    Why disable firehorns against players completely? Just turn down the cast range. It used to be like 2 tiles and then was changed to 10 like spells. This basically gave legitimacy to the "Battle Bard" template. Tweak the ability, dont just completely remove it. Turn the range to like 6-8 tiles. Maybe give it diminishing damage the farther away the target is.

    Firehorns were the most trammel thing ever. your seriously trying to claim it took any skill to click a horn then target me for immense damage? Seems like your just crying over your broken template being gone.

    this is a common balancing issue in all games

    Skills that only do damage and have no utility are either broken or shitty depending on their damage tuning. The only way to balance them is to make the damage identical to another spell but then what's even the point? - it's just a cosmetic difference

    Adding new templates is almost pointless because there are only 3 mechanics in the entire game - damage, poison, paralyze

    If one template does more damage then minmaxers will obviously use that template

    This is also why I think DP and swords need retuning because a DPd katana is far and away the superior dex weapon. It does the most raw dps while simultaneously poisoning.

    Then also nerf pets attacking players... getting one hit by a meta pet is nutty. this shard does cater to pvm . I agree adjust the tile rate and dmg. don't just eliminate it all together. its very easy to kill a bard mage ... or nerf it , remove poker, and add more champs, ban more players . run this shard to the ground. uo is deaaaaad, keep building those meta pets and do champs all day. its gonan pay off in life, I promise guys.

    what is the difference between a fire horn that usually fails ... usualy only does 12hp... compared to a tamer saying all guard me while syncing ... you get hit with fs and breath. or if its a meta pet your done in one hit before any one can even cast a spell...
