But doesn't it also means that sometimes you lose 0 to < the old 25 successes? I do understand Afa's point - oh yes, wizard magery, I love you! -, and I do agree that the fact that the game crashes a lot should be taken into account. But I also agree with Octar (elsewhere) that death could be a bit more penalised. Just not so much that it makes people stop hunting and wanting to go to dangerous places... But maybe the solution to that passes by getting a better server or changing the way hunting skills level by.
Above all, I'm all for measures that make counting and talking about game-mechanics less trendy (random chest pops, please!!). So yes, I do like that we don't know exactly how many successes we might lose. But maybe the range could be a bit smaller? (Is it even official that it goes from 0 to 100?)
And Jinker, I might become a druid if you add those pink tuskers. Maybe in a new tower looking like She-Ra's castle, with pink unicorns, butterflies and candy.
It's not 0-100. We wouldn't do that to you. I believe the range is now 15-35 and is on the average 25 as before.
There were some april fool's jokes with items but nothing big like Jinker wanted to do, it would have required a full update patch.
I can only say that I was not a happy camper yesterday, when I died more in one day, than in all the time I have been playing Obi. For Druids, we get hit TWICE! Not only did I have to re-level prime skills, but I also lost 3 very good pets. So now, I must go back into dangerous places and attempt to regain pets, and then work them to re-level them. Then, I will probably die in the attempt, so there it is... MORE success losses... And relogging is not always a doable thing, especially when the risk to step off of my body for even a second, could mean great and irreparable loss. Maybe we could get a Resurrect Pet spell at a higher level (Maybe 9 or 10) to help offset this double hit. (Pretty pretty please)
Gotta say this people. I got insane luck.. 3 deaths in a 24h span, and only dropped cooking from 5 to 4. And somehow my Meditation went up.
