Ru's abilities requiring MP


Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

Ru's abilities requiring MP

In trunk, Ru's abilities (apocalypse and power leap) require MP to work. This is a bit strange because Ru does not require either invocations or evocations training, which presumably give MP (other than just leveling up).

I do not see what justification for this is, really. Were they supposed to be too overpowered, and needed a nerf? I can perhaps understand that power leap was a bit overpowered, since it cost basically nothing except exhaustion, but this seems like a hack-y way to fix that. Perhaps add drain to power leap instead, if you want to nerf it? Or one could go the Makhleb route and make them cost HP.

Re: Ru's abilities requiring MP

Only Trog's abilities don't require MP/HP as far as I know.

Edit. Ashenzari/Jiyva require MP.

Re: Ru's abilities requiring MP

Also note that Ru's abilities have cost MP since initial implementation, this isn't a thing that has ever changed.

Re: Ru's abilities requiring MP

Probably just a brain fart. I must have just remembered it wrong. Thread can be closed.
