Public Ouroboros

Probably gonna be rejected, but I'll just throw this out here. I'm sure I'm not the only rogue magi out there, and the class is really one of the most heavily penalized classes for being houseless. If you don't have a House, you have access to neither an MC nor Ouroboros.

I can understand paying for the crystals, I can even understand buying them off other people like any other expendable resource like curatives. Understandably an edge must be given to those who join an org, but at 200 gold per enchantment, that cost racks up something ridiculous. Most of the time our 'tradeskill' becomes reduced to a 'personal sigil factory'. Just for yourself because you sure as hell can't do them in bulk and it's not even worth trying to do something that has to be done in bulk like meteors.

Can we not have it changed to offer a 'per hour' rental as an alternative to an individual enchantment fee? I appreciate the option of paying 200 just to do a fresh necklace of purity and then maybe a 5000 per day hourly rate for doing things in bulk.

    Is there a public crystal and stuff in Tasurke?

    Not a public MC, there's a denizen that sells them but last I checked the (Crown) Merchants (Collective) was undercutting her on that anyway at much cheaper prices.

    What are the wands even used for?

    You can enchant them with fire/ice walls and firelash I think. But nobody hardly anybody does it because of how fruity it is. That, or it's just more expedient to use rings/gloves. I'm not sure if wands need to be wielded.

    Wands should be enchantable with stormhammer.


    On topic, I'm no magi, but I concur completely with Skye's argument, and thought that way for ages.

    It's bullshit. 200 per meteor arrow is a huge dent in finances.

    Well, you can use the wands while they're in your pockets, but do you really want to risk a firelash coming out right next of your private parts?

    Serpents are less penalized than Magis on this matter, since Milking is like... 1/90 of Venoms, and we Transecrete everything anyway. Buuut... our fighters have to buy their venoms from outside sources because of this, while we look at them and just shrug helplessly. Must be pretty much the same feeling for all our magis who're asked to provide sigils and enchantments.

    @Siduri Not having enchanting rooms makes one complete skillset useless. Well not really, but it's expensive to maintain it.

    Well they sunk Shallam and then sunk the Shadowsnakes' estate... it's almost like they're trying to create a need for trade and interaction between people.

    So I think the fact that Enchantment will be separated from Magi hopefully by next Logosmas... means everyone will basically be a public enchanter and the whole thing will be less housing dependent.

    I'd actually suggest just skipping a step and either adding multiple enchantment rooms and keeping the cost of 200 (5 meteors at a time with Medallion is only 40 gold per meteor), and/or adding private enchantment, forging, milking upgrades for personal housing.

    Has the added advantage of making private houses relevant for than just inscribing Harlot Tarot.

    Well portable forges means you can forge outside of public rooms now too. I'd be looking forward to seeing more artifacts like this and perhaps housing upgrades. Is there any real difference between a House upgrade and a housing alternative?

    Yeah should probably be housing upgrades instead of portable enchantment. Either way works though since logically you could perform an enchantment ritual anywhere or squeeze your fangs into a vial anywhere. Forging is the debatable one, ironically. You sort of need a forge for that.

    They said multiclass was at least a year out, and tradeskills has to happen before that can be done. I'm guessing Vastar/Azatlan is within the next couple of months and I think there are still some classleads from this round? Not sure what else. Probably more newbie fixes.

    The hugest thing is the skills each tradeskill is replaced with and the rebalancing therein. Depending on where Magi are in line, I guess it could be a while...

    But since this has been a problem for rogue Magi since before houses had to claim classes, and hasn't been helped yet, I don't know if they'll bother fixing it.
