Suggestions / Mob Stickyback?
Why does every single mob in the entire game has the same if not more speed than every player whilst sprinting.

Once you get into melee range with a certain mob your choices are to either begone away or mount up and then run away then despawn your mount and get back into the fight, unless my opponent has legs as thick as a house like the Beastman Devastators or the Menhir Sentinels then I can't see why every single mob from Goblins to Elementals can outrun me? It's more of a trigger when you're trying to outrun a mob in melee and it can hit you in the back about 7 or 8 times in a row before their AI decides to abandon you?

Bugs & Feedbacks / Re: Gathering Grind?
Yeah it takes a long time to level up. Still, 75 skill and mastery a few weeks after launch is fine by me.
I don't mind it THAT much because I'm getting a lot of ore and rares and I'm doing it whilst I multitask but jesus christ this feels grindier than anything else thus far.

I also think the skills gains are absolutely retarded in comparison though.

Bugs & Feedbacks / Gathering Grind?
What's with the grind with this? I've been hitting nodes for the last week and have just hit 75 mining and got mining mastery, the levelling makes absolutely no sense though, I've gone from 1-40 mastery from 75.00 to 75.20 mining but just getting to 75 mining took forever, it would take at least 80-90 node hits for .1 skill point which at 10 seconds per meant at least 2 hours 13 minutes (of constant hitting) for 1 skill point at 70+

Some guy named Van Darkholme somehow has like 90 mining over 1 week ago and I can't even fathom how that's possible considering I've been hitting nodes for ages and have barely obtained it, god forbid anyone looking at getting Fishing Mastery.

Bugs & Feedbacks / Re: Advanced Mine
Mines like Talpec and Frost Coast are Theyril mines.

They give Theyril ore but they're not that useful or wanted because the rarity.

If you login you can boot your character out of the game (you get Lost Connection to server (2)) and then you can effectively login again and it'll work.

Bugs & Feedbacks / Re: Losing control when mounted
Had the same exact issue where I was riding my mount and I couldn't go left or right or even stop and I kept tabbing in and out of GUI mode but nothing was happening, it was basically saying stuff about unsheathe weapon and unsheathing but I had a pickaxe out... was really confusing, eventually stopped when I hit a rock and the mount was forced to stop.

General Discussion / Re: Moaning
Obviously I'm moaning that the Hasten Spells, Flames of Vengeance, Disintegrate Meteor Strike and WoF effects in my signature don't apply anymore

Trade / Re: WTB / WTS list
Can't travel to Niff due to the distance but I live in Espenhal, but I'll take all your reagents for Arrows if you could bring it down to me?

I'm a Mahirim so I'm more than happy to meet at a chaos bank in wolflands if needed to compromise.

What worries me is how ahead some people are, I'm 60/60/50/50/30/55 in stats and I feel super behind.. I am at 73 Archery with my highest schools being 28 Air and 50 LM

If I try to level without power hour it feels really slow even on Gardorocs, hell I shot about 1500 arrows into a Gardoroc with Power Hour and got 3.5 archery... once I hit 75 it won't be an issue but the initial grind is a joke... A lot of Epoch players are insane right now, some of them have 50 intensify Air Magic and I'm like what the fuck?

Dude, don't make me list my stats...

My str/vit/wis are only high because I've just been hitting trees 2-3 hours a day or so with movies on and I still feel weakkkkkk

It's kind of hilarious how hitting a bunch of mobs with melee for 30 mins gives me less than 10 mins on a tree... that shit makes no sense

Lmao my sleep cycle is ruined by my power hour and having to use it.

Was up until 2am and realised I had to power hour so I had to power hour my Archery the entire hour otherwise it feels so wasted, a charge system would be great as not everyone can play every day especially for the whole hour in one go.

It reminds me of LoL's horrible master system where you have to play daily or you start to decay and not everyone can play every day with a working life, family, kids, other priorities, etc.

While i understand your fears there is much content to discover. Sepcially for new guys. Lets see how it turns out.


I agree that they somehow didnt adresse the problem of items losing value when new tiers are unlocked.

Easy fix could be the need of lower tier items to craft higher ones. 2xR0 Bows+some Mats=1xR10 bow.

Could alternatively have a socket system where you can use old items and depending on your "Scavenging" skill to reforge into new ones.

Would be good to socket 4-5 r0 bows and make 1-2 r10s with it, even if you didn't supplement the entire cost, contributing the items will be good, or salvaging the items for a chance of ingots / wood, I'd prefer the former although the latter could be nice if you gank a lot of players and can salvage their gear for rare ingots etc.

What we generally need to have is a trading hub that extends beyond Chaos Cities or NPC Cities

* Needs to add a "neutral" city where everyone can go and buy and sell with guard towers enforcing rules, similar to blue cities but there's only a bank and a marketplace there and anyone leaving or joining the city will have 20-30 seconds of protection (to avoid getting completely mobbed on the way in or out) would add a decent area to meet up and could lead to PvP in the surrounding areas, could be abused for the safety though but as mentioned there needs to be NO vendors or anything to astray this.
* Tax is added after the sale not during the post
* System similar to the GE in Runescape where you can list a "buy item for X" and it'll automatically buy those items when listed for that price. e.g. "Buy 1000 mandrake for 2g" and if anyone puts it up for that then you get the sale.
* Markets in player cities so clans can do trades with eachother, possibly link all clan city markets together to avoid going long distances (e.g. Calfardar to Tiquiya)
* Mounts are quicker on roads by 50%
* Carriage or Caravan Mount that can carry lots of stuff but moves slower and cannot be used in combat

Baradron is the best for grinding up fire magic. I'm sure it's pretty contested tho.
There are couple of forest golems there, those are pretty decent too.
Elf shades/wraiths are vulnerable to almost all magic, fire included. Tons of them on yssam.

Nobody farms Baradons because they drop a grand total of like 100 gold of value in items. Not worth for a fire mage, or anyone else. Nerfed into the ground.

Go farm wildtribe mages, you will gain positive on all regs minus sulfur (10-25? ea), and come close to breaking even on that. + Steedgrass

Yeah but the issue with mob loot tables is half of them are fucked. People still farm Gardoroc because it's the easiest to hit out of all the "big" mobs and give the most skill gain.

Kind of depends if you want loot whilst you gain or not, most people have like 300-400k gold a piece (I know, right) so the grind is the only issue for them.

I'd say anything in the mid forties for primary stats will be good and 50 in any school.

I haven't grinded as much as others but I have 60/60/46/46/32/55 as my stats, I'm quite behind on Magic and Melee (28 GS, 69 Archery, 25 Air Magic, 50 LM and 15 GM)

I can easily get the skills up but I've been super lazy.
