New Feature: Martial Stones
~INTRODUCING NEW FEATURE: Martial Stones~
After feedback that we have received and also after recognizing a real pain point for Monk and Barbarian Players to measure up to their Fighter brethren in terms of consumable management, and given that Discipline Gems were not very effective, we have decided to roll out a new feature in the form of Martial Stones.
What are Martial Stones?
Martial Stones are distributed by the Tempan Church for those who prove themselves to be true warriors, dedicating them selves to the art of war solely. It can only be used by Fighters, Monks, Barbarians Prestige Classes and any combinations of those four only. If you have any other base class that isnt a Martial class these stones will not be sold to you or work for you at all. The amount the stones healing factor in your level at the moment of the purchase. The price will also scale according to your level at the moment of the purchase. This means you cannot send a level 1 character to purchase for you Level 1 Stones cheaply so you can use them as a level 12 character - They will still heal the same amount as the Level of the person who purchased them for you.
As to where to find them - Look in game!
But I still have Discipline Gems! What will I do with them now?!
As of the next reset the old Discipline Gems will be removed from all merchants in the game, so that you can no longer buy them. That being said they will still function perfectly if you still have some caches or reserves of them, but once they are done with that will be the last one of them your PC will ever see. The old Discipline Gems will still work only for Fighters.
DISCLAIMER: THE TEAM RESERVES THE RIGHT TO RE-BALANCE THE MARTIAL STONES, NERF THEM OR REMOVE THEM ENTIRELY IF THEY ARE PERCEIVED AS TOO IMBALANCED BY TEAM STANDARDS, AT ANY GIVEN TIME.
