Did they change healing?

    I noticed on my one char 100 healing that I fail curing basic poison now, also I am training a new char and at 86.6 heal and I am getting the message the bandages barely help and no I am not being hit by anything that would cause this.

    Just wondering if they made things different and if anyone else noticed this, it also seems they put in a delay to it too.

    This may be a stupid question but you do have anatomy??

    The timer is in, you can lower it by reaching 140dex.

    yes I have anatomy and I know about the timer, that is not what I am talking about when I mean delay, I mean there is a delay when say you hit macro for it you get you must wait before you do something else. There was not this before If I recall correctly and I used healing a lot.

    What client are you using ?

    I'm using 2d and I have 116.7 healing and 120 anatomy 150/155 dex and I'm not getting any message or delay I have noticed "your finger slipped" a lot more lately tho ...

    Which part did you notice, the poison thing or the delay. I tried healing poison potions like 15 and it worked fine but when say a creature cast it on me I will fail.

    I am failing healing poison a lot now as well, but in my case it is because in moving some skills around I managed to drop my healing from 100 down to 75....DOH!!!!!!

    This is kind of an odd question, but I've been noticing some unusual barding failures as well and it's set me to wondering:

    Do you notice the failures occuring most often right after you log in on the character, or do they happen the entire time you play, especially after the first 20 minutes or so of playing the character? Also, if you've used a power scroll for healing on the character, how much of a gap is there between the character's real healing skill, adjusted healing skill (i.e., with jewelry and other modded items), and the skill cap based on using (or not using) a power scroll? And I guess to complete the set of weird questions, if you're having issues with healing, how much of your healing skill is based on wearing modded items versus "real" healing skill?

    People could just be having some wacky run-ins with the RNG, but I do wonder if the developers might not be doing some quiet tinkering with skills to address some issues with GGS or RoT gains and/or evaluating how much value to give to skill that is based on wearing modded items. Am totally guessing at what's going on though....may be absolutely nothing.

    I will hop on my char and play her for awhile. It happened right after I logged in earlier but I was only doing a test and then logged out. I will stay on for about an hour or so and post back here. I know my real healing skill is 110 and my anatomy is at 100. No mod jewels or items at all for those 2 skills.

    I have another warrior with mods up to 110 so I will try her as well. Also, I played my legendary bard (no mods) earlier and had no troubles at all on fiends. I will try them with another bard I have who does have mods after I test the warriors. Hope this helps.

    k weird. I have had 0 trouble at all this time with my fencer who has 110 healing and 100 anatomy. I have been to fiends, shame for the scorps, reapers, drank greater poison and now a guildmate is casting on me. I have healed every single poison attempt whereas earlier I could not. It seems pointless to continue with this char as I am having no problems. I am now going to log on to my swords char with mods and see how that goes. Oh yeah and my Dex is 125.

    When I was using my char with healing ( I say it like that cause i changed him to gargoyle and think he is now bugged overall), I've noticed that much like with casting spells, even though the bandage was placed, nothing actually happens. I have my healing macro to targetself so I don't know if that has something to do with it.

    My char is an elf and the only things I did since I played earlier and had the troubles were I rebooted my computer and I did not use a macro for healing myself. I actually dclicked the bandages because my UOA macro wasn't working very well for some reason. It would not finish targeting me. I will re-set the macro and try again with her. *sigh* Trying to pinpoint software issues can be such a pain in the behind!

    Speaking of GGS, didn't there used to be a table that told you the delay between gains based upon total skill level and skill attempted to be raised? I can't find it anywhere. My bookmark now takes me somewhere else.

    ok the warrior with mods can heal just fine. No slipping at all and she is also an elf char and my macro is working fine as well. She has 125 dex, anatomy 108 (mod to 110) healing 107.6 (mod to 110) and both are scrolled only to 110. Primer on Arms talisman and nothing else special. This is very weird. I was slipping right and left earlier today and now I heal perfectly every single time. I drank greater poison, had a guildy poison me, visited a reaper and a gargoyle, saw a fiend or 2 and went to Shame for a bit of scorpion action. No troubles at all. Maybe someone else should test it now? I am going to go try my lower bard and see how she fares with some baddies. This is so very odd.

    Nothing out of the ordinary with my bard. I'm not having any troubles at all with any of my characters. Sorry! (well not really, but you know what I mean) Again, the only thing different from earlier is that I rebooted my computer.

    Mine I have noticed non stop with my 100 heal char, and its real skill no jewelry or anything. I also noticed curing poison with minor cure mage spell is failing also and its just a regular poison. I have also failed with chiv cleans by fire. So maybe they actually boosted poison str and did not tell anyone.

    What I noticed today was lots of barding failures AFTER I switched to using an exceptional GM-carpenter crafted instrument instead of the cheapie instruments purchased from a carpenter NPC. Music is about 90 and peacemaking is mid-80s and she's wearing no jewelry for barding purposes. Getting failures right and left using the exceptional instrument and only a few using a new ordinary instrument purchased from an NPC.

    Why more failures all of a sudden using an exceptional instrument versus one that is not? Doesn't make sense to me at all. And it's not like the spawn has changed any. I'm just doing this with my LJ/miner character, chopping trees or mining in the same mostly placid places she's been hanging out in Ter Mur for most of the rest of this week.

    I guess I'll chalk it up to super-streaky RNG because nothing else makes much sense.

    I will pay much closer attention and try different things as I play my bard chars alot and I will post anything different that I notice. I was using a slayer so I will go switch to both exceptional and non exceptional instruments and give it another whirl.

    This all seems very strange then, because I will fail a few times in a row.

    Hmm Maybe it is an elf thing, the one with 100 heal I have is an elf. I guess will try my fencer, and see if he does too being a human.
