    Hello people!

    All I really need is a simple explenation. It's about the following sentence in the last publish.

    "• Necromancy: Evil Omen now reduces Mysticism Stone Form Immunity by 30."

    I honestly have no clue what it means.

    Naturally I was hoping it was some kind of nerf to make mystic mages in stone form killable in a 1v1.
    But alas... I have yet to notice any difference and you can still not take a mystic mage in stone form down 1v1, unless you get extremely lucky on your dexer.

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards, Maleachi

    • Stone Forms gives 100% immunity to all levels of poison.
    • Evil Omen : Reduces your targets Resisting spells Skill by 50% & increases the level of the poison by one level.
    Well... your not alone in your confusion. If I ran it through my personal translator I'd say it means this..
    Following EO+ Poison, Stone form effectively gives 70 immunity to all poison levels. So if you EO + poison a stone form target they'd have 1/2 their Magic Resist (60 usually) so you WILL poison them like 95% of the time based off that number but THEN a 70% check is made to see if the poison makes it past the STONE form. So a 30% chance to EO + Poison a Stone Form character. Lets just simplify & call it 1 in 3....

    This is pretty much as I assumed it would be... But!
    When I try EO + Poison a mystic in stone form, it's not like I am poisoning him.

    Really... Not 1/3 of the time, not 1/5 of the time... Just, don't. Hence my confusion!

    The whole Evil Omen change to have any kind of bonus effect at all vs stone-form wasn't really necessary, because stone-form isn't the problem...

    It's Protection used WITH stone-form. This is one of those things I would love to see the "Big nerf-hammer" to hit repeatedly... Grinders are probably the most annoying thing in UO-PvP right now.

    Stone-form & Protection Should cancel each other out. (casting protection would remove stone-form & vice-versa)...

    It's not like you can't stay at 2/6 casting speed while in stone form anyway... Stone-form would still be amazing, just not as close to impossible to beat if both players are "good" at pvp.

    But anyway, I've not tested Evil-omen in regards to this change. You would be better off as before pub-81, just EO Mana-vamp and hope you can keep them out of mana until they die... poison won't do it.
