Slayer!!

Postby EternalKnight » Thu Dec 28, 2000 5:59 pm

I recently got the ability to turn into a Slayer at will, and I found I could kill demons easily. But there's always a down side isn't there? Can you guys tell me what's wrong with being a Slayer before I find out the hard way?

Lets See there are 2 downsides to the slayer. Well one of them depends on viewpoint. Anyway the first is that you lose 2 rep which can be an advantage of disadvantage depending on the situation. EG keeping evil npcs happy.
The second downside is this. You can only stay as the slayer as a certain period of time. Then you start to take damage and that amout of damage you take starts to grow exponentially and gets faster. If you don't believe me turn into the slayer and watch your character die hehe.

Since there are such downsides to being the slayer, choose wisely when you use it. Versus demons and Irenicus at the end, very useful. Versus a couple of thugs at night in Athkatla, a waste. Plus, if you have good characters like Keldorn and Mazzy they'll get pissed at every drop of 2 rep pts, whereas Korgan, Viconia, and Edwin would get off on it.
