    It wasn't terribly over exaggerated DC, I have seen exactly such disparagements :P

    I think there should be SOME differences between the characters' mana to individualize them, but yeah...
    not this business of one char having 600+ mana and the next have 300 or so. (Maybe that's overly
    exaggerated, but you get the point *smile*)

    I like the idea and the reasons are all so true. Even as far back as 1995 .. yeah I started Boromir then .... mana gains were elusive. it tended to be very frustrating at times. You have perfect eq .. and get 4 14 8 .. while someone else who is just rolling alone with whatever eq they have found .. gets 20 17 19...

    Yeah, I like this change

    Hi,

    I like the changes being rolled in as they are coded, tested and vetted. I think it adds anticipation to the game with people wondering what's coming up next.

    It definitely has my interest!

    Thanks Tynian!

    So, if under the new change a character had a maxed stat where the racial has changed, and the effectiveness of the stat in question has changed, does that mean my stats moved when they 'weren't supposed to'?

    Specifically, my ogre warshammy previously had 575kg carryable as a shaman prime (and been that way since the character's roll in 2003) due to 21 natural str, as of the recent change, she has 500kg carryable.

    So...is this due to conflicting shifts with the min/max changes, and is this something that will fix itself when the caps are shifted to 25 across the board, or do you just want me to shush and wait to see until then to see if it corrects itself or not?

    On a different note, I love the new changes. I believe the dynamic hp/mana calculation is going to be good for the game, as well as helping older chars be more playable. I have always been for setting the caps up to 25 because then it really does make it more of a playstyle choice for secondary bonuses from 'hidden' stats of the class, rather than just str/dex (since dmg output is all anyone ever cares about)

    I'm sorry if this is not very cohesive, trying to cook and string thoughts together simultaneously here :P

Some of us older characters stopped wearing luck while leveling when we hit our MAX stats, so don't have a bunch of extra trains........

    Nice so that helps older players kind of. Though looking back I wish I would have wore luck eq while leveling well all of OM and all of thief=P but that is my fault no one elses.

    I had to edit because i said wouldn't have went i meant would
