using tears on a gw

Postby Zionist » Sat Jul 21, 2001 4:21 pm

Does the tears add to the shapeshifter/greater werewolf form? Like for instance the greater werewolf has 21 strength + 2 (from the tears)=23 strength. The reason I am asking is because I thought by using the Lum machine from watchers keep would increase the gw form to 22 strength. It didn't but it did increase my human strength from 17 to 18. I think it is because when in gw form it is only temporary. I also thought that by wearing the fire giant girdle it would increase the greater werewolfs strength to 22 but it was still stuck at 21. I do have TOB so is it possible by using the tears it would increase the strength of the greater werewolf by taking the evil side without having to be stuck at 21 all the time?

Ok but my question is does the tears boost the strength in the greater werewolf form from 21 to 23?

No. Anything you change into always has a set, and seperate stat line for it.

I thought the bonuses from the Tears were on top of other adjustments...

I have a long way to go before I get to use the tears. I have some people tell me I can use the tears even on a fixed value of 21 for the gw form which would make it 23. I have others say this is impossible. Hasn't there been anybody out there that has tried this at all? I am very curious and would like to know if it is really possible.

Read what you just wrote. FIXED value, not variable, so when it says sets strength to 21 i'm pretty sure that's all it will ever set it to.

I'd love to be proved wrong. (Not inluding morons hacking the game into a Diablo clone. This does not include you people fixing problems or trying to make the rules a little closer to the origionals.)
