Fleeing as a central combat mechanic

    I've said it before. Occie is in a weird spot because we do have a high add putput but the majority of the good hinder affs that we have are late game(generally)  and punishable by high output add classes. We've gotta get three affs stuck plus Cadmus and mental to get RNG paralysis while we, like everyone else have to fight uphill
    battles against alchemist, serpent, and priest. I dunno what the fix is, but lowering aff speed will make fighting priest, serp, alchie, bard, snb, and Artie monk impossible. Also, it doesn't really help treat only like 4 people really smash Occie and we know virtually every trick in the book so it's hard to get. Good baseline of where the middle ground is.

    I think it's mostly a matter of making what afflictions you give have more relevance to Cadmus->Hecate->Whispering Madness strategy, rather than the linear give x amount of affs. How to do that, unsure, but classleads are up soon and I'm sure there'll be a bunch of ideas.

    The problem with that is our highest output abilities are RNG and not even
    guaranteed output so giving specific affs wouldn't make sense

    It's kind of weird balancing around having a 400 credit arty, being atavian, or having a legendary mount though.

    Bard can also give all lock affs on demand, by the way! They don't have room hinder to make up for it, though.
    Atavian flight is stopped by weariness. So is mount flight unless you specifically use SPUR MOUNT SKYWARDS
    If i'm not mistaken there's a full second difference in balance time between spur and fly. No idea why you'd use fly vs spur if you have that in riding.
    If you SPUR and get tentacled then the mount is left in the air, so it's not spammable at all.

    I like that the classes offer very varied and different play styles when it comes to duels/skirmishes/raids now. Many different types of aff classes, many different types of prep classes.

    Dislike the trend
    Occies have always gotten -mad- (get it) respect from me because their kit is all rng. Please don't change that.

    A large part of achaean combat is rng, and occies have rng in their favor at least.

    As someone who still sucks bad at chasing people I dislike runners. :(
    I just need to git gud though.
