As far as escalations go I can agree they feel out of control at times and more effort than I care to spend. I enjoy the t2 escalations but really if it isn't Duergar or Mordant I don't want to waste too much time as there is little reward for anything else.

Influence doesn't seem to be an issue to me (besides the feud bug) Influence is slow to gain when a group of older players join together to make a new company. If the company has been around a while you will have lots of influence with a steady flow from active players. If you start a new company with 10 brand new characters you can have 80 influence in a couple hours which is more than enough to declare a feud. It is only when starting from zero with veteran characters that the influence comes in like a slow drip.

As far as PFU is concerned. I don't believe they are doing anything wrong by existing. Yes they get new recruits and yes those new recruits aren't generating us influence. So what? PFU and their classes is an environment I would never want to learn through and there are plenty of people that are turned off by a learning settlement. On the other side there are definitely people who want that environment and flourish in it. PFU is just another settlement vying for recruits just like everyone else. There really isn't any special advantage that PFU has besides what we give them. Some new players I meet I encourage them towards Forgeholm, or even one of its allies. Other players, whom I feel would benefit from the PFU environment I have sent them their way. As far as the game is concerned PFU has as much right to be a part of it as anyone else. Now the politics, motivations and actions of PFU can be debated elsewhere but really are they any different from any other settlement?

#tldr - Escalations are too much work, influence is okay and PFU should be treated like any other settlement.

I might sell extraneous resources for 1s a piece. At this point though there is lots of coin in the economy but not many bulk resources. I couldn't see myself selling any Bulk resources unless it was to make up for a serious hole that the settlement needs. In the longer term future I have no doubt this will change.

I would pay 50c for bulk resources I need but wouldn't sell any at that price to be honest smile

Thank You for EE8! It is my favorite update so far.

Really though I most thankful for YOUR vision and courage to be different.

Also I really love the interaction from Ryan, Lisa, and the other Devs with the community in so many ways.

Thank You

Just thought I would let you know I just blue screened while fighting the new elementals. I got pushed around plenty by their spells without mishap however after some hours of fighting them they eventually pushed me into the terrain. It looked just like when I run into the Charge bug.(sorry pun) Just a few minutes until the script runs luckily. smile

The best part of EQ for me was the world that you could explore and the cool places,things,npcs and monsters you could find. Hopefully someday the escalation system will be as robust and flavorful and already has the bonus of being more dynamic.

As far as the Ironbreakers are concerned all of these options exist and we are happy to negotiate a fee for whatever solution fits you and your situation best. We can use our own influence, join another company temporarily or most anything the game mechanics allow. Of course you may pay a premium for some of these services. There may not be a line of people lining up to hire mercs right now but it is only a matter of time.

Hope to see you out in the field sometime Duffy smile

Well, I thought Rogue "Master Strike" would require level 20? Is that correct?

Dagger Master Strike needs Rogue level 20, Dexterity 30 and Subterfuge 129 so yes it does require you to max Rogue to take it. (Rapier Master Strike has same gateways)

That however is different from a "capstone ability" which if I understand correctly were meant to only be enabled if absolutely everything you slotted with no exceptions was from that same role.

In the case of Rogue Master Strike it would seem to be usable any time you have a dagger equipped even if you also equip the Travel Domain, Unbreakable armor feat, a holdout weapon and a T2 Wizard Spellbook and a Bunch of fighter reactives.

That does not fit my understanding of what Capstone abilities were originally meant to be about.

I kind of assumed a capstone ability would require you not to even rank up any of those abilities never mind slot them
