Death in combat with a bear or troll or similar mighty creature should definitely qualify you for Valhalla. Especially if you fell after slaying multiple bears, succumbing from the wounds you got from all encounters combined. Plus, you can drown in combat.


No because 99% of deaths to bears are gona be people being stooopid, not bravely 1v1 a bear. more like you didn't wall it in probably and died like a pussy. It should be there to mollycoddle people who got ganked, make them feel a bit better.

You are going to grind and throw away 200k LP just to play in valhalla? you will get there on your main anyway, great plan buddy.

What are you talking about. It's 50 int and 100k lp. Fresh alt with 0 hunger can get 50 int fast. 100k lp just throw some shit on him for a few days, or even shitter shit for a week.

I see some changes with cave ins - Did you guys change the only shp damage?

I had an odd, unlikely theory that, at some point in dev, you changed the damage of cave ins to simply take all of ones shp away ( on the idea that you needed to test it and because you have uber chars, needed it to take all shp away) my thoughts of this were because I noticed that's exactly what it does is take away all of ones shp. Even after gaining some more total hp it was doing the same all shp damage. Probably not right 8-)

Unless - Cave ins that I encountered would have completely killed my char and was somehow prevented by only doing shp damage (unintentionally) ? I dunno its not important but I was just curious
Ohhh that's how I make a sig, cool

is that the throne of the Gods in the back? will they (as in jorb/loftar) sometimes be seated there to bear witness to the glorious fallen? :)

you guys continue to impress me. no game has ever been able to hold my interest for this long, which makes this probably the best game ever created.:) well done, guys.

71 UA
32 MC

raise shield means x3 MC value so I effectively have 96 MC vs 71 UA

both my moves below took 1 hit from a fox, and as you can see the difference is fucken negliable. I knew delta stuff would make x3 means less, but wow. Still raise shield is a great move for its other properties, but the x3 thing doesn't seem to matter much at all :(

EDIT:

Gunnar (ty) did same test with 60 ua and 84 mc and

can see his shield up bar is more full but yeah still pretty simular.


96 vs 74 is barely different, btw, once you sqrt. My screenshot (yeah im gunnar, i subbed the wrong account) shows a significant difference, really, at 252 effective mc. I think its fine how it is.

ps: please add armour penetration for ua attacks :p

pps: the more interesting case is vs a bear or something, where you can go down from it destroying like 1.5 ua blocks to only 1 with shield block.

It's cool but you've done better patches in a day... in my view.

It's cool, but, when do we get the crafter paradise where every available material, including silver and gold , are laid out in never-ending stockpiles around a central arena where we can build, craft and decorate to our hearts content ..... :D

Plus unicorns and rainbows .... :lol:

I approve!
The gods have made a world of beauty and blessed it with the dawn and the twilight so we can can pale before the wonders of their creations. That can only mean that the gods are also artisans, artists and lovers of the crafts. I'm sure they'd have an endless hearth where we could build, share and enjoy the good life forever.

Please, Jorb & Loftar! Make that happen too :3

PS:
I've just got into the game and was walking outside and for the first time I felt something that I've never felt - courage to die, instead of just fearing death. I've always been really cautious about my main on all worlds, I've always feared turning on every corner. But now something has changed - I was thinking "Damn, if I go I shall go with honor and feast in Valhalla!" I've never felt that in any game - the promise of something beyond death (in games with perma-death, of course). It's an incredible feeling. Thanks once again for another unique, incredible feeling from that great game <3
