#10
Character: Murtock Reave

 

Which Event: In The Pandemonium Wake

 

Responsiveness: 8/10

 

Relatively swift, a few delays, but nothing more than what is to be expected.

 

Balance : 5/10

 

The battles felt.. Off. Even after acknowledging that the balance was off a perm was still applied against great odds and the targeting system seemed uncertain.As someone who uses a sustain build part of my kit is, of course, CC. I understand the decision for CC immunity, but I believe ultimately it is a pitfall that could have been accounted for in others ways with different spell kits and increased health instead. A great deal of my kit, and that of others present, was rendered inert.
 


This score would have been lower were it not for the acknowledgement that the second EC fight was over-tweaked. Instead of making us roll for perms a -1 was uniformly applied to all of us for the next encounter if we went down.

 

Storytelling: 10/10.

 

I know nothing of the lore for what was going on, but Crystik has beautiful roleplay. They are very good at setting a scene, creating presence for the enemies, and overall creating an atmosphere fitting to what the players request. This cannot be denied. For craftsmanship of events I have seen few which surpass this and the amount of effort put into the narrations really offsets the occasional wait since you know you will receive quality.



Fairness: N/A

 

I have no real stake in this. I will lay out the cost versus the gain for the players to decide in combination with the screenshots and disclaimer below. For four party members: There were four perms dished out for three items which were neat development items of the same writing quality that I described before. A cloak which gives +1 vit, +2 power, a sword which gives -5vit +46power +10crit +25phys, and a necklace that gives +4 vit, +3 power, +10 crit, and +5 Agi

 

Overall: 9/10



I was extremely uncomfortable at first due to multiple reasons which we hashed out in DMs. I felt responsible for Crystik deciding to rebirth Vales and we came to an understanding of how it seemed this way due to a perfect storm of misunderstandings. The apology was bold and respectable, but greater than that- Unnecessary. It could have been ignored and swept over in a day or two given the nature of these types of things.

The fact that Crystik apologized here and acknowledged the issues with the balance then proceeded to reach out in DMs to clear things up says more than any post I can make would.
