436. Each time Arrakis visits us he complains about cruelty to horses and every time the answer is the same - horses heal themself while training dummies don't repair themself alone. The last trend is shooting bark boxes, because why would you use archery target that takes rope and you even need to repair it? ))
What do you think about the current "combat training"? Do you have any ideas about that?
- Answer: It is planned to remove or significantly lower skills raising from hitting "impropriate" targets during training. Training dummies, archery ranges, and players - those should be the main source of combat skills raises.
437. Are you still thinking the 1% chance of reg.res and blueprints is good? I mean it sounded kind of good idea it first, but the reality now shows it's probably not really working as intended. There should be realistic border between hard to make/valuable and impossible. I reached grandmaster smith today, I play with a large group and crafted 40 sets of chainmails only last wave (when everyone was still using chainmails). All of them with good jewelry and blessed from the Pope (100 piety). 40x6=240 parts and not a single blueprint, had to borrow from allied guild that got more lucky just to train lancing using the armor as lancing is the only non auto clickable combat skill.
So right now I sit on 25 ingots of regional ore and still not even 1 blueprint. It's not much different for others, so the result is that tier 3 is not rare armor that you give to your best warriors only for important fights - it's non existing armor that one will never wear in battle, because it's just unrealistic and can act only as show off. Not even mentioning royal armors, they take 90 skill now to wear which is easy, but no one will be able to create even a set probably in a whole year...
Please consider increasing the chance from 1% to 5% or 10%. This way it will still be rare and valuable, but not impossible to make and the best warriors will actually dare to fight in such armor. In such case also royals will pop up in the hands of officers as that's the point of royal armors anyway. Even the trade will flourish, because there will be demand for regional ores. Now you only need t3 chainmail to train lancing (the easier way then handle hits on other horse or riding around training dummies), so there is no real demand and there was no one interested in trading regional ore so far as it's both also too rare (maybe bump to 3%-5%?) and not really needed, because why would you craft such sets when no one will dare wear them in battle?
- Answer: Thank you for mentioning it. 1% was a rough guesstimate and it is obvious now, that it is not correct. We will inspect DB to learn the amount of blueprints and normal armors existing in the world to make sure that there is no bug in calculations and if calculations are correct, most probably we will increase the chance.
