Seriously, is this dagger the new BC t-shirt? Use to be supple chainmail but that's a quest item now. Can't even use during Tiamat/BC because of glaive procs crashing the game.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

Proc was made level-dependent. Not sure what level that char is but from the hps I'd guess above 40 so it shouldn't be an issue . . . maybe a bug?

It's not meant to be the 'T-Shirt'. I'll look into it some more, it may have been a case of just bad luck, but it still shouldn't stop dancing quite so quickly.

Even when it does sit out for a bit longer, it means you are usually not wielding anything for a round or two which really isn't worth it. MAybe it should automatically switch you to a weapon on in inventory. Make the proc say something like it 'dances away and blah pulls a shiny stick of blah from their belt.'

I always used a trigger to automatically wield a secondary weapon when it procs and switch back when it returns:

Code: Select all

/def -Fp20 -mglob -w -t'*ruby encrusted dagger floats out of your hands*' \
        animated_weapon_trig = \
        /if (!hiding) \
                /if ( {weapon1} =~ {weapon3} ) \
                        weapon2 %{weapon4} %;\
                        /w %;\
                        stomp %;\
                /else \
                        weapon1 %{weapon3} %;\
                        /w %;\
                /endif %;\
        /endif %;\
        group all

/def -Fp20 -mregexp -w -t'ruby encrusted dagger (flies back to you|appears in your inventory)' \
        animated_weapon_return_trig = \
        /if (!hiding) \
                /if ( {weapon2} =~ {weapon4} ) \
                        remove %{weapon4} %;\
                        weapon2 ruby %;\
                        wield ruby %;\
                /elseif ( {weapon1} =~ {weapon3} ) \
                        remove %{weapon3} %;\
                        weapon1 ruby %;\
                        wield ruby %;\
                /endif %;\
        /endif

maybe what they should do is when it leaves your hand, another dagger is created automatically in its spot, that has more proc benefits than a khanjari on an EFHR... =)

Make that a morally ambiguous, transgender confused, gnome/burro cross-pollinated rogue, and I'm all for it.

I use a trigger as well, but if you have just circled or something, you can't wield for two rounds :(.

Increase rogue exp tables mightily to compensate @once.
