And i'll admit to enjoying telling teh shiny new young peeps of OL the old stories from way before they were prolly born, when teh forumz and chans regularly ran red with the blood of weenies, Eltards, plus the occasional EL mod who lost its way and wandered a bit too far from home. Those were teh happy days of my 'yoof' which, I now fondly remember whilst sitting here on the veranda of my twilight years with my catheter bag nearly full.
Where is Nova when you need her ?

I would mix stuff and bring some relationships between perks, some dependences etc
Anyone who played League of Legends for example, can see how good some systems in mmorpg can be, even we don't have 100k players online, does not mean we can't build something uncommon that will bring us new players.
LoL is like dota, till you get bored and try all possibilities that you are able to enjoy ingame, you get old.OL/El are pretty simple and maybe even a bit petty, I still wonder how they have that much players online.

Careful Mixer (alternate) 3 - 2 pp - No tools break while mixing.
Careful Harvester 3 - 2 pp - No tool breakage while harvesting.
maybe do a 90% for Careful Mixer (alternate) 3 , else vial molds won't break and I think that would be bad for economy for it helps reduce efe's in game, would have a small percent of still loosing, even at 90 or 95% added to the chances in game, should be able to get well over a profit when making vials before breakage.
and the Careful Harvester 3 maybe have ratios be 50%, 75%, 95%, or there would be no market for harvest meds

So if it were 1 perkpoint per 5 oa for example, that's exactly the same as waiting 5 oa for a perk that costs 10pp. Why would we need the change?
Perhaps it would be easier to have a new definition for perk costs this way, but I really like the old way. Perks were basically rated out of 10 and that's how much it would cost to get it.
There's my opinion on this. What the new Perks should be is still highly debatable, but I like the ideas in this conversation.
Posted 19 February 2015 - 07:53 PM
I'm not endorsing either way, just trying to help clarify. I don't have much of an opinion on this one. I got many perks in EL, but I'm frankly ok without them here.
Posted 19 February 2015 - 10:15 PM
In that case, I totally want it. But per 10oa seems really low if they are the same kinds of perks cost wise. It's kind of a mixed bag of how is this actually going to work, but first I'd say we should agree on whether to add perk points as a thing.

1. You are limited in how many pp you can sink into perks (if perks were added similar to EL we would likely need to increase pp/oa as well...which at this point in the game would really hirt game balance imo).
2. Another way to customize your character. If you want to go all in mixer, or fighter or some split you can use perks to hep you find the right build/balance for you.
3. Limitting the number of perks a player can take allows us to increase the strength of all perks in general without letting people become OP by sinking all their oa pp into perks. In example, imagine a pure mixer taking all of the mixng perks I listed in my post?

the layout Achilles suggested, and open for opinion, if 1 perk point per 10 oa's. at level 80 you could max out 2 of those categories, level 120 would be needed for a third to be maxed,
if every 8 oa's you get a perk point, you could max 3 at 96, and a little extra play if you choose to go higher. 15 perk points at 120.
Either way, I believe we should express opinion and fine tune possible perks and categories, and then choose the frequency of points, to ensure nothing to OP and leave a style of variety.

I think perks to increase mana, carry capacity, etc are redundant to increasing attributes, so I think we should omit those. Those would include the exp bonus ones, as that is part of rationality or worshiping a god.
If we want to make Perk Points a different thing from Pick Points, then let's really make them different. If we use Perks to buff what we are already doing in attributes, then we are really just making Perk Points "Super Pick Points."
I'd much rather see us put some creative thought into other sorts of one off abilities that would be cool and could be used creatively - different from I'm stronger, tougher, have more mana etc. Examples beyond those I mentioned above might include:
- "Pick Pocket" - upon successfully disengaging (ring or fleeing) from a fight, acquire 1 drop item from the opponent (includes PK)
- "Running Man" - able to run, cf speed hax, for a period of time (1 min?) with a long cool down - like 15 min?
- "Self Distruct" - when you die, all int he area get x damage (this was in EL)
- "magic recycler" - when casting a spell, a chance to not use the essences
- "medicine man" - when being hit in battle, a small chance to heal 10 hp automatically (not use a HE)
- "shaman" - when in battle, a small chance to remote heal on another player in the area (not use HE) - I don't have this one all worked out but it seems like it would be neat.
If, on the other hand, we do go with attribute buffering perks as has been suggested on page 4 of this topic, I think the associated %s need to be much lower than listed. Ppl will very quickly be OP.

If we are on this stage, I want post my examples, maybe we can use some of them or edit or whatever.
If you have this perk, invasion creatures follow you by longer distance (lets say 6 tiles) till they kill you.
You get +3 defence while fighting with 8 invaded monsters, but -3 attack.
If your opponent dissed away from combat, and you hit him 50% or more his life points in total, you will auto follow and attack it.Does not work to animals and monsters (these can't flee or diss in OL yet anyway)
Whatever you cast (spells), you have 15% chance to save all mana points needed for each spell.
Note: on PK maps its only 8%
While having this perk, your flee chance is increased by 10%, and 25% chance to reset cooldown on healing/mana potions after successfull flee.
something like this, please dont say its OP ...

About your specific ideas, I like a chance to cast spells and not use mana (%age to be determined). I also like an increased chance to flee perk. Not sure about the shiftless inhabitant (though I love the name). Bloody Fetish - hum, I'd be hesitant to make a perk that would help a PKer track down other players trying to get away. By definition the attacker already has the upper hand, seems a little harsh to the "victim."
Your idea did make me thing of another though: Subtle Stalker - gives the ability to "follow" another player (outside of PK areas). Although I could see that could be annoying if you didn't want to be followed... I dunno.
