Isn't the difference between Spear/Axe different to the difference between Bow/Knuckle?

If it is, that should be changed one way or the other before you tinker with Sword.

I agree, I'd like to see a list of all the HSoma ratios before any changes are to be made.

Theorically Spear and Axe are STR weapons, Bow and Knuckle DEX weapons and sword an all-rounder. On the Soma board game that Elundra and me are making Sword is actually an INT weapon with INT requirments(int is damage there but let's keep that aside). Is it possible at all to make Sword give INT (20% or something) so that is can be a true all-rounder? Quite a bit would change and auras would need to be changed but Im curious to see what people think.

The value for monster sTypeAI is 5.

Looking very good guys not sure about the nerfs to eva but i guess we will have to see how it works out ingame, I would have left hero boots as is but I coul live with 5% however imo defo should not have touched dodge aura

I like the changes to dP's and keen Eyes however keens are easyer to make than dps and with the eva being more ballanced on the server maybe the recipe for Nawhans should be made easyer??

also for the release I strongly believe th epot delay should be altered as imo it spoils the gvw

Now this may have been discussed elsewhere, but I may have skimmed past it and not noticed...

Now my questions are, what are being changed regarding auras and magics?

What I mean is with basic auras (1-4) are the skins going to be alterd at all? And what minor changes to the effect they have are being put in place I.e dodge being nurfed to a lower eva percentage etc.

Also what are your future plans for 5th 6th maybe 7th aura etc... I know there are already these auras in place on certain databases, but what are you going to use and or change?

And the same with magic. What skins are going to be alterd or are you planning to keep them the same?

Is there going to be any new spells for us to look forward to discovering and new magic auras, for example the idea of a 4th aura where some kind of evasion is put in place for those uber mages that want to pvp against a lot stronger warriors.

Would be nice to have a rough idea on your plans for this dan or fin...

Any ideas on these kind of changes would be good if this has not been greatly thought out...


Also if this is in the wrong place please do let me know...

Levelable spells/auras have been discussed in the past.

We thought about adding 20% to auras requirments same as armors but decided not to to leave space for new ones.

So far 2 spells have been changed, the black and white aoe are now stronger than Frost Wind (as seen in the notes).

So far that's it for spells and auara's i think.

Also on a side note everyone seems to want EVA for mages. I'm against it, it doesn't add enough for them and it's simply boring. Of course the more ideas we get for these types of things the better we can pick or adapt.

I hope this answers your question. :P


As an avid mage for staff to e actualy used whn poeple strt eaching skill cap more auras need to be added and imo an eva aura whould work nicely

Agreed 110/ 90 in favour of str imo

Actually I'm glad you took the time replying, the rest ignored it.

For the future though, could you shorten your quotes or not quote long posts? It was a bitch to scroll throught he first one.
