Five on Friday - May 22, 2009
Is it possible in SA to macro everything that you can macro in 2D & UOA, or in regards to UOA at least as far as using pots, dressing, arming, recording and targeting with the mouse wheel?
We are actually working on a feature that will allow you to import your 2d macros into the SA client. So yes when this feature is complete, every macro you could make in 2d will also be possible in SA.
Much of the functionality from UOAssist is already in the SA client. It might just take some getting used to the new UI. We’ve also removed the code that made it difficult for developers of approved third-party programs to support the new client.
Why is the Jaanas Staff not Powder of Fortificationable & such low base durability (less in fact than Replicas)?
There is no reason for the Staff to have less durability and for PoF not to be usable on it. This will be fixed in the future.
Will we ever see any other artifacts that have cool special effects that are outside the normal weapon mods again?
You bet! I’m a big fan of endowing artifacts with interesting abilities and behaviors outside of the standard item properties. I’m sure we’ll see at least a few in Stygian Abyss!
Why are pets allows to (for example) cast Flame Strike with only 25 Magery?
Wow, I have no idea. That seems pretty messed up to me. It’s most likely because their wild counterparts have an override that links directly to the spell circle, and isn’t dependent on skill. We can look into this.
Why is Poison from Frog Form a higher level than Poison from Serpent Form?
Hmm, well, there are those frogs that’ll kill you with a touch. Then again, there are plenty of snakes that can kill you even… deader. We’ll have to look at this.
