Mellowsmoke. How does it work, exactly?

PostAuthor: Actually » Wed Jan 21, 2004 10:52 pm

It seems to me that mellowsmoke behaves pretty erratically across the various servers. Also, I'm not sure how, exactly, I should be using the mellowsmoke. So...

1. Are the effects of mellowsmoke implemented the same on all servers?
2. Are the animations of mellowsmoke (ie, the "cloud of smoke" animation) implemented on all servers?
3. Both mellowsmoke, and the smoking pipe, are useable. Which should I use, or are the effects the same regardless?
4. Can the smoking pipe be used to smoke other things?

I suggest you check into the Betty Ford Clinic.


I think it's located in Elysia :lol:

1 & 2: The code is the same on all servers, as are the animations.

3 & 4; If you use the pipe, you just "smoke", and get no drug effects. You don't need anything but the pipe for this. If you use the mellowsmoke weed object, you get stoned, and use up the mellowsmoke weed (one use per item).

The effects are highly random, though confusion seems to be pretty common, judging from my characters' experiences in-game. The text messages vary a bit too, randomly.

Mellowsmoke is a nice, cheap alternative to potions of speed...

err yeah, if you like playing russian roulette in battle.

The pipe does random things too....

Snorri has been damaged, been hasted, and been slowed all from using the normal pipe.

True, but I don't think the pipe ever causes confusion by itself. You haven't lived until you've randomly assaulted one of your friends, or an NPC, while hopped up on smoke. :roll:

Sorry Melakin. And Manuel. and tuon. and valendel. and vedette. and...

I've only ever attacked someone once while taking mellowsmoke. And it was a Hound Archon in Arborea ... THAT was a good time ... LOL ... I love dieing in the Deep Underdark in some dark, probably unexplored corner ... you don't have to worry about people looting your corpse so you can just chill with the elves and get more toasted than a ... a ... a piece of ... er ... hmm ... toast.
