Not really. have you ever got a nidbane on your ass? It rips it apart hard. Takes fuckin months to heal. No medicaments.

I've survived plenty of nidbane attacks, one of those times I got really damaged and knocked out and IT TOOK A WHILE, in fact it never fully healed, I just died on the char before it did.

Get KO'd by nidbane = good luck, your wounds are pretty much never going away.

Didn't consider that, the only nidbane I've ever faced was a shit tier one.

Otherwise this looks promising.

Not a bad idea!

The biggest step in the right direction.

IMO next priorities when it comes to combat are:

1. Animation optimization so people can actually do combat without the game being a slideshow

2. Drinking while running, so you don't die so easily while outnumbered

3. Make combat a bit more one-shotty or put in a surprise factor in any case, so as to make skill more of a factor, mistakes more of a factor and stats less of a factor. Right now it's very, very easy to predict what your opponent wants to do and is going to do. In old combat there were plenty of yolo surprise moves that damage you and give you attack bar, remove your defense and give you attack bar, etc. and those used wrong could get you killed, but used right could win you the fight. Combat system currently lacks these.

These things combined with the lack of permadeath would make a really good game.

I am left wondering about this. I managed to bring my client to 10 FPS only when I spawned 200 random-clad players, on my modestly good computer. I'd be glad if you could verify whether this might be caused by some of the custom-client combat mods.
