Out of Mana

Post by Cylex on Tue Apr 23, 2013 11:51 am

There are a lot of mobs that instantly drain the caster's mana, repeatedly. This seems like it might make the concept of solo impossible or nearly impossible for many casters. While I realize some encounters are just not meant to be soloable, it effectively takes casters out of many fights entirely. Would it be possible to look at this, and maybe adjust this to not happen as frequently?

This is indeed an issue on the caster standpoint. Repeatedly yesterday whilst fighting Nexona I'd get completely mana drained and just sit there twiddling my thumbs the entire fight while Cylex smashed her down.

While I'm not saying it needs to be removed entirely, something like what Cylex said would certainly help.

Aaryonar in NToV is another...I agree with Cylex. With mana regen the way it is, possibly just adjusting the frequency would be an easy balance fix.

I think this was an intentional implement (I could easily be wrong) because of how fast mana regen is. If you have a debuff that drains mana per tick, it'll keep your mana at 0 until it is removed. I think it may have been John's way of sticking to the original encounters but tweaked for this server.

I hope you are wrong Plutonium.

Taking away mana from a hybrid class cuts their DPS pretty badly.

I find it difficult to dispell while melee-ing a Boss NPC cause they hit fast and hard.

The mana drain is also pretty instant, rendering no mana to even dispell in the first place....

Can't imagine what would casters do without mana....
Punch?

Hehehehehehehe....

I'm not sure it's designed that way or not. Even if it is, the mobs I've encountered keep your mana at zero the entire fight.

Imagine if there were bosses that stayed invincible to melee the entire fight...Ouch!!

Of course now that it's been mentioned, I wanna make it a goal to kill Nexona with a h2h slap from Vampriss!! Smile
