Magic resistance

Postby namatoki » Wed Apr 04, 2001 6:34 am

Okay, I think some low level mobs are resisting a bit too much. I cast spiritknife as my lvl 6 ogre shaman on orc slaves in DK and 3 times in a row they resisted. Plus they resist numerous totem darts. I think this needs to be toned down a bit. Or at lest look into this...

I agree fully. It's way too high. Definitely needs some tweaking.

For that matter, I've noticed level 4 merchants east of WD resisting my shilleighs. They're human and low level, magic resistance isn't exactly appropriate IMO.

Umm..are you sure they're 'resisting', as opposed to you missing your spells?

When mobs resist, you get that 'Soandso resists your spell' message, when you miss you get a different verson of the spell message that implies failure to conenct with the target.

That happens, btw, when the damage from your spell is reduced to <= 0.

Shev, the message is to the effect that the <mobname> resists the spell and it fizzles around him. If you look at Tanras' post where he fought some brain golems and illithids, the brain golems resisted the rot spell. I'm sure that the spells weren't missing. The message is in blue ANSI btw.

Anyway, after a few more fights, the orc slaves stopped resisting as much.

Yeah, I'm sure they were resisting. At least that's what the blue message told me =p
