    Current Spell Bugs:

    Thoughtburn / Ignite Energy series do not stack with other necromancers. You cannot cast the same rank, or different ranks, or different series of the same spell category. This is likely due to the slot-1 Decrease mana and hp by xx per tick.
    Suggestion: Make this a standard magic-based DoT, and lose the fancy decrease mana line. The amount of mana mobs have today compared to how much this spell drains = insignificant. There is no way to drain a mob of mana to prevent them from casting spells.


    ----

    Splurt/Splirt series. Two issues.
    1) DoT extension effects are added to the front of this spell in the form of 0 damage ticks. Considering even vendor-purchased focus is 26%, and we have innate +3 tick focus & potion extensions...this makes splirt a 27-33 tick spell from its 20-tick base. It is absolutely broken that you may have to wait 13 ticks after casting this spell before splirt does its first, minimum point of damage. Prior to the type-3 focus revision during SoD era (which changed dots from being extended after they wear off, to being extended before they start their duration timer), splirt used to provide its maximum last-tick damages for your detrimental extension bonus.

    Suggestion: modify splirt so it cannot be extended, and dramatically increase the damage of the ticks so the overall dmg per sec is on par with a 5-tick pyre spell.

    2) Like Thoughtburn / Ignite Energy spell series, the splirt series also cannot stack with other necromancers splirt, regardless of rank or which category level of splirt/splurt/splart.

      Iksar ldon adv stone person in Cab and the guy in the Karana's will not give you the text to initiate the adv stone quest.

      I know I have mentioned it before and Kyth said to try the npc in CR but I havent had a chance to see if that works, and they should fix the right npc in Cab either way cause 99% of new Iksars out there wont realize they need to go to CR if it even works since that spam they receive when they ding 15 still tells them to go to their home city or the npc in the Karana's... nothing about crecent reach.

      Message of the day - Zandramadass has removed twitch from his spell book due to his desire to avoid further punishment for others shortcomings.

        Speaking of the adventure stone, everytime I zone into the new commonlands zone I get the yellow text. I get it on my 75 nec (that has had his stone since lvl 16 or so), my 59 cleric (who has also had his since 16 or so), and another alt of mine who also had his stone already. This is the only zone that I recieve the message in still, I don't get it if I go back to my home city or CR...

          I forwarded these along..I'm not sure what if anything will come of it, so maybe crescent reach would be the way to go(atleast for now). Thanks for your feedback, keep it coming.

                Snare problems

                I have been grouping with a 68 necro lately who, I am assuming, does not have their OoW snare desecrating darkness so they are still using embracing darkness, lvl 63 PoP snare.

                They are able to overwrite my level 74 Coruscating Darkness Rk II.

                Most of time happens this way ... I bring a mob back towards camp after a snare resist. I run far enough ahead of the mob so that I can get snare off but like a dutiful group member/necro they had begun casting their snare as well. Well, not even a full tick after my snare has landed, I get the wore off message but the mob is still snared. So I recast my snare which then overwrites theirs.

                /boggle

                This does not seem right and I do not see anything in Lucy as to why the 63 snare would overwrite the 74.

                  Agress with Todwelt above.


                  Root wears, on it's own, no message about it wearing off; yet if some1 -even mob- breaks root early then the spell worn off message is there.


                  Invisibility is wearing off you get messages - Nec AA invis(s) where is the wearing off mesasges? Ya get one that it is down - little late then, but no "you feel yourself starting to appear"
                  --Speaking about invis; we have single target FIXed ITU and yet it gets overwritten by just about any other ITU.

                  AtD no longer shows what level is being cast at; ala Ldr AA's; just says soandso casts <army of the dead>. Could we get the AA level input back into the casting code>? Haven't checked SoD but possibily same issue there.

                  Ok enough for now...

                    Maybe he has the time clicky and a better det duration item? Maybe the longer duration of the two will win in the stacking code.

                      They have never been to time nor done a time raid that I am aware of I should note that I have known this player for over a year and they just started a necro recently .... I have Hanvar's belt (Belt of the Stagnant)which *should* be better than anything the level 68 necro could get their hands on? /shrug

                        Hrm maybe this is by design. I can see cases where it would definitely be useful. Now if only SK snare could overwrite necro snare like ours can overwrite theirs that'd be even nicer.

                            Perhaps not with degradation of your foci. I'm not really sure what's available tbh, people don't complain about gear much anymore. They know it's a lost cause!..unless it's jerxlaben! ::sadface::.

                            I've asked if this is intentional..it's a "prathun issue" (tm), so I'll try to catch him on beta and see if I can get his attention there(anyone else there could do that too!).

                              Honestly, I like that Embracing Darkness overwrites other snares. That way I can use the PoT snare stick to resnare a mob that another necro (or me) has already snared before the snare wears off. You want to be able to overwrite existing snares or else you'll have to hope that the other snarer does not forget to resnare.
