    Its ridiculus how powerful this item is, eat one every 20 seconds? *shakes head*

    The cooldown used to be 2 minutes. Atleast make the timer 1 minute.

    Necromancers and Mages have their curses pretty much rendered useless and a waste of mana.

    I think things are fairly balanced right now when it comes to Mage v Dexer and changing the timer on apples would maybe unbalance things a bit.

    If anyone says they can't compete as a mage against an archer or dexer you should come to Europa and see how some of the mages on our shard roll :thumbup:
  3. Im gessing he just got his butt handed back to him and now he wants to cry about it. A mage who cant kill anyone coz they can eat an apple every 20 seconds is a poor mage by anyones standards.

    Next thing is he will be crying due to the faction players being able to eat an apple, take a faction bandie, eat an apple, take a faction bandie.

    Mages are way over powered as it is, if you cant kill anyone with your mage, its time to change your template.

    Stop QQing about it

    SORRY WHAT?!?!?!?

    You obviously dont play a mage!!!

    The general tactic for a dexxer is...get cursed, eat apple, get cursed again, run until you can eat another apple, rinse and repeat, all the while (if archer) taking pop shot ar ignores until one hits and the mage has to heal...then chain ar ignore(even worse, disarm/bleed/moving shot, ar ignore).

    That comment is obviously from a 3button playing temp (4 if you count the apple macro you use...over and over and over and over again)

    Yeah it's a little silly when a skilled mage who's been playing for years can't kill a dexxer, on europa a lot of the skilled mages have had to resort to playing a dexxer/archer. I'm holding onto magery with a shoestring by using a weird template and a v weird suit thats completely tailored against dexxers. After 8 years of playing a mage, i've just created an archer cos i feel i can no longer compete with archers having such uber balanced bows etc.

    End of all mages in fel?

    It is a bit hard playing a mage 1v1 against a dexer if they are good that is. Because the dexer can always run away, so it's hard to get the kill unless they don't run in time. But a group of mages is still by far the most powerful template to play. 4 mages against 4 dexers should drop the dexers fairly easy with timed drops and good x-heals

    Always had this question not sure if its meant to happen so ill ask it.

    When u mortal someone and they eat a apple u cant remortal them till the original timer wears off. U can use the mortal special but the people arent mortald and can still be healed chug etc.

    A mage on the other hand can recurse immediately after the person eats an apple.

    I do agree with op though apples need to have a much longer timer.

    Archers would just spam mortal again, so its a no win situation.

    I think the problem is this:

    Apple every 20 second
    Faction bandy every 10 or 15?

    If times right, you can be removing curse every 10 seconds, if you interrupt a mages casting with a weapon swinging at max speed, they have to stop to heal, recast those spells, etc. I for one don't generally die to dexers on my mage, but have a hard time killing them because I am constantly being hit with a bokuto, or a dart, and having to stop to cure or recast.
