KI Questions

Post by Alces » Tue Jul 06, 2010 11:24 am

Just a couple of questions about lyfe in general. (Hah !)

Experience
Does the XP earned from them scale with their strength that waxes/wanes with the lunar cycle?
That is- if I kill/dispatch a lyfe at night when there is no moon, can I expect to vanquish the same creature when the moon is full?

Lyfe Claws
Do they drop from critters, are they found randomly on the ground (like bard parts), or do they spawn at preset locations (like the pinch of catsbane in KI cove)?

Albino Mahas
Do they ever spawn in the cove, or are they found exclusively on the interior of the island?

Skea
Is it just me, or do I ruin a lot more furs here in amounts that I'm used to hardly ever ruining elsewhere?
If so- what's up with that?

Yes. Day/night lyfes vary. Day full moon lyfes similar in experience to regular night. Night full moon more.
Lyfe Claws

Random spawn on ground.
Albino Mahas

Never saw one in cove. Only saw in south part of island.
Skea

Yes. Need more Skea for lyfes. I don't know why.

That's kinda lame. Is this a bug, or a "feature"? :p

What the-

Code: Select all

7/7/10 1:33:42a Alces has fallen to a Tae-Su Lyfelidae.
...
7/7/10 1:41:43a • Pain. Your skin prickles. Your teeth ache. You feel nauseous.
I thought that if you were going to be turned, it would happen instantly after falling...not 8 minutes after.

Is it being felled by a lyfe that turns you, or simply being fallen on KI for a given period of time?

That's weird. I always thought and saw people getting lyfed instantly when they fall to a lyfe, not minutes later.

Seems like a pretty serious bug. As far as I know, it should only happen when you're killed - and really, it only makes sense then anyway.

To be fair, I wasn't exactly watching every moment on the screen while Al was fallen- I was trying (and failing) to send Ang in with a chain to get the group that was fallen with Al. So if a lyfe is able to bump into a fallen and infect them, then things may be functioning as designed.

Still- if y'all are saying that the message for being infected should come immediately after falling, I'll direct this to the GMs for investigation.

Thanks!

You should not be able to be lyfed while fallen like that.

notes on lyfe skinning
Because Lyfes get tougher, the easiest way to do that would be



















To make their total ranks multiplied, across the board. Coin Data might also be multiplied. LIke 2x for night and 3x for FM lyfes. it's prolly a bug that they blame on being a feature

Not only should it only be able to happen when you fall, how hard you fall always seemed to make the chance of infection higher.

I have never heard of this happening outside of Rowl being around.

Yappy is looking into the whole being-lyfed-8-minutes-after-falling thing.

So, for now, I'd wager that the incident was not a Feature.

I'll keep this thread updated if I hear something new.
