Oversize tattoos, part 2 (in Changelog)

AdminJonathan July 27 2005 2:50 PM EDT

After cache flush tonight, oversize tattoos' effect during battle will be capped at the character's max tattoo level. (And will continue to not gain xp.)

One question. If someone has an oversized tat and it's level it maxed at maxed tattoo allowed does any level above that still count towards pr?

WeaponX July 27 2005 2:55 PM EDT

yes.... been waiting for this 1

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] July 27 2005 2:56 PM EDT

Good change and good question Logan

AdminJonathan July 27 2005 3:00 PM EDT

yes, it counts towards PR

but in those situations tattoo PR is lower than it would be if it were trained XP so I'm not shedding any tears

(to fix this I would make tattoo xp count like "real" xp, which means it would give different PR depending on who equipped it, and I don't think that would be a popular thing. :)

maulaxe July 27 2005 3:04 PM EDT

even it if wasn't a "popular" thing, it would still reflect much better the effect that wearing the tattoo has. I would be all for that.

[Jedi] Danludar July 27 2005 3:33 PM EDT

YES!!!! one of the best changes ever

Gokhan July 27 2005 4:04 PM EDT

Good change...

[T]Vestax July 27 2005 6:23 PM EDT

That's much better.

What's pretty cool is that even though your oversized tattoo doesn't gain levels, as your mpr increases your max tattoo size increases, and therefore your tattoo's effect increases along as well. I find this very rewarding, and is in my opinion one of the best balancing changes of all time. Congrats Jon!

I have a question.

When you have an oversized tat equipped, does it add the full amount of PR to your character, or just what it would at the level it is functioning at?

Not sure if that makes sense, but I can clarify if needed.

Maelstrom August 17 2005 12:23 PM EDT

That was answered somewhere, maybe further up in this thread. I believe the answer is that the full level of the tattoo is what affects your PR.

Reebok August 17 2005 7:08 PM EDT

Yeah I experimented a little with a 1 PR char and you're right. That kinda sucks, why should you get the PR for it if you're not getting the bonuses?

Maelstrom August 17 2005 7:18 PM EDT

uh, to discourage people from using oversized tattoos?

Reebok August 20 2005 5:10 AM EDT

Uhh. Yeah but there's no bonus. There's no reason to discourage it because it adds no bonus vs. a tattoo of the correct size.

AdminShade August 20 2005 12:59 PM EDT

nothing that hurts me, nor that helps me :)

Shark August 20 2005 1:55 PM EDT

nothing helps or hurts you Shade..you are such a happy man :) nice work Jon. (v)oo(v)
