    What do you guys think about lynking bolas to that skill? Something like the higher your throwing skill the more of a % chance you have of dismounting your target with a bola? anyways just a thought feel free to flame or whatever :D

    Hmmm...it makes sense. Bola for throwing skill.

    I think it would be interesting if they linked bola to throwing. Changes things up a bit :D

    would totally suck to have to build the throwing skill up just to use the bola's!
    would be different if you could use the other throwables but we all know there gargoyles only....

    It would suck since most are so use to using them. But almost every weapon skill has one weapon that can dismount players. It would force pvpers to change up their strategy a bit. It would force them to have a wider variety of weapons on hand.

    I think it could be fun to have to change tactics. Keeps the game alive when stuff changes. Or maybe I just like the idea of changes :p

    can't really pigeon hole them to gargoyles only.

    Link them to the throwing skill... reduce the chance of a JOAT or an elf actually dismounting (say 30%) and let the throwing skill take over from there. 120 skill gets you 100% effectiveness.

    maybe just simply make it so bolas don't have the swinging timer that they do for everyone else, if you have throwing, but theres a chance to miss just like any other dismounting weapon.

    Can't throw a bola whilst riding, therefore you cannot throw a bola whilst flying.

    Has this been tested?


    Also I say no to this.... Throwing is gargoyle only. They have a weapon that can dismount already. Making it so only gargoyles can use bolas (100% hit as long in range) is no bueno.

    It was answered in FoF, you know when all they did was continuously answer those redundant gargoyle flying questions even after they mentioned that flying is exactly the same as riding a mount with exception of getting access to special areas...
    lol

    My chef would take up throwing the minute food could be used as a projectile...

    I want to pelt wannabe PvPers with eggs, why waste proper ammo?

    You'd have to tie them to explo-pots by that logic too... and conflags, and confusion blasts, and shuriken.

    Dang, you're right. Hmmm...yeah.
     
  17. I'm all for bolas being tied to Throwing. I dislike items that replace abilities that would ordinarily require skills.
