Melee or Archer ?

Post by AxlTrozz » 09 Feb 2007, 01:29

If you noticed almost all the char are archers there is no sword warriors (well only at the beginning when you have no choice) , and i think is because the exp points are no enough for a melee warior, to test my theory i created a new char and try from the beginning to be strong enough to survive but even with a lvl 40 warrior using sword a green slim can kill me in a couple of hits,when the same level archer warrior can kill almost any monster, so... i suggest... to give more damage points to the short sword (well at least until a new and better sword appears) so a melee warrior can have better chances and that would motivate more players to be sword warriors.

I object to your claim there are no swordsman. My character Gabranth is a decent swordsman. Though I can't take snakes with a sword yet...

But yeah the game is slated toward archers. However, I'm not too sure if raising the atk on the short sword is the answer, rather some higher defense items would be nice. Such items are being made. The problem with a swordsman isn't the lack of atk, its the fact that they have to be up close and personal with the mobs, and take more damage. Imho perhaps some stat adjustments should be made to the mobs in lieu of the lack of soulless characters. Or perhaps implement a shield that can only be equipped with a sword. Might as well play around with it now in the pre-alpha stage. Anyway. Yeah.
Gabranth in game.

a better idea would be to make stat upgrades for knights cheaper.

Another problem is with an archer you can be killing many monsters at a time at a distance, increasing the speed of lvling, but with an archer you can basically only be killing one at a time up very close.
