  1. Day of entropy

    Why? No bags would poof the entire day only relocate... meh.
  2. new spell 'fight'

    Of all the new spell possibilites proposed over the years, this one is pretty far down on this list of practical additions to the game. Such a thing exists in classic D&D... Charm. You only need to cast on one creature. Even if we change this to the classic Charm spell, the applications to EL are troubling. As others have pointed out you really have to look at new additions from the 'how can this be abused' aspect. and being able to charm a casty is bad. But we can add immunities for bosses, you say? Well, sure... let's add more restrictions to the point it can't be abused... then it's useless.
  3. Harm is not a cheap spell. Being a mage is not easy. Sorry. A more better solution (to a largely non-existent problem) would be to alter the alembic recipe to give multiple products, or to not require EFE (make it a serpent stone, or a banana, or something).
  4. New Subforum Suggestion / Spam

    Uh, no. If you want to spam just write private messages to yourself... I bet you might even be able to count to one hundred.
  5. Assorted update ideas for Radu

    New Mob Doesn't really matter what. Just a new mob.
  6. Yes, carrier pigeons. Given the worldly nature of the EL playerbase, having a mail service would be quite helpful at times. Let players mail eachother messages, gc, or items via carrier pigeon (or stagecoach, or whatever). Charge a fee for sending things, perhaps proportionate to their weight in EMU (since more EMU means more carrier pigeon needed to deliver). Charging by EMU would eliminate having to value each item and would discourage people from mailing huge quantities of things. Additional pricing strategies could be set up to help combat spam. Such as increasing the price per mail sent per in game #day. Putting a hard-fast limit on the number of messages would also work, but in my opinion is less desirable.` Add new NPCs to mail (there's plenty of space for new NPCs) `since most of us have the storage NPC chat bypassed (though I suppose sto keepers could serve this purpose also) Last, if the recipient has the sender on #ignore, then the item/message will not be seen in inbox. Also, require a skill that is not oa to be level 40 or higher in order to access the mail service in order to help combat spam and ignore override.
  7. Negative session hours

    Weird things are now happening... I accidentally moved, and cannot sit any more, nor can I spin (ins/del). Sorry blueap, I just don't see that the tabs are off, if I adjust the things it looks worse.
  8. Negative session hours

    See picture: I have encountered this bug a few times, but that's the furthest number from 0 that I've seen. I'd guess that at 600 hours (or near it) your session timer flips from positive to negative. I've attempted to get back to positive session time, but usually I end up crashing in one form or another (EL crash, computer crash, power failure, wrong button pushed, etc.) Let me know if you need more info... I'll try to get an approximate time of crash of this client. lol
  9. New Instances

    2 New instances: 40-60 instance - Learning instance Purpose - get people going on instancing so they are better prepped for later instances This instance should be viewed as low risk, low reward. If you die without a brick in this instance you simply return to the start (you still will drop things). if you die with a brick you return to start without dropping things (and lose the brick). Map - Ice Minimum team of 3 Cooldown - 150 hours (Seems like cooldown is map based) 1 available map Wave 1 - Male Orc x40 or Male Ogre x30 normal drops Wave 2 - Special Gargoyle x15 or x20 mirror perked 500 hp drop up to 500gc (average ~100gc), he, sr, no rares Smites summons Wave 3 - Special Goblin x 2 5000 hp drop up to 5000 gc (average ~2000gc), he, sr, no rare Wave 4 - Feros x4 Normal feros drops Wave 5 - Special Skeleton x2 Mirror 10k hp drop up to 10kgc (Average ~5000gc), 2x REG, orange, 2x bronze sword 60-110 - Newb WTF Purpose - take bricks from lower leveled instancers, and provide for a challenge requiring teamwork Map - Dungeon Minimum team of 8 Cooldown - 96 hr mandatory (same as current WTF) 2 available maps Wave 1 - 5x of every normal monster up to and including Yeti Wave 2 - Nasp or giant? Second swamp already does this. Wave 3 - 2x Polyphemus or Labagiu Wave 4 - 1x Red Dragon, or 2x LDP, or 4x LDB Wave 5 - 3x Doom Bunny Eva, mirror, glow, buffed tank rabbit build (high damage but perhaps less attack, very high def) 40k hp Heal each other and follow each other Similar behavior to heal summons and summons in general, respectively Summons fluffy rabbits at random times Up to 60kgc Oranges, 1x grape, or bananas Binding stones or weapons of some sort (Bronzies?) RIGs 5% chance for nexus removal (there's 3, so 15% total) Basically the 4060 instance should be viewed as an instance training grounds. Nothing there is much of a challenge, but would require at least a bit of teamwork and organization to get through (or at least started). At the same time most anyone should be able to get through it, letting less experienced players get their feet wet. The 60-110 instance should be hard (if someone has more experience than I do at the upper end of that range, please feel free to suggest other options), and require different types of players. Obviously strategy would vary depending on the team, but wave 1 to 3 would be a fairly typical bash-n-smash. Wave 4 would let a specialist ranger or mage shine. And wave 5 would definitely require teamwork to complete efficiently (luring 1 mob away from the others without having them follow then keeping them away, dealing with adds, etc) Drops are good here, but final bosses in particular are more item based than gc. Guarantee a fruit drop and binders/weapons, decent chance for RIGs, and low (but multiple) chance for nexus removal (could theoretically cap it at 1). Monsters suggested are just suggestions. The main ideas here are a 'super-noob' instance for 40-60 and a 'newb-wtf' for 60-110.
  10. Negative session hours

    Uhh...My tabs are off? I'll have to wait for someone to compile a mac version of your client updates in order to try and make sure it goes to 1193.
  11. Control Rosto Prices

    Re: Mini-rosto Make either male orc or skeleton token do the effects of both tokens. Make the other of the two be exchangeable at a rate of 10-15 tokens to 1 mini-rosto Re: Rosto Price I've never bought rostos from the shop, but $1/rosto is a far more tempting price than $5/rosto. Radu could surprise us all and make rostos a NPCable item, but I don't see it happening either.
  12. Carrier Pigeons

    Thanks Vino, I didn't know mercator was getting such a function (: I think a very loosely similar function exists in EternalBroker, if he's still online. While both of these are pretty neat features, having them restricted to the location of one bot makes them less useful than what a game wide mail service would provide. The feature that Mercator has where he relays messages to an app however is very cool, and perhaps some thing similar could be integrated into the proposed system and the official EL droid app through notifications. While it would be less convenient to use the above vs. Mercator's current relay system, being able to send longer messages is a bonus as is having it be integrated into the official (droid) client.
  13. While we're at it... why not display a quick overview of each character's stats when you select them? Just a simple (heh) list of p/c/r/w/i/v and all skill levels would suffice if possible.
  14. Carrier Pigeons

    There are quite a few people I would trust with such a system, and quite a few I would not. The point is irrelevant because this would not be meant to replace normal trading. If you don't trust anyone... don't use it as a trading system. The current one will still be there. Uh... no... You still have to go to sto and/or to a mail npc... And if you're getting charged by the weight, you're not likely to send 1000s of iron via pigeon. Actually, I want more people to spend time helping new players. Making it easier to do so might get more people involved instead of the same old faces in @@1
  15. Carrier Pigeons

    It's not meant to replace most trading and isn't the same as trading a bot... It could replace/supplement small trades where both parties trust one another to send payment so they don't actually have to meet. It could be used to send gifts. It could be used for guilds to 'pm' the same message to multiple people (without items attached, probably) It could let people who are often not online at the same time trade one another (assuming trust) It could let you send longer messages than mercator allows. Not everyone is as terse as you. With longer messages, mini-guides and things could be sent to new players (particularly those on android) to give better help. (it can be difficult to chat on droid, and can be difficult to access the huge variety of help sites available to those on the full client). Furthering on helping newer players, giving them items (and advice) would be more convenient. They don't have to be frustrated that they can't get to wherever the other person is, and the non-new player can quickly get back to whatever they were doing. Should I continue? Sure, it won't make radu profit directly, but quality of life improvements (even if small) could help retain some new players who would then decide to purchase some of the other services radu provides.
  16. Unable to Harvest occasionally

    For amber/dung/other high level slow things harvesting at levels much under recommended it's easier to notice... Whether it's correct or not, but typical harvesting behavior appears to be that after an event (or more generically any sort of stop [even player produced like eating a food while harving]), you are forced to wait until you would have successfully harvested the item in order to be able to harvest again. For low level stuff *shrug* is spooky.
  17. Unable to Harvest occasionally

    Are you sure you are not just on the 'cooldown' associated with harvesting some of the higher level items at levels much lower than the recommended? (amber, dung, yew, cinnabar, to name a few).
  18. Assorted update ideas for Radu

    Any of the new mobs that have been suggested recently (or otherwise) New daily in similar style to Novac's quest... A NPC tells you to kill a specific critter (say a rabbit) on map X, then either you return to NPC for next target or popup directs you to next target maybe a deer on map Y. Continue on until (if possible) a timer runs out, or you tap out of the progression at the NPC. Could start on rabbit and continue all the way to blue dragon. I say put it on a timer so that people are in a hurry... bad things can happen when people are in a hurry (possibility of bricks from a daily???). Reward scales with how far into the progression you get. Upgrades for the droid client would also be cool... provide better retention of players that start the game there.
  19. Poly in 6080 instance

    How long characters stay in is mostly determined by the player. I personally like the challenge that staying in this range poses outside of instancing, so I've never left. There's a handful of others like me, but for the most part, this instance range is blown through pretty quickly. Adding a poly might make more players stay, or might make players who would have skipped it altogether consider running a handful. I don't think many people have such issue with 80100, with chance for a dragon blade there it's hard to complain about drops. On variety in 80100 someone more knowledgeable than me can provide better input.
  20. Poly in 6080 instance

    It has been a bit on this. I've done a few more of these instances, and the variety would be nice. Can we add this? Adjust the drop table on the instance version of the poly if you must, but a random boss selection would make this instance a lot more interesting
  21. Help with mixture's calculations

    So far, other than the things you already know about, I still haven't been able to find any errors. Neat tool and excellent work!
  22. Cannot open application..

    Awesome Ben. Glad got resolved. See you in game Cody. feel free to drop a pm. o/
  23. Cannot open application..

    I moved the entire folder into applications, though I don't see why dragging only the app would make a difference. You've probably tried already but... Try extracting/unzipping directly into application folder, or not moving it after unzip?
  24. Cannot open application..

    Ouchu... problem is above my paygrade, sorry. Seems like you're missing a file somewhere (not sure how)... but that file-path seems like gobbledigook so, I'm not sure what to tell you.
  25. Cannot open application..

    You probably have the same issue as this thread: Basically the 'fix' is reboot your computer, try again. I find that starting EL from the server chooser is often better as well (and you can easily open multiple clients that way). Try using it instead.
