1  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NEW GvM Suggestion Thread~! on: 22 February 2015, 04:08
(hello all Smiley again )

Suggestion for travelling:

Once you visit an area for the first time you'd get a 'token', enabling you to access horse travell, for example.

So is anyone other than me playing the new Neverwinter MMO? It's actually quite good fun, though it's not very similar to NWN. It IS free though!

I have started playing DDO because it was free and ended up becoming Premium there, aka "pay when you want" - which is not bad and suits me well, mind you.

But once they start selling "Raid timer bypasser" and the 10th "limited time release" stone of experience to go from lvl 8 to 16 you realize the thin line between free and dumping money carelessly, although I must admit I'd not complain if I were a gamer with Bill Gate's account.

Still, it's worth to be careful, and ask yourself why do you play the game.

I can only think of requirements problem. See what you might be missing here:

4  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Spellcaster Builds / Sorcerer 35 / 3 Paladin / 2 Rogue, "Evoker" on: 06 November 2012, 21:02
A little remake of my sorcerer I made, using the same base idea of endless's 35/3/2. It's a sorceress specialized into evocation, inspired by the awesome changes made by Terror.

Level-Up order:
20 sorcerer / 1 Pally / 1 Rogue / 9 Sorcecer / 1 Pally / 5 Sorcerer / 1 Rogue / 1 Pally / 1 Sorcerer

Dump Discipline on pally levels, tumble/umd/search on rest

Skills
Max Concentration, Discipline, Tumble, Heal
Spellcraft 35
UMD 10-20
Rest I put in Search (because I like to know where I am stepping).

Pre-Epic Feats:
Power Attack, Extend, Empower, Maximize, Extend, Still, Spell Focus/Greater Spell Focus, Combat Casting

Epic Feats:
Epic Spell Focus, Improved Combat casting, Auto Still x3, Epic Mage Armor, Epic Warding, Great Cha x2, Armor Skin, Divine Shield (Pally 3 at lvl 39), Epic Spell: Hellball (Coolest spell in game imho and makes a perfect evoker's signature)

Spell notes:
1: Ironguts for venom immunity, Shield for IGMS and ILMS immunity
2: Geedle's Eletric Loop now gives stun, nice CC
3: Lightning Bolt +5 DC for around 38 DC and 16d6 maxed damage.
    Scintalling Sphere: Basically an area Chain Lightning, 120 damage. Full PvP
4: ILMS is doing a fair damage now.
5: Cone of Cold
6: Globe of Invulnerability: makes you immune to your own Ice Storms and also prevents some secondary    effects from some altered spells.
    IGMS: With Evo focus it's doing good damage against resistant mobs, substituing your now weak horrids.
7: Great Thunderclap: enemies makes 2 high saves and stay disabled for around 2 rounds . It's full PvP though
    Delayed Blast Fireball: Empowered does Ludriculous damage.
8: Sunburst: as endless said, permablind effect and its PvE
    Incendiary Cloud: Ludriculous DoT damage with Evo Focus. Fire damage though.
9: Crushing Hand: the high clvl and evo focus makes this spell good, although many things are immune.
    Meteor Swarm: Might substitute DBF at high lvl? Not sure yet.
5  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Rogue builds / Re: Ranger 10 / Assassin 29 / Shadowdancer 1 on: 06 November 2012, 20:38
TBH, i never really played sneakers much before because I have grown hatred for them  Cheesy But since Terror's changes looked so promising, I decided to give it a try.

I really was undecided on the initiative because I thought it had a role on the initial flurry attack - if I was correct, +14+8 would sum >20 which really then would be 100% initiative against melee and mages. So yeah, you probably have a point in there,  I'll make a lil test later.

I'm trying to go for something a lil different, making it also a trapper. As firecracker said, I find it limiting to invest points into it when you have so little strength and so much to max (hide/ms mainly) and the visage is a tremendous defense system.  Also I went halfling more for the flavor than anything else - my first drafts were human as well. Tongue

On the bosses, it's true: a sneaker is almost useless against them. There are still some situations where one is useful, but then again they're limited.
6  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Rogue builds / Ranger 10 / Assassin 29 / Shadowdancer 1 on: 05 November 2012, 16:56
Tested some new ideas for a sneaker, this is one I found out to me most promising.

Started out with 10 str / 18 dex  / 14 con / 12 wis / 14 int  / 8 , Halfling race for the hefty sneak bonuses. Considering bumping more int for skills. 12 wis is for the ability to cast camouflage & one with the land

Level progression:
9 ranger / 1 Shadowdancer / 28 Assassin / 1 Ranger / 1 Assassin.

Pre-Epic Feats:
Dodge / Mobility for Shadowdancer
Weapon Focus (weapon) , I choose Shortswords.
Weapon Finesse
Blind Fight
Improved Initiative

Last one is your call.


Epic Feats:
5 x Improved Sneak Attack
Epic Skill Focus Hide & Move Silently
Epic Weapon Focus (Weapon)
Epic Prowess
Superior Initiative.
Blinding Speed AT RANGER 10

Some feats might be missing. I'll update later.

Skills:
Obviously Hide and Move Silently are mandatory. The rest is up to you. I personally decided to make something a lil bit different, investing points into dd & set traps and 0 discipline.

Considerations:

Ghostly Visage at assassin 29 is 80% concelment, meaning any attack will have around 36% chance to even have a chance to land on you, and it adds 6 ab.  The poisons are promising, but I can only check if they work when I do this build.

I took the initiatives because a long time ago I remember I read an article explaining how many sneak attacks you'd get by doing a surprise attack, and that involved winning initiative and having enough attack per rounds.

Basically, this build has 7 attack/ rounds, which will have then 3 attacks on the first flurry of attacks if you win initiative, all doing sneak attack damage, which will be around 300. Tests confirmed theory. These attacks will also trigger the Death Attack proc, which is... sexy, to say the least, although easily avoidable.

DragonAge was an excellent game. Maybe the last good RPG before Bioware was sold to EA.

Still got to test that Skyrim, game's been on my Steam list for almost a year lol.

But Diablo 3... that was a hell of a disappointing game. Dumbed down, repetitive, and no customization. I suggest you get Torchlight 2 if you like experimenting on an RPG like NWN, DA or even Skyrim.
8  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Blackguard's bulls strength is broken on: 09 April 2012, 02:51
Maybe if the STR bonus of the 2nd, and therefore BG, bull's strength is lower than the 1st the game will disconsider the 2nd?
9  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Anyone still around? on: 16 January 2012, 20:31
I kinda got dragged into a DnD based MMO, DDO, for quite some time now, thus that beeing the main reason I abandoned the server. I did sometimes try to "return to my liege", but I think I was at a point into the game that nothing was really thrilling to do anymore. And then I cliked the DDO ad...

I also got kind of disgruntled about how the server was becoming high magic again. I remember it drove me nuts that Freedom items were easy to obtain ... again. . Still, I lurked here, seeing how Terror was taking care of things. GvM is lucky to have him Smiley

I do miss the friendships and awesome battles for dominance over Middle Earth that the server used to have. Maybe the best fun I've ever had. I remember I even promised Turril I'd program a PvP counter for him - and I did it! Just didn't deliver  Sad

But who knows? Maybe if they change that music of Minas Tirith that I'm sick of listening over and over again I might come back  laugh

I hope they Upgrade NwN 1. Just a candle of thought ...
11  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: In case you were wondering why the old NWN Bioware site is down... on: 24 June 2011, 15:40
Why would they attack Bioware? Especially the forums of NwN?

I don't think they want those passwords. Heck, I've been using the password of NwN login for over 20 years, and I think I'll keep using even with that.

I think they might have other reasons... but then again, I might be wrong.
12  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: Paladin on: 08 September 2010, 18:06
DDO implemented a 90 sec cooldown timer on Smites, but they also implemented increased gain/level. I remember my paladin had about 4 smites at level 18.

They had also increased damage formulae and LOH HP gain, but that was basically because they don't have epic levels implemented

And, hmm, I still think Pallys are at least equal hitters as fighters and barbs, since Divine MIght and Favor are exceptionally awesome on nwn Tongue
13  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Uber Boots on: 04 September 2010, 18:51
This made me remember of those boots that granted immunity to all electricty spells... boy, that was a cool one as well  Grin

I think that it is because there used to be a boughtable knife which gave Improved Evasion. But since those are gone for good probably there isn't any reason for it now.
15  Misc / Off-topic / Re: Optical Illusions on: 02 July 2010, 23:35
LOL
16  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Admin Announcements / Re: World Cup on: 02 July 2010, 23:34
lol, I'm still running for victory Grin
17  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Epic Fighters on: 25 June 2010, 15:59
Maybe improve Fighter's damage with their specialty weapon? Specialization + Epic Specialization?

18  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Admin Announcements / Re: World Cup on: 25 June 2010, 15:57
  Brazil....   and soccer isn't realy a sport is it?

Come here to Brazil and say that out loud  Grin

Also, Morgan Freeman disagrees with you;

(and I lol'ed at Italy)
19  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Admin Announcements / Re: World Cup on: 07 June 2010, 15:46
I'd obviously pick my own country but... I don't like Dunga and he doesn't like good soccer ( 3 defensive midfielders? On Brazil? You gotta be kidding me! ) so I'll take Netherlands - I've always like the sound of their player's names!

(Granted, he formed a group considering the past 4 years, strong in his beliefs, and not because of the popularity of the players)
20  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Problems with immunity on: 11 May 2010, 13:44
As far as I remember fear from Barb rages don't get immunized from those items - they only protect against the arcane spells.
21  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Sauron The All Knowing on: 06 May 2010, 16:08
If I thought it would make at least ONE person give a sh** about this and give us a legitimate explenation of the thinking behind this (or lack of), I would make a halfling named frodo baggins,  and Lawson could be Sam,  and I'll walk the entire damn path from all three movies.  I'll even do it without gandalf since gondor seems to have lost him as well and that's why he can't do shouts.

Hello, welcome to Gondor vs Mordor, a NwN server based on LORD OF THE RINGS.

I am personally finding those changes kind of amusing, making me want to come back again (getting kinda bored of the games I'm playing as well Tongue). This actually makes the server more immersive than the casual hack-and-slash-and-grab-your-lootbag style of playing that at one point can get boring.

If you want an "equal" experience, join Antiworld or other servers out there. You'll find plenty of brainless action and equality.

22  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Sauron The All Knowing on: 06 May 2010, 04:51
Take on the bright side, all you need to do is make a lvl 1 rogue halfling and throw that ring with unlimited uses of GS on the fires of mount doom while the big lvl 40 party is trying to raid MM Cheesy
23  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Monitor on: 29 April 2010, 02:58
I thought u got bonuses to hide/ms while on night?
24  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Spell Casters on: 29 March 2010, 21:50
Many, many, MANY spells have been changed, and all for the better

For example, an evocation specialized Mage gets an awesome Great Thunderclap that forces your enemy to roll 3 saves for almost 18 seconds disabling and an uber Meteor Swarm that can easily reach I think +250 damage with 30+ clvls.

Also, Enchantment + Necromancy + Conjurarion speced wizards... now, just read Essays in Magic that you can buy on noob vender at each city and you'll see what I mean.

Mages are now VERY powerful, just know how to use them ;)
25  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / Melee Builds / Re: Chaotic Evil Human 10fighter/28Blackguard/2rogue on: 03 March 2010, 19:29
Very nice build, seems to me the Pally/RDD has finally found some fearsome opponent Cheesy

One could also drop 1 ab pre-epic for 9 fighter/1rogue/10 bg pre epic if he both wants Epic Spec and Evasion
