More HINTS!
« on: December 23, 2010, 05:37:32 am »
Hey.

In near future I'm going to add a Hint Panel to Prologue. Yes, there is already a hint panel but this will be more "deep". With this "deep" word I mean each hint will be explained a lot better and with many sentences.

Sooo... Start to make some hints! Maybe next version or 1.5 will have this feature. I was actually planning to add it to Beta 1.0 but I was lazy once again.

Also if you have an idea, but don't know much about the case just tell me what it is and I'll write about it then. Here should be hints even you don't know about(even if you are an experienced player)!

Here's an example:

Character Roles

You will later in the campaign have all three characters under your control. Once you do, you will have to decide what role each character plays. Who will be the one absorbing damage? Who will be the main damage dealer? Who will be the healer and who will be the esper user?

There are unlimited amount of different strageties and some people only uses just one or two characters. Is that a good strategy? Try it!

Vitality
The lower your current vitality is, your characters will regenerate less hit points. The higher vitality you have, the faster your health regeneration is. When low enough vitality, your character will degenerate health making you loose hit points. Maximu vitality can be increased by items.

To increase vitality you must eat. Every 90 second one vitality point will drop and some enemies can also lower it quickly. Always remember to have high vitality.

Beyond 5 vitality, one point gives 10% more hit point and mana regeneration. For example when you have 10 vitality you gain 50% extra hit point and mana regeneration. When vitality is under 5, you lose hit points. At 4 you lose 1% of your maximum hit point and at 0 you lose 5% of your maximum hit points. Mana regeneration will not go negative values.

Boss Points
Every boss and some of the mini-boss gives you one Boss Point.  Also every Elite and Epic Boss gives you three Boss Points. With Boss Points you can either buy Lives or Combat Kings for your characters.

Honor Points
Puzzles and Mini-Games can give you Honor points. Also Elite and Epic bosses gives three points. Honor Points are meant to buy more lives or powerful items from Honor Shop. These powerful items can make your character more powerful in many ways.

Calculates
Most of the abilities numbers are calculated and you can see a crazy calculation at the end of ability description.

calc: calculation
magbonus% = increases by the ability itself, some abilities and items like Magic Balls can give more
abilvl = level of the ability
lvl = character's level
int = intelligence
str = strength
agi = agility
magbonus = some abilities and items can increase this

Now that we have learned what each abbreviation means let's start to calculate. Here are three examples.

Impact Flare - (abilvlx50)+(strx3) - Level 3 & 50 Strenth
( Impact Flare Level x 50 ) + ( Phodom's Strength x 3)

Aura Of Fire - (magbonus%x((abilvlx100)+(intx3)+magbonus))/10

Chaotic Rift - (magbonus%+100%)x((abilvlx500)+(intx3)+magbonus)


Here are some terms:



Lives
Espers
Leveling Alchemist
Dig Power
Magic % damage
Vacuum
Lives
Honor and Boss points
Vitality
Combat Kings
Spell books
Dig power
Bosses Events
Item sets
Flowers
Puzzle
Agility
Elite & epic bosses
Honor & Boss shops

You did a pool like that once in the old forums, if I not mistaken... but well hell (heaven), lets make our brains work !
I usually don't hang in chat, so if you want, for some weird reason, communicate with me, send me a pm :)

My favorite character is
Phodom, Fradz is insane. And... Galeoth

Yeah. I started working on this already. If you see any grammar errors just or if you see a better way to write these hints just tell me. Also you can make your own hints or just cope one idea from above and write something. Thanks for your help, these will be seen at the prologue!

The hint about Boss Points are incorrect. Some minibosses and all bosses don't give Boss Points.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Also, the English isn't quite good... The Vitality hint should be:
The lower your current vitality is, the less will your characters regenerate hit points. The higher vitality you have, the faster your health regeneration is. When vitality is low enough, your character will degenerate health meaning losing hit points. Maximum vitality can be increased by items.

To increase vitality you must use food. Every 90 second one vitality point will drop and some enemies can also lower it quickly. Always remember to have high vitality.

Beyond 5 vitality, one point gives 10% more hit point and mana regeneration. For example when you have 10 vitality you'll gain 50% extra hit point and mana regeneration. When vitality is under 5, you lose hit points. At 4 you'll lose 1% of your maximum hit points per second and at 0 you'll lose 5% of your maximum hit points per second. Mana regeneration will not go into negative values.

The Boss Points hint should be:
Some mini-bosses gives you one Boss Point.  Also every Elite and Epic Boss gives you three Boss Points. With Boss Points you can either buy Lives or Combat Kings for your characters.

The Honor Points hint should be:
Puzzles and Mini-Games can give you Honor Points. Also each Elite and Epic Boss gives you three Honor Points. Honor Points can be used to buy Lives or powerful items from Honor Shop. These items can make your character more powerful in many ways.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,

Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed

Thanks, I'll be using ideas you have given. I have given this mission to Killa and I'm sure he'll do a great job finishing our hints. If not, we'll continue his work(he have done a lot already).

Anyway, everything is now on he's burdens and we can rest for now. There's not really hurry making these hints as we already have that quick hint panel already.
