I personally prefer my suggestion to be based upon player stats, because all players will have different base stats. If you base it upon sv's then that's sort of pointless because then everyone starts off the same. The key is to allow the players to have their stats tailored somewhat in order to pro...

More drastic proposals, magics

One of the major unbalancing factors right now is how much magical damage can do. Now a lot of people have thought of various ways to limit this however. Usually this involves a downgrade for this class or that class. I'd like to propose something different. If you take a look at melee classes, all ...

Equipment limits need to be reworked

Why was it decided to limit the amount of bonuses that could be found on items implemented that low? For instance the max hit/dam roll on a weapon is like 2/2 for a one hander, or something along those lines. However the way I see this is that it's limiting the equipment variety.

I don't see how that differs all that much than what is implemented here. If it does a set amount it still favors the mob a lot since they have way more hps than any cold/fireshielded pc could ever get. Thus overall they'll take less damage while the pc overall will take more damage.

They already have scabbards, so why would you need sheaths? they do the same thing don't they? It's just that most people would prefer not to "waste" a slot for an item like this. I believe the item is also a container so if you want to "rp" it then you can remove the sheath and put it in there.
