Custom whips: allow in the duel arena?

Post by Mike » Sat Nov 23, 2013 4:29 am

The poll results from this poll (viewtopic.php?f=36&t=10916) seem pretty clear: all custom whips will be restricted from use against other players in the wilderness, but will be available elsewhere (you'll even be able to kill monsters with it that are in the wilderness).

However, one thing I'm not sure about is whether we should allow them in the duel arena. After all, if players see that custom whips can't be used in the wilderness, they may assume they can't be used in the duel arena either and get surprised (in a bad way) when their opponent suddenly takes out a whip of chaos and tears them down.

Let me know what you think. If you can tell me the reason(s) why you chose either option, that would be nice as well.

Note: no matter the outcome of this poll, custom whips WILL be allowed in places where it doesn't matter that much, such as player-owned house dungeons, combat ring, clan wars, castle wars (in the future) and fight pits. The only thing I'm not sure about is the duel arena.

I don't know how powerful they are, but if they are allowed in duel arena, make it for non staking only, or some kind of way to warn the other player of a custom, or a no custom option.

Yes. We don't want people to be unsure of what they can and can't do. Whips in duel doesn't present any problem.

Make sure they can't be used in a duel and everything will be fine. I'm sure people would still like to stake said whips.

As long as the option above is clicked, you can only use the same weapons you and your opponent have in common.

You must agree to even start the stake.

Why remove them from the Duel Arena? As long as the players there don't act completely clueless when staking, they won't get scammed.

Where'd you go? I missed you so.. Seems like it been forever since you've been gone.

I need help fantasizing over Selena.

What new new said, as long as the player isn't clueless, they'll be fine.

Yes, why not?

It's an other item ID then the normal abyssal whip. Therefore if people do a whip only stake they can't just take it out and (cheat)

What you could do is add another page-if selected to have limited weapons-to be able to choose which weapons you want to be allowed to use. This would help a bunch with stakes when people stake customs, and all other types of weapons.
