Area of Effect Damage: Instant Comedy

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Jan 19, 2009.

  1. While I must admit having a Hit Damage Area bow is awful nice for doing Champ Spawns (especially at the lower level), it does have an interesting way to get normally docile stander-bys to come after you because they soaked up some of the area damage.

    Even more funny when they are flagged unattackable and thus invunerable.

    My funniest story was in the Ilsh Pyramid, taking on swarms of undead while trying to drop the 5k for the forune from the Sphinx.

    Boom! Area of effect and triangle-head takes 10 points of damage, and starts to come after me, seemingly impervious to my attacks.

    LOL I ran like a headless chicken all around the pyramid but couldnt seem to find the way out, and soon was Pharoah-ly thrashed.

    Made the mistake of using mine to kill a hart id just tamed/released in the middle of an area heavily populated by pixies..
     
  3. Interesting...

    ...I wonder what effect, if any, this might have on a certain usurper King?

    Couple years ago I gave a area effect weapon to a semi-new returning player. Everything was going ok until a message popped up in guild chat that she needed a rez because a blue healer had started attacking her and killed her for no reason. Took a while to figure out that she had attacked something that was next to the healer.
     
  5. Last night my guild was working the Humility Champ Spawn (reptile) and it was up to the last tier.

    By accident I targetted a guildmate's tamed Greater Dragon.

    Whoops. BBQ Paladin is today's special.

    Yeah, go to fel with a 46% hit poison area, 40 SSI magical shortbow and hit a red standing in the middle of other red archers. Found out the hard way that the bow was great for certain situations, but that wasn't one of them.
     
  7. Try the Chiv AOE Holy Light ... by purpose it should affect FOE (neutral, aggro), however it gets the attention of ANYTHING in the vicinity.
