snakebite

Postby Nassis » Sat Feb 01, 2003 10:49 pm

can snakebite be made to hit more often, please? it's not exactly overpowering damage, but it's useful when naked :P

Actually, make it benefit from hit/damroll could make it semi-useful :)

Oh, and a killproc of eating (small) victims and gaining full food would be cool. Actually, I wanna eat Thrym - get back at the damn freezing me every time I'm there :P

Actually, Cherz and I have both posted a few times about upgrading snakebite. I'd like to see it given a small chance to para/blind/slow or stun.

Snakebite seems to basically be kick as an innate. This means that the damage should be going up with level, unless kick code here is REALLY a deviation from other diku/circle/etc. muds. However, the chance to hit still sucks even with higher skill levels. I only make about half of my kicks with 77 skill.

yeah, nearly every snake says it hardly ever hits compared to bslam and other innates at level 50.

The main use of snakebite is to kill damn mosquitos and crap in hyssk on the path from guild to inn after I die - and for that it works ok. Damage scales with level so most of the damn bugs die on one bite and a barehand hit or two.

I'd just love for it to be a little better so I could be the best melee damage dealer in the game. Or so.

C'mon, fiddle with them damn knobs we've heard so much about!

I agree that snakebite needs to land more often. I even miss all the time when the mob is incapitated! Something is horribly wrong if I can't even bite something that is just laying there motionless, bleeding to death. :roll:

snakebite NEEDS to poison or para or slow, or combo...
it also needs to land more

I just had another cool idea.

It could regen some psps, based on damage dealt. Make a nice line about 'drinking your enemies' blood' or something.

I have no problem with snakebiting

I land about 75% of my snakebites.
