    That makes sense for fighters and thiefs, but not so much for magic users. Thank you for the change.

    I've noticed that as well. Again- thank you.

    also, a little bug that should be easy to fix, the monster 'Ruby Mantis' is invisible/a question mark, as in he doesn't have a picture (is he camera shy?)

    And thanks for you hard work too, i definitely like the lower damage /higher hit rate for the special weapons, it made my battle with the mantis close

    According to Sod's Law, buttered toast lands butter side down, when dropped.
    Per nature, cats always land on their feet.
    So, what happens when you strap buttered toast to the back of a cat and throw it out a window?

    I think that missing with a special attack should increase a character's limit, as happens with failed normal attacks.

    When in battle against another DevShedder we should be allowed one final taunt in victory over the disparaged before having to acknowledge that the battle is over.

    I suggest to add some Fire Spells in stock.
    What happens if stock reaches 0 ?

    It shouldnt. The game is configured to not USE a strict stock system, which means it will prolly autostock.

    There should be a prize to the first person to defeat the Atma Weapon. Maybe a moderatorship for the battle arena forum.

    I don't think I will live long enough to get enough xp to have a character big enough to do that!

    You may be right. 20 battles per day * 365 days = 7300 battles per year. I had almost that many via my bot before they reset the arena and was only to level 35, no where close to enough (though a lot of those were vs the dire wolf).

    But then I've been coming to devshed off and on for 3 1/2 years now. If I do that much longer I might start to get close, and they're still working on enhancements. We may end up with some more weapons and armor, maybe some rare items that would give us a shot from a much lower level, or a way to earn xp bonuses that would help us level up faster.

    [edit]
    Case in point- somehow I just earned 5xp without fighting a bot. I only noticed because it bumped me to level 16 ( I had stopped just short of level 16 so we'd have a fair fight).

    Plus, it adds 'flavour' and it's kind of nice to see how many people have bought sticks.
