Ben's Fun Balancing Thread

Postby Ben » Sun Nov 21, 2004 9:42 pm

I am doing a lot of item balancing this month it seems, so I will start posting here when I change things that may effect people's decisions.

Probably not a popular update, but the Amulets of Evilsbane and Righteousness have been changed slightly, as they were definately too bright and a little too powerful.

The changes are very small... both traded in their +1 to str for a + 1 and +2 to con, and both now give off 1 light instead of 2. They also now weigh 3 instead of 1. AofR has an extra point of AC for a total of 2. Nothing major.

There was a mistake in the duration of the UW of Courage. It was only lasting for .1 Marc. It was supposed to be significantly longer than that... and has been updated. Also with that update, the nature of the spell has changed slightly to accomodate another change that will be going in later to a different item.

This week, a lot of loot was changed. A few monsters who were giving too much loot or $ have been lowered, while many more were raised to balance this out.

A month or so ago, Weapon Primitives were greatly reduced. This is because people were getting their Ultimate Weapons fairly early on and fairly easily, and I wanted to slow that. The average person before this change would get their ultimate weapon around level 37 or 38. Now I am hoping for about level 41-45. Note that is still possible for the same people in their 30s to get an Ultimate Weapon, just that it will be a lot harder.

IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE POST:

Those looking for more weapon primitives might try hunting down elusive Green Crystal Guardians, who now ALWAYS drop a weapon primitive in addition to whatever else they are carrying.

Green Crystal Guardians also now drop dull crystals in addition to dull green crystals, although they are set so this is unlikely.

Note this is all true for creatures that respawn AFTER this post was put up.
