Re: old schoolers still playin?

Don't think I'll come back, the game is dying and german friends pressing me to join them on ESO. It's actually doing pretty well, believe it or not. Daybreak was recently acquired by a Swedish company (I forget the name), and they released the stats on all the DB games. EQ1 actually has around 66k...

Re: old schoolers still playin?

I actually started playing again a couple of days ago. It had been four or five years since I last played. First started in 2001, so I guess that makes me "old school", lol.

Re: Pets taking more damage since stat patch

The pet tanking nerf is real. Sancus and others have done some testing. The change seems to affect all pet classes, Mages, Necromancers, and Beastlords. Devs have been "meh" about it on the EQ forums.

Re: Pets taking more damage since stat patch

And, unfortunately, due to a couple of idiots, the thread turned into a "mages should be nerfed" argument. Well, hopefully the devs are now aware that the patch somehow reduced pets' ability to tank.

Pets taking more damage since stat patch

I noticed this when I did a Gribble yesterday (me and shammy box, pet tanking). Both 101 air and 104 earth (EM23) are taking more damage, especially on two pulls. It's a struggle for the healer merc to keep them healed on two pulls. Damage was very spikey. Guys in the serverwide mage channel think i...

Re: Pet now gets smoked on Gribble HAs

Had more trouble the second time around. Three pulls were a problem. Still managed to get the first and second HAs done.

Re: Pet now gets smoked on Gribble HAs

I did my first ever Gribble HA "Into the Hills" yesterday. I used the 101 air pet because I'm, well, 101 :D . Also was boxing a 100 shammy. Didn't have any trouble completing the mission, and I got several 2 pulls and a couple of 3 pulls. Named didn't spawn. Was using wizzy and healer merc...

Deathtouch

Deathtouch is an old game mechanic that hasn't been used since, what, Velious? IIRC, the amount of damage done by a deathtouch was upgraded at least one time. My question is, exactly how much damage does a deathtouch do now? Can a modern player character survive a deathtouch these days? Reason I'm a...
