General Flight - stam loss-NaB

Post by Crusader » Tue Apr 24, 2012 10:52 pm

sver 4849

Location: Anywhere

Char info: Rouge Thief Aracroix 75, Human Healer Channy 74

Summary: During non-combat. while flying either normally as a bird or "with ride the winds" (channy flight power). Stam drops faster while in the air and not moving. Yet, while moving during flight stam rate drops at a slower rate... This may be accurate compared to old LIVE servers, yet I'd thought I'd mention it as it doesn't seem logical. Perhaps they should be reversed. Who likes ppl running (flying) away from them in pvp anyway ;)

Additional Info: I understand you could technically say when moving you could be gliding and working harder while staying still, but I'd thought I'd mention this anyway.

1) As long as it is accurate with the client, we're good.

2) Why isn't it logical? You pretty much hit the nail on your last sentence.

3) You are welcome to make a suggestion on the brainstorm forums about it.

Agreed. As long as it's accurate we're good. As I was saying I just thought I'd throw it out there as some could argue the logic either way saying while flying as a bird you should be working harder to move...but I agree with the gliding statment more so. Was just some food for thought.

I did quite a bit of flying tonight, and also noticed this.. most of the time I ended up able to fly quite a bit with 0 stam. might need a follow up to check if it's synced.

I'm pretty sure this is accurate. It might have been added back in the day to discourage a lot of the AFK macro PL bots people ran since those generally just flew in place.

On live, in flight you used less stam when casting or moving than you did while just hovering there.
