Re: Disaffekted

I don't know if you'll have much success elsewhere, the trends at Illarion are happening almost everywhere in the RPG market. Playing online with other people, strict RP enforcement, and an Indy game made by volunteers - in 2001 these concepts were novelties, not so much anymore. UO shards, tibia, r...

Devs: Is it even possible to have certain stats (ex. Attack speed, health regeneration) boosted in small 1% increments?

Re: Gems and the Recipe for Disaster

Throwing out some ideas: 1) Make gems the mechanism for magic resistance Right now we have armor for melee damage but basically nothing for magic damage. This option would involve removing any magic resistance skill and any armor effect on magic resistance. It would also mean removal of gems from we...

Re: One town instead of 3.

On the idea to have a player controlled town: Effectively, we do have that. To what benefit? The devs, for whatever reason, couldn't stand that Troll's Bane changed a lot, so they went in the completely opposite direction. The GM leaders are permanent and the player leaders are quasi-permanent. Bef...

Re: Gems and the Recipe for Disaster

A fourth faction set up in the right way could work. Or making one of the current three (four?) bearable.

Re: Gems and the Recipe for Disaster

Every week that goes by a new character created is in a deeper hole in relation to the veteran players in terms of gems than the week before, which seems pretty astonishing. I assume the counter-argument would be that the diminishing returns get so high that it's somewhat fair, but given that most p...

Re: On Railroading

Based on the details given, you guys already coordinate in PvE (and spread negativity about Jupiter :roll: ) in TS, so are you conceding you all use it for PvP too? I see no advantage. That's crazy. Communicating in voice is way more efficient than coordinating in text. Also I noticed in the past it...

Re: On Railroading

No one is disputing it's availability, most methods of cheating are technically available to EVERYONE. Do the Bearers & Sea Serpent use Teamspeak (possibly even the official TS) to gain advantages in PvP and/or metagame?

Re: Increase cooldown for healing potions.

All these topics can be summarized by the fact that low scale PvP is very clunky and frustrating. I think the reason for this ultimately is that people have a number of options to become "invincible" or "semi-invincible" to avoid defeat: Overpowered/unbalanced gems - Having sets of really high level...

Re: Running away with low health

The heavy use of potions is intended from developer side. Personally I'm indifferent to the matter. To inflate demand for alchemist products? I don't see any other substantial benefit, this current attitude is very different from what has been done historically (heavy limit on usage during battle)....

Re: Running away with low health

Wouldn't mages still be at a disadvantage though? On average their agility (innate walking speed) and constitution (regen) will be lower. I assume they'll be dissuaded from using the best types of armor as well (less mitigation). This feels like a solution to a narrow problem. It may be satisfying i...

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

It's underlying story is completely and totally unrelated to all ingame events and there is no conceivable plot at all -- no red line of events. And apart from that, everything that happens ingame is unrelated, there is nothing for characters to figure out, there is only mindless content fed to the...

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

There's a lack of new people staying. Illarion has trouble retaining new people recently in part because of how people behave. A couple of many examples off the top of my head: -Staff members arguing with and swearing at players in IRC while multiple newbs were watching. -I once was teaching a new p...

Re: [Race Guild] Dwarves of Galmair

It may have more to do with a certain butthurt dev running roughshod all over everything, but surely any such sentiment is caused by prejudice against the color of their forum name.

A note is left on a tree outside Galmair. Dear LCA, I come to you with a rather specific request from a business associate of mine. Word of your business has traveled fast.

Not necessarily, it could just be a small island off the coast of the current region, accessible by any of the docks.

Fourth Faction

Adding a fourth faction has generally been considered a bad idea but given general feedback elsewhere it may not be such a bad idea. Adding a new location that allows for leeway in play styles could be a boon to the game. The general characteristics of the new faction could be something along the li...

Re: [Race Guild] Dwarves of Galmair

I imagine support does matter. Take Cadomyr for example. One player deleted their noble char and quit due to non responsiveness of the alleged cadomyr GM for months. A second noble spot has been left vacant for 383 RL days (not a typo). Are the bearers neglected in this way?

Re: [Race Guild] Dwarves of Galmair

Even if it was relaxed later people already had left. Based on what devs/GMs said to me in 2011 it sounded like they pulled most resources from the old client/live server to the new client the previous year. That'd be 2010 which is when numbers started to decline. Karrock's statement is supported by...

Most if not all players are opposite to the current policy so why you are keeping it? Where do you take this knowledge?

Re: Player Governments/ Evil town

Everyone got funneled into Galmair and had to duke it out amongst themselves leading to frustration and dislike festering, and it went on for months because ultimately the devs & GMs are stuck with what exists, so any changes would be very small and generally meaningless.
