    Can anyone post the AB file for Gallowshumour and explain how it works?
    Give affs -> gallowhumour person -> gain fashions.
    Given the requirement I'm guessing it'll have better scaling than soulrend. Although much like soulrend, I'm sure it won't deter people from still doing the fashion/run strategy.

    Probably even more so. Micky plus 3 axes, fashion with GH and then flip/hermit/Uni/balloon out, rinse and repeat. I was a staunch advocate for Jester for so long but this seems like it's not going to fix anything

    Is there a way to see your recent credit transfers? As in, transfer x credits to y person for z gold? I made a transaction but I'd been awake for 30 hours at the time and I can't remember the guy's name for the life of me.

    I was wondering how the “official” rp behind serpents go. When you take the class are you supposed to actually become a serpent? I.e. the whole growing venom sacs and fangs when you take the class. Also, does scales make them grow on the outside of raja fur?

    I pretend I don't have fangs, that my character is just practiced in the more sneaky arts.  Torinn is a man who is a priest by occupation, everything else is additional or supplemental training.  No matter what class he is mechanically, he is a priest.  You can play your character however you want though.

    The official lore behind the serpent class is pretty much that the first few generations of humans after the rape of Maya still had plenty of chaos in their blood so the offspring tended to have mutations. Two children, Loki and Ekanel, were born with slightly serpentine mutations and eventually ate their siblings before going forward and having many offspring that would culminate in the serpent class you see today.

    I guess the ideal idea is that every serpent is a descendant of the original two, in some way. So yes, you would have fangs and venom glands to pump venom through those fangs. I suppose fang size could vary between easily hidden and very distinguishable. As for the scales, I think there is more interpretation there. Personally, I imagine it just turning your skin kinda scaly, not as distinct as a Xorans scales but something you could feel with a touch, and that most of the protection comes from the magic weaved in. So I guess it would be underneath the fur of a rajamala.

    Most people RP small and/or retractable fangs, some people have over-developed ones. Generally people, myself included, just pretend the scales aren't there or are nigh-invisible. I really have no idea how they'd interact with raja fur.

    Pretty sure they're the same as knight, wherein they get a very minor boost in speed from transing both. Used to be full benefit from the trans'd one, and 10% benefit from the non-trans'd one (10% lesson wise, not a 10% reduction in speed).

    No. It's all covered in HELP WEAPONRY, but here are the relevant parts:

    The results you get with weapons are strongly influenced by:
    (1) training, which gives you greater "weapons effectiveness," *

    (*) In the case of certain class skills (Weaponmastery, Pranks, and Skirmishing), training also increases effectiveness. To be specific, your "weapons effectiveness" is the higher of your previously listed class skill or Weaponry skill level, plus 10% of the lower.

    What is affected by your weapon's effectiveness?
    - the chance that any weapon's attack (swing/jab/whatever) is 'a hit.'
    - the chance that your 'hit' is not avoided by your target.
    - the damage done.

    If you only buy one, the Auspicious is better as a single paragon, the Crucious works well combined with the Auspicious, plus getting a PRC is kinda pointless as 2h runie minus some extreme types of mobs. 

    If you are only buying one, it isn't worth 1k, they are really good as a combo. Do you have absorption paragon yet? If not, that's definitely the best grab, if so, I'd make sure you have full level 3s of defensive stuff first. Those 2 are really "the final tier" of bashing, since all they do is speed you up at the top end.

    I've resisted the SOA-type Paragon for the moment and all my defensive curing arties are level 2's. I feel pretty strong defensively anyway so was just thinking of ways to speed up the kills

    If you are after pure speed in areas you can easily tank right now, then yeah, the Auspicious would be the go-to. I don't know your hunting areas,  but runie is already healthily tanky so you don't need to go full max defensive arties unless you are . trying to tank the biggest stuff in the game. I don't have my spreadsheets anymore, but from memory these paragons don't speed anything up until after level 3 pendant/weapon and at least a healthy amount of main stat (+1 or 2 gauntlets) for cost vs effects.

    A question for everyone more experienced with the talisman system then I:

    When the recent rarity changes went in, did it account at all for existing pieces out there? Or are sets that had several "common" pieces and one "rare" piece now permanently locked to that rarity, with it now being guaranteed that there will never be enough of the rare piece to complete all sets?

    I am pretty sure that change had no retroactive effect. But they did recently introduce TALISMAN REFINE, which helps.

    From HELP TALISMANS:
    Talisman Refining
    -----------------
    This command allows you to refine 3 or more PROMOTIONAL SOURCED talisman pieces
    and receive one back based on their total rarity. A few caveats you should be
    aware of:

       - You can only do this once per 24 hours.
       - Refined component pieces have a capped worth.
         This means you'll not want to refine your super rare pieces: past a
         certain point they won't be worth more. This mechanic is intended as a
         way to get rid of your common duplicates with a chance at a better piece.
       - The piece you receive from refining is of a new source type:
         REFINE source.
         This source CAN NOT be traded in.
       - Only level 1 talisman pieces can be used in refining.

    We recommend not refining pieces that have significant value (less than 150
    credits worth per piece is good margin) as refining is not a guarantee that
    you will get back a piece that is rarer than what you refined, just that you
    will get a rare piece.

    I believe your assumption is correct. Don't think it is replenishing the previous rares .Also, they have always denied certain piece is rare.

    Well, that's my point. Before, "rarity" was a product of chance. Now, we may have certain sets like the deathcape where it's fixed so that there's always gunna be x number of incomplete sets out there, since there can never be enough of the last piece to finish all of them, short of a lot of refining luck.

    does anyone know if it's possible to have servant reactions apply to specific individuals. For example Torben walks into the room, and the servant says Hello Boss. But anyone else walking in he does nothing. I see there's a REACTION <mob> <id> TRIGGER <trigger> [<parameters>], but just can't get it to work.
  • ShirszaeShirszae Santo DomingoPosts: 3,046Member @@ - Legendary Achaean
    From a quick glance at the scroll, the only way such would be possible would be indirectly, by owning or having a personal clan in which you share rank with no one else and pointing at that as the trigger for the reaction.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...
