    Question Maximize Finger of Death = BUG?

    Has anyone ever purposely Maximized their FoD?

    I don’t see how 3x the cost is worth Maximizing the 3d6 of damage from FoD when the save is missed.

    Is it a bug that Maximize doesn’t ignore FoD the way it ignores PK?

    i've had max and empower on and with enhancments to lower costs it still costs 130 sp ouch that was a bad mistake.

    I wish you could set up spells for never maxamize or never empower or extend so that even if it's on your choice overrides that.

    Same thing for Slay Living, Destruction and even Holy SMite......

    Frustrates me to no end when I forget to turn off Max after dropping a awesome blade barrier.

    It would be really cool to be able to set up spell options on your hotbar

    so 1= haste, 2= extended haste, 3=empowered firewall, 4=maximized, empowered, extended firewall, etc.

    Well the spell does 3d6 damage, thats why the feats apply. Any spell that damages can have the feats applied.

    As jaitee said and I mentioned in my original post - Maximize doesn't affect PK and it also does 3d6 on a failed save.

    But you aren't answering the original question - Do you purposely Maximize your FoD or is it always an accident when it happens?

    Turbine, you can hire more developers for the game. We operate on a giant Theocracy of Debt, so go all out finding developers for the best MMO out there

    A buddy of mine just noticed this 'BUG' on his Sorc. He was ****ed after he blew 75% of his ample supply of spell points.

    Anyone out there ever figure out why Maximize would affect FoD and not PK? Anyone ever intentionally activate Maximize for FoD?

    PK is an illusion and I believe D&D rules say metamagic feats for damage don't impact illusions so that part of the implimination is correct.

    The problem is the way they have us add metamagic is a pain in the *** and I'm seriously hoping that it improves with the changes hinted at on the 5.0 splash screen.

    Due to popular demand, we'll be removing Empower and Maximize from the full suite of instant-death spells.

    That's good.

    Now, can we implement a more robust shortcut system that will allow the creation of weapon-sets and metamagic-enhanced spell shortcuts, with custom color, icon, and text hinting, so that you guys won't have to spend your time tweaking each spell for us and instead make/let us do it ourselves, to personal preferences?

    Pretty please.

    While you're at it, please remove cure light, moderate, etc. spells from being heightened.

    Hmm, this leaves me curious what the metamagic changes in Module 5 might be.
    Have a question about the Eberron Setting?
