    And it is indeed Stygian Abyss.

    Gargoyle race, huge new homeland (cringes from Masumatek) and dungeon, new crafting skill that allows you to choose the properties that go on items.

    New client, a development of KR which, supposedly, is KR as it should have been done.

    They are alot of fun, especially if you have a drunk guy acting crazy!!!
    (Wash, DC meet-up, anyone??:lol:)


    Gargoyle race- didn't they mention this at the DC meet-up over 3 years ago?

    huge new homeland (cringes from Masumatek) and dungeon- I think more than Mas are cringing!

    new crafting skill that allows you to choose the properties that go on items. :heart::danceb:

    However, will I have to use KR to get these things? :thumbdown:

    No. They said that UOSA will be for both 2d and KR.

    They also said that they are upgrading the client again... it wasn't clear if they were canning KR and starting over or if they were actually going to upgrade KR, fix it... with a new game-engine.

    Either way, KR the way it is and has been... is going bye bye

    Ya most of this isn't NEW at all, most of this was supposed to be released already. After all that was what the DC meet up was about. But to be able to Imbue craftables...... sure ill buy into this. I will take a 50% ecru with 1/3 casting and 8%LMC and 15%DCI thanks. sounds like this will be fine for the balance of the game.

    If everyone could make and have one, wouldn't that be the definition of balance?

    Gargoyles will have 10 control slots !!

    It really blows my mind how these guys design a game.

    flying full speed stealth gargoyles and they haven't even thought of dismount?
    throwing knives but haven't thought about if they will stack or not?
    7 char slots and they didn't think it would be a problem to have to create a new char for gargoyles, let alone siege(but I know siege isn't on their radar anyway).
    we don't know anything about how we are going to implement stone craftables, but stone will stack!!

    WTF

    Oh and my favorite part "we were going to ask a bunch of crybabys in UHall to have a vote about what to put in the game" WTF I guess they couldn't find a decent game design class so they are going to ask a bunch of amateurs what they should do.

    Coming right up. 500K pls!!!

    Crafter ftw... :D

    Although I think it´s gonna hurt the crafters on Siege more as the PVPers with crafter alts will only make their own stuff whenever they want... :(

    We´ll see what happens I guess...

    I'm pretty sure it would... NOT be boring... and if decent suits were easily made by crafters, that is awesome!!!

    People wouldn't be locking so much stuff down on their porches and actually experimenting with the item properties... they would be out and about, actually using the stuff they have.

    There will ALWAYS be people who don't have access to a crafter character... you will ALWAYS have a place to hang your hat.

    This is great news!


    And can you imagine? Now we'll be able to wear the types of armor that we WANT to, rather than what we have to...

    win win

    Spyder plays EQ2. Venekor (RPPVP), right?

    It's been mentioned that gargoyles can be dismounted (bolas, etc) and grounded.
     
  32. Hawkind

    Hawkind Guest

    Well they can be dismounted but for how long. is there going to be a delay (some sort of cast like an ethy) for them to fly again or is it just going to be a few seconds on foot. If it's the latter it would really change the pvp scene.

    Yes so the prices of things should be dropping, Every dexxer out there should have the absolute best weapon. And the game just became even more item based by allowing people the ability to choose their own propertys on items. Well see how it goes but I see this as being a HUGE problem once people start making weapons/jewlery/armor that allows them to play near prodo shard templates.... You will see the definition of gimp templates once this is put into the game. :scholar:
