Furniture? Really?

    Furniture doesn't really appeal to me, so this isn't going to impact me at all. In saying that, I'm thankful someone's willing to put tons of effort into improving the game. Thanks for your hard work!

    While we're at it, let's take a look at dual blunt dps (even without your artis it's still pretty horrendous) and alchemist aff rate too :)

    eta: I'd say Monk too, but if the past... Nearly two decades... Are anything to go by, complaints about Monk generally don't go all that great.


    yeah DwB dps baseline is kinda well.. not right... everyone thinks its the artes that make it crazy, but the damage difference I do from 14 str and 24 str is like 200-300 extra damage a hit. they mentioned diminishing returns. but I mean there has to be SOME room for improvement.

    but then its hard to take damage from DwB because it does absolutely and has almost no ability to afflict what so ever.

    Personally I don't think giving it access to some afflictions would be all that bad, in exchange for lowering its damage output somewhat. Give it some new attacks that do afflictions (they don't have to be envenomable) though you'd have to decrease the limb damage (but they all do the same amount, or very close, per hit).
     Gut/Chest/Neck/Head (torso/head damage): Nausea/Sensitivity/Paralysis/Stupidity
     Hands (or wrist)/Elbows/Shoulders (arm damage): Clumsiness/Level 1 arm break/Lethargy
     Feet (or ankles)/Kneecaps/Thighs (leg damage): -- Not really sure here.. Leftover affs kinda op, aside from Lv1 leg break :/

    It's almost like there's another knight spec if you want heavy limb damage and afflictions based on damaging specific body parts.

    It's almost like you describe it as being being a form of two hand and then got huffy when called on it.  You might as well hand him a warhammer to go with the flail.

    I like that DWB doesn't have afflictions, no point in having 4 different styles that are all just flavours of dual aff+damage. DWB just needs a lower base damage and higher scaling component, so that it still deals decent damage to high-health targets, but doesn't destroy 4-5k health targets in a blink. I regularly tell new folks coming in that until they have at least 4500-5000 health, they should avoid DWB completely. Just not feasible to handle that.

    Edit: Wait, why is this in the furniture thread?

    It's almost like people are arguing about combat balance in a thread about an updated furniture system, which was/is obviously a new Celani's hallmark task and doesn't really detract other people away from doing combat changes.

    You're welcome.

    Can we use this new system to make barstools to break over people's heads? That's the most pressing question on everyone's mind, I think.

    @Sarapis @Cellorran I don't see any sort of repair capabilities in the skill. Could we get something similar to jewellery's repair (either scaling gold cost or scaling commodity cost, based on months remaining) to extend the lifetime of furniture that's already in place? That'd be pretty nice.

    ETA: Skimming the thread, just wanted to post the first thing that jumped to my mind, but lovely wonderful hugs to the team for everything they do. People are never satisfied with what they have, but you lot come a lot closer than most :)
    Huh. Neat.

    Know what motivates players? When people actually pay attention to the repeated suggestions and requests for things. 
    I think you're confusing what you want with what players generally want.
    me and the years worth of people requesting drinks? Or containers? Totally just me. 
    I accept that some people wanted furniture, but I think the other stuff had far more requests for it. 
    If you'd prefer to play a game that functions as a democracy and lets players vote on how to allocate developer resources, I definitely invite you to search out such an experience and note how well that worked for them. Since I already know the answer, it's a course of action we shall not be taking. 
    This inspired me to do some googling and I found "Path of Exile" which seems to have a nice system for the community and developers to communicate. http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-forum/dev-manifesto
    Furniture crafting sounds cool.

    There's also Jagex, who run (two) extremely successful MMOs using the democratic model (or a variant thereof).

    It might not work for Achaea, but it does work for other games.
