Subj: Upcoming Changes
I'll be releasing the following updates to warriors this coming Monday,
based on the recent Knighthood special report:
o Remove the current effects of the calcise and dendroxin poisons.
o Change cavalier maul to 2 critically wounded limbs, 2 heavily wounded
limbs, and 1 mutilated limb. We'll continue with tweaking the
requirements here if needed.
o Change Cavalier guard to attack a random limb, dealing wounds.
o Remove third-person message from assess.
o Remove balance costs from wounds/wounds simple.
o I'll be adding a global scaling factor for knight damage that I can
tweak in game, allowing for quick/easier adjustments to damage.
o Increase the ice curing delay for mutilated limbs/critical wounds.
Will be monitoring this to ensure it's not unduly harsh.
o Scale up writhe time from impale based on gut wounds.
o Re-scale everything wounding up by 5x (e.g. max 100 wounds, etc.)
o Following from the previous point, change 2h wounds to deal extra
wounds over 1h per round. We'll start at 12 wounds per hit, and adjust
from there as needed.
o Increase bleeding from pureblade carve, scaling to wounds.
o Change blademaster's stab to a 1h modifier.
o Remiss changed to deal up to two affs, along with a short stun when
the effect lands.
o Make pyrotoxin afflict with burns even when the target has the frost
defence, though at a reduced amount.
o Change haymaker to a damage attack scaling with total wounds.
o Change damaged limb symptom lines to indicate which limb is damaged.
o Make bonecrusher smashleg bruising scale steeper with wounds.
o Change pulp to not be a set damage increase based on wounds, but
instead have it scale up continuously with wounds.
o Tweak up bruising amounts overall.
o Remove relapsing; change anerod to cause a timed delay (4-6s) of the
last poison the target was hit with before anerod.
o Reduce bleeding needed for exsanguinate, but add the internalbleeding
aff as a requirement. These will be adjusted as needed.
o Add a new modifier to pureblade that splits the attack's damage
between health and mana.
o We'll also be updating the flavour lines for most of the modifiers,
though these will not be immediately included with the above changes.
Thanks go out to Rivius for his contributions of these new updated
