    Amon awesome job but could we quest for this breath attack ? Like go kill the Huntress spider or the fire golem in Kion volcano or any one of the roaming skeletons in Lesser adroth ?

    If it came down to a vote Mine would be for the fire critter If we are Focusing our breath attack we should half to face a Fire based critter and retrieve his essence

    ***Edit ***
    I Kill fire wisps
    II Kill Fire golem
    III I dont know any fire based critters at this tier Hes not fire based but his gem is Red like fire Pyrex Jasper golem
    IV Pick one Its Dralk lol
    V Named beatle in fire island or Ravanger
    VI Suthrum

    Your thoughts ?

    I'd rather not have a quest for it as I don't want to write another quest at this time and I think it should be automatic so that Dragons are part of the coordinated system as well.

    Anyone had a chance to evaluate these changes and new abilities on Blight?

    Not me, but I have found a bug as Im playing a Biped for the first time on Order, can there be anything done about the capacity of the peds? With all the weapons/tools the npcs give you at the beginning, at some trainning crafter quests you're asked to gather +70 resources, which is impossible unless you throw some given tools/weapons/armor away. Can there be given a sack or slightly increase capacity for them at the beginning to be able to get the materials needed without throwing needed stuff away? I mean, you can still get them back from the npcs again but its unpleasant for the beginners. Also, the blacksmith quest at new Trismus that asks you to go speak with the Scout trainer to make her bows, its bugged. Once you talk to the saris scout, the quest progress wont move, you are still at the "speak with the scout trainer" already finished, and no next step given. I have tried dropping and getting the quest 2 but nothing changes so far.

    Thats all I could see for now, if I get any more errors along my way or dificulties, I may post it.

    And sorry if this not exactly the reply for this thread but its kinda about basics too.

    I've tried out some of the earlier levels on blight so far, not in all schools yet but just based on the spirit isle quests, it does seem to play a bit smoother since as a general rule, you have more capability to do damage earlier in all the schools rather than debuffs and the like. Did notice that some of the spirit isle quests don't quite match up with the levels you get the abilities now but it's not really a problem since you get the abilities earlier than the quests would ask for them.

    For those finding inconsistencies between when you can get a quest versus when you get a certain ability on the current blight build, the quests are currently being looked over and corrected where necessary, there are a few where you might be required to be a level or two higher than when you can get the quest.
    The schedule might be tight, but there is always time.

    Some more thoughts... been thinking about survivability and enjoyment of the game at the first 10 levels. will be looking at increasing new player health, but in addition what do folks think about a second round of level 1-10 changes:

    Cleric
    - Increase Smash damage from +3 to +5, 50% chance of giving a 15s debuff that causes -25 crush resistance
    - Instant Heal does better healing while in Green stance
    - Move Green Stance from level 5 to level 3
    - Raise damage on Power strike from +5 to +8, increases damage in Red Stance by 10% (rather than +5)
    - Change Dispirit Foe to alter speed of melee/ranged/spell attacks (including specials), effect has a min school level (10) that should be removed


    Mage
    - Rename Enhanced Flame Bolt to Fireball. It will “burn” the target, giving it a debuff that, while active, will cause other flame spells (Flame Bolt, Fiery Strike, Flame Bomb, etc) to do additional (+10%) damage. do more damage in red stance
    - Rename Safety to Magic Shell, make it give ethereal armor as well
    - Rename Burn Armor to Singe, make it do damage up front, and change flame resistance reduction from -22 to -25, do more flame reduction in blue stance
    - Swap Engulf and Singe
    - Move Blue stance from level 5 to level 3
    - Rename Melee Ward to Androgos' Armor, raises its effect from +11 to +17
    - Rename Burnout to "Affinity to Flame"


    Scout
    - Increase Power Shot damage from +7 to +10, do 10% more damage in red stance (rather than +5)
    - Swap Scout's Block (level 3) with Dodge (level 8)
    - Increase Long Shots damage bonus to +7
    - Move Blue Stance to level 3 (from level 5)


    Warrior
    - Raise damage on Power strike from +5 to +8, increases damage in Red Stance by 10% (rather than +5)
    - Move Red Stance to level 3 from 5
    - Rend Armor does +5 damage in addition to base, 10% more armor reduction in green stance
    - Defensive Style's recycle to 30s (from 90)

    I would say anything that helps new players is good. Im always seeing new players asking either what are they doing wrong or what can they hunt as a lvl (pick a lvl between 5 to 20) cause everything their level is too tough for them.

    I like those changes, having just recently taken a new Mage up into the 20s and a new Warrior into the 40s.

    Seriously, the biggest problem I have is once I get past level 14-15. Things start hitting harder and armor just doesn't seem to help. In fact, when I'm playing my level 41 Warrior, whether I'm in Cargo Armor or full Platemail, I'm toast against low level 30s mobs. My Mage fairs just about as well, wearing Padded armor - it's like the platemail armor doesn't even help.

    I realize I can start multi-classing and gain abilities or spells from other schools to help, but I kind of wanted to see what it was like to take a single-class character to 100. Not sure I can do it and remain sane :)

    Those mage changes look really nice, especially the +10% flame damage. Like that the stances are being used again too.

    Hopefully that +10% damage can be added to all the future versions of Enhanced Flame Bolt(Fireball).

    My biggest issue (honestly) is renaming Burn Armor to Singe. Because...i'll get very confused with the flame spell Sear, ahaha. Rename instead to Incinerate (personally think it fits better - attacks then burns away armor, while being totally distinct from other abilties/spells/etc name-wise.)

    Everything else I fully support !

    Time to learn stance-dancing I guess :)

    I love these changes. Making combat a bit more interesting can always help :)
