  • 35% cc reflect in group ... as if cc isn't worthless enough in this game. [not needed]
  • BS are in a difficult situation. I do not know whether they have the courage, inclination or even authority to make a new server. It would be a gamble, for now ... it may be that in the future it becomes more of a necessity. Ywain is the "last st…
  • Last thing the game needs is more stats on items ... I hope BS has learnt from the curse / OW If you like artifacts so much just buy weapon/armour patterns with mithril ...

  • intended for the thread starter, who previously called other players snowflakes but constantly whines about dying in a game rather than trying to improve, or maybe not following a leader who is incompetent.
  • you are a snowflake, an embarrasssment.
  • Advertise the game, scrap Ywain, scrap most things after ToA, QOL changes ... you will triple population at least.

  • I never play NF but ive been playing Caledonia because it's so easy to get groups, even ones that roam and are looking for 8v8s. why has this rattled people so much? You upset that you can't make your 200k RPs? if that's why you play daoc then im no…
  • Or maybe part of the event is having that level discrepancy, rewarding players who get higher levels faster. Most people who were lower levels are playing in the zerg , of course it's difficult to get kill credit when you are running with 3fg, that'…
  • Let me offer a different perspective. Even the best performing groups were literally begging for people to join them to fill up - ive not been in a single group with the "perfect setup" and most grps have a level range of up to 10. Constant action -…

  • @Enkertons other than a typo (meant disadvantage rather than advantage) don't see what is difficult to understand about saying that every class is different , are you new to the game by any chance?
  • Enkertons wrote: » You're right, Cleric/Friar, Sorc, Minstrel. That's three classes to get some of the critical utilities (SoS, Speed 5, Heals, AoE Mezz with a long duration, etc) of just a Bard or a Healer. I hope you see the problem now... Su…
  • Alb doesn't need more utility, it has more than its fair share. Not making the most of that utility is a player-base issue and would not warrant giving sorcs heals. I agree that BS have made some questionable class changes so I guess nothing is impo…

  • The 3 realms are different, however it is generally accepted that Alb is able to make the strongest 8v8 setup. I just SMH at this post but then again it was made by you so I'm not surprised.
  • It depends on the BG. For Molvik just buy BP items from the borderkeeps and fill it out with random TOA stuff from CMs. Should cost you no more than 5-10plat to get a pretty well functioning template. For Cathal Valley you will be spending a lot mor…
  • Poster above gave a good explanation as to why loading lots of different things to 1 button just isn't the smart thing to do. No idea why any competent NS would need to bind perf + their instas and poisons to one button. You wouldn't want to blow al…

  • I think that you are the one in denial. You are wildly throwing out accusations with buzzwords like "Mojo" and "scripting" without any appreciation of what they mean. You provide only anecdotal evidence and present this as fact. While I can apprecia…

  • Using programs such as Auto Hotkey give only a negligible advantage but is probably worth learning to do if you want to maximise your efficiency but is not essential and if you are good enough you won't need to use it. What's holding you back is poi…

  • You can buy BG gear with bounty points (you get enough by doing a few rounds of the quests) which caps all stats and resists. No MLs/CLs/curse/OW gear mean that the difference between the haves and have-nots is much less in BGs; BS would do well to …
  • The "elite" groups that play on this server just want to roll noobs. It's what they enjoy so let people play how they want. If you actually wanted competition then ... well there are other places you can go for that. I personally couldn't be bother…
  • Do not use the words ToA and classic in the same sentence. ToA is not classic daoc. Classic daoc is pre-ToA. At least get your terminology correct.

  • I wonder if the people complaining about caster stun are new to the game? Most of us who have played since 2002/2003 accept this is part of the game and have adapted. It's part of what make the 3 realms unique. Just like you have to adapt to Theurgi…
  • @Muylae I agree that lowering the delve would have made more sense but I guess BS didn't want to put the effort in. I'm not complaining, just happy that they are fixing something that has been out of control for far too long and quite frankly should…

  • The reality is that they are better at the game than you are, sorry if the truth hurts. Your question actually provides the answer: "what can IRC do that you can't?" The answer is nothing. There is nothing stopping you from running the same setup o…
  • People are mistaking a population issue for a balance issue. If Alb/Mid had a decent EU BG leader and the numbers like Hib does, there wouldn't be a problem.
