okay just a few suggestions i've made in the past some of which had good support just wondering if verefix now being admin can help jon put in game. (General) notes Okay this next one i brought up ages ago. It requires a rewrite of a fair bit of the game but i believe from what i have heard and gathered from the numerous complaints from both tanks and mages reguarding massive nw weapons and the use of evasion it is the only way i can think of to bring a fair balance. Brand new idea for PTH The responses generated in the post were limited and did little to add any real imput i would like the current cb community to have another look assess the idea and discuss possible down sides and solutions to those down sides. I think its time we stopped complaining about game mechanics and become active in providing worthwhile solutions to percieved game imbalances, even if it means rewriting the game heck maybe its about time cb3 was developed. Everything i have said is only meant in a positive light and i wish it to be treated as such thank you and i look forward to all your worthwhile comments. P.S. please no complaints if u c a problem state it clearly and to the point and if u can provide a solution lets help jon make this the best game out there hey mates :)

Solution for evasion/PTH:
Weapon cap.

Solution for N*B:
Rolling bonus.

Let me be a bit more specific about the weapon cap.

Jon can make the cap some number, based upon the existing weapons if he wants. Based upon MPR.

Then he can see the damage said weapon will do vs xxx minion. He can also see the PTH vs said minion.

Then he can titrate evasion and magic damage vs the physical damage/PTH aspect.

Of course, the Weapon Cap would have to have 2 parts, a part of the damage and a part for the PTH.

This can be per minion, based on its total xp (like the way armor gives PR), or per the whole character.

It will be complicated, but I have all the faith Jon could do it.
