Great show last week. Thanks to Karv and Branick for bringing about the best app of the century with the Pineleaf Countdown.
I had two questions for you. First, when and why do you use stealth skills? I am in the lower levels and the only time I have used it was when I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to fight anything. Any other time I use it it lasts like 30 seconds before I am spotted. Any advice?
Second question. Why do you think that Elves have a one handed sword bonus as a passive weapon boost race trait? It seems kind of redundant for a passive because if I wanted a sword bonus I would play a race of man character because their sword bonus is better and more comprehensive. Also you have to kill 100 drakes to get it and by the time you find that many (unless you want to grind Gondamin) the bonus just isn’t worth it compared to the relative ease it takes to earn the race of man’s. To me it makes more sense to give elves a spear boost for a few reasons. First, no other race has one while both men and elves have a sword damage bonus. Second, it makes classes with elves more flexible and unique. What I am saying is, I know it takes resources and testing to add something or change it so I am not expecting a change. However, a spear damage bonus on an elf makes more sense to me than a sword.
Thanks for such a great show!
