The potion is 2mk now.

That's 60 bucks by itself
its 2mk because they took it out of the steam packs.

inflation due to reduced supply.

potion was worth about 800kk or about 16 smithmagic hammers, which comes out to about 12800 ogrines, and since 11000 ogrines cost 20 bucks, we can safely assume the potion is worth about 23 dollars and change, therefor no, the potion is worth slightly less than the discount.

i think you get more ogrines with the pack now than you did before. 90 days of booster is what 9000 ogrines, so thats worth about 16 bucks right there.

theres a scroll of absolution in there, thats worth 4000 OG, or 7 dollars.

phoenix is worth like 150kk, 4 dollars.

15000 ogrines is worth 27 dollars give or take.

protoflex another 200kk or so, about 6 bucks.

vital potions x10 = 100kk, 3 dollars

white sadida bag 100-200kk 3-6 dollars.

6 double exp kibbles, which is worth 12 pet levels and you can feed them all to a pet at once.

explain to me again how this package, for 25 bucks, is worthless?

it seems clear that they as a race are supposed to be more advanced, perhaps per legend more pure and wise, but the reality is aren't right? they go crazy, they do morally wrong things, they are observed to be villainous, even when trying to be a hero.

you're more learned on lore than I so I will assume you are correct that they are meant to be pure and wise. this fits the definition in wiki that they are "idealized" but if that lore is diagesis, (not uncommon in ankama) then the reality portrayed within the canon makes the race more interesting, and not without its flaws.

this seems to fall short of the definition.

wiki also insist that the word now connotates wish fulfillment, and the fact that eliotropes always win, (except against other eliotropes sometimes,) can lend one to think this. but yugo isn't the only character that always seems to win. like others i think percidal/sadelygrove/tristapin or whatever he is called seems to be the guy who most fits this role, but we dont think of iops as mary sue. I mean he gets beat down and comes back to win, multiple times.

wish fulfillment almost requires the consumer to relate to the character as an underdog. the eliotropes don't seem to ever be the underdog. the definitions I find don't equate infinite power with wish fulfillment.

so they may be a poorly written god-like race, but i think they, as a race, fall short of the wikipedia and google definitions of mary sue.

what would you consider as negative evidence for mary sue? that they have to be interesting and robust characters? i think the conflicted morality and angst injcted into yugos character are meant to address this?

Catcus Set box bugged: lose items on unmerge Character name: Donjon
Date and time: 11/26/2014 8:17
Map: havenbag
Server: Nox

Bug description:
in my havenbag the dummy wearing a catcus set appears to be wearing nothing, additionally a guildmate of mine merged a catcus set and it dissapeared from his inventory, to test his problem I went to my havenbag to check on mine and noted the simialrity between this and the father kwismas set bug we had a while back. so i went and observed the invisibility of the set and when i removed it from the dummy and unmerged it, mine dissapeared too. to test that the items were not just invisible I filled the rest of my inventory with items. relogging the toon did not make the items reappear.


Reproducibility process: unmerge a catcus set box, items are gone. put set on a dummy, dummy does not appear to wear the set.

Caligari,

I feel like you, I, and the wiki are perhaps using different definitions of the term.

could you define what you mean when you say mary sue?

so yugo started as a flat mary stu, but ended up a little bit more robust. (if cliche)

that said his being an eliatrope doesn't make the whole class mary sue, I mean the other two eliatropes we knew about prior were villains (that dofus one and the one from season 2.) so at least can we agree that its not a mary sue class?

(i guess it just doesnt resonate with me to mock eliatropes for being mary sue because i just can't relate to them?)

in that he is idealized? doesn't the whole dark eliotrope thing demonstrate faults?

is it because he fills some wish fullfilment niche? on some level sadelygrove fills this niche better, doesn't he? I mean he gets the girl even though hes a dope.

As for example Sramvas are a largest problem in Srambad, and they're able to summon them.
Good thing because of crappy AI you can counter summoned Sramvas by just standing 1 space diagonal from them and then they will only damage you once every 3 turns :/
they are low ini, and everyoe uses fire so... i think solo sramvas are the most hunted thing in srambad.

i think of the dogs as the problem mob in that family, tbh.


Quote (Nox16 @ 26 November 2014 22:00) *
I've always been the advocate of counters in pvp. Like there should be a hard counter for summon is a or summoner in general that's hard for them to fight against. Don't think me picking on summoner alone I think this for every class. Like I personally think foggernauts should go back to being tank breakers *more so than now* that's just sort of an example.. idk I'd personally like more counters to the bs that some classes have. Like I'm fine with a class being strong I just think it needs some counter. Like I play a xelor were strong were just countered bs.
counters makes PvP a complex game of rock paper scissors lizard spock

not that theres anything wrong with that.

i think people injected that rumor via assumption. I got the impression it was no where near ready, so if i where to guess I'd say january patch.

so this post isn't linearly in topic with anything so far, but I wanted to address a term that is getting bandied about: mary sue.

I'd like to point out that a mary sue is a character designed for a creator (or i guess consumer) of whatever media to inject themselves into the story, like the main character in those teen vampire novels...

calling yugo a mary sue implies that tot sees himself as an tennager eliotrope? or that the fanbase is supposed to identify with an overpowered orphan teenager?

calling enutrophs a mary sue is not accurate, I think. Its like calling a superman a mary sue. Rather eliotropes are just overpowered, like superman, and the story of wakfu is a story of overpowered children. maybe it appeals to the secret nerd desire to find hidden magic power in themselves, but no more than, say luke skywalker, or for that matter, Sadlygrove.

eliotropes are more a deus ex machina plot device, than a mary sue.

for instance if i were to write mary sue fanfiction, I'd inject myself as an enutroph. so for me the description of eliotropes as mary sues doesn't hold up. it doesn't ring true.
