    So I pulled a shield in shame that was:

    Brittle
    Unable to be Repaired
    25 Soul Charge
    Reactive Paralyze
    5hci
    20dci
    30damage increase



    Is it just be, or is reactive paralyze a bad mod to drop (maybe i got a rare mod to drop, i dunno)

    Seems like you would destroy an opponent without resisting spells or that is not in stone form. On what skill level is the reactive spell based?
     
  3. Reactive Paralyze is already on the Boura Tail Shield. If it were so powerful, wouldn't this be a desirable shield, too?

    Umm... just exactly what does this do and what are Soul Charges used for?

    Soul charge gives mana based on damage you've taken.
     
  5. *scratches head*
    So... what's the difference between Soul Charge and Mana Leech? Just a non-weapon based mana leech?

    Mana leech returns mana based on damage you deal to something. Soul charge gives mana based on damage done to you.

    Because that shield has no other mods worth a crap. Reactive paralyze works very well, it just sucks to hold a shield when that is all you are getting out of it. When you can get other really nice mods like soul charge, the dci, the hci, maybe you could even get a FC mod drop, this shield would become crazy.

    soul charge works on the damage you take. So if you were to take say 35 damage from an armor ignore, holding a shield with 25 soul charge, you would receive 8.75 mana back.

    Last time I looked at Reactive Para it required you to actually parry the attack & then it was only 25% of the parried attacks made the Reactive para go off...

    They have it spawning on ...
    Two handed Melee weps, Bows , Sheilds.. (I hope they took off the parry req lol)

    One would hope that they did that... and yet the only thing you mentioned that it wouldn't work on is the bow. You can parry with a melee weapon with bushido.

    25% chance to paralyze them if you parry the blow. do you know how often you parry a blow with 120 parrying? Quite a bit actually.

    this just goes with my belief that splintering weapon should not be a mod spawning on weapons either.

    Have you tested how reactive paralyze functions in PvP with bushido? Does it function at all?

    Also, splintering on a bow with velocity could be problematic. Does damage from splintering trigger spell plague?

    35% to Block with shield if you max it...
    or
    40% to Block with a 2-handed Wep if your 120 Bush....


    Either way the fact that Reactive required a parry 1st & then that it was such a low % to "fire" even after a parry made it not worth it imo.... Ah well.. if they have it spawning on bows perhaps they are changing how it works so we will see....
     
  14. I'm trying to understand this, since I haven't PvP'd in years.

    Let's see... 35%-40% chance to Parry with Bushido, 25% chance to fire off the RP effect, and max swing of 1.25 seconds...

    1.25 seconds / (0.35 to 0.4) * 0.25 = 12.5 to 14.29 seconds, on average, doesn't seem like a lot to me.

    Is the para breakable with damage or xploding box?

    Not worth it?

    that small chance you opponent could be paralyzed could mean everything!

    I tried the boura tail shield before. The paralyze goes off more than you would expect. It's just not good enough to give up pots for.
     
  18. You are an idiot. I am asking questions trying to understand, and you are discouraging it?

    I guess you were a PvP expert before you ever started to PvP?

    Eh, anything that prevents you from using pots isn't worth it to me being as pots have become as extremely overpowered as they are now. I mean, half of my templates would become useless without potions...the same can be said for the majority of dexxers these days. Now if it was on a weapon with decent specs I would definitely consider it.

    There are macros for dexers to remove the shield at a time of your choice...Reactive paralize is extremely effective for ranged dexers. You can get a double AI pretty easily while fighting someone that just running shots the entire time. Or think of a SDI/parry focused mage who gets a full dump off and the shield proc's... there's time for one more flamestrike... I'd say that's useful.

    Assuming the above is correct, that would mean that if you have 120 Bushido and a Reactive Paralyze two-hander, anyone hitting you would have a 10% chance of paralyzing themselves with each hit.

    I'm really NOT a PVP expert, but that sounds decent. Maybe not world-shattering, but not something to be scoffed at if it turns up on a halfway decent item.

    Wow, I am glad to see HCI on shields again tho. Granted 5 is a little low but still good to see it back.

    Reactive Paralyze = a 30% chance to stun an attacker When you Parry.
    Soulcharge = damage taken absorbs into mana back

    That's a pretty bad-ass shield.

    Some people in fel have a script that makes their trapped box go off as soon as they're paralysed anyway, even before they realise it. Apparently this is not bannable since it's been going on for years.

    What you got with your scripts? I would say 80% of the players minimum using the trap box by hand and this is reaction based, like in any other game.

    Assist+UO, it's a few different macros.
    1. Disarm Left Hand (UO MACRO)
    2. W/e Pot you want to chug
    3. Arm left hand (UO MACRO! just because if you get disarmed while not wearing a shield you can at least rearm your shield with the UO macros, otherwise you can't with UOA till the disarmed timer's finished)

    I hope you don't really believe in what you are saying. i know entire guilds who run that script because they are afraid of losing face if they get killed.
