So it's not meant to be played in GZDoom 4.0.0?

* Timon's Axe has a base damage of 40-62, Axe of the Depths has a base damage of 105-140. What is your feeling, how much should the Axe of the Depths base damage be increased to feel like a worthwile weapon? Its design is by purpose that it's very slow, but it should be so strong you want to use it all the same.

After playing around with Axe of the Depths more, I think the issue is more aesthetic rather than functional. The attack animation makes it look like the Fighter is just lightly waving the axe in front of himself like a feather duster, and it's not a satisfying swing like Timon's Axe. This does affect gameplay, as it's hard to tell when the strikes are going to connect, and timing is crucial with the Fighter because he needs to dart in and out of range quickly.

I had the icon of defender active at the time, so the poison shouldn't have affected my Cleric. I'm not entirely sure what specific monster types caused this, though I was able to reproduce it fairly consistently through regular use of the spell.

rambo wrote:* Exterior of Hedyntin Citadel: The invisible blocks should stop monster movement the same as missiles (they are transparent 3D cubes in the air). Can you tell about where you experienced this?

It seems to happen every single time I go through Hedyntin Citadel, and always with the dark bishops and dark cardinals. It looks as though they're spawning outside the blocks. I did not see any of the afrits or dark clergy start on the inside and then move through the barrier.

No, it comes bundled with Vavoom. Still plays great though :)

Forgot to mention this anomaly in the player's inventory.

A crate of icons of the defender can be purchased at Neusus for 625 gold. However, the total you get depends on the current amount in your inventory. If the amount is nonzero, you end up with 12 total. If the amount is zero, you end up with 25.

This is a minor bugfix/tuning release that is 100% compatible with existing 1.6 savegames. Get it from SourceForge or ModDB.

This patch includes all changes from the 1.6.1 patch as well (entries marked with asterisk). This patch can be installed on any Scattered Evil 1.6 full installation, regardless of whether it has been patched to 1.6.1 previously or not.
