Elf changes fine-tuned

Based on your feedback, we have fine-tuned the Elf changes that were made two weeks ago.

Some of the previous "harmful" actions have been re-categorized, and are now in the "non-harmful" category.

Specifically, the following Elf specialities have been changed today:

  1. Opening a portal is no longer a harmful action. This means that the extra 3% strength-loss does not apply, nor does the increased rune requirement.
  2. "Tire thieves" is no longer a harmful action. This means that the extra 3% strength-loss does not apply, nor does the increased rune requirement.
  3. The "Kidnap people" action is no longer a harmful action either. This means that this action only gets a -20% thievery effectiveness, instead of -80%.
We hope that with these changes, following the strengthening of the Elf, this race will be even more attractive to the more peaceful players.

Good luck, and enjoy the game! :)

Elf changes

To compensate for the huge protections the elf countries have in all areas of the game, the following changes have been made to the elf specialities today:

- Harmful spells require more runes (+400% instead of the previous +100%)
- Harmful spells cause a +3% strength loss
- The -20% thievery effectiveness on harmful actions has been changed to -80%

Effectiveness of non-harmful thievery actions (such as stealing gold, runes, scrolls) remain unchanged at -20%.

Other specialities of the elf remain unchanged.
