    Only the first two times you use it per person :D or until someone updates the echoes on a public system. But it can be very fun.

    Not before you get at least one kill on that person you've always wanted dead.

    It has a long of long term combat potential too. Everyone you fight would have to know you have that 1 skill. Newer players would always fall victim

    It says "one of your ability messages", not "one of your ability's messages", so no reason they have to let you change all messages belonging to an ability.

    Just change an ability you use to seal a lock, or any other number of combat useful. Just find out what skill would benefit your class the most if someone missed curing it

    Either way, I'm really curious to see what gets done with this. I know what I would do, but I don't want to say because I think it's particularly evil and I don't want someone else to do it. :tongue:
  • AntoniusAntonius Member Posts: 4,926 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Server side curing and GMCP afflictions don't care about the associated text, though. Who even uses triggers for 99% of aff tracking these days?

    Because of serverside and gmcp the only real application I can think of is things that are usually highlighted and manually dealt with like holocaust or that Sylvan lightning thing or instakills

    A couple of years ago this would have been a very good point to bring up. It's also probably why they never made this item in the past.

    However, now everyone uses GMCP to track afflictions, or uses server side curing, neither of which will be affected by a change in message.

    Is it bad that as much as I world want to abuse this, I really just want it to change the flavour text?
