Black Tentacles - Fix it

Dev Posts - Tue, 08/18/2015 - 09:34
---Quote (Originally by DDOKillingMachine)--- First thing, Evard's Black Tentacles is a wizard/sorcerer spell. *Please provide it to the classes that are supposed to have it*. Second thing, That's a direct quote from the Player's Handbook entry for Evard's Black Tentacles. Nowhere does it say anything or even imply a murky field of black mist stuff that slows everything on the screen to a crawl. This spell is seriously messed up in the graphical representation department. When used, it causes more FPS reduction than a really bad shroud does. Remove the ugly, inappropriate mist, and just leave the tentacles. With the very next update at the latest. Thanks. ---End Quote--- While we do base many things on 3.5 (as well as other P&P editions of D&D), some things inevitably get interpreted differently when building a digital MMORPG, especially one with 10 years of history like DDO. In this case, the artists decided it looked better with mist instead of having the tentacles simply coming out of nowhere. In P&P campaigns, it is not uncommon for a DM to interpret something differently from the book for the purpose of their campaign. Sorry that you do not like this DM's interpretation of what Evard's Black Tentacles looks like. We do not have plans to change the art at this time. While Evard's does not reduce FPS for all players/hardware, we have gotten a few reports from players that it's particularly problematic for them, such as yourself. We're looking into the causes of this. Providing some hardware specs would help us immensely, so we can better reproduce what you're seeing. As for having it in the Wiz/Sorc spell list: We do understand that those classes get it in most editions of pen and paper. We do not have immediate plans to add it to their spell books, but we do understand that many Sorcerer and Wizard players have been wanting new/better spells lately, and discussions have been happening on that subject.

---Quote (Originally by Krell)--- A couple things to watch out for at the end fight. 1. When the gate shuts you can get stuck in the small area between the gate and the waypoint portal, and you'll be unable to use the portal from the backside. Fortunately Kerchac can still throw you up in the air from that point if he is near and I was able to land outside and use the portal to get in. Either go in as a group or hang back if others are too far ahead then use the portal to enter. 2. In the end fight area when Kerchac throws you up, there are invisible walls in the SW that you can land behind and be stuck in a sliding animation. I used /stuck to get out the first time. The second time I managed to get thrown up again and landed inside. Best not to fight the boss next to the wall. Bug form submitted. ---End Quote--- Thanks for the feedback, I will add it to the list.
