Istari Crossbow

know what i mean?

SNK3R April 16 2006 11:15 PM EDT

No. Care to elaborate?

A Bathing Ape April 16 2006 11:18 PM EDT

i was thinking it would reduced direct damage by 3-5% per attack. Similar to an axbow/exbow but to reduce mage effect.

We have MgS and TSA which already make a mage crippling tank strat, do we really need more?

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 17 2006 8:44 AM EDT

Aye. No more.

Would it hurt to have another Mage nerf!?

Tanks just took a nice nerf from the recent PL. I say why not think about having a Istari Crossbow? It prolly wont happen but wasnt a bad idea.

I am also in agreement that with the addition of PL tanks NEED something to make up for losing 2/3 rare ranged weapons. I mean... ouch.

and adding another nerfed item helps how?

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 17 2006 6:03 PM EDT

Helps by evening the playing field.

It would also be interesting see how many people would even use it.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 17 2006 6:04 PM EDT

How exactly does adding another DD reducing item level the playing field supposedly upset by PL?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 17 2006 6:05 PM EDT

You can have your XBoI if I get a skill that reduces the X on your weapon.

How about we all just give me Central Bank and call it fair?

MgS and AMF are already two large nerfs on mages. Both of them block a LARGE percentage of magic damage, and AMF even retaliates with the mages' own power. CoC can't hit in ranged, FB hits allies, and MM is weaker and doesn't strike in first ranged round. Physical attacks, however, can hit up to 3 times every single round, and weapons like the MH makes the attacker gain HP from the attacks!

Has anyone thought maybe Jon's changes that put nerfs on tanks means he believes that its the TANKS that are too strong?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 17 2006 6:32 PM EDT

MM now hits in the first round of ranged.

I don't see anything as being particularly overpowered ATM, I have to keep pouring nearly all my xp into FB or I lose, CoC folks still have to have some HP, and MM users need a nice balanced team.

Tanks still have a huge number of choices, and can easily specialize in mage killing. I don't see the problem, certainly not to the point where we need a XBoI. If this were to be introduced a x10 version should have a NW of around 20 mil.

I agree with novice, actually.

Wow, MM hits first round now? I must have totally missed that in the changelog, haha.

Ammon [The Black Tower] April 18 2006 11:44 AM EDT

Yep, MM hits in the first round, the last minion
