The old DR vamp... That was pure fun...

Also, wish we had our old Dragon Shields. That was sooo much fun.

It just occurred to me that we're fast approaching the 1-year mark for the beta. Here's a toast to all the oldies who have been around since the pre-beta days. There aren't a lot of us left (I think me, TigerKnee, Subanark, and q 3, and that's it), but it's been quite a ride.

God, when I first saw The Indomitable... That was a looong time ago. I don't normally swear, but that was an exception.


And the first time you saw Count Blah-blah in the Crypt?

Teleport + blackspace on every Vampire on the map + Lifesteal you when revealed.

I was playing a Monk for Christ's sake...

I even wrote some fan-fiction for Alpha. :mrgreen:

I don't know about the forums, but I've played alpha extensively, and lurked for ages before posting. Like I said, one of the actual "you're kidding me" hard moments actually got me involved. Happy one year people :)

And as for "was this ever silly", taking a no piety loss palading of GG through Gaan'Telet and not losing any resists on the -15% res los per hit floors, on the "bare bones" minimalist profile was probably the most unbelievably and unexpectedly easy things I've ever done. TT paladins were really, really rare back then and I was exploring uncharted realms. Turned out they were full of cheeze :lol:

I can't say I was with the Beta for it's full year, in fact my first update was cuirious things are afoot, but I was with the alpha long before it. All I can say, is throughout all my time here I've enjoyed every second of it.

Happy almost one year anniversary. We've all had a great time.

How could I forget that as well? I still miss that thing!

Here's an idea for an Avatar's Symbol rework (since the current one is a lackluster "trophy" item):

Whenever you take damage, you gain an attack bonus boost equal to the number of hit points you lost your next attack. This would be applied after resistances and damage reduction, and any damage you ignored with death protection wouldn't count. Otherwise the idea would be "take 80 damage, get +80% attack bonus on your next attack".

Closer to the version of old, but not a "warlord only" item.

Woah, that's a strange, interesting, and cool sounding idea. Would it actually be the amount of health it removed or how much it should have done (in regards to DP).

How much it removed; the way it's defined, it already works really well with rogues and warlords so further synergy with DP (particularly 1-HP chains) should be totally unnecessary. Still wickedly powerful, though.

But not do broken it would make the game a joke (see old vampire).
