  1. I'm strongly against a respec option. In a game promoting strategy and consequence, your decisions should have actual weight -- and not just the appearance that they matter.


    I'd be OK if you were able to buy back very small sums of skill points, but there'd have to be a considerable timer associated with it.

  2. and why would arrows need a time of life?

    aren't they arcing and eventually will reach the ground anyways?


    The way I interpreted it, the time of life dictates a theoretical maximum, where the distance traveled is a function of at least mass - and probably mass * power/skill. Not sure if arrows will have a 'true' trajectory or just a visual one, but based on what we've seen so far in terms of physics, I'd wager it's the former.

  3. Legionaire....support?....help me out here. Looks like we're gonna see a whole lot of Swole Patrol from people rolling Champions who want melee DPS.


    I imagine this is where disciplines will come into play when the game is fully fleshed out.


    i.e., they may start out with some centralized support skills, but you should be able to pick up some additional disciplines to further specialize yourself into melee DPS if desired.


    The Confessor 

    ...is our first damage-dealing caster. The confessor is all about firepower — both figuratively and literally. Thematically, she fits the "glass cannon" role, and is capable of dealing massive amounts of damage from a (preferably safe) distance. In addition to direct damage, she has a number of tricks and combos that revolve around either damaging her opponent directly, burning them over time, building up "sin" in her opponent (and subsequently “absolving” it through fire), or scorching the earth in a hail of Holy Fire.


    Well. Ayup. That sounds pretty awesome! Can't wait to see this in action.

  5. There are number of legitimate and thoughtful points made in this thread. I want to thank everyone who has remained on-topic and civil. It's clear that those of you who have care about the community, even if some of us disagree on what particular attributes of it should be championed.


    However, the very nature of the thread does (more than?) flirt with the whole "discussing/challenging moderator actions" mantra; and because the latest page or two of posts have become a little less constructive, I am going to lock this.


    That said, I'm going to make sure at least one or two ACE employees see it, ask their input, and have them unlock it if they see fit.


    Thanks for your understanding,


  6. I'm curious what the approximate scale is for these renders. JTodd mentioned using the doors as a reference point. We have a pretty good shot at the door of the building in the top image, and it looks to me like the ramp up to the ramparts is sized similarly.


    Can we assume a Legionnaire would take up maybe 4-5 adjacent tiles (along one axis) and a human would take 3-4?
