Hello!

Playing a mage is a lot different than playing a fighter.
Switching often (for me) result in silly deaths.
I normally use Z to walk, and when a monster comes in sight the game stops.

In some places Z is not good.
The sand worm cave for example.

But walking using the numpad is life threatening for a mage of one is not extremely careful.
Casually walking with the numpad is not good.
POFF, almost dead, but the second move is already on the go, POFF, you die.

Is there a possibility to add autouse on a shield when hit for a huge (50%?) amount of damage?

Today there is autouse if opps are in sight, or adjacent. A third option, 'autouse beeing hit', would perhaps be good if you wish to have that kind of solution to this problem?

Tom

DG would most likely not approve of so much automation, I think that kind of input is up to the player, or addon options.

Also, moved to Ideas, as this is more appropriate than general discussion.

Flashing lights or even sounds will not help if one tiny 'double move' is done before reacting.

I think there's a problem with your playstyle then, if you want to play squishy mages, you need to have a more methodical approach to it and not mash buttons.
Also, Con isn't helpful for survivability at all, I say this all the time, but try stacking some HP gear. To put into perspective, you need about 10 Con to get as much HP as 1 basic piece of HP gear, which is 40.

CON does give the Thick Skin talent also, but I see your point and I'll try to remember it.
Thx for the advice.

Resistance won't do anything for you if you don't have much HP :)
If you're concerned about thick skin, you can always meet requirements with gear and heroism infusions as you progress.

Thx.
I do not have heroism yet.
My first point went into wildfire.
My second point into Wild Mental (to survive in the ogre cave as beeing confused there is no good).

So I have regeneration, mana, shield and wild infusion mana.

And to stay ONTOPIC, I now auto cast my shield when they are adjacent which is a LOT better than nothing. A LOT.

Somewhat related, I think ToME could benefit from an autouse on rest/autoexplore. This would make it so reactivating sustains won't break your Movement Infusions and such if you get out of LoS of an enemy but you would reactivate them when resting when you're relatively safe. Currently I use the confirm before using option but this would be smoother.

*blink* Umm… if you want to auto-restart sustains while resting, I may be able to help. :wink:
