Instant Death in Tylwythen Deep


The charmers can summon water elementals that use an instant death, DC: 20 drown attack. If you're not lucky enough to kill the charmer or summon on the first attack, or are rooted and can't run, you're probably dead if you're a noob.

I'm pretty sure everyone can agree that it's too high risk for a starting dungeon, please change the summons to another element or category!

Re: Instant Death in Tylwythen Deep


I can vouch for that, since those water elementals have killed my new Ranger at least twice by now. Sure, the water elementals drop themselves to half their Hit Points by doing that, but that's not much comfort when you're faced with going from Uninjured to Dead in 0.5 seconds.

Since the Drown pulse attack is overpowered (as it's both instantly lethal and nearly impossible to block), I've seen other servers change Drown to where it does a certain percentage of Damage instead (ie. 80% of a character's Hit Points on a failed save). Would a change like that be agreeable?

Re: Instant Death in Tylwythen Deep


I can probably re-evaluate the way drown works.

But they and their summoners are pretty frail - both having extremely low health. You really have ample opportunity to finish them off before they try to drown you. I don't know if no risk of death in anything is totally desirable. I'd rather dungeon crawling be an engaging activity.

Does the new quest work alright?

Yes, the new quest works now. emoticon

But the slimy doll quest reward is flagged Stolen. Is that intentional?
