Snipers in Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa, listen up! Friday Feedback is all about your beloved Torqueshell Rifle, and upcoming adjustments. The damage per shot is down, but the rate of fire is up. Overall damage rating is increased. Tabula Rasa Designer, Lee Ridout has this to say.

We would like the Sniper/TSR to be a long range weapon that can one hit minions of equal level and supply great damage and utility (see Target Painting’s armor regeneration shut-down) to more resilient targets. We also would like to see players better incentivized and rewarded for participating in, setting up and accomplishing what their character is themed to do. We are balancing our skills to reflect this. The sniper is about to reap the benefits of the upcoming ranger improvements as well.

Read the full details of the Torqueshell Rifle changes on the main site, and discuss them in the Tabula Rasa Community Forums.


Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
