This is to all the people asking for a race change upon expansion due to the racial abilities.

You are all morons.

I chose my race based on what the racial abilities were sapose to be on launch. Of course they are going to add these abilities in later.

You should have chose your race based on what you wanted as their proposed racials. If you didnt do the research then thats not Aventurines fault. Deal with your choice or reroll.

For all of you that have only played this game since they made it 6x easier, i don't think you understand how much time and effort those of us that have been playing for a long time have put in.

Re-rolling is not an option.

Then adapt or die, as is the way of the world. Seriously. You put all that time and effort in to a character, racial abilities will not matter a damn.

When other people get a magic damage buff and I get a Nourishment buff... Its a big fucking deal.

I understand why people would like to see a race change, and I think they have valid reasons for it, but I don't think we have the 'right' to get one now, that we can demand it.

everyone who changes race with the current feature will lose months of character development, you dont want that in this game, it will fuck you over badly

I went through it too. Two times.

We do not know how this will work, not really. Can only hope that they havn't made humans become the 'get shit on' choice.

I actually hope for a chance to re-spec when the expansion comes.

I guess rerolling was more of a tragedy in times when hacks, exploits and skillgrinding drudgery was commonplace. Rerolling a char, after some exploit has been fixed and training skills then took months instead of days, was a major setback.

I guess nowadays, when someone refuses to reroll, it's more about sentiment for his character and time spent than anything else ergo player's own problem.

Problem with rerolling right now isn't the skills lost. It's the attributes (Strength, Vitality etc.) you lose and how heavily they impair a character. Having 200 health instead of 300+ is a major setback and vitality is still quite hard to grind in the higher stages of development. This is part of the reason why the game is so hard for noobies these days; they hit for so much less even if they get the skills and can only take a few hits before they are down due to such a low amount of hit points.

Other than that, the skills themselves are piss easy to get and train really. Essentials anyway.

So you rolled a human in hopes of being a bad ass spell caster with a magic buff racial?

That just makes you an idiot. I could have told you from the start that alfar would be the best caster choice.

And how do you know this food buff doesnt make humans over powered. Maybe it doubles the regen rate and duration.

And how do you know this is the only racial they are getting? Because I can asure you it is not.

No one read the lore, nor was it openly available.

And to be honest, 95% of the shit they said would be in the game isn't and most likely won't. So they picked racials to put in, fine, but don't penalize all of your loyal customers because you are an indecisive company that doesn't have the manpower to follow through on everything you promise.

I can keep shitting on you idiots with terrible arguements, but all I am seeing is "I am an ______ (race) and I saw a preview to my racials and don't want others to pick my race!"

11-10-2009, 21:18
well I pick my race (ork) coz of the looks and DFO was back then class free game and you were free to do what you like.. be mage be warrior etc..
I'm just hoping that this racial buffs won't be unbalanced so that you can still be mage whit dwarf and warrior whit alfar...

Pretty much this.

1. Thousands of people read the lore, just because you didn't doesn't make your point valid.

2. The lore was openly available to everyone, how can you cry that the devs "promised" 4 legged run, and on the same page, say that no one read the lore/previews? Cause thats the only area 4 legged run was mentioned.

3. 95% of the shit they mentioned wasn't in the game? Are you fucking kidding me?

Lore? What the fuck? If there was lore of any sort that would influence an arbitrary game changing update, it should have been readily available at the character select screen. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I can't exactly verify this without deleting my character, but there were no such lore notes.

I don't see why they don't just let you pick which ability your own character gets and do away with limiting it by race.

There was a whole little story about each race at the character select screen.

Try again.

Because that defeats the whole fucking purpose of having races in the first place. The only way this suggestion would have ANY merit would be if these 'bonuses' were called 'lineage', or 'family history', or 'upbringing'.

Anyone got if 4LR would be in for the mahirim? The spotlight sais:
Mahirim have always been swift of foot (or rather, paw).
So now we have increased movement speed or it would be the 4LR?

He later came in and said that it would most certainly NOT be 4LR. He apologized for any inconvenience the people's illiteracy caused.
