Over amped ploy

    Lately I've been nailed a lot by necro/mages who evil omen/paralyze me then have far too much time to do things like block me in with 2 energy fields then let their buddies help them gank me quick.

    I've got 115 spell res just so I don't have to carry a stupid trap box but looks like I will have to go back to adding one more thing to my inventory in order to escape this strategy.

    Someone really needs to take a hard look at the combination of magery and necromancy. It's a tough template to master I know, but man I carry apples, use 115 skill points, and now carry a trap box just because of this one template.

    If you play a mage just cast harm on yourself. If you play a dexxer just keep a box on you...if you are worried about losing it then carry two insured lesser poison pots on you. Regardless of what you do...you should have a macro for each choice and be willing to carry it/them. Otherwise run...dont fight a template if you cannot compete with it. :)

    Honestly...with apples, a box, and pots...you should be able to counter any necro mage. Biggest trick though is having a way to burn up that EO...consistantly.

    BTW...a necro mage is a very mana intensive template. If you can manage to counter those EO all you have to do is heal until they run out of mana. Once this happens conc. blow the poop out of them.

    Yes it is quite lame that a spell combination that takes less than 20 mana and 1.5 seconds to cast can negate 120 skill points.

    The resist lowering part of the EO spell should be removed, it would not kill the usefulness of the spell and would remove this lame tactic that ******* resort to when they can't normally kill someone.

    I think the paralyze spell should be removed from pvp altogether. It has been a gimp tactic since the first time I pvped 9 years ago. I have magic resist on some of my chararacters solely because of the para spell. Should I really have to devote 120 skill because of 1 spell? I understand that many will counter that magic resist has other benefits. But I can live with all the other spells except that damn para spell.
  5. Well they used to have a spell magic reflection.
    You used to need regs to cast.
    You used to have thieves that could steal regs.
    You used to have some cool things.

    I say everyone wrestle naked. Then we are all even.

    This would solve a lot of the problems imo. Bring back it back. I used to cast on myself all the time, and i was amazed how many mages would para themselves, as I ran away with their stuff.

    The fact we have mages that run full LRC suits makes it tough to fight mages on my thief as well. I miss the days of stealing their garlic, then watch them try to poison me, and poison themselves with no abilty to heal themselves. ROFL. Again, that type of fun allowed me to get away from quite a few players...la

    I've always been under the belief that anyone that has to resort to a para gank to kill stinks at PvP... it's lame.... If that's the only way you can get kills pretty sad... it's a lack of skill... but in my opinion I don't think it should be removed.... It has it's place. It's just lame... Whenever someone uses it on my I break out the trapped box.... or whatever but being an elf I usually "notice" the box is trapped... I kinda like the lesser potion idea.... might have a few made up I'm sure I can take care of that.....

    Bring back Magic Reflect to its true form!

    Makes no sense to have a spell that doesn't even do what the name of the spell is!

    What about Reactive Armor? Should be able to use that vs. dexers and either absorb X amount of dmg, or dmg the warrior back a certain %.

    EO + EX/FS is eff'd up. EO + Para is uber lame. Having 120 resist used to mean something. That you were pretty much paralyze free to a certain extent.

    Bring back trapped pouches!!! In Jux!!!

    It's sad how little skill this game takes to PvP. And for those that kill people by using efields, or efield + wall of stone is paaaaaathetic. Ya if you get caught in one, you've got issues. But seriously? Grow some bawls and get some actual skill to kill someone.

    And Cowboy... not everyone is a dexer that can concussion =)
