Changing the color type of siege weapon damage

Post by LordTyrantCort » 2012-04-09

For years I have heard that people get confused on the difference of fire ball damage to siege weapon ammo damage. Both are green damage type, but one is magical (fire ball) and one is not. And with all the prez clarifications. These damage types are getting farther apart. And for the last five+ years during the wars and events have seen/heard people say "I have fire pro on... And it says it protect against green damage like fireballs..." so they don't accept siege green damage types.

Edit from blue-I propose to change siege weapon damage type to white and "blasting"damage.

Couldn't we just say that fireball doesn't do green damage?

Blue as a choice will make every ballista bolt look like a holy javelin and catapult ammo look like a lightning bolt, otherwise I would say go for it.

We have pretty much exhausted color choices though. Even plaid is taken :)

We could just modify this line in the RB:

"This spell does not negate the area effect of a green weapon; in other words, only the target is protected."

That is the confusing line.

we do not yet use "white" as a weapon color :) as hard on gear as we are it would soon be a different color though ... red green brown black grey lol

Exhausted color choice?! Never. Violet, Pink, Orange, Brown, Cyan, just to name a few.

I'd love to see the pink siege fire.

....Why don't we just say fireballs do fireball damage?

That is another way...
Propose to change fire ball to do magic damage... And leave siege ammo as green.

Doesn't even have to be that. It can (and it's most simple) just say "fireballs do this" specific only to fireballs

Yup. As someone pointed out in Senate (Lanham, perhaps), no one says "GREEN!" when a fireball lands. They say "Fireball," or more likely, "BOOM!"

I favor fireballs to be called fireball damage and siege ammo to be "GREEN"
