Heal wands in ninja forms.

    Devs should really take a look at this. Ninja forms were supposed to be handicapped by the lack of spells, but using wands works in forms. I do not think this was intended. Devs please take a look at this.

    I thought the wands weren't affected by FC/FCR, making the casting times almost prohibitively long?

    Dog form, HPR suit, Greater heal wand. Add it to a stealth tamer with a dragon....

    A level 4 spell if it's not affected by FC/FCR still isn't going to take that long to spam at 0/0.

    Plus there's 0 mana/reag cost.

    I believe it's a creative way to use the item. Seriously is there really that many uses for wands anymore. If youre runing a dexter or archer are you gonna use wands for healing attacking? Running a mage are you gonna use wands? There are situations but far rare. It's good there getting a use finally. These wands where made to be used for spells when you cant use magery skill. There being used as design. Once again I applaud the inevation of players to make useless objects useful again bravo.

    Dont blame the ninja for being resourceful and using everything at his disposal, blame the dev for not putting proper balancing and limitations on things.

    I thought they gave them a usage delay too? Like a cool-down period. Do they need to be equipped to work?

    I guess I should be asking are wands any better than chugging potions? I suppose they're lighter an insurable, but I wonder how they perform, comparatively speaking. :stretcher:

    From experience you have to have magery skill to get any decent heals off a healing wand, further cramping a template. I am not sure how this is game breaking?

    It doesn't have to be "or" ;)
    They have to be equipped, and have a "casting" time in which you're frozen.
    But, you can use both.

    First off, when using the wand you can't move, second, there is a delay after using them so there is no way to spam it. The delay on using the wand makes it almost useless in the middle of a fight anyways.

    *disarm current weapon, equip wand, use it, wait while frozen and unable to move and open to being disrupted, target self, disarm, equip weapon* --in a fight? lmao

    When using it you are revealed and can't stay hidden.
    Any ninja would highly prefer to use pots over healing wands. Speaking of which, why don't you just complain about ninjas using pots instead.

    Why bother reading my post when you can sound stupid later on...

    DOG FORM, HPR SUIT, ++++++ A GREATER HEAL WAND. Throw in a dragon for protection and I want to see someone other than another tamer try and kill this person. And that is before they decide to leave by just smoke bombing. Oh and I play siege so no candy ass passive reveal.

    But thanks for posting in my thread.

    Bring that character to chessy and i'll lay down 100 mill garanteeing i slam that template, matter of fact any dexer tamer i'll easily kill, as will any good mage with some knowledge.


    Theres many many overpowered items/templates in the game at the moment to complain about other than a simple heal wanding stealther, which as before was stated would suck very bad.

    Ooo, so it's really a tamer, that explains it, lmao. So he sits there healing with a dragon doing all the work. This is more of a tamer rant now. But the fact is wands are simply imbued items. Much like a weapon that casts lightning or fireball on a target when it is hit. You are not casting the spell, the item is.

    Why don´t you bring your character to Siege instead?

    Oh yeah, you can´t transfer. Neither can he...

    Are you going to "slam" this template after you run it out of magic wand charges and pots? You will be a dragon turd long before that happens. And even if you do run them out of charges and pots, I am sure that long before that ever happens the person running this template could just smoke bomb and leave.

    I wonder if casting spells off scrolls works in forms, I mean the spell is in the item and all.

    I am willing to bet no on that. I am hoping no.

    If you could we would have seen a whole lot of mages casting off scrolls in animal form.
