    Just wondering:

    Is it possible to give existing training dummies resist properties (Say 70 to all) and show the damage we do to them when we hit them, so that along with training skills up to 25, we could also use them to test templates and skill configurations?

    Random thought!

    Actually, let me expand on this idea a bit to give crafters a bit of a market!

    How about training dummies available with different monster shapes and properties?

    For example, have a dummy with the graphic of a skeleton - He'd have all the properties of a skeleton (Well, not if you'll have max resists for testing, but you get the idea), so you could also test slayers and whatnot.

    Could have one of every type! Mages, Ratmen, Lizardmen, Ogres.. Be fun! And make for some interesting training halls! This is the Despise room, has all the monsters found there.. This is the Shame room. Plan accordingly!

    And you know, it's been so long since I've used one, make them able to be casted on too! Don't recall if spells work on them or not...

    That would likely involve too much work.

    Though just let us be able to set the resists of a training dummy and have it show damages, that would be good enough.

    So if you'd want to see how well you do with fire damage against something with 80% fire resist, just set it to 80% fire resist.

    Also do the same thing with archery ranges and make something that spell casters can practice on too.

    Being able to set the resists and properties would work too.. But if you can do that, you've already done most of the work.. I was just thinking of something more stylish and creative. Wouldn't think it'd be too hard to put up a scale of a graphic and replace the current one, but who knows?
