Just because you can use a wand, does that make you smarter?
I think spells should only strengthen wisdom because you have to be knowledgable to use them.

I'm not sure if this is currently the case, but it would be good for slightly limiting the slightly over-powered magic users...

Nevertheless we need you to understand that we do not want to hurry or rush to release a game that is not completely finished.
Cool,just take your time and don't speed up because of some people.
Better later and good then before and bugged and unbalanced/undone

Of course no, wisdom is the 'strength' of apprentices, Wand uses mana to attack, and ur damage grew up with wisdom, so, wisdom need up while use wand :confused:

Wands will not affect your wisdom.

Will they be affected with wisdom? I have 23 wisdom and I hit arround 22 - 36 damage with the worst wand. Seems too high for me.

I have a few things ive noticed about the game.
1. it is sometimes very hard to select your target, i dont know if you are going to have a battle screen, like a certain other 2d isometric rpg, but easier targeting would be nice.
2. Its super hard to aim spells, and i know that the goal is to not shoot the selected target, or to be super easy to aim, but its almost imposible to aim at a moving target.
3. the container system is somewhat dificult, it would be nice if there was a way to go to the bag that contains the bag your looking at, and also, I like the fact that the bags dont close when they reach the bottom of the screen, and i would like to see a scrollbar that would allow you to scroll ALL bags up and down, so you can have more containers open than your screen allows, so that if u open too many creatures, you can scroll down the entire container bar to get to the last container.
4. sometimes the autowalk feature autowalks me into walls. kinda anoying.

\other than that, everything is super, i cant wait to get on when the next test is up, or the game is released officially, keep up the good work!

Yes, I agree the path finding system isn't very good.

Some quick thingies:
1. Just for fun, if mana potions are "pink", make the mana bar pink, too! Or viceversa; make mana potions blue. I like the first one more, because blue bar reminds me of Tibia xD
2. There is this thing when writing a message and then quickly switching channel. It shows as if there was a new message in the channel, which is mine.
3. Sometimes when walking around holes with mouse, you'll fall down. It could be left that way, and be a nice feat, but make monsters fall too.
4. Javelins suck. They should be either stronger or more resistant.
5. Help channel is forbidden for lvl 1 players. Guardian told me it was to prevent spamming from noobs, but what if there is a level 1 player in real need of help? (stuck, general doubts, power abused, hacked, etc) They should be able to talk, but with a spam muting or something.
6. Give NPCs more dialogues about other NPCs, the city, the area, monsters, etc. It's nice talking to them and finding about stuff (I like to do so xD)
7. Check small wrong details like weigh of corpses or items, typos in NPCs, syntax/grammar errors when looking at items ("an appentium gauntlets", "26 meats", etc).
8. Make npc's dialogues appear in a different color in the chat window, because sometimes when more people is around it can get tricky.

Well that's all for now, please take it into consideration :)
Nice server!

edit: I just remembered!
9. Make some convenient key map for laptops (I use one)! It's playing with a touchpad and having your hands crossed. Would be nice to have an alternate set of arrow keys, like Alt+WASD :)

Blue would be the best choice actually. The mana bar's color should be easy to differentiate from the health bar which is red. Pink and red are quite similar so we probably won't change the bar's color but the potion's :)
Thanks for the other suggestions! Keepit up everybody. Any feedback is welcome.
