Blade Rank Progress Messages for Trained Specialty Weapons

Post by Alces » Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:25 am

[WARNING: SPOILERS]


This topic pairs rank values with the self-taught progress messages received when a player types "/use /reflect" while holding a qualified specialty weapon. (Gossamer, Fell Blade, Bloodblade)

Please discontinue reading if this information will somehow damage your personal gaming experience.

Thank you.
























I obtained this list of progress messages by /use /practice(ing) with a Gossamer on the test server. While I am fairly confident that these messages also pertain to the other specialty weapons, I have not personally tested that hypothesis.
(Nor do I intend to do so in the future... :p)

First off, apologies for the weird title- I don't know whether or not this topic will get pinned, so I wanted to make it as easy as possible to locate using the search function.

Feel free to post this information wherever you like. (CLUMP, Puddleopedia, etc.)
The more places it is, the easier it will be for players to locate in the future.

Enjoy!

"Your persistence is an example to us all." could need cleaning up too
to take "us" out of it somehow..
like "Your persistence is an example to everyone."

I'd vote for "Your persistence is exemplary," and "Your skill is astounding" for the two offending messages.
The obstacle is the path.

I missed this when you posted it first. So, thanks to my inability/lack of discipline to counting my own ranks, getting a Balthus ledger a few nights ago, and Geraldus helping me figure out I was off on my Goss by about 100 (and referencing this post), I just added this list along with trainer messages to the CLUMP. Please let me know if there are any errors (likely, given my habit for typos) here (or for quicker service via email or PM): http://www.clanlord.net/clump/index.php ... Rank_Chart

thanks.
