OUCH! That really did HURT!

Postby Valeos/Dorac » Mon May 28, 2001 10:21 am

I've noticed that mobs are critting alot more now...far more than i think they should.
I know as a mage im no good at tanking or anything but when a mob that cons no match for me is critting me nearly every hit doing 20-40 damage to me it really sucks hehe...
Also big mobs are laying the smack down all over the place. Saw one mob crit our tank 4 times in a row right thru stone, and tanks gettin 300point crits killing them instantly all over the place hehe. crits are fine and dandy but as i see it now its just a little too much...
We havent even gotten to the big zones yet, and id hate to see what happens to the tanks someplace like jot if normal mid level mobs are whoopin our asses a frost giant wont even look at stone or dragonscales heh.

That was the point of the logs that I posted in the stories section... We've moved to guardians for XP now, and although it's necessary I hate it Image They hit like trucks, and when they crit it is for 200hp... sometimes they crit 2 or even 3x in a row, that's instant death. This is 1 level 49 mob mind you, so I am anxious to see what happens in big zones with 4+ lvl 53+ mobs pounding (and critting) the tank Image

Looks like mobs got that bonus to critical hits based on strength, too.

20-40 on a hit sounds like they're not critting you, they're just hitting hard.

I sure hope 200-400 are crits Image

Cherzra fears Duergar Guardians.

Stoneskin supposedly stops all except crits.

Stone stops up to a certain amount, so if even a regular hit goes over it, you take the damage.

Same with dragonscales.

It's modified by armor class, and save_petrify, however.

Malacar has it right (heaven forbid Image)

20-40 point hits really shouldn't be going through your stone, though.

I was told stone threshold is around 25-35, skill dependant. That might be wrong.

Dscales is 50-75 or so, skill dependant.

Again, numbers may be off.

So 40 punching thru stone is definitely feasible.

hehe those 20-30 hits i was talking about was from mobs that conned no match for me and i wasnt stoned yet i did have a -27 ac hehe...mobs that small shouldnt be kicking my ass is what im getting at really...but big mobs critting like crazy is still a bit much hehe...i think mobs have more str than normal people to balance them...and with the new crit system they get like 10x higher chance to crit than they should? hehe i dunno...but it sucks Image

Just so ya know, I've never seen a mob punch through my stone for anything as low as 30. I seriously doubt the threshold is that low, even at 24th level.

A kobold slave makes a nice ballet step which plants a foot a mile above the Hlaund war-leader's head.
The Hlaund war-leader half kills you with his mighty hit!
YIKES! Another hit like that, and you've had it!!
You gasp in pain from the Hlaund war-leader's awesome hit!
The Hlaund war-leader staggers about, but manages to get to his feet.

You barely slash the Hlaund war-leader.
