Choking too weak?

Postby Lanphrost » Thu Sep 24, 2009 4:52 pm

I think choking needs to be beefed, especially against mages. I can run entire areas using nothing but minor healing and never have to worry about choking, even when I'm starving. Admitted, it's harder, but choking just isn't killing anyone. I don't think you should be able to cast when choking (Runic incantations, I believe, are spoken to cast), which would greatly increase the potency of choking, and make it fair to non-magic users who can't quaff potions when choking.

I just find choking to be a useless status if it's meant to be curable only by players and NPCs, but weak enough that only people who need potions would worry about it

If you're choking you're meant to get cured or die.

Not having a "oh fuck i'm choking" contingency plan is plain stupid.

It could do with being more threatening, because people are clearly just shrugging it off.

I think a couple of ways to improve on choking would be
preventing casting of any spell
not being allowed to use potions
bandages should not restore hp while choking.

Won't bandages still heal hitpoints if not cure choking?

Choking is already my absolute least favorite thing in EUO. Only item wear chapped my ass more. Shit, I'd rather get an instant death from a chest than end up choking and have to contemplate whether or not I wanna go find another person to help me out for the next few pointless wasted minutes of my time :--;:

I didn't know my thread would get any posts, let alone meaningful ones. I'd never heard of bandage curing choking, so I guess that does make it fair, and my original intent becomes null and void. But choking is extremely annoying and yet not a great threat at the same time.

Not a great threat? Ever tried PD?
Also, you can heal choking by going to healer.
