Yuan Ti movement

Postby Ssryth » Tue Apr 10, 2001 2:15 am

Was wandering around Hyssk (actually running away from aggros) and a thought sprang to my mind... maybe yuanti use up a lot of moves running around in a standing position is because they shouldn't be moving around in an upright position! Sure this is a better fighting position, but for moving... they are best when flat out slithering about... so perhaps when moving around reclined, they should take less moves than when "standing"

What say you? Image

I definitely love that idea.

I hope it gets implemented :P

movement for yuan-ti is a b*tch. can't even ride anything, or maybe can ride that flying carpet but never tried it.

This is an awesome idea. Would even help snakes avoid getting bashed straight away by aggros, who would miss because of the reclining position Image

Yeah, it rules. Logical and fun, gives yuans a little toy when comparing themselves to the otherwise totally superior drow.

Definitely an awesome idea... also, what about snake reflexes... not sure if this has been covered already, or already implemented, but a bonus to agility maybe? Snakes are real quick and strike fast... just a random thought

According to the helpfiles they are "of genius intelligence" and "lightning fast", yet drow mem faster and get better agi/dex Image

Hey Cherzra,

Yuan-ti have the exact same starting stats as half-elves.

Enjoy.

Help drow says drow 'trail humans in strength and con, but are slightly better in all other areas' or something like that. Help yuan says yuan 'are lightning fast and of genius intelligence'. It saddens me that despite these praising words, snakes actually suck compared to drow, even in the int and agi/dex department. Either the help files need to be changed, drow need to be downed, or snakes need to be upped... drow get all the glory now.

My 2 cents have a nice day.

In total agreement here. The only reason why people play this race was its a lot of fun, but at the same time very outclassed, drow have far better mem times, better dex/agi I believe, can wear more slots, have innates as nice, and a much easier HT....think its time snakes get something, or drow lose some braincells Image.

You guys all seem to be forgetting one thing: Drow are blind in daylight. Now that's not only annoying at times, as I found out last night doing Jot Grid, it can be extremely dangerous for the group, and yourself. I'll admit Yuan do seem to be a *bit* underpowered, but their innates are significantly better than a drow's. I wouldnt mind having innate barkskin, would you? However, downgrading drow intelligence is hardly the answer to try and balance out the races. After all, if drow intelligence goes down, I think it would only be proper to bring the Greys down with them. Image

"but their innates are significantly better than a drow's. I wouldnt mind having innate barkskin, would you?"

Better? most snakes last time played casters..casters rarely wore any ac, never got ac spells (after the first 20 levels exping anyway), they wore hp/ss/int gear. How is 10 extra ac a significantly better innate? Image If anything drow have better innates..The day vision seems to be the only thing a snakes got going for it Image
