Invokers

Postby Sonon » Wed Dec 08, 2004 11:55 pm

you know what i think that vokers should have a low lvl pet they could summon so it would be easier for them to solo things.

i am being serious

well yeah mages are supposed to experiment with magic right?
well it should be where vokers could summon a golem like creature that is really weak it could be a spell where they have to have certain components or something

well, I think all mages would benefit from having a familiar. Squidwards can get pets and w.hole, but we can just hope. Definitely keep these familiars low lvl.

It seems unlikely that invokers would ever get a pet. If they did, it would have to be so small that it could not be used to tank, as that would negatively affect game balance. I often wish I could make a small pet though, to see into dark rooms, test unexplored portals for aggros, etc.

stop trying to make invokers something they aren't?

not a solo class
not a pet class

they are the undisputed area and single target spell damage champions.

thats saying a lot considering all the classes clawing and scratching nail and tooth for any kind of a distinction.

See-

help skill_ele
help skill_nec
help skill_sha
help skill_dru
help skill_illu

Those classes are what you get when you cross damage and pets...I'd encourage you to try them out if you want a combination of damage and pet tanking. They are also significantly easier to level up:)

Yeah you guys. That's my job. Jeez. :P


And invokers already have mindless pets that take damage for them. They're called players, but BEWARE, they come in groups!

they are answering your post, i see nothing mean because its all true

why not give warriors some spells while we are at it ...

this game is not meant to be a soloable game .. yes, some classes have pets, some dont ... once again, each class has its *niche* ... mages (IMHO) are meant to be small in stature and fragile .. it's their powerful spells that define them ... it SHOULD be harder to lvl up mages

basically, if you want pets, play a class that already HAS them ... ie: Maedor's post

Yes, you will unfortunately find there are some ppl who ALWAYS post in their nicest form: Cynical at best. These ppl are 'diplomatically challenged'. Nicely put is, they tend to feel they are 'Elite' (again, so the feel). Let them think they are and move on. There is usually some truth to what they say. What sucks most is at least one who typically posts in such manner will think I'm attacking, but I'm not addressing this to anybody.

I didn't see anything mean in the above posts... Did I miss something good? Try to remember that on a BBS system implied derision isn't always implied by the poster.

I think mabye it would be ok to downgrade invoker damage, and then give them a pet.

Mabye they should also have some protection spells (and downgraded their damage some more)

Basically I think all skills that helps soloing is good.

I agree with that! What the class would be called then is invokermentalist! Still, dg'g them some and adding a minor pet, say 200ish hps at 50th lvl, wouldn't be a bad idea.

As a voker i would rather have my damage and no pet.(since pets are available via items). Tho for gameplay balance toning down all spell damage would be good. And no it cant be done to just vokers since other classes are not that far behind.
Or we could jus tget rid of vokers *nod me*

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Monkvokers are the pwn! Leave us alone. We are damage and that's it. We are not pet keepers. We are the berserkers of the mage world. All we do is cast/mem then moan and complain when we can't cast what we want or mem when we want. That's our job. We nuke the you know what out of stuff.

Invokers...

My challenge while playing mine?? Blow the mob up faster than it can blow me up.

Rinse, repeat....

But then I play her when I'm in the mood to "Blow Shtuff Up".

Ask anyone who knows her. *grin* Pets, shmets... Yes, it takes a little longer to level myself up, but there's the challenge. Oh and I get to learn how to really play her.

Guess now I've got Lilira to 50th, I should focus. . .
