Heres an Idea: Throwing skill and bolas.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Feb 18, 2010.

  1. Do I need to say more? You want to bola, you now need throwing skill.


    You might not agree with me but you can't deny the logic of movingTHROWING bolas into well THROWING skill.

    What other things should become skill dependant or be moved into another skill?

    Keep in mind that throwing is only available to gargoyles.
    Bolas are not a gargoyle weapon.

    Why are we fascinated with restricting ourselves and squeezing ourselves into neat little pigeon holes?
     
  4. The game is played by pigeon holes.
    Though if it werent then there would be 100% balance. All would be all.



    Since the gargs are the one that throw. Might make them more useful. Though, Id say add that to any characture.

    I understand your logic. However, the major flaw is that all items would have to be confined to a skill if you did something like this. Especially considering bolas aren't really a weapon but an item used for PvP tactic. I wouldn't mind at all if potions were petty if you didn't have alchemy, if bolas missed almost all the time without throwing, enchanted apples only removed curse 25% the time without cooking. However, that is not how it is and I think there would be a lot of unhappy campers if something like this were to be implemented. Players would have to develop actual skills if something like this happened. Most of them are lazy and just want to use disarm and moving shot though.

    Garg already can dismount, it is a special for on oe the throwing weapon and you can do it at MOUNTED SPEED! That is why I started training Throwing only to find out how FUBAR the skill is! needing Swrods to make the skill work is totaly screwy, what where the devs thinking?

    Drop all of the distance crap, trying to stay 4 tiles away from a foe is insane, image if E bolt only worked if the mage was 4 or 5 tiles lmao!! would anyone play a mage, I doubt it.

    The only problem with Bola is the teleport bull****, once again the players prove smarter then the devs. Just make a player stand still for the same time as mounting after they throw a bola, fixed!

    Devs, please fix the garg, i want to use mine! You made the best arties and flight is cool but the throwing skill is a blow job!!

    Woot!

    I don't know what you're on, Mook. I don't need swords for my garg to be successful at throwing, and if you can't stay a few tiles away from your target you're either AFK or really bad at moving. I'm pretty sure the throwing range gets wider as you get better, so you don't get stuck forever trying to avoid a monster from 4 squares away - with the stronger weapons and GM skill you can throw from 10+ tiles, which is equivalent to a good bow.

    Ummm Faerunner, I believe this thread relates to pvp not pvm.
