Looking at life through the eyes of a tired hub
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city
Now, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder
More wood for the fires, loud neighbours
Flishlight riveries caught in the headlights of a truck
Now, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder
Now, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder
When I became the sun
I shone life into the mans hearts
When I became the sun
I shone life into the mans hearts

What I don't get is how do you know if an item is +backstab? As far as I know, there is no way to really tell. Part of this is due to the fact that the backstab bonus is not displayed anywhere, another part is due to the fact that an item can have stats which YOU don't get but another person does (because of level, class, race, alignment, etc, restrictions).

Further backstab bonus is really unlike any other stat, it shouldn't be compared to stopping or full heal anything because it works completely and totally differently. You don't have to have +backstab bonus and in fact, other areas may be better for you. It is your job to figure out the right balance to make your character as effective as possible.

Anyways, your point is taken -- Nas believes we need more +backstab bonus stuff in the game. My guess would be players feel like they can never have enough bonuses in general.

Best regards,

Say your prayers little one
Dont forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they arent of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, dont say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
Its just the beast under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Were off to never never land

I hear you man, but the same goes for thieves. I did have a high level thief some time ago and to be honest i didn't think there was anything wrong with equipment that was available. Thing is there wasn't any thieves around so I didnt have to worry about others hoarding any rare equipment. So maybe that's the problem here. I've also been crying about getting some cool equipment for illuisionists back in the day when you weren't around, and now years later, nothing new, nothing changed.

:???:

NAS -- ARE YOU TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE AFFECTS OF +HIDE? HOW ABOUT +SNEAK? HOW ABOUT SIMPLE THINGS LIKE +HITROLL OR +DAMROLL? WHAT ABOUT OTHER ATTRIBUTES YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT (BECAUSE THEY AREN'T DISPLAYED ANYWHERE)? FURTHER, WHAT YOU DESCRIBE IS ONLY WHAT AFFECTS YOU... THAT DOESN'T MEAN THERE ISN'T SOMETHING +BACKSTAB ON THE ITEM THAT YOUR RACE OR ALIGNMENT DOESN'T GET, FOR EXAMPLE.

My point is simply that you can tell if something impacts your backstab, but you do NOT necessarily know if it is because of the +backstab bonus. Just because it is what you believe doesn't make it so.

I know you've played the game a long time and your input is appreciated and respected, and again, YOUR POINT IS TAKEN. I understand you think the game needs more +backstab bonus equipment. I was merely trying to point out that you can't really know for sure.

Best regards,

Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin under house
Guess Im livin, Im a mouse
Alls I gots is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
cause I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

Im half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, Im half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, Im half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, Im half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Feelin uninspired
Think Ill start a fire
Everybody run
Bobbys got a gun
Think youre kinda neat
Then she tells me Im a creep
Friends dont mean a thing
Guess Ill leave it up to me

Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

Im half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

Im half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Im half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be,
Half the man I used to be

Nas, first off, I don't think you are taking my point into consideration. I *am* taking your point into consideration as I've now said 3 times. Your character hasn't even touched 20% of the items possible to obtain in the game. You may have tried lots of different races, but you haven't tried them all and I was just providing that as an example of the things that can affect whether or not a bonus is given. Have you tried each different alignment? How about each class? Have you tried them all at every single different level? The backstab bonus affects more than your class. Oh, and by the way, fully 20% of the characters on DL have the ability to backstab -- you are NOT the only backstabber. How can you know how much damage your backstab does anyway? NPCs (even those of the exact same type) have different hit points. How do you know if a NPC has a partial resistance to backstab? (Especially if it is very minimal.) Hitroll and damroll can be (AND ARE!) on things besides weapons. For the record, I was able to find both an item for a spot you didn't list as well as the potential to more than double your current backstab bonus.

I wouldn't go so far as to say I think you are wrong or that we don't need more items that give a backstab bonus, I just don't think it deserves the emphasis you've placed on it. If someone wants to build it, I'm all for it.

I hope this clarification helps.

Best regards,

--Nezmar
