Constant GD Buffing?

Post by Daimoth » Mon Sep 29, 2008 3:27 pm

Is it a function of Greater Deaths to always dominate players? I was just getting to the point where I can have a whiff fest with them and eventually win with some healery, and now they hit me with some consistency and can 3-hit me with over a recent ledger in Histia plus armor.

Is this how they should be?

It kind of makes sense that GDs are always going to be super powered. They are, Greater Deaths, after all.

But, I feel your pain.

I could be wrong but I remember a LONG time ago that people with probably 1/4 of your total defense could brick GDs.

I can't remember the character names, but I distinctly remember two people bricking them.

Anyway...carry on.

They used to be really easy to brick (like 10 versions ago?). Anyone with like 1,500 defense could easily brick them.

Ya, Gurgi started bricking them like years ago. Anyway, some other critters show a super variety sometimes, too. Will be interesting to hear your further experience, that is, whether all GD show that from now on, or just a variation.

Yeah, I'm sure that's true. I'm just remembering the surprise/milestone of bricking a GD years ago.

If the GD is going to be the end all be all monster in game than it needs to be buffed. I wouldn't be opposed to a new creature if they could fit it in IC/OOC to replace the GD. Its been the top (or near it) for a while.

In a game with no rank cap, this sort of buffing is bad. Just make a new monster. People should be able to rely on monsters behaving consistantly. Sure there could be IC reasons for changing the behavior. Supporting story, perhaps solvable, preferably solvable.

Perhaps the Darshak messing around on TI and in EP has something to do with it.

They've been buffed for at least a couple months now, if not longer.

I can see how some minor changes help but if you want to keep us dominated by critters then just dupe the artwork, give it a new name and buff the stats. Voila! a xxx death which whips Daimoths butt and a GD he can still go toe to tow with.
