Just got home after a tiring working day, and got super lucky to see Hollow's message!
Finally got that pet :)
As always, thank you Hollow and all AQ staff! I started in 2006 and that's an unbelievable 15 years of great fun!

So is the Necromancer riding armors the only thing being pushed to Friday, or everything planned being pushed to Friday? Curious as I want to know if I should be checking in throughout the day for the other stuff, or give up as I will be out of the country for a week or so and prob wont be able to play at all during that time. Anyone know? Thanks.

I'll admit, I am slightly disappointed that none of the Necromancer Cavalry armors appear to be Darkness/Other compression armors. Champion Paladin Rider is still my go-to compression armor on my mage in order to fit nuke coverage of all eight elements, and it feels aesthetically wrong to use with my character because he goes all-in on the general goth aesthetic with Vampire/Bloodmage/Necromancer equipment.

That said, I'm still very happy with this release. Wind Necromancer Cavalry is probably the most powerful wind armor for mages now, easily comparable to bloodmages if you have the Arctic Tornado or Warmaster's Burst spell due to spellcaster lean, and probably more powerful than bloodmages if you have Arctic Tornado or Warmaster's Burst due to the absurdly powerful EleVuln it can inflict.

More powerful than Imbue of Lore Aeromancer robe using artic tornado?

Once you take into account the elevuln? Absolutely. The Decayed Breath skill on all of the Cavalry armors appears to inflict an elevuln of a whopping 202.61%. Nothing to sneeze at when paired with the already-potent spellcaster lean.

Porcelain items are great. I know people that really need them. Necromancer is a beastmage's dream. I have a request though. Would it be possible to make cupcake provide potency for freeze-like effects instead of specifically ice freeze? Can the burn include prismatic burn?

Gotta agree with mr ranger above ^^ I like the the bronze clones of the items from last year a lot but the cupcake is a little underwhelming

Due to the tweaks made to Savage Were and some other stuff, I didn't get a chance to fully look over the Guardian Dragon Jr stuff this week, but I'm going to be looking into potentially making some tweaks to it. I do understand why players feel it's underpowered, being only once per battle and having a +20 to the save certainly doesn't feel good when it doesn't inflict. Main thing is it's paying lots of damage for that 100% attempt chance, while most pets have ~24% chance to attempt per turn. But I will take a look into both Ice and Bronze sometime next week.

As an avid collector of the were/vamp forms I am excited to see the changes! I only forgot to pick up the original vamp form the first year but am excited for the twisted versions!!

Kurtz: I believe they are making the annual were/vamp forms more useful due to power creep.

From Cray/Kam:
quote:

The Predatory Vampire Forms haven't been changed

Update: Savage Werewolf Forms (Only the scaling ones, so Hurricane, Shattered, and Franken):

1) The 25% chance to deal +20% damage is now rolled per hit for all weapon/special/spell attacks while in the armour. (Previously rolled per turn and only on weapon attacks).

2) The armour now has a toggle that pays -3 MRM Blocking and causes you to replenish 5% of damage dealt as SP. This is capped at 50% Melee in SP cost (196 SP) per turn, and factors out the mob's elemental resists.

Thanks, Kam for the hard work. I understand that Guardian Dragon Jr.'s guaranteed attempt to freeze makes the roll quite poor. Frost Effigy, for reference, has a mere 12.6% chance with all hits landing to attempt to freeze.

I absolutely love the look of the Necro Cavalry armors, and the elevuln they inflict is incredible. It's great to get clones of the previous Porcelain items just in case people missed them last year. The 19th Anniversary Cupcake is unfortunately much less useful than last year's because we already have great F2P miscs for freeze and burn potence (Frostgale's Remorse and Sunburst Amulet, respectively).

I just wanted to ask if it's possible to make the Lances trigger as spell-boosters instead. Because the Necromancer Cavalry armors all have spell-type skills, the lances do not work with the Necromancer armors' skills at all. As is, these lances serve better as Paladin Rider armor support than as Necromancer Cavalry support.

^^Seconding the comment about the lances. They seem bizarrely anti-synergistic with their own armors due to them all dealing x0.8 weapon damage, which is a real shame. I'd appreciate if the Necro Cavalier Lances specifically were tweaked a bit to affect spell damage. Maybe something similar to the Luminous Whiff weapon that's also in GGBs, but slightly stronger since the trigger is conditional.

Thanks Hollow! Can't wait to see the fixes to this and the Frostval variant if it's possible.

With reference to the video below, i saw the amplify 1st skill is SP but the 2nd skill is it MP only?

Sorry, I was wrong, all the first skills use SP. For the second skills, wind and earth have an SP toggle and ice used MP to cast a spell.
But, ice/wind are spellcaster lean and fire/earth are FD. So not very useful to a warrior.

I did like the Necro rider armors before they were nerfed. They're still okay thanks to the EleVuln skills but the Spellcaster Leans ones (Wind, Ice) one, got a huge nerf.

There is no longer Elecomp on the Haunting skill. All you have is the Spellcaster Lean. This essentially boils down to just Standard Elecomp but with even more penalties because you're taking 1.25x damage and only dealing 0.8x with no added benefit. It's a direct downgrade to existing Elecomp armors with the niche of being usable with any spell.
