No, I would like it if the "Bane" attack would stay arcane.

But maybe change the berserk special as wesfreak said, or just give him full fledged berserk, attack and defense.

if the ranged attack is going to stay arcane, then the melee attack should at least be changed to pierce or something that skeletons are not weak to. i like the rage idea though, maybe we could have it go say 3-5 rounds-enough to do a lot of damage to a mage, but probably not enough to kill it.

hmm. well then how about a blade attack? give the mage a short sword(or a long sword for the higher levels, after all even gandalf had a longsword and he was the greatest mage in LotR)

I kinda like the hammer thing. But I've just had a thought. A lot of indian hammers (which is what I was saying he should be equipped with) have a spike on it, so why not have the berserk attack be pierce instead of impact, then give him another impact attack without berserk?

i suppose so. makes less sense though, considering it would be easier to smash than spike in a frenzy, but balance overrides real life.

Well I would rather not have it this way, but for the sake of keeping the unit somehow as I had perceived him this is what must be done, unless we make his damage almost 0.

You know, I was just thinking that I should do something tonight for the era. It's been hard with finals week (I've stayed up till 4:30 multiple times this week doing papers and such) and plus I haven't been feeling well, AND I reorganized my room which made my computer less easily accessible.

I'll see what I can do though seeing as I don't really have anything that I need to do tonight (final class on Monday, but no classes till then). I was initially waiting to see if Zero posted anything I could steal from :P, but as he hasn't I guess I'll have to use my imagination (better start praying real hard!)

While we're keeping tabs on people..

Turuk, you got any of those descriptions ready yet? And Zero, I know you said you'd be more productive around Christmas break, but I just thought I'd check in to see if you've had a chance to work on anything?

Also, wesfreak, thanks for all the balancing tips you put forth, it helps a lot (not that I really know much about balancing (as you can tell from the Welkin) but still lol, thanks :) ).

Yeeah. When I said that I forgot I had the same finals. The good thing is that I've managed to get them so that I have most of them tomorrow. That's also simultaneously the bad news. Cramming time!

But yeah. Expect me to at least try to work some over the weekend. And I plan on starting Steelhive back up then too, so I have a load of stuff. :P
