Innocence and Guards

XenthosXenthos Shadow LordMember Posts: 5,819 Transcendent
It used to be that guards were able to kill through innocence.  This allowed organizations to keep problem-novices from being too much of a nuisance.  A little bit ago, Crek removed and enemied someone whom was (apparently) decided to be a problem.  The following occurred:

A shadowlord widowrider draws a wicked blade and slashes it at Diaoda, slicing deep into her flesh.

A shadowlord widowrider orders his great spider to attack, causing it to lunge and slam its mandibles into Diaoda's chest.

Diaoda turns pallid and drops to the ground.

This was just a little spammy.  I'm kind of wondering why this changed... it seems a bit counterproductive to give problem newbies the opportunity to spam a nexus excessively after each time they pray.

(Please note that I'm not commenting on the specifics of this case, as I have no idea what this individual actually did / did not do, or why the action was felt to be necessary-- I am simply asking because, based on my past experience with problem-newbies, this change confuses me)

    I don't think it's protection against guards, per se. Aren't newbies protected against death from ANY npc?

    Newbies under a certain circle are unable to be killed for now. Maybe something needs to be instituted that bounced an enemied novice back to Portals?


    Also, what did she do in order to get enemied, out of curiousity?

    I'm not sure.  I walked in at the very end to check my totem, and saw only this:

    You are bonded with a totem at before the Master Ravenwood Tree for another ten months.
    Your totemic caretaker is Bloodsworn Calesta Ysav'rai.

    Diaoda leaves to the north.

    Apparently there was more, but like I said, I don't really know the context.  The point of the post is not really about that, more the invulnerability provided now.

    We've all been at the Master Ravenwood and seen you eating it. And by it, I mean whatever corpses you happened to come across.

    Yeah, it does look like it's the newbies-can't-die thing. If they do, they're just full refreshed, (I think, I've not been a newbie since the implementation of that) with a message that says "You just died, buddy! You'll want to be more careful otherwise, you'll die for real when you get past a certain level!"

    The code, though, from the looks of this log, seems to be a little funky. The newbie looks like he died to bleeding, which... probably should be covered under the mechanism as well?

    Solution would be to make this kind of fake death throw them to the portals room instead of just refreshing them where they stand, I think.

  • ShaddusShaddus His Imperial Altness Outside your window.Member Posts: 7,652 Transcendent
    Iirc, it does actually knock them off balance.

    And yeah, I agree with that.

    I was hoping he'd give a witty reply once he noticed the guards cant kill him.

    This makes me sad. I greeted the novice earlier that day and she seemed to be doing well by herself. Short for words, so probably an alt, but I always check anyway because we get so few novices and I want them to stay. Weep.
