Thread: The 925 Clusterfuck

    The smart thing would be to have a cumulative Elemental Defense that unlocks a threshold at higher levels and replace 406 or 414 with an Essence boost of some manner. The idea that you have damaging spells with no other supplemental methods to boost it is poor optics and even poorer planning.

    So...basically Simu doing Simu shit.

    I reached the cap rapid firing 519 with wracking, and even with capped magic skills the amount of time it took was absolutley bonkers. Imo the changes has pretty much killed off enchanting for anyone under lvl 100. The dev team should have really just copied and pasted 735's collection time frame.

    This is correct.

    This is correct.

    It should be pretty obvious by now that this was done to cause scarcity so they can sell more enchanting services at their cash grab events.

    Have the well run so dry that Wyrom needs to sponge up on what was a Wizard’s birthright since forever. I don’t believe even Simu will stoop that low.
    There's no "big if" to it.

    If you accept after testing that they thought "Oh yea this is totally legit, grinding out 40 hours a week is exactly what they want!". You just may be retarded.

    If this is to punish table wizards, where is that exact same feelings towards pocket clerics, empaths, bards etc? Should they not also be required to build some form of energy to perform their services?

    Plain and simple, they are cannibalizing their customers time investments so they can bilk them for more money.

    Congrats, you have reached level 25. You now have a spell you can't use.

    We're mostly intelligent people here. I am good faith too by saying they got bright people at simu too.

    I am under the impression Wyrom gave 2 conditions for 925 tweaking: annihilate pocket wizards AND put a grinding system related to the amount of skills you have (the higher skills = better at getting essence).

    Why those 2 conditions? Objectivaly, it's to answer to a 2019 condition: MOST PEOPLE ARE LAZY AND ARE WILLING TO PAY TO SAVE TIME

    It's a marketing concept a lot of companies know: people would rather pay to save time than to do it themselves.

    I find those 925 changes to fall completely in that concept WITH the elimination of the pocket wizard ( therefore, forcing an effort in time to enchant).

    The current dev crew is all about making things super slow and tedious. And being held accountable for anything at all doesn't exist, so they literally just do whatever the fuck they want no matter how trash it is for the game.

    As far as I know, Naos's testing consisted of running a script with unlimited mana and it took him 8 hours to hit the weekly cap.

    He also has no idea what his lore setup was during this per his own words on Discord, because he's such a pro and all.

    I think Naos means well. The problem is he's still stuck in GS3 where everything has to be a super secret formula because reasons, and follows the same general retarded make-everything-slow-and-tedious-and-boring-as-fuck-because-that's-how-we-did-it-playing-pen-and-paper-rpgs-and-by-golly-we-loved-it thought process that people like Doug and Krakii are all about.

    I'm pretty sure Krakii's rl job is to just read the forums, because he's in every thread in every folder every day posting retarded shit about how the way things worked in 1993 is somehow still relevant today.

    I doubt Wyrom was involved in the dev process for 925 at all. He's pretty hands off with dev for the most part.

    At least Wyrom had the good grace to stay in his lane. The lane of being a useless PM.
