    Important server poll that may change the server for the better or worst

    So the admin team has been talking recently and we've felt the need for a mana system. But like any good admin we are making sure to add the players in the discussion so they can decide whether they want it or not



    The good

    • It will help balance out the new magic wielding players coming through the magi guild
    • It will help players know the limits of what they can cast and what they can't
    • It will limit the amount of spells a powerful magic user can cast during a battle


    The bad

    • We will have to fix and add the mana to every character sheet
    • Players will have to recreate some of their builds in order to cope with the mana system
    • Some higher level players will have to fix their stats if they want to use mana well
    • it will take a while to get used to and older veterans will have to learn to add mana to their combat

    So, instead of just listing the cons and pro's. try describing what it does. So we know what were selecting for.

    Didn't it just cost fatigue in the first place? If it did I don't see the need for a change, if anything this would probably allow for the mages to do a whole lot more. Like say they cast a devastating spell that cost all of their mana, they'd likely to still be able to walk around like it didn't tire them since its not fatigue, at that point they could charge into battle with a sword and use other melee abilities, kinda ruining the balance between the classes.

    Reaching zero mana means being almost braindead, aka your head would be in so much stress that it shuts down a little... i'd say its even WORSE than fatigue when it hits Zero

    Basically it would work much like it does in like..everything else..felt that was kinda obvious

    The lower the mana the lower amount the spells you can cast during a battle

    Mad will probably explain the difference between fatigue and mana in the future i'm just the guy that made the post really

    So to sum it up, if you had a low mana you could really only cast a certain amount of spells or one big spell during a battle and that would be it. Obviously yes you theoretically could charge into battle after your spells are done but the reason why it's changing is because endurance boosts your fatigue, so what goes through most peoples head is "Oh endurance is how many hits I can take and how long til I get tired in a battle AND how many spells I can cast?" so what this will do is lower the amount of "battle-mages" to the higher levels because you will have to make a choice between leveling up how many hits you can take/how good you are with a weapon or you can go for a lot of mana, boosting the amount of spells you can cast during a  battle

    Hope that cleared some stuff up for some people that were confused


    And what doner said is also true

    Looks like the vote for Mana has won.  I'll organise a quick meeting tonight for preparations.
