rambling about anything else, let's get some real news out there for
First up, the spell list updates are underway, starting this week with
the Blood Mage list, levels 1 to 25. I'll be posting this on the site
Tuesday. While I call it a spell list update, I've decided that these
are actually spell list rebuilds. I wasn't particularly happy with the
look of our current spell lists and have decided to make some changes.
The biggest change is that all spells will have their corresponding
spell icons added to the lists. It may not seem like much, but it's an
important addition. If I had to, I probably couldn't explain why, but
it really does make a difference to me. Maybe it's for ease of spell
recognition, or something else. If you happen to have a more coherent
answer, be sure to drop in and let me know!
Along with the above mentioned spell icons though, I'm also adding
additional information such as Blood Union increases (or reductions) to
the Blood Mage lists, etc. One point of contention here though is the
way spells are shown on the trainers, because let's face it... if my
main isn't quite 50 yet, there's no way I'm going to get all the
classes to 50. Why does this matter, you ask? Because if you don't
actually have the spell in question, there's no way to tell what the
energy cost, range, or duration of the spells are.
+ Wyvern = Happiness!
This is where you come into play! If you have a class at level 50, and
also have the desire/patience to do so, please send me an email here
your spell lists with the energy cost of each. If you don't feel like
doing all the spells for all 50 levels, (and believe me, I can truly
understand that) you can still help by even just picking one level
range and sending me those. Not only will you be helping me, but you'll
also be helping your fellow players out!
The other important item of note with this spell list rebuild I've
insisted on doing is due to the time involved for each rebuild, they'll
be coming out once per week rather than the twice per week as I had
originally planned. That means a potential time of 30 weeks for an
update of all the classes. It also means that a class you feel may need
some attention may not be updated for quite some time. If you think
your chosen class needs an update sooner than later, take the time to
let me know in this thread
In other news, this past Friday I put up a poll asking the community
which mount they were going to attempt to get and why. I wanted to find
out how many would base their desires purely on stats or if they would
be character driven. I was surprised (and happily so) to discover the
majority of players said they would choose their flying mounts based
upon character reasons rather than stats. Also of note, the wyvern is
currently in the lead for most popular mount choice!
As an evil necromancer that chose to be a lich rather than a wraith for
my undead form, I can't wait to have that wyvern!
