Loki's Guide to Balanced MOBs

Certain mobs are harder/easier to kill for their level, and therefore should reward experience commiserate to their difficulty. Consider the following table as a guildine:

XP Parameter MOB adjustments Rationale Examples
-50% MOB with health adjuster of 4 or less, inadequate armor, low damage and low attack for their level. This sort of trash mob would be a way of generating mobs that provide a setting, without creating a huge level range for the area. Children and pests in a high level area with a tight level range.
+25% Aggressive + Mobile,

brotherhelper (or any *helper) + other mobs in room,

Helper + Mobile

These mobs can start to gang up on players, increasing their difficulty. Cityguards, Gangmembers and faithful zealots
+25% Mobs with more than 20 hit point adjustment and/or improved combat stats. The increase in health and/or combat stats will make the fight last longer and consume more resources. Veteran mobs, lieutenant mobs, etc.
+50% MobileAggressive This is a very deadly mob, as they hunt down players quite readily, making it more difficult to recover between fights. Hunters, Assassins
Varies CombatAbilities Providing a Mob with abilities increases their difficulty, depending on the skillset. Specific combat style mobs (archers, trappers, healers, etc)
*2 classness Adding behaviors such as Mageness or Fighterness greatly increases a mobs difficulty. Special area mobs, area bosses

Notes

  • Use integer values only. Prop_ModExperience(*1.5) will result in an error, and read as Prop_ModExperience(*0).
  • If this property is applied to a GenSailingShip, it should affect the amount of XP awarded during a ship battle.
    • Applying it to the ship's area may also affect XP awarded during ship battle, but will cause the crew to earn the modified experience for any action that occurs on the ship (combat, crafting, etc).
