Ok Uthgar take that mortal character of yours and join a group of say a warrior and 2 mages. Don't use blind and see who gets switched to, I bet it will be you (= if it is you, then you'll know what I'm complaining about. Not that mobs switch, but that they are ALWAYS switching to the cleric unless ...

Uthgar I do use blind, lots.
It usually fails.
I'm also usually switched to before I get over the assist lag.
If i don't engage, and just cast blind I'm often switched to. The mages, rogue, bard etc in the group never get switched to if I'm around, which seems to me as a bit odd.

Have any other clerics noticed that Mobs will switch to them consistenly? It's become really annoying for me when I'm switched to several times in a fight, in spite of only hitting a mob not casting spells at it to get it's attention. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this or if it's just me (=...

Three blondes are walking in the woods.
The first looks down and exclaims
"Oh look! Bear tracks!"
The second looks down and says
"Those aren't bear tracks silly! those are deer tracks!"
The third one looks down


and that's when they got hit by the train.

Not a good idea in my oppinion.
item costs 100 platinum so you bring along 90 P. if you don't have enough money the storekeep won't sell to you, so you just keep using the skill until you succeed.
if you want better prices get a higher charisma (=

Treladian, on halfings not getting that extra attack often, my level 6 halfling warrior seems to get it about 40% of the time with perfect dex.

as far as a skill goes why not call it 'nature sense'. It would be an active skill with a lag time associated with it.

Blade Barrier would be cool, a cleric's version of fireshield. Would have to be a higher-level spell though.

as for the switching to the cleric in the group, there's a simple solution.
Get a Druid in the group (=
Gythi seems to be the #1 switch target on EM!

why not use hit/dam stats for adding to spellcasters spell duration/damage hit would affect things like duration, the saving throw needed to resist the spell, damage would well, affect damage.

I never understood why only shamans got Gheal. Seems to be a spell that would be perfect for high-level clerics. And I dissagree with the argument that it's a Shaman's 'signature' spell.

Bards aren't really a combat oriented class, so I don't think backstab would be appropriate. however more rogue skills like pick locks, detect traps and hide would be good additions IMHO.

I chose Corellon Larethian, of whom I was (and will be) a cleric. the aliases i had set up for my spells had me saying some phrase, usually praising Corellon, before casting them. I don't remember encountering any temples dedicated to specific gods though.

If the game didn't have risks it would rapidly get boring. Dying is one risk, one that most players do often. I found that the "think we can do this guys?" type battles were the most fun.
