Someone is able to learn magic even if all player teachers are inactive.

For the point that it would work, it as already more advantages.
Pellandria wrote:I know we got problems with the current system as people wait too long and so on,
We have problems? Really? In my point of view the current system does just not work. After more then one year, there are 3 new teachers. Impressive ( and the main part of the old teachers is inactive )
Pellandria wrote:but the npc will just change that nearly every char will know ancient,
Only the characters with the needed attributes. And the learning of ancient is not binded to the learning of magic directly.
Pellandria wrote:something that I allready dislike because it seems that some chars, who aren't even mages or such, can speak ancient allready,
But thats the fault of the players, not of the npcs. Those who were in charge gave to books out of the wrong persons.
Pellandria wrote:so there is no need for ancient anymore as everyone can speak it
Cool second common language. It is allready this way. The current not working system didn't stop this happening.
Pellandria wrote:and that some people gain acces to the ground types of magic like ems pen and such,
I see no disadvantage in this.
Pellandria wrote:but as I said it won't teach any rp at all,
Sounds like that "only me and my friends are able to roleplay" dunno but i think everyone who actually plays Illarion is able to learn magic.
Pellandria wrote:if you want the old "everyone can use Magic" system back bring in the books and go,
No. The books are old style. We can make much cooler things now you know? But basically we don't want that everyone can use magic, we want that more can use magic. Thats the whole point. Warriors still won't be able to use any kind of magic. They won't be even able to get runes.
Pellandria wrote:because no matter how hard any quest will be, someone will spread the solution and then its all gone to waste,
And still only a small part of the characters will be able to learn magic.

Pellandria wrote:magic is allready looked weakly upon resulting of the weak power of the ground spells, heck people don't even fear illusions, this will just downgrade Magic to something like a normal craftman.
You can't know this. I wonder why some allways think they know bloody everything before it was even tried. Any kind of engine based teaching system can't be compared with something that was there before.
Don't look at everything with a "oh no, someone could get magic" before it was tried. We gave the current stuff a chance. More then one year. Many said it can't work. Including some Devs. And hell i put it in anyway. Now its visible that it does not work. The other were right, i was wrong. But it will be fixed.
