I have a feeling that with the introduction of Loaded Artifacts, a lot of people are going to be asking for their stats to be reset. Since most people with sufficient points have already got regeneration/vampire/loaded weapons, a reset is the only way to try out the energy leech/loaded artifacts abilities.

This will be even more so if you implement Monster Master as a third exclusive path.

It would make life a lot easier for you, and everyone else, if it was possible to allow players to reset their own point allocations. Just one button to remove all allocations, then when the player re-spawns they have all their points left to re-allocate.

Just a thought.

That would have to be coded into the RPG core and not something Druid can just tack on afterwards. And Mysterial already made it clear that he feels that letting people just reset all their points and re spend them takes the challenge out of thinking through where to put them.

Rather Druid could maybe just go through and delete all the exclusive skills from people's names that way everything stays the same except which path they choose to take.

But Mysterial didn't have distinct paths. Everything is available to everyone, it is just a question of what order you purchase it in.

So, with the introduction of multiple paths, you either say "each player is fixed, and if you want to try a different path get a new character, starting from level 5", or you allow resets.

It would be possible just to allow points to be removed from Druid abilities. Then you could go down the different paths.

However, at low-mid levels even the basic stats are affected by which route you want to go. For Loaded Artifacts you want high adrenaline, for Loaded Weapons you want health and damage bonus, for Monster Master you want Damage Bonus and Reduction. Later on, when you have them all maxed out, it isn't a problem.

Still, if the resetting of points allocated to Druid abilities is the best we can get, then I am still for it. I would like to experiment and try out the new features Druid is putting in!

I've thought about making a skill that you can buy once every 15 levels that allows you to reset your stats. There's some complexity invilved though because the artifact interface doesn't contain a just putchased method, so I would have to make my own way to prevent it from triggering every time you joined the match.

Also, if someone purchased the skill, they'd almost certainly have to leave the server and rejoin.

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

Just start over at level 5. Anything else is soft.
