    How many quests will there be? Will there be chains (quests leading to more than 1 quest or quests unlocking other quests or... of that sort)?

    Also, will quests be saved completed or will they be repeatable? Or.. are you even ganna have some saved and some repeatable?

    Questions!

    There will be four kinds of quests, which will be elaborated on later, but the main chain quest of the game is Story Quests which follow the main storyline and link together each chapter.

    The latter, Xeno. Story Quests are not repeatable.

    If you maybe read you will know why. I'm just going to quote, pff.

    This is because we don't want confusion with our already made classes that are unrevealed and the ones you would make.

    Will you guys have cast times or just instant-cast abilities?

    Cast times would add alot to gameplay and allow for additional ability mechanics. It would really add a new aspect to gameplay (you could even have abilities like curse of tongues from WoW that slows a unit's spell casting time by 50% - stuff like that)

    BTW Oziris I really like the death area. Have you thought about adding graves (maybe popping out of the rocks or floating in the air)?

    EDIT - have you guys asked to make this a hosted project? It's obviously a highly watched mod and becoming hosted would allow you guys to have multiple forums for different things instead of just massing it all in one thread. Plus we only have like one active hosted project atm and it's a campaign.

    Abilities do have cast times, and there are other abilities that either accelerate that or hinder it. Cast times are very much a part of the game, especially classes that require such mechanics. What I am considering on adding is the flexibility of cast times and dividing it into intervals. For example, there are five intervals, but if I manually stop the cast at the third interval, the spell will still commence, it will just deal less damage. There are all kinds of possibilities.

    With the arena, I do not think graves are necessary. That arena is a pivotal part of our 'death' system, and when I mention arena, it may strike you that a part of this system involves fighting in the afterlife. More details will come eventually. ^.^

    We have considered it, and I've even PMed Ralle and asked him whether it was worth doing it. He said yes, but I'd really prefer to have a playable version of the map ready before we advance to that step. Having a playable map would certainly increase the activity on our hosted forum.
