Grab Bag

Grab Bag -

The most recent edition of the Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag is back to answer an assortment of community questions, with mention of Team Lead positions available on the DAoC team.

Q) You should clarify the recent archer patch that added a timer for Crit shot with reduced damage. My understanding was that this was on a single person, that if targeting another person that this timer would not be enforced. Many times - post patch - I have targeted and hit another person who is targeted for the FIRST time by me, and it gives me the message that this person takes reduced damage... So, do the notes really mean that if ANYONE hits that person with a Crit Shot, they will take reduced damage from ANYONE else hitting them? Some clarification would be helpful. Is this working as intended?

A) Your initial assumption is correct, it should only affect the person who is hit with a crit shot. What you're describing is an odd bug that we're trying to nail down.

Q) Does the defensive bonus on styles give you a bonus in RvR or only PvE and does this bonus work on your black/evade/parry chance or does it just effect the rate at which your target misses you?

A) The bonus works in both RVR and PVE, for block parry and evade.

Q) In regards to a recent grab bag, it was stated that weapon skill doesn't do anything for damage. If this is the case what does Enervating Poison for stabbers do, seeing that it's a weapon skill / con debuff?

A) The weaponskill portion of the debuff reduces the value of the skill value of your weapon. IE: If you debuff a warrior with 50 hammers with a 10% WS debuff poison, it will reduce their effective hammer by 5 points down to 45. This does not remove the use of styles, it simply makes them hit for less damage and not penetrate defense as easily.
