    Since I've an archer I'm training up, with an elemental slayer bow, and a need for gems to train an imbuer, I thought I'd have a wander round Shame, might even get a piece of Virtue armour as well... except things got a bit odd when fighting Dull Copper ellys.

    Now it may be my memory failing, but I don't remember them 'exploding' on death, doing quite a bit of damage to my archer if they were too close when the final arrow hit them!

    Did they always do that, or is it a recent 'upgrade' they were given?

    I've certainly never seen them do that! Maybe another random new SA thing?

    Interesting.
    Seems some old things are making their way back?
    Perhaps the DEV underlings are cleaning up some code? :thumbup:

    Morning all. I just read a REALLY interesting interview with Cal ... errr .. whatever on Ten Ton Hammer about SA. He said there that they put in a few "easter eggs" since they had time, so maybe these exploding ellies are one of them?

    I have to check them out later *g*
