Shields (in Changelog)

AdminJonathan January 31 2006 11:26 PM EST

Base AC on all true shields increased 5 points, with a corresponding decrease in upgrade costs. As usual, the difference has been applied to existing shields, with a refund for anything left over. Penalties to DX and magic increased by one point.

Buckler of Mandos gets a 2-point increase in AC; no changes to bonus/penalties. MgS completely unchanged.

Will the money come back to me from ones in rentals when I get them back? or does the person renting it get it?

Awsome!!! Lots of ST % boost on my tank!

sssimmo February 1 2006 12:50 AM EST

Actually, just to clarify, a +10 BoM still give 10% boost?

Jon "Buckler of Mandos gets a 2-point increase in AC; no changes to bonus/penalties" to answer your question sssimmo

QBPixel Sage February 1 2006 2:01 AM EST

This calls for wiki changes. I've started it off by editing the list of armor pages.

Doc [girl power] February 1 2006 2:13 AM EST

When I equipped my MS, I no longer got the bonus to DX from my EC and EBs

I should be getting +20 from those and -6 or -7 from the shield.


AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 1 2006 2:15 AM EST

were you perhaps using a two handed weapon and a ranged weapon?

AdminShade February 1 2006 6:46 AM EST

updated the wiki pages to reflect all recent changes.

and TMDoc, you get a penalty for using a 2 handed weapon also.

AdminJonathan February 1 2006 9:09 AM EST

mikel: yes, money from rentals went to the real owner, not the renter

Relic February 1 2006 3:25 PM EST

*Yawn*, come on Jonathan, let's shake things up a bit more than minor Shield changes. :P

PirateKing February 1 2006 3:36 PM EST

I could run around in circles, screaming "DOOM" and frothing like a lunatic at the changes if you think it would help, Mattrim. :P

YNM February 1 2006 3:37 PM EST

Where are the changes!!

Just thought i would ask.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] February 1 2006 5:15 PM EST

:( Change month is over, no more changes now... Only three posts, the most unloved changemonth of CB2! ;)

AdminJonathan February 1 2006 5:52 PM EST

Plus the four in December that I did because I knew I wouldn't have much time in January...

Some people always need something to complain about. They can go play in the back of a Pinto.

YNM February 1 2006 5:59 PM EST

I'm just complaining about the lack of tradition around here...where are the awesome items?

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] February 1 2006 6:03 PM EST

Oh well we will get over it I think. /Me prepares his stat for next change month.

[T]Vestax February 1 2006 6:15 PM EST

We've had less changes before. It's just that few people disagreed with any of the changes this month.

TheKing February 1 2006 9:29 PM EST

lol "They can go play in the back of a Pinto."

chappy [Soup Ream] February 1 2006 9:32 PM EST

Changes look good ... and this IS the first changemonth I made it through without having to adjust anything on my strat :P

/me is happy

Xiaz on Hiatus February 1 2006 10:19 PM EST

I can sense that not soon after this change the infamous 'Shield Throw' skill will be introduced. I can't wait!

YNM February 2 2006 4:21 PM EST

"I can sense that not soon after this change the infamous 'Shield Throw' skill will be introduced. I can't wait!"

And then i start a NCB character called Rygar!

[T]Vestax February 3 2006 1:18 AM EST

I get that joke. And because I get it I'm sure I'm dating myself. The shame of growing older.

Oh, well. There is still so much more to look forward to I suppose. Like an awesome new shield throwing skill!
