It's time for Content Poll #4! The questions will be posted below in advance of voting beginning. All questions are Yes or No answers, and you will be free to skip any of them that you're not sure about. Voting will begin ingame on January 3. As usual, for a question to pass, at least 75% of voters must have said Yes.
Please note that votes are always audited and that voting with alts is not allowed.
First off, there's some questions about increasing stack sizes! We propose increasing the stack sizes of ores from mining significantly, because currently it doesn't make much sense to mine when you can use metallurgy to get much more compact ores (and gems!). Also, in the last content poll, it was voted that alchemy crystal stack sizes should be doubled. This poll will decide if they get doubled yet again.
Should the stack sizes of wheat and barley be increased to 10?
Should the stack sizes of all ores (not ore fragments) be increased to 50? This would make them slightly more space efficient than ore fragments.
Should the stack size of mana preservation stones be increased to 25?
Should the stack sizes of all alchemy crystals be doubled for a second time?
Followed by some questions about cosmetic changes to spirit weapons:
Should it be possible to dye spirit weapons?
The glowing effect of an equipped spirit weapon changes color based on its social level. Should the rate at which this color changes be increased?
Historically the Refining skill has been notorious for being difficult to rank because of the failures required. We have the ability to make failures less important to rank the skill:
Should failures be made much less critical for ranking the Refining skill?
Previous content polls only made Composing ranks accessible one at a time. Why don't we just do all the rest and get it over with?
Currently, the Composing skill is capped at rank 5. Should the remaining skill books needed to reach rank 1 become available? They would be found as drops or rewards rather than bought from shops.
It is a minor change, but it may be convenient for characters starting in places other than Tir Chonaill to have access to skill resets without needing to travel to Duncan. We propose allowing Alexina, Castanea and King Krug to perform skill resets as well as Duncan. Additionally, if you have a character at total level 100 then the game considers you to be a seasoned player - but since on MabiPro many starter skills start at rank E, this can be problematic for assistant characters created after reaching total level 100 with your human. We propose checking if the character itself is at least total level 100, rather than if the account has any character that is at least total level 100.
Currently, Duncan is the only NPC that can reset the skills of a player who has not yet reached total level 100. Should Alexina, Castanea and Krug also provide this service?
Should it be possible to reset the skills of a character whose total level is less than 100 even if there is another character on the same account that has reached a total level of 100?
It has been suggested that ancient medals from the elf/giant trans quests become possible to trade:
Should it be possible to trade Ancient Medals with other players?
For some reason, new players start with the Blaze skill at rank E. None of us can remember why that is, but Blaze at rank E has a higher skill CP than any other starter skill does at rank 1. We propose making it possible to remove Blaze from your character. You would be able to ask Shyla to remove Blaze for free.
Should it be possible to voluntarily unlearn the Blaze skill if it has not been ranked past rank E? Players can reacquire Blaze by completing the questline for obtaining the skill. If this questline is completed, Blaze cannot be removed. The amount of AP required to rank Blaze from F to E will be refunded if rank E Blaze is removed from a character. Blaze will no longer appear as a starter skill for new players.
This next question is pretty self explanatory, but we may impose a small minimum donation amount to receive the title. Contributions to Patoots' editor fund will count.
Should players who have donated to the server receive a special title? The title will be purely cosmetic and can be worn in addition to another title.
Next are some various buffs to combat skills that were requested by players. The changes to Taunt and Sand Burst would fix a problem where it becomes impossible to train the skill after reaching a certain CP.
Should the distance from which Hailstorm can reach enemies be increased?
Should the time it takes to set up a tower cylinder be reduced from 5 to 3 seconds?
Should the Taunt skill affect enemies that have higher CP?
Should the Sand Burst skill be able to blind enemies that have higher CP?
Some proposals to make items available in shops:
Should trade unlock potions be added to Shyla's shop?
Should it be possible to buy alchemy crystals from shops in locations other than Tailteann or Tara?
And finally, some cosmetic changes:
Should metallurgy spots be given name tags so that they are easier to see during the day?
Should NPC "residents" appear in Dunbarton, like those in Tara, Tailteann, or Cor Village?
Should Nao's face no longer appear on the red moon Eweca?
Should it be possible to dye gold pouches and item bags?
Feel free to discuss these questions in the comments of this post! Voting will begin ingame on January 3, and continue for at least a week.
