    Simu has gone to a whole new level of retarded with this. WTF?

    Monks are broken and they give them a spell that won't be used. Seriously, so triggered here.

They can throw a big celebration, players get Savants and everyone will be happy.
    Only problem is any profit GS makes gets tossed in the mobile game dev pit.

    Best case scenario is this may be preparation to swap out empath's major spirit circle with minor mental, but that is still likely years off.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    240 is better than all of the MnM circle combined. Doubtful that empaths would be excited to lose that.

    GMs realized they can pad their monthly paychecks by selling this as a SK imbed or item at the next event, plain and simple.

    It would actually make *more* sense for this spell to use thrown weapons than spell aiming because you’re aiming/hurling an object not a spell.

    Finally wizards have a powerful bolting spell
    [Roll result: 120 (open d100: 94) Penalties: 10]
    You crouch, sweep a leg at Master Footpad Truaz and connect!
    Master Footpad Truaz falls to the ground! You deftly regain your footing.

    [You have 1 repetition(s) remaining.]

    ** A spike on your spiked ora leg greaves jabs into the Footpad Truaz! **
    ... 15 points of damage!
    Well aimed shot, punctures calf!
    The Footpad Truaz is stunned!
    Roundtime: 5 sec.

    Is it just me or does Estild just not want us to have any nice things ever?

    If this ends up being what happens that will be the shittiest move Simu has ever pulled. And they've pulled some really shady shit over the years.

    "We don't balance things around Duskruin. But we never said anything about creating entirely new spells that will be useless for the only class that can use it natively for cash grab purposes."

    Not to hijack another thread into wizard stuff, but check out Estild's massively retarded non-response:

    I don't remember when the "iridescent" part was added to make those cores stand out, but it was shortly after.

    Up until recently, I was opening on average 200 cores per day. Some days more, some days less.

    Confluence loot seems to have slowed down recently (Confluence loot doesn't work like normal loot, even though no one will confirm this. I can elaborate if someone wants, but it's not really relevant to this post), so I'd estimate on average 100 plinites a day since then. To keep the math simple, I'll apply an average of 150 plinites since April 1.

    April 1 was 160 days ago.

    160 days x 150 plinites = 24,000 plinites

    Number of iridescents found: 0

    Taking into account that before the "iridescent" part was added, I suppose I could have been inadvertently selling these cores to the vendor as "a faintly glowing core." I don't remember when the description was updated, but it was sometime in April I'm pretty sure. So to be generous, we'll just cut April out of the equation altogether and start from May 1.

    May 1 was 130 days ago.

    130 days x 150 plinites = 19,500 cores

    Number of iridescent cores found: 0

    Super generous super lowball numbers since May 1:

    130 days x 100 plinites = 13,000 cores

    Number of iridescents found: 0


    High end @ 200 per day since April 1:

    160 x 200 = 32,000 cores

    Numbers of iridescents found: 0


    The capped ranger in plat I spoke with recently, who is pretty much the only Confluence hunter in Plat, is having the same experience with numbers very similar to mine and has also found 0 iridescent cores since they've existed.

    In unrelated news, I'm already seeing multiple sale threads for those "super rare" foraging mushrooms that came out last month. Yes it's apples and oranges. But it also isn't. But it is, but isn't. And stuff.

    Anyway, just thought I would post some numbers.

    Who claimed the mushroom was going to be "super rare"? It's not. The iridescent core is. They each offer different benefits, so naturally, their drop rate is not going to be the same.

    Oh my bad, you said "rare" and not "super rare."

    >It is now possible for Resist Nature (620) to work on heavy armors (chain and plate), but it requires a new special potion. The herbalist who crafts the other potions will craft the new potion if you bring them a luminescent indigo mushroom, which can be found randomly on high luck rolls when foraging for other items. It is a rare and limited drop. The luminescent indigo mushroom potion must then be poured onto the armor before the other normal potion is applied. When Resist Nature is applied to heavy armors, it is done so at half of the normal effectiveness.

    However, it turns out I was also remembering incorrectly about the cores being "super rare" instead of just "rare" as well:

    >Infuriated by the rising costs of reagents and enchanting materials, wizard guild masters at the local Wehnimer's branch took to the streets to vent their frustrations. The protest turned violent when merchant guild representatives hit the streets to silence and mock the mages who might cut into their profits. Chaos ensued as the mages lost their tempers and unleashed fire and fury on the snooty merchants and their wagons. At day's end, many a merchant was battered and bruised from staff and book, and at least two wagons were reduced to ash. Several wizards were seen running away from the scene carrying bags of loot and merchandise. The local constable has been dispatched to track down the stolen merchandise, but admits the chances of recovery are slim. When asked the total loss of goods suffered in the incident, the merchant's guild representative responded, "the goods are easily replaced, but the recharge trade secrets, RECHARGE TRADE SECRETS are gone!" before rushing off in tears.



    >There now exist wizard master level "rodyn" potions that will convert any magic item into mage rechargeable items for a small window of time (60 seconds). During this time a wizard may use an orb prepared with 517 to charge the item using the same rules that GM-Merchant characters use for charging items. Meaning no chance of failure (assuming the item hasn't deteriorated to the point of not being chargable verifiable via merchant messaging on 405) and much lower mana costs (1 mana per charge) than traditional mage charging. Creation of this potion will require a high-level and rare ingredient, but will produce a potion with 5 pours, allowing upwards of 200 charges from a single non-rechargeable item at nominal risk.

    My apologies for the confusion. But thank you for helping me realize that cores are supposed to be just "rare" and not "super rare" like I was incorrectly remembering.
    An entire post documenting all kinds of numbers, and the only part he responds to is the part that starts with "In unrelated news..."

    Confirmed Estild wants monks to be wizards.

    240 didn't exist yet, they were all worried about losing 225. If the plan had stayed to have Empaths getting MnM, the spell circle would be a bit different from what it is now.

    Can you imagine being a dev for any other game in the world and proposing the equivalent of this in a meeting. Like sitting at blizzard HQ

    <scene, blizzard HQ>
    "yeah so i have an idea for a new spell, where you use your mind to throw a rock at stuff"
    "oh that's cool"
    "yeah the damage would be bassed off of your intelligence stat and spell damage"
    "makes sense"
    "i'm going to give it to rogues"
    "...wait what? you mean wizards?"
    "no, for rogues. See it's this new set of spells that rogues and the new class we're working on can use"
    "...but rogues can't use it"
    "yeah but it's in this set of spells that rogues and the new class can, and the new class should be out but i dunno, 2037 or something"
    "....ok yeah man, go for it"

    I'd trade 225 tomorrow for 1213 as an empath.

    Losing 211/215/218/219 is more of a concern, plus as was stated, 240.
