A Small Request (in General)

Just something I would like to see. Naming spells. I know, NW isn't supposed to be necessary for DD, and it's unfair and blah blah. But if you toned it down so it added a base amount of effective level to the DD, it would be cool. Just adds some flavor to the game, evens the playing field a bit between huge tanks weapons and DD. Oh, and it would be so cool to see my mage cast something -besides- what everyone in the world casts. Tanks get to hit the enemy with whatever they want. Why can't my mage blast them with whatever he wants, including a Storm of Rubber Ducks?

Humm....Rubber Ducks, interesting Idea :)

What if someone retrained? Or would the name apply to the team not minion and then could be trained all 4 maybe 5 minions...

Would it cost more USD to name?

Have a weaker effect?

Not bashing, just unsure =)

Would like to try to find a system to make naming equal to both mages and tanks. I'm not so hot with the math, so I won't presume to know. Also, I would like to see the naming kind of like a ... stamp if you will. If you untrain a DD, you get like... a rune (would be separate equipment slot) to equip on a mage, so you'd have it until it went away. Would also make the name tradeable, but you could make it untradeable if you wished. But would be cool to have players rent naming to each other.

Cool, that kinda makes sense, except it almost sounds like a supporter item to me ;-P

Spell naming yes yes yes yes!!!

Also, another small request. I saw it in FORS, but eh.

I want DD to count towards MPB. I -understand- your concerns with decay. But I've completely earned Undecided's Cone of Cold hit Ape [2378791] and -no- decay has ever hit that high. Other mages I'm sure feel the same way. If nothing else, can you make it so FB, MM, and CoC are calculated in it. Or create a new stat for it? Because, really, I want that pride. And I bet ALOT of mages do.

We're in a different age now and I believe that excluding mages from things like MPB is just an insult. Or... show me a decay that hit's for over a million damage. Or like I asked already, let it include everything but decay.

Let me know what you think.

We're in a different age now? *checks calendar*

MPB for DD doesn't make sense because you can just look at the highest effect.

According to the FORS.

I disagree quite readily, because the highest effect doesn't include the rest of the build -- just look at me and UC. Oddbird had the highest UC, but mine was much bigger than his. Why? I had better equipment.

CoI, AGs, and there can the level of a DD be seen? It's all about bragging rights man =D

Interesting idea about naming the spells.

I do like that, it makes it more custom to the user just like the battle cries.

And I've always been in favor of DD showing in the MPB.
