balance change for Teleport. The reason is that Teleport has to make the caster ethereal for a short duration to break the aggro (without it Teleport feels very bad). The drawback of this solution is that it can be exploited by spamming Teleport which makes you more or less invincible.

To prevent this exploit we will introduce a Mana system for the Teleport spell. You get a specific Mana threshold and a passive Mana regeneration. Each use of the Teleport spell consumes some Mana and the spell fails if you don't have enough Mana left. In comparions to a cooldown on Teleport this has the advantage that you can spam the spell for a while but not infinitly. That way we can probably prevent exploitation without making a dynamic playstyle impossible.

Details on the numbers will be posted here when I am done. The initial numbers probably won't be the final ones though. We will play around with it a bit and adjust things if neccessary.

Greetings!

Hello again,

I have a little update on this topic. The amount of Mana you have will be displayed on the character screen and on your party bar. On the party bar you just get a tiny bar which lets you estimate how much mana you have. In the character screen you also see exact values for your current and maximum Mana as a number.

For testing I used the following values:
Max Mana : Spellcraft Skill
Mana Regen : 1% of Max Mana per round
Teleport cost : 3 Mana

Feel free to make different suggestions for values.
