Enchanter Familiars (in General)

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] May 14 2009 8:10 PM EDT

Thats what this game needs...

one that casts AMF and one that casts DM
Giant Strength might be viable again
or Ethereal chains

I think this would be interesting.

Demigod May 14 2009 8:20 PM EDT

It actually doesn't seem like a bad idea to me. Right now, the front minion is often just a DM meatshield anyway.

Tattoo Blender?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 14 2009 8:33 PM EDT

Really nov, this would cause tattoo, let's be real for a second.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 14 2009 8:37 PM EDT

sorry, tattoo blender*

Not that this would be cost effective or that anyone would even do it...
But, hmm, I think I want to beat up (insert random character name that you can't usually beat..here) today. Hmm, but I'd have to change my strat...(click click click / changing familiar) ok... there, (beating of said above mentioned opponent) that's better.

As is, in order to change up Enchantments, you'd have to suffer a good xp loss usually (if your strat is well set in stone.. or steel or fire.. oh you get it) but in this case that would be easily changed.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 14 2009 8:39 PM EDT

You can do that right now j'bob; There would be no change. Just more options.

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] May 14 2009 8:39 PM EDT

these tats would be unchangeable you have to grow a new one everytime you would like to change your strat, i think it would start more people doing NCBs and would help the game advance

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 14 2009 8:40 PM EDT

I don't really like that part tal.

j'bob May 14 2009 8:42 PM EDT

"You can do that right now j'bob; "

You can change EO's and ED's without penalty right now?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 14 2009 8:46 PM EDT

No but you can change your strat with a simple change from one tat to another to beat someone else. Having trouble with a character with DBs, get a SF instead of a HAL.

so what if we had GS/EC familiars but only as lessers, that way you it would deter some from switching a 6mil lvl tattoo jsut for a strat change but this way it could never go back as a regular tattoo. that would inherritantly promote ncb usage

j'bob May 14 2009 8:48 PM EDT

Right, Art, I understand that.. .I was just talking about the Enchantments. okies.

Cube May 14 2009 10:24 PM EDT

Sounds pretty redundant

three4thsforsaken May 14 2009 11:08 PM EDT

too many familiars. Don't lke it.

There is really no reason why we need an ED casting familiar with RoS existing. And EO familiar has potential to become too powerful. A least with DDs and tank familiars the name of the game is to keep the familiar alive so they can be worthwhile.

Enchanter familiars have potential to give wayyyy too many levels and strategic potential. And if they don't, they are filling up a niche that other tattoos already fill.

We are already playing Familiar Blender. I'd like to see a new trend.

QBRanger May 15 2009 12:15 AM EDT


We are well past the point where CB is familiar blender.

They have too much concentrated xp, it is hard to keep up with minions.

Now minions are mostly support for familiars.

Unless we get a familiar only rescale across the board, it cannot change.

Demigod May 15 2009 12:22 AM EDT

I completely agree with DD & Ranger, but remember, with the N*B, minions are disposable, but familiars aren't. When I finish my NUB, I can use my familiar in a NCB. If there is a tat Nerf, there also needs to be a rolling bonus.

See how stealthily I hijacked the thread? That's called skill. Take notes.
