  1. Overloard

    1. Not gonna happen. Repeated suggestions of this have not piqued ACE's interest. 2, 3, & 4. These are already planned and ongoing. Some of that customization should keep going even after launch.
  2. Know Your Enemy - Official Discussion Thread

    These animal environment hazards look great! Please take the gold off their loot tables, though. If they don't wear clothing, they don't value gold either!
  3. ACE Q&A for October - Official Discussion Thread

    You're assuming a fixed season change rate. The length of a season in a campaign can (and probably will) be dependent on player census.
  4. Bestiary: Urgu - Official Discussion Thread

    I guess the race name, "Orc" was copyrighted? There's your Bacon Rune, Hillbilly!
  5. Bestiary: Wolf - Official Discussion Thread

    Wolves are pack predators, so they hunt in groups. I think it would be cool, and dangerous, for the entire group of wolves to have a proc chance to focus on the target of a single wolf that has engaged. The pack could be defined as all the wolves generated and governed by a single monster generator.

    Shouldn't they be hurling Axes, then?
  7. Pre-Alpha 5 Live! - Official Discussion Thread

    A hurlBAT is piercing, not crushing? This is yet another reason why weapon bonuses shouldn't be so closely tied to class, IMO.
  8. Crafting Skill Bonus Change for Fae and Stoneborn

    1. Maybe they are. High elves may be able to contest this if they were interested enough to share their records. 2. All the races seem to be enchanted in CF. 3. You may want to find a better phrase than "servicing the worlds". Someone will likely make sport of this target. 4. I already mentioned that Stoneborn are made of stone. I suspect that their beards just resemble tree roots rather than being wooden, otherwise they'd tend to burn up in the forge. None of this invalidates my statement, but you get points for sticking to your RP character.
  9. Crafting Skill Bonus Change for Fae and Stoneborn

    Since the stoneborn are made of stone, I would expect them to get bonuses in blacksmithing, stonemasonry, gem cutting, ore mining, and stone quarrying. That's a lot of bonus areas, but it makes sense. Runemaking should, in fairness, be the province of another race. Please share your reasoning why it's so obvious that stoneborn should be best at yet another craft. Remember that ACE doesn't really want too many players in any particular race, for any of the 3 focus areas.
  10. With the May Q&A Dungeons seem hard to do

    They aren't hard if ACE makes the entrance an interface to another server, just like they do with Runegates and Portals. Hopefully the dungeon servers would run concurrently with the source world server. Instanced dungeons are too easy for gold farmers to exploit. PvP > PvE
  11. Soft Launch

    Honestly, soft launch doesn't feel as fair as a wipe for commercial launch. Having said that, I honestly don't think the servers could handle everyone creating a new character for launch day and trying to get into new campaigns as well. The servers would also possibly have troubles recognizing VIP status properly that first day as well, with everyone going from automatic free VIP to skin in the game VIP. So long as soft launch doesn't lead commercial launch by more than a month, I don't think the difference will be too big a handicap. It's just one of those things that we'll have to live with, or not if this straw (combined with other minor drawbacks) breaks the back of your game tolerance camel.
  12. VIP - Priority access to all game servers

    I expect that this will be the biggest (presently) hidden advantage to VIP status on an account.
  13. Pre-Alpha 5 Live! - Official Discussion Thread

    Because it makes the account you care about the most so much more effective than a non-VIP account. Sure, many players will buy alt accounts for crafting and harvesting. Most of us already planned on it. But you're still going to use VIP tickets on your primary account. This change just means that those alternate accounts are less likely to carry VIP status after the first few months.
  14. Crafted Vassals

    OP, you'll have to recruit vassals by starting a guild or take over leadership in a guild. Once you have vassals, they can "craft" their crows by training skills, picking vessels (which can be crafted and leveled), and equipping gear (can also be crafted). It's sad that halite (rock salt) is difficult to obtain. Halite should be more common, and required in some cooking recipes, frost magic resistance, and witches' "nature magic" resistance.
