Attack skill should go up even if your not hit. If ur using a bow then you only get xp for ur level and is a waste. this is a bug, whats the point of a bow or spears or even throwing stars? Attack skill should go up if you hit, that's all I got to say. From you very own Zombieowner :).

    Hello :)

    Thanks for your report! I would suggest that we should think about a splitted attack xp level for bows and spears and another one for the normal attack with swords/daggers/other weapons around instant attacks. This would maybe also help to make bows and arrows more popular.

    If you have some time you it would be great if you can join #arianne on IRC to talk about that in more detail :)

    Greetings

    Note: It's a feature during normal attacks that you only get xp when you hit the creature you are attacking.

    Currently you get ATK XP whether you hit or miss the enemy as long as the enemy has successfully hit you recently. I think it would make more sense to gain ATK XP for every successful hit regardless of whether or not the enemy has hit you. Misses and blocks would not count toward ATK XP. This would be beneficial to players who enjoy fighting in parties. It would allow all party members to gain ATK XP not just the character receiving the damage, and make group fighting more enjoyable.

    Doing this would also resolve the ranged problem without having to create a separate stat, though I am not apposed to created a ranged stat.

  • I am afraid, this may make camping too easy.

    Perhaps we should limit ATK based on experience level instead?

    I'm not sure what camping has to do with attack experience.

    You can easily stand in a corner and attack bigger, stronger creature without doing anything else than spending arrows and there are enough places on maps at which you can hide from other attacks in the meantime. So your attack xp can raise when you use arrows without being hurt. Maybe that is what hendrik meant? :)

    While I understand the reasoning behind not gaining atk exp with ranged weapons to mitigate camping. I feel it results in ranged weapons lacking a bit of appeal. Maybe a ranged stat isn't the best solution but I think there ought to be something to benefit archery a little more.
