The Evolution of Combat: BETA discussion

Recommended Posts

Just took a melee build to Black Dragons. Here's some info.

 

-Black Dragons are weak to arrows

-They have a combat level of 114

-Overloads now boost your melee stats to 116 and do NO damage to you when you take a sip.

-Tried out all the new Dual wielding and single on them. Although it was incredibly leggy combat seems to be a lot more fluent.

-Dragons still attacked with just melee and Dragonfire.

 

I spent a lot of time looking at the action bar o see which skill to use but I suppose that's just because I need to learn what skill does what.

 

There are currently two Constitution specific skills. One restores your Lp and is an ultimate, the other draws agro to you and gives other people buffs.

What's the first pair? Also, Glacors might have new drops added.

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

Whoa, actual tanking abilities

 

Lp restore constitution is not an ultimate it is a basic however it can only be used outside of combat and drains you adrenaline to convert it to lp.

 

There is a defence ultimate that seems to basically do the same job but is an in-combat one.

When you wear no armour, you have 990 lifepoints at lvl99 hp, very easy to die (I got killed by a gang of skeletons in the wilderness lol)

Meh will try playing on beta again later this week when might not be so laggy.

 

One thing I noticed that I hope is a bug, everywhere seems to be multicombat, could 2v1 people in wildy.


Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I got my email soon as I came out of the gym. Had a bath, and some food and get on now... Only for it to be too laggy to even bother playing. I make it 2 steps then my character stops, 2 steps stops... Impossible to even try to do anything on there, even on min settings.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Your settings don't matter, it's the server that's being crap

Maybe Jagex made the beta really laggy so people who aren't in it don't feel bad? XD

my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

To be expected there are thousands of players loading the servers (which have to basically load the entire game as if its ur first time playing) plus the extra load from saved data importing and there's only 9 beta worlds. Should calm down in next few hours once the american swarms got their loading done.

Another thing to note, melee shields at least are now the most protective armour pieces in the game in regards to both armour rating and LP boost.

 

Farseer kiteshield seems to be the best, it has better stats than both DFS and Bandos shield.

 

Also, Kiln cape now increases your Critical hit chance by 2.4% as opposed to giving a strength bonus.

Ahha cheers for that clarification Bruno! :) I wonder if there's anyone who's actually managing to not lag... People at duel arena were duelling (or trying to) and I saw Woox challenge a couple of people.

"RIOT IN W66!!!" (Picture in blog hehe: http://newrscombat.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/riot-w66111shift/)

P.S. Anyone got details for food yet...?

 

Is this riot about anything in particular or is it just general nerd rage? Lol.

Also saps and leeches have been split there's now one for attack power and one for strength for melee, ranged and mage (plus a def one obv)

When I log in I get about 5 seconds before everyone's character loads and I'm screwed. I don't even have the time to homeport away to a less crowded area. When I DO homeport, I just dissapear and stay in the same goddamn spot. I might just log into regular Runescape, move over to a quiet location, then re-load that to the beta.

 

EDIT: YOUR ACCOUNT HAS NOT LOGGED OUT FROM ITS LAST SESSION PLEASE [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] AND TRY AGAIN

It doesn't seem to have any particular focus. It's either people annoyed because they aren't on beta, or pures.

 

EDIT: Oh, and people who think it's fun to riot xd.
