Question for admin and place for the following discussion/oppinions.
Are the rules this year still the same as HELP ASCENSION RULES or should we expect changes?

I had a draft envoy report up to change some of the Chaos/Final Ascension aspects to be less mob-intensive, but Ieptix said that it wasn't the added item count that was causing the lag. It's sort of difficult to pinpoint the issue when it's once a year.
I don't know what we can do to help deal with the lag monster. But if there's anything, any off the wall ideas for testing/figuring out what may be causing it.... I feel like we should do that. The last few ascensions have been personally extremely frustrating due to all of the lag.
I brought this up to @Ieptix asking if we could run some tests, and I think he was going to ask @Estarra. As Elanorwen said, I would also wonder if melds were the cause of the lag, or maybe some of the other passive effects (shrine healing, avatar exalt) that people stack to the max during these events.
So is the Staff an object?Can only trial/challenge winners effect it at all?Could a potentia- Ascendant/dreamweaver Envelope it?----YesI think anyone can get it, but it only gives points if someone who is a seal holder can get points from it.Possibly, but I don't think you can go out of phase with it. It would likely just bounce to a random room
All that said, if the admin were to disallow racial specialisations, in addition to disallowing non-common skill abilities, then that would even the ground a little more, yes. Because racial specs are tied to orgs, they can also fall under a similar argument as non-common skillset abilities. It is literally impossible, unpossible (etc) for a non Glom to be a shadowsinger.
Make it a real test of skill and give everyone the same charisma going in. Then the argument is moot!Is there a full list typed out somewhere detailing all the skills that are disallowed, for clarity sake? I've changed class since last year and would appreciate the reminder, since most of my defs I let my system deal with and don't stop and consider what they are doing (and I'm sure I'm not alone >_>)
